Very accommodating for our large group of 18 which included twin babies and toddler. Didnt feel cramped or in the way. Like the dishes and silverware, not whimpy. Great service! Not rushed!
Thanks !

We had someone at our table with a food allergy. I was impressed that our waitress asked if anyone had any allergies before we placed our order. Then the chef came to our table to further discuss and ask a couple questions about the allergy. Very nice experience there.
As for the brunch it was delicious. 2 of us ordered the pancakes with apples with a side of bacon that was thick and delicious. Pancakes were filling and large. You could easily split this if you wanted to eat lighter as we each took half ours home. Additionally it was nice that the dinner menu was also available as my daughter ordered her favorite Maggionos salad and my niece ordered her favorite pasta.
Very nice visit.

As always, Maggiano's provides consistent, high quality italian food with great service. We have never been disappointed with the quality or selection and we never leave hungry. I enjoy their cocktails as well as their mini desserts. You can take your family here or go for a special event.

Overall the service and food were great! We went for our 12yr anniversary and were surprised with a plate of cookies and strawberries with a candle at the end of our meal. The food tasted delicious, but would have preferred vegan options (instead of vegetarian... we chose pasta with marinara sauce, but the marinara sauce has butter). Overall it was a great anniversary lunch!

Excellent food and service! It was simply delicious. We had decided to do the family plan, and it was well worth the cost. We were very satisfied and SO full by the end of our meal with containers of leftover food for the next day. I will definitely be returning soon and will recommend Maggiano to family and friends.

The food was perfect, but I felt it was over priced. I had the Veal Parm and it was $28, kinda high. My wife had Chicken Marsala and it was just $19. Service was the biggest challenge. Our sever was very pleasant, but made a couple critical errors. First when our food arrived, I was given Veal Marsala. I immediately corrected the server who brought the food and then our server came by and immediately saw the problem. She apologized and said the correct dish would be out in a few moments. Finally when the meal was over and we were given the bill, we were charged for the Veal Marsala and the Veal Parm. When we asked the server if she reviewed the bill befre she gave it to us she said no. Then she realized why I was asking. That is when I realized that originally she placed the wrong order for my dinner and never removed it from the bill.
I must admit I did not discuss with the manager and probably should have. But no manager came by to talk with us as well throughout the evening. And in fact we left a generous tip that was really not earned in this case.

Out for an afternoon lunch with friends. Assuming a lingering holiday crowd I made reservations through Open-table. The restaurant was relatively empty and I was promptly met by the host who was pleasant and helpful. Our seating for five people was somewhat tight when seated in a large booth but we did not feel like moving to a table. Although the restaurant was not busy at all, service was very slow. It took several minutes for the server to come to our table to take our beverage order. Which then took several more minutes to receive our soft drinks. After three requests, we received bread which arrived after the appetizers arrived. Food was consistent however my lasagna was warm at best. Normally it is served considerably hot at Maggiano’s. This lunch was mediocre at best, however I am a longtime customer, and food and service generally always good.

The restaurant is always a great option for a nice dinner. The servers were attentive and our food was very good. If you are on the frugal side this may not be the best choice but whenever you want to splurge this is one of the best places to do so.

The food was awful. My granddaughter had to wait for her meal after everyone else was served. The drinks were awful. Service even worse. We did complain and they did take off some money off of our bill. Don't think we will celebrate there anymore.

Initially, I was concerned about having a holiday business meal so closer to Christmas and right at the lunch hour. However, once again Maggiano’s proved to be at its best! I am very glad I chose Maggiano’s. Our servers were extremely attentive and made everything a big success. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. We had a great time! Thanks once again...

We both had the flounder stuffed with crab meat served on top of a hollandaise sauce and a red pepper sauce served on top of it. The entree comes with a side of grilled asparagus. It was very tasty.

We had a fantastic dinner. There were 15 of us and we did the family style dinner. The food came out quick and it was all delicious. We had two waiters, Thomas and Ramon and they were very quick to bring us refills, silverware, and plates. For such a big group we did not feel ignored and the food was fantastic. We will definitely be back!

Made reservations 2~3 weeks 8n advance for 14. Got seated 30 mins late, they did buys us drinks in bar but would have rather have had them live up to their reservation commitment.

Corporately ownered and operated, a family run business never would have operated this way.
