The bruschetta bar was amazing ! We ordered a trio of bruschetta and each was unique and flavorful. Italian beef with giardiniera was outrageous.

We love the Marco's Special. We can eat on it for 3-4 days! Service was fantastic! Even though the food is scratch made we didn't have to wait long at all and everything was good and hot. We try to visit at least once a month. We also just learned that they have a brunch on the weekends! Can't wait to try it some time too.

My husband and I needed a date night out and so we scheduled 6pm reservations for dinner and scheduled a movie about 20 min away at 8pm. We arrived about 5 min late (called ahead to tell them), and then when we arrived they said they were getting our booth ready. No problem, we took the beeper and went to the bar. There were several open seats at the the bar, not busy, and there were 2 bartenders. One guy was making a few drinks and the girl behind the bar- she looked at us, knew we were there.. but waited 5 min before ever approaching us for our drink order. She seemed angry to be working and as though we inconvenienced her by ordering a drink. She barely spoke to us, and ended up not giving me prosecco like I had ordered (it was more like a moscato. I also know this because when we got to our table I ordered another prosecco and you could see the clear difference in color and taste between the 2). We got our table within 10 min, no problem there, but didn’t see our waiter for 15 min to even say hi! We had the slowest service over dinner I have ever had at maggianos. We were constantly looking for our waiter to get the next part of our order in or to order a drink. We needed to be out of there quicker to get to a movie, and didn’t end up leaving until 750pm! I requested the check twice while still waiting for the food to-go to arrive back at our table. Additionally, the chicken Alfredo my husband ordered lacked sauce and the noodles were hard. We our avid lovers of maggianos, and this is the first time I can honestly say it was a horrible experience! Needless to say, it was such a let down to a rare date night out for us!

The food was delicious. Restaurant was not too loud. Was disappointed that the server got my take home dinner confused with the other diner. Last time I checked and was able to correct before I left, this time I can home with the wrong entrée. Very disappointed.

Messed up my order and I didn't receive an apology or anything. My wife and kid ate while I waited on my order. We got sick from the food about 6 hrs later so we had a very restless night. Happy anniversary to us SMH. Not to mention a lady in the booth behind us coughing like she was very ill and shouldn't of even been there but that was the only thing that wasn't the staff's fault.

I am a fan of Maggiano’s. We took our extended family there for the celebration of our grand daughters first communion. The server was polite and attentive. I think the kitchen messed him up. A couple orders arrived much later than the others. The food quality of the brunch special was mediocre at best and the comments of my guests was that the food was ok. I thought $300 for 7 adults and 2 kids on the expensive side for basically a lunch and add a $60 tip not to penalize the survey. It was not busy and I have a sense they were not organized to be open. Very disappointing. This is probably the first review complaint I have registered in 5 years.

Service was very slow. Our waiter was brand new and getting slammed with a Saturday night full house. He was not familiar with any of the specials, available drinks, etc. Would have thought for this shift there would be more experienced wait staff. Food was ok. A bit saucy for me.

Our server did a terrific job. We were disappointed in the eggplant parmigiana as excessively salty , lacked flavor and texture was soggy. Chicken Marsala was terrific. Salad was good. Apple crostata dessert was very good.

We love to come for Marco's Dinner. You can't beat the everyday special. One app to split, each person gets an entree, plus one to take home and a dessert to split. We ate on this for days! This night we had a bit of trouble in the beginning with service (we were by the restrooms and didn't get service for a bit) but after we got our waiter we were fine. My husband was under the weather and our waiter even brought him tea and honey to help with his cough. Good food - good price and value.

The host, manager and servers were professional yet friendly which was much appreciated. The food is really good, and although the menu seems limited given the number of chicken inclusive dishes, we three sisters all were quite happy with our choices (veal, steak and chicken). I highly recommend the risotto - yummy! The nicest surprise is the mini dessert. None of us would have ordered a whole portion of anything. We ALL ordered the small portion. It's a treat!!!
