Tonight's meal and service was exceptional. Our waiter made my daughter birthday celebration extra special with cookies and a candle to make a wish.
The value of take a meal home is a bonus!

Not really pleased with this visit. We come here once a year as part of a family tradition and other times. Waitress seemed to be new. Heavy accent. Did not get all of our food. Snapped at bugs flying around our table. Bugs were flying around our table. Don't like salad and appetizers out together.

Martin was prompt to attend to our table. We ordered calamari and it came out nice and hot. We ordered dirty martinis and they were nice and cold. The chopped salad was so large we split it 3 ways, it was very good. I ordered to penne rustica and got a free lasagna to take home for later. It was my husbands birthday and my parents were treating. We were all stuffed and I had a Togo box. Martin brought over a plate written in chocolate saying happy birthday with some lemon moon shaped cookies, and 3 mini skinny candles. Stuffed and we still ate them.

It was an exceptional dining experience for our party of 14. Jorge worked very hard at keeping my family's requests met and we were second floor seating so he had to really to work. I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to dining here again

There was a murder mystery theme in one of the banquet rooms. I man ran out of the room firing a fake gun that resulted in one of our team members injuring themselves. The manager pointed blame at the party involved, when he should have taken precautions to ensure the safety of his customers.

Even though we lost a couple from our reservation, Jeff was terrific! The food was great & the gathering of old friends fantastic. Our table was under a vent on a cold day & a few were uncomfortable with th cold air down our necks.

I enjoyed the food ! I had heard a recommendation from a friend that the decorations were beautiful and great food. She did tell me that it was noisey, and it was. Extremely! There is one area that is suppose to be quieter, but a party was there.
Thank you!

We had a great experience at Maggiano's it was my first time there, and the food, drinks and service were awesome. The only thing that bother me was when we stayed late and we lost our time track, the two last persons who where there to clean our table, make noise to allow us to leave. I think was very rude I understand because they want probably go home. Maybe they need told us that the restaurant was closed.

Food was good. I ordered the salmon and thought it was a bit overpriced compared to the quantity. Everyone else received huge portions and all of the other dishes were taken home. I thought the salmon would have come with a linguini or some other side pasta.

I recently relocated to the Plano area for work and was pleased to see Maggiano's locations here in the Dallas area.
I've frequented their restaurants in Short Pump, VA, Troy, MI and Boca Raton, FL for several years and now this Willow Bend location is on my short list of favorite spots - everything is consistently well excecuted from the kitchen to the service right down to the overall relaxed ambiance.
As luck would have it, my first visit here to Willow Bend was on Thanksgiving Day as my family is still in Florida and I didn't have time to go back for the weekend. I visited the restaurant with a friend and colleague in the same situation and it was a great visit.
Thank you for saving my Thanksgiving, Maggiano's and staff!

We went to try the Thanksgiving menu and they did not disappoint... It was only a little pricey at $40 per person, but the value was incredible! We left with enough leftovers for 2 more meals. Food was delicious as always.

We celebrated our Thanksgiving meal with a couple of friends at your Willowbend location. Jana was our server, and she was, Outstanding! She was attentive without hovering, very knowledgable of the menu and portion sizes, and provided everything that we could have needed. The restaurant was beautiful, not noisy, and the seasonal menu had wonderful variety and quality selections.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday meal experience!

Thanksgiving made easy and delicious! Great menu choices. As a Southerner I found the dressing too “gummy”but edible. The gnocchi and creamed spinach were the “stars”. Lots of food! Finished with great desserts.

fantastic Thanksgiving dinner. Only complaint was seated right in the traffic pattern for all diners as well as the waitstaff. Was constantly crowded and bumped, which took away from a very great experience. Loved our waitress Mariah...she was wonderful!

I went there after using open table to schedule a reservation. Was told to wait 15+ minutes for our table. While I was waiting, all these people that got there later in bigger number was being seated so I asked why I am not being seated a head of them they said something like our reservation is merely ahead of walk ins. Manager intervened giving me some attitude regarding the situation. He said, I just booked it 6 minutes ago so why am I complaint and I told him, I chose what was available on the open table. Waiter was pleasant but the whole open table situation needs tweaking.

We were very warmly welcomed by the staff brunch this morning. Enjoyed standard warm bread with oil and vinegar while we went over our brunch options. I had the mimosa while my friends had the bloodmary. We had not been there before so the manager and the executive chef greeted us. I had the veggie fritta which was fantastic. The small amount of melted smoke mozzerella on top enhanced the flavor without make it too heavy. The potatoes are perfect with a little parmesan to add the right amount of saltiness. We were also treated to the chocate cake which is amazing. Chocolate cake, mousse filling, genache frost, super rich yum.

Thanks so much for making our group feel so welcome!
