The server herself was great. The time it took to get the food was ridiculous. We heard servers and cooks arguing in the kitchen, one about one of the other waitress took a prepared bread plate. I get it, but it was so loud we heard it in the dining room area. From seated to finish, it took over 2 hours. A little much in my opinion.

We had an enjoyable evening at the Maple Grove Buca. We ate family style and each entrée was delicious. The apple gorgonzola salad was light and refreshing, the chicken saltimbocca was delicious, and who can resist the spaghetti with those great meatballs. We let our granddaughter pick desert and she selected a sampler of four deserts, it was delicious, however, the portions where huge and bested the five of us. Overall, a nice place for a family or group to have a nice evening out and a great meal.

It was a little slow...our waiter, Luke had six tables he was in charge of, and two were large parties, so our waiter Luke was great, but service was a little slow. Also we all ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and it was pretry good, except super light on the sauce. But meatballs were delicious and about the size of a baseball.

Other than the prices for alcohol, it was amazing. $18 for a 9 ounce glass of wine (when you can get a whole bottle of that brand for $9 is a bit steep!) The food was great and the service was good. It's a fun place but again, the price for a glass of wine is nuts!

Seemed very crammed into a small space. We couldn't hear each other across the table, it was so loud! Food was good but the atmosphere was a little much. I wish the server would help with serving sizes as we ordered way to much food without knowing.

Food is amazing! Yes, it is expensive, but if you join the email club they give you great deals. We went with a larger party and our server was not on her game. The manager seemed to notice this too. Getting everyone water took about 30 minutes from the time we were seated, bar drinks were even longer. Orders were taken about 20 minutes after that. It was nowhere near as busy as we usually see this place and according to the manager it was nothing like the day before we dined as they served around 2000 people on Christmas. We were disappointed but I know I will be back. I live almost 2 hours away and I still think the food is worth the drive! It's almost 4 stars but between the service and the state of the restrooms, 3 seems more appropriate. Hope I can give it a better review next time!

How this place has gone downhill. It was noisy as hell, even though we had a reservation they gave us a terrible table, they would not honor a deal posted on there own website, and they charged over $35 or two drinks. I have been there before and enjoyed it many times, but will never be going back to the rudeness of the Maple Grove location.

We Requested the kitchen table. It was fun to sit in the kitchen and see the bissiness of the staff. Everyone was very friendly and good natured. However it was way too loud to have a conversation. I would classify it more as an entertainment then a dining experience. The food was excellent. The portions are huge as expected. We will be eating leftovers for a couple of days.

Food and service were great. Big issue we had was that one of the people in our party is wheel-chair bound, and this location has no curb cut-out in the parking lot for wheelchairs. So our guest had to wheel around in the rain looking for a cut-out then eventually had to get help to lift over the curb. We felt really bad that we invited her to a dinner at a place that doesn’t accommodate wheelchairs. Seemed like a safe assumption. When it was brought up to the host, they said “yeah, a lot of people complain about that”. Is that even possible that this is a known problem and the ownership hasn’t spent a couple hundred dollars to have the curb cut?
