Beautiful restaurant, but very dimly lit for dinner. Food is over seasoned (such as too much butter sauce and capers on salmon piccata). No birthday dessert provided and birthday is not acknowledged. Wait staff do not wear masks so beware.

I like the atmosphere, the servers and the food here, but we recently went on a very busy evening and waited about an hour after we ordered until our food arrived. The noise level was definitely higher than normal which made it difficult for our table to have a conversation. Overall I recommend Galliano and will hope things click more next time, as they have in the past. The food is very good and staff is friendly.

Had Melissa as a waitress and she was excellent. Food was excellent as were the cocktails. In a time where labor shortages are present you wouldn’t notice it at this place. Finally a nice meal with good customer service, hard to find! Will definitely go back.

We had a wonderful time celebrating my mom’s 76th birthday. Kyle was a wonderful server and we enjoyed the food and ambiance. Plenty of free street parking. Highly recommend! Wish there was an area to drop her off by the door.

I met up with my friend for dinner at Galliano and it was delicious. The drinks were delicious - the Think Pink and the Pears and Prosecco. Then we had calamari as an appetizer and it was so good and fresh. Then for our meal we both had the Fettucine Mediterraneo with the Rosé sauce. I asked them to make mine a little spicy and it was perfect. The pasta was fresh and so was the seafood - the crab meat, scallops and shrimp. They also give you a great portion too. It was so good and our server Hailey was wonderful. I will definitely be back soon.

Neighborhood Italian. Attractive pleasant modern venue. Friendly service. Very good Italian food for MD (its not Italy, NJ or NY, after all). Reasonable prices and big portions. Good parking. Very nice outdoor eating area.

Food was outstanding service was inconsistent but OK. We had to ask for bread about three times. But it was worth it for the food taste and presentation. Drinks were strong.

I took my daughter for her birthday! Table was ready - no wait! We were greeted quickly by our server. She was extremely pleasant! Food was delicious! The pasta in my shrimp scampi was about the best I’ve had! I will definitely go back!

Food was great but service was slow and not as good as previously. This was our second time there in 2 weeks and I’m very sad that service is going downhill. This used to be a favorite spot, but it definitely seems like times have changed.

We introduced our friends to the restaurant. I had raved about the wild mushroom pizza. All of the food is good but the pizzas are extra delicious. Our server, Kat, was amazing. It was evident the restaurant was very busy but she made sure to check on our status frequently. Our friends were delighted with the quality of the food and said they would be willing to return.

Food is always good. At times there is drama with wait staff and confusion on table assignments and bills. For a great environment they need much better training on wait staff and how things are run with flow from kitchen. Bar staffing is a bottleneck on peak periods during evenings and weekends. Adding 1 more bartender would make a big positive difference

Galliano in Maple Lawn has a lot of positives: The food (nice menu too), the décor, the ambience, the high energy buzz are there in spades. The servers are personable and reasonably attentive too. However, this place is poorly managed. My wife and I certainly hope that management can get its act together, because we really want this place to thrive--we're residents of Maple Lawn. We aren't sure where the hole is, but clearly the kitchen is not managed well. I won't even try to estimate how long we waited for dinner to arrive after ordering, but we've not experienced a wait of this magnitude before anywhere. Fortunately, it was a beautiful evening outside--we dined in their outdoor space, which is nicely laid out--so we were overly patient. Lisa, our server, voluntarily comped us with a round of drinks, so that was a nice touch. We enjoyed the food too: the grilled octopus appetizer with broccoli (supposed to be broccolini) and roasted peppers, the branzino with quinoa, broccoli (supposed to be broccolini) and walnuts, a Caesar salad topped with grilled salmon were all very good. My wife and I agreed to give Galliano another chance; we hope it's more successful overall. Regardless, they seem to do a solid carryout business, and since we like Galliano's food, we'll continue to use that service.
