    This is one of the nicest restaurants in Amarillo. A little hidden gem. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, and the service is always fantastic. Josh took great care of us. He even offered us a glass of wine even thought they discontinued the free house wine offer that we had. The food is always great, and the prices are affordable for a fine dining experience. This is my favorite date night restaurant, and we will be back many times.

    Our expierence was okay.. we ordered two of the most expensive steaks on the menu ( 12 Oz filet and the wagyu ribye) and unfortunately both were overcooked. We sent the steaks back and the manager came out and apologized. The FOH service was very friendly and accommodating although it shouldn't take almost 3 hours for two people to eat.

    Be sure your reservation is received. We made ours on Open Table and were very disappointed to be directed to the worst table by the front door traffic. Other tables were marked reserved. We did request the front room but there were plenty of 4 tops available. The hostess insisted or gave us the table opposite which we took. We love all the food here and the wait staff is fabulous. It was a sad way to start a special evening.

    e reserved our requested table and were seated quickly. Atmosphere is very romantic and reminds us of a small Italian village when we lived in Tuscany. Our waiter James provided us with excellent service. Our appetizers and main course were delicious. Portions were decent size for us to split. Presentation was good 👍. Prices our slightly above average. Parking is free in lot in front but limited. There is a small covered patio area outside when weather permits. Although we like the Italian style interior. Definitely 👍 recommend.

    Greatly enjoyed dinner with one complaint: the wine list in general is too expensive. We appreciate wine with our dinner but for all our experience, we cannot tell the difference between a $40 bottle from an $80 bottle and most of your bottles are much more than $80. That is to say that it would be nice to have more moderately priced choices.

    This is the first time at this restaurant and we were very pleased and enjoyed it very much. This was on a trip we took to Amarillo and this was a wonderful place from, the service we received and the food and the enjoyable atmosphere of feeling like you were in a Italian village eating. Everyone at this place was so friendly and kind. If we ever go back to Amarillo it will be our first place we go to eat. Highly recommended!

    Always enjoy dining there. This was in the middle of the day, lunch time. This is one of our favorite special places. Always has been. service was off the charts great,...everything was great except for the food. It was mediocre at best . Under cooked vegetables, not so fresh bread and the salmon was way overcooked on one side and under on the other. This was the Friday after Valentine's Day, perhaps the chef just had an off day. Pretty sure that's what it was,...as usually everything is great. We will continue to go to Mac Joe's. Not put off by one less than stellar experience. I highly recommend them for a great dining experience.

    I love this place. So do my kids. I’m not sure it’s really a great place to take you get kids, but my 13, 15 & 11 year old love it. The service is by far the best of the best. The servers are great extremely knowledgeable & it makes for an interesting dining experience. I’ve had some of the “finer” things on the menu before, and they’re all delicious, but last night ai had chicken spaghetti. It was absolutely amazing! 10/10 would def recommend.

    The waiter is very good and knowledgeable at his job. The management team was friendly. The food was excellent. The noise level was good. If they didn't have items to help absorb the sound it would have been bad. Thing is, most restaurants if busy, can be noisy. However, we were still able to talk to each other. This was my wife and I's third time to dine at Macaroni Joe's and have enjoyed it every time. Our son and his fiancé joined us this time and they enjoyed the experience. We highly recommend Macaroni Joe's.

    Always delicious! Their blackened bayou tortellini is excellent. Steak and fish are also very good but on the pricier end. The mob queso is always a crowd pleaser, but the fried green tomatoes are the best!
