    My family and I use to go to Macaroni Grill in Cerritos often. We loved the food and customer service. However, over the last couple of years the food has declined. Today, we decided to give Macaroni Grill in Cerritos another try. Our waitress was very good. However, we were disappointed in the food. My family ordered a variety of choices from the menu. I ordered the Spaghetti with meat balls with meat sauce. The meat balls and meat sauce was very bland, it did not have much flavor. My daughter ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo. It was also very bland. She did not eat it. My son ordered the Grilled Salmon. He was also very plain tasting. He did not eat it. My other daughter ordered the Steak & Potatoes. The steak was burnt & dry, however the mash potatoes were really good. Sad to say, our family has decided to make reservations at other restaurants in the area with better tasting food.

    We made a reservation for Saturday night at 7:30. We showed up around 7:25 and the hostess at the front had a bad attitude, just seemed like she didn’t want to be there. She told us we were checked in and to wait a bit. So we stood there waiting, she then snarkily asked us to wait in the specific waiting room which had no air conditioning (it’s been extremely hot in Los Angeles). We waited for a little over 10 minutes, which at this point, what was the reasoning behind making a reservation in the first place? And we were only a party of 2 and the restaurant did not look busy at all. We were about to leave when the hostess called us, simply walked us to the table, and walked away without a word, very unwelcoming. Soon, we also realized that the air conditioning was not working in the dining area either. So after about 3 more minutes of debate, my boyfriend and I left and decided to go elsewhere. Very disappointing experience and I wish the staff would have been more welcoming.

    I've always wondered what's going on with Romano's. So many locations have closed over the years and yet some locations thrive. This location definitely had an off night. The food seemed luke warm and just off a bit. The dining room was about 20% full on a Friday night. I've loved this place for a long time so I hope this was just a fluke.

    We came there for my lil mans 5th birthday made reservations and were so looking forward to it but despite the GREAT SERVICE SHE WAS SO NICE despite the quiet crowd and the most best bread and salad the entrees were TRASH NASTY inedible and because we liked the waitress so much and her and my wife were talking about kids we just packed it to go and gave it to homeless if this continues the bad food and the cooks laughing I think I may not come here here anymore

    Prior to going to macaroni Grill that evening, I looked online and saw that they had a happy hour and so we waited to go to that happy hour at 4 o’clock. When we got there they said they did not have a happy hour on any food items or drinks. We used to go to the one at city of industry which we loved and we are sad that it is gone, and we would go for happy hour all the time. So we drove to the Cerritos thinking we would enjoy dinner and a happy hour with drinks etc. and there was nothing. They should have changed everything on the Internet so that people could see that they no longer had a happy hour available. The food was great and the gentleman that served us was great. We did complain a bit about not having that happy hour so he did give us a discount. But as far as going in the future if there is no happy hour offered that may be a an issue. Thank you

    We were seated pomptly gor our lunch reservation. The restaurant was almost empty at Noon. We went there because of gift cards we jad received. At first we had some trepidation due to many bad reviews. But we pleasantly surprised. Service was prompt. Food was tasty. We had Make Your Own Pasta. The fettuccini was done al dante. One dish was roasted chicken with pesto and the other was roasted chicken eith Italian sausage with olive oil and garlic. Everything was fresh. We added unlimited soupe and salad. The lobster bisque was very tasty. We will come again

    On a Monday night the restaurant was fairly empty so it was quiet.. Our server was very diligent and friendly. We ordered the Monday Special Which was Chicken Scaloppine. The dish was not very hot and the chicken was over cooked and dry. We also had the Calamari Fritti which was very flavor full but it was not drained well so the bottom pieces sat in oil.

    Not very crowded for a Saturday night, so service was pretty good. However, my food arrived barely warm. Server said she would have them remake it, but all the kitchen did was heat it in the microwave to boiling. Boiling shrimp alfredo makes the pasta gummy and the shrimp like rubber. It was not enjoyable and we will not be back. Also didn't appreciate the surprise of a $2.00 inflation fee!!!

    The restaurant seemed dirty. When I walked in I noticed the entry rug was filthy. The bathroom was out of hand towels and toilet paper. The bar was close due to lack of help. I was extremely disappointed that they did not offer gluten free pasta in this day and age. I hope this restaurant does not close but it got the feeling that it might.

    Beautiful restaurant great service and great ambiance whatever the food was not great. I ordered the seafood ravioli which was mediocre, the shrimp tasted like store-bought frozen shrimp. I also ordered the chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream I guess I was expecting something different because the cake again tasted like a store-bought cake I could get myself at ralphs.

    I love going here normally. But this visit fell short of what I expected. food came out at different times all of it and we had four in our party. Mine was the last one to come out 15 minutes later and the excuse given was someone took mine. No offer to adjust or give a dessert. The waitress seemed very annoyed, just a rollover of the table across who asked alot of questions, we had to ask for water everytime because she was so distracted. Why I don't know, it was Easter Evening about 5:30 not busy at all. so needless to say i wasn't happy with my visit at all.

    The food was very good, the service from our server was poor made up for by the single server who was trying to help all of the tables. We had finished our appetizers before we even got bread, and drinks (water) took over 10 mins. We would go again, but maybe eat a snack first.
