The restaurant was very cold but they did turn the temp up a little bit when we asked about it. My wife also went and got a blanket out of the car. It took quite a while to get our drinks and a full hour before we got our food. When we did get our food, it was warm but not hot. We got to-go boxes, took our food home with us and had it the next day. This is probably the worst experience we’ve ever had at a restaurant, and that is saying a lot. I try to remain positive and understanding with the whole Covid situation, but that was really inexcusable. In her defense, the manager did comp our meal and apologize profusely. I really hope they get their act together because we’ve always liked this place.

My food wasn't delivered with my wife's. But glad to see that the restaurant is open and waiters and cooks are working! We can adjust to the changes that are occurring and I'm sure the restaurant will as well.

We would eat here more often if it was closer to home. The food has always been delicious. Our service is usually outstanding, however, on our last visit, our waiter seemed to forget we were at his table. He was friendly and nice, it's just he was not that attentive to us. But 95 percent of the time we have a great server. The dishes are large enough to split if you want to.

Not a good experience. Asparagus was burned, mashed potatoes were ice cold, and Mac and Cheese tasted like something out of a box dinner. Also, Caesar salads were swimming in dressing. It wasn’t a good night for them or for us.

First time we’ve been there and they were super short staffed but the two women which one was the host and the other was the cook, came out and helped everyone the best way they could. The food was ok, but I would go back just because of the customer service. Thank you again ladies!

My girlfriend got sick later un the evening, but we believe it to have been overindulgence or a previously unknown food sensitivity rather than bad food. Everything tasted great.

Very few people in the restaurant due to CIV VID-19 restrictions but the service was very slow and the meals came to the table lukewarm. I would of thought that with the light workload everything would of fast and hot.

We really enjoy cooking here. We were seated promptly, and had excellent service the entire evening. The waitperson was excellent. We ordered several appetizers (brussel sprouts and calamari), both of which were outstanding! We both ordered the salmon, and I'd was amazing. Bring from the Pacific Northwest, we often have salmon, and this is some of the best I have ever had. Truly excellent! I am glad the restaurant is back to offering dining room service, and whenever I am in town, I make a point to go to the Macaroni Grill!

4 of us enjoyed a cold evening dinner. Lobster Bisque a new regular on the menu was very good. 2 shared parmesean chicken which was a long time staple for us. 2 more had Fettuccini Alfredo w grilled chicken is another favorite. Chocolate sundaes to cap the night.

Made a reservation on Valentine’s Day a week in advance. Showed up and had to wait an hour to be seated. Then was told that they were out of the Valentine’s Day dinner special. Asked to speak to the manager twice. They never showed. Server apologized and said nothing he could do. Crazy...

Our 6:30p reservation was seated until 7:30p and at 9p we left when our server told us there was “no timeframe for our food to be ready”. We were at this restaurant for 2 and a half hours before leaving hungry and settling for Burger King drive thru.

I am angry and feel that this establishment should not be under the open table app system.

I’ve already left a review on Google & the Grill’s website so the short story is that our reservation was not honored so we had to leave, unable to get another reservation on the last Valentine’s Day before we become parents... it was a big night for us, ruined by unprofessionalism & no attempt to make it right by management.

Everything tasted wonderful....compliments to the chefs.

My wife ordered a roasted brussel sprout side dish that should have been $3.50 but we were charged $10.00 because they had brought the appetizer size instead and we didn't know the difference. Other than that, it was great.

Entrees came out before appetizers and not at the same time. Dessert was frozen still and soup was cold. Cost $200 for 2 adults and 4 children with one shared appetizer, 5 desserts, water for drinks and two people eating soup as their entree. The manager was aware, but did not offer to comp anything with all the mixups and timing, she simply apologized and refilled our waters.

Made reservations for Christmas dinner but they ran out of Christmas dinner before we got here
Edit 1: and beer
Edit 2: and meatballs
Edit 3: we’ve been waiting for our food for almost an hour.
Edit 4: finally got the food but the chicken is tough as a shoe.
Edit 5: the lasagna is not good either.

We were disappointed having made our reservations for the Italian Christmas Dinner to find out that someone had not planned well and they were out of the dinner and just had regular offerings!

We were so grateful to find Macaroni Grill open on Christmas since we were visiting Colorado Springs for the holidays. We were so glad we had made reservations on Open Table as the crowds were surprisingly large at 4:30 pm. The staff was very busy and at times seemed a bit overwhelmed but their attitudes were upbeat and they strived to serve all the customers even though they occasionally forgot things. We were pleased with our experience and the bill was reasonable, which allowed us to tip our server well for Christmas!

Never again on a holiday… They overbooked and understaffed for this event. They took reservations however made the event chaotic with walkins… Could have been planned better.

It took over an hour to get our orders and two of the entrees were cold when served. Our waiter was very apologetic and sent the manger to talk to us. The manger did end up comping our meal. The kitchen staff was apparently all new and they couldn’t keep up with the orders.

Good space for a larger party (we had 7 adults plus a 1-yr old/high chair). Food came out relatively quickly and was good quality and portions for the prices. Good for families too.

Went for Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey was cold and dry. The stuffing was runny. We waited thirty minutes for the dessert before asking them to box it up to go.
