Great food, from the bread service to the appetizers to the meal, cocktail and dessert. The butternut tortellacci is amazing!

Reserved at least two weeks in advance for our Thanksgiving meal. We were in a city where we had no family so we thought we would enjoy our Thanksgiving at a restaurant with Thanksgiving fare. We arrived on time at 5:00 pm and they were out of Thanksgiving meals. We had pasta for our meal. While the food was okay, it certainly wasn’t what we were expecting and were very disappointed.

I had made the reservations for my father and 3 other guests. By the time their reservation came up, the restaurant was out of the Thanksgiving feast and had to order off of the menu. All meals were good except for one that ordered steak. They said that it was very disappointing.

One member of our party of three ordered the special Thanksgiving dinner. It was not as good as their traditional entrees. The sides were not warm and the turkey was served with brown gravy. This restaurant should probably stick with what they do best :Italian cuisine.

Thanksgiving Menu. Excellent food. Had option to order from regular menu. Food servers were strained (short staffed) but the servers had a great attitude and did well.

Good food but a little overpriced for what you get. Service was good for the meal but the person who called to confirm the reservation was not friendly. Also, when I asked if I could add people she said no and then upon arrival at the restaurant, it was empty with plenty of open seating.

Obviously short staffed like everywhere else, but our server was working hard and had a great attitude along with everyone else we encountered.
Food was good, but one meal was a little cool.

Food and service was good. Chicken Parmesan was good but way more than I could eat. It would be a good dish to share.

The pasta on one of the dishes was under cooked, there was no parmesan cheese or coffee. Now I am aware of the shortages due to workers etc, but there is always the grocery store for cheese and coffee. It's a Italian restaurant with NO parmesan cheese

They could not find my reservation, which was not a big deal because there was almost no one there to dine. The food is not as good as it was before. The Penne Rustic needed more sauce. The bathroom seemed dirty. Overall a not so satisfying visit. Not sure if we will be going again.

It was record breaking temps outside, but inside it was the Arctic. We froze during our meal! Shivering isn’t my idea of a relaxing meal. Food was good and waitress was very attentive.

Loved the service. My dinner was great! I did the “make your own” option for a pasta meal. Hubby didn’t care too much for the chicken Marsala tho… not enough Marsala or mushrooms??
We had a 25% off coupon but they gave us a $10 off of $30 instead which made it us pay more than the 25% off….. not sure that’s right by not honoring the coupon, especially if they’re going to offer them, it was totally valid. My husband gets them often and never dealt with this before. Plus I think dinner salads aren’t included any longer…? Sad.
Ambiance is good. Food has always been great! I hope they stay in service 🙏🏼

Was seated right away, but it took about 20 minutes to get our drinks then another 45 minutes to get our food also we were ignored by wait staff most of the time. Don’t get much food for the price either.

The staff was very friendly and checked on us throughout our meal to ensure we received what we needed. The restaurant was quiet and so we enjoyed our meal and were able to carry on a good conversation. The food was delicious in taste and arrived at an appropriate temperature to allow for a excellent meal. Our dinner was on a Thursday evening, with few other guests, it was wonderful.

Waited 2 hours for our food. They o my had two cooks working. The server repeatedly apologized for the restaurant and told us that she would discount our order since we waited for 2 hours+ with a three year old. Never discounted anything, food was mediocre, we will not be going back.

We arrived 15 minutes before the reservation and weren't seated for 30 minutes. Our poor waitress was never able to give us any kind of service due to being overwhelmed with complaints from other customers. 60 minutes later our salads showed up. All the while other servers kept piling dishes next to our booth. Finally the manager came to speak with us. Told us that we would have food shortly. Fast forward to 9:00. Manager told us that we would finally have food in about ten minutes, which never arrived. Kids were tired, wife was furious and we all had enough of the runaround. Worst birthday dinner ever!

Food was mediocre. Salmon was very overcooked almost burnt on the outside and dry throughout. Kitchen was quite slow given that we arrived at 5:30 pm with only a handful of diners in the restaurant. Waitress service was just OK. It had been a couple of years since our last visit to this restaurant and I would say it has gone downhill a bit.

Took over an hour to get the meal that was bland. Portions were very small and prices were crazy high. No apologies or anything from staff or management for taking over an hour to get the meal served. Waste of money. Sad because pre-COVID it was a great restaurant.

Everything was fine upon arrival and seating. My sister and I placed our orders, ( steak and mash potatoes)we started to notice that people who arrived after we arrived were already eating. Then we noticed that there was only one cook behind the grill. After another 15-20 minutes of waiting , the Cesar salad I ordered finally came to the table. The chicken was burnt and the shrimp were under cooked. It took forever for our waiter to come back to the table, and when he finally did , I politely told old him that the salad was horrible. He apologized and stated that he will remove the salad from my bill. After another 15-20 minutes of waiting, the manager approached our table and told us that the steaks we ordered were already up but they weren’t cooked how we ordered them to be cooked. She offered to have them cooked again, but my sister and I were so displeased with the service we politely declined. The manager felt that it was unfair to charge us for “waiting “ on food, so she cancelled our bill out and apologized for the inconvenience

Macaroni Grill used to be my favorite place to be but has gone down hill due to covid effect. Very disappointed that couldn't offer tea or coffee.
