We were seated and waited 15 minutes, many people walked passed us and no one acknowledged us. Another couple was seated and the server walked right up to them and wrote her name on the table and took their drink orders. We got up and left. They weren't busy at all, there were several tables that weren't bussed. There was more staff there than customers, so watching the staff just walk by us many times not acknowledging us but going right up to someone who was seated 15 minutes after us, that was enough for me to never go back again.

We really enjoyed ourselves at this place and the food is very good. I tried the Stuffed Mushrooms for the first time and they were delicious!

The spaghetti was a little bland, and asked for extra Marinara sauce to give it more flavor.

Daughter’s graduation dinner. Convenient location. Offered a free desert for leaving a review on Yelp but we didn’t take them up on the offer. Service was slow (I think they were under staffed at the time), but the manager was going around and assisting the servers.

Make your reservation through open table! No wait once you check in. Only a few minutes until they set up table.

My honey wanted scrimp scampi, grilled asparagus and grilled brussel sprouts. Romanos was only restaurant that had a open reservations. She ordered shrimp potorfino which minus the pasta was shrimp scampi on a bed of spinach. I ordered grilled pork chop with asparagus. I’m not into mash potatoes. Bottle of Pinot Grego on ice and it was all delicious. Service was outstanding.
Highly recommend.

This is the last time I will meet my parents at Macaroni Grill. There was nothing positive, other than a friendly person that sat us at our table. Been to this restaurant many times in the past, but never again. It's gone way down hill. From service, to food and price, won't be back.

We scheduled our date a couple hours out, and when we got there, it was as easy and checking in and letting them know we were there. All the staff was super friendly, and our waitress Jenteal was awesome - she checked in with us frequently, and had some great recommendations for the menu. Add in some nice conversation and our date night was a success! It's always great coming here.

No one approached me when I walked in the restaurant for 20 min. All workers looked at us and casually looked away. Waiter didn’t approach us for refreshments or anything once we were seated for 25 min. The
Workers acted like we weren’t there.

Overall an excellent experience considering the limitations of the current social distancing restrictions. The poor server was overworked, wearing many hats with the understaffing due to the pandemic, but she remained an absolute delight. Pleasant, cheerful, and did her best to keep the guests adequately cared for with only her covering *all* tables, the host desk, and bussing. Many menu items were unavailable, again a pandemic issue due to limited stock for limited customers, but still we enjoyed our overall experience and dining choices.

Outstanding food but our waitress sweet and polite girl was very forgetful, did not bring a salad I ordered, asked for more bread, she didn’t bring it.
Will come back soon, for sure.

I ordered the salmon with the sun dried pasta and the salmon was cooked on point and tasty. The pasta was good also. Portions were just right. The Caesar salad was tasty as it always is. I shared a $10 off $30 coupon with my friend.

Quality of food and increase in prices beyond friendly is unacceptable. Waitress was new and didn't even write her name on tablecloth-pasta bowl was supposed to have pasta in it but barely had any noodles to go with a large pile of sauce-did not want to complain and WAIT even longer to eat. Not coming back.

When we arrived, we waited for about 10 minutes and nobody asked if we needed help. I finally flagged down a waitress and she proceeds to tell me they help us because there are no tables available (there were about 6 empty tables in the tent) so I tell her I have a reservation and she says “well I wish someone would have told me there was a reservation because I just seated a party of 8”. Then she says just pick a table and I’ll be right with you. I looked around and saw no party of 8. We sat down and waited about another 15 minutes and nobody came to help us. So I flagged down another waitress who came over and took our drink and appetizer order. It took a really long time to get those and the waitress didn’t come back to take our food order until the appetizers were ready. There were only 4 tables with people sitting at them so not sure why everything was taking so long. When the waitress finally came back to take our order, she didn’t write anything down (I hate that!) and it took what felt like forever to get our dinner so we were full off appetizers before it even came so we didn’t get to enjoy it and had to eat it as left overs the next day. I had to ask twice for to go boxes. It was my birthday too! Just not a great experience and felt like a waste of over $100. Very sad and disappointed for a birthday dinner with my kids.
