It was good
Waiter stopped at the table of 6 next to us at least 4 times and not once, came to our table unless we waved him down. Food was bland and not what Macaroni Grill once was.
Food was excellent. Service was friendly, however there was a problem in the kitchen that it took a very long time to get our food. The server didn't disclose this to us until our meals were served. He should have advised us there was a problem earlier, however never told us what the issue was. The manager never acknowledged us, so perhaps he didn't know there was an issue.
The service was excellent. They were very attentive. Food arrived quickly.
Had the Chicken Scaloppini and it was great! The service was also great. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.
Excellent friendly service. Food came up fast.
I've already written a review on Yelp. Took 25 minutes for someone to assist us and that was because we flagged down the hostess for water. Not one waiter walked by and even smiled at us or gave recognition to us, this was our first year wedding anniversary. A waitress ended up coming by and took our appetizers order and food, I asked for food to come about 15 min after so we could enjoy the calamari but of course they came same time. Another waiter came towards the end and he was great. Too bad we didn't get him at first, Colin I think his name was.
Great friendly service. Ample portions. Excellent Lobster bisque.
Foods great but it took an hr+ to receive it. server's didn't come around to much, I expected a faster response time since I have reserved. Must have been a bad day. Again great food
Food was delicious and service was excellent
The wait staff was friendly, professional, and the most attentive.
The food portions were very generous and tasty. Overall one of the most pleasant dining experiences in a long time especially after what we have all experienced in the world it was nice to feel welcomed.
It was over-priced for the quality of food. The dish I had was dry in quality and flavor. The dessert was not very good. Our server was not very great either. We got the impression she was a new, inexperienced server. The wine suggestions she made turned out to be wrong based on what we read in the menu vs. what she said.
Food was fresh and generous portions
Really great service! Appetizers came out super fast as well as our food. We loved out server’s wine recommendation and it was a great price for the bottle. We got the mamas trio and Italian chopped salad, a lot of food and tasted great. Will be coming back again!
We were seated very quickly. COVID restrictions were followed. The food was outstanding. The server was very attentive.
Food quality poor compared to the price being charged
We are repeat customers and as always, the food, service, etc. was excellent.
Looking forward to coming again soon.
Great to have Mac Grill open again. Service and food was excellent. Enjoy the all you can eat soup and salad add on, however went up from $2.50 to $3, but still a great deal. Lobster bisque is the best around! Also enjoy the Buffalo chicken parmesan but enjoyed the build your own pasta this evening. Wish they would bring the Mahi Mahi back as I hate Salmon.
Server Nasser was super rude. He was one of the worst servers ever.
Love This place!
Meeting old friends from out of town. Great service and accommodations. Food was delicious, however, I felt the portions were too small for the price. Salad should be included. But overall, great lunch.
Delightful Easter lunch! Server was so patient with elderly person with us and very attentive. Food was excellent - we will be back!
Waiter never greeted us. Took 20 minutes before he came over to take our order.
Service was terrible .
I asked for tea. They were out. I asked for coffee. They were out.
I had the truffle Mac and cheese it was like they slapped nacho cheese on it . Never got the truffle flavor. Never refilled our water.
We were there at 8:15 pm. Really wasn’t that busy.
We generally missed that glad your here my name is so
Waiters use to write their names on the table cloth.
After 11 years of going to the Escondido location I don’t think we will ever go back.
Don't hesitate to go to Romanos the food is same as earlier before.
It was great food and service, the staff was very nice and the restaurant was very mellow.
We had a reservation for 6:00 PM. We were at the desk at 5:58 PM. We were told that the staff was behind and they could not seat us for 30 minutes. We drove into Escondido and had a wonderful meal at DiCicco's Italian Restaurant. They had plenty of staff and we were treated wonderfully.
Had seating on the entryway patio instead of in the parking lot which was much nicer. Food was great
Everything was perfect for my (belated) Birthday dinner. It was a slow and pleasant night, dined outside with heat lamps, top-notch server, food, and LOVED the Merlot! Worth the half-hour drive, for the Macaroni Grill my boyfriend and I normally go to closed permanently.
This was great I loved that we could make a reservation- we made it at the last minute and they were still very helpful & hospitable. Food was great, friendly staff
Macaroni balls are fire
The kitchen was inundated with to go orders and unfortunately those took precedent over the people dining. Waited over an hour before deciding to leave, we have a five year old and never got our entrees, still charged us for the drinks and apps although for customer service, something should have been waived, don’t think we’ll be going back anytime soon.
very slow service. understaffed even though crowd was light. cold soup, not even warm. entree was wrong. companion was done when i got my entree. food quality very poor on my spaghetti and meatballs. cannoli had cellophane in filling. partial menu, sitting outside was not ideal. huge indoor venue could seat at 50 % capacity. tell newsom to go to hell. we were regulars years ago but now it seems quality has slipped. but i would go again, hoping this was a one time problem due to covid situation.
I made a reservation through Open Table for Christmas Dinner. Open Table even confirmed the reservation the day before. We arrived to find the restaurant closed to in-person dining. Thanks for ruining Christmas Dinner. I've used Open Table enough to know that the restaurant is fully informed of reservations made. So why did no one call me to tell me of the closure? I could have made other arrangements had I just been notified.
No coffee availability. No Thanksgiving Dinner as stated. But we were given the menue for the special Thanksgiving Dinner. If it wasn't for the waiter, Audele, We would of left.
We were seated outside after a long wait and we had a reservation. It was busy for outside dining and they had not completed putting up a larger tent. Once we were seated our server was attentive and the food was served hot.
The restaurant was busy considering Covid. There were additional parties checking in for seating immediately after us. This puts strain on the only one server working. Mid way, the manager starting helping and sometimes a kit hen staff would bring out the entrees. The lobster bisk is very tasty, however wasn't hot, just warm we had excellent service as the server knew us as I am a regular and he knows our preferences. The Buffalo chicken parmesan is excellent and cheesey... better than original.
Our service was very friendly. We were seated immediately, however they did get backed up about 30 minutes after we arrived due to limited seating from the Pandemic. They do need to put another server on as service was slower and not as attentive as usual, with most available tables taken and a large party split between two tables (Covid restriction) . The manager was out helping the one server that was waiting on tables and making mixed drinks, as they were the two previous week we ate there.
Food was fresh and great. We are regulars and will be back next month.
A nice quiet Saturday dinner
The new Buffalo Parmasan is delicious. I enjoy it more than the standard, so I hope they keep it on the menu. It was a large Chicken breast also. The canolli are also the best I have had. Not too sweet, made with a sweet cream filling and garnished with chocolate chips.
Service was slower than usual with only one server and one on take outs. They looked like they got slammed and didn't expect it due to Covid. The manager came out towards the end of the rush to help out seating patrons and getting drinks. Made getting check slower than usual.
