A great way to spend Thanksgiving. My only complaint was the the waiting.. Made reservations for 3 and I believe we were seated at about 3:15. Also, I had to remind the front desk that I had a reservation. They were solely looking at names that they were writing down. Then as I was eating I got an email from OpenTable saying that the restaurant had said I was a no-show so I had to get up and fix that as well. Otherwise, always a great place. Amy and Joe are great and our favorites!

It was ok, my Lasagna was over cooked with the noodles being tough. Nice atmosphere but the food was nothing special.

We love Macaroni Grill! Our local Macaroni Grill in Delaware closed a while back, so happy to find this one while on the way to the Denver airport :)

I would recommend but it would be a generic referral. If you are looking for Applebee’s type dining.......this is your place. Wasn’t amazing.

We were disappointed in our visit to Macaroni Grill for Mother's Day. Our server gave fair service. He kept forgetting things such as refilling our drinks and bringing side items that we requested. We had to keep reminding him of our requests. We were disappointed in our entrees as well. They did not have very good flavor. My brother ordered the lamb shank and only had minimal amounts of meat on it. My wife ordered the pizza and it was bland. I ordered the lemon chicken and the meat was tough and hard to get off the bone. My mom did enjoy the lobster bisque. We have been to Macaroni Grill in the past and have enjoyed our time there. In past visits, we have had a Manager come and check on the service, food, etc. but no Manager came to see us on this Mother's day visit. Unfortunately, this visit has us not wanting to return at all.

We went on Valentine’s Day, keep in mind. I ordered a porterhouse steak that came out and was pretty tough. They immediately agreed to replace it and were very accommodating… However they ran out of porterhouse. They offered to give me another steak dish but they ran out of that steak too. They then comped me a chicken parm. The thing I would like to emphasize was how gracious and truly delightful our server and the manager were through the whole circumstance. I recommend this location highly.

It was Valentine’s Day so I expected it to be really busy which it was and service, food And wait staff we’re really awesome definitely didn’t disappoint. The only issue that I could say was it was a little loud while trying to have an intimate dinner.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at at Romano's Macaroni Grill on Thursday night. We enjoyed their Valentine's special and the waiters and other wait staff were very nice. The manager let us try a sample of a new wine he liked and really made us feel special. We both recommend Macaroni's Grill to our friends!

Very good. It was super bowl night so probably quieter than usual. Food very good and good price. Service great as well. Eggplant Parmesan may have been heavier breaded than we remembered but still very good. Chicken marsala wonderful. I almost swapped the pasta side for a different side but was very glad I didn't. It was very good with the mushrooms mixed with it.

Food was spotty. The main entree was bland (mushroom ravioli) and the salad (bib and blu) was drowned in dressing. Prices have gone up but quality has gone down from what I remember. Your better off at Olive Garden or biaggis.

With our reservation made ahead of time we were seated right away on a very busy Christmas evening but it took some time for our server to arrive. The first bowl of soup (lobster Bisque) was very cold so I asked for a new bowl and the second one was hot and just ok with very few chunks of lobster or crab meat.
it took a very long time to get our entries but they were very good.
then again it took a very long time for or server to come back and check on us.
If the service had been better after we were seated I would have given 5 stars!!

It took 30 minutes after we received our salad to receive our main course. It took an additional 25 minutes to receive our dessert, that we just took it home.

For Christmas dinner they handled the crowd well. Our server was very busy but kept her cool and we never felt neglected. Good job on a busy holiday and we appreciated having this option.

We were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant very busy on Christmas day yet very organized and service was excellent. Food was timed well and very good tasting. We will remember to make this a Christmas day dining spot again!

The service was well-timed and timely. We had lasagne bolognese and the grilled pork chop. The lasagne could have had more sausage. My friend absolutely loved the pork chop and pea pod risotto.

My husband took me on a Birthday dinner and I loved the chocolate cake! Not only that, one of the servers came and sang happy birthday in Italian and in an opera voice which was so beautiful! Very talented!

Never again! This place is completely disorganized, understaffed and has terrible seating. We had a reservation and after waiting 25 minutes, we were placed next to the restroom at a table jutting out into the aisle that people used to go to the restroom. So we kept getting knocked into. We switched to a table in the corner and noticed the floor was littered with food and debris. After an excruciating wait we were served semi-warm food that was mediocre. On top of that they didn’t bring any extra drinks we ordered after we waited 30 minutes for food- they also over charged us.
