    What can I say, in a creature of habit. I had my go to mushroom ravioli which was delicious. I've decided, I will try something different on my next visit. For appetizer, I did try the Brussels sprouts and it was actually very good. I didn't think to order it before but liked it a lot and would recommend it. Loved the crisps and sauce have it a nice flavor. If you haven't already tried it or were looking for something new to try, recommend the blood orange cosmo. To die for!!!

    We are regulars at this restaurant. They were very busy. The server was below our expectations and probably the worst service we ever experienced. Maybe it was her first day or she never did this job. She forgot our drink orders, didn’t write anything down and was inattentive to refills. She had a long pony tail that swished into one of our guests and almost hit her in the face. We were a bit mortified when our invited guests said to me “Did you se that?” The food was excellent as we had hoped but waiting for alcohol refills was a disappointment. If you see a drink half empty, it’s a cue to ask the patron, “would you want me to put in another order for you?” Empty dishes on a crowded table were left, until we asked them to be cleared to make room for the main entrees. Small things that IMHO, are common sense for a busy restaurant that can easily make a dining experience more fluid and pleasurable. We are normally generous with out tips and our 4 guests were urging us to leave no tip at all. We did tip the customary 15% but really surprised at the servers lack of attentiveness. We expected more from the Brand we think is reliable and the service reflective of its good food and price point.

    Food and service were good but the restaurant was uncomfortably hot. We also heard others talking about how hot it was, saw people pulling at their clothes and fanning themselves. When exiting, we noticed a fan at the check in area so they know it’s hot.

    food tasted like it was prepackaged and then just heated up. the restaurant interior is not anything special. - felt like I was eating at a Denny's. Way overpriced - pasta at $32 - are you kidding me. I would pay less at an authentic Italian Bistro in NYC. Like most restaurant chains post pandemic - trying to take advantage of people wanting to eat out - overpriced, poor service, tasteless food! no reason to ever go back to this place.

    the food is great, they are always adding back new and old dishes. You must go there to sit down and have a quiet meal and just enjoy yourselves. the service is very friendly and helpful, should you require help with what to choose. Celebrate your birthday or special occasion. Always space for you! Go try and you'll see what I mean. This is a GREAT place to eat. I've always had a GREAT experience.

    Made a reservation for the restaurant and when we arrived at the reservation time was told we would have to wait because there was a wait line. Asked why we had to wait when we had a reservation and was told that the wait line took priority. We make a reservation if it is not honored when a customer arrives. When we received our food, it was bland and not very hot. The only good experience was the waitress that took our order. She was very friendly and apologized for the food.

    2 of us had lunch in the bar at noontime. We ordered a bottle of house wine. Jill the bartender brought us a loaf of rosemary bread with basalmic / olive oil in a dish to dip the delicious fresh bread in and a carafe of water while we decided what to order for lunch. We ordered the penne rustica (roasted chicken was tender, shrimps were succulent, prosciutto delicious, rosemary cream and Parmesan was perfect and the penne pasta was the best) and the ricotta meatballs & spaghetti (also very tasty and enjoyable). Both pasta dishes were delicious. Service by Jill was excellent. She took care of all the occupied tables AND the people at the bar. Amazing how fast and efficient she was. The young man that delivered our meals was very pleasant. For my birthday desert I was served the key lime wave. . Omg. Scrumptious, Perfect portion (I did share a bit). Looking forward to dining in the bar again and hopefully Jill will serve us. Very enjoyable. Thank you.

    Really enjoy going to Macaroni Grill. They seated us on the bar side and the A/C was out. We asked to move to the other side where the A/C was working. They accommodated us but couldn’t understand why they would seat people in an area with no A/C. Other than that we had a great meal.

    We haven’t eaten at Romano’s for some time and now we remember why. Although the food was “OK” the remaining experience was lackluster. Our server was very nice, but she couldn’t be attentive given the number of tables she had to take care of. We ordered a glass of wine which should have come out relatively quickly, but took almost 15 minutes. Our server apologized for the delay as she did for the delay in receiving our entrees. We might try this restaurant again, but we won’t drive there just for a meal.

    This was our first time dining at the Macaroni Grill Ala Moana since the pandemic (2020). We could always count on the Macaroni Grill for consistency, especially in their menu with regards to quality and taste. The food quality and taste on this visit was just "okay." It seemed to be missing that quality and flavor we remembered. Our server was very friendly, which somewhat compensated for the average taste of the food. Although, we had to ask the dining staff more than once for utensils and napkins, which were provided after we received our first appetizer item. Overall experience with food and service was just at par.
