Excellent service. Young lady greeted us and also waited our table. Only problem I had is that the food wasn’t hot, just warm when served

Great evening. Haven't been out that much this year, so this was a real treat. Food was excellent. Generous portions. Wonderful service. Restaurant clean, we were socially distanced.

I know there are COVID restrictions but they took half the tables away rather than just mark them "Don't sit here" so it looked like a warehouse. Only 3 tables were being used for 5:00 reservations. Wife had the seafood ravioli, two of them were fishy tasting, first time ever. I had the chicken marsala. Sauce was strange and the pasta had nothing on it, in other words, tasteless. We will try something else next time since this place is one of our favorites. We will probably wait until the pandemic is over.

First time our family has dined in since COVID-19 restrictions, and we felt that RMG was observing all the necessary precautions. Our waitress was very attentive, though we thought the kitchen was a little slow in getting the food to our table of four in view of the fact that the restaurant was not busy when we placed our orders. Nevertheless, the food was delicious which is the most important thing, and my sister's dessert was "on the house" because we were celebrating her birthday. Nice touch!

Covid changes from the normal routine understandable. Server seemed frazzled. Took over an hour to get our food and when we came in there were only 2 other couples dining. Salmon dinner was very tasty, but $21 for a 4oz (maybe) filet and a cup of pasta isn't a dinner. Looked more like an appetizer. We had a small spill on the floor and told our server about it. No clean up was done. we found a wet floor sign by the restroom and placed by the spill. Server continued to walk around it for the next 45 min.s until we left. It might still be there. Worst dining experience I have ever had here.

Great food. Much quieter with restricted seating. Waitress forgot to take off coupon but fixed it and never brought the butter we asked for but she was very friendly and is risking her health to work so she still got a good tip.

Got together with another couple for dinner and chose Macaroni Grill because of the many food options we all enjoy. Our server was pleasant and accommodating and the food was prepared very well, which made our dining experience very nice. We hope that others venture out to eat during these difficult COVID-19 times. It appears Macaroni Grill goes the extra mile to ensure a safe place to visit.

The Thursday dinner special of two entrees, two drinks, and a shared dessert is a real value. Appetizers are also marked down and some decent wines are available for $20. It wasn't very busy when we arrived but we still waited too long for cocktails (which were well made). Then our entrees came while we were still finishing an appetizer and our drinks. Other than that it was a very good experience.

Everything was great at Macaroni Grill. Very quick service, almost too speedy. It was busy and I know they like a quick turnover, but it was minutes between salad and dinner and bill came while we were still eating. Overall it was good!

I understand that going out to eat for Valentine’s Day is a very demanding day in the restaurant world but 90 dollars for a terrible meal was just robbery and I will not be back again. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants but definitely has fallen off.

Arrived 4 minutes before our reservation and the guy told us they’re 15 mins behind on reservations but also said “I’ve been telling people 30mins” ... we weren’t upset about waiting 15 mins but it turned out to be close to 30. After that the wait time for food was average, the waiter forgot my girlfriends wine and lemons in our water. Another thing that wasn’t a big deal but adds up. We got the mushrooms for an appetizer, they were average. I got the chicken Alfredo, it simply was not good, average at best. My girlfriend got chicken parm, it was pretty good. Chocolate cake was average as well. After dinner the waiter came with our receipt and the wine that we never received was on it, I explained to her that we never got it and she said “ok I’ll take care of that” no I’m sorry or anything. She did come back and take 25% off our bill which was nice. Overall and below average date night.

Very disappointing experience. Had reservations and when arrived still had to wait 25-30 minutes to be seated. Others also had reservations and had to wait too. Service was just ok. Long wait for entree to arrive (1 hr after we were seated). Not sure I'd go back.

Always enjoy Macaroni Grill. Our waitress was attentive. Our only disappointment was our wait for dinner. Drinks and salad came timely then we waited 45 minutes for our entrees. We were given a complimentary dessert so that was nice. Will go back.

I think they were just having an off night but it was pretty bad. Our waiter was very polite but would disappear for long periods. Another server kept bringing the wrong food but we were told she was new. When the entrees did finally come they undercooked one and overcooked the other. The waiter did reduce the bill to compensate which was nice of him but it still was nowhere near as good as past visits. I'm hoping it was just a one-time deal and not a trend.

It is loud, not energetic. The server was very attentive and warned us that the kitchen was backed up so the food would take longer than expected. I was glad for the warning but my daughter was on her lunch break and was late because of the slow kitchen.

Service was very slow. Seated by the bathroom when many tables were open. My order was given to another table so I had to wait another 15 minutes while the rest of my party ate. When the manager came over, he apologized but didn't offer a discount or a free dessert as is the norm when mistakes are made.

Good food, but not any options for vegans. Limited options for vegetarians. Service is very hit or miss. You could tell on Christmas that the staff didn't want to be there.

Food was good. However, I believe my food was re-made, because I asked for the non-spicy sauce. The seafood was spicy, but the sauce it was in wasn't. And, my seafood was burnt. Otherwise, everything else was wonderful.

2 of the 4 dishes were very salty a 3rd dish was cold in the center. I expected my lamb special to be tender and it was quiet tough and the garlic in the dish was very bitter.
