We were headed back home after a stay in Nashville. Great service and food. Social distancing was managed well and we had a lovely experience overall.

Everything was great! Our server was very attentive and entertaining. My only call out is that the prices have increased a bunch. Probably Covid fallout, but it will limit how many times will eat there.

It was much brighter than other Macaroni Grill’s I’ve been to in the past. Pretty generic ambiance.

We had to wait an extraordinary amount of time for an initial greeting and for water. I do not blame our server. But I believe it the fault of management for not staffing properly on a weekend.

Due to the tornado they were out of two things that wanted. One big negative was the hostess who was chewing gum and pulling it out with her fingers as we arrived and some during our meal. Our waitress was outstanding.

We had reservation but they seated us by bar. Waitress was nice but seemed frazzled at times. Gave our appetizer to wrong table. Ice tea refill had no ice so we asked for glass of ice and she forgot to bring so we asked for again. Food took a long while and my husband ordered pork chop and was good but in ordered the ricotta meatballs and spaghetti and it was terrible. Meatballs very dry and the Bolognese sauce tasted like chili. Usually a good restaurant but not this time. Not sure I would go back to this location.

The food was good, but the waiter did not know the menu and did not know simple Italian words like Milano. I am sure that it is just one not well-trained person and otherwise the restaurant is good.

My two children and I were on vacation in Nashville. We were staying at the Opryland Hotel. I used Open Table to make reservations at 7:45 pm for dinner. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived at 7:30; however, the hostess informed us that the servers were busy at the moment and asked that we return in 15 minutes. This was on NY day and only 5 servers were working. The restaurant was not full. I was looking at several empty tables; however, we were asked to come back in 15 minutes.

It was New year’s eve. They were not that busy but they seemed short handed. There were a lot of dirty tables waiting to be bussed. Our server was nice but it took a while to be waited on.
Food tasted good but soup was lukewarm. Our appetizer was forgotten so we canceled it after our entrees came.

Our server was rude from the second we were seated, and once our dinner came out, he completely disappeared. The kitchen was out of several things, including gluten free pasta, so our person with a gluten allergy was rudely told her only option was steak and potatoes. It took forever to get our food, and when it finally came out, numerous plates were cold.

good food-not great-service was good even with a very limited staff on a holiday. It was a little noisy but it is an Italian restaurant, its supposed to be. The value was ok may even be a little over priced for the amount of food but we got plenty.

Wow. I know they were busy (NYE) but at 6 they had run out of the ravioli apps. They Gabe me broken pieces of bread in the bruschetta—I mean fragments. Stuff came out cold. They were clearly under staffed Used to love stopping here after work when I lived closer. Not worth going out of my way. I wasn’t charged for some stuff, but that’s not fair to a server who has to deal w it. Very sad.

They were short staffed and packed which is understandable, but the hostess was rude. The service was decent, but our food was no good at all. Maybe they rushed cooking it due to them being busy. I would have rather waited longer on food than waste our money on food that was not enjoyable to eat.

Line was long, but because we had made the Open Table reservation, we were seated promptly. Ordered from the special fixed price menu. My grilled salmon and wife’s chicken scallopini were served hot and delicious. About half the tables were empty, but again that did not affect us. Nice (and over worked) server got a tip worthy of Christmas Day. Just don’t go without reservations!

Mediocre. We have been to this location multiple times, but it seems to have taken a turn (not in a good way). Service was slow even though the restaurant was not busy, they were out of pizza at 7:00, and the food tasted like a mediocre chain restaurant....not a slightly decent chain that it once used to be.

We had a great experience. Although, happy hour was going on in the bar area and we were there to have a few drinks with lunch. It would have been nice if we were offered the option to choose where we wanted to sit before being seated

Should have know thanksgiving dinner in an Italian restaurant. Service was very poor even though our waiter John did a good job. I watch at least 6-10 people leave the restaurant because of lack of service. The food, well the turkey was the only good thing on the plate, but not enough gravy the potatoes and stuffing wasn’t good at all and cold. No cranberry sauce, who does a thanksgiving dinner without cranberry sauce. The plating of the food was very amateurish, absolutely no respect for the people that would spend their time to eat in your establishment. Would I go back not in the least, would I recommend it to a friend, yes to stay away from.

Never have enough adequate wait staff. Waited 25 minutes for a glass of wine to be delivered. It took at least 20 minutes to place our order. I will say that the staff they do employ are very hardworking, but can't handle the volume. I really enjoy the food, but the service leaves a lot to be desired.

Went on Thanksgiving. Restaurant not excessively busy. Ordered an entree with salad and also lobster bisque. Everything was delivered at once. Waiter Didn't check in our drinks. Ordered dessert, after 20 minutes cancelled it. Asked for check and that took another 15 minutes. Not sure if waiter was new or just not good at his position. Good was excellent.
