Such a great experience! The server was attentive and helpful. The food was so good! I’m from Oregon so they closed them here and I was so excited to see them while on vacation. Still amazing bread ! Definitely recommend. Everyone working was nice and helpful as well

The bread was not good and dipping oil tasted just like paper and oil with no seasoning. Not enough red gravy on pasta. No pine nuts for pasta as you like it.

We went here for our anniversary dinner and it was awful. We have been to other Macaroni grills and always like them. I ordered the tortellini dinner and it was $20 for 6 pieces of tortellini and that didn’t include a salad with the meal. There was no meat with the pasta. That is ridiculously overpriced! We asked why it was so small and cost $20 and the waiter just awkwardly laughed. Then we ordered a slice of chocolate cake and it must have been next to something with onions in the fridge because it tasted like onions. It was just a bad experience and way overpriced. If you are going to charge $20 for a pasta dish then there should be more than 6 pieces.

The portions are very limited on the amount of meat in the dish appearing to be a cost saving measure. Will not be back again.

Reservation made for 8:30 and when we got there we were rudely told that we had to take the food to go and can’t be seated because they close at 9. Poor service and for a reservation to be done while traveling out of town to be told it can’t be accepted is illogical. Do better.

We waited for 45 minutes after our scheduled reservation time. The waitress did not seem to know what she was doing. we waited for a while for the food and also for our check at the end. We tried to order extra drinks and another salad that was supposed to be a limited but it never got it to us.

Nothing impressive. Food was ok, for the price it is a little overpriced. Service was not what I expected, maybe my server was a newbie, not very friendly. She forgot the oil for the bread; when we complained about one of our dish being too spicy, she di not offer us a change. We requested it and still charged us for it. I wouldn't come back.

Upon arrival we were asked to wait to the side while our table was prepared; “a few seconds”. After 15 minutes I asked how much longer it would be and was told the by the Host, that the manager instructed him to “hold the door” and it would be another 5 minutes. Indeed, after 5 minutes we were seated. Our server was energetic and mostly attentive. The food was standard fare for a chain Italian place.

When I arrived, there were only a few cars in the parking lot on a Friday evening. That should have been my first warning... Service was poor and not just from my server. Of the few people who were dining, you could notice that the lack of service was present throughout the restaurant. My pasta was not fully cooked, there was something floating in my drink, and our salad arrived after the main course was served. To top it off, the ceiling boards were falling down and resting on a beam. I would not return to this location.
