Great food! Amazing service by Whitney! It was a memorable birthday celebration! Felt very safe with the Covid 19 policies and protocol in place. Will be making reservations soon for another night out! Ask for Whitney!

Server would take a long time to come back and check on us, she was very polite but it took her almost 10 minutes to come greet us in the first place. When we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, she told us the dessert would be on the house, but then ended up charging us for it.

Food was not seasoned well. Kids got chicken Caesar salads and the chicken was unseasoned and didn't even have grill marks on it. My penne rustica was dried out and flavorless as well. Chicken marsala was decent and my daughter's steak and mashed potatoes was enjoyed. The restaurant was empty so the kitchen staff was by no means in the weeds so there was no good reason for the lack of good execution

We were celebrating our anniversary and our waiter, Shelby, made it special. It was a wonderful celebration ... the food was so delicious and just as good if not better than it has always been. Also, the staff made every effort to keep customers safe. They wore masks and practiced safe distancing by limiting the amount of customers, so it is important to make reservations. We will be returning soon.

We have been going to the Red Bug Lake road Romano’s for about five years now. The food is always delicious, the service impeccable, and the price point is appropriate for what you receive. We highly recommend this Romano’s for any occasion!

We have been visiting the Red Bug Lake Road Romano’s for quite some time now. The food selection, the quality of flavor and texture of the food, and the service are all impeccable. Valentines Day was extremely busy for them as they were completely booked on their tables, and their take out was just as busy! We had a wonderful time!

Busy evening. Apps took 30 min, dinner took almost an hour and the food was cold. Refills we had to wait for. Very disappointing after we drove from Lake Mary. Probably won’t return.

This wasn't our first choice for dinner, and probably won't be our first choice any time soon. There was about an hour wait at Carrabba's on a Friday night and virtually no wait here. That pretty much tells the tale.

We ordered the crispy brussel sprouts side and asked to bring that out as an appetizer. These were excellent! Charred and crispy with a nice balsamic drizzle. Not too greasy. They were gone pretty quick.

The side salad was extra with the meal and was pretty small. The waitress let me know the one dressing I ordered had honey in it as I was ordering vegan style. That was nice.

The kids pizza was a decent size and he enjoyed it. The Truffle Mac N Cheese ($15) was also good. I didn't try it personally, but everyone that tried it liked it. The Mushroom Ravioli ($17) was excellent as well. And the create your own pasta ($15) was also pretty good. It is what you make it and I chose the ingredients well (Penne, Arrabiata, Olives, Roasted Red Peppers, Roasted Garlic). The manager was able to help me with which sauces were vegan. They did not have any whole wheat pasta options available, but they did have gluten free options.

After we ordered, it was radio silence with anyone stopping by. Drinks were empty and we wanted more bread to dip in the sauces. We were all pretty much done by the time the waitress came back. By that time it was too late.

Also, every single person ate all of their food. That sucks for me as I usually bat cleanup and finish some of their stuff. I was still pretty hungry after my meal, which I would say is pretty bad for an Italian restaurant. I think they can adjust their portion sizes a bit. Pasta is cheap. And for those prices, you don't get anything with it except the bread.

Reviewed on Yelp, they contacted me and told me to fill out something on their website. I did, never heard back.

We come back to the Oviedo Macaroni Grill time and time again. We truly enjoy Rick's personalized service. He is energetic, friendly, and a great server overall. He has great things to say about new items on the menu, and is very attentive!!!

We had reservations on Christmas evening, so that has to be taken into account. The place was a madhouse at 6:30, with so much chaos going on at the take out area that it made for an unpleasant half hour wait. But once we were seated, everything was fine. The food and the service were excellent.

My create your own pasta was missing ingredients and when it came back the sausage was lukewarm and dry and the fresh mozzarella was ice cold. They just threw it on top and didn’t make fresh.

For the first time - ever - my husband and I were by ourselves on Thanksgiving. We decided to make a reservation at Macaroni Grill for Thanksgiving. We eat there during the year, why not on this day? Best decision we ever made. The food was delicious, as always, and the wait staff was so pleasant. We still ended up with leftovers, as the portions were plenty. If we have no children/family in town next year, we will definitely do this again.

My bestie and I had our first "date" here a few years ago. We came by the other night because we hadn't seen each other in over a month. Mac Grill always has great food and service. I love the comfy vibes that you get when you're there. Rick is always fantastic and very quick and helpful. Also the spaghetti that I ordered was ON POINT. I brought some leftovers home to my husband and he also said the spaghetti was fire. Great experience!

The overall experience was good, the pizza I had for my dinner was oily and the bottom was not cooked completely.
The oil was underneath the pizza and the cheese was just melted.

I did not complain, I didn’t want to delay out dinner and have out guest go through wiring either.

I’m a fan of the Red Bug Lake restaurant.

Please read and adjust.
