The lamb shank was tender and delicious and our server was attentive and courteous and knowledgeable. The Macaroni Grill is always excellent.

Food was very much what you get in frozen food section. Eggs at brunch were gross and I’m pretty sure they microwave their bacon.

Great food and we've usually had great service but Rick was awful last Saturday night! He took away the oil that is usually left on the table, didn't even offer cracked black pepper, and didn't offer any water until we had to ask for some. Rick also screwed up one order and forgot the soup in another person's meal. Every time we needed something, Rick was nowhere to be found. After the meal, Rick then came in with the hard sell on the desserts. We ended up ordering two desserts and Rick brought one. We just gave up and then went home. We love the food and ambiance at Romano's but the service was unusually bad last Saturday night, hopefully, you can train up Rick to make him a bit better at his role.

Arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation, they seated us right away. Food came out on reasonable schedule. The food was delivered hot, with the minor exception of my fiancé grilled chicken being overly peppered it was a great meal.

The food was amazing!! Im speechless on the quality, taste, and amount. Pure food perfection! Kim, our waitress, amazing. I have no complaints. We were stuffed and took leftovers which were just as amazing reheated.

I highly recommend the lobster bisque, lobster ravioli and shrimp scampi. And definitely the cheesecake. Even the garden salad was great.

As soon as I reached for the door handle and it was sticky, I knew we were in trouble. We had to ask for everything and items we ordered were forgotten. The food was mediocre, at best. The only positive thing I have to say is, it’s a good restaurant for kids. The crayons and paper on the table kept our 3 year old entertained through the whole meal.

We have gone to this location on many occasions and this time was very disappointing. The food was below average and very bland. My husband ordered extra sauce to be baked in with his meal and instead it came out overcooked, dry and sauce on the side. The waitress was not attentive and we were over half way through our meal before she checked on us for us to tell her how terrible the food was. Not sure if we will return

It’s also nice to be able to make reservations online.

The cost of the food versus the service is not comparable! We had to ask 4 time for a side of ranch for our appetizer and by the time we received it the appetizer was cold . I ordered a salad and it was so small lol they had forgotten half of it . We had 4 kids in our party and they brought 2 of the four kids meal while the other two kids were hungry asking where theirs was !
The waitress was missing in action. We will not waste anymore money there !

Our waiter, Max, was efficient, friendly, and very helpful. We don’t go out to eat very often so when we do it is nice to have a good experience. I felt he always was mindful of his tables and we didn’t have to look for him when we needed something....he is a good waiter.

The radio of balsamic to olive oil in the bread dipping mixture was out of balance. Too much vinegar. Preferred ratio is typically 1 part vinegar with 3 parts olive oil. The noise levels were tolerable but,even though we were seated in the back portion of the dining room, they were greater than we would prefer when trying to engage in table conversation.

Requested a table upon reservation
Hostess insisted we take the booth while tables were clearly available. Waiter was helpful and timely. Our guests and us wanted to visit but several families with children sat beside us, even though we had requested a quiet table at time ou f reservation, and upon be seated. Oui!

I have eaten at this restaurant many times, most experiences being good ones. However, this was a complete failure. I made reservations for 4 on Easter Sunday primarily because of the excessive advertisement regarding the brunch menu that was being offered for the holiday weekend. Not wanting a huge buffet meal, this sounded like the perfect option. Unfortunately, when we arrived for our 12:30 reservation, it was absolute chaos. We were told there was "a problem in the kitchen, but complimentary drinks and appetizers were available at the bar." When we asked about the comps, we were told there were no longer any appetizers being offered, only Mimosas and Bloody Mary drinks. Since my family doesn't typically drink alcohol, this was of no interest to us. Looking at a restaurant full of empty tables, we asked when they could at least seat us, since more and more people were pouring in with no place for anyone to stand, much less sit down. We were told in no certain terms that NO ONE would be seated before 1:00 pm... no real explanation given. I could not understand why they didn't honor those with reservations with at least a table to wait, including my 88 yr. old mother. People that had been there earlier were leaving in total disgust, saying the wait was long and the food they did eat was awful. The whole situation was spiraling out of control. I called a local restaurant (Lucille's BBQ) who said they could take us right in. Since I couldn't even get close to the front desk to cancel our reservation, we just left. I received a text message from Romano's at approx. 1:25 pm saying they would be able to finally seat us... an hour after our original reservation time. Utter madness and total disappointment for our special holiday celebration. Not sure we'll be back.

We had reservations on Easter for a brunch that they advertised. We sat and waited for over 40 min without any food. As I noticed no one was being served food besides bread and drinks. I asked how much longer til food was ready. Our server said the cooks are behind but it won’t be too long. Then after sitting a total of an hour and 15min I told them we can’t wait any longer because family was coming to our house. The manager never came around apologizing. The entire restaurant was not being served food!! There were no smells of fresh food, no one eating, it was the oddest thing! We sat there hungry and never ate my kids were so patient. Ages 6,10&13!

The timing of order delivery was poor! Things that were ordered at the same time, drinks for example, arrived at vastly different times. The same was true for salads, and entrees. While the restaurant was crowded, that's not an excuse for poor management of table delivery timing, especially at the course level!
