Went there for my birthday and the only one that acknowledged that was the hostess, the waitress did not listen, we ordered an appetizer and never got it, and the pasta alfredo i got did not taste up to par for that kind of restaurant, i ordered a dessert figuring they would come sing happy Birthday and i would get a free dessert and that did not happen, all in all not a great experience for being out of town and giving them a try will never go back.
During this Covid pandemic ... I felt safe and comfortable eating indoors .... lots of good choices and dinner was served in a timely fashion.
Food was served cool
Our server was excellent. She was attentive and addressed the issues with our food as best she could. The stuffed mushrooms were very small, barely filled and burned to black. The Lobster Bisque was cold and had no taste at all. Very disappointing.
Good service, husband loved his chicken portofino. I wanted the Bibb & Bleu, but told no butter lettuce- 😞
got Caesar instead. Ok but but not great.
We had a reservation for 6:30 and they couldn’t seat us until 7pm. But other than that the food was very good and the service was good.
Wonderful romantic evening for us. A special “Thank You” to Paige.
Unfortunately this was supposed to be a date night but they put two of us at a large table right in the middle of the restaurant. They did switch us halfway through which was nice. This used to be one of our favorite places but the food was horrible. We only ate a couple of bites it was so bad. And at almost $100 definitely not worth it. Unfortunately we probably will never go back. Not a very good Valentine’s date place.
The staff was friendly, the food was excellent and served in perfecting timing by our professional server. Highly recommend!
Little pricey, the volumevof calamari served in the appetiser dish for the price was way too small, salad was great, server was excellent
I made the reservation for my daughter and her husband for her birthday. They had a blast and truly enjoyed Macaroni Grill. My daughter thanked me over and over again for the dinner, service, food and atmosphere was awesome!!!!
Love taking my elderly Uncle here. It’s our favorite place.
Perfect medium steak!
Our waitress really spoiled the mood. We were ready to leave and she never left the table which made it hard to eat since she wanted us to constantly have our mask on. 0/0 recommended.
Good COVID practices
Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Excellent place to dine.
Very disappointed in the quality of the food. I know we live in trying times and I hate to do lousy reviews if restaurants, but for what we received food wise leaves a lot to be desired. Hopefully the manager reads this and ensures he has adequate kitchen staff to be sure the food is good.
Such a great place!! Awesome food.
Food was awesome
Would go again
Manager took care of a problem that happened
Wonderful staff! Amazing food! Great atmosphere!
We will definitely come again and recommend!
I came in Friday night and ordered the Milano. It was terrible! Way too much rosemary seasoning. My waitress, Meredith, insisted that she would get me something else. She recommended a dish and it was very good. I would like to commend her as a waitress. She was amazing, friendly, helpful, and a great asset to the brand of Macaroni Grill.
Several interesting choices.
We enjoyed a plate of caprese salad & breads with toppings.
Salmon dinner was well presented & cooked perfectly.
Lasagna was very heart with great flavors.
It was opened, that made it special.
We had a great meal. Waiter was busy with other tables so it took some time but it was fine
My daughter and I had reservations and were promptly seated. However, we were seated in a small booth for two in an area of the restaurant that seemed destined for spillover. The mood lighting that was prevalent throughout the rest of the restaurant was accompanied by very bright lighting and an empty space in the restaurant that looked like they had removed tables. The ambiance in that area was not at all like the rest of the restaurant. Also, the two person booth did not have enough table space for all of the dishes we had, with salad plates and bread plates and the entree. It was awkward. We each ordered an entree (with a $2.50 upgrade for salad) and one 8 ounce glass of wine. Our bill came to $75.00. I take responsibility for not paying attention to the price of the wine - I had only looked at the price for the 5 ounce glasses. My daughter's glass of wine cost $16.99 and mine cost $14.99. This seems excessive and certainly added to our bill. Would I return to the Macaroni Grille? No. I cannot recommend it. The food was fine but the cost of the dinner was not appropriate for what we had.
Food was excellent. Waiter was wonderful. Not rushed and very personable. He made the bad beginning save the evening. The bad part was the wait to be seated. We had a reservation but still had to wait close to 30 minutes to be seated. This was unacceptable. We made a reservation so that we would be able to be seated. We felt like we were not important at all. The waiting area was full, noisy, and just a bunch of benches. The bar area would have been much more enjoyable and pleasant. That being said, the Valentine menu was so wonderful and a good bargain. In my opinion, too many people were given reservations at a specific time. We would have gladly come earlier or later if we had been advised that our time slot choice was full.
Great food and great atmosphere. Very relaxing. We can’t wait to go back.
Food service was slow cooks behind and was delivered wrong. Once corrected it was very good. It was little disappointing that no management asked how everything was.
Lunch for a family members birthday. He loves Macaroni Grill
New Years dinner with my honey. Food and ambiance excellent.
Amazing food, perfect atmosphere for any occasion, prompt service!
Overall it was a very pleasurable evening, great food and great waiter. My chicken franchese was great but a little greasy, not terrible tough. The same for my mom's mushroom ravioli. The only reason I didn't give service higher was our poor waiter was worked to death. He was full speed with too many tables in my opinion. he was friendly and as efficient as could be considering his situation. It was Christmas Eve and I think they were short staffed.
Good food great service!
No fault to the waitress that served us and we still gave her a good tip but the service was poor. A very large party showed up and our waitress was assigned to that group which basically left us without service. We waited far too long to receive our order and we never received our coffees or desert because the restaurant was not properly prepared. Very disappointing. This was meant to be our anniversary gift.
Great meal and great service! We are going back today with guests from Boston! One thing....no cranberry sauce....but we did have a fabulous desert of NY Style Cheese Cake...so we forgot about the cranberry sauce very fast!
All great just wanted cranberries sauce with the turkey
We arrived early and were accommodated quickly. Our service was wonderful, food was delicious and the menu had a lot of different options. A great improvement from years ago!
The food was cold when I go it. I think it may have just been warmed up in a microwave.
Out of lemonade again.
Table lamp too dim.
Prices have gotten ridiculously high.
Still like it, but getting to be unaffordable... Very sad.
