Chicken scallopine was delicious! Service was a little slow waiting for bread and dipping vinegar. Tables are really packed in one big room. Would have liked a little more privacy.

This was a great time. We really enjoy Mac grill. Saddened by them not having brick chicken anymore. We felt as if they wanted to turn over the table even though there were 10 or so open at any given time.
We ordered an appetizer and entree with salad. For a time, we had all on the table at the same time.
All that said, still a 4/5 and will go back again.

We had a very nice time with great food, service and wine. Have not been to a Macaroni Grill in 14 years - it took that long to find one near where we lived. Enjoyed it very much!!

There was no soup of the day, there was no Special that was listed as Chefs Special and it was only 5:30. An entree came out cold and the salads were poorly dressed. Lastly, there was no Miller Lite or Grey Goose.

Haven't been there in over a year, used to be a regular with my family, and was surprised it wasn't crowded as in years past but after eating there now I know why. The service was subpar and the food arrived cold, with no offer of grated cheese or pepper and we were only offered the great bread after asking for it once our entrees arrived. Only a few tables were occupied when we left at a time that should be crazy busy. Its sad because it used to be a family favorite, no more.

Went here for Valentine's Day dinner and they were very busy. Our awesome server, Amanda, kept checking in on us and kept our drinks topped off. She was very sweet and also happy to answer all of our questions about the menu and made great recommendations. The food was delicious and the Tirimisu was gorgeous and yummy. I always have a good experience dining at this location. Thank you to Amanda and the rest of the Macaroni Grill staff for taking good care of my partner and I this Valentine's Day! :)

I realize it was a busy night for them so I expected a bit of a wait. With that said we were seated in a timely manner per our reservations everything started ok we ordered and soon got our appetizers once our appetizers were finished the wait began it took over 2 hours sitting there waiting for our food. Our main course was supposed to come with a salad and house soup that never showed up and we were both so tired of waiting by the time our food arrived we asked for to go boxes and left. The food was pretty good but nothing to write home about. I may try again on a slower night to see how it goes but I think 3 1/2 hours from start to finish is a little long to spend at a restaurant especially one that is supposed to be that high rated.

It is our tradition to visit this restaurant on Valentines Day. This year was the best experience yet. They seem to be getting the hang of it. (Two years ago it was a bit rough). Our food was hot and fresh. Our waiter was professional and very pleasant. All in all it was a great experience.

I would describe the food as average. 2 of the 6 people in our party had their food come to table cold. The server was great. It was nice that we were able to make a reservation.

I love Macaroni Grill!! But this was not the best experience. Our waitress ignored us, taking orders from a couple of tables that came in after us before we flagged her down to take our order. We had to get the bus boy to get us bread and try to get her attention to refill our drinks, twice. The lasagne was good, but the Chicken Parmesan was kind of tough. My daughter ordered the salmon and wasn't that impressed either. We literally drove 60 miles to eat there because the one in Provo closed. We were celebrating two birthdays, which we mentioned to the waitress, and she didn't do anything about it or say a word. By the time we were done eating, we were running late for our show and didn't care anymore about the birthdays, we just wanted to get out of there. We went elsewhere for dessert.

Food and service is usually very good here. This time Appetizers came out right away but we waiting about 30 minutes after eating our appetizers to get our meals. Our server apologized for the wait and offered us 1 free dessert for our party of 5. We were about a minute away from walking out when our food came. And this time the food wasn’t worth the wait. I’ll probably eat there again but not any time soon.

I didn’t realize that you have to take for balsamic when you have olive oil in the plate to dip your bread. We had to ask for bread. Come on! In any authentic Italian restaurant that I have going to for 45 years, the balsmic/olive oil is on the table along with bread. The fritters de matte was a small potion for the price. It was my first time here. I would not recommend it to anyone.

Added 4 people to our reservation at the last minute and they were able to accommodate us, even though it was busy. The only thing bad is we were seated by the door and it was very cold. Every time the door was opened a blast of cold air hit us.

We have been going to Macaroni Grill for about 12 years. This last visit was the worst ever. The lasagna was mushy and tasted day-old. The bread was a different recipe or something. It was bad. All of the dishes were sub par. The overall food quality has gone way downhill. Too bad. We won't be going back. Too many other good options out there

I Went to this restaurant on the 24th and on the 31st of December 2018. The food is amazing. The service provided by Dean was so great. No wait time to be seated, Staff and other people nice and clean. Very professional. It was a great experience they keep the same standard every single time we go to this restaurant not only on special occasions. We loved it. Thanks.

Food is tasty and wonderful. Service is OK, but when it is extremely busy then things start to get difficult. Every single employee is friendly and working very hard but the experience suffers simply because there aren't enough people to go around on busy days and holidays. Will return on a less busy day for a better experience!

Our Host and server were very kind, although the service was extremely poor. Our food and salad arrived at the same time expect one salad and a soup she forgot. We had to reminder her serval times about the wine we ordered and also water for the table. We received three wine glasses out of four, We used a martini glass from drinks before ordering dinner as the four wine glass. After serving the food she didn't make it back see how everything was tasting. We had to ask other servers passing by for cheese, forks and E.T.C. We also had to plie dirty plates on our table to make room. We arrived at 5:44 p.m. didn't eat till 7:30 p.m. Food was cold and we asked to have desserts boxed up and the bill right away, knowing that it could be a while before they arrived. We think that maybe the problem was in the management under-staffing. I am sure that the "spaghetti factory" would of be a much better choice, as well as, the prices would have been more reasonable. I am sure that our server would have been excellent if she wasn't overwhelmed. Very disappointing.

Macaroni Grill is typically a decent place to eat but stay away from holidays and other busy days. Ran out of many specials by 4PM and server may have come to our table 5 times total. Salad not delivered and we were halfway through the entrees before the server returned. Overall disaster but I will probably go back during slower times again as they are typically pretty good.
