Very good food. Service was a little slow but they were busy so it was understandable. Even being busy the service and food was great!

Pretty good experience. Only issue was they were out of some pretty basic items. Supply issues are understandable, but would have liked to know what they were out of before server started taking orders. One unacceptable outage was their gluten free pasta, since we had someone with Celiac disease in our party and we chose this restaurant so she could have pasta. Everything else she could have had, they were out of, so she ended up having to have a weird dish of miscellaneous meats and veggies. Not okay.

Our service here was excellent. We were able to get a reservation and were seated as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was excellent and made some excellent recommendations for appetizers. We enjoyed fried macaroni and cheese balls and the fried mozzarella. Food was fresh, hot, and arrived quickly. Waiter was polite and attentive. Our drinks were always full. Great date night.

Ceasar salad is very good and so is the penne rustic. The Chicken marsala was way too bland.

Horrible service and food. Slow, cold, extremely un-attentive service, and not 1 staff member was wearing a mask; not even 1 person. The staff was yelling at each other, unprofessional, and easily overheard soealing negativrly about guests and proactively avoiding them. My family has not stopped saying how terrible this place was, it will be remembered forever. Never coming back.

We made a reservation for Christmas Dinner. The restaurant was clean, accomodating of small children, and the staff were winderful. The food was very generous and they had gluten free pasta if that is a need. Overall, a wonderful way to spend Christmas dinner, when away from home!

Haven’t visited this place in a couple of years. It feels like it has really struggled. The food quality in particular is much less appealing than I recall. Service was just okay, probably worse when you consider how empty the place was. Not sure if it was just a tough night, or if this is the norm. Paid way too much money for food that felt on par with fast food quality.

Somewhat over priced for what you get. My wife ordered the salmon and it was over done and dry. Restaurant seemed a little short staffed. Also, having only diet Pepsi without option for Diet Coke or Diet Dr. Pepper is also a downer...

Great tasting food that left me wishing they had served me the whole dish, or at least that I could have enjoyed a whole fulfilling conversation in its place. I would not recommend this restaurant. While it is a decently appointed space, the open air environment makes it extremely noisy. The food was fantastically cooked, and tasted wonderful, but it was a rather disappointing helping at the price point. Properly cooking pasta is not a sufficient justification for an $18 per plate sitting. I had the Chicken Scaloppine which was flavorful and interesting but appeared to have half of a butterflied chicken breast, and only enough sauce to provide flavor through roughly 3/4 of the dish. My husband had the Pasta Milano, which similarly was not a satisfying portion although it tasted impeccable. I could understand the pricing of the food if it included an atmosphere that was conducive to socialization, but it often felt like screaming was the volume choice of the entire restaurant simply because there's no sound buffer in a rather large space, that also has a clear view and earshot of the rather clangorous kitchen. The staff were pleasant, did their job well, and did not press our departure. Overall, the experience was enjoyable but didn't meet the crucial baseline of a wonderful restaurant experience by feeding me a whole meal.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Been there a couple times b4 for T'giving. Previously a very good experience, but this year the service was much slower(took 20 mins for server to return and take our order) and when the food finally arrived(after another long wait), it was lukewarm at best though the quality was very good. I wonder if our food was sitting out getting cold while our server was dilly-dallying?

We dined at Macaroni Grill 10.25.21 for a friend's birthday. Two of us ordered the Shrimp Portofino. It was delicious. Another friend ordered the Chicken Scaloppini. It looked wonderful, and she said it was yummy. We were well taken care of, but weren't bothered, which enabled us to visit and enjoy our meals. It was a lovely evening. Many thanks.

Our server was very attentive and helpful. She is a keeper! The food was good BUT the appetizer mushrooms were a little on the tiny side and my Lamb dish I expected to be served on the bone but was complete chopped up and removed from the bone which was disappointing.
Over all we enjoyed the meal.

Food delivered 1.5 hours after our arrival. Food cold. 5 meals delivered out of 6. We needed to wait 10 more minutes for 6th meal. No concern about correcting the poor performance. Waiter blamed cooks for “mess up.”

We waited 40 minutes to get seated even with a reservation and then waited another hour to get our food once we ordered. Very poor experience at a restaurant we usually love.

We were sat next to the kitchen so it was so loud that we could hear each other talk over the clanging plates. Plus the service was not great. The only great thing was the manager trying to make things right.

Food was excellent but similar to other places in today's world very slow - they could use a lot of help if they could find it and find ways not to yell at each other so loud but other than that the food was amazing and our server was great (just stretched too thin with too many tables).
