    We’ve eaten at this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Food always delicious and the service always first-rate. Tonight was no different. Our server, Fisher, did a great job taking care of us.

    While the service is good (not excellent), the food was mediocre at best. The spaghetti pasta was soft, tasteless and overcooked. I’ve had better at Olive Garden at a less expensive cost. We won’t be returning.

    Enjoyable dinner. Our waitress was delightful. Restaurant wasn’t very busy and we had 10 people at our table. A few things were forgotten or slow to come. We probably could have used 2 servers and it seemed there were 2 available. Food was good and we were celebrating My Moms 80th birthday. A lady sang Happy Birthday in Italian to her which was very nice. Overall good, not great, but a memorable evening with family.

    We have eaten here on several occasions and never had any issues. Everything was great, however my ravioli was lukewarm when it came to the table. Not sure if the server let it sit there too long before bringing it or the cooks didn’t plate it timely. Everything else was wonderful though.

    Would love to tell you how it was, but they did not honor the reservation. When we arrived they said we made the reservation after 4pm and they don’t see the reservations?? Really, your website sends people to open table to make reservations. We were told we would have to wait and would be seated last, there were about 5 couples waiting. No thanks, we went somewhere else. We used to eat here 5-8 times a year, but after this we won’t be back. There are plenty of other options and restaurants that will honor reservations.

    We have eaten at Romano's Macaroni Grill many times over the years, and have always enjoyed it. This time, though, the service seemed uneven (except for our waiter, who did a great job), and we got off to a rough start. I had reserved a table on Open Table, but the woman at the podium denied any reservation under our name, then said reservations were having to wait, too. We put our name on the wait list and ordered wine at the bar while we waited about 30 extra minutes for our table. (There were empty tables both in the bar and in the restaurant.) Our entrees took about 45 minutes to be delivered to our table, and my pasta dish had soaked up most of its sauce and tasted dry by then. (Our waiter was attentive to us and came by at least twice during this time to assure us our meals were being prepared.) Despite my dry pasta, the overall quality of the food was good, including that wonderful bread, the Caesar salad, and my husband's shrimp alfredo. We'll be back, but I hope they will work on their customer service in the meantime.

    The staff and kitchen was completely unprepared EVEN THOUGH we had to make a reservation! We started off by our waiter spilling a glass of tea because of the lip on the table so he decided to move us to a different spot. The manager said we would receive an appetizer for the inconvenience, but that never came. After quite a wait, our dinner plates arrived, BEFORE our soup/salads. Our food was NOT hot and only one person received cranberry. Mid way through our meal we got our soups and salads and the gentleman who brought them said they were backed up because “everyone came in at once” which I find to be a ridiculous excuse. This place was just plain unprepared for what they were trying to offer. We had to repeat our dessert order because we were told multiple times that “the system was down” even though our waiter was carrying the same note pad he initially wrote our desserts on. We had to ask, when our waiter did stop by, for refills, even though our glasses were clearly empty. We had not dined at Macaroni Grill in quite some time and will definitely not be going back after an experience like this. Instead of offering us ways to make our experience better we were offered bad excuses. Not to mention at checkout we were told our bill had already been paid because they admitted to charging the wrong table and then they took a long time rectifying our new bill. What a joke of a Thanksgiving meal.

    Service was subpar. Waiter finally showed up and took drink orders then disappeared. Had to go ask another employee to find our waiter. Service finally picked up a little after this incident. I tipped 20%, not because the service deserved it, but because it was July 4th and just glad that someone was kind of working. The best part of the meal was the salad. We didn't order any specials. Everyone at the table ordered an entrée' off the menu, and a couple of deserts. First time that I have ever been to Romano's, even though I have been back in San Antonio since 74' and remember them opening in the 80's. Nothing spectacular that shouted I should come back.

    Took my mom and family here for Mother's Day; waited 2 hours for our food before we decided to leave. The restaurant was not filled to capacity; about half of the tables were empty. Our server was very sweet; we were not upset with her and left her a good tip. Mine and most of my family's first time here, and it is unlikely we will try again.

    We had a reservation for 11 people four didn’t show so it only ended up being seven of us. They said they were not liable for open tables reservations and didn’t have to honor them. There were two cooks in the building for maybe 200 people. It was a noisy, chaotic , loud and unnerving. They finally said it’s about 130 and took till almost 4 to service. The white staff was polite, but the manager was pathetic, rude and inhospitable. This restaurant has really taken a dive over the last couple of years. I’ve been there five straight Mother’s Day in a row, but I will not ever be going back. I don’t know how they’ll stay open I strongly recommend you avoid this place at all cost. Simply pathetic!

    When we checked in we were told that they were short staffed but we chose to stay and eat. As expected serive too way longer than expected due to lack of servers but food was cold as well. 2 meals, which were the same ontray, had entirely diffrent taste. One was overly garlicky and the other was extremely cheesy.
