    DO NOT USE OPEN TABLE to make reservations for this restaurant. Waited 20 minutes for our reservation and according to the hostess, the reservation never made it to the restaurant. Wait time was 35 minutes when we walked in but the hostess said she would return to check to see if the OPEN TABLE reservation made it to the restaurant. More people walked in and were placed on the waiting list. When I asked again to check if our reservation made it through she said it still hadn’t made it. I asked if she placed us on the list according to the time we got to the restaurant and she didn’t. Wait time was now 50 minutes and 20 minutes had already passed since our arrival. Don’t know if the hostess was lying but she was not professional and rude. So much for a nice dinner for my Hubbie’s birthday dinner. Ended up enjoying dinner at Chik-fil-a, no wait time and fast service, delicious food. Sorry open table-not clear who is at fault for this misfortunate event.

    It was great to get a reservation for New Year's Eve, and the staff was very accommodating. Unfortunately, a couple of our table's meals came out lukewarm, and the drinks were a bit weak, but overall, it was a positive experience.

    My Opentable reservation seemed to confused the staff. We were seated after 15 minutes and nothing on the table. Service was slow but they were definitely short staffed. Served appetizer without utensils or napkins. Everyone loved their dosh but my was dry. I must be the judgy one 🤣

    Arrived right at our reservation time, 5:30, we were quickly sat . Place was very busy- server was Emily , who was awesome. She told us right up front , cooks were behind, and food would be slow. We appreciated that, and put our order in. Right way. Appetizer and drinks came reasonable time. Dinners were a little delayed, but nothing to get upset about. Total time was two hours . Can’t same for the rest of us.. larger parties were not happy, long waits for sure. Our three of our dinners were very good.

    Our server admittedly told us she was new when she had brought out a buffalo chicken sandwich instead of a buffalo chicken parmesan dinner. She was unaware that they had 3 different chicken buffalo chicken entrees on their menu and put in the first one that she found on their entree screen, even though we mentioned to her that we were getting one buffalo and one regular chicken parmesan entrees. Even though she had made an error, our remake food order was out at the end of the cue, that we waited at least an hour for our food and we're there 2.5 hrs. When we had arrived at the restaurant, there were only a half dozen tables seated, by the time we received our food, they were very busy. I went to the ladies room when we arrived and before leaving and both times the trash was overflowing. The men's one stall was out of toilet paper, so both needed cleaning. Despite the shortcomings on Christmas dinner, the food was delicious and the staff was friendly.

    Romano’s is our go to. They have consistently performed well for us. The server was competent, friendly, but very overworked. Not his fault. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will look to them for holidays as well as just a casual evening or lunch out.

    It was our first time dining here, we always do to go due to the pandemic and we didn’t know about this place before COVID started. Everybody was so nice and me and my family felt like they took care of all our needs. Price wise, food and cocktails was pretty decent. We had a great night. Thanks!!!

    This was, by far, the worst food I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The sauce tasted like it was a straight out of the can. The spaghetti was not hot. Whose ever mama put her name on the meatballs should be embarrassed. The lasagna bites were good. If the stuffing was actually IN the mushrooms, they might have been good. I was embarrassed that I brought my daughter and her boyfriend. The service was excellent. The server was very friendly and on top of things.

    The restaurant was quiet when we arrived, as it was before the start of normal dinner hour. It took a few minutes before someone acknowledged that we had been standing there and finally come to seat us. We had arrived early for our reservation. I had to request refills for our drinks. The food was delicious. We had the Chicken Parmasana, mine the buffalo. I was disappointed however that Mac Grill adds a new $2 surcharge to every check as an inflation fee. I wonder how that gets reported on their taxes? They closed our local Macaroni Grill, but won't be making the additional drive, an additional 30 miles, as inflation is costing us more in gas to also pay an inflation fee to the restaurant.

    Post Pandemic Closures you are remerging nicely. Last night you had a violinist, who briefly introduced his 5-year-old brother (also a violinist). To have in dining entertainment (return) to a dining experience was a nice touch of normalcy.
