    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.

    Reservation was at 9pm and location closed at 9pm. To paraphrase, the hostess pretty much told us we could stay but options are limited because kitchen already shut the stoves off.

    Food was great as always, problem was they were very busy, had reservations for six o’clock was seated on time but after we ordered drinks and appetizers they came in a reasonable amount of time the server came by and said our food would be right out problem was we hadn’t had our order taken, he apologized and took our order shortly, we waited and waited but nothing he came back again said it will be ready quickly but still nothing, with the open kitchen I could see he was trying to get it but not having much luck the cooks looked like they were ignoring him, we were minutes away from walking out when he came and said he would comp the meals saying it was his fault ( I don’t think that was correct as he was trying to get it for us) the food arrived soon after that and he did make it right as far as the bill was concerned. Bottom line food was great as always but the experience was vastly different than usual, there are too many good places to choose from to take a chance of that happening again

    We had a wonderful waitress to start off the special day;Dana. The service was wonderful in spite of the busy, busy day. Food came in great shape, tasty and more then enough. We sat in the bar where it did get a bit noisy due to some dishes breaking and the blender going, but we got thru it. Had a lovely time and will definitely go back.

    I understand everywhere is short staffed but it took a little over a hour to even receive drinks (waiter and etc.) the waiter was clearly stressing due to the short staffing which we tired to be understanding but when she wasted a glass of water and not offering anything to help us clean it up was no okay. Food was tasty and cold.

    I used to have a better dinner experience, the food was not bad (I say average) but it was a lot better before and worth the money. The waitress was was trying her best, but I guess they need help. I recently went twice to Romanos and both experience were the same, Maybe the location in Temecula, because before I used to go to the one in Corona and the food service was great ,but the drive makes a difference they are places closer to dine with quality and great service too ! Overall, I would say work on getting more employees and on the food quality . The place was very clean and nice , I love Romamos, the happy birthday singing in italiano, the place was full of life, bring it back
