Great experience and will go again! Andrew is a great server!
Robert is a great server, my chicken scallopini was delicious and the tiramisu dessert, better than anyplace I've had it. Great evening!!
We have been to this Romano's Macaroni Grill previously and were very pleased with the food and service,
so we decided to take advantage of their special Valentine's Day menu. We both chose the Chicken Scallopini. It was superb. We also had stuffed mushrooms, excellent, and for desert cannoli, also excellent!
Our waiter, Bryce, was very attentive and knowledgeable about the dinner menu items as well as the bar menu and the liquor brands. Excellent service.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends for lunch or dinner, or any special occasion.
On a typical day, this would likely not be an issue. However, this was a reservation made for Valentine's Day and it was made a couple weeks in advance. We even arrived 15 minutes early. Still, we had to wait almost an hour to be seated and the actual dining time, from seating to check out, was much longer than usual.
I suspect that there was an influx of customers who arrived early and without reservations, and the restaurant tried to accommodate as many diners as possible as well as those on the waitlist. When we arrived even WE were placed on the waitlist. No explanation or priority was given to us - I don't know if this was on the hostess or a decision by management because of this particular day.
We recently went to a popular restaurant in the area on a very busy weekend night and time. That reservation was made directly with the restaurant earlier in the day. When we arrived, groups people waiting to be seated extended out the door. We walked up to the hostess, gave our name and stated we had a reservation. We were seated within 10 minutes.
What is the point of making a reservation in general or using a reservation service like OpenTable if it adds no value to using it? I feel like we were punished for doing so. It definitely didn't make the night any more enjoyable than if we chose to spend a quiet evening at home. I understand that there is heavy traffic during the holidays, but isn't it the business' responsibility to plan for that?
Would I recommend others to dine at Romano's? Of course. Food and ambiance is great. Service is good. But my advice would be to go during non-peak periods if you can to avoid the frustration.
Man this place sucked. We had reservations and still had to wait about 45 minutes. Food took another hour or so once we were seated... I wish that the owner of this place didint make it so understaffed
Sam was a great server and the food was great.
The place was half full, once seated it took Sam 20min to come take drink orders (only after I went to the hostess and asked for the waiter/ess to come). I placed the entire order because I didn’t want to keep looking for the waitress. Food came out quick. Not the best food. I can see why all these locations keep closing
Service staff was friendly. However, the service was very slow. Our waiter might have been the only one that gave slow service. We had to ask other wait staff for assistance.
I brought my kids for dinner on NYE, the food was great! the waiter didn’t know much about the wine selection. We only saw him when he took our order and to drop off the bill. We waited a good 30 min for bread. Over all I think holidays need more staff.
Have been a long time customer of Macaroni Grill and will continue to be. Their quality of customer service, food selections and prices is by far, in our opinion, one of the best places to go for just a quiet dinner or a celebration, such as our last visit, New Years Eve....
This is our second year to do Christmas dinner here. With reservation, very short wait. However , the first sat us in the bar are , waited over 25 ,inured, no one came to acknowledge us. we went to Hostess, asked to be moved to main dining area. We were very pleased they did it very quickly ,a don our new server was on top of it. We needed up having a great dinner, there 3 course price fix menu was great. The definitely need to work on more servers in Bar area, but dining area service and food was good.
We went on Christmas Day. Family of four. My husbands food came about 20 minutes after ours. Nobody offered us parmesan cheese. I would have guessed it was the servers first day as a server. He didn’t really know what he was doing. The restaurant was busy but not super busy. Not at all impressed.
Excellent service from Rob. And the penne rustica was excellent as well. The best tiramisu anywhere in this area and beyond.
Excellent food love being able to write on the table cloth and drop pictures
Nice time good food
Disappointed that they ran out of turkey on Thanksgiving!
The Food was Very Good, soup was Excellent (Lobster Bisque). Thanksgiving Turkey dinner overall was Great, the service was a little lacking, for the value it was good. Manager came to our table and wished us a Happy Thanksgiving, which was very nice.
Got right in. Order taken very quickly. Took awhile to get main course. Potions way to large. Great wine list for this type of restaurant.
Excellent waiter , great food. Hardly anyone in the restaurant though, but had a good evening,
Romano's always feels like a little bit of home. We go there often enough that we know many of the staff, and they remember us too. We're not fans of absolutely everything on the menu, but there are plenty of dishes we can count on for a great meal, and it's fun to step out of the tried-and-true now and then. Tried the pizza this time—very tasty! And our server, Jenée, was a delight.
The food was superb, the service was excellent and we've already made plans to return once a month!
We were there to celebrate a birthday. I wonder why, not only macaroni grill, but many other restaurants always ask about the occasion for dining out and then never honor it by offering a free dessert. Anyway, we did have a thoroughly enjoyable dinner and great service as always.
This was our first visit to this location and we will definitely return! Our server was John and from the beginning to the end of our meal..... he was on point!! John was friendly, professional, made suggestions, checked in on us, etc. This was probably the best customer service we have ever received at a Temecula restaurant! The food was great too! Hot, fresh, great flavor, etc. This was a wonderful dining experience!
Excellent wine and food. Kiara served us and she was great. Very hard working and pleasant.
I love going here, and makes it even better i can reserve online. Its good food and pretty quiet. the waiter was attentive but not crowding. They even sang Happy Birthday in Italian :)
We went there for the Monday special and all four of us were extremely pleased with the meals and the service. We all shared a tiramisu for dessert and agreed that there was none better than macaroni grill’s.
Our waitress was very helpful, although food was ok, but nothing great. For chain restaurant, I would prefer Olive Garden instead.
Note to self: The very popular dining hour of 6 on a Saturday might not be the best time to come for a leisurely dinner here. The food was just as good as always, but the sheer number of other customers created a bit of perceived pressure to order quickly, eat fairly rapidly, depart hurriedly... Still, the stuffed mushrooms have improved even more since the last time we ordered them—and the crowded room somehow meant that we got our entrées extremely fast (perhaps there was a corresponding increase in staff?). Love me some Macaroni Grill, but methinks I will love it more if I stick with earlier or later dinner times...
Been there three times now and we just love it!! Good is always delicious no matter what we get each time. Love the specials also as a rewards member.
The waiter was wonderful!!!! The only complaint on the food was the prosciutto was too salty. The rest of the food was really good.
Wonderful food. Never have any complaints. The hostess was delightful and our server superb!
Excellent all around. The Italian salad is amazing as is everything on the menu.
Mark was great! Food was awesome and wine superb.
First time at the Macaroni Grill and my husband and I were very impressed. Loved the decor, waiter was excellent along with the manager who greeted us and told us about their rewards program. Love the idea of unlimited salad and soup for just $2.50 with a meal....fantastic!! Meals were delicious also! Definitely will be back again real soon.
Food was excellent. Server was fun. Good wine selection. Gluten free options.
Our host, waitress and servers were very warm, friendly and attentive to us. Great customer service and ambiance!
Birthday dinner was pleasant. We would visit there again.
It is a fun environment with great bread and a great atmosphere with the ability to draw on your table.
