We had not been here for quite some time. It was a pleasant dinner experience. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The apps were good, especially the Brussels sprouts. Highly recommend. We had the salmon dish and chicken Marsala, both delicious. Go. You will not regret it.

Service was great. Atmosphere was nice. Waiters were all busy. Like the fact I can see into the kitchen. Drove 14 miles to this location. Too bad our old location close to our home closed. I tried the Create Your Own this time with penne pasta, roasted garlic cream sauce, sundried tomatoes, garlic, brocolinni and chicken. It was perfect.

Service was excellent. Food was very sub-par. Did not seem fresh and the fettuccine alfredo was like a block of lukewarm fat and butter.

The place was energetic and popping but the music a little too loud for my taste. I could hardly hear my date. Food was amazing, as always. I tried the spaghetti and it was delicious and complimentary!!! I was surprised that it wasn’t fake advertising. Told my friends about my night and recommended to try out the place.

They will go out of business soon with everything!!! The food was horrendous, came late and most of our orders were just plain bad. Pastas were way over cooked and tasteless, our drinks were late even though we ordered them when we sat down. The place wasn’t clean and restrooms were dirtier than middle of the road rest areas. OpenTable should remove them from the app.

Our dinner was very good and server was awesome! The only thing is we made a reservation on Open Table and when we got there they said they had to seat someone in front of us so we still had to wait approximately 20 minutes or so.

ROMANO’S MACARONI GRILL MISSED THE MARK. How can lasagna be delivered to your table cold and require reheating, especially if it’s made fresh? Not much more to be said about the poor dining experience on Mother’s Day except…our server was nice and helpful.

First time customer…and last time customer.

They were nice enough to get 2 tables together to seat 6 altogether since 2 friends decided very late to join us. We had to sit outside since a couple of people did not want to sit outside because they feel it’s safer outside. We waited for the table outside for about a half hour since other people were eating slowly outside. There were a lot more tables outside but they said they can’t use them. I understand since everyone is low on staff.
Once we sat outside everything was great (except some friends didn’t like the server too close to their faces, but that’s just my friends’, not the server’s problem).
