    Really not what it used to be. The waitress wouldn’t leave us alone. My food was cold and salty. We won’t be back. It used to be great. Sad.

    Food wasn't Good. Portion size was Small. Charged for 2 Glasses of Wine instead of 1. Had made Reservations for Daughter's Birthday, and nothing was done about this. Food was Barely Warm. Pasta was Mushy. Do not Recommend this place.

    I was worried at the beginning because there was only a few other customers in the restaurant. That being said, I’m glad it wasn’t busy because our server, Bryce, was an excellent conversation. Bryce had our drinks refilled all night, the order was correct and kept the bread coming. I heard him getting on the kitchen about our order taking longer than he thought it should and was apologetic without us bringing anything up. The food was awesome as well. Highly recommend the lobster bisque soup and rigatoni.

    Caprese salad was wonderful, as was the bread with olive oil and balsamic glaze! They didn't have the desserts I wanted but I get it, there are supply issues. I probably didn't need the extra calories anyway. Sweetest waitress and staff!!!

    I'll give them the benefit of doubt by saying they were probably really busy all day, especially before we arrived, due to it being Mothers Day... however, the restaurant was quite dirty. Food was ok

    Food was great! Service was horrible, drinks from the bar were very slow, appetizers came out at different times, ate them with no plates, napkins or silverware from the waiter. When asking the waiter for an update of the drinks he became very snappy. Floors where very dirty food way overpriced, will never eat here again.

    They seemed short of employees. Tables were not being bussed after the party left. So many dirty tables. Service was okay but not great. We were seated beside the kitchen which was a terrible table. We were in the path of kitchen traffic. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed. The food was good. We would have enjoyed it more if we had a better table. I would think that making a reservation would get you a better table.

    The food and wine were fantastic! Our waitress was very attentive, but she didn't seem to have good staff support for things like water refills, coffee (the cappuccino machine was broken), menu items (out of the lamb), and clearing the table. But, after all, it was Christmas day, and, all in all, we were happy and sated when we left.

    Food needed seasoning. Salt pepper or something sheesh.I had the mamas trio Lasagna was good chicken parm over cooked Alfredo was ok noodles were a little dry maybe from sitting under warmer light. Husband had steak and potatoes steak had no type of seasoning whatsoever appetizers we had Mac and cheese balls and mozzarella sticks again no seasoning could’ve been good if the bread crumbs had some flavor. Overall disappointing. First and last time going

    We used to eat here when we lived in Norfolk 7 years ago and it was always a pleasure. That is no longer the case. Our waitress was frantic. Running around. The hostess brought us our drinks in kids cups, the bread and olive oil tasted stale (also brought by the hostess) and the food was over cooked had no flavor and chicken was very fatty. We were extremely disappointed

    Restaurant was filthy. Floors disgusting. We were initially seated at a dirty booth with broken glass underneath it. Changed tables and had to wipe off our own seats of crumbs left behind by previous diners. Food was impressively bland (not sure how they achieved that). Place was at about 40% capacity yet it was difficult to get our servers attention. We sent 2 apps back, boxed up the entrees and left. It was a first date and it was not a good impression. Will not return or recommend.

    I love macaroni grill so much! Their food is amazing. Our waiter was great and the food came out super fast. The reason why I’m leaving this review is how they handle reservations. I understand with COVID that things are crazy and a wait time at a restaurant is expected. My husband and I have a 6 mo so we don’t go anywhere without a reservation for that reason. I’m not sure that it mattered at all for macaroni grill that we used open table. We still waited over 20 minutes once we got there and all other parties in the waiting area were seated first. I feel doubtful they all made reservations.
