Some of the most memorable meals happen when good friends come together to share delicious, freshly prepared food in a setting filled with warmth and fun. That"s the kind of experience that inspires every dish on our menu at Spaghetti Warehouse. No wonder our Guests keep coming back for so many Spaghetti Warehouse specialties, from Our Incredible 15-Layer Lasagne to Spaghetti & Meatballs, Beer Chili to Fettuccini Alfredo,and Chicken Parmigiana. And with every entrée, we also serve hot sourdough bread accompanied by our craveable garlic butter, plus your choice of our Bottomless Garden salad or savory soup.

Service was ok. We had to request our used salad plates to be removed from the table and we had to request drink refills.
Food took a long time to come. It was ok. Two members of our party ordered manicotti and it was so hard they needed to use a knife to cut it.
Online reservation was quick and easy to make.

Wonderful dining experience! Our server was very attentive and you cannot beat the Warehouse Wednesday deals... $5.99 dinner! One of our favorite family restaurants to dine at.

Sadly I must say I was disappointed with the food at the Spaghetti Warehouse. The meatballs were very bland...almost like they were purely ground beef with no flavoring. My son had shrimp alfredo dish and the cheese sauce was also very poorly flavored with a poor consistency (not creamy at all!!) The spaghetti sauce was overly sweet tasting.
Our service was also lacking. We had a very small table and the dishes were not cleared away to make space. (We actually sat some of our empty salad plates and our bread plates on an empty serving tray nearby.)
The beverages were incredibly over priced!! My husband ordered a simple vodka-lemon water drink and we were charged $10! Our pop/iced tea drinks were $2.70 each!! I was astonished.
The waiting area's game tables were very loud and were disruptive to our conversation.
I just couldn't believe what a poor experience we had. It seems so very different from the last time I ate at a Spaghetti Warehouse a few years ago in Columbus. :-(

Sorry to say, but we won't be back.

We gathered at your establishment for a family dinner. The service was spot on very courteous and professional. We also had a waiter in training and she was very pleasant, helpful, and attentive. Our food entres were delicious and fulfilling. If you choose a pasta dish, the sauce is a little on the sweet side. My preference is on the spicier Arrabbiata side. Any leftovers were just as delicious the next day. We will definitely come back to enjoy your services again.

My chicken parm was a bit grisly and chewy; it was a birthday but even though I put it in the reservation, that was not acknowledged. However others very much enyoyed their food and the atmostphere is fun to take children.

Had a birthday party for my uncle. Made reservations on open table but had to add someone a few days later so I called them and added one making sure they knew I had a reservation from open table. The morning of I had to once again call and add 4 people and I again verified I had an open table reservation and what the total amount of people should be. Once we arrived we were short 4 seats and the one staff member whom I’m guessing was a manager of some kind had a fit when a waiter added a table at the end of ours to meet our needs. They still need a little work on their reservations.

Arrived at 5:15, very few tables full.Waited over an hour for our food, hair in the dip. Actually had to ask for a lime slice for my mule???Said the kitchen was backed up.....several people who arrived later received their food. Mychicken park looked like it had been sitting awile.They took the apps off the bill after we asked. Had to ask! No reason for us to rush and barely make a 7:30 show at the Civic with 5:15 reservations. I made reservations early because I have had slow service before, two strikes, you are out.

We came to The Spaghetti Warehouse for dinner before a show at the Civic Theater. We made reservations for 6:30, but were not seated for another fifteen minutes, despite tables, including the one we were eventually seated at, being open. Our server came to our table, got us our drinks, took our orders, and our food came out about 30 minutes later, making us nervous that we would be cutting things close for the show. We asked for the check with our food, but then our server did not come back for a while to take it. This probably wasn’t due to oversight so much as how busy he was- he appeared to be working several sections. Several people around us were having the same experience- seated late after reservations and one family had not even received their food despite being seated and ordering before us.

The food was decently good, but the subpar service will make me think twice about going back.

We had reservations at 6 and were seated right away. The waiter service was terrible. He took over 10 minutes to bring Parmesan cheese and when we asked for refills on our drinks he took 25 minutes to get them; by that time we were ready to leave. The salad was blah (iceberg lettuce, some brown pieces, one ring of onion and a small slice of tomato). My lasagna was dry, cheeseless, and tasted like it was at least a day old and warmed in the microwave. The chicken Alfredo didn’t have much flavor and the chicken had a “not done” texture, so my daughter in law didn’t eat it. Getting and paying our bill was another 20 minute fiasco. The 2 stars are for the quick seating and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. One star for the actual service is generous. Highly disappointed. :(

Celebrated my daughters birthday. Server was over the top friendly and sweet to my daughter.
He brought her a Virgin Dacquri for her birthday, even though she turned 21. She didn't want any alcohol. He then brought her a chocolate cupcake with a candle. The restaurant was very quiet with only a few customers, so the attention he gave to us was phenomenal.

They put us off in the back, at two round tables pushed together when there were tons of open tables. We were only a party of 8. Chicken parmigiana was brunt, shrimp Alfredo was clumpy, lasagna was small, hidden under tons of sauce. They didn’t even acknowledge my daughters birthday. Service was very slow.

Was very displeased with the staff greeting. They told me I had no reservation listed for our partying, and was rude as I stood there with my father( who has recently had a stroke) I explained to them that it was ok, and to just put my name in, that I needed to seat my father on the bench. They rolled their eyes and it just made me uneasy. I have never had that happen before....and I have seen it much more hectic. On the other hand our waiter was FANTASTIC. He catered to our large group and the needs of my Father.
We will go back, I just hope the " greeting" team can improve their smiles.....

Our visit to Spaghetti Warehouse was average at best.
We had a reservation, but was given a tiny little table in a back corner. We were uncomfortable and did not fit into the booth. We are all tall people and we couldn't even get our legs underneath the table. The booth stuck out longer than the table and we literally were sitting on top of each other.
The food was barely warm.
The one bright spot was our waiter. He was "on it." He was attentive and did a great job.
Very disappointed for the price.

My family came to celebrate my moms birthday.The food was horrible. I sent my food back. The rest of my party took the rest of the food home. I have been to the spaghetti warehouse in Columbus and their food is top notch. The pasta lacked season and was boy cooked all the way. The website said unlimited salad and bread but we each got one salad and the server only placed two places of bread on the table. The server was the best thing about this experience. I saw the reviews about how the food wasn't that good. I decided to take a chance..never again

Great evening at the Spaghetti Warehouse-Akron, we had a large party, and everything about the evening was flawless, the food was delicious, the service was fast and attentive, the atmosphere is very nice, the decor certainly says Akron all the way. While not the quietest place, the noise level was perfect since we were a large group and were not exactly quiet either. All of our attendees had a blast, thank you for a great evening at the SW.
