I would not recommend for lunch if you're on a schedule. We had 1 hr for lunch and ended up need 2 hours because service was extremely slow!!! Now we all have to make up 1 hour of time. I would recommend for dinner when you have no time constraint.

For not being busy, service was VERY slow. The server was very polite and attentive but too slow. There was no background music where we were seated like there was at the front of the restaurant.

The food was good but there were some sauces missing. The waiter was quite busy so until he got back to us we had just went ahead and ate it. I have eaten here several times before and I highly recommend this restaurant, it was just that I had brought a couple friends, who had never been there before, and I hoped everything would be perfect for them.

It was not super busy. Got in right away. Waiter tried really hard but was rarely able to check on us. Person bringing food out dropped 2 of our meals on the floor so 2 of us had to wait even longer. Service and quality have really gone down. Not sure if we will be going back anytime soon.

But I wouldn't recommend using your services because when I scheduled with you guys I called up spaghetti Warehouse and I did not have any reservation set up so I had to set it up myself by calling them myself so I would not recommend open table at all because you guys didn't get a hold of the spaghetti Warehouse and tell them I had to call them

The investments the new owner is making in the business are showing! Food was amazing! No more burned sauce for those of us who dine later in the evening! Excited about going back!

I have absolutely zero complaints. I did have to ask for them to bring me some more meat sauce for my side of spaghetti but the lasagna, chicken parmesan, meatballs, bread, toasted raviolis and sausage were all amazing. The service was perfect. The timing between our appetizer, soups and salad and our entrees was spot on. Our waitress was fun and bubbly and timed everything with drink refills and food perfectly.

This was my first visit to Spaghetti Warehouse in a very long time. The food was very good. It was warm and flavorful. The service was excellent. Our server was on the spot without being intrusive. I would definitely return.

Everyone seemed stressed. Lots of people helped our server, which was great, but everyone seemed frazzled to do it. Had to ask for napkins and forks 3 times before actually getting them.

It was a good meal but just not a great one.

I was disappointed that I made a reservation on Open Table, 2 days ahead, and still had to wait for a 1/2 hour and the table they seated us at had been empty the whole time. A party of 14 walked in just ahead of us, no reservations, and were seated and eating before we were. Not sure open table works👎

The restaurant was loud and very warm. The waitress was brusque and down right rude at times. The constant singing of happy birthday coupled with the noise makers made any conversation at our table difficult. The food was awful. Bread only half baked and doughy in the middle. Sauces were undercooked and tasted like it was poured straight from a can. My family and I will never eat here again.

I was looking forward to a going and nice meal for my birthday with my family and was disappointed. I made reservations online, when we got there they seated us at a table what was unprepared like we noticed other tables that had dinnerware, napkins and menus for people who had reservations. We placed our drink orders and an appetizer the server brought out our drinks and appetizer and some bread with no dinnerware, we sat there for a least 10 minutes no way to eat our appetizer or bread, an employee walked by we asked for dinnerware she said she would get us some, she never came back with any, so we got up and took some off another table that had been set for a reservation. The appetizer, bread and salad was good, the meals themselves were not. The meatballs I ordered with my meal came out plain which did not know that you had to add a sauce, but I asked for the tomato sauce and it wasn't good, the meatballs were dry and bland, the lasagna was ok, it had an odd flavor, and the spaghetti chili was ok. So overall we were all equally disappointed in the measl and service.

Our celebration of Grandmas Birthday (Great Grandma to the kids) was wonderful. Fun beyond our expectations, our food was fantastic and our service was the best we've ever had. Some of us arrived 1/2 hour early, no problem, they were ready for us!

Grandma loved the Birthday song with the bells!

Our food was delicious with generous portions so most of us took home doggie bags, okay people bags!

We will be back. Thank you.

We made a reservation on Open Table, but when we arrived, they seemed surprised to see us and said they would find us a table. The walls around the booth they took us to were splattered with food debris and the silverware had spaghetti sauce on it, forcing us to request clean utensils. We waited over an hour for our food. In general, it was not what we were expecting from this establishment.

I admit, this review is biased, because there really wasn’t anything wrong with our experience at the restaurant. We went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We parked just across the street from the venue, however, while waiting for the crosswalk light to change, we were approached by a man asking for cash. He became belligerent and demanding so my husband gave him $10. He gave us a nasty look and said, ‘I need at least $15.’ To avoid things escalating further, my husband gave it to him. My appetite was gone. We won’t be back- for no fault of the restaurant, but the experience with the neighborhood was enough to keep me away for a lifetime.

If you are going to be in downtown Dayton, it is a great place to eat. The fact that we had a Broadway play to see with five people in our part on a Friday evening , we did not want to take a chance that we would have to wait on a table. The fact that we could make a reservation was the best way for us.

Seated us late, put a party of children next to the bar. All the waitresses/manager were complaining the entire time behind the bar. Hostess was rude and literally walked away while my mother was talking to her. Didn't get the food we paid for, kids food was so bad they didn't eat and it was taken off the meal, however they went hungry. Basic requests took 18 minutes or were completely ignored *no creamer for coffee* and the bathrooms were all clogged and the stall door was hanging off the hinge.
