I had heard great thins about this restaurant from many friends, so I was very excited to try this restaurant. I have a mixed review. The vibe is very good and the staff was very friendly. Our server Steven was excellent - polite, considerate and very professional. He was very knowledgable about the wine and made good recommendations. The food service was slow; it took about an hour and 15 minutes before our entrees arrived after we ordered. We were told that they had seated a party of 20 right before us and they were not expecting it because it was a slow season. However, it is a big enough restaurant (number of tables), that I do expect them to be prepared for that. Again our server and the manager were very nice and made sure we got extra appetizers before our entrees to hold us over.

Our entrees were yummy!!! But I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the portion size for the price we were paying. So overall, again a mixed review.

fun times at TMacs. The server was awesome. Great personality and very approachable. We did a family style sampler dinner of quite a few things on your menu and split it between all of us. I thought the food was good. The avocado sorbet was to die for. I thought a few of the items were a bit rich - wonder if you could perhaps come up with some more lighter items or vegetarian items. The hummus was tasty but very garlicky. Overall our group was very satisfied and had a great time.

T-Macs new menu really knocks it out of the park. Great quality, perfect sized portions, and prices that can't be beat. Great work Team T-Mac.

My wife and I were in Walla Walla for Fall Release Weekend, and we decided to return to T. Maccarone's after having had several good meals there before. The food was very good as usual. However, the service was nearly offensive. My wife and I are in our 60s. The millennial who served us repeatedly addressed us as "kids" until I bluntly told him to stop. This was both presumptuous and patronizing, and wholly inappropriate for the dining experience that I believe this restaurant aspires to provide. The service received the second star because the food arrived mostly on time and the waiter correctly worked out which glass of wine was whose after he nearly mixed them up. (We could tell by taste.) Overall, the management may wish to consider improvements in training their waitstaff regarding what constitutes respectful service.

T-Mac's is a great place for dinner after a day of wine tasting in Walla Walla. Our waiter, Rob, was polite, professional and attentive and gave good advice on wine and food. Logan worked with our group (of ten) to help get us all in - one table for 4 and another for 6.
Great job! We'll be back.

There's a bit of a 1980s vibe in the decor and ambiance that doesn't match up with the food, which is modern, sophisticated, and delicious. The menu is relatively small, which shows a confidence in the offerings and a cohesive concept. Our table shared three appetizers and cleared each plate. Everyone had pasta, either gnocchi or the Bolognese, and really enjoyed it. Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and not overbearing. It's fine dining in an unstuffy environment (apart from the aforementioned decor).

We shared a lot of small plates - salads and appetizers so that we could try a lot of things on the menu as it was our first time there. The brusssel sprouts salad is a must order! We also recommend the pear salad and grilled octopus. My son ordered the Bolognese. We love Bolognese sauce and make it a lot at home, but this was hands down the best Bolognese we've ever had!

Great, as always! They happily accommodate my diet restrictions, serve smooth sauces, have a fabulous wine selection (including local wines, of course), and provide excellent service. Bartender, Matthew, makes delicious cocktails and serves up friendly conversation. It's not unusual to see the owner, Tom, dining in the restaurant, as well--always a good sign. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

T Macs is back! Excellent food, service and ambience. The ambience here is intimate and the most enjoyable in Walla Walla. Service is prompt, friendly and attentive. Our waiter took our drink orders immediately and the rest of the meal was served at a perfect pace. I ordered halibut which was served with polenta and sautéed summer vegetable- delicious. The fish was cooked perfectly-crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. My husband ordered pork belly served with lentils which was prepared perfectly as well. Nothing to complain about and at this time T-Macs is the best restaurant in town.

We have always liked this restaurant....but found this time there was too much food. My appetizer of the meatballs, was way to big....should have had them for my entree! Each of us had more food on our plate than we could eat. It was delicious but portions were too big.

A favorite in Walla Walla. Limited menu but everything is done extremely well. It's easy to make a meal of the Mac and Cheese app or the antipasto plate was a perfect starter. The mains, well limited are all fresh or made inhouse and are certainly filling. We finished with the rashberry chocolate dessert shared between the three of us which was perfect. Finally the wine selection is extensive and the man at the bar knows his stuff. When in Walla Walla definately give T Macarones a try.

My wife's father was in town and we wanted to make sure to eat at a place we could depend on for a good experience. There are many good restaurants in Walla Walla, but T. Mac's always is a solid choice.

My wife and father in law had the chicken and commented how perfectly it was cooked. I had the bolo which was well balanced and satisfying.

Service was attentive and efficient.

Great time!

The quality is about equivalent to a high quality Portland restaurant, better than anything available in Eugene. The price is a little higher than average Walla Walla but worth it. We enjoyed everything we had: hors d'oeuvres, main course, wine by the glass and dessert.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. When we went there (just the two of us) the service was incredibly slow and the place wasn't even full. The first drinks we ordered took 15 minutes to arrive at our table. We ordered dinner at that time. The salads took another 15 minutes. We then ordered another round of drinks they literally took 20 minutes. We could see the bartender mixing other people's drinks and he left our ticket on the counter. He was also delivering drinks to other tables. He then went to one table where he stood and talked to them for 10 minutes. Our drinks finally arrived with a short apology. Our entrees finally arrived, over an hour after we ordered them. Another table near us got their entrees before we did even though they sat down well after we were there. Our server spent a lot of time at other tables and not much at ours. We are very easygoing and understanding people that just expect good service. My husband ordered the halibut which was tasty and very juicy for halibut. Nice golden brown sear on it. When my steak arrived it looked gorgeous so I was excited to cut into it, it looked like it was worth the wait! I ordered it medium rare. It was well seared on the outside but the inside was so beyond rare I think it was still mooing. By this point we were so turned off by this place that I sent my entree back and we just wanted the check. They did comp my entree thank goodness. We were kind and did leave a decent tip even though our experience was very much below standards worthy of a "fine dining" expensive restaurant. There have been many good reviews of this restaurant but we will not be going back there.

I remember as a kid, the only thing I wouldn't eat on the table was brussel sprouts....I thought I hated brussel sprouts until I had the brussel sprout salad - it was fantastic ! Great ambience. I love this place. Great service. I can't wait to go back !
