Meals has a lot of protein Shrimp/Chicken, but lacked in flavor. Service was great and prices were average.

Maggiano's is a favorite of ours - especially when we have tickets to the theatre. They are always willing to accommodate their service to get us to the show on time. Family style dining works well for small groups but individual ordering is fine too. They offer great selections of delectable entrees! The staff is very friendly and efficient!

Salad was quite tasty. We did not like our meals much; they were blah. High prices for just blah food. Disappointing given past experiences and memories of good food. We'll pick other restaurants from now on when we're in Boston.

Ordered family style before show at Boston Opera House, short on time, but wait staff was exceptional at keeping orders on time and billed so we weren't late for show time. Food was excellent and great portions. Would highly recommend!

Took a small group here for a birthday dinner before a show. We were seated promptly, food arrived fast and hot. Our server did very well attending to us even though he was obviously very busy with several large parties. The only thing that disappointed me was that we had called the morning of our reservation and asked if they could do something special for the birthday girl. We were told they would make a note (we wanted to surprise her) and that they would bring out a slice of cake with a candle after dinner. Never happened and there was no mention of it. I would suggest stepping away and telling someone once you arrive if you have any special requests. Other than that it was great.

Out for dinner before taking the kids to see a musical. Our eldest son (age 9) has life threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. We were satisfied but not impressed with the way that was handled. Our server's knowledge of the allergen policy was not up to par but he did get a sous-chef t come talk to us, which made us feel a bit better. Our server was forgetful and not very personable, so we were not impressed with that, either. We were over-charged for one menu item while another was completely left off (and quickly added back on) and rather than simply apologizing, the server made several excuses which is just annoying. The food was delicious and that was certainly the highlight for us. We won't be tripping over ourselves to come back but we did enjoy the food.

I have been to this restaurant many times in the past, at least once or twice a year. Typically, the food and service are good and it's been a great place to bring out-of-town guests. This past Monday, we had a party of 8 (4 adults, 2 children, and 2 teenagers). The service was very slow, and my dinner (glazed salmon with asparagus) was not enjoyable. The asparagus was tasteless and the salmon was so dry it was difficult to swallow. We ordered a bottle of wine for the 4 adults to drink with dinner, but the meal arrived so late, we had already finished the wine. I then ordered a glass of wine for myself to drink with my meal, but the wine never arrived. Monday's experience was a-typical and I hope that this was just a one-time experience. On the upside, our waitress was very nice and friendly and the Chef came out to talk to our party about certain foods we could not eat.

Maggiano's is by far one of the best restaurants in the country. Probably my personal favorite. I have dined at Maggiano's for most of my casual and business meals and all of my accompanying parties were quite pleased. Great food, personable waiters/waitresses and elegant interior dining. I would most certainly recommend them to any inquiring party.

Our server was obviously new at yhe job so he was a bit confused about my husband's order for his drink. But he tried his best so that's a plus sign for him.

Service was very good. Also chef was very good discussing ingredients and modifications to the dishes because we had people with food allergies. We went with family style. It was a lot of food. Country style pasta was below expectation, other dishes were reasonable. Be careful they only serve dinner menu on Sundays so it was very pricey so I wish they make that clear on the website.

I don't understand all the excellent reviews. This place is overrated. Went on a Friday night and place was moderately busy. The food was over cooked. The risotto was like mashed potatoes and the salmon was cooked like jerky. The waiter never offered us dessert just placed the check down and walked away.

Went for my daughters 21st birthday. From the moment we stepped into Maggiano's we were treated like family. Maître D Johnny K is a class act and a true professional. We had 7 in our group and went family style. Food was outstanding. Service was terrific. Will definitely return to Maggiano's Boston!

Everything was great from start to finish! Our server Anthony was very friendly, efficient and helpful. I must say patient too, as one of us had many special instructions for her meal, and everything came to us exactly as requested. I had the Chicken Francese which I have had before at Maggiano's in other cities and it was excellent as usual. Added a lobster tail which was prepared as well as any I've had elsewhere. The atmosphere is very upscale, kind of dark but I liked it. It's also has a friendly, vibrant feeling, not stuffy. It's hard to believe that it is a chain restaurant; It doesn't seem like one even with the same menu and similar decor at each of the three I have been to. Next time I go to Boston I will definitely be back.

Quantity over quality
We had the family style which I would not get again. Maybe the a la carte food would have been better quality as it's not cooked in huge batches and kept warm all day? The eggplant parm sauce was extremely acidic, Chicken Marsala was good. The best part was the dessert, the brownies were awesome!
Authentic Food From a Chain
Service was outstanding. Server checked back frequently and had a terrific smile and attitude. Drink orders came quickly. We had the Chicken Francese and Chicken Marsala. Both dishes were flavorful and done to perfection. The Spaghetti Aglio Olio was the side for the Marsala dish and was very good. I appreciate they offer a "Lighter Take" on many meals for those watching calories. My first time in and I was surprised by the quality of food and level of service.
Had a great meal here with friends.
The lobster carbonara was outstanding! I would also highly recommend the bruschetta for an appetizer.
High Quality, low price
I had family in town and my mom was craving some Italian seafood, so I made a reservation for 6 of us. They have a small bar area we waited at for the group, then were seated and attended to by a terrific waiter. Bread and oil to start is always great. We all ordered a meal (6), a bottle of red wine and 2 beers and the bill was only $170. The quality of the food was outstanding. Everybody raved about their dish, and we've had some good Italian in the past. I had the pasta dish with mussels, and it had a ton of seafood in it. Usually there's not enough but I could barely get it all down. Can't recommend this place enough

My favorite restaurant in Boston! I make sure to stop in every time we're in the area. Highly recommend it! Delicious food and great service! The best Italian I've ever had :) There was a large party next to us, to the noise was louder than previous visits, but that was okay!

Great place with great food, service and reasonable pricing ! Will definitely recommend 😜
Authentic Italian that Real Italians People go to.
We have eaten at at least 6 or 7 Maggianos on the From Midwest to East coast. The Consistency of the experience is perfect. You think you went to the same Restaurant each and every time. The Ambience and the wait staff personalities down to a science. The Food is consistent in appearance and flavor at every restaurant. Delicious

I find it impossible that a chain restaurant can produce such exquisite quality. Stunning. If you were to open several other places with less noise, all the better. I am willing to go Sunday early day to avoid the crowds.
We arrived early and were seated right away. Everything was delicious - the bread, salad, main courses & desserts. Great variety on the menu. Service was fantastic.
