Yvette was our server. This was our second time we were seated in her section. She is superb; very kind, attentive, professional and knowledgeable. She is just awesome! Our food was good, too! The "Buy 1, Take 1" classic pasta is an amazing deal! We love Maggiano's!
Meal for 2 is SUCH a deal!
We had a group of 10 (8th graders on a trip and parents) and were out for a special last night together. We split into pairs and each pair ate an appetizer or a salad, bread, an individual hearty pasta dish, and split a large dessert for $42.95 - AND on top of that, each individual selected a pasta meal to go! That's a ton of food for that price, and we didn't have to worry about lunch the following day. I'd recommend this great value instead of ordering family style (which is over $30/person).
Every thing was excellent but food. Good place to go special in weekdays

Totally fine go a quick chain food meal for a largish family group. The kids love it and the food is plenty tasty as far as red sauce pasta. Service was great, incredibly friendly and attentive.

We always have a good time and a great meal at Maggiano's! There's too much food, of course, but that makes it possible for us to enjoy another dinner, at home, with the abundant leftovers. The servers are kind, responsive, and very friendly. Can't beat the prices, as well. We go often!

I wish I could remember our servers name because she was amazing. Attentive and timely we never needed to get her attention for something or felt smothered. Thanks for the delicious food as always.
Maggiano's Dellivers Again
Never disappointed with Maggiano's! The food was excellent as always and the take home lasagna was just a nice added benefit. The server was incredibly accommodating and allowed us to have our discussion without unnecessary interruptions. Great!

Came here for Mother's Day , didn't like the fact that they had a limited menu and some of the items were distasteful .
The Mother's Day special menu was a mandatory bust
We're fans of Maggiano's, but the Mother's Day special menu was mandatory and a bust. We came out to one of my favorite places for informal dinner, but OpenTable didn't tell us it was a mandatory prix fixe menu for the holiday. There was way too much food to enjoy, and most of it was poorly presented and prepared in an overly taxing environment. The salads were too wet. The antipasto was late and a meager variety of a few slices of one pepperoni and several routine cheeses, hardly of Italian inspiration and too embarrassing to call an antipasto. Chef usually spices up the pastas for our taste on request, but the Alfredo was inelegantly spiced with red pepper flakes. The spaghetti and meatballs lacked in meatiness what it aspired to in robust taste. It was mostly red pepper flakes seasoning meatballs that were overcooked because they were made in miniature. The Chilean Sea Bass was the winner here, but, as the only nice dish, it was too small to serve family style. The beef tenderloin should be better named beef tips, and they were tough, chewy, and the sauce was watery and tasteless. Even the vegetable selection was disappointing. We ordered a medley of squashes, but what came to the table without prior notice was stringbeans that were as Italian as an Inuit seal hunter. The waiter explained that they'd run out of our selection, so he picked for us. The sweet potatoes were quite good with some special seasoning, but my palate was ruined by then, and the dessert bar couldn't fix it. All in all, we go to Magliano's for nice Italian cuisine and excellent value, but $40 apiece for this dinner delivered by weak, over-taxed service was not value. We'll keep being fans of your $13-$16 eat one and take a second one home, but please let us know when you're having another special night so we can stay home.
Unexpected menu but overall positive experience
We came for a graduation celebration that fell on Mother's Day. After making a dinner reservation well in advance and confirming multiple times, it was not clearly communicated that there would be one fixed price menu for the evening because of the holiday. We even came to dinner the night before to look at the venue and try the food, and it was still not communicated to us. Nevertheless, we were able to find something on the menu for everyone in our large party, it just took a couple conversations with waiters and the manager. The quality of the food was better when we came individually the night before, but satisfactory given that we were there on Mother's Day. It was a very busy restaurant, so we would recommend going at a low time to receive the best service and food quality. We thank the establishment for their cooperation through our misunderstanding.
I had a reservation and was told on arrival that they were running behind on reservations, no apology, and that it would be another 15 minutes. After half an hour and checking back in with them, they said the table had been ready for a while and they thought they called our name. The hostess was rude, and acted like everything was an inconvenience. Once we sat, we were told they had a limited menu for the night even though no one had mentioned that there was one, and there was no advertisement on the signs outside of the restaurant indicating that there was only a fixed price menu for the evening, so we decided to leave. This was the first time I ever walked out of a restaurant.

This was a Mother's Day dinner, and I credit Maggiano's with doing its best to deal with an outrageously high demand. That being said, it was clearly sacrificing quality for quantity. The staff was attentive, and they were candid about the kitchen being unable to produce even the limited menu in a timely fashion. We also wondered about the Caesar salad being made with iceberg lettuce instead of romaine. Clearly a few steps away from the restaurant's Italian roots.
Had a reservation for 4:30 checked in and went right to the table. Then the waiter hands us a piece of paper and said this is our special Mother's Day menu. So we looked at it and notice it only had a few items on it not what we came their for. They didn't have salmon, fried Zucchini for the family menu. My wife was anticipating this day because this is her favorite restaurant and its Mother's Day we have not been their in a while. The waiters told us we could not get the usual family meal off the regular menu only what's on the piece of paper. We asked the waiter for a manager which never came to the table. So we kindly got up and left and spoke to a manager at the front desk and he said didn't you see we had a special mothers day menu when you made reservations online. I said yes but you also didn't make it clear that you could not order the family meal off the main menu. He said yes that's true I told him that was very deceptive!!!! So we went next door to Cheesecake Factory and had to wait 45min to get a seat and ate and enjoyed our meal.
Mothers Day Not a good choice.
Overall I love Maggianos been to locations all over the U.S. But the menu, service, food, for the Mothers Day Special put a bad taste in my mouth. The food quality and chooses weren't that good and portions were smaller. My server brung out 1 plate at a time which was not enough to serve my entire party. Overall my Mother's Day experience was horrendous.
Great for small parties
My family dined here on mother's day. There were 13 of us including two children. We have dined here before with smaller groups when it was not a special occasion, so we were surprised when a few snafus happened. The menu was pre-selected: anti-past, salad, entrée, sides, dessert for $39.99 per person. We placed our food order, but when the drinks were served we received the wrong beverage after we confirmed the description on the menu. Then our salads came, but we never received the anti-pasti. The manager came and corrected everything, but then our food was served cold. The food was delicious in the end as always, but overall the experience was not great.
My siblings and I finally got my 86 year old Mother to go out for Mother's Day for a change and she had to deal with this horrible experience. The entire service from start to finish was horrible and very unacceptable. I've never experienced this level of service there ever. I'll probably never come back to this location again. The only reason I checked one star is because it wouldn't allow me to hit submit without a star being checked, other wise I wouldn't have checked any stars. The service and food was just that bad.

We came for lunch on Mother's Day. The restaurant was packed and noisy (to be expected), but the service was extremely slow. There was a prix fixe menu and the food was pretty good, but the service was extremely slow. We were a party of 10, but everything was painfully slow. We even had to wait an extraordinally long time to get the cake (that we brought the restaurant) brought to the table. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed or what, but I would avoid going there on any special occasion. Otherwise, the food and value is good.
Mothers day brunch
The food was not that great for the price. Some dishes were good, some were not. The chicken for example was bland, a total disappointment, but the chilean bass was great.
Long Wait for Check and even Food
I stayed in this restaurant for nearly two hours. I was in a party of an overall 3. Food was good and fresh, yes. Atmosphere is casual, sophisticated. Our waiter was all over the place. It should not take over 30 minutes to get the check and process payment--there is totally no excuse for that.

The food here is great and yet homey at the same time. Although the place was crowded with celebrating graduates, we were able to carry on a good conversation with our friends. However, those half-booths got in our way somewhat for hearing each person (one can't face three people at the same time). Also, I wish you had a different garage; so difficult to find one's car in the present one!
Fantastic as always...wonderful food, GREAT servic
Always go there for my birthday as it has become my favorite restaurant! It's also a great place to drop into for a nicely pampered lunch!
Amazing, consistent service
I dined at Maggiano's for one of my graduation dinners with family we had a party of 9 so Family Style dining was suggested. Not once did we have to ask for another entree to be brought out, our plates and cups were never empty, Will & Drew were both amazing waiters for the table. I'd dined here plenty of times before, just not with such large of a party but I expected nothing less than great service which is what we got. We order a chopped salad and the sausage and peppers for an app (that sausage & peppers is my absolute favorite I order it every time) then shrimp scampi, chicken Parmesan, herb crusted tilapia, and the spaghetti & meatballs. For dessert there was cheesecake ( which I wasn't the fondest of) and brownies (which I did not try). I definitely recommend Maggiano's for any occasion!

My son and his four friends went to Maggiano's to celebrate Prom and he stated that it was a fantastic experience. Though the weather was dreary, the staff (starting from valet to busboy) were great. He stated that service was impeccable and all the food dishes came out deliciously perfect for everyone. He really enjoyed the price point, as dining out with his date was very reasonable and they are planning another outing as they all prepare for graduation! 😊

Our waiter was very nice- the Hawaiian guy who is actually from Argentina. The food was good, but not all my guests were completely satisfied with everything. The ambience was good. Great for birthday celebrations. The manager at that location does not seem like he knew what he was taking about when some of my guests had questions.

food was subpar...had srimp scampi and house salad. very undewhelmed.
What an enjoyable time!
This was my second time coming to Maggiano's and it was nice. The atmosphere is great and very relaxing. The food was wonderful and the service was great. I would recommend this restaurant.
Are the portions smaller?
Maggiano's is always great - though this time (it's been over a year since my last visit) I could swear the portions are smaller!! The cheesecake is always a huge portion and a huge hit See you soon - thank you
The sodium content is dangerously high.
Prior to visiting the restaurant, I examined the sodium and caloric content of all menu items. Almost all had a failing grade, showing dangerously high sodium and fat content. I had to settle for a side of grilled veggies as my meal. Pathetic, given what we know today about the dangers of excessive salt and fat. I'll never return and I encourage others to dine elsewhere for the sake of their health.

Consistently good food, served in generous portion, ample for sharing.
Excellence is the word!!
My father had an amazing meal with dynamite service.
The food and atmosphere are comfortable and familiar. The chef came out to address our gluten free needs. The waiter was very attentive. Large groups can be loud. A bit expensive for the quality of the food, but atmosphere and variety make up for it.
Overall, experience was good. Waiter was attentive. Sending a birthday treat for my daughter, who turned 18 that day, was a very nice touch.
