Maggiano's - Chevy Chase Ratings and Reviews

We went to Maggiano's for my 24th birthday and while the food was magnificent, our service was quite the contrary. It took around 40 minutes for our food to be brought to the table and once we received our dinner we didn't see our waiter again until we were ready for our checks. We explained to him that we had been waiting for refills and he responded by saying "he was busy running around". We asked for our checks and didn't get them until about 25 minutes later. At that point we asked to speak to a manager, who very politely gave an us an adjustment for our poor service. Because of that, and the fact that our food was so awesome I will give this location another try but I expect more from Maggiano's!

Decided to book maggianos for a homecoming dinner. While making he reservation was very easy, the experience was not. When we got there, we were told we have to wait for our entire group, okay that's fine, but once everyone was there , our table was still not set up and our reservation was for 7:45 and we all arrived at 7:45, yet we did not sit until 8pm. Instead of waiting in the lobby, we were told to wait in the entrance of the restaurant blocking everyone. Once we were sat , appetizers and entrees came out pretty fast and that was nice. When it came to dessert, we sat for an extra 30 mins waiting when everything else took ten. Considering everything else was pretty fast, this was a huge disappointment especially when we had a pre set family style menu. When the check came, we were NOT informed by our server, Barbara, or any front desk staff who took the reservation that we could not leave less then 18% and that it was NOT in the bill. We also had called multiple times before hand and still was not told this even when we asked about paying. This was very confusing for the group because we had priced it as each person would give 20% for their family style meal individually and yet when we received the bill, we were short 60$ even for an 18% tip. With this, huge shortage, it could not have been MD state tax, but something else completely. When asked if we could do 15%, we were told no and that we must do 18% or more. Having been to other restaurants and even working in one, this really upset me because we should have been told about this beforehand and it should have been in our bill, not a required recommendation. Another disappointing thing was that there were no split checks, which would have been useful in a situation such as this. The food was okay, but definitely not worth the $660 we paid including tip. After this, I could not say I would recommend this for a group or to be back here again. Overall very didsapointing experience.

We have always enjoyed our "family style" dining experiences at this Maggiano's in the past, but our most recent one was rather unpleasant. It began with their inability or unwillingness to provide a booth, despite my having requested one a month in advance. Then, there was a 10-minute wait to be seated, due to the most inefficient management of waiting parties that I had even seen there.
We were seated among the crowded tables in the middle of the dining area, and thus were forced to endure a cold breeze that almost continuously swept the room. This was largely due to the extremely windy day, but it was a big part of why our experience was not enjoyable.
Then we met our server, who began with a line about "let's get drunk" which seemed very inappropriate for an establishment like Maggiano's. We had to wait 15 minutes for the wine list; and ask for butter on 3 separate occasions. Also, though we were not in a hurry, the pace of the delivery of courses was much slower than normal which, as we shivered in the cold, contributed to the overall unpleasantness of the evening. We are unlikely to make a return visit to that location.

Maggiano's always has consistently excellent food. Waiter even offered an excellent chicken entree that was not on the menu. Service was impeccable. Also, had an excellent toss salad and apple costada dessert. My wife and I had a nice booth like table for two.

This was our first time and it was great. The waiter was very attentive and friendly; the food was excellent and the Marco Special (I think) is an awesome value. We sat in the bar area Sunday around dinner time and it was pretty quiet. Chris

Second time visiting this restaurant and it was worth the trip. Sous Chef made a special trip to our table since our daughter has food allergies...totally unexpected and most definitely appreciated. This restaurant is a winner!!

We have eaten at this location numerous times. Tonight was probably the worst experience we've had there. The food did not come out in a timely manner. The food was cold, and when we went to pay, the waiter disappeared. The restaurant was exceptionally cold. When we we discuss this with the management they offered us free desserts but only waived one.

Rustic Italian decor and delicious home-made pasta. The aroma on entering the restaurant is intoxicating. We had a large (8) group, and the service was friendly and attentive. I know that Maggiano's is a chain (I've been to their restaurants in Boston and Philadelphia) but you don't get the feeling that it's "cookie cutter". I've been to fancier Italian restaurants, but none that gives such good value.

This place is awesome. The food is great the service is awesome and the resturant is scene is the best ever I truly enjoyed myself thee our waiter Godfrey was awesome and the manager I believe his name was Mark or Mike but he was great also.

Our dinner for 7 (5 adults; 2 kids) included seafood entrees, a bottle of wine, plus several individual cocktails. The bill was only about $200 (before tax). Awesome value! Great-tasting food too. My only gripe would be the server(s)/ bussers. They meant well but mixed up our orders and took a while to return with requested items (parm, take-out containers, itemized bill).

I loved the Tuscan mussels appetizer. It was healthy and a very generous portion. I ordered a side salad, but probably did not have to, as the mussels were enough for a whole meal. I'm going to come often for this treat.

Very disappointed. I have been here a few times for different occasions but this has been the worst. It was a couples night out with a group of 10. Our reservation was at 8:30pm and we didn't get out of there until 11:30ish. When we arrived a waiter came to our table to introduce himself when a manager I guess tells him he isn't the server but someone else is. The next server comes over and takes our drink order.
The first set of alcoholic drink were terrible. The Long Island tasted like ice tea the mojito tasted like sparkling water with a ton of mint and the old fashion was water down (the only one sent back) since the other couples didn't want to argue about it. The first course came out which was fine but as we moved from one to another our table would get cleared, new silverware and plate but no food. It took more then 30 minutes for the food to come out after our table was cleared.
Once dessert came that was finally the breaking point. The double chocolate brownie was honestly a disappointment. They were flat and honestly looked like if they were from Cici pizza.
Once one of the couples complain to the manager, he apologized and stated to take 15% off the whole tab (spilt 4 ways) only 2 tabs were actually discounted the 15%. The other 2 (mine and another couple) paid the full amount without the discount. At this point I just didn't care and wanted to leave.
I am embarrassed with the experience after talking how great it has been every time I've been there. I honestly don't think I will return. The hospitality just lacked. I give them a 1.5 star.

we used to visit this place every few months. in this last visit we found that they had changed their family style offer in the menu. we do not recommend it at all. it was much better before. now it is too pricey and it feels that you need to push them to take care of you. the service was not that great also. since the moment we stepped in and set in our table you could feel that they want you to order and to get on with the table...
beside the very nice internal design of the place nothing left to give you that good taste that was left all the other occasions we had visited this restaurant...
we will find another location to eat in that area

We have eaten at Maggiano's in Chevy Chase MD many times, and have always had a wonderful meal. The service truly is outstanding and the food as well. This time had an apple crostada for dessert that was incredible! My friend had the double fudge brownie with strawberries. So delicious!

We had dinner for 8 people as a business dinner and the food was awesome. We had the best service from your wait staff. The only thing we did not like was the music was a little loud so I think next tie we will try and see if there is an available room upstairs
