We absolutely love the food at Maggiano's. It's always flavorful, generous portions, fresh and hot! My husband and I typically share a meal, with a salad and either an appetizer or dessert. We never go home hungry but we always go home with another on the house pasta dish! Staff is always very friendly and service is perfect. The pace of the meal is excellent and we never feel rushed. That is what keeps us coming back to Maggiano's of Vernon Hills!
The cheese ravioli was delicious and my husband's lasagna was also good. We frequent here quite often in our neighborhood and I must say since they opened at Hawthorn Mall the food and service is getting better. Its a great value with their special "take one dish home"
I love this restaurant but this time cutlery were disgusting.
We have been to Maggiano’s many times. We are never disappointed. Good food. Good service. Good value.
It was a good experience. The only thing I would complain about is the waiter bumped my daughters knife on her plate causing her ravioli to fall on the table and didn't offer to replace them. Otherwise everything was good
My overall experience was great. The crab cakes I had were very salty. Overall a great experience. I was seated right at 8pm. It was great.
Good service good food enjoyable evening
My husband and I went here for the first time for our wedding anniversary and it was wonderful. The waitress we had was great and very friendly. It was awesome that we got to meet the chef and she was really nice and the food was amazing. We loved it for it being our first time!!
I ordered asparagus with my chicken and asked that it be soft but it still came out hard.
It was very busy Friday.
Calamari can out instantly after ordering. We kept getting pestered to order as soon as the app came, then we do and the salmon Oscar takes 30 minutes and it's cold.
Good food, and the prices are good especially if you choose the take a meal home option.
We love Maggiano's. The food is wonderful and you get a large serving. If you order one of the classic pasta's you can get a frozen order to take home. It's a great deal.
I’ve been to Maggiano’s on several occasions and enjoyed the experience. The last trip was the worst by far. The service was extremely poor with long periods of neglect by the wait staff. After one such period when we were waiting for bread rolls, he brought us a basket of obviously overdone and inedible rolls. After a while when we saw him again and asked for fresh rolls, he commented that they had looked overdone!! Then why serve it? The overall experience was not on par and led us to believe that there was a change of management.
I wasn't very impressed with my meal, there wasn't much to it. I feel as if I could have made it at home. I ordered the red sauce that is somewhat spicy, with Italian sausage over rigatoni. I thought the sauce would be more flavorful.
Food is delicious! We loved getting the Marcos for Two, salads, entree, dessert and two entrees to go home with! I had the mushroom ravioli and it was SO good. My husband loved the vegetable penne. We had a reservation for 9 at 6:30 on a Saturday night and got right in. They had gluten free pasta which one of friends said was really good. Would recommend this!
Wouldn’t go back. Can get the same food quality and service at the Olive Garden. Had a 6:30 reservation and still had to wait almost a half hour to be seated. Too many large groups with kids—messy atmosphere and our waiter, while nice, was very rushed. Also had dirty silverware and cheese shaker on the table. Mediocre at best overall and not worth the money—even with the take away dinners that come with the meal.
Our experience was 5 Star! We were seated immediately. We had the most amazing waiters , they were courteous, extremely attentive and deserved every penny of their tip.
Good food, service. Please dining experience. Thank you
We've been here many times and it was always good.
This time we had bad service, wrong food brought to the table, a drink ordered at the time food was delivered and brought the the table after the entire meal was completed. The manager compt the bill because it was all bad.
I thought it was overpriced and not too good
Made a reservation and got to sit right away. Got a booth as we wanted. The service was great and the food was wonderful as usual.
Great service. I asked to replace my pasta with grilled veggies. They did with no problem.
Service was great and the waiter I had a few weeks ago even came over to talk with me. He’s a gem.
One dish came warm, not hot. It was quickly replaced with a nice hot meal!!
Went here last Sunday for dinner. Made reservation to be safe. Was seated and n a requested booth. Our server Jessica was Outstanding! Very friendly, attended to us without being obstrusive. Will ask for her next time we come here.
Great food, fair prices. LOVE this place!!
We frequently dine here. Usually, it is a great experience, from the service through the food. This time was pretty disappointing. We had requested a booth away from the noisy places. Instead we were taken to a table alongside a busy walkway. When we mentioned that we had requested a quiet booth, we were seated at the one next to the restroom entrance.
This was followed by a less than attentive server, in several respects. One in particular:
My wife ordered the chopped salad with spinach instead of lettuce. She frequently orders this dish. When we were served, the spinach was whole, not chopped. Mentioning this to our server, he kind of shrugged and gave an explanation as maybe why this happened. He did not attempt to correct this.
This was most disappointing, as we have dined here many times, and the server is usually top notch.
Excellent experience. Good Food. Great service. Would definitely recommend to my family and friends.
We celebrated my husband ‘s birthday and had a wonderful time. The food and the service were outstanding!
We were celebrating a birthday and we were seated on time, the food was delicious and the wait staff was prompt and courteous.
Better than expected
I was surprised by how crowded the place was at 4:30 on a Saturday. We had reservations and were shown two terrible tables, next to the bathroom and 4 feet from the waiters station. We refused these tables and were told the open tables were for parties. I could see this if we didn’t have reservations, we finally settled for a table near the door.
We waited a bit longer for service, especially getting our dessert and the bill. Then we got to the car and I realized I didn’t get out “take home” pasta gifts. I went back in and the hostess seemed irritated, but did go get the bags right away. But no “ sorry for the inconvenience “
The food was good, but a bit cold when it came. I was disappointed, Maggianos is a go to for our family, this was our first time at Vernon Hills, probably won’t go back.
We were a group of six with a reservation for Saturday brunch, Our waitress was attentive and made adjustments for fixed menu options. There were few diners at 10:30 and they turned down the music so that we could converse. The yogurt granola, Italian breakfast and mimosas were very good. Two of us ordered creme brule ricotta stuffed french on my recommendation. It was dry and burned on the edges. There were actual black charred pieces coming off the edges and despite trying to eat the middle, it was impossible to find any with out the burnt taste. I could not tell it was stuffed. I would have sent it back had I not had to go to an appointment and leave before the other diners. I had this entree recently and loved it. I told friends how lovely the brunch was and I made the reservation. The other meals were good. This was not up to Maggiono's standards.
Had to wait a while for a table even though we had a reservation, and then when we were seated, it was at a table that was adjacent to the waiting area and mall entrance, so it was a bit noisy with lots of people passing by the table.
Today will be one of the greatest memories I will have in my heart for the rest of my life, seeing my Mother so happy and content and feeling a true "Queen of the day" for her 96th birthday honored by everyone at Maggiano's. Not only was the food incredible, each course was uniquely displayed with attention to detail. Our Server as well as all of the Employees of the Restaurant showed care and concern over everything. Especially Octavio Abrego a Supervisor, delivered a wooden tray with Happy Birthday, candles and dessert that was such a celebration. Our meal lasted almost two hours for three people and was clearly the best service, best food, best ambiance and one of the greatest celebrations I have had, especially on Thursday afternoon.
We had a lovely time. The food was great and the staff awesome. We will be coming back!
Service and staff was very attentive, but couldn’t make up for the lack of quality in food, sauces, and cold temperature presentation. They remade the cold veggies and those were better the second time, and of course the brownie sundae with fresh strawberries was delish!
The 4 cheese ravioli and the braised beef with pasta were delicious.
Great service, great food!
The waiter was outstanding. His first question to us was if we had allergies - which my husband does. He sent the chef to talk to us to make sure everything would be perfect and it was. My husband had planned to order the veal but had to change his order because it is placed in a fryer with chicken and he's allergic to chicken so that was good to know. My biggest issue was even with reservations, we had to wait to get seated. It was too bad of a wait - probably 10 minutes.
