Maggiano's - Willow Bend Ratings and Reviews
Could have been more attentive

The food is mediocre and over priced for the quality. Service was horrible. Had to ask multiple times for various things. We ordered two salads. One came out and the other one we had to ask for again and by the time the server brought it, the food had arrived. The server asked if we wanted balsamic in our oil for the bread we had to ask for, then never brought it. My sons meal came with ice cream and we had to ask twice for her to bring that as well. This went on all night. I could have gotten past that if the food was spectacular but we were extremely disappointed. We will not recommend or return.

Maggianos has become my go to for date night. The service was fast, convenient and delicious. The price was very reasonable and the casual dress code was fitting for our occasion. Thanks Maggianos!!!

Everything!!! For starters the service & I mean every single person that we cane in contact with. The Executive Chef even visited our table and brought complimentary fried artichokes and said she heard it was our 1st time there. then the food was amazing! The STRAWBERRY cheescake Ohmygoodness! Just get in your car and go like now! :)
Reserving a table is a mute point if when you get there you'll just be given a buzzer and have to wait like everyone else who did not have reservations.

Our reservation was rather a disappointment. 1) As the reservation was ordered through the page with the $10 discount, that information was not transferred to our bill. Correcting took quite a long time. 2) our seating was back at the dinnerware/water area so was brisk with people. Server did not seem too interested in us based on our order. The chicken tasted like it had been frozen a long timel.

We had a lovely evening. We were seated at a great private table and had a very good waiter, the food was wonderful and plentiful . We were 2 families from all over the country and we all found something to love. Thank you! we are going to keep Maggione's on the Special Event list.

The service was excellent. I was so impressed with the attention they provided. Seems everyone, from Asst. General Manager, to Lead server to my personal server knew about our order. The food is always delicious and prices are reasonable. One of my favorite places.

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. The food is delicious, the service great, and the value tops. If you get one of the pastas on their list you get a free one to take home. This is a nice feature of eating here and it makes it a value meal.
Great tasting food in abundance in a warm, friendly environment, with prompt, attentive service. We will return on our next special occasion.

Overall experience was good. I have been eating at Maggiano's once or twice a month for the past 10 years. The portions of the food have significantly come down. The taste is excellent.
Over priced for level of service and atmosphere
When spending almost $200 on a meal for a family of 5 (family so the $200 is food and no drinks) I do not expect to see someone at next table in a tee shirt, flip flops and jean shorts. For the pricing they need to enforce a dress code. Also server training is needed. One of the several short falls was that my soup bowl sat on the table until after dessert.
Great authentic Italian food.
We always use Magliano's for special get-to-gethers and this occasion was for Mother's Day. The place was overly busy but big enough that you do not feel crammed into the place. The servers were busy but efficient and always took the time to answer questions or offer advice. We are Italian so we appreciate authentic Italian food and that is what you get here.
The food and service was amazing. I highly recommend this place.
Doesn't get better than this
Fantastic menu and fantastic food. Where else can you go to get predictable great food and predictable great service in a nice setting. My only regret was our decision to split the berry tiramisu desert. In hindsight I wish I had ordered one just for me.
Everything was great as usual.
Wonderful place for special occasion, such as Mother's Day lunch. Great service, great food, and atmosphere. Only downside was they gave us the wrong carry out order.
The meals we ordered were good, hot and served in a reasonable amount of time. My one complaint was that I had ordered two meals to go and did not get them. I wasn't charged for them, and didn't want to wait to reorder after my bill was brought to me since it was very busy at the restaurant.
Mother's Day Weekend dinner
Enjoyed another fine meal at Maggiano's on the Saturday night before Mother's Day. Our server was energetic, attentive and spot-on. The food portions are just huge, but made of plenty of leftovers on Sunday. Plus, sent home with an extra meal. The zucchini is the best! And the Maggiano's salad is always a pleaser. Was stuffed by the time dinner was served, however. Maggiano's never fails - it's a great experience whether it's a special occasion or just any Friday night.

The food and service was excellent. It was a bit noisy for a romantic date.
Great waiter, he was very attentive, kept drinks filled, made good dinner suggestions, friendly.
Great birthday celebration
We came to celebrate my moms 50th bday and we had a great time. Our server was fantastic and the food was great! She brought out a little birthday dessert with a candle and she really enjoyed it.
Server was extremely slow. Took 10 min just to get water. Will not go back.
Excellent food and service, but...
Had an early Mother's Day dinner there. Service was impeccable as usual. Several menu items disappeared. Fewer selections on the family style menu. The biggest issue I had was the change of the way the salmon was cooked. It was my favorite, and why we've dined there for years. It wasn't near as good and cut into tiny squares. Unfortunately we probably won't be back because of that. I'm not paying $250 for 5 people (no alcohol) and not getting an entrée I love. The stuffed mushrooms and creme brule were great.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. A good place to unwind on Friday, especially in the bar, or the dining room opposite.
Excellent Customer Service!
We were blown away by the team at Maggianos Willowbend! We felt very welcomes and was taken great care of even though there was a great amount of people there. The Chefs are awesome. Will definitely be seeing us again soon!
The food and service were fantastic. Very quick to come out with food as well as continued refills on drinks. Not super Child friendly, we had our 11 month old. We went for our anniversary and they went above and beyond. They even made a special dessert!
We took our boss here for her birthday lunch and they made her feel extra special. We had a great time. Our table was ready and we were seated almost immediately. The restaurant was beautiful, the food was delicious and the prices were very decent. Our waiter was the best. there were 11 in our party and he was on point not one mix up whatsoever. We all had a great time. and will be returning soon.

Friendly atmosphere and wonderfully delicious food!
Server was a little overwhelmed. Pasta dishes are a little bland. But n the whole a good ambiance and good value.
Good food, good service
We had a good meal with no problem getting a table that we requested. Food tasted good, and of course, the bread was great. We did, however have two problems which were resolved, but should never have happened. First, my wine glass had lipstick on it, not mine. Second, the wrong kind of soup was brought to one of us. All was fixed, but I think could have been avoided with a little more diligence.
Good Food, Great Service (Friendly Staff), Good Prices.
Good Food, bad service
I have to start with I love Maggiano"s!!! However, the service this time was less than stellar. The area we were in was not busy. There were two waiters. The female was on top of things, however our waiter, the male, was not. When he would finally stop by our table to check on us, he would as if we needed anything. If we said yes, he would leave and never come back, we would have to stop him while he was visiting another table and ask for what was supposed to have already been delivered to us. I know when only 1 person in a party of 2 is drinking, some waiters believe that the tip will not be as good. However, I tip on service. Even when service is not always as good, I usually tip very well (especially if a waiter is very busy). However, this time I had a hard time tipping well. Seeing other tables get very good service and receiving what they had asked for was unsettling for me.

The food was wonderful. Our server was very nice and warm. We love going to Maggiano's for dinner. Never can go wrong at this place.
Love MAGGIANOS ALWAYS.
They will modify the food according to your taste! Love it so much!
Food Great, table location TERRIBLE
The food was great. Service was marginal. Luckily, all 8 of us had our iPhone flashlights to read the menu. The lighting at our table was TERRIBLE!! Maybe we should have ordered from the takeout menu to avoid the lighting. Put more lighting at that table. Disappointed MBK
This restaurant is wonderful for special occasions and even for family events. Various choices to eat and a wide range of foods and drinks, as well as impeccable service.
