I made my Valentine’s Day reservations on January 1st. Our dinner was scheduled at 8:30pm, we arrived & they claimed they were overbooked & told us there was a 3 hour wait. The hostesses were rude & I’ll never return to this place.
My lady and I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the service was exceptional and would recommend your place to anyone
It was a very lovely dining experience for Valentine's day.
Great food. Large portions for the price.
The workers sat me and some friends but then made us get up and leave because my whole party wasn’t there. We then had to wait 45 minutes and when we were finally called bad to be sat we got stuck with a table in the back right next to the kitchen door. On another note this was all on my birthday and the host and server knew that and were very rude. The food took a long time to come as well. This was one of the worst experiences of my life.
Love, love, love (how many times can I say "love"), everything about Maggiano's. Terry is a great waiter. Will be back as often as we can.
Maggiano's never disappoints. Their food is always excellent. Pasta done right, al dente, and never soggy or overcooked. I really have a thing with overcooked pasta. Lobster Carbonara is always a favorite. Not only the pastas are great, but they do their steaks very well too. Some restaurants treat their desserts as an afterthought, but all of their desserts are excellent. Everything is tasty and well done.
Our server and our food were fantastic!!!!
Great food and service
Everything was perfect. Made reservations on-line. Table ready when we arrived. Our waiter was outstanding. Food delicious. Enjoyed the surprise cookies and candle at the end for my birthday.
We will be back!
The service was amazing as well as the food and our server was very courteous and accommodating to us and I appreciate his manners and graciousness.
Always love the food at Maggianos's. What made this meal exceptional was our server, Em. She was charming, funny and very attentive.
The food at Maggiano’s is consistently good. It’s tasty and they give you enough to take some home. It’s always busy so we did wait a while to order and to get our check . Our Maggiano’s is outside of a mall and movie theater so there is a lot of traffic . I highly recommend making a reservation
I’ve been eating at Maggianos for 20+ years and as always the food was amazing.....as always when you eat at Maggianos. We had an amazing waiter (Spencer) and having a waiter with a great personality is the best.
Despite the reservation, we waited 25 minutes for a table. The service was quite slow after we were seated as well. This was our second visit and the second time we found the food to be good but not excellent. There is a lot of food for the price, but the quality was not great. For example, the meals were not very flavorful or sophisticated and the dessert was overcooked. It was not worth the wait.
We arrived with a reservation and were seated immediately with a smile, even with a very crowded lobby on a Friday night. Our server, Stephanie, was excellent. She checked on us several times. brought our drinks quickly, wrapped our leftovers as soon as we looked done, and got us a dessert menu quickly. Most places slack off once you get your meal but she kept up. The food was excellent and they have great portion sizes. We had the Chicken Marsala, Salmon Oscar, and Chicken Parmesan. We had the Gigi’s butter cake for dessert and is awesome. Highly recommend.
Right off the bat, our server, Em, couldn't have been better. She had personality and warmth but was not pushy or overattentive. My husband's stuffed shells were a bit overcooked and hard but my eggplant parm was as good as it always is! We were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary and it was a good experience.
Maggiano’s was a delightful experience! Food was great!
A good evening
Food was good and the waiter was attentive and responsive. The restaurant was crowded, so we had to wait for about 15 minutes after our reservation upon arrival.
I first ate at Maggianos in Vegas 7 years ago and have been to the Columbia one several time. Everything is always top notch. I only wish I lived closer.
Food was great, service was quick. The take home pasta meals make this a great value.
We made a reservation here because of the location. We had dined here before. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server Immediately greeted us and began our service. He took our drink order and then he took our appetizer order. He was very cordial and made good suggestions for our dinner. He brought out our drinks and made sure that everything was going as we liked. He brought out our appetizers and then our dinner items. He checked back and made sure everything was fine. We had a good dining experience and will dine here again.
Unfortunately the server failed to return my credit card and I didn’t notice. Cancelled, another replacing it. My companion received the wrong order as the pasta to take home. Not one of your better performances.
Food was good but it took some time to get it. Appetizer came quickly but not the entree
Food was very good, as always. Server was nice but not overly attentive.
Enjoyed a quiet time of day for lunch (or “linner “) with a friend.
Excellent service, excellent food, nice ambiance, very friendly place. The only downside is the noise; too loud for conversations, in part because the music is too loud.
Food good. Service mediocre, noise overwhelming and it was cold and drafty being seated near front door.
We had 9 people for a Birthday celebration. Our server seemed overwhelmed. Took 2 and 1/2 hrs to get through dinner. Not impressed.
Maggiano's is a great value with many options. Their stuffed mushroom appetizer is fantastic. We have noticed that it is always "energetic" and packed in tight on the floor. If you can get a raised booth, you can have a more private conversation without shouting across the table. The noise level on the floor can make it difficult to hear your waiter. The food is always very good and the value of the take home meals cannot be beat.
Celebrated my birthday with dinner here. Three out of four meals were thoroughly enjoyed. The eggplant Parmesan was not liked by my mother. Three of our dinners came with the take-a-meal-home option which was great. Our server, Darius, was fantastic! The only noise issue came from a very loud table near us but there’s nothing you can do about that.
My mom and I had such a great time at Maggiano's. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking
for some good Italian food.
Brunch was quite good today, I had the Ricotta Pancakes with the whiskey version of the Bloody Mary. My girlfriend had Eggs Benedict with the crab cake with a Mimosa. This was a nice change of pace from the 2 previous dinners. Our waiter D'Arcy did an excellent job taking care of us also.
I’ve been to maggianos a handful of times and each time I was disappointed. For my nephews birthday, this was his choice. Service was slow and poor despite the restaurant not being very busy. Food arrived and the pesto dish I received was very translucent in color as if much pesto wasn’t actually used. The sauce was very sweet and the chicken was bland. Another chicken dish for our table - bland, a shrimp pasta dish - the shrimp were way over cooked and rubbery. The server swapped out the shrimp dish without an issue but it was late in the evening and the rest of the table was just ready to leave. $80 on dinner that was mediocre at best. Idk what type of pesto sauce maggianos makes but I was afraid it would make me sick If I continued to eat it. It’s sad that this prime location cant get it right.
Food is always good and hot. In addition, the staff provides a great experience every time.
Excellent food, service and ambiance.
Love Maggiano. I know it was New Years Eve, but this is the second time in a row that we were seated in the only awkwardly elevated table directly next to the bar - what seems to be the "overflow" table. This always makes you feel like your eating at the little kids table during the holidays. There were booths and normal tables available. This knocks the experience down for me.
The extra to go pasta choice is a great customer take away. Only downside is the portions use to be very large now they are average but overall food still good.
