Don't Say I Didn't Tell You So – 1st impression: Beautiful restaurant but it stops there. It seems to me like the astetics of the place is suppose to make up for the food....stick with Olive Garden, not only is it Americanized Italian like Maggiano's but at least it tastes alot better. Water and wine glasses decorated the table, ALL were covered with a film and finger prints, even had lip stick marks on some. Silverware unpolished. Bread brought to the table stale and luke warn at best. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan, my fiancee ordered the Lasagna and the kids Spagetti with MeatBalls. About 20 minutes after I ordered my dinner the server came to inform me that they are out of Eggplant, yippee, luckily I had some "just ok" Calamari and a good side salad so I was content, I didn't order anything else. The Lasagna my fiancee ordered was not so good at all, he said he could get a better Lasagna at UNO's. The kids spagetti w/ Meat Balls, well they spagetti, they didn't like the Meat Balls at all. And be careful because my son ordered the Peach flavored ice tea and cost almost $7.00. Over all service again semi ok, Heidi was her name, she was working with another young man who's name I didn't catch, but refills on the drinks were delayed, they didn't work well in sync, neither knew what the other had done. I would not reccomend this place by any means and I will not be back. But if you're looking for mediocre American-Italian with ala carte everything and high prices and unpolished dinner/glass ware this is the place you want to go!
Not Very Good – We walked in and were greeted quickly. We asked for a booth and they automatically assumed we wouldn't mind be seated in the bar area. My husband and I were looking for a little quieter atmosphere. Our waitress was very pleasant. My food was for lack of a better term "nasty." I've eaten much better food at Carraba's or Olive Garden. Maggiano's was also overpriced for the product. I suggest spend the extra five dollars a meal and go to Tommy Bahamas or better yet go have a cheap good quesadilla at Adobe Gilas. I suggest the Pork.
The very best italian restaurant – My first time here and what an experience. I expected the prices to be very expensive, because the resturant from the outside looked high class. Even the wait for dinner was only but 2-3 minutes. Our waiter was Robert, he took care of us and helped us decided what to order, and the prices were very reasonable. I ordered half an order and that still was too much for me. The atmosphere was very settling and just perfect. So no compliants from me. Will diffently go there again and bring my family this time since i was here for a seminar.
Best Italian chain – Excellent food and a beautiful restaurant. Have been to many Maggiano's in other cities and always had a great experience. The dishes are large but you can request a half order - I never do though. It is great to have leftovers.
The fix price menu (served family style) is outstanding but it is a LOT of food.
The only problem is that the entrees are so good it is next to impossible to save room for dessert, which are also fantastic.
All around, the best chain restaurant I can think of. (And I tend to avoid all chain restaurants).
Hearty Italian fare served family style keeps patrons coming back for the food as much as the ambiance. – In Short
Fresh white linen tablecloths set the mood for classic southern Italian dining here. Start off with favorites like the delightfully crispy mozzarella marinara sticks or calamari fritte. Entrees can be ordered off the regular or family style menu. Keep the lobster ravioli to yourself and pass the chicken marsala to your antsy cousin. Leave a bittersweet taste in your mouth with a nice hunk of tiramisu or after dinner coffee.
Will NEVER eat there again!!! – They deserve NO stars! For my mom's 50th birthday, we rented a limo and came here. There were 20 of us in our party and instead of putting us in a separate room, they put us right in the middle of the dining room. My mom is naturally a loud person, but they said we were too loud and told us they were cutting us off (from drinks). We decided that if they didn't want to serve us, they didn't need our business. When we were on our way out, they gave us a $650 bill (for some salad and drinks). We got the bill down to $100 and thats what we paid. The assistant manager was very rude, and on my way out, she called me a b****! Now, I did call her one first, but I'm the customer, and you just CANNOT say that to a customer. (And when we were first booking the dinner, they said it would be $15/person, then they bumped it up to $26/person including gratutity, then they said they were going to at 18% on top of that, and then the general manager hung up on me when I was fighting the extra gratutity). Overall, this was the worst experience I've ever had. They lost out on a $1000 bill. Their loss. They handled the situation very badly. (We went to another restaurant and had no problem there.) Will never eat there again!
