Some menu items changed. The fettuccine Alfredo was very disappointing. Wish it was never changed. No asparagus or chicken, noodles were different, and sauce was not as good. Was there for a bday dinner. But very disappointed.

Maggianos family style isn’t the same as it used to be. For one, you used to get to pick 2 salads, 2 appetizers This no longer applies. We ordered the Rigatoni D which was amazing but they didn’t bring out enough at first. 1 large bowl wasn’t enough for 10 people who love it. We kept requesting more food but it took a long time to come out. The salmon was dry. Dessert was good but we weren’t offered coffee ☕️ or after dinner drinks. Our waitress was outstanding. It was hard to hold conversation because it was loud.

This was a birthday celebration for my brother in law and the first time going to Maggiano’s. All of us throughly enjoyed the dinner and it was much more than we could possibly eat in one sitting. The sever, Jack, was especially helpful in selecting the menu items. Will definitely return!!

The food was GREAT! We had a large group of 14 so we had the family style menu which we selected in advance. We had two servers which was perfect! They had our order correct and the food came out in record time! I will make sure I come back when I have another large group.

Even with a reservation we had to wait 30 minutes for our table. I know that one cannot predict table turn, but it seems EVERYONE had made reservations. If not, then our "reservation" meant nothing and we had to wait as though we had not reserved.

The food was great. Service was a little slow, and server said some unnecessary comments (we have a nut allergy in our group, and server made a big deal about the hassle of it and the need to bring the chef out and everything, which never happened)

There were two of us at this visit to Maggiano's and we were seated quickly and the waitstaff was attentive and helpful. We ordered from the "Today and Tomorrow Pasta" section of the menu, and this is a great value. We ordered the "Famous Rigatoni D" and "Eggplant Parmesan" and after the order had been in, the waiter came and told us he dropped the tray and had to re-enter our order to the chef. I thanked him for his honesty. The eggplant was perfect when it came but the rigatoni dish was terrible. The Marsala cream sauce was watery and we ended up taking the uneaten portion home in the hopes it could be reheated and the sauce "doctored up". No such luck...the leftover portion ended up being thrown away. This is the first time I've ever had anything under par from Maggiano's. The "tomorrow" pastas, a "Four-Cheese Ravioli" and a "Mom's Lasagna" were excellent and were heated per the instructions. I will absolutely come to Maggiano's again, but not for the rigatoni!

I always love Maggiano's, and especially their "buy one, take one" deals. On this particular occasion, a friend and I had made a reservation for 6:30, as we had a 8:00 movie in the same mall. I arrived at 6:15 to a packed house, had to push my way to the reception desk, and let them know I was there. There was a literal throng around the entrance, very tight and a lot of people getting very angry because they had to wait (but who also didn't make a reservation). It was just after 7:00 before we were seated, despite our 6:30 reservation. While this was an irritation, it also goes to show how popular they are.

Once we were seated, our server took our order quickly, brought our drinks, and we were out and to our movie with 5 minutes left. The food is always good, the service is always friendly. But I do think they need to better manage their reservations. And if people come in without reservations, they need to be told a realistic wait time, which can be quite a while, as people with reservations should be seated first.

MAKE A RESERVATION! Waited for a table for almost an hour before the hostess said that they take reservations before people on stand by. Never suggested to make a reservation. I then made a reservation on my phone as we stood in the waiting area. Finally got a table after an hour and a half. Manager did offer a piece of zucchini while waiting. Food was good and service from there was good.

We arrived 10 minutes early to find the place crowded and we had to wait even with the reservation. after 10 more minutes asked how much longer. Was told they were working on their 6 o"clock reservations, taking them as people checked in so we had to wait till 6:30 to be seated, makes you question "Why make a reservation if they over book. The meal was good, service slow but because of the crowd it made sense. Just disappointed in how they run their seating.

Maggiano's is a great place to dine. We usually go during the week but went on a Saturday this last time. It was super crowded and noisy, but we didn't have to wait for a table because we had a reservation. I would recommend going during the week though as I am not a fan of crowds. Their food is outstanding and you can't beat their buy one, get one free menu. I tell all of my friends to try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed!
