Celebration of the completion of a difficult business transaction so this was the spot for a casual but nice dinner. Danielle our server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive so ask for her by name.

One person in our party has a severe gluten allergy. Chef came to table personally and crafted a custom gluten free meal. Food was excellent. Waitress was aware of gluten allergy can warned which foods to avoid etc. All around excellent, professional service.

We went on a Saturday night and the place was hopping busy. So much so that the Hostesses were clearing tables. Several large groups in area we sat so it was hard for servers to move around.
They easily could have used more help! Food was good and the Buy 1 Get 1 entrée was nice

The only drawback is that it is always very noisy so any more than 2 couples together would have a hard time having a conversation.
All else is great!!

Without a doubt we probably had the best server we have ever had at any restaurant. That is saying a lot since we eat out a lot. McKenzie was friendly, knowledgeable, and all with an attitude of "I want you to enjoy your visit." By the way, the food was good too.

Love Maggianos and the food was perfect as always. Maggianos salad is THE BEST!! Would drive miles for that!! Veal Parmigiana is delicious as always and really you can’t get a bad meal here. Period!!

Service is normally top notch. Not so much this time. Felt like we were basically ignored. Our drinks were not refilled until we asked after they’d been empty awhile and we didn’t get bread until our salad was already there when we told our waitress that we were seeing bread come out to other tables. Understand they sometimes have to make a new batch, but when you know your table’s been here awhile you should be on top of that and I shouldn’t have to tell you when the bread is ready.

That was an anomaly as normally our service is excellent at the Columbia Maggianos, but we are going to be sure not to get her again. If we’re seated in her section we’ll be asking to move.

This was our 4th New Year's Eve dining experience. The hostess was very friendly. The restaurant nicely decorated for Christmas. Our server, Susan, was very good (knows the menu, what to recommend, gave her favorites). My husband and I always get the Marco's for Two (great value for our money)! I will recommend this restaurant to my friends!!!

Went on New Year’s Eve to celebrate the holiday and our wedding anniversary. The place was packed and a bit noisy but that can be excused due to the circumstances. We had reservations and were seated almost immediately even with a full waiting room. The server was great and the seating comfortable. It was very pretty due to holiday decorations. I got meatballs as an appetizer which is kinda out of the normal fare. But if you’ve ever had them, they are so good, I couldn’t leave without eating a couple. Anyhow, my wife got ravioli and I got scallops over risotto. Both were absolutely delicious. Presentation was perfect and large portions. We were gifted anniversary cheesecake which was also great! Overall, a really positive experience.

Somewhat limited vegetarian options. We were seated a bit later than our reservation. Non vegetarian food was super good and desserts were large enough to share.

Why does every restaurant (including this one) insist on trying to seat the worst tables in the house when other tables are available and what is it about my wife and I that make this practice an almost universal occurrence. The first table was a booth squeezed in behind a large and loud party of 8 or 10 people. Asking not to be seated there, we were taken to the Kitchen table booth. You know the one. Right next to the kitchen door that slams open with every passage, drawing attention to the numerous working and hanging out members of the staff just inside the door. That's the table they tried to seat twice more and finally on the third try the people stayed. Asking to move again,we were seated at a nice table in the center of the room (one of three that were empty). Things did get a bit better after the drinks were slow in coming and rather expensive and the kitchen ran out of bread. The shared appetizer (spinach and artichoke dip) and the entrees (shrimp fra diavolo and chicken francese) were quite good. The waiter was informative and gracious. It was just unfortunate that an evening out that was to be something special had to start out on such a note.

The manager was outstanding. There was an issue with two of my friends food. The manger was called and promptly resolved the issue and invited us to return next month for a special promotion. We will return in January. The manager also gave each of us a sample of one of one of their delicious desserts.

We have been here several times and everything was very good but not outstanding - except maybe the wait staff. One person was served his chicken and the server said the vesuvius potatos were not quite ready but would be out soon - but it took over 20 minutes after a reminder to the staff - NOT good. The menu was abbreviated - NO pasta dishes were listed and NO get one now, take one home were on our menu. Our waitress was nice, pleasant, accomodating, friendly, helpful, and competent. I will go again but I would like the experience to be outstanding next time.
