    I arrived a little late to my reservation, so Leila and Amanda, escorted my guest to our booth. They made sure that my guest was comfortable. Chase once again was our waiter and bartender. He gave us enough time to look over the menu after bringing over our bread and olive oil and balsamic vinegarette dip. We ordered and all threw of the employees came over to make sure that we were good with our meal. Chase kept coming over to the table to ensure that our drinks were kept full. Once again, I had a GREAT lunch meeting thanks to everyone here. Thank you

    Meatballs and spaghetti, seafood ravioli, pasta were excellent. Sometimes hard to get waiter’s attention. Seemed short staffed. Bar service especially slow.

    I had lunch with a business associate and Chase was our bartender/waiter. Leila and Amanda would come around to see how we were doing and to stop by to chit chat about how life was treating us. Chase brought us up to date with his daughter and the new school she is attending. Chase as always never fails to make me feel like we are very special. In fact watching him with other patrons, he does make everyone feel special. You are very lucky to have him as an employee. Thank you.

    The rib-eye was not as good as I had expected, but it was not bad. I guess I should book a steakhouse if I want a better steak. The meal was pretty good. The server could have been friendly and more knowledgeable, but we've had worse service. The ambiance is nice for a casual place.

    We hadn't been here in 2 years and this experience was great. The food was excellent; the lobster bisque, lasagna bolognese and create your own pasta. The cocktails were affordable, delicious and potent enough to satisfy. Service was great as well: servers were friendly, attentive and efficient. We will definitely be back.

    This is the best place at Ala Moana Shopping Center for a great Italian lunch. The staff here is always so friendly and capable. Great menu items to choose from but we often end up with getting the same thing each time because we love it so much...the chicken parm! They know how to cook the pasta...al dente! They have nice salads too. The tiramisu is delicious. Portions are plentiful. Great choices for wine too, by glass or bottle. While we usually enjoy lunch at a table or booth, we have also gone many times for eating at the bar in the early evening.

    We had a good dining experience. Portion size of steak & mash potatoes was ok but chicken Marsala was delicious. Fried mozzarella was tasty but small portion for $16- Dessert tray was ok but I wish they had a gelato that was lighter option after a heavy meal. Service was great 👍

    The worse Macaroni Grill franchise I have been to. The $18 to $22 dollar Entree salads looked more like side salads. My daughters and son were still hungry. Will never go to any MG again.

    Disappointed in menu post-COVID. They used to offer a spinach-orzo salad that was great, but I this visit I had to settle for not-interesting chicken Caesar salad. Noise level was low because it was after the lunch rush (as planned). But, the server was almost rude. He walked away twice (we were sort of mid-sentence), then had to be hailed to take our order and give us the check. Regret he just didn’t seem interested; he seemed quite distracted. Sorry for his bummer-day, but it did affect my rating.

    Food was bland, not sure if it was because they were busy or what. Had high expectations and was let down. Had a reservation and still waited 25 min to be seated, again was busy but I feel like that shouldn’t happen. Staff was friendly and nice, but the service was slow, though I feel it was our waiter. The drinks where good can’t complain there.

    I ordered the chicken picatta. It was excellent! We went at 530pm. Wasn't busy. Super fast service but didn't seem pre-made. Fresh and delicious. Boyfriend had sirloin. Looked thick 1.5 inches . He said it was a good cut of meat.

    The food was pretty bad. The Alfredo had no flavor, the lasagna was terrible; the pasta was over cooked (mushy) and the meat was like the stuff the comes inside canned ravioli, the chicken was dry and over-cooked. That was just the "Mama's Trio". My wife had the 'Pene Rustico' and the pasta was under cooked; beyond al dente. Our server was very busy and took quite awhile to fulfill requests; drinks, pepper flakes. Bottom line, we will not be eating at Romano's Macaroni Grill again. Accept for the company, our date-night was not what we had planned.

    This was my third time here. I haven’t gone in many years but forgotten how the food was. My wife wanted to go for the first time. She wasn’t pleased as there was a $10 mark up on her pasta to add an item. As for me my taste palette is different from the chefs. I don’t like heavy marinara on any of my pasta. I had mamas trio and the lasagna had a bit too much feta cheese for my liking. Our server was good but busy on other tables. In my humble opinion I probably won’t choose this place to eat Italian/pasta. This restaurant maybe wonderful for others.

    Service was terrible, very slow, bad attitude, didn’t clear first course dishes before second course. Waited with dirty plates for our bill long after we had finished, no apology. Didn’t tip. Lasagna was dry, didn’t finish it.

    100% GOODNESS: Our visits last month and this month were completely different. Although we were disappointed on our prior visit, we had a great experience this time around -- everything was absolutely perfect, in fact. SERVICE: was top notch. We were seated right away. Mel N's recommendations were on point. She spoiled us, keeping our water glasses full, etc. Even the oil for the bread had balsamic vinegar and pepper in it. FOOD: The stuffed mushrooms, mac & cheese, and well-done brussel sprouts were so tasty. The chicken parmesean was tender, and portions looked like the restaurant advertisements. The mushroom ravioli was garnished beautifully, light and creamy. We were given a full bowl of parmesean for our table and butter packets. These little things may seem insignificant for some people, but for us, the little extras were appreciated. AMBIANCE: We were seated in a large booth, as requested. The complimentary birthday cake for my husband was delicious -- We had the tiramisu (light and moist and very rummy) and the canolli (if you love cinnamon, you'll love these crunchy desserts). DISCOUNT: We used the emailed BOGO to-go for the chicken parmesean. Our daughter was very pleased to get a perfect plate when she got home from work -- her favorite dish. She was given oil and a full loaf of fluffy bread. Last time, I was too disappointed to take photos of the food -- this time I was so happy with my dish that I dove right in and forgot to take a shot. We'll be back. Thank you, RMG staff for a wonderful brunch.
