The lack of cars noon Sunday should have been recognized as a key indicator. The food was okay. My Warm Spinach Salad with Shrimp was a bit salty but my wife's pasta with meat sauce was good. Our server, Diana, was superb and friendly! My issue with our visit was the Men's room! Though overall okay, the sinks were atrocious!... More

We were in Anaheim unexpectedly for a family funeral and this restaurant was able to provide us a large table in a side alcove on very short notice. The service was excellent and very patient with our large group lingering well past our meal. The food was adequate, good basic Italian, nothing superb.

Romano's Macaroni Grill is one of our favorite places to eat. We seem to end up here every other time we go out. The food is wonderful and the servers are very attentive. Their loaf of bread is so good, especially when dipped in their mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. Enjoy!

On this Wednesday evening, restaurant was not crowded. There is ample parking that serves this restaurant and other businesses in the Anaheim Festival Center. Walking toward the restaurant entrance, an employee opened the door and greeted us. Without reservation, we were seated immediately. Our friendly server Erika and manager stopped by often at our table to see if we needed... More

We've been to this location several times. It seems to be the luck of the draw whether the food is any good or not. I had their steak this time and it wasn't very good. Other times I've tried their various pasta dishes which are typically a little more consistent. They have an honor system with the wine which is... More

On a Friday after a movie we used a gift card for the nearby Macaroni Grill. At 6pm the parking lot was jammed but our wait was about 8 minutes. We were sat at a small but adequate table near the kitchen and next to what was a main server access to the kitchen. First problem, this place is really... More

We had a nice quiet lunch on a Friday afternoon. The variety was nice and my salad was great. Even though it's a pasta place, there were some good Paleo options. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice for a chain restaurant.

After shopping, visited Macaroni Grill for the 1st time in quite a long time. I was happy to see my favorite, the Parmesan Crusted Sole with the sun dried tomato orzo side still on the menu because it is delicious & plentiful. Mom ordered Eggplant Parmigiana, the initial order came out black/burnt all the way around, which our waiter, Trevor... More
