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

We used to enjoy frequent romantic dinners at Romano's Macroni Grill in Anaheim Hills. Not so much these days. Over the last two or three years their menu has been up and down, so once we find a favorite, we cannot expect to see it again. Additionally the service has gone downhill since they started dressing the wait staff in... More

We were staying at the Residence Inn across the street in Yorba Linda/Anaheim Hills. This Macaroni Grill was almost literally in the same parking lot as the Hotel. Great location. We went for lunch and the service and the food was great. Very nicely decorated and comfortable. Not crowed at the time we went and really enjoyed it!

we had our dinner, the corner we were seated was so dimly lit, could hardly read the menu. It took them a while to bring the bread & olive oil, that too was cold. For appetizer we had ordered Bruchetta, fried zucini, not so good, fried zucini seemed like was fried in stale oil, some pieces were still limpy, dripping... More
