Still Good After All These Years

I enjoyed my meal and experience at Macaroni Grill. I had the Italian Bake and WOW, was it good. I'm not really a meatball fan but I am now. The meatballs and Italian sausage.... oh my..... : ) My only complaint was the bread wasn't hot and it was a bit crusty...... that changed my rating from... read more

We were on a trip round the Western U.S.A., and had a one night stay in Scottsdale. Many of the bus tour members went off to Rustlers Rooste, but we declined. I am SO glad we did!!! I can say hand on heart, that the dish I had here was indeed one of the most memorable I have ever had!... More

Fresh refrigerated cold bread to start off with, 5 minutes to be seated. Staff constantly standing around. Slow to bring out food, will let it sit on the window for 10-20 minutes before brining it, we watched this happen with the other tables that managed to be occupied during their "lunch rush." Its saying something when restaurants next door are... More

Haven't been to one of these in quite some time. The food was OK. A bit carb heavy and more cream than tomato sauces, but OK and what you would expect. The bar was silly out of touch. Beer-no local or craft beers other than Sam Adams. In 2015? Many cutesy bar drinks like trying to be trendy 20 years... More

Walked here from the Homewood suites which was nice. But from the get go things were just off enough to make me think twice about returning to a Macaroni. We asked to sit out side and the table rocked and rolled on the uneven surface. The waiter laughed but did not offer to fix it so we took it upon... More

Typical fast casual experience. Food is good, but hard to move around the menu if you want less than 1200 calories, but if you want consistent pasta dishes, it will be as expected.

first time trying this place and having never been to one, I was looking forward to it. My friends were out doing other things that night so I rolled solo. I always like dining in the bar especially when solo. I think the service is better and usually the conversation. Young gal working the bar greeted me(not promptly) and offered... More

Normally when I go out to eat, it's either seafood, pork chops, or steaks that I order. Very rarely do I order chicken. My wife talked me into ordering their Chicken under a Brick while she ordered the Penne Rustica, First of all, the place was not very busy on a Thursday night at around 6 PM. Our server was... More

Since we were staying at the Hampton, my wife preferred to walk next door to this restaurant. We had eaten here once before, had poor service, but we gave it another try. We got seated & several minutes later our waiter came by, introduced himself, took our drink order & left. I was drinking water with lemon. When the water... More
