Our group of 3 dined here at about 5:30 on a Saturday evening. The server was excellent but the food was not. I had the pork shank (basically a meat stew) and the carrots and celery were practically raw. The other 2 entrees were the lasagna, chicken parmesan, manicotti (?) combo- you could tell... read more

We have been going here for a few years at least twice a month. The food is always good. Service is great and the Happy Hour is Great 3 dollar beers, Import and domestic, Great house wine 3 bucks and the 5 dollar flat bread pizza is very good. This restaurant cooks to order, not a fast food place. If... More

This was probably the worst dining experience I've had in some time. Our server had no idea what was gluten free and what wasn't. From the time we placed our order it took nearly an hour to get our entree. My food (non-gluten free) was overcooked. The manager cleared the bill with the exception of drinks.

Many times large chain restaurants offer average food and overpriced drinks. This is not the case for the Macaroni Grill in El Segundo. The food is good and reasonably priced for this area. The patio area is nice and the service has always been attentive. Give this place a try, you'll be surprised.

We dined at Macaroni Grill with a group of 12 (6 adults and 6 kids). They were accomodating and able to get us in with a 10 minute wait on a Friday night. That in my book is worth a few stars. From there, it went downhill. We ordered cocktails and waited, waited, waited for them to arrive. We ordered... More

Our waitress Kiki smiled from the time she colored her name on the paper table cloth to the time we left. Reasonably priced dishes and an optional menu to chose your own pasta selection. A favorite of mine is fresh garlic and olive oil, which was perfect. One of my favorite features is the honor system wine. A bottle of... More

Unfortunately, the Romano's closest to my home shut down a couple of years ago, so I try to get to other restaurants in the chain when I can. I was in Los Angeles on a family trip, and took my daughter and her friend to Romano's for dinner. It was a Saturday night, and the place was quite busy. I... More

I can't think of a single complaint, but it just wasn't spectacular. Maybe it was the table we had that seemed too much in a hallway. It was delicious. The service was on point. My espresso martini was fun and yummy. Yet, I don't feel compelled to go back.

grilled shrimp was tough. The waitress suggested this shrimp over the grilled chicken. They offered to make another one, however, too hungry to wait. They only took $3.00 off the bill .
