A great place to meet friends and enjoy a predictably great dinner. The service is top and the menu is wonderful. Portions are very large and well prepared. Thursdays bottle of wines are half price and a great deal. We had a group of 6 for dinner. All our meals were served at the same time and hot. Always a... More

Had a great dinner at the Macaroni Grill. Our waitress was Grace, and she was exceptional. The service was timely and she was extremely friendly. We had appetizers of meatballs and some type of bruschetta cheese fondue. Both were great! We also had the veal parmigiana and the buffalo chicken Parmesan. Both were terrific. The place had a nice atmosphere,... More

The restaurant is in a busy shopping mall area of Fresno. Typical set up and menu as others. This particular location stands out because of their staff --- very fast service and Minnesota nice beyond belief. Food was good and atmosphere lively like other restaurants in this chain. If you like good food and really attentive service this place will... More

We have been here several times. We cam on January 24th, 2015 because a reservation at Yosemite Ranch was not honored. The staff this night were extremely busy as the place was packed. We were told there would be a 25 minute wait and so we and our friends went to the bar. The wait time turned into 15 minutes... More

Ok, second visit within a month. The second visit a group of friends met at 11 am, which is the time it opens, so we're thinking, quick lunch and visit session...well we did have time to visit because it took about an hour to get our food. We had several servers come to our table, so we were not sure... More

We met our friends at Macaroni Grill for a leisurely lunch and found the atmosphere perfect! Not crowded, plenty of tables, sat in an area away from the rest so that we could reconnect and be able to hear each other. Wonderful server, great food.....were able to stay and visit after lunch ,and not rushed. Comfortable....we will be back.

We took our two oldest grandchildren out for pasta, but we got SO much more. Our server, Jason; was attentive and present. He took the time to make eye contact with our girls; very important!!! We are trying to both teach and encourage table manners so whenever we notice that type of service we appreciate it SO very much. Our... More

This place is straight from where it counts. No fanfare. Just focus on the core stuff coupled with warm service and a bright atmosphere. If you are lucky (like we were) you might get to hear a few snatches of classical vocal music. The food was simple and mostly tasted well. The meatballs were excellent. The proscuitto and mozarella too... More
