Overall very good

Service was overall good, but they were slow in taking our order, and the appetizers came before we even had a chance to order. Good kid's menu selection. Portions were large.

Cost even at lunch, and if you don't sit in the bar, will be a long lunch. Food was plentiful with portions, but need better lunch options.

I have always loved Macaroni's Grill but this location was better than the usual. Food is great. Bread is crispy on the outside but soft in the inside. I tried the Lobster ravioli and it was amazing. Remember to get the bib n blue salad to go with the meal. And I cleaned the plate. The gelato was a tad... More

My wife and I dined at this particular grill while checking out a place for one of her club's luncheon meetings. We have an extensive record with the Macaroni Grill in Huntington Beach and found this restaurant to serve up food equally tasty! Staff were very helpful and quite friendly! Lunch service was quick even though we were in no... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for 5 years and love our "date nights" here. Great service, great food, great selection of dinner wines and good location.

I took my family to Romano's Macaroni Grill for a late night dinner in the bar area (after 9pm). The servers were great and attentive to my wife and kids. The portions were better than expected, and the food was delicious. It was a very good value for what we ordered and so last minute, too.

Food was great, server was friendly but very slow and really didn't seem to know which wines were available. I heard her make a comment about a bad tip from a previous customer and then realized why they left her a bad tip.

We had a special occasion to celebrate and brought our own bottle of champagne. They will open it and pour for you and you enjoy your dinner. We can shared appetizers of grilled shrimp to start. I had chicken marsala and it was wonderful and the portion was large enough to share. One in my party had fettuccini alfredo and... More
