Enjoyed the food and would recommend.

Have eaten there a bunch of times, good food and a nice atmosphere. Pasta dishes are really great, and the warm bread.

Wife and I stopped by for an early dinner. We have several Mac Grills in our area and have found them all to offer a pleasant dining experience. Staff are pleasant and accomodating and willing to comment on menu items and engage in small talk. Food never appears packaged and each dish appears as if a knowledgable chef prepared it... More

Something about the great Italian smells of this place. Always inviting and home of comfort food. I bit disappointed they don't serve the bowtie chicken mushroom dish I loved so much. Harder to find my new dish. Still love to eat here.

A good variety of traditional Italian food - heavy on the pasta with sauce. they also serve wine on the honor system, which is interesting.

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.

We have been here with the family several times now. The kids especially love it. The food is good at a fair price.

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.
