While this is a chain restaurant and does vary in food quality for one to another, the Macaroni Grill in Temecula has always been a winner. The menu provides a wide array of Italian dishes to chose from, the staff is fun and service is better than most. The particular restaurant is a bit noisy, as there is little to... More

We love to go to Macaroni Grill. We like to eat in the bar area. We know all the girls. The food is consistantly good. That little loaf of bread with olive oil is to die for. My husband loves the mushroom ravoli, and my favorite is the lasagna. All their entrees are excellent!

It was my first time to visit/eat at a Romano's Macaroni Grill. After walking in and noticing the ambience and the menu it was nothing like I had expected, always thought it was more of a mac n cheese place with pizzas. I was wrong!! The menu had quite a few items that caught my eye and appetite. The service... More

The quality of food was lacking. I ordered a salad was supposed to have chicken on it. They forgot to the put the chicken on, so I pointed this out and then I was brought some sort of over salted processed chicken substance for my salad. Also service was slow I mean very slow. I wouldn't eat here again.

We tried two of their new specials tonight..both were fantastic. Several new "mega" meatball on pasta selections and a braised pork plate. Topped off with affordable and enjoyable wine and prosecco. Chocolate ganache cake was a wonderful ending. Good service. Quick seating even at 7:30PM on Saturday.

I took my brother here for lunch on his birthday. We both loved it. The complimentary bread was warm, freshly baked, and delicious. Both of our entrees were large and tasty, and we had plenty to take home too. Our server, Dana, was friendly and attentive. She even gave my brother a free birthday dessert! I definitely recommend this restaurant.

I find normally that chain restaurants miss a few of the key issues when it comes to service and food quality, this place was good, great service and the food was above average. If had to say there was a negative about the evening it would be several members of the staff asked us the same questions......a nice atmosphere.

We celebrated my birthday here a couple of weeks ago. It was mid-week and we were there for lunch. I ordered a plate with penne pasta, sausage and meatballs. It was outstanding and even though I'm a big eater, I took more than half home with me. There were few people in the restaurant while we were there, and I... More
