Still okay

I receive offers and discounts about weekly from Macaroni Grill (owned by Chili's). On the whole they are good. The management and staff try to create a good experience. Most of the time it works.

We waited and waited while several waitress passed us by completely ignoring us. A table next to us was seated after us and had their drinks and bread and we still had not been approached. As we started to leave we were asked if we had been helped. We ordered drinks and saw people get food who had be seated... More

This use to one of my favorite places to eat, not any more. Will NEVER go back. I ordered the chicken scaloppini, one of my favorites. It came with 3 very small pieces of breaded chicken (dry), a mound of angel hair pasta, with 4 artichokes pieces, a few small strips of prosciutto, 6 mushroom slices, NO CAPERS (even though... More

Used to like this chain but no more. Wrote a bad review on the location 2012, but gave it another try...MISTAKE ordered chicken parm sandwich from lunch menu that includes no side. Sandwich came and took a bite. Felt like I bite into bread and tomato sauce. Looked inside and it only had a thin sliver of chicken finger. Called... More

Had lunch with friends and chose the pick three. We liked the mozzarella appetizer. The salads were OK but two of the pasta dishes had pasta that was too al dente. The cheese ravioli with vodka sauce was good. Ordered cappuccinos and tiramisu for dessert. The cappuccinos were good but the tiramisu mediocre. Service was spotty. Dirty plates were left... More

This place was great at one time, now it has changed! We went last night, and the food was terrible. Under cooked pasta, bad tasting, rubbery chicken. The service was slow. I have noticed over the years that they have changed their recipes and each time it gets worse. I will not go again. I now know why they were... More

Food was good, and even though the restaurant was busy, we did not have to wait for service - the manager had a bartender wait on us at a table. Family friendly, clean restroom, nice atmosphere. Exactly what we expected from a Macaroni Grill.

We attended Littleton's Macaroni Grill for my birthday and had an enjoyable experience. The quality and quantity of the food is always above average and the staff was extremely pleasant. A waitress sang Happy Birthday in Italian and although I know zero Italian, she had a very lovely voice and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I recommend the Macaroni Grill as... More

Macaroni Grill was only average at best. We went to Macaroni Grill with another couple and two of the four entrees were not what we ordered. They quickly fixed the mistakes but the food was only ok. The greens on my plate were swimming in a bland oil and the chicken was pounded so flat that it was a bit... More
