This is a great place to go after the mall since it is in front of the Westfield Town Center. Although anytime would be good. Food is fantastic and atmosphere is relaxing.

As far as the Gluten Free menu choices, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the options. The service was really good and everyone was satisfied with their meals. The atmosphere was nice, but it doesn't have the same feel that it use to a few years ago when Romano's first popped onto the scene. The music choice isn't the... More

Nothing spectacularly good or bad - just average. Their service is a little slow at lunchtime. The menu seems to have all the same items it has always had, and they're the same items as just about every other Italian-inspired chain.

Went in completely blind without knowing what to expect and what a great surprise!!! Had a pretty good Italian feel. Service was good and the crayons at the table were fun. The wine list was extraordinary and we settled in well. Appetizers were amazing!!! The grilled feta was divine. Good bread, too. The actual dinners were ok. I had a... More

Good tasty with oversized portions and excellent service. You may have to wait as usually crowed but once seated noise is not an issue

Visiting friends in the area and decided to have dinner there. So with 3 boys in tow we hit it up at 5:30...the server was great with the boys giving them extra menus to color on as well as the paper covering on the table, which I have found to be great with the kids. The food came out and... More

I used to love the ambiance at Macaroni Grill, and this location was no different. But it has been going down hill. Tonight I decided to give it a final shot and wish I hadn't. Macaroni Grill must be pinching pennies, because it shows, beginning with mismatched uniforms (jeans), dirty glassware, to the listless wait staff. We used to get... More

Long wait time, server was ok but food was not good. Husband is Celiac and has to have gluten free. One reason we chose them is gluten free pasta. The GF pasta was not cooked properly and somewhat unedible. Our granddaughter was anxious to go here for the alfredo sauce dishes. She was highly disappointed, too thick,etc. I had the... More

This is the second time I have tried to eat here with friends while passing through the area (tfirst time the wait was an hour so we went somewhere else). This time the parking lot was empty but we still waited 10 minutes for a table. The food was the same as other Macaroni grills. Service was ok, but they... More
