Consistently good

Macaroni Grill is one of our go to' son Kendal Drive. It's usually busy but they've always had space for us. The food is good, the service kind and attentive and the atmosphere is nice whether it be for a business lunch with colleagues or a family night out.

I was surprised how empty the restaurant was. You always had to make a huge line here. Yes, it has been a long time I had not been here. The food was still good. The service was excellent. We enjoyed it!

We visited on a Monday at 2:00 for a lunch. Immediately we were struck by the over whelming stink of gasoline. A pressure washer was cleaning the floor of one of the food preparation stations. There were open food containers in that immediate area. I asked the host why this process was happening during a lunch period. He stated that... More

This has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years, but lately I notice that the food has not been as good as it was in the last couple of years. The restaurant appears to have cut corners on the size of the entrees as well as the wine. In the past, on the honor system, we had the... More

We had been there many times in the past and went with a group of 6 adults and 2 children. Our waiter was nice but lacked experience dealing with a larger group. When were first seated a waiter (not ours) handed one person in our group the silverware and told us to hand it out. Our waiter forgot the kids... More

It's a chain, but one that we don't have in my area so it was new to me. The service and food were both good. I ate there twice and got the same dinner salad two nights (It was good enough to order a second time). The description stated that it contained proscuitto in addition to the other ingredients and...

I have been to this store at other times and it was consistent and good. This time our experience was not so. It took 14 min for the server to come to us once we were sat and then all went downhill, cold and wrong food for one of us. The replacement came when the rest was done, parmesan came... More

Sorry but just all around not good. The open kitchen in the front where patrons are expected to sit and wait for table is not inviting at all. Left smelling like fried food. The unusual setup of serving stations all along center of restaurant not pretty. Food was so mediocre. No pizzazz and no reason to return.

This was not a good experience. We arrived very early (around 5). The place was virtually empty. We waited and waited and waited. The service was soooo slow. Our waiter was pleasant. They were not understaffed. Dinner was fair. Won't return soon.
