Excellent Food, but service wasn't the best

Chose to eat here one night because we had a decent experience at another location in the past, and were really feeling a night of Italian. The food was phenomenal--much better than the Olive Garden quality we're used to at home. But our waitress wasn't the greatest. She was a bit forgetful at... read more

We ate here on our first night in town. We were seated right away and had a great server! We never had to ask for anything and the food was wonderful!

While on a much needed getaway, we decided to have a romantic lunch at the Macaroni Grill. The restaurant was not crowded, so we were sat immediately. We were greeted by a waitress within minutes who took our drink order and returned about 5 minutes later. There appeared to be plenty of wait staff, so I don't understand why it... More

While checking into the staybridge suites across the road, I was given a 20% off for this place, so our family decided to try the macaroni grill out. My lovely wife has gluten/dairy allergies so she asked for an allergy menu... they don't make gf pasta anymore, so that was out. What she did have she liked.. the kids liked... More

We had Sunday lunch here because our hotel gave us a 20% off coupon. The bread that they give is excellent and the pasta is great. We had a party of 10 and were able to eat for $100 (including tip).

My family an di go there a lot, but was disappointed. It seemed like that sense not a lot of people were there, the employees, and chefs, took even longer, to get our food. They added extra charges on are check, and forgot to give us some thins we ordered. I expected more.

We do not have a local Macaroni Grill in our area any longer. We were looking forward to wonderful dining experience. The restaurant was not busy...maybe 5-8 other patrons. We were greeted and seated promptly. However, it took awhile for our server to acknowledge us. We had to ask our seating hostess for our bread. We had to ask for... More

Went there for a nice evening meal and received it. But, noted service was almost non- existant. Server did not show up for more than nine minutes at our table. Food was prepared well and served well, but, waiter seemed almost non attentive. After our meal was eaten, we waited another lengthy time to get our waiters attention so we... More
