Consistently good food, good prices...service could improve.

Every time I visit Macarroni Grill I can rely on the quality of the food and this one lived up to that expectation. The service wasn't that great. I don't know. They were somewhat distracted despite the fact that there were not many people in the restaurant. Maybe they are used to having more... read 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

Food is great, taste is very Italian and portions are big. One plate feed two, easily. The honor way of serving wine is unique. The bread has no equal and the service in general is good.

The portions are great and the food we ordered look very good. They really tried hard to accommodate our allergies but there were not many options which was disappointing. The waiter was really great for the first 10 minutes and then he disappeared for most of the night which was annoying when they weren't busy . The food was just... More

Our waiter, Adel, was exceptionally attentive to us. Never an empty glass and he made sure we had everything we needed. We can always count on Macaroni Grill!

Realy nice decoration. The food was great. Real italian taste. The pasta was great and chicken was extra good. Prices are moderate. A family of 2 adults and 1 child can eat at only 40 dollars including tips.

We like to come here one night while on vacation to get some good pasta. Casual atmosphere and good choice of food. This time service was a little rushed. Got our salad after our main course and waiter made it sound like that was the right way to do it. Not a big deal. Surprised with the number of empty... More

I cook a lot at home, but I also enjoy to taste other flavors, and learn new recipes. This restaurant had never set me down. The tomatoe sauce tastes like mine. It is chuncky, perfectly seasoned. I ordered the eggplant parmeggiana, and one of my kids ordered the steak parmeggiana. The cheese was melting down perfectly. Only the mac n... More

The wine was fab and the kids loved being able to draw on the table cloths but the adult meals really were not great. Shame as the staff were lovely as was the ambiance.

First I must say I am a big Macaroni Grill fan and eat there frequently in Tampa but this unit was a big disappointment. Our 7:15 reservation was on time and we were seated right away. There were four of us and we always order a couple of bottles of wine with our meals and of course our entrees. This... More
