We have not been to a Macaroni Grill in ages. There were 4 of us, we asked to be seated somewhere where we wouldn't be a bother, we had a lot of catching up to do. We spent 2 1/2 hours talking and eating. Our waitress, Kara was PHENOMINAL, we warned her at the start that we were going to... More

Macaroni is just not what it used to be. We ordered calamari and it tasted like a highly commercial low grade version, thinly sliced, heavily breaded, and served cold and hard. We had to ask for marinara sauce. Stuffed mushrooms were cold but tasted good. Ordered warm spinach and shrimp salad like I always do and it was very salty... More

In the past, there was ALWAYS a line waiting to be seated at this Macaroni Grill location. We didn't mind because the food was pretty good. We are not big fans of "corporate restaurants" but on occasion will dine at one. But I digress; last time we were here we were seated immediately. The restaurant was pretty empty. The menu... More

I have been to several different Macaroni grills around the country and they are always consistently good. You have to love a place that leaves the wine on the table in an honor system! The hot bread and olive oil dip is awesome. I usually get salmon,veal or the create your own pasta which is a great value. I have... More

Overall this was a pretty good experience. Sat at the bar with a friend and took advantage of the Happy Hour pricing and specials. Enjoyed a refreshing Peronti on Draft and had the sausage flat bread pizza.

One of our favorite restaurants is Romano's Macaroni Grill! My husband and I often get the Pollo Caprese. It comes with capellini pomodoro and is 560 calories. Of course, we can't resist the delicious bread served with a plate of olive oil and pepper for dipping. While sitting at the bar, we love the Brick Oven Olives served warm with... More

We ate at Romano's while killing time waiting for our flight. Our experience at Romano's was a really pleasant surprise - food that was prepared with skill and care, and served attentively by our friendly server Kimberly. I had the eggplant parmigiana, which was tasty and crispy on the outside - perfect. I forget what my husband had - I... More

This was our first visit to Macaroni Grill and we found it be a nice experience. We arrived for an early dinner around 5:00 PM and had plenty of parking and no waiting line. That doesn't mean we got seated right away. The hostess was busy doing other things so we had a six or seven minute wait while she... More

I have been here a few times with family and as a date, and it is a great experience. My boyfriend, my family, and I have several food allergies and intolerance that the staff is very knowledgeable about and helpful with the menu and their options.

After encountering the same problem time and time again we finally gave up on the Waterford Lakes location. The problem is that several of our party's dishes were COLD when they were brought to the table. With the open kitchen it was easy to see that the problem was not the waiter but the kitchen. Hard to understand the problem... More
