We hosted a private party for friends in one of Maggiano's rooms on the lower level. We had an easy time making the arrangements with Brenda. The food was great and plentiful. There were leftovers for our guests to take home. Everyone enjoyed it. The wait staff was excellent: polite and friendly. I would not hesitate to book one of... More

We dine at this chain quite often. It is well known for generous entree sizes at a fair price. There is a nice variety of Italian fare on the menu.

Maggiano's has been a family favorite for years, but recent menu price explosions have cooled our passionate support. Additionally, the deep flavors previously expected from Maggiano's have yielded to passive, blander ones. I love the atmosphere, the salads and the clever ideas, but I'd love to see and feel the old energy and creative cooking of past years.

We went to Maggianos expecting more than what we got. The food was good, plainly good, the service was mediocre. I ordered a bottle beer and was given a glass of draft beer that was not so good, we didn't get refills of water or drinks. I can't blame the waiters, they were two and were busy, but with all...

Although this is a chain from LER (Lettuce Entertain you Restaurants) you get good Italian cuisine. Service is very good and you will never leave hungry. Most times you will be taking home enough for another meal. The only negative about this place is when it is full it can be a bit noisy, but don't let that deter you... More

Give your stomach a break and avoid the heavy food quantities of this place. It's a lively place, and the staff are very friendly, but the food is too heavy. It all appears as if it's mass produced.

This restaurant is within in one of the most popular shopping centers of the Chicago north shore suburbs. Food and atmosphere are always good, but it is always busy. Sometimes is hard to find parking in the immediate vicinity, so you could try valet.

We have been to several locations. It's crowded, expensive and service is mediocre at best. Too corporate, stiff and kitschy. But it's clean and the selection is adequate.
