Romano's Macaroni Grill is an OK restaurant

Good food, reasonable price, good wine, service so so... If you like Italian food and wine this is the place.

Well it was disappointing. First let's start with the bathroom. It was run down and smelled something fearsome of sewage. One stall didn't even have a lock. Good thing there is a door that separates the bathroom from the dining area. Second, the food was very overpriced and was also burned. Now I know this is not OLIVE GARDEN but... More

They seem to have entered the phase of cheapening some things in order to stay afloat and it's a ghost town of what it used to be. This visit the sundried tomato in my entree was like chewing plastic. Really. I was sure that I was chewing on some plastic packaging that had gotten in my food, spit it out... More

The service left much to be desired. Upon notifying our server an insect had landed on our table (in the middle of the dining room, no less) she picked up the bug, inspected it, and walked away without as much as an apology. Safe to say, we do not recommend this location and will not be returning.

The Baskin' Robbins of spagetti. How many ways do you want it? We also like the Romano's various table wines, and they're priced right, too. The staff members always seem to be pleasant and outgoing. Management visits each table on a periodic basis and they make sure everything is A-OK.

This was among several restaurants we used to frequent and enjoy that now is disappointing. This used to be a bustling place with above average freshly prepared food with the bonus of singing waiters. My last several visits have confirmed that this place is in decline. My visit last night showed only a handful of customers. The parmesan blackened chicken... More

Staring out with the positive, the service was great. On the other hand, though, the food was downright terrible. The best dish was the Lobster Ravioli, but when it came out to us it was cold. Quickly sliding downhill was the Pasta Milano; the chicken was something that you would get at a cheap Subway's. I'm not sure why they... More

Macaroni grill consistently provides great food in a price range that is affordable to many. This particular location did not disappoint. The server was kind and helpful and the food came out promptly. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a inexpensive meal.

Macaroni Grill has been one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the last two metros we've lived in so we were most disappointed when the one closest to our current home closed up. We've been anxious to get back to one for a couple years now and finally got the opportunity on a recent trip to Overland Park (Kansas City,... More

Enjoyed our first visit to Macaroni Grill. Went with the traditional Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken. and it was very good. Nice atmosphere. Not much business on a Tuesday night so got right in. Our waiter, Joel, was great. He was training a new waitress, but still stayed right on top of our dining experience. Graciously brought me a cherry Coke... More
