Wonderful service, not the best food.

Our waiter was amazing, one of the best I have ever had! The food I ordered was awful. I had the fettuccine alfredo. It was watery, had no flavor and just awful. My husband and son really liked their food, my daughter was with me that hers wasn't good. For the price, I was surprised that meals only... read more

What a great place for a large group of ladies. We had a set menu from which everyone choose a salad and an entrée. Service was impeccable, food served very timely. No complaints from anyone! Love it when it works out so well.

I have dined at this restaurant more than several times over the past ten years or so. This evening's meal was one of the worse meals I have ever ate at any restaurant. We went early to beat the supper crowd. When we were seated I noticed my silverware was very spotted with watermarks, no big deal. I wiped them... More

I like macaroni Grill overall but was severely disappointed in their food preparation last night. They over cooked my steak so I sent it back and it came back exactly the same as the first one. tis indicates to me, the person cooking steaks on Wednesday, 8/27/2014 at 6 PM does not know the difference between rare and medium. If... More

Second or third visit. They are promoting pasta including meatball, about the size of baseball. Meat was poorly prepared, or at least to our taste. Salads are extra which they previously were included.

Romano's is a chain restaurant. That said, they are one of our favorite choices for a good meal. I do wish they had a few more vegetarian choices as their Pomordorina soup has a meat broth base but the Eggplant Parmesan and Margherita Flatbread are quite good. They offer a Create Your Own Pasta option that is priced according to... More

Romano's is one of our favorite chain restaurants. Our last visit proved again that they remain at the top of our choice when visiting a chain restaurant. Our server was especially good and it was his first day working alone. Says a lot about their ability to train helpful and knowledgeable servers.

For a chain restaurant, we really enjoyed the food and service! Our server was very busy but still provided excellent service! Our food was fresh and hot! We found the "honor system" for the wine interesting and fun! We would definitely go back for a predictably good meal!
