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.

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!

The some of the food was pretty good, but the service was too fast to let you enjoy it. We were there on a week night around 6:30 or so. If there had been a dinner rush that night, then it was clearly over by the time we arrived. Also, since closing was still a few hours away, there really... More

3 of us from the office ate here today for lunch. We arrived at 12 noon sharp and we were led straight to a table. Kelly was the server. Food was average. Bread was hot, but no knife was served to cut it and it was too "hard to easily tear apart without everyone's fingers all over it. One person... More

I went to the Macaroni Grill to celebrate my cousin's eighteenth birthday. Our party of sixteen was well received. We got prompt and courteous service. While our servers were attentive, they were not overly intrusive. The food is in the mid-range which is to be expected from a chain restaurant. The calamari was delicious and so was the bread with...
