This chain has consistently gone downhill for the past several years. I gave them one more try for lunch today...what a disaster! The rigatoni was severely overcooked to the point of being gummy. Totally inedible. I will not waste my money giving them another chance.

fter an afternoon of shopping at the Ridgedale Mall, and toughing out the bitter cold, we decided to dine at Ramano's Macaroni Grill across the highway on Hopkins Crossroad and 394. The warmth of the fireplace was welcoming, and the ambiance was in keeping with what we would expect for an Italian restaurant. The dinning room was not very full,... More

Food was fast and awesome, my mother had never been here before so our waitress Angela really helped out with the selection for her. Dipping the fantastic bread into the olive was a brand new experience for her. Bountiful portions, and very attentive service. Will definitely go back.

Had Lunch here today, enjoyed two of their new "Fatbread" Pizzas,(different from the thinner Flatbread,much thicker crust). The two were their Farmhouse,and the Smashed Meatball Fatbreads. The biggest win on this meal is the Homemade sauce is on the side, giving the customer the choice of amount of sauce,and it is wonderful stuff. Lunch for two,plus enough left over for... More

Used to be an old favorite when we lived in Minneapolis but I suspect has seen better days since. Our server was very nice and the service was reasonably fast but the food was not as good as I remembered. I ordered the pork chop which was a tad on the hard side. The sauce was also so heavy on...

Had a great coupon- $20 off $40 so we decided to try it again. We arrived about 4:15 and the staff were frantic. The waitstaff had to tell the manager what to do to improve the situation. We tried an appetizer Mozzarella Fondota. The flat bread served with it wasn't right. It was either stale or something. Weirdly chewy in... More

This is the 4th time we have been to this Macaroni Grill in the last 4 mos. and each time we have come out singed or a little burned. Last night was more of a cuisine and geographic compromise. We have never failed to get our check discounted by the manager because of faults with the meals. Last night, entering... More

Poor service, very slow. Our waiter would disappear for 10 minutes at a time. Food was average at best, had better at Olive Garden which is horrible. Then both my wife and I had upset stomachs the whole night. Not food poisoning......just not right. Too many choices in the area to waste time going there again.

Went there for happy hour in the bar, which I think runs 4 to 7 pm. We had $3 wine and pints of beer - including craft beers. The flatbread pizzas were $5 and were great. Waitress was great too. We'll be going back!

I haven't been to any Macaroni Grill in a few years. I was surprised that, for a chain, the food was very good and the price reasonable. The portions we had were huge. When we went, Thursday was half price wine bottle night. One large bottle ($15 on with the half price) of their house wine served 5 of us... More
