Visited this restaurant after shopping at Woodbury Outlets. Server is friendly but not too attentive. Ordered the lobster ravioli and meat ball spaghetti with Caesar salads. Ravioli is tasty but meat ball spaghetti is only so-so. The place is nice and quiet and good for family dinner.

Bottom Line: Avoid!!! Details: We arrived to an empty restaurant on New Year's Day. Our waitress was friendly and helpful and everything started out well. Once our food arrived, the problems started. First, my daughter's pizza was dropped so that held up all of our food. When they brought a new one, they forgot the pepperoni so they brought it... More

In all fairness, our last time at this restaurant was about a year ago so hopefully things have changed. 20 years ago, I remember going to Romanos when I was in college and just loving the place...it was near (or in) Towson, MD. Looking for a good place to have dinner instead of cooking on a Friday night I took... More

I had dinner here with a friend who lives nearby. I've had meals I truly enjoyed at the Macaroni Grill in Reston, VA. This was my first visit to this location. After ordering the blackened chicken parmesan, I used the men's room. The hot water was very cold. While returning to my table, I asked the greeter if the staff... More

For a chain, the food is very good. Good prices and excellent service too. Much better than the Olive Garden.

OK, but not special. Food is good, but portions smaller than in most italian restaurants. No reservations, but had "call ahead".

Normally have a good experience but haven't gone back since last year. Wasn't happy with take out. Too many other choices in the area.

We had a $25 gift certificate, so we came. My first impression was horrible. I stopped into the men's room immediately after being seated. It reminded me of what the Port Authority Bus Terminal men's room looked and smelled like years ago!! Toilet paper and paper towels all over the floor. The stalls had wet marks from use on the...

We went to Macaroni Grill for a dinner to celebrate a retiring employee. It was nice they gave us the back room for some privacy, but a lot went wrong with the meal. I’d like to think that because we were a large party that it was too much for the staff to handle, but I still don’t think there’s... More

The staff is always happy and friendly. The food, however,tastes like generic cafeteria food. It is exactly like simple boxed pasta boiled on the stove with canned pasta sauce dumped on top...
