Our family has always enjoyed visiting Romano's Macaroni Grill in Cary NC. In the past, I thought of Romano's as a place for tasty Italian food, great service, all for a moderate price. While I personally have never been displeased with a meal that I ordered, our last 3 visits have been just not been up to the standards that... More

Our waitress Rachel seemingly was in a bad mood, or was just having a bad day, either way we felt unwelcome from the start. Service was of average speed, my Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken came with a surprise, paper wrappings with a bar-code on it mixed into my food. After a moment of chewing I realized I was eating paper,... More

Always get a special salad to keep it healthy, to make up for enjoying the fresh baked bread & herbed olive oil. Donna gets a seafood entre' and gives me a bite or two. After 2 loaves of tasty bread we finally are too full for dessert!

I recently visited this Macaroni Grill (MG) while visiting family in Apex. My two granddaughters are calamari lovers and we have had great luck with calamari at MG previously, but not this time. It was not advertised as spicy, but it was spicy and not only turned off my granddaughters, but me as well. Our server, Bob, was attentive and... More

I enjoyed a chicken dish that was featured as a low-calorie selection on their menu. It was very tasty and satisfying and would have pleased anyone, diet or no diet.

We expected more! Macaroni Grill has long been a standard for excellence but tonight the restaurant was mediocre at best. Even though the restaurant was not full or crowded, our waitperson was slow and didn't pay much attention to us. The wine and bread appeared quickly but there was a long wait for someone to take our order. Dinner got... More

My sweetheart and I often dine at the Romano's Macaroni Grill in Cary, N.C. The food is always consistently good and the service is excellent. I have ordered Margherita flatbread at many other Italian restaurants around town and by far, I like the Romano's Margherita flatbread above everyone else's offering. My sweetheart's favorite is the Chicken Milanese with roasted potatoes.... More

Had a very nice lunch. Took the girls out, and the waiter was fantastic. The food was quite good, but could have been a little hotter. Before dessert, I went to the bathroom, and it smelled horrible. To the point, that it turned my stomach off for dessert. I mention something to the waiter, who I presume mentioned it to... More

First off, the ladies room was out of soap and tp. I reported it to the hostess and she just replied"I know, it was reported by someone before you". Our waiter, Frankie, seemed sincere and capable so I like to think the rest of our experience was not his fault. We were a party of 5. The person opening our... More

Our server was great and made wonderful suggestions. It is a chain but the prices are reasonable and the food is good. We were there until closing and spent about an hour talking to our server and the staff. They were great.
