Was private party. Appetizers were outstanding. Drinks were also good but seemed to be a wait whenever bartender/server left. Food was such large portions I think lot went to waste. Good pieces of meat for fillets, but not a lot of flavor. Dessert was awesome-we had the flourless chocolate cake-amazing!

Maldaner's is where the "locals" dine for they know the food and service will be exceptional. This is a chef owned restaurant and Chef Michael is well known at the local farmers markets purchasing items just harvested to serve that night. The desserts are all made fresh in the kitchen and are scrumptious. Enjoy!

This was one of our favorite 'special' restaurants. Recently there was a pretty big issue. The special was prime rib. Both my husband and my daughter ordered it. My husband's was cooked as he ordered, but there was such heavy gristle it made a LOT of the meat inedible. My daughter ordered hers well done. I know that many think... More

Stopped in here on cold day for turkey chili and french dip roast beef sandwiches. the homemade potato chips weren't crispy as we expected but rather gummy but we were there mid-afternoon and after the lunch crowd. Waiter was in middle of setting up tables for evening but still had great service. One note- the bathrooms are up a long... More

I order seafood dishes at Maldaner's and can say the preparation and flavors are always spot-on. The sea bass, if available, is a standout. Many ingredients are locally-sourced and the chef/owner is attentive to operating a green business. A local wine shop often has wine-pairing dinners at Maldaner's which are wonderfully-executed, as well. I am moving soon, yet will remember... More

We went to Maldaner's for the first time with a group of friends on a Saturday evening. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our waiter could not have been more attentive or helpful. The place was packed, it was pretty noisy but that did not take away from the overall nice experience. Our food was very good although we... More

I have been to Maldaner's many times and never had less than a terrific meal. The staff is helpful and friendly, the owner often comes out to visit with patrons, and ingredients couldn't be fresher. Prices reflect the quality of food and beverages but are quite affordable. This is a top tier restaurant for Springfield!

We had not been here for about 12 years, based on not grat service at our last visit. I'm so glad friends decided we should eat at Maldaner's for a night out, because otherwise we would not have returned. The food is fantastic. Flavors were really amazing. I had goat cheese salad and the pasta special, which was penne in... More

Downtown Springfield close to the Historic Old State Capital this is a great restaurant to visit. The food was wonderful and my favorite part was the carrot cake for dessert probably the best I have had eaten. The service is spot on. I would return for sure to this restaurant.
