I've been to many of the Romano's Macaroni Grill's over the years and they have cut back on the quality and the home cooked flavoring. It was pretty generic. My wife's lobster ravioli was chewy and had some shell in it. The chicken in my meal was very processed, not freshed prepared. It is a shame that they couldn't keep... More

I've been here many times over the years but since the "great recession" everything has really gone downhill. They remodeled the place so now it looks more run-of-the-mill instead of somewhat classy. The food and service have also suffered; much less special and much more average than before. You can tell they are struggling to survive. The waiters used to... More

I was expecting just standard fare but it was a cut above. Appetizer = Mac & Cheese Bites, Truffle Dip - This was very, very, good. Salad = Bibb and Bleu Cheese - My first time trying this. Bibb leaves, gorgonzola, crispy prosciutto, walnuts, pickled red onions, buttermilk dressing worked perfectly. Between this and the mac & cheese, we were... More

This was not my pick of where to go to eat. That being said it was an OK meal and experience. I think there are many better places to eat, but this was not bad. The service was good, not great. She could have sold a few more drinks had she been around more. We waited a long time between... More

My wife and I went here for dinner. We enjoyed the service and atmosphere and the food was certainly better that one often gets at a national chain. The decor also adds to the atmosphere and we will certainly go there again.

Date night with my husband usually requires we make the 1 1/2 hour drive from Sierra Vista to Tucson so we take our experiences seriously. This was an a excellent choice! The server, Sam, was a delight as well as on point when it came to taking care of us. The lobster ravioli was delish, the house wines were much... More

With a name like Macaroni Grill, what is the one dish that they not only should be able to prepare well, but far better than everyone else? Of course, macaroni and cheese. I should have had a clue when I didn't see it on the dinner menu. But, the waitress assured us that preparing it was no problem. Wrong! My... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality food and service at this location based on the average reviews we had read. We were seated promptly at 5:30 on Friday night and even commented to the manager about how well the entire restaurant staff did their job. He told us that the real stars were the chefs. We learned that each... More
