A couple of months ago I took the wife to macaroni grill, we went because it was a good place with great food. We were greatly disappointed on what became of that place. The service was mediocre the drinks were on the weak side and the food just didn't have the taste it once did. Last night we gave the... More

First of all you can't beat the prices for the food! My favorite menu item is the Browned butter and mizitra cheese pasta plate. Each meal is served with mini loaf garlic bread and a fantastic salad (try it with the house dressing). Ohh and spumoni included for dessert!

We had a very, very large party ... actually a tour group - 126, more or less which included three fourth grade classes, chaperone's, teachers, and guides, Consequently, this was a bit of a mixed bag of good and bad. Pros: 1. They have a great room at one end of the restaurant that can accommodate a party of that... More

They told us a few minutes but we gave up and ate at the bar. They said they only had one table that could seat five and someone was already at it. They told several other groups as well. From the bar we could see tons of empty tables including tables for 6. But no, they were only taking turns... More

On a recent rainy night we headed over here. Service was ok, but the staff seemed tired or uninterested. We needed to remind them on 3 separate occasions to bring the house special cheese. The food was the typically good, though the seasonal "special" of chicken and penne in pesto sauce was seriously lacking on sauce (it looked and tasted... More

OSF never disappoints - the atmosphere is fun, the food is cheap, and the taste is consistent. Our waiter was super friendly and the service was quick. Cocktails were strong - what's not to love here? (they have more than just spaghetti if that isn't your thing - something for everyone) We didn't know there was more parking on the... More

I haven't been here for almost seventeen years. I was so happy to have some gluten free options. The browned butter & mizithra cheese sauce is the best and I can't wait to go back to have it again!

We moved back to Sacramento and revisited the OSF on J Street to test the menu again. The menu has been updated and featured a gluten-free menu and my wife was happy. I noted that the amenities have been updated and the entire former railroad station has been nicely appointed with furniture, stained glass window, great flooring, etc. The food... More

My mother and I come to this place every few months and they never disappoint. Their garlic bacon pasta is spectacular. As well as everything else. It's very spacious and the staff are very nice and polite. It's also very kid friendly.
