service is the best part

The food is fine for the price and the standard you would expect from a chain and a family restaurant. The service is amazing. There is a Cuban waiter, Javier, that deserves to work on a five stars Michelin joint. He is an example of what his craft was in the old days when service matters. Thank... read more

The restaurant was quite empty. It was Wednesday at 9:00 PM. We were seated promptly and we ordered drinks which arrived shortly. We placed our food orders and waited about 30 mins for it to arrive. When it did, it was cold. We don't send food back so we ate it cold. I suspect it sat for a while before... More

You know something's not good if two of the tables around you are cluttered with leftovers that aren't picked up all the while we were having lunch. I expected better but was pretty much let down. To sum things up, just a blah experience. Nothing special in the food, nor the service and much less in the ambiance. These chain... More

Macaroni Grill is one of our go to' son Kendal Drive. It's usually busy but they've always had space for us. The food is good, the service kind and attentive and the atmosphere is nice whether it be for a business lunch with colleagues or a family night out.

I was surprised how empty the restaurant was. You always had to make a huge line here. Yes, it has been a long time I had not been here. The food was still good. The service was excellent. We enjoyed it!

We visited on a Monday at 2:00 for a lunch. Immediately we were struck by the over whelming stink of gasoline. A pressure washer was cleaning the floor of one of the food preparation stations. There were open food containers in that immediate area. I asked the host why this process was happening during a lunch period. He stated that... More

This has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years, but lately I notice that the food has not been as good as it was in the last couple of years. The restaurant appears to have cut corners on the size of the entrees as well as the wine. In the past, on the honor system, we had the... More

We had been there many times in the past and went with a group of 6 adults and 2 children. Our waiter was nice but lacked experience dealing with a larger group. When were first seated a waiter (not ours) handed one person in our group the silverware and told us to hand it out. Our waiter forgot the kids... More
