I ate here twice in a week, once because we have friends who were on leave and wanted American chain food and another time with a friend who needed to hit other stores in Desert Ridge mall.
In all, people in my parties had seven items off the menu. All the food was very good but not excellent. It is predictable, just like every other Macaroni Grill I have eaten at. If you are not familiar with it, it is chain restaurant pasta, consistent and good. Service was good, we got our food promptly and the way we ordered it. The waitresses in both cases were pleasant and knowledgeable. The pluses are the bread and the build your own pasta bowl. Portions are big, consider splitting or leftovers. It is in Desert Ridge Mall, which features poorly designed traffic flows. The road in was packed but the restaurant was not. Prices are reasonable and they give free crayons to the kids. Overall a four dot experience.
