“Manga!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We found the food to be tasty and plentiful, the service to be friendly and attentive, and the overall experience to be tremendously pleasant. The prices seemed quite reasonable, too.

“Surprisingly good!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Normally not the kind of place I'd visit to eat, but tired after a long day and late start for dinner. Wow, what a refreshing surprise. The ambience, food and service far surpassed my expectations.

“DON'T GO”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We've been to this Macaroni Grill about 2 years ago and the menu and food were okay. We went there on Saturday, 3/9/13 and it was absolutely awful. The menu changed - much more limited. My son ordered the Lobster Ravioli, tasted like frozen "lobster". I had chicken under a brick. the menu said it was half a roast chicken leading me to believe it was a whole half chicken. Well, it was deboned and looked like the top had been skimmed off of the bones, leaving about 4 ounces of tasteless chicken. My husband has the worst eggplant parmesan of his life - three overcooked slices of eggplant with about a handful size serving of overcooked angel hair pasta.

I will never be back at this restaurant again!

“This Time It Was Great”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Although our experiences at this restaurant have been great and not so good, we continue to return as it's nearby and we take advantage of the special coupon offers when they are good enough. There is lots of competition in the area. We had the tappas this time and they were excellent. Our server, Mike, was exceptional. We need to ask for him the next time. We went when the there weren't too many customers and I think the service at this restaurant and most others suffers when they get busy.
