“Good food and great service.”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We tried this out as we do not have this restaurant in our area while on vacation in Kissimmee. We were pleased with the experience. Got there just as the place opened, so no wait for seating. Our server was very good and took our order and bought our drinks and the homemade bread quickly. Kept bringing the drinks and bread thru the whole meal. One of the neat things is that if you buy a bottle of wine, you can sign it and leave it on the shelf for display. Not sure how often they rotate the empties, but some are there for several years. (Took the time to read them while waiting for meal.) Portion size is good and the quality of the food is very good. Great fresh dishes, not pre made especially the pasta. Our bill for the four of us (2 kids) was right at $50 with tip. So it is indeed reasonable. Only draw back is that if you want extras, like salad if it doesn't come with your meal, they are just that, extra. Menu is available on their site so you can get an idea of what they have and price before you go.

“Very Poor Service”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

The food was good but our waiter Maverick was terrible. He lavished his attention on a party of six but did not come over to our table of two even to refill our water. When we were ready to have our food boxed up, we waited half an hour before my husband finally got up and spoke to the hostess. We are usually generous tippers but not that night. He didn't deserve the $5 we left him.

“Delightful lunch”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We had a delicious lunch ordering from their special soup and salad combination menu. The waiter was personable and efficient and the restaurant was much more quiet than many restaurants. Even the Italian music with Sinatra and Martin was more pleasant since it was not blasting your eardrums.

“Favorite place to eat in Kissimmee!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

I have a second home in Kissimmee FL (thanks mom and dad!) and when we are here, we always have at least one meal at this particular Macaroni Grill(please fix the spelling of the name on your site).
The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is excellent. On this visit, our server was Matthew. Every restaurant should have someone like Matthew working for them. He was personable, attentive, and most impotantly, he knew the menu.
My husband had his usual Chicken scaloppini which is always delicious. This time I had Parmesan Crusted Sole. I never order fish out, but I was glad i did! It was perfectly breaded and browned, and the butter lemon sauce with capers was the best i've ever tasted. It came with a scrumptious side of orzo, made with sun dried tomato.
I will always eat here and it is my favorite of all chain restaurants.
