“A bit over the top”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It's a crowded place, but it's also a big place, which can be fun. Portions can easily be shared. The waiters, by training I think, are a bit over the top - pretentious and artificially friendly. They constantly try to sell themselves. We ordered a cooked spinach side. When we didn't get it, a waiter told us that it had "taken a dive". He reordered it, and it came raw. On the third try it came out OK. He offered us cookies to apologize. Most restaurants would have just taken it off the bill Not good!

“Excellent food quality but crowded”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Food quality is consistently excellent with "abundanza." If you plan to go during peak dinner hour, please be advised to make a reservation at least a day before.

“If you'r not from NY, great Italian food”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Best Italian food restaurant chain I've been to. If we ignore for the moment good NY neighborhood Italian restaurants, the food was delicious and the portions generous. We went with a larger group (12) and the food was served family style.

That's what we expect from Maggiano's and they never seem to fail to deliver. We were invited to a dinner we couldn't decline on an evening when many local spots are closed. As usual there is just nothing exceptional I can ever find to say after a meal at any spot in this chain.
