“Take the Kids; Leave Me Home!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Seriously, Macaroni Grill is an excellent choice for kids or adults who are starving...it's not bad and its variety of favorites makes it even better, but it's not a place for dedicated foodies!

“Not great!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

What can I say . . . it's a chain. Tastes nothing like homemade Italian food. Too salty, even the bread is salty. I would rather eat at home.

“Bad time”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

They even wrecked the salad by WAY over dressing it. Soup had WAY too much pepper. Worst lunch I think I have ever eaten. Will never return.

“The worst Romano's Macaroni Grill I have ever been!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

First of all, they forgot to give us the special season menu. The service was too slow even the kitchen and restaurant was not busy at all and full of empty tables. The dish were totally not our expect. I will never go there again. The other Romano's Macaroni Grill is much better than this one.

“Not as good as it used to be!”
Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

Been here many times through the years and after my last experience decided not to go back. The menu changed and the food was very basic. Not real Italian food!
