“Small servings and too much up selling”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The bread was the best item we we served. We were totally annoyed by the waitress trying to get us to purchase wine, then appetizers, salads, dessert and finally to donate to their charity.

“Not bad, but not the best either.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was OK. Meat was tough and gristly, but pasta was good. Server suggested a nice wine that we enjoyed.

“Great pasta, great drinks, good service”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

If you haven't been here you have to go, huge plate of delicious pasta among other delicacies, a very good pour on the drinks, water keeps coming, bread and oil/vinegar is sometimes hard to get since you have to ask a server for it, they wont bring it automatically. I always leave with left overs. Wife approved!

“Great spot for lunch”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I am somewhat of a regular at "Mac's", lunch there with friends and work mates all the time. Fresh ingredients, nicely presented by a friendly staff. Great salads, incredible pasta dishes and creative sandwiches. Thursday is half price bottle of wine day!
