My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here ... again! The food and service are excellent, and because the seating capacity is only 68, it is an intimate setting to celebrate any special occasion. She ordered one of their signature dishes, Veal Magnolia, while I chowed down on the Seafood Jambalaya. I also had a cup of one of their spectacular soups, which was properly served piping hot. And to complete the meal, their desserts are as scrumptious as their entrees.
In addition to dinner, Cafe Magnolia does serve lunch. I would recommend making reservations as seating is limited, but even without, this is one place not to miss.

Always a nice experience at Magnolia. Food is pretty upscale but prices are quite reasonable. Friendly staff. They usually have a wide variety of options, from steak to seafood. It is a gem in the Harrisburg suburbs.

Ate there last night, staff very friendly. Crab salad came out enough for two people. Very fresh tasting and nicley spiced. In town on business, second time this year eating here, will most likely try and eat here again when back in town in May of next year. The only downside was we were told the bread was held-up due to still baking. When it came out it was cold and tasted stale. Besides that I am a fan.

Went this past Sat. night. Place was flat out with virtually all tables taken. Is a BYOB restaurant and they provide free setups with no corkage fee!! Food is very good as is service. Place is noisy due to the crowds. Crowds are there because the place is that good. They do take reservations.
Worth a visit especially on a quiter night.

This was our first visit. The food was good, the service excellent, but the room we were in was very noisy with only 4 other people present. Hard ceiling, tile floor, small room just needs something to deaden the acoustics. We would have liked to sit outside, but the place was packed. We had the "wine lovers" appetizer only to find out there wasn't any wine -nice selection of cheeses and olives, but the olives could have been bigger and used some garlic in this reviewers opinion. BYOB (next time!).
