“Reservations don't count! Management doesn't care!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Made reservations through http://opentable.com for 14 to celebrate a birthday and upon showing up was told to wait for table to be prepped. Waited 20mins and then inquired about table and was told that it was almost ready. Waited another 10 and again was told that the party at the table had paid but was still seated. Over 35mins later still couldn't get a table and decided to call Wild Fire (restaurant in the same mall) and was able to get a table from them since they were willing to put tables together to accommodate. Maggiano's could care less and just expected us to wait without being able to provide a solution. I realize that we had a large party but that's why I made reservations! This place used to be a decent semi upscale eatery but now is just a glorified Olive Garden!
Not going to be wasting my time or money ever again.

“Good food; inconsistent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

I really like Maggiano's. The spaghetti with meat balls is a top pick, and the portions are generous. You'll have left overs unless you haven't ate for a few days. The classic pastas are an excellent value. With one of the classic pasta selections, you'll get a complementary meal for tomorrow (packaged nicely!). A word of caution: Go early or make reservations. The dining area can get really crowded in the evening, so if you're looking for a quiet dinner try somewhere else. It also seems as though there's a lot more tables than servers manage them. Of special note, Maggiano's offers a 50% military discount, which is rare in the restaurant industry (or any other industry). If you're not in uniform, you're rolling the dice as to whether you'll actually get the military discount. As for myself, sometimes I get the discount and sometimes not. Either way, I'm glad Maggiano's is such a big supporter of our military.

“First time here, meal was average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

I was excited to try this restaurant for the first time, but my meal was just average. The waiter also messed up the order, and was not that good.

“Nice decor, food is just Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Love the 1940's decor in the place, it has a cool atmosphere. However, the food is really not as good as Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill, but the price is much higher. I think you pay for the location and pretty space, it's like any restaurant with a nice view and mediocre food. It get's by on it's good looks.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

typical chain fast food, frozen meals, thawed then microwaved! service was terrible, waitress couldnt even open a bottle of wine, never returned to check on us, had to flag down another waiter just to get some help. After talking to the manager, he took care of our bill and was given a bottle wine. He couldnt have been more decent to talk to, its a shame he is there and not at some high end restaurant.
