We've gone to this restaurant twice in the past month. The first time, it took awhile to find a parking spot, the mall was jam-packed after work on Friday, one would think it was Christmas (bodes well for the economy). The waiting area was full, we were told that it was a 25-minute wait, so we went elsewhere. The second time, I found a spot on the first row I tried - somebody was getting out just as I got to their location, nobody coming the other direction, life was great. Again told of a 25-minute wait, we stayed. We were two adults, but weren't offered to go into the bar to eat there, but I noticed that others did so, while still others gave up. Our wait was perhaps 15 minutes, a pleasant surprise, they might consider lowering their time estimates. We were shown to our table, a 4-person booth, and I noticed one or two vacant others in the vicinity. Our server soon arrived, wine bottle in hand, its landing not having the desired effect of causing us to order some. The table cover was butcher paper, the server using one of the three crayons she brought to write her name at the end of it. This particular server was excellent, very attentive and responsive, more so than others we've had there, who were average. The food was good, tasty, not great portions, prices on the high side, particularly when considering that salad costs extra. The Tiramisu dessert was good, but smaller quantity and more expensive than competitors. We had a gift card, which we forgot to use, remembering when we returned home. The question was: did we want to go back. We didn't. Mainly, we didn't want to put up with the crowds, and second, we could find similar quality food in larger quantities and lower prices away from the mall, where (Romano's) Macaroni Grill is located.
