I always find the noise level a little too high, but nonetheless enjoy going here. So much to offer on the menu especially with the take out pastas. Brought home more than we ate!

Food and service were wonderful as usual. Ate at booth in the bar and in the future that is where we will be. It was much quieter in the bar.

My husband and I enjoy eating at Maggiano’s. The food is very good and the eat one/take one pasta option is an added extra! I am very glad that I am able to make reservations, because it can be busy.

I have gone back several times hoping for a better outcome. Every other time it is decent, and everyother time it is a rough experience. This was a rough one. Maybe time to not go back. There are many other options now. And I am a gold level lettuce memeber. Love their restaurants.

It was a special occasion and noted on reservation but not recognized by restaurant. It was extremely busy, table was ready after our reservation time and our server was overwhelmed and didn’t provide very good service.

Service was terrible. Waited forever for refills on drinks and bread. Food came and some was cold. Then some food was missing. Server who brought food left before asking if we had everything. Then took forever for our waiter to come back and check on us. Lots of waiting time between him checking on us. Always needing something. Then the bill came and it was wrong. Again, long wait time to get it fixed and then again for him to come collect money. We pay too much for service like that.

Waiter didn't write down my order correctly and brought out the wrong meal. Husbands meal was then sitting at our table for 15minutes before I got my right dish.

There was nothing special about celebrating my Moms Birthday at Maggiano’s. Our reservations were not honored timely, our table was between two large groups of high schoolers enjoying their pre-dance meal and the wait service was in general slow and mechanical. Food was fine (what you would expect) but I wouldn’t expect it to take 2 hours plus for a few plates of pasta.

Overall, this was a miss for me, at least for this visit!

I took my daughter out for her 14th Birthday. I also put on our reservation it was her Birthday. Neither the hostess or waiter acknowledged it was her Birthday even after i told the waiter. We were seated at a small table for 4 people when there was plenty of booths open. We were never asked what we would prefer.
We saw 4 people receive birthday candles and desserts. One of them being a middle aged guy... Who im sure wouldn't of cared if he got his dessert. My daughter looked around waiting for hers. She never got anything.
Next... Our waiter was friendly but... First i only got 1 drink refill. Same with both my daughters. Our waiter came to our table at least 3 times when we had empty drinks.
My boyfriend got a glass of wine and decided he wanted to order a bottle. The waiter came back opened a bottle poured it in his glass. It was the wrong wine. We had to ask for the right wine.... We are by no means wine snobs but we like sweet wine and he served us dry wine.
Food was served and everything was perfect... Untill the bill came.
First we clearly asked the wine to be on a separate check. Yes mistakes happen but hidden in the charges was the wrong bottle of wine along with the bottle we ordered. And only one check.
The waiter fixed the check issue and we sat around for awhile thinking he would come to pick up the payment. He never did.
We ended up walking up to the hostess counter and paying. I will be going back because my daughter loves italian food.. I Just hope the service gets better... Im a easy going person and usually can brush off mistakes but when you go out for a $150 dinner you expect things to be pretty smooth.

At one time a simple Italian meal was not an expensive night out. I am happy to stay our meals at Maggiano's were very good + with an additional take one home. As someone retired on a fixed income it was good to eat and good to my pocketbook

my entree was brought out, then the waiter asked which entree did my husband order, told him, he left and the manager came over stating there is a glitch in the system when ordering that specific entree and it would be out in a bit. I was 3/4th done with my entree before my husband received his food. Seems that when the order was submitted it was only for my entree and not my husband's, then when they brought out my entree they realized my husband's wasn't ordered and had placed his food order at that time. We both had entrees that included a take out entree, since they had the 2 entrees already in a bag, when we got home, we didn't realize they were both the wrong entrees we had ordered for our take home entrees until the next morning when my daughter read the packaged entrees and found out that not only one, but both were wrong. Very bad experience, both for our meal at the restaurant and the meals taken home.

It started poorly with my wife’s meal not prepared properly. Had to get waiter take back and prepared correctly. No dressing on her salad, sauce for her chicken not right. Eventually all was made right, but it should have been done right the 1st time. Was disappointed. We go here 1x month and I’ve noticed little things going downhill.

One of the worse dining experiences I’ve ever had. Took 2.5 hours to complete the meal with waiting up to a half hour for anything requested. The staff was not apologetic, rude, and didn’t even offer anything to make up for the extremely poor service. Won’t be returning and definitely recommending to others to avoid this restaurant. I am extremely patient and still shocked at how poor this experience was.

We love the family meal. Service was so slow (it over almost 45 mins to get the anti pasta which requires almost no preparation). It was so painful we couldn’t wait to finish our meal and get out of here.

Maggiano's in Vernon Hills is one of our family's go-to restaurants. We love the food and service. The management is always great at accommodating our mom's deafness disability by putting us in a separate section than the noisier main dining room. It helps make our experience perfect. This time we had great service from Chloe but there are many outstanding service team members there. The only thing was we forgot our take-home pasta. Maybe next time. Highly recommend Maggianos.

We are a group of 5 women who like to meet for lunch every 4 weeks or so. This was the first time we tried Maggiano’s and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely table ready for us in a quiet corner and a marvelous waitress named Becky. She gave us all the time we needed to order, answered all our questions and prepared separate checks without being asked. The food was supurb and no one rushed us even though we spent almost three hours just sitting and chatting. Maggiano’s, you will definitely see us again!

I always enjoy Maggianos. Was dissapointed in the crab cakes. They were described as lump crab but tasted like it was crab out of a can and had the consistency of canned tuna. The apetizers and pasta were amazing so just stay away from the crab cakes
