The food and service here is always excellent! I really appreciate that the chef came to our table to discuss the food allergies I have. The only downside is they only offer one type of gfree pasta, would really like to get spaghetti instead of rotini in a spaghetti dish..

I took my mother there on Easter. Our waiter, Dominic was amazing and very attentive even with the Easter crowd. The manager was extremely helpful, courteous and made our time even better. Thank you for a great day!!

This is where we chose to have our Easter celebration this year. It was completely different from what we typically do, it was a great experience. The food was fantastic, the service was beyond great. The only thing we were a bit disappointed in was how closed in everything felt. We had someone in a wheelchair and it was impossible to get through the ‘aisle’ to our table without hitting into the back of several chairs. Once at our table people we’re constantly running into the wheelchair trying to get through.

Easter brunch was perfect for our part of 11. Service was attentive and the food, as expected, was delicious. And it was so nice not to have to cook or clean!

We wanted a delicious brunch for Easter and Maggiano's delivered! I was happy to see a special menu for the holiday that allowed us to eat family style and taste a variety of items. Our server was professional yet personal and very attentive.

My friend and I split a delicious spinach salad and the chicken Frances lower take calorie. Both were fabulous and the kitchen split both items before we were served. Exceptional.

We like Maggianos, food is always good. On our last visit to be honest service was poor. For example our drinks were not brought with our meal, we were half way through dinner before the wine we ordered was brought out (and we had to catch the server to request that she bring out what was ordered.) When it came time to pay for our bill, bill was brought out and it took about 30 minutes to process the bill... it would have been nice to be able to pay for our meal in a reasonable amount of time. I'm not sure if the servers were stretched thin but I'm hoping next time we visit Maggianos the service will be better.

Dinner reservations were placed for 7:15. We did have to wait 10 minutes past. Ordered side salads--the Caesar was very good. The Italian chopped not so much-heavy on the dressing, brown pieces of lettuce. The entrees were the stars of the experience--chicken parm was a nice presentation--crisp, generous portions of chicken cutlet with sauce, cheese and pasta. My birthday dinner was the filet mignon. served over an asparagus, shitake mushroom, orzo dish made with a wine sauce--absolutely delicious and cooked to order. I had ordered a side of the garlic mashed, and they arrived barely hot. I sent them back, and requested they be removed from the bill. So, overall a lovely pair of entrees, and the lovely bread plate with olive oil and parmesan. The kitchen management would do well to check up on every item that leaves the kitchen !!

I hadn't been to Maggiano's for lunch before and was pleasantly surprised! Not only was it a quiet setting where I could hear the person I was with, unlike other area establishments, the food was just as good as I have had at dinner. Our server, Becky, was the ultimate professional, polished and very attentive. I will be back!

This was not my favorite Maggiano's experience. We spent a lot of time waiting for the waiter - to get bread, to refill drinks, to place order.
He was very friendly and courteous, just not often around.
The food was really very salty (gnocchi)...almost to the point of being inedible. I brought much home and will add additional sauce, to dilute the saltiness.

The food is delicious 😋 My son always gets the KC Lobster pasta, my husband the shrimp scampi & I get the Frutti di Mare pasta! We go to celebrate our birthdays & love the lemon cookies they give us for our birthday celebration 🥂🎂
Also the Sangria is delicious, but too much ice! 🍷

Maggiano's Vernon Hills is an excellent Italian Restaurant. This time we ordered family style: calamari, big Maggiano's salad, Lobster special and crab cakes. Only disappointment were crab cakes, rest was excellent. Bartender can even make my wife's melon martini without instructions. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Reservations suggested, even though this time mid-day they were not too crowded. Family friendly, this time I counted five babies.

we had a work dinner at this restaurant -- reservation time etc were fine. we didnt have enough chairs at out table but that was remedied within a minute. no problem there. food was delicious and plentiful. only small downside was that waiter was busy but interrupted several times when the boss was talking but even that is not too big a deal....busy place so you have understand theyre busy too but then he also forgot we were celebrating a birthday -- just never happened. Again not a big deal.
