We asked for a booth and pointed to an open one, she said no, that one is for more people. Hostess started to seat us at a booth right by the kitchen, which was super noisy and we were not even seated yet. We Asked to be seated somewhere else, and they put us in a booth where the sunset blinded me through my salad and half my meal. The booth we originally wanted remained vacant the entire time.
Service was fast and food was delicious. Upgraded shrimp in my fettuccine were quite small for the up-charge.
Thought that when my husband informed server it was my birthday, that something special was going to happen. Not the case.
Ordered dessert, which was also very delicious

Great staff, always helpful and accommodating. They very kindly accomodated us showing up 20min prior to our reservation, and had us seated about 5min after we arrived.
It was also a bday celebration, and they gave us a complimentary dessert, so sweet! (Literally and figuratively)

Celebrated my husband's birthday with our entire family. They can handle large parties with ease and the food is always consistent and reliably good. Nice wine list too. Our entire party each loved their entree. Desserts are delicious too. They recently added something called butter cake which arrives warm and delicious. Wait staff is very competent. We really enjoy coming here.

Best Maggiano's. Incredibly polite and attentive staff. Even minor mishaps were comped immediately. Great value being able to choose extra food to take home, too! Family of five bill was under $100 and tons of leftovers for at least two more meals.

Even with a reservation we were unable to be seated until 30 after our reservation time. We were told it would be 5 mins upon arrival. 10 mins later and we were told they were clearing our table. I don't appreciate lies to just diffuse a situation. I was ready to leave, but my out of town guests were hopeful that we would eat soon. Manny one of the Chefs were very kind and did all he could to help. He was the only staff that tried his best.

It took a while to even get a glass of water. The manager did come over to see if we were taken care of since we were sitting with our menus and no drinks for a while but the waitress had just come by to take our drink order. Someone dropped bread off at the table but we still didn’t have anything to drink for several more minutes. We later found the waitress was filling drinks for several tables at a time which she left at our table (with some of the drinks) while she delivered to the other tables. We figured she was new but would think the manager would have followed up after he asked us the first time.

The staff did a nice job of recognizing our anniversary.

Definitely have trouble with service at this location. We waited an hour for our dinner, and it arrived cold. They never brought my husbands drink and burned the meal in the microwave when they warmed it up. Forget to put dressing on one of the salads. We ordered a gluten free entree which came with regular side of pasta...The manager said he would reorder the burned entree which was served after we finished so we took home the extra. Over all, a calamity... and not really that busy... they offered to discount the dinner to make up for the evening but actually should have been free! I doubt we will go back

This was the first time at this location. Others have always been good to excellent in the past. Service this night was slow and disjointed. The kitchen missed sending out the sides and the meal was half eaten by the time that they made it out to the table.

We went family style for 12 people for my daughters birthday. All the food was very tasty, served hot and by friendly staff. Go hungry because you get a lot of food! But, for the price per person, you better get a lot of food.

We had a problem with our waiter not getting some of our orders right. After a disagreement between him and one of the people in my party, management wise wise in supplying us with a different waiter. After that, everything went extremely well.

After the meal, which was quite delicious, one of the chefs came out to see how we were doing. Once he discovered it was my birthday, he sent over a glass of champagne in my honor. Very nice!

Maggiano’s provides many options, so that everyone in your party can find something to eat. Servings are large, and small dessert and lighter fare options are appreciated. Service was a problem this visit as all meals were not completed at the same time. In fact one dinner was completely forgotten! Standard and reliable restaurant, but not as high quality and as imaginative as other restaurants nearby.
