Over priced wine and food. All food portions are reduced in size. Had a 7:00 reservation however we did not get seated until 7:25. We checked in at 6:30 knowing we were early. Another couple checked in at 6:55 for a 7:00 reservation and were seated before us. Our server was very nice. The wine special was a Malbec which was definitely watered down. Asked for a new glass and waiter stated he even tried the wine from the bottle and something was wrong with it. Got a Barolo instead which was just okay. Husbands wine was 18.50 a glass which is outrageous. This place is totally over rated and has gone down hill tremendously.

Food was disappointing, especially the tilapia. Asked for a margarita, it was terrible, but they didn't charge us for it. Even though it's not a Mexican restaurant, the bartender should know how to make a decent margarita.

I'm never disappointed at Maggianos. The service, staff, food and atmosphere are always top-notch. I had their Gnocchi with Italian Sausage which was excellent. My wife had the Lasagna which she loves and finished the whole plate!

My husband and I took my son and his two teenage daughters for my son's birthday. Ramon was our server and was truly amazing. It was our first time there and he answered all our questions and so friendly. The food without a doubt was fantastic! We will return.

Though the food was excellent as always, the service this evening was outstanding. Picking a weekend dinner time frame, on homecoming weekend, one might expect a reduction in attentiveness. That was not the case. Our server and busing was very timely. In addition the chef came to our table to confirm our special dietary request and provided options for a member of our party. Overall for a busy night an exceptional dinner experience led by exceptional service.

SERVICE AND FOOD here are always excellent. Don't order the lower calorie fettuccine alfredo, though! Not pleasing at all, because it's so vastly different than the traditional recipe. Can't beat the 2 for 1 dinners.

We go to the Vernon Hills location often. We went this time a bit after 3, when it's less crowded.
Our server was Jason, who always recongnizes us and his service was very good, always with a smile.
We had the stuffed mushrooms, the chicken francese and the Chef special salmon w shrimp dish.
All were very tasty.

First - not only did i put this dinner was for a birthday on the open table reservation, i also mentioned it when the girl called to confirm we were still coming on the day of (9/19/18). I said, I hate leaving the table to mention its a birthday so if you could tell the staff - "no problem". Now unless they don't do a small cake or recognition in any way then fine but dont ask for an occasion on the reservation. We didn't get as much as a happy birthday.

Second, the chopped salads were so over dressed they inedible. Had it not been a la carte i wouldn't have minded but paying $7.00 per salad was not too good. Both the Lasagna and the Chicken Saltimbocca was horribly salty. The problem we had is we could have complained, but we all met from different directions and had a later reservation, by the time we all got there it was close to 8 and we didn't not want to wait for new food. But I did want to let them know in the dissatisfaction we had with both the birthday (or lack of ) and the food quality.

I haven’t been to Maggianos in years. Food is good but not like it used to be. Portions are much smaller now. It is more like an upscale carrabas. I used to consider Maggianos to be decent Italian food. Under Lettuce Entertain u, I can tell it has changed. I now have to question if lettuce entertain u is still good.

Very nice. Had issue with the Denver steak, though. It is very hard to find a properly cooked medium-well steak. Had to send it back, and it still wasn't medium-well when it returned. Seems to be an issue for a lot of restaurants.
