We were excited about going to Macaroni Grill for lunch on Valentine's Day because we hadn't been there in many years. We arrived at noon and it wasn't very crowded, probably because people were going out for dinner on Valentine's Day and not doing lunch. The atmosphere was cozy as I had remembered it and it felt like it was... More

I was there for brunch on a Sunday and the menu was great. They also offered $2.00 Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's. The hot bread was served with olive oil and spices, it was delicious. I ordered the breakfast bruschetta skillet and it was wonderful. Our server was fantastic and I will definitely return.

I had scene a lot of commercials for the chain on tv while on the east coast, but had never tried until here. I was expecting a better menu. The food was good and I like the metal dishes it was served in, different. But if I'm going to pay for higher end Italian food then there are other places... More

Had the Chicken brick. Boy, it tasted like brick. More like cardboard though. It had no taste to it. The potatoes were hard and didn't seem all the way cooked. Altogether not a great meal.

I don't know what's happened here. We went at lunch on a week day. We ordered one of the items off the lunch menu, so it shouldn't have been too difficult. The service was extremely slow. Nobody ever cleared any dishes away. Our waitress had many tables to cover - too many, too spread out. What was strange was that... More

The atmosphere and the food aren't bad, but the service is terrible. Took two hours and they constantly had to ask what we ordered and what we were missing. Had to ask for the check three times.

Ten years ago I would go out of my way to find a Macaroni Grill. We arrived at noon on Saturday and had our pick of tables/booths. The condition of the facility was the first thing I noted. The front door was worn and presented a poor first impression. The restroom fixtures need replacing and cleaning. Service was average/okay. I... More

Ate here out of nostalgia. Was in town for a conference, and had many good memories of eating here with family and friends several years ago. Also, the Macaroni Grill in my town closed several years ago...so I miss the menu. Service was spotty. I wasn't in a rush, but there was no reason for my experience to take as... More

We used to really like Romano's, but what used to be great service and great food has declined to good food, but lousy service. If you go, and order an appetizer, do not order anything else, or you will receive your salad and entrée at the same time, and that twice now has been before we finished our appetizers. The... More
