We went for lunch. At about 2P the (usual, cavernous) room was mostly empty, maybe a dozen people total. We ordered a bottle of 14 Hands Merlot and Jenna, our server, after much checking, reported that they were out. We opted for the house red blend which, it turns out, was as expensive as a name brand bottle. Oh well.... More

After shopping in Burlington, every restaurant was extremely busy so decided to go to Macaroni Grill. Had been before with another couple & had not been impressed, but decided to give it another try. Not very busy, which should have been a sign. Sat at the bar. The server was friendly & provided good service. I had Chicken Piccata &... More

My two sisters and I met here for lunch on a recent Sunday. Each of our meals was quite good. The service was very responsive and friendly. Great bread for dipping. Wonderful pasta. Good choice!

Excellent wine, great grilled lamb chops, shrimp portofino, chicken parm; best calamari in ages; Waitstaff spread too thin on a sparsely occupied Friday eve. Had to ask for water refills, and some plates were whisked away before all were finished.

This is an excellent restaurant offering great Italian Specialties. Both our dinners were well prepared and tasty! Service was solid and prompt. Located across the street from the Burlington Mall, it sites on top of the hill next to motel.

I came here for a decent macaroni and cheese but they don't even have macaroni but penne. I believe the name of the place to be misleading. The food is average and my companion complained that the amount of seafood in the pasta was low. The server said they would see what was at the bottom of the freezer. Not... More

Menu choices limited. Food average, I ordered chicken Parnassian with Fettucine. Order was slow coming and was not hot, only warm. It was 11:30 AM restaurant only had about six other patrons. Service was slow.

One of the great things about a quality chain restaurant is that you can always depend on a quality experience and Macaroni Grill is no exception. The menu is basically the same in every location and with Macaroni Grill that's a good thing. I love the Fettucini Alfredo and knew that would be my choice when we headed there for... More

The restaurant was empty(it was a Monday night)..ordered the porchini mushroom ravioli and my daughter ordered chicken farm..both seemed old and sat in the window. Bread was stale. Had to ask for the House Wine (not on menu). Decor was cute and nice touch with paper and crayons to draw with. Server was attentive

We remember when this was a great place to dine. Sadly we found it in dire need of refurbishment...the bench seat in our booth was ripped open in two places! Our server commented that they aren't repairing it now because eventually they will renovate. The food was just not good including the dessert where the chocolate cake was dry and... More
