While the food is good (average) here, it just seems that most of their selections are breaded & fried. If you're going with a group, the food comes out in large platters and served "family style". So therefore it's hard to select a more healthy option, if there actually is one. The other food that takes up most of their... More

I usually love to go to Maggiano's for my birthday dinner, but this time I was disappointed. I think our waitress was working on too many tables at once and we were all having family style. We asked for another helping of one of the dishes with shrimp and it never came!! I had a taste of it originally, but... More

Great atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food. Substantial variety of food selection and very generous portions. Plenty of parking at the mall garage. A definite winner.

I was hoping this wouldn't be yet another chain that served food that tasted like it was served straight from the microwave. Unfortunately, my fears were confirmed upon tasting the chicken and shrimp dish with pasta. It was very salty and the pasta had no flavor. If you like fish, there's very little variety on the menu (salmon cooked 5... More

My husband took me here for my birthday! It was an evening about 7pm and the restaurant was not crowded despite being in a very busy mall area. We were seated right away, service was prompt and the food was delicious! He had lasagna and I had butternut squash ravioli. On top of it all because we ordered family style... More

I went once to this place and never returned. We had to wait for over 30 minutes to get our orders. There seemed to be no staff!!! Food was not the greatest and paid a lot more money.

I was recently a guest at a party in one of the private rooms, so my review is based on their catering alone, not for the restaurant. The bar was open, and the service was very friendly. There were 3 huge plates of appetizers served "family style", and then three lunch plates as well, plus of course, bread and dessert.... More

Went for lunch today. We are big Maggiano's fans but this was our first lunch visit. What a deal. I had the twofer deal which was choice of any two (salad, soup or half sandwich) for $10. Hubby had spaghetti and Meatball for $15 and he was given a lasagna to take home. Such a deal! And the food was... More
