Ordered the Lobster Ravioli. It was delicious! Servers were all very friendly. Clean restaurant. Service was a little slow for me when we were eating before 5 pm. Overall great experience.

For years Macaroni Grill was one of our favorite restaurants. The last few times we ate there; it wasn't near as good as it was in the past. I don't know if they have new ownership but it is not very good like it used to be. The service and the food were not that great.

We decided to come here as another popular italian restaurant had a wait of over an hour. We have eaten in one of these a couple of times in Houston and were really looking forward to our meal. It must be something about this city as this is yet another chain restaurant that we like that has turned out to... More

Three couples and a couple of kids went for Sunday lunch. We had to wait 10 minutes for table to be set up. Our drink order was taken and our food order was then taken. Slow but not too bad. But, then we waited and waited. So, we were in the restaurant for about 1 1/2 hrs. Most of the... More

We loved the food. The service was perfect. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. When we told him it was my sister's birthday, he said they could sing to her in Italian. We expected the usual..but, boy were we wrong! She sang so beautifully!! I don't know if this is something they have availability all the time or we were... More

Stopped here on the way home from the airport for an early dinner. Seated promptly. Service was outstanding. We both had the mama's combination plates. More food than we could ever eat but made a great lunch the next day. The chicken parm was among the best that I have had, crispy but not overdone and tender and moist on... More

Visited the restaurant with friends, awful service, waiter more interested in the bigger table next to us who arrived after us, simple things, no side plates for bread, no water refills, always an excuse, no tip, no wonder the chain is closing restaurants.

The food is just average, nothing special. The cocktails were expensive for this type of family restaurant and weren't very good. The shrimp scampi was very tasty and I love the bread.

We eat her a few times a year. The food is always excellent and the service is good. This visit was for lunch with the office staff. We allowed extra time so it was fine. They have the quick menu but if you order off the regular menu it will take some time. But it is worth the wait.
