AMAZING! – I love italian food and theirs is so good! I crave it all the time and I am always full and happy when I leave!!!
Who has a problem with Maggiano's? Seriously? – How someone could hate Maggiano's is a mystery. We've been more than several times, lunch and dinner, and each time was very enjoyable. Yes it's a chain, but for us has been rock solid reliable for food, atmosphere and service. It's a step up in quality from sister Macaroni Grill and the others on that tier, and you do pay for it. An enjoyable experience to unwind to. For apps, we like the fried zucchini in kind of a light panko-type breadding, the mussels (good sauce), the stuffed mushrooms. Entrees the linquine with clams (white sauce), the shrimp gnocci, steak salad, veal ravioli. Apple tart for desert.
We Won't Be Going Back!!! – We have now eaten there 3 times. My wife says it is like a "3 strikes" law for criminals. Our first time, the food was sub-par and we took a friend out for his 40th Birthday. The second time was with friends from Chicago who live here and swear by the place. The food was slightly better but still not great. Last night was our anniversary and my wife said we should give them another chance. OMG, her veal was as thick as a pork chop as opposed to a thinly sliced veal filet which it is supposed to be. The sauce looked like a brown, thick meat gravy and the taste was average at best. I had some pasta "D" dish which the waitress raved about. I do know what Al Dente pasta is supposed to be like with regard to taste and texture. This was not Al Dente. This was just raw pasta. We will not be going back there ever and I would NOT recommend this restaurant.
My Favorite Resturant – Maggiano's is my favorite restaurant.
Try the Veal Chops Contadina syle or the Filet L Forno style.
Simply the Best
Make a reservation or be prepared to wait a little. But it is WELL WORTH THE WAIT. – We have only had one not-so-great time here and we've eaten here plenty! Food is always delicious, portions are hearty and service, in most cases is GREAT!
We have been to other locations across the country and all have been wonderful.
