I could tell Maggianos was no longer a Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant. Selections are different and more selected. Food not as good. Bathrooms aren't monitored as they used to be. Has slipped a notch!

Friends outing

Dined 7 days ago

I liked the relax feeling. Our waitress never rushed us. The rigatoni with chicken sausage was outstanding. My friend had the eggplant. She loved it! We did the eat and take one home. My take home lasagna and her ravioli was amazing! It's such a great deal. Can't wait to go again!

Consistently Great Food & Service

Dined on April 24, 2016

Delightful late lunch get together with friends. They ordered the filet & risotto and I had the classic chicken alfredo with asparagus (with one to take home). Everything about our meal was pleasant and the attention we received was perfect. Always a treat to return to Maggianos.

I just love Maggiano's! Great food and excellent service. We ordered pastas with one to take home and our waiter offered to hold our take-homes while we shopped! Came back a couple of hours later, picked up our pasta and we were on our way. Couldn't believe he offered to do that for us. Will definitely be back, that's for sure!!

My wife and I did the dinner for 2 with classic pasta noodles and the girls go for the speciality pasta. Their dishes definitely tasted much better, more fresh. We will definitely upgrade to the speciality noodles next time. The appetizer of muzzles was excellent, also the tiramisu dessert, awesome!

We had a wonderful family dinner. A couple of us are on strict diets, but all were able to find something delicious. The service was excellent. Or server was knowledgeable, was not intrusive but available. We expected nothing less, but was still very nice.

Great gathering spot

Dined on April 21, 2016

Met some friends for dinner on a week night. It was very busy and noise level was a bit high, but we could hear each other. Really liked the glass of wine and liked that I could get a 6 oz. portion since I don't drink so much. The "Buy one to eat now, and one to take home" dinner for $14 is a great deal. Can't beat the value. And the food is really good!

Prix Fixe Dinner Value

vip
Dined on April 15, 2016

Maggiano's has long offered a fixed price dinner option featuring pastas. You got one to eat in the restaurant and one to take home. In addition, the dinner included salad and dessert. Now they have added a new feature. Instead of the pasta in the restaurant you can get the deal with a chicken entree for $5 extra. My wife and I chose chicken piccata and chicken Parmesan. This makes a big difference as now the take-home pasta is a completely different meal. And the chicken dinners come with pasta (spaghetti) so you don't give up anything. The chopped salads and chocolate cake are wonderful. Portions are large. We seemed to take home more than we ate!

Times they are a-changing

vip
Dined on April 15, 2016

This restaurant used to be known for its very large portions. That is no longer the case. I ordered a new item, vegetarian pasta or some such name. The number of vegetables it contained was paltry! Even the amount of pasta was not overly generous. I was going to say something to the waiter, but it was not worth making waves. I will just never order it again.

Steak undercooked

Dined on April 11, 2016

My friend's steak cooked "medium well" ended up being more red than my beef medallion's cooked "medium rare". According to my friend, he also mentioned that it was over spiced. Sharing this with our waitress, her boss approached us, asked for more details and apologized and said that his steak was on the house. (After almost being done with it and putting down the offer for another one that I assume would be cooked correctly). That was nice of them! But overall, good service and food!

Not as good as before

Dined on April 9, 2016

We have eaten here many times and this time the food quality was not up to par. Pasta was over cooked and the sauce was REALLY thick, like it has been sitting around for a while. The place was busy as always, but do they prepare popular items ahead of time causing the freshness of your meal to suffer?

Usually wonderful, but Friday night, not so much

Dined on April 8, 2016

Maggianos is a fav of mine; consistently good flavorful food and always some to take home. Service is usually excellent, but Friday night, they could not get the order right; things didn't come out at all, or came out in doubles, and we had to remind our waiter, server and manager about what was missing or not right. We were only a party of 3, but when they did finally bring one of the missing items, they gave it to the wrong person. I'll be back, but it was not their night; the food and service were not up to par. The service and coordination with the kitchen did not work at all actually. Finally, it was my friend's engagement and bday celebration, which was not acknowledged by any of the wait staff or manager. It was like they just didn't care on Friday night.

Dined on April 7, 2016

I live near Milwaukee but I drive to Old Orchard Illinois to find the nearest friendly and professional Maggiano's restaurant where they respect regulars and make new ones feel welcome. From the reception desk to the excellent wait-service through a fine meal, this is a fine example of customer care and personal attention that makes the experience most enjoyable. Old Orchard is on my list monthly or every six weeks for a professional meeting and in some six years I have never been disappointed. Given all that, they feature the same good Maggiano menu items that many of us enjoy.

Frequent dining points

Dined on April 2, 2016

We had the holiday bonus gift cards to use but needed about $15 more. I told them to use our regular frequent dining points but they said they couldn't do this. We dined at this same restaurant in February and the waitress was the one who told us to do it that way since you can't get change back from the holiday bonus gift cards.

First time in for lunch and it won't be the last. For days when I have a bit longer than an hour for lunch, I've discovered maggianos delivers a relaxing, fairly affordable option. I really enjoyed their salmon sandwich as an alternative to big bowls of pasta.

An Old Time Favorite

Dined on March 31, 2016

Maggiano's is an an old time favorite. Their light men choices are a welcome offering for many. However, my favorite dessert has been eliminated Profiterole. Tell them to bring them back. They do have smaller proportions selections in desserts which compliments the lighter menu offerings. Still a good value for your dollar.

We love going to Maggianos and were disappointed with the attention to service. Our entree was served before our appetizer. We were comped our appetizer but it still left us disappointed. We also were disappointed that there wasn't any holiday menu. We will make sure we research before we attend the restaurant for a special occasion.

Dined on March 20, 2016

My sister and I had a fantastic experience at Maggiano's. Our reservation was for 8:15, and we got there at 7:45. We were seated within 5 minutes. The waitress was extremely kind and attentive, and the food was amazing. I hadn't been to Maggiano's in a while, and I forgot how good their pastas were. I hope they add the special to the menu for good. I would go back for that one pasta. Drooling just thinking about it. Overall I give my experience a 10/10!

Best Pasta

vip
Dined on March 16, 2016

Maggiano's has the best value in the pasta dishes. I just love the spaghetti and meatballs, the portions are generous and you get another one to take home of your choosing. The Italian salad is also very good as are the flatbreads. If you can go during Happy Hour (3-6 weekdays), you can enjoy some wines for $5 a glass and the flatbreads for around $5. The service is always excellent! I have never had a bad experience and the food is terrific!
