I had in the notes the dinner was for my wife’s birthday. I didn’t say anything to anyone because I wanted it to be a surprised. When dessert was ordered I was a bit disappointed that the note was overlooked and no happy birthday was sung to my wife.

The food is absolutely delicious. I am a frequent diner at Maggiano’s & they never disappoint. The family style option ensures you are genuinely satisfied by the end of your visit.

Always very good food...not cheap but large portions and a free pasta dish to go if you choose a pasta dish to eat.

We always enjoy the food and service at Maggianos until this week. Our server was friendly but not as efficient as servers in the past. We had to keep reminding him about items that were ordered. You really shouldn’t keep a five year old waiting for her ice cream treat!
Also, the Eggplant parmigiana was hot in the center but cool on the edges. The rest of the food was fine.

This is my last time with open table - I am Deleting my account.
For some reason I was told at the restaurant that my reservation was moved to 7:30pm. They said someone called - which we had not, it was blamed on inter system interaction between opentable and Maggiano.
Then they seated a couple of parties without reservation ad we were asked to wait.

The manager did well to ensure we were taken care of and we appreciate his effort.
The service was slow.

I am a big fan and frequent customer - brought a guest for her first time - she was delighted. We are both pretty good Italian cooks in our own homes - I never worry about ordering any dish here at Maggiano's - it is always delicious and authentic Italian food - high quality and good portions. The ceasar side salad was enough for two - had the beef medallions yum - the special butternut squash ravioli was delicious - didn't need the sundried tomatoes added on top as the subtle butternut squash and great pasta stand on it's own - apple crostada excellent as usual and the cherry crostada was also very good. We took home a free Mom's lasagna and it was excellent the next evening!

A birthday day at one of our favorite places. The food here is always good but this particular evening, it was outstanding. We love the chopped salad which I find unique here. The serving was very generous and there was enough of the goodies...prosciutto, blue cheese and avacado. Entrees were veal parmigiana, three large pieces with spaghetti that made a lovely lunch the next day. There was a special of butternut squash raviolis with a butter sauce, sun dried tomatoes and hazel nuts...wow! I ate the entire plate it was so good. Excellent service by Omar who brought a plate with some chocolates and strawberries to make my birthday special.

Disappointed with this location- food was ok- lukewarm. Had to wait about 10 minutes before our waiter came over and greeted us and poured waters. Not up to typical Maggianos standards. Would not go to this location again.

I requested a booth, it was my grandmothers 86th birthday, they went to seat us at a table. I then said we requested a booth, the hostess huffed and puffed and then sat us at a
Booth. The Valet service was terrible, we ended up waiting outside in the cold with my grandma bc the car was suppose to be waiting for us after we texted them.

It was a typical evening at Maggiano. The food is consistent, nothing special nothing terrible. Alex, our server after a slow start exceeded our expectation with his excellent service.

Normally, I'd rate Maggiano's - Bridgewater with a 4 or 5 star. But not last Sunday, 9/29/19. When making my reservation, I specifically indicated "low or no salt". When the server asked about any allergies, I again mentioned to please prepare my dish with low or no salt, because of my high blood pressure problem. When the entree', Chicken Manicotti, came, I could taste the salt strongly. My entree' was one of chicken and spinach. Not only was it salty, "Where was the chicken?" I felt like I was eating chicken powder with spinach in a baked batter and a lot of salty cream all over and around it. I kept trying to get the server's attention, eating slowly, but he stopped by only when I was more than halfway into the entree' because of my hunger. My wife felt I should've ask for another entree', but by the time the server came, I didn't bother, not wanting to wait another 1/2 hour. For the first time, I was disappointed with my meal and couldn't eat all of it. I worked just opposite the Bridgewater Maggiano's for years and always loved going there regularly for lunch or dinner. But on this occasion, which was my birthday, I was sorely disappointed. Our appetizer of stuffed mushroom was yummy! The server was kind enough to put 2 candles on my desert. Hence the reason I rating this a 3 rather than a 1 this time.

We were seated promptly and enjoyed a delicious appetizer of fried calamari then for dinner we both got the steaks. Everything was cooked to perfection and the waiter was attentive and friendly. We always come here for a birthday dinner and look forward to next time.

Having eaten here about 30 times over the years we were expecting a solid meal for a good price. However when my wife’s dish was served, she informed the waiter that the meal tasted off and that it smelled like the cheese was bad. He actually fought with her that she was wrong and that everything was “wonderful “. Needless to say we will not be back.

We were really disappointed with the service. Our server seemed very disconnected and was not helpful. We are a mixed family and felt like she might have had a problem with our setup. It was really disappointing and we probably won’t go back because of the way she made us feel.

Four of us met for lunch. We hadn't seen each other for a longtime. We were seated at a comfortable table without having another table right next to us. The menu and food was delicious. We spent a lot of time catching up and we did not feel rushed to leave. It was a great lunch and atmosphere. We will certainly go back again.

Food was good both taste and value. Our service was subpar. Waiter took our order and we never saw him again until we chased him down for check. Also we got the wrong food to go.

We ordered the family dinner for 4 people. No complaints about portion size (huge), variety ( something for everyone) or service (Carmen was terrific). The food was tasty ( enjoyed the chopped salad, stuffed mushrooms, chicken Parm and veal Marsala). Not crazy about the mushroom ravioli or the Tuscan chicken and shrimp dish. It’s also very difficult to maneuver the large serving dishes around with the other plates, water glasses, drink glasses etc. We enjoyed our meal as a group, we were promptly seated and served, and the valet parking was a plus. We going to need some time,though, to digest all that food
