I made a reservation I understand it’s a crazy busy night however. I won’t wait over 45 minutes past my reservation time.

Excellent restaurant to have your Valentine's dinner. Even though the restaurant was very busy. The staff was not overwhelmed. Service was top notch. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly we were served. But we never felt rushed. As a matter of fact the waiter said to us to take our time making our selections.

Valentine’s Day. We were seated quickly and had a wonderful waiter. Always love when the chef comes out to confirm allergies at the table. Food was served hot and quickly. However service did suffer following our entrees. Busy night and our waiter must have been overloaded. Deserts great and they’re attention to detail as well as valet service was great. Love this place!

I had a horrible experience. The kitchen messed up my food not once but twice. Then my table already finished eating so I did not want to eat without everyone else so they asked if I wanted to take anything home. You'd think they would have compd that meal. Nope. Service was just horrendous.

We come every year to celebrate my wife’s birthday. However, this year we felt rushed as a party of five, whereas others who sat before us were not at the surrounding tables. It was very noticeable by our guest. We were the only POC in the area which bothered us the most.

Steak was ordered medium rare came out medium well. They did bring out another one that's after we were almost finished eating. Had to ask twice for drink refill.

Excellent food! We went to celebrate my birthday. My husband and I and 2 boys ordered the Marco’s Meal for 2 (2 of those meals) and the food was amazing! We took our second meals home for Monday so I don’t have to cook! :)

I still like coming to maggianos but the last couple of times it wasn't as special. No one had asked about special occasions. Our food was not served together. We went out for our anniversary and still didnt eat together. That was disappointing. The excuse was a new coordinator.

I have gone to this restaurant several times and as usual the food was very good. However, for the first time I experienced service that was subpar. Two drinks ordered while we waited for others to arrive were delivered 1/2 hour afterwards and only when we were finally able to get the server's attention and remind her about the order. Once meals were delivered no one ever checked to make sure things were ok. Prior to meals being finished take home boxes were being distributed to the table. The server dropped her pen in one guest's meal. Dessert menu's were never distributed. The check when it came was never given to us to check accuracy. Credit cards were taken and the server left to charge the meals accordingly. Now I know this place can be hectic at times and the servers are usually busy with multiple tables, but never have I experienced service that I would call poor until this time. Plus there wasn't even a long line of people waiting to get tables.

Maggiano's is our favorite restaurant, we took family members there for the first time to celebrate a birthday. They were very impressed, enjoyed the family style dinner and really liked having the chef come out and speak with all of us. We had a great time and will most definitely be back. The service was superb!

Food and service were excellent as always. You go here because the food, service and drinks are never going to be an issue. In northern NJ we are lucky to have plenty of great Italian restaurants with fantastic food. Maggiano’s is not that. But it’s an excellent place to get together and eat good food for a reasonable price.

The maitre'd was good. The server was good. The food was good. The server got me extras of two free items. It took a little to long after finishing my entree for my dessert to appear. Other than that, timing was very good.

Chopped Salad was very good. Took a little while to get everything, but seemed that way at all tables. Not a place for a "quick bite." Everyone very friendly. Only downer was server didn't deduct my $10 first time visit coupon off. Noticed it after I got home when it was too late to mention.

My daughter requires a gluten free meal. This is one of the few places we trust. They are well-trained and knowledgeable on how to handle. The Chef will come to the table without asking.

Made reservations for 8:00 and still waited for over 10 minutes for a table. We ordered fried the zucchini appetizer, fettuccine alfredo and the stuffed shells with bolognese sauce special. I asked the waiter twice if they added cream to their bolognese sauce and was assured they did not. The zucchini was excellent. My husband's fettuccine alfredo was watery, but after stirring it around for a little while, it seemed to thicken up a bit, but was still on the soupy side. It was also very salty. I was expecting shells stuffed with cheese with a red meat sauce on top. What I actually got was dried out shells stuffed with some sort of meat mixture with a smooth red sauce that obviously had cream in it. I asked for a side of marinara to see if that would improve it, but their marinara tasted like something they poured out of a can, certainly not Italian marinara sauce. On top of that, the whole mess was too salty to eat. We were not charged for the stuffed shells which I sent back, but will not be returning for dinner.

Waiters are very overworked but they never complain and are very polite. Tables are squeezed together very tightly and the poor waiters have to walk sideways between them. I understand they want to make the most of the space but can't believe how crammed in people are. Is this even safe? We had a table of 10 and ordered family style. Food is plentiful! Service is very slow because waiters have multiple tables so be prepared to wait...and wait ---however that gives plenty of time for chat and they don't rush you out. All in all a good experience and with some tweaks from management, could be an amazing experience.
