    My husband and I had a beautiful breakfast each. The roasted tomatoes were divine.. I could have ate a whole plate of them. Service was great also. Value for money also. We have been here quite a few times for breakfast and will keep going back. The only thing annoying was a couple who were at the next table did nothing but moan about the food and drinks they had and were a bit rude about maggies in general. Love this place

    Had a great night quietly celebrating my wife's birthday. The food (both starters & mains) were very enjoyable, not to mention topping the night off with delightful cocktails. Thank you to both servers who were very friendly & attentive.

    Excellent service from each member of staff. Before our food arrived we were offered to move to a more secluded booth. Which we appreciated. In first view of the menu we were a little surprised at the cost of the starters however we were blown away by the starter portion size it was worth every penny. The pate that my partner had was excellent and the sticky chicken I had was delicious. The chicken had a nice crunch and the sauce wasn’t too spicy but just enough heat to add a nice nip. For the mains the Thai chicken was delicious the sauce was lovely and the chicken was succulent. The Cajun crepes are the closest I have had in Kilmarnock since the “treehouse” crepe days. Chicken was delicious and the sauce was outstanding. All in all a great meal and the White Russians we had were great too. A little creamy and I would serve them in a whisky style glass but that’s just a personal preference.

    Amazing food only thing was we waited an hour for our food. Our table was wonky had to ask for it to be stabilised. Took a while to take our order once seated and when I requested the bill it took a long time too where I had to go and ask another member of staff .

    When we arrived a little early they showed us to our table straight away and took our drinks order and gave us 10 mins to look over the menu. Waitress came back and took order and when our food arrived it was nice and warm and tasted lovely. No complaints on the food. We had a few more drinks and then got our bill. When bill came I had to point out to waitress that it was wrong as the weee short of 2 drinks as only 4 on bill and we had 6 all in. Waitress thanked us for our honesty and said not a lot of people would do that but that is not how I work. We will be attending maggies kitchen again very soon.

    First time I have been at the restaurant and felt disappointed. Called before the booking to see if I could come earlier than planned, advised no due work commitments. Lady I spoke was very disappointed that she could not shut up early. Secondly asked for a coffee after meal to be told the coffee machine had been switched off. Clearly wanted home early and forgot about the customer needs. Very very unprofessional and it will be long time before I am back

    Visit here often and Never had to complain, but was so disappointed yesterday . There were 4 of us ,two guests got there main course and were finished their meal before waitress noticed the remaining two had not got their' meal, finally came and asked us if we were waiting for more meals which never should have happened. Waitress then gave us dessert menu's but forgot to come back to take our orders. So as nobody bothered to come near our table we paid bill and left... No discount was offered as we did not all eat together so not a nice experience. We were out having lunch as a family since losing our dad but left feeling disappointed with service

    Visited Maggie's for the first time in ages, due to illness. Sorry to say that we were deeply disappointed with Maggie's. On arrival, we waited for 15 minutes for someone to take our drinks order. Our meal was eventually ordered and took ages to arrive. We waited 25 minutes for our sweet to arrive, only to be told it would be another 5 minutes or so. We cancelled the sweet , paid the bill and left. The meal itself was good, but taking 1 hour 40 minutes to serve 1 course was out of order. Sorry Maggie's, won't be back.

    Disappointed in situation of table as I made the booking months ago. We were right through the furthest corner at the back. Food was superb however and service was good with an attentive manager who gave us free round of drinks as we did wait a while for our food. Maybe they took too many bookings for the kitchen to cope with? Would come back though and would request a better table.
