For a chain, Maggiano's is not bad at all. The servers are prompt, nice and knowledgeable. Our server, a nice young lad,y hit it off with my daughter and convinced her to eat when I was having a tough time making the five year old quite talking and start enjoying.
I had the chicken salad and just loved the croutons. The tea was fresh and the prices were decent. Not a bad experience.

This was a busy Saturday night. When we walked in, there was absolutely no indication of where to go to check in. The four of us started on a hunt to figure out how to check in. I finally found a check-in station against a wall, surrounded by about 20 people who had no where to go. The restaurant was packed, but there was no where for people to wait. After being rudely told I was standing in the wrong spot (I was on the side of the check-in station, not the front, bad naughty customer), once I talked to the host, it took several tries to find our reservations. The name was scrambled , the phone number only had about 1/2 the digits correct. We had to scroll through all the 7pm reservations to find mine. Once we got our buzzer, we couldn't do anything other than stand there and wait. There was no way we could move as there was no place to wait. While we waited, we saw 4 other groups get turned away because their reservations could not be found in the computer. One poor guy was there with a large family, they had to leave and try to find another restaurant on a Saturday night.
After waiting about 20 minutes (within my tolerance rate), we were finallly seated. I did go back to the check in station to get the name of the guy at the check-in counter who couldn't do his job. This got the attention of the manager, who came to our table when our appetizers appeared. He was very apologetic about the whole affair, and felt really bad. The food was really outstanding, that is the only reason I gave them any stars at all, so I am torn as to whether or not I will return. I was there with just a small group of 4, but was also checking out the restaurant for an upcoming corporate outing. I'm not sure if I will return there. Perhaps during the week, but certainly not in the weekend, and certainly not when the same guy is manning the check-in counter. (I'll spare him the embarrassment of puting his name in the review)

Nice restaurant. Proper seating arrangement. Salads, Brick-Pressed Sandwiches are the most popular dishes. Service - Personal is very friendly. Clean restaurant. The atmosphere can be very romantic and at the same time a good place for kids. Waitress was doing a great job. I am vey much impressed with the restaurant.

I absolutely love this place. The food is excellent and family style is all you can eat. The salads are fresh and a great choice of salads. The fried zucchini is to die for. There is a large wine list. I never really let restaurants workers attitude affect my experience so I never really give it alot of thought. I think anyone working a low paying hard working type of job will get grumpy from time to time. Go there enjoy the food and enjoy your company and just smile at the hostess or host and realize they have a tough job..

We had a great time. Enjoyed the crab cakes a lot. Best part was it was Sunday and there was music out in the courtyard area and lots of things to see and do including the Farmer's Market. Waiter was super attentive and knowledgeable. Busboy and hostess were not very nice but when you smell that food, who cares? Bathrooms were clean and nice also, which is a must in any decent restaurant. We've gone back three times in two weeks and it takes us an hour to get there, so we find it worth it.
