The young lady that served us was pleasant cheerful smiling and check on us several times during our dining, to see if we needed anything.

First time at the Macaroni Grill; pleasantly pleased. Food and atmosphere were great; server was forgetful. Really enjoyed the blackberry tea. Great alternative to a cocktail. Mama’s trio was exceptional! And the desserts were fabulous! Hot coffee with dessert would have a nice feature.

We left without eating! We had to wait about 10 min at the reception desk before it was recognized that we were there despite prior eye contact from staff. The restaurant was very empty but we were then told we had a 30 min wait. I informed the staff that we had reservations and we were seated. Looking around, we saw that many other patrons were without food. Concerned about time and the lack of service, we left. I will never go back:(

Food was great. Shrimp portfolio.
Place is scheduled for a remodeling that it desperately needs. I can't wait to see it return to the taken care of interior we have gone to since my kids were younger.
The staff were very nice. They are on need of more staff like everywhere else right now. Hence service was a little slower... so be kind.

Our waiter was very personable. The food was cold which shocked me. I ordered the chicken parm and it was ok. My sons chicken salad looked really good. The waiter forgot the bread but he did keep up with our drinks. I haven’t been there in over 4 years and I think I’ll wait another 4.

The food was exceptionally foul. No flavor, and the service was extremely slow. Our waiter had 3 tables the entire time we were there and we could only get a refill once on our drinks. The bread came out after the appetizer and tasted disgusting.

The restaurant was fine and the service was fine. There were very patrons on a Friday evening and it quickly became apparent why. The food has gone way downhill. Mediocre at best and served lukewarm. It’s a shame because it used to be a great place to go.

Very disappointed. Wait staff was rushed and hurried, and it was not even busy. I expect that kind of nervous hustle in a diner, not Romanos. The prices are up, the menu selection is down, the kids' favorite memory, crayons on the paper tablecloth, was not even offered. Disappointed and will not be back

Severely understaffed. The service is lost. We were seated and then ignored for 25 minutes, except for a brief statement by a waiter saving he'll be rift with us. Once someone finally came by they rushedly took our food orders. Never asked if we wanted something to drink other than water. My food was burnt, but I was so hungry by then I ate it anyway. Another place to never visit again.

The food was delicious. You don't have a rating high enough to cover the service. Even though they were short staffed and our server, Nick, had a minor injury, he was prompt and very friendly. My date and I had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

Very nice experience. Food was very good. Had Carbonara. Not a lot of flavor and it was extremely dry. Carbonara gets that way but this was EXTREMELY DRY. Ordered ricotta meatballs. There was Rosemary in them! Hate Rosemary. Salad was fresh and yummy. Order the fried mozzarella. Excellent.

Food was decent. Brussels sprouts were plentiful. Waiter was more interested in socializing that paying attention to what we requested. Had to request some things that are normally offered without request. Had to request one thing 3 times before it was delivered. Waited on check for at least 30 minutes and got up to leave before it was delivered. And the restaurant was not busy!

It took nearly 7 minutes before being greeted by our waitress (and were one of only 5 tables she had). We were there for dessert only and their menu was not recent with what they were/weren't serving, they only offered 3 out of the 7 items listed on the menu (1 was sold out, the others were no longer being offered) and the cheesecake I ordered was supposed to come with "fresh strawberries" and instead was served with a condiment cup of strawberry syrup.
Overall, we were both disappointed with the experience and it will be a very long time before we try going back.

I am sure plenty of people have good meals there, but ours was terrible. The service was slow, and actually she forgot about giving us our check by the end of the meal - her admission. Our food, which clearly is mostly premade, was terrible - over seasoned, unsalted, overcooked, or just poorly made. And the cost for pasta dishes is outrageous. Pasta dishes, might I add, where the pasta was overcooked. I would not recommend going there.
