On this occasion, it was just myself and my mom for lunch. We always get the 3 Course Lunch. It's $10.50 per person (Monday-Friday 11am-4pm) and you can't beat that. You start with a Mozzarella Fritta (parmesan breaded mozzarella with arrabbiata sauce). It's crispy and delicious. Next comes the Caesar Salad (romaine lettuce, imported romano, creamy caesar dressing). The lettuce... More

We were not wowed by the restaurant, but it was OK. My meal was pretty good, but service was slow even though they weren't busy. I would probably go back, but I wouldn't go out of my way to do it.

We hadn't been here in a couple years. At first, we were dismayed because our table settings were dirty. We had to return two napkins that were stained and a small plate that was not clean. We also noticed the menus and seats have crayon marks all over them. The gaggle of servers (about 8) chatting around the hostess stand... More

I was on a business trip and needed dinner. I remember going to Macaroni Grill years ago and enjoying the experience. Not this time. The waiter seemed visibly upset that it was just me at the table. He couldn't wait to take my order and he was very hard to find during the meal. My chicken Marsala was extremely ordinary... More

It's been awhile since we visited Romano's Macaroni Grill. The service was slow and it took our food some time to be prepared, however, it was good. There was a noticeable lack of help this night.

We had a reservation. Saturday night. They stuck us in a back corner where the AC barely worked and the booth configuration made it almost impossible to slide into our seats. No server came, and I went to ask for service. It still took a while. Then no water, no bread, no drink order. It took a very long time... More

I used to love Macaroni Grill. It used to be one of my go-to favorite restaurants in the area, but it seems to have really gone downhill. The service was okay, but there's was practically no one in the restaurant, which should have been a red flag. With no one in the restaurant except a few, I found it odd... More

I've never had a bad meal here.The menu is not just Italian....there are seafood and steak options along with pizza, of course. The surroundings are nice, the prices are reasonable, and they do have a decent wine list. If you're going soon after July, 2016 I recommend Duckhorn's Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon, vintage 2013. A nice bottle of wine at a... More

Atmosphere Italian restaurant with bar, good location and parking. Complete with interesting warm cozy atmosphere. Menu is mostly pasta dishes with variations of seafood, meatballs, and very tasty. Our waitress kept us busy with fresh baked bread that we dipped in olive oil and spices while we waited for our meal. Food portions are large, you get more than you... More
