Good is good here. Bar service is pretty good. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait, but overall good. Good lunch prices, dinner can be expensive.

Who killed the cook? Last time we were here the cooks (visable in the kitchen at the back of the restaurant) went on strike, walked out, the GM began trying to cook......there were 13 florets of garlic in my pasta...enough to fend off an army of vampires...we were laughing, food was not edible, comped our dinner (dinner?) and we have...

We have visited this restaurant 3 times in the last 18mos. Each time we were sorely disappointed. Server was great, but food was overpriced, overspiced and reheated (spongy). We have tried salads, appetizers, pasta & specials. Nothing good to say. The wine, however, was tasty and saved me from choking on our $90 tab (we - 2 of us -... More

This was the first time I had ever been to a macaroni grill thought I would give it a try. Service was good but the food was very average. I had the chicken marsala and the chicken was tender but the sauce was very bland like it came from a can. The noodles were very soggy from being over cooked.... More

I went to the Macaroni Grill because it was suggested as a good Italian restaurant. I was impressed at the speed of service although it was not real busy on a Wednesday night but as it got busier, that seemed to make no difference in how much attention we got. Do not recall what it was we ate but in... More

Was not impressed with menu options or prices. Much better options in the area for the same price or cheaper.

I have been to these chains periodically and the food was consistent. This location needs to revisit how they train wait staff. Felt super sorry for a new waitress who was thrown into a busy Friday night on her 5th day of work. It could have been an off night but it took a party of eight over 3.5 hours... More

Romano's always seems to have a limited menu to me and they also seem to have pretty heavy pricing. Maybe it's because Olive Garden seems to beat them at everything. This one has a service problem....wait staff often are an issue for us. We've had mediocre alfredo's......even had mushy pasta once. For extra money we expect something to be really... More

I was surprised by the many options on the menu, including gluten free pasta. Awesome appetizers- especially the macaroni and cheese bites with truffle sauce! Service was prompt and ver friendly. Ranges from casual to dressy.

Stopped to have a late night dinner without ever going to a Ramon's Macaroni before. Good food and not over priced. Nice Italian place. Very pretty decor.
