Nice lunch after shopping all day at Ala Moana mall. Romano's Macaroni Grill offered several lunch specials and a full menu. They brought lots of hot delicious bread to the table with olive oil for dipping.

We have e a mushroom and feta pizza to start. Then the lobster ravioli, spaghetti bolognese (classic American - Italian) beef and pork mince and the steak and greens.... More

We each had a different entree and they were all very tasty. My surprise came when they did not honor the coupon and specials that the corporate office sends to their customers. The prices are higher then at other locations, but, again, the food is always great.

Had Christmas Eve dinner at the restaurant and all 7 members of the family enjoyed their dinner. Good food and good service. Had a mix up over our reservation but the manager got us in.

Came here during the holiday season for a quick meal. Wait time was reasonably short (15mins). Service was good. Food was alright. Had the shrimp scampi which tasted more like oil. Noodles were slight over cooked. Over all experience is average. Not some place to go out of your way for, or avoid.

When the only complaint I have is the wait, I think that says it all. Food and service were tops. We left a bag by accident and it was held and returned intact the next day. Losing it would have been a big issue for our vacation. Thank you to the honest staff.

My office booked the group room 2 weeks ago only to be 'trumped' by the boss' friends. Worst of all, the STAFF told us that the boss kicked us out of the private room that we RESERVED. Shameful behavior. Unprofessional and classless. Staff were removing plates before we were finished. I expected more from a chain. Never going back.
