Our Waiter was very nice and accommodating, but I felt he needed some additional assistance. The manager was great, as we experienced some confusion about the menu and he resolved the issues.
The food was delicious; the staff let us stay for 3 hours and chat! The best fun!! Thanks again!!
We have eaten at this chain in many locations for over 25 years. The Friendship Heights restaurant was once a favorite and has now reached a point where we will not return again. We had four people in our party and every meal was dry and overcooked. The portions were very large but the quality was very poor. This is the second time in a row that the experience at this location was unacceptable so we will not return for a third attempt. A great disappointment and a real shame that the quality of the food has deteriorated to such a low level.
They are wonderful for an Italian comfort food fix!! Love them!!
Our reservations were late, 8pm . The service dwindled after 9pm. We waited at least 30 minutes plus for the ordered cake and then another 15-20 minutes for the check. The food was excellent as well as The waiters pleasant attitude. The 8pm reservation turned into a 2 1/2 hour excursion.
I've never been disappointed at Maggiano's. The fried calamari is the best I've found around NW and Bethesda. Happy hour is a good price performer. The wait staff is very accommodating with good morale.
Salads are great
We visited for our anniversary. Our server was Kecia.She was awesome and we will be back to visit her again!
We enjoyed a post-thanksgiving family meal here. The service was wonderful, as usual and the waitstaff was knowledgable. My one complaint was that the chef seemed to have a "heavy hand" with the spice level. I ordered the shrimp and grits and although it did not say it was spicy on the menu, it was spicy to the point of not being enjoyable. I did point it out to our server and she apologized, but did not offer anything in its place. We also did the take one to go deal and I found that the GF portions for the to go were "skimpy".
Came here for family thanksgiving dinner - spinach caesar salad was good, turkey was tender and the dessert chocolate cake is good as usual. However, the overall experience was below average. We were seated in a big party room upstairs with overly bright lighting and had an untrained server who apparently was not familiar with the menu. The tilapia tasted fishy and not fresh, the mashed potato side had a lot of BIG chunks of potatoes (one was literary half of the potato), other dishes were okay. We will never dine here for Thanksgiving.
Was very upset that I was not alerted to the special Thanksgiving menu when I made the reservation. Also, service was so slow that we owed $9 in parking.
Our family of 10 had dinner for Thanksgiving and I wouldn't do this again as the seating was very tight for 10 at the table for family style dining (passing large plates of food around the table). For a popular occasion with numerous parties, we waited for very long periods of time for the next course to show up and no one was attentive to replacing dishes when they were done (or even asking if we wanted more). We dine here at least 3-4 times a year but at this location for Thanksgiving, I wouldn't recommend it. (We've done it in Houston and in Orlando with no problem, though).
Food was just okay. The mashed sweet potatoes were homemade and tasty.
Great Thanksgiving menu and so much to eat! Rob, our waiter, was exceptional, and we enjoyed our entire experience.
Exceptional by every possible measure of enjoyment and pleasure!!!!
Wonderful and easy way to spend Thanksgiving with family!
The service and ambiance at Magianno's (and especially the service) is outstanding. the food may have left a little to be desired, however, the service more than makes up for it. And the "Today, and Tomorrow" pasta deal really is too good to pass up.
Butternut Squash Ravioli..very good!
Clean, beautifully appointed tables, excellent food.
Excellent service and delicious food. Perfect for a small group!
Delicious food and fantastic service!
Thanks the food was exquisite and the service was excellent.
Our server, Azarias, was great and very accommodating.
At the end, we had to wait too long to get our check. The table was too narrow to accommodate the people and food. We were constantly trying to make more room for the family style dishes. The majority of our experience was good though.
I had Butternut Squash Ravioli which is in season now. It was outstanding and so was the service.
Godfrey was a great server. They didn't have the first two fish options chosen by my friend. She ended up with the shrimp and grits and was pleased. It was a quiet evening, so I am thankful that the staff was very responsive and attentive.
I am sorrry to say that the food quality has declined since my last visit to the restaurant. The wait staff were excellent and very helpful when I told them my dish was burnt and not edible. The server immediately provided a replacement dish . I am not sure why the person delivered Ravioli that were clearly burnt to me but the server was very helpful
The food is average at best and the portion sizes are rather large. The dining room is very large.
Our server was very nice, but the others were running around so crazily and bumped into us a number of times as we tried to navigate the narrow aisles. Some were so rushed that they didnt even seem to notice that they just nearly knocked me over. I was actually concerned that my child would be hurt by one of them elbowing her as we stepped out to the restroom. Crazy!
Disappointing. Usually a go-to place for a group dinner out. Service was sub-par. Out of a lot of items. Just a little off last night. Drinks took too long to show up.
The service was very slow. One thing I didn't like was the server didn't write anything down...he had to come back to verify our order and didn't get the order correct. Also, I made a reservation for 10 but then called to change the number to 8; I gave them plenty of time to reset the table for less people or give me another table. 8 people at a table for 10 was awkward as the table was too big. The service and details have always been good; this time it wasn't. Get back on your game Chevy Chase Maggiano's!
Great lunch, our server Christian was awesome
How have I lived just a few miles from the Chevy Chase Pavilion location yet have never been to Maggiano's for dinner until this past Saturday? My husband and I loved the food and the service and the atmosphere (there was a wedding party upstairs) and listening to Frank Sinatra on the sound system. And was delighted when our waiter told us (after we asked for what we couldn't finish to be boxed) that we were also entitled to take home a pasta entree of our choice! Very generous -- and very Italian.
One of my favorites! It is always on the schedule while visiting the area. Online reservation system works great.
We usually love eating at Maggianos especially my teenage daughter. This time we treated my cousins for one of their birthdays and the service was very slow. We had to ask for the take home meal they did not offer it and they did not bring the lemon cookies for my cousins birthday as they said they would. We will go again because this was our first time being disappointed and the food is always good.
Maggiano's has good ambiance and background music and the food is pretty good; however, the service was very poor. Our server was very inattentive -- seemed like we waited on him instead of him waiting on us. He did not let us know about happy hour deals and neglected to fulfill part of our order when you buy two entrees, take two more entrees home.
The food was excellent, parking lot was not. The restaurant validates for 2 hours, we stayed 2hours and twenty minutes, which cancelled out their validation. Therefore the parking fee was the full price, not the overage. I won't be going back.
Always a solid performance. Marvin our waiter was on point
I love coming to Maggianos. The food is always on point, it's good. Service is great. Shi is great.
Our family goes here for birthday celebrations and other special occasions
The service is great, the food is plentiful, tasty, and reasonable, and the ambiance is 50's Italian New Jersey with Frank Sinatra background music, banquettes, and red velvet decor. Also, some of the entrees come with a free take home entree.
