Maggiano's - Chevy Chase
Wonderful family style option. Great menus choices and the food and service were outstanding!
Despite the restaurant being almost completely empty, our service was extremely slow. I had to ask for a refill on tea and didn't get it until our meal was done. The restroom was filthy and given that we were there at 11:30 when they opened, it was obvious that the trash had not been emptied from the previous day. It was overflowing and smelled really bad.
We not only enjoyed our food but the service. The restaurant accommodated our every need including presenting a member of our party with a birthday cheesecake. Wonderful!
Service was unprofessional and slow. Server repeatedly apologized for the service. He failed to listen to complete order before running off and disappearing. Very frustrating. That said, he seemed like a nice young man — just not trained as a professional server.
The service was terribly slow. It obvious that my table had been forgotten by our waiter several times. Things as simple as an extra spoon or a refill on water were nearly impossible all night. The food was great but the service was horrible.
I come as often as possible. I love the food, service, just everything.
It was my girlfriend (extended) birthday celebration.
Our waiter named Moe is absolutely amazing! The food is show stopping and the atmosphere is calm and welcoming!
Valentines Dinner with My Family
Made a reservation last minute on Valentine’s Day and we arrived 10 minutes late because we had to walk from the parking garage but we were able to still be checked in because they hold reservations for 15 mins after time selected. It was very busy and there was a wait for people whom did not have a reservation but only about 20 mins I believe. Anyways we were seated shortly after we had checked in and then service was quick and wonderful even on a very busy night. Food was amazing. I had crab cakes and Caesar salad. My boyfriend had chicken Parmesan. Both were really good. I would recommend. SHY WAS A GREAT WAITER.
Everything was great! From the reservation being honored to the service and food being great!
Always satisfied when we dine at Maggiano’s. Whether with out of town guests, intimate date nights with my husband or bringing the kids (kid friendly but not in the basic chicken fingers and fries way thank you!) we always leave happy and full with enough to take home and savor later.
Good food, good service! Seasonal menu is fantastic!
Service was great. They were super sweet to our 10 month old daughter.
Service was excellent, he was attentive and made us feel special. The food was excellent, served at just the right temperature, well-seasoned and great tasting. The ambiance was awesome. I cant wait to go again.
Service and food are always on point at Maggiano's!
Thank you your staff is wonderful always takes excellent care of us we are a large family and have really enjoyed spending time at Maggiano’s through the holidays and for everyday as well thank you again always a delight staff is always wonderful excellent service
Awesome food and service!
Food selection very good and excellent choice in specials offered. Our server, Mo, took special care of us and was very professional. We will return.
The staff and manager were great!!
My family members require a gluten-free diet. Maggiano's has always been awesome, but this time far exceeded expectations. Chef Zeb immediately put gluten-free meatballs in the oven before he even heard our order, presumably because meatballs are nearly unheard of on a GF diet, and never in a restaurant. He accurately predicted we'd jump on the opportunity! Furthermore, he had GF bread for us, which was delicious. He not only completely understood gluten-free diets, but he clearly enjoyed taking special care of us, making our meal safe and delicious.
We already knew from prior experience that all the GF pasta dishes at Maggiano's were excellent and they were again this time, and of course the added bonus of extra take-home pasta dishes meant they could be enjoyed for a couple of days past our visit.
On top of this being a lovely night out with the family, it was also my daughter's 21st birthday, and our server Lindsay and the manager that evening could not have been more gracious. Also, her name is Megan, so that went perfectly with the Maggiano's wine glass! My daughter had a wonderful, memorable celebration.
We've been here many times for dinner, but decided to give the brunch a shot. It is amazing--every dish is flavorful and custom made. The portions were so large, we were all full until dinner time. The frittata was cooked perfectly with a colorful array of veggies, and the side potatoes were scrumptious. Noona's pancakes were over the top yummy and the French toast was like to-die-for bread pudding. We'll be returning for sure!
This restaurant has vast space for big parties and small ones alike. However, because of the size of the dining room, service is pretty slow. The server came briefly after about 10 minutes of my family being seated to drop off bread and say hello. Between ordering drinks and appetizers, it took an hour for the entrees to come out. For such a large place with a large kitchen, I would expect service to be a bit faster. The fact that everything took so long probably had to do with the fact that almost every table in the dining room had at least 5 people in it- mine included. If you have time to wait, the experience is fairly nice. However, it is not ideal for those in a rush.
Didn’t really enjoy that much. The staff pressured us into getting family-style menu, which ended up being way more expensive than what we had originally anticipated. This was a major inconvenience for many of my friends. I celebrate my birthday at this location every year and I’m seriously considering not doing it again in the future. Quite a disappointing experience.
Our server, Faith, made a normal Thursday night dinner feel very special! Really nice quiet restaurant with wonderful ambiance. The food was amazing and Faith’s recommendations were perfect!
I had a wonderful lunch there yesterday and the staff was very attentive and the food was excellent,
Gluten-free pasta options. They also offer a gluten-free grilled calamari starter/appetizer that is off-menu.
Magianos is our go to place in the neighborhood...and is consistent re foid and service. The staff is great.
We love dining at Maggiano's restaurant. Food and service are great.
Thoroughly enjoyed our special birthday lunch.
Veal piccata was out of this world.
The cocktail, also very tasty, very refreshing.
Grey goose, slices of strawberries ‘ a wine spritzer combined.
Look forward to returning g.
Our group has been having lunch at Maggiano’s 2-4 times a year for at least 10 years. We have consistently had good food and great service. The staff had always gone out of their way to make us feel special. We will continue to visit Maggiano’s as it has become a place that feels safe and reliable for us.
I met a friend for dinner here at his suggestion. It's conveniently located very near the Friendship Heights Metro and they semi-validate parking in Chevy Chase Pavilion (they discount the prices). My expectations for the quality of the food were limited based on previous visits, but I was very pleasantly surprised by their menu addition of choice of seafood (shrimp, scallops, salmon) with a then somewhat confusing choice of accompaniments. Our server skillfully explained the details and I was very pleased with the scallops which were perfectly cooked and well suited to the accompaniments I chose.
Chicken Parmesan came out quickly and did not taste freshly made.
I took my wife here for her birthday and she loved it. The food was outstanding.
Birthday dinner for my Sir.
Our waiter was a little odd, made us feel a bit rushed. However, the food was great and everyone had a good time overall.
Every time I come to this location I’ve always had a great experience. I will continue to come.
The service and servers are always polite and helpful. the food is always on time. sometimes quicker than expected. I will be returning.
Had some gift certificates for Maggianos, and I am very glad to have had the opportunity to eat there. A beautiful restaurant. It is like a 1950's elegant Italian restaurant -- just lovely. And the music was wonderful (lots of Frank Sinatra, etc.) We sat in a lovely, spacious booth and were served by an excellent, sweet waitress whose food suggestions were delicious. The experience was completely fantastic. Will certainly recommend it and look forward to eating there again. Also, the upstairs banquet facilities looked super nice.
Our experience at Maggiano’s was great as usual!!!!! Our server Godfrey was very pleasant and patient as we took a while to decide on items for the family style dining!!!!!
