Maggiano's - Bellevue
Maggiano's features Happy Hour in our Lounge from 3-6 Monday through Friday.
Serious stomach distress from one hour after eating lasting for 3 days now. Almost ruined our anniversary celebration. Ambience was not great, food was just okay, and the staff was clearly overwhelmed. First and last time coming here.
Very busy, even though we were told it was a slower evening.
Great experience for a special occasion
Every time, fantastic. Maggian's never fails to deliver awesome food with great service. The take home pasta is a really great value too.
My favorite thing on the menu (crab cakes) were barely warm and dry. I have been going to Maggiano's for over tens years and this was my second visit to the Bellevue location. My first visit to this location was 4 years ago and the food was perfect but this last visit (6/21/2019) was quite disappointing. I wanted the lasagna and I was told they ran out. I'm not sure what happened here and never thought I would ever write anything negative about my favorite restaurant but my spaghetti barely had any sauce on it and it was not good. Who serves spaghetti with barely any sauce? Please change back to the quality expected so I can continue to enjoy Maggiano's.
Just wasn’t as good as before. Kids were starving and it took too long for the meal to come out. Then table we were at because we had 8 people was right by the busing station and we had waiters constantly coming around our table. I was bumped about 20 times because my chair was by end of the table. It was just less than expected.
We went for a graduation dinner. Unfortunately, we had 2 servers working together who continuously tried to clear our plates and move us along until it came time for the bill, and then we sat and waited. I think training is great, but the girls need to be aware of what the other is doing. Communication is important!
We really appreciated that they accommodated our hearing impaired person and placed us in a quiet area. They were more than conscientious of our dietary restrictions and were very gracious about that. It's a great place for a group dinner...very fun.
We like dinner very much. The place is nice and confortable. The quality of food is so good and the prices are really great
everyone was impressed with the room, the food, the service, the drinks. I have all positive things to say especially to Kristin who help me greatly coordinating this event! Thank you!!
The food used to be terrific. This time it was good but nothing fantastic. . Our server was wonderful and the chef's attention to allergies was so impressive.
The restaurant kind of smelled mildewy. I like that there are carpets because people used to slip on the floor but now they stink. 😬 Hopefully they will fix that.
Excellent family meal All the foods we’re delicious
Wonderful. The best cheese cake in all the land.
Favorite restaurant for date night or even family night. Awesome service, great atmosphere, and delicious food!
The service was fantastic. They were able to seat a 7 top on my birthday weekend - in the middle of June and still give us their full attention. The food wasn't absolutely fabulous, but it was very good for the price.
Was great as always. But had to wait 10 minutes with our reservation and our waiter was a bit inattentive at times. He was really busy.
The staff was so rude, and grumpy! Our waiter brought my sons food out on a plate so hot he burnt his fingers, we told management and they apologized, but the waiter never did, they also didn’t give us any kind of discount. We got there a little before out reservations 3:30 and we’re told we couldn’t be seated prior to our reservations time, even tho the place was empty and they were seating walking. Don’t think I’ll waste my time going back as it was an hour drive each way
Seven of us really enjoyed our dining experience at Maggianno's. We hadn't been there in a while and since we got a $100 gift card to it from someone so was easy decision to go again. We had forgotten how good many of the dishes are. The ambiance is good though the noise level is a little high, probably because everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and their meals so much. Our waiter was an Italian from Montreal Canada who fit the place like a glove. His service was very good in that he was attentive and friendly but wasn't excessively engaging us in conversation.
The only caveat to our experience were the high prices. I think that's the main reason we don't dine their more often.
Bottom line: If you're looking for excellent Italian food with great service and can live with some higher pricing, like for a special occasion, then Maggiano's will do very nicely.
Wait staff was Amazing
I took a friend for her birthday. Maggiano’s opens at 11:30 and we were going to a movie that started at 12:35. We explained this to Ethan, our waiter who is a true professional! He explained the menu and options well, he was attentive, but not obtrusive. We ordered from the buy one, get one are of the menu and he told us we could pick up our “get one” after the movie so we didn’t have to take it with us (which we did). The gal behind the take out went and told Ethan we were there for our orders and he came out with them with little waiting time. I forgot to mention he brought out a birthday dessert with candles and beautifully written “happy birthday” on the rim of the dish. The whole experience was wonderful.
Outstanding service, especially for our large group.
Our first visit to Bellevue Maggiano's ...it was great!!..our waiter/server, "Ash" was just great. Very nice, informative, not too intrusive. Dinner was very good, take home meal is a nice touch! Will definitely be back next time we are down from Vancouver, BC.!!
Definitely a more on the fancier side. Service is bad on busy days. Waited 10+ minutes for check. Food was great.
The dinner and atmosphere were fantastic. We will be back again...
Ivan is the best server! From the late arrival of over half our party of 7 through dessert, he handled our family dinner like a pro. Should happily sit in his section again! The food was delicious, large portions and balanced spices; will enjoy coming back and working my way through the menu. Lots of tasty choices!
Out of 6 times going there this was the worst experience we've ever had. They changed the menu and took the braised beef off the meal for two and changed the recipe which tasted very fishy. Why would you have white sauce with beef?! The tan sauce was way better and the noodles. Then I switched to the chicken fettuccine alfredo and it had no seasoning and tasted like fish too. Seems they don't separate their grills from fish and no fish. Our waiter was very bland and not entertaining and did not try to mend the experience. He also got our take home order wrong. I ordered ravioli not chicken fettuccine Alfredo again! Charged full price even when we didn't want the dessert because we were so disappointed in the food and he charged extra for the chicken.
It is now like an olive garden and to be honest olive garden is better now. It really doesn't feel like an Italian restaurant anymore either with its waiters and environment and food.
Took some Italian friends for their first time. Loved it all!!!
Great service and good food.
Food and service was great and will be back to try other dishes.
Excellent service! We had a friend that was very allergic to seafood. Our waiter was exceptional and explained that their chef (JP) would come out to explain exactly how her food would be prepared. Sure enough, he came out and communicated exactly how they would take care of her. She has never had that ever - from any restaurant. They were sooo thoughtful and considerate. One of our friends hadn't been there before, and our waiter came out with a wonderful appetizer to share. We had a nice man from your Dallas team that was so thoughtful ensuring that we were taken care of.
It was the best experience. Exceptional service and quality of food too. Thank you!
Our night at Maggiano's was so very disappointing. Our waiter started our evening by spilling a glass of water on me. Then 15 minutes of waiting for him to get towels to clean it up. Then a long gap of time to come back to the table to take our order. Then wait. Twenty minutes later our lemonade came. Then wait. Then bread, wait. Finally the main course arrived, which tasted good, but not the special flavor the food has had in our past visits. 15 minutes to get the to go boxes ready. 15 more minutes for 4 cups of coffee. We cancelled our order for dessert because we waited again for another 15-20 minutes with no service.
This was supposed to be a very special evening for a family celebration. I don't think we will try again.
First time at Maggiano's. The service was exemplary. The food was delicious- and if you order the classic pasta dish, you get to take home a pasta of your choice. The food tasted homemade and the portions were large. Although the deserts passing by our table looked fabulous, we were too full to partake. May skip the salad next time!
The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The service was incredible! Will absolutely be back!
I always enjoy eating here. Usually it’s a party of 7 or more so we always do family style dinner. The service is great, always pleasant and nice and honestly just makes dinner more memorable.
Very dissatisfied with this place. Red sauce was bitter, kids ice cream came out MELTED, service was very slow. She was not very attentive. They got our order wrong but did correct it right away. The only thing we truly enjoyed was the starter bread.
Awesome food and customer service. Staff is always professional and courteous, food is always prepared at the required temperature, tasty and presentation is always great.
The food is excellent and very well priced. The service was not as exceptional as the last visit that I had.
Very fun to bring the family here for a celebration! Big portions and you get take home with more to enjoy.
Waiter was great. Other waiters including hostess/manager fought over setting up a table in front of us. Eggplant wasn’t cooked or edible.
this used to be a really really good place to go. Service is really declined. Open table online appears to work for time, but nothing else. I listed that I wanted a booth and that it was a birthday. The concierge was kind of snooty and made it clear that I did not list anything and that she put in the request. People just didn't seem happy...okay, well welcome to WA state. Our server was too busy to service our table...that was fine, we knew what we wanted and made the best of it. The food was really really good and the calamari was light, crispy and delicious and the creme brulee was excellent. The pasta was cooked perfectly and I still love those meatballs.
