Food was okay, but not for price. My spaghetti is much tastier. Service made up for the spices missing.

The atmosphere is very nice for price. Servings are small and my food was cold..even after it was reheated. Maybe it was an off night - would try again!

So glad my sweetie convinced us to try it again. Experience was delightful, the service was great (THANKS JIM!), the food was perfect. My only complaint is that the cloth napkins leave lint on my dark slacks (and I have a lint brush in my purse that fixes that!). I had the Warm Spinach & Scallops (man, was this GOOD...) and my Huny had the Shrimp Portofino, which was not swimming in a heavy rich lemon butter . . . food was not over salted like so many restaurants these days. Oh, did I mention the lentil soup? Perfect touch of heat from the crushed pepper--all in all it was just a very enjoyable experience. Let's hope the new trend of fresh & friendly stays! I LIKED it!

Sat down at a table that did not looked cleaned off. Bread crumbs all over it, food on bread plates, food on glassware, food on silverware. Waiter took FOREVER handling everything.... food was ok.

It was a horrible Valentine's Day experience at Macaroni Grill. I had called in a few days before to setup a reservation knowing that it was going to be busy. This way my girlfriend and I wouldn't have to wait for a long time after we got there. Our reservation was for 7pm. We got there 10 minutes before. The people in front of us in line at the hostess station were being told it would be a 45 minute wait until seats were available for non reservations. When I got to the counter and mentioned I had a reservation at 7, the hostess hands us a buzzer and says we'll be called soon. We were not called until 7:30 which was 40 minutes later. That is completely unacceptable to wait that long when having a reservation. At our meal the waiter named Jon, who only had 3 tables, took his time getting to ours. When he did all he did was pour olive oil on a plate and take our drink order. When he came back with the drinks was when I had to mention to him about the bread. He grabbed the bread and I had to ask about the seasoning for the oil. He also forgot to bring us water despite bringing us empty glasses to put the water from the decanter in. He never took our meal order until after my GF and I had finished eating the bread 15 minutes later. My girlfriend ordered the Florentine steak meal and I ordered the daily special. My meal was bland tasting and most unappetizing, the butter nut squash special. It was advertised to have truffles and prosciutto on it. It came with neither. Nothing but giant cheese filled pasta with some chopped up vegetables and sauce put on top. Parts of the pasta were hard and over cooked but edible. My girlfriend's meal was much worse. She asked for her steak to be cooked medium. By aggregate that was what she got because have the steak was almost raw and the other half was burnt to a crisp. It was a steak I wouldn't feed to a dog. She barely ate any of it and stuck with the fries that was served. She's not the type to send food back either and refused to let me do so. Even after all this, my original drink order was never refilled nor asked to be refilled by the waiter until he was handing us the bill. Didn't ask if were ready to leave, but walked up to our table and plopped down the bill. As he was about to walk away that was when he noticed my empty glass and asked if I wanted a refill. I said no and he left. He never asked if my girl friend wanted a refill on her soda and she was almost out as well. I paid and he left. Not once asking if enjoyed the meal or if we would like to take what we had left to go, which we had plenty because the food was so appalling. Nor would we have taken it, but the utter lack of care and trying to rush us out the door showed us how well Macaroni grill treats its customers. I did ask to speak with a manager as we walked by the hostess station. I explained a bit to Douglas, the manager, about some of our bad experiences that night. He asked to see our bill, which was about $45, so he could compensate us for the trouble. He comes back and hands me a new bill with $5 taken off. That was almost as insulting as the rest of the experience we had that night.
