My colleague arrived slightly early and was not allowed to be seated at our reserved table until the whole party had arrived. We were eventually shown to our table by our server who was very rude to us (the hosts of our party) and in front of our guests. He demanded to know when the rest of the party was going to join us (we were 6 out of party of 8 at that point). I explained that we would be joined slightly later by the other two, but that we would proceed with ordering. He became very agitated and said we’d booked the table for 10 and that he’d therefore have to move us to another smaller table. I explained that we had actually booked it for 8 and showed him the booking, but he insisted on moving us (and all of our drinks) to a tiny table that only seated 6. When the other 2 of our party of 8 arrived there was no room for them to sit! Absolutely shocking, rude, unaccommodating service. I might have slightly understood had the restaurant been busy but it wasn’t (it was 4pm, outside of usual dinner hours), and that larger table of 10 we were originally sat on remained empty throughout the following 2 hours(as did most of the other tables in the restaurant.

My husband and I visited Maggiano's for our Anniversary during Brunch, the food was awesome, the price was right with a quiet atmosphere. The waiter was friendly and happy. We enjoyed our visit and will back again.

Although the portions seemed less generous than in the past, food is still delicious and service was very good. Zucotto cake was still a very large serving and extremely fresh and flavorful.

Our server found out that we were going to a concert. He made sure that we were finished in plenty of time to get to the concert.

Generally the food and the service is quite good in the Boston location. At this particular visit the server was less than vigilant, we were giving blood red plates that were dirty and only a cursory apology and the food was on the cooler side.

Spinach salad and “Mom’s Lasagna” were delicious. Our waiter was not as attentive as we would have expected him to be...perhaps he had a bad day or thought we were there for the duration!

Everyone really enjoyed their meal! The wait staff were excellent. The only issue was the brownie was hard as a rock and was burnt. We should have sent it back but delved in anyway.

Great food and service. We loved the family style menu offering. The portions were large enough for all eight of us. The selection was very nice at a good price.

The food is always good at Maggiano's. We were there celebrating my son's birthday. I got the chicken special which was delicious.

Amazing food. Service was slow but it was very busy so somewhat understandable, besides the 25 minute wait for our drinks & no bread. I still highly highly recommend due to delicious meals

The food was excellent as always however the waiter was a bit...well, not excellent. He was very blunt which , ok, some people are that way, but you are a waiter, blunt doesn't work for waitstaff. Asking if everything was okay with our meal was an afterthought and he could barely be bothered asking. And it wasn't until we were completely finished eating did he ask he if we needed anything else to drink. This is not the normal experience we have when we eat at Maggiano's Boston and I sincerely hope that is the last time we are seated in that particular waiter's section.

Your restaurant is my favourite Italian restaurant. The food is the best, but that is not the reason that it is my favourite in Boston. We live in Montreal. About twenty years ago the Copley sent us to you . We walked over and came to your place. The manager asked me if I have a reservation. I said no . The place was jam packed with a waiting line. He said. Follow me and I will grind you a nice table and he did! So that’s why I love Maggiano’s
