It's been about a year since I last ate at a Macaroni Grill. The bread recipe has been changed and not for the better. The texture is weak and the rosemary flavor is reduced. My romaine salad was full of ribs and overdressed. My pasta...More

This place never lets me down. They have a new menu and offer a good lunch choice. They have many vegetarian options. The place is clean and neat, and you get to write on the tables!

The service was spotty and the food so so . Was just salads. Both had mistakes on them. Chicken not shrimp on one. No bacon or nuts on the other. This was a Monday lunch and very not busy. Will not go back.

I went with a friend and my service dog. The staff was friendly and helpful. We shared a salmon dinner, penne rustica and tiramisu. Everything was wonderful, perfectly prepared. The salmon was cooked perfectly, not dry or overcooked. Our glasses of iced tea were kept...More
