Stopped going several years ago. Retried it recently. Bread was awful. Lobster ravioli wonderful We have been there 3 more times. Service hit or miss. Jen and Daniel were great servers. The bread has improved. Apparently the bread is not made on sight and they had a bad batch for awhile. Much better now. Crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Lobster ravioli still wonderful.

Showed up at 4:15 p.m. on a Tuesday. Greeted and seated promptly. Server was just fine. We eat light, so we wanted to share a meal. That was not a problem and was even separated in the back for us and brought in hot, appropriately sized dishes. We did however order an additional side Caesar salad. It was beyond it's lifespan. We both were so hungry, we ate it anyway. It was pretty wilted and soggy. Maybe left over from the lunch rush? Fortunately our entree was delicious and plentiful. We ordered the Rustica Penne ( close enough) with chicken and shrimp. Super good and we both couldn't finish our halves. Loved the big band music and hubby enjoyed drawing with the crayons on the paper atop the tablecloth.

This restaurant has been there for quite some years. I used to go there quite often, for dinners, but stopped going a few years ago. Went there today for lunch. Wow, really like it, again.

Services: Great!
Food: Good.
Price/Value: Great

Today is Thursday, wine special day - all bottles are half price. We brought a bottle of our own. They didn't charge cork fee.

Will definitely come back more!

We come one or two times a month for lunch. We usually order one of the Express Lunches, occasionally we'll order a full lunch. Service here is always very good, staff are friendly and the food is always tasty. The pastas and sauces are made well and taste good. Pasta is cooked just right!

Several years ago we stopped going to Macoroni grill because they change their lobster ravioli. Was looking at the menu online and it had lobster ravioli listed. We went back today. Jen was our server and was so friendly and helpful The bread was stale, and the mac and cheese balls ok. The salad was so fresh and the salad dressing was wonderful.
The lobster ravioli was the best. The sauce was amazing and the freshness obvious. So glad we tried it again. Jen gave us some ideas for the next time we visit. It is not going to be years this time.
