I've had some decent meals at Macaroni Grill but the poor service is certainly a turn-off - - - they are young, inexperienced and poorly trained -

The staff was very friendly and the food was nice after the long flight. I had never been to one of these restaurants, so I didn't know what to expect. I would definitely come back if in the area again.

We selected Macaroni Grill because we have enjoyed their food in several cities where we've traveled. This property at the Desert Ridge Marketplace is no exception. I had Chicken Scalopine and my wife had salmon with balsamic glaze. Both dishes were very good. We enjoyed...More

The food was decent but nothing incredible. If your looking for authentic Italian food go somewhere else. The service wasn't the best. To me it seemed a little run down, the bathrooms weren't very clean which always makes me wonder what the kitchen looks like.
