We went there for Mother's Day, 3 kids & 4 adults. Three of us got the Penne Rustica & loved it. Ask them to add extra sauce. This makes it really tasty. With the Caesar salad & fresh baked bread included, it's a full meal. We also liked their house red wine. The kids really enjoyed their kid's meal too.... More

We had a $10 coupon off a minimum $20 meal which was emailed to me. We've enjoyed this place before, but tonite was the end of Macaroni Grill for us. When we arrived, the restaurant was not crowded. There was a gathering for some sort of special event in the adjoining room. We arrived and immediately ordered. I am GF... More

My group of 34 women, all individual checks, had dinner here on a Tuesday night. We had made reservations weeks before, and called to confirm days before, but when we arrived the host was confused - they did NOT have our reservation! However, they immediately started to set up the room that we had asked for - luckily a few... More

We were there on a slow night with a couple of small children...they seated us in the kid's area which was not a big deal, but it was filthy! Old, dirty, crusty napkins under the table, lots of old food under the table and the chairs were sticky. I get it...some folks don't want to hear kids when they go... More

Poor service. Food was cold. Barely any sauce on the spaghetti and drastically over priced! Many better places to get Italian food that is much better. Save your money and go somewhere else when you crave Italian! FYI on a Saturday evening at 6:00 they were half empty! That should tell you a lot all by itself!

Have ordered pock chop dinner multiple times over the years. Each dinner experience was good. Last week there were changes. Ordered the pork chop dinner again. This time it came out as a tomahawk port chop. 90% bone and 10% meat. Literally less than about 3 oz of meat on this gigantic bone. My dining partners and I laughed at... More

the Macaroni Grill is a national chain. I am comfortable eating in one anywhere. The Kemper Road location in Cincinnati has the same menu as others. I love the salmon dish (minus the spicey topping) but once in awhile I'll get a full meal of pasta. I can't rate this restaurant as excellent because it's a chain and they're all... More

First of all I hate the concept of a manager yelling out the orders to the kitchen help. The food cost too much there to be doing that. Get monitors!!!!! The help was fair. Parts of our order was forgotten. Service was not really great. Our server seemed uninterested in serving us. The food quality was fair. The prices were... More

My husband and I went here for our nice night out. First they set us at an awkward table where 2 chairs stuck out and servers kept bump g into us. It took forever to order, get drinks, and get anything. Our food ticket "got lost" and we had to wait nearly two hours. My food came out first. I... More

I met an attorney friend of mine there several weeks ago. The food was good. The service was good and the menu was nice. My only complaint is that the lighting level was a little to low there. Overall though, it was good.
