Went there on a weekend afternoon and it was not that busy. I had my kids and in-laws with me. Took 50 minutes to get our food; excuse was that 'their WiFi' was not working. People that came in 30 minutes after us got their food first. They bribed us with a free appetizer. No apology and we had to keep asking the hostess multiple times for napkins, refills of drinks, even for the bill. They overcharged and I had to ask for items to be removed from the bill.

Better off going to Stoney's up the street; now that's great food and great service

Hello there,

We are sorry to hear your recent visit wasn't up to par. You obviously caught us on an off night. Apologies that it took so long to get you your food. We actually had some staff changes about 3 months ago and we thought everyone was well-trained in prioritizing orders at this point, but alas, it seems that further training needs to be done. Thank you for your honesty and being detailed. Stoney's has wonderful food!
Thanks again for your review, we appreciate your patience with us.

We wanted to check out Maro's for a while . We read the reviews and were so looking forward to dinner . We had a reservation but still had to wait at the door for 30 minutes . The restaurant has stark lighting and is very noisy - not at all what we expected . We ordered fairly quickly . Our food arrived after the people beside us had finished . They sat down beside us at the exact same time . We ordered the veggie tower and Lebanese chicken on advice of the waitress . The veggie tower was a let down . Very tiny amount of couscous and hummus covered with large chunks of overly al dente veggies . The dish was a long narrow boat - the food fell over the side every time I stuck my fork into it . The flavour was unremarkable . My husband ordered the Lebanese chicken . It was a good sized portion but again nothing special . Shouldn't there be some sort of interesting spicing ? It tasted like any barbecued chicken ordered in a fast food restaurant or Swiss Chalet . Would we go back ? Perhaps to try something different - the cauliflower dish looked interesting and the Shwarma would probably have more flavour than the barbecued chicken . If you're looking for a nice quiet meal this is not the place . Probably better for takeout than eat in .

Hey Sandra,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.
Firstly, we are sorry you had to wait for a previously reserved seat. That is unfortunate and we apologize. We appreciate your honesty about the atmosphere as well. Sometimes it gets so incredibly busy (as you know) and loud and definitely takes away from being able to connect and relax with your family or friends. We have thought long and hard about how to change that for the better.
We are slowly able to work to amend that issue. We have started a delivery aspect to Maro's that will hopefully allow the place some breathing room.

Thanks also for your views on the food and presentation. We are always wanting to make a meal at Maro's a fabulous experience. Though we rarely receive any negative reviews about the food, we are sorry it didn't meet your expectations for flavour that night. The Lebanese chicken is more or less tangy with a nice char grill to it rather than hot and spicy. We do however have chicken tandoori that has a bit of heat (especially if you ask for it spicy).

Again, we appreciate your review very much. We will never attain the goal of perfection because one never stops learning. We will always want to do better.
Thank you again.

We were driving through Oakville abd decided to give Maro's a try based on the reviews.
The fried cauliflower was sublime and the hummus tasty. I found the tandoori chicken a bit dry and wished I had ordered chicken sharwma instead.
It was a busy night but the wait was not to long. The service was efficient and tables turned over regularly.
Overall I would recommend Maro's and will visit again if driving through Oakville.

Hello there

Thank you so much for your review.
Even though the tandoori chicken is served "dry" and not in a sauce, it would be disappointing if it were to be cooked for too long and the texture was also dry. If that was the case, we apologize for it being less than perfect!

We are also trying to cut down on the over-crowding and loud atmosphere by introducing the Bring It! system where we bring you your food.

You are welcome anytime to pop by on your way through, we really appreciate you taking the time to give us such an honest review!
