What's going on at Macaroni Grill? The waiter is the host and the bus boy And the bar tender?? The food is not as outstanding anymore... this was once a place to go and usually a wait it was so good... disappointed. But the bread is still good!

Service was pretty good, but the restaurant was sparsely populated. Our server was cheerful and attentive. The ambiance was decent but not great. The food was awful. No other way to describe it. We've had better "Italian" food at Fazzoli's fast food. I had Fettucine Alfredo with Chicken, which was boiled and I think left to soak up water for... More

When we arrived at the restaurant around 5:30 pm on a Wednesday night after Christmas there was a handful of people dining, so we expected to receive decent service, we were WRONG, The service was practically nonexistent, I had to get up to get the waiter or yell to get his attention and even then I was blatantly ignored. When... More

I don't believe this restaurant should even open its doors if our experiences last night is any indication! We were needing to have dinner, then get on the road for a 3 hour trip. We walked in around 7:30 on a Saturday night. There were quite a few people waiting but lots of empty tables. We were told it would... More

After having lobster ravioli at The Palm & McCormick & Schmicks (and enjoying both!) I was excited to find out Macaroni Grill had lobster ravioli. We went for a late lunch & got there a little before 5pm. We were the only one in the dining room. There was a funky moldy smell as soon as we entered the lobby.... More

A friend gave us a gift card for this restaurant. Unfortunately we used it. We took three grandchildren with us for dinner. When we arrived there were only two other tables occupied. Nevertheless we waited over 45 minutes and then only received our food after complaining. No one had checked on us during the wait. The food was uniformly judged... More

Bad service, greasy food, Over priced. This restaurant used to be one of the best in Cool Springs. Matter of fact, one could expect a pretty long wait. But no longer, unless you've already been seated. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks and close to 45 for our food. And there was hardly anyone in the restaurant! Seems the... More

I love the Macaroni Grill in Franklin.The restaurant itself is just beautiful and the food is fantastic. The servers here are always so attentive. Best of all, their spaghetti and meatballs are off the chain. This is a great chain restaurant for Italian food that I highly recommend.

We ate dinner here, good food and good quantity. The service was very slow it took more than half an hour for the food to come in spite the restaurant was empty. The manager apologized and gave us discount. The staff is friendly. I will try the restaurant once more because of the food.

Thank Ashraf H
