Sorry to say Romano's Macaroni Grill seems to be going downhill...visited several different locations over the last year & the food is not what it used to be! Our waiter was great, service was great, food was fair to poor! The best thing I had was the bread & olive oil. We ordered several entrees. Chicken Parm was bland, Pasta... More

We come to Romano's every now and then, primarily because of the convenient location and family friendly atmosphere. The food is typically decent, but not consistently. Sometimes they drown the pasta in butter. Sometimes they overcook the chicken strips.The portion size varies. In general they seem to have become a bit smaller. Service tends to be slow and the waiters... More

Went here for a family celebration with 9 adults and two children. The service was friendly and competent although the dishes arrived haphazardly. However food was lacking. My lasagna was black on the bottom and my wife's pasta was almost totally lacking the signature chicken. The line crew needs retraining. Would not return.

They have a great 3 course lunch special. Great prices. Good tap selections. And a fantastic happy hour. One of my favorite places from Colorado. Happy to see the same quality in Alexandria.

I had never been to Macaroni Grill so we decided to try it this time while in town on business! The food was amazing and the portions very good size for the price! I couldn't eat but half of my meal. I got the blackened chicken Parmesan and it was great! The Rosemary Ribeye was huge! Good drinks too.

We have eaten there several times. Staff is very professional, courteous and prompt. Food is consistently good and the selection is good. Wine is reasonably priced. The overall ambiance and experience make you want to return. Plenty of convenient parking. Close to all of the Kingstowne shops and stores.

the Macaroni Grill has become a regular stop over on my way home from work. I eat at the bar and can watch the ball game because I'm solo and like the food. Some may not consider the Macaroni Grill gourmet but I like it because it's good, hot, and the service is personal. I know I'm going to get... More

Our dishes were very tasty, and were enough to share (unless you are ravenous!). My husband and I shared a sausage, meatball, and penne pasta dish and regular-sized Caesar salad. My mother had the "Create Your Own Pasta" and she ended up bringing half of it home. On Thursday nights, they offer a large bottle of house wine (I think... More

Over the years I have been to this location several times and think the food is getting worse and getting heavier and richer. It is hard to find anything healthy on the menu. I had the mushroom ravioli which was swimming in a rich oily cream sauce. My husband had the eggplant parmigiana which has changed too. It used to... More
