It's been about a year since I last ate at a Macaroni Grill. The bread recipe has been changed and not for the better. The texture is weak and the rosemary flavor is reduced. My romaine salad was full of ribs and overdressed. My pasta was over cooked and over sauced. My pollo caprese was well prepared. Add to the... More

This place never lets me down. They have a new menu and offer a good lunch choice. They have many vegetarian options. The place is clean and neat, and you get to write on the tables!

Macaroni Grill is my wife's favorite eatery. Today, we stopped by for a late lunch and the food was perfect. She got the mushroom ravioli and I got the lasagna. We started the meal off with French fried mushrooms. The were deep fried Portobello mushrooms. Yummy... I tried the Italian carbonated lemonade and the wife had water. Food came in... More

We dine at Macaroni Grill whenever we are stopping over in Bakersfield. This chain has been in existence for quite a while and over time the crowds seem to have diminished. We enjoy ordering their eggplant parmesan that comes with a side of spaghetti and a salad with their house dressing. Their sauce is tasty and the bread offered with... More

Every time we drive the two ours from the desert to Bakersfield, we make a point at stopping at this restaurant. Going from a town with just over 10,000 people to a metropolis of over 300,000 people can be intimidating. Once, we find a good thing, you can bet that we will make it a tradition. Every meal has been... More

Don't go if you don't have a kid with you. It is a chain, but it is a really good one. It is supposed to be Italian and it is to a point. The menu is large and very kid friendly. Nothing you order is complicated here. You get large servings and bread. The service is great and the food... More

A recommendation from a hotel employee sent us here early January and we were glad for it. Expected a typical roadhouse menu and atmosphere but not here that night. Our server Kendra was the first clue that dinner was about to be special. She deserves recognition for the smile that never wavered on a very busy evening. First a bottle... More

The service was spotty and the food so so . Was just salads. Both had mistakes on them. Chicken not shrimp on one. No bacon or nuts on the other. This was a Monday lunch and very not busy. Will not go back.

I went with a friend and my service dog. The staff was friendly and helpful. We shared a salmon dinner, penne rustica and tiramisu. Everything was wonderful, perfectly prepared. The salmon was cooked perfectly, not dry or overcooked. Our glasses of iced tea were kept full by the waitress, and we had a great time. I will be going back... More

Terrible service. 3 adults and 2 children were there for lunch last Sunday. No one was there to seat us for almost 5 minutes then menus were brought but they did not offer the lunch special menu which is definitely a great deal for lunch. They also have one for dinner. We asked for a couple of them as we... More
