I looked into them when I was searching for a restaurant for my reception, but they were just more than I wanted to pay. I am doing TX Land and Cattle instead. I still think it is a great option.

I had my rehearsal dinner there. I think it would be great for a reception! i’m not sure if all of them are the same but ours had private rooms upstairs. severel small ones that can open to a big one. we had about 40 people for the rehearsal dinner so we fit in one room. i really love the atmosphere, the dark wood and gorgeous lighting – the price isnt bad its cheaper than doing at say, a hotel, but not by much. but the food was AMAZING we really loved it. i would def look into it.

Also i would ask about their policy on DJ’st and stuff like that, dance floors, but i think they advertise wedding receptions so it probably wont be a problem, but worth asking about.

also dont worry about the food running out – you pay per person. We had SOOO much food, and if our table finished a plate they brought more out.

I would say make sure you really like their food. I don’t think their catering food is great—the grilled chicken breast was burnt/overly liquid smoked, and the gnocchi was sooooo doughy and the sauce was just meh. I love Italian food too, so it was a big disappointment. Definitely try the menu out and make sure you love it!!! Catering wasn’t as good as when I eat in the restaraunt. (went to the DC/Friendship Heights location btw)

My friend had her reception in the Maggiano’s in Atlanta, GA (Buckhead to be exact). She had 110+ guests. She brought in chair covers and chair sashes to bring in her colors. Maggiano’s provided the centerpieces. There was a bar, DJ, plenty of food, and plenty of room for dancing. The food was served family style, and there was plenty.

I went to a wedding at Maggianos a month ago.  It was really good!  Thay actually did the ceremony and reception there.  They were trying to do things on a very low budget, so they had an ipod playing music, not a DJ, but I’m sure a DJ would be fine.  I love the food there and they served it all family style, which was kinda cool because we all got to try everything instead of only having one choice. 

I would definitely recommend it.  Good luck!!
