    We used to ask for gift certs for Christmas gifts and each month, a bunch of secretaries would meet once a month. We looked forward to that date and never missed. Took us all year to spend it all. First a bottle on Pinot Noir or Cab to share…then each would order a different share..and then the dessert.

    When with my old high school friends, we love to unwind by wearing our comfy jeans, cute shirts and shoes, and going to one of our favorite restaurants to talk, catch-up, eat delicious food, and go at a slow pace to enjoy the moment and the time together.  Maggiano’s is the best place to do that.  The staff is always so gracious and accomodating for us.  They just let us be us.

    I really love unwinding after a long week at work with a late dinner with my husband at a “comfortable” restaurant. Comfortable meaning good food, good wine and an environment that feels like home. And nothing is better that Maggianos mushrooms, I can’t wait until this weekend.

  • Karen

    I enjoy cooking and it truly relaxes me. Yesterday, I made the stuffed meatloaf recipe that I received from Maggiano’s via email last week and it is a keeper!

    A glass of wine is a good relaxer, too.

  • Kathy Assad

    Nothing better than a couple of “Hoo-Hoo’s” with friends from work after hours.  When you and your friends meet after work, it’s a whole different experience than when you work with that person.   Maggiano’s has the best atmosphere where you can relax, sit back and enjoy great food and drinks (hoo-hoo’s) with the BEST SERVICE.

    Best bet, gather your friends and co-worker’s (with the understanding of course that we don’t discuss work), enjoy a great atmosphere, good food a couple of bottles of wine. Tomorrow doesn’t look so intimidating if you spend the night before with good company.

  • Mary

  • Sbradley

    My favorite way to unwind, especially after a long day at the office, is going to a friendly bar with friends, having a martini or sharing a bottle of wine and enjoying a couple appetizers.  Maggiano’s is a perfect place for that. I love the comfy warm atmosphere there – and the very good service.

  • Nolea

    God food and good friends, what could be better.  I am from New York and never liked California Italian food.  Maggianos is the closest to New York cuisine… love it.. only Italian restaurant this Italian eats at.

    I have a very hard time unwinding ever.  I’d love to share this happy hour with my new friends at the college where I work.  I left a job I loved so my 2 daughters could attend this excellent school and I’d help them financially.  If I won this happy hour, I’d invite the people here who have made me feel welcome to relax a bit and get to know each other better….

  • Brendahos

     An adult evening out without children…priceless! Very rare, but when we do get them we cherish our time with friends, add a little martini first and then wine with great food and of course your there with your best friends to celebrate. Celebrating friendship!

  • G8676

    One of my favorite things to do to unwind is to come to Maggiano’s for a nice glass of wine, some chopped salad and pasta on a Friday evening.  My husband and I like to sit at the bar and people watch, while discussing the week.  And nothing tops it off as well as some of your Creme Brulee!  I always leave totally relaxed, refreshed and full of good food.

  • Elizabeta

    I enjoy dining out with my boyfriend, friends or family. That always puts me in a really good mood and I am more relaxed. I believe that good food is a perfect solution for almost everything! 

  • Pink Ballew

    My favorite way to unwind is to have a grey goose vodka martini extra dry, extra olives while waiting for my friends to join us for a family style great meal at Magggiano’s at Northpark in Dallas and then sit back and stuff my face till I don’t have a care in the world. 

  • Alisa

    Cuddle up with a favorite glass of wine, something tasty to nibble on and enjoy the evening.

  • Bncthay

    Italian wine & food at Maggianos..a great way to escape life’s slings & arrows

  • Susan Ponce

    My husband and I love to unwind not just on Fridays but sometimes during the week is even better.  In fact we did just that last week at Maggiano’s.  Sat in the bar for about an hour then went in to have a delicious meal.   The bartenders are friendly and attentive, the drinks are tasty, good prices and great appetizers.
    Maggiano’s is one of our very favorite places to go.  Whether in Orange County, where we lived or in Las Vegas where we also lived and now in Scottsdale.  (I also set up special dinners and events for my son’s company, The Sundance Center, at Maggiano’s.)

    We love Maggiano’s.  What more can I say?

  • Pat M

    I love to unwind with good friends, a bottle of wine, food and lively conversation.  It would be great to do that at Maggiano’s, such a warm, cozy place for an enjoyable evening.

    and the food is always excellent!

  • Rocky Babson

    Being that I am a DUI lawyer, my days are full of unhappy clients. One way that I, along with my fellow DUI lawyers, unwind is to meet in an inviting atmosphere and make a good faith effort at “Happy Hour.” We love Maggiano’s for giving us the environment and we bring our own happiness after settling in with their signature cocktails and martinis! After all, they’re right around the corner from our office, NO DRIVING NECESSARY!! :-)

    My favorite way to unwind after a busy day is to go to a nice bar and enjoy drinks with friends, co-workers or customers.  Most people overlook Magiano’s as a place for happy hour.  If you haven’t tried out Magiano’s happy hour you are missing out.

We love the sounds and smells of the restaurant and always feel that we should do this more often!

  • jose

    i simply love going to Maggianos Happy Hour at the location of San Antonio, Tx. There are other locations w/ good happy that i have been to such as Kona and Yardhouse BUT none compare to Maggianos. Reason why i say that, you dont have to wait like 30 mins to get a drink form the bartender compare to Kona and Yardhouse. i always had to wait a long time for a drink. However, at Maggianos nice,mature,and friendly crowd with a great bartending staff who can treat you right. Great environment. Great specials. Great place to have all your friends together for some great drinks and great prices.. Maggianos..simply the best !!

  • Llana Beans

    Cheers! with a double date! talking about memory lane with some good laughs!

  • Mjlizardi

    My most enjoyable way to unwind would be to have friends meet up and have cocktails and talk about life. It makes times like those worth living and let’s us take in those moments with friends that really care about you. Me and my friends love to talk about our jobs & marriages which bring highs and lows of life! After having cocktails me and my friends love to enjoy a huge dinner with 4-6 bottless of red wine and follow up with a cappuccino! Neither to less cocktails & dreams are what life is all about when your at my age!! Maggiano’s is the best place !!

    Maggiano’s is my ultimate unwind. With four children ages 5, 4, 2.5, and 1…I absolutely love my night out at to dinner at Maggiano’s simply because of the pace of the meal, the atmosphere, and the food quality that is nearly unmatchable even at a local eatery.

  • Leon M.

    I unwind from a tough stressful day in the office by thinking about my family & arriving home to a cold frosty beers, then seeing & hearing what my beautiful wife & daredevil son have been up to. And of course I can’t forget usually celebrating with a hearty meal at my favorite restaurant, Maggiano’s.

  • Bosabri

    A 30 minute workout or salsa dancing always does the trick

  • Sjowens

    i unwind by sitting at a table eating food made by someone else, being served by someone else and listening to my girls’ giggles and seeing the twinkle in my husbands eye as he looks across the checkered tablecloth at me from our favorite restaurant: WE LOVE MAGGIANO’s!!! thanks for  helping me unwind by giving me, “momma chef,” a night off once in a while!!!

  • Lauren

    Going swimming and drinking cool lemonade

  • Ronald Mckay1

    For free playing my guitar, going fishing or gardening.  For a few bucks a couple of cocktail’s, some wine with a good dinner nd I’m unwound for sure.

  • Jokeisman

    Hard to beat having a comfortable place to come home too, but that doesn’t mean I don’t WANT to come to Maggiano’s FIRST! Great food, great service and something cold and refreshing to end the day sounds perfect. I bet not only would I love it, but just think how popular I would be if I got to share that with others. Who doesn’t want to be the “cool kid”. Ok so I am way to old to be a kid, but I’m just sayin.

  • Craftyinnj

    I get into my PJ’s and turn the television on, and just get lost in tvland. It’s a relaxing way to unwind.

    Glass of wine, no interruptions, and a good book.

    relax with friends and family – a good bottle of port always adds to the fun

    Kick back with my hubby and open a bottle of  Merlot or Chardonnay.   Great way to communicate and relax after a hard day’s work.

  • Andir911

    Throwing back a couple of Shiners with my sister while we chow down on some Margarita Flat Bread and recite our favorite childhood quotes and ponder how the h*ll we made it to adulthood with all the stupid stuff we did! “You can’t catch me, I’m Mr. T!” Man I loved that pink bicycle!!!

  • Tony

    Let me count the ways, napping on my hammock, gently swinging in the summer breeze, having a chilled fume blanc overlooking the bloossom filled vineyard at my favorite winery, reading a good mystery novel on a lounge chair at poolside, anywhere its hot. Sitting at maggiano’s patio table , eating scrumptious food paired with good wne and great company while enjoying the soothing jazz sounds emitted from the sultry jazz quartet in the Santana Row Plaza.

  • Billie Begaii

    It’s great to wind-down at home, which is what Maggiano’s is…casual north side neighborhood place in my place of town.  It’s their pleasure to service me and ask if they can continue to serve with excellent food, super pricing and hosting to the most.  It’ s my pleasure to go to their home which is a comfort home away from my home.  Community comfort so inclusive!  Billie B

  • Bubik

    My favorite way to unwind either after a very long day at the office or even at home is to gather with my co-workers & friends and share an evening mixed with converstion, good food and especially a pitcher of margarita’s or mojito’s or if I am at home put my feet up have a glass of wine and cuddle up with a good book.

  • Dsielski

    Go to Vegas every year…Maggianos is always my first in the business…this time though i’ll have 5-7 people joing in….

  • Tkdobkins

    I like to unwind by having a couple of glasses of wine and catching up on my shows!  Thank you DVR!!!

  • Villantc

    The best way to unwind is to transport yourself to a place that exudes nostalgia – an old time, friendly atmosphere with just enough zing to be lively but still quietly relaxing. Yes, Maggiano’s is that kind of place!

  • DeeDee

    We love great authentic Italian food.  Unwinding for my husband and I includes the top down on our red 1995 Mustang cruising the highway and singing the oldies.  Party time never gets old especially when sharing with your favorite guy!!!

  • Debois

    Mangiamo a Maggiano’s!!!  A bottle of Chianti with Appetizers, then Maggiano’s Eggplant Parmesan (the best I’ve ever eaten anywhere), a Tiramisu to share, and Frank Sinatra crooning away in the background, in the company of dear friends, is the perfect way to end the work week. The quality of food and great service is always consistent and makes me want to come back again and again. Andiamo!

  • Alice

    After a hetic month my co-worker and a couple past co-workers love to meet a Maggianos for their fantastic breads and salad…..and of course several glasses of mouth watering Pomagranite Martinis.

  • Ekadera

    Friends and family over a great meal.

  • Margaret

    I like a glass of good chardonnay and my Kindle, curled up on a comfy sofa. Great way to relax. If I’m feeling more social, drinks and appetizers at Maggiano’s is a great alternative! We’ve had many a nice evening socializing with friends at some of your wine dinners, or just a night out. Would love to win this chance to unwind!

  • Tx

    A Mouthwatering Maggiano’s meal, a decadent dessert ( I like Tiramisu) great conversation and burn it all off by dancing afterwards to some upbeat, hot tempo Latin Jazz!  Only thing better than that is closing on a real estate deal!  :-)

  • Ljlangan

    My idea of unwinding is getting lots of wet kisses from my furry babies and them barking and meowing at me telling me how their day went.. Then working out with one of my best friends or running by myself listening to music.

  • Linda

    When I can not be sitting on the beach, I like to sit on the patio with a nice glass of Sangria or a Margarita with friends and family, before dinner.  It may not seem like much but when you are away from them for awhile you understand just how much you miss  it and really do appreciate it!

  • Brudnick

    Floating on water with wine and spouse.

    I like to unwind with my girls!!! After a long work week, running around with our kids/husbands. We like to meet up at the end of the week for some “ME TIME”.  There is no discussion of work or families stricktly laughing,drinking and eating.  What better way to start off a weekend?  Good company, great food and awesome drinks.

  • Joan

    Each evening as I returned home from work my husband had a glass of chilled wine waiting and took time to listen to my daily ramblings. Then we would decide where we wanted to dine and if I was too tired we just heated one of the Maggiano’s extra dinners brought home from our last visit.   

  • Rose

    A competitive game of bridge works for me.

  • Helene Fotre

    Our favorite time to unwind, after a long week, is to head to our favorite spot, Maggiano’s  in Naperville! There are six of us, who meet, after Sunday mass, and we love our Bloody Mary’s!!
    Not to mention, the awesome bruschetta and spinach flatbread!  Of course, we always bring home, a chopped salad, for Monday’s lunch.  We lead such busy lives, six days a week….so our Sunday Bloodies have become a tradition, as well as, a wonderful comfort time, to be grateful for all that we have in our lives!

     I like to unwind with a nice cold beer (or a martini) while watching basketball with my boyfriend.

  • B Teach

    One of my favorite ways to unwind is with my friends, some wonderful chilled white wine if my (or red if my friends prefer), and yummy bruschetta!  My friends and often our twenty-something daughters, too, love to relax and talk about life.  Happy hour is perfect for this because it gives us time to be together without rushing.  We get a break from making dinner and the chores we need to accomplish once we are home after work.  Then we can go home relaxed and ready to take on the world!  

  • Carol Kaplan

    Spending time with good friends, drinking fine italian wine and fun mixed drinks, and eating fun delicious appetizers s.a. bruschetta, calamari fritte, mozzarella marinara, steamed mussels tuscan style and any of Maggiano’s flatbreads

  • Anonymous

    We, living at a retirement community may be old but we are very active and love to drink and eat. A couple of weeks ago I suggested to friends that we go to Maggiano’s for happy hour. We filled up our little bus with 18 people and had a great time. People can’t wait to go again. We may need a bigger bus.

  • sylvia

    Being a mother of 4 and grandmother of 2, it’s always fun to meet up with my kids and talk about our lives.  Having appetizers and cocktails just makes it easy to talk about life lessons and catch up with each other.  We seem to be so busy with our lives that if we don’t stop to make time for each other, time will pass.  Life is too important and short to not take time for my family.

  • mort berlant



  • lizphlip

    Drinks and games with friends – lots of laughs and even more stress relief.  Friends are good things to have.

    A couple beers shared among friends. Music in the background, but not so loud that we have to scream to talk to each other. And some food/snacks, not a large meal that you feel overly full after eating.

  • muri

    a glass of red wine and delicious italian food shared with good friends

  • Krim

    I like to sit in my recliner in my house and play scrabble on my iPad….and keep my so called friends as far away from me as I can!!

  • Robyn

    My favorite way to unwind is to go for a motorcycle ride in the country!

  • Zoearizona

    Go to yoga class where, for 60 minutes, neither the past nor the future exist, as we focus on fully living each moment and acknowledging our inner self.  Not to mention persuading our bodies that we really CAN do the humble warrior pose.  Afterwards, a hot shower, a clean pair of jeans and a tee with a little bling, then off to celebrate life with a friend and a glass of bubbly.  Perfect ending to the day! 

  • Windsor1942

    A “board” of flatbread, 4 glasses of vino rosso, and great friends to share the evening.

  • JDS33

    Watching sports is the best way to wind down. Whether its baseball, basketball, or football, I get lost in the action and do not worry about what is happening in my own life.


    Dewars and water!

  • Rose

    Italian food, great wine, good friends, Sinatra playing in the background, and lots of laughter!

  • Gprust

    Going to Maggiano’s with my husband.  We are always treated like royalty by the staff and we have never been disappointed with our meal.  We have taken friends and they just love it there too.  The next day meal is a super plus in my book.

  • Marina

    Doing craft or any project with hands unwinds me while listening to some 70′s and 80′s music.  I love painting, cooking, making cards or reading a good cookbook, any one of these activities relax me.  If I were to be with somebody and unwind, it will be with my husband going for a walk or ride on a bike or practically doing anything with him, as long as we are together.

  • Fappucino

    with a glass of pino and a great, good looking guy with lots of dough to spend on me.

    In the summer I like to take my dog for a walk around the lake.  In the winter I like to start a fire in the fireplace and share the warmth with my dog.

  • Deborah

    Maggianos chopped salad, with crab cakes.  Parked under a tree on a sunny day, car windows down, warm breeze blowing, quiet thoughts, great food, watching the world go by.  Afterwards a dark chocolate covered buttermint hits the spot.  Then it’s back to work until my next get away.

    I never need a reason to go to Maggiano’s, but a reminder e-mail helps….sending it to the “gang”!

  • Marie0918

    Unwind, sit and relax with a cocktail and friends on the deck of my beach house.  Listen to the sound of the ocean and watch the sun go down while enjoying a simple dinner, not a care in the world……..

  • Cshorts

    Great Friends, Great Wine & Stawberry Daiquiris, and Awesome Italian Food from Maggiano’s!!!


  • Bmwardo

    Our group likes to unwind anytime but we have a tradition every two weeks of having a “nail night” where all the girls come to one house with wine and an appetizer.  We eat, drink, and socialize until everyone has there nails and or toes done.  This happy hour sounds like great fun on our “off weeks” of manicures.

  • Queen220

    Sharing time w/family & friends having drinks & dinner.

  • Bob Coursen

    A cool place to hangout with friends and coworkers at the Maggiano’s bar, snacking on appetizers (oh the crab cakes) and enjoying a great glass of wine or for warmer days some Sangria or Wahoo punch.  The little umbrella makes it truly feel like summer is here.  Maggiano’s family style is the only way to go for dinner.  Too bad the pumpkin pecan praline cheescake is only available around the holidays!  Yum!

  • Tepathome

    A cosmo with a friend is always a great way to unwind.

  • Teresa

    Whether it be with a cup of coffee, a morning mimosa or a glass of wine……..sitting out back soul mate/spouse and I in the swing, under our oak tree absorbing Life.

    I like to unwind at the beach or at a pool bar with some friends and lots of time to burn.   When that is not possible, Maggiano’s is the next best thing!

  • Marcus6165

    Dining and drinks with good friends followed by playing canasta relieves the stress and makes for an enjoyable evening.

    It doesn’t get any better than a glass of wine and the love of my life, my husband.  It is that simple!

  • Dave G

    A nice sunny afternoon enjoying a glass of wine taking with friends.  Add in Maggiano’s great appetizers and it’s perfect.

  • Wesela646

    Good food, good wine, wonderful friends in welcoming surroundings are the perfect recipe for everyone unwinding and having a memorable time.  Maggiano’s has been putting together that
    recipe for years.  That’s why you have repeat customers and why new customers become old friends so quickly.  Wanna know how to unwind?  Visit Maggiano’s, the answer is just inside the door.

  • Nancy Bassett

    The beach. Cooler filled with a variety of ice cold drinks. Picnic basket filled with tasty goodies. Good music. Great company. Lots of corny jokes and laughter. And, even some quiet reflecting :)

  • Linda Kolsen

    I’d like to come there after work, knowing I don’t have to rush home and cook for my my daughter, daughter-in-law and some friends…kick back, order some appetizers, wine and beer and then talk CRAP about all the husbands and how they drive us crazy with the things they do or don’t do…and then laugh about it and go home and tell my husband how much I missed him and it would’ve been a better time if he’d joined us!!  But of course, I’d bring him cheesecake because he loves Maggiano’s cheesecake!

  • Lynn Lazo

    Good food, drink and lots of laughter!

  • Lisar

    Great friends, good food, and a favorite  beverage – glass of wine, cold beer, esp. outside on a sunny patio.

  • Cjbeene

    What could be better than sharing a couple of chilled Italian Mojitos with your besties? While you are chit-chatting away, order some delicious bruschetta.  Once the waiter places the fragrant dish on your table, the gossiping comes to an immediate halt while you savor the flavors dancing on your tongue.  If Happy Hour extends into the dinner hour, order the Spinach Salad with gorgonzola, bacon and pine nuts, ah-mazing!  And while you can look at all main course options on the menu, rest assured that you will not be disappointed in the incredible Lasagna, ever!  Personally, I prefer to skip the sides, reserving room for the Apple Crostada…yummy!  The constant chatting only returns when every plate is clean and it is time for after dinner drinks.  Make mine an Irish coffee, however my non-dessert dining girlfriends go straight to the Chocolate Martini.  I cannot think of a better venue to unwind, connect with friends, and leave feeling like you just tasted a bit of heaven!

    My girl and I work the atypical 40 hours weekly. Between that, and traveling to and from work, house duties, children…..etc, we find it extremely……uh……’therapudic’ to sit, relax and be served the finest of foods, at Maggiano’s, of course! My girl loves the lemon drop cocktail and I hover between choices, depending on my mood.

    Even better than all the aforementioned, however, is Maggiano’s atmosphere. Quaint is probably the BEST word to describe it, and the music compliments it perfectly.

  • Katherine

    I rarely get to see my father anymore since I am attending college in a different state. When my dad does have a chance to visit, we always go to Maggiano’s at the Denver Pavilions to unwind. It’s so nice to eat delicious food and get to catch up and forget about the pressure of college classes and distance from family!

  • Anonymous

    Good wine, good friends, and good music.

  • Jody Hadden

    As the day draws to a close, we only let go of the bad
    parts, the hard decisions we can’t always make, and the tension that makes us
    old. It is only in the company of the people who really know us where we can
    let the rough edges of the day be smoothed over by all the good.

    In a glass of
    wine, in a conversation that makes us smile, and in the presence of people who
    make us realize that we should not be letting go of the day at all, but recognizing
    what the day really stands for. The day stands for all the good we remember,
    the differences we can make, and the people who keep us young.

    Hold onto the day and the unwinding comes effortlessly.

  • Krice1

    My favorite way to unwind is with a martini and chicken alfredo flatbread! Sometimes I will share but I suggest that my friends order their own!

  • Dave

    Icy micro-brews while waiting for my friends to show up, then some great munchies.  After an hour or so of catching up, we usually get a table and chow down on your great food!

  • Addr1976

    Either a great beer or margarita, with some peperoni flatbread. Enjoying time with my wife as she sips on a great red sweet wine.

    My wife and I enjoy unwinding after a long day or week with either Happy Hour or Dinner at one of our favorite spots Maggianos. From the atmosphere, great drinks and cuisine it is unsurpassed.
    The staff in general makes this such a great and relaxing atmosphere. The bar brings the energy and atmosphere of fun sophistication. I look forward to many more visits to Maggianos as well as sharing it with our closest friends and family.

    A quiet evening after the kids go to sleep.  We have 4 girls so life is busy, my evening wind down doesn’t occur until around 7:30 :-)  My husband and I curl up and watch an episode or two of our current favorite series before bed.

  • Donna Donnellan

    My kids had a surprise 30th anniversary party for us at the Boston location last year; since then, my husband has had to work in Arizona,  and we are living an east coast/west coast marriage for the time being.  I’d love to be able to take him back to Maggiano’s the next time he comes to Boston, where we celebrated our 30th anniversary last year and relive the happy memories.

  • Tina Haydamacha

    My favorite way to unwind is with family which are very few these days.   But, to have a chance to enjoy delicious appetizers, and drinks with the people I love would be especially rare and wonderful.  I lost my job in October and cannot afford a luxury such as this.  I hope to be a recipient of Maggiano’s Gift Certificate.

    Red wine and delicious food prepared the the Maggiano’s way is a great way to spend an evening.

  • Tracie_mccarley

    Good company, good weather and great Italian food from Maggianos of course. The warm friendly
     atmosphere, that’s what I call relaxing/chillaxing for sure.

  • Andy

    My favorite way to relax is to meet up with my “happy hour buddies” at Maggianos. We usually take turns deciding which drink and appetizer to try next. The more varied, the better! Happy Hour is followed by all the buddies buying dinner for our designated driver for the evening.
    There is no better way to reconnect with friends!

  • Bob Wint Jr

    My wife and I are on different schedules, she works nights and I’m typical “office hours”, so our down time together is very important; because of that we like to share time with family and friends with great food and beverages in an unhurried atmosphere that lets us simply hang out and enjoy the company.

  • Rebecca Hagen

    The family likes to meet at Maggiano’s for dinner, a little wine and there favorite Italian family style meal. The atmosphere is great and it is a great place to catch up on everyone’s life and create new memories as well.

  • Incubusgrrl

    A bottle of red wine, great Italian food, chocolate cake for dessert, throw in some live music or watching sports on TV and it’s the perfect way to unwind and relax! 

  • John Morgan

    Let’s face it: pressure goes with career. It takes a mindset. Transition from the career mindset to one of relaxation requires a form transition. This time we call Happy Hour or unwinding is not just about a perfect beverage or good friends, it is also about atmosphere. As Magiano’s offers that just right atmosphere for upscale Italian dining, it does the same for the Transition.

  • Misto687

    We have a pool and the best way is to hang out with our friends and their kids during the summer months… We live in NJ so the pool is open from May to September.  Fun in the sun then hanging through the evening!

    My friends and I like to unwind by going to inexpensive restaurants we haven’t tried before that have good drink specials. I went to a new pizza restaurant last Friday and had sangria and shrimp pizza. Just winding down after a busy week with friends is the best way to go! I just got engaged and we’re trying to save money, so a free happy hour would be so great!

  • Brenda Bush

    me and my friends unwind at maggianos in the evenings

  • JaleelM

    Just relaxing with friends.

  • Rich Mikolajczyk

    A good dinner … a good wine … with good friends. This is the perfect way to unwind. Life is too short not to enjoy the fruits of your labor. I sometimes think we are running so fast to get ahead that we don’t take time to smell the roses … or the smell of good food. Keep sending out your emails reminding us to unwind.

  • Jtwolfe_1999

  • Nancy Rozan

    Live in a 55+ community with lotsa friends.  To unwind, I like to read a book in the a.m.  Do what must be done after that.  Then about 4-5pm, open a bottle of wine and share it, and perhaps one more, with the many friends here.  It would be perfect if I could bring them all with me to Maggiano’s for Happy Hour and the wonderful food you serve up, my favorite of which is the Chicken Cheese Manicotti.  Follow it up with a piece of your chocolate Zucato Cake.  Just did that with a good friend the end of  Feb. Mancha….mancha.

  • Shanitanscott

    I love to unwind with a great novel and a glass of white wine.

    Seems we’re more busy now that we’re retired than when we were working so we love it whenever we get a chance to go someplace nice & relax with wine or cocktails and great food while just enjoying each other’s company.  We also go with friends now & then too of course!  HA!

  • J.R.

    Taking people who have never been there before to Maggiano’s for happy hour.

    Gathering with friends and/or family and sharing a good meal and drinks is my favorite way to unwind. Maggiano’s is usually where we meet because of the great atmosphere, food, drinks and service. We always know what to expect and it is a relaxing place to be. Only a recliner and a massage could make it better.

  • Cgshaffer

    Whether  it’s by the bar at Maggiano’s in Center City Philly or in Cherry Hill or in King of Prussia(where Maggiano’s is this huge beautiful mansion), there is no place more friendly nor more lively than here.  Go in knowing no one and come out knowing everyone.  Bartenders with the friendliest attitutdes anywhere motivate this type of feeling.  Maggiano’s and a 12 year old Macallan on the Rocks and my friend with the Absolut Vodka Martini up with a twist and rocks on the side is the absolute greatest time ever!!!!

  • Iceamae

    After a long day of training for the marathon, there’s nothing like little “post training” meal with family and friends at Maggiano’s!!  Then after the big race – DINNER at Maggiano’s to refuel.  YUM.

    watching a good movie

  • Epeterson

    I have a friend who I meet for happy hour, who always tells the worst jokes in the world.  And I think because they’re so bad, I always laugh and laugh.  We drink a little wine, eat a little cheese and laugh at stupid jokes.  What’s brown and sounds like a bell? Dung!
    Why don’t cannibals eat comedians? Because they taste funny.

    I love unwinding in a giant Maggiano pasta bath and 3 bottles of wine :)  We can’t wait to come enjoy happy hour!!!

  • Tami

    A nice glass or three of chardonnay some great appetizers and good conversation with special friends.  It doesn’t happen enough these days, with our tight budget.  I really miss Maggiano’s on Clark St. in Chicago.  It was one of our favorite places  to meet after work.  We relocated to Florida several years ago and unfortunately live an hour away so we don’t get down to Tampa as often as we’d like.

    Enjoying time with friends with a cocktail in hand.  Sharing a delicious meal with friends lets the day’s stresses go away.  Add a bit of music to add to the ambiance and there you have it: The Perfect Way to Unwind.

    Meet with new & old Friends and go to Chef Steve Garza at Maggiano’s cooking classes in Indianapolis, In. I like to learn something new each day and also put friends together. 

  • Donna Perrelle

    My favorite way to unwind is to call a girlfriend and have a long uninteruped chat jumping from one subject to another, making a lunch date to continute our conversation, and maybe discussing the latest book we are reading. Of course that lunch would be at our favorite resturant Maggiano’s for eggplant parm….UMMM!!!

  • Joe Edgerton

    I’d So Love To Unwind With a Few Friends Enjoying Some Saturday Afternoon College Football a Few Cold One’s and Some Chicken Saltimboca or Maybe Some Rigatoni “D” But Definately Start With Some Crispy Zuchinni Fritte Because Nothin Better To Do Than Hang With Good Friends Watching College Football and Enjoying MAGGIANOS, Whether I’m Picked or Not I’ll Still Be a Repeat Offender at Maggianos Cuz I Love The Food, The Service and The Atmosphere Keep Up The Good Work, One of Your Biggest Fans Joe Edgerton…

  • Beachsidelcb

    I work full time and the mother of 10. When I get home at 1 am a hot bath in the jacuzzi bathtub with a glass of wine and a book is the perfect relaxation at times. House quiet. Others its sitting outside(we live in the woods) with the whole family and a few of the kids friends enjoying our beverage of choice and Sunday dinner in the back yard. The sound of talking and laughter can be just as relaxing. Sunday dinner is the time to try to outcook each other so good food, drinks, and good family. Perfection!

  • Tyejay313

    After a long week I like to get together with family and friends to share a great meal (at Maggianos ) have a great cocktail and share storys as well as laughs. There is not a better way to unwind!! When you have a great meal it sets the tone for the rest of the night. Good food, Good drinks with family and friends at a great place ( Maggiano’s) what a way to unwind ;  )



  • Amy

    I love to hang out with friends, catch up, have a glass of wine and unwind!  Life is so crazy we don’t do enough of this.  My friends deserve the opportunity since they have been sticking by me for 3 years while I looked for a job.  I just landed January 1 of this year!

  • Rorotvcr57

    No better place for wife and mother who is tired after working all day to go to Maggiano’s and have dinner and glass or two of wine and come home with dinner all made for the next day also…even at 54 one still needs to unwind and have a happy hour…that never gets old….

  • Jerry Clark

    I travel as a consultant away from home 5 nights a week but my wife and I love Chef Brians cooking demos so much once a month we drive 1.5 each way hours to spend a morning togethe at one of the cooking demos in Cleveland. We then have lunch at Maggianos after the class before heading home. We find Chef Brians classes veryhelpful informative and entertaining, and attending as a couple allows us to share the experience in all a very very nice day.

  • Wayne and Mary Beth

    In the comment from Wayne and Mary Beth, somehow, it did not print the way I wrote it.  It should read—My wife and I enjoy our “dates” twice a week.  We like to sit at the bar and start with martinis with an appetizer.  Then, we enjoy a nice bottle of vino with our Italian dinners at Maggiano’s.

  • Jdrew70

    Changing into my favorite sports team sweatshirts and yoga pants, waiting for my husband to get home from work, with a nice glass of pinot noir or cocktail, as well as one for him, and some great snacks–veggies and hummus, flatbreads, fresh italian bread with a plate of olive oil and parmesan cheese for dipping, or simply guacamole and chips–this routine puts us in what I call our ”download” mood where we go over our days events, troubles, and what we’re looking forward to in the coming days/weekend. In spring and summer our close neighbors do a spontaneous happy hour on Fridays/Saturdays, with our special “mascot” set up by the driveway of whoever’s hosting, everyone brings their own beverage and snack to pass.

  • Dolores

    Good food, cool drinks and great company make for the perfect happy hour!

    It’s all about the company and the atmosphere, Getting your friends together to just talk, have some laughs and forget about the stress of the day, the week, the month, whatever has been building up. It’s a fantastic thing to enjoy a bottle of wine, between friends and enjoy the surroundings, and since I was introduced to Maggiano’s it’s been a great place to unwind.

  • Mazzle

    I usually start the night off at Maggiano’s with your Bruschetta and stuffed mushrooms. From there I usually order the baked ziti. & if I have room after that, I try to squeeze in the Tiramisu. Consuming those menu items alone is the ONLY way to unwind after a stressful day.

  • Prompala1953

    Having a nice glass of wine and enjoying everything Maggiano’s has to offer. You cannot go wrong on any of their dishes. We love the family style dinner. We always take people there for their birthday. Chow down……The waiters and waitress’s are always so accomodating and as soon as you walk in your are greeted by very friendly people. On the way out grab a mint…..Maggiano’s is the Italian Delite……..Better than little Italy…..

    Nothing is better than leaving a very unsatisfying job, and having an ice cold beer, to just relax and put the cares and worries of the day away for the day. A bit of conversation, or even just to people watch for an hour, can make the day seem so much better

We then get seated quickly and chow down on the chopped salad-creamy potato chicken soup aznd most of the time the two for one pasta specials.Excellent food-ambience and good service.Maggiano’s cannot be beat.

    P.S. cheese with wine too :)

  • Damica Jackson

    My friend and I get up on Saturday mornings and leave the kids with our husbands. We go window shopping and just hang out. We pick a restaurant and get lunch. It doesn’t seem like much but those four hours recharge our batteries. We try to do this at least once a month.

    in the summer its a nice cold pina colada!

  • Drmarinaccio

    Being of Italian heritage I should live as my ancestors. The traditional Italian lifestyle of my grandparents and parents was balanced and everything in moderation. Honestly, I never unwind! If I am not working I am sleeping. Actually I feel as though I need to “rewind” rather than “unwind”. However, if I could enjoy life if only for a “happy hour” it would be surrounded by good friends and relatives in a friendly, comfortable, savory environment filled with the smells of aging cheese, sauce, and wine like the villages of my forefathers.

  • Scootin62

    Great food, drinks, dessert, atmosphere and most of all people you are with makes the best way to unwind!

  • Rhonda Leeson

    I find that I am able to unwind best through my family and friends. Being amongst my favorite people allows for me to relax not only physically but also my mind. Being surrounded by love and contentment brings me to a place where I can find the peace & solitude to naturally unwind. Joining together with our family and friends in an atmosphere of bubbly good cheer, spectacular food & spirits and service with a smile really can take ones mind off the day to day stresses of life.
    NO better place to take you and your mind to than Maggiano’s to unwind! Eat, drink, laugh & be happy.. Cheers!

  • Joan Squicciarini

    We love going to Maggianos and especially enjoy taking out of town relatives and friends there.  We can sit down, relax and wait for our guests to taste the dish they ordered and then wait for the comments from them!  The most recent visit, about a week ago, was with people from Long Island, N.Y.  They couldn’t stop raving about the food and the deals, such as take home a meal, just floored them!  They couldn’t believe  it.  One relative, who absolutely loves an Italian restaurant in N.Y., commented that he was going to tell the owner of that restaurant that he found a restaurant who has much better food and some rally great food.  We couldn’t believe it, because this man is always ranting and racving about how wonderful the particular restaurant is!  Never thought we’d ever hear that from him!

  • Lindsey

    Unwinding is a gift !  For some, like myself, it seems like it’s almost impossible to finally let yourself unwind.  Once I almost get to my breaking point, my body & mind finally say enough is enough and at last, I unwind.  If only for a little while, I forget all of my troubles and everything that is constantly worrying me by losing myself in conversation. I know that sounds a little weird, but talking is my therapy.  It’s amazing how differently you can feel when you can simply just sit down and have a normal conversation with someone.  It doesn’t even have to be someone you know! Actually, it’s almost better if you don’t really know that person your letting loose with because then you don’t have to worry about really anything at all! You can speak your mind and pretty much say whatever you’re going through at that point in time and not worry about what that person is thinking about you or judging you for what you are saying.  Like I said before, unwinding is a gift. So, my favorite way to unwind is simply talking to someone, anyone, really anyone!!  Conversation is a great thing that everyone should use to unwind at least once!

  • Kschaefer1

    My favorite way to unwind is with friends at Maggiano’s.  Nothing like a glass of red wine and Maggiano’s delicious, mouth watering cheesecake.  Who could think of a better way to unwind!

  • Debra Nicolosi

    My favorite way to unwind is spending quality time with my family. Now that my sons are grow and out of the house I look forward to family dinners. Sharing great Italian food, a little vino and a wonderful dessert as we catch up on the daily life events. Laughter and love always washes away the stress of the week.  Dio benedica il tempo con la famiglia.

    A great way my girlfriends and I unwind is by starting with a little shopping at Bloomingdale’s at Riverside Square Mall (Hackensack) then head to Maggiano’s for cocktails and food…start with their fried calamari followed by the rigatoni D’s pasta (my favorite)…and not too long ago (October) we had great fun and truly “unwound” at Maggiano’s (Hackensack) at their Tony & Tina’s Wedding event!!  You can say we are Maggiano “junkies” <3 <3  ;)))

    Stuffed Mushrooms, Chicken & Spinach Manicotti, Mini Dessert Sampler, Frozen Bellini Swirls = relaxation at Maggiano’s! Throw in excellent service and a dimly lit romantic atmosphere and I am in heaven. Nothing can beat the service we get when we are at Maggiano’s for we feel like we are part of the family! The best place to meet with friends, enjoy some drinks with a loved one, celebrate a special occasion (which we did and they made me feel like a queen) or just enjoy a book with a glass of wine.

    Visited two and a half years ago at the fashion show mall and it was unreal. Great food, huge portions and real friendly waiters. Went back this February and the menus changed, portions now half the size and the prices have increased. Why spoil something that was so good? I’m from the UK and used to recommend to everyone visiting Vegas. Won’t be doing it again.

    I pull in to a popular scenic rest area, and watch the clouds, and the variety of bird life, especially bald eagles. Then I gaze across an inlet, to a snow covered mountain range, with beautiful blue and mauve colors in the sky.
    I take a lot of photos for my friends all over the U.S. and elsewhere, then I pour some wine, and send the pictures to my friends, and feel happy.

    Visited Orlando in December.  Maggiano’s gave us two wonderful special evenings.  We return in April and will be there for my daughter’s anniversary celebration and my granddaughter’s birthday.  The kids will love dessert.  I’ll have a good red wine with a flatbread for starters.

    I am a teacher in an all-girls high school. I know my fellow teachers would LOVE to unwind at Maggianos after work for Happy Hour.
    Do you know what it is like to deal with “drama” from 8:00 to 3:30 Monday through Friday and then go home and once again deal with your children’s drama? We just finished the Middle States team evaluation – stress? YES! We definitely need the great appetizers and coctails at Maggianos! With this awesome weather, there is nothing like sitting outside at patio drinking, eating and socializing!
    We need you!

  • Dawn


    I recently created and printed my cookbook called “The Salanos Friends & Family Cookbook” and gave it to them as a Christmas gift. It has since inspired me to e-publish it, which I am in the midst of doing. I have held several “Cookbook Critique Tastings” where everyone would make one of the recipies to bring and they would give their feedback on ow the process was to make it. It has been so much fun plus I throw in several Italian Trivia Games with prizes and it has really taken off. They all want to know when the next book is coming out, which I’ve started on, already. It’s very exciting, as I LOVE to cook & entertain.

    I would love the opportunity to invite my friends to Maggiano’s, especially since it’s Italian, and thank them for their inspiration and participation, in making my dream, a reality. It has truly inspired me to move forward with my love for cooking. They are the best friends EVER!!

    Now that we’re both retired my husband and I are taking pleasure in many things we rarely got to do when we worked.  We have always loved Maggiano’s and have ernjoyed many special occasions there, including our two sons engagement dinners.  But now we can enjoy drinking and dining at one of our favorite places with our friends as well.  We recently had lunch with another retired couple at the Denver location.  What a wonderful time we had.  The atmosphere is always so relaxing and pleasant.  The staff superb.  We regularly go out for happy hour and would love to bring more of our friends to Maggiano’s to unwind (or maybe wind up).

  • Dee :)

    My first time to ever unwind after a long week of work was my idea to gather a group of girlfriends dress up and meet at Maggianos for dinner and wine. But it turned out to just more than a dinner it was laughter, dinner, wine, flirting with handsome waiters, and omg what topped it all was the piano man. It was all of the songs from late 70′s 80′s soft rock. The best night ever we sang and drink and song some more until the last key was played. Unwinding for me is laughter, fun, just being. That night fulfilled every expectation. Look forward to doing that again!

    A nice warm bath, a good book, and a good glass of wine!

  • joanng

    I’m retired and believe it or not do have a hectic schedule.  It’s just missing the job. I love to unwind sipping a nice glass of wine, along with some appetizers with the company of my husband and our  best friends along with great conversation  in the confines of Maggiano’s in Arizona.  Love your food, love your specials.  I’m originally from Chicago so I’ve been to Maggiano’s many times there from having a wonderful dinner to attending a bridal shower.  It was the best.  So would love to cool down at Maggiano’s.  Have many wonderful memories.  Would love to have some same memories here in Arizona.

  • Lisa

    I get to Maggiano’s in Nashville or Atlanta and it’s always a wonderful and special fun time.  Must have is the lemodrop martini and chopped salad and chicken spinach manicotti and….  I ALWAYS recommend to friends and everytime I’m in one of those towns we go to eat there.  Usually our Friday night happy hour at the bar when planning our weekend getaway!!!  Love the place

  • Joe Macco

     Dinner or happy hour at Maggiano’s, enjoying the great Italian food and drinks. Plan go to Maggiano’s for happy hour once a week.

  • mike s.

    I usually unwind by laying on the floor, stretching out as much as I can, then rolling 14 times in a counter clockwise direction while singing “I’m a Little Tea Pot” and winking with my eyes alternating two left, three right, two left…

  • Janelle M

    We have a Happy Hour Group, traveling to different Happy Hour Specials around the city. Our group have been friends for over twenty -five years . While we have moved around to different parts of the city, it is always fun to catch up.

  • Allthecourts aka/elizabeth

    when i lived in Chicago i was 2 blocks from original Maggiano’s and the original Corner Bakery, where i devoured the chocolate cherry bread often.
    We used to get a huge group together and share artichokes, roast chicken and salads with great wine and yummy tiramisu with espresso. so that was more than 10 years ago
    There was no other more authentic place for great Italian home cooking where we met once a month for several years before moving to Florida.
    Now i get a huge group together and we share the new flatbreads at Maggiano with some Chianti and then enjoy meatballs, pasta, chicken and salad or whatever we desire for hours of laughter and fun
    and delicious food.  The doggy bags are always wonderful the next day.

  • boagman

    Ah, the fantastic unwinding ability of the Whiskey Slush.  It’s also the *only* way that I enjoy the beverage of whiskey.  It contains pineapple juice, Canada Dry ginger ale, and, of course, the whiskey, all in large quantities.  You mix the concoction, and freeze it for a minimum of two days.  Of course, the alcohol in the whiskey will never really freeze hard, so in two  days or so, you get a nice slurry/slush.  Into your tall glass, you scoop out 1/2-2/3 full of the slush, and the remainder of the glass gets topped off with Squirt soda.  So, so good, on a hot summer’s day, and so, so *potent* if you’re not being careful to eat while drinking this marvelous potable.

    Unwind, indeed.

  • Bob Paolini

    We always look forward to enjoying the fine food and drink at Maggiano’s. Its a great time to pick up with old friends and meet new ones while we relax and appreciate the beautiful atmosphere.

  • Bill

    An absolute wonderful to wind down the day, my wife and I enjoy nothing more than a nice red wine and Peroni at Maggiano’s (especially during the summer)!

  • Ivan

    When I worked in Manhattan, unwinding included having drinks at several bars on the East and West side of Manhattan where you felt comfortable since you knew enough people usually in my financial industry.  Later in Jersey most of my friends who I grew up with could be found in a GoGo Bar that was owned by a high school friend’s brother, and now in Florida, a walk on the beach goes a long way to unwind for a Pisces from New Jersey.

  • Ryan Bohlim

    A few close friends, headin down to Maggiano’s on a friday night! We like to start at the bar and meet up for a few drinks. Maybe a great glass of white wine, or possibly a mixed drink, and some apetizers. Sometimes at the Santana Row location there’s piano music, and candles flickering at each table. The bartenders and the manager always come to say hello. It’s like visiting old friends here! You’re never far from home! Then in a little while our table is ready, we can have a cozy authentic italian dinner, with the perfect combination of comfort, entertainment, and cusine. The bread always come to the table warm and soft, and that salted butter…… OH THE BUTTER!!!  Amazing!!
    Eggplant Parmigana, or Lobster Carbonara, garlic mashed potatos, a bottle of red wine for the table, and LOTS of leftovers!! Dessert….. crem’e brulee’!!! Ohhh sooo GOOD!!!  That’s MY favorite way to unwind.  ;)

  • Grigutis

    Getting together with friends and having a few coctails.  Talk about the old days and the verious things we have done together and how we have stayed friends for over forty-five years and some of the guys over seventy years.  We don’t get together as often as we like and always say we will do it more often to catch up on each of our children and their children.  We have watched each others children grow up but once they get married we loose track of them.  It would be so nice to have a reunion with all of us together. We’re getting older and don’t have the luxury of time on our side. I have one friend that I met while working and we do have lunch once a month at Maggiano’s.

    a good way for me to unwind is getting my sister in laws together and going out for some drinks to unwind from our busy days. my one sister in law is working and commuting to the hospital to see her husband who is battling cancer, my other sister in law is searching for a better job, and my other sister in law is dealing with a custody battle. god how we love to chat over a nice bottle of wine or have some colorful cocktails…

    Spending time to meet with friends is so rewarding and
    Refreshing to my soul. Good intimate friends to be yourself with
    And to laugh with over life events. Time where there is
    No pretense, no pressure, no worries……time to linger over
    Fabulous food and delicious drinks with great music playing
    And a beautiful atmosphere. That’s why we again chose
    Maggiano’s before a special event This coming Saturday night.
    It’s why my family has an annual dinner reservation here every
    Christmas Eve.

    My happy hour is sitting in a cozy table by the window, enjoying a nice glass of merlot, reading my newest book by either Heather Graham or Sherrilyn Kenyon or Nora Roberts, while awaiting the bounty of Maggiano’s chicken and roasted pepper flatbread. I would do this to take a break from the world while savoring the smells of Italy, dreaming of the sounds of the sea crashing against the rocks, savoring the taste of the grape on my lips soothing my very being and my soul.

  • Barbie Hadaway

    Well my favorite thought when thinking if unwinding is being at Maggiano’s, with some bread & dip & caramel sour apple martini…while waiting on my order for a spinach chicken manicotti. Yum! Then having another sour apple martini while waiting on the best Creme Brûlée in Atlanta! Oh please know while waiting the very short wait for my food I could very easily eat my weight in Maggiano’s salad. Of course the night ends with me full & happy with an order to go. Lol. As always sharing this with friend and/or family always makes it a much better visit, then we get to laugh and taste each others great dishes. Can you tell this is my favorite resturant???? What gave it away?

  • Shamaracres

  • Hannalulu

    I care for my 86 yr mom and 92 year dad.  When I get a breather it is instantly a celebration of relaxation.  The stress rolls off my shoulders and I share some alone time with my husband who is the most loving person I know.  We have been to Maggianos on several of those breathers. We have enjoyed the drinks, the food, and especially the staff.  They are always happy to see us, even if they don’t know us, or you! We always feel comfortable and pampered. 

    My cousins were kind enough to give us a gift card to M and we are so greatful for the introduction. 

    Spending time with my honey,family and friends in happy surroundings are the most relaxing and wonderful breathers I have come to love.

  • Ejsmith774

    Some good music on the hi-fi, a nice cold drink or three, and loved ones to shoot the breeze with…Oh, and some of those yummy flatbreads to nosh on sounds alright, too;-)

  • Bobbie

    Once upon a time there were 4 moms who got to know one another through their children attending the same school. Fund raisers, school trips and meetings will certainly pull the best and the worst out of anyone. As time flows, things change and people move, but about every 3 to 4 months, those same 4 moms will get together at Maggiano’s and laugh about the old times and toast each other’s present successes. The kids are now graduating from college, some are getting married, one mom is about to be a gramma. The food, the wine and the service; no better place.

  • Bonnieflamm

    Yummmmmmm — Maggianos’ blue cheese stuffed olives in a dirty Martini …

    It brings back fond memories!

  • Leeleethegreat

    Coming home, opening up the house to let a cool breeze in, watching the dogs play in the yard and drinking a great glass of wine. Enjoy creating unique dishes for dinner so that helps shake off the day and helps me unwind.

  • Gin & Bean

    a bunch of old friends from Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York meet at the Maggianos in Boca Raton, FL once a year and have lunch and visit and catch up.  it’s the best way to unwind – with friends whom you’ve know for 57 years (at least 57)!!!!  AND Maggianos is the only place we would have our unwinding friend reunion at!!!!!!

  • Smith J

    Going out to lunch with friends and family is the best….Nothing is better than sitting outside on the patio and doing nothing more than eating great food and relaxing with the ones you love.

  • Lady Ganache

    I have the greatest husband and the best friends!  And when we meet up at Maggiano’s, it’s truly an event.  There’s something on your menu for everyone.  Looking forward to our next gathering….

  • Fay Desperak Rosner

    End of the work day and it’s time to unwind
    End of the work week,  end of the grind.
    Where to go now,  what shall we do?
    Let’s go  to Maggiano’s, for a drink or two.
    We sit at the bar to mingle ,chat  and dine
    I look  forward to my glass of red wine.
    The music plays softly, familiar tunes from the past
    Maggiano’s magic is working,   please make it last!
    Then without warning how quickly time flies
    We rise and hug to say our  goodbyes.
    We promise to meet here at the bar to unwind,
    At the end of  next  week, at the end of the grind!


  • Tiny Cooper

    When alone, I unwind by curling up with a good book, my two cats and some great music. When I want to catch up with friends, we typically meet out for dinner and drinks. There is no better way to socialize than over a hearty meal and drinks at a restaurant with great atmosphere.  Maggiano’s has it all.  It’s my #1 suggested location for a fun night out.  Whether it’s an intimate dinner for two or a big group celebrating a special occasion, I always go home satisfied and with a smile on my face. Thanks for good food and great times! 

  • happy hour=lazy hour

    My favorite way to wind down is to grab a take out from Maggiano’s and open a bottle of wine.  We watch our favorite movie and dine at home.  It’s so relaxing.

  • cindy

    I like to take a nap.

  • Pobrien60

    Aaaahhhh!! I have lots of ways~Where do I begin? Should I write about the lavender scented bubble baths complete with a glass of wine, candles and ‘spa music? I close my eyes and take slow deep breaths.  OR should I write about sitting on my 2nd floor deck of my apt looking out over the the golf course with the pond, island, bridge, fountain and white and blue herons flying around. So graceful and beautiful! I sit with glass of wine in hand and I take deep breaths.  :-) OR how about…a massage with aroma therapy. Aaaaahhhh!!! Now, those are ways to ‘unwind’. But which ONE is the most relaxing? OH!!! Wait!!! How about ~ Meeting up with friends for dinner and drinks (or Happy Hour) and having  some  good laughs. After all, laughter IS the best medicine and THE BEST way to unwide.

  • Ateanastasi

    good food, good drinks, good conversation and fantastic background music with family and friends…Top it off with the best desserts and coffee making a perfect way to unwind.

    Dining with good friends. For me, it’s as simple as that.

    Good friends, good wine, good food; that’s the only way to unwind.

  • Ed

    Start off with an ice cold Belevedere vodka martini, mix it up with some casual conversation with my lovely wife, follow it up with a dinner salad and some  spaghetti and meatballs with a nice glass of chanti. That’s just a little bit of heaven right there  : -)

  • Brandee

    My husband and I will come home and watch some Phoenix Suns basketball.  NBA and basketball in general have been our mutual love since we met, and being at home watching a game together is one of the most “unwinding” times we have :)  Food and drinks make the experience even more fun

    Meeting up with friends and having a glass of wine.  Do our girl thang!

    One of my favorite times to unwind will be coming up in just a few days, when I surprise my daughter at a special birthday dinner, planned by her best friends, where I was told I will be the “surprise” guest to arrive at Maggiano’s! How nice of her friends to invite me!

  • Jay

    Why do I need or want to win a Maggiano’s Happy Hour? So I can toast the four men, I’ve lost in my life, since 2008. I lost my dad, my good friend Mitch, and now I don’t have any brothers to speak of. Getting drunk isn’t the key for me, a memorial is. I miss them so much. You just don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Thanks for letting me post this.

Love, love, love Maggiano’s!

    When I leave work I start unwinding as soon as I get into my car by listening to MARY J. BLIGE on cd. When I arrive home I take a nice long hot shower for about 30 minutes and then put on my comfy pj’s and relax and watch a nice movie with a glass of  wine and some cheese and crackers.

    I belong to the Chagrin Valley Early Childhood Assocation, a mom’s group of over 100 mothers that live in a suburb of Cleveland, OH.  The majority of our group is stay-at-home moms and, although it is the most rewarding job we have ever had, there are just those days that we need to get away for a mom’s night out.  The last mom’s night out we had we visited Maggiano’s for drinks, food and dessert.  We had a wonderful time unwinding, laughing about some of the stressful situations we’ve been in with our children and creating memories

  • Consuelo Johnson Gordon

    I’m an elementary school teacher with two young children, so I like to unwind at Maggiano’s for happy hour! I love their POMEGRANTE MARTINI!!!! My favorite with the fried Zucchini!!!! and all I want the waiter to do is keep the drinks coming!

    Your famous blue cheese salad and crispy calamari.
    When we think of a “perfect day” we always know

    I live in WNY but my daughter and nephew’s family live in Charlotte.  We are in Charlotte often and eat at Maggiano’s each time we visit.  Maggiano’s is our fav restaurant for ambience, authentic Italian cuisine, service, bar/drinks and desserts!  We enjoy time spent at the bar waiting for our table reminiscing of our Italian heritage and the way it was as children living in our Italian community. When we are seated we enjoy the family-style food fest and end our meal with Grappa!

    Nothing fancy, just a glass of wine or a cocktail, in my case, a Ketel One martini, is to be enjoyed with my favorite small plate items: calamari and Maggiano flatbreads. They are like comfort food to help me unwind alone or in the company of friends.

  • AmyO

    Oh for sure food, drinks and good talks with my friends outside on a summer evening!

  • Gcalverton

  • Dvorce

    A nice smooth Chianti and some great Maggiano’s food.  That even sounded relaxing when I read it back…

  • Jamdee8

    Unwinding is sitting in Maggiano’s enjoying a glass or two of white wine while people-watching. I try to figure out what they do for a living, their socio-economic class, family size, how long they have been married, does he have a hair treatment, does she dye her hair, botox for either, etc., etc.  This is very relaxing as it allows for mental gymnastics that relaxes the gray matter from the usual everyday thinking.  Then, I treat myself to the Prime NY sirloin steak which has been grilled to perfection.  I am now totally relaxed.  

  • Bea Raiker

    Relax in an upscale restaurant with good friends and delicious food! Bea

  • Elle

    A super Happy Hour spot when the place is pleasantly quiet. You can’t beat the price on the delicious Flatbreads and plenty of choices for drinks. If you’re not full; go ahead and enjoy a pasta – they’ll box whatever you can’t finish and give you an ENTIRE portion of another pasta of your choice free!

  • Carole Conti

    A nice glass of chardonay and a wonderful Maggiano’s salad (the best).  Of course, good conversation, and just sharing the atmosphere of your restaurant with good friends.  I must add that the service is always impeccable.

    Patio, sunshine, good friends, luscious libations … 

  • Ann S

    Unwinding with my husband and our best friends over good food and wine is the best–which makes Maggiano’s the perfect place to be together!

  • Misha

    For a few years now we have been getting together and there is a gift involved. We call the gift “IT”  and “IT”has been going around. Not everyone in the group knows what “IT” is. The person that walks away with “IT” chooses the next outing. Maggiano’s would be a great place to pass “IT” along to the next friend. We have been really good about not letting anyone know what “IT” is until they own it. We keep adding people to our group so it may be several more years before “IT” comes out of the box for all to see at the same time.

  • Judygolis

    My favorite way to unwind is to sit on the patio at Maggiano’s Scottsdale and enjoy
    a glass of premium chardonnay and a yummy flatbread  with friends.   

  • Rakeisha Elliott

    I enjoy sipping wine and laughing with friends.

  • elizabeth

    go out with my husband without our teenagers!

  • Asljodi

    To unwind, one of my favorite ways to is with my dog.  I enjoy sitting down on my sofa with a couple of pillows behind me and my feet up on the sofa.  My dog will sit beside me with his head on my feet.  Then he will get comfortable and roll onto his back.  He wants me to settle for a belly rub then he goes into a nap mode.  This relaxes me with a glass of White Zinfadel on hand. Just sitting there lightly rubbing his belly, watching his sleepy face is so peaceful.  This is how I relax..with my dog on his back. It also makes me laugh, and that’s another good way to unwind.

    Nothing beats people watching with my best guy and some pals, while drinking wine and of course eating at Maggiano’s bar!  What fun we have getting together and enjoying each other’s company and “seeing the sights”!


    I like to unwind with the company of my fiance’ outside on the back deck after the sun goes down. Sometimes we just sit in the dark or maybe have a little light from the flicker of a few tiki torches. We like to open a botle of Moscato and just talk to each other. It’s a great relaxing time to unwind and enjoy the company of the one I love!

  • MartiniChaz

    Who gets off from work at 3pm to go to happy hour to 6pm. I’d be lucky to make in the door by 6pm. Your happy hour prices sound great, but you need a more realistic time period for your happy hour. Most folks unfortunately have JOBS,

  • Gregcconnell

    With some drinks!

  • Junels71595

    We, enjoy Thanksgiving every year at Maggiano’s with family and friends.  Last year I believe there were 13 or 15 of us around together.  Now we want to try happy hour so we don’t have to wait so long to catch up with each other over the best refreshments known to man.

  • Jobar11

    Never been to Maggiano’s but looking forward to being there in Apr.I have heard many good vibes from our neighbors who have been there.

    Spending time with friends and enjoying GREAT wine and food…..

  • Sscolorsplash

    I like to relax with a glass of wine watching a thunderstorm.  If no storms are in the picture, I will settle for time relaxing in the garden with a good book and a great glass of wine.

  • Evelyn Wakefield Goettner

    I like to unwind by relaxing and watching a movie with my husband on the couch with a nice glass of wine.

  • Dave

    My idea of unwinding is to spend a warm summer afternoon at the stadium enjoying a Brewer’s game with friends, followed by our group stopping at Maggiano’s for a refreshing beverage, a great meal and good fellowship as we review the highlights of that day’s game.

  • Anita

    Just the entire dining experience at Maggianos is “Unwinding”!!! The ambience, the food selection, and service…….what would make it even better?  Dinner and Cocktails there with a few Good Friends of course!!!

  • Kara E Bryant

    A bottle of wine and some cupcakes with my roommate.

    Getting deep into an unabridged Alexander Dumas novel.   This year started with Count of Monte Cristo (when I found out that Revenge is based on it), and about to start the complete 4000+ pages of the Three Musketeers series.

  • lrs

    Meet up with friends in a nice place such as Maggiano. And of course have tiramisu to end the day with a very good spirit!

  • Summer Gray

    I love to open a bottle of wine, cut up a baguette and some sharp white cheddar, then catch up on my reading or tivo.  The perfect ending to a hectic day!

  • Becalyn529

    I like to sit back with a glass of red wine and chill with my family and friends…

  • Penguini

    Okay, I relax playing Doodle Jump on my “Smartypants” phone. I am not the most up-to-date when it comes to idevices and apps, but a game like this takes your mind off the bigger things, so I got it and figured out how it works. I’d be happy to play at a Maggiano’s Happy Hour rather than with my faithfuul pooch on my lap on the couch! Wait, maybe it is the unconditional love of a pet that relaxes me, not the silly game! :-))

    My friends and I love to do a Happy Hour on Thursday at 4pm. We sneak out a little early at work and decompress with drinks and appetizers. Talk about what the plans are for the weekend. Maggiano’s Rock’s. Love the fried zucchini appetizers.

  • Jerryperuzzi

    Family and friends sitting at a round table at Maggianos sharing cocktails, food, and stories.  The more cocktails that are shared the better the stories.

  • Jim Larson

    My wife & I had no idea that Maggiano’s would become our favorite Italian restaurant when we happened upon it accidentally a few years ago while enjoying one of our timeshares in the Orlando area.  Later on via the Internet we found out that there was one located in Tampa across the bay and just a few minutes from home.  We recently celebrated my 76th birthday there and had yummy meals for days afterward . . . and invited a crowd of friends to help celebrate my 75th birthday there last year with in between visits as often as possible.

  • Lara Hejtmanek

    get with some good friends, enjoy a glass of wine/beer, laugh and pretend like nothing else matters!!

  • Anonymous

    I like to uncork a bottle of dry red wine, pour a glass, and listen to some acoustic instrumental music with guitar, mandolin, and violin. Friends and food make it that much better.

  • Michele

    No doubt about it…good food, good friends and good bottle of wine. Perfect!

  • Dominique DuBois

    For a fabulous safe and friendly evening or just happy hour you can’t beat it.  Excellent, food, drinks and lots
    of interesting people. Plus it’s a safe environment for ladies.  Parking right there, tons of people and police
    within calling.  “Not that they are needed but they are there!  Good service and excellent prices.

  • Tim

    My favorite way to unwind is to go with a few friends to great restaurant that has a great bar, beautiful atmosphere, and the right music playing … and just set,  have a drink, munch, and talk.

  • Charmaine

    My best friend and I grab a bottle of wine (usually Moscato) and try our best to open it; we have the worst bottle opener and the struggle to open the bottle is what starts the night off right! Afterwards, we sit around watching TV (American Idol is our guilty pleasure!) with a snack paired with our wine. Love it!

  • Maliachristine

    I love to unwind by meeting friends or family for a great night of drinks and dinner in a great environment–just like Maggiano’s!!

    I unwind with chocolate.  It always works for me.

    I love to unwind by taking my 9yr old son and daughter on a bike ride to the park otherwise when time, money and weather permits….taking them to the lake and going fishing/boating also allows us to unwind and appreciate life.

    I love love love this place!!!!!

  • Kathy

    Living alone, anticipating a local HAPPY HOUR puts spring in my feet.  There are so many choices
    but #1 is MAGGIANO’S, the most beautiful awsome restaurant in Bellevue.  To those who have
    not experienced this wonderful place I ALWAYS mention it is like a museum.  Umpteen historic
    black/white photos surround all walls, outstanding interior (should win a prize for restaurant
    interiors) and the memorable ambience.  This restaurant will always remain #1 in my ratings!!!


  • Troopie

    I am so fortunate because I received gift cards for Maggiano’s for my birthday.  It has become very difficult for me to walk, so I don’t get out much.  My next outing and favorite way to unwind will be dinner at Maggiano’s with my husband to celebrate our recent 34th anniversary.  We are so looking forward to it.

  • John_haggerty

    Totally awesome Flabreads.  Love the new Happy Hour!

  • Mary Goff

    My Friends and I love to get together and talk about #1 our families, Husbands, wives, children and in-laws.  Then we talk about how much we love our jobs and then we laugh and joke and talk about all the people and things in our lives that we are thankful for and blessed with… We love to have great appetizers, Red wine or mix several different flavors of margerita drinks.  When we get together we hang out for a minimum of 4 hours…It is the best therapy ever… We spend our money on food an drinks and talking amongst one another instead of  paying a therapist. 

    Thanks for asking.

    Maggiano’s is one of our favorite places to hang out.

We meet a group of friends and drink a great selection of wine while deciding which delicious dish to try next.The atmosphere is always so nice and cozy and the service is always impeccable!!!Maggiano’s never lets us down! We have turned a lot of friends on to this jewel of a restaurant, and would love to take them all out if we win this contest! We will continue to spread the good word about Maggiano’s to everyone!!!Thank you so much for bringing us such a fabulous home away from home!

  • Latteda2

    Friends, wine and food.  What else is needed

  • Becks

    We love hanging out with friends, especially at happy hours. Our favorite place was in Ballard, but after branching out a bit discovered Maggiano’s. We love the food, the excellent selection of beers, and most of all the atmosphere is wonderful. Most places will have good food, or good beer, or a good atmosphere, but somehow Maggiano’s has managed to capture all three. Awesome!

    I love unwinding by going out to breakfast with my family.  It doesn’t happen as often as it used to since because of our busy schedules and the fact that one of our daughters live out of state. Last weekend everyone was home, including a boyfriend and fiance. We went out for a leisurely breakfast, shared jokes, funny stores and just the little things that have gone on in our lives while we were apart. In the middle I  looked around and thought how lucky I am and it doesn’t get much better than this.

  • Chgonowfl

    Had a great time at Maggiano’s last night.

  • Stet Mac

    I enjoy Maggiano’s after work for refreshing cocktails with colleagues. The mushroom ravioli and appetizer platters are favorites, as is the outdoor patio on a warm day. Good food, good friends, good service are all welcome after a long day! Thanks for giving us such a relaxing place to unwind….

  • Jfsillett

    Best way to unwind is with my sisters over great wine and fine food.  We get together once a month a Maggiano’s.  We are thinking of starting to bring our grown daughters, but can’t decide if we want to let them interrupt our sister time!  They can get together themselves!!  If we win the prize, maybe that would happen!!!!

    Just being able to spend time with my friends, my favorite way to unwind is when it’s warm, being able to spend a day at the beach looking for sea glass.  It’s so relaxing!  But of course a long day at the beach means drinks and dinner afterwards!

    My favorite way to unwind is to go fishing. The peacefulness of the lake and the chance to catch a big one bring out the utmost in relaxation for me. Then I come home to my family and friends, sit out on the deck and have a few laughs, some good barbecued food and  a couple of cocktails. After enjoying plenty of sunshine, listening or watching a Cubs would round out the day perfectly for me.

  • Zita Flannery

    A group of us who worked together for years meet about once a month for dinner.  Last month, we chose Maggianos in Kenwood and had a wonderful time.  The flatbread appetizers were fantastic and were shared around the table.  The server was friendly and very helpful and the atmosphere is warm and lovely.  Of course, the food was delicious and everyone was delighted to take food home to their families.  We will definitely choose Maggianos soon again and there was even talk of making it our permanent destinaation.  Thank you.

  • Carmengomez25

    Every Friday we get together with our friends for appetizers and a drink or two. We talk about how the week went for each one of us. We joke, laught…we cry.  It is a great way to remain connected and tune out the set backs and stress encountered during the week caused by work, kids, dogs, relatives, etc. Birthdays are # 1 on our agendas.  It helps us appreciate life giving us a new start for the coming week. I love life, my friends, family, and Maggiano’s.

  • Denise P

    I love nothing better than getting a few of my friends and our spouses together to have a few cocktails and dinner at Maggiano’s to catch up on our lives. The atmosphere is so rich and relaxing, it almost makes you feel like you are on a mini vacation away from your day to day struggles. Love our local Kenwood location.

  • Goldrie

    With 60 hour work weeks, a teen son, a twentys daughter, and a mastiff growing up to breed, our “Chill Out” time is hard to find!  When we can squeeze an evening away, we call up our best friends and head out to have some grown-up relaxing.  Drinks, appetizers, lots of laughs, some incredibly well made food, a few more drinks while we chat a bit more and let that great food settle, then our designated driver in the group ‘rolls us all out the door’.  We’re the kind of group people smile at when they walk by – if they don’t go ahead and join us!  Fun, laid back, friendly, and easy to talk to – that’s us.  Always ready to forget the daily grind and have a good chat, whether with our closest friends or a great new friend we’ve just met – that’s us.  Grateful to discover Maggianos for the First Time on 3/9/2012, for we had the most outstanding Veal Porterhouse and Four Cheese Ravioli that had ever been plated in front of us!  Planning a much deserved Happy Hour at Maggiano’s for our next playful gathering of forty-something ”Kids at Heart”…. Thanks Maggiano’s, for giving us a new place to hang out!

  • Smorine37

    I get off of work, go home and change into some comfortable lounge wear.  Put in a good movie and curl up on the couch after a long day.  Sometimes, I make myself a nice cocktail of a flavored Smirnoff vodka drink.  Smirnoff is my favorite brand of vodka. I am then relaxed until the family arrive.

  • Dee Ann DeForest

    By going to Happy Hour of course!

  • Sharon Nix

    I am new to the area, so I’m finding my way around slowly but surely.  Come 5:00 p.m. it’s a charge to know there is a fun place to go for happy hour.   I would love to be able to treat my son as well as my friends in Austin from previous visits, for all their kindnesses and help with settling in.   My son has been so very good to me.  I’m not familiar with Maggiano’s, but one of these days I hope to come to your fun-filled restaurant.

    Many years ago stopping after work to have a few drinks and an appetizer or two was a regular occurrence. It seems more difficult to get together and tell stories or just relax. Its nice to get together again and Maggiano’s is a great place to do it.

    I would like and love to unwind with there by getting my Parent’s there to dine in because the food is awesome. My Dad is on oxygen 24 hours a day and in a wheelchair so I help my Mom alot with him. It’s not easy but we do what we have to. Winning the unwind gift would certainly be a great treat for all 3 of us. Thanks in advance for picking us.

    We hosted my daughter’s Bridal Shower at Maggiano’s last fall. It was a wonderful event and has made Madggiano’s a favorite ever since. Good food, wine, friends and memories…priceless!

  • Wayne

    Nothing better than grabbing some fried zucchini and a glass of wine for my wife, ( me, I prefer a frosty cold Peroni or Stella) and sitting in the piano bar and chilling out. I should add it’s a great place to celebrate our children’s birthday and it’s always requested. WHC

  • Juddy

    Relax w/ a good book and a nice glass of wine or better yet, w/good friends and that same glass of wine!  Best is going to you for dinner w/friends for any celebration.  Tonite is  my b’day.  So, guess where we will be unwinding!

  • Doreen

    When I am at maggianos with my family, it takes me back to my childhood at my grandmother’s house on Sunday.  The smell in the air of homemade Italian food, the decor, and the magnificent food selections are a total sense memory.  These memories come alive again and totally relaxe me and make me unwind.  Nothing else compares to this.

  • Tanya L Williams

    I like to have friends over to the house to play games and drink wine.

  • MrsJNP

    Now for the TRUE definition of “unwind”… I believe you may have heard from my husband when, in fact, he ALWAYS unwinds whilist I cook.  You know what’s coming…… I, me and myself  want to be able to unwind at my fav restaurant with my dear husband and some friends.  I’ve almost forgotten what a happy hour is!!   Please help to remind me of the good old days of “time to unwind and enjoy life”.    Thanks for the opportunity — pay it ahead and sit back to be rewarded.

    Going out to dinner on Friday with family – to celebrate the start to the weekend!

  • Tim Repsher

    Walk in Maggiano’s and be instantly transported to a different time and place.  A space where nothing bad exists, life is perfect, and the most important thing is looking into my wife’s eyes while we share an appetizer and cover it in Parmesan snow

  • Anonymous

    My favorite happy hour is shared with friends and/or family we haven’t seen in awhile.
    Everyone is relaxed and not hurrying anywhere else. Great sharing and bonding

  • Meriaten Rebecca Long

  • Cnyrsccorrine

    My girlfriends and I  like to all meet up after work on Wenesdays.  Husbands, children and work are off limits to talk about. We eat and drink and talk about our girl parties and how beneficial it is to our families that we take a break from them .

  • Ghensley001

    The best way to unwind is to have a great glass of wine, sit outside on the patio with music going, and catch-up with old friends.  Having a little Italian bread to nibble one makes everything wonderful.  Starting a second round will begin the real unwinding time….sharing stories, laughing together, and enjoying the wonderful outside atmoshpere (people watching).  Maggiano’s is such a great place to UNWIND.   

  • Sylvia

    There is nothing  better than a glass of wine or a drink with something to eat at the bar with a group of like minded people. I find that people are the bar area are after a long days work usually friendly and need to relax.

    My favorite way to unwind after a long trying day, is with a nice glass of pinot noir. I love enjoying a quiet evening with  my husband and a bottle of wine to help send all my worries away. Maggiano’s is a great place for me to de-stress and enjoy the little things in life. It is always the small things that make a BIG difference. 

  • Marcia Goss

  • Loveabulls

    My favorite way to wind down…is renting a car…and driving somewhere far away( a weekend mini trip)…sometimes my hubby and I pack a light back and picnic basket…and will drive to New York…(16 hours) so much fun…just for fun.  Along the way…we just unwind in conversation…when we get there we unwind with family in Queens…near Rockaway…not far from Coney Island.  I love maggianos…its a great place for family and friends to eat FABULOUS FOOD and great Wine.  Love it.

    My Maggiano’s is in the shopping mall.  I like to go shopping and then ease into Maggiano’s for a nice lunch and a piece of chocolate cake and decaf.  Mmmmm – heaven.  That is sooooo relaxing and better than a day at the spa!

  • Erica Simmons Jones

    My favorite way to unwind is to spend time with my husband and daughter talking about our days.

  • Rosie

    If I want to unwind alone, my “go-to” is puzzles – any puzzle – or my IPad.  However, when I feel the need to talk and be with friends, I’m surrounded.  Belonging to several “gal” groups affords me the opportunity to unwind with varied individuals.  One is a Birthday group where we practically grew up together.   Another is a birthday group of ten where we celebrate the occasion, take weekend trips and just get together to talk about children, husbands, health, …; another is a church group of 18 who meet every month.  Our children, now in their 40′s all went to school together and the moms still enjoy the company of each other.  All groups unwind, drink a little wine, ask for guidance, prayers, or just talk.  Laughter abounds and everyone gets a good nights sleep. 

    What greater peace than to know I am among the blessed – not only for my many friends, but for a husband and family who are the best!     

  • Imsherril

    After teaching, mentoring, consoling, encouraging, and inspiring 404 students everyday, my colleagues and I love to exhale together. Those times aren’t enough. I’d love for us all to enjoy eachother’s company at your fine establishment. Teachers deserve to ‘Unwind’, too!

    A nice hard workout, a long run with my music cranked up, and a bubble bath with a glass of wine. I teach high school, so the alone time to clear my head is what I crave when I need to unwind.

  • Berchdavid

    I work in a Food & Beverage. It can be very stressful. I look forward to my days off to unwind. Maggis is always one of my top choices for happpy hour. My friends and i meet and sit at the bar. We will usally order 4 to 6 different items and share. I love the environment and the bartenders are very service oriented and friendly. The crab cakes and zuchinni frito are a must. I look forward to summer to dine on the patio and bring my cocker spaniel. If you have not ever dined under the stars on Maggis patio, you are missing out. My unwind time at Maggis is very important to me, great envirnment, great food and unwinding and catching up with special friends. and order dinner to go!

  • LinggArthur

    Glass of chianti, a plate of calimari, and bread and antipasti along with my lady is a great way to unwind for both of us.

  • Dedrickmartin

    My favorite way to unwind is to jump on the I-10 west from Montebello, exit Fairfax and head north to 3rd street. Valet park at Maggiano’s and grab a seat to enjoy the music and nice ambiance. Have a cocktail or two, maybe three and then enjoy a slice of Tiramisu for desert. This is how I roll. Thank you for the opportunity to allow me to express myself. 

    Best regard,

    I love to unwind in my backyard with friends and our favorite adult beverages.  The men do the grilling while the women sit around trying to solve the world’s problems!  LOL  As the sun goes down, you will find a warm inviting fire and friends playing their guitars and singing.  It is amazing how time flies by with you are with good friends relaxing.

    We just bought a fire pit, and it’s so nice to spend the evening chatting with each other instead of glued to the TV. Of course, we love a good meal and glass of wine too.

  • Melmy42

    My friends and I are very social and always looking for a comfortable, location-convenient
    place to gather to catch-up with each other’s busy lives. Maggiano’s Farmers Market fits
    the bill perfectly. Nothing unwinds us faster that a warm atmosphere, great drinks and food
    to enjoy together. Deepens the bonds between us.

    And, the bowtie aelio was so declicious.  Looking forward to coming back soon.

  • Michelle

    My husband and I unwind after a long work week by putting on some music after our little one is asleep, lighting some candles, sipping some wine over a meal we cooked together. Afterwards we go and sit outside in the Cali air and take in the ocean and stars.

    With manicotti in marinara

  • Bets

    In this very busy, complicated world, my friends and I schedule “we” time when we
    get together and just share our latest concerns, the state of the union, and news
    of each other. Add lots of laughs and good drinks and food in a comfortable,
    friendly, convenient place and its a welcome interlude and safe haven for
    everyday concerns. Sounds like a mental health evening to me.

    The best way to unwind?  Maggiano’s with friends!
    There’s nothing better then catching up with old friends surrounded around the hustle and bustle and the warmth of a Maggiano’s.  From the moment the friendly hostess greets us with a bright smile to the moment we leave bellies full and laughter abounding from a great time – it’s a perfect location.After our greeting- that’s always filled with smiles and a note of remembrance from our last visit (rather than just a “it will be a 30 minute wait”,)  we are shown to an in an elegant yet comfy booth ay the Maggiano’s in San Jose, CA.  We always ask for Miso, our favorite server (the best I’ve ever encountered) he makes everything beyond perfect.  The drinks are great, we linger over yummy appetizers, (always surprised by a sumptuous treat of some kind) the food is amazing, never rushed…(which is good-us girls need to talk after all) no one wants to be rushed for a relaxing happy hour and leisurely dinner.
    And to top off the night?  We each leave with a dinner for the next evening!

    Unwind?  Yep 
    - 2 part girlfriends that need to catch up
    - 1 part Happy Hour at Maggiano’s while waiting for a comfy booth
    - fill rest of evening will chatter and the yummiest dinner you won’t soon forget 
    - top with cheesecake (or lemon cookies) from heaven
    - garnish with take home dinner for tomorrow!

  • Karin

    A day at the pool with friends – the warm sun on your skin, a cool breeze in your hair, a cocktail in hand, chilling to music. Then around 4:00 p.m. throwing on a sundress & heading to Maggiano’s just in time for Happy Hour with their delicioso appetizers & spirits!!  It’s bellisimo!
