Macaroni Grill Complaint - No good anymore
VENTURA, CALIFORNIA -- We hadn't been to The Macaroni Grill for dinner in several months, so when we ate there last night man were we surprised. The menu recipes have changed for the and not for the good. we couldn't eat our soup and appetizers it was so bad, only the salad was eatable. The service was great and I felt bad for her when we asked if there was a different cook as nothing was as good as it had been the last several years. She apologized profoundly and said the business had change ownership as did the recipes. We told her we understand she has no control over the quality of the food, and that her service was super. Even their new meat balls were not editable. One salvation is the house wine, which has been changed to something cheaper, it is still palatable enough to wash away the taste of the food. No left over take home bag this time.
Although some folks may not have cared for the food before, it's a terrible shame that a quality restaurant with a good reputation is being dragged down so badly
So be forewarned, I with we had been. We'll go back.
