At Maggiano’s, our beautiful private rooms have the warm and inviting old-world feel of 1940’s Little Italy, yet with all of the modern amenities and functionality you would expect to meet all your wedding or rehearsal dinner dreams. With 8 private rooms we can accomodate 10-130 guests seated for dinner. Our culinary trained chefs prepare generous portions, which are made from scratch with only the freshest ingredients. Our signature is our family-style dining. The menu items are presented formally by our banquet staff and then passed between guests. The portions are unlimited so every guest gets as much as they like. You’ll find that the family-style setup brings a sense of casual fun to the otherwise formal surroundings and fosters a great level of interaction among the attendees.

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our reception at Maggiano's in the Chevy Chase/Friendship Heights area!!!! Working with Dawn was easy and wonderful--she is always available and extremely reliable. The food was DELICIOUS and plentiful, there was no cake-cutting fee, and the staff is incredibly kind and thoughtful. We had 168 guests with plenty of dancing space. The ballroom is beautiful and has huge chandeliers, which makes the space look very pretty even if you don't have many decorations. Maggiano's is very open and cooperative when it comes to working with your other vendors. We mainly chose this venue for its delicious food, the price, and ease (we didn't want to have to deal with a separate caterer and renting tables, chairs, utensils, etc.), but the reception turned out to be better than we could have ever expected. We still have family and friends calling to say they enjoyed our reception very much. I DEFINITELY recommend Maggiano's for your wedding and/or reception. It's probably one of the best deals in the DC area!!!

We had our Wedding at Maggiano's: Little Italy, in the ballroom upstairs. This venue was absolutely beautiful! one of the main things that drew me to this location was the price. When i compared all the area's around, including a venue, caterer, table's, linen's, place settings, Maggiano's not only had the best price, but it was a huge huge relief not having to worry about how many forks were at every table, because they simply did it for us :)

The venue was absolutely gorgeous, i'm pretty sure people thought we were rich :) the only thing was coordinating with my wedding coordinator was a bit abrupt at times, Jackie came across as "short" in a few email exchanges. In the end, however - it was completely worth it! I would do it again :)

I couldn't be happier with our choice of Maggiano's for the reception. Having it at a restuarant simpliefied the wedding process immensely. Everthing was all in one location. We were on a budget so we chose a lunch packages but they never pressured us to try to do more than what we were doing. They were super helpful in making sure everything worked out and it did. The food was great, the ballroom was so elegant, and we all had a wonderful time. I wish I had another big party to throw there again in the future!

We chose Maggiano’s because our first priority for our wedding reception was the food. We didn’t want cold chicken and asparagus, we wanted warm comfort food and we wanted it served family style. We figured, correctly, that the best way to ensure this was done well was to do it at the restaurant. Maggiano’s did what it does best and served up an ample supply of warm, delicious food for our wedding reception. The open bar had substantial offerings, and the location was perfect for guests who did not want to drive. The valet parking, which we provided for guests, was reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the company rested on its laurels and provided very poor customer service. The banquet manager we were assigned was rude, typically responding to the simplest question in a short manner. We feel that the manager, and by extension to company, took our business for granted. It got so bad that we asked to be reassigned to a different banquet manager, only to find that the new manager was just as bad. Both women were impatient and ill-tempered. In addition, the banquet managers have a tendency to schedule events too close together. In our case, our wedding reception ran right up against a bar mitzvah. When our wedding planner was allowed access to the room, it was in a shambles, just 1 hour and 30 minutes before guests were to be seated. Our wedding planner and her staff of three had to enlist the help of the bridesmaids and groomsmen to help clean and arrange the room for the wedding reception – literally, brooms in hand! Had it not been for their heroic efforts, our reception would have started much later than it did. To add insult to injury, the banquet managers only assigned 2 or 3 servers to our 150 person event! Service was slow and our guests noticed. On a final note, the banquet room was a good size for our 150 guests, but do not believe the banquet managers when they tell you that 180 people will fit comfortably! All in all, if food is your first priority for your reception, we highly recommend this restaurant. However, if you find that the banquet managers are not treating you well, contact the general manager immediately. The service will not improve on its own.

Maggiano's Little Italy was not only beautiful but the food was UNBELIEVABLE!!! We had nothing but compliments from ALL of our guests on how great the food tasted! No one was able to eat the amount that we were given. It was also a great value for the money. After searching around, it was one of the best deals. I would HIGHLY recommend Maggiano's!

Maggiano’s Little Italy was the perfect place to hold our rehearsal dinner. Casual elegance provided a lovely backdrop for a family style sit-down. We were able to provide our own centerpieces and groom’s cake, and we took home all the leftovers. We only wished we could choose the music that was piped in during the evening.

When we were first engaged and started our planning, we didn't think we'd be able to find a place that would serve our needs and still be in our budget - then we found Maggiano's. We'd been there when we were dating, and couldn't have been happier with how things worked as a reception hall. Food was excellent. The banquet managers were always responsive and willing to answer questions, and everything went smoothly the day of. I'd highly recommend them!

I was a little wary of doing my reception at Maggiano's (or a restaurant in general), but it was one of the best choices I made for the wedding! We only used them for the reception venue (not the ceremony), but the staff and venue were wonderful. The guests all arrived at once, and everything was set up and ready to go. The banquet captain found me almost immediately and introduced herself, and the entire waitstaff was extremely kind and helpful. The banquet coordinator was also very easy to work with, and she was great about including our personal touches - place cards, gift bags, etc. The food was very good, and there is something for everyone on the banquet menu. They were also very accommodating for a vegan guest and a gluten-free guest, which I definitely appreciated. The dance floor was very spacious, and the room was the perfect size - it was large enough that you could have dancing with music, but there was also space for people to sit and chat if they wanted. I was a little worried about the music being too loud, since we were in a restaurant, but the staff kept encouraging us to turn it up if we wanted. Overall, it was a wonderful venue, with good food, really good prices, and an amazing staff.

Maggianos was an amazing venue for our wedding reception. It was so nice having a set price for the food/alcohol and being able to get all of that taken care of before the big day. The price was quite reasonable considering how much was included - from hearing friends' experiences with separate venue/catering contracts, having only one person to touch base with about linens, table set-up, room decor, bartending, and food was awesome.

The banquet representative we were assigned, Dawn, was incredibly helpful. She helped us figure out a timeline for dropping of decorations, made sure we got the maximum amount of food for what we were paying, and answered all of my nagging questions with considerable patience. There was a slight snafu the day of with timing (the previous event ended late), but our day-of rep was really nice about making sure everything else went smoothly. I would happily choose Maggiano's Chevy Chase again. (Also, the food was awesome and plentiful. Our local guests went home with enough leftovers to last a week!)

I could not have been more happy having my reception at Maggianos, the place is so elegant, the food is delicious and you can't beat all that is included for that price in the DC Metro area!
They have several banquet areas and they have events every night so they are truly pros at making things run smoothly.
The only problem is that the person in charge of special events changed TWICE after we signed a contract- that is more than I little unnerving for a bride who already went over all the details in length with the previous person and a month before the wedding has to deal with a brand new person. She handled everything AMAZINGLY, however I just found out SHE is no longer there anymore- I'm not sure why they have such a high turnover rate...
