The first time I went to a Romano's Macaroni Grill I had their salmon with capers. I thought it was very good so I had it a few more times on future visits. A year or so ago, I was at the Macaroni Grill at Jamboree Road in Irvine. That branch did not have the salmon with capers or the restaurant probably stopped serving it. So I ordered their Dover sole, I believe it was, and requested to have them cook it with capers. They gladly accomodated me at NO extra charged. I've also done this type of request at PF Chang's. PF Chang's used to have this very tasty catfish dish called Paul's Catfish. Basically, it was catfish cooked in black bean sauce. They stopped serving this dish early on but whenever I go to PF Chang's I always order this and they would always accomodate me without extra charge. Now we come to Romano's Macaroni Grill in Aliso Viejo. I was there with my friend last Saturday for lunch. As usual, we enjoyed their calamari and their chardonnay for starters. But when I requested to have my salmon cooked with capers, they said they would do it for an additional $ 7! Well, I guess it's their restaurant. But, man, we were practically the only people there from 11:30am to 1pm. They could have accomodated us.
Pros: Calamari, Chardonnay & Chocolate Cake
Cons: No Good Entrees
