Pricing and services: Maggiano's is an Italian restaurant on the strip down by the Wynn. It is probably THE most popular restaurant in Las Vegas for holding a wedding reception. It's a very large restaurant with multiple floors giving you numerous options for private rooms up to buying out an entire floor. My understanding is that they can accommodate up to 120-guest parties if you configure the room for that, but the "comfortable" maximum is about 100 in their largest room option. These numbers can be reduced if you include things like a band and/or dance floor, so keep that in mind.
Please also keep in mind that pricing may vary by day of week, time of day and day of year; i.e. if you want to rent out a floor on a Saturday night during the Superbowl weekend, chances are it's going to cost you a lot more than a Tuesday night in February, so in light of that, I'm not posting pricing here as it would likely be useless. Based on information that I was given in 2010 while planning our June 2011 wedding, they do allow DJ's in several of the private rooms, and bands in the largest room which is basically a floor of the restaurant; they do limit it to a maximum of a 3-piece band due to noise concerns for the rest of the restaurant.
SPECIAL NOTE: Maggiano's paperwork for private events contains the following language: "A 20% Event Fee is added to the subtotal prior to tax of 8.1%. The 20% event fee is retained entirely by Maggiano's for labor, set up, and administration expenses related to hosting your Function. The event fee does not represent a tip or service charge to the servers, bartenders or other service employees. Gratuity and the amount you would like to leave is completely at your discretion." I am trying to determine if their servers are paid normal server wages, and thus would be depending on you to tip to make a reasonable living, or if Maggiano's pays their staff who work special events an appropriate amount to compensate for not tipping since they're keeping the 20% for themselves.
Their private rooms, and some rough capacity numbers, are (as of summer 2012):
