Always a safe choice

We decided to eat here after we had an interesting dinning experience the prior night. We wanted something that we knew would be good. We each got a glass of wine, split an appetizer, 2 salads, and 2 entrees for a grand total of $75 (Including a 20% tip). I would say that is a bargain! Yes... read more

I have eaten at Carrabba's in other cities in the past and none of those experiences were good. However, at this Orlando Carrabba's we seated quickly and the staff was friendly and polite. Our waiter was very prompt and knowledgeable about the menu items. The food came out really quick and was extremely delicious. I would definitely visit this Carrabba's... More

Just sayin, I have yet to be disappointed by a Carrabbas. Server was friendly, made good recommendations, Chianti Kiss, Chicken Bryan, Panna Cotta... Don't change a thing! 😋

The service by Hannah was outstanding! She was very attentive and she has a great personality. The PEI mussels were delicious and our meals were very good. Excellent for a "chain" restaurant.

I loved the service and the ambiance, but my dish was almost unedible because of the garlic. I remember being 2 days feeling the taste of garlic in my mouth. Maybe for northamericans that's common but for me, it was awful

Just visited this restaurant with my young daughter recently. We arrived around 8:30 on a Saturday night. We were extremely hungry having just gotten off the plane. The server seemed quite nice and acknowledged our hurry to eat. She made a recommendation on the wine, which was a good pick. My daughter had the spaghetti with meatballs off the kids... More

Our first visit to a Carrabbas and it won't be our last. Everything here is made in house - the pasta, the deserts, everything. We had to pasta dishes which were amazing and finished it off with the chocolate brownie cake... Omg it was amazing! We can't wait to return.

The only reason this wasn't one star was because the food was good. Service was terrible. From the unprofessionalism of the hosts (texting in direct sight, cursing) to the terrible waiter. At one point we had three waiters/waitresses helping us at one time (8 top). No apologies for mistakes and when the final checks came out (once they finally decided... More

Wait was about 5 minutes on a Sunday evening at 6. Kayleigh was our server and she was great, gave us all the answers we needed to our questions, food came out fast but hot. I had the prosciutto wrapped pork in fig sauce. Super tender and tasty. I try to stay away from chains but was glad I went.
