Chicken Trio

The food is good and the waitress was even better. She brought us bread every time we asked for it. She brought me more ice and drink w/out me even having to ask. I tipped her around 20%. Keep up the excellence.

The last time it was a mediocre experience. This time it was the same. We were seated promptly, order taken and we ate bread. For close to an hour. I told a server that I would like to speak to a manager, I had already overheard her telling another customer that they were shorthanded, they had a new menu, they... More

We fell in love with this upscale chain about 15 years ago. It sure gives the Olive Garden some tough competition. The food was first rate, all the staff were excellent, the server was both professional and lots of fun. She was also very helpful and really earned her big tip!

We arrived about 5 PM with 4 adults and two young children. The waiter took our drink orders and the wait began. He waited to bring the kids drinks until the bar order was complete. Sometime after that he brought some bread. This took about 30 minutes at which time the 2 year old was a bit loud and taken... More

We went for dinner. I had a basic spaghetti dinner my companion had pizza. The service was poor. We had to wait almost 15 minutes before someone even spoke to us. The salad was basic and small, the Italian dressing was totally tasteless. The spaghetti sauce was almost tasteless as well. The bread was good but the dipping oil was... More

I stopped in on a Tuesday evening and there really was no crowd and the restaurant really wasn't that busy. Although there seemed to be plenty of tables, I chose the bar and then eventually outside on the patio. As it were to turn out the best part of the evening was having a nice table outside. I ordered the... More

I have been a raving fan of the local Carrabba's in Columbus. I have always enjoyed the experience, the food and the service. They have changed their menu many times over the years, which is fine. The problem is the service. When they opened, their wait staff was trained on how to offer an upscale dining experience for the guests.... More

All prices have gone up. Parts of some meals are now extra, the Chicken Bryan use to include Fettichini Alfredo, now $2.00 extra. Service was mediocre at best

If you want a steak with intense flavor, ask for the filet Bryan. You have to ask for it because it's not on the menu. They have a chicken Bryan but not the filet. Filet topped with goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes and more. Won't disappoint!
