Decent Food, Great Service

Two couples went here on a Thursday evening. One person called ahead and asked to be put on a waiting list. As a result, we were seated almost immediately upon arrival. We were given menus, and within a couple of minutes, Margaret, our server took our drink orders. She came back within a couple... read more

We were tired after a long day of getting ready to move--so went out for dinner-only waited a few minutes but the very young, not very polite girl at the desk said a 20 minute wait-though you could see MANY empty tables from the entrance. I asked why and was told we have the space but we need wait staff... More

Sunday, 4/5/15, my husband and I went out to try something new. We have seen some of the new appetizers Carrabba's Italian Grill has been advertising and wanted to try one. We chose the restaurant in Ellicott City, Md . Upon arrival there we were seated immediately but also did call ahead seating. The entire restaurant is set in Italian... More

Nice to be able to call ahead for a reservation for 5 so wait time on a busy holiday lots shorter. Fettuccine Weezy was very tasty. Large portions so took home to go box.The salad could have used more dressing. The tiramisu was excellent. I would have liked to have seen eggplant parmigiana on the menu but server said they...

We went to Carabba's for a date night since we had a gift card that we wanted to use from Christmas. Being that my husband is a pescatarian, we ordered mussels for our appetizer, but they were pretty awful; either they weren't cooked all the way or the mussels weren't fresh. When the nice waitress asked how we liked it,... More

The menu choices are always varied and appetizing at Carrabbas. We had decent service and the plates were filling.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the past. Each experience has been above average!! find the Sausage lentil soup, meatball parmesan Sandwich, Chicken penne to be some of our favorites! Wood fired pizza always is one of considerations. The only negative is wait time on weekends. We are told this CArruba and Outback are some of the... More

It has a nice atmosphere, and they have a wood stove where they do some of the cooking, but to me, this just adds a nice but not too invasive aroma to the restaurant. It's nicely decorated and we were comfortable in our small booth for two. The booth had been set up for four, and that would have been... More

We went to Carrabba's late last night. Let me start by saying that Carrabba's is one of our favorite go-to restaurants, but our choices for entree last night were not as good as we usually get. My wife decided to try their chicken parm. She had good chicken parm at two other local Italian restaurants and wanted to give Carrabba's... More

I love Carrabba's and have visited this location on a few occasions. I have always been seated relatively quickly, even when there was a crowd, and they now have "call ahead" (well, click ahead, as its web-based) seating, which should make it even more convenient. The food is always tasty, the service is always average to good, and the prices... More
