I Love Carrabba's!

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... read 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

Had a party of 14- 3 servers. It took forever to get drinks. Food was served reasonably quickly. Servers were good just overworked - not enough working the room. I ordered Shrimp Risotto - mediocre at best. had 4 shrimp in it and the risotto was bland. Not impressed and we will not return again. This was a birthday dinner.

I go to this carrabbas with a friend a lot and this was one of the not so good experiences we had. I want to first say that normally I love this place and have only had one meal there that I didn't care for. This time however was just bad. The wait was very long, okay no big deal... More

I've been to the Carrabba's in my home town in Colorado twice. They were the two worst restaurant experiences I've ever had, so I was very wary about this one, but had a very pleasant surprise. The service was excellent! I had the lasagna and loved it, but there's enough for two people to enjoy. My colleague had the salmon... More

The food and service are consistent here and I am glad they are here in the neighborhood. I am writing this review as I was there for dinner late on Monday, 24 Nov 2014, just after the prosecutor read the Ferguson verdict on the TV in the bar (where I was eating).

Although we usually avoid chain restaurants this is an exception to our rule. We have visited this location several times over the last few months and have not been disappointed. My personal favorite is the grilled chicken topped with eggplant, prosciutto, and fontina cheese, all topped with a fig sauce. YUM! The sausage and lentil soup is tasty. Salads are... More

I had come twice to this location, it went well, we were seated more quickly than other restaurants in the area. It was a nice atmosphere. The price tag was high but it was good food, little portions.

We went on a Monday night for the $14 special, which actually starts at $14, raises to $15, and then $18 depending on what you order. We both ordered the $15 Chicken Carrabba which came with a choice of appetizer or dessert and salad. Actually, we got quite a bit of food for the price because the regular menu price... More
