The service was nice but the food wasn't that remarkable. I think my issue is the menu - the food reflects the menu but the menu doesn't offer enough variety for those looking for vegetarian variety.

First off the blackberry sangria is awesome. If you like sweet drinks, you will love it. The bread and dipping oil is a great start to any meal. I had the shrimp risotto which was a bit al dente but nice flavor. Met with friends and we were able to sit at a nice round table so everyone was part... More

This visit was a disappointment. Not the classic restaurant that we were expecting. We tried the "Classic/new feature" combo's which is a good way to sample an old favorite with a new entrée feature. The mahi was good, but the steak marsalla was touch, but cooked per order - med-rare. The new bread was not the classic Italian that we... More

Went to Carrabba's in Hunt Valley, MD for my birthday dinner this year. Have been to this Carrabba's many times and definitely like it even more since they're recent remodeling. The restaurant/bar is very open and nicely lighted, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. We were immediately seated by the hostess and then our server arrived to welcome us to... More

Meh, The food was pretty basic and the service was fine. Would I go here again, probably not. The special menu's didn't make any sense either.

Absolutely the worst service I have ever experienced. The food was of moderate quality and extremely salty.

On a Friday night, the restaurant was busy but our party of four we was seated within 10 minutes. The waiter was promptly at our table for our drink orders. We even had to ask for an extra minute or two to look at the long menu. The simple wood-grilled chicken from the "under 600" menu was delicious. Others at... More

I have been going to this Carrabbas for at least 10 years. Everything has dramatically changed as far as portion sizes go. My favorite dish, Chicken Bryan, used to include two very large pieces of chicken, as well as a hefty pasta portion on the side. Both have shrunk to nearly half their size! The chicken pieces are very small... More

I was quite disappointed in the quality of the food at this restaurant. Risotto was rushed, and not cooked in its sauce, and when I returned it and requested Capellini, that was also cooked too fast and clumpy as though no one stirred the pot... I've had better experience at Carabba's, so maybe this was an off night, but I... More

We were seated right away, the Hostess was very friendly (actually seemed like she enjoyed her job). The waiter we had was fabulous, unfortunately I can't remember his name. Food came pretty quickly after being ordered. I ordered the Baked Ravioli and felt it was too saucy and very dry (if that makes sense). My husband and daughter seemed to... More
