not what I'd been led to believe, found one or two staff members not interested in whether we wished to order, and when our starter arrived it had been sloshed about like a soup.. Won't be back and wouldn't reccomend

I wish we had started here on this business trip as I would have liked to make a second trip here. I thought the food was excellent though my collogue found her salmon to be a bit dry in the center. She did however comment that she quite enjoyed the roasted grapes as it was her first time eating them.... More

Had another good Carrabas experience. Great warm bread with olive oil and balsamic. Good spicy chicken soup. Carrabas has my favorite chicken Marsala. Great meal!

Food: We had a tasting menu of sorts with 8 dishes (smaller portions) including a few appetizers, a few entrees, and a few desserts. All in all, the food was actually really good. The flavors were particularly excellent (we really liked the Arancini, the chicken Bryan, the prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin, and the Tagliarini pasta) although there were occasional issues...

Hubby and I hadn't been here since before the renovations, but apparently there were more changes than the decor. Still fantastic service, but at these prices that is to be expected. The salads and appetizers (mozzarella marinara sticks were good as usual...BUT the entrees were SO VERY DISAPPOINTING. My favorite meal is The Johnny (Chicken Bryan and Steak Marsala) and... More

Visited this location last night (Friday) with friends. We had reservations so we didn't have to wait. Order drinks and asked for light liquor so it wasn't to strong. The drink was never served and when I asked for it a second time it was served very strong with the liquor on the bottom. Appetizers were good (cheese sticks, goat... More

Many years ago we had a sour experience at a Carrabba's in North Canton, OH...server was VERY condescending...and had never wanted to go back again. Because we had a gift card that was valid here, we decided to try this location while traveling, and we're so happy that we did! We were seated promptly, and our waiter (Rashad) appeared quickly....

Carrabba's meets all your requirements for a good meal, regardless of the time of day, and the price is reasonable. Waiters and Bartender were adequately trained, food was of a good quality and the value of the meal was well worth the expense. Highly recommend.

This place was packed, and the food was excellent. My plate was $22.00, and I cannot complain about the food at all. The service was prompt however, more like "U want fries with that?" in a sharp tone instead of "our sides are ......" in a more appropriate method of speaking. Very poor service for that price.

This was my first experience with Carrabba’s and I know I won’t hesitate to go back again. I had hoped to meet some clients here but that didn’t work out but I decided to go ahead and have my dinner here anyway. The waiter was knowledgeable, informative, not too casual but still friendly, and attentive to a single diner. The... More
