Always great! Fresh food, great selection, attentive staff. If I ever have a question the proprietor - Jeff - always has the time to answer. Have been to other Carrabbas nationally and Novi is the best. Thanks, Jeff for consistent high standards!

I purchased a gift card that had several other locations but we chose Carrabba's as my wife and have never been there. We stopped by for lunch and enjoyed a nice lunch. We started off with the Arancini for our appetizer, never tried anything like this before, it was great. We both had the Minestrone soup, very good. My wife... More

Gave my hubby the choice of Carrabba's and another place. I'm SO glad he chose Carrabba's. We were seated almost immediately. Our waitress was warm and friendly, very attentive. The food from start to finish was delicious. Give this place a try if your near Novi. You won't be disappointed.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. It's very close to us and the food is great. We like to sit at the bar and watch them cook. It's amazing how fast they can make a meal. Every one had certain jobs to do. There is someone making salads, someone on the grill, someone doing pastas and some one who... More

It had been a few years since we had eaten at Carrabas so I was looking forward to eating there again. I ordered the salmon which I usually do when eating out. I was very disappointed with my meal. The salad was typical but the fish was spicy. My husband enjoyed his lasagna, but we decided neither meal was good... More

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
