Unprepared for a group lunch

Carrabba's was chosen as the restaurant for my work team holiday lunch. I called them 6 times to make a reservation and in fairness, two of those times were the initial call and again to change the date. I was either put on hold or told to call back later the other four times. After being... read more

We were looking for a place to have dinner on a Friday night. We were a group of 12. Someone said Carrabba's. I figured it was a safe bet. I've eaten in many of them and they're ok. Not this one. The food came out cold, the service was slow and I'm still waiting for the Merlot I asked for... More

We recently had a light dinner at Carrabba's. The Italian lentil and sausage soup was very enjoyable, followed by an entree sized Caesar Salad with grilled Shrimp and Scallops. The food was served warm and on time. We all had a fun evening.

We had eaten at this location on quite a few prior occasions but on the evening of our most recent visit found it short staffed and unfortunately there was a problem between the waitstaff and the kitchen. Our food was cold when it finally got to us. Management seemed to know there was a problem and discounted the bill. Not... More

We visited this Carrabas on a Saturday afternoon and were a little disappointed. The salad had some brown lettuce, the tomato soup was course and the coffee was served in cold ceramic cups making it tepid. Fear Factor was playing on the bar TV showing people eating strawberrys while being attacked by insects. Meanwhile the server was setting up the... More

Went on a Wednesday night in January and service and food was good. Had been a couple months prior on the weekend and one attraction is that it is not crowded like the nearby restaurants on Two Notch Road. Personally believe Carrabba's is a step up from Olive Garden and not nearly as crowded.

The food was delicious as always, service by our waitress (who was in training) was superb, however, the roach crawling on the wall then jumping on to the seat of my booth after the meal was absolutely disgusting. The manager couldn't be bothered to come to our table to see what the issue was even though he/she was told about... More

My wife and I had dinner here on 10/05. The tilaian salad I was served was many days old - brown and wilted lettuce throughout. Unfortunately, I was talking to my wife and did not notice until I had a mouthful of nasty tasting lettuce. My wife's wine was corked (she refused to complain however). When I pointed out the...

I go to carrabas mostly to eat their succulent aragula salad. The entree is usually the afterthought. I also enjoy their bread and dip. Service is always great. The atmosphere is nice too.
