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.

Most Carrabbas are well run...and this one in Columbia is no exception. The only abberation that bothered me was that two of the four chefs in the kitchen did not wear any headgear/hats. It appeared the manager (purple shirt, not cook's whites) had pressed himself into service as the food took too long and the wait staff were lined up... More

This restaurant is across the street from the local high school, and that seems to be where they hire their wait staff. We've visited this Carrabba's a few times and have always been asked at the start whether we've been there before. The server then tries to push the appetizers and drinks. Entree items are priced on the high side.... More
