Carrabba's is almost like cheating on your spouse, without the obvious implications. The quality of food, outstanding attention to detail never disappoints. Whether seafood or steak, their cuisine is second to none.

Our biggest complaint was the wait for seating ... which in and of itself is normally not a problem with us, we can be patient. However, there were two or three other couples, a large group and a couple smaller groups waiting at the same time. We counted at a minimum 6 2-seat tables sitting empty during our whole wait....

We were traveling, it was freezing outside, but we wanted a nice dinner to celebrate birthdays. Hopped in here on a whim. The staff was limited because inclement weather was coming and they had sent some folks home. Even a bit short staffed our waitress was amazing. The salad and bread was a nice start before our fettuccini arrived. We... More

My family came from 3 hours away to celebrate my birthday that nite and mothers day the next. We were seated at the last table just before the back door which was the carryout door (but we never saw one item carried out..just employees in and out in and out with nothing but cigarettes) and it was noisy at best...

My family flew in from many areas of the country to celebrate our parents 30th anniversary. We where given Rick as a server, and it was a NIGHTMARE!! Rick was rude, impatient, and seemed to be bother that we wanted to take our time, since some of us haven't seen each other in a few years. Then he didn't write... More

One of my favorite entrees is the Chicken Marsala - wood-grilled and topped with mushrooms, prosciutto and Lombardo Marsala wine sauce. Fabulous! There are two wonderful fish entrees. The first, Tilapia Nicciola is hazelnut encrusted, topped with roma tomatoes and a basil lemon butter sauce. Second, the Mahi Wulfe is wood-grilled and topped with artichokes, sundried tomatoes and the same... More

My husband took me here for my birthday and we arrived as they were unlocking the front doors. (They only serve dinner) A slight mixup caused our appetizer to be forgotten, but it was promptly brought out after our dinner was served. Apologies were offered and the price was taken off our bill. Thank you for the nice customer service.... More

On a very busy New Years Eve this restaurant served up a wonderful dinner for our party of 10! What professionals! The manager is exceptional and was even helping with the tables! I usually have the Chicken Bryan, but this time tried a penne pasta and got the mussels for an appetizer. The mussels and bread dipped in the sauce... More

This is one of my family's favorite "Italian Grill" establishment in K.C.. The red sauce is pretty plain though, just tomato and not much herbs or spices, however, the more specialized the entrees, the better. My wife's favorite is the Seafood Pasta, mine is the Pork Chop Marsala, and my son's favorite is the Fried Calamari. They have the flavor/smell... More
