The waitess (Jamie) did the bare minimum. She did not come over with parmesan cheese, left our empty cups, bread baskets and plates on our table until the last minute, etc. She did not try to connect with myself or my guest at all. By the time we got our food, it was lukewarm. I was very unhappy with the... More

What did we expect? Authentic home style cooking in a chain restaurant? We got exactly what we should have expected...bland boring and busy. Bland means tomato sauce out of a can; it means thickly breaded frozen and then microwaved calamari; it means a slab of denuded chicken breast smothered with cheese (funny how people want healthy and then they pile...

My husband and I stopped into Carabba's with no reservations on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was very busy but we had no problem finding 2 seats in the bar at the "family" table. We have eaten at this table several times and have enjoyed meeting new people. The food is always excellent, served quickly and always good. We love... More

I was pleased to see the addition of heathy food items and classifications on the menu. I had the chicken Marsala and it was wonderful. The small portion was just right. Our server was friendly and attentive. For a busy Sunday it was an impressive and pleasant experience.

Carrabba's is always busy at dinner time. Therefore, we usually get a seat at the counters overlooking the food preparation area. It's first come first serve. Besides, it is entertaining to watch the food being prepared. This time, all the seats were taken. However, the high tops in the bar area had an opening. No wait and the service was... More

I'm not that picky of a person but I like to leave a restaurant feeling full and not wanting to stop by burger king on my way home, Food tasted good but didn't make me want to go back again for another visit.

First time dining in a Carrabba's as we don't have them in our area. This location was crazy-busy on a Wednesday night but we had phoned ahead for reservations and waited a very few minutes before being seated. Warm, fresh bread was delicious and even better with their herbed olive oil. Ample portions made for lots of leftovers. The food... More

We like to go to this restaurant on Mondays because they have specials that include appetizer entree and dessert for the same price as just the entree all other nights. Caught the Tenderloin Florentine special and it was the best steak that I have had in a long long time. The steak just melts in your mouth and the seasoning... More

This place is hard to find if you don't know where it is. Buried in the corner of a plaza away from the main road. Once you find it, it is worth it. Been there twice while staying in Buffalo and had great meals. Suggestion - although they don't take reservations, call ahead and put your name on the waiting... More
