“Quick & Easy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

If you are looking for a quick relaxing meal on a weeknight, this is it. It's not that packed and usually seated immediately and served very quick. I like that it is not a loud place. The food is a bit overpriced but they have some deals sometimes.

“BLAH!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Over rated and part of the franchise atmosphere. Neighborhood restaurant and not in Miami Lakes. T
There are many fine restaurants throughout Miami Lakes and many within walking distance of hotels.

“Have not and will not return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Food is good...but pricey.. too pricey for too little and service poor. It is a shame because I have been to other Carraba's with good service. Bonefish Grill in Weston off I75 has good food, great atmosphere and better service. I would rather drive a little farther and spend my money on a place that warmly welcomes me and treats me well.

“Always a good experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I was surprised to read the terrible reviews about this Carabba's in Miami Lakes. We always sit at the bar, get great service and enjoy the food. No, it's not gourmet dining, it's a chain. But the food is consistent, the restaurant is clean and we've always had great service at the bar!

“Rude hostess with a bad manager = why is one of the worst restaurants in Miami Lakes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Were to begin?
Rude hostess taking our utensils away while telling us we are moving to accommodate a large group. Then the table is left unoccupied for over 20 minutes.
2 servers who couldn't get it right
Umbrella left during the move to another table and instead of bringing it to us they put it in the lost and found. I guess it was too much work.
Manager? He isn't typical of the Carraba's manager. As he put it "I won't bother".
Stay away and maybe this location will close but hopefully new management and new staff will help.
