I am giving Carrabba's, in Germantown, 3 stars. The previous time I was here, a few months back, I would've rated it lower, due to the server I had. That, and the fact that I had to tell the manager that in addition to a very rude waitstaff, that the veal had a lot of gristle.
However, tonight, was a different story. First of all, there was going to be a 15 minute wait, for a party of 1, due to how busy they were. And, when I left after eating, there was a line as well. But, the helper hostesses told me about the 'pasta bar' and if I wanted to sit back there, or at the bar, there was no wait-time. One of the hostesses took me back there and showed me. What a treat! You get to sit and watch them prepare pizzas and the other food. Plus, dining alone, I got to chat w/the other people seated there.
My server, Nikki, was very nice, told me about the new items on the menu, and actually recommended the entree I ended up ordering. She was busy, but the food came out in a timely manner.
Food was tasty. I ordered a new dish, the Chicken Marscapone, and it is my new favorite there; delicious sauce!
So, for me, a better visit this time.
