We love this place! We don't have one close by, so it's a treat for us. We always order something different and have never been disappointed. Everything is fantastic!

Was in the mood for some pasta. Was seated quickly with prompt service. Server was very knowledgeable of all services offered. Appetizers, salad, main course arrived very quickly. The food was good. The atmosphere was good. Would definitely dine here again. Thanks Carrabba's!

The food was well executed for a chain restaurant and the service was great. The interior looks more modern than I expected and the tables were well spaced. You can count on this Carrabba's for a good meal, service, and drinks.

The food here is great, but the part that makes the meal is the service. We love coming here because it's the only restaurant in Lexington where the service is always on point. Tonight, Maria B. was our waitress and she was amazing!

We went to this venue several months ago with family members. Service was terrible, bar was awful, food came out either totally cold or burned. We complained. Manager was, to say the least, not phased. Listened and said, "sorry", and walked away. 20 minutes later, he dropped off a $20 gift card and said we could use it anywhere. Just... More

Food was very good. Enjoyed veal marsala. Waiter was friendly as heck and made you feel at home. Not pushy, just nice. Very nice décor, like all Carrabbas.

I think I've said it all in the title! I came with my extended family for a dinner and really enjoyed my time here. I can't really say anything bad about here. The kitchen staff was really generous with the flavours and the portions, and the waitstaff was extremely courteous! When I return to Lexington, I'll be sure to return!

We live about 2 hours away and we eat here a couple times a year. Not one complaint. Big portions the bread and olive oil dipping sauce is delicious. My kids love this place as well. Can't wait to come back.

I hadn't visited this restaurant in over a year. I was so disappointed to discover that they had changed the house Italian dressing to a creamy Italian that wasn't worthy of the name. I ordered the signature Fettuccine Carrabba's to find that the alfredo sauce has morphed into some wimpy version of a white sauce. It's probably heart-healthy but I... More
