“Excellent Service and Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were very pleased with a relaxing dinner at Carrabba's. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. The fresh-baked bread and olive oil made a delicious appetizer. The salads were just right and the entrees delicious. We had enough food that we took half of it home for a meal the next day. We did not make it to desserts, but look forward to trying them on our next visit.

“Okay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

My past experiences with Carrabba's has always been wonderful. I am a huge Carrabba's fan. Luke was my server and he gave us EXCELLENT service. The management, however, I found to be RUDE and Impersonal. This woman came up to our table to check on how everything was and before we could even answer her question, she walked away. I ordered a pomegranate martini and it tasted like a grapefruit martini??

My food was delicious as usual and like I said, the server was wonderful. I was not impressed with the management or the bar staff.

Great food, wonderful staff, fantastic atmosphere. We've had everything on the menu, and nothing has ever been bad. Personal favorite: Chicken Marsala!

“It's a Carrabba's with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's a chain; you know what the menu is going to be.

The service was fast and friendly on a Saturday night. They were busy but our wait for a dinner table was only 10 minutes. If we had wanted, there were open seats at the pasta bar for immediate seating, but we wanted a table.

We were pleased with the service. On a busy night there is always the concern of understaffing and the associated poor service. That did not happen. The waitress was prompt and attentive. She kept our soft-drink glasses full and that always scores points with wifey.

The food was good, reasonably priced, and well-served. What more can you ask for?
