“good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

the food was good, the service was very good...but there was a long wait outside. we were seated in the bar area at one of the 2 people smaller tables. it's a very long bench with small tables in front and 1 chair. the person sitting on the bench 'sank' into the seat, making eating at the table a little awkward.

“Simply Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

All your great dishes with so many flavors I quite enjoyed it. The service was excellent, wait staff attentive,buss boys busy, hostess very polite. All that and not bad prices. I hope they share the tips as everybody seemed to pitch in.

“Really good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

The first time I went to this Carrabbas was to meet friends who knew of the place and arranged the meeting. The next three times was because it was soooo good I had to go back! I wish we had them in Canada. This particular restaurant is the only Carrabbas that I have been to so hopefully it is representative of the others.

I found the food excellent every time. Whether steak, grilled chicken, pasta or that fantastic chicken parmesan I enjoyed it every time. Salads were also very good. And I love the warm bread and oil dip that arrives just as you are seated. One one occasion there were six of us and every one found everything excellent. Service was also very good each time. On some nights there are special wine deals that are very worthwhile. The wine selection is quite extensive for a chain restaurant and a reasonable price too.

One "downer" occurred during a lunch outing where we were given lunch menus and ordered lunch items but were delivered dinner portions and charged for dinner prices. The waiter was quick to apologize (once we pointed it out) and he modified the bill accordingly. We couldn't imagine how that error could occur since it was lunch time and a lunch menu.

Carrabbas is definitely a step above the regular chain restaurants - nice interior and ambience, cloth napkins, professional servers, etc. but the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. It was always busy (not surprising) but never resulted in slow service or poor food. Definitely recommended and we will definitely return next time we are down that way.
