We've been here several times and always had a long wait for a table. Servers have been friendly and orders correct.

Having been to other restaurants in the Novi area we decided to try Carrabbas for an early Sunday dinner (before 5) and we were very pleased. It is much more enjoyable when its not crowded and you don't have to wait. The waitress tends to check back more often etc. Our dinner was great. We enjoyed lasagna and a meatballs with penne. Dessert was a superb tiramisu cake.

If you want overcooked steak and veal, that is the place for you. My neighbors makes a better steak when he is drunk.

We had not been to Carrabba's for a few months and decided to go just before the holidays. The food was good, not exceptional, but enjoyable. The server was friendly and helpful with suggestions for our group.

My husband and I have been to other Carrabba's restaurants and had very pleasant experiences. That was not the case at this particular restaurant. When we arrived at around 4:30 on a Sunday, they were busy, but not slammed. There were quite a few people waiting to be seated even though there were numerous empty tables. We gave the hostess our name and were told she would call us "shortly". After about 10 minutes a gentleman who had been there before us asked the hostess how much longer it would be before his group of three would be seated and was told "at least 20 minutes." Shortly thereafter my husband asked why the delay since there were so many empty tables and he was told that it was policy that each server would not have more that 3 tables at a time. REALLY???? I'm not sure whether that is this particular restaurant's policy or a corporate policy, but it is ridiculous. If their servers can only handle 3 tables at a time, they need to take a closer look at who they are hiring. We left the restaurant after being told that and will not return to this particular location again. PATHETIC!
