Went there on Valentine's day with my family. We did not have a reservation. But they asked if we didn't mind sitting outside. The indoor dining was full. They greeted us and sat us down promptly. We were seen by the waiter and served our drinks and bread soon. The waiter Xavier was knowledgeable about the food on the menu... More

Severs are all over the place, not experienced and knowledgeable about their menu. Server last night did not know if she had bottled still water (how... More

My husband and I visited Carrabbas for a late lunch. The place was packed with Christmas parties. Fortunately there was one table available. Steven M was our waiter. He was outstanding. I work for a 5 star resort so I fully understand that level of service. Steven was personable and professional throughout. They were still serving off the lunch menu... More

Carrabba's is usually one of those restaurants that I visit frequently. I look for it wherever I travel. Everyone in the family seems to agree on a food that they enjoy there. I updated my last review of this restaurant, though; because I feel that the service at the Miami Lakes location has changed. When we got there (and sat... More

In the corner of the shopping center the restaurant looks very nice inside; appeared clean and neat. A friendly server came quickly with water. The salad was crisp and the pasta was good also. They have an adequate wine list and a bar.

My husband and I spent $71 plus tip for 2 quartino wines, an order of wings (pretty good), 1 SUPER DRY pork marsala and 1 pasta with MINI shrimp and microscopic FISHY "scallops". My parents ordered the trio combo and spent $22 each on each plate which is smaller and more expensive than before. The chicken was dry in both... More
