We hadn't been here in a while, and we came here for my birthday. I had the chicken Marsala as always and as always it was delicious! They even have me a free brownie desert for my birthday and we hadn't even asked for it. Very sweet of them!

I went out to dinner with some friends during the week. We had to wait a bit for a table as the restaurant was crowded. Their were 4 of us in total eating. The server was very nice and her service was excellent. I had a Margherita pizza and the taste was bland. The other 3 people I was with... More

My husband and I have both held almost every position in the restaurant business, so I always think long and hard before being critical or writing a critical review. That said... we went there for an early dinner on a Saturday evening. We beat the crowd, and were seated right away. The hostess looked and talked like Carrabba's was the... More

Carrabba's is a well known and respected deliverer of good food, good wine and good service. We were surprised to have our good food, wine and service tempered by the musty odor of what looked like a long-overdue carpet cleaning. We will return again but won';t stay next time if that carpet is not replaced or cleaned!!

This was my first time here. Yes, apparently I'm sheltered; however, it was a very pleasant experience. The chicken soup was incredible. I'd go back just for that.

One does not visit a Carrabba's for ambiance; nonetheless, the service is usually good and the food made from fresh ingredients. A few new items have been added to an otherwise unchanged-over-the-years menu - not that this is a bad thing: one knows what to expect and one's favorites are always available and prepared the way one expects. The Grilled... More

We had very uneven service Fri. July 1 at 5:30. First off, they had no record of our online wait list request. Fortunately it was not yet busy so we were seated right away. A waitress greeted us shortly after & said she would be taking care of us but she never showed up again. A waiter finally came to... More

We have been here before and enjoyed it so were looking forward to a nice relaxing meal. Boy what a disappointment this time. First the good - they have the zucchini appetizer back - ordered that and it was very good. But that and the bread were the best things about our meals. I had the shrimp spiedino with the... More

I visit at least twice a month and over the past couple of months it seems to be going down hill in terms of quality. Both from a service aspect and a food aspect things do not seem to be like they were in years past. Carry out experience specifically has not been up to par -- long waits ....... More
