Going to this Carrabas Italian Restaurant is always a great experience. The food is fabulous especially the Chicken Trio and the Salmon. The service is the best! We had an opportunity to meet the managers Dana, Ray and John. They made us feel very welcome. They make sure that things run smoothly. Our server was Abe and the service was... More

The food was good, the service excellent and the atmosphere enjoyable. Hubby had the lasagna and I had linguine Alfredo. Both were excellent We started with the lentil soup which was very good. I could of made a meal with just the soup. I would dine here again.

My brother had called a few weeks ago to see about bringing 11 people here Christmas Eve. They told him they have a back room they would reserve for us at 7:00 that evening. My brother and sister-in-law had even called a few days prior to confirm everything and see if it was ok to drop a birthday cake off.... More

Om: I had NEVER eaten at a Carrabba’s before, and I had heard some good things here and there. • Service – Met Expectations – Service was solid and the waitress has good energy and recommendations. We were seated immediately and our food... More

We ate here the night before the Plano Balloon Festival Half Marathon. The service was great, the food was typical for a chain Italian food restaurant. No surprises, which is also why we choose this restaurant, consistency with other Carrabba's experiences.

This location has the most wonderful service and great menu. They also make good Italian Cream Sodas. We have enjoyed every lunch/dinner we've had at this CARRABBAS. This is a well run restaurant and has a fantastic staff and delicious Italian food.

We had my son-in-laws birthday dinner here. There was 8 of us, including one baby and one 6 year old. Our server was Ashton. She was superb and quite pretty. (Give me a break, I'm 71 and can still say things like that). My son-in-law got tea and his glass never ran dry. No "Happy Birthday" song at OUR request.... More

Would have given this restaurant and excellent, except the steak was full of grizzle and fat. It was hard to eat. Great Wine, Zucchini Fritte, Salads. My wife enjoyed her Fettuccine Carrabba meal. The wonderful service and atmosphere made the meal very comfortable. The butter spice steak cover was too spicy for me.

I gave my kid three options for Italian restaurants for his birthday. He chose Carrabbas and I was not very happy because the other two menus look more fancy. However, after I have been here for a family dinner, I have to say this is the right choice and I have no regret for it. All dishes seem to be... More

The food is pretty good but as far as Italian chains go, I prefer Olive Garden. The service is never great. The bread is tasty, but they seem to hesitate refilling it.
