“Carrabba's is hard to top!”

Carrabba's Italian Grill
Certificate of Excellence

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 December 2012

Carrabba's is one of my all-time favorites and while I've dined at several of their locations, this one is a favorite. The atmosphere is charming and lively, the staff are fantastic and the food is always good - no matter how many time's you've been there! Consistency is one of the key attributes of a great restaurant and Carrabba's has it nailed! We normally dine at the bar because we enjoy the activity and the service we get there. We head here for a nice dinner out as well as for business dinners. Ask for Kelly, Tyler or Marie and you are sure to be treated with great care and attention.

Be warned; this place is always busy, so plan ahead and reserve. But if you have to wait, it's worth it!

We ate here for our first time and really enjoyed it. The service was good. The waitress seemed new but she tried hard and was very friendly.

My girlfriend ordered something that wasn't the same as on the menu and they gladly made it for her. I had the pizza which was very good.

Prices were very reasonable. I'd return for sure.

Noisy with huge wait staff nearly trotting on top of us as we sat.

Bread is plain old white, but served very hot. Nice mix of herbs to add to the olive oil, but waitress didn't pay attention to it and we had to ask repeatedly for more herbs and bread. House salad was tasteless -- just some lettuce with unseasoned white stuff on it -- and two little olives. Waitress did bring parm when requested to try to give it some flavor, but it didn't. Caesar was at least a Caesar.
Portions, contrary to Italian tradition, were small. My husband finished his and ate some of our daughter's meal -- which had tough pieces of artichoke that should have been removed. We'd tried Carrabbas when it first opened, gotten a kick out of sitting to watch the cooks and didn't think it was so bad, but the menu has changed, likely the management too.
We were so grateful that we didn't pay for it -- but blew an entire $50 gift card on 3 mid-priced pasta meals with no drinks.
Try Karlos on Houston Road a couple miles away. It's not the best Italian ever, but better than this and not as overpriced.

The highlight is their bread dipping and we could not help to ask for more. Dinner food is also good as well. However, a little bit salty to me. The atmosphere is nice. You could see chiefs cook at your table. The staffs are friendly. Overall, it was a good experience.
