This meal is a Carrabbas meal, one you can pick off the menu of any Carrabbas, but elevating the rating to one being one of our best relates to the friendly staff and overall dining experience that made us feel special, and will, long after the check is paid, and we move along.

We have had Executive Chefs prepare us private dinners, and had business dinners in a few of the best restaurants in Europe, Asia, and America, so why does this Carrabbas rate so high? It's not Cajun, is an Italian chain, but we find the menu choices pleasing, for a chain restaurant experience, and the overall dining experience memorable.

Suggestion, think casual, and go sit at the grill. The team is excellent to watch, and if you love the culinary arts part of things, I know they would be happy to interact with all interested.

Well managed, nice atmosphere, great food, and hospitable staff, friendly and efficient.

In Lafayette, give them a knock on the front door.

We have a Carrabba's around the corner from our house on Kaliste Saloom Rd. Carrabba's can be counted on to keep their high standard of food across the entire chain the same. Try the "Filet Marsala" (which is not shown on the menu); but it is the best steak around.

We visited Carrabas on our monthly couples date night. We had heard a lot about it from some friends of ours. It was absolutely amazing. Nice atmosphere. The service was great. Our waitress was on top of everything and we were a group of ten so that says a lot. Food was excellent! Would def recommend it!

We have walked out of other Carrabbas (Savannah, Ga.) but would only give this Carrabbas a 6 out of 5. The Owner/Proprietor has a well groomed staff and well-oiled kitchen, bar, and wait staff that takes dining to an extra ordinary experience. Without notice or fanfare my wife and I were given four separate sampler portions of new menu items to taste and comment on. This was nice, by itself, but the kitchen staff, owner, and wait staff were truely interested in our impressions, and, very enjoyable to chat and a pleasure to dine amoungst.

We were not rushed, felt totally looked after and cared for, and, watching the staff and owner, our treatment was not unusual.

The food? It's Carrabbas, new menu, but all the classics survive and the new items were a treat to experience. I'm not going to say try this, or that, but EVERYTHING offered would be on our order list in future visits.

Chains, are chains, are chains, but not so in Lafayette. I am tough on resturants, my cooking is loved by most, but I can say with honesty a chance taken at this Carabbas is no chance at all, it's a sure bet. I wish I coiuld say more, real good experience.

Our family visited this restaurant twice during our visit to Lafayette and on both occasions the food was good as was the service. For those looking for relaxed dining and atmosphere this is a great place to go!
