Always Great!. We have never had a bad experience with Carrabbas! We love to dine there and for take out. We have always received prompt service, delicious Italian food, and well-trained staff!
What has happened?!!. This used to be our favorite Italian restaurant, hands down, but not any more. The last four times we've been there--or ordered out--have been absolutely horrible. (I'm speaking specifically regarding the Carrabba's in Green Hills. Others have been relatively good.) The hosts have been less than gracious, the servers incompetent! Oh, and the food--actually made me sick twice! What has happened? I wouldn't be writing this review if I'd only had one bad experience...however, as stated earlier, I've given this restaurant four consecutive chances--as has my husband and his parents--and we have no intentions of returning anytime in the near future. I hope they get better. The Cesar salad, though, is still very good.
See you there! I would be the fat guy eating Steak Marcella!.
Man this place is good. We have been to a bunch of them and have found all their restaurants to be clean, and friendly. The food has never been less than Outstanding.
My wife will get fish, or sometimes veggies or chicken, but me.......it's Steak and its good. I have had Spaghetti and it was very good also. They don't have may favorite vegetable though. That would be candy corn. I can over look that one though.
I know food and am not fooled by portion size or glitz and glitter. Save the BS and serve good food at a good Value, and that is what you will get at Carrabba's.
OK....wait. There is one thing I don't like about the place. That is the funky olives they put in the salad. What are those things?
Anyway if you like great food at a fair price with friendly service thrown in, you will love Carrabba's.
The new Carraba's at Indian Lake - why do people wait 90 minutes for this?.
I'll tell you why - it's cheap, or at least relatively inexpensive.
We went to the newly opened Carrabba's at Indian Lake a few weekends ago. I had the 4-cheese ravioli and my guest had the ravioli with chicken and spinach. Neither had much flavor and way too little sauce.
I can see it as a great "family restaurant" cause usually the kids aren't too picky.
But no way would I wait 90 minutes again for bland food.
Nice service, bland food & not generous with wine. My husband chose this for his birthday & regrets it. When I called to make the reservations I had mentioned that it was his birthday & the girl I had spoken to said she will write it down. We were seated immediately. The bread was really good but the salads were very bland. My husband ordered wine & the amount they gave him only filled the glass up by about an inch. It cost him $7 for this? Our main course was veal marsala for me & steak for him. They were both tough & tasteless. The only highlight was the dessert..I think it was called Dessert Rosa. It was delicious! The thing that made me angry was that they forgot that it was a birthday celebration & the foodservers never did say anything. On the way out, I asked the hostess if it was written by the reservation that it was a birthday & she said yes & that they sing to the birthday person. I told her it didn't happen & that I was upset. She shrugged her shoulders & said "Oh well. Sorry." We will not be coming back.
A FAMILY FAVORITE!. Carrabba's is a weekly favorite. The service is always excellent and we certainly get a lot for our money. Our favorite menu items include: margherita pizza, minestrone soup, Italian salad, Mezzaluna, angel hair pasta, and the salmon entree. Of course, the bread and dipping oil is the main reason we go. Carrabba's is also a great "take out" restaurant. They bring your order to your car window. Service cannot get any better than that!
Others just can't compete with Carrabba's. Food and Service are tops!. I have never had a bad meal or service at Carrabba's Italian Grill. Weve tried other Italian food in the area, and it just cant compete with Carrabbas. The Mezzaluna, moon-shaped, tomato based chicken pasta is one of the best dishes Ive ever had. (And trust me, I love to eatand Im a picky eater.) Also, I would recommend the Manicotti with a side order of meatballs. And of course the Rigatoni Martino is wonderful! For desert, you can have the Tiramisu, or splurge (taste-bud wise) on the Dessert Rosa. Carrabbas is the perfect combination of rich and delicious food. The portions are very large, but inexpensively priced. My boyfriend and I usually split an order of something, and we still take leftovers home. Between the wine, appetizer salad, main course, and yummy desert, we are stuffed. But if youre hungrygo for it. No matter what the night and how much you spend, the service is always outstanding. Its also very kid friendly, catering to bambinis interests. I highly recommend Carrabba's Italian Grill.
User review by kyleman2. the parking wasnt all that great but other than that its an excellent place to eat. you get what you pay for definately. they have excellent service also.
User review by woopdeedoo. Enjoyed our dishes at Carrabba's. Pork chops were done exactly as ordered. Ambience was ok but there were children in the booth behind us and they were very noisy. So, NOT a romantic restaurant to visit if children are present.
Great Spot, Convenient Too. Carrabba's is one of our "standard" spots to go. Easy to grab dinner before a movie, and very convenient sidewalk service too (call ahead and they walk it out to your car). Consistently good food, nice atmosphere, pleasant service. Nothing "out of this world" ... and I question those who say it's a romantic spot, but it is a good solid eating spot and one that deserves to be on your "regular" list. Ask for dough for the kids to shape into stuff & they'll bake it for them in the pizza oven.
