The food is excellent, the service was also excellent. The price is acceptable for the meal. The atmosphere was a little bit noisy because of too many people there.

I recently had a business meeting and Carrabba's was my choice. The service was superb, the food quite good, and the server's knowing when to stay away was spot on! Thanks for the lovely space to work out a deal!

Everyone has been to Carrabbas. Mo makes this Carrabbas special. His customer service is on par to an owner. Pleasant, attentive and accommodating.
