Though this is a chain, the food is slightly above avg but at below avg pricing if one gets their specials. Service was upbeat and engaging.

As an Italian, I can say without any reservation that Carrabba’s is the real deal! My wife and I have enjoyed great meals each and every time we've visited. A decent wine menu, side dishes, and a variety of main dishes. We like that something new is added to the menu. You will enjoy and return for more!

It was there so we went. It was the typical loud, overly busy place. Location is convenient to shopping and xway which keeps it busy.

I went here with a friend for lunch. The place looked closed from the outside when we went but we got service immediately. The selection is pretty good and the food was great.

Came for dinner during a non busy time. We ordered steak marsala, veal marsala, and lasagna. All were served very dry and overcooked. The marsala sauce was good, but the filet and veal were not good quality. The lasagna had sat under a heat lamp too long and had to be cut with a knife. We had mozzarella sticks as... More

Carrabba's is our favorite restaurant but this one in Novi has put a bad taste in our mouths! The service was very slow, over 10 minutes after we were seated before a waitress came by to give us menus but walked away without taking our drink order. Almost 10 minutes again before she came back for drink orders. We tried... More

Went there for lunch. As we entered there was a foul bathroom smell. We were seated and the smell was still there. We were waiting for the server and freezing. The A/C was blowing on us. Very cold air. We decided that freezing and smelling bathroom odor would not make for a good lunch experience, so we left. The host... More

Carrabba's is a good place to go to grab a dinner that won't disappoint. Maybe not great, but clearly better than avg. Service here has always been better than expected too. Casual and friendly and not pretentious.

Had dinner her on a Sunday night. Was not busy still the service was poor. Server was friendly, but disappeared. Think she spent more time in the back talking than checking on us and our drinks and food. The food was good but based on the service I would not recommend the place nor would I go back. There are...
