Food there is good, service was superb. My problem with this place is the horrible and overpriced wine. We sat at the bar prior to dinner. The wine selection is very limited and VERY overpriced. You can get the house wine at a discounted happy hour price but it's not drinkable. The Ecco Domani is the next cheapest wine for... More

Excellent food, excellent service. Great location next to Yankee Candle store. I will definitely return here on our next trip to the Williamsburg area. Easy to drive to from the Colonial area as well; convenient to the major hotels and outlet malls.

First off one of the menus handed to us had a big piece of dried pasta stuck to it, we had to ask for another menu! The food we ordered was all good but I was taken back by the portion size. It was a little less than what you typically get at a restaurant like this. The waitress was... More

It's Saturday, we showed up at 4:45 to at least 10 waiting families and a restaurant of empty tables. 30 minutes to get seated!! It's cold so we are all crammed into the waiting area that accommodates 2-4 waiting groups. The entire bar area was empty, not the actual bar because it was full. Thankfully seated...at a high top table... More

We enjoyed a great evening meal at Carrabba's on our yearly trip to shop the outlets. We normally have an evening meal there while in the area. They were offering a great deal in several price points where we received a 3 course meal for a spectacular price. It was delicious and their sangria is wonderful! The staff is very... More

My husband and I love Carrabba's! I was extremely impressed by this particular restaurant however. Our waiter Brendan G was extremely nice! He offered his opinion of the menu and drinks. He was very polite and knowledgeable. The food was great, especially the mussels! I believe that's a new appetizer. I don't usually like mussels but these were so good!... More

I received cold food. The broccoli tasted horrible cold. The spaghetti was lukewarm enough I could eat that, and the giant meatball stuffed with cheese when cut into that the cheese was not even melted. I brought this all to the manager's attention and he did take money off my bill, however was disappointed. I will not be back to... More

Love trying Carrabba's in different places. The food at this establishment was excellent and met our expectations. Presentation was terrific and the taste was outstanding. The evening was spoiled somewhat by our uncaring and not knowledgeable server. She pretended to care but it was obviously a put on. Spoiled an otherwise wonderful evening. Still loved the food however!
