Food was wonderful. Our waite...

Food was wonderful. Our waiters name was jose and he was awesome. The Owner/Chef sat at the table after our meal and chatted for 15-20 min. No pretentious behavior here. Food was delicious not over salted at all. As far as seating, immediately got a table and tended to. Even on a busy night we obtained excellent service.

Carabba's

I am writing about the carabba's in Kalamazoo, MI. And I must say, never have I ever experienced service so increadible horrible as I did here. And for sweetest day, truely i expected more. Not only was our table dirty, but I was literally ""repremanded"" for not having my licence on me when I asked for a glass of wine, (which would have been no big deal to me if the waitress had been nice), but I also experienced a very RUDE form of management come to my table and LECTURE me very loudly because I had expressed my feelings to the waitress of here belittlement toward me. I have to be honest, Ususally I go to Olive Garden but my hubby n I took a chance at something different. After our rather unnecessary and embarrasing debut, my hubby n I got up to leave and went to Olive Garden. Where, even on a bad day, we have always recieved good service and not a snooty belittleing waitress and management!!! I will never attend carabba's again. Its sad that such a restaurant that plays itself up in such a way knows very little about hospitality and ethic.

It's fine

Carrabba's is all about consistency. Consistent service and food makes it appealing for people who travel alot and want no surprises.

I've enjoyed their mussels in white wine sauce many times, and the Insalata Fiorucci is a quick favorite. The bread is always spot on and the service is always friendly, young and fast.

That being said - I find it dull and uninspired. They play it so safe that you're left with few choices to venture into true Italian cuisine. Chicken, chicken and more chicken.

Everything is OK. That's it. OK. And every entree I've had there is usually oversalted.

I understand why they do it.
It's a very successful chain of restaurants that most people like. But I call it ""fast food.""

Fowler Location

Wait was way too long, even with ""call ahead seating."" Waitress was slow to nonexistant and I could have done without the pretentious attitude that she and the hostess had. The food was average, not really worth the price.

Great food and service

My husband and I ate at Carrabba's is south tampa a few weeks ago for the first time. At first we were a little dissappointed about the wait time (1 hour 15 mins), but the food more than made up for it. our watier's name was Phillip and he was extremely polite from the moment we sat down. We are definitely going to be coming into this restaurant again. It was the best Italian food we've had in a while.

WONDERFUL

I was in Tampa for a week and after visiting Carrabba's once, I had to go back. The second time was even better. The lemon butter sauce is to die for!!

The service wasn't the greatest, but we forgave them because of the food.
