Raleigh >Carrabba's Italian Grill
Typical Chain Restaurant But Not Bad. A typical chain restaurant so don't believe this is the "best Italian food Raleigh has to offer". However, it's not bad - service is OK and very polite. Atmosphere is like a gym, but again, this is a chain place not meant for a romantic evening with a date and is usually very busy. I've been to several and would not discourage them. Food is grilled and on the spicy side and portions are generous.
User review by sisler. terrible bad service food was terrible. Will never go back!
Another Lobster restuarant with a color. Made reservation with a surrey man. Arrived and was given a pager,waited 30 minutes.Waiter was good. Terribly overpriced for value. Sorry not romantic. So noisy we had headaches. Seated next to party of 15; 7 were under 4 and all crying because they were tired. It was after 9 pm. Thought our food would never arrive. It didn't. It was dropped on the floor 10 feet from our table. I expressed my disapprovement to the manager (surrey man I made reservation with) he became very defensive and could only say we are doing the best we can. Each person's meal then came at a different time. One was cold; the tasted burnt. The second manager took the cost of the main entrees off the bill. We gave the waiter a tip to cover the entire bill and left our worst dining experience in a long time behind.
New Place-Good; bit expensive though. So we checked out the new place on High House; it was good food; a bit on the expensive side. I recommend but they need to increase the portion size just a bit for the money. Overall; good place-in particular for a business meeting if need be.
I LOVE CARRABBA'S. Carrabba's is one of the best restaurants Raleigh has to offer.... I LOVE THEIR FOOD... and have never ever been disappointed at their food, service or atmosphere! :) Definitely worth the money!!!
Worth the Wait. The food here is the best around. Also the wait people make sure that your drinks are refilled. I have eaten in this ane and one in Wilmington and both give the same great food and service.
Great food and large portions!. You can't go wrong here -- everything is delicious! The fried calamari appetizer is the best I've ever had. The only problem is that the entrees are so large, I can't finish them. (Oh well, Carrabba's for lunch tomorrow!)
The best in Raleighwood. sit in front od the wood fired grille prep area for all of the action you could want! The nice bar with locally fresh CBC Pale Ale on tap -- always a ++.
If it was not great, why is there always such a crowd watiting to get in?
Stimulates the senses. This place stimulates the senses in the smells of grill, ambience of people enjoying the food and sounds of the grill sizzling. When I was there, twice during the week dinner time, there wasn't a long wait, about 15-30 min. It has curb size carryout. The surf/turf, soups, pasta, and pizza were all perfection both time.
