For a night out with friends, we went to dinner at Carrabba's on a Saturday night. Very crowded with large parties but were seated in about 40 min. Out waitress did not come over for probably 10-15 minutes but she took our order. Came back with our drinks and then we did not see her again for 25 minutes, our... More

No lunch menu on weekends anymore,even though the banners out front say "daily lunch". Please update trip advisor. We were not about to drop over a hundred dollars for lunch for our party of five. Got up and left and went to the purple onion across the street.

We had an excellent dinner of wood grilled chicken and salad, along with a cup of soup! The food was delicious with excellent service. Will be going back again soon! Highly recommend Carrabba's Italian Grill on 280 in Birmingham.

The worst restaurant I've been lately. I'm giving 2 starts because the waitress was nice and the place looks cool. About the food, really, the only thing that was good was the minestrone soup and the Cesar salad. The food is very expensive for the amount and quality . I had the salmon with mashed potato, and I couldn't finish... More

I've eaten at this location several times. On this occasion, I was pleased to see the new menu and interior improvements. My party was seated immediately and out server Sophia was excellent. She was professional and kept us abreast of order status. In fact, all personnel were exceptional. The food choices were changed recently; therefore, it took a moment to... More

Love the Pasta Weezie at Carrabba's! Good salads and bread, prefer my olive oil with italian seasonings with balsalmic vinegar (which they brought out). Had a large group, made reservations, received excellent service, timely entre presentation and had a great visit with friends.

My wife and I had dinner here and was really surprised to see how good the service and attention was from our waiter Jake and Manager Kim Davis. Food was good too and we got a great tip from Jake for a microbrewery to visit the next day. Two thumbs up for the meal and service. Lastly, how can you... More

Overall we had a great experience. The waiter was awesome. He was very attentive and friendly. The food was fresh and served very quickly. The ambiance is what one would expect for a nice Italian restaurant. The only thing that kept this restaurant from earning 5 stars from me is the roving employee that solicits customers to join some sort... More

We entered the restaurant and asked for seats at the kitchen counter. The cook behind the line was very friendly and greeted us immediately after we sat with a welcoming smile. We were brought water and told our server would be right with us. Our server came over to take our order. He was friendly but could have done more... More
