Carrabba's Italian Grill - Reston
- Ordered two Peroni beers, but only received one, as the keg apparently ran out (and there was no more?); So had to get an alternative.
- Ordered two scampi damian dishes, and both had a lot of pepper/spices in them... Way too much, which made it a bit overwhelming and hot. I'll still eat the leftovers, but strongly recommend the cook(s) cut back on the amount of pepper/spices used, if possible.
- All other food items were delicious!
- Food was served hot and fresh!
- Waiter was quick and friendly (though he seemed a bit new).
This was my second time at this location. While we had a couple issues with the scampi damian dishes (which we did not voice to our waiter), I will still go back.
Don't make a reservation here, it only ends up putting you on a waiting list. The hostess knew nothing about this only commented "we don't take reservations". You do get notified in the fine print in the confirmation email. But seriously, select a reservation time only to get put on a list? Much better local Italian food in the area, this chain is off my list for good!
We were disappointed on our last visit. Pasta was overdone; not al dente. We informed waitress. No feedback from kitchen. Service was slower than normal. We may return.
I would give them a second chance as it has always been my favorite restaurant when I lived in Florida. Food was not as good as I am used to. Waiter did not bring requested items to our table until asked twice.
Food was good and relatively quick but service was very slow.
This is a nice place to eat. The zucchini fries had too much oil. The service allowed us to change for soup.
Always a solid meal and efficient service
The food was delicious as I had the spaghetti and meatballs in a meat sauce. I paired it with an Italian salad and Pierre sparkling water. My wife had a dark Italian wine and ravioli. She also had the chicken soup. We enjoyed the ambiance and service. Our waitress was quite good and ensured we wanted or needed nothing, we will return to this we’ll run restaurant again.
Soup was passable: not many veggies in it and they were overcooked rather than fresh. Main courses were okay but couldn't pass for fresh and authentic Italian food. Service was fine. Overall, dinner was okay but disappointing as I remember Carrabba's food tasting much better in the past.
Thanks for handling our large group. Waiter was very efficient.
Food came way too quick, had the appetizer, salad and entree all at the same time. Food was OK but things like the broccoli was mush and the mash potatoes had way too much garlic. Prices were not too bad but not worth the poor food.
Reunion !! Great food... great service... for sure a 10+
Always reliable service and excellent food
Music too loud. Can't hear my conversation. Thank you.
