Food is amazing. I want to do everything important in my life there.

The short version of the review is that if all you want is fairly good food, then this is a good place. Each of the dishes that we tried were amazing. But if you are looking for something other than food for your experience visiting this restaurant, you are out of luck. I am a bit hesitant to give a passing grade on Decor. If you are only looking for how the place look, it does look nice when you enter, before they sit you down. But from there everything went downhill. The waiting staff is obviously extremely undertrained. They take a long time taking your order, the waiter messed up the order twice. One person in our party needed the gluten free menu, and the waiter didn't even know what sides could accompany the dishes there. And although I would not describe the service as plain rude, I have to say that I have had much better service at a truck stop. Then, as the place was somewhat pack, instead of telling people that there would be a waiting period, they continued packing more and more tables in the little space there were. Twice we were moved, to make space for more tables, and this was around 7PM on a Sunday, not a time when they are barely opening. Also, the place is not well distributed. I have been to restaurant of similar size where you can have a pleasant conversation with the person across the table, even with the place full. Here, I had problems listening to the person next to me. And of course, as everybody has the same problem, I had a better chance to listen to the conversations in some of the tables near by, as they were almost yelling to each other. To make matter worse, although the food was delicious, it took them for ever to bring it. Let's say that we sat down at around 7 sharp, and we left at around 9PM, no coffee, no desert, nothing. My praises to the kitchen staff, that seem to have been the only really competent employees on shift. The rest of the staff was at best incompetent. The person who recommended the chain to me says that he had never visited this one in particular, and that it seems to be the exception, but if you are in Kirby, skip Carrabba's and go somewhere else. I swear, I'll never go back there!

The food is amazing, service could be better. However, it seems they are constantly very busy. Personally, I feel the tables are too close together and as a result the ambient noise is louder than it should be for a restaurant in this price range. All this seems to strain service into being much slower than it could otherwise be. However, the food makes up for it. The portion sizes are good and the quality is great!

When looking for good Italian this place should be at the top of your list. The service it's a good normal speed. The staff wear ties and i always end up thinking man where did he get that great tie. I can't say enough about the food quality. Also the Carrabas on kirby is a step above all the other Carrabas in Houston. its something about thier pasta that is just to die for. Please take a chance and try this Carrabas, if you can stand a small wait time during busy hours i highly doubt you will walk away unsatisfied.

If I am not mistaken I think this is the original Carrabba's. The menu is different and a little more pricey than other Carrabba's, but that is not a bad thing. All of the food is good that we have had. I'm sure my wife and I will go again, but there are a couple other places we like a little better that we will probably go to first.
