Visited this restaurant with family. I was assured by family members that I would have safe options. I ordered salmon and veggies, which I was assured were gluten free. My food was brought out next to family members pasta’s and breads. I didn’t think much of it at the time. My waitress, during dinner rush, brought our our food, left it in the middle of the aisle, out in the open as people walked by, and left it there for 10 minutes while she retrieved the rest of the orders. I begrudgingly ate it, knowing I would later regret it.

I had the worst stomach pain of my life within hours. I was cramping, nauseous, you name it for days afterward. I broke out in full body hives for a week afterward. To this day, I’m not sure how exactly I was glutened, or if I also had some slight food poisoning, but I will never be returning and I highly, highly suggest if you are gluten free/have a gluten allergy, or are celiac that you AVOID THIS CARRABBA’S LIKE THE PLAGUE.

Not only did I become ill, the food was downright horrible. I could’ve went to the store and bought a frozen gluten free TV dinner that would’ve tasted better than the $25 salmon that made me hate my life.

We went to lunch today after I checked the menu on their website and it looked very gluten free with lots of options. It looked online that there was a separate menu with gluten free options. As soon as the waitress came over I knew I was in trouble. The pasta section of the menu was very confusing and made it appear that any of the items were available with gluten free pasta. The waitress had no clue and when I started to ask questions things got very uncomfortable. I thought she would go to the kitchen to ask about the questions I had but just guessed and when I told her I could get very sick if I got something with gluten in it, I just got a blank stare. One of the items she suggested to me was pasta with meatballs and when I was concerned that they had breadcrumbs in them she acknowledged that they probably did. Again, no offer to double check. We should have gotten up and left at that point. I ended up getting the Pasta Bolognese. My biggest concern was my salad dressing. At that point I was so frustrated with her that I didn't think to ask and I ate it anyway. Here's to hoping it was gluten free. I guess my biggest problem is that if you promote gluten free meals, educate your staff so they know what they're talking about. We'll never go back.

This restaurant was amazing years ago. Definitely has gone way down hill. The gluten free pasta is awful. They do have some good gluten free options. Too bad this location isn’t very good anymore.

Surprisingly enough they have a large selection of GF items. They are all marked on their menu so there's no need to ask for a separate/special menu.

Ordered the Chicken Bryan, very clearly explaining my needs to the waitress and item was marked GF on the menu. Took one bite and realized there was a rogue mushroom with sauce (maybe Marsala?) in the middle of the plate. Informed the waitress. She said it probably fell off another plate and they could remake it. Made me ask for a manager, because there is no way they took any precautions with my plate the first time and I had questions about their kitchen processes. Manager said all sauces are gluten free and all right next to each other in the kitchen, so it happens! Confidence in safely eating now down to a zero. Boxed it up and my husband will eat it tomorrow.

Third time eating here in 8 months. Every time I make it VERY CLEAR that I am allergic to dairy and gluten (yes I know the correct word is gluten “intolerant”). Today I was told all the meat sauces have gluten in the form of bread crumbs. Makes zero sense. Why have gluten free pasta if all I can have is plain tomato sauce? And it explains why I had a reaction the last two times I ate there, which I chalked up to something else. I am done with Carabbas since they obviously don’t take allergies as seriously as they say.
