    It is in a strip mall... once you get over that, it is worth it!! The mussels were amazing...with chorizo, not too spicy, just enough added umph. My husband had the steak and forced himself to save some for "lunch tomorrow"- our waiter recommended how to prepare it Au jus...my daughter ate it and wants us to go back again so she can have the leftovers!

    We always have the standards when we go to a Cassis restaurant. They have the best onion soup and mussels. We added fries this time which were outstanding . I had a fish special which was great. My only disappoint was a tasteless salad.

    Arrived @ 4:35 Sat. thinking we could enjoy glass of wine @ bar & then have early dinner. Hostess had just turned 2 customers away b4 us & told us we needed 2 come back in 15 mins! Noticed a man was drinking beer @ bar & asked can't we have a glass of wine @ bar or @ outside table? "No"! We came back, were seated outside & barely saw our rude waiter. Busboy was more attentive than waiter & he wasn't present too often either! Asked for ck & told hostess how bad svc was. Mgr was standing nearby, must have overheard the comment but didn't spk 2 us in this empty restaurant! While 2 glasses of wine weren't chrg'd, we're not certain if it was an oversight or an accommodation for lousy svc starting w/hostess. No sense of urgency to 2 serve :-(

    The food was very good. We had a variety of meals. The mussels were delicious, the sea bass was excellent and the duck was perfect. The salad cassis was a bit sour and the cheese was in big lumps. The service was very disappointing. The busboys kept crossing in front of me when they were placing items to one of our dining companions who was seated to my left. I told the waitress about it, and she said she would talk to the busboy, but then a different busboy came and did the same thing! My husband and I both asked him not to cross in front of me. It was disconcerting and rude. I've have been at this restaurant several times, and this is the first time this happened, but I was embarrassed in front of my guests.

    I was blown away with this restaurant. The noise level is high & the ambience is very energetic. The service was great; the waiter was there when we needed him, but left us alone otherwise. He was also very friendly & helpful with suggestions. They serve the bread with this delicious pate. I ordered a French Martini to start, which was made perfectly, along with the Escargots (piping hot, but delicious!). For a main I had the Moules Saffran, which were fresh and delectable, along with a side of the best French fries I have ever had, and a Kronenbourg (on tap!) to wash it all down. For dessert we shared the crème brulee which was so amazing we all wanted to marry it. They also have a guitarist on Thursday nights that is outstanding.

    Casis provides a great atmosphere with good food. At times, the service can be sketchy. A friendlier attitude can help, depending on who your server is. The salads, mussels and main courses are very tasty and reliable. The added entertainment is a bonus, too. Overall, a great neighborhood place to enjoy.

    Everyone in our party agreed that the food was excellent. I had the steak au poivre with pomme frites. It was delicious. However, the noise levels in this space are off the scale during the dinner hour. We really couldn't make conversation. Nothing in the dining area exists to absorb sound. You are better off dining here for lunch when it is less crowded. Service was not bad, but not overly friendly or attentive. At one point, our waiter noticed we had run out of butter and placed it on the table so rapidly that I did not have time to catch his eye to ask for some aioli. The aioli, when it arrived, was uncharacteristically watery. I will definitely return, but not on a Friday night.

    We came here for the first time for mother's day brunch. The food was delicious and the service was good as well, but the noise level was high in the inside rooms and it was a bit difficult to converse with one another. The outside tables looked like a much better location. One thing that could have been better was the selection for the brunch menu. We are familiar with Cassis in Huntington and their brunch menu is more extensive so we were a bit disappointed when items we were looking for were missing. That being said, however, the food was excellent.

    I was pretty disappointed all in all in this restaurant. I have been trying to open up my mind to restaurants in Long Island - but for me, I just can't find that "divine" one. The service and server were great, but the food was mediocre. The dinner that my husband had was not at all that appetizing at all. And the desert was appalling. However, the salad that I ordered was fantastic for an appetizer - very fresh. I won't go back here again. It looked like those around us were having a good time and the wine was good. But all in all, giving the restaurant three stars is a gift.

    Less than a 10 minute drive from the Hicksville multiplex, what a wonderful find. Didn't know about the place until it came up on opentable for restaurant week. It is in odd location, but once you step inside, very romantic. We went at an off time, 6:30 on Tuesday so the place was not crowded. The waitstaff very nice and attentive. The food was wonderful. I had the garlic eggplant soup and the best porkchop. My husband enjoyed a salad and salmon dish. Will be returning again for another date night.
