    You would expect delicious mussels at a place with this name-- and they do not disappoint!! I would love to try some of the other varieties- but I always get the one with chorizo....it is sooo good I have yet to take the chance on something else!

    Usually love this restaurant, but we must have hit an "off night." The hostess was perfunctory, as was our server. The food was not up to its usual standards. We were disappointed but will certainly give it another try.

    We went there to celebrate a major birthday expecting great food based on the reviews in this site but found just OK food and noise level on a saturday night that was unberarable More specific, escargots were tasty, frog legs were below average and they were tasteless and swimming in oil. Filet Mignon and Seabass were good. Service was slow or at least our waitress was.

    We've been coming here for years - sadly, service has been declining especially as concerns the busboy (@ least the 1 @ our table). He made it clear he resented having to fill water glasses frequently & when 3 of us took food home, he combined 2 different people's meals & told us to separate it ourselves! Really?! Some serious training needs to happen, IMHO.

    Had the lamb chops, which were excellent, with the exception of one that was rather tough. My wife had the sole, which I tried and was delicious. Both were good sized portions. Service was excellent. Would like to see a more extensive wine list, but that being said, the glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah/Grenace I had were more than acceptable. Picky about my food, and my wine, I will return here.

    We were 2 couples on a Saturday evening. We've all been here before & once again enjoyed our meals. We had the French onion soup, escargot & crab & endive salad as appetizers. The entrees consisted of trout, short rib dinner, butterflied, breaded & pan fried pork chop & a seared salmon. Dessert was ½ good - the cobbler was delicious but the lemon tart was weak. We are not a table of big drinkers & only 1 of us had a Martini. We all had wine but some like red wine while others white so we opted for by the glass. They have a decent selection & each choice was good. Still a place we are comfortable recommending…enjoy!

    Been visiting this place for a few years but for special occasions as it is far from were we live. The food and service is always on point. The hanger steak was juicy and tender, mussels in Pernod sauce was yummy, the salmon and sea bass dishes flavorful. If you are not afraid to eat raw meat..try the steak tartar with the wonderful crusty bread the give you

    Went to dinner early so the restaurant was quiet - saw other diners with children and the restaurant could accommodate their needs. The bread, pate and the main courses were delicious - the chef could give a little more potatoes and vegetable - not an expensive item to be more generous with. The décor was very "French" but not overdone. Would definitely recommend and go back again for a special occasion.

    As a wedding and event photographer I photographed a party for a client at Cassis in Plainview. I was immediately struck by the great 'bistro' decor and warm and friendly 'feel' the restaurant had. I returned with my wife on our wedding anniversary and we had the tastiest paella that we've eaten in years, which is the daily special on Sundays. We plan or returning on a Monday night for their special menu featuring several mussel selections. A great dining experience, and I highly recommend this restaurant.

    We were visiting from Australia and in Farmingdale for two weeks. It was my birthday and I dispaired of finding somewhere nice to eat. Hen we found Brasserie Cassis. The food was outstanding. So good we offered to kiss the (clearly classically trained) chef. I highly recommend your establishment to any lover of fine French cuisine. Tre bien!

    Cassis is one of our favorites. My husband and I go often and my married kids go too!! We all had fish as our entrée, except my twin grandsons who are eight and had the delicious burger. Everyone raved about their meal. We had the mussels as an appetizer and are always tender and well seasoned. We be there again this Friday evening.

    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.
