Mother's Day DinnerWe will absolutely visit Casbah again - the food was amazing and the selection very interesting. The sword fish was perfect. I would have given our "overall experience" 5 stars except for one thing. We had early reservations and the dining area was nearly empty yet my husband and I were seated right next to a table with 3 small children. While the kids were fairly well behaved, occasional loud shrieks and screams were common. I know this is not the restaurant's fault, but the hostess/host should be more aware of the seating arrangement. There were many empty tables for 2 away from the noisy family. No, we did not ask to be reseated, so we are partly to blame as well. EVERYTHING else about the dining experience was excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayMy wife & I went there for Mothers Day, seated quickly, attentive waitress, excellent menu and food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat M-Days brunchFood and service were excellent. Couldn't ask more for e Mother's Day brunch5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCasbah was wonderful!For an appetizer my partner and I shared the Crispy Calamari, very tasty with a delicious sauce. The crusty bread was served with a garlic butter spread or a Greek yogurtt based spread that was very good. I ordered the Grilled Swordfish and it was very good but not outstanding. 4 stars for the swordfish. My partner ordered the Long Island Duck, based on the recommendation of our waitress. My partner loved it. She insisted I try a bit and I had to agree. 5 stars for the duck.
A very, very good meal that was accompanied by truly outstanding service. Our waitress was truly a gem. She seemed to take great pride in the fare at Casbah. Very helpful and pleasant but not intrusive. We will definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Casbah a handfulI've been to Casbah a handful of times and every time it is consistantly good. It has a very comfortable yet intimate atmosphere and more importantly the food hasn't fallen over the years from its high standard that it had since it first opened. Derrick, our server did everything perfectly. very helpful and attentive. i do think of casbah as somewhere i go on a special occasion, though and not so much for its bar scene or a random choice for a night out to dinner. thank you so much for the pleasant experience and outstanding food. Casbah is definitely on my list of places to return and recommend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFive starsCasbah always meets my expectations in food and service.
It's a pleasure to dine for brunch, lunch, dinner iota just drinks.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a success!As per usual it was a great evening. The food was phenominal and the staff was first class!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was exceptionallyThe food was exceptionally delicious. Sometimes we have had to wait rather long for our food because there were too many large groups; that was not the case last week. Casbah has consistently interesting offerings.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at casbahMy experience at casbah was great. The hostess was very friendly and the server was great. My friends and I enjoyed the appetizers and our dinner. We will absolutely be back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food but...It was a busy night but the waiter was a little inattentive.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice patio diningThe duck was fantastic. The waiter reccomended a nice wine. I'm not sure about dining inside because we were seated on the enclosed patio, which was quite pleasant and had a nice noise level. Attentive service. A bonus is the valet parking next door.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely eveningEven though we ate inside, the doors were open and I felt as if I were on vacation in the actually casbah (yes, I've been there!).5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a review but a commentNot a review but a comment for OPEN TABLE. I wasn't able to travel for a while and when I rechecked my account recently I discovered that my 3100 points had simply been erased WITH NO NOTICE - this is a really bad policy and doesn't make me particularly want to use your site as I had frequently when I could. Can anything be done about this?5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways one of my favoriteAlways one of my favorite Pittsburgh restaurants. Menu is always changing and I have never had a bad meal or bad service4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphereThe atmosphere is what makes this place. I had the beet salad to start, licked the plate clean basically. My boyfriend and I shared the sea scallop appetizer since it was the first time trying scallops for the both of us, they were pretty tasty, although the dish only consisted of two scallops for $7 a piece. We both tried the pork chop and it was good I just wished there were a little more of the sauce on it, also the risotto it was paired with was fantastic. We tried two desserts, the dark choc raspberry bread pudding which was fresh out of the oven and big enough to share between the two of us--but I wasn't a fan. The chocolate cheesecake, on the other hand, was only large enough of one of us and I polished off most of it, delish!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!Excellent Service from Brenna who made spot-on recommendations for us. Salmon was beautifully prepared, cocktail was great. Enjoyed dining on the patio. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We were there for lunch - I'd definitely go back for dinner.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you for a great BirthdayThank you for a great Birthday experience.

Thank you for a great night!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience all around.Excellent experience all around. Entrees are a little pricey as many have mentioned, but you can have lower cost pasta dishes. We both had fish, which was excellent. But the price reflects market price in the grocery stores for sea bass etc. Great for a special occasion.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly downside is that I thinkOnly downside is that I think that it is a little over priced.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very pleased withWe were very pleased with the food - we see Bill Fuller on TV each week with a demo on some of the food.
