We enjoyed our Easter Brunch
We enjoyed our Easter Brunch here. The food was very good, despite the long line. The staff did a great job of refreshing the food, so it was hot and fresh. The omelets were great, but the best were the breads.

We enjoyed Easter Brunch at Cassis. The food was well prepared and the choices were very appealing. We did not dine during regular hours or order from regular menus, so I can't comment on those. The brunch was very reasonably priced.

Expectation Exceeded Our Experience
Arrived for Easter brunch to find they'd set our table for 8 outside directly in the sun. Two members of our party can't be in the sun, so we had to change. It took the hostess nearly an hour to find us an inside table (they were wicked busy) and she kept forgetting the name on our reservation ("What's your name again? How many people?"). She must have asked this four times. $29.99 buffet was priced right and all was fresh and good, but nothing really special...typical brunch fare. Complimentary valet parking was well done...and highly necessary. Drinks were generous pours and very well crafted. Overall, it's a nice place, but our expectations exceeded our experience.

We usually sit outside where HHFA entertainment is people watching. But a cool nite sent us indoors and we loved the ambience The good is wonderful and they have a great selection for all types of appetites

Food was fantastic! When busy, there should be more waiters, as service was slow, but not our waiter's fault.

A great place for Sunday brunch and for delicious dinners too.

Another great dinner
Had another great meal with friends and family. Our server did an exceptional job of describing the menu option to some of our first time guest. We took our time with drink and then the main course. After dinner we took a short walk around the waterfront and then returned to their bakery for dessert and coffee. Great night... thanks.

Better the 2nd time around
Our first visit had mixed results. However, this visit was exceptional. Very good food and excellent service.

great place for two
Have always enjoyed great service at Cassis, especially when we've gone for dinner. Sat outside for one of the few remaining evenings available before the mega heat hits, and this location is one of the great people watching spots. Never had a bad meal here, and the highlights are not just the entrees but the side dishes and desserts as well. Try the home made chips with the hot sauce, outstanding sangria (red is my favorite) and for dessert, blood orange sorbet is out of this world. Not sickeningly sweet, just right. My wife's blood orange cosmo was pretty impressive too.
I had the ribeye and my wife chose the grouper tacos as an entrée, just downright delicious. An early Friday evening delight!

Easy atmosphere, simple food, delightful experience. Very friendly.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service, really good food
We had the escargot appetizer, which was very, very good. The salads were better than most places. I had the bouillabaisse, which was excellent, perhaps the best I ever had. It included 1/2 lobster tail, one large scallop, a few shrimp, a nice piece of salmon, and of course baby clams and mussels, all in a very nicely seasoned (fresh herbs) red sauce.

Visited on Beach Party Weekend
This was my second visit to Cassis. My youngest daughter and I went for brunch on Father's Day. The food was delicious. The beach sand and decorations were amazing. The service was a little slow, maybe due to our waitress being spread a bit thin, even though the restaurant wasn't totally packed. When I asked a busboy (?) for more coffee, it was poured only about 2/3s into my coffee cup, and it was luke warm, if even that.

Good Birthday Celebration
Overall this was an excellent dining experience, albeit with a few missteps. To the restaurant's credit, we did decide to dine during their annual beach party, which I'm sure throws a bit of a hitch in typical service. The most important part is that all of our food was outstanding. We had several appetizers, including the oysters which had a lovely mignonette, ahi tuna ceviche which was deliciously fresh, and the crab salad, which was dressed appropriately. Everyone enjoyed their entrees also. I personally had the triggerfish, which was cooked properly and had a nice crust on it with just the right amount of acid to keep it clean. The wine menu was priced well and had enough selections to keep it interesting.

Gem in the city
Great location downtown - parking is great with valet service.
Clean and bright interior with flair.
Bar was hopping but did not dominate the entire area - dining was pleasant and cozy.
Varied menu to please all ages and tastes.
Excellent and attentive service.

Was looking for a place to take my wife out on our date night. We had a great time. Food was great. My wife had the curried lentils a he is a vegetarian. I had the bouillabaisse. Both were light and did not fill you up. For appetizers I had the tomato and mozzarella salad. Great flavor. For dessert we had creme brûlée. Not too sweet but excellent. We got some To go items from the bakery. The ambiance was nice. Music was in background but you could talk. Service was excellent. Overall a great night out. It was raining and the complimentary valet was great. Will be back again. It is pet friendly if you sit outside.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The baked brie was delicious, the spinach salad was wonderful. My wife hates onions so was a little disappointed when the salad came out with onions. [She didn't tell Chad to 86 the onions.] She actually went ahead and ate the salad, carefully setting the onions aside, and enjoyed it. You are to be complemented! She never does that!! Chad was our server and he was attentive, informative, and helpful. I would ask for him again the next time we come in. It was also a delight to talk with the general manager about the history of the restaurant. the food, service etc. We will be back.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always go to Cassis when we are in town. The food is reliably good, location perfect, seating good inside and out. the wine list is ok, but cocktails are excellent. The steak frites is great, as are burgers and croque monsieur, but the entrees are usually very good as well.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite restaurant
The food here is awesome; taste great and nicely presented. I had the puttanesca soup and the white fish for dinner. My wife had the scallops, which she thought were the best she ever had. On a previous visit I had the escargot, which was excellent, and the bouillabaisse for dinner (the best I ever had). We'll definitely be back soon!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than other reviews I've read
I'm glad we gave Cassis a chance. Based on previous reviews I was nervous about the service. We were all very surprised and real happy with the server, whose name was "EZ". He was funny and made good recommendations for us. I had the fish and chips which was cooked perfectly. Just wish we saved room for dessert. Check out the bakery next door.

Our Saturday night date
My husband and I went after a movie. When we got there around 7:30 the restaurant was not full, but a lot of the outdoor seating was taken. Because of smoking outside, we decided to eat inside. The food was very good and served timely. Our waitress had a lot of energy and was friendly. However, I don't appreciate children out on a Saturday night. It's not the restaurant's fault, it's just a friendly place. I think I preferred having lunch there
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous working lunch
This was a choice place for a working lunch where a colleague and I could get delicious food and get work done. It was a quiet place yet great ambiance and professional service. Would definitely go back again.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our best visit
We have dined several times at Cassis, however this last visit provided our best experience. The food was spot on and the service was exceptional. We will return.

Hail to the chef!!!!
This is the third time we've had the pleasure of dining at Cassis in downtown St. Pete, and will certainly not be our last. Each time the food could only be described as the best we've ever had. Cassis has replaced (won't name the other place) as our favorate in Pinnelles County.

Great Food in St. Pete
My husband and I went to Cassis for an early dinner, prior to going to a Rays game. The menu is not huge, but we had a hard time choosing what we wanted because everything we read was intriguing. I had a mixed greens salad and it was really good - very light and fresh. My husband said that the french onion soup was one of the best he's ever tasted. For the entree, we both had the bar steak frites and fries and they were delicious! Overall, a great place to eat in St. Pete.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite St. Pete restaurant
I not only have never had a bad meal here, it's almost always the best I've ever had! I had the salmon this time and my wife had the pork chops. The spicy baked apples (or maybe sweet potatoes?) was very original and delcious!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food & service, tres good
A group of us had dinner at Cassis and it was terrific. The service and food were just great. We had a variety of apps including the escargot (yummy), fresh oysters (tres yummy) and the brie, all perfectly done. I had the mixed grill for my entree and it was spectacular..... not so sure I needed the chicken that was included but it was very good. The Salmon and Trigger got great reviews and then we finished with some desserts incllluding apple pie a la mode. Our server was great, we highly recommend Cassis for a great dinner!!!!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Why order the same thing every time you come to a restaurant? Because it's always top notch. My husband always gets the steak frites and onion soup and I always order their cucumber mint gazpacho with crab salad garnish. We've never been disappointed. And our choice of a Haut Nuit Saint Georges was a felicitous surprise.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere, food and service was wonderful. Small glitch with dinner but our server was right on top of the situation and my dinner was amazing. Server was very apologetic and immediately offered a complimentary drink or dessert to go with the meal. No doubts, we will be going back to this restaurant.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
All Aorund Great Menu
We had a burger lover, salad lover and a vegan together and we all had a great meal with dessert.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
This place is one of the few left serving a very good beef tartare, made as they do in Paris. Coupled with a fine dozen freshest oysters, we had the perfect "surf and turf" lunch.

Pre-Diana Ross dinner
Had a very well served tortellini pasta,with a nice sangria. Positioned on front corner booth to be able to catch up on conversation with a friend yet see happenings throughout restaurant.

Dinner with friends prior to a Rays baseball game. Food great. Waiter pretentious and over familiar but knowledgable of
the menu. One of several good restaurants on Beach Drive in St Pete.

Cassis is a gem!
Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Cassis. The food was really good and our friendly waiter took care of us well. We will definitely go back and part of our motivation is getting Open Table points.

Great Dinner great night
First time to Cassis and I was very impressed. Food was prepared properly, good wine list, and the wait staff was on their game. The ambiance is right on for a Paris style brasserie. I have and will recommend this place to others.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My kids, their infant and I were there for brunch. The service was warm but professional. The lattes were great, the menu varied enough for everyone but not so large as to be confusing. My omelette was delicious, though not as hot as I'd have liked, and the bacon was tasty, yet I'd have thought a higher end restaurant would offer a thicker cut rather than regular every day thin bacon. The fruit, yogurt and granola was fantastic.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Left for cocktails elsewhere
Only drawback was arriving at 10 for brunch, only to discover no cocktails until 11. Not Cassis' fault, but since we talked about this with the waiter, we would have expected him to com bouncing up about 2 minutes before 11 to suggest cocktails. In stead he sjut showed u[ at 11:10 and said: "Check?" Went up the street to Birch and Vine for cocktails, instead.

A trip to Paris!
Popped in for brunch and so glad we did! The ambiance has a fun French flavor. Food was delicious!

St. Pete's Premier spot
I pass this place many times as I frequented the St. Pete Beach Drive area, but never tried it. Noticing how its always full and seem to be the center of most of the action, I decided to give it a try. I felt that the reservation application on the site was very user friendly and I was glad that on my first visit I was able to secure a spot right away. The wait staff and hostess were all very friendly and knowledgeable about their products. I ordered the Porcini Pasta because I often favor vegetarian foods. This dish was delicious: rich, but not overly filling. Also flavorful, with none of the ingredients overpowering the other. I felt that the food was overly priced though, but I already knew this. Would return here again.

One of our favorites!
Cassis American Brasserie never disappoints. The chef is a genius! Each time we visit, it is difficult for me to chose just one dish. Normally, we split several items in order to try different things. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. I recommend this restaurant anytime you are visiting downtown St. Pete!
