Casa La Femme's menu highlights authentic Egyptian food, including traditional dishes and irresistible new tastes.

We offer guests an unforgettable experience that goes well beyond our delectable cuisine and inspired cocktails. For a truly special evening, be it drinks with friends, a dinner date, or a group celebration, Casa La Femme is the most tantalizing choice you can make.

Unlike most NYC venues, this upscale Egyptian restaurant doesn't cut corners on interior design or the kitchen. Two spacey rooms with authentic decorations and large tables makes one feel no longer in New York City. The food is nothing to scoff at, either. I find myself mixing a variety of dips and appetizers with the impressive bar cocktails and surprisingly decent tabletop hookah.

It could have been better. Belly dancers were unable to dance due to lack of space.

The waitstaff was rude and slow. Dinner took over 2 and a half hours and that had nothing to do with us. We waited for everything. When we asked for things, we were told things would take long because they were busy. They told us to order wine not cocktails because cocktails would take too long. They didn’t refill water glasses. They didn’t clear dirty plates. We had to flag down people to get the check and pay it. They added cocktails to our bill (which we didn’t order because we were told to order wine). It was a ridiculous experience. Had we not been there with our parents, I would have walked out after the first course.

Had a great dining experience with a big group. The staff is great and the belly dancers are on point!

The bread is fresh and the hummus is fantastic. The grilled octopus is a delicious add on and you can’t go wrong with the lamb chops as your main dish!

Dining at the Casa Le femme was a unique experience..when we walked in we were lost because there was no host to take our reservation,however after asking around we were attended to by a very nice gentlemen,My husband and I were not familiar with the food, so we chose the Grilled Salmon and Couscous which was not over seasoned and very light on the palette the the pita with the three choices of dips was very delicious overall the ambiance and setting was very romantic however I would have enjoyed the seating area with the tent more if the curtains could have come down I wanted to be more secluded,If I could suggest something I would say the music should have more variety as the dj played indian music all night,and maybe the menu or waitress should suggest signature dishes or dishes that are very popular,I don't eat meat so I appreciated the variety of foods for vegans ...the belly dancer was also amazing ...I was celebrating my birthday and I left with a great feeling ....if the Casa le femme is open to more suggestions this place could get five stars without a question!!!!

I was here for a birthday party I specifically asked for the desert cake to come out with the belly dancer, the Manager and I discussed this in detail and he yes me for confirmation. Well, that never happened. For dinner at a prefixed menu, they only brought out two servings of hummus and babaganoush with pita. There were 7 people. I have the pictures of proof. Also my fish was to be deboned and filleted and there were so many bones in my fish I could have choked. I am so disappointed in the service. Our bill was over $700. I was furious. Management did not handle this well at all.

food was great, the ambiance gets very LOUD when the live dancing show starts. HIGHLY recommend ordering food at least 30 minutes prior to show time. Service was OK. took long to get our table even though we had a reservation, drinks took a long time to come out. But food was very tasty. and decorations are nice.

With a large party of 12 I had planned on ordering a bunch of Meza’s and apps for the table... even prepared with a printed spreadsheet. The waitress was not having it. She aggressively proceeded to argue with me in front of my party attempting to tell us that we all needed to do the prefixe menu option. This went on for about a half hour while she went back and fourth from the table taking her sweet time to deliver drinks and even water. Flash forward through a perfectly proportioned array of small plates dinner (*spreadsheet)... the belly dancers were a nice touch. But when the bill came - I gave my card and signed. She came back to collect the receipt while we were all still present (major pet peeve of mine; it’s tacky) and asked if “this was the correct amount” because she wasn’t pleased with the tip I had left on top of the added gratuity. The restaurant was half empty on a Friday night and being the largest table I would have appreciated a little more respect and appreciation for our business.

Cute atmosphere - horrible customer service - decent food - obnoxiously over priced... save yourself the hassle and don’t waste your time at this establishment. Especially if you plan on having a group dinner.

This restaurant was an exceptional cuisine experience. The ambiance is exhilarating with live entertainment to top it off. The tent seating truly made me feel like a princess on my birthday. My husband and I had never eaten Mediterranean cuisine prior to that day and we were pleased with the food. The salmon with couscous was well seasoned and was very tasty. Additionally, the lamb chops with their specialty Jasmine rice that incorporated bits of pita chunks was also very delicious and well seasoned. The staff was very friendly and social also very accommodating and catered to your needs. I loved the restaurant and would definitely recommend to friends and family especially for a special occasion.

I have been coming to Casa Le Femme for many years. The food is AMAZING and very authentic. The owner is a first class gentleman and went the extra mile to take care of our group of 8.
The place is a lot of fun for groups or a special date. I took my wife there before we were married and she loved it. We have been regulars ever since. I highly recommend it.

Waitress was annoying and kept trying to make us buy and order more....and then we saw them charge another table for extra items that were actually supposed to be on our bill, and the other table didn’t notice....but we ended up having to pay for our items anyway so the restaurant made double. VERY sketchy, and even as we were getting up another waitress tried to make us stay and order dessert and after we said no we saw her leave and whisper something to the manager. I just got a weird vibe after leaving there and I don’t think I’ll go back again, which is a shame because the food was decent. I didn’t want to believe other reviews that mentioned the double charge stories but it’s true!

The food was good and ambiance was very cozy. However, based on other reviews in Open Table, I called ahead before making reservations to ensure the time of the belly dancing. After confirming before and when we were seated days later, the dancer never performed. We asked the waiter who then stated that the dancer would not perform because the audience was "low". Very disappointed and would have chosen another venue as we traveled 300 miles to visit NYC.

Waiter wasn’t pleased we didn’t get a whole bunch of expensive items on the menu... He got more rude as he realized it too. Food was Alright. They have some obscure rule about the pre fix either the whole table does it or nobody does... probably won’t be back.

I always order delivery from Casa La Femme. It’s my first time dining in. I didn’t like the type of chairs, but I’m in love with the Egyptian cuisine! The food is SO delicious! And the server really took care of us and our continuous requests! “Change the music, bring the salt (for my sister - I thought the food was perfect!), bring more spoons, etc.” The manager too was very generous with us, giving us a discount, because I’m a regular customer (delivery). With all honesty, their grilled half chicken is the best I’ve ever tasted - the lamb chops too!

We went here for a girls night. We really enjoyed the place. We arrived a bit late and we were flexible with our seating, but it took nearly two hours to get seated. We also told them that they put something wrong on our check and the waiter was rude to my guests and had an attitude about removing it. The customer service is what kills the spot. If they could work on it, it would be an outstanding experience. I would still go back, as the place is beautiful and the food is delicious and the drinks are very good.

I realize they are attempting to rebrand, they had only 3 wines .. total. Service staff untrained , unknowledgeable,
Slow, mismanaged, entertainment 45 minutes late. Worst thing is it's a Egyptian restaurant that served a Greek menu. While similar , they are not the same. The lamb chops were so heavily Spiced not seasoned but spiced as to make your tongue burn. All in all it was a bad joke but lots of fun to make fun of.
