We arrived fifteen minutes early for our seating and were attended promptly. We opted for the fixed price dinner. The first course was standard appetizers, all very good. But, I don't eat eggplant so the waiter had the chef make me a curry yogurt and the babaganush went to my wife. Second course good. Third course; I had the roasted lamb, perfect! Seared on the outside and pink inside. Well seasoned and accompanied. My wife had the whole roasted fish. Overcooked and oversalted, but edible. Desert was excellent. Drinks, OK and expensive. The belly dancer new her moves!
Private party overtook restaurant but staff did best to handle our small party
Came here for our first anniversary and had an amazing dinner experience. The decoration is exotic and makes it great for a romantic dinner. I was hesitant to try the prix fix menu at first but ended up enjoying it. Although it is expensive, the food was very good and filling, we also got to see the belly dancer perform while we were eating. Service was awesome, the waiter we had did a very good job and was attentive to all our needs. We met owner on our way out and was very nice.
This is a very unusual restaurant and provides a very unusual dining experience by creating the feelung of actually being in the middle east. I recommend that you try it.
Was not worth the price for the food we received. The waitress was a bit all over the place and forgot many things we asked. Cool ambiance but that’s all.
This place is just incredibly beautiful with the most authentic Egyptian food to be found in New York. Whether you were coming here for business or pleasure or combination of both the service, atmosphere, food and people are spectacular. I highly recommend it. It is a regular for me
I love Casa La Femme for a girl's night out. The decor is warm and inviting, even if it's a bit over the top. The attention to detail is amazing, and the different rooms (including the restrooms) are beautiful. The service has been excellent each time I have dined, and the Prix Fixe Menu, which offers a variety of tasty food, has also been consistently good.
The food was incredibly good, but the rest of my experience was not good. They put us at the worst table in the place even though I made a reservation and there were plenty of nicer empty tables available (they told me these were pre fix tables only). The waitress was pleasant but spoke to us like we'd only eaten white bread all our lives and never tried another cuisine. And then they never filled our water glasses even though the restaurant was half empty. I cannot figure out what was going on- maybe they thought we were tourists and they could get away with this, or they had something against two women eating together without a man? Or we weren't dressed up enough for them? Again, the restaurant was beautiful and the food was really good, but I can never go back. I can't think of the last time I felt so insulted by how I was treated.
The service was AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. DO NOT EAT HERE. SAVE YOUR MONEY. The food was average and the music will put you to sleep. We had reservations at 8:30pm and we didn't leave until after midnight. The service was very slow and there weren't that many people in the restaraunt. The owner clearly had his favorite guests which we were not. We were ignored most of the night. Stay away from the terrible crabcakes, awful. The entire experience was underwhelming. The only highlight was the belly dancer who came out once. The owner is VERY RUDE. Again, save your money. When a waiter brought over a bottle we ordered, they asked if we wanted to open it? Who opens your own bottle. Dull knives weren’t even adequate for cutting the lamp chops. Drinks were terrible. We experienced the worse service ever. WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING. Forgot to mention, we had to get up at least 15 times during the night to ask where our drinks were, the status of our food and why service was sooo slow. They placed us in the most dark section of the restaurant in the back. There were 2 candles on the table. I had to physically get up and take candles from other tables because it was so dark. This was probably one of the worst dinning experiences ever. Very sad since it was my best friends birthday we were celebrating.
Terrible service !
First time and it was amazing!! Definitely coning back!
One the best gems of the Village, this Egyptian restaurant (think mediterranean with VERY good food and incredible ambience) wows even the most unambitious traveler. This is a place that pulses with charm, character and of course great courses.
This restaurant was fantastic. The server was very attentive and engaging. The ambiance is unparalleled. Service was a little slow because they didn't put in your next order until the first course was finished. BUT it did give us time to really enjoy each dish and digest before the next course.
The food was amazing. The ambiance was great. It was Valentine's day so there was a prefixed menu. We will definitely be going back when we have access to the entire menu. Oh, did I say the food was AMAZING!!!
I want to like this place so bad but my experience was terrible. Dessert was served before dinner, we were completely neglected by the waiter and every other person on the floor. We had to stand up and walk to the bottle of wine we purchased to pour ourselves more. Service is better at TGIFriday’s
Great drink! Amazing performance. Very cool west village spot
Overall excellent place to try egyptian food however the portions are too small for the price
I have been to this place twice, first time with just my husband on a friday and second time with my whole family including my parents on a Saturday. My first time experience was a 5 star one but the second time experience was not that great. The overall food quality was better when i went there first time. Second time it wasnt that great, maybe because it was a lot more crowded. The belly dancing entertainment was a lot more fun, interactive and longer during my first visit compared to second. Portions are small. Overall one can check this place out once for the experience.
Our server was the sweetest person and really tried to make the experience memorable. However, the way management wanted payment for a large group and confused/finagled us into a pre-fix menu was really odd and confusing. It just made the night interesting. Our drinks were served in small batches so it took forever for us to make a toast. The food was also served in odd batches so again half the table was waiting while the other let their plates get cold.
The saving grace was our waiter who was kind, funny and did her best to make our experience the best it could be.
It was nice no more then tbat! The place looks kind of empty of Thursdays nights. The food is horrible. We order coscous that was suppose to be “home made” - no way it was home made. The soup was not tasty at all.
Good food. Service was a bit slow even though there were only 2-3 tables to serve.
Too loud at the time we were there. Lamb chops were tough while when usually delivered were better. Grilled chicken is still the best. I always order food to be delivered; going to the restaurant was a disappointment: they delayed our order for so long, brought items that were not up to the expected standards, and some plates were poorly served. The server, though, was attentive and caring. And the manager tried his best to compensate for the negative experience by giving us a 20% discount. I know I’m not going to go there again, but I will still order for delivery the best halal grilled chicken in NYC.
Loved this place! The lambchops were cooked to perfection and the service was attentive and efficient. 10/10 recommend.
Wonderful and fun night
Never have I had to be at a restaurant for more than 3 and a half hours. The food portion is tiny and not even that great in all honesty. Is it worth the price I had to pay? No, I could pay less elsewhere for great tasting food and more authentic. Don’t get me started on the service, our waiter was very sweet and informing but for ever time we asked for something, it would come an hour later. We waited for our food for almost an hour and a half, our dessert for an hour and check for almost 30 mins. We came here thinking it would be great and quick for a birthday celebration to continue our night elsewhere but that time was kind of gone in the wind. Such a waste of time and money, completely not worth it, go to Astoria for better Egyptian food and ambience not here.
One of the best restaurant that I truly enjoy. Food is always fresh and delicious. I had the Branzino fish (Branzini) and requested for it to be filet. It was simply exquisite. I just wish it came with a side of couscous like the salmon. The ambiance is always fun and vibrant. The belly dancer was amazing as well.
Awesome music and belly dancer!
We really enjoyed our meal at Casa La Femme, except for the extremely loud music....I asked a few times for them to turn down the volume a bit, but that never happened. That would be my only real criticism, but it made it difficult to talk with my dinner companion. The service was excellent, by the way.
Amir was great as was the rest of the staff. We had a large group and they did their best to give us personalized attention. Great atmosphere.
It was an awesome experience! The staff was super friendly and the food was great. Moreover, it was a great environment with a good selection of music and a bellydancer who went from table to table.
10/10 would definately reccomend
My boyfriend and I dined here a few days ago because it was across the street from a play we were going to see. In short, the ambiance is lovely and dramatic, but it's not much bang for your buck. $8 gets you a little bowl of hummus and 3 pieces of freshly toasted pita bread. It was delicious. But $8?
I had the mousaka and it was a bowl of bland vegetables with even blander cheese on top. It was solidly mediocre. My boyfriend, however, got the chicken and devoured it. So maybe opt for the meat dishes instead of the vegetarian ones.
Great meal and great time
People who Reserved should always comes first even if it’s having a drink from the bar but No for some reason We were told the quickest way to get alcohol is to buy wine for 50 bucks because the bar was way too packed with walk ins. So we did Buy WINE 8x and more and the appetizer still never came out until hours later . Then the food took another 1 hour and a half to come out that the rice was warm going close to cold if you didn’t eat it pretty fast. Therefore the bill was pretty big but that’s what we came for a good time for the birthday girl but the service was pretty horrible. I wouldn’t book another party here!
Incredibly slow service. I guess they were timing for the dancers but never communicated that. Over chargee us for an extra bottle of wine and serving of tea. Tried to call and fix it but they never rang back. Overall disappointing given the price
Visited CLF on Saturday evening with friends of ours. All aspects of our visit were memorable. The food, music, Belly Dancer and slow paced tasty meal were all 100% perfect.
Thanks for a great night.
The ambience and the service was great. We went for my birthday. The belly dancing added a perfect touch to the night. The place had a lot of people but our table under the tent gave us perfect space to talk and mingle.
Music was too loud
Went on a Thursday night, so it wasn't crowded at all. Was seated immediately, which was great and the ambiance was lovely. Took a little while for us to get our order started, but she was the only server on staff for the night.
The decor is amazing. perfect for a romantic date. We had a canopy, so we were very comfy and it sets a lovely mood for a couple.
The server explained the menu, how it works, and was quite informative about the menu. The only down side was that some of the things we ordered ran out according to the chef, so I ended up having to switch my dinner choice. Additionally, the quality of food wasn't to my expectation, but that could have been related to my original choice no longer being available to me.
Great ambiance, good service, but the food could have been better.
I would recommend this place to a friend as overall it was pleasant.
