Our full service mahogany bar is a popular stop for locals and visitors looking for a nice refreshment and a hearty meal in a cozy, friendly atmosphere. We have three dining rooms, each with a slightly different character afforded by our hand-formed brass hearth fireplace, Western original art collection, famous antique gun collection, and alluring floral arrangements.
Casa's Famous Fried Chicken
Mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuit, and honey
Great fried chicken and on the weekends great prime rib! Fried prawns are excellent too.
Lovely neighborhood feel, great food and service. Old school at its best.
We took our son here for his 16th birthday, and we had a great time. My husband and I had the fried chicken, and I ordered a lemon drop (or two):-). Casa Orinda makes one of the best "lemon drops" with the perfect tartness. Our kids loved the Shirley Temples and raved about the fried chicken biscuits and honey. My Dad had the fried prawns, and they were delicious. The Service is a ten! Thank you, Casa Orinda, for helping us create good memories with delightful food and spirits!
Service is always first rate. Great traditional restaurant with a home style menu. The fried chicken is the best in the Bay Area. I’ve never had a bad meal here. The capon dore is another winner!
GREAT to be back indoors having the same great food as a year ago, but inside again! Sat at the bar, brussel sprouts - it doesn't get any better!
I'm so happy that Casa Orinda made it through the pandemic. Thee menu is smaller for the time being but they still serve their famous fried chicken. I took someone who had never been there before and she loved it. Pay no attention to the info on OpenTable - they are no longer doing outdoor dining, it's all indoor seating at 50% capacity.
Lack of ventilation for indoor dining, too many people without masks. Rude waitress who left us waiting without menu. Over-salted, over-cooked food. Never again!
Excellent service. All the food was very good and well prepared.
We took a guest that has never been there. She had the fettucine alfredo and said it was delicious. Our go-to is the fried chicken and it was juicy! Great service, too.
After over a year of not being able to dine inside at one of our favorite restaurants, it was great to sit indoors in the lounge, next to a warming fire, enjoy a cocktail and delicious food. Nice to see some old faces and new ones, too. Tables are very far apart and they are keeping everything meticulously clean. Not the old vibrant crowded bar scene, but hoping that will return very soon.
Only complaint is they don’t have half and half milk for coffee. They only serve whole milk. That is unacceptable for any restaurant. That’s a huge deal for coffee drinkers.
Other than that, it was good as usual.
Pretty standard, not many people, they are just re-opening for indoor dining. It’s good but not in full swing yet.
Excellent service warm reception our table wasn’t ready but we were made to feel welcome and comfortable offered a complimentary drink and made warm and comfy. Great table provided and excellent service. Food was great.
Absolutely love this place.. We have been going to Casa Orinda for years, but with COVDI, we have not been there in some time until this past Saturday night. The people, food quality, and service are always great. This place is a gem.
Great food & drinks. So happy to once again enjoy indoor dining at our favorite restaurant!
A delightful dining experience. I was pleasantly surprised when the check arrived.
We love this amazing place. It is historic and warm and the staff is very friendly
They have a Wonderful outside set up with tables well spaced and excellent powerful heaters that made me feel like we weren’t outside. The food was great! I had the famous fried chicken and it did not disappoint. We will definitely be back
Even tho the weather turned on us, they heaters kept us warm and we enjoyed a fabulous meal with excellent food and service.
Loved the Fried chicken and the Capon Chicken!
Plus great cocktails!
Casa is the best!
Great fried chicken and chocolate cream pie! Valet parking is very appreciated.
Best wings ever!
It was my husbands birthday. We loved the Fried Chicken. We came with kids and they put us in a total separate dining room which was great.
Great prime rib!
It's an institution. They don't try to be "hip", they don't change the menu or the furnishings. Just good people and good food!
Casa Orinda has taken special care to provide a safe dining experience (Covid19). I was so impressed with their health measures, while also keeping the friendly service that is the hallmark of their success. Well done, we will be back!
Superb friendly and romantic atmosphere with outstanding food and cocktails! the service is absolutely the best!
It was our first time and the experience was very pleasant. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming especially our server Marty!
Can not believe your restaurant ( according to our waiter ) does not have authentic Tobasco sauce for your clam chowder. Although I personally like chulula sauce. But only for eggs and Mexican food. We ate at your restaurant Friday, Nov 6, 2020
Try the enchiladas special!
The margaritas are the best!
Just like “Cheers” but with food. It’s great to be recognized and remembered. Comfort food that is all homemade. Love the fact that even the whipped cream on desserts is made with a whisk! Who does that nowadays? Amazing.
Even with Covid challenges, Casa Orinda was in good spirit, dinner was tasty! We enjoyed eating outdoors.
Try the pan-seared chicken!
The kitchen (and bar) haven't lost a step in these trying times.
It was wonderful to be back at one of our favorite restaurants. Food was a good as we remembered. We will be back.
Casa Orinda never disappoints.
We sat outside and had the Special Seafood Linguini.
And the Chicken Marsala!!!
Our hostess, server and Valet were all excellent.
I used to work there over 30 year as ago..Salad girl was my title. I also worked with Jairo, and the sweet lovely lady that worked at lunchtime. I can't remember her name, sorry, it started with an L. Leola?? I also worked with Pon. Hi Charlotte, Hi John. Sorry we missed you. Love you guys. Elena Tyrrell (Menge)
Very relaxing and welcoming atmosphere with extraordinary cocktails and wonderful food, matched by excellent service always.
Try the capon chicken avocado!!
A wonderful place with great food and wonderful nostalgia.
The whole family loves the Casa. Food was delicious. The prime rib is the best. Margaritas as well were fabulous.
