We celebrated my mother's birthday at Casablanca. Despite our large party (party of 8), the quality of the food and the overall service was great. The waiter made entree recommendations based on the food preferences of each quest which made the experience very personalized. I highly recommend having the lobster bisque prior to your entree. I look forward to coming back soon again.

Always dined at the nearby option. Very good options. Delicious grouper and the risotto with seafood and asparagus excellent. Fries bad coated frozen poor quality. Drink too expensive and was upcharged in error. Staff excellent. Clean and suitable for celebrity sightings.

Food was amazing, the service even better. Our waiter had an assistant and they both were incredibly professional, gracious and pleasing. The lighting was very bright when we first arrived, but the waiter was wonderful and deemed the lights a bit for us. For a Saturday night in Miami by the water, the ambience is key, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. The view of the Miami river was gorgeous but again, the lighting would have improved that and made it more chick. This place was perfect to have an early dinner followed by a night out downtown/midtown. We then headed to a concert at the FTX Arena and it made the entire evening perfect.

I had never had a bad meal at Casablanca in my many visits. Until this one. I ordered the zarzuela. The sauce was unimaginative, thick and sparse, the shrimp, lobstertail and calamare rings were overcooked and one of the clams was unopeded (read dead).
I always recommend this restaurant to friends and will continue to do so, for the general quality and freshness of the seafood, the riverview ambience, and the service. Just be wary of the seafood stew.

Very bad, waitress didn’t make any food suggestions, took a long time to come to the table, didn’t know the menu nor the food to recommend or suggest, wanted to talk to the manager to complain and she didn’t want it, she kept saying manager is busy, he will take a long time to come” was stuck to get the same dish than the person I was with because she had no idea of the menu, paid so much money for such a bad experience...never coming here again, mashed potatoe tasted like the box one..very disappointed!

Overall our experience was positive, we only have two gripes. The stone crabs were previously frozen in spite of being in season . A dedicated seafood restaurant MUST serve fresh and never frozen stone crabs. Also, our food took an entire hour to arrive even though the restaurant was pretty empty. Our fish was fresh and deliciously prepared.

We order the Grilled Lobster and it was totally bland and over priced. My partner was also dissatisfied with the Crab Cake they ordered. Overall not a great experience besides the boats keep docking and spreading fumes adding making everyone uncomfortable

We had a great time for lunch! The best time is an early lunch around 12pm instead of later because it is not as busy or loud. Regardless always a nice time at Casablanca

Outside ambiance and view was awesome. Food was good. We were expecting more because of the location and because is a seafood restaurant but food wasn't something spectacular. Our waitress Nimse was above and beyond, she was so charismatic and attentive. I recommend make a reservation because the waiting time is so long on weekends.

Had a lovely dinner with friends. We arrived via the Miami River and docking was very easy with the assistance of your staff. We had an amazing dinner on our boat. The staff was very welcoming and the food was fantastic. We never felt rushed , enjoyed our evening to the fullest.
We will be back very soon.

There were no luncheon specials and the grouper was dry. Two dishes and one app cost over 100.00 - too much for lunch.

It was my fiancé’s first time at Casablanca and the view from table #35 was breath taking. The Downtown / Brickell view truly mesmerized us and above all Betty our server was beyond perfect. The food was impeccable. However, the drinks were a bit watered down. Other than that perfect experience. We will be regulars and always ask for table #35.

Thank you Yami & Jay 🥂

Las últimas 3 veces que hemos ido a Casablanca hemos esperado mas de una hora parados fuera del restaurante con calor y teniendo reserva hecha previamente con anticipación.

La comida es muy buena y el servicio también pero es inaceptable el gran problema que tienen para manejar las reservas.

Great food and nice service. Awesome view. Took a little longer than expected but it was worth it! When we went to leave however the hostess was giving dirty looks and who I believe to be the owner started howling at us. Super unprofessional & embarrassing. After an amazing experience that ruined it a bit.
