The food was delicious. Loved the Barada appetizer and the calamari appetizer. My husband always gets a pork chop and was very impressed with his meal. Paige was a very attentive server. We will definitely be going back.

Ambiance was awesome and we had a great time! Food was well prepared but portions were very small and I am not a big eater. Service was present but clearly not engaged in the process and we felt uncomfortable asking for any specifics- like more tea. Overall a great environment but go for drinks and apps only.

As is always the case at Casbah, the food, service and ambiance were outstanding. The fact that we had a similar experience as we've had in previous visits, even though Covid-19 challenges were a factor during this visit, is all the more impressive. Speaking of Covid-19, we felt very safe in every way during our stay...from the spacing of the tables, the masks being worn to the disinfecting capabilities, we felt very comfortable during our most enjoyable dining experience.

We had a wonderful time. Our server Barry was friendly and very attentive. The dinners and meatball appetizers and beet salad were delicious. The Swordfish and Salmon entrees were particularly good. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Casbah is our favorite dining spot for special occasions. Due to Covid-19, we have not been in a restaurant except to pick up pre-ordered food for many months, but decided to make an exception. We are glad that we did.

My best friend and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice Valentine's Day dinner at Casbah and, as always, it was a wonderful experience. Our server, Paige, was knowledgeable and personable. My only disappointment was that they were out of the duck, which I should have expected it because we had a late reservation time. My second choice, the filet, was delicious anyways! I appreciate the huge wine selection they have as we were able to get a bottle of wine that paired well with both of our meals while being able to stay at a reasonable price point. Casbah is one of the few places in town that I will always recommend without hesitation to anyone looking for an upscale dining experience without feeling stuffy or pretentious!

Came here for Valentine’s Day and it was so lovely. The ambiance made a perfect date, the food was so yummy, they also offer half size portions of pasta if you are between 2 options. The wine flight was also great! Everything was very well priced

We had 8:00 reservations for the Saturday before Valentine's Day, walked in 5 minutes prior to dinner and was promptly sat at a well-positioned table in the rear of the restaurant, socially distanced. The waitress was kind and attentive, had the kitchen accommodate our special requests for dinner, and closed the night with two decadent desserts. We'd highly recommend Casbah for any evening or special occasion.

Our Valentine’s Day dinner for six was really special. We all ordered the Valentine’s Day special meal which was delicious in every way. Our server Alexis took care of our every need and was very attentive. The atmosphere was cozy and we also felt very safe in terms of COVUD virus safety. All protocols were in place and made us all very comfortable. We were all very glad Casbah has reopened and had this special event for their customers. We were grateful to get out of our homes, socialize and eat a fantastic meal safely. Thank you!

My husband and I both enjoyed the Valentine Tasting menu. As always, care with masks, spacing, and cleanliness. The four courses were all well prepared and excellent. Salad, crab cake with a great kale salad, filet and sweet potato ravioli, a small pan a cotta to end. Always surprising sides with each course. A lovely bottle of wine. A win for us!!!!

Casbah is one of the top restaurants in town and it never disappoints. My wife and I ate there on a Monday night and it was as full as it could be due to Covid restrictions. That didn't stop the food and service from being exceptional. I had the crab cakes as an entree and my wife had the chicken. We started the meal with a very generous cocktail and split the rockshirmp/clamari starter- it was prepared extremely well and I highly recommend it.

They have valet parking which is great as parking in Shadyside is never easy.

I have been to Casbah numerous times. Every time I go, the staff exceeds my expectations. I am vegetarian and sometimes restaurants are not very accommodating. Not the case with Casbah. Whether lunch or dinner, the chef comes up with some dish that is thoughtful and delicious. Alexis has been my server the last two times I've been there and she goes above and beyond to ensure our dining experience is fantastic. I highly recommend Casbah.
