The food was amazing and I loved the ambiance. I took my partner to dinner for his birthday and we had a great time. It’s not the cheapest, but totally worth it

I usually enjoy sitting up on the patio, but the weather was too hot so we were seated downstairs. This is a cave-like atmosphere, so be warned that it is darker and oddly has a musty, basement like smell.

Food was wonderful! It was my birthday, and the chef had written Happy Birthday in chocolate around the rim of the plate which was nice.

When we sat down the waitress said “everything on our menu is really good “. She was 100% correct. 5 of us had different entrees and they were all excellent. We had only been there is the past for a cocktail but I’m very glad we decided to eat there. We will put it on our list to go again.

There were 4 of us dining for a birthday. One steak came out over cooked and the server immediately scooped it up to correct it. The only problem was 3 of us were nearly finished when her new steak arrived. Both the manager and the server apologized and assured us they would take care of this. The Casbah is one of our favorite restaurants and I had high expectations for how they would correct this. They took both meals off our friends bill, AND gave her birthday card back to her to use another time with no restrictions. This is the kind of service we have come to expect at Casbah and we were not disappointed. In our party 2 had halibut and claimed it was outstanding, 1 salmon that was cooked to perfection, and the steak lover said her filet was one of the best she has ever had. Thanks Casbah for being consistently outstanding in every area!

We ate at Casbah for a birthday celebration with friends. It was a surprise and the staff did a great job making our guests feel welcome and important. Our waitress was great and when it was time to have dessert the managers even offered to plate our cookies that we had brought from somewhere else. Very awesome thing to do! I would highly recommend Casbah to anyone!

Upon entering the restaurant, the energy level was just perfect for spending time with good friends. The wait staff was attentive and very helpful in helping us select our meals. The diversity of the others was delightful; young families, millenials, seniors (like ourselves) and even older seniors who still dressed in ties and jackets. When people needed assistance, there was no issue and everyone was taken care of. Casbah has always been a favorite dinner place for us and we continue to be delighted with our visits.

Casbah is awesome!! We loved the patio and our service was excellent. The food was great! We had the beet salad and octopus for starters. They were awesome!! For dinner we had the red pepper cassareccia and the duck! Both were delicious. Their bread and butter is also great!! Drinks were great too!! We love it here!!

First bad meal at Casbah. The poor service, throughout the meal, was the real killer. If you are going to spend $75 a meal, you should expect better service. Will definitely take a break from eating there.

We arrived at 12:50 for a 1 pm reservation and were seated almost immediately, which was very nice.
We ordered lunch shortly thereafter and my dining partner’s gazpacho arrived shortly, but we waited till about 1:50 to receive our main entrees.
My crab in the salad was medicinal and chlorine in taste and odor, and inedible. I did not send it back, and just ate the greens. I did mention this to the waiter, so as to spare future dîners a similar experience. Incidentally, this entree was not taken off the bill. I did not complain.
I have been an enthusiast of Casbah for many years and thus found this experience very disappointing

One of the best and most consistent restaurants in Pittsburgh. Halibut and salmon were both outstanding. We have one diner that gets the orecchiette every time we go and has never been disappointed. The service is always excellent. Casbah is a dining experience we always look forward to.

What a wonderful dinner — Jamaica was wonderful- very helpful and attentive without being overbearing.

It was so hard to make a decision since so many things sounded good — will definitely have to visit again to try other options.

True plus to have valet parking!!!
