It has become our annual holiday kickoff to Enjoy the Phipps holiday light up show followed by a dinner at Casbah. Joseph was so accommodating when we arrived a hour early for our reservations. Because of one knee surgery and one using hearing aids, he also accommodated our need for a quiet first floor table in the main dining room. Adam was our server and he was superb. He was always attentive but never intrusive. All our meals were fabulous from the melt in your mouth tenderloin to the delicious pork chop and salmon. What a wonderful evening!

We put our card in the folder provided and gave it to the waitress. She returned and said she did not have the card. We spent a stressful Thanksgiving worried about our card. Checked when they reopened and they said they did not find it. Had to cancel the card.

It was our second time at Casbah for brunch and each time it has been an excellent experience. The food is outstanding and the prix fixe menu is really a good value. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Love that there is valet parking right next to the restaurant and that they are kind enough to validate the parking so that it's free, other than tipping the valet, of course. Really a great experience that we recommend highly.

We sat downstairs in the Burgundy Room. This was a first for us. It is a beautiful room. I prefer it to the seating upstairs.

We had the Rock Shrimp & Calamari, and Burrata appetizers. Both were excellent, as was the House G&T cocktail (a flavorful twist on a standard). We had the Scottish Salmon, Swordfish, and Pork Chops for the main course. All three were excellent. Of the desserts, the Flourless Chocolate Cake was outstanding. However, the bread pudding wasn’t quite up to snuff.

The service was attentive without being overbearing.

A very positive experience overall. We will visit again.

Casbah is one of our favorites. Service is well timed and kind and helpful. My pasta was just. Tad undercooked, but still delicious with the scallops and crab mixed in.

We love the restaurant and the food like always.
The only thing was we brought the $10 coupon and told the waitress when we ordered our meal, but both she and us forgot to use it at the end, it’s a pity.

Every course of the beaujolais tasting dinner was superb. The amount of food and preparation of each course was perfect and the wine was delightful. We immensely enjoyed talking with our neighbors at the adjoining table, (which we normally don't do). It made the evening nicer. Last but not least, our server Barry was just superb, as usual. His laid back demeanor, casual approach, great personality, remembering decaf coffee without our asking are just a few of his qualities that make him among the very best. BRAVO BIG BURRITO

Beet salad was great. Filet good. Salmon disappointing.
Hope to do better next time around. We are regulars and enjoy eating in the covered patio area.

Usually we love Casbah and celebrate our birthdays there. It is pricey but worth it. On this day, my husbands birthday, it was obvious our food had sat a bit and his was was cold, mine was lukewarm. Our waitress did tell the manager, he never stopped by our table even though he stopped at every other table. Disappointed - and this was in a Tuesday night. Expect a $40 steak to be perfect

We had brunch yesterday at Casbah....just wondering, when do they change the menu as it's getting a bit old?
Also, some stuff is so over, like still using truffle oil with the potato cake. What about almost a quart of aioli on the smoked salmon?
The calamari and rock shrimp had a smaller pool of aioli plus a sweet vinaigrette that seemed a bit out of place.
The scallops were perfect but I laughed that there was about a bushel of parsley covering the dish. Maybe they need to think that "less is more"?
The eggs benedict were also well prepared.
Delicious pastry basket.
Don't get me wrong, the food is still very good, and the service was excellent, but it's just become a bit boring. Time for a change, me thinks.

Food was excellent however the service was terrible. We had to wait for at least 20 minutes from the time we ordered drinks until we received them. The salads were delivered without our cheese platter. So we had to wait ever longer to ask our lacking server for the platter. Reordering drinks, bread, coffee, etc, all took way longer then what is considered normal.

When we complained about how long things were taking to the server she had a bit of an attitude and didn’t apologize for the slow and disjointed service.

It was amazing from start to finish. Drinks were perfect, service was spot on and the food was A M A Z I N G
The octopus was the best I’ve ever had - hearty and tender, the duck was outstanding and the bread pudding was simply to die for.

We’ve never been disappointed

Our server, Brent S., is exceptional. We brought along our 11 year old son and Brent was very kind and helpful in accommodating a kid’s special requests! Casbah is my husband’s favorite restaurant and we were celebrating his birthday. It was nice to be there as a family and the food and service was top notch! Thank you for a great evening!

Did not care for the scallops and squash dish. Squash was not cooked. We had a filet and it was very undercooked. They handled it well. They took the squash dish off the bill.

Our experience was amazing on 11/1/19. We were celebrating a very special occasion, which we did not announce in advance of our arrival. When the staff overheard, they went out of their way to make our small gathering a wonderful and memorable one. Top tier service, and our meals and drinks were great too! Thank you to Casbah!

Drinks ordered @the table took awhile. The dinner service, servers & food prep was excellent. We had to request coffee refills and did not receive the traditional salted carmel which was disappointing. Overall the entrees and dessert were delicious. A nice birthday evening.
