    Dinner was great. We enjoyed the octopus appetizer and the always wonderful arugula salad. My husband thought the swordfish was fantastic. I had the half order of lobster and saffron pappardelle which was just perfect. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

    Great service, arrived early & was seated immediately this we weren’t rushed out after 1 & 1/2 hours. Had a $13 glass of red wine that was excellent, split the barata app & had a small portion of the fennel sausage pasta - all were delicious. I like the salted caramel at the end - nice touch. It was a beautiful evening, cool with no humidity & was disappointed that windows were closed & air conditioning was on this I was chilly. We had a great evening.

    Food was very good with Mark providing excellent service. Everything a la carte so a bit pricey but worth it. We sat in the front of the restaurant where it was extremely noisy. Some people don't understand inside voices. Also, don't seem to hold to 2 hour time limit for 3+ people because people there much longer. Overall very good but too loud for us.

    Once again, a great experience at Casbah for our anniversary. We started off with the House G+T and a Manhattan, along with tuna tartare, all of which came put promptly and were a delicious start to our meal. Our server was very courteous and answered any questions we had. Our entrees of the wild Alaskan halibut and the saffron pappardelle were done perfectly. Halibut was a generous portion, moist and flavorful. The pappardelle was loaded with lobster and the sauce was well seasoned. We finished off by sharing a creme brulle. Casbah was the perfect choice once again for a wonderful meal on a special occasion.

    The ambient noise was from a street flooding rain deluge striking your canopy, not your performance. Had us laughing at the unexpected soundtrack to the fine food. You’ve always been our go to eatery when a cant miss planned experience is desired or if a spontaneous relaxed evening for two was grace noted because it was there. Keep it up.

    Service was excellent. A bit slow at times, but I personally enjoy a slower pace for a nice meal. The food overall was great, but there were some weak points. The heirloom tomatoes in the tomato-watermelon salad were a bit mealy and the duck breast in my entree was overcooked, but otherwise things were quite good.

    I took my parents out to dinner for my dad's birthday, and he has some mobility issues and needed an accessible table. The entire team went above and beyond to ensure our table was ok and comfortable, and even offered pillows. Gale was an absolutely fantastic server, and was very sweet. I don't remember the two managers names, but they were so sweet, gracious, and just went above and beyond. Casbah was my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh already, but after the phenomenal drinks, food, and service, I will always be loyal to it! Thank you for a lovely and memorable birthday dinner.
