    Food is delicious and cooked to satisfaction, service, ambiance all very good. Love the yearly birthday coupons program that the Big Burrito Group offers - it is always something special to look forward to. The only suggestion I have is that the birthday coupon offer would be valid for the entire month of your Birthday instead of 14 days. Otherwise, we always enjoy all of this group's restaurants.

    We celebrated my husband's birthday at Casbah yesterday. It was a wonderful dinner. Our server, TJ was absolutely wonderful--- professional, friendly, funny. We had our favorite dishes --- Calamari & Rock Shrimp, Swordfish and the Red Pepper Casarrece. We enjoyed the drinks especially the Negroni. We just love Casbah for all of our special occasions.

    James (our server) was so kind and personable. The food was out of this world delicious and cooked to perfection. Wish I could have had dessert, but I wasn’t willing to forgo a bite of my main dish to make room… my bad! I definitely need to go back more often!

    Casbah is legendary but the food is kind of just alright and doesn't really warrant the price point as far as I'm concerned. Service is great, wine is just fine, ambience is Pittsburgh as all get out, but finally I go out to eat, to eat. And I loved the scallops and my salad was great but everything else I tried was underwhelming. But

    This is our third time eating at this restaurant - the food and ambiance keep bringing us back. Service is excellent. While my salmon was more rare than I prefer, our waitress immediately remedied the situation. We'll be returning the next time we are in the area.

    Casbah is always a favorite for a special occasion. The light and ambiance of the patio provides pleasant surroundings for dishes that are predictably just right. The pork chop was perfectly cooked and seasoned and nicely mixed with accoutrements, following well the always delicious tuna tartare.
