We have been away from Casbah for 4 months due to COVID, and it was a pleasure to return. We thought Casbah did an excellent job in making us feel safe and healthy. It also was gratifying to see that all their other customers did wear masks into the restaurant as well as whenever they got up from their table. The food as always was very good and the service excellent. With the tables being spread out and as a result fewer customers at one time their was no noise and it almost felt like eating in your own living room. Great for them to be reopen.

We really appreciated Casbah's efforts to minimize community spread of COVID-19, with adequate spacing between tables, all staff wearing masks, handling glassware appropriately, non-reusable menus, requirement for diners to wear masks except when seated at their own tables. Wish all local restaurants would take the matter equally seriously.

superb belated BDAY dinner for my honey; we were lucky that the soft-shelled crabs were still in season and I had some as an appetizer. We each had a bday Kir Royale, our usual entrees of the local raised chicken, and the past with scallops and crabmeat; topped off by creme brûlée and 3 scoops of Mille's chocolate ice cream. so the food was spectacular but so was our waiter and the professionalism and attention he had that made the bday dinner even better. everyone is always so nice. we love coming to our favorite restaurant

Amazing experience. Have visited the restaurant around a dozen times but this was the first time post-lockdown

The staff was extremely welcoming and were all wearing masks. Plenty of hand sanitizer and the tables were father than 6ft apart.

The food, as always, is incredible.

We were seated on the enclosed patio where it was warm, but far better than so many overly air conditioned restaurants. After nearly ten minutes the waitress approached and apologized saying she was not told of our presence. From then on, service was exemplary. Every morsel of food was perfectly prepared and delicious. A basket of bread was a welcome surprise as other restaurants where we recently dined are not serving bread. Casbah is our favorite go to for special occasions and never fails to please.

We had an excellent anniversary dinner! The food was phenomenal as were are drinks. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. They gave us complimentary salted caramels for our anniversary. The only possible con was our meatball appetizer (while delicious) only came with two meatballs. Overall, we will come again.

Casbah never disappoints. Casbah consistently delivers at a very high level. The pasta is always done at the right level. I appreciated that the deserts were both what you'd expect when you order specific dessert (e.g., creme brulee or bread pudding, but sufficiently distinctive to make them 'indigenous" to Casbah as a restaurant.

My one quibble is that the Aurgula salad with Pancetta and goat cheese needs a spray of citrus (squeeze of an orange slice) to give it the acid needed to cut through the saltiness and fattiness (both of which are good things). I've been saying this for 20 years though : )

Casbah never disappoints. Atmosphere is incredible actually liked it more that less tables are being served due to Covid restrictions. Service and food were fantastic! Make sure to get the Calamari some of the best I’ve had. Nice selection of cocktails too.

We always enjoy coming here. The cheese tasting is always our favorite and this time we tried the Burrata which was really good as well. Wonderful cocktails. Servers are always wonderful and helpful. Even called us when one of our companions left their phone!
Bonus...free valet which is a big bonus given parking is a challenge in this neighborhood.

It’s not their fault, but things aren’t as good as they were. Servers were not as sharp and knowledgeable, the wait between courses was extended despite half the crowd. Limited choices compared to usual. Valet services were gone after dinner. Food was still excellent but the new normal is ruining the experience without lowering the price. Might have to try again in a few months.

Fantastic food, always accommodating to the various restrictive dietary needs of our group members (vegan, celiac/gluten free, and dairy free). I prefer the patio year-round, with a nice breeze as well as heaters for the winter. The servers followed CDC COVID guidelines with masks, minimized seating, a copious helping of hand sanitizer, and single-use menus.

After being away from dining out for three months due to 5he lockdown we chose Casbah as our first night out. We are glad we did. While not exactly like what we normally experience there, the evening was very enjoyable and comfortable. They have done a very good job of keeping the high quality of their food and wine, and doing the things that are necessary to have a high end dinner in this covid world we now live in.

Thank you for making our first dinner out a success.
