This was our third time having brunch at Casbah and we really enjoyed it. Everything from the brunch cocktails to the small breads to the entrees was exceptionally good. Service was super friendly, and we love the valet parking in the lot right next door. Can't wait to go back again!

Everything about our experience was phenomenal. The server was exceptional, giving us details of the dishes and his recommendations were spot on. The duck and the crab cakes were particularly our favorites which is exactly what he said it would be. The flavors of the food were just delicious and unique. The atmosphere was casual yet intimate and though it was a chilly night it was warm and cozy in the restaurant. Fantastic evening.

The atmosphere was comfortable, the service was good and professional. Our meal was tasty. Our only complaint was that the lighting was so dim that we needed to use our phones to read the menu. Valet parking was convenient.

A bit overpriced. Good service. Asked for nice table to celebrate husband’s birthday and had smallest table in room. His pasta with chicken was very good as was the house gin tonic. My Malbec wine not great. Crab cakes salty and wouldn’t order again

Great service and good ambience. Food was a hit or miss. The lamb shank for 2 was largely tasteless, the sword fish was over done. The pasta however was fabulous and the beet salad was excellent.

Our service was g, the food was great. We ate on the covered patio area. The heater was a bit too hot, so we asked our server to speak with the manager about turning it down. Things went from warm to hot after the request and we were overheated and flushed.

Excellent service. Great food and wine. I would highly recommend. I met a friend here for happy hour and we both grabbed a glass of wine and enjoyed the cheese plate as an appetizer. I had the roasted beet salad and she had the tuna tartare. While I didn't try the tuna, she said it was very good.
I am not a fan of goat cheese, so when I noticed the beet salad was with ricotta instead of goat cheese (as is normally on a beet salad), I was intrigued. It did not disappoint! I love beets, and the combination of flavors in this salad was great. I also was very impressed with the number of beets served on the salad. I was expecting it to be lettuce with some beets, but it was all beets! Very very good!

My boyfriend and I had one of the best dates in our 2 years of dating here! It’s really nice in both the inside room (dark) and the porch esc room (a lot brighter). The booths inside are awesome because you and your guest sit on the same side of the table, which is awesome for couples. We started off with the cheese board and it was awesome! Really good selection of cheeses, and definitely up charge to the prosciutto. We also split the calamari and rock shrimp which was to die for. For entrees, he had the swordfish (and loved it) and I had the tuna tar tar. It’s awesome, and very flavorful. To finish off, we split the Creme brûlée with rhubarb and berries, as well as some coffee. Everything we had was outstanding, and I cannot recommend this place more.

Great night out. We sampled a majority of the menu and loved it all except for the crab cake which was still good but not up to par with a good Maryland cake. Great combination of flavors on all the items we ordered-- tuna tartare, spring salad, beet salad, pasta primis- short rib ravioli and black pepper pappardelle, entrees-- crab cakes and filet mignon (fabulous cut of meat cooked to perfection). Our server and the service were outstanding! Our server made excellent wine pairing selections with each course. He was discrete and attentive.

Scallops with red pepper make Casbah a destination. Large scallops are prepared perfectly.
Casbah patio looks remodeled and is very nice.
With high ceiling and air circulation it gives confidence of safety. Tables are spaced apart.
Service is professional. We placed our order and said we wanted it spaced slowly. It was just right.
