Food did not taste as good as it did last year. I’m not sure if the chef is different. They also tried to Bill our brunch as ala carte and was therefore over 40 dollars more. They did correct it.

What a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary! We had the best service - she was helpful, made excellent suggestions and was very attentive without being overly intrusive. My husband listened to her suggestion and ordered the double-cut pork chop - it was amazing!! I ordered the crab cake and it was ok - not the best I've ever had. I should have listened to her and ordered the chicken as she suggested. Our cheese course appetizer was delicious and both of our salads were wonderful too. We'll definitely be back!

Brought my girlfriend there for her birthday and was given two caramels at the end of the dinner. Other comparable places like Eddie Vs or Capital Grille have given us much better end experiences. Our waitress could see my demeanor shift and I ultimately flagged her down to order a dessert to not be embarrassed by the two caramels that were originally presented to the table. Can recommend for a meal but definitely not a special occasion.

First time back since Casbah had closed for the virus and we thought they did an excellent job in distancing the tables, cleaning the tables after each use, and generally being very protective of themselves and patrons. we felt comfortable and safe, and Casbah is the only restaurant that we feel comfortable enough to eat inside.

We had a lovely meal at Casbah. There is complimentary valet parking in the lot next to the restaurant, though there might be on-street parking available.

The restaurant has converted its courtyard into a heated area, and it is a lovely place to dine. The tables inside are a bit darker and the inside restaurant is quite small, but cozy.

The food was spectacular. We started with the chickpea flatbread with baba ganoush. There was also grilled sourdough bread with butter or labneh. For main courses we had the coriander crusted swordfish and the duck, both well prepared and delicious. For dessert, we shared their dark chocolate and raspberry bread pudding, which was enough for three people. There is a nice selections of wines by the glass....the Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon were excellent.

Dinner came to about $60 a person, with wine, taxes, and gratuity. Would definitely return!

During this very unusual time when restaurants are opening with caution and with restriction, the entire staff did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable and communicating expectations. Casbah is both a celebratory and an every day restaurant for us. To be back again was a real treat. In fact, the food itself was perfect in a way that it may be hadn’t been during more crowded Saturday service nights in the past.

happy to have casbah back open!!! while service was slightly off (i know it's just an adjustment to the "new normal") and the dining room lacked the energy it's always had pre-covid, the food was on point as always.

keep being you, casbah!

We went to dinner early.....fewer people, thus safer Covid environment. Beautiful, atmosphere, delicious food! All health and safety guidelines being followed to the letter. I felt very comfortable and was able to enjoy myself in public. I highly recommend the duck and they made a delicious Pimm’s Cup—— what a treat!!

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 : )
