This time I made reservations for 5 people at 6. We arrived at 6:03 and our table was not ready. We waited 10 mins and they decided to assemble a half booth half chair table directly next to the podium and the wide open door. So my husband would frequently have new comers standing next to him and we had a constant cool breeze. It was a chilly evening. In general we like Cascal because we love tapas. And we enjoy a variety of tapas. One of the plates we ordered was the hearts of palm salad. It should have been called a fennel salad because it didn’t have any hearts of palm, mostly fennel. It was good though, just missing the star ingredient. I did inform our server, nothing more was said. The croquettes were tasty but not warm enough in the middle an a bit too liquid. We also ordered the octopus, lamb meatballs, crispy olives, Spanish tortilla with chorizo, and the flank steak. The best was the steak: cooked perfectly with a nice chimichurri sauce that even my kids loved it. The biggest portion was the torilla. All in all dinner was good and our experience won’t deter us from coming again but probably as a date instead of as a family.

So was the grilled calamari and palm salad. The service was definitely not finessed, seems worse every time I go. Otherwise it’s my go to place on Castro

We got seated right away, which is great. The waitress did not say anything about Mother's Day special, she didn't even know it was Mother's Day. I asked about mimosa, but she said that they don't specialize in mimosas. So I got sangria instead. They could have given a rose to each table for Mother's Day but nothing. It was like any other day. The food was great but customers care was not great.

My favorite dish, mushroom empanada, didn’t disappoint, along with the stuffed dates. I’m looking forward to my next visit! The caipirinha is just as delicious as ever!

They have live Latin music inside the restaurant that is very fun and festive. When we arrived at 8 pm last Saturday, people were loving the music and dancing. We will be back.

We booked a pre show dinner reservation and thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. So many delicious items, particularly loved the ceviche and stuffed dates + the lamb chops and paella outstanding. Was busy however service was excellent and our dishes came very quickly. Always enjoy eating here.

Ate outside a bit chilly they had some heaters… wind died down at some point so over all eating outside was ok. Tried to do a birthday surprise didn’t go so well. Gave the front the cupcakes with 4 toppers only 3 came out. Didn’t mention anything just dropped off the plate of cupcakes.

But this is the second time that I have been there and multiple dinner plates and bowls have major chips. Worries me about the cleanliness when plates are chipped. Also the food was not served hot.

I would have given 5 stars for service but I felt rushed from dessert on. The restaurant was not crowded so is not like we were delaying the reservation process. I guess it was time for the waitress to depart but she could have asked someone else to assist with the check.

We were seated at an inside table for two that was opposite the double doors to the outside, and every time those doors opened we were hit with a blast of cold wind. Additionally, it’s apparently part of the hostess’s routine to remove napkin rings and leave the napkins on the bread plates when seating guests, but that was done before we were escorted to our table. That, in combination with a table that hadn’t been wiped down well, left the strong impression that our table had just been vacated, and we’d been seated at a dirty table with used napkins. We asked for a different table, and were told that the only available options were outside. Since those were shielded from wind and heated, we made the change. From there, everything improved dramatically. Service was gracious, friendly, and prompt. The food was delicious and attractively presented. Cocktails and dessert both added to the celebratory atmosphere. The prices were more than we would support for anything other than a special occasion, but that’s what this was, and after a rough start, this lived up to our expectations.

Was too cold outside, but one of the heaters wasn't working. Service wasn't great. Food was decent, but not amazing. The place is expensive and they accidentally added $49 to my tab when I gave them the credit card. I'm not quite sure why this place is so popular.
