A few dishes didn't taste as authentic as you'd expect. The banana chicken appetizer in particular wasn't cooked well. The seafood paella was really good.

Cascal is a great place with a wide variety of Spanish-style foods (tapas, paella) and an extensive drink menu. Service is great, and they have lots of outdoor seating options

Absolutely love Cascal! Delicious food and such caring staff. Have always been super safe during Covid, and they even picked up several additional heaters to help with the winter cold so people can enjoy their meals.

I prefer outdoor dining away from the restaurant building. Away from the piped-in music for a quieter dining experience, now that there is no Street traffic.

It was a wonderful birthday dinner spot. Pandemic where? The waiters made sure that I had a heater right next to the table and they lit the tree outside as an awe factor.Ambience was great, I felt we were in out own little nook.The Paella Rusticata was amazing and the tres leech cake is my favorite. I frequented this restaurant pre-corona, and they were still amazing right until the second shutdown. It is a MUST GO.

The first rain of November, first night of Unopening of indoor dining due to COVID. Cascal has worked hard to make outdoor dining possible with winter weather upon us. We did dress for cold weather but, we’re comfortable enough to remove our coats. The food was excellent as always.

Such a great place to meet friends, enjoy the tapas and have a margarita on the outdoor patio. We shared the Queso and shaved Brussel sprout salad. The salad was simple yet amazing! Carlos was our waiter - professional and attentive.
