My only complaint is that I wish whoever checked us in had done it the right way so that Open Table didn’t think we hadn’t shown and I had to explain that we had.
Cascal is our new go to place for dinner. Wanted best place to take my Valentine and sounded like best bet on the internet. We enjoyed the ambiance, service and food. It is really a nice place to sit and dine on Castro St. Also we felt it was quite affordable.
Service was really bad, it took the waiter more than 13 min to take our order, we order drinks and we asked to 3 different person for our drinks after 10 min food is relatively good and the ambiance too
Wonderful service and excellent food. I recommend trying the banana leaf chicken tapa dish. Really enjoyed the cucumber jalapeno margarita as well.
It’s always a fun place, love the paella the flank steak was excellent also
Food was outstanding, but a bit pricey.
Valentine’s Day dinner was a little crowded and noisy. There seemed to be extra tables added, since they were very close together. But the food was excellent and the service was good, so we enjoyed our dinner.
We went to Cascal for Valentine's Day and it was just perfect. Our waiter, Ivan, gave us great recommendations and always seemed to be there when needed. The butternut squash soup and queso fundido were so delicious and my husband live the puerco cubano. I could see the meat just falling off the bone, very juicy. And I love the atmosphere of thia place. We'll have to come back when they have live salsa music.
Great customer service. The food and ambiance was amazing. Highly recommend Cascal.
We love the place and support you almost from the day one. We brought the rest of the fam8ly, our friends and acquaintances. Love the food, love drinks and love your hard working crew.
Very good tapas and drinks. The service was friendly, fast and accurate. It gets crowded very quickly on the weekend so go early.
The food was delicious and unique flavors and taste combinations.
Cascal paella is terrific. Serving person Victor was attentive, prompt and able to anticipate desires. Have been there several times and never disappointed.
I highly recommend this fine restaurant to foodies.
The food was ok this time. Would have liked more shrimp options. They removed some options from their menu, which was disappointing as i was looking forward to the shrimp ceviche.
Pleasant, not too noisy, great menu selection. And even a nice selection of sherries!
Excellent food, good cocktails. It is so loud that it is hard to have a conversation with your dinner guest. Especially hard for elderly people with hearing issues.
Good food, good service
Love it. Have eaten there many times. When quieter area requested, hostess was happy to oblige.
Waiter, Victor, was wonderful--helpful, efficient, thoughtful. He gets six stars!
We had a last minute cancellation elsewhere so we decided to try Cascal finally. Very glad we did and enjoyed the tapas, particularly the wild mushroom epinadas and braised short ribs. Also enjoyed our server Ivan (hope that’s spelled correctly!)
Great food options
My table staff ask about anything else? do you need something? even I ask to him I will let you know if we need something. Sometimes too much asking can be bothered our converstation. I wish proper service is required and trained. Everything is prefect except this. Thanks!
Tables are too close to each other, you can overhear everyone's conversation while trying to have one with your partner. Overall, food, drinks and service are always good. Cascal is our go to place for a Friday night. 👍👍😁😁
Having been here multiple times now, I continue to enjoy Cascal. The service is consistently good and the food is always tasty. I enjoyed the lamb chops, which were perfectly cooked, the Brussel sprouts, which were a healthy portion and full of flavor and the gorditas, which were excellent in both size and flavor. I plan to continue to go to Cascal for an enjoyable night out.
Our first visit was very nice. The Spanish cuisine was a little out of our comfort zone but our waiter was patient with us. The tapas sampler was fine for us but we wished there had been a simple green salad to go with it. The recommended wine was very nice but the price by the glass was a little steep. We'd go back next time for the piella; and get the wine by the bottle.
Server only checked in once, took awhile to get take away boxes and check. Food lacked in flavor
We love going there once in a while, quite a few of my friends, either for Happy Hour or before a show at the nearby CPA MTV. Always good food, nice friendly wait staff, sometimes a little too energetic, ie noisy, but our waiter was kind enough to turn down the extra loud music right away. I might be getting old that I don't like loud speakers or loud music, but definitely not a combination!
The food Nd service are always good. This time however we got seated near a very large group that were loud!
Paella is always delicious, and I like the variety of tapas.
Wonderful meal, great service and live salsa music. My only complaint is that I was a bit disappointment with the dessert menu.
I like the place, especially the music on Friday night.
Cascal is one of our favorite our go-to restaurants for dinner and special occasions. It has never disappointed! Very much worth the drive from South San Jose.
The food was a joke they offer roasted brussel sprouts they were Deep Fried the meatballs were far from Morocco the flavor on the menu the sizzling shrimp were oily you get bread when you sit down that’s Stale. Questioned the manager all he said was sorry zero customer service but the is very busy.
We had several shared Tapas and all of them were really good. We left happy and full!
Food & service was great! I always love the fun environment.
Cascal describes itself as a tapas restaurant, which I think is not really accurate. To me, tapas means small plates. Cascal’s “tapas” are larger plates with higher prices. This really inhibits you from sampling a number of different dishes, which is what real tapas dining is all about. I could forgive the false advertising if the food was great. Unfortunately, I think the tastes of the dishes we tried were okay to mediocre.
