Cascal Ratings and Reviews
There was little attention paid to us, and all the food servers could do was run past us and just "dump" the plate at our table. Very, very disappointing considering it was an Anniversary dinner. Would not recommend unless you are in for a very fast, rushed meal. We got the check and the desert menu thrown at us at the same time - just really aweful.
My wife, son and I have been here for dinner many times, and it's always been great. Dinner this last Saturday was even better than I remembered, as we ordered tapas-style and shared several amazing dishes. Service was friendly and prompt, and we had a wonderful experience. I'm not a big review person, as many people now a days seem intent on bashing restaurants for small petty things, but these guys deserve a top review and I'm happy to give it.
Ivan took great care of us. We often order an off menu chicken paella which they are able to accommodate effortlessly. Not an inexpensive place, but the food and ambiance always make for a great evening. We always book using Open Table and are seated seamlessly.
On this occasion, we chose Cascal because the food, ambience & service were very good on our first visit, and the noise level was mild. This time, it was VERY loud -- hard on seniors --, but otherwise still excellent. The tapas sampler platter is delicious, and ample for three. The bartender was obliging and drinks were very good.
We will gladly return to Cascal.
A friend recommended me this place and I really liked it. The food is so good, I tried the albondigas and they were tasty.
We were 10 people and when we arrived at 8 pm in Friday it was perfect for conversation, but later around 9 pm the live salsa music started and it was difficult for us to talk as we were next to the group. I do like live salsa music but in this occasion I was planning to talk with my friends, so it was my mistake not to investigate if there was live music. I guess it is only in Fridays and Saturdays but not sure. I just mention it in case you want to call and ask. The place is big and there is outdoor sitting so you can just sit far away in case you want to have a nice conversation.
There are so many great things about Cascal. The location, the crowd, the ambiance, the service, the tapas. For this particular occasion I went there for the paella however, and I was a little displeased. It was fine, but didn't seem to have as much care as everyrhing else. I would highly recommend Cascal, but unfortunately, I would also recommend avoiding the paella.
Cascal is a good choice for a good meal with a lot of variety. They have good seafood, steak, pork and vegetarian selections (not necessarily vegan) asTapas style food servings so they are great for sharing. They also have a good bar that serves traditional Spanish drinks, as well as a full range of wines, beers and spirits. One of my favorite restaurants!
Great ambiance here and perfect for grabbing drinks with friends after dinner in downtown Mountain View or grabbing dinner and drinks here. Regularly live music will be found here with tasty authentic dishes. Sampler for appetizers is a must if your a first timer and the sangria pairs perfectly. I’ll return for sure
Great selection of foods to share. 4 of us ate outside on a beautiful evening. While the tables were full, the outside noise level was surprisingly quiet. Easy conversation and fun people watching. We tried the fried olives, and they were surprisingly good! The roasted brussel sprouts are scrumptious. The 3 meat churrasco dish was also a favorite. The ceviche was very fresh and light. Great evening with good friends and a wonderful meal!
Always an interesting menu of unusual, tasty small plates that are great fun to share. Warm decor, high-energy (bordering on frantic) vibe. Used to feel like wait staff was overloaded and service slow, but this time it was super quick and attentive even though the place was packed. Keep it up!
I have celiac and Cascal has lots of gf selections and they seem to understand cross contamination. Our waiter was excellent. I prefer sitting outside as it's very noisy inside but the wait was too long even with a reservation. If you want a quiet restaurant I don't recommend this or come early or late. The decor inside is charming. It seems they could put some noise canceling baffles or something on the ceiling.
