I was at Cascal awhile back and a group of us shared a bunch of small plates. The menu has changed since then, couldn't find as many interesting choices. Mushroom empanadas were good, ordered the charcuterie board but it's really just a meat board- no cheese or bread/crackers to go with it.

Highly recommend tapas. It was fun to share 4 different ones and a dessert (2 people). All tapas were creative and delicious: corn poblano saute, wild mushroom empanadas, eggplant tian and beef short rib adobo. Nice ambience: palm tree, arches. Wait staff excellent.

Three is us really enjoyed our lunch at Cascal. There is inside or outside dining. The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. I had the cauliflower and kale soup, which was delicious but the portion could have been a bit bigger. My friends both had the shrimp tacos and liked their selection. The restaurant is in a great location at the corner of Castro and California - thus the name - with free parking close by.

Cascal continues to be top notch in Silicon Valley for authentic Spanish food. Services is excellent, and prices are reasonable. Very popular go-to restaurant.

Too loud on Saturday evening to have a conversation.

I've left many reviews for Cascal as I have been here on numerous occasions and I'm never disappointed. Cascal has delicious and interesting food. The drinks are plentiful and their are many options both alcoholic and not.
I hardly ever get to dessert (eyes bigger than stomach!) but when I do, it's worth it.

Lots of BIG groups, but they managed to bring out the food in a timely manner. My guest is GF and her shrimp came breaded despite a long previous conversation with the server. It was remedied quickly.

We had a bad Valentine's Day experience at Cascal. We had a late reservation (8:45) and when we arrived, the hostess told us they were running behind and they would text us when ready. My wife and I went to the bar and 30 minutes passed without a text. We went back to the hostess stand and apparently they forgot about us because we were seated right away.

Our waiter was inattentive and not personable. He offered no conversation or recommendation, but a short "What would you like?". When we were done eating, our empty plates sat on the table for 15 minutes before they were cleared. Needless to say we didn't stick around for dessert.

The food was bland and poorly presented. I will not be going back to Cascal.
