The has to be the very best up-scale Mexican restaurant on the North Shore. Don't miss it if you like Mexican food. Everything is fresh and delicious.

I eat a lot of Mexican and South American food. In every respect this place was outstanding. My entire party felt as I did- authentic high quality Mexican in a pleasant warm setting at very reasonable prices!

I will still recommend, but this was our worst experience. We have been several times, but brought some first timers who will not be back. Food came out very slow (restaurant was NOT crowded) and service was non-attentive.

The food was very good. It’s typically tasty, fresh Mexican. We expected to a dining experience and food with a more Jewish flare.

Food and service were very good. Margaritas were some of the best we have ever had.
Mamas enchiladas verdes with chicken are 4, no sides like rice, it's filling though.
Excellent guacamole and the salsa was really special, not to hot, with an very good flavor, some of the best!

Despite having made a reservation well in advance via Open Table, we still had to wait 20+ minutes to be seated. Our waiter was big on promises (to being our drinks, bring our dessert, and bring the check) but slow on delivering on those promises. Grrr!

Food was good - Salmon Goat Cheese Burrito was unique and fresh but the service was questionable. Also...we were seated near the kitchen area and every time an employee "shook" open a large paper bag for carryout orders, it sounded like a gunshot. Not very calming or enjoyable.

Isaac & Moishe are the most genuine hosts on the North Shore. They are kind, thoughtful and caring toward every customer that walks in, regular or first-timer. The food is solid Mexican, and the chefs are very accommodating. Love it - love them.

Grossly understaffed. Our waitress disappeared for 45 minutes after we finished our meal. Had to get a dessert menu from another waitress. 20 minutes later, nobody came around to take our order. In the meantime, there's an entrance full of people with reservations who cannot get seated. Finally had to get up and ask someone to bring our check because it didn't look like anyone was coming to our table. This is the second time we're having a poor experience here. Will not be coming back or recommending this place to anyone. And this was our lunchtime favorite! :-(

We have been long time fans of "Casa" due to the food and, of course, the warm wait staff (including Moishe). This time we brought some friends who had a taste for good Mexican food. We were delighted that they were delighted!! We always enjoy one of the salmon entrees, either the burrito or the enchaladas. Our friends did as well, and one had the chile relleno which he devoured. So...kudos in order, and we'll see you soon!

We were the only group there at 5 and had. Another event at 6:30 2 miles away . We were late. The service was awful b cause the staff was eating their dinner in the main room. We couldn’t order our drinks or even get a menu without asking multiple times I have been to this restaurant before and was very disappointed .

The breakfast was fabulous. I had blueberry blintzes that were fresh and delicious. They had a fresh blueberry sauce mixed with fresh blueberries on top and two perfectly poached eggs. Service was wonderful the meal was wonderful. I’m rather picky about my coffee but I thought I would try a cup of coffee and it was fabulous. I’m not really a flavored coffee person I believe this had some cinnamon in it but it was perfect. Very much enjoyed eating here.

We ate outside, with beautiful flowers surrounding. Unfortunately, there were many flies and bugs. Perhaps citronella candles on the tables would help.

Great outdoor dining a short walk from where we live. Friendly service. Great food choices that are as close to authentic Mexican as you can get outside of Mexico. Fabulous Margaritas and Mojitos. Decent choice of beers. is will be a regular mid week dinner spot for us.

Even in winter, there is plenty of parking and the interior is nice.

We used to love this place. Were there several weeks ago and it was great. This time, we had the worst server I have ever had. Waited forever for our dinner. Everyone around us was served. When we asked for the check she brought both food and checks to everyone but it. We finally had to ask again and it was not fast. Not running back. It’s a shame.
