I was very disappointed in the service. We sat for over 10 min without even being offered a glass of water. We actually got up to leave the restaurant until we were asked to stay. We hesitantly returned to our seats. Food was OK but over priced.
We will not be returning nor will we recommend this restaurant to our friends.

Another great brunch at Cassis. Makes me feel like I'm sitting in a bistro in NYC's TriBeca area, but with a southern twist. Beet salad one of the best appetizers I have anywhere. Classic quiche was good but a very small portion given the price. Spouse enjoyed his Crab Benedict but felt there should be cheese IN the cheesy grits, not just sprinkled on top.

I made a reservation for a date. They gave us a perfect, romantic corner booth spot. The new menu is amazing and a great improvement! We loved the roasted beet salad and the scallops. The service was excellent and the cocktails were lovely.

My friend and I decided to try Cassis for a nice business meal, mainly because of the location and varied menu. We were promptly greeted by the hostess and taken to our table and then we had the pleasure of having Hassan assigned as our server and, I have to say, his people and customer service skills are second to none! The food and drinks were delicious and so was the restaurant, but Hassan made the experience unique and memorable. He’s the nicest server I’ve ever had, quite the conversationalist and overall and amazing human being. My friend Gabriella and I will definitely be back to Cassis and Hassan has a lot to do with it. Thank you Cassis for the great food and drinks (the Cassis Royal... Yum!) and thank you Hassan for treating us as friends - we left leaving like we’ve known you for a long time and look forward to seeing you again in January. I definitely hope Cassis knows how lucky they are to have Hassan. The macarons were excellent, too... I love that they have bite-size desserts!

We had reservations so we were seated immediately. Service was a bit slow. We waited a while before waiter came to our table. However, the food made up for that once we received it. Food was very good, well portioned, tasty and the presentation was good. We would eat there again and recommend to friends.

Cassis has always been inconsistent and that continues to be the case. The veggie meatball sandwich used to be juicy and delicious but this time is was a much smaller portion and the meatballs were dry and uninteresting. We had to order a side of marinara sauce because there was virtually none on it, even though it is described as such. My salad was fair and the steak tips on it were tasty and cooked medium rare as requested. Service is ALWAYS slow here which is frustrating - do the servers have too many tables to handle? It's a great location, there are some interesting menu items, and we keep going back every so often hoping that they have gotten their act together, but I don't think we'll be going back.

I have been to Cassis American Brasserie a number of times. It's never been disappointing and you can always count on great service and great food. Wine list is good and prices are reasonable for a restaurant. The servers are always great and interact well with everybody, not robots! Because Cassis has a lot of outdoor tables when we want to meet up in downtown and sit outside it's a no brainer. You will also get a great meal!

 (New Orleans)·Dined on November 23, 2017

Let me preface this by saying we dined there on Thanksgiving day and it was very busy. I had made a reservation for 9 people and we ended up with only 7 as someone was ill and couldn't make it. They put us in their party room which I assume was because we were a rather large party and maybe that is standard procedure. The room was isolated from the rest of the restaurant so while it was very quiet is was a pretty boring atmosphere and you don't get any of the Brasserie vibe in that room. We would have preferred to be in the main dining area even though it did seem quite loud, we missed out on some ambiance. The room was also very cold with air conditioning, although we did ask and they turned it off after we had been there awhile. The food was mostly good, about half of our party did not really like their meal (we ordered off of the regular menu) and the other half did. The bar drinks were very good. The main problem was the service. I realize it was Thanksgiving and they were busy and being in a room seemed liked we got the out of sight out of mind service. Initially we were in there for at least 10 minutes before anyone even came by to take drink orders. After that it was a continuation of extremely slow service. We were there for 2 hours. So honestly I am not sure I can recommend. It was pretty pricey for OK food and terrible service.

OH my goodness! Thanksgiving dinner, and it was the pits. The portions were mostly small but very inconsistent, everything was way too salty, and it took about 50 minutes to get our first course (small bowls of salty lobster bisque; filled only 1/3 full and not a single piece of lobster to be found). It was another hour before we got our turkey. I'm not trying to be mean, just honest, when I say that the next day, still craving turkey, I microwaved a Nutrisystem turkey dinner, and had more food and it was better. Need I say more? We've been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it. What happened?

Cassis is one of my favorite restaurants. This was my third Thanksgiving dinner at Cassis and the first two were wonderful. This year, the quality was not as good. The lobster bisque,in the past, had bits of lobster in it. This time there was none and it seemed more like thickeners. The turkey was a bit dry with no gravy. I had to use the cranberry sauce for the dryness. The pumpkin cheesecake in the past was fantastic. This time it was a cube from a sheet cake and was bland. The ravioli and the side dishes were still good.

We were seated outside next to the entrance where they hung a menu. So everyone was looking over our table. We were there for a thanksgiving dinner. We finally was able to move our table and it took 22 minutes for someone to come over to our table. The food was no better than cafeteria food and it was very very expensive. After our plate was cleared it took 30 more minutes for our dessert which we had already paid for... I would not recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for listening...

Thanksgiving dinner -
Waiter - did a great job and was very attentive.
Food - I could not cut my spinach, even with my steak knife, plus it was mostly stems, steak was just OK. My son ordered the Thanksgiving special and the stuffing and spinach were completely awful, turkey was just OK.
Price - bill was over $100 for 2 people for food that was below sub-par!
Atmosphere - great location, interior and exterior are a great spot but am not interested in coming back as the food was not very good and pricey.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner. Our table was in a corner by a window. Not a bad location, but easily ignored. Our water glasses were never refilled. The Thanksgiving special meal was just OK. Stuffing was advertised as part of the meal, but wasn't on the plate, so we had to find the nearest wait staff to take care of it. Our designated server was friendly, just inattentive. Not a special holiday experience that we had hoped for.

Our first experience was Thanksgiving. Although we loved the location, the Thanksgiving menu was mediocre. The salad was wilted. The turkey was kind of dry and the side dishes were lukewarm. You can imagine, we thought the meal was overpriced.
We are planning on trying it again for lunch though.
I noticed the food looked really good when our neighbors at the next table ordered off the regular menu - it looked fresh while ours looked kind of, um, old. Also, we stopped by the bakery and brought a couple of croissants for breakfast the next day - they were really good.
So, we will be back. We probably won’t be back for another holiday meal though.

We decided to eat out for Thanksgiving since there were only a few of us and it turned out to be a nice adventure. The traditional turkey dinner was excellent and enjoyed by all. The Poutine appetizer was terrific and a nice treat. This will go into our date night rotation.

Unfortunately, this was a poor decision on my part. My husband and I decided not to cook for Thanksgiving as it would just be us and our young daughters and we couldn't be with our extended family out of town. So I looked for a restaurant to make reservations. I have eaten at Cassis before and always had a great experience. I saw they had a Thanksgiving pre fixe and thought it would be fun to try. We were seated outside and it had rained earlier in the day so the table and our chairs were wet and the awning kept dripping on us. This was totally ok and not the restaurant's fault but no one cleaned the table or replaced our wet napkins after I asked. After sitting for over ten minutes from when we first started counting, I asked two separate servers if they knew who our server was. He finally came and without a greeting asked if we were ready to order? So we were kind of confused and ordered our drinks and he said "But you still need a minute for food?" and we were even more confused by his attitude like did he wait to serve us til he thought we'd order everything in one go? When he brought my drink and my daughter's drink both glasses were dirty. I asked the server to replace it and he said "Why? Is it dirty?" And I showed him and he said "Wow, guess I need start washing the dishes too!" The meal was especially poor, the service continued to be poor, and we skipped dessert and asked for our check after waiting again for over ten minutes to see anyone. I get that holidays are tough and that staff are not thrilled with being there. But it was a really disappointing experience and an expensive outing for it to be so poor. I will not be going back to Cassis.

Disappointing. We have donned here several times before and enjoyed our meals and service but this past Saturday was such a disappointment that I am not sure we will be back especially since the are so many other good restaurants in the area. Our food was mediocre at best after a long wait. Our waiter was too busy with other tables to make sure our drinks and food waste delivered on time and correctly ( they weren't). For over $300 for 4 of us, it was not worth it.

The place is beautiful inside and out. The staff is friendly and attentive. The lunch and breakfast menus are very good. I only down rate Cassis because of their dinner menu. The food is just average and hence overpriced. I would stick to lunch or breakfast. They have a great bakery next door with fantastic bread and small desserts. I ordered a Napoleon the last time I was there and it was beyond perfect. I really wish they would up their game on the dinner menu.

I have been to Cassis numerous times over the past couple of years. I noticed some ratings have dropped to 3.5. Friday evening 6 family members from around the state met for a dinner. The hostess, Manda was really charming, sat us right away. The waiter was a different story, disappearing for 10 minutes or more many times. We were not in a hurry at all but dinner lasted over two hours. The last 30 minutes a wind came up and the temperature dropped so we wanted to get out of there but our waiter was no where to be found. I went inside looking for him and he eventually showed up. Other wait staff was coming and going at tables around us...very frustrating. Prices seem to have increased rather dramatically. The cheapest chardonnay on the wine list that I saw was $52.

We were in town for a conference and the hotel concierge recommended Cassis for brunch. I went with several colleagues and we were all pleased with the food, drinks and service. Our server, Olga, was wonderful and so personable. The menu has many great food and drink options, so you won't have trouble finding something you will like. I would highly recommend Cassis and will definitely return on my next visit to St. Pete.
