I rarely write reviews but it must be noted that Cassis was highly understaffed for a Sunday evening. After sitting at the table for 1 hour, we finally received our beverages. Food was to be expected from a large restaurant - very good but not excellent. Despite the hiccups, it's still a great choice for French dining....now please hire some skilled staff!

Love this place but service was off tonight. Took forever to get entrees. And once 2 of the 3 entrees were finally served, the third entree for the third diner was served a good 10 minutes later.

Server, Isabella, was fabulous. She was personable, polite, prompt, attentive, and spot on with recommendations. We'd hire her right away...if we still had a restaurant. A pleasure!

Food and the restaurant are always enjoyable,

I would not recommend this restaurant. As nice as the staff was is as bad as the food was. Anything I wanted to eat was sold out. Was so hard to get a dish that I was interested to eat and was not sold out.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit. We apologize that the items you were interested in were not available at the time of your visit. Due to the high volume of guests on Thanksgiving and the lack of availability in specific ingredients, we did unfortunately run out of some of our most popular menu items. We hope that you will be back in the future to try some of the items you wanted.

Our waiter was rude and hardly ever came to the table. He took over 15 minutes to come to the table and bring water, causing another waitress to stop by and ask if we were helped yet. We were very close to the door and patrons kept backing up into our chair so we asked to move over a table and he said no. The table next to us sat empty the entire night. Disappointing service.
Food was good and came out hot and in timely manner.

Kitchen was extremely slow in getting out the food. Tables were also packed way too close to each other and could not carry on a conversation without hearing the other table’s conversation.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit. Due to high volumes on the weekends, our kitchen tries their hardest to get the food out in a timely manner. Regarding the closeness of the tables, your concerns have been brought to the attention of management team. We hope you will be back to try out some of our new and revamped menu items!

We went to Cassis for a special occasion- my birthday.
I called the place earlier to ask if they had any special thing like a free dessert with a candle. They told me that they do, but if it is exact the date they were giving a free entrée upon checking an ID.
The hostess set us, greeted me with "Happy birthday" and told me to show my ID to the waiter. Waiter's reaction was humiliating. He said, "What? No ma'am!" and he was laughing. Would've been better if he was a bit more courteous and said something like, "My apologies, sounds like somebody made a mistake, let me double check, sorry".
Anyways, he also had a problem with taking the order, most of the evening looked overwhelmed, and he was not very familiar with the menu. In fact, later he told me to go to the bakery (which was next to the restaurant) to check the desserts and come back and tell him what I want to order.
About the food: wine and appetizer(Trio of dip) were O.K. Actually, wine was good, but this appetizer didn't impress me at all.
From the other hand, the two entrees- Bouillabaisse and 14oz NY Strip Steak were phenomenal-Congratulations to the Chef!!!
Even dough it took forever I got a candle on the dessert I ordered. :)
I can't comment the overall value, because the waiter asked my husband to sign electronically and we didn't get any receipt.
As I know my husband he has always been giving generous tips to the waiters, no matter their service. For me service matters- especially on my birthday! If I had to pay the bill that night maybe I would've not give this waiter (by the way, his name was Will) a tip!
Beautiful location, good food and mediocre service = Total 3/of 5.

Cassis provides a french bistro atmosphere with some flavorful dishes. Staff is attentive and friendly. My wife had the lamb chops and they were cooked to perfection. My friend had the Grouper and the portion was substantial and he said well prepared. I had the bouillabaisse which was served with what seemed like the equivalent of three full cut up potatoes...way too many. The broth was a bit too delicate for the shellfish and needed more bite with either additional spice or thickening.

This is the first bad review and second poor experience at Cassis. I dine there a few times every year and the ast time it was in July. The menu has dropped the steak tartare, which was my staple and delicious :( I had the tuna tartare which for the first time was smothered in spicy mayo sauce, ruining it. My friend's food was good, but a restaurant that starts serving pasta in a bowl as a side to the meal has already dropped points in my esteem. Pasta is a dish in itself...not a side in a non family restaurant.
The worst was this -- the server was not attentitive. She was absent for long periods of time and so I had to ask another person in the wait staff for her to bring us another glass of wine.
At the end, my friend tipped her 10%. The server came back to complain about the tip!! Yes, she shamed my friend asking if he meant to tip her so little. This is so so wrong -- tips are not mandatory, and certainly not for poor service. We left without adding to the tip, and I hope th emanager reads this.

It took almost 15 minutes before our server even greeted us. I ordered steak frite well and received a pink steak and cold fries. We decided to box up our food and leave as the service was horrible. It appeared the focus was mainly on serving the 7 top behind us.

Will never patronize here again for the price of the food it should taste much better than it was.

We sat outside, so there was a moderate street noise. Our waiter was very attentive
and food was served promptly, though we had to ask for bread to be served.
There was a lot of big, black flies trying to get to our food, so we had to swat at them constantly. Other than that, a pretty good experience...
