The Cassidy Bar + Kitchen
We are kid friendly and weather permitting, dog friendly as well!
Great new restaurant/bar. We went on a Saturday afternoon it was quiet but busy. Crab cake with eggs was very delicious and great drinks of Prosecco and Cointreau and cranberry. We will return.
We heard that it’s very busy and very noisy on Saturday nights. Was great on a Saturday afternoon.
This was our first time at this establishment which was very busy on a Saturday night, with a good vibe, moderate noise. Tables was spaced well apart which is unusual but welcome.
Menu is varied, something for everyone including vegetarians. Lots of choices in small plates and traditional entrees.
Open kitchen was fun to watch; service was good particularly wait staff but assistants who brought food to table were not able to answer simple question (which is split pea soup and which mushroom bisque?) and need further training.
All dishes were nicely presented and very tasty; portions were ample.
They do charge extra for bread... needs to be clear.
All in all a great addition to Maplewood and NJ food scene.
Keep up he good work
Delicious food, good service but it got very busy and we saw less and less of Benjamin our waiter. Unfortunately he forgot to put in our dessert order and we had to miss out on the mini brownie sundae so we could still catch our movie. He was very apologetic, completely owned it. Couldn’t be mad or upset and really my fat stomach did not need it — he did us a favor, LOL. Recommend without any hesitation!!
Great service and delicious food. But much too noisy.
Go for drinks, but not for the food. Cocktails are very good, and they always have a good beer selection. However, food is outrageously overpriced for what they serve. There are a couple of tasty things, but the majority of the menu simply isn’t good.
Great atmosphere, decent food. Good for group cocktails & dinner. There seemed to be some hiccups in the overall running of the restaurant. Our waiter was great & tried to compensate for the delays.
This place has been on my radar for about 6 months and it didn't fail to disappoint. The food was exquisite and you get the feeling you are in a Michelin star restaurant
Hated the hostess. She tried to force us to sit at a table by the noisy kitchen and when I said something like “may I sit elsewhere more quiet” she said she had “other reservations” as if they were more important than my reservation???
But after speaking with the manager, he gave us a great table and the waiter was excellent, James. He knew the menu inside and out and alll of the drinks made excellent suggestions, great conversation and salvaged the whole night.
We are regulars at the Gladstone Tavern and the Cassidy was a beautiful expansion. Love the seasonal menu love the ambiance and the meal was divine !
Will be back !!
Everything was very good!! Great neighborhood place!
This is a welcome addition to Maplewood. Enjoyed the duck, duck, duck appetizer. However the short ribs ravioli was super al debate. The speciality cocktails tend to be a little tart for my taste.
We love Cassidy, it’s always just a little loud
We had lunch here with our daughter who works nearby. The food and service were very good. Interesting menu with healthy choices.
Cassidy is getting better like aging wine. The portion sizes are more generous than when they first opened. The waitstaff is great and attentive. This is on its way to becoming a neighborhood gem
dinner for 3 last friday nite. food was very good, all were pleased. service was excellent and it was quiet as we had the booth all the way in the back.
Service was excellent and the staff was attentive without being overbearing. All my guests were pleased with their meals.
Will definitely be back.
We had a nice night. Buffalo cauliflower was tasty. Whole fish was cooked nicely but accompaniments were not great including unevenly cooked potatoes. Shrimp pasta dish was ok - fettuccine clumped together as though not stirred while cooking, shrimp a little over cooked, but tomatoes and broccoli rabe good. Cocktails were interesting. Our server was very pleasant. The bar space is comfortable and was busy but not overcrowded on a Saturday night. I would go back happily for drinks and snacks but wouldn’t expect a killer meal.
We had a great experience at Cassidy. The service was outstanding.
I’ve been to the restaurant twice. I loved the food and the ambiance and will definitely be back again. My only complaint is I don’t like being sat right in front of the kitchen. The first time I went we were sat in front of the kitchen and ended up moving to the bar. The second time the same thing happened but there was no room to move. While I do appreciate who makes my food I do not want to watch it happen while I’m trying to have a quiet meal with my husband. The noise in the kitchen was distracting and it was so bright. We did however, love our meals and dessert! Our waiter was also superb. I will be back but I will make sure to call ahead for a booth seat in the bar area.?
Food was very good with creative combinations. Two in my party had the brisket, which they found good but not he best they have had. The Duck confit was excellent with very good and complementary vegetables. The bar and beer choices were a plus, but there was no escape from the bar based cacophony.
We truly enjoyed our meal there. Duck and pork chops were incredible. The place has trendy/NYC feel. We will certainly be back. Also, the hostess was very attentive and sat us in a booth next to the window - just like I asked on the open table. Thank you!
Great food and drinks! What a find! The menu has a lot of items to choose from and so much of the food and drink are made fresh on premises. We also had a larger party and the wait staff was really attentive and great. We will definitely be back there soon.
Totally lovely experience. Had the Crab Cakes Benedict. OMG so good, just like I had on the coast in South Carolina, fresh and lots of crab not filler. Delicious Bloody Mary. My friend had the hamburger and raved however the fried potatoes are to die for, tooo delicious.
Excellent crowd pleaser-items plus unique/memorable menu options. Attentive staff. Not easy to get a great table still highly recommend for locals, visits, dinners or drinks..their bartenders are awesome!! Kitchen open later than most in the hood too
good food - but service continues to plague the dining experience at Cassidy. The 1.5 hour wait time for food is simply unacceptable.
We had a great time. The service, food and the atmosphere were great!
