Delicious Mediterranean food that's flavored with herbs and spices, plus a very decorative setting. And the price is surprisingly affordable - we expected to pay more. The one waitress was busy training a new server so our service was on the slow side.

I really like Kasbah, but unfortunately this experience left me disappointed. The food was great, but the service was really unacceptable. Having served for years, I try to be understanding and accommodating, as I know things can get overwhelming and crazy, but being rude isn’t necessary.
We decided as a group to share plates and some of the items were forgotten, no big deal, so we ended up ordering one more dish. We were all finished and the wait for the last dish was really long. After asking our waitress if she’d put it in, she explained it would be a few more minutes. At that point, they’d cleared all of our other plates and it really wasn’t worth an additional wait. We asked if we could just cancel it (although I think she might have forgotten to put it in) and that’s when her irritation started. She did cancel it and came right back and silently threw a check on the table, pretty much abruptly ending our experience. It happened to be my birthday (which is why I brought a party of 9) and my mom explained that there was a dessert in the back. The waitress came back with the box and silently set it on the table. She ran the credit card and put that down. Not a mention of thank you and more of a feeling of “get the hell out”.
There are too many great restaurants that offer great food and service, so despite the good food, I won’t be back.

Completely underwhelming. Food was lacking flavor, service was too relaxed had to ask for water, tea refill and pita bread twice after the server said he was going to bring it by. It was not busy at all. Watched people walk out due to no host staff. Ambiance was very dark, reason why you ask??? The overall state of the restaurant is in complete disrepair. Very disheveled, unorganized and mismanaged. This place has a lot of potential but the owners need to put some $$$ into redecorating and supporting a manager to keep it clean and up to date.

It was a rainy day in Valentine’s day! The place was cozy with the perfect Ambience for the ocasión, they bring you the food in a moderate time, the amount of food it’s perfect to share and the Mixed of flavors are amazing!
The ambience was so good with middle eastern tuns that go perfect with the type of food you are eating, they have also a belly dancer that goes from table to table and put a good show, that was pretty cool!

Food and drinks were amazing. Only ding was that our waitress ignored us the whole night. I had to call or physically walk up to her to get any service. Great restaurant but this particular waitress gave no service, especially when it was a relative slow night. Will go back again.

Great place with wonderful food and ambiance that is quite romantic and cozy, especially if seated on the wall seats with cushions. Service was fast and our server was very pleasant. The only disappointment of the evening was that the belly dancers were not there during our visit (7-8:20ish) and we were told that they can show up around 9 pm or later as they sort of have their own schedule.

We are big fans of Kasbah. We have found them to have consistently delicious food. They are especially good with seasonings. They represent a broad spectrum of Middle Eastern food. For the DineDowntown week they always add something very special to the menu. It might be a good idea to come close to the time they open because they can be very busy. And they can stay busy even late night. The atmosphere is incredibly relaxing and that vibe sets the tone for enjoying and not rushing through meals.

I reserved a table for a double birthday celebration of my friends. We were seated promptly. The place was lively. There was a belly dancer performing which was entertaining. They serve Mediterranean food which is very good and tasty and reasonably priced. My only disappointment is that the service was not consistent. One of the server was very friendly engaging and attentive but the other one was totally opposite.
