    service was good. Food was salty, not really Spanish tepas, more like southern American food. TOO noisy, cannot have any conversation.

    Food is always great here and so is the ambiance. What’s up with the 5% addition to EVERY check to support living wages in the Bay Area? The place us not cheap and patrons already add 20% tip, sometimes more if added to post tax bill. Isn’t the employer expected to pay their staff a decent salary?

    Food and service are always top notch at Cascal and this visit was no exception. I usually get seafood or paella but tried the lamb chops for the first time and they were FANTASTIC! Highly recommend with a glass of the Spanish Tempranillo if you're feeling like red wine.

    Made a point of dining here again on my first visit to the area in four years. Still outstanding. Can't wait for my next visit so I can dine there again! Try the paella, the tapas sampler, and then whatever individual items catch your fancy, it's all excellent. Prefer the red sangria to others.

    Paella was more like Risotto. Anyone who has had real Paella would agree. Nobody checked on us after they dropped the food. Everything else we ordered was just OK. I had very high hopes trying this place for the first time but I won’t be going back. It’s overrated.

    Drinks were great, service nonexistent. Ordered Ceviche, Paella, and Octopus- all blank and absent of seasoning(other reviews mentioned salt issues- they were right). Extremely disappointing for the price of the food. Do not recommend and will not be back.
