The cuisine is presented in a fashion that enhances it's surroundings and is considered by culinary experts to be among the top three cuisines worldwide.

Very good service and delicious food. The “Tour of Morocco” multi-course meal is a must to experience a nice variety of foods in one evening. This was my favourite meal of the year for sure.

Probably won't be back. The food was okay, but not as good as it used to be. I missed the bold Moroccan flavours. Decent portion sizes, but just kinda bland and boring.

Always can count on a great dining experience. I usually dine here by myself once a month or sometimes for takeout. Otherwise I enjoy bringing friends here! These are some family friends from out of town. Food is always fresh and you get to support local. Really like that the owner is very hard working. Great guy! Great food!

One of the coolest restaurants I've seen in Calgary. The owner is super nice and friendly. The ambience is beyond words. I literally forgot I was in Calgary. It felt like I was in Morocco having dinner! Amazing!

It’s a beautiful set up for intimate dining. Decor and furnishings are amazing and very reminiscent of Morocco. Food and service were outstanding. There is something for everybody on the menu, which has amazing flavours and combinations of fresh ingredients. Awesome freshly brewed mint tea to finish off! We stayed almost an hour past closing time and we didn’t even realize - more importantly, they didn’t tell us or rush us. Will definitely go back here!

This was our first dining experience at Casbah, we loved everything we ate, so flavourful. The service on the other hand was not up to our expectations. I believe this restaurant like so many are short staffed. Our waiter and very nice gentleman seemed to be working the majority of the restaurant until another server came on. We felt either rushed or ignored. Would we recommend the Casbah Restaurant, yes the food is outstanding.

This was an AMAZING experience! We've missed travelling and this felt like we weren't in Calgary, but in Morocco. The staff are super friendly, the food was delicious, and the decor and atmosphere was authentic. We felt we were immersed in a true Moroccan cultural experience.

Although the ambiance is beautiful, the food is very expensive, especially the appetizer's prices are high and the serving size is small.

Main dishes were ok.

This is a beautiful restaurant. I'd go here for the decor alone. The food is also fantastic. Delicious flavors and good prices. Service has always been good. The owner has always been our server and he provides good insight into the food and culture of Morocco. A must visit for any occasion. My 3 year old enjoyed the food and ambiance as well.

It’s always a delight of the senses eating at the Casbah. The ambience, decor, food and wine pairing is outstanding. I’m not very experimental with food but their menu has a lot of delicious options for all palettes. You can just sit there and admire the attention taken to their decor for an hour. Best couscous ever and of course the mint tea and baklava is a perfect finish.
