Had a wonderful dinner on the patio and the service was superb. The lamb shank was tender and falling off the bone and the sangria was delicious

We went here to celebrate the graduation of my daughter from CMU. We had a great time, great food and service. Reasonable prices given the quality of the food and presentation. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely restaurant. Everything works well here. The food is excellent, the service is wonderful, and the overall ambience is delightful. We went on a very busy Saturday night (graduations from several area colleges) and the place was packed. We were lucky to have gotten a reservation at the last minute. As a starter, I ordered veal and... More

The atmosphere of Casbah is cool, it has an ethnic vibe with a modern edge. The muhammara dip and the cheese tasting plate were delicious. The pappardelle with trumpet mushrooms was amazing, as well as the gnocchi with duck confit and burrata cheese. Desserts were the passion feuille and the butterscotch pot de creme. Both were beyond yummy!

Met a friend here on a Monday night. It filled up before 8pm. Besides good company, the best part was the waiter, Seth. I messed up, should have got the pork chop he swears by. I went with short rib ravioli. A little dry, probably just tonight. The beet salad was real good. And they serve Arsenal cider, my local... More

We never leave disappointed. Each appetizer, meal and dessert I have ever tried here is delicious. The staff is always extremely pleasant and willing to assist with any needs or questions you may have. We have brought many friends as well and they always share what a wonderful experience they had afterwards.

at 6:15 pm last night we decided to see if we could get a dinner time at Casbah. Well, we were lucky - we got one at 8:15. and ever luckier in that they had soft-shelled crabs as an appetizer - there's a small window/season when you can get them here. And they way Casbah prepares them is my favorite... More

Casbah was abuzz the night I took my good friend there to celebrate a special birthday milestone. Although the tables were placed relatively close together in some spots, as our table was, I was delighted to find that closeness did not infringe on our conversation and experience. The hostess and serving staff were delightful at all times which is very... More
