Took my son and a few of his friends to dinner here tonight. Food was okay. Service was just ok too. Brought appetizers one at a time and one entrée 10 minutes before the rest. Probably downgrading too much because of all the great places to eat in Claremont.

Im a huge fan of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine and have tried several in the surrounding area. Although this is a charming restaurant located in a trendy and historic part of town, Claremont Village, the food flavor and quality were below average and pricey. The restaurant is in an old refurbished packing house, now turned into an artsy contemporary shopping mall.... More

I recently visited my friends Reina and John in California and they took me to this restaurant. They ordered tabulah salad, humus, falafel and other entrees and I ordered salmon....just delicious! The entrees were hot and crispy. The salmon was out of this world....the pita bread and humus but the best part was the waiter, a gorgeous Lebanese...excellent service! I... More

Was there recently - a group of three - on a Thursday evening around 6 pm. We shared various dishes including hummus, lamb, and quail - all delicious and enough left over for me to enjoy at the airport before catching a plane the next day. My only criticism would be that the room can be quite noisy, probably because... More

The service was spotty. our server was hopefully new as she was unfamiliar with the menu. The food, while not spectacular, was good.

Throughout my four years at the Claremont colleges this has been my favorite place to go with friends and family. Family style portions and great food, Casablanca is perfect for large parties. The hummus is great and my personal favorite is the fatoosh salad.

When we went to this restaurant, which was virtually empty, we waited and waited to be seated. When we finally were seated we ordered the falafel side dish. It was so crispy...overcooked, that a knife could barely cut into it. The pita bread was stale and the olive oil dip lacked taste. The awful falafel came with a very small... More

Please stay away from this restaurant if you have food allergies! They not only brought me food I was allergic to (after a very specific discussion with the waiter/manager), but yelled at me for questioning the ingredients! They admitted the dish had the ingredient I had warned them about, then expected me to pay for the meal.
