We used to go to Casablanca alot when we lived in So. Cal. We took friends and family there as well. The food was always consistently good and the choices were varied. We tried everything from the hummus and garlic spread appetizers to the lamp/chicken and beef. Everyone at our table on every trip, raved about the quality and taste... More

The food is over priced and the place is not that great as to service and atmosphere. There are just better places serving the same thing within the same area.

Casablanca is hands-down the worst restaurant in Claremont--I'm surprised that it even has an "A" with sanitation. If you ever do go, just stay away from the frog legs--those are what made me sick. Stay away from Casablanca!

Before going here, I read the reviews and really debated if this is where I wanted to go on one of my few date nights with my wife. I read how the service was not up to par and it was a bit pricey. But let me tell you that my experience was just the opposite. From the moment we... More

Home of The Claremont Colleges, this is a great spot to find a variety of wonderful little restaurants. Some are tucked away into nooks and crannies. They are scattered throughout Claremont Village. I love spice! That's why this restaurant is one of my local favorites. All "Mediterranean Restaurnant's" are not the same. Some over or under season their food. Here,... More

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

Went there for lunch with my wife. Food was excellent, prep time was very reasonable and the waiter motivated. Best restaurant in town.
