Friendly wait staff: food not great

The wait staff are lovely. They constantly check up on you, fill your water/iced tea glass and generally make you feel very welcome. There are large TV screens showing sports and old time TV shows. The Dukes of Hazzard were on when we visited! Sadly, the downside is the food. We've been there... read more

Now that my two daughters have graduated from Claremont, I'm going to miss this restaurant that was a must-go-to every time we visited. Hummus, fried cauliflower, greek salad, lamb kabobs. My mouth waters just thinking about it. And tasty and good sized martinis. Go. You'll be glad you did.

The service was so warm and personable. We were on a family outing and the staff was so attentive and friendly. Food was really good. I am not an expert in Mediterranean food but we had a wide sampling of appetizers and entrees and the entire group was pleased. We did have one expert at our table and he was... More

My friend took me to this restaurant for a birthday dinner . They truly have the best lamb chops. The servers are very nice and it's in the heart of Claremont. There's a parking structure nearby . This place also has an added flair, a belly dancer on certain days. :)

Our hotel was right across the street from the Casablanca so we we gave it a try one evening. Sat outside on a beautiful night. Staff was very friendly and helpful--we spent a fair amount of time talking with Walid, who was great. My wife and I both had the trout, which was excellent. Only caveat is that there were... More

The grilled lamb kabobs and chops are fantastic. Just make sure you don't over-indulge on the warm pita bread and garlic dip or humus before your entree arrives as the portions are generous. The owner and his staff are warm & friendly. We have been there for lunch and dinner and the food and service is consistently wonderful . It... More

Casablanca is in a great location in Claremont's Historic Packing House. We sat outside on the patio. We were the first customers of the dinner time period. We were given a corner table at the cusp of smoking and non smoking areas. We were given really ratty chairs, cracked and weathered, mine actually had a quarter size hole in the... More

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
