This restaurant is right on the beach with a great patio for an ocean view. It is fairly expensive, but not any more than other seafood restaurants in the area. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The choices on the menu and other specials all sounded so good that it was hard to make a decision. We had the... More

We had lunch here upon our arrival to our hotel in the neighborhood. It was recommended by the bell staff as a place to go and have some food. There wasn't really anything wrong with my meal, but there wasn't really anything spectacular either. It took awhile to get service, despite being on the patio and in plain view of... More

My best friend and I a delicious grilled swordfish served with coconut couscous our first night here. We returned on Friday night for a cocktail and I mistakenly left my new iPhone 6 on the bar. We returned on Saturday/Sunday/Monday and continued checking with the manager/hostess. The staff seemed genuinely concerned and wrote down my friends phone number. We finished... More

Dined at Casablanca in Ft. Lauderdale on March 12th, and it was not the same wonderful experience we enjoyed only a year ago. We sat at an outdoor table for 15 minutes before we finally got the attention of a server who said "this wasn't his table" (it was clearly in his section)...then decided he would "help us out" and...

This is one of the finest restaurants on the beach. The food and drinks were outstanding and reasonably priced. Yes I would go back again and again. The staff is very friendly and gracious

Love the food - seafood and sauces are amazing. One note is that they don't take reservations (maybe they do for larger groups). It can be difficult to get a table in peak season.

Don't ask us why this restaurant if so popular. The food is overpriced, terrible to mediocre and our service was poor. Many of the staff have attitude. One of us found sand or dirt in the Caesar Salad and reported this. Nothing was done and in fact the waiter argued with her. Although location is gorgeous, the place is very... More

We walked to Casablanca after being referred by hour Hotel Concierge. We ate outside in the shade and watched the beach and people going and coming. The service was good and complemented the food. We'll go back when ever we are at Ft. Lauderdale.

We had dinner at the Casablanca on March 24th, our last night in Fort Lauderdale. This is our annual trip to Southern Florida and we always make sure that we have at least one dinner there. Tuesday night was a perfect night, great temperature, great food, right by the Ocean. The staff is excellent.
