This is a historic restaurant with delicious food and plenty of ambience. The service is excellent. The mushroom and goat cheese filled ravioli is stupendous. There is entertainment that can be heard throughout the restaurant.

I'd say it's a perfect place for a leisurely lunch or dinner - with outdoor seating right off the beach, a bit removed from the rowdy bars and restaurants further along A1A towards Miami (if only the A1A were not there, but, alas, nothing is perfect). I've been to this restaurant about 5 times over the past few years, and... More

This is our second time having a late lunch at Casablanca and it was even better than the first. Three of us got the fish and chips. It was truly delicious and a huge platter of food. The other got the seafood linguine and she thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Despite having a bit of a wait, we always come to... More

Spendy, but a knowledgeable server and well prepared meals. Interesting atmosphere in faux Moroccan setting. Eat upstairs if you want to avoid the noise from the piano bar, which is quite good but makes it hard to have a conversation. I was happy to see a wide selection on the menu, not just seafood. My duck was very well prepared... More

There is a reason for the outstanding reviews for this restaurant as our experience was very good. The restaurant is packed most of the time, but if you're willing to eat later, you can get in. The seafood was excellent, and if you're a beet lover, the beet salad is not to be missed. We were also lucky enough to... More

Yes, it is true, there were five of us and we all thought we had the best meal at the table: blue crab crusted Mahi Mahi, red snapper, spicy scallops, rotini with chicken and blackened grouper. There was not one bad meal at our table. Expect to enjoy a wonderful meal with great wait staff and elect to pay for... More

I must admit the restaurant has a good ambiance; however, the food and drinks were average. The hostess was extremely helpful, but our server was not very friendly.

Have been here for lunch and dinner. Nice casual environment. Weekend dinner had live music which was loud, but pretty good. I was there late and kitchen staff went home after meal was made. When I ordered desert, the waiter said he could pull something together but couldn't prepare anything that needed to be cooked. Offered to do pretty much... More

Wow... Just plain Wow... We were told to come here by a friend of mine who travels to Ft. Lauderdale quite a bit and I know exactly why he loves this place because we loved it so much that we made sure we came here twice on our trip. Few things... Casablanca Cafe does not take reservations... why would you... More
