When you order the specially prepared food it is a real treat. There standard items on the menu are great but if you patronize the restaurant as often as we do you will never be disappointed in the service or trying something you always wanted to try. The owners are very generous in providing dinners for non-profits to have fund... More

We love this Big Burrito establishment as it matures and becomes a perennial choice to enjoy, no matter the season. It starts with a well-stocked bar area, nicely lit and very comfortable. The indoor dining area is complimented by the (now-covered) outdoor seating area. Service was mostly attentive, if quite friendly throughout the evening. The wine list is varied and... More

Casbah is one of the most consistent restaurants in terms of food and service. We have dined here many many times and have never been disappointed. Everything on the menus is very good (I only know this because I taste my wife's) For me, I always want something different, but always order the Pork Chop. I have never found another... More

My family ate here for lunch and couldn't have been more satisfied. We had the three course Gusto menu which included soup, 1/2 sandwich and pasta all for just $15. The servings were perfect and the quality of the food was excellent.

We dined here for my wife's birthday last year. We started out at the bar ordering cocktails. I had a tasty cocktail with bourbon. We finished our drinks and made out way over to our table. We started out with a cheese tasting, which was very good. For entrees she ordered the Halibut and I had the Red Pepper Casereccia.... More

Honestly can say - the best meal ever. Service was excellent. Calamari was out of this world- husband had Fish, it was just fantastic. I had steak- also delicious, cooked perfectly. So very few times are you just blown out of the water with a great experience. Can't wait to go back.

Every year, my girlfriends and I meet at Casbah to celebrate the 2 Christmas holiday birthdays. Casbah neve disappoints from a food perspective. The oldies but goodies remain on the menu for probably the last 15 years.... Arugula salad and chicken cranberry orecchiette are always delicious and the seafood ciopinno is one of my personal favorites. The service was not... More

Food is excellent, happy hour a good value and valet parking a perk. Love the pasta dishes and the Mediterranean appetizer is always a winner. One of the best of the Big Burrito chain of restaurants and almost equal to Eleven! So glad that they have brought back the Elysian Fields lamb as there is none better!

Great place! We enjoyed the food along with an energetic at atmosphere. If you’re looking for a place that you can take a date or just get a bite after work this it. The menu changes periodically so you won’t get tired of the same food. So go and have some fun.

Went there on a Satuday night at 7:30pm with friends. We had reserved and were told to wait in the bar area for our table. I was sorry that the bar expenses could not be moved to our dinner bill and had to be paid for separately. Dinner was excellent, the lamb loin, the sirloin were cooked to order perfectly,... More
