Casbah is innovative and uses lot of fresh, local ingredients, without being outrageous. It is always a treat to go there.

Went for a late lunch and had great service. Enclosed patio dining was nice. Our meals consisted of salads, BLT(so-so), (very good)Risotto, (very good)crab cake sandwich and a shared "delicious" s'mores cake with salted caramel ice cream. Would go back there again.

My husband and I were given a Big Burrito gift card to dine at any of that group of restaurants, and chose Casbah based on the web site menus and photos. The food was excellent, the staff appropriately attentive, and the atmosphere lively. I realize now, however, that to avoid being seated so close to other diners, I need to... More

Perfectly cooked fresh grilled octopus salad. Fresh Alaskan halibut done right with a quick pan sear and finish in oven. Bread pudding had good taste but was dry because pan wasn't deep enough. Liked the wine list. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I went to Casbah for the first time a few days ago. We liked it a lot not only for the great food but also the attention to detail. I made a reservation through Open Table asking for a table away from the center of the room and a corner table was ready for us when we... More

If you have an appreciation for perfectly cooked food, great wine selection, and if you can afford it, you should try this place. I'd recommend dining in the patio, but it can get too crowded and during summer you get bugs all around, inside is as beautiful. Staff is professional, they know their menu. I tried two wine seletions and... More

The food was great and we enjoyed the ambience very much. The waiter was a little rushed - not very personable but he did answer all of our questions satisfactorily.

My husband and I went to Casbah to celebrate Father's Day, my treat. We'd never been to Casbah so we were both looking forward to it. The online menu looked promising, plenty of variety. But the photos of the interior did not accurately express the atmosphere. We got a reservation at 6:15pm, and were seated in their indoor/outdoor patio, which... More
