The first time I went to Casablanca my mouth turned down. The food wasn't particularly good either and has not improved. BUT its a great place to meet friends for a drink before heading out somewhere else in Harvard Square for a show, play, meal, etc.

Boo Hoo, end of an era! Used to love this place, especially the bar, but as of 1/1/2013 it is no more. Actually had a job interview dinner there once and had dinner here with man friends. No use talking about the food, but do notice that the small of barbecue is gone from Church Street. Always used to lure... More

Pleasant lower-level place off Brattle Square. We went tapas-style. The quality was great. Our server was top-notch - one of the best ever!

A restaurant or bar that depends on the famous movie for its theme is always suspect, but in this case Casablanca is a comfortable, even homey, spot in a convenient spot near the main part of Harvard Square. Our drinks were full strength and our cheese burgers ($13 with a huge serving of fries) were way above average. What else... More

Good veggie options were available, servers were well informed about the menu and happy to offer suggestions. Sadly this restaurant is closing at the end of the year.

Casablanca is a well established institution right in Harvard Square, a destination that's soon to close (rumors have it the closing's been postponed from later this month to the end of September). Whenever it happens, it'll be a sad day in my book. I've met countless friends there, simply saying, "meet me @ the bar" ... they know where to... More

The food is creative and well prepared, an exotic blend of Moroccan, Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine. While popular for years with its Casablanca movie mural reflected in the large bar mirror, it has gotten better with time. I'd rate it one of the top 10 in Cambridge and is reasonably priced. The bartender is friendly and helpful, especially nice for... More

Have not been to this restaurant in years and found it was a good choice to come back to. Great location in Harvard Square, nice ambiance and quite good food. The menu was creative and local, service good and reasonably priced

I went at lunch and it was very quiet. I sat at the bar-the bartender was very nice and helpful. The wine list (by the glass) is not extensive but it is good. The menu is not very extensive but the food is really good. I am a little partial to food from Turkey/Greece and this hit the spot! Not... More
