Lovely ambience, really great staff as they're professional, fri and newly, attentive, while unobtrusive. Food mostly really great, though read the menu item ingredients as some can get heavy.

Unfortunately this was our first experience at Casbah where the food and service were subpar. The parsnip soup was bland and under salted; the burger overcooked, undersized and over salted. The bread pudding was the one highlight of the meal - it was great, and the tomato basil bisque was also good. The caramel chocolate brownie was just ok, and... More

My wife and I have dined at Casbah at least ten times over the last few years, and it is always a very satisfying experience. You enter the restaurant through their covered outdoor space which is quite nice on a warm evening. The main dining space is elegant, but not overstated. The wait staff is consistently pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable.... More

What a great meal. The buttered served with the bread is awesome. Had the calamari / shrimp appetizer and it was fantastic. Filet was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend.

We were new to Pittsburgh and asked friends for suggestions as to where we might enjoy. They gave us some options. After reviewing menus we made great decision to go there. The ambiance was perfect ,the food did not disappoint. The suggested wine was reasonable .All in all we were more than satisfied .

Every time we go to Casbah, we feel as if we are the only guests there. How they manage to make this magic happen... Warmly greeted, seated and attended to each visit. (brunch and dinners) The value is there. The prices are plainly visible. ALL questions are responded to in a genuine manner. Every dish we've ordered has been prepared... More

Went for a family meal, the servers were very accommodating of our requests and we decided to sit in the outside (but covered) area as it was a pleasant evening. The food was well presented and everything tasted great. I had the pork chop on a prosciutto and parmesan risotto which was very good - both presentation and flavour combinations.... More

Great food! This place is popular so a reservation is highly recommended. The quality of the food is reflected in the price so don't expect this to be cheap. However, if you want a great meal this is the place to go. We enjoyed the flatbreads/hummus and bruschetta as appetizers - both recommended and was enough to share between 4... More

We went to Cashbah for lunch and we were not disappointed. A great selection and reasonable priced. Popular among locals. Recommend their crab cake sandwich as well as their roasted tomato soup.

I went 3 times to Casbah in the last few months and every time we had a fantastic time. The food is very good and competes well with the quality set by other restaurants in Pittsburgh. Last time I went, I had a the newly introduced item (Gnocchi) and loved it. The sea scallops appetizer is a popular dish and... More
