Consistently good. We've been there a dozen or more times and have had great food and service every time. Menu varies enough to be interesting. Lunch is a good way to try it out. Also love the company that owns Casbah for how they support...More

Whether its treating to guests from out of town, or simply hanging out with family, there is always something delicious for everyone. Staff very good and respectful. Newer cocktails are pretty good as well.

Start with the calamari -- it will be one of the lightest versions of this dish you've had. We followed that with swordfish and duck. Marvelous! The service is impeccable and sitting in the courtyard is always a pleasing experience. I just wish the meals...More

Food is always great here. The Gusto allows you to have soup or salad, pasta & half a sandwich. Moo! It was excellent!

We were pleasantly surprised with the food and service at Casbah. We ordered the soft shell crabs, salmon, and swordfish. All were well prepared, well presented, and good. They have a solid wine list. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable. I would eat here...More

Dined last evening with another couple, who we haven't seen in some time. Service was professional and seamless in the background. Drinks arrived quickly, plates removed quietly, allowing us to interact as we desired. We chose to eat within the confines of the building, leaving...More

After a long drive we arrived in Pittsburgh and while we stayed close by, I've found the Casbah close by. We weren't disappointed by the food and the service. Actually, they did everything I've asked for right. I didn't like their highly praised Tiramisu Cheesecake...More
