Thought we would be safe with this selection for a vegan based on Mediterranean style food, but there are very few options. The spreads on the appetizer menu are vegan (the chickpea flatbread was very good) but everything else - including salads, it seems- had...More

Enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Casbah. Valet parking is a big plus. But the service and the food here are the winners. We tried the cheeses appetizer, octopus, meatballs and calamari; all delicious. Amongst the entrees we had were the scallops, lamb shank, and...More
