Never had dinner here but we stop frequently for drinks and appys before meeting our daughter who lives on the same side street as the restaurant. Consistently good drinks. Margaritas are excellent. Bartenders are always spot on. If they don't ask first, make sure to...More

Loved all the food that we tried in this cute little neighbourhood restaurant, the guac was sensational, the menu choice was varied, the staff were friendly and efficient, especially the girl working the outside tables on 6/4 eve! Only gripe would be that the sangria...More

Went to this place in April with some friends who had been here before. We tried a range of their tacos, and loved each and every one. The service was excellent too. A really nice touch were the fleece blankets they offered all of us...More

Cascabel, in fairness, has decent food. Although it is at times inconsistent. I particularly enjoy the breakfast radishes as a side dish. I have eaten at the restaurant a dozen or so times, but on one experience in recent months we were treated so poorly...More

My daughter lives in the neighborhood, so we came in for a later dinner on a Sunday evening. Service was slow, and they missed our drink order. Guacamole is delicious and gets you ready for the freshness presented during the entire meal. We had the...More
