Every aspect was great. Excellent ocean views, server beyond pleasant and welcoming to our golden retriever. Food quality very good, but fairly limited menu.
Will be back again tonight!

We followed the smell of freshly cooked burgers and it led us here. Due to the hour the restaurant area was closed so we had to order of the "bar" menu which had I not been told would have never known as there was plenty of selections.
The burger was cooked perfectly, and was a meal in itself. The fries were "hand cut" and good, similar to beach fries on the east coast. Now the brussel sprouts were outstanding- they were not your ordinary brussels a "must try" you will not be disappointed.The clam soup with "real" clams in the shell was great as well.
They also have a nice beer and wine selection.
Service could not get any better. They even called a cab for us to get back in to town as the trolly had stopped running.
A great place for conversation, a relaxing meal, a quiet drink. but be early as it appears by 9pm the town shuts down.

I arrived at this restaurant approx 7pm with my 2 children in tow. We patiently waited to be seated since there was no host in sight. When we saw him come up the stairs a few minutes later he apologized to us for the wait and said a server would be right with us. So we waited a little longer... another 5 minutes goes by before a nice server comes from the kitchen area and shows us to a table. She hands me a menu and my two children each a kiddie menu with crossword and coloring options however no coloring crayons. 20 minutes go by as we watch tables being cleared and set up but no one approaches to take our order or even offer water. I wish I could tell you if the food in this place was good or not but unfortunately we ended up leaving to find food elsewhere.

Casablanca is a special evening out. We loved the view of the Wharf and ocean. The menu is amazing and the food delicious. The corkage fee was our only dislike. We were charged twenty dollars per bottle after having paid quite a bit for a party of ten. This was exhorbitant. But, the meal was excellent.

This place is incredible! Best place people watch in Santa Cruz! Anything but a tourist trap. Be sure and order a "Seattle Creamcycle"
