“Food average, vibe great, location excellent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

The first time I went to Casablanca my mouth turned down. The food wasn't particularly good either and has not improved. BUT its a great place to meet friends for a drink before heading out somewhere else in Harvard Square for a show, play, meal, etc.

“It's closed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Boo Hoo, end of an era! Used to love this place, especially the bar, but as of 1/1/2013 it is no more. Actually had a job interview dinner there once and had dinner here with man friends. No use talking about the food, but do notice that the small of barbecue is gone from Church Street. Always used to lure us in on our way from the T.

“Quality food, great service”

Pleasant lower-level place off Brattle Square. We went tapas-style. The quality was great. Our server was top-notch - one of the best ever!

“Strong drink, good burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

A restaurant or bar that depends on the famous movie for its theme is always suspect, but in this case Casablanca is a comfortable, even homey, spot in a convenient spot near the main part of Harvard Square.

Our drinks were full strength and our cheese burgers ($13 with a huge serving of fries) were way above average. What else can you ask of Rick's place?
