My husband and I went to Casbah to celebrate a Valentines Day. We ordered duck which was awesome...very tasty. Food is well prepared and quantity is slightly small but adequate. You definitely have room for dessert. I wasn't impressed with the tiramisu...not sweet at all...drenched in liquor. Loved the wine flights. Best bang for your money and it was entertaining.... More

Coworkers and I had a lovely lunch at the Casbah. Squash Soup and salad were all very good. The omelette was also very good. Orecchiette with chicken and goat cheese was fabulous. Service was not overly friendly, but efficient. The restaurant has a calming decor inside and the covered patio is bright and spacious. Complimentary Valet is a plus.

My wife and I don't get to Pittsburgh often to dine, so we spent some time considering our options, Casbah was highly rated and we called shortly before 8:30PM, they had a seating for 2 and we jumped on the opportunity. Great waitress with attentive service, tasty food, I had swordfish and my wife lamb shank which was served with... More

Good brunch food, a bit pricey. The waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. Valet parking was included in the cost of the meal. You must have your valet ticket stamped before retrieving your car.

My husband and I couldn't resist eating too much because everything tasted so good. We started by splitting a seafood pasta main dish, he had a pork chop, I had octopus and the beet salad, and then we each had dessert. Plus three splits of wine. Our waitress was unusually helpful and knowledgeable, too.

Enjoyed dinner at Casbah on a recent trip to Pittsburgh, so we booked a return visit for New Year's Day. Big mistake! We had made a reservation online and had confirmed by phone the day before and specifically requested a table that could accommodate a person in the party with difficult mobility issues. "No problem" was the answer I had... More

We were happy with our meals, even though the staff was less than excited to seat us. Reasonable value, poor service.

Great food, great service, though the room can get a bit loud (especially near the bar). Nice cocktail list and good wine by the glass. We had the gnudi (excellent), scallops (outstanding) tuna tartare (good) and the octopus (also good). For an entree, had the duck and it was also outstanding. FREE valet parking in an area where it's hard... More

Never disappointing. Our favorite of the Big Burrito group of restaurants in the Burg. (2nd and third choice are Umi & Soba. Both terrific also.) Wonderful scallops. Always good service. We prefer the outside (covered) patio when crowded because not quite as noisy as inside. Also downstairs is cozy and quiet.

Next time we are in Pittsburgh we will return. Our server was a good guide, and the cocktails were a great start. Don't miss the pork chop or the lamb shanks. One of our party had salmon, and another has the halibut. Halibut came out overdone, and the replacement was nearly raw. The friendliness and genuine concern of the staff... More
