great homemade tortillas, best mexican food, great place, authentic margaritas, very good service, nice atmosphere, delightful seafood entrees
Casablanca in Venice, California. The Casablanca Restaurant is a classic type of Venice restaurant that people can simply fall in love with. It might seem old and very thematic as patterned to the movie of the same name. While the cuisine may be slightly different than expected, alas, it
Still love it after all these years!.
Greatest calamari steak with a garlicky butter sauce - OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Easy to fill up on the fresh made tortillas and salsa verde that are served prior to the meal.
Margaritas are pricey, but the strawberry version was fine for $15.
All in all, still a great place to eat after 20 years of yearly visits!!!!
Very disappointed. My husband I decided to check out Casablanca based on the supposed great reviews....were we totally disappointed! We should have walked out when we first walked in b/c the restaurant smelled like fish. The tacky fake rose napkin holders with the god awful decor and the singer with a black eye said it all - "SAVE YOUR MONEY & LEAVE!!" But we decided to try it out anyways. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and were disappointed again when the contents looked more like lemonade than refreshing authentic margaritas. What a joke. $22 for fake margaritas! Then the tacos had more onions, bell peppers and letuce than the few cold pieces of beef. Save your money and dine else where. I don't think the previous reviewers have had real Mexican food. This place does not compare to anything authentic!
Meh. really wanted to like this place, but the food was simply just not good. The service was slow and the margaritas were flavored water w/ seemingly no alcohol! I must say that I did enjoy the fresh flour tortillas and the green sauce they served with them, but unfortunately, the tortillas alone were not enough to bring me back.
Greatest Mexican Seafood place. If you like old movies and fabulous food, this is the place for you. Casablanca is patterned after the movie and has memorabilia all over the restaurant, including in the banos. My favorite dish for the last 20+ years is the Mexican Seafood Pasta -- covers my three favorite cuisines all in one scrumptious dish.
An Odd PLace with Loads of Character and Great Tortillas. Casablanca is a great little restaurant that seems like it's from another decade. It's chalk full of random stuff from the Bogart film and out dated Moroccan decorations (although they don't serve Moroccan food). The food is great and the margaritas are awesome. They have a whole menu of margaritas but their house is my favorite. The food is not typical Mexican cuisine, so if you want a burrito or taco combo this isn't your place. The seafood entrees are the best and the carne asada with fresh guacamole can't be beat. And of course, their tortillas are amazing.
Great Tortillas. This place is great. I really love the tortilla and salsa. The best thing about this place is that they cater and they bring the Tortilla lady with them.
Great Salsa and the Tortillas. I love this place. It is better than the place across the street and has better prices. I love the tequla selection and the Tortillas. The wait staff is great. The best mexican restuarant in Venice .
Best Catering Company in westside. The I hire Casablanca to cater my husband's birthday party. The services was great and I could belive that you could hire the lady that make tortillas. The tortillas were a huge sucess. The food was great. They still have the best Calamaril in town.
darn great tortillas, okay everything else. This place has pretty standard Mexican fare. Their menu is like every other Mexican restaurant, where some menu items aren't very good, some are above average, but most of it isn't anything to speak of. I am big on ordering Seafood Enchiladas from places that boast Mariscos and theirs tasted sort of weird. It had some sour green sauce that I wasn't too fond of. However, their saving grace is their TORTILLAS. At first, I thought they had laced it with some cheesy gooey goodness...just something extra because it was so darn fresh and tasty. I ended up finishing their tortilla appetizer and ditching my entree.
