Casa La Femme
Posted by Ash on 05/16/2010
Great ambience the decor and setting is wonderful. The food is ok, but way way overpriced for what you get. I do not mind going out and dropping a few hundred dollars for dinner but I do expect it to be worth just that and my experience here was anything but worth it. The portions are tiny, we all left feeling anything but full and the service was pretty bad it took forever to get little things like salt, or a drink. So definately not worth the money. I would not repeat.

My boyfriend family and I enjoyed our- selves tremendously, we dance the night away while sipping on Cosmos and wannabe mojitos which had to be recalled numerous amount of times. The servers were confused I might say the food was tasteful. The Belly dancer was wonderful she greeted everyone by dancing at each table.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind going out to a restaurant and blow 200 dollars, but I expect a lot more if I'm going to pay that kind of money. The minute I sat down in my tent, a couple sitting next to me was walking out. After waiting for a half hour for their drinks, they were going home to cook a meal instead. I should have taken their lead. My service was equally as bad. On my way out I talked to a female manager about my dissatisfaction and it was clear why they can't hold on to any good servers. The food may be good, but you can Egyptian food almost anywhere in town that's just as good and won't cost you 100+ per person.

The decor and the ambience was magnificent. However the service was average and they seemed obsessed with turning tables quickly. On the whole the place was beautifully decorated, the belly dance was terrific but from a value perspective extremely poor, and the food was very average.

the service was extremely unpleasant, and after attempting to contact the manager , we were told he apologized for our service, but didnt have time to come to the table. we were also told, by our very unfriendly waitress, that the owners, who were also there that night, didnt speak to customers. food was sub par and very overpriced

Being someone with Egyptian Background I really enjoyed mi dinner at Casa La Femme. I have now been there three times and each time I am more impressed. The food is very authentic and well prepared (I especially recommend the grilled chicken with molokhya - better than my grandmother's). . If you plan on going to Casa La Femme, do it right. Make reservations and enjoy the prix fixe menu in the tent. The place is gorgeous and I have also found the staff very friendly and accommodating and while dinners tend to take some time, it only enhances the experience and allows one to savor the incredible food. This is hands down the best Egyptian restaurant in Manhattan and I highly recommend it.

We went to the restaurant with a group of 13 to celebrate high school graduations. The place looked great and had a good feel, however, the service let us down quite a few times during our stay. Some people's drinks arrived in a timely manner, but others had to wait an unreasonable length of time for theirs. The same problem occured with the appetizers and entrees, with one of our party not getting his meal until everyone else had finished. Apparently, this was due to a server for another table mistakenly taking the dish. Unfortunately, the problem was compounded later on. The manager came over to apologize and told us that we would not be charged for a specific $35 item on our bill. We were appreciative until we were on our way home and saw that we actually had been charged for the item. When we called to point out the mistake, we were told that we couldn't get a refund of the $35 but that the next time we came in, we could get something on the house. Truthfully, this type of "oversight" is inexcusable, as is the restaurant's poor effort to "correct" it. After spending more than $1,000 on our dinner, we would expect a little more consideration from any well-run establishment. So, despite the place's good looks and good food - as well as a beautiful belly dancer - we just can't recommend it.
