Kasa Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Probably the best food I have ever had! The service was perfect, and very friendly. The style of the restaurant was both casual and elegant. Food was fresh and plentiful. This will be a place I go to frequently. The prices were reasonably for the quality of food. My girlfriend and I ate for about $50 including tip and drinks. A++
The food was good. Pretty quiet. Sunday, early Valentine's dinner. Was quiet. Only music in the bar area. We did get to order off the happy hour menu from our table. Food was good. Even though not many people there, service was slow. Ordered a bottle of wine... rookie walked away from table to open it. Wine glasses didn't match.
Nowhere to park but the public garage but they validate parking... if you don't exceed 90 mins. With our slow service we exceeded our 90 mins and got stuck paying $10 to park.
The food was good though. Between the 2 of us we shared the yuca fondue, kasa corn, gyoza, the diced raw filet & the braised brisket on polenta. The braised brisket was boring but good. Everything else was delicious.
I've been here several times and was never overwhelmed by the first I'd but this time was different. It's all small plates and everything from the sushi to the brisket sliders was great. There's happy hour drinks and small plates, as well that are about $2 less each than the menu prices.
My only criticism was our server didn't have much knowledge of the menu. I asked about flavored cocktails and he said they didn't have them but they were on the menu! We also asked for coffee and he said the machine was broken and there was no hot water for tea ...huh?!
That to me is code for "I want to turn the table "
Always love Kasa for a pre-theater quick bite and satisfying, delicious, fun dinner. We are able to get in and out in time for the show while enjoying a great meal. We go during the "happy hour" menu which offers great values on selected, popular tapas. We will go back...again and again!
Every plate we tried was fantastic -- we couldn't decide on our favorite! Excellent service. The music was distracting from the ambiance - a bit too loud and too energetic/mechanistic, i.e, not enjoyable. The lighting at some tables made it a little hard to read the menus as there was no direct lighting and the room was dim. I think I would return just based on the quality of the food. Also, it is a great stop prior to a Dr. Phillips Center event thanks to the attentive and quick service. Great staff.
Always enjoy my food and experience here. Was supposed to meet with friends but they were late and I was hungry. Had the corn - DELISH. Had a martini - STRONG. Service was slow for being one of the few in the restaurant, she was busy chatting up her friends at the bar. I get it, no rush on a Saturday night but I actually was in a rush. Tipped her for the inconvenience of changing tables and getting 1 person instead of 4 but not for her service.
A wonderful evening, with excellent food and exceptional service. Realy enjoyed the current options on the menu, including the shrimp cerviche, pad thai calamari, and duck confit rolls. The chocolate cake was light and rich, without being sweet. Our server, (my apologies as I do not recall his name) was very personable and attentive, and did so with a subtlety that you hardly noticed his attention to detail. It had a a while since my last visit. I was quickly reminded why it is one of my personal favorites.
Great good. But felt unwelcome by the staff. In a fairly empty restaurant we were seated in the overflow area ( and we had reservations). Every other section was set up with silverware and napkins. Our waiter was good and proactive by removing a charge for an item that took much too long to arrive at the table.
But other people seated in the same section after us got up and left after waiting 15 minutes and never being greeted .
I think it is under new chef now. Previously I thought it was ok but hadn't returned so obviously wasn't blown away. Now I am. After this last visit, I will return as soon as I'm able. Menu has wonderful selections, too many things I wanted to try, and everything we did try was amazing. Many truly delicious and inventive vegetarian dishes out of the ordinary, which is too rare and always pleases me when I can choose from more than 2 boring sides or tapas. Meat eater enjoyed every dish as well, the meaty ones as well as the veggie ones. Pricing was so fair - excellent value, compared with other restaurants with similar type of menus (the ones where you could actually leave a bit hungry though spending a good chunk of change on "dinner"). When we said we were pre theater they helped get us in and out on time, too, with no attitude. Great service. Please keep up the great work in the kitchen and front of house management. I want to enjoy you for a long time!
Awful! Avoid Wednesday. Had a reservation and waited along time to have server come to table. Very loud. Thai pad calamari is sweet but it does not say that on menu. Seemed like the only important thing on Wednesday here is the all you can drink special Event they have. Been here a few times but many better choices are available.
Overall nice experience, close to Dr Phillips Center, clean, nice atmosphere, great staff. Food was hit and miss. Tuna appetizer, corn, and brussel sprouts were fantastic. Scallops were tiny and too salty. Ribs were so salty they were inedible. Lamb was just ok.
I have had several very nice dinners at Kasa and have recommended it to friends. On Sunday, I experienced my first brunch with three friends new to Kasa and it was more than disappointing. We had to hunt down a waiter for drinks; nothing about the brunch was explained so none of us had a sense we were even welcome. Since only the pastry servers seemed to have designated jobs, various menu items would run out on the brunch tables and there was no hurry to refill anything. Even worse, they made a point of putting your dirty silverware back on the tablecloth when they cleared plates; you ate your dessert with a fork carrying traces of jalapeño mac and cheese and jerk steak. It was a pricey let-down.
Kasa is a sleek modern restaurant located in downtown Orlando. Parking is somewhat difficult and the only way to park is across the street at $15.00 (-$5.00 if you get a copy of the check to validate the parking). The four of us tried six different tapas / small plates. The brussels sprouts and crab cakes were hands down our favorites quickly followed by the yuca fondue. Ask for extra yuca when you order the fondue because you will need it. Our least favorite was the adobo pork. The portions are tiny but everything is fresh and beautifully presented. We finished with two desserts which included the chocolate cake - a surprise almost jelly like texture. The evening was delightful and the service was attentive and friendly. The wine list offers plenty of choices, but most of them way over $30.00. We will definitely return.
Definitely a very lively and energetic environment when I unknowingly showed up for a quiet dinner on wine down Wednesday night. Even with such a big party going on with the event, the service and food were still spot on. I've been to KASA many times and whether it's on a fun night like wine down Wednesday or a more serine Tuesday night, it's been excellent.
I would have given Kasa a 5 star review except that my only complaint is for such an upscale restaurant, they don't serve sparkling wine, or champagne or prosecco by the glass or split- they only serve it by the bottle. I used to be able to get it there and then they stopped. The server brought me a glass of Whycliff sparking which is what they use for their mimosas and specialty drinks!! But it was warm and flat.... it's sad when Ferg's Depot serves splits but Kasa doesn't!!
Contemporary design, but, due to the openness and hard flooring, the noise level was loud even though the restaurant was not full. We came in the door closest to the theater and had to walk to the opposite end of the restaurant to find the check-in desk. Our server was JC who was terrific! Unfortunately, he's only there a couple of evenings. I ordered a "very berry sangria" but what arrived had a wedge of squeezed lime, another of lemon and an orange wedge on the glass - No berries. JC took care of that by adding a berry liqueur. The salmon with the risotto was excellent! The fish was cooked perfectly and the risotto was so deliciously creamy. I ordered a Ceasar salad which was big enough to share as were the potstickers that my husband ordered. The chicken with spatzel was tangy and tasty but a little difficult to work with. Parking is hard to come by. We were told by the check-in desk staff that they would validate our parking as long as we were checked out of the garage within 90 minutes of when we first received our parking ticket from the garage. Well, it wasn't completely true. We still paid $5.00 upon departure from the garage even though we left long before the 90 minute expiration.
We like to order an assortment of their small plates. The pad thai calamari is my favorite, I could eat 2 orders by myself. The lamb chops were excellent, the mojo Cuban spare ribs were fall off the bone delicious and the pan-seared gyoza were great.
The only criticism was with the coffee and tea service at the end of the meal. There was no coffee available and the tea selection was very limited.
All in all we enjoyed our meal and will return again.
Very lively atmosphere for Sunday brunch! The restaurant was packed and it had a very energetic feel. It's a young, hip crowd with great music playing. The food itself is ok at best. Not a ton of selection. But the limitless mimosas and sangrias were a huge plus!
