That was our second time. Was disappointed with the quality of the service. It took 40 minutes to get my food, when my husband was done already with his dish.
Servers doesn’t care about customer service... btw best tom yum in town.

Overall our experience was a bit below average. Waitress did not visit the table very often, took a while for her to come to the table for the first time and then after taking our order she did not return at all for drink refills or to check on us until we were pretty much finished with our food. Value of our food was fair and dishes were decent.

Nice spot in bustling Las Olas strip, with Latin and Asian-inspired cuisine. Not as much fusion as offering parallel cuisines, but with some excellent dishes, such as bbq ribs and dumplings, that are good for sharing. All sauces tend to be overdosed on sugar, but overall there were enough good choices that our international guests were very pleased. Best of all, we were seated at a table well away from others, in a COVID-19- safe outside area.

I’ve dined at Casa Sensi numerous times and typically the experience is always stellar. This dining experience was for a friends birthday and it absolutely had a couple of hits and several misses.

Let’s start with the good:

Casa really knows how to start a meal off on the right foot! The popcorn they bring to the table is DELICIOUS. My companions and I could not stop eating it.

Our server was very nice. The ambiance was beautiful as always. The crab Rangoon is a app I highly recommend. It comes with a sweet chili sauce that has a nice kick! They may have changed their recipe a bit bc typically they are filled with crab. This time they had a lot more cream cheese than usual but still very good.

The chimmichuri steak and sesame chicken were huge hits!

Now onto the areas of improvements:

The shrimp shumai had absolutely no flavor. I couldn’t even tell I was eating shrimp. The timing our food came out also was a problem. We were a group of four. Two entrees came out almost and we had to wait for the other two. It was about 15 minute wait before they brought the third dish and probably about 8 before they brought the fourth and final dish.

I got wagu beef, lobster tail, mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak was amazing. The lobster tail was okay, had a bit of a char to it but the butter smoothed that out. The problem was the sides. The potatoes and asparagus tasted like gasoline. Totally inedible. I told our waitress and she immediately offered the manager to come over. While that was nice of her it is easily something she could have fixed. She later returned to say the manger would not be coming over but that they would offer a credit. Again while I didn’t want the manager in the first place, I wanted my food to be fixed, it was a bit insulting that the manager didn’t have the time to come over. When I got my bill there was a 10 dollar credit. NOT NEARLY enough when I tell you I am eating gasoline. I really just wanted my sides replaced.

Came here with my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. We had a reservation but still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated at a table after checking in. After getting seated, waited 15-20 minutes before anyone came to our table to take our drink orders and our table was not cleaned. I think we may have caught them between shift changes but after our waiter was assigned to our table he was very attentive. Food and atmosphere were very good, overall service was subpar.

The service and food was good but unfortunately the staff was fully cleaning and closing before we received our bill. It’s just very unwelcoming when staff is yelling and running around. Disappointing because this is a beautiful restaurant and it’s not cheap.

Nice riverside setting. Even romantic, if you want.
The quality of the food is average or even mediocre. The service is too (too) slow and, in general, bad.
Server tried to be gracious but ended up pushing us too much so we would order the expensive dishes.
I would not return, although someone that is not too demanding on the quality of food and prioritize the setting should definitely give it a try.

I guess we went back too soon after having an amazing NYE dinner there. The food and drinks were off. My bf ordered a brunch special with truffle fries and when his order was finally delivered (about 15 min AFTER everyone else was eating) the server stated that truffle fries dont come with the special and the restaurant doesnt even have that available. We had to point out it was explicitly stated on the menu. He never returned but our waiter came and advised the fries were being made (arriving after the meal was almost done). Then the drink mix for one of my friends was poorly made. There were no apologies or even a credit for the fry issue. Overall just a bad experience. My bf even ended up being sick a couple hrs later from the food. We’ve decided to take an extended break from this restaurant option.
