We live in the neighborhood and decided to give it a try for lunch--BIG MISTAKE! Two out of four orders came out wrong (the place was not busy at all) and the french, poser waiter stubbornly insisted that it was our fault. The ravioli

M and I were warmed by the friendly reception and the quick attention, but when we complained about things -- we asked for drinks with no rose's lime juice and got nothing but rose's lime juice, the smiles continued as the same flawed

I grew up in NYC and have had my share of horrible meals, but last night truly ranks up (or down) there with the worst of them. It was like the cooks had never cooked in their lives before. I ordered a grilled squid salad only to discover

We went to Casanis with a group of friends the other night and were extremely disappointed with the place. The service was simply horrible. They took forever to take our order and after one hour of having ordered they came back and told us

Best friend and I went there for a wonderful dinner. Perfect date spot. Or catch up with your best friend spot. Everything was perfectly done. Service was attentive but not annoying. Food was very fresh. Loved it. Great prices.

I was excited to see a new French place open in the neighborhood but was disappointed when I tried it. The service was extremely slow and inattentive and the food was only mediocre. Needless to say I don't plan to return. It might be

I've been here a few times and for the most part have had an enjoyable experience. The food is consistently decent (the mussels were better than decent and the tuna steak was one of the best I've ever had. Simple, but fresh and sweet.

While the food was not bad, the host was quite offensive, making the whole evening not worth the trouble. The 10 oz. steak was passable, and while not extraordinary, for the city it was worth the price. Though a member of our party

The atmosphere is great, more elegant than most of the places in the hood. Drinks were made by someone who clearly respects the cocktail and what people look for in a cocktail and the burger, damn smart chef, is not only voluptuous but

Being french, I am always surprised on how "french bistros" are successfull in New York, because if you've been around in Paris a bit, they're nothing like bistros in Paris ... But I have to say it the formula works, Pastis, Schiller ...

Pros: inexpensive, good parking

I not only went there for dinner on Friday night, but Casanis is so good that I had to go back for Sunday brunch.
Finally a place in the Lower East side (not on clinton street) that has lovely food to match a lovely atmosphere.

When I first saw Casanis I thought to myself "what a bright place in an otherwise dark corner." I went inside and felt I had come home. An amazing find in the lower east side that, up till now, has lacked great restaurants at affordable

This new french restaurant has the most amazing food. Everything about the place- from the decor, the table, the bar...even the bartender feels authentically French. The ambiance is great- laid back, trendy and relaxed. I highly recommend
