The food here is heart warming, delicious, hearty, satisfying and memorable. The chef always makes me think someone's grandmother is back there cooking up a storm. The taste is authentic, the service is good and the owner is a bit of a wine expert if you need advice on a pairing. Don't let the dark walls confuse you - the... More

Great food but it is time to change or add to the menu. The hostess is lovely. Waiter a bit scattered and inattentive with an attitude I couldn't figure out why, as we were a party of 4 and ordered appetizers, food and drink. Past experiences have proven better. Would like to see different menu items.

I love their swordfish and they have a lot of very tasty selections. the owner has great wines and we often enjoy great bottles. I am not always a fan of the live bands but it is a great place when we show up as... More

I went to order food to go this afternoon. I was told the food would be ready in 10-15 minutes. When I came back in 15 min, they said due to computer errors, the order was just sent to kitchen 2 minutes ago. Normally I'm not very patient with this kind of situation, but people working in this restaurant handled... More

Dined here last night for the first time - and my birthday celebration with my boyfriend. He made reservations in advance, which I totally recommend. He knows I like sitting in a booth so he requested it when he made the reservations, and they were so kind to sit us in basically the only booth style seating arrangement! The service... More

Stopped in without a reservation, and the options offered were the bar or a table next to the piano. I chose the table, which felt like it was part of the piano. No biggie. Ordered the chicken tangine, which was very tasty. Once my dinner was served, nobody checked on me. I had ordered a glass of wine, and it... More

Intended to eat at another restaurant nearby but it was too crowded & noisy so in frustration we went into The Fez with no clue what we were getting. Moroccan food. Not one of my staples. Lots of lamb which I can't stand. But, wow! The chicken pizzet was a pita pizza, very spicy & great with goat cheese. The... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch at this local Moroccan restaurant. The food is wonderfully spiced and unique. If you are looking to try something different, give Fez a try. We had roasted cauliflower with pine nuts, a Fez style spin on pizza with chicken and kabobs with marinated lamb and shrimp. Everything was tasty.

Great little restaurant located on Summer Street in Stamford. Food and staff are amazing. Presentation of food is also excellent. Came here for lunch and had the lamb kabob with a pyramid of cous-cous and a salad. Appetizer was a mixture of red potatoes and herbs. Food portions are just right, Staff are very friendly and aim to please. Parking... More

My husband and I walked in after the symphony. We were walking along summer street trying to decide where to eat when we came across The Fez. We both like near eastern/north african cruisine and so we decided to try it. The food was delicious, the server a charmer and the service was prompt. We stared with hummus with a... More
