Nice Place for the young crowd

This place is very small, tight and packed mostly with the young crowd, at least that night I was there with a band in the rear section. Food was Ok but for me if I want to eat that way I will go to Grand Central Station at rush hour. Good Luck with this one...

Oh what a night. 2 in fact. First night had food. Christie the hostess is amazing fun, knows her stuff & makes the most amazing recommendations for food & drinks. Live music most nights. Food was totally fantastic, the best Moroccan food I have ever had. Eric is a total wine buff & was able to recommend some fabulous wine... More

The Fez is a great restaurant right in the center of downtown Stamford with fantastic Moroccan food and surprisingly a very extensive wine cellar (who know?!). I've been here a couple times and have always had the lamb lollipops which are delicious. While I haven't been there on a Saturday night, apparently there is live entertainment. Live adventurously and ask... More

Staying overnight at a nearby hotel, we struck out for an Indian restaurant that had been recommended to us. But my husband was intrigued by the menu and rave reviews posted in the window of The Fez. It was about 8 p.m., and the place was packed. The very nice hostess had turned some people away and was about to... More

We stumbled across this place looking for a meal when we found the Courtyard's restaurant closed on Sunday night. Great wine, excellent lamb and chicken tagines prepared to order, great service. They seemed to be set up for music later in the evening, but it was nice and quiet when we were there. We would gladly return here next time... More

Went out with friends recently and had really great looking and tasting food at this restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and just right. It was a pleasant surprise as i really didn't think i would enjoy the food so much. Also tasted off my friends plates - as they each ordered different meals...and they were all lovely. Highly recommend.

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.
