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.

Often end up there when I travel to Stamford and always have a good experience. 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
