The Fez is a hip downtown Stamford destination where the flavors of the spice route meet the music that spans across many genres. The cuisine is a vibrant mix of Middle Eastern, Moroccan and Turkish dishes, with a music scene and beverage program that's just as eclectic. Live entertainment nightly. Karaoke Wednesday nights!

Very yummy Moroccan

My first visit here recently and I wasn't disappointed. Attentive service, very yummy appetizers and salads for lunch, perhaps a bit pricey, but I would definitely go again for the great flavors/service. Very cozy atmosphere. I hear there are belly dancers and live music in the evening!

My wife is Lebanese and we eat a lot of different middle eastern foods so I thought The Fez would be fun. Went here for dinner, sat at the bar and ordered 4 small plate items. It was good food but not great. The food was bland, lacking traditional spices that give the food its unique flavor. Even the desert... More

Fez is a happy restaurant with a convivial atmosphere. The late night music is always good as is the food and drink.

We went to Fez for Halloween dinner, and to be fair the food was good and the service was terrific. There was a costume contest which my wife entered. The owner, acting as MC also judged the contest and made inappropriate and racially insensitive remarks about my wife, who is Asian. These comments were neither funny nor acceptable. The people...

Rock_the_Fez, Owner at The Fez, responded to this review

There are multiple owners of the business. I am one of the senior owners and am embarrassed and disappointed by the extremely inappropriate behavior exhibited by the MC. I was shocked by the commentary spoken that evening, his attempt to be funny failed, nothing about it was right. I feel very badly that it placed such a dark shadow over... More

The Fez is a wonderful restaurant, which can be romantic enough for a first date, relaxed enough for birthday party of a friend from Germany, and/or fun enough for a casual Friday night out when you want a glass of Bordeaux and some of that live music. Love the food in there - order anything you want, they are yet... More

We had a chance to visit with Eric, the manager. He helped us pick a wine and shared with us his favorites on the menu. We ordered the 3 snack combo (crispy chickpea and okra, grape leafs with lamb and roasted cauliflower), all very delicious. We then tried the beet salad, shrimp kabob and lamb chop. The wine Eric recommended... More

The food was AMAZING!!!!! The scallops were out of this world. We also had the kabobs and the chicken lollypops, which were also delicious. Definitely recommend this restaurant. Going to be returning very soon.

Went for lunch with my daughter for restaurant week and we enjoyed the menu very much. The portions were just right. The Harira soup was hearty and delicious as were the scallops and hummus. All three courses we both had were tasty. I heard good things about this restaurant and they were right. It is an adorable little place with... More
