Great Atmosphere, Cozy & Friendly

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... read 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

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

We saw all the great reviews but did not think quite as much of this place as everyone else. Very warm and intimate room with a great vibe. But we're at a restaurant for the food and thought it was about average. Falafel salad had soggy and barely warm falafel which ruined the dish. Chicken Tagine was better but lacked... More

The lamb shank was delicious!!! Also recommend small plates: lamb chops, scallops and califlower. Our meal was perfectly cooked. The drinks/wines were very good. We made reservations for 8:30, and sat and enjoyed a live band. Very small place...you must make reservations! Great little place downtown.

Been to The Fez before but 1st time since it's renovations. Absolutely fabulous, always a great atmosphere. The new menu is excellent and the burgers to die for. Staff as friendly as ever. Can't wait for the new pool and rooms to be finished. Will be definitely staying here later on the summer. A+++++++

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...
