I may not be the right person to give this place a fair judgment as I am not a big fan of this style of food. However, I don't mind it for a change in general, but the two or three times that I have been to Maroosh, I was underwhelmed even by my low expectations for this style of... More

Every year, either my husband or I celebrate our birthday at Maroosh. We love this place. The owner is amazing, he always remembers us and has our favorite wine ready for us. He even asks us about trips we've been on and such. You can tell the man cares deeply about his place and his customers! The food there is... More

Quick review: delicious Mediterranean food with Greek and Middle Eastern influences. Friendly, professional service. We enjoys splitting dishes, and this is a great place for it. We shared hummus, baked kibbeh, a lamb dish, and veges. All was fresh and delicious. Well-priced wine list by the bottle and glass. The dining room and upstairs dining has an exotic flair in...

The Place is very comfortable. The service great and the food very good. I though it was mediterranean from all these countries and I wanted to find greek food but they are only lebanese cuisine but it is very good. The lamb is deliscious and the appetizers are wonderful.

We went back to Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant last night, after not visiting it for over 6 months. Can't imagine what kept us away! We were received (sans reservation) quickly and very friendly by the staff, seated in just a few minutes and promptly waited on. As usual, the food is just outstanding, whether you are just having appetizers or a... More

There are not that many middle eastern restaurants in Miami. However, living in the Gables area for the last few years this was a place that I had been wanting to go for some time. Weekends is always packed and while there are many dining option in Coral Gables, I always ended up elsewhere. Driving by on a week day... More

Great place never fails to satisfy. Appetizers of meat with hummus and stuffed vegetarian grape leaves were delicious. Lemon chicken was well cooked and enough for two. Been there at night with belly dancer. If any complaints is that sometimes with the entertainment it can get a little loud. Good for business, family and couples.

This spot in the heart of Coral Gables has some of the best, most authentic Arabic food in South Florida. The owner is always present, making sure that everyone is having an excellent service experience. The lemon chicken with artichokes is the best here. Come by on Fridays and Saturdays for the belly dancers! Highly recommended!
