I hadn't been here in a good while so we decided to go. Because their appetizers are so terrific, we ordered a few and decided to wait on any entree. We had baked kibbe, hummus, baba ganouj, falafels. The Almaza (Lebanese) beer is really good and goes well with these dishes. We split a vegetable curry but added shrimp, it... More

This restaurant has a nice, lively vibe, with happy, eager to please servers. Intermittently, there are belly dancers to entertain. We shared a Greek salad and hummus , in this cutely decorated Mediterranean restaurant , Both were very good. For dinner we had chicken skewered with rice and another chicken dish in a tomato base. Both were nicely seasoned and... More

I have been attending this restaurant every time I vist my Dad in Miami and we always love the food in this restaurant. We are Arab and it reminds us of our family dinners with my grandparents. I have tried almost everything on the menu and have really enjoyed all of it.

A Gables stable, this wonderful restaurant is consistently delicious. You can tell the ingredients are fresh. The owner is constantly circling to make sure all is good...for me a great sign that he is proud of what he is offering. We always have the hummus, the kibbeh, and the lamb kabobs. Prices are super reasonable. Even with wine, dessert and... More

The appetizers were extraordinary - falafel, kibbeh, hummus, tabbouleh, grape leaves ... For dessert, baklava ... Yum!!! We highly recommend the food but maybe consider take-out as there was no one in the restaurant so the ambiance was horrific.

I have been to the Maroosh multiple times and the food never disappoints. This last time, I had the friend ground beef filled fitteh. The sauces and pita were excellent. I had the mixed grill platter for my entree and the lamb was amazing. The service was excellent. The location is convenient, 2 blocks off of Miracle Mile. I will... More

Maroosh is a must for anyone who loves Middle Eastern food. Just a short walk from our hotel we decided to go for something we have not had in a long time since it is hard to find a good Middle Eastern restaurant let alone a great one. Maroosh is a great Middle Eastern restaurant. The falafel was the best... More

This place is home. We've been going for years. The owner is a lovely person, and every time we walk in he remembers the wine we drink with our meal. Amazing service and the food is always perfect!

Visited Maroosh for dinner on last minute decision to try something. Warm decor, and dinstinct family-owned feel. The falafel test - high pass, so good start. Had the gyro plate (okay) and lamb mousaka (good). Our pita bread was too dry, and our waitress disappeared midway through our meal. It was a little pricey too, otherwise nice overall casual dining... More
