Delicious!

We shared hummus, taboule and mousaka (sp?) - everything was good, but the mousaka was fantastic. Rasonably priced. Service effective and unobtrusive. Will go back.

I went with my husband for dinner. We loved the decor of the restaurant. The service was amazing. Our waiter was very careful with our orders. We had several appetizers. Our favorites were Foul Medamas and Mahamra. For main dishes my husband had the lamb (He really liked it) and I had the Mediterranean Fish Filet. The fish was OK... More

Having had a day or 2 in Miami once a year for the past several years, we have gone to Maroosh for their appetizer combination each time. We highly recommend this. They have a good selection and they are delicious. This year, having realized that we have never had a regular meal there, we went back to have one. Even... More

If you are expecting the typical gyro, this is not your restaurant. It is served in a taco shell and is made only of a slightly flavored beef, not lamb. The tzatziki was watery and with no garlic or mint. They brought out a plate of olives and veggies, which were tasty, the hummus tasted average, and the Merlot was... More

This is one of the best place in Miami to find quality Mediterranean food. The labneh is phenomenal. The staff is always so nice. The place itself is very beautiful and there is an upstairs area that you can reserve for private events. I keep coming back here for delicious Lebanese rice and lamb.

WOW. Not really into mideastern food but the choices at Maroosh was great. Their meats were tasty and tender. Their appetizers could be a meal in themselves. Although we ate late, food light enough that it didn't trigger my reflux. Will hope to go back soon.

The quality of the food is very good. However the service leaves a lot to be desired. We had to ask several times for our drinks before we got them. They are polite but very slow and appear a little disorganized. It is still worth a visit.

A work colleague and I went here for lunch. We had the fried Kibbeh, Baba Gahoush and I had the Shewerma. The kibbeh and Shewarma were perfect. The Baba Gahnoush was very good to just a little more grainy that I am used to. The service was excellent and warm. I will definitely be going back.

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
