Morrocco near Market

On O''Farrell, a block past the Hilton Hotel is a little slice of Morrocco with low tables, a belly dancer and gracious hosts. Warm water hand wash poured from a beautiful pot expertly over a beautiful bowl starts the evening along with mint tea. Hummus, veggies, bread, honey chicken, lamb and... read more

I took my Beautiful Bride here to celebrate our anniversary; I planned ahead and made reservations more than a week earlier, informing them it was our anniversary when I made the reservation. Not being from the area I only had the reviews to go off of, I have only been to one other Moroccan restaurant years ago and loved it.... More

To their credit, Marrakech was one a few restaurants opened on Christmas. They were overwhelmed and had a hard time honouring our reservation. They finally found a spot for us in the corner. The waiter told us that they were busy, short staffed and low on ingredients. That may have been the excuse for terrible food. The hummus was bland.... More

I needed some food late at night as my flight was delayed. I stayed at the hilton a block away. The area is sketchy at night as it is the tenderloin. They had a bouncer outside as apparently it's also a club. I got some food to go but the food was old and cold.

A friend had booked this restaurant, so we were unprepared for what we found there. Our waiter told us not to worry about the starters, we would get all of them (?), we only had to choose our mains. This was a bit confusing, but we went along with it, mostly as we were not sure if this had been... More

Lots of fun and interesting Moroccan setting with belly dancing and above average food. Great place to go before magic show that is attached to restaurant. Fun with family/friends.

This is a really odd restaurant. The service is really good. The food is just above average. The atmosphere seems authentic. And we thought the belly dancing was good... Then the dancing seemed to devolve into something else. I've been to Turkey. I've seen genuine belly dancing not done for tourists. But I've never seen men show dollar bills into... More

Four of us ate here on Saturday Evening, 12 Apr 2014. The setting and atmosphere are unique, and definitely have the feel of Morroco. The service is very good. The food was plentiful and very tasty, and the bread was particularly good. The four of us could not eat all of the food we were served. The value for the... More

After watching the magic show downstairs, which was just amazing, we decided to eat here for a little of a cultural experience. As you enter the room, it feels like going into an authentic Marrakech restaurant. The decor, music, and setting is genuine. We sat at a low brass table and the menu was what we saw often in Morocco.... More
