It was not bad

Just finished dinner at Marrakesh. The staff were wonderful, very nice and helpful. The dancer was talented, and had a great personality. The food was good overall, I had the spicy lamb (not at all hot, but very flavorful. My wife had their best chicken dish...very plain.

This restaurant is in the Bell town area of Seattle on 2nd Ave and it can be hard to find parking nearby. After driving around for 15 minutes we paid almost $8.00 for two hours parking. Our reservation was at 8:00 pm on Saturday evening. We had to wait 15 minutes in the tiny entrance, crowded with other people waiting... More

Thanks for coming in and dining with us. Saturday nights are always our busiest nights and can be unpredictable when it comes to those that come in without a reservation. So we do appreciate you made a reservation ahead of time. As far as pricing, we believe that our 5 course dinner provides an incredible value at only $20. Very... More

Great food. Great atmosphere. Great service. What an experience! I visited this restaurant at the recommendation of a Seattle native! I'd never eaten Moroccan food before, and I'm so glad I did! The food is incredible. We had the 5-course dinner. The atmosphere is warm with tents, lamps, colorful cushion’s on the floor. The server comes out in traditional Moroccan... More

This is a really great place to get some good Moroccan food. The prices are very reasonable and the food is tasty! Service was spot-on and paid attention to our group very well. I make it a point to eat at this location every time I am in Seattle and am never disappointed!

What a fun experience for our family for New Years Eve dinner. We had never had Moroccan food so that was interesting, also sitting on pillows. The belly dancer added to a festive atmosphere.

I believe Marrakech is ranked rather low here (as of Nov 2014, 1245 of 4968 restaurants) and it deserves a better spot. It is definitely a place that I do not mind going for a second time.

After a tip and the reviews of the restaurant we went to this restaurant at the end of our holiday. Last year we celebrated our holiday in Morocco so we know how the food should taste. The soup of the 5 course meal was good even as the salad. The chicken and lamb tajine only got the flavour of cinnamon... More

I love sitting on the floor and eating food. The powdered sugar , cinnamon meat stiffed thing is my favorite part.

We were at the Marrakesh with 4 adults and 2 children...exposing the grandchildren to an authentic cultural event. The setting, food, dancing was just perfect. We had the 5-course meal that allowed everyone to have an entree of their choice while the soup, salad, and dessert was included. The spicy lamb dish was "bone licking" good and the lemon chicken...
