I discovered Marrakesh while in town for a conference last year. I had to come back with some first-timers this visit to Seattle. The service was great, and the food was amazing. The "standard" appetizers of lentil soup, Moroccan salad, and b'stille were all amazing. The b'stille (savory chicken in phylo, topped with icing sugar) sounds weird but tastes amazing.... More

Excellent customer service and delicious food. Great and unique ambiance! With rugs everywhere and fabrics covering on the walls. My husband and I enjoyed the unique experience of Moroccan food, starting with washing our hands on the table, eating with our fingers and helping to gather the food from the plate with bread. The menu is set up with five... More

This place is about the whole meal experience, not just food. From the beginning with hands washing to the end with rose water in the hands.. The food is absolutely amazing.. The flavors are delicious.. The place feels a little bit small, but I guess it's part of the experience...

I was looking forward to this meal. Four of us went there and decided to order a variety of food. The waitress was very courteous and placed us on the sitting mats. We thought she would sit the big (fat) one on the taller sitting mat, but she didn't notice his size, which was hard to miss. I ordered the... More

During our recent visit to Seattle, our most enjoyable meal was here at Marrakesh. The restaurant has an internal decor I haven't seen before. The appearance is as if you had entered a large tent. Instead of conventional chairs, there were cushions and sofas. Ok, the look is traditional, but my back and my wife's back were hurting by the... More

The atmosphere is so unique and the food is always very delicious! I love the Moroccan blend of savory and sweet. I always get the Moroccan feast, which is for groups of 4 or more and is listed at $21 or $22 per person, but really worth it! You are totally stuffed and happy afterwards. They wash your hands in...

My wife and I were in town for a few days before our cruise to Alaska. We had never had Moroccan food and decided to give Marrakesh a try. We were not disappointed. For those first timers, be prepared to eat with your hands. I'm sure we could have used silverware, but we wanted the full experience. Our service was... More

The food is amazing and I recommend the lamb rouzia. Lamb is Kosher but always best to verify. The dinner is a 3 course meal so you get plenty of food and the price is decent. There is also belly dancing and the dinner is family style. The bastilla is excellent and can be made without meat for vegetarians. Good... More

My coworkers and I decided to try the place for the food and cultural experience. It started on the wrong foot. My coworker used an online app to make a reservation but left no return contact info (email / cellphone) to avoid unnecessary spam and the host remembered the his name once we showed up and was a bit rude....
