We ate at Fez before going to a movie around the corner, and the kitchen was very happy to rush our orders, even though it seemed that we were ordering everything on the menu! We really enjoyed the pizzets - two of us shared a chicken pizzet for appetizer, and then there were the wonderful roasted potatoes, and the chicken... More

Sitting right in the middle of the strip of Summer across from the Majestic Theater, Fez is sort of "hiding in plain sight". You almost miss it walking past, but once inside the atmosphere is great -- you might say Soho-y -- the food is terrific, and there's music multiple nights a week. The owners are very personable, and you... More

Food is excellent. All fresh cooked, the flavors are amazing. Down to the bone of the meat you can taste the marination and seasoning. Best wine/bar collection in all of Stamford in my opinion.

What a quirky little gem of a restaurant, tucked on little Summer Street. It has a fun atmosphere, the food is delicious and if you have a Gluten allergy, they are very accommodating. It turns into a night club after 10 pm so check their schedule.

My daughter just moved to Stamford and picked this place for her birthday celebration. We were there on a Sunday night. Enjoyed the appetizers of shrimp falafel and grape leaves. Shared the chicken tangine and the lamb shank. Food was good, but we didn't enjoy the evening because the music was so loud and we had to shout to converse.... More

We are so very pleased that you enjoyed your meal with us and must apologize for the volume of the music. We usually implement the use of something called a drum shield, which allows us to essentially ‘turn the volume down’ on the drums and in turn allows us to turn the volume down on the rest of the musicians....

The food was good, but the seating was uncomfortable and not a good value for the portion size. Only go if there is music or else it is dead and not festive for a night out.

We went for drinks this weekend - can't speak to the quality of the food. Drinks were well made & the bartender was great. She was very friendly & her drinks were spot on. I couldn't quite connect the live music that was there with a Moroccan restaurant - would have loved to see the belly dancing that night! Overall,... More

Went over the holidays and it was a strange experience. I thought the waiter was acting really odd. It was four of us ladies. I didn't love the food and felt it was overpriced. Hubby and I have been to Morocco recently and overall it does somewhat resemble the food we had over our week there, but the prices do... More

We are sorry to hear of your experience at our restaurant, we certainly do not want any of our staff to make guests feel uncomfortable. As for the pricing, we do our best and will take the commentary under advisement-indeed you are right Fairfield County CT has nothing on pricing found in Morocco, lucky you for visiting!
