The Fez (Downtown Stamford, CT) - The Fez brought back memories of time spent in Morocco where I developed a love for Moroccan Chicken Tagine with olives and preserved lemons. The tantalizing tagine was served with couscous, potatoes and carrots. The caramelized cauliflower was especially delicious and simply served with raisins and toasted pine nuts. The spanakopita tasted amazing, and... More

My friend and arrived here for a casual girls night early one Tuesday night. First things first, the ambiance transports you to an intimate place you might imagine to be in Fez, Morocco. The decor is vivid and the ambiance relaxing. The waitstaff was professional, pleasant and eager to please. We found the menu to be very enticing, and ordered... More

Reserved a table for 3 on Friday night. Arrived on time and we were seated immediately. Three piece band was playing with the singing just a bit loud. We ordered a bottle of wine and three entries. We weren't rushed at all and it was a nice leisurely period of time when our food arrived. Band had stopped playing so... More

There are lots of options to eat in this portion of Stamford, so the Fez is easy to skip past. If you are looking for a cozy place with good Mediterranean food, this is it. They have a good mix of specialty drinks, and a fair selection of bottled beers. The "small plates" really vary in size. Some are enough... More

We were at The Fez to enjoy a band that was playing. Everyone at my table thought the food was very good....the service, that's another story!! Once our food was served, our waiter didn't even look at our table until another customer tapped him on the shoulder for us. Absolutely ridiculous!

My husband and I love The Fez. We always take out-of-town guests there. Food is delicious. But our favorite part is talking wine with the owner and ordering something not on the menu

My wife is Lebanese and we eat a lot of different middle eastern foods so I thought The Fez would be fun. Went here for dinner, sat at the bar and ordered 4 small plate items. It was good food but not great. The food was bland, lacking traditional spices that give the food its unique flavor. Even the desert... More
