Tucked on a little side street off of historic South Street, Marrakesh serves truly authentic Moroccan meals in a setting reminiscent of dining in Morocco!

Cozy middle eastern restaurant. 7 course prix fix for $25 each. Down an alley. Front door locked. Not the place you stumble upon. But we were glad that we went. Food good. Fun experience.

Haven't been here in years. Place hasn't changed. The multi-course meal was delicious and more than enough to eat. The price is amazing - $25 per person. Go with the right people (not everyone like to eat with the hands) and you will have an excellent meal and great time!

Cash only!! They don't take credit cards!! The place is decorated nicely, you feel the Moroccan culture. The food was sub par, trust me I'm Lebanese and I've eaten in a bunch of Moroccan places.

This place was wonderful for our group of co-workers. We had one delicious course after another with a glass or two of wine. The waiters were extremely attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. We were in a red room on the third floor and it actually made me feel like I was back in Morocco again....I highly recommend this... More

Had a birthday party of 10 at a 6:30pm seating: we called 3 times to confirm, and not once had anyone mention that this is a cash/personal checks only place...; we were asked to leave for the next seating at 8:30, so you only have two hours or else you are out...and if you are late, it shortens the time...

Group of 15 people for a birthday. We had the upstairs room all to ourselves and it was decorated Moroccan style with a couch like setting and gold tables for our meals. Starting off with cleaning our hands with the rose water and waiter handed out towels for us as a "plate" and napkin at the same time. We had... More

This is the best restaurant for any occasion. A girlfriend and I stumbled on it and were a little intimidated at first but the server sat down and explained everything to us. Everything is delicious. Do not miss out on this.

Marrakesh is an outstanding Moroccan restaurant hat offers a generous feast of a 7 course dinner for a very reasonable price. The food is authentic and outstanding (exception our case, the fresh fruit at the end was not the freshest!), The starter salads, especially the eggplants tasty, chicken bastilla was finger-licking good (everything is eaten with your fingers), the lamb...

A group of 17 celebrated a family members 50th Birthday., it was a fun experience and although I am not a fan of eating with my fingers or the Moroccan cuisine I was along with the family group. It was a delightful experience - the family ranged from 9 - 75 years of age so everyone was expecting something unique.... More
