Another participant in the Toronto Summerlicious campaign wicked food, efficient friendly service, great ambiance. Well worth a trip back. The Duck comfit salad was very good, the roast lamb with couscous was simply divine, the meat melted off the bone. The Rice pudding was a great end of the meal. Good and varied beer list not large but covers a good range of flavours.

My friend and I recently went to Cafe Moroc for Summerlicious. I had the "cigars" as an appetizer and they were different, but pleasant. The salmon was well cooked. I was disappointed that the melon dessert on the Summerlicious website was not on the menu but the three cookies were really delicious. Eric was a wonderful waiter with great suggestions when asked. He was attentive but not in our faces.

The restaurant is a bit dark but our table in the window was well lit and really pleasant.

First of all, my party of three (including me) was going to be late- so I called in advanced to let them know and to hold my table. Upon arriving I find out they gave my table away and I had to wait for a new one to clear, which shouldn't have happened. Second, I went for summerlicious and when reviewing this restaurant thought it was all one place and that I was going to be in an awesome atmosphere. But I wasn't. when you first walk in, its crowded and like of feels like an awkward foyer stuffed with tables. I had a SMALL (barely fit 3 plates) round table pushed against a wall, it was very squishy and my friend on the outside kept getting bumped by all the people walking past. Beyond this room was the "cool" area, the atmosphere, music and decor, and the belly dancers. However this room is only for normal dining (i.e., NOT summerlicious) the website for summerlicious did not mention this or I wouldn't have gone. We did not get any of the cool atmosphere, or get to see the dancers. The food was okay, it wasn't amazing. The service was a mix, our initial waiter, a male, was very sarcastic and blasé, but after a woman kept attending to us, off/on and she was marvellous- friendly, funny and helpful, however overall the waitress/waiter barely came to our table to check on us. And thing is they didn't clear our plates before bringing more causing chaos at our tiny table. The drinks (alcohol) were expensive and meh as well. They could certainly mix them but I have tasted much better, they didn't have a designated bartender, the waiter/waitress would do it for you.

Overall it was okay, I don't know if I would go back, I wouldn't really recommend it. I would say give it a try and make sure you get the restaurant/room with the dancers rather than the weird bar/foyer.

I went several years ago on a girls night out. Firstly the food was just OK. Secondly it cost me almost $100 for my own dinner and 1 glass of wine - I was driving. Thirdly, because I was coming from Burlington to downtown Toronto I was a little late - I had no idea that they have 2 seatings a night and you only get the table for your seating then they kick you out. No lounging over the $100 dinner. The belly dancer was nice and she was trying to teach us but other than that, not interested in going back.

What was supposed to be a wonderful, fun filled evening for friends who had flown from five different countries turned into a massive let down. The belly dancer Sarah was rude and obnoxious beyond belief. One of my friends in the group was taking pictures after we had asked if it was okay and was told by our server Dominique yes, Sarah proceeded to shake her finger at us on two occasions telling us not to. She did not come to our tent as advertised but repeatedly danced passed us. It was only after management spoke with her about her dismissive attitude that she came over. By that time what was supposed to me a magical evening had been most effectively ruined by her behavior. Shame on her. Added to this, the food was luke warm, tasted bland and some dished simply tasteless. Most of it was not eaten. The bill with all of the add ons came to $684.00, much much more than we had anticipated.

With the exception of our server Dominique who was very good, charming and did his level best to redeem this place, overall a let down that is unparalleled. We are not going to be recommending this place to anyone.
