“Don't waste your time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2009

Well let me tell you right now that you won't find any decent service there at the Fez at all. The atmosphere was good, very authentic. If you heard they do a 7 course meal 25.00 per person just know that it requires two people so really it's $50.00 for 2 people...nice catch huh? Not just that but the 7 course meal is just one plate of food per course that you and the other person shares. Definitely not worth $50.00. The drinks there aren't very good at all and they are ridiculously over priced. They add on gratuity just so you know and be careful what you get because they'll charge you $10.00 per drink and $14.00 for two tiny chick kabobs and little rice which is a rip off for the price...but what I thought was great about that place was the cute little wooden spoons for the soup in the 7 course meal. I would say if you don't mind spending a whole lot of money there for food and a few drinks then go ahead. Service is my hugest thing and that place doesn't have it. Other than that we all went to eat Lorenzo's pizza after wards and that was the highlight of the night.

“Never Going Back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2009

Sneaky, profit hungry, and just wrong!! I went with a group of 11 people to enjoy the "Weekend Special" Fez Feast...your typical moroccan outing. The menu is misleading..and the prices on the bill pop-up from nowhere. We were charged a 20% gratuity - as stated on the menu for parties greater than 5 - which is completely understandable to me, being a waitress, although should be the the guests choice to tip above 18%, according to service. On top of the gratuity we were charged a $105 clean-up fee..which clean up is normally a part of the job description for a waiter. Our grand total including some martinis and mixed drinks came to $650!!! The food came to $275..so the rest comes from some crazy place (not everyone was drinking). The menu is misleading...it doesnt mention the price of the hookah...just says "available upon request" The food was not very good..i could've made it myself..not an exaggerating! The fruit at the end is whole fruit. I love exotic food and countries, but i would have rather spent that money at a really nice delicious restaurant. My advice is to save yourself and everyone you know some stress and money and DO NOT go there!!! Please spread the word.

Good moroccan food. Dark inside and you sit on a couch and eat with your hands. The menu is essentially pre-set and you make a couple of choices of variation. Good location off South Street.
