Two couples shared about half of the 15 or so tapas choices and they were all tasty. We got seconds on the cassoulet and especially liked the blue Hubbard squash and the lobster fritters. Too bad the tapas are not every night!

Along with the Chicken and triple Duck, we had a very fine dinner in Central Square. With easier free street after six, and modest parking lots charges, a very good restaurant near to the local theaters and clubs is a treat compared to downtown Boston. We enjoyed this meal with reasonable wine prices and plenty of time for the 7 pm show time. The charcuterie and cheese plates made fine starters and the one dessert we split was a fine and light way to finish the meal.

We chose this for a "date night" meal. In general, it was a good experience... the food was good, the service was good, the ambiance was good. It was not spectacular... there are perhaps better places to go for those of us already in a car... but if you're in/around Central Square, it is an excellent choice.

Food: The chowder had a bit too much black pepper, overwhelming a lot of the other flavors. The unorthodox lasagna was very tasty, albeit a little oily.
Service: Big points to the hostess who noticed I was toying with my glass because a crumb had fallen in... and offered a replacement drink.

Dined here in early October, 2013. The service was very nice. The food was delicious and well prepared and the menu was inventive... though I'm not really sure I saw "Morocco" in it. We had great fresh oysters, a beautifully prepared chicken, good blue fish and wonderful deserts. My only complaint/qualification is that the atmosphere is just blah. It is a strange sort of mish/mash fern bar (I'm told it was once a Burger King). No coherence, no charm and a bit on the loud side. Considering how good the food is, the atmosphere/decor seems so mismatched and charmless. But you can live with bad decor so long as the food is good... and the food and service was very good. Recommend a reservation... at least on weekends.

Sophisticated and inventive food in a neighborhood restaurant with a hip vibe. We dined here last night with an out-of-town friend who was hankering for seafood. And, boy, were we pleased. Try the seared scallop appetizer for tender, sweet, and perfectly cooked lovelies that are accented with a fresh herb pesto and fried capers. Then go for the swordfish with the smoked paprika sauce and leeks. Again, absolutely fresh and perfectly prepared. The wine list is deep and the restaurant is a tad noisy but we'll be back soon!
