Description: Be prepared to leave your shoes (optional) and your worries at the door when you dine at Imperial Fez! First things first, ask your hostess you want to remove your shoes, and get ready to relax and eat with your fingers (Silverware available at your table) this traditional Moroccan restaurant encourages you to do as the Moroccans do. As you settle into the benches and soft pillows, your server will explain the customs and traditions that they observe at this unique restaurant. To begin, your server will bring a Tass (a silver hand-washing kit) and gently pour warm water scented with lemon to allow you to wash your hands at the table, and will give you a clean towel to keep on your left shoulder. Your server will explained the menu and the order of the meal, take your order and your journey will truly began as Chef Rafih Benjelloun and his wife Chef Rita Benjelloun work on their culinary magic. At Imperial Fez, the "happy drink" is called The Marrakech. It's a fruity beverage of multiple spirits and juices that will undoubtedly leave you feeling just that - happy. Nightly entertainment starts around 7:30pm. The belly dancers bring energy and life to the quiet restaurant and complete your Moroccan experience! For anyone willing to go beyond the norm, an evening at Imperial Fez can be a full night of pleasure for the mind, the body, and the spirit. "I want them to walk away better than they came in," explains chef Benjelloun.

I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy sitting on the floor and eating with my hands, but the Fez is a lot of fun and the food is very good. I have been there several times in the past six months and it has not disappointed yet. The food is flavorful and plentiful and the whole experience is out of the ordinary - including belly dancers. The kebabs are amazing.

Great experience. Food was different but well prepared and very enjoyable. Eating with my fingers was a new experience but the tasty food made it worthwhile.

Incredible atmosphere, with beautiful entertainment, intimate seating, and tasty dining experience. This restaurant is a Buckhead treasure, that transports you to another world as you walk through the entrance and into the dining area.

“The belly-dancer was good but the food was excellent!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

An evening's visit to Morrocco without the airfare! Amazing, inviting dishs with spices that you may or may not recognize. Every bite is a pleasure..Love the atmosphere, but sitting on the floor on pillows was authentic but not very comfotable for us...

“Imperial Fez”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The place has been around for years and is a tourist trap. Food isn't very good. Server said nothing when I added a tip to the bill that already had 20% service charge on it. Lucky that I caught it before he ran it through. Go to Tantra next door.
