Amazing Marrakesh Moroccan restaurant, Seattle – It is an amazing experience. The food, the service and atmospher were great. We were 10 people having birthday party. We were seated in a tinty like atmospher. We believed that we were removed from Seattle to a different place. We took the 5 course meal and that was worth it. The soup, the salad, the Bastila Royale, the variety of main courses were amazing, and the desert and mint tea was a good finish. Don't forget the hand washing before and after the meal. At the end the price was so reasonable for the amount food and the royale service we got. It is worth every penny.
The service was outstanding, I recommend this place to all my friends and we are planning to come back soon for another gathering. I heard so many good things about Marrakesh Restaurant. Now I know why. It is great. See you there.
Thank you so much for the kind words. We appreciate your business and can't wait to see you again!
Please don't waiste your money – There are too many good restaurants in Seattle to waste upwards of $25-35 a person and at least 3 hours of your time at this place.
I went with a group of 8 on a friday night. We got there just after 7:30 and didn't escape until after 10:00. Now, I've had and enjoyed leisurely restaurant meals before, but there was nothing leisurely about this. This was just painfully slow, inattentive service. And the restaurant was only half-full, so no excuse there.
The manager came out with the hard sell to get the fixed menu family-style instead of individual entrees. His used-car salesman style of persuasion was the first hint that it was a rip-off, and so it was! The food was completely bland. Is it still Moroccan if there aren't any spices in it? The vegetarian option - couscous with veggies - sounded OK, but actually consisted of one plate (split between two people) of unseasoned couscous, flavorless blanched carrot, and some glue-y discs that were supposed to be zucchini. My meat-eating companion wasn't impressed with his dish either.
We waited at least 45 minutes after dinner for the dessert. In fact, two of the people in our group had to leave before dessert arrived - but rest assured, we didn't get their portions although we did pay for them. We received a baklava for my birthday and it tasted exactly like bad grocery-store baklava: dry and cold.
God only knows how long it took to actually get the check. We asked for it, but it never appeared, and a couple of us were already late to meet some other people, so we threw down a sickening amount of money and left our friends to deal.
I don't know if they prey on people who've never had Moroccan before, or maybe it's all about belly-dancing, but please, go somewhere else for your own sake.
unbelievable place in seattle – After searching for a place to host my saturday night birthday party we settled for Marrakesh Moroccan restaurant because of a delicious sounding menu, nice looking location and very reasonable event prices. We were sitted in the back room. And my gosh!!! You don't even believe you are still in seattle. The place will take you to thousand and one night. Sitting under a tent, cushions on the floor, low light and an amazing belly dancer, made this place look like we were really in North Africa. Our waiter was very very friendly and handled our large party with grace. The food was delicious (especially the powder sugar chicken). I had a great party night here and highly recommend Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant:)
HUGE dissapointment – Went with a large group -- waited half an hour for menus and an hour for drinks. The service was so bad it was almost funny. The food was not great -- everything basically tasted like it was drowned in the same sickly sweet sauce.Very very bad customer service
An Amazing Culinary Experience! – My best friend and I ate at Marrakesh while I was in visting her from Texas. We were nervous at first about what to expect, but were absolutely blown away by the atmosphere, food, entertainment, and service. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone that is up for a delicious and delightful cultural experience!
You've Got To Try Marrakesh! – This is one of the best restaurants I've been to in a while...the food was great, my waiter was fantastic!, and the atmosphere was perfect.
I went with two of my girlfriends after work so we didn't have to worry about parking (you'll want to think ahead of time if you're driving) - we got the couscous with lamb, the honey chicken, and a vegetarian dish that I can't pronounce, but did the whole 5 course thing (we all shared) - it was a great experience if you're into trying new things and different cultures (if you want a quick American-Italian meal, you'll need to go to Spaghetti Factory, this won't be your thing)!
The prices were reasonable (its not super cheap though) - our meal I think was $80 - and that was including a bottle of Moroccan wine. Our waiter was attentive and charming - all three of us will definitely be visiting again.
I would recommend this place if you want to try something new, interesting, good, but still affordable...
absolutly amazing – if your looking for something different and unique, this is it.
i was deciding whether to go or not for my birthday and so i did
this place is magnificent
the food was lovely and had that special...how i say... foreignness to it.
which is good because my friends are not that diverse
until they ate their food
also great for vegetarians my veggie friend came with and said wow this is great!
i was glad
i went Friday soo i recommend reserving a spot before you go
the dancer was great too. it was funny cause i told her i danced tooo with this dancer and she said really?
so i came up and we did a duo
fun, different place to go w/friends, – we ordered their feast option (maybe had a different name), but it had all the entrees chosen for you. i'm not THAT adventurous of an eater and i liked pretty much everything! i loved the bread, the cuscus (even though it was hard to eat w/your hands), the dessert and the after dinner sugary minty tea. i wanted to try it once only using my hands, but i think i'd ask for a spoon next time. I have no clue if it was authentic.
the belly dancing def. didn't last the entire meal, but it was pretty cool...except for the creepy guy who was tipping her a lot.
I loveeeeeeeeeee it!!! – This is a good date spot, unique food, comfortable seating arrangements, and entertaining surroundings. The food was enjoyable and the staff was very friendly. A good pick when you are tired of your norms and want a nice comfortable night out.
The best moroccan food in the whole state – My husband and I took my prim and proper parents to this place and we all had a great time. We ordered the "Royal Feast" and were pleasantly suprprised by how tasty each and every course was. The lentil soup was the starter--tender lentils in a creamy, spicey broth. Then the cucumber/eggplant salad was a refreshing change. The appetizer of meat and pastry was totally different than anything I've ever had before--sweet, yet meaty. We were then served 5 entrees and each was totally different--my favorites were the lamb/eggplant dish and the chicken/prune dish. Lastly, mint tea and pudding for desert. The server was very attentive to our needs (they even offered silverware, which we politely declined), all in an atomsphere that very much sealed the Morrocan experience. We'll definitely go again.
