  • "Excellent food, better service, very nice ambience, friendly crew. We will back soon."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This is definitely a favorite of mine in South Beach! The menu is interesting and reasonably priced for fine dining in Miami. We love the Lobser couscous, Bastille, dates, lamb tangine, everything is wonderful! The staff is always friendly and helpful! Now with the outdoor seating it's a great spot on Española Way."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a terrific meal at Fez. I let the restaurant know when I made the reservation that we were celebrating our five year anniversary and when we arrived, they seated us at the best table in the house and provided us each with a glass of champagne. The food was great - we enjoyed the lobster couscous, scallops, ceviche and dates. On top of that, Fez offered the best customer service of any restaurant I've experienced in my three years living in Miami (a city where good customer service is hard to find). I'll definitely go again!"

  • "My boyfriend was raised in Morocco and it really brought that childhood feeling back. If I can recommend anything it would be to try everything but definitely end your experience with their famous tea! The tastes are exquisite and the reviews are true!"

  • "South Florida is privileged and fortunate to count Fez among its restaurants!! This is truly a great find. Fez is at the end of charming Espagnola Way. It serves marvelous authentic Moroccan fare that is obviously prepared with great care and pride. The food is very fresh. Staff is gracious and accommodating. Be sure to try the exquisite Bastilla, as well as the delicious ceviche type salad; utterly refreshing and tasty. The decor is great: stylized, modern with a Moroccan air of course. Very well done. Muy acertado! Comfortable seating and very pleasant atmosphere. Nice bar. They had the movie "Casablanca" playing on mute. Good vibes!"

  • "A very good Morrocan restaurant in South Beach. Must try the Lamb Belly, is a fantastic dish. The service is quite good and very pleasant non intrusive waiters. They assist you, if you wish in navegating the menu with great suggestions. The food is outstanding."

  • "Loved it. Food was amazing. Dates with lamb bacon blew me away. Feta with heirloom tomatoes was perfect for a summer night! "

  • "Amazing food. And Spectacular service!!!! And now they have liquor and outdoor seating?! You truly can't go wrong with choosing this restaurant for dinner. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Because it is a new restaurant, most of it's dishes are underpriced. Don't be deceived if it's not as busy as the other restaurants on Espaniola Way. The food is phenomenal, even comparable to fine dining. Blown-away by the steak tartare, grilled octopus, and scallops. Even the $28 bottle of wine was great. At $18, they served the cheapest hookah on Miami beach without compromising on quality. Wonderful wait service. I highly recommend you stop here for dinner on any night."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Great food quiet atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle. Can't wait until they get their full liquor license in May 2014!"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Amazing fresh and warm pita! The humus is incredible and so is the spicy red pepper almond spread, skip the eggplant spread, yuck! Service is impeccable, definitely felt taken care of. Great location on espanola way but away from the hustle and bustle of the main street where all the restaurants are. The vegetable couscous was delicious as was the sea bass. I would say skip the chicken tagine dish because the sauce was just not good, preserved lemon of some sort and I was not fond of it at all."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "At first my husband and I were a little wary. The restaurant is on boisterous Espanola Way but it is one block down and very quiet. We were worried because it was not full like the other restaurants. However, due to the excellent reviews on yelp we stuck it out and are very glad we did. The food was excellent and decently priced for the value, unlike at many SoBe locations. The chick pea, eggplant and roasted red pepper spreads were good (we are cynical Lebanese). The octopus appetizer was just as it should be: fresh tender octopus cooked perfectly. The scallop appetizer had a little too much espuma, but was okay. Our entrée was the branzino, which was perfectly cooked and just what we were craving."

  • "We loved the food our first night there that we went back on our last evening in Miami. We definitely loved it!!!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "I had the lamb shank tagine and it was absolutely delicious. The meat was melt-in-your mouth tender. My SO had the lemon chicken tagine which was also delicious. Some entrees come with no sides so be sure to ask before ordering."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "First time in Miami, used Open Table reviews to chose this location. Did not disappoint!! On the quiet end of Espanola Way. Great for a quiet dinner away from the noise. Amaizing food and Great Service. We had a quiet dinner and then enjoyed the chaos of Espanola Way after we had a quiet dinner."

  • "Great food, service and venue at the quiet end of the street."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "A great alternative in Española Way. Most restaurants in this part of South Beach are nice for the ambiance but not renown for the food. This is a great location to eat in Española way, but not risk ending in a tourist trap."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Good selection of reasonably priced wines added to the delicious preparations served by an attentive and cordial staff."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "We were in Miami Beach on Valentine's Day, and Fez's Moroccan cuisine made for a memorable dinner: The movie Casablanca was projected on the wall all during our dinner. Located on Espanola Way, Fez was quietly busy. We were happy to see that the menu offered a wide selection of cold and small plates as well as large entrees (tangines), because we like to try new things. Four small plates proved plenty for two of us. Not all are Moroccan; we had the foie gras (well presented), the duck confit in phyllo (nice but too much of it), the grilled octopus (needed a little more flavor), and the lamb belly (our favorite). The food was very good and I'd like to experiment here more! Service was attentive but the dishes came a bit too quickly."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was second time at Fez. Don't know when I will return. The menu is too limited to encourage frequent visits. I appreciate keeping menu simple. But, perhaps a daily special would help with the variety."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed our dinner ver much! They do have a liquor license now, so we enjoyed some tasty cocktails! We started with a delicious trio of pureed delicacies like pepper, hummus and eggplant...oh so yummy! For a main course we enjoyed sea bass and lamb shank...we ordered roasted veggies on the side - a really great choice! We hardly had room for dessert but we ordered the chocolate moose and I am so happy that we did! I also suggest ordering the tasty mint tea...beautiful presentation and mild! A memorable night with the black and white Bogart/ Bergman classic as entertainment!"

  • "I've eaten Moroccan food in France, US and Morocco. The food served at Fez is truly the real deal. Right now, if authentic food is your goal, the is the place. Unfortunately for these guys, they are having difficulty navigating the permitting process for sidewalk dinning, liquor permit (they do have beer and wine) and advertising in general. As a result, the place was almost empty (albeit a Monday night) which was really too bad. The food was awesome. I hope they last long enough to resolve their bureaucratic issues because this restaurant stands firmly on its food. BTW, ambience sweeps one away to Casablanca."

  • "Amazing modern moroccan food. Authentic yet updated. Beautiful and fun small dishes. The octopus is the best I ever had!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "This is our fourth trip back to Fez on Espanola Way. And they continue to amaze. I had the Chicken Tagine this time just to try something maybe a little less special than the Seabass or the Lamb Shank. But the Chicken didn't disappoint. It was delicate and flavorful and just as much a treat as the other entries I've had on past visits. We had grilled octopus for an appetizer and the scallops. All great. Parking was easy in a little valet lot at the corner of Pennsylvania and Espanola with a short quiet two minute walk to the restaurant. I continue to struggle to name a restaurant in Miami with better food. Cant wait to go back and selfishly hoping they open another Fez but in the Grove."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The food was horrible our server did a nice job I didn't give service a 5 star because of the host/ manager who gave only one table attention all night he never came over to ask how we were doing until he found out I didn't have not even the first bite of my food ...even though he was present on the floor for the entire time focusing on one table ....other than that service was good ...No to the food!!"

  • "Very nice place, great decor, service and food. The foie gras was really good and generously served. The chicken tagine was perfectly cooked and the mint tea was like a journey in morocco."

  • "A nice peaceful dining experience in contrast to Miami club-music-as-background typical. Had an oasis like effect."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The Fez is a little bit off the main dining street in South Beach, but don't let that deter you. It was absolutely awesome! The Chef is Moroccan and the food was delish. Besides the food, one of the most fun parts of the restaurant, is watching old movies, which Morocco is featured, that project on the wall behind the bar (no sound.) While we were dining "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," was on the screen. What a hoot. The movie was in color and was made in 1944."

  • "Service was the best. Lamb belly to chicken tagine delightful. Great assortment of tasty items on the menu for Moroccan food fans. Would recommend to a friend."

  • "Fez is a great neighborhood gem off the otherwise touristy strip of Espanola way. Fez is the ONLY Moroccan restaurant in Miami so don't miss it! My husband had never tried Moroccan food before, and was very pleased. We shared a refreshing heirloom tomato salad with feta and a unique mint dressing. My favorite dish was the Bastilla, made with duck confit and with just the right touch of sweetness and cinnamon to make it memorable but not overpowering. The chef, from Casablanca, came out to explain to us that Bastilla is a dish traditionally served at weddings. We also had the lamb shank tagine, another excellent dish, wish vegetable cous cous. The service was warm and helpfui. We enjoyed the Moroccan mint tea and flan. We left happy!"

  • "We 've enjoyed dinner at new years. Every course was a treat! You can taste that the chef uses great quality and fresh ingredients. Especially the lobster on couscous and the panna cotta desert with fruit was excellent with balance in different flavours! The lobster sauce served with the seabass was a bit too salt for us, so we left a few drops unlike the other courses. Staff is very friendly and adapted to our wishes! We sat very close to out neighbours, but still we've experienced a romantic dinner for two. And there plenty other seats to sit further apart from other guests. We liked that the place is at Espanola way, place to be in South Miami Beachh, but not in the first most crowded block, so the noise wasn't that bad."

  • "We were excited to try this place after all the positive reviews. We really like Moroccan food after a great vacation there recently and were enticed by the comments that the food is very authentic. Unfortunately our experience was bad in every way. The service was confused and inattentive and it took an hour for the first appetizer to arrive. The food that did arrive was underwhelming at best. The octopus was literally inedible, while our other dishes ranged from OK (beet salad, lamb's belly, bastille) to pretty good (the Merguez). To their credit, they were apologetic about the service and gave us a discount on the bill. Given all the positive comments, we're hoping that this was just an off night, but it was all around BAD!"
