    Truly enjoyed this unique dining experience. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because I was disappointed that I could not enjoy my hookah while I dined. They have changed that up, but much to my dismay. Omar and Yusef were great. Thanks for a great time.

    Food was good. Service was slow. Never did the birthday thing even though I put it on reservation. When I brought it to their attention, all they said was sorry. I don't like spicy foods but can tolerate if I have water. I requested to have a container of water on my table. Waiter said he would bring me water whenever I wanted it. Didn't happen. Didn't give me the birthday meal free even though it was advertised on their website. After talking with the manager he fixed it. We were the first people there. Several more people came in--not a busy night (Tuesday) or maybe it's a late night place. The experience takes a couple of hours. The birthday boy doesn't like fruit and that was mainly what dessert was. Try it for yourself.

    They were out of everything we ask for. The air was not working on the Casablanca Lounge,waiter never bothered to ask us if we wanted him to turn on the fans that were in the lounge. It was a very bad experience and we were celebrating a birthday. They act like they were closed for lunch.

    The food and service were great. The valet service was a big plus, since the only available parking was in a strip-mall across the street. The only problem was that we had a 6:00 reservation, but they are not open until 6. We arrived 30 min. early and had to wait in the bar of the Vin Vie next door.

    I had been here a couple of times before and loved it. This last experience was different, they have kinda changed up the menu in the sense that now you either get an appetizer or dessert whereas before you got both. Don't think I'll be going back soon but in general, the food is still great.

    Dined on 7/22/2014
    I took my family to Imperial Fez for my husband's birthday. It was an amazing experience. The ambiance was exotic and beautiful. The belly dancing was intriguing. The service was great. The best part was food, though. Everything that we ordered was absolutely delicious. It is a family style restaurant that includes at least four courses; and each course is delicious and gets better and better. You will not be disappointed. It was a bit pricey for my budget, so this would only be a restaurant that I'd visit for special occasions.

    This is my third visit to Imperial Fez. Had not been there since 2006 when the food, service and entertainment was just outstanding. This time: service is good, the bellydancer was outstanding but the food was poor quality...bland, bland, bland and not worth the high price. The place also needs an overhaul...new decor and furniture etc.

    We went here to celebrate our anniversary. It was a different type of restaurant with a flair. I am tired of the same old "American" restaurant experience. Imperial Fez was anything but the typical restaurant experience. The food was quite delicious also. I didn't walk away feeling overstuffed and sluggish.

    I got a Groupon for their Casablanca Lounge. I didn't know it didn't include belly dancing, considering they advertised belly dancing everyday. Guess not for that area. In any case, the food and service were great. It was a lot of food for one person.

    We didn't know what to expect after reading the 'About' section. Eating with your fingers and taking off your shoes?? WT??? You are not forced to take off your shoes and they provide forks if you choose. We opted to leave our shoes on but didnest with our fingers. It was a great experience!! The dancer was amazing (there was a sword fire dance) and the service was impeccable. The atmosphere is dark and we sometimes felt like we couldn't talk but Imperial Fez is defiantly something you should experience.

    Great atmosphere be prepared to pay al la carte & my suggestion would be the lobster because the lamb is very fatty & grisly. Bring plenty of dollars for the belly dancer & the valet. All Cars Are Valet Only! Keep in mind u will be seated closely with others & hopefully they're friendly

    I took my fiance and her bestfriend here for her birthday. We have been wanting to eat here for quite a while only to be disappointed by the entire experience. The belly dancer was horrible and the food was not good at all. I actually sent mine back and it is rare that I do that. I will say that the steak kebabs were ok though. Overall, we will not be going back to this restaurant. Such disappointment after a long wait to actually make it there.

    The belly dancers were a hit. The food was great. We had a party of four. Only one item was a bit off - our friend said his chicken kabob was dry. Other than that, all courses were rather delicious. When the music was on, it was difficult to carry on a conversation, but the belly dancers made up for that easily. They were very entertaining. Our waiter, Muhammed, was attentive and explained things well. We'll be back!

    The service in the Casablanca Lounge was very poor. It took 30 to 40 minutes for our order to be taken. Then the order was wrong. The menus weren't taken back. We were given utensils late. It just seemed like the people that were using groupons got secondary service. I can't imagine that the people in the Imperial Fez main room got the treatment that we receive. We weren't the only patrons not satisfied.

    I wouldn't go back here even with a groupon. The drinks are tiny and expensive and not even top shelf. The food was average, the calamari looked like onion rings it was so big and breaded. The garlic shrimp was like eating put garlic. The chicken kabob was pretty good. The best part about the place was the belly dancers and the hookah. Our server was eating dinner 2 tables away from us when we first got there also, just kind of strange while we're waiting on our food and drinks but not that big of a deal I guess. Either way, not one of my best girls night out!

    We dined at Imperial Fez while in Atlanta on vacation. We took two 11 year old children. Imperial Fez was great! We were looking for something different, something we don't have in our hometown. This certainly fit that criteria! Our server was great about explaining the food & helpful in suggesting something the kids would like. It's not inexpensive, so be prepared for that, but the food, the atmosphere, and the entertainment (belly dancers begin at 7:30 nightly) was well worth it.

    We have come to the Fez almost every year as a special Mother-daughter date. We were AMAZED at the gluten free option--my mom loved it! The only thing negative was the music this time---the volume was fluctuating and then would cut off or go down low. I think there were some communicating errors with when the dancing would start and end, perhaps. Nonetheless, we'll be back for sure!

    Our work team wanted to have a fun dining experience and we certainly got that at Imperial Fez. It was a unique experience, with good food (though 5-course proved to be way too much food) and amazing dancing. Our servers were very friendly and fun, but the service was absolutely too slow - inexcusable considering how few diners were there on a Wednesday. We had to flag down our server to receive attention several times as she was spending time mingling with another diner and the belly dancer. And the kitchen took a very long time to send out the main course following the appetizer, and only 4 of 5 dishes were brought out. The 5th was not brought out to the table for at least 15 mins after. Good fun was had by all, but I will not go back.

    Pros: Great scenery, dancers are OK, servers were polite and attentive...they were more than happy to take a few pictures of us. Cons: Unless you feel like walking a few blocks...mandatory valet parking..but they have a mobile device card swiper so you don't have to tip with cash (which is good because there is no ATM nearby). We had bad seats, and couldn't see the dancers very well...our line of sight was blocked by several columns.
