Diner Reviews
  • "The food was very tasty and in abundance. There was even a belly dancer."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Very attentive servers and helpful. Belly-dancer was very good and entertaining but I wasn't expecting an Asian looking one. I was expecting someone with a moorish look. The wine list is not so extensive but you should try their Moroccan wine; it goes well with the food. Although the interior is a bit drab; you do get the Moroccan feel."

  • "If you are looking for an experience and not just dinner, it is a fun night with good food and good service. You should just be aware that all the options are prix fixe, but there are different options."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I can sum up my review in three words: Eat at Marrakesh. We ordered the Chef's Special and were treated to courses of soup, salad, chicken and meats, a veritable feast which left us stuffed and leaning back on our sofa cushions. The belly dancer, aside from being friendly and entertaining, offered a way to work off a little of the meal by teaching diners the basics of belly dancing and encouraged us to try and mimic her moves. See my full review on Yelp for more details."

  • "This is what you were hoping for in the moderate price range. The decor is genuine...low cushioned seating, traditional carpets and tapestries, regional music, and intriguing artwork. The food is varied...your tastes may run to one entree or another but all of the food is authentically flavored. Enjoy!"

  • "Go for the outstanding food and service, warm and inviting ambience, and the belly dancer. There were four of us and we picked the main course from 4 choices and all of us shared soup, salad, appetizer, main course, tea and baklava. Even the bread was delicious. I traveled 70 miles to get to the restaurant and I already have plans to return. If you love food, this location is not to be missed."

  • "This is a pleasant dining experience. The wait-staff is very attentive. The food is above average, interesting and filling. The ambiance is fun, unusual for the Valley and would be a great place with a family just for a fun time with good food. The cocktails were vaguely original but well executed."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The whole experience was wonderful. We went on a Monday night early and were the only table there. The service was excellent, stall very friendly, answered all our questions and checked with the chef when they didn't know. When we said the chef was to be commended for the delicious food, he came to the table and spoke with us personally. Very talented belly dancer gave us a private dance (we were the only ones there) LOL"

  • "When the waiter put the food on the table in looked wonderful and we were hungry so we started right away eating. First bite tasted good but there was something else in my mouth besides food, it was a piece of long hair!!! My wife wanted to walk out but it was our 20th anniversary so I tried to make the best of it but my wife was not happy. The Manager apologized and got another plate and that was the end of it. We got to the end of the dinner and there was not a greeting for our anniversary. We really lost our appetite because of the hair and did not eat very much and had asked for the leftovers to be wrapped up but when we got home we noticed there was food missing, they ruined the night for us and we will never go back!!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Haven't been in a while and for good reason. The food was ok. The bread and bastilla were embarrassing. Price is right. Service was only fair. Waiters put plates on tables, but not in front of the diners, so we reach across the table to pick up our plates and put them in front of us. C'mon you guys, make this a festive dining experience, as Moroccan dinners should be."

  • "I love this resturaunt! The food is amazing as well as the service. I take every friend I meet here when they want to eat real quality food. I can never get enough of this place"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Food was good and the belly dancers did their thing. A little confused about who our waiter was. There was some long gaps without anybody coming around to check on us but overall the experience was worth the while."

  • "Had a fantastic time at Marrakesh. Food and service were excellent. The belly dancer was fun, too. A great night out!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The hostess was exceptionally gracious and caring. However, the wait staff spoiled it for me. Sat for 10 minutes without even a greeting. Had to get up and ask for water. We were a group of 4 and felt mostly ignored. They refused to separate the billing, which caused more problems for us trying to sort it out. The belly dancer was entertaining and the food is very good, when they get around to bringing it to you. There was a wedding party in the next "room" - open walls - so it was extremely noisy until they left."

  • "First date Service & ambience were excellent Kabobs were over cooked., could not cut with a fork Dessert and tea was very good Belly dancer was interesting & nice"

  • "I first discovered Marrakesh way back in 1981 when I was 6 years old and my Dad (who had actually worked in Morocco back in the 1960s) introduced me to Moroccan food. I loved it then, and I've loved it every time I gone since (approx. 10 visits over the last 33 years), including this last visit, wherein I introduced an old high school friend to the place. Love the atmosphere, love the belly dancers, love the bastiya, love the quail and rabbit dishes. Shukran!"

  • "I liked the vibe and service but honestly food is not real Moroccan food. it was Americanized and just like other Americanized food everything was super sweet. It was a good experience overall but I wish food has real Moroccan spices not sugary."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I chose Marrakesh to introduce my friend to Morrocan cuisine because I knew she was going to love it, and she did! I went there expecting to eat with my hands, but I was pleasantly surprised when they provided forks :) It was great that there was a belly dancer when we were there. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone."

  • "We were there for lunch, and it was a quiet hr. It was only me and my wife. The manager was the one that tended our table and was super nice. I personally liked that i did not looked at the menu, he just asked me what we liked and made a "Cheffs Speciall" meaning we tried a bit of everything from the Menu. We had entry, salad, soup, appetizer, main course, dessert and hot tea. The servings were very generous and we had an long and enjoyable time 2.0hr meal. All this awesome food for $90including tip. I was really happy with the whole experience. Definetly recomend it"

  • "We had our annual law firm office party here on a quiet Sunday. They provided us with their best and most comfortable room and attended to our every whim. Our group lingered there past their closing hour but they never rushed us. The food is first rate. So what if Dar Magreb closed. Marrakesh is warm and friendly and they do Morroccan food just as well. Everyone on the staff treated our employees like honored guests and special. It was also nice to see they had a filet of sole option for their main courses. They need to develop a unique Moroccan vegetarian dish, but that is a minor quibble."
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "Marrakesh is good place for a a group or couple to have a relaxing meal with lots of courses to try. We went on a week night, It was not very busy or noisy so we can talk comfortably. The decor is Moroccan with coach seating, Please note that the chairs are too small for the average person. not very comfy when you are staying for awhile.So go for the coach seating. There were 5 in our group. Everybody loved the salads. The chicken pastry was tasty but not suited for the no carb friends. We tried the quail, rabbit and lamb for the main course. Everyone loved the quail, the rabbit was a little dry and the Lamb was too sweet for all of us. Overall it was a good experience and I will go back to try some of the other courses."

  • "It was pricey for the food! Service was good went for birthday occasion expecting more of it belly dancer only danced for a short period of time and in the end they over charge and included their own tip they messed up on my check and had to go back to to take care of their over charging mistakes! Will not go there again"

  • "Party of four, we were looking for something new, all have lived in the area for years, just had never tried it. We loved it, Wait staff is great explaining the process and menu. We would all go back, especially with a large party."

  • "First time here. The waitstaff is great, especially considering how loud the music can be at times. The food was amazing. This is a great, fun atmosphere to bring a date or a group of friends."

  • "We were celebrating a birthday with family. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good. My husband was not comfortable with any of the seating but the rest of us were very comfortable. Very enjoyable evening."

  • "I first went to this restaurant in 1980 and 33 years later it's still one of the top 5 restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The food, service, atmosphere and everything else about this restaurant is always way above par. I have never had a bad experience with this restaurant and hope to be able to visit for 30 more years!"
    Dined on 8/21/2013
  • "The food was fabulous. The service - exceptional. The experience - memorable. There was way too much food for two people! My favorite, to my surprise was the Bastilla Filo dough stuffed with chicken, eggs and almonds baked and covered with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Very interesting combination but was delicious! The serving felt like it was for at lest 4 people. We went early for dinner so did not get to enjoy any belly-dancing but I'm sure that would make for a more memorable evening!"
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "The food was very tasty and exotic for my family and me. The only problem we had was navigating the menu. The waitress was not very clear about the dineLA menu, partially a language barrier and partly an attitude. The busboy, Eddie, was delightful. a real hardworking guy, quick to acommodate and always with a very friendly smile. Belly dancing was pretty mediocre, but it was a Wednesday night. Food was really very good. Best food in the beginning of the meal, getting less good as the courses went on. Beware: Morroccan wine was almost undrinkable!"
    Dined on 7/24/2013
  • "A very interesting dining experience, complete with washing our hands with rose water. We went there for Restaurant Week LA and it was extremely worth it! Food was fantastic, very ethnic tasting and portions are generous. Decor was pretty, and the belly dancer was good as well. Service was prompt and attentive. Definitely a fantastic experience!"

  • "Marrakesh is a great restaurant - I have been there a couple of times and have always enjoyed myself. It can be a little loud -- and maybe too cozy for some (close quarters), but the food excellent! Service this past time was a little off -- I think because they sat a few groups all at once in the same area -- so, there seemed to be some pacing problems. And the atmosphere makes it seem as if you are no longer sitting in the middle of Studio City off of Ventura! It's great."
    Dined on 7/17/2013
  • "I'm not too keen on sweet tasting food and since I dined here during dineLA week with a set menu, most of the food on the list was sweet so that was unfortunate. The appetizer was chicken stuffed in filo dough and dusted with sugar and cinnamon! That was definitely an experience for my taste buds and not in a good way, but my husband liked it so it's all about preference. The Lemon Chicken was the highlight of my dinner and I quickly gobbled that up as I was thankful to finally have something tasty, phew! I must say though that the service was impeccable! All the waiters tended to our needs and not once did we have to ask for more water. Everyone was friendly and helpful, I'd probably come back just for the service alone."

  • "this was a really depressing experience. It was so bad it was hard to believe. Warm wine of really poor quality for $9.00 a glass? This place is a dinosaur."
    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "While we find that Marrakesh has changed over the years, it is still a value priced Moroccan dining experience. The first course soup is excellent. Second course salad served with bread is delicious, but over the years the portion size has greatly diminished. I personally love the eggplant in this trio. A larger portion for four, please!!! Pastilla is the next course, tastes like dessert but is chicken, everyone loves this! Our favorite is the Moroccan honey, date/prune lamb - like M&M's, it melts in your mouth. The fish that came with it was so incredible, tasty. The chicken was moist and flavorful. The belly dancer WOW's the crowd, even little girls were dancing with her. It is a fun night and always meets our expectations."

  • "While a little bit pricey, you won't be disappointed and you will go home quite satisfied. The food is delicious, the service is very friendly/cheerful and attentive without being obtrusive. Decor and ambiance is fantastic."

  • "Having just returned from a trip to Morocco, I wanted to take a good friend out for a Moroccan meal. We had a Sunday dinner at Marrakesh and both enjoyed it very much. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was tasty and plentiful -- very much like meals I had eaten in Morocco. The decor is a bit tired and the low chairs and benches are not entirely comfortable, but these were minor issues. I would happily go back."

  • "The waiter said there was no menu when I clearly saw one on line! It was very expensive We weren't prepared for that since we are college Students it was 35 per person we were all planning On 15-18 the food was ok but the belly dancer was nice"
