Good food and very gracious,
Good food and very gracious, nice people. They have put a lot into wonderful food preparation and making diners feel welcome. The pace is very relaxed--they do not rush you to turn the table. Their tangibles are very, very good. Their wine selection, although limited, are very good and pair well with the menu items. We've been there 4 times and we will keep coming back.

Delicious food and friendly service
The service was friendly and personal. Their wine selection well chosen. For appetizers, we had the clams which were delicious. For entrees, I had the scallop pasta while my friends ordered the chicken and lamb tagines. All were appropriately sized and well flavored. The food menu had more of a Moroccan than French influence but all in all definitely worth a repeat visit with friends with discerning palettes. =)

Great undiscovered Moroccan
We visited Fassia prior to attending a lecture at the San Mateo Event Center...very convenient to the venue. Quiet, lovely restaurant with delicious Moroccan food. Hostess/server was charming and solicitous, but there should have been another of her, so service a bit slow. Food delicious and intriguing. Many varieties of tagines, Moroccan salads and Moroccan "Pinot Grigio"...quite good. I'd definitely go back if I was in the neighborhood, and would travel there if I wanted a good meal with friends in a quiet, relaxing setting.

Excellent food from Morocco
We had the dips and the fried cheese and both were excellent. The Tajine and the lamb with couscous was great. Fork Tender lamb. Freshly baked warm bread. Great feel at home service. Please go and have a great meal here.

Food was very good. Authentic
Food was very good. Authentic Moroccan food.
The waitress was a bit disorganized but very friendly.
Service was slow which is fine usually but we needed to be somewhere.
There were only 4 parties to be served , 2 with 2 people, 1 with 4 & 1 with 5 who had just come in.
Had to leave without our coffee.

fabulous Moroccan food especially if you want to try the real thing (cuisine from fez) the owner make you feel at home with her warm hospitality and very good service, . the food come out very well presented and very tasty because the chef owner is always in the kitchen. I love the décor and the music. they have good selection of moroccan wines. very inexpensive prices for the quality of this charming place we will definitely go back to try more of the menu dishes.

Great Moroccan Fare
Seems like really authentic Moroccan food (but what do I know?), and not dumbed down for American taste, as I am afraid some San Francisco Moroccan-style restaurants may be. Our server, the owner/chef's wife is from Morocco and guided us through the menu and wine list - actually several very good wines from Morocco included. Help keep this place going strong as there are probably not a lot of Moroccans in San Mateo, but plenty of on-street parking and delicious food.

Delicious food with very interestin
Delicious food with very interesting spices. Good wine selection and incredible desserts. For a Friday night it was not 100% booked (maybe because it is somewhat pricier). The ambience is nice but not really special, could be a little bit cozier for my taste.

Tagine Treats Tantalize
We started going to Fassia when it was a French Moroccan restaurant called Cafe Tradition. While we enjoyed the French menu items, we were always drawn to the Moroccan tagines. Now that Fassia is Moroccan only, the tagines are prominent and delicious. There were five in our group and we all chose a lamb dish (lamb with prunes, lamb with couscous). But we also each were interested in the B’Stilla Fassia, a wonderful phyllo dough pie stuffed with duck, scrambled eggs and moroccan spices. We ordered this dish as an appetizer to share so that we could still have our lamb dishes, which did not disappoint.
Dinner at this restaurant is comfortable and relaxing with pleasant service.
