Diner Reviews
  • "The food was excellent. It was slightly exotic but the blends of sweet and savory seasonings made for an outstanding dining experience. The service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was comfortable and fun. They even have a belly dancer. This was our first visit to Tangierino. We will definitely return many times. I recommend ordering from the Old World side of the menu."

  • "Great for a night out. The atmosphere makes it special. Loved the couches and nooks for groups of people. Nice cocktail selection and all the food was delicious! Wanted to try it all"

  • "Highly recommend for a romantic date night! I have been to Tangierino many times for dinner over the last few years, and each time I know I am going there I really look forward to it! The food never disappoints and the atmosphere is quite romantic. The decor and music is Moroccan with a modern flair and there is typically a belly dancer who appears at least once during your meal, which can be fun and maybe a little awkward all at once. I'm rating a 4 out of 5 stars because of our waiter. He wasn't that friendly with us, didn't check in during the meal to see how it was, and all he brought to us was wine and the bill. He watched from the bussing station to see that we paid, ran over to run the card, then bolted because his shift was over."

  • "We had a party of 6 celebrating a momentous family event at this wonderful gem we found. We had drinks and appetizers at the bar and the bartender was very accommodating to our various requests. Some of our party separated to go to explore the cigars and bar in the downstairs of the restaurant and they could have stayed the entire night had we not started to get hungry and request their presence for dinner! We all ordered a different dish from the menu and each had its own character and delicious flavor combinations that melded well. The tagines, both veggie and meat, were divine and full of middle eastern flavor. Along with the private booths and ambiance of the decor, one felt that they had time travelled to Morocco!"

  • "Unfortunately, we don't come to this place as often as we used to. The place is still amazing. Despite its distinctly ethnic food and decor the place feels and food tastes so homey! We ordered duck and several appetizers: b'stila, home-made lamb sausages, and ...raw tuna. Everything tasted great. Still, one of the best servers in Boston: knowledgable and attentive. Very exotic yet comfortable decor."

  • "We love going to this restaurant, the food is always interesting. Our waiter was very kind and helpful. Two items that are worth mentioning: it is hard to read the menu with the dimmed lights and the sitting can be awkward in the booths.... :)"

  • "Went with a friend specifically to catch some belly dance and am so glad we did. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The ambiance was awesome. As someone with a serious food allergy, dining out can be very stressful, but I knew right away they understood and took it seriously and were willing to adjust anything on the menu for me! That's rare! I've often been told just to get a salad because it makes their lives easier. Had one of the best meals of my life. It was so pretty I almost wanted to take a picture. Really talented belly dancer entertained us and we then headed downstairs for drinks and cigars. I know nothing about cigars but there was absolutely no snobbery - they seemed to really enjoy giving me an education."

  • "Great menu the waiter could have been been more engaging and helpful. Great ambiance and for a group it would be helpful to experiment and try different dishes. Make smaller sample plates for entrees?"

  • "Great food, great service from our server (upstairs). In the starters totally recommend the chicken in phyllo and shrimp. Fun going downstairs after our meal for Hookah, cigars, dessert and coffee."

  • "Love this restaurant!! Somewhat of a pain to find parking near by, but the food is well worth the search for a spot. Very generous portions! We always leave with enough food for a second meal for two people! Yummy cocktails too. Fun entertainment from the belly dancers."

  • "Having become foodies, we now decide to venture out to new restaurants without reading reviews. Tangierino was our latest choice. The experience was not a disappointment! The food was fabulous, the service impeccable. We will be back."

  • "Most awkward seat: a two-seater sofa that looks straight ahead at a large, noisy bachelorette party. Right away we asked for another table, but they said there were none available supposedly. The bus boy knocks over my glass of water. Water spills all over the place (not on us luckily) and the seat, which makes us have to relocate. Not a bad thing since I wasn't crazy about the seat anyway. Our entrees come, but no silverware is on the table. We take some from the adjacent empty table because we have no faith that they will actually come in a timely manner. Medium-well, is well done. I send it back. Still awful tasting."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Very good food. Belly dancers showed up a little too often. Appetizers were very small. Entree size was large. We went downstairs for hookah. Was intimate and not very smokey. Good air circulation."

  • "We visited Tangierino while on vacation and loved it. They offer traditional Moroccan cuisine along with modern fusion of several styles. Tangierino has wonderful small plates and appetizers with unique flavors and combinations. We had ground lamb in pastry, and a chicken dish to start. We selected the Short Ribs as the entree, and we're extremely pleased. Even though we split the entree, it was a LOT of food, so bring your appetite or several guests. The atmosphere is unique. Tables are shrouded in sheer curtains, and each setting has different furniture - delightful! Tangierino has an extensive wine list with excellent selections from around the globe. Mark-ups are reasonable, and bargains abound. Check them out soon!"

  • "Quiet, romantic, scene. Wait staff handles everything. New and old world menu both bustling with aromatic and vibrant flavors. A pleasing experience from start to finish. I miss how the bus boys used to wash your hands in rose water."

  • "The b'stilla was epic, as was the beef tenderloin. We got there at 6 pm so it was still a little early for a friday night but we prefer the quiet atmosphere and extra attention from the waiters. Anyone who goes should definitely try the sangria. We also went down to Koullshi lounge and had the hookah. So good. Definitely going there again."

  • "The night was overall a good night. The server was not very attentive and the food and the drinks took along time. Once our food came to the table every thing was good. I would go back but I hope the service will be better. "

  • "We really enjoyed our evening at Tangierino - the food was very good and service was very efficient. Because we gave a small tip to the belly dancer, she stayed at our table a bit longer than most. We had a very good time."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "One of the best interiors I have seen in all of Boston. You really feel transported to Morocco when you are seated in your private booth nicely decorated with authentic feeling tapestries. The Menu was nicely divided between "old world" and "new world" entrees. I dined with a person from Morocco and she was thrilled with the authentic presentation of the old world entrees. Great spot for a date, very romantic atmosphere."

  • "My wife and I went to Tangierino for our Anniversary. Being that our first trip together was a month in Morocco, I figured we'd try and relive some of those memories. I must admit, I was a bit nervous though. We've been to a couple "Moroccan" restaurants (one of which was ranked as an "authentic experience" by Zagat's) and none of them have ever really done it right. They tend to be too kitschy or just...well, not even close. That said, we were wowed by Tangierino the moment we walked in. It actually reminded us of a certain cafe we frequented while in Fez. On top of the spot on atmosphere, the offerings are well endowed. From traditional to French/Spanish influence, the food holds strong with the environment. Great spot! "

  • "This is a lovely restaurant. The ambiance is very cool, unique and Arabic/North African. Belly dancers sometimes get a bit too close for comfort, especially while trying to have a romantic date with my husband. . We've been here twice. The first time, the food was delectable. Second time, quite bland. Guess it depends what you order. But overall, it's a lovely time and great service. "

  • "Tangierino was recommended to us by a friend who knew we liked Moroccan food. We were not disappointed! We had a couple of the signature cocktails, a mango margarita and a spicy one with veggie-infused vodka served with blue cheese stuffed olives. They went deliciously well with the scallops starter. The menu is divided into traditional (old world) and modern (new world) dishes which gives you great options. For main courses, we got the old world style salmon tagine and the new world eggplant. We also shared a side dish of wild mushrooms. Dessert for us was tiramisu in honor of it being our wedding anniversary, as that was our wedding cake. It was light, but filling, and served with fresh whipped cream. We will definitely return!"

  • "First time at Tangierino but won't be my last! The food was fantastic - the blending of the spices, the yummy flavors - one dish better than the last -- I only wish I had the skills to recreate some of these dishes at home. Loved the feeling of the place - the staff were freindly and helpful... the belly dancer a teriffic addition to the birthday celebration. Just loved everything and can't wait to come back. "

  • "There was a fire in an upstairs apartment and we had to be evacuated. We stood in the cold for ten minutes. When we went back in we assumed we would get offered complimentary desert or maybe have something taken off of our bill. Neither happened. We went down to the hookah lounge and Phanny was our server. She was super friendly, fast, explained how everything worked. She was the saving grace of the evening. My friends and I agreed that we would return because of Phanny."

  • "Everything was good Except the service, we was waiting for the food over an hour. Also when we came into the restaurant there was a guy he was unfriendly at all. He tried to get rid of us We had a reservation at 9 for 2 people, but we came early so he told us we have to wait for 20-25 min we agreed then after 30 min he asked us "what are u waiting for?" with a frown face this was so irritating... I ignored him and talked to the girl who was standing next to him.. I told her everything.. Then the girl came and told us that our table would be ready in 5 min..."

For a regular sized guy, I couldn't really fit my legs under the table to slide my chair in.. I will definitely be back for the food though, just might have to sit at the bar."
