Waited 30min to order drinks and every bottle of wine we ordered was not available. 45 min to get bread that was burned. Almost 1.5 hours to get food. Service was almost non-existent. The room felt run down, the bathrooms were disgusting. Men’s room door would not close and faucet was falling out. Flush handle in women’s room was also falling off. Cannot fathom how this restaurant received the reviews it has on open table.

My group had assorted diets, meat eaters, vegetarian AND vegan, and everyone was exceptionally pleased with Marrakech. We were there for hours, left stuffed and happy. Highly recommend.

We were the only customers in the restaurant - and yet, they seemed unprepared to have any customers. For example what Moroccan restaurant would be out of couscous? I asked for a club soda - and it looked like they had to send someone out to buy a bottle of it so that they could serve me. The chicken was dry and the rice inedible. I have never submitted a negative review before - but this one really warranted it!

Went here with my wife on a Saturday night. We had an 8:30 reservation. We got there at 8:40 and were immediately seated. The restaurant was almost completely empty, with maybe 2 other parties at this fairly large restaurant.

We both ordered the pre-fix 7-course dinner. Overall the food was average. Nothing stood out as either great of bad. Both the chicken and lamb dishes had some pieces of meat that were perfectly tender and some pieces that were badly overcooked.

Our waiter was great, but the service was incredibly slow. It took about 20 minutes from the time we ordered before we were served bread. It took another 15 minutes after that for our first course to be served. The entire meal took a little over 2 hours from the time we ordered until the last course was brought out. Its nice if you plan for it, but make sure you plan most of your night around this meal.

Took our 12 year old granddaughter there and had a very nice meal. Large group of young people came in and made it quite noisy but it was quiet before them

My wife & I went here on a Sunday evening, and we enjoyed our Moroccan dinner very much! The food was delicious & plentiful; the service was prompt & friendly; and the 7-course prix-fixe menu was an excellent deal. We hope to return on another night when there's belly
dancing. I'll just mention three things that could use some improvement: the restaurant was chilly; the recorded music was a bit too loud (although it was very good ethnic music from the region); and the cocktail & wine prices were on the high side.

The food was fantastic, the ambiance was very cozy, and the server was funny and engaging. Every single thing we had was delicious, but I would recommend the spicy shrimp appetizer and the lamb or chicken tagine.

Good dinner. I liked harira soup. Couscous that was served with lamb was very good. Next time in Washington DC, this would be our first choice restaurant.

The restaurant was dated and the restroom was dirty and out of toilet paper. A few of the food items were good like the vegetables and chicken pastry. The main course of lamb and chicken were so terrible that no one at our table of five had more than a taste. The service was great and they kept on top of everything. We were extremely disappointed in the entertainment expecting a few exotic belly dancers in beautiful costumes, but getting one girl in a less than lustrous costume although she was a nice girl. Not worth the long wait for her to perform. Food was expensive and they added mandatory 20% tip on top of total and 12% tax. I would not go here again and not recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful traditional Moroccan decor, tasty food, excellent customer service. Hadeel our server, greeted us with a smile, made great menu recommendations, and was all around a fantastic host. We had the Marrakech Salad, Mango Martini, Lamb Tagine and Lamb, Chicken and Merguez Sausage Couscous (combo). Everything tasted great. Marrakech provides good value for the money and a cozy ambiance. I highly recommend.

Moroccan food is my favorite, and i was introduced to it by the original Marrakech in Las Vegas. Seems to be the same menu, but like they're reheating things previously prepared, and this on an early (6 pm) Saturday evening. Reheating the chicken bastilla resulted in burning the filo dough, and the lamb shank, while well cooked, didn't have a very in - depth or complicated prunes and nuts melange with it. The tapenade served with bread at the table was awesome, but child habe comne from a great jar. I finished every but of it. I may try the cous cous next, and go when the belching is happening later. Its a cute neighborhood and i found street parking around the corner. They also told me the hotel next door (Palermo?) usually allows parking space to be rented for non hotel guests. Probably a great place for dates or foodies to meet and share new plates. Moroccan food is awesome.
