Marrakesh Costa Mesa Ratings and Reviews
We have been to the Studio City location for many times going back over 30 years and always enjoyed the food, service and entertainment. Since Studio City has been closed, we decided to try out Costa Mesa taking our out-of-town guests. The food was great, if not better. We loved Bastilla and Lamb with cous cous. The service was wonderful. The belly dancer was very entertaining. Our guests could not stop talking how good everything was. We loved it and will definitely go back.
Wonderful venue for special occasions with many guests. The private room's design and orientation is conducive to allowing guests to interact (as opposed to feeling fixed to a seat at a long table like other restaurants with private event rooms). Music was soft and great for hearing and conversation. In short, experience felt like being in the comfort of our own home (with all the benefits of a restaurant). Highly recommended overall, and especially for large parties.
We went on a Thursday night for my roomate's birthday. The food and service was very good. We were disappointed the belly dancers did not perform that night though, my roomie was really looking forward to that. Should have called first to confirm if it was a dancing night.
Overall service and food was ok except the chicken kebab was undercooked.. I also put a note on my reservation that I'd like special dessert or something for my husband 50th birthday but I don't think that anyone got the message..
if I ever want to eat Moroccan food again I'd try a different place
Marrakesh is in what must be an old warehouse that has been magical transformed into a tent village! The colors and textures of the decor match those of the excellent food that was brought to our table. The servers were attentive, polite and knowledgeable. Noise volume increased significantly when the belly dancer came out; she was not in your face but certainly good for the eyes, and very professional! Very nice evening.
My wife and I go here for special occasions. When we have special company, we also bring them along. It is always fun, great food, and a top-notch dining experience. The belly dancers are fantastic and I'm sure don't get paid with they're worth. Highly recommend!
It had been many years since I had been, used to eat at the original on pch as a kid in the late 70's. Seems like some of the uniqueness is gone, brighter lights , no costumes, food was mixed with poor temp and ok. Brought some friends to share the experience and was a bit let done
When you enter Marakesh Restaurant, you have entered into Morocco without having
to fly there!! The atmosphere, the tented ceiling, the excellent and polite staff, all add
to the ambiance of the restaurant.
Prior to eating your meal, a silver bowl and pitcher are brought to the table so your
hands can be cleaned before partaking in the meal. Utensils can be provided, but on
some items, it is nice to eat in the traditional way too.
The Traditional Feast which was ordered, was truly a feast of many servings and
they were brought out at various times, allowing you to truly enjoy each presentation.
I can hardly wait to go back and enjoy a meal there again. During the week it is quieter
and very restful.
The food was outstanding. For the price, there could have been sides. The flavors blend perfectly. This is a better place for rowdy groups than for a couple on a date. There will be times you can't speak to your guests because the music will be turned up for the belly dancer. Don't be surprised when they bring you a basin to wash your hands in before your meal.
