This 3.5 Bauer rated and three year running 1 Michelin Starred Restaurant is a follow up to Mourad Lahlou's Michelin starred Aziza. Mourad is a modern interpretation of a cuisine deeply rooted in the past. Our food pays homage to those roots, showcasing the rich and vibrant flavors of Morocco in new ways that harmonize with the fresh, local, artisanal ingredients, and the spirit of innovation of Northern California. Mourad is located in the historic Pacific Bell building in San Francisco’s South of Market and Financial Districts. The contemporary design seamlessly blends the Art Deco building with steel accents for a setting that is both modern and inviting.

Really good experience and food was excellent, but pricey. Wines very expensive and single glass pours a little light, although selection was good.

We were there to celebrate my mom’s Bday. Our waitress Anne is amazing. She introduced us to the tasting menu and also talked with the kitchen to customize a special menu for us. Food was absolutely delicious and we both loved every course. i highly recommend this restaurant!

Until the time of being presented the check, Mourad exceeded all expectations. For a party of 4, the restaurant added a $250 service charge without notifying any member of our party at any time. At the time of paying the check, I did not question this because I didn't expect such an error to be made by an established restaurant, but the next day I checked Mourad's website and found no mention of this either. I emailed them a copy of my check the same day and requested an explanation for the charge, but have not received a response as yet, which is surprising. Needless to say, I will be more careful next time around.

Mourad is elegant. Beautiful flower arrangements grace the corners as well as prominent entries. There is a huge staff bustling to bring food and drinks. Don’t miss the lamb, the cous cous, and the puffs for dessert. Come with $$$$.

I had such a wonderful experience!!
My server Elizabeth was a sweetheart! She was very kind and I appreciated that!
I came there for lunch and ordered the chicken dish along with the sesame & pomegranate refresher!
The dish was absolutely DELICIOUS....I loved the grilled Cappellini onions and the beautiful saffron couscous! But I have to say the three sauces that came with the entree won my tastebuds! If I had the opportunity, I would buy those sauces from Mourad...seriously!! 😉
I posted pictures on Instagram of my experience ( the_happyepicurean)!
Two of my friends who saw the pictures want to visit now!
I will definitely be back and this time try the dinner menu. Thanks so much!

Very attentive service. Lamb was overcooked, though everything else on the plate was great; a shame. Burnt honey wings were savory/sweet perfection. Smoked salmon was interesting. Duck in pastry shell was very solid. Plating was very nice; often felt higher quality than the food. Airy and spacious dining room.

The food at mourad was great however the service was very cold and lackluster . Our server Adam was awful he did not even introduce himself when he first approached the table. At this price point I was very surprised by the service especially because they do have great food.

The service was exceptionally poor!!
Totally unexpected in a restaurant of this caliber. I would never recommend Mourad.
It took at least 40 minutes to be served our appetizers and while waiting two waiters brought us the incorrect food. Then at least 40 minutes wait for the entree. A lunch of appetizers and entrees took over 2 hours - most of the time just waiting to be served.

We six adults ordered the family entrees of beef short ribs and lamb shoulder as well as 4 appetizers. the Appetizers were small portion but tasty so not good value. However, the beef short ribs were outstanding in taste and large portions and lamb shoulder excellent. We have been to many 1 to 3 starred Michelins, and this beef ribs are as good as any. Highly recommend. Restuarant was full on a quiet Sunday evening, shows very popular with locals, as we are.

We came to Mourad to welcome a new colleague and his wife to my husband's firm. At these prices, for a regular night out we would probably just come for cocktails. We love Middle Eaztern and Moroccan food. Booked a 6:00 pm table. Service was impeccable except for a delay with the first round of appetizers. We sat upstairs by the window in an elegant booth We had 5 appetizers including the best oysters I've ever had, the lamb, scallops, and couscous. We ordered ala carte but you can also order family/Moraccan style but it takes an extra 45 min. Food was all excellent I did feel like the atmosphere was too formal for the Bay Area, dare I say funereal... Not sure if it's the colors on the walls (everything is very dark, wood, dark grey, black, dark everywhere), or maybe the young staff trying a bit too hard, or they need a little music in the background...But if you are looking for a special place for interesting, delicious and beautiful presented food where you can talk and also quietly celebrate, this is the one.

Wonderful food and service....our waiter Justin explained the menu for us, as it was our first time, and we were grateful for his suggestions. The scallop dish was fabulous and my husband had the lamb....delicious. My only wish would be to have the couscous vegetarian entree available in a smaller version as a side dish....I would have loved to try it! We will be BACK!
We did not notify the restaurant that it was a special anniversary for us but our waiter saw us exchanging gifts and inquired...he made the date very special by sending us a plate of wonderful small chocolates, etc. But of course we had to order the donuts too!

The food was amazing, service super polite and knowledgable waitstaff. However it took 3+ hours for them to serve the tasting menu. It's understandable it is meant to be served slow and we did ask for some modifications based on dietary preference. However, our order was not taken until 35-40 minutes into arriving at the restaurant and the first 15-20 minutes of that was no contact at all. They weren't having a busy night, there were many empty tables. Not a good experience at this price point.
