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.

Absolutely fantastic evening - we've not stopped talking about it since. The short rib sharing meal is incredible! Kevin and the sommelier (sorry missed her name) were brilliant and added to the experience! This is a must go restaurant in San Francisco!

Was a little disappointed with this restaurant. The pluses include great location and overall look of the restaurant. Bar was well manned. This is a mystery to me. Took forever to get two drinks. They weren’t even delivered at the same time. We were both sitting at bar thinking wtf?
Dining room experience was mediocre at best. Food was good but nothing memorable. I hate to give a not great review but that’s what I was expecting, something great.

Fabulous, creative cuisine with a definite Middle Eastern bent. The eggplant and lamb dishes were exceptional both in flavor and presentation. It has an excellent wine and mixed drink selection. It's a bit pricey but the service and food quality warrant the cost. I definitely plan to return with friends, especially if they are foodies.

Beautiful interior,modern but warm. Well dressed beautiful people abound but they do allow normal types in as well. Service was attentive without being cloying. Food was unique but would appeal to a broad range of palets . We enjoyed it so much we are bringing our adult children back next week.

It was a special dinner to celebrate my friend's birthday. We had the tasting menu and the food was absolutely amazing! All was delicious and unique but loved the beef short rib and sesame foie, the duck was a little tough. Would definitely go back for the food.
However, the waiter was below average with somewhat of an aloof/fake sincerity demeanor. He's very capable, just his mannerism didn't make us feel welcomed. The supporting staff was excellent, though.
Will go back for the food and hope for a different waiter!

Couple of girlfriends had lunch at Mourad. It was amazing! We shared several plates and all were exceptional with complex flavors. Several standouts include the chicken with olives (moist and flavorful) and the cous cous with browned butter, oh gosh the salmon was crazy good too. Honestly everything we ate was a hit! Highly recommend and am taking my husband next week after a show at SF MOMA.

Having been to Mourad about 8 or 9 times, I can't recommend it enough. It's our favorite restaurant in the city and the food is refined, but highly approachable and always delicious. It's also by far the best restaurant for high-end lunch with a lunch menu very similar to their dinner menu (minus the tasting menu option).

Superb ingredients thoughtfully and elegantly presented. Only drawback was they sat me at a two top looking directly into the kitchen when nicer tables were available. I guess they didn’t expect that we would spend $475.00

The food was very good and the waiter was helpful with food restrictions, but the service was very slow. It took 10 minutes to place drink order, another 15-20 to get wine, etc.

We really enjoyed the short ribs family style meal and found the white beans and the kale to be the better side dishes.

We really liked it. The food was really good. We got the red snapper la’ach it was more than enough food for two people. We have a lot to take home. They gave us three sauces with the la’ach but one of them was already on the fish so really just two extra sauces. We enjoyed the family style dinning. The food was really good overall.

The wait staff was very attentive. We really enjoyed our waitress. The booth was too low for the table height though it made serving ourselves a bit difficult/awkward. Felt like we were sitting at the kids table at thanksgiving. But it was secluded which we like. And the people watching was optimal.

Found this restaurant near our hotel, The Palace Hotel for a Saturday evening meal. My wife and I shared the olives to start and then shared the Moroccan duck appetizer, both of which were wonderful. I had the braised beef entree that truly melted in my mouth and my wife had the vegetarian couscous which was full of flavors. Too full for dessert. Recommend taking this restaurant in while in San Francisco.

Went with a friend and shared a couple of appetizers which, along with dessert, were the best part of meal. The octopus and eggplant appetizers were beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. We ordered short ribs from the family style menu, which I did not enjoy. The meat was very fatty and the squash was undercooked, as though it hadn’t been peeled. The menu included four sides, none of which were very interesting. The dessert was amazing, a large bowl of yogurt, in many forms, and meringue wedges studded with almonds.
