We had a great time. The restaurant layout is nice, and we had a great table overlooking the kitchen. The service is very attentive and friendly, really top notch. We got the tasting menu and beverage pairing which was almost all outstanding. The only things I didn’t love were the duck from the tasting menu (just not wild about that style of preparing it), and the ribeye which I felt was a bit over sauced. This is just my opinion of course. But we had a wonderful time and would recommend it to others for a special occasion.

Think the bloom is a bit off the rose at Mourad. My husband and I first went here a couple of times when it opened - a very "happening" place, great service, pricey food but unique and delicious enough to be worth it. We took out of town friends there for dinner on Friday night and it was a bit of a disappointment. The decor still stuns but we were able to change our reservation at the last minute from 8 to 6:15 on a Friday night - our first sign that it wasn't the impossible reservation it used to be. We were seated at a table for four in the middle of the DR with two empty large booths on either side. We asked to be seated there (for more comfy seating and a bit more quiet), the waitress had to ask her manager (really?) and came back and said they were reserved for special occasions. I said we had a reservation . . . but to no avail. About an hour later, two young men very casually dressed sat in one of these large booths and the other had a family with a small child. Special occasions? Uh, no. The service was fine but the prices are extraordinary for what you get. The menu has such a large selection of foods you've never heard of, we found it hard to even choose one appetizer we thought we'd eat. Wound up sharing the whole chicken ($75!!!!) and the short ribs ($145???) with the sides. Dinner was certainly yummy but for these prices, I'd pick Boulevard every time. We won't be going back to Mourad any time soon.

Waiter was rude; main course was very small; we waited 45 minutes to be served; I left hungry. Paid too much to have that experience. We wanted 4 appetizers but the waiter didn't want to serve all at once. We wanted all 4 at the same time. He became argumentative. He was consistently rude throughout the night, e.g., I said "I think we're ready to order". He then looked at me and said "what do you want", in a snappy tone. I had to took a double-take at him to see if he was serious. This was his tone all night. As for the food, it was tasty but the main course was a sized like an appetizer - very small. And, we waited 45-60 minutes for the main course, on a relatively slow Tuesday night, and only 2 of us.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, CREATIVE NOUVELLE MOROCCAN CUISINE. Elegant environment (not fake Moroccan kitch). Several rooms. Reimagined traditional Moroccan cuisine--the duck bisteeya alone is worth the trip. The short-rib steak melted in your mouth and the sides were delicious. Not cheap but at least great value for the $--other restaurants in SF almost as expensive and no where near the creativity, service, ambiance and great food!

We booked Mourad to celebrate my 65th birthday.
It was our first time at this restaurant for our party of four. The menus had a birthday greeting to me—a lovely touch.
The menu was varied and one dish more interesting than the next. The family style snapper was amazing and although our server suggested that it might not be enough for all four of us so we ordered an extra entree. As it turned out, the fish was ample for four. The extra lamb entree we ordered however, was disappointed small being made up of only four surprisingly tiny disks of lamb—appetizer-sized for sure.
The eggplant appetizer and the gem salad were excellent as were the desserts. This is an elegant place to celebrate a special occasion!

I am dreaming of the beans... everything was so delicious, but oh my, those beans! Stellar cocktails for the adults, and the teenagers were able to have a fancy mocktail drink along with us. Perfect for a foodie-teen's birthday celebration with family.

Waaaaaaaaaaaay too stuffy for a San Francisco restaurant. The food was delicious but we were uncomfortable with the service. Pretentious is an understatement. We enjoy good food and wine and experiences, but I felt that the hostess and servers took themselves entirely too seriously. There is a way to be service oriented and be genuine - this felt like a Service caricature.

We got snarled in traffic that didn't move and called to let the restaurant know that we were running late. They were so gracious. The dinner was excellent, and the service was lovely. It was too noisy to talk easily among the four of us--we had to lean close to the person opposite to hear him or her. The sommelier was knowledgeable, patient, and a good educator! However, I would suggest including some less pricey but quality bottles of wine. I know restaurants make much of their profit from the wine and cocktails. However, the one we had, while okay, was not outstanding and was pretty expensive.

The food at Mourad is Devine.

The service was overwrought.

For example: move me out of the way while I’m speaking with my dinner guests once or twice to accommodate silverware setting. Ok. Move me out of the way 3 times for silverware setting, put your armpit in my face 4 times while you wipe the table down in addition and not at the same time I’ve been moved for something else (it didn’t need cleaning because in 2 cases only one person had a first course and then again only one person had dessert(m) now you’ve annoyed me and made the e peri eve unpleasant for the whole table. Who also suffered through this clown-like display of over done service. Recap: I was moved 3 times, arm-pitted and wiped down 4 times, each time while interrupting the conversation at the table. Not to mention, water, wine pouring, e planning how to read the freaking menus. Really?? Do people not k ow that appetizer means small bite before the main course? Label it small share plates in the next section and stop the. Instant interruptions.

The food was amazing, as usual. The service is insufferable. Terrible because they are trying too hard. Be natural. Don’t armpit me in an attempt to wipe the table needlessly for the 3 time when it doesn’t need it. And everyone in the restaurant was getting the same wipe downs and arm pits. Ugh.

Get out of the way of your own service. And all 5 stars. It’s too bad the food is e loosed by overcooked service shenanigans.

The incredible food was overshadowed by awkward service. Our waiter told us that everything was meticulously crafted in order to get Michelin stars, and when someone did something like move a fork, or request that an extra glass was removed, he was offended that we did not know the order in which things were meant to happen.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on January 25, 2018

Was super excited to try Mourad. We had the tasting menu. It was good, but didn't wow us. It may have been better to order off the menu than to do the tasting. There weren't a lot of the Morrocan flavors brought into the dishes. In addition, some of the courses had some overpowering fruit pairings that made the dish almost unsavory to us. It may have just been our preference, but we had lunch at Campton Place the next day, and they did an excellent job bringing Indian flavors into the courses. I was hoping for that from Mourad.

Maybe it was work day, but the service was mediocre. The hostess didn’t offer to take our wet coats from the rain until I asked. The first complimentary course came to our table, and I had to ask to a plate so we can eat the food off of. We got the tasting menu. Honestly I wouldn’t get any of those dishes every again. I don’t understand how this restaurant got their Michelin star?
