Food was very good; waitor explained dishes well but they definitely need more help with service; we waited a long time between courses, nobody came by to fill up water glasses; bread tray was not refreshed; nobody came by for a long time to ask about dessert-- we had to get somebody at the bar to help us;
Metered parking is also a problem

The ambience is soft romantic light emanating from bejeweled Moroccan lanterns. Lively Middle Eastern music, not overpowering but helping transform a lovely spot into an experience. Casual and knowledgeable wait staff including the owner and his family attending to all guests. While the cocktail menu selection was very interesting, incorporating spices and elixirs such as pomegranate juice, yet some were weirdly not tasty. Otherwise, the appetizers were very good and tasty, salad dressing delicious and overall a very nice experience.

Knowledgeable waiter. We enjoyed the appetizers and main courses. Delicious spices without being overpowering. Only one short rib in the tajine was disappointing for $30. Baklava for dessert was dry. Ice cream was very good. Get there by 6:30 if you want reasonable service. It gets very slow later as it gets busier.

A very classy nice restaurant. A warm welcoming, followed by an excellent service, with a lot of attention to details on order to please you.
I took at first a sardine, the beef couscous excellent. With that I took a glass of the Moroccan red wine. Somewhat surprising, it does not taste like anything I have already drunk, but I kinda liked it. No word to say that it was awesome.
The service always with a smile and very patient with us.
Conclusion, if you have the opportunity to go eat there, do not hesitate !

Fifth time there, first time a bit disappointed. Just a few days after New Year'sDay, on a Sunday, they have too many items from the menu that were sold out, with for example only one of five desserts available. food we chose was quite good however, especially the branzino. Service was spread a bit too thin to be fully responsive. But this day was abnormal: I'll be back!

Layout and design is appealing: overhead lights and sconces project interestintg shadows and add to the ambience. Appetizers were great: fromage cigar and the couscous salad. Chicken and meat tagine were both very good. Good wine list, reasonably priced. Vegetable tagine was lacking in spices (why do people think vegetarians want boring food??). Staff needs education on menu and coordination on serving a table.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable experience at Argana, especially due to the attentive friendly service from everyone there. We celebrated my husband's birthday with cuisine we don't have at home and everything was delish! The prices are reasonable for the NY Metro area although I think they should provide couscous with the entrees (especially with a tagine that is basically stew and needs to be served over something that'll absorb some of the sauce) instead of charging extra for it as a side dish. They found out it was hubby's birthday though, and comped us a yummy dessert with a candle on top! We will definitely return!

Lovely place - though it struggles a little between being intimate and romantic and being a bar scene (e.g., cozy tables but a tv over the bar). The food was excellent and the service attentive. As others have noted, it's a tad pricey for what you get, but really not excessive (maybe 10% over what you'd hope for the ambiance and quality). The wine list was very interesting, and the vibe a good one. Something for everyone.

First time there. Pre show dinner with another couple. Lovely ambiance and very welcoming, knowledgeable staff. Portions were modest for the pricey bill, so value was off. My husband ordered the lamb tagine, which we expected to be full of yummy moroccan spices and very aromatic. More on the boiled looking and tasting side. Side of grilled egglant was salty but nicely spiced. Harissa shrimp appetizer was a stand out and grilled octopus was tasty but small for $16. Would like to try again, but need to save up.

A confusing and disappointing experience. We met friends for a 7:30 dinner reservation. They pretty much gave us a choice of where to sit as the room was less than half full. We were basically ignored for the next 40 minutes when my wife finally ordered a cocktail. At close to 8:30 they finally took our order.

Our starters came out in reasonable period of time the. We sat waiting for our entree's and watching tables that had been seated after us get served. Throughout this we had a hard time getting our servers attention. At about 9:30 we were served dinner.

Based on other reviews I ordered the scallop tangine . The scallops were so over cooked they were like eating rubber. I should have sent them back but at that point wanted to eat and leave.

By and large our food was ok, not great. It's hard to tell if the kitchen was having issues that night but if this is indicative we wouldn't return.

They realized our displeasure and comped us dessert, which was ok.

One other negative. Surprised in this era that their beer selection was pedestrian mass marketed beer.

We greatly enjoyed all the time with friends, but if we wanted to eat dinner at 9:30 we would have planned it that way.

We would be interested to hear from others on what their recent experiences are.

The food is very delicious-very nice salads. The tagines are always a hit. Always got the vegetable tagine, this time I got the chicken which was really, really good. One of our party got a fish tagine and he loved that. Always end the meal with mint tea! The service is also excellent.
Would definitely recommend Argana!
