    Food was fantastic. We ordered the Mezhi Mix and all the kebabs were tender with great flavor. We opted to skip the show this time, but we encourage you to reserve a seat in advance! They perform every 730pm and it looks like a great show with prefix menu.

    Everything was phenomenal. My only hesitation in giving this place a perfect 10/10 is the handling of dietary restrictions. I made the res weeks in advance and someone in management told me that the dietary restrictions would be taken into consideration by the chef. When it came down to seating the server seemed surprised at the restrictions and when the food came out the gluten free stuff felt like it was an afterthought. My partner has an allergy nightshades as well and we're lucky the menu wasn't riddled with tomato or pepper but that could have been annoying had the prefix menu been more nightshade heavy. Outside of that it was magnificent, the food is beyond delicious, the atmosphere is simple yet sexy, the staff was friendly and professional and performers are incredible. We will be coming back for sure.

    I celebrated my birthday with a group of 8 here, and we loved our experience. We did the 4-course tasting menu, and had a few bottles of wine as well. The thing I loved the most about the dinner was the pacing. We spent a solid 3.5 hours at the restaurant and never felt rushed. They brought each course out at the perfect pace for our group, and allowed us to really enjoy and appreciate each course. We loved the atmosphere in the restaurant, and the food was top notch. I especially enjoyed the bread course, and the dessert. The bread was soft and fluffy, and served with a trio of dips. For dessert, we had an incredible baklava, and my group also surprised me with a medjool cake. Both were so good. Berber is one of the more underrated restaurants in the city in my mind. I couldn’t have been happier with my birthday experience.

    What an intimate yet titalating evening from the crafted drinks “that you could actually taste all 7 ingredients” to the decorations, the back cozy Moroccan speakeasy w-stage & entertainment, the creative host that got to know each celebration of the evening, true refined yet filling food, the SHOW, then being offered rose water to cleanse my hands at the exit!

    I felt like it was way more expensive than it needed to be. Paid 54 dollars just to get in gratuity tax etc. I have no idea where that money went to. The show was interrupted but the workers and the food was not spaced out well. I do not think it was worth all the money.

    If you come, you should come for the show. It's entertaining to eat and watch a live performance. You LL be in a dark room with loud noises where the doors will be closed during the performance with about 40-50 other people so keep that it mind.

    I go to Berber time to time when I want to get good comfort food with entertainment. Owner Borhen is super nice and accommodating. It’s all about hospitality! We walked in with regular reservation asked for table inside with entertainment he made it happen for us! Service was outstanding Carly was waiting our table she was extremely attentive gave us a great recommendation on the wine to pare with our 4-5 course menu. Lots of delicious food. Lamb just melted in the mouth. It was just 3 of us we were over satisfied with quality and amount of food. Entertainment was amazing, talented performers. We will be keep going back. Beautiful ambiance. Highly recommend!

    Unique experience of a dinner and a show. Three courses, three brief (5 min) shows. All appetizers were outstanding. My main was underwhelming, however I was already full by then. Desert was fine. Shows were spectacular but brief. Noise level could have been lower. Place is beautiful, well situated, restrooms are nice, service was impeccable. I recommend it for very special occasions. It is pricey. Also in the prix fixe, you don't get choices, unless you have dietary restrictions and call two days ahead to arrange.

    What a fantastic experience! I booked a table for four people for the dinner and show since we had friends coming into town. Although the price was a bit steep, it is well worth it to attend this unforgettable evening. The performers came around to all the tables to introduce themselves to us and many thanked us for coming out for live entertainment. This really added a personal touch to the whole event. The show and dinner are well paced. We started off with some bread and various dips, then there was a performance, followed by a delicious meat pastry, and another performance, and so on. The lamb stew was absolutely to die for, and it was only bested by the fantastic dessert. We ordered two rounds of drinks, first vodka then tequila, and and we all agreed the tequila drink was better. Highly recommend as a special event! There were birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and all sorts of celebrations the night we were there.

    I booked a reservation because I hadn't celebrated my birthday properly in nearly 10 Years. My entire group was an ethnically mixed group of moms of all ages who were in dire need of a night out. AND let me say, our experience at Berber was the most stimulating, intimate, tantalizing play on senses we have experienced in a long time. The culturally rich menu and altogether romantic and down right sexy aesthetic of the venue was all encompassing. The performers were not only beautiful to the eye, but their performances were exhilarating and enticing, absolutely wonderfully flawless. They were also pleasant as every single performer introduced themselves to every table at the start. Aside from that the staff was amazing, friendly and welcoming and also gorgeous. The entire look and feel of the venue itself not only made you feel you were in a another world, the design from bottom to top made you feel classy and royal as the chandeliers and decor gave a feel of custom elegance. The food was exquisite and serviced in traditional Moroccan form, sharing of plates brought people closer and made the experience, encouraging the intimacy of serving one another. The the drinks were deviously strong and delicious. Needless to say, all of our pallets figuratively and literally were stirred by the experience. It as amazing, I recommend this venue to everyone and thank the entire staff and all of the performers for truly making our experience one of a kind.

    Berber is truly an amazing experience. I booked the dinner show for myself and a friend from out of town. Every dish is so perfectly delicious and I highly recommend the wine pairing. It was really fun to try wines from different parts of the world. The dinner show is also amazing. It’s perfectly paced between the courses and the performers are INCREDIBLY talented. The service was also impeccable. The servers were attentive, and there were lots of special attention to detail, down to the rose water they give you for your hands at the end of the meal. 10/10 would highly recommend for a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion.
