Moroccan
Escape to a hidden oasis in the heart of San Francisco. Recognized in MICHELIN Guide's Bib Gourmand 2021 and 2022, our modern Moroccan menu offers an aromatic dining experience to fully immerse the senses and simulate a night out in the exotic Mediterranean. With noteworthy dishes rooted in traditional North African culture, we combine age-old cooking techniques and imported spices with a modern California flair.

Inspired by the warm hospitality of the aboriginal Berbers — also known as the noble, free people — each meal is sensory and satisfying, from the first to the last course. Ideal for parties, private events, date nights, and gatherings for all types of celebrations, we combine our love of showmanship and community for all walks of life to enjoy modern Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine.

    We took a complete chance on booking the Sunset Dinner experience and show during our recent trip to San Francisco and we were not disappointed! The care and communication of the wait staff, host, and performers was top notch. The food was outstanding and filling as the three course meal hit every high note. Our dinner was a trio of dips, bread, soup, lamb tagine, and a pistachio gelato served overtop of baklava. As great as the food was, the entertainment was the highlight. Flamenco, belly dancing, singing, the aerialist were all superb, and the violinist stole the show - having his own performance but then accompanying everyone else. Phenomenal!

    I brought friends to celebrate a friend’s birthday and from the moment we walked in I could tell it would be a perfect evening! We started with a bottle of bubbly from @beauxtender after we were checked in by @stara_. Dinner and wine pairings were delicious and the entertainment fun, uplifting and magical. Clearly the performers enjoyed sharing their talent. We attended the Nightfall show. High energy, well executed! I highly recommend!

    If youre not sitting in the main room for the show the atmosphere is odd/cold. The servers didnt attend our table and felt like we were just kept to one side. When we flagged someone down they were great an energetic, bur felt like we were an after thought to the other customers attending the belly dancing show. Unless youre going to the show, there are better places to to

    Started at the bar. The Morrocan 75 cocktail (like a French 75, but with grapefruit juice) was especially memorable of the folks who had that. Had the fixed price dinner with 3 courses. Everything was great, but the lamb dish was especially remarkable and way more food than we could eat, so they gave us boxes to take home. The entertainment was fun and engaging. There were two belly dancers who we really good and an aerialist with ropes. I kind of cringed at the aerialist as he was attached by his hair to a hook (seriously), but everybody enjoyed it. We saw him after the show and asked him if it hurt and he said, "Of course, it hurts like hell, but life is full of pain." Something like that. The host Heather was super engaging and entertaining. We had the wine pairing. That was perfectly paired with the pre, main and dessert courses. Almost everybody there was celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or quitting their job and Heather thanked them all by name. That was pretty cool. They had a vegetarian option, but you need to call them ahead of your seating to reserve that.

    it's nice. limited menu. lamb tangine was good not brilliant as was the sea bass. service good but uneven. backroom was hopping. maybe i'll try a dinner show. pet peeve. the front door kept being left open. it was cold and windy. we were all the way in the back and it was bad. twice asked, twice i walked across the restaurant to close it. note to mgmt--the left door closes, the right doesn't. tape a note to the right door-"use the other door" wow, what an easy concept

    For me, the entertainment was what really made the night incredible, and it was the reason we choose Berber as our destination for our gathering. On the night we visited, the opening act was a belly dancer with huge angelic white fans, and I’ll never forget her! Incredibly talented, professional and great at being engaged with her audience in an appropriate way. The other artists were also five stars, and everyone in our group took videos and was so impressed! The food portions were very generous, we couldn’t even eat everything. Dishes were healthy, delicious and big!

    Went to the show, which was great! The best was just being so close to the performers and having front row seats. The food was all decent, but not anything I would crave to have again. The lamb was very tender, but could have had more flavor. The bread was nice, but a little dense and not fully warmed. The dinner + show was a great experience to have at least once though!

    The dinner show description is misleading. I was expecting an ongoing acrobatic show throughout our meal. Instead, there were 3 performers on stage for 5 minutes or less each with about 30 minutes between each of them. The food was mediocre - not very creative, especially for vegans. Overall, I do not feel the experience was worth the investment. I went for my birthday and was really hoping to feel more celebrated by the staff.

    Fabulous time with the food selected by Aran/Arrow at the bar--an array of three courses with the right amount of food and great variety. Plus described so well for we foodies. The drinks made were fun and inventive. My buddy had chocolates from Maui and Arrow made an interesting drink with some heat added. Beau and Arrow were fun to chat with as we enjoyed our dinner. Note the maitre de is always social and hospitable. Decor so great at Berber. My 4th visit this year--and will be back.

    The price wasn’t informed to us for the performance seats. For the price, I would have went to broadway and gotten the best seats…the food was mediocore at best and tiny portioned. The performance was poorly constructed, felt irrelevant with no theme. Would never go again.

    For 20% mandatory gratuity and 6% service charge ($72 in tips for two people) I regret coming here. First waiter was friendly but wasn’t able to keep up the wine pairings/ forgets the final one. Second course pairing comes out after we’ve finished our second course. An additional drink I ordered resulted in a different drink which I let pass. After the third act, another waiter tells us coldly ‘we’d better hurry up (w/ the desserts) as next show is starting soon.’ I told him we were waiting on the final wine pairing and he begrudgingly returns with it without any comment on how late we’re receiving it. Our desserts are then cleared off our table without us seeing as I take a photo for a group of people. We have to down dessert wine on the way out the door.
