It was a quiet evening dinner. Service was excellent but the saffron chicken was a bit cool by the time it got to me and the spices not quite as flavorful as I was hoping. The sea bass tagine was good along with the couscous. Service from all the staff was excellent though. I think the lamb tagine was what smelled so good from the neighboring guests and if I didn’t have my own personal taste preference against lamb I would have gotten it too!
10/10 all around!
The food and the staff were excellent at this restaurant. The cocktail drinks are absolutely outstanding. The lamb tagline, the brazini, the chicken were lovely.
My only complaint about this restaurant is the ambiance/comfort: it was very cold inside, the chairs were a little too low for the table though the side banquets were fine, and due to the hard surfaces is very echoey and difficult to hear others at our table. These are minor inconveniences.
I’m looking forward to going back for the dance and music night on Fridays and Saturdays!
All good except music from performance in the back was discordant with music in front, which is irritating. For performance nights, I would advise they build a door and close off the back room.
This is an immersive experience even if you don’t catch the cirque performance. Sumptuous decor with cocktails and food to match. Staff look and act the part as well while providing great service. We will absolutely be back.
Hi, thank you for your 5-star review! We're very pleased to hear you had a memorable time with us. We hope to see you again soon.
The food, the staff and the ambience was just what I was looking for.
Hi Moroccoin, happy to hear you had a wonderful time with us and enjoyed all we have to offer. We hope to see you again soon!
Extremely cold inside the restaurant
Had a great meal. Awesome cocktails, super delicious homemade bread and mezzi dips. Had the tagine lamb which was delicious with a savory/sweet broth and baked quince which was a unique addition. Roasted Brussels with a lemon based glaze were crisped perfectly and the sour of the lemon wasn't overpowering. Def will be back.
Very good marocain cuisine ! Nice and warm ambiance
Hi Helene, thank you for your review! We're happy to hear you had a memorable time with us. We hope to see you again soon.
We were a group of 8 and were swayed by the waiter to get the pre-course fixed meal. The food wasn't worth the price. Would have rather ordered and gotten more variety. The main course of meat skewers and veggie tagine was underwhelming. I would come again to try it and order what I want.
Amazing show!!! Food was excellent. Definitely recommend the show
When first walking i remembered why i love this place so much. From the person at the host stand, the music, the food, and the overall energy of this place it is outstanding. One of my favorite places to go in SF!!!
We liked the appetizer much more than the main course. We had the lamb tangier, the ox tail Tangia and the camel burger for the main course. They are all $30+ and was not that big. The Brussel Sprout appetizer was good. All in all, ok dinner but don't think it is worth the price.
Great for meze and atmosphere! The service was very good albeit slow.
Always such an incredible experience at this place. Love the food, drinks, ambiance and awesome staff.
Great food and great ambience! 10/10 cocktail creativity
The food was amazing. We will definitely be returning to try more of the menu.
The service used to be much better
Fun entertainment with the dancers and participatin
Very nice place with delicious food. It can get extremely noisy so be prepared. We didn’t want to pay the $15 cover for flamingo dance/music so opted to be sat in the back room. Even with the doors closed it was extremely loud. During the breaks loud dance music was piped in but they turned off our speaker and we could converse a bit. Server was helpful, if not a bit pushy. All in all great food in a very noisy location.
This place was amazing in every aspect. I think it's incredibly underrated and was sad to see it wasn't jam packed on a Friday night, since it hit the mark in terms of service, ambiance, food, drinks, and value. It would be incredibly sad to see this place not take off. I'm telling all of my friends to go here! It took me straight back to Morocco with an incredibly approachable, fun, and innovative menu. 10/10 will go again!
This was our first time dining at Berber. We were attracted to the interior design while strolling by weeks before (I'm an architect). It is was fresh and modern, with lots of daylight at this time of year. We rarely eat before 9:00, but expecting a Friday crowd we made a 6:30 reservation. In the 90 minutes we were there, only 4-5 tables were occupied in the main dining room (out of about 30). There were several patrons in the adjacent bar area, but the whole time it was the quietest restaurant we've been to in years. The background music was the loudest element, but was enjoyable. There was a fairly steady stream of customers filing into the back supper club, which has live entertainment and a prix fixe menu. Service was very good - but then the main dining room wasn't too busy. Wine by the glass was expensive. The food was well prepared, though I somehow expected it to be a bit more spicy (I'd only eaten North African cuisine a few times previously, so had nothing to compare it to). Overall it was a pleasant experience, tasty but not amazing, and on the expensive side. I would recommend it to a friend with all these caveats, but probably won't be rushing back too soon. Maybe the private circus is the big draw?
The food was bland for Moroccan food. I expected more spices in the ravine and couscous.
Amazing food and perfect service. Great wine list but small pours.
Fabulous food and ambience. Will definitely be back.
Great service, food and value
Berber is very well decorated, but the food and entertainment was not the best I've had. The food was exciting sounding, but in reality all the things we ate (except for the cocktails and baklava) were pretty bland. The entertainment component was honestly a little awkward. I was there for brunch, and I guess for dinner the entertainment is in another room with a stage and lighting and such, so the dinner experience would probably be better. For brunch, they just had people performing in the front room right next to tables, and I was a bit nervous that I'd get hit by a hula hoop or a sword the whole time. I think it'd be more fun for dinner.
The food and service were both very good. I enjoyed the dancing as well. Thought it was a nice Mother’s Day breakfast. The meat in the steak and eggs was overdone but everything else was delicious! The Bloody Mary was really good!! Just the right amount of spice. Definitely do the pancakes. They were perfect.
Took them 50 min to seat us for our reservation. Then another 15 min to get water after asking 5 times. Drinks were 30 min in and first bite to eat 45 min.
I'm so happy Berber is here.
The main dining room is lovely. High ceilings great lighting with soft sand colored walls. It's open and yet still offers intimate conversion and comfortable seating.
Our service on two recent visits was excellent and enthusiastic. Ricardo was very helpful and knowledgeable and was right on about every suggestion.
Our food was such a fun exploration. We didn't know exactly what to expect and each dish was a surprising delight. My vegan buddy was thrilled as was I.
There is such s a nice balance of meats dishes and vegan items.. and you do not need to be a vegan to enjoy these healthy unique and flavorful dishes.
The wine list was approachable, so we felt free to enjoy more than we usually do with fine/casual city dining pricing.
The cocktails where big and pretty on our first visit.
and the Aperol spritz was beautiful big and glowing on our second visit, so several of those where enjoyed :)
I'm looking forward to hosting a birthday in the dinner theater room in back.
It's looks super fun & sexy back there and we caught a sneak peek of the belly dancers and other performers, More exotic and fresh experiences to check out!
This restaurant is very beautiful. A true success for the decor and the atmosphere. But... Please, please make authentic Moroccan food using the flavorful Moroccan spices. Make the dishes less bland. We were a party of 5, we shared appetizers and 4 different tagines. We all agreed that all the dishes were ok, but not amazing. We want to love this place since we love Moroccan cuisine and in SF there is not a good Moroccan restaurant. I hope they improve.
Super classy and unpretentious restaurant- fine dining experience with personality and excellent ambiance. The staff and the manager were incredible! And if you're lucky enough to get a table in the back room for the show on a Friday or Saturday night, you will not be disappointed!!
Fun front dining hall experience even without the theater option.
The ambiance is incredibly cool but I thought the food was a bit underwhelming and the service a little unattentive.
I worked in Morocco for 18 months and thought the food and ambiance was phenomenal!!! Very authentic
Amazing experience! I can’t stop coming back. Everything is excellent! Ambience, food and service.
Berber just opened a couple of months ago, so of course they will be working to smooth out the service. I’m confident once they get everyone working in sync, it will be wonderful. While it’s still in the works, it’s worth a visit.
-Make reserving the dinner with entertainment more clear. We thought entertainment was part of the general dining experience. We were told you must call the restaurant directly to reserve the tables in the back where the entertainment takes place.
-Make the cushions along the walls a little slimmer. They are so thick they make you sit quite high up over the table. It’s uncomfortable, especially for taller people.
-Lower the music volume just a little. It’s so loud that we watched other patrons leaning across the table to have even a brief conversation with their friends as we had.
- Improve the service. Our waitress was not very responsive. After waiting too long to order drinks, we thought she’d be more attentive to take the main orders. At one point, we tried to get her attention, but she was so engrossed in conversation with the owner/manager by the computer she was not paying attention to her tables. The staff that assist the waiters were much more conscientious about taking our additional orders. I’d give them the waiting job!
The Sommelier was superb. She was spot on with her recommendation. Plus, she pitched in to bring us a couple of our orders that were yet to arrive.
The food was quite good. The lamb was delicious, the semolina bread was very flavorful as were the beets with goat cheese! Friends opined that the saffron chicken was a little too salty and lacked saffron.
Overall we enjoyed the food, desserts and the ambience. We’ll be back in a couple months to enjoy Berber again.
It’s the second time I’m at Berber. First time in the back room for a private party, everything was good. This time in a large party of 8 everything was just perfect. From the welcoming throughout the service was impecable, food came at perfect timing and was delicious and I have to say it was very reasonable. An excellent experience overall.
It is loud but I would call it happening and fun.
Highly recommend if you like delicious food, knowledgeable service, good music and great ambiance!
Berber is a new restaurant in San Francisco on the corner of Broadway and Van Ness in a nice neighborhood, with fabulous ambiance, dinner & a show option on Saturday nights with musicians and performers. The food is very tasty and unique. I felt transformed into the exotics of North Africa, Tunisia I visited last summer. Very unique, elegant, romantic, relaxing new hot spot in the City. Highly recommend.
