We arrived and a sign on the door said “under possession of landlord”. The place is closed!!! Maybe opentable should know that? Very disappointing since we were going there for a birthday celebration!

Food was very good, however, the service was horrendous. So bad, we will not return. Besides waiting forever for food and drink items, silverware was missing, water delivered but only to two of us (server didn't notice empty 3rd glass). Other table with bigger party seated after us was given much more attention. They got tea, we had to ask several times. Poorly understaffed! Bartender and host were the only two waiters/servers. They kept forgetting items, making mistakes, it was pathetic. Newer seated party of two left after waiting 20 minutes for any service.

The most beautifully decorated, with authentic Moroccan items, place on 8th Street. Lovely lighting and superb cuisine.

I had made reservations for 10pm last night (a Friday) and pushed it last minute to 10:30 pm as we were running late.
Open table showed reservations available until 11pm.
We got there and the restaurant was closed. A staff member was outside - I don’t think it was the manager though - told us they closed the kitchen half an hour ago. He did not seem to care at all.
Their website says they are open until midnight...
Long story short I won’t go back this is a joke.

Food was okay but nothing exceptional. I really liked the fancy atmosphere and how the food is presented on the plate. Music was too loud we could hardly talk. When asked about the wine list we were told “we have red wine and white wine” lol. But I’d say the overall experience was okay.

Tonight it was our first time when we were at Mekki NYC restaurant. One of my friend said that i need to go here. And you know what? He was absolutly right!
The design is very colorful, everything is thoughtful, the atmosphere is excellent, the staff is very friendly, the waiter helped to decide on food and drinks. We tried: Zaalouk, fried sardines, shrimp Chermoula, Lamb a la Mounia. The food was awesome! I was very pleased with this restaurant. I will definitely come back and will advise this restaurant. Thank you)

Delicious food. Not as many choices for vegetarians as I'd like but the flavors are distinct amd diverse. Wine and drink selection can be also expanded somewhat. Great, friendly, and warm hospitality.

Not the best restaurant. So many fruit flies. Over priced food and cheap liquor I loved the lamb. Wonderful atmosphere. John the Manager was awesome. But the place looks like the owner cut Conners with food and drinks.
