- Mark up price for a special love day; the norm
- a few Mylar balloons to give it The V day feel; tacky
- The prefixed meal was no different than an average day
- Service was mediocre, nothing worth noting
- The feeling was... being herded like a flock of sheep; sit, eat, and go
Overall, it’s an experience. Belly dancing was entertaining, for a bit.
Excellent service, food and drinks. Looking forward to our next Date Night!
A fun experience on a Saturday evening. Mesmerizing entertainment is a must see! Delicious food from Kebabs to four course meals.
Amazing place! Will take my wife and kids here!
This was my first visit and I was extermely disappointed. It took a long time to take our order, the food as ok but I was expecting a better quality. The service was so bad that at some point we felt forgotten in the resturant.
It was surprising that they charge you a tip for party of 5 or more.
The food was delicious and the service was courteous. The entertainment was fun and friendly. They even prepared a surprise dessert for us.
A group of 6 of us went to Menara Moroccan for the adventure! Some of us had been before, others had not. As usual, Menara does not disappoint. For newbies to Moroccan food, the fixed price menus off are great way to try a number of different things. The service was very good, and we were lucky enough to have a belly dancer (we went on Sunday, and there is usually not a belly dancer on Sundays). I believe her name was Kai and she was absolutely wonderful!
Menara Moroccan is a great place for parties and large group events. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. Be prepared to get up and belly dance!
We had a reservation and were quickly seated when the restaurant opened at 6pm. The tables had not all been set up in advance, so staff were shuttling plates and napkins from one table to the next or gathering more from elsewhere. The staff were assisting other customers who arrived after us and seating a large group, so it took 10 minutes to place our drink order and another 15 minutes before we were able to place our dinner order. The group of 12-15 people was celebrating an anniversary and were seated next to us. The bar drinks were okay but nothing too special. The food, however, that came in 6 different rounds was fabulous! We highly recommend the Cornish Game Hen and Lamb dishes. The noise level of the piped in music was too high for our tastes and the large group next to us was loudly celebrating, so unfortunately we "almost 70 year olds" were not able to carry on regular conversation for our Date Night. We really appreciated the Belly Dancer at 7pm, that we did not expect on a Sunday night, and tipped her for the excellent performance. This is certainly a location for a Moroccan experience with hand washing at your table and a Mint Tea finale! We do plan to return, hopefully on a quieter night.
Great service and food. The view of the sunset was amazing!
Excellent food!!! Lovely belly dancing overall a fantastic restaurant 👍🏻
Good food and reasonable prices for lunch. We were a little skeptical since we were the ONLY table there for lunch. Apparently the restaurant has been in business for 40 years, open only at night, and only just started lunch hours a year ago. The ambience is more fitting for dinner hours, dim, but unique decor.
I definitely recommend this restaurant!
I enjoyed the environment and the entertainment. Food was delivered very fast and consumed quickly
It was a great experience... food was really good as well. The total experience was well worth it. Not for people in a rush. Go early and stay late, it's definitely worth the time.
Fun place for a birthday party but the service was not very good. We had asked for our drinks several times and never received the tea service.
The place is very energetic, the staff is very welcoming. Perfect for a birthday and they have a nice entertainment.
I ordered Tagine on a Thursday evening and the dish was quite good. I've been craving good Morrocan food since my trip to Montreal and this was a gem for a cuisine that's not common in San Jose. You do have to be prepared to sit traditional style on floor cushions with pillows and low tables and really low lighting for dinner. It goes with the ambiance but might not be comfortable for your back and be a tad dark for some folks in certain nooks.
Wonderful from start to finish!!!! Would definitely recommend to others!!
we ordered one kabob platter and fish tagine. The kabob platter was good but they didnt serve tagine on the pot what it was supposed to serve on and the taste was bland. really loved the belly dancing part. If I go again i will be going for belly dancing not for food.
Delightfully Enriching experience for all the senses!! I highly recommend it. I have been eating here since 1977.
It has grown to be even better.
I had the Cornish hen the apricots. Great flavor, large serving. I was concerned about the bones. So tender even the bones fell off into the couscous. Nect time I will order a dish without the bones. I look forward to trying dinner and seeing the belly dancers.
