This restaurant makes Morocco looks bad. The two guards are unpolite, especially the big one who thinks he knows too well and thinks that he can step all over people. The service is very bad, I waited for bread for one hour. I don't

Marrakech food taste is ok, large portions Service was good we got a lot of attention. I liked a dancer she was pleasant to look at. Check it out.

Exceptional service. We invited 25 friends, which is a challenge for any business to accomodate. It was just lovely. Great food, unbelievable attention for each person, and so much for our money. The staff rolled out the red carpet and made our trip to San Francisco one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you so much. We will definitely come back.

I went here for the first time last week and I really enjoyed the service and environment of the store. The prices are a little much but the food is quite exceptional.

I've come to this restaurant a few times for bdays and fun dinner parties and my friends and I have always had a great experience.:) The food is really flavorful, prices are reasonable, and the selection is great. You end up wanting to try everything. The atmosphere is unique and friendly. Maybe it's because the waiters recognize us, but I've never had lousy service here. On the contrary, it seems like they want to join our party.:) It can strike some as a bit cheesy, but the belly dancing and music is fun. Especially when you get the guys in your group up and shaking their hips. Anyway, this place has yummy middle eastern food and is quite entertaining.:) Grab a group of your friends and check it out if you're in the mood for some belly dancing action.

I could not believe how little they cared about us. The manager, host, and waiter spent the whole night text-messaging, talking on their phones, smoking, and hanging out with friends - all while our needs went completely ignored. While the waiter was explaining the menu to us, his phone rang 4 times... that was just the start of the unprofessional service. We ordered drinks and they came 45 minutes later after we reminded the server 3 times. He seemed more interested in talking with his friends. Our 2nd drink order took over 1 hour to be served to us - not because the restaurant was full, but because the server simply didn't care.

When we arrived, we were promised that a belly dancer performs all night, every night, and that she would be on within 10 minutes of our arrival. We were there for 3 hours and there was no dancer. We spoke with a local dancer in San Francisco and she said that the Marrakech routinely cancels their dancers if the restaurant isn't full. We asked the host no less than 10 times when the dancer would start, and each time he lied to us and told us that she would be on in "about 10 minutes".

We arrived at 7:00pm and we did not leave until 10:00pm, and that was only because we insisted that when the 'server' brings the main course that he also brought the bill. We could not wait any more. We were sure that if we waited for them to bring us the dessert and tea that our $35.00 was entitled to, we would have been there well past midnight.

I hated every minute I was there because I knew that they didn't care at all about our needs, and I knew they were lying to us all the time about the dancer.

To the credit of their chefs: the food was excellent. But I assure you, it is not so excellent that you suffer their miserable service for the 3-5 hours it takes them to serve you.

I give them a F+. The only reason I don't give an F- is because the food was quite delicious. Bottom line: Horrible, horrible service with good food.

The waiter spent the whole time trying to seduce a group of pretty young girls that were seated next to us. He pampered them, he brought them drinks, he took care of everything for them.

For us, he did nothing - we were ignored all night. We placed our initial drink order, which he didn't bother to bring to us until an HOUR later.

There was no belly dancer, even though they promised us repeatedly that she would perform.

I cannot recommend to anybody. The service was awful and the food was just as bad. Half of the reason I went was for the dancer, who never showed up. We were there for almost 4 hours before our meal was completed... this was a dining-out nightmare.

We will NEVER go back.

Its my second time to the place, I didn't like it at all. The Service was the worse service i had ever experienced. The Hookah was not a hookah, but it was I think made of some kind of meat or something, It had smell of meat....I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

My friends and I came to Marrakech not knowing what to expect, we were just looking for a hookah bar. They were extremely helpful before we even got there- i got lost several times and had to keep asking for directions. The atmosphere was really exotic and relaxing... it was the ultimate experience for me. We happened to go on the night they had dancing, so after we smoked some hookah and ate some food, we danced to some belly-dancing beats and some hip hop beats. We actullay were expecting it to be expensive, but the prices were very reasonable. It was a perfect night out.

We paid over $400 for my mother's birthday dinner at Marrakech and the service was horrible. There were a total of 12 guests and we were seated in 2 different sections of the restaurant. Then, they only brought drinks for the table my mother was sitting at. When, I asked the waiter for our drinks he got upset and began yelling as to why we didn't all place our orders at the same time. I tried but it is hard to tell a waiter what you want in 1 second before they run off. This is not the first time this has happened here. This is our second time here and I noticed on other reviews, it took them a loooooong time to bring drinks to the table. The servers are rude and the restaurant is understaffed. Then, when we went to pay for our dinner they overcharged me $20 on my credit card. When I looked at the receipt, there was no dollar amount indicated and I did not notice until I checked my bank account at home. Make sure they give you a printed receipt with the dollar amount! They are a bunch of swindlers! When I complained to the owner, he told me he would send a new waiter, but it must have been our waiter's TWIN freakin' brother, because it looked like the same waiter (which it was) but this one actually had a fake smile this time! I loved the food and the decor, and the belly dancer, but I will NEVER return here again. They're not the only Morrocan restaurant in town. Next time, I think I will try PASHA restaurant.
Good eating!

This Moroccon place was just average for us. We were around 8 of us and had reservations for the night. After being seated promptly, we started off with the drink menu which took forever to come and especially for the second round; we had almost completed dinner when it was served. We decided on the ?complete dinner? for us. Started with the lentil soup which was good, and then the salad followed, which had eggplant that was very tasty. The Bastilla which is chicken and nuts filled fillo dough topped with powdered sugar which came out pretty well. Finally the dinners came, according to our taste platters. Most of it were average, like lamb with honey, chicken with lemon and olives, Cornish game hen etc etc. Finally the mint tea to finish off the evening.
Overall, we were not very happy with the service as it took them forever to bring our drinks, and finally to bring the check. The food was average and overprices. However the highlight of the evening was the belly dancer who performed at some point of time in the evening and the music started!

Our dinner at the Marrakech was just AMAZING! We enjoyed the 5 course meal from start to finish. We particularly loved the Bastila and our Lamb dishes. Their bread is also out of this world delicious. The belly dancer was fun and all the staff members were very friendly and helpful. We had our hands washed on the table with this special orange blossom scented water and they also gave us some at the end of our meal to keep our hands smelling nice. I highly recommend this restaurant for a fun, warm, romatic and delicious dinner.

Oh my god. What are the odds of having dinner next to a star?!!! Kobe Bryant was there on a Saturday night with his friends, totally lounging Moroccan style and enjoying the belly dance moves. I walked up to him and took a picture. He also signed my purse and my firend's camera bag. Amazing!!
But I mean regardless, this place is awesome. Great food, great athmosphere and the service is great. We enjoyed every minute of our meal and I definitely recommend Marrakech for an out of this world dinning experience!!

My friends and I chose Marrakech as the restuarant for our monthly "supper club" primarily because of the rave reviews on this site. Unfortunately, we were sorely disappointed. The place was half empty, yet we waited nearly 20 minutes for someone to bring us menus and another 20 minutes for someone to come take our order, never got the bread we asked for with our entrees, and waited another 30 minutes for our check. The food was edible, but aside from the soup and appetizer spreads, was incredibly bland and uninteresting?and overpriced. All of the entrees are $25 if you order them a la carte, including the vegetarian entree?which is nothing more than a plate of couscous with some vegetables on top. The full dinner is $35 and comes with a cup of lentil soup, a plate of hummus and a couple other salads/spreads, bastilla (which was soggy and tasteless), and a piece of baklava. Don't believe the hype.

It's been a while that I've been wanting to try this place and boy am I glad I did! My friends were in heaven and all had a great time. The food was very flavorful, the setting is very romantic and beautiful, and the service was very nice and friendly. We also had a hookah at the end. the DJ spined few hip songs for us to dance to and the belly dancer sure ought us some moves. Al in all, we all had a great time. I highly recommend this restaurant for an out of this world dining experience.

When I headed to Marrakech on a rainy saturday night I had no idea what to expect. After making my way into the shelter of Marrakech I was seated at a lounge-like seating area where the fun was only beginning. Music was playing and although the floor was empty, as soon as my friends and I jumped on the dancefloor everyone joined in and the restaurant was alive. If your looking for a good time and a welcoming environment head to Marrakech.

This is a must-stop for me every time I'm in San Francisco. I am truly speechless as to why people are complaining about the price - hello you live in SF?! For $35 you get a 4-5 course meal that is honestly very delicious. The lamb dishes are fantastic - the eggplant lamb is a must-try! the service i've always had is great, though the wait between courses can be long at times depending on the crowd.

We celebrated birthday of my girlfriend there and had very awful experience:
- we made reservation in advance and had 18 people, but they put us in space that was not sufficient for such number of people. Half of seats were very inconvenient. I am healthy dude, but my back hurt after 3 hours of this seating
- they brought us 4 consecutive dishes. Between each dish there was pause of at least 30 minutes. We spent there 3 hours eating. I am sorry, my stomach can not handle this kind of meal schedule. After you eat appetizer you expect main entry relatively soon, otherwise you are not hungry anymore.
- music was extremely loud. It was impossible to talk.
- food was OK, but I think is overpriced.
- there was not enough food. We paid $55 per person, but many people were hungry.

One positive comment: girl who did belly dance was very good.

This place turns into a kind of unofficial club on Thursday nights (lots of dancing..some disco lights..one of the servers started mixing some Arabic music), and a more official one on Saturday (they have a cover charge..) Every other day of the week, it's nice, the service is amazing, the bread and tea are exceptional. They even come wash your hands with scented water. Dim lighting, lots of oriental decoration, cushions and carpets everywhere, very sensual and romantic (reds, blacks, purples, swirling patterns...). However, it's also great for a large group, or even if you just want to come in for some hookah with a friend (highly recommended, lots of flavors for only $15). The guys who run it are very friendly, constantly coming around to refill your tea or to make sure you are having the best time possible. The bellydancing is good, but can vary. It's, at the least, always entertaining.

I had the best lamb ever at the Marrakech! It was very tender and tasty...mmm...mmm....mmm!!! Everything else was just great. the service was friendly, the belly dancing show was very entertaining and the food was great. Very beautiful Moroccan setting with fluffy floor cushions. Very relaxed and romantic. I recommend this place for yummy food and a break from everyday noise. 5 stars!

I was a little reluctant to go to Marrakech at first, having red some mixed reviews about it and all. Bottom line, Marrakech is just an exquisite place for an out of this world dining experience. I am not sure why some people complain about the prices when you're getting a 6 course meal for like 30 bucks! It's San Francisco people...and it's a five star restaurant too. The food was just to drool over. LOVED their lamb and the home made bread. The waiters were just eager to please us at all times. Very friendly place! After the Belly dance show was over, the DJ was playing club hits and people were dancing and having fun. At the end of our meal they washed our hands on our table with orange blossom scented water and gave us desert and tea. Great experience! Don't listen to the mixed reviews, go there and see for yourself. It's really worth it!

We loved this place! The food was delicious and the place was just GORGIOUS! It's decorated with Moroccan arts and crafts, you get to sit on floor cushions and the overall color palette is red and gold. Very romantic! The service was very friendly and efficient. DELICIOUS FOOD! We partucularly enjoyed their Moroccan magic drink and the orange blossom water they sprinkle on your hands after you're done eating. My four year old daughter fell in love with their belly dancer, who invited her to dance and even taught her some moves :-) We had a magic night! Thank you Marrakech.

I visited Marrakech last Saturday with a group of friends from the Oracle convention. IT WAS SPECTACULAR!!
The food was beyond delicious and the athmosphere was just excellent.Very reasonable price for what you get. 5 course dinner for about 30 dollars. The service was very attentive and friendly. We had delicious hookahs after our dinner and we danced to beautiful music!

I visited Marrakech last Saturday with a group of friends from the Oracle convention. IT WAS SPECTACULAR!!
The food was beyond delicious and the athmosphere was just excellent.Very reasonable price for what you get. 5 course dinner for about 30 dollars. The service was very attentive and friendly.

My brother hosted his Jewish wedding at the Marrakech and it was the wedding of a lifetime. We are so gratefull to the owner Bashir and His wife Najwa for their extreme kindness and hospitality. They made sure everything including alchochol was Kosher for our party and they even had a Rabi for us in their Kitchen. Thank you so much for making our family wedding such a success! We love you Marrakech and mazel tov!!!!

We celebrated my brother's 30th birthday last Saturday and it was simply a BLAST! The food was absolutely delicious, the service was very warm and efficient, and mostly, the ambiance was just FUN! Their Moroccan magic drink is really magical and the hookahs were a perfect ending to our amazing dinner.
Thank you Marrakech for making my brother's big O a special and memorable one.

Being at the Marrakech was like being miles away from home. We literally felt we were in exotic Morocco enjoying their rich and warm culture! At the Marrakech, the food was delicious and affordable. The service was professional and the entertainment was just so much fun. The place is gorgeous and beautifully decorated with reds and golds. We just felt like royalty! This restaurant is really a joy to dine at.

I've been to the Marrakech multiple times now. I feel I just owe them a huge thank you for all the wonderfull time they provided me with every single time I was there. It was actually such a pleasure to see them featured on FOX tv last Sunday in that cool show: Trading Spouces. The thing I love the most about this resataurant/lounge is the consistency of their great service and delicious food. They make you feel right at home! San Francisco's coolest spot!!

Ate here with my husband and aunt who was staying in Union Square. We wanted to dine somewhere nearby. Marrakech was an excellent choice - relaxing atmosphere, you could linger, it was a dining experience. The restaurant is decked out in full Moroccan theme. The have hookahs if you so desire. There is belly dancing nightly. Hands are washed a few times at the table. Some patrons can sit on the floor (on pillows) otherwise, there are corner tables for all to sit on pillowed benches. The food was soooo good and the staff was so attentive and sweet. We ordered Moroccan wine and 2 full meals to share, but they gave all 3 of us the starters that came with - lentil soup and salad/bread. We all had baklava for dessert too. We had left overs, so I suggest sharing. Apparently this is common. I will definitely be back!

My friends surprised me with a birthday dinner at the Marrakech. Thought I was going there for hookah and drinks..., it turned out that a whole dinner feast was all set up to celebrate my big O. It was a blast! The service was kind and the food was simply amazing. The BEST Lamb in the bay area. Really! I am Greek and I know! Loved the decoration and atmosphere, the hand-washing ritual on the table-with warm orange blossom scented water, and of course belly dancing was just the cherry on the cake. My birthday gift from Marrakech was a Fez hat and a couple of their house special drink, the famous, the only: The Moroccan Magic Drink. All in all, I highly recommend this place for a special and delicious occasion in your life!

Placed right across from our hotel (the Hilton), we went there for the most memorable romantic dinner we've had in a long time. The food was just amazing! so delicious and tasty. The Atmosphere was very romantic as the whole restaurant is dressed with beautiful crafts from Morocco. The overall color palette is shades of Red and Gold. This place inspires love and passion! Everything about it makes you feel warm and satisfied. We particularly enjoyed the Belly dancing shows and how we had our hands washed on the table with orange blossom scented warm water. Talk about a royal treatment :-)

Marrakech has become the place to see and be seen. They offer a great after 10 p.m hookah menu loaded with interesting flavors and really cool exotic cocktails. The DJ spins great tunes every night, belly dancing shows, and live music on Saturday and Sunday. This place is happening is because of their great food, great service, awesome atmosphere, and their flexibility to play customers CDs. Customer is really KING at the Marrakech! So you see Russians dancing to their own tunes, then cool mixed Arbic music for belly dancing fans, then house music, then Salsa music...My group of friends now swear by Marrakech. We're really lucky to have found such a great spot in San Francisco!!

Simply put, the best 5 star dining experience I've had in a long time. And for a bargain! Now I want to go visit Morocco! Not only the food was amazing and flavorful, but the service was great and timing was impeccable. They were just all so eager to please us from the host down to the sweet bus girl. They handled a 40 people party like a peice of cake. Also, their hookah menu is just impressive. They've got all the falvors there ever could be from Chocolate fudge to, Jasmine & honey to, Anise to, Apple cinnamon...and the list goes on... They also offer a delicious speciaty drinks menu that's so exotic and fun. My favorite was Cleopatra's cosmo. I may just had too many ;-) Not to mention the great belly dance entertainment and the cozy romantic Moroccan seatting. We'll be back Marrakech!

I went here for my birthday with about 10 friends. We had an excellent time. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was really good. They even wash your hands at your table for you. The belly dancers were great; members from our group participated with them. We smoked hookah after dinner. It was the perfect way to end the dinner. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and unique dining experience.

My wife and I were in Marrakech, Morocco last spring for our honeymoon. We had the most romantic and exotic experience we could ever have wished for. Since then, we have been trying some Moroccan restaurants here and there in San Francisco to capture the flavorful and delicious Morccan dishes again. I have to say that Marrakech Restaurant offers the best Tagine and Moroccan bread in the city. Especially Lamb. Just deliscious! I highly recommend this place for authentic Moroccan cuisine. The prices are great beacause you get a whole 6 course meal including desert in your set menu. We loved the romantic athmosphere, the Morccan magic drink, and the lovely host who gave us a free hookh on the house!!

I just love this place!! Marrakech hosted my 30th Brithday Moroccan style and it was just a blast. I had around 25 guests and we all enjoyed the food so much. We also had hookah pipes circling around after our delicious desert. The belly dancer made sure I learned some cool moves on my birthday ;-) and I got a gift from the host which was a red fes hat. Great service. Just lovely. I highly recommend this place for special occasions. Plus it's beautiful and spacious. Thank you Marrakech sf.

I heard this was a great place for a birthday party. I have to say I disagree. Everyone found the food to be pretty mediocre and very expensive for the amount we were served. The host told us that being served as a group would be less expensive. It was actually about 1 1/2 times the menus rate for an entire dinner and we did not even get all of the courses. Our waiter was also very rude - perhaps it was the heat, because the restaurant was also very hot and stuffy, so people throughout the place were very uncomfortable. The belly dancer was fantastic though. However, you may want to consider going somewhere else if you have a large group.

I had my engagement dinner at Marrakech and my group and I were all pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of our meal. The drink selection was excellent and the quality of the appetizers, lamb, chicken were outstanding. EVERYONE in my group enjoyed all the appetizers, entrees and the desserts. There was live music and belly dancing which definitely brought lots of fun too the party. I hope more people check this place out. It's a place where the chic SOMA folks will enjoy, but I also had a few friends from the Marina who had a great time, too, and wouldn't stop raving about the Lamb! It's a surprising find and successfully pulls off chic, romantic, and delicious food...

The service was good, but the food is not what I expected from a Moroccan restaurant named Marrakesh. This Marrakesh invented their own Couscous Royal because the Couscous we eat in most Moroccan cities doesn't come with Brocoli and Cauliflower. Couscous Royal from Marrakesh definitely comes with 7 vegetables and the main one for flavor and smell is cabbage and a lamb sausage called Merguez. The tea was terrible from a Moroccan perspective, need to use green tea with mint and orange blossom buds. Sorry but food I had last night wasn't at all Moroccan not we cook at home.

I didn't know what to expect when I walked through the ornate doors, surrounded by large decorations on the outside, into this Tenderloin spot. The interior decor is very nice, with the traditional low copper tables and couches: it looked like there was plenty of space for a group, esp. on a week night as we were the only two eating. After having our hands washed, we split one full meal and one additional entree. The food was delicious, absolutely a departure from the ordinary. Try the chicken tangine with preserved lemons. The service was outstanding, and the host was welcoming to the point where he wanted to make sure we returned. Dinner for two is not cheap, but you will pay for a very good meal and service.

The place is cool and would be great for drink with a large group but the food was so-so. When our entrees were brought to us they were room temperature. When asked if this is how they are supposed to be served the waiter said he didn't know...and then brought them off and re-heated them. We ordered off the ala carte menu, which included a large entree for $25, which was WAY too expensive. The housemade bread, as mentioned in other posts was good, but that was pretty much the highlight.

My husband and I got married in this restaurant 3 years ago, and it was simply a fairy tale. We went back last week to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we were so happy with our dinner at marrakech. The waiters were so professional and helpful, and the food was deliscious. The live band also played a happy anniversary for us in Arabic, and we danced sipping on our champagne glasses. They also gave us a Fes hat for a present!!
This place is great and I highly recommend It.

My lamb was so tender and delicious, and overall the food was very flavorful. The entertainment was fun and not too in-your-face, a problem I've seen at other Moroccan restaurants. The service was super prompt. Decor was cool, too. Another plus was that the tables were not too close and crowded together (again at other Moroccan restaurants, I've felt like I was being corraled in like sheep). I went with a friend but this would be the perfect group spot...something different and fun.

I have had the occasion to eat at a few different Moroccan restaurants, and have mixed feelings about Marrakech. The service was eager-to-please while they were helping you, but often disappeared and were nowhere in sight if you happened to need something. The decor was either gaudy or really authentic, or a mixture of the two, and was a bit distracting. Most importantly: the food. I tried the fixed, five-course menu, and was not too impressed with the lentil soup or salads. The hot, fresh-baked bread was very tasty, as was the entree my date ordered, the lamb with honey and almonds. The mint tea, served in glasses, was sweet and a nice end to the meal,
