we tried this restaurant after trying another similar style Moroccan restaurant a couple of months ago. we were completely disappointed and will never go back there. even though there were no smoking signs, the restaurant smelled like a middle eastern coffee house, where people sit and smoke all day. the service was horrible (no smile or accommodation of our requests from the person waiting our table). compared to the other place, we got less food for 4 people compared to the plenty of food we were served at the other one for 2. at the end of our 7-course-meal, we were still hungry (none of us are obese, or even over weight)! it costed us around $140 for 4 people (no alcohol included). almost 1/3 of the things listed on their website for 7-course-meal was not served or not available (with no explanation as a courtesy - of course we were not even provided a menu listing what would be served probably to cover this up). in addition, some guy (assuming the owner) came to our table and asked our permission to smoke pipe! when we said it is already smoky and it bothers us as is, his response was "no, this is a non-smoking place." i guess that meant it was non-smoking for guests that do not like smelly places while they eat! i would strongly recommend you avoid going there. it is a complete rip off! all of us agreed that this was the worst experience ever for us.

Three coworkers including myself attended what we thought would be a magical night at Casablanca. The night was a disaster! The restaurant was empty, which should have been a warning sign. The restaurant was dark and dismal. We tried the seven course advertised deal which was a huge mistake! The food came on small saucers, individual size servings, but with three spoons. These are my coworkers and you expect us to share a plate! The food was disgusting! Everything had a lemony taste! The website advertises a belly dancer and when I asked about her whereabouts the waiter told me that she ran into troubles. I have a feeling that they say this every night. To top off our evening, they added an 18% gratuity to a party of three, and they spelled Moroccan wrong on their outside sign. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!

I had dinner here on a quiet weeknight. For most of the meal, my husband and I were the only customers at the restaurant. The restaurant is dark with cushions spread around the low, round tables and cloth hanging around, giving the area a tent-like feeling. The menu is all Moroccan dishes. There is a several course meal available. It looked delicious, but too much for us. We ordered a la carte. We shared a fabulous salad plate with hummus, baba ganoush, carrots and plenty of bread to mop it all up. for the main courses, the couscous was quite good and the roasted chicken was quite ordinary. Our server was extremely friendly and talked to us about Morocco and her family and life there. Evidently, the place is really hot on the nights when there is belly dancing.
