My extended family and I had dinner there last night and Abdul took care of us. He was very patient with us and allowed us to take as much time as we wanted with our meal. He was very attentive and answered all of our questions. Most of us had meals from the grill menu (chicken kebob, sirloin kebob or mixed grill) and one brother had the lamb tagine. Everyone was happy with their meals. The dip platter and grape leaves were yummy and everyone enjoyed the fruit and baklava desert with the mint tea. Abdul presented each of the ladies in our group with a small gift which was very sweet. I definitely recommend Marakesh!

On a weekend after 8pm you have a belly dancer perform and she is superb. We had ordered kebab and baby lamb tagine for dinner. The food is really good and tastefully made and cooked to perfection. They offer tea in the end which is a classic too.
The ambience is very traditional and looks classy.
If your taste buds crave Moroccan food then marakesh is the restaurant for you.

We've been to Marakesh many times and have never been disappointed, the food is always excellent. Unfortunately I've had some health issues lately that have required me to do an intensive elimination diet. We came tonight in the hopes of their having a dish I could eat, but found out that every dish has an ingredient I can't eat. The owner stopped what he was doing and discussed my crazy limitations and told me he would make a dish specifically for me, he even made me special tea with honey instead of sugar.

There are very few places I can eat right now and they have added Marakesh to my short list. I'm so thankful that he doesn't look at me like I'm being high maintenance, but he cares about my needs as a customer.

And again, even though my food was made differently it was still delicious!

I wouldn't come on Fri or Sat night asking for these accommodations, that's a lot to ask, but on a Sunday night I'll definitely be back!

The food was just ok. Not very good vegetarian on Friday night. They push for the fixed menu instead of a la carte. The belly dancer was very good but I wonder if she was a female! Go for experience not for food.

We went with another couple that had been here before and completely enjoyed ourselves. 2 seatings on Saturday night, 6 and 9 PM. Plenty of parking in the back of the lot.
Each couple ordered the 4 course dinner for 2 and shared the salmon and the grilled platter made up of beef, chicken breast and kafti, minced beef with herbs and spices. All excellent, though the tomato sauce for the salmon was bland. You start off with making your own salad plate with freshly chopped greens, tomatoes, cukes and onions. Then add dressing, hummus, eggplant salad similar to an Italian Caponata, baba ganouj an eggplant puree, marinated vegetable and plain canned black olives.
Simple dessert of some sweets, fresh fruit and sweet tea.
BYOB is well handled and the belly dancer adds fun especially getting people to dance with her!
