Glad

My Saturday night 7-course ""feast"" at Fez provided a fun distraction from the din of the holiday season. I was glad I was there with good company because the night stretched out longer than anyone could have anticipated.

The delicious pickled carrots that came with the salad and the truly excellent whole chicken that we tore into like savages. The meal was a decent value for the $25 price tag.

The belly dancer brought her A-game, dancing at least four sets of 15-20 minutes ap
...view moreiece, with ~30 minute breaks in between. The crowd really got into it, and many people got up to dance with and tip her. Now, if you do the math on the time-frames that I listed, you will see that we were at Fez for a LONG TIME. In fact, we were there for well over 4 hours. We enjoyed the pace of the first half of our meal, and were pleased that we were not being overly rushed.

We ordered a ""Tangerine Dream"" hookah, which ended up being a surprise highlight of the night since we had ordered it primarily for the novelty. The smoke was very smooth, and the flavor was pleasantly reminiscent of Tang, leading to amused speculation that perhaps it is what the astronauts smoke.

Good food and reasonable prices

Good food and reasonable prices. I've been with 2 large groups of about 10, and a trio. All were comfortably and quickly seated. The seafood bastilla and mint tea were easily the best part for the meal. The decor is cozy, if a bit cheesy. It feels like walking into a hideaway of some 50's movie about the desert, more than a slice of Moroccan culture. Unfortunately, I've yet to go on a night with belly dancers

Sets the standard

This kind of sets the standard for what I consider to be an awesome hookah place in a strange new city. We rolled in around 10pm on Sunday, knowing from the Yelp app full-well that they were going to close at 11pm. So we get seated and get right to it - we want the tequila sunrise hookah because that name just sounds awesome.

The decoration is legit & authentic. The walls are covered with cloth, the windows are blacked out from the street with the same cloth, there are the cloth han
...view moregings coming off the wall, and the lighting is dim to make it seem authentic, something straight out of one thousand and one nights. The tables are round and are organized in a lavish lounge sort of setting. The waiter guy was nice, friendly, and was doing a rockstar job of checking in on us and the coals.

Hookah for three people came out to $27. Not exactly cheap, but at least not exorbitant compared to some hookah places across the country I have unfortunately visited.

My return visit scheduled and on the books has already incorporated this place into the itinerary.

A happy birthday and happy customers..

I had my husbands surprise 50th birthday party at Fez about a month ago. I was a little sceptical at first because I had a few picky guests, but by the end of the night not only was everyone full and happy but raving over how good everything was. The service was excellent and we couldn't get enough of the atmosphere. I know I will definitely be back!

there are better restaurants

Fez is dark inside and rather small. Some of the food was tasty, most was unexceptional. The 'experience' is eating very messy food with your hands on an etched brass table that would be difficult to clean well. the soup was served with wooden spoons to eat with. How does the board of health let them do this? The service was OK, our waiter was pleasant. Service is very leisurely, they don't rush you. Dessert was oranges, apples and bananas. I can eat that at home. The belly ...view moredancer was fun and tried to engage the customers. There are much better restaurants, I won't go back here.view less

Never Going Back

Sneaky, profit hungry, and just wrong!! I went with a group of 11 people to enjoy the "Weekend Special" Fez Feast...your typical moroccan outing. The menu is misleading..and the prices on the bill pop-up from nowhere. We were charged a 20% gratuity - as stated on the menu for parties greater than 5 - which is completely understandable to me, being a waitress, although should be the the guests choice to tip above 18%, according to service. On top of the gratuity we were charged a $105 c...view morelean-up fee..which clean up is normally a part of the job description for a waiter. Our grand total including some martinis and mixed drinks came to $650!!! The food came to $275..so the rest comes from some crazy place (not everyone was drinking). The menu is misleading...it doesnt mention the price of the hooka...just says "available upon request" The food was not very good..i could've made it myself..not an exaggerating! The fruit at the end is whole fruit. I love exotic food and countries, but i would have rather spent that money at a really nice delicious restaurant. My advice is to save yourself and everyone you know some stress and money and DO NOT go there!!! Please spread the word.view less

worst restaurant ever!

this was my first time at a morrocan restaurant and i hated it! i was so excited to come here for my 21st bday with a group of 11 friends of whom made reservations but we had to wait 20 mins(it was freezing and raining outside)! the place was dark scary and had a zombie movie vibe. i was unsure the moment i walked in. The waiters were unattentive. there are no options on the weekend, must get 7 course meal! He spilled soup on two of my friends, there wasn't enough room to fit us i was ...view morevery dissappointed. The service was horrible, based on additional reasons we left as soon as soup came out and they made us pay for the whole meal regardless if we took the food with us or not. and added gratuity when we didnt' even stay for more than 20 mins. we took the food bc we were paying for it, tried it and threw it away. i was asking for my cake and they said one of my friends took it already i asked if he was sure and he said yes. so when i meet up with all my friends at home, they said none of them had my cake! that place ruined my birthday! everything i tasted was so bland, no flavor at all. not worth your money. you're better off going to your favorite restaurant even if you go all the time. theres a reason you go there all the time. listen to these reviews!view less
