A Unique Dining Experience- Zagat's

General Info

Explore, and allow the true magic of Marrakech reveal itself. Richly colored tapestries and lustrous brass wares line the walls of this traditional Moroccan Tent setting. Teak inlaid tables sit throughout the room encircled by low couches. Dine on delicious Moroccan food served in the unique Moroccan manner enhanced by beautiful belly dancers. Stay as long as you wish, there is no rush here. Service begins with washing each person's hands with lightly scented rose water. It successfully sets the stage for the highly anticipated, extravagant six-course meal offered by Marrakech. Silverware is available upon request, but customers are encouraged to eat with their fingers in the traditional Moroccan way. Enjoy a six course meal that begins with tender shrimp scampi (acknowledged as the best in Las Vegas) followed by Harira Soup consisting of lentil, lemon, and spices, Salade Marrakech, Shish Kebob, Cornish hen with Cous Cous, and for dessert, B'Stilla, a Moroccan favorite served with mint tea. The staff appreciates your patronage and will do our utmost to make your visit with us memorable and comfortable. As Nevada's first Moroccan restaurant, founded in 1979 by Master Moroccan Chef Mustafa Alioua, Marrakech is at the forefront of the much requested cultural diversity by Las Vegans, and visitors alike.

No expectations

My 3 daughters and I came here for girls night (weeknight). We purchased 2 groupons. The restaurant is small and cozy, but when we didn't order alcoholic drinks the waiter seemed a bit put off. We found the waitstaff unfriendly. The bellydancer (1) was good, but only danced about a total of 15 min while we were there. The food was good, but 1st 3 courses were very salty, bread is advertised to be served with each course but after 2 we had to ask for it. The traditional hand washing was only for parties of two as we watched more customers come in and observed that. When we asked about it were told there was a restroom where we could wash. It was a bit rushed and at the end of dessert the manager came over and asked if we needed a taxi. I guess that was our Q to leave. We tipped only the traditional 15%. It's an okay experience once, but don't have too high expectations.

Fantastic Food and lots of fun

Unhurried six course meal. All the courses were fantastic and the service was just as good.

Great place to have dinner with friends.

The belly dancers are great too.

A joyful Oasis

If you want a unique and relaxing dinning experience while in Las Vegas, please consider the Marrakech Restaurant. This authentic Moroccan eatery offers excellent cuisine and hospitality in an informal atmosphere.

The menu is abundant but simple. It consists of a six-course, traditional meal which begins with delicious bread, moves on with soup and kabobs before ending with a yummy desert. Before starting your meal, your server will invite you to rinse your hands with warm rose water ? a quaint Middle Eastern custom.

Another custom present at the Marrakech is one or more lovely belly dancers who perform throughout the evening and will, of course, visit your table. If a belly dancer asks you to join her, don?t be shy; you may discover a hidden talent.

Choices of where to eat in Vegas abound. Please do not miss the unique experience offered at the Marrakech.

Awesome experience!!!

The food was great, the staff extremely friendly and will definitely go there again! I cant stop telling my friends back here in Texas about this place! The Belly Dancers.....WOW! Andrea I think was her name. My goodness! We all fell in love with her! If you have never been to a Mororrocan restaurant, this is the one to go to. This will be one of our stops every time we go to Las Vegas. Thank you Ginger and Tim for taking us!

What a night out......GREAT place to start things out right!!!

What a place to start things out right!! We went on a Saturday night with 18 guys and it was a BLAST. The food served was fantastic and the belly dancers were even better. The service was right on the mark with the exception of feeling a little rushed. When we left there we couldn?t stuff another morsel into our stomachs, so come hungry? As for the drinks, we had been paying $15 a drink throughout the weekend so it was nice to a drink beer/drink for $4/$6?I highly recommend this place, no matter what size party, especially if you want to have a blast!!!!

Girls Night Out- incredible experience!

I have on many occasions wanted to write this much deserving review on Marrakech. First I would like to say it was an honor to eat at this restaurant! I was a little sceptacle to pick this restaurant at first not knowing what to expect and knowing the ten ladies I had invited to join me were very particular. Walking into the place felt as if you were truly in a different country and it had such a wonderful atmosphere. Each and every course was absolutely scruptous- different from any restaurant that I have ever been to. The service was exceptional, the one owner was actually our server- how much more hands on can you get! The dancers were truly beautiful to watch as they encouraged us to dance, and dance we did! From the Jersey Girls to all of you that read this review, we have all been to many restuarants but his place is truly an experience and this will definitely be on my stop list when I come into Las Vegas again! To Sharief,and family, you were an absolute unexpected delight!!

Best Everything!

Okay - don't be put off by the location off-strip. I hear that a lot of good gems can be found off the strip anyway, and this was definitely a diamond in the rough! Hipbec is right, we DID stay for four hours!!! But we absolutely enjoyed ourselves and we really didn't want to leave. The belly dancers are beautiful AND talented, the owner (Hi, Dad!) is so sweet, and his son knows how to make some really good cocktails!!! I second the request for ""The Shariefalicious"" shots! And, the food was excellent! I loved eating with my hands. The soup was yummy! I loved the shrimp (not overcooked or chewy...just right! And the sauce it was in was to die for), the veggie platter was a nice and refreshing break, the cornish hen dish was so awesome...practically falling off the bone...and it tasted hella good! The kebobs were yummy! The dessert was subtly sweet...if I had the room, I would've eaten it all! It was all so freakin' good! I loved the splash of rose water to wash our hands at the end of the meal. The service was amazing. When (not if) you go, be sure to bring lots of bills to tip the dancers - they're really good at what they do and hella easy on the eyes! Don't be afraid to cheer them on and dance with them when they encourage you to! You'll have more fun if you do! And stick some tips in the servers pockets as well - our server (the owner's son, Sharief) was very attentive...gave us great service and was just all around wonderful to us!!! I'll be going back there on my next visit to Vegas. Thank you, Marrakech, for being the absolute highlight of my bachelorette party! You rock!!! Really - you do!

Highlight of our Bachalorette Party!

This family owned business [father (owner), 2 sons (servers), & daughter (belly dancer)] welcomed us with open arms & big smiles. This restaurant had it all: awesome food, great belly dancers entertainment, fun servers, and a positive vibe. Our bachalorette party stayed there for 4 hours! We were very welcomed & were encouraged to dance, clap, & cheer while the performances were on. You will not leave here hungry, the food is unbelievably good. This was the first time I have had Moroccan food and I was worried that I might not like it, but they served food that everyone likes. The cocktails are tasty & strong, watch out... they creep up on you! I recommend the specialty mai tai and ask for the 'Sharifalicious' shot (a shot made by the owner's son). Sharif, our server was fun & witty (he made our night) with our group of 7 rowdy girls. I highly recommend this restaurant for the food, fun, people, and entertainment. Plan on spending some hours here, its not an eat & leave quickly kind of place. Sit back & watch the beautiful belly dancers or jump up and dance with them! You won't be disappointed!

Our Annual Christmas-New Years Place

Morroco may not bring to mind Christmas, but between Christmas and New Years, our family of eight celebrates with the staff at the Marrakech. It is a fabulous atmosphere that our little kids love, in large part due to the owner and staff loving to see the kids enjoy a unique meal. The belly dancers liven up the place and always give our daughters a chance to shake it. In short, the Marrakech should be on anyone's ""must list"" for Las Vegas.

A great Las Vegas tradition

My family and I have been going to the Marrakech for years, we are natives of Las Vegas, and support the long time business owners in our town. This is a great place for a birthday party, or a romantic dinner for two. The dancers are very skilled and artistic, the food is excellent, but it's a lot of food, so come hungry!!

The owner is always very gracious and friendly, and buys my family/friends a round of after dinner drinks, as a thank you for being patrons. The waiters are all fun and outgoing, very family oriented. I gie them an A+

Tantalizing to all senses

My first time was a Saturday night for my boyfriend's birthday. As you walk into the small-medium dining room, you are welcomed by warm colors and low lights. The shrimp scampi appetizer is served with bread and this app' is full of flavor. Contrary to what ""Along came Polly"" leads us to believe, Moroccan food is not necessarily spicy. The entire dinner was delicious. I loved that you eat with your hands before the main course.
That night, a really large party was there, and we received as much attentive service as they did. The entire staff was really nice (and they weren't fakin' it). The Belly dancers were very beautiful and being a belly dancer, myself, I appreciated the talent the women possessed. I was really surprised to have enjoyed such a culture-filled night in a classy environment in Las Vegas of all places. I visit Las Vegas a few times a year, exploring off-strip restaurants as much as possible, and I will definitely be visiting this place every time I'm in Vegas.

Best place to go for a special event

Though it doens't look like much from the outside, the Marrakech is a literal oasis. Very true to it's North African flavor, the Marrakech provides a six course meal complete with dessert and entertainment. Make sure you make reservations and let them know if you eat kosher (one course is shrimp, but they may have a substitute).

A Perfect Night!

I had a small wedding, w/ only 15 guests. We went to Marrakech & absolutely loved it! I had some reservations about the menu, but the food was excellant. They even provided vegetarian alternatives for my guests as well. I was treated like a queen. The belly dancing was a blast (my husband & I did the ""dollar dance"", belly dancing style). It was like all of the workers & guests eating there were all celebrating the wedding. I wouldn't change a thing!!! Great food, service, fun, & memories.

ONE WORD: INCREDIBLE

100% authentic! I threw my parents an anniversary party at this Moroccan Oasis, and it was spectacular! My mom is Moroccan, and she insisted that this eatery embodies and conveys the hospitality of the Moroccan people! The atmosphere,food, belly dancing, and service were great! The owner even came out and gave us complimentary champagne for the anniversary. We will surely return...

NotAuthentic-OnlyMoroccanInLasVegas-Unfortunately

The first course was an Italian style shimp scampi dish. A soup and salad followed that was more traditionally Moroccan. The delicious kabobs were beef, not lamb as was expected. The entree of cornish hen with couscous was dry and bland, no sauce. The only nod to the exotic was the raisins and prunes in the couscous. The biggest disappointment? The forks brought with the entree. Surely these should have only been brought out if requested. Dessert was very good, but was a replacement of the traditional b'stilla of filo & spiced chicken offered in most Moroccan restaurants. These changes probably were made to be more palatable to the average American, but are a shame. The mint tea tasted overwhelmingly of chlorine and should have been made with filtered water. I would have liked a choice of entree. Where are the preserved lemons, tagines, b'stilla of traditional Moroccan cuisine?

A Gem in the lights of Las Vegas - off the strip!

Three of us went to celebrate a birthday, and a great time was had by all. The bellydancers spun their charm around the room every 20 minutes or so, allowing us to enjoy our delicious meal in a relaxing and enchanted atmosphere. The 6 course menu suprised us all, each item was quite tasty and the portions were enough for five people.
Each of us in the party thought that the $32 per person was well worth it. In Las Vegas that is a inexpensive way to enjoy an evening (drinks extra!)
We will definitely come back! Perfect for a night out with friends, or an entertaining date.

Poor Treatment - bad reservations policy

I used to think this place was good, but now I don't. I've been here multiple times and even sent other groups, but never again.

I called 6 weeks in advance to make a reservation. At that time, it was fine.
But, 4 weeks later, less than 2 weeks before we were to go, they called me back and told me that they had to bump me to another time because there was a larger party that had booked the entire place. Therefore, I had to change my 7:30 reservation for a group of 8 to 5:30. Everyone knows how hard it is to find a restaurant for a large group. Plus, in Vegas, who eats at 5:30? But, just because they had gotten another reservation from a larger party, they bumped us! What kind of policy is that? Reservations go to the highest bidder? Ridiculous!
