"Have not been to this restaurant in years when they were at another location. From stepping into the restaurant, you know this will be a fun experience from the atmosphere and tent-like setting. You can go order traditional feast or order a la carte. We opted for the traditional feast and it was very good. Bread, soup, salad, Bastilla, dessert and tea are all included with the traditional feast. We each ordered a different entre to share; quail, lamb, chicken and fish. All were good although the quail was alittle too well done. Belly dancer came while we were eating. Wish it had been before or after. Can't wait to go back with another group for this experience."

"Marrakech has kind and attentive waiters, a fun ambiance, and LOTS of delicious food. You could fill up on the chickpea soup, trio of salads, and dangerously addictive pastilla, but you shouldn’t, because the lamb tagine falls off the bone and melts in your mouth! Come hungry, because you don’t want to miss out on the baklava and mint tea -- a perfect ending to a terrific meal."

"Wonderful hairaira soup. Salads very well seasoned. Pastille good but not as tasty as the Moroccan pigeon. Main entrees outstanding with tagines, roasted lame or skewers of meat. The dessert was the Greek baklava and not as tasty as most. Too much crust for the filling. Had Lebanese beer but no Moroccan beer. Moroccan wines are very limited. The lamb with prunes(told him to put dried plums on the menu and more will order it) was the best I have had. Service was friendly but sort of just set on the table not served to each person. Close to a Five star meal. I rate very few more than the four stars on this evaluation.
The location is right on the main road and there is valet parking.

"After touting the fun of how great the Morrocan Feast can be to to fiance, we went to Marrakesh in Costa Mesa.
While we were waiting to be seated we saw that a large group of children maybe 7-10 years old were in the restaurant. Apparently it was a school group trying to experience a different eating experience. Frankly the inmates were running the asylum. Kids were dashing here and there being totally unruly.
The food was fair at best compared to other Morrocan Restaurants I have been to and the food was served almost with the need for the silverware that was on the table...another first.
Needless to say, we will not ever go back to this place again."

"We showed up and were seated. We waited for 20 minute s with no one who came to say hi or take drink or food orders. I went to hostess and stated my young kids were hungry and to please send someone over asap...she said food was on its way, I explained we hadn't ordered yet. We waited another 10 minutes with no one coming to our table so we left...Sad thing is I was visiting because I was reserved for a 40 person party and this was a visit to get a feel for the restaurant (which I told the hostess). I am now cancelling my reservation, as the service was so horrible."

"The atmosphere is great, the food is out of this world but the portion size seems to be smaller than my last visit a year ago. Quite a wine list but way above my budget. Don't get me wrong the place is one to try. A fork was unheard of on prior visits but now they give you a fork and smaller napkin. I guess as time changes so do the traditions.
don't go by the map on their web site because it is for their old location which was on Pacific Coast Highway.

"We dined here to celebrate a birthday and it was extremely pleasurable. We felt as though we were in another country, enjoyed the overall ambiance, the service, the food and the entertainment which consisted of a belly dancer. The pace of the meal was perfectly planned and extremely delicious. The value overall, compared to fine restaurants is simply outstanding. The wine list was vast and reasonable, and we left knowing we will be back."

"I haven't been here in several years. The service has definitely gotten worse. The waiters were slow and hardly came around to check on you. The food options and presentation had changed had changed which took away from the overall experience. They used to bring khobz around in a woven basket, now you get some sort of dry, sesame, wheat bread which they just leave at your table. The left overs used to be packed in a foil packet made into a swan shape, not its just a Styrofoam box. Even the belly dancer was old and out of shape. All in all, the changes they have made didn't enhance the experience and the things they could improve on seem to have stayed stuck in the past.
I'd recommend this but only as a one time visit for someone who doesn't remember how it used to be."

"This was my first time having Moroccan food, and I think that this is a great place for it. The ambience makes you feel like you are in North Africa with the tents and low tables. The service is good and the meal pacing doesn't make you feel like you have to rush. Also, if you go on a weekend, you can see the belly dancer, which just adds to the experience. To me the food was hit or miss, but I attribute this to my palate being inexperienced with these flavors. The mint tea at the end of the meal is not to be missed, and the chicken was delicious!"

"Dinner at Marrakesh is both a culinary treat and an imaginary trip to Morroco. The ambiance contributes to the dining experience. The prix-fixe Traditional Feast with chicken tagine was excellent. The Bastilla Filo dough stuffed with chicken, eggs and almonds was a delight; the chicken tagine was moist, tender and tasty; and the desert of tea and baklava was an appropriate conclusion to an excellent diner. This excellent diner was reasonably priced."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Marrakesh. The decor whisks you to some place faraway. Service is excellent and attentive and the food is very good. Recommended for a nice, different dining experience."

"Had a fabulous date night here with my husband! We wanted to try something out of the norm and this was just perfect in every way. The atmosphere was very exotic - the staff was extremely kind, helpful and attentive, and the food was wonderful!"
