Outstanding atmosphere and food!

On February 11, 2012 my fiance and I went to the Imperial Fez for a wonderful dining experience. The decorations were unique, making you feel like we were in Morocco, soft musique was playing. We were served a 5 course dinner which was absolutely outstanding, the Cornish hen is one of the best dishes I have ever had! Eating with our fingers made it even more exotic (forks were also provided). The service was very attentive and courteous, the servers kneeling in front of the table each time.

Then the bellydancers came out, and it was a real treat to watch them dance to the wonderfully engaging moroccan music! I was enthralled I must say and wished they could have danced nonstop!

The whole evening made us decide that we have to plan a trip to Morocco one day!

To quote my girlfriend when we sat down: ""Ew. Let's leave.""

I admit at first, I was worried too. It smelled like Chinese food in this place - yes, Chinese food. The waitresses were eating their lunch at the front of the restaurant when we walked in. Without standing up, one of them smiled and pointed to a table at the back.

The restaurant was empty, despite a handmade sign that said: ""Line moves quickly!"" Perhaps we mistimed our meal, showing up for breakfast at noon. Either way, the menu offers mostly breakfast foods including omelets, bacon, pancakes, and my favorite: eggs benedict.

I ordered the California eggs benedict and my girlfriend got the Crab eggs benedict. Within ten minutes our waitress delivered our meal. We were happily surprised. The plate was nicely made up. My eggs benedict had large, fresh slices of avocado and fresh grilled turkey. My girlfriend's eggs benedict had heaps of real crab meat, topped with capers.

The hollandaise sauce was buttery and rich and the eggs perfectly cooked. We noticed that my plate was garnished with a lemon wedge while my girlfriend's came with an orange slice. It was a small detail, but showed that they actually care about how they present their dishes here.

We repeatedly noted how tasty the food was, and how wrong we were to prejudge the experience.

Having said this, the place would probably have netted a higher score had the ambiance been nicer. Still, who am I - a tourist - to waltz into a place that is clearly liked by the locals and ask that place to change? If you are a tourist like me, you should be happy that a place like this exists at all. Two blocks from the Prescott Hotel on Post St. sits a great little place for breakfast.

Imperial fez Best Moroccan Food

I dinned at the Imperial Fez last month the food is exceptional the atmosphere the decor is the best I seeing in Atlanta. The service was so amazing, the staff had great details and what I was amazed about was, that you don’t have to say much your waiter is right there giving you the service you need without words. My fiancée and I felt we were in another country, the low seating, the fabric, the dancers everything was great. Thank you Imperial Fez for making our evening so special, we will definitely be back and bring friends.
We love it!!!!!!!!!

Every visit to this restaurant has been a pleasant

I have been to the Fez several times and have taken a lot of friends there. Every visit to this restaurant has been a pleasant experience; all you need to do is keep an open mind. Remember that you are going to have a Moroccan experience; eating Moroccan food in a Moroccan setting. In most other cultures outside ours in the US, the server will only come to your table to bring the menu, take your order, bring out the courses and then bring out the check. If you want the standard American service with the server coming over to you every couple of minutes to ask you how you're doing or how you are liking your food, then please do yourself a favor and go to Applebees or something more mundane.
If you do decide to try something different and pleasing to the palate, go for the delicious cornish hen appetizer and beef sheesh kebabs at the Imeprial Fez.
Oh, and the whole idea of this place is a leisurely experience; so make sure you have a full evening (at least 3-4 hours) to enjoy all that the Fez has to offer. If you're in a hurry and want the courses and the check to be brought out in quick succession and the server hovering over your head, as some other reviewers seem to need, then don't go to the Fez.

The worst ever

I was excited to go eat Moroccan Food with my wife for dinner but unfortunately it was my worst experience , first of all it started with the waiter who didn?t know anything about Moroccan food , he kept forgetting about bringing the necessary stuff to the table , for instance serving food (soup, appetizers) with no spoons ,bread with no knife..
second ,he brought us a Moroccan soup that tasted good but was extremely cold. We said okay no problem ,
we ordered 2 appetizers (kind of stuffed sea food ) believe or not , but it was warmed using microwave , if I wanted to eat microwave stuff I would go to McDonalds...
the stuffed feta cheese was horrible couldn?t eat. in the end they served us chicken Kebab that was half cooked . the bill was 70 , if you really want to waste your money then go there , that?s a shame that Moroccan food is represented that way pricy and not tasty.
Dont go there , no quality , no service , poor food , and just to tell you the Moroccan food is the best but not at imperial Fez

Waste of Time and Money

Went last night with a large group to celebrate a colleagues retirement. Firstly we had parking problems, staff told us to park in a certain place, when we did we were told we had to valet. So we parked our own car in the valet spot. awesome :(. We had been told we would get the set menu at a reduced price since we were bringing about 30+ people, but when we ordered and later paid we that was nowhere to be seen. The food was very poor, they talked everything up but it really disappointed. Each table had to share a plate of food, the ""Moroccan bread"" was basically stale American bread, we got the equivalent of a shot of soup, we shared a plate of basic salad, the other appetizer was gross, the main meal, I got the Lamb shank which was super fatty. Let me say I do enjoy different types of food and like Mediterranean cuisine, but this food seemed cheap and was not enjoyable. The staff were ok but constantly asked us about buying more expensive drinks or upgrading from the set menu to the ""special"" which was $20 more. The set menu came with a basic dessert but you could add a different dessert for extra. The waitress was not clear about the different dessert being extra and so basically suckered everyone into purchasing an extra dessert when they were already getting a free one. The real nightmare came at the end when they brought ONE BILL for about 30+ people for over $2000. The organizers of the night were partly to blame but surely the staff could have asked how we wanted the bill split. One of our party had to write down everyone's order on a piece of paper, we then had to CUE up and pay individually which took ages. It was an embarrassing end to a difficult night. Overall i was there from 6pm to almost 11pm and spent about $130 on a meal for my wife and I. The belly dancers were very skilled, the only good thing about the place. The food was just SO cheap and disappointing it seemed the place was all about getting you to spend as much money as possible while having you believe you were having some kind of ""cultural"" experience. I could go on and on about witnessing wait staffs constant bickering etc etc but basically just avoid this place.

5 Course Meal w/ Enchanting Belly Dancing Show

I was at Imperial Fez last night with my brother-in-law.
We had purchased a $60 groupon deal and we were treated extremely well and would like to commend all the servers who treated us like royalty and the dancer who put on a hell of a show. I will definitely come back soon.

Wonderful Experience!

Wanted to take my daughter here because she is engaged to a transplanted Moroccan. We all wanted to experience a part of his culture, and this was much cheaper than a trip to Casablanca. The food was delicious, I had one of the lamb dishes, my husband had the beef ribs, and my daughter, who is vegan (and they made every effort to accommodate her special dietary needs) had the vegetable tagine. We loved Andrea, the belly dancer and even got to dance with her. Collin, our waiter, was most attentive and efficient. And when my camera battery died and I wanted a picture of us with Andrea, chef Rafiha graciously let us use his camera and emailed us the pictures the next day. Thanks to all for this memorable, fun experience

Entertaining

The atmosphere and entertainment are what makes this place fun. The food was good, not great and it gets pricey.Once you have been, it is off the list, unless you need a place to go with a very large group, then I would return, but at this point, did it.

Sorta good

We have been to several restaurants and I can't help but compare the quality of food and services I get from one place to another. This restaurant was sort of good, but not really exceptional. The food they serve was so so. To top it off, the service was not prompt.

Not worth it!!!!!!!!!

My family and I went to Imperial Fez for dinner thinking it was going to be a fun night for all of us but on the contrary it turned out to be awful; a huge disappointment!!!
1st of all, my husband and I both ordered the menu.
My lamb couscous came out with two tiny pieces of lamb! If I would have wanted a veggie couscous, I would have ordered a veggie couscous!
2nd of all, they had a special going on that night with half price pitchers of mojito mentioned on the menu on the table as well as at the front door. Well come to find out they were not doing the special anymore since last week!!!! So why are you still promoting it?????????
On top of that, they had another deal going stating that if you order 2 menus, you get a free hookah at the end of your meal! Well of course, that special was no longer offered even though advertised in front of our eyes!!!!!
What a rip off this place is! I will never step foot into Imperial Fez ever again!!!!

skip this place

I went to Imperial Fez last Saturday with a friend to try this restaurant for the first time. Although the belly dancers were good, there is not much else that was good. The courses were so bland and everything was served at room temperature. The worst part of the experience was the waitress - perhaps she should work in a morgue if she truly dislikes being around people.

We would have at least liked eating this mediocre food at the same time but my friend's main course came first and mine came ten minutes later. At the next table, the family was upset because everyone at their table had finished eating, but the waitress kept forgetting the wife's meal. Here is a hint Imperial Fez: People sitting at the same table generally LIKE eating their meals at the same time.

Overall, never again. Please do not waste your money or your time (2.5 hours). The only reason I tried it is I had a certificate - skip the Groupon offers on this place. I would have rather went to Taco Bell. Seriously.

It was out of this world.

I was at the Imperial fez on May 22nd, 2010 and nothing could have prepared us for what was ahead. We walked thought the door and a young gentleman greeted us he was to my surprise friendly and welcomed us with a warm smile, we felt as if we had just come into our own home. After we took off our shoes a woman set us at our table it was rather busy, however we were greeted by very friendly young lady he name was “Latria” I think. However she was very considerate as we become aware she had other tables as well nevertheless there wasn’t a moment the she did come to ask us how we were doing and if we need anything to make our evening more comfortable and pleasant we were so thrilled for we had never be to an Genuine Moroccan Restaurant before and we had heard so much about the Imperial Fez we on the edge of are seat when the dancers came out they we enchanting and the rhythmic music made us want to dance but we were both to coy to partake it the dancing activities. As for the meal we thought the food was figment of our imagination because nothing in the world could be as aromatic and mouth-watering as that five course meal but it wasn’t a figment of our imagination everything for the soup to the dessert was out of this world down to the very last crumb. Now we would like to thank everyone we motion especially ""L atria"" how work as hard as she could to make our night magical and unforgettable.

Food with history

Chef Rafih provides exotic surroundings with complex flavors, tender meats, delicious ideas, and gorgeous belly dancers. The Imperial Fez is a place for the celebration of life, offering an escape from the normal Atlanta restaurant scene. Take a couple hours out of your day to pull up a pillow (and maybe a hookah), watch a belly dancer play with fire, and enjoy a great meal you won't soon forget.

The only drawback is that the waitstaff has a habit of vanishing for long periods of time, not refilling your drinks for 2 hours, and then upon leaving having the nerve to run up to you and say, ""The tip was not included!"" when your meal has been comped...

Fun, Experience-Centered Moroccan

Located in Buckhead on Peachtree Street near Piedmont Hospital in a shopping center, Imperial Fez is one of those once-happening, concept type restaurants that began popping up around Atlanta during the 70s. The Moroccan food is good, and delivered in courses but the real draw of the restaurant are the kitschy-quasi-traditional customary practices such as hand washing, shoe removal, and sitting on the floor. Belly dancers entice diners who must realize ahead of time that table conversation can be somewhat limited based on all the pomp, though the whole experience can be fun for a large group. It is definitely something every Atlantan should experience at least once so make your way over and enjoy the whole experience.

nothing Imperial about my experience

I went to Imperial Fez last night. The evening started off good and our waiter was attentive, at first. One belly dancer came out and danced for like 15 minutes in one area of the room. You literally had to get out of your seat to see her. The food came out warm, instead of hot, and the recommended drinks left something to be desired. Once we were served we never saw the waiter again! The custom is to wash your hands at the table, before and after your meal. We washed our hands prior to eating, but afterward, no sign of the guy. He didn't even bring us our check. We got that from the waiter working the table next to ours. I felt very slighted. After this experience and paying the hefty price for such shabby service, I definitely will not be back.
