Atlanta >Imperial Fez
“Dancers were fun to watch, but couldn't see main dancing area from where we were sitting.”
“The food came out warm, instead of hot, and the recommended drinks left something to be desired.”
“bit pricey but if you like Moroccan cuisine it's the best around.”
“We've been to the restaurant several times on the past few years, and it still one of the best options in town for a fun dinner night.”
“It's a great place to take someone on a date.”
“Be prepared to pay for every refill and don't expect any compensation for their bad service!”
“It was expensive cuisine in a really nice environment.”
“The carpets, tapestries and pillows gave the room a plush, comfortable, relaxed feeling and after settling in for a few minutes, it was hard to believe I was actually in Atlanta.”
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.
Disappointed....Expensive and TERRIBLE Service. I went here for a friend's birthday and was disappointed. Although the food was pretty good and the experience was unique the service was awful. It was difficult to get refills on water (if any at all), we had an array of waitstaff, waitress was slow and could not answer questions about the dishes, and when it came time to pay the bill we had to wait over a half hour to get the attention of the waitstaff. For these prices and the previous reviews I expected ALOT more. I would never go back to this tacky establishment and I would never recommend it to anyone else.
The waitress took the time to explain everything about the Moroccan dining style.
I ordered a sauteed shrimp, my girlfriend ordered a lamb cutlet, they were both wonderful.
The fire dance is amazing.
We had a great time during dinner. We will definitely come back.
The Place I want to get engaged and marry at. Me and my Girl went to the Fez 11/14/09 It was a our 5 year anniversary of being together we had been to the sister restaurant on the 7th and the manager told us about the fez and I planned our dinner there. Everything was wonderful right down to the very last crumb/ drop the Ambiance set the mood for a romantic evening and the service was perfect they made us relax, it felt like we were having a candlelit dinner in Morocco it was if we fell in love all over again. The Entertainer was beautiful belly dancer who danced like a majestic butterfly it was wonderful. My girlfriend doesn't know but I'm gonna ask her to Marry me at the fez and if all goes the way I know it will I'm gonna just rent out the fez and get married there it's our perfect Moroccan wedding right at home in Atlanta.
Awesome Food & Entertainment.
This is an unique restaurant where you not only have a special dinning experience with a great food but you also get to watch a beautiful belly dancing show.
The fire dance is fantastic!! The food is great. We had a great time, and I'm definitely coming back again with some more friends.
Best Food I've Had In Atlanta!.
One of my hobbies for the past thirty-something years has been to learn about and experience foods from different parts of the world so I have eaten at many ethnic eateries during that time. I am well acquainted with a number of different cuisines including Lebanese, Persian, Hebrew (Kosher), Greek, Southern Indian, Pakistani, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese (Mongolian, Szechwan and Cantonese), Spanish, Italian, French, German, Mexican, Tex-Mex, Lowcountry Southern, Cajun, etc. However, I would have to say that the five course meal I ate at Imperial Fez was absolutely the BEST food I have ever eaten in my life!
The staff was very friendly and accomodating and made me feel more like I was an honored guest being entertained in their home rather than a patron at a commercial establishment. The carpets, tapestries and pillows gave the room a plush, comfortable, relaxed feeling and after settling in for a few minutes, it was hard to believe I was actually in Atlanta. I felt like I was dining in a Sultan's tent in some exotic, faraway desert. By the end of the evening, I fully expected to see camels instead of cars when I stepped outside.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard that there would be belly dancing; however, The belly dancers were attractive and charming and delivered a tasteful, entertaining performance. The dancing was definitely sensual and beautiful, but there was nothing lewd or overly suggestive about it.
The Imperial Fez is not the place to go for a quick bite to eat! I had planned to go out clubbing afterward, but I ended up having such a great time that I didn't want to leave! I ended up spending four hours of total bliss at the Fez that night and enjoyed it much more than I would have if I had stuck to my original agenda for the evening. I was sorry when it was time to go; however, I will definitely return for an encore!
Great food, great atmosphere, great hosts!.
I have been to the Imperial Fez on numerous occassions over the past years, and have never been disappointed by the food and atmosphere. I do not know many restaurants where the chef & owner makes a real effort to meet as many guests personally as possible. But at the Imperial Fez both Rita & Rafih (owners) are extremely accessible and always eager to make everyone's dining experience a special occassion.
If you love an eating-adventure then this is your restaurant! The layering of exotic spices and aromas, as well as the fun presentation of the food, really make this a unique eating venue.
When I want to impress family members & friends, as well as colleagues when they come to visit Atlanta I always bring them to the Fez.
I have tried most of the dishes on the menue, but have to say that the Moroccan Lentil Soup, the Moroccan salads, and the B'stella appetizer (w/ Cornish Hen, almonds, honey all wrapped in a flakey crust) are my favorite! Top that off w/ the delicious Moroccan Mint Tea and I'm in heaven!
Have any doubt about the FEZ.
I'M still an employee of the imperial fez!!!
And it's with great pride that I'm sharing my experiences at the Imperial fez with you.
For most of you, it's about dinning for special occasions, change,discovering something new, impressing someone or even just celebrating life.
But what you don't know is: What is imperial fez anyway?The question seems simple. But the truth is, it?s just not that easy to answer.I can tell you that since we opened our doors in Atlanta, Georgia in 1991. Fez?s Delicatessen has become one of the city's leading restaurant in it's own right. With an emphasis on education, flavor, tradition and integrity of ingredients, we?ve worked to create a living, breathing, active culinary laboratory where one can experience everything from lamb couscous, to hand-picked preserved lemons, to hand made bread and pretty much everything in between. And in the process we?ve gained a reputation for sourcing unique, full flavored, traditionally made foodstuffs prepared from the heart of it's founders.
Who are serving your food at the Imperial Fez?
In most restaurants, you are being serve by young adults who are seeking ways to make fast money to get on with their lives. But at IMPERIAL FEZ, our guests are taken on an exotic journey, you are invited to dine as you would be by family, friends or neighbors. The hosts are educated individuals who speak several different languages for the most part and who take their guests well-being whole heartedly.
Most hosts at the Imperial Fez are corporate employees or college students, yet they still take great pride in their work. Mainly because it's not about the money or the title, but about working in loving and caring environment...just like home! It's about being part of something unique and bigger than the ordinary. IT'S about working with the coolest little company in America!!!
I CAN GO ON FOR DAYS AND YEARS, but I'm sure you don't have that kind of time. So come see us and see for yourself.
Great Food, Best Lamb Kebob I Ever Had.
I don't know what spices and herbs they put into their lamb kebob, but they are perfect, juice and to die for.
If you want something different you definitely this restaurant it's the place to go.
I good place to take your girlfriend with a great food, cushion seats and some live belly dancing show.
Nothing special and they overcharged my credit card for it.
Me and my girlfriend went as a first time visit. The atmosphere was different but nothing spectacular, the furniture and interior of the building looked cheap and the rugs and pillows looked like they were dusty and needed to be cleaned.
We were seated by our waitress who made a few comments to us that were completely unprofessional and rude. She then took 15 minutes before taking our orders for food. My girlfriend asked for silverware to eat one of the dishes and the waitress lied and said that they didn't have any. She really just didn't want to bring any out because she did concede that they do bring out silverware for the desert and my girlfriend had to ask instantly again for her to bring out silverware for this particular dish. It seemed more like we had someone who wanted to contend with us and be difficult rather than wait on us. She had an attitude and didn't smile the whole time. I expected better.
The food itself was just so so, again nothing special that would leave an impression or make me want to go back. The entertainment was a belly dancer who came out twice and who looked more like a tattooed stripper.
I wanted to reflect the poor service to our waitress with the tip I was going to give her but the tips are automatically factored into the bill (no wonder they don't' have servers with motivation or incentive to serve well) so I didn't get a chance to. The bill came out to $110 for 2 people, I found out on the way home that the waitress overcharged my credit card by $18 which I had to call the next day to complain about. When I called to complain I told the manager about the waitress and the poor service we received and he insisted he would get to the bottom of it and call me back. Its been over a week and I still haven't received a call back from him.
Based on what I paid for and was expecting I was let down and cannot recommend this place to any of my friends.
