I had read the stellar reviews and checked in early on a weekday with my golfing partner after playing at the adjacent golf course. It started out well with very welcoming and friendly service in a nicely decorated place with original Middle Eastern rugs, cushions and tables. They did play the same Gypsy King tape (Spanish) all over again:-) I... More

My dear friends were out to please me--I had one " lay-over" meal in San Francisco before boarding a flight to Taiwan. We hadn't dined together for at least four years, and they call San Francisco home. We are all centered on the food-- is it fresh, prepared with love and skill, surprising you just a bit, while satisfying you... More

Often times it is challenging to find good vegan and vegetarian options on a menu, but it was so easy here. Our pre-fixed dinner was truly authentic and delicious, and the service was impeccable. We also greatly appreciated the unique cultural atmosphere of the restaurant. Treat yourself to a unique experience-- you'll be pleased that you did!

Food was delicious and the atmosphere was great! We had 3 kids ranging from 2-9 who all really enjoyed it as well. They were very friendly with the kids, and the belly dancer even brought them up to dance with her!

I have eaten at El Mansour for almost 40 years and I enjoyed it every time. They have had the same chef for 29 years so the menu and food are consistently good. It had been several years since my last visit so I was very pleased that my favorite dishes were still available. All the lamb choices are scrumptious.... More

Off the beaten path, but worth an uber. You walk into this gem and are warmly greeted. Seated at low, plush couches, the server will come and wash your hands for you. Following that, you are in for a delicious multi-course meal and good wine. We have never been disappointed with any selection. You'll end with hot tea poured the... More

If you want a true family dining experience, this is your place! The food is great and it the restaurant takes you back as if you were in Morocco. There is some dancing and you may get chosen to do a little dancing. This is worth a trip if you're getting tired of hotel restaurants, etc.

What a unique cultural experience! Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and though there were families and groups, it didn't take away the romantic and cozy ambiance. The staff was welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious with a capital D. The belly dancing was an added bonus to what was already an amazing dining experience. A bit... More

Dress casual because you will be sitting on pillows. Mediterranean atmosphere to the hilt. I love the way they serve tea.

For an all around good time you can't beat belly dancing and eating with your fingers. Morocco is one of my favorite countries and this food is very authentic and yummy. The lamb with prunes brought back very fond memories. The lentil soup also reminded us of eating on the street with donkeys and dust. Fabulous.
