Good food and great entertainment makes for a very memorable evening. Starting with the food, I really enjoyed the pita bread and hummus, spanish meatballs with ginger saffron sauce, and the spicy vegetables. The dessert was tasty as well and I had a filo pastry and mint tea. The tea was amazingly good! I love that they also have belly dancers which makes your experience a lot of fun. Would highly recommend that you check this spot out for a unique dining experience in Atlanta.

This place is not a Moroccan restaurant. I've been to Morocco. I ate at maybe 15 restaurants between Cassablanca, Rabat, Fez, Marrakech and Meknes. I ate at several riads, a few Berber homes and cooked with a chef in Fez. This place is nothing like what I experienced there. It's more like a Moroccan themed strip club that serves expensive, mediocre food where the girls don't take their clothes off. It's what they have to do to sell Moroccan food in Atlanta because few people here are familiar with the culture. Imperial Fez is something special and unique that caters to the Atlanta party / special occasion crowd. If I'm being honest, the owner probably shouldn't change anything because it's clearly successful and the patrons don't seem to know any better. Our meal for two people was $76 + tip for the waitress and tip for the valet, your only parking option. The Food ----------------------------------------------- They served the food in a traditional order of soup, appetizers (called salads in Morocco), Entree, desert/tea. The soup was ok. The bread was hard and cold. More like a biscotti. Our waitress called it "Moroccan bread" and generally put the word Moroccan in front of a lot of the things were served. All the bread I was served in Morocco was soft, crusty and often warm. The Bastilla was small but good, probably the best part of our meal. They served it as an appetizer and usually it's a main course and larger. The Harissa was very bad. It tasted like tobasco sauce and the carrot salad was equally disappointing. The Chicken tagine was not good. First of all, it didn't actually come out in a Tagine. When I asked about this, I was told they didn't have any tagines. It came out on a white plate and tasted nothing like a real tagine. No preserved lemons and a sprig of rosemary? The desert included fruit and a small pastry with a fruit filling and mint tea, the second best part of our meal. The Seating ----------------------------------------------- The low chairs low and uncomfortable because your eating over your knees. Again, nowhere in Morocco did I sit on anything like that. If you've never been to Morocco, or eaten real Moroccan food, this place probably will seem interesting, exotic and fun. If you have been, it will seem bizarre, uncomfortable, cheesy and disappointing.

One of a kind Moroccan restaurant in Atlanta. Great pre-fixe menu options. Make sure to check out the belly dancers and fire dancers on the weekend!

The only authentic thing here was the picture of the king. Unlike anything I had in Morocco.

I went to Imperial Fez for the first (and more probably than not, also the last) time with a group of about ten friends for a birthday celebration. We were seated rather quickly, but that was about the only thing that was quick. It took almost four hours to receive all four courses of our meal. I could understand if the restaurant was packed with people, but there were only three other tables with guests. Every other table was empty. I shudder to imagine what service is like with a packed house. Our waiter was very polite, but his jovial nature could not overcome the unacceptable delays in service. As for the food, it was "eh." It was not terrible, but it also was not spectacular. It was just okay. Given the price point, I was expecting something better than okay. The white sangria was terrible. It tasted like extra sweet moscato wine with a splash of peach schnapps. It was way too sweet and did not contain any fresh fruit. The belly dancing kept my guests and I fairly entertained, but there was only one belly dancer. She was quite impressive, but apparently, there is usually a group of five to six belly dancers who perform. We were rather disappointed when we realized that there was only one dancer. Needless to say, our visit Imperial Fez was quite the disappointing experience.

we have been frequent diners at imperial fez for over 20 years. we have taken chef raffi's cooking classes. it is one of our favorite experiences ever! . . . til my birthday this year. in an attempt to appeal to the american diner, the imperial fez has changed their community dining style to individual portions and has changed their dishes to suit the american palate. we spent so much money for the experience we had come to know and love, only to be so very very very disappointed. even the belly dancing was toned-down, presumably to prevent in any way offending anyone! i always felt the heart, the color, the culture of morocco in times past. now it is just another pablum for the masses restaurant. my birthday was a real bust. sad that to stay in business the imperial fez feels it should abandon its identity. i fear this will be its undoing. though, even if it survives, i will never go again. i am truly blessed to have known chef raffi and to have experienced his true vision in the earlier days of the imperial fez.

This was the Best experience of my life! My first time here, and definitely will not be my last. I took my friend here, and he said he had a greater time here, than he did on his Birthday 2 months ago. I can still feel the great energy from that place. Lovely. Army Veteran, 27yrs old.
