This is the place to go if you are in no hurry, and don't mind relaxing with friends for an intimate dinner....the food was very fresh and tasty, their dessert list alone can get me to come back again, and the atmosphere is one of the best I've ever experienced. The staff really lets you enjoy your food with no pressure to rush you out, and the prices are very affordable. Their nightly specials are really interesting and unique. Bottom line: it was excellent quality dining and I'd definitely go back for more!

This is definitely one of my favorite places. The atmosphere is very sexy and relaxed (although it does get crowded on weekends), and the food is consistently wonderful. I've never had bad service or a disappointing experience. My one qualm is that the delivery hours are shorter than I'd like (but then again, I'm very much a night owl). It's a great date place!

I had been to this cool St. Marks hangout for dinner many times, with mixed results. But a friend suggested brunch and after 2 visits I've found my new favorite venue! Order the eggs halumi, 2 poached eggs with grilled tomatoes and halumi cheese w/ pita on the side. I am hooked as you will be too. Our waitress was fun, friendly, and sexy as hell...an added bonus.

I have been here twice and both times it has been excellent. I highly recommend getting any of the couscous or hummus dishes for dinner, mango sorbet for dessert and any of the port wines for an after-dinner drink. The atmosphere is very cozy, and if you sit in the front, a perfect place for people-watching. Both times there was a bit of a wait, but the hostess went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and got a good seat when available. It's one of my NYC favorites!

I've been here easily 10 times, and usually get the amazing kebabs. Ask for the hot sauce for another level of kick. The hummus, tabouli, and olive appetizers are all great to start off with some pita, and the prices are very reasonable.

Cozy atmosphere, this place gives you bang for your buck. I've been there with as many as 10 people from work, to as little as 1 close friend, and I am NEVER disappointed. I've eaten everything on the menu and my taste buds are never bored. The chicken bastilla is one of my favorites and honorable mention is of course, the hummus! Definitely a must go to kind of place!

Name three other places in the city that have so consistently provided superlative eats for so many years and you have probably been eating at Mogador for as long as its history. AND it matches price to quality every step of the way. My wife and i have been eating here for years, and we are both super foodies. In fact, we still argue over who came there first, because we both want to take the credit for so amazing a find. If you haven't eaten here yet, you are in for a blessed discovery. I should also mention that if you are the type of person for whom being served conscientously by someone happy improves your meal, then this place. The only downside is that the secret is long out, so expect a wait if you are coming with a big group for brunch. Unexpected atmosphere if you go on a Friday nite, candles and all!
