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!

It's fun, good food, good drinks, great atmosphere. Great to go with a friend or two, but I wouldn't recommend more than a group of 4 or 5 since it's a pretty small place.

I took my boyfriend out for a birthday dinner on a Tuesday night, and at first it seemed like a cozy, lazy place. The tempo picked up a little as the night wore on, but the service was good, but the wait-staff was not exactly knowledgeable in each dish. The falafel platter was excellent and filling, but we shared it as an appetizer. The chicken bastilla was very filling -- I could only finish half of it -- but a bit dry. The cous-cous dish, specifically the lamb cous-cous was juicy and tender. All in all, highly recommended if you're in the area (St. Mark's). I would sit away from the back where everyone goes to the bathroom, which is quaint as well.
