    My much anticipated visit, based on the rave reviews here, was squashed when we received our food. My husband's tagine lacked the zing of true Moroccan food, and we don't even think that it was actually cooked in a tagine, as the chicken was too dry. The presentation was disappointing too as it was served on a plate as opposed to the traditional way of being served in the tagine. My bastilla was also lacking spice and a little scarce on the chicken. There wasn't much atmosphere in the place, so if one expects to be magically transported back to Morocco, then disappointment awaits.

    This place is Amazing!

    I had a completely different experience than the previous reviewer...the food is out of this world. The service was very friendly but I will admit it lacked speed. But in the end a full belly and satisfied taste buds is worth it.

    The poor service not worth the food.

    With much anticipation we went to Cafe Mogador. Waited for 15 minutes for a waitress. Waited another 45 minutes for the food, which was quite good. Waited another 20 minutes for the check. The atmosphere was so loud and that we sat in silence most of the meal because we couldn't hear above the noise. Even the people sitting next to us had to tackle the waitress to even get a menu. All the staff was running like mad, but nothing seemed to be getting done. When inquiring about our meal, we were quickly brushed off by the waitress as if we were intruding on her busy scheudule, which didn't include waiting on guests.

    Pleased with everything

    I had the opportunty to visit this restaurant and was quite pleased with everything. I ordered the lamb tagine with the charmaoulla sauce over rice. It was out of this world. Now I have my husband and friends hooked on this place.

    Delicious Tagines / Mint Tea

    The tagines (meat stew usually served over cous-cous) are delicious. There is a choice of chicken or lamb in several different aromatic sauces. My personal favorite sauce is the preserved lemon and olives. The mint tea served in the traditional silver teapot and small glasses is refreshingly minty, body-warming, and deliciously sugared. The other dishes on the menu are decent, but not outstanding in comparison to other restaurants in the area that serve Middle Eastern food. The service leaves something to be desired, but the taste of the tagines to me make it a worthwhile dining experience. The atmosphere is most certainly more hip and sophisticated than some of the other Middle Eastern food joints in the area.

    Not bad, not amazing, burnt kebab

    Our waitress must have been having a bad day. The food was ok...good hummus. Pita is needing work. Cold and not as good as neighboring Hummus Place or Chickpea. I'd go back just to mix up the flavors of these 3 places.

    Really enjoyable and a great deal!

    I live in New York but I'm currently away at college. Over winter break, I try to take advatage of NY food as best I can. I went here with my mom. I had the falafel sandwich. It comes with french fries, and they readily substituted salad at my request. The salad was lovely and the sandwich was delicious. My mom got the chicken tagine with apricots and prunes. My mom loved it and the portion was very generous. The only drawback was that the food took a long time to come. This was probably because we were there during brunch time when everyone else was ordering eggs and the tagine probably took longer. Our meal including tax and tip was $20. I can't wait to go back.
