Mogador use to be a very special cool spot in the EV. not anymore. It turned just like many other restaurants, with no personality. Food is not even half of what it use to be, service is at best cacha cacha. What a shame. I use to love this place, remember when it was such a cozy cute place, before it grew, it was awsome.

We trekked out tonight despite the cold weather. Thoughts of Mogador's warm ambiance replete with fantastic aromas beckoned. We ordered the haloumi appetizer, a stalwart opener, and it was served sans lemon wedge. For shame. By the time we found our waiter and he returned with lemon, the cheese went cold. My girlfriend's duck confit looked and tasted like it might have died from natural causes. It was dry, and without substance. Long bones, old bird.... The fish tagine was good, not great, and the portion was nowhere in the vacinity of the various tagines I'd enjoyed over the years at Mogador. I left the restaurant angry at myself for not having complained. I've stopped in from time to time over 10 years, and I'm sorry to see the quality has slipped.

Ok, I may have spelled both of those delish items incorrectly but here is the thing if you are trying to eat whole, healthy foods at brunch, this is is the place to go. The Moroccan eggs at brunch give you greens, fiber, organic FR eggs, and if you order the mint iced tea it is the best, Jerry, the BEST!!!!!

We went here on a Wednesday, after an early movie- 3 of us. Excited to go to this restaurant, my sis loves it. It was busy, both inside and out. We were told that it would be a 20-30 minute wait, and we thought it would be worth it to hang around. We came back a few minutes early, so we didn't miss if our name were called. The guy taking the reservations told us it would be another 15 minutes- so we waited. Another 15- and now we were pissed. Others were seated before us. The guy tried saying that they were there first- not true. Now we were fired up. To make matters worse, the guy acted as if he was on the first day of the job. How annoying! To make an long agrevating story short: we waited an HOUR and then decided to just leave. Like, if it's going to be an hour wait, then tell us. We will never go there again.

Went in on a rainy, Friday night for a nice relaxing dinner and that's exactly what I got. The special Haloumi appetizer was great. and was complemented well by the grilled vegetable skewer on the plate. The only mediocre part of the meal was the hummus. It's just not up to par with others I've tastedit's a bit too chunky and lacks that bittersweet tahini taste. For my main course, I ordered a combination couscous dinner with the lamb and merguez. Simply delicious. The lamb was cooked perfectly, and the merguez was spiced very well. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and didn't rush despite there being a wait at the door. Very nice, laid back decor. Will be back soon.

I recently went to Mogador and had a subpar brunch experience. The service was very slow and the server was rude. I was told that there was a rule to how many ingredients my omlette could have, even if I offered to pay extra (I only wanted four items in there and apparently there's a three item rule). They could'nt even accomodate a simple request like 'egg whites'. Don't go here if you want an enjoyable and relaxed dining experience!

I love Cafe Mogador- it's a great place to hide from the rest of St. Marks Place. I am absolutely in love with their tomato and carrot ginger soups. Their sandwich platters are really good also. Yum.
