A NYer for 18 years, Mogador used to be one of the gems of my favorite NYC neighborhood. But PLEASE do not be fooled by the atmosphere and quality of the food. The value is in the gutter. We paid 15.00 for a couscous dish that had a chicken thigh and a drumstick. When we complained, the manager told us their costs had recently gone up so they needed to raise their prices. As if this justified making a 600 percent profit, on our backs, on a piece of darkmeat on a bone. She also added "I can never finish a couscous myself," and offered us an appetizer. She should have comped us the dish. Trust me, gullible tourists and E. Village newbie hipsters, the neighborhood boasts plenty of alternatives for a delicious outdoor meal at a decent value. Don't be fooled by the faux "hipness" of Mogador and its location. It's fallen into the disneyhiplandia trap of a lot of EVillage haunts.

Although I have been in this country six years, I have yet to taste food that reminds me of one of my mothers cooking. (My father has 4 wives). The place is warm and the service is friendly. My friends loved the Turkish coffee ( a must have) and the banana bread pudding. If you only try one thing have the lamb tangine with the spicy green sauce.

Would definitely recommend. The lamb kebob was delicious and the hummus/babaganoush were terrific. Also reccomend the goat cheese salad. Atmosphere is also really cool.

Great Lamb Tagine. Good wines by the glass, I had a Spanish red which complimented the lamb perfectly. The assorted apps was lovely. Our server was friendly, the atmosphere was fun. My friend had the Ravioli, which I didn't expect to find on the menu. I tried it and I like it very much. The Lamb was better though. We also ordered the Chicken Bastilla. Lovely again. Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Cafe Mogador!

Excellent service at the bar while you wait for your table. It is usually very crowded on the weekends but worth the wait. My fav is Chicken tagine and warm choc cake.

Went with a group of 5 and had a great time. The food was better than expected, and I really didn't have any expectations. The only issues we had was the place was so busy, the waiter wasn't very attentive and we had to keep asking for more water. The place is noisy and hopping, which made for a fun place for a group. Very extensive wine list as well. The prices were really reasonable...I will go back again.

Fine food, friendly service, lively atmosphere. The subterranean ambiance made us feel like bohemians in the 1950's. Our teenage daughter and her friend loved the steak and pita bread. We enjoyed the grilled sardine appetizer, the couscous dish and chicken tagine with apricots and prunes. We can't wait to go back.
