The bottom line, Marrakesh serves a delightful five course Moroccan cuisine. I visited Marrakesh several years ago the first time when it was located on NW Blvd. Since my first visit, I always had the desire to go back someday. I enjoyed the ambiance then, and I enjoyed the festive potential during my recent visit. Business was a little slow when I visited, so there was really no energy.
These days Marrakesh has since moved and it is located just outside the Gonzaga District at 1227 North Division.
Multi colored Moroccan poufs, mosaic tables and Moroccan upholstered benches serve as tables and chairs. A neutral toned tapestry hangs from wall to wall. Other than that, there is no other décor. Honestly, when I first walked through the door I felt as if I just walked into a Moraccan food hall. There weren't any intimate, private areas, for groups to dine, everything was just….in the open.
Marrakesh is not a place for singles, it is a couples or large group restaurant, and that is ok. Large groups can create the enjoyable festive atmosphere at Marrakesh.
The menu is traditional Moroccan, lamb, rice, seafood and poultry. You do not find the best Moroccan meals in restaurants, you find them in the homes, and Marrakesh does a good job making the diner feel at home.
I'll definitely recommend Marrakesh to my friends.
