A great Las Vegas tradition.
My family and I have been going to the Marrakech for years, we are natives of Las Vegas, and support the long time business owners in our town. This is a great place for a birthday party, or a romantic dinner for two. The dancers are very skilled and artistic, the food is excellent, but it's a lot of food, so come hungry!!
The owner is always very gracious and friendly, and buys my family/friends a round of after dinner drinks, as a thank you for being patrons. The waiters are all fun and outgoing, very family oriented. I gie them an A+
Tantalizing to all senses.
My first time was a Saturday night for my boyfriend's birthday. As you walk into the small-medium dining room, you are welcomed by warm colors and low lights. The shrimp scampi appetizer is served with bread and this app' is full of flavor. Contrary to what "Along came Polly" leads us to believe, Moroccan food is not necessarily spicy. The entire dinner was delicious. I loved that you eat with your hands before the main course.
That night, a really large party was there, and we received as much attentive service as they did. The entire staff was really nice (and they weren't fakin' it). The Belly dancers were very beautiful and being a belly dancer, myself, I appreciated the talent the women possessed. I was really surprised to have enjoyed such a culture-filled night in a classy environment in Las Vegas of all places. I visit Las Vegas a few times a year, exploring off-strip restaurants as much as possible, and I will definitely be visiting this place every time I'm in Vegas.
Best place to go for a special event. Though it doens't look like much from the outside, the Marrakech is a literal oasis. Very true to it's North African flavor, the Marrakech provides a six course meal complete with dessert and entertainment. Make sure you make reservations and let them know if you eat kosher (one course is shrimp, but they may have a substitute).

At first glance, it's easy to dismiss this Moroccan favorite; the boxy, unassuming building is tucked into a commercial center. But inside, tapestries drape from the ceiling and colorful wall coverings make for a richly romantic setting. Plush red couches and decorative pillows sit low to the floor encircling hand-crafted wooden tables. The prix fixe six-course dinner may include tongue-tingling lentil soup, pickled vegetables and hummus, tender lamb kabobs and couscous.
Go hungry!!. Wonderful Moroccan atmosphere, impeccable service, delicious tasty food, enjoyable belly dancing, very moderately priced for the amount and variety of food that you get.... Definitely a must try if you like North African cuisine and... if you're hungry!!
A Perfect Night!. I had a small wedding, w/ only 15 guests. We went to Marrakech & absolutely loved it! I had some reservations about the menu, but the food was excellant. They even provided vegetarian alternatives for my guests as well. I was treated like a queen. The belly dancing was a blast (my husband & I did the "dollar dance", belly dancing style). It was like all of the workers & guests eating there were all celebrating the wedding. I wouldn't change a thing!!! Great food, service, fun, & memories.
ONE WORD: INCREDIBLE. 100% authentic! I threw my parents an anniversary party at this Moroccan Oasis, and it was spectacular! My mom is Moroccan, and she insisted that this eatery embodies and conveys the hospitality of the Moroccan people! The atmosphere,food, belly dancing, and service were great! The owner even came out and gave us complimentary champagne for the anniversary. We will surely return...
NotAuthentic-OnlyMoroccanInLasVegas-Unfortunately. The first course was an Italian style shimp scampi dish. A soup and salad followed that was more traditionally Moroccan. The delicious kabobs were beef, not lamb as was expected. The entree of cornish hen with couscous was dry and bland, no sauce. The only nod to the exotic was the raisins and prunes in the couscous. The biggest disappointment? The forks brought with the entree. Surely these should have only been brought out if requested. Dessert was very good, but was a replacement of the traditional b'stilla of filo & spiced chicken offered in most Moroccan restaurants. These changes probably were made to be more palatable to the average American, but are a shame. The mint tea tasted overwhelmingly of chlorine and should have been made with filtered water. I would have liked a choice of entree. Where are the preserved lemons, tagines, b'stilla of traditional Moroccan cuisine?
A Gem in the lights of Las Vegas - off the strip!.
Three of us went to celebrate a birthday, and a great time was had by all. The bellydancers spun their charm around the room every 20 minutes or so, allowing us to enjoy our delicious meal in a relaxing and enchanted atmosphere. The 6 course menu suprised us all, each item was quite tasty and the portions were enough for five people.
Each of us in the party thought that the $32 per person was well worth it. In Las Vegas that is a inexpensive way to enjoy an evening (drinks extra!)
We will definitely come back! Perfect for a night out with friends, or an entertaining date.
Poor Treatment - bad reservations policy.
I used to think this place was good, but now I don't. I've been here multiple times and even sent other groups, but never again.
I called 6 weeks in advance to make a reservation. At that time, it was fine.
But, 4 weeks later, less than 2 weeks before we were to go, they called me back and told me that they had to bump me to another time because there was a larger party that had booked the entire place. Therefore, I had to change my 7:30 reservation for a group of 8 to 5:30. Everyone knows how hard it is to find a restaurant for a large group. Plus, in Vegas, who eats at 5:30? But, just because they had gotten another reservation from a larger party, they bumped us! What kind of policy is that? Reservations go to the highest bidder? Ridiculous!
