Nice Moroccan food in a cozy environment. I enjoyed the coup-cous and salad-I felt it was a little pricey but overall the meal was very good. Check out whether there is a wine special.

Authentic Moroccan cuisine, with attention to quality. It would have been fun to be there on a belly dancing night, but anyway it felt warm and cozy (if a bit dark). We had the chicken tourine, served piping hot in a traditional clay dish, and charmoula salmon. Both were tender and juicy, and nicely seasoned. And the mint tea is... More

The food was average - not particularly authentic Moroccan food, and the pricing was on the higher side, especially since it wasn't particularly good.

Dear cle s: We are sorry to hear your meal did not please you! We do wish to agree with you, as you are correct, it is not authentic Moroccan. As our menu indicates, we offer a Moroccan inspired selection. The spices and dishes we use incorporate ingredients from the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and North Africa. If you came... More

We ate at Fez before going to a movie around the corner, and the kitchen was very happy to rush our orders, even though it seemed that we were ordering everything on the menu! We really enjoyed the pizzets - two of us shared a chicken pizzet for appetizer, and then there were the wonderful roasted potatoes, and the chicken... More

Sitting right in the middle of the strip of Summer across from the Majestic Theater, Fez is sort of "hiding in plain sight". You almost miss it walking past, but once inside the atmosphere is great -- you might say Soho-y -- the food is terrific, and there's music multiple nights a week. The owners are very personable, and you... More

Food is excellent. All fresh cooked, the flavors are amazing. Down to the bone of the meat you can taste the marination and seasoning. Best wine/bar collection in all of Stamford in my opinion.

What a quirky little gem of a restaurant, tucked on little Summer Street. It has a fun atmosphere, the food is delicious and if you have a Gluten allergy, they are very accommodating. It turns into a night club after 10 pm so check their schedule.

My daughter just moved to Stamford and picked this place for her birthday celebration. We were there on a Sunday night. Enjoyed the appetizers of shrimp falafel and grape leaves. Shared the chicken tangine and the lamb shank. Food was good, but we didn't enjoy the evening because the music was so loud and we had to shout to converse.... More

We are so very pleased that you enjoyed your meal with us and must apologize for the volume of the music. We usually implement the use of something called a drum shield, which allows us to essentially ‘turn the volume down’ on the drums and in turn allows us to turn the volume down on the rest of the musicians....
