    Great ambience, good service. We set at the corner table and we’re able to see the whole place. Loved their music too- it was authentic but with modern twist. Food was good. Overall great place especially if you are looking for something different then steak house😀

    Overall our group enjoyed the evening. I hesitate leaving this review. Just before drinks arrived we noticed the leg on our table had separated from the table top. We had to hold the table to keep it from collapsing. Staff didn’t seem to understand what we were telling them. They thought it was simply wobbly. Eventually they swapped our table with another one in the restaurant. It was half the size and we were all squished around it. We pressed forward, but noticed that they sat another couple at the broken table. We warned them again that the table was going to collapse but they just ignored it. Eventually we just gave up trying to explain the issue. The meals started to come out quite quickly, but only half of them. There was roughly a 10 minute delay between the first three and the next two. Almost another 10 minutes until the last meal. Everyone was very apologetic, but when you add everything together, it was really a weird dining experience. We weren’t really expecting anything for the missteps, but it is always nice when restaurants do something to ensure you walk away with a good feeling. In this case, not even a final acknowledgement of situation. It’s too bad, their atmosphere and food are exceptional.

    We ordered 3 dishes recommended by the server - two appetizers and a main. There were only 3 of us and we are unfortunately not big eaters. After tasting the harissa prawns, tomato and basil salad and flambé full rack of lamb, I wish we had room to try more dishes. Everything was perfectly seasoned. I likely wouldn’t have ordered the tomato salad because it’s so basic if my friend hadn’t picked it, yet it tasted better than any other tomato salad I’ve ever had. The lamb was so much fun when it was set on fire and was super tender. I could have eaten all the prawns myself. This place is a very nice addition to Yaletown. I’ll definitely be back.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly, attentive and accommodating. The wait staff will flambé your food at the table, frequently refill your drinks, and make sure to ask all of your questions about the food. The restaurant itself was beautiful with a romantic atmosphere so I highly recommend it for a date. The few downsides is that the music can be a bit loud, the washroom was a little messy, and our food took a while to arrive — I’d say it was around a 20 minute wait between our appetizer and our entrée. Overall, I highly recommend this place and will be coming back!

    Great experience! The servers are knowledgeable in Moroccan food culture and customs. The dishes full of flavour and easily shareable family-style. The restaurant lighting is a bit dark with dim lighting, but nothing out of the ordinary for restaurants of similar ambiance. The music is a tad loud, but conversation could still be held without having to yell. Overall would go again!

    We wanted 'exotic' for a special anniversary and chose Moltaqa having never been there before. The cocktails looked like they fit and the menu also had a lot to recommend it. It was just what we hoped for. The staff were friendly and attentive, the drinks were delicious and the tagines; wonderful. We texted a few friends from the restaurant recommending we return as a group. The other folks dining were an interesting eclectic international group. Highly recommend.

    After the charge posted on my card , I realize there is an extra $ 103.44 charge on my account , which I made the reservation with ! I call the owner Mimo and he said , he would refund me after 10 days when he gets back from vacation . Today as he requested I reached out to him again and he said he’s on vacation and that he would send it to accounting . A refund does not take a month ! I should have just called my credit card in the first place and not trusted him. Left a very bitter taste about this place in my mouth .

    Lovely atmosphere, I enjoyed every minutes in that local. Finely an amazing Moroccan restaurant for dinning and experiencing magnificent Arabic culture in Vancouver. The only down side was the dessert; we ordered different type of baghlava what we actually love as a Middle East dessert and it was a disappointment. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended.

    The lamb shanks took quite a bit, would have been nice to be warned about the wait time beforehand. Veggie options could use some improvement, but otherwise all the meat lovers left super happy!! Duck breast was amazing! Ambience is super nice and as friends from western upbringing it was a unique experience for us all and well worth the premium price tag for food!

    Christmas course, $80 per person. $160 for 2. 5 courses for each person Service: 1. 15 mins waiting time with the reservation FOOD: Course 1: soup --a normal bean soup. I would rate it 6/10. Course 2: 4 shrimp for me, 2 sausages(?)for my friend with some veg. Too less but taste good tho. (They put it in one dish without any notification, which is confusing) 6.5/10 Course 3: Salad. normal salad. I personally don't like the salad. (Same, in one dish). Course 4: Rack of Lamb ($65) is the only one that I am satisfied with. I should have spent all of my budgets ordering this item. Course 5: Desserts. Too sweet for us. I really can't see how courses 1,2,3,5 worth $95. The price that I except for those courses is $30 to 40. SAD I would strongly recommend ordering the items individually. (All in the rack of lamb:D) DON'T CHOOSE A COURSE!!!!!

    Moltaqa Moroccan Restaurant - YaletownResponded on January 11, 2023Thank you for your feedback this was the price we announced prior to booking and have chosen to have for set menu during Christmas Day, where all our staff have chosen to work and served our customers. 1 normal bean soup is traditional VEGAN -very popular, green pea soup , which is greatly appreciated on cold winter day ..we thank you for your feedback and dining with us

    Our dinner was on Christmas Day, and this was one of the few restaurants available. Service was excellent- staff was responsive, friendly, and cheerful. Food was mixed rack of lamb was delicious, but the lamb shank with apricots had too much coriander or cloves. It has a cozy atmosphere.

    The ambiance is exotic/romantic. The food is unreal. All of the servers are fabulous (they were crazy busy but still went out of their way to answer questions about what music they were playing and knowledge about everything they serve was on point). Definitely would go again. Went on Christmas (our flights were cancelled on our layover) but this would definitely be a date night spot to go again. We had green pea vegan soup (amazing), semolina bread, carrot cucumber tomato salad (very good), chicken merguez (amazing), harissa prawns (very good), duck tagine with figs and pear (outstanding!), pickled lemon lamb shank tagine (pretty good - we originally were leaning towards the one with apricot but server said we would have two sweet tagine and the lemon is more savoury so an excellent and appreciated recommendation but the duck one was so good I would have loved a sweet lamb one too), baklava, flaming cherry crepes (wow), bottle of Hungarian white wine (a yummy random choice that was a good one), Moroccan kir royale (wasn’t as cardamom forward as I was expecting so we swapped and my boyfriend’s sangria was actually way more my style - very sweet and cinnamony), Moroccan sangria, mint tea (an experience) and Moroccan coffee.

    Booked for Christmas dinner and unfortunately the one item we had primarily booked for and were hoping to order was not on the menu despite confirming with them over phone beforehand. The desserts were also not all dairy-free as promised (for my partner with an allergy). Apart from those two small disappointments, the food was excellent, service was friendly, and the restaurant had a nice ambience.

    Our server was great so that was nice. However, the overall energy from the manager/owner was strong. I overheard him get a little sharp at his staff, walking around and micromanaging to the extreme. I understand that as a manager/owner you want your restaurant to run smoothly but it was overly noticeable to the point that his presence was so uncomfortable. You could sense he got annoyed, frustrated and upset very quickly with his staff. The rest of the staff was great though!

    The food was outstanding! Everything we ordered was fresh, flavourful and delicious. We’ve been to Morocco and this is the closest you will get to a unique dining experience. The decor and ambience is very authentic to Morocco and transports you into another world. The music is very entertaining and there was even a belly dancer showing off her incredible skills while we enjoyed our dinner. As a lover of middle eastern music and dance, this was an amazing addition to the experience. I would certainly recommend Moltaqa to friends and family. Thank you for an awesome evening!
