I don't understand what the fuss is about. The décor is nice and the wait-staff efficient. We didn't feel like we were being rushed, but we should have sent the food back. I ordered the steak medium-rare and found it inedible--full of gristle and cooked well done. The accompanying mashed potatoes were lumpy and the asparagus past its prime. Of my three companions, only one liked their entrees. I was the only one who had an inedible meal and couldn't believe I paid for this dinner. I will never recommend or return to this restaurant. Though we all agreed that the flavors were interesting and nice, it was as if the real chef was off for the night and a novice was trying to prepare his recipes. On top of all this, the beer list sucked and two of my companions had to rock-paper-scissors for the last import. My advice is to go to Tizi Melloul if you want belly dancing, ambience, and truly good Middle Eastern fare.
