Moroccan
Escape to a hidden oasis in the heart of San Francisco. Recognized in MICHELIN Guide's Bib Gourmand 2021 and 2022, our modern Moroccan menu offers an aromatic dining experience to fully immerse the senses and simulate a night out in the exotic Mediterranean. With noteworthy dishes rooted in traditional North African culture, we combine age-old cooking techniques and imported spices with a modern California flair.

Inspired by the warm hospitality of the aboriginal Berbers — also known as the noble, free people — each meal is sensory and satisfying, from the first to the last course. Ideal for parties, private events, date nights, and gatherings for all types of celebrations, we combine our love of showmanship and community for all walks of life to enjoy modern Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine.

    Berber was a phenomenal experience. I often stay away from tasting menus as I worry that I am overpaying for small meals but that was not the case at Berber. Not only was the food filling and delicious, but the performers made the Sunset Show all the more worth it. The vibe is also really great. Everyone in the restaurant was really energetic and participating in the show which made it all the more fun. The food was the perfect balance of being filled with flavour while not being overbearing.

    What an exciting spot! Food was delicious. Drinks were fun. Unfortunately, we were unable to experience the entertainment in the back room, because it was sold out. Nonetheless, we still had a great time. Their service was exceptional. The hostess was very welcoming and we even interacted with the owner. Our waitress, Aya, was extremely kind, and very helpful! We are definitely looking forward to coming back, and hopefully will be able to enjoy the entire experience by catching the show in the back room.

    Came to SF for the night with my boyfriend and we were excited to come here for dinner and an experience! There was a line outside which was annoying but when we got seated in the back room, the vibe was amazing. It was very sexy and the lighting and secluded, intimate feel made it a vibe. The food all taste the same. Literally each course form beginning to end had the same flavors. We enjoyed the salad (which we shared) the best. The food came out slowly and there was a lot of down time in between performances. The drummer, who was the opening act, was my favorite and I felt set the tone for the show. I expected more of a traditional Moroccan experience and unfortunately we felt the shows were cheesy. As I mentioned, a lot of down time and moments of no performances and no food. It felt drawn out and we were just ready to leave.

    The food was amazing. Really vibrant, energetic experience. Didn’t see the show in the back room but will definitely come back to in the future. It can get a little loud at times but not so much a detractor. More so for you to be aware if you are hard of hearing. Overall great spot!

    We ended up doing one of the dinner shows. The service was impeccable and the show was impressive for the most part. But it is quite pricey for the food that is served, especially as all drinks are extra. The food was good but since it’s a prefixed menu it’s difficult when you’re not a fan of what’s on the menu.

    Excellent food and food service. The lamb tagine was excellent. The wine service was weird - we asked for wine recommendations and the server walked away without really recommending anything. Other than that one small thing - the overall experience was fantastic - and I will come back.

    The experience was really cool I really loved the ambience and being able to see a talent show. I thought the food was good, but that the portions were small for two people when I first purchased the ticket I thought we each get our own three-course meal, not a shared meal. Possibly have a bigger portion size next time if it is shared. Overall it was good, and would do again.

    Terrific food, unlike almost any other Middle Eastern spot in SF. Excellent and unique wine selection from Morocco, India, and others. Impeccable service and a fun atmosphere to boot! The mid dinner belly dancer preview was a nice surprise. Will definitely go again and this is likely to become our family’s regular meeting spot.

    Place feels disorganized and everyone was confuses on where to go and what is going on from the moment we arrived. Even though we had reservations we had to wait outside in a line. And even though we were the first to arrive, we got pushed to the end of sitting. Food was fine. Not great. The show was very short and more of a gimmick than an actual show. Waiting staff was confused and over worked. Constantly forgetting orders and even taking 30 minutes to get us water. This place is just trying to do too much and doesnt know what it wants to be. Does not excel in anything.

    It was promising but it was very slow. Lots of time between meals and between shows. It would have felt better if the whole thing lasted 2hr instead of more than 3. The food was OK but not amazing. The show was fun but not that unique.

    ok...amazing!! We thought we were going to have a lovely Moroccan dinner. Well we did have a fantastic dinner with outrageously delicious food and drinks, but we decided to stay for the show and it was just superior! Starting with the best belly dancer I've ever seen and then on to several cirque du soleil acts, all accompanied by an amazing percussionist who drummed for 2 hours until we were all in a happy trance of joy. Oh my gosh, the MC was lovely and mentioned something sweet about every table and really celebrated each of us and the wonderful experience we had. What can I say? We'll be back with friends. Worth every penny spent.
