    We came for a special occasion and we were looking forward to the after dinner show later in the evening. There wasn’t an empty seat. After having our first course and some wine, we were surprised to hear the 7 gentlemen beating ethnic drums and a very beautiful costumed woman dancing throughout the restaurant. Five stars! The after dinner show and dancing, complete with exotic cocktails was over the top!

    We had a great time at Berber celebrating our wedding anniversary watching the Twilight Show in the back room with live performers. The food was exceptional and the ambience was a treat. It's pricey, however overall we felt it was worth it and definitely an experience to remember. We enjoyed chatting with Tony, the owner, who is a delightful, friendly person.

    We messaged the restaurant ahead of time to ensure that there was a show on the evening we were going and we were assured there would be a show. We also let them know we had one pescatarian. When we arrived, they said the show was cancelled a few days ago and they didn’t notify anyone who had a reservation. They did give us complimentary cocktails, which was nice, but we had specifically reached out confirming the show for a special evening, so it was pretty disappointing to not have any notice given. They didn’t even mention it at the door. I had to ask our waiter after we sat down. The couple next to us was celebrating a birthday and was similarly disappointed as they had also confirmed the show beforehand. Beyond this, the food varied a lot by dish. They had no note of our pescatarian request so we had to remind them. We did the 4 course $75 tasting menu and enjoyed 2.5 of the courses. Dips + soup appetizer was great! Next up, a salad and Brussels sprouts: the salad was just lettuce, grapefruit, and overripe avocado. Our fish entree was great, the kebabs were decent. The couscous side was amazing! Finally, dessert was a big letdown. A very very dry baklava that tasted like crushed peanuts. The presentation was nice and cocktails were great. Service was good/attentive; however, around 8:45 (our reservation was 7:30) they began to turn on the lights and clean up. I understand only 5 tables were left eating but the restaurant doesn’t close until 10. By 9 the lights were fully on and music turned down, so we felt pretty pressured to wrap up and head out. Overall a tough showing, I was really looking forward to my experience but unfortunately Berber missed the mark in quite a few ways.

    It was our first time there. It didn't start very well. On the reservation It said to be on time at 5:30 and they had a 5 minute grace period. We were there early, at 5:15. Had to leave the house an hour in advance, because was worried about traffic. Came at 5:15-the doors are locked! By 5:25 there was a huge line. The doors are locked! They opened the doors at 5:30...and started setting up the outside furniture! They finally let us in at 5:55!!! What kind of service is this?! I was appaled, because we had to use the restroom and they were letting anyone in. What was the point to write that check-in info about being on time when YOU were holding people outside for 25 minutes? The food was pretty good and the service was very nice. The performers shouldn't really perform. Sorry. Waste of money.

    I thought the Sahra show was fabulous and the 3-course meal (mixed greens salad, lamb tajine, and baklava with pistachio ice-cream) was delicious. The dancers were excellent and put on quite a show. My main complaint was that the food took a while to serve. It took a while before the waiter came over and took our drink orders and the dishes themselves took a long time to arrive. I understand they must've been very busy that night what with a full house of people...But I think the dishes could've come out faster during the show. If there is any way to speed that up, that would be great. But otherwise, fantastic show and lovely ambience to the restaurant. :)

    Food and show were both fine, but not good value for the money. If it were $60-70 per ticket, I’d say go, but not worth the actual price.

    Food was fantastic. We ordered the Mezhi Mix and all the kebabs were tender with great flavor. We opted to skip the show this time, but we encourage you to reserve a seat in advance! They perform every 730pm and it looks like a great show with prefix menu.

    Everything was phenomenal. My only hesitation in giving this place a perfect 10/10 is the handling of dietary restrictions. I made the res weeks in advance and someone in management told me that the dietary restrictions would be taken into consideration by the chef. When it came down to seating the server seemed surprised at the restrictions and when the food came out the gluten free stuff felt like it was an afterthought. My partner has an allergy nightshades as well and we're lucky the menu wasn't riddled with tomato or pepper but that could have been annoying had the prefix menu been more nightshade heavy. Outside of that it was magnificent, the food is beyond delicious, the atmosphere is simple yet sexy, the staff was friendly and professional and performers are incredible. We will be coming back for sure.

    I celebrated my birthday with a group of 8 here, and we loved our experience. We did the 4-course tasting menu, and had a few bottles of wine as well. The thing I loved the most about the dinner was the pacing. We spent a solid 3.5 hours at the restaurant and never felt rushed. They brought each course out at the perfect pace for our group, and allowed us to really enjoy and appreciate each course. We loved the atmosphere in the restaurant, and the food was top notch. I especially enjoyed the bread course, and the dessert. The bread was soft and fluffy, and served with a trio of dips. For dessert, we had an incredible baklava, and my group also surprised me with a medjool cake. Both were so good. Berber is one of the more underrated restaurants in the city in my mind. I couldn’t have been happier with my birthday experience.

    What an intimate yet titalating evening from the crafted drinks “that you could actually taste all 7 ingredients” to the decorations, the back cozy Moroccan speakeasy w-stage & entertainment, the creative host that got to know each celebration of the evening, true refined yet filling food, the SHOW, then being offered rose water to cleanse my hands at the exit!

    I felt like it was way more expensive than it needed to be. Paid 54 dollars just to get in gratuity tax etc. I have no idea where that money went to. The show was interrupted but the workers and the food was not spaced out well. I do not think it was worth all the money.

    If you come, you should come for the show. It's entertaining to eat and watch a live performance. You LL be in a dark room with loud noises where the doors will be closed during the performance with about 40-50 other people so keep that it mind.

    I go to Berber time to time when I want to get good comfort food with entertainment. Owner Borhen is super nice and accommodating. It’s all about hospitality! We walked in with regular reservation asked for table inside with entertainment he made it happen for us! Service was outstanding Carly was waiting our table she was extremely attentive gave us a great recommendation on the wine to pare with our 4-5 course menu. Lots of delicious food. Lamb just melted in the mouth. It was just 3 of us we were over satisfied with quality and amount of food. Entertainment was amazing, talented performers. We will be keep going back. Beautiful ambiance. Highly recommend!

    Unique experience of a dinner and a show. Three courses, three brief (5 min) shows. All appetizers were outstanding. My main was underwhelming, however I was already full by then. Desert was fine. Shows were spectacular but brief. Noise level could have been lower. Place is beautiful, well situated, restrooms are nice, service was impeccable. I recommend it for very special occasions. It is pricey. Also in the prix fixe, you don't get choices, unless you have dietary restrictions and call two days ahead to arrange.
