Aziza San Francisco Reviews
Jan 14, 2006
Moroccan in SF's Richmond District
This restaurant has been on my list forever, and I FINALLY went there!
Ambience: very dim and
intimate. It's actually bigger than it looks (2 rooms you can't
see from the front room), but the seating arrangements aren't good for
large parties. They have belly dancing on the weekends, but we
went on a Friday. You definitely need reservations.
Service: good and
attentive. They give you rose water for your hands, which I've
never seen done before. Our waiter was very accommodating, yet at
the same time seemed a bit arrogant (maybe because we're young?).
Food: very good!
This place is known for exotic cocktails -- I had a "fez fizz," which
is basically a pomegranate mimosa, and Shinie had this lavender and
honey martini -- the most interesting drink I've ever had. It's
like drinking sweet flowers, which sounds gross, but was actually
really good. Appetizers -- we had mediterranean spreads and the
baked seafood triangles. Both were pretty good, but what stood
out was the couscous that came with the triangles. Sooo
good! Very flavorful.
Entrees -- we had the lamb shank (pretty good), the rabbit (pretty
good), and the basteeya (kind of like a chicken pot pie, but in
phyllo). The flavors are quite varied per dish, which you don't
see often in restaurants. The basteeya was kind of a
disappointment -- it was extremely pretty though... but I was expecting
I was very satisfied with my visit here. If I went back, I'd try
the couscous aziza, and I'd go on the weekend to see the bellydancing
