Aside from the beautiful and comfortably decorated interior, Tagine's kitchen is dynamic, baking its own semolina bread daily, and encasing its own lamb merguez. A variety of 'Tagines' are featured at the restaurant. There are several different cous cous selections on the menu, and mouthwatering house specialties include "bastilla", a Moroccan pheasant pie, and "moquadimat," a selection of appetizers, ordered a la carte or as a mixed platter. Included in the wine list, is a diverse selection of Moroccan varieties, which delightfully accompany the menu. Don't walk away from your table without sampling "Halahwyat" the most delightful, hand rolled traditional confections and pastries, graciously served with mint tea or Moroccan spiced coffee. We have been hosting, catering and entertaining palates and bodies for over 12 years. Our new location boasts a generous bar, hookah lounge, semi private room and, as always, one of the lasting live music venues in Manhattan.

Customer Testimonials

As a Moroccan, this restaurant offers the best authentic Moroccan cuisine around. Try Bastilla, chicken tagine with preserved lemons and olives, couscous with lamb and vegetables. For soup tried Harira and of course don't forget Moroccan bread with different sauces.

The best place to go to! Friendly staff, excellent food, and the entertainment is outstanding.

I live on Long Island and LOVE to take the train in to the city to eat. My husband and I stumbled upon this gem. Someone was standing outside and invited us in. I love to taste food from all over the world. We were not disappointed for one minute. The food was unique, delicious and the chef was so enthusiastic about his masterpieces and visited our table a few times. He was delighted to share what spices he used. I have been trying to implement more tumeric in my diet and he explained how to cook it. (note that the food has nice spices but not hot) I will be returning when I am back in the city. Highly recommend.

I've been going there for my birthday for years, and let me tell you it's my favorite place to go. The food the service the atmosphere is more than superb, I've been telling everyone about Tagine.I would go there everyday if I could. They always treat you like royalty and I. Can't even express my gratitude to them so if you want an excellent time good food awesome entertainment go to Tagine you will not be disappointed ❤

Delicious authentic Moroccan food. We almost didn't go because my husband was worried about bad review for service, but the waitresses were lovely and helpful. We ate bastilla, lamb and chicken tagines, humus, spicy carrots, lemon chicken and soup, all of it wonderful, as was the fresh Moroccan bread and humus. Definitely plan to go back.

Awesome service provided by all the staff. The food was outstanding! Everything was served quickly and the lamb in the dishes we tried was so tender that it just fell off the bone. They make their own hummus and bake all their breads daily. The pita bread and hummus was delicious!

A beautiful place with super yummy Moroccan food. I absolutely love their soup. This place supports the artists that bring the Middle East experience to life in the Big Apple. Bellydancers, singers, bands, etc Tagine has a special place in my heart since day one!

Last nite was our firsr time coming to Tagine and i really enjoyed it! Great food and the atmosphere was pleasant. Came with 7 friends celebrating a birthday and some had never tried Hooka and by the end of the night they were experts! I will definitely be coming back and will recommend to other friends!!

The food is a little pricey but this is to be expected given the location. The service was phenomenal and the owner made us feel like we were right back in Morocco again. His personal service made the meal a hundred times more enjoyable. Come here for a long and relaxing meal, not a quick bite in a rush.

Hamid is the best!!! The food was awesome!! The presentation was great as well with steaming clay pyramid shaped serving dishes. Nice dark atmosphere with pillows and cushions, very comfortable. They had great middle eastern / Bollywood style music. We were visiting from Florida where morrocan food is nonexistent. We had such a great time. I wish I could give 10 stars! Thanks so much Hamid for a great night!

An oasis of calm in the hectic desert of NYC. Great atmosphere; low lighting with plenty of cushions and interesting decor. Live music that makes the mood. Waitress recommended a good wine when our choice was out. Nice high quality hookah.
