    The food was delicious, and every act was better than the one before. Because of the size of the stage and how close you are to it, each person seemed larger than life. The sound system was perfect and the music perfectly paired with each act. Berber has finely hand crafted this experience into something fantastic, and I’m so very glad that I went!!

    Had to wait for our table for 45 min even though we arrived at the reservation time. Food was OK but not great, meat was heavy and not tender cooked. Atmosphere was a bit dark and noisy. Overall happy that we tried it but I don't think we will be going back again.

    Abundance of food. Unfortunately we are not accustomed to taste. Would have welcomed choice of smaller portions in exchange for one dish more to our liking for the $$$. Entertainment perfect. Staff extremely professional and friendly. Will definitely recommend to others.

    I prepaid for this dinner as a gift for my beta friends and her husband. They showed up and were charged $300+. I have been trying to call and get a hold of someone for 5 days now and have left messages, voicemails, with no one calling me back. What a terrible experience.

    This was for my husband’s birthday and we wanted a nice experience. The food was amazing and provided in large quantities. The wines were interesting and the service attentive, but not overbearing. I had hoped for the entertainment that was on website, but that didn’t happen. The only downside was that it was very loud and carrying on a conversation at the table was difficult.

    Second time here at Berber for the dinner show. Food is always outstanding although the dessert is underwhelming. The entertainers are great and so fun to watch. Service was a little slow with a lot of time between acts. Took about 3 1/2 hours for the 4-course show. Love Berber though and will be back again one day for another special occasion.

    The food was meh. The appetizers were all pretty good and flavorful, but the main dishes were dry, and over priced. The chicken, meat and fish were all overcooked and so dry. I wouldn’t come back.

    Made it clear we wanted to eat on time as we had a kid with us. Show started an hour late and they would not feed us fast even though we asked more than 5 people from the start. Had to leave after just the bread course even though we had to pay full price for a multi-course dinner. Among the worst service I have experienced. Also they close about 40 people in a windowless room with all doors closed during each performance. The A/C was minimal so airflow was minimal. How is this acceptable under SF health standards? They say everyone needs to be vaccinated but no one checked for vaccinations.

    The bill that came to us didn’t exclude the $35 per head charge that was made at the time of reservation and we had to send it back for correction. If this is a practice for all reservations then the customer should not have to educate the server about a $140 charge that needs to be reversed. The lamb tagine was really nice but unfortunately was missing salt.

    I’m leaving a bad review simply because I still have not received my deposit from this company after conversing with them several times. This charge was place on the 2nd of September and I still haven’t received it. They initially advertised that the amount of the deposit that you pay would be put towards your bill but that never happened. When I contacted them, they were very apologetic and explained that they were using a new system and there were some issues with it. I was understanding and did not mind waiting for it but then they started stating how it’s hard to refund the amount and asked if they could “PayPal” or “Venmo” me, very odd and I said no because it was odd to me, if someone were to be sitting in there restaurant at the moment they were overcharged, I can’t imagine that they would ask their customer to sign into their PayPal account so they could be refunded. My credit card company told me to tell them that it usually only takes 7 to 10 business days to get a refund back on your card, and that’s how I wanted them to process the refund. Essentially they got free money out of me from that deposit because it was never applied to my bill. I sent them a message explaining that my credit card company agreed that it was quite odd that a restaurant was trying to PayPal me back an amount that they took off of my credit card, I also explained that I would feel more comfortable that they refund it back to the card used and I still haven’t heard from them. That message was sent to them on September 12. Today is September 25 and I still have not received anything nor did I receive a response. I am currently disputing the charge, however I shouldn’t even have to jump through hoops to get back what belongs to me. Just beware, I hate to have to leave a review like this because the food was absolutely amazing but dealing with nonsense like this can make or break your experience as a consumer.

    I booked the Twilight show and 4 course fixed menu for my anniversary. I purchased the “love” experience, so I was greeted with a rose and we had champagne to start. We were seated right in the front row. The servers were great and the performers were actually incredible (4 acts: 3 acrobats, a song by the MC). It was a long show (reservation was at 8:30pm, we were seated in the private room by 9pm, and was finished by 11:30ish). Only other comment was that it was a bit loud because we were seated right next to the drummer. Also, a pitcher of cocktails (~4 drinks) came out to be $88 after the tip… otherwise, great food and drinks and entertainment!

    The quality of the show has really deteriorated from the last time I visited in April…. I was so impressed then that I wanted to bring my family. It was a waste of money… the performers were average , food was terrible, vegetarians pls don’t go with high expectations. Overall… money and time was wasted last evening.

    Very cool place with chic bar and vibe. I’m giving it a solid San Francisco 4+ because it’s fun and worth trying but Lord Stanley is across the street as a visible reminder of the high culinary bar here. The dishes were well prepared using California ingredients and sophisticated Moroccan flavors and techniques. I really enjoyed the duck confit bastilla, it had the cinnamon and flakiness of the traditional pigeon pie but without the pigeons and way better! My smoky bourbon drink sent me off a memory path to Marrakech for no good reason. Didn’t see a show but even in the restaurant it creates a buzz to have it happening, it feels like there should be belly dancing and a Lebanese pop band playing behind the closed door but I think that was only in my imagination.

    My boyfriend and I arrived at just the right time to squeeze into an open spot in the back room, where Berber offers a three course fixed menu plus three act show. We had an incredible time. The three performers were fantastic -- a contortionist, a belly dancer, and an acrobat. The service was attentive and informed. The food was not the best I'd ever eaten, but it was still very tasty. The lamb was cooked really well, and the gelato for the dessert course was delicious.

    The evening started off promising with the host and staff in wonderful wear. They served spiced warm olives then the evening took a nose dive. The show was amateurish at best and the food had no flavor and wasn’t good at all. They asked if we were celebrating during the reservation process and then proceeded to charge $20 for a sparkler and undrinkable shot of gasoline. I would not have said that we were celebrating if I was going to be charged and I find it rude to charge if you give me the impression that it is complimentary. I’m shocked that this place had good reviews. Perhaps the regular restaurant side of things is a better experience but this was a total dud. For acrobatics go to Fugazi. For delicious Morocco food: Aisha. This place was more than a disappointment.

    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!
