This 3.5 Bauer rated and three year running 1 Michelin Starred Restaurant is a follow up to Mourad Lahlou's Michelin starred Aziza. Mourad is a modern interpretation of a cuisine deeply rooted in the past. Our food pays homage to those roots, showcasing the rich and vibrant flavors of Morocco in new ways that harmonize with the fresh, local, artisanal ingredients, and the spirit of innovation of Northern California. Mourad is located in the historic Pacific Bell building in San Francisco’s South of Market and Financial Districts. The contemporary design seamlessly blends the Art Deco building with steel accents for a setting that is both modern and inviting.

Overall, I found this restaurant to be quite disappointing, considering it has a Michelin star. The restaurant itself is beautiful and I enjoyed the service and ambiance, but I found that the dishes didn’t go well together and the spices used didn’t sit well with my palate. They focus too much on creating unique dishes that are artistic, rather than overall good taste. Wouldn’t return.

We were the first to an early lunch, but gradually during the lunch hour the restaurant almost filled with diners anticipating quality.

The bread and dip appetizer was wonderful, the chicken wings were truly excellent, and the basteya has a very nice combination of sweet, savory, bitterness and texture. Very deserving of good reviews and ratings.

Had a lovely mid week dinner with my parents visiting from out of town. Had some apps, shared chicken dinner with sides, and split 3 desserts, not to mention some beautiful wine. Everyone enjoyed the ambiance, the plating, service, and if course the unique flavors. Can’t wait to come back and do the tasting menu with my husband.

My favorite special occasion restaurant in SF. I do wonder if they paired down their tasting menu. Last time I had it I was stuffed to the gills, this time I left a bit hungry. Did they remove a course or two?

This is a restaurant everyone should try at least once. Very interesting menu with a dish for everyone. We had the Short ribs. For me the spices overpowered the actual dish. A little too much of this and that. My spouse would disagree and the spice the better. They test is would I come back? Yes I would.

Upstairs dining has a wonderful vibe conducive to conversation. Service was impeccable & the food amazing. Love the Basteeyah & the sides that come with the large plate. Tried the lamb this time & think I prefer the ribs. Scallops are also delicious. Perfect meal to share with friends!

Fantastic food! A little loud, but basically fine for ordinary conversation. Service was very good. Not cheap, so you pay for what you get.

I only wish that the “ancestor restaurant,” Aziza, was still around in the Richmond!

This is now one of my top 5 restaurants in SF. The food was fantastic. I highly recommend ordering from the family style section and getting some small plates too. The slow cooked short ribs were amazing. Everything we ordered was top notch. Service was just as wonderful. The decor is very nice and comfortable. Great bartenders and fun, unique cocktails.

We were really disappointed. First they shuffled us upstairs which was quiet and less buzzy. We should have followed the lead of others who asked to be reseated downstairs. For the numerous people working there our waiter seemed to have too many tables. The temperature on a lot of the food was off, either cold or lukewarm, like it had been sitting and waiting for delivery. Some food was better than others, but generally it was all too fussy. The proteins themselves were good but the sauces and such were too much and added nothing discernible. Maybe it was an off night but we thought it was overpriced and disappointing.
