I wish they had the traditional tajen with more vegetables like zucchini pumpkin the real Moroccan tajin dish
Amazing and fast service. Super nice guy took care of us last night not sure if he is the owner or not. The food was in huge portions, fresh and so tasty. The place itself is so cozy and cute. Easy to find a parking spot at night. Open til late even on weekdays. Many Vegan and Vegetarian options. They serve hookah as well. More...
I love this restaurant. I usually get it delivered. I went there for the first time the other night and I loved it. Service was excellent. You can tell the staff really enjoys their job. As far as the food. Wow More...
This is the most incredible restaurant ever!!! Their Mediterranean dishes are breathtaking with superb taste and quality. They are the best in L.A. and I am fully addicted to their food. Try their chicken shwarma and their beef borek and you will not be able to stay away from this restaurant ever again! They also have an amazing delivery service through grubhub. I congratulate them for bringing truly authentic Mediterranean food to L.A. More...
Great place great food!
Overall pretty good. Moroccan Harissa soup very good - tangy and unique.Shish Towook chicken platter (w/ rice, hummus, salad) very good.Lamb shank platter very good.Service was nice.Place is a bit too dark, old, and weathered looking. Needs a bit of sprucing up. More...
Its toss up between Marsa and Rosemary for this neighborhood. The plus is that Marsa is open later, don't have a minimum order amount and deliver for free.
Good hookah and great appetizers
Getting a delivery from this place at 1am on a Saturday night was like a miracle! The food was fresh and delicious. Looking forward to actually going in for a meal.

Prepare your tastebuds! Food with a kick! Delicious and spicy, great friendly staff, great service
Amazing, amazing food! Worth the price, great service as well. You can easily tell the food is made fresh and not reheated. Totally recommend to anyone in the area. There's a convenient parking garage within walking distance as well! More...
I just ordered from here for the first time today and was blown away. The quality of the food was incredible. The flavors are amazing. Every single thing I ordered had so much flavor, even the salad and rice. Definitely check this place out if you're in the area. More...
Such a good Mediterranean cuisine lunch spot. It's a hookah bar, which I didn't realize but at lunch there's very few people smoking hookah. The dishes make this place. I love it! Their salads and shawarmas are flavorful and so tasty. Colorful, full bright salads filled with lots of finely chopped cucumber. I love that!The entrance is not beneath the sign, so it's a little odd to find the door. The host wears many hats so sometimes he's there when you walk in, sometimes not. The interior is casual but comfortable. Tables are a good size. Their lunch specials are a bargain. I also love their hot tea. It's hard to go wrong here! More...
Fantastic. I smoked hookah for the 1st time and it was a nice touch to the date I was on with my boyfriend. The salad was served before the entree which was nice because often when the salad comes with the entree the meal has a rushed sense. I had the Mouraccan chicken and he had the Lamb Shank both were full of flavor and generous portions. I am excited to go back and try another dish and flavor of hookah. Great fun date spot or place to go with friends very hip fun vibe. More...
I ordered a vegetarian plate for lunch while I was at work. They were closed when I ordered, but it was ready shortly after they opened and delivered timely. Everything was very tasty and fulfilled my craving. The mint tea was refreshing too! I highly recommend this place. I honestly picked them because of the free delivery, but they will be a regular lunch place from now on! More...
Lovely food!I would go back there again and again!
Tasty meal for Father's Day. We ordered a ton of food and the portions were huge. We started off with the mezze platter and I got the Chicken Shawarma which was really good. Would definitely come back and the service was also great. Thanks guys! More...
The food from this place is absolutely incredibly good! This is the most tasty food I have had outside of the middle east! Their shwarmas are insanely good and so is their falafel. I have become addicted to their food :) More...
Amazing authentic Middle East experience. My husband said he felt like he was in Palestine again. The food was good. I ordered the vegetarian plate and really like the hummus and baba ghanooj. My husband orders the chicken kebab and it was also good. They also have hookah there for after the meal. My husband smoked hookah and it was an overall pleasant experience. I will be returning. More...
Food was delicious! The service was exceptional, our waiter made sure we were taken care of and would stop by every now and then to see if we need anything else without us having to ask. My wife and I will be coming back for the hookah and live music on the weekend. More...
delicious food , service with a smile . Friendly place, warm atmosphere. Will be back. I recommend it
Really great take out food. Reasonably priced and generous portions. Personal favorite is the Mediterranean platter.
Amazing chicken shawarma one of the best I've ever had at a restaurant! This really one of the best Mediterranean restaurants I have ever been to and another plus I'm not a hookah smoker but I did try it here and so clean and fresh tasting this place is really the best!
It was my first time trying Mediterranean food. Absolutely delicious. I loved the lentil soup. Wow. Amazing. Would come back.
It's past midnight The food is outstanding and service is impeccable. Come here if you have the munchies and fancy a hookah while you're at it :)
We got the Duo Combo, Cold Mezze, and a side of felafel. We'll be getting it (or something similar!) again. Tasty, light/clean, quick delivery... we'll be back for sure!
Sooo many good things come out of this kitchen! And I'm not talking about just the food. Muhammed, of Marsa Lounge, is on top guy! Going above and beyond his service to make sure all is well with your order. I've only done catering through Marsa and have never been let down. Food was always delivered promptly, served fresh and always hot! Not to mention the baklava he threw in as a compliment to the large order. Come here for the delicious cuisine but also for the top notch hospitality. More...
All right, this is now my go to spot when I'm craving some shawarma and amazing hummus. First of all, they have parking in the back which is necessary for this location and makes pick up and dine in easy!Foods: The plates were huge and very filling! All plates came with salad and rice/couscous.Moroccan chicken plate: The chicken was tender and moist. This is my first time trying this dish anywhere but I would come back specifically for this dish. Couscous was very tasty!Chicken Shawarma plate: Tons of meat with plenty of rice to accompany it. Hummus trio: we tried the roasted red pepper, avocado, and garlic. My favorites were the red power and the garlic- the garlic was strong and I love that! While the red pepper had a good spice kick. The avocado was good but not really my favorite.Service: I was greeted and given my menus to browse. Gentleman was super helpful in guiding me around the menu! Food came out within 15 minutes and got home to eat this delicious meal!10/10 would come again and plan on soon! More...
Very clean place, friendly staff. Nice atmosphere, I will go back.
Let me preface that I come from Dearborn Michigan, a place that has hands down the best Lebanese cuisine in America! So I knew the challenge to find something comparable here would be tough. Alas, Marsa Lounge and walking distance from where I live here in West LA! Being that I have now earned Duke status, it was time to give them some love.As I sit here dining in for the first time in the almost two years I've been coming, I can't help but wonder if I did the right thing. For a couple of reasons. One of them being recently they converted it into a hookah lounge as well, so if the smoke will bother you I suggest getting it to go.I'll refrain on comments from the service considering there was only one waitress and she was limping.Let's talk food!I always get the vegetarian treat which comes with two sides of hummus, grape leaves, falafel, tabouleh, and pita bread. Tonight because I was hangry I tried the fattoush for my first time. Moving forward I will only get take out as it took WAY longer than expected and the smoke wasn't pleasant. Because the food (in fact best it's ever tasted)is so good and owners are so nice I'm still giving a More...
My BF & I went to this place yesterday randomly but turned to be a great plAce for us , because we were very satisfied with food quality and customer service. The guys were so polite, respectful, fast and clean ! Hookah was great as well ! I really chose this place to go often ! Well done guys ! More...

Excellent, delicious food and great ambient! Prices are fine. I totally recomend it
My go-to Marsa Mediterranean Cuisine never disappoints. Get the Lamb shawarma, add fries, tahiti and spicy sauce. The portions are huge, and the meat is juicy, you get the most bang for your buck here. Winner.
Tourists on a tight budget (but with an insider tip from my resident epicurean daughter, a germaphobe whose instincts I trust) we drove past this tiny hole-in-the-wall place at first. So glad we found parking and went in!! Amazing middle-eastern food, kabobs, falafel, lamb on a spit-- a favorite for locals, this is super reasonably-priced, deLicious food!! More...
We were really impressed with the food here! Very flavorful and bright - and we ordered delivery! We went for it and got the lamb shank - so good. The sides that came with it (salad, garlic, hummus and couscous really complimented the dish. Awesome tabouleh too. Definitely want to eat at the location in the near future - it looks so cute! More...
Absolutely outstanding food at good prices, with a modern Tunisia/Moroccan club vibe - 20s-30s crowd with hip hop playlist and hookah. A cool spot to eat, drink and hang out. More...
Excellent location for delicious mediterranean food. Good place to hang and eat some good food. Service is typically great.
Good place for mediterranean food. Great spot for an appetite of any size. Will surely make a return trip. Prices are reasonable I would say.
We ordered from Marsa Lounge on a busy Friday night through Uber Eats. The delivery guy comes, we take the food inside, sit down at the table and get ready to eat...but the order is COMPLETELY wrong. Whatever, it's late and we're hungry so we eat the meal anyway. It's delicious, but I do let Uber Eats know that we got the wrong order. A little over an hour later I hear the doorbell ring...it's not the Uber Eats guy but someone from the restaurant apologizing in person for us getting the wrong delivery, and personally presenting us with the correct order. That kind of care and customer service alone deserves 5 Stars...but the food was amazing as well! I will 100% be dining at Marsa Lounge again!!! More...
Ordered take out. Was late but there was some sort of mixup with my phone number and the driver was lost. The food was the usual Mediterranean style cuisine. Similar in many ways to good quality fare of this type. I would order again for delivery. More...
Very good food and service.
I recently catered a meal from Palmyra for 10 people, and people are still talking about how delicious the kebabs, prawns, falafel, rice and hummus were. The service was great, and I'd highly recommend the place. Having halal food is an added bonus! More...
From 11 am to 4pm special lunch with free drink and desser ..Healthy and tasty morrocan & Mediterranean plate only for 11.99 Otherwise happy hours hookah for 12$Try this place is amazing with Arabic environment!!! More...
Oops I reviewed the wrong place. But Marsa is close by and they look cool too.

10 out of 105 Stars The chicken is superb! Wow!I never thought that food could taste this good but i guess i was wrong. Thank you so much for the food. Those cooks deserve a raise in pay forsure. More...

Good food but a little pricey
Really Really Really Really Really Really Good good food. I had the falafel wrap. Nomnom
Great portion size and food. Also is BYOB which is amazing. Only issue is they only play Drake
One of the best Mediterranean restaurant I ever been to and the service is top noche thanks Zied for the amazing service
Boutheina A Elouaer
Omg ! The food yesterday was beyond amazing ! thank you Marsa Lounge for your hospitality and the amazing dinner we had ! I will definitely come back �
5 Stars all around! Received a delivery for our whole Office staff and the food was amazing! Their staff is super friendly and they go above and beyond to make the customer happy. I'll definitely be ordering from Marsa Lounge more often! The staff at Barrington Plaza highly recommends them! More...
Chicken Schwarma is amazing!
Amazing chicken and beef. Grilled chicken is tender like butter, beef tastes like authentic Nicaraguan or Argentine churrasco. Cannot recommend this place enough. More...
They just opened so I'll give them a break for my pickup order being late. The food is amazing and good portions for the price. The kebabs and chicken tajin were both juicy and packed with flavor. Will definitely be back! More...
Great food! Loved the chicken tangine!
homeless IN LA
One of the best restaurants in the area owner is very generous decoration is amazing beautifful music and great atmospher
Best chicken I have ever had
Had a pleasant experience. The service was great the food was even greater . Nice location close to Brentwood and Westwood . The restaurant has nice atmosphere got that classic look and classic set up .. for sure I will visit this place again ... More...
Best shish taouk I have ever had very well recommended
Great food, friendly staff though it seemed a little understaffed for lunch rush.
Nassar is awesome! The hookah is great and they're well known for their food as it is also a catering company. Sometimes their chicken is a little too salty. 5 stars because it's the closest hookah spot near Santa Monica that won't mf you in price! More...
Just got a quick to go order and the manager was amazing! I just moved here and he threw in a free dessert for my first visit. The hummus and chicken were SO fresh and absolutely delicious. They took excellent care of me and I will be back. Check em out! More...
Super casual new place... Great home made Morocan food...
This is BY FAR our favorite restaurant in L.A.!!! Phenomenal, authentic cuisine, amazing service, adorable decor, and awesome atmosphere!! The service is impeccable, everyone that works here is always very friendly, they take their time, dont rush you at all, and remember their clientele. We highly recommend this place! Pleeeease try the avocado hummus!! More...
I'm updating my review to 4 stars. Marsa doesn't deliver to us anymore (be careful what you wish for!), but at least they aren't offering a service to people that they can't reasonably deliver on. Much better to know I have to pick up food myself rather than waiting 2 hours+ for it to come to me. Food is still top notch! Highly recommend the cous cous salad yum :) More...
This place is Fantastic, we were out late and wanted something other than fast food or pizza. One of my Friends said lets go to Marsa Lounge, I had never heard of it . They were open, they had music playing and the customers were enjoying sports and Hookah. The place is very clean and the food smells fantastic the moment you open the door. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and customers when we came it, menus and drinks were there immediately. My friends ordered hookah while we waited for our food. the food came quickly, the service was fast, warm and super friendly. my food was Fantastic, we started with fresh Humus and Pita , when my spicy chicken showed up it looked great, after one bite I was hooked on this place. I have been back twice since that evening and I plan on going frequently.try it out you won't regret it More...
Cool place, yummy food and the hookah they have all flavors and the service is fast and great
Cool casual spot with really good food! And clean hookah! Hospitality is great...give them time to come together.. Still very new!
Sooooo GOOD. I got the chicken schwarma plate delivered to the office I work at and it was amazing. The flavor was so on point. I can only imagine how amazing their other items are. Best Mediterranean food I've had in LA easy. Thanks. More...
Went during week for lunch. Surprised this place wasn't packed. The food is excellent! The dips (hummus, babaganoush) are super fresh and the pita has a slight saltiness (yum). For entrees we tried the salmon kebabs and shrimp tajine along with salad, rice, and cous cous. All of it was so filling and good. We took home leftovers for dinner. We didn't even have room for the free dessert with check-in... so I saved it for later. This is also a hookah bar and I guess a night club. The ambiance is clean, adorned exotic decor, and they play music to match. It's definitely worth a trip if only even for the succulent roasted eggplant babaganoush. They set the bar on that one! More...
I live in area and I always walk around the area with my dog, and I noticed this place been busy so I decide to check out with my friends. We walked in and faced very beautiful decor and set up. They have parking lot in back. My only confusion is about sign and menu of Layali LA, looks like there is another establishment inside another. Layali LA is cafe and Hookah and I don't like smell of any kind of smoke and I got worried at beginning but about one and thirty minutes we were here did not smell anything. Another great thing is there comfortable chairs. We start with Moroccan Harira; delicious soup made of tomato, lentil, rice noodles and chickpeas with authentic Moroccan spices.And for entry we had Moroccan chicken couscous is steamed over a saffron based chicken sauce, served with a variety of delicious veggies only issue was cold couscous. And Shrimp Tajine which comes with shrimp, onion, and garlic cloves simmered in a coriander sauce served with side of rice and Marsa salad includes iceberg lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, red cabbage served with lemon olive oil dressing and it's my favorite.I really want give them 5 stars but cold couscous and slow service is reason I'm giving them 4. More...
My new favorite place. I ordered takeout and they delivered quickly. It wasn't what I ordered but no complaints! They read my mind it was a sampler of three types of meat, rice, salad, hummus. I was planning on saving half for lunch tomorrow but I can't stop eating - that delicious. The portions are huge so that isn't the issue it's heavenly! Everything!!! More...
This place was absolutely amazing! This service was second to none! Nadir our waiter was so kind, so attentive so wonderful! What an experience!The price of the food was also great for what you get! You have left overs that are delicious!!!The food delicious and spiced to perfection!I urge you to try the fattoush, Hummus, the soup, the chicken, the Arabic bread is warm & fresh!The hookah is also priced fairly & smelled great but I didn't try it! They had great music!This is my go to place from now on! I want this place to succeed & it's employees to succeed because of the service, food & kindness they exhibited! More...
Oh my goodness!!! This place was absolutely delicious!!! Wonderful food and service!!! I highly recommend trying this restaurant�
I had contacted Mohamed about an event we were holding in Malibu for 40 people. We wanted it to be a little nicer, and Mohamed was EXTREMELY helpful and accommodating. He offered to provide beautiful chafing dishes for all the food he provided, at no additional cost! The food delivery arrived right on time and the driver set everything up right away without me having to take my attention away from the event. The food was a huge hit with multiple guests coming up to me and asking the name of the caterer. Mohamed truly went above and beyond and I would use his services again and highly recommend Marsa Lounge for anyone who needs quality and reliable catering. More...
I don't usually leave a 5 star review for take out, but this was GOOD. Really good quality, and a nice sized portion. I ordered the lunch chicken schwarma, Lots of rice and meat. 2 pitas instead of 1 would be better, but for the price it's still good. Would order again, future review forthcoming. Fast delivery as well! More...
Yum!! Tried the falafel plate and chicken shawarma - both were delicious! The garlic sauce was amazing and so was the hummus. I ordered it in and definitely will again. More...
I love this place... i order Vegitarian sandwich. You know tge pita bread lol. Stuff with everything fresh with that Mediterranean feel. Yall know im picky. This place is beautiful, the music is beautiful, and not to mention the vibe. Oh my God!!!! I love it.... More...
Great food. They do not quite have the staff they need yet but that's okay because the food is excellent. Get the 3 hummus sampler and get baba G as one of the 3, they will let you do it. Excellent. Tagine dishes are also excellent. Sea bass, yes, that's excellent too. Baklava is homemade and flaky and not too sweet. You won't be disappointed. Huge portions. More...
We went to Marsa Lounge for the first time last night. It was completely empty so we had our doubts, but the food was really good! It seems like they're still trying to figure everything out with the service, but they made up for it with free hummus and dessert. Wissem was our waiter and he was very nice and helpful! We each had a Mykonos Salad with Chicken Shwarma and it was absolutely delicious. We'll definitely try ordering in and will be back! More...
This place is a terrific find! Everything was tasty -- shawarma, sautéed chicken, tomato onion shrimp, tangy homemade soup. It's a winner! So few great Mediterranean places in this area! And the service is very friendly. More...
Great Mediterranean food. You could bring your own drinks here. We've ordered kebabs, the roasted hummus and some salads. I strongly recommend their roasted garlic hummus and chicken kebab
Visited this place on a Wednesday evening with a couple friends. The place was empty so service was really fast. It's a relatively new restaurant that opened just a few months ago. The staff is very nice and helpful. I ordered the lamb shank which was really good! I removed one star for the prices; I think it's a bit overpriced though. $15-25. More...
I had been mentioning to my fiancee there weren't any quality Greek places near our apartment. I found Marsa online yesterday and we decided to try it out for pick up. (Note: the restaurant has available parking in the back). This is a new restaurant and the owner was working out some kinks in the order process (which was minimal), BUT the food was delicious. The Mykonos salad is tops for a greek salad we have tried, and the shawarma was juicy and the meat fresh. We will definitely be coming back and looking forward to trying more food! More...
The food is amazing! The portions are very generous. And the service was excellent! We had the chicken tawook and chicken shawarma. Highly recommend it!!
We live in the neighborhood and decided to check it out for dinner. We had chicken shawarma, beef shawarma and lamb shank - all of it was great. The portion sizes are huge - we ended up talking almost half of each meal home for leftovers. Our waiter was attentive and the food came out quickly. It is BYOB - but luckily there is a Ralphs within a few blocks, so we got a bottle of wine to go with dinner (no extra fee). PLUS, right now there is a cash back groupon deal where you get 20% back on your credit card for whatever you spent. More...
We've driven by this place countless times and I decided I wanted to give it a shot. In a neighborhood that has a lot of Italian options we were pleased to find a quality Mediterranean restaurant in relatively close proximity to us.My girlfriend ordered the Morrocan Chicken Couscous while I ordered the Vegetarian Treat and Vegetable Soup. The soup was healthy and and hearty. We shared the soup but needed to add salt to it. I'm sure there wasn't much salt because it was meant to be healthy. The flavor was lacking in the soup so we were worried about our entrees. WE WERE WRONG. Both of our entrees were flavorful with great portions. My girl loved how tender and moist her chicken was and said that her couscous was perfect. She loved her side salad and her meal as a whole. My Vegetarian Treat was simply delicious and I enjoyed the dolma, falafel, tabouleh and all three flavors of hummus. Basically I loved the whole meal and while I was eating it I was thinking about how I couldn't wait to order from this place on GrubHub. The pita bread was great and I think we (mainly me) went over board eating it. Overall this was a quality experience with great healthy food and value. My only reason for giving this place 4 stars is that although the hostess/waitress provided good service she was very quiet. Almost shy. If you've ever watched the Seinfeld episode about the 'low-talker' that's what it was like. She was very nice but it was hard to hear her in a moderate sounding restaurant. We will be back and look forward to seeing her and the restaurant succeed. I am sure I will be updating this place to 5 stars sooner than later. More...
Marsa Lounge is a lovely addition to the West LA neighboorhood. In a city that has set the bar high in Mediterranean faire, Marsa stands out as some of the best I've had recently. The atmosphere is very clean, modern and chic and I like the serenity of the ambient music and the fountain.I have dined in and ordered out--both have been good experiences considering their state of soft opening. The portions are huge and the menu selection is extensive compared to other Mediterranean restaurants. I LOVE the hummus appetizer topped with shwarma. I have yet to see this any any other restaurant. I've tried most of the kebabs, the koobideh and the beef and chicken shwarma. I can say that my favorite menu items are the shwarmas. Flavorful, charred on the outside, tender on the inside--it's perfection!I love that all platters come with rice, salad, grilled veggies and garlic sauce. I hate places that make you pick one or the other. Portion sizes are generous and the food is colorful, fresh and beautifully plated.Because of they are a new restaurant, there still seem to be kinks that need to be worked out on the service end, but I'm sure it will only get better with time. More...
ordered again last night... chicken shwarma plate, baba ganouch, feta and i really wanted to try the machouia dip. other than the delivery time, getting hummus instead or the tunisian dip, and a diet coke instead of a real coke, it was great! only wish the pita was better, it doesn't last for the next day. i'll be ordering again soon! More...
I had the garlic humas and it was fantastic!! Just had the one appetizer, but was treated like I was ordering the whole menu. Abundant with olive tapenade and fresh warm pita as well. Will definitely be back!!!! My server Layla was very sweet More...
Yes, a new place in my neck of the woods! My boyfriend and I are always searching for new places by us, especially ones that accommodate Gluten Free! Amine and Gaston helped us and were so welcoming and accommodating. Best part, this place is BYOB with no corkage fee! They give you tons of food for a great price. Will definitely come back again! More...
Food was delicious! The only thing I did not like were the dolmas. Tastes like canned dolmas. But everything else was amazing. Loved the baba ghanoush, hummus, Arabic Quinoa salad, everything! I will be back!!! More...
We drive by this place all the time and decided to stop in tonight for dinner. The ambiance could use some work. The lights were very bright at 8 pm. They have candle holders on the walls so maybe they do a better job of lighting on weekend nights. We ordered the hummus with chicken. It was good although the spices on the chicken tasted more Asian than Mediterranean. It was good nonetheless.I ordered the Kofta plate and was impressed with it. The meat was well-seasoned but a little dry. It included rice, salad, grilled peppers and best of all- GARLIC SAUCE. My boyfriend ordered the cous cous salad and did not like the dressing. We took it home and now have 1.5 lbs of cous cous if anyone is interested?I liked my meal and would come back. Wish they had beer/wine and better lighting! More...
Entree was really good as the kindness of waiter but the dessert was terrible the worst baklava that i ever ate.Just you can eat everything but not dessert
Really great food and great service. Had two servers and both were super attentive and friendly. Highly recommend the avocado hummus. Would def go back.
Marsa Lounge has catered a handful of office lunches for me and all of my clients absolutely love the food. Amin has been a pleasure to work with and is flexible with my requests. I highly recommend Marsa Lounge for your catering needs! More...
Tonight was the third time that I have ordered delivery from Marsa Lounge. The food, particularly the Lamb Tagine, Chicken Tagine, and Grape Leaves were absolutely on-point! Very tasty! While there was a slight hiccup the first time I had ordered from this restaurant using Eat24, the owner (Amin) remembered me and personally delivered my food the second time I ordered. He apologized profusely and went above and beyond by providing us with a variety of appetizers (hummus, mechulia dip - all were delicious) on the house. It felt great to know that they treat their customers with great respect and value their business tremendously. On a separate note, they do accept delivery orders directly from their website - pretty seamless through ChowNow. More...
Food is really great! Loved the salads and hummus! Even requested vegetables only with the hummus (gluten free). No alcohol so bring your own or there is a cvs across the street :) happy hungry!
Food is awesome and the waitress is the sweetest. She is so soft spoken and kind. She recommended the lamb last time we were in and it was delicious and her recommendation of the kebob combo this time was just as good. Highly recommended.
I recommend the Mykonos salad- best Greek salad I've ever had!! Love that it is BYOB with no corkage fee. Will definitely be coming back!
The Mykonos salad was great - full of fresh veggies and feta. We also got the hummus trio and grape leaves to share - it was all very good!
Came out to the west side for a business dinner and the food was good. The beef shawarma was good.
Wow was I impressed with the decor and food!! Amin the owner was very pleasant , felt like he was a big teddy bear!!! I will definitely be back!!!
We went to Morocco several years ago and ever since our return we have been searching for delicious, authentic chicken tajine. We finally found it at Marsa Lounge. It lived up to our memory. We met the owner, Muhammad, and he is super friendly and hospitable. He patiently answered all my questions about the menu. We also learned that his brother is the cook and his mother also helps, and shares her family secret recipe. We tried hummus, mechouia, tabbouleh and chicken. Everything tasted delicious and the Tajine just brought me back to Marrakech... We highly recommend Marsa lounge for the delicious food and wonderful service and friendliness of the owner. More...
Very delicious and good delivery ... we miss Layla's, but our first visit to Marsa Lounge was excellent (also).
Simplicity and good food at its best. The place inside is clean and minimalistic. The food is great. The hummus and puta chips are a great start. You should also order the feta and tomato, you can't go wrong. I had the mixed kebab plate, and I don't like Lamb but this is the best lamb I ever had. It was so well marinated. The chicken was amazing too. The side dishes were great, the beef tenderloin was amazing! This is a great place with amazing food and will be in my go-to mediterranean when I'm in the area. More...
Hands down the best Mediterranean cuisine I've had in Los Angeles! Mo is super hospitable as well! I will be a regular for sure!
Arrived on a quiet Monday around 6pm.The restaurant is one big room with all tables and chairs. The color scheme was teal and white. We ordered baba ganoush, and 2 different hummuses to start: The garlic and the avocado. The baba ganoush was our favorite of the three. It was more flavorful and had a refreshing lemon taste that complimented the eggplant. We would highly recommend trying this dish.We also ordered two vegtable soups. The soups were pureed. They were served with a side of lemon and we put that in our soup. This would be Great to order for vegetarian customers.For our main course I had the salmon and my husband ordered the steak shwarma dish. Both plates came with rice, vegtables, and a salad, and some amazing garlic sauce.The salmon was cooked prefect to my request and the meat my husband ordered was very flavorful.Five stars For good service and great food. More...
Food was very delicious. Especially loved the hummus choices. Everything very tasty and hot. They went out of their way to make sure you had a good experience. Prices were reasonable as well.
Great experience! We had a pre-planned large group, over 40, which they accommodated with ease. Then 20+ more showed up! The staff was wonderful, they accommodated our entire group and created a wonderful experience for us. The food was delicious and they didn't miss a beat!!I can highly recommend Marsa and will be back again! More...
Nice ambience, love the fountain! They give an olive tapenade when you come in which is delicious. The cheese borek was very good.
This is a great restaurant. Falafel was crispy without being too oily. Dolmas and pita were on point with three types of hummus. Highly recommended!
It's been a wonderful experience! Food has been spectacular and the host made sure we were all fulfilled in every way possible!
Great spot for large group-- we had about fifty people here, felt super comfortable and connected with everyone (which we thought would be a challenge with the size of the group) because of the layout of the restaurant. Amine was great-- gave us a good deal. Unlimited hummus (three types) and grape leaves, and the entrees were delicious. There's a BYOB option too-- highly recommend for a corporate or large family event! More...
Wow. So there's 60 of us for a reservation for 40. We get the place to ourselves, and we have 20+ more than expected.And no problem. We're loud, we're demanding, and the staff is serving with a smile. The food is GOOOOD too, like "I cleaned my plate" good.I love the design too. I just decorated my house in Seattle similar to this--Moroccan/North African. Light, airy, inviting. I'm looking forward to bringing my bebs here for a romantic date. Definitely worth trying! More...
Amine could not have been more hospitable.We had a party for 40 people and 65 showed up.The staff was amazing and made an amazing evening happen.The food was awesome I had the Chicken,perfect Moroccan flavor sI loved it i will for sure be back!! More...
This place has delicious food. I had the Fattouch and Chicken Tajin and they were both great. It's BYOB for now and they provide bottle openers. Cute music in the background. Good for groups! They are a little short staffed at the moment but it was fine, we enjoyed our time! More...
The hummus trio and tatziki were so fresh and delicious, the portions were generous and I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Definitely recommend the chicken shawarma, the spices were perfectly balanced. More...
Just had dinner at this new Mediterranean restaurant and was extremely pleased. Everything was fresh and flavorful. We had various types of Hummus, Tatziki, and the Chicken Swarma. All declicious! Definitely will be coming back. More...
I really enjoyed the food I will certainly come back 10/10 got the mechouia dip it was drops of heaven Amine was very friendly and all his recommendation were great definitely worth it
I had a great experience and meal at Marsa Lounge! My boyfriend and I ordered red pepper hummus and the chicken kebabs and everything was delicious. The service and food were both great. I will definitely be back More...
Really delicious Mediterranean food and they don't skimp on the portions! Owner was super friendly and courteous. We came on a slow Monday night and he brought out pita bread with three different types of hummus/sauces for us to try which was an awesome bonus. Out of the things we had my favorite was definitely the chicken tajine. Will definitely be coming back. More...
Amin, the owner, was very welcoming. My daughter often has a hard time sitting through dinner, so he showed her the turtles in their fountain. The food was very good and the portions generous. We'll definitely be back!! More...
New delicious food on the west side. The atmosphere is modern, the music is good, and the service is friendly (with a bubbling fountain and two turtles AND adorable little kids that seem right at home). Amin was awesome, and helped us make great choices about what to order. My favorite dish was definitely the lamb tagine. Slow cooked for 7 hours, and flavorful as anything. Warm pita, cous-cous, and lots of great dips and spreads make this an enjoyable and interesting find. We will be back. *there is abundant free parking out back -- a great added bonus for an LA spot. More...
Great service from the start. We didn't have reservations and it was visibly packed. Amine sat us down within minutes and sent complimentary pita and hummus. We tried the vegetable platter and the chicken couscous. Both very filling and tasty. The portions are quite big and for the price, it's a steal. Definitely happy we tried this place, all because of great reviews on yelp! More...
5 stars for the food. They're still working into regular season shape during the soft opening, but friendly family run places get a grace period from me. Amine more than made up for any rough spots in the service, as did the food, and the BYOB with no corkage is also a plus. More...
Great food! Amin really went above and beyond to take care of all our needs and experience. Definitely a repeat!

So good! We had an amazing time catching up with our LA friends. Food was very nice and the host the same!!!
Great food and amazing service! Soft opening was a success!! Can't wait to come again!
Amin treated us like family. A gem in Westwood. Tzasiki was excellent. Even better than my wife's and she even said so. We will definitely return every time we are in Los Angeles.
The service was very good. Our tangines were delicious and the humus might just be the best I've had.
Found this neighborhood gem by our house. Great service and solid food. Order the vegetarian trio!
Brought my mom here for her birthday and we had an incredible experience. The owner went out of his way for her and our meals were both perfect tasting and presented. Marsa has a homemade feel and flavor. The girls loved the music and interior design. More...
Just had a fabulous dinner at the hot and new Marsa Lounge. We had the salmon kabob plate, the Arabian salad, and the Harari soup. Amine is a great host, and he even hooked us up with his favorite appetizer! I would definitely return in the future to sample more items off their menu. They just opened so their menu is not yet compete, but i am looking forward to their official grand opening in October! More...
Excellent atmosphere, hummus is outstanding! Highly recommend - and plus, it's BYOB! Amine is very friendly and takes great care of his customers. Great spot to take friends that are in town visiting, or an easy spot for a date More...
Great food, thanks Armine- you were so funny! I loved the decorations! the shrimp and chicken tajine was PERFECT!!
The food was great here! Service is attentive as well. We started with a delicious soup and had the chicken tajine and vegetarian plate as entrees. Highly recommend coming for some good Mediterranean food! More...
We loved the Mediterranean vibe. Service was great and everyone was smiling. Food was amazing! We had the lamb shank tajine and the chicken couscous and both tasted the same as I had in tangier. Amine, the owner was the coolest guy! Will be back More...
My friend and I went to the restaurant during its soft opening and it was a very nice experience. They were out of a few things which is understandable but the pita was fresh and the appetizers were great! Thank you Amin for the free hummus! I'll definitely keep this restaurant in mind for next time. More...
Absolutely fantastic. In from the Midwest. Wanted persian food. Blown away!!!! Flavorful, value, and phenomenal service. We got the chicken Sharma, the beef kabobs and garlic hummus. Seriously could not get enough. Amine was a wonderful host and was extremely friendly. If you live in Santa Monica, you are blessed to have such an awesome jewel in your neighborhood! More...
Great owner, excellent food and cheap! Nice atmosphere, great lounge area and music! Very chill. You will leave full!
Amazing food! Glad to have a new Mediterranean restaurant in the neighborhood. Owner was great came and greeted us to explain it was a soft opening, when I told him of a olive allergy he kindly sent out a replacement dip for the tapenade that was amazing. Can't wait to try the rest of the menu. More...
The food was great. The lamb shank is a must try. The portions are generous and pita was nice and hot. Hummus was delicious, not too oily, and well seasoned. Very nice staff, and very curteous. I would recommend to anyone interested in some good Mediterranean food. More...

Tasty lamb tagine. Still working out kinks with staffing and liquor license in the works, but promising place with good prices.
We are so glad that we came here for my dad's 50th birthday. The food was amazing! The dishes all shed a different light on the many cultures of the Mediterranean.I look forward to the success of this establishment. More...
The food is so authentically delicious!!! Really beautiful ambiance, and Amine has incredible work ethic. Definitely recommended!!
This place was absolutely amazing! The lamb shank Tagine was unbelievably good! We received excellent service from the Owner and his staff. Could not recommend highly enough! And this was just the soft opening...can't wait to take more friends here for the hard opening!!! Delish!!! More...
Visited on Aug 30, 2017 during soft opening. So it could be a bit different after they grand open.But the food was very authentic and we ate a lot. Had lot of appetizer such as vegetable hums, then I had lamp shank kajin.The lamb was well cooked. I liked that they had a lot of salad to come with. It made me feel a bit healthy.I would come back here again. It's a good medditereneam joint that i can recommend in West LA.Since they are soft opening, the operation was not that smooth. But it's ok. More...
A wonderful family feel and authentic, great tasting food. I definitely would return.
Fantastic food! Try the Machouia , it's amazing and kebab mix.A nice little treasure for Wilshire Blvd.
Very good Chicken shawarma with garlic sauce!! Close to UCLA Chicken Shish Tawook was good too
Great service from Munia and Delicious!!! We found the place on yelp and so glad we stopped by! Especially since I am from Huntington Beach so depended on yelp for lunch! Highly recommend it!
We live nearby and noticed a new place. We walked over and it was excellent! Great service. The hummus is incredible. Nice owner as well. It's still the soft opening but very worth the visit! More...
Came in for their soft opening. Great babaganoush and falafel. Still has some kinks as its a new restaurant sure it will be worked out by their opening on the 3rd September!
Came in for lunch during their soft opening. Food was fresh and delicious, and service was great! My chicken shawarma plate was so flavorful. Unbeknownst to me, my coworkers mentioned it was my birthday. Because of the soft opening, there was no dessert in stock--staff presented me with a baseball cap filled with protein bars purchased from the nutrition shop next door! Such a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Definitely planning to visit again, maybe next time for dinner. More...
Great looking, open spaced restaurant that gives a cafe feel even for a soft opening. Amine and the staff were very friendly and helpful, but more importantly, the food was really good.We have a plethora of dishes from chicken, lamb, hummus, salad and feta and cheese plate. The portions were fair and the lamb especially was full of flavor and so tender!Overall, a great dining experience. If you're looking for Mediterranean/Greek food on the west side, be sure to check this place out after their grand opening. I recommend! More...
Delicious food. Came with my wife and we shared some plates. Grape leaves, hummus, Soup and beef Kabob. It was delicious!
It's a brand new spot but it feels like it's been in the neighborhood for a while. Very good food, tastes like high quality dining, but for reasonable prices. The ambiance is favorable as well with all of the decorations around the place. Absolutely would recommend bringing the whole family. Oh, and the service is excellent! Get the avocado hummus and Shish Kebab, you won't be disappointed. More...
Marsa Lounge was great! We had a few delicious hummus appetizers to start (the hummus with meat and garlic hummus, I believe). Amine was gracious enough to provide us with a plate of hummus (and later some delicious desert) on the house, which we really appreciated. Both he and I our setter were very polite and attentive. I had the chicken donor for my entree, which was very tasty, especially the garlic sauce. Overall, a great experience! More...
Great food! Came in here with a small group of friends and we had a sampling of their starters -Amine threw 2 in complimentary - and they were all delicious. Our main dishes tasted great too and were a good size, with portions of rice and salad. The restaurant itself has a nice ambiance and Amine was a gracious host. We all agreed we would definitely return! More...
Best Mediterranean food I've had in the US and easily comparable to a lot of the food I would eat back home (Dubai). Amine was also a very kind and friendly host. The hummus with meat was the highlight of my night and I will definitely be coming back here in the near future. I highly recommend Marsa Lounge. More...
& here am I seating at my place watching tv and the door bell rings and those guys come over to offer me a dinner as a samplers and to hear my feedback about their food and the quality. I was so happily surprised that I could say their food and their approach is the best I have ever had since ever this is great good luck you deserve the best if you keep this style of business. Congrats More...
Fantastic food and the owner threw in a flavored hummus after ordering the plain. Both were amazing! Plentiful portions and meat was cooked perfectly! Great stop!
Kofta was great. Baklava was amazing. Spicy hummus was very tasty!!! Atmosphere and music were pleasant.
Fantastic food and very friendly service. The chicken doner and baklava in particular were delicious.Everything was clean and the flamenco style music made it fun to talk or just listen to the music.
Awesome place! Amazing food! Great job Amine! It's been a long time that I've had meat marinated this well. The flavors are as authentic as you can get.
Really great customer service! Amine took great care of me thank you!! Also the food is just amazing particularly the chicken to get some protein! ;)
Amine is brother of mine, I never thought that this time his business will reach this level of efficiency and greatness seriously very well recommended food is drops of heaven.
Love the ambience here. Lots of whites and open atmosphere give off a Greek feel. The food was tasty and well presented. We tried three different hummus dishes - meat, avocado and red pepper - all of which were flavorful and well priced. Will definitely be back. More...
Delicious food!!! Beef doner, humus trio, chicken doner and kofta kebab and babaghanouj ... delicious. also came with a complementary olive and olive oil sauce with lots bread. Yummy! Best shawarma we've ever had very moist! More...
Everything was delicious ! The chicken and beef doner was one of the best I've had. The garlic spread was to die for. Leaving very full and happy ! Will definitely be back soon. Amine was very friendly and welcoming ! More...
Wonderful Mediterranean place walking distance from us to try out! Pita bread and olive dip to start for all and my husband and I don't even like olives, at all...and we nearly finished it all! We ordered the hummus as a starter, my husband got the shish kabob, and I got the chicken couscous. All were delicious and we couldn't finish it because the portions were big! We could have split the chicken with couscous and been stuffed on it it's own. Mechouia appetizer was delicious too! The owner was very accommodating and ensured we were satisfied including brining extra broth out for my chicken without even having to ask. He's very particular with the way his food comes out which is not seen very often so it's refreshing to see an owner truly invest and care into the restaurant. More...
Marsa lounge is one of my favorite spot in west LA. The service is very quick. I strongly recommend this place. I met the manager amine, he was very generous and helpful, he gave us a free humus plate. I will definitely come back
Second time coming here for dinner during their soft opening, and I feel like it's already "our place". I get Mediterranean for lunch quite often, and this blows away the other restaurants in the area. In addition to the food being incredible, the owner is passionate, welcoming, and fun to talk to. We love him!Highly recommend!! More...
It's Amine's soft opening and he's as accommodating as he is entertaining. We were waited on hand and foot and the food was amazing. BEST Mediterranean food in the area by far. You can tell the cuisine has a kind of special attention devoted to it. The taste and seasoning is superb. Make sure you try his special garlic sauce! More...
I have been in too many locations where Amine the manager is running it, I really appreciate his excellent service. This place is seriously outstanding, beautiful decoration, great food and very fast service. I had the mechouia dip and the shish taouk and I can't wait to try the rest of the menu. Seriously a highly recommended restaurant. More...
Came here with coworkers for lunch. The food was great. I ordered the chicken doner. It had a lot of flavors. Also tried the roasted pepper hummus and tatziki. Both were very good with pita bread. Service was good. However, They didn't have some of the stuff on the menu yet. More...
The restaurant is beautiful and traditional looking. There is an airy and open feeling because they leave the doors open in the front and the back. You'll wait a little bit before the food is ready, because they are still in soft opening.The servers are very sweet!I liked their Moroccan soup, babaghanouj, and beef kabab. Their prices are very reasonable and their portions are large. More...
Great new neighborhood restaurant! We ordered take out and were greeted very warmly by the manager. The interior is bright and inviting. We ordered the shish taouk and beer doner. Both were delicious! The meal came with pita bread and their yummy house salad. Excited to try the rest of the items on their menu! More...
New very nice modern place with Mediterranean and Arabic food very reasonably priced and great appetizers , great decor modern and clean. The prices are not even $$ but one and a half $ compared to today's standards. No alcohol but feel free to bring your own. That is great of course but it does not cater to romantic couples or girls night out that they prefer to order their booze , their wine, ( and pay well for it) instead of having to carry it with them. To me it is a blessing to carry my own. The owner is great fellow all I can suggest is to dress a little more stylishly and presentably so he can attract classier people. Then he gets my 5th star..... More...
The food was AMAZING! My husband and I went for dinner, the staff was very welcoming and friendly, the decor was really cute, and the food was incredible! We will definitely be coming back! More...
What a cute refuge from the hustle and bustle in the city. Wonderful authentic Morrocan cuisine in a beautiful setting. You will never believe you are in the middle of Brentwood. Service was great too. Will def be back. More...
We went today during their soft opening. Loved the ambiance... Beef Borek, Chicken Tagine and Baklava were delicious. Will definitely be back here.
So glad we walked the 2 blocks.Food was very good...loved the hummus trio AND the olive tapenade. Adore the new decor and there are 2 TURTLES.We will let our coworkers know and will be back for the evening for wine. More...
Food here is delicious. We came during the soft opening so not all the food options on the menu were available but that is to be expected. Owner is very friendly and will be a repeat for sure. More...
Simply amazing!!! I'm so satisfied with everything from the atmosphere to the service and especially the food! The chicken is superb and the hummus trio is a great choice to start! Will work this into our date night routine. More...
This is a great restaurant, I ordered the chicken kabob, shish kabob and a vegetarian platter that had several different items. I thought the garlic sauce was amazing, best garlic sauce I have had so far and combined with the shish kabob meat instantly sold me. Definitely coming back again More...
Excellent service and great food. Lamb shanks on point. Amine is the best. Location is good.Service can be improved but customer service reached beyond expectation. My dog loves the bone from the lamb shank. More...
I'm happy to find a new place has opened in the area. It's nestled between McDonald's and KFC. Parking was no problem at 7pm on a Monday. Metered spots right in front (keep an eye on the signs).Service was friendly and attentive. The food was really good! We were in the mood to try something new. We tried a variety of dishes. The tapenade was a great start. I especially enjoyed the hummus appetizer and my lamb shank with couscous. The atmosphere is nice with background music that didn't drown out conversation. Plenty of space between tables so we don't feel cramped.If I could make one suggestion, it would be to work on the order that the dishes were brought to the table. I was already digging into my lamb and couscous when my salad was brought out, but my sister was still waiting for her chicken. Overall, a great dining experience, and I'll be sure to come back after their grand opening next week. Recommended. More...
Oh so yummy!!! The chicken couscous was fabulous, and the shawerma dish delish!My new favorite place! Can't wait to try more dishes
Marsa is located on that slowly improving stretch of Wilshire Blvd in Brentwood, two doors down from the McDonalds. The interior is light and bright with a fountain right by the front door which does a nice job of drowning out the street noise off Wilshire. Went by Friday night to check out the soft opening. Upon arrival it was clear there was a private party going on but the owner said I was welcome to join as long as I ate what the party was eating. I was seated immediately. There were three appetizers: 1) A roasted vegetable dip that was good. 2) Baba ganoush which is never my favorite dip. This was smoky and tasty for what it was. And a hummus plate which I thought was very tasty.Main dish was shish kebab. The meat was tender and delicious. By far the best thing I had that night.There was also a half-chicken being served too but at that point I was ready to pop so I waved the white flag.The service was very attentive and everyone there, from the owner on down, were very friendly and efficient.There's lots of intriguing dishes on the menu and I'll definitely be back to try out some of the tagines at least. More...
Marsa was incredible, yes the food was amazing! Even more so the staff, and owner made the experience perfect. It was ideal for a dinner for a date, or just to relax with friends for a traditional style meal. Hospitality was great, and service was flawless. Will be recommending to my friends and will be back with my girlfriend soon! More...
Amazing ambiance with high quality food to match! Had perhaps the best hummus of my life here.
Just finished a FANTASTIC meal at Marsa. Everything is so flavorful and fresh. I'd highly recommend the chicken kebab and the babaganoush. The atmosphere is very pleasant, clean, and chic. The owner and staff are friendly and welcoming, and the ambience is top notch. Also, there are two turtles swimming in the fountain inside! How fun is that?!All in all, a terrific dining experience. I'm thrilled to have such a wonderful restaurant so close to my house. I can't wait to come back when their full menu is available! More...
Great customer service and really good food!! Check it out guys! The baba ghanoush, the hummus and the bread are just awesome!
Amazing food along side amazing customer service! Family friendly environment! Amazing food display that leaves you mouth watering
Customer service is impeccable. The owner is so friendly and really made the experience that much better. The beef kabab was so juicy... definitely recommend this place. It's family friendly, super clean and great food! More...
After the little marketing stunt Marsa Lounge made, I decided to go check them out for a late lunch. First, what a cool spot to enjoy your lunch or dinner, the colors, the harmony, I really loved the eclectic touch reminiscing of Mediterranean craftsmanship. When they brought food to my house to announce their arrival in the neighborhood, I got some Shish Kebab with rice and a méchouia dip. They left a To-Go menu brochures and I had my eyes set of the kebab combination.When I got there, the manager greeted me all smiles and friendliness, and he got introduced me their menu selection with new alternative Mediterranean choices. What a tajine dish! Juicy and delicious and flavorful like nothing I've tasted in another Mediterranean place. I'm glad this spot is two blocks away from my apartment. A new addition that's walking distance from the Brentwood Plaza and completely different from what you would expect from a Mediterranean place. Amazing food, and such great service, I will be a regular. More...
Its been a long time since I've seen amine working on Wilshire. we just find out he opened the new spot. decoration is amazing and the place looks classy and amazing. unfortunately we already had dinner but we will definitely go back to try the food. We already have had such great experiences in the past with amines work, best customer service EVER! Very well recommended. More...
Lovely new cafe on a soft open brings much to like. The Moroccan Harira soup is an authentic soup of tomatoes, lentils and chickpeas and is delicious. The appetizer dips are good - like the hummus, the babaghanouj and my favorite, mechouia dip - a great blend of peppers, tomatoes and garlic and spices. Pita is great and works well here, but you can also just spoon the dip up. The Shish Taouk is a chicken kabob, grilled nicely with vegetables. The Shish Kebab is the beef version, and has flavors that really blend perfectly with the steak. I preferred this over the chicken, but still enjoyed the chicken.Love the interior - a beautiful, airy cafe reminiscent of a Mediterranean vacation. Touches of turquoise help frame the warm vibe of a place that doesn't serve alcohol (though you're invited to BYO Wine). Family friendly, Marsa is well on its way to being a tasty, healthy and relaxing lunch or dinner spot. More...
