I normally don't write reviews but we recently had a wedding catered by Tagine, and I wanted to send out a message to cyberspace on the superb cuisine, styling, decoration and service from this establishment, which is undermarketed. We had 200pp at my country house where we have typically used your run of the mill catering establishment in the past. This time around, we decided to try something a little exotic but not too intimidating for our guests. Tagine, ( the owners requested I don't use their names) was great from price points, accomodating different tastes, vegetarian options, and offering some simpler dishes for our naive guests. They invited us for a FREE TASTING!! Who does that in NYC in 2007. Completely FREE no tricks, no scams! They came to see our home prior to the event, and were extremely responsive over 8mos up to the big day. They pulled through even though some guests arrived late and we had to make some adjustments to the table settings and courses. They provided the entertainment, the live musicians, dj, all of which were extremely well managed. The servers were professional, friendly, and extremely energetic. The food was absolutely spectacular, generous portions, the flavors were amazing!! Fresh tasting, not overly spiced and not salty! Even our naive guests loved the authentic Moroccan dishes. One of the most important features was their after party clean up. Everyone, including one of the owners, stayed until every inch of the kitchen and prep facility was cleaned, including the outdoor area. I would recommend this establishment as a facility for any catered event. Don't let the small size of the restaurant fool you, I hope one day they can have a larger restaurant space, but for now, go and experience this great place, your tastebuds will be very very happy.
Pros: SPECIAL EVENTS, QUALITY INGREDIENTS, GREAT CUISINE, FRIENDLY SERVICE
Cons: a little small, sometimes need more staff, late night
