Two things to note. First, I'm an ex-New Yorker and second, Fez is very noisy (although it's an overall noise and you really can't hear the conversations at other tables). OK, to the New York part. Ordered the lox & bagel to share with wife. It is served correctly (lox, bagel, cream cheese, capers & onion). The obvious issue is that (regardless of how hard various restaurants in the Phoenix metro area try), bagels should have a crust and not be soft. Another issue is if you are going to serve lox & cream cheese, don't butter the bagel (if I had known I would have asked to omit the butter). As for taste, it was good. Also ordered the hotcakes. They(2) were large (about 9-10" in diameter) and we decided on the strawberry/blueberry combo. the issue here is that although the hotcakes were good and the strawberries on top & within the batter were fresh, the blueberries were either dehydrated or freeze dried and coated with a sweetener (they were also inedible). It's summer. Blueberries are plentiful. We asked our server about the blueberries and he asked the chef. We were advised that "that's the way we do it". We were also told that these same berries were used in one of their drinks.

We love Fez brunch and stop by anytime we are in Phoenix. Great atmosphere, service and food! The Peach Bellini are the best...

I usually like coming here their food is pretty good, but recently came and had a bad experience when sat and waited for over 15 minutes and never even got served; no water no greeting nothing. 4 people left hungry. 9:30. Wasn't that busy.

Fez is hip, friendly and tasty. Our server, Nicholas, was the best. And the food....oh my. Berbere Roast Beef, Fez Salad, and the Spice Road Chicken Sandwich is what we enjoyed. The Mediterranean twists with their food is quite good. Free parking is a plus. Now we are looking forward to a return visit to try their other entrees.

Checked this place out while in downtown Phoenix for one night. The food and drinks were fantastic and priced well. The place has a nice vibe and was quite crowded even on a Wednesday. We had the arroz con pollo and the curry dish and both were excellent.
