Baboush

$30 and under
Middle Eastern
The atmosphere is Moroccan chic, the cocktails are smashing, and the small plates — like a perfect meze platter, a gorgeous moutabal du jardin salad, a cigarlike spin on chicken bastila, wonderful kefta kebab and more — are not just beautifully prepared, but well-priced, to boot. As grazing ops go, it doesn’t get much better than this alluring spot where Lebanon meets Morocco in West Village.

Love the food at Baboush and the service was outstanding.
I ordered the apricot lamb tagine. Not much in the way of apricots and I thought the serving was small for the price paid.
The live music was great, but the guy played American tunes on an oud. Weird. Would have preferred more traditional arabic music.
Parking is tough. Most spots are for 1 hour and so I had to get up and move the car half way through our meal.

Loved everything about this restaurant, such a nice experience! The food was so flavorful and wonderfully made and presented! The ambiance was beautiful, dim lights and beautiful music made for a very nice date. Their cocktails were fabulous and service was above and beyond. Will definitely be back to try more dishes from them. The lamb was perfect.

Went here for my birthday and the food was excellent. The staff was almost too attentive however and made us feel slightly rushed to finish our food. With that being said, this is a go-to for those Moroccan cuisine urges.

This is my favorite restaurant in Dallas. I love the atmosphere, and the music on friday nights. They even have a wonderful patio where you can sit and enjoy passersby in uptown. The food and drinks are authentic and amazing. Henry is the best part though. He will explain the food to you and even tell you how its prepared. Start with the Meza platter, and end with the creme brulee. You must have the sangria too. All the entrees are amazing! Tell Henry Mr President sent you.

It was a good restaurant, however they didn't advise when I called that the hookah was first come first serve. However, they were quick to accommodate our party.
The shrimp kebabs were not on skewer sticks, which were different.
The wings were good and so was the couscous.

Highly recommend the lamb apricot tangine. Great service, very helpful with finding the right wine. Let us sample probably five before we found the one we wanted.

The food is excellent. No prepackaged frozen crap marked up at a high price here. This is real food, it’s authentic, and it’s different in a good way. Everyone comes perfectly seasoned. You won’t find yourself adding salt and pepper. They have a water ninja that keeps your glass full without even realizing it. The pita bread is delicious and plentiful. The Baboush Mezza platter is the perfect appetizer. I’ve had their chicken, lamb, steak, and salmon and nothing has been short of excellent. The service is top notch and the ambience is beautiful. You must try this place.

Love music started around 7:30 or 8, so it was at the end of our reservation. I was perfect since we could talk during our dinner and enjoy the music after! We will be back!
