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.

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.

Great Mediterranean food and a nice Moroccan-esc atmosphere. Quiet enough to talk without shouting. Service was attentive but not intrusive. I really Liked the Goat Cheese cigars and the Kebab.

I love this restaurant. I come to Dallas twice a year for work and each time Baboush is on my route. Always get the Filet kabobs for entree but mix up our sides. This time enjoyed the Goat Cheese Phyllo Cigars, Jajeer & Date Salad and Dolmas. I think I liked the Fatoosh salad i have had in the past better, but all was still excellent. Staff cares, chef is awesome, food quality is wonderful.

This small restaurant has consistently good food. I had the seafood stew tagine, and it was delicious--savory, nicely cooked, and very satisfying. The sweet tomato starter is wonderful--if you like tomato, you have to try it. The decor is interesting and lovely; service is gracious.

I took my friend there for a birthday he was craving Mediterranean food. This is overall rockin or Lebanese. The lamb Tagine was excellent I did not like the chicken tagine hardly at all... Tasted like pasty flour. They brought us a complementary crème brûlée and we had the Turkish coffee that was quite good. There was hardly anybody in the entire place and we weren’t even offered a second drink. So overall I wish that they paid a little bit more attention to us I’m not sure I would return unless I was craving Lamb

Excellent food and service!

Our waiter was attentive, good flavor descriptions and thank goodness he encouraged me to get the Moroccan Old Fashioned. New favorite drink!

They were accommodating for vegan. We shared the Mezze Platter, I had the Fattoush Salad topped with Falafel (special request) and hubby had the Lamb Kofta.

We will definitely be back!!

So many delicious options on the menu that it's hard to make a choice. The hummus and pita are fresh and richly seasoned. The lamb tagine has a wealth of flavors that blend to create a unique taste sensation. Our favorite restaurant in West Village.

We went for lunch and it was phenomenal! The flavors were perfect-transported me back to Morocco! I would have rated it 5 stars!
We went back a couple of days later for dinner and the food was average. The flavors were lacking.
