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 really good experience. Outside seating was nice. Food was well made and good. Entree was a little less than what i hoped for, but still good meal. Kinda pricey, but what isnt these days? Great menu and good food. Will be going back.

    We always have a great time at Baboush, the food was great. The cuscus was slightly on the bland side but the remainder of the dishes were excellent. The ambiance is always spectacular outside, especially with some hookah. We will be back.

    No belly dancer. Not much wine list. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Unfriendly at the reception. Very expensive for what you get. Loud

    BaboushResponded on July 17, 2022Dear DelB we have not had a Belly dancer for over 5 years, as for the wine considering how small the restaurant is we have over 35 different wines from California to Italy, France, Lebanon, Argentina etc hence the 4 cabinets with 20 shelves full of wine at display in the dining room. as for prices our beef kabab is a Halal tenderloin Choice grade that we serve 10 oz of it with rice and vegetables for $35 which is barely covering its cost and that goes to every single item we have !!!!

    Appetizers were great but my meat was very dry and stringy. The waitress recommended this beef and apricot dish. I did not enjoy it..,very very expensive and I was dismayed to see a 20% tip was already included on the bill. 🫤

    Based on other reviews, we started with hummus, wings, and cigars (both kinds), and split the apricot lamb couscous for our entree. The service and food was all excellent. The live music was a nice addition, not obtrusive at all. We’ll definitely be back.

    Lovely time celebrating a friend’s birthday. Service was a little lacking as the servers didn’t come by very often during the two hours we were there. I was also a little thrown off by the baked in gratuity that was on the first receipt, which was being covered and paper clipped down to the tray. The receipt I was presented had a line for a tip and for the final amount, which seemed off so I looked through all the receipts given and noticed my total already included it. That seems a little shady as I could have accidentally left two tips. Otherwise, the food was excellent as always and the ambiance was fairly decent.

    BaboushResponded on March 15, 2022Service is added on every ticket before we present it to the guest and it is clearly placed over the total, I have been asking the Point of sales company to remove the TIP line since before covid but to a no avail; rest assured even if you place Tips on the Tip line it is never added and would not be added. How was your experience after visiting for Two hours? was your food as amazing as the time you spent? please let us know we would love to hear about it. Hope to see you again soon

    Biggest issue was it felt like we were literally sitting with another couple that we didn’t come with. The tables were too close together. It was odd because the restaurant was wide open and they sat us right next to each other. Pretty good overall, but I also have other Mediterranean spots I’d go back to before this one.

    Really enjoyed Baboush last night. Friendly staff and quick, almost too quick service. Nice pour on the glass of wine and a fairly sized cocktail. The “cigars” were delicious, the Fatoush salad was light and flavorful and the chicken shawarma was great. My only complaint was that the menu was shortened for Valentines weekend (they made shawarma for us even though it was not on the menu) and prices were jacked up over “normal times”. Regardless, we enjoyed dinner and look forward to returning soon.

    Fantastic food, impeccable service (Randa was our server) great music and atmosphere....can't say enough good things about this place! They even gave a long stemmed rose to each woman in honor of Valentine's Day. The Apricot Lamb Tagine was mind blowing and the desserts, Triple Chocolate and Brulee were absolutely to die for. The man at the door (do not know his name) who was the host had a heart of gold and was very kind. The staff here really pays attention to detail and makes sure that each and every guest is taken care of properly. ....a totally pleasurable experience. We will be back, soon I hope!

    I was expected Baboush to be crowded on the Thursday evening I went. However, it was very quiet, with just a few diners. The front door was opened, probably to accommodate the few outdoor diners, which let it a cold breeze. Still, it was comfortable, service was fast and very good, and the ambience was peaceful. I really loved it! The food is delicious and portions are generous, and the price matches the area.

    The food is great. I had Shrimp kabobs, I would have them again for sure. Wouldn’t recommend the cocktails. The service was lackluster. I made a reservation via Open Table, but upon arriving, it was clear that they don’t even look at that. Sat outside; the tables and chairs were just kind of strewn about without any rhyme or reason and it was up to me to find a place and gather/organize some chairs to sit in. That was an awkward, embarrassing, noisy few minutes. There were ankle deep piles of leaves under the tables closest to the street. They should simply sweep them away so that guests can sit comfortably. I was glad that my date was running late so they didn’t have to see all of that.
