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.

Baboush Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant has a warm ambience with a unique decor. It was fairly quiet, so we could talk easily. We really enjoyed the hummus and the cigar appetizer with chicken and goat cheese. I am not a big fan of hummus, but theirs is amazing. The appetizers were delicious with a couple of cocktails from the bar. For our main entree, we selected the lamb chops, but they were a disappointment. We ordered the lamb medium, but on the rare side. However, it was a bit tough. The sauce and the rice were delicious. I would definitely go back to try more items from their menu.
We had the worst service. I am Lebanese and had been looking forward to trying this restaurant for awhile. Never going back! We are not high maintenance whatsoever, just two friends catching up. We got there at 6:30, ordered wine and asked about the happy hour appetizers. Our server was vague and unhelpful on the selection but we both ordered wine and an appetizer.
We were catching up so much we hadn't looked at the menu when he came over for our order. We asked for a few minutes so look. He came over after one and we smiled graciously and apologized and asked for just one more minute but we promised to look this time.
He never came back! Within the minute after our promise we knew what entree we wanted. My friend had finished her wine and he swept in and took her wine glass and continued walking before we could never say anything. We would've ordered 2 glasses each and reasonable entrees. We weren't being cheap. We kept looking over at him and he never came. It's 7:40 by this point and I had to ask another server for our check.
We get the check and the appetizers we had ordered on happy hour were full price. We asked for the change in the bill. The prices were honored eventually and we walked out. Thankfully there are many other restaurants in walking distance so we went and had our much awaited dinner somewhere else. Very disappointed.
I have been wanting to eat a Baboush since visiting Souk in Trinity Groves. I ordered the hummus with pitas because it was one of the few vegan dishes they offered. A great small dinner for only $5. My friends and I had our two dogs, and decided to try out the patio after leaving Mutts Canine Cantina down the street. They even had a leash holder next to an open table and I really appreciated that. Overall a great experience. Will definitely be back.
While the service was friendly and very attentive the food was not great at all. My chicken tagine was very bland and I suspect the accompanying potatoes and sauce were of the instant variety. The cocktails were tasty and creative, but the food was certainly overpriced for what it was. As far as ambiance it was non-existent. The website touted a colorful and vibrant experience, but the interior was bland and uninspired. I would go back for drinks and to hang out with some friends, but not dine - certainly not for a special occasion.
The host was rude and seemed to have no idea how to talk with customers or manage the flow of table turnover, and the food pretty seriously uneven--some dishes were good, some only okay, one almost inedibly salty. It's a pretty room, though seating ranges from comfortable to comically cramped. We used to like it. There's no reason to go back.
It was our first time at Baboush and we dine out a lot in and around Dallas. We are always trying to find a neighborhood gem, a place out of the ordinary that really is authentic and unique and Baboush fit the bill to a tee. I must say this was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we have had in a long time. The food was delicious, and our server was friendly, informative, and efficient. Both the manager at the beginning of our meal and the owner towards the end of our meal came up and asked how we were doing. This proprietor is truly someone who cares about his business and the experience of his clientele. I started with the arugula salad with the dates and goat cheese which was a marvelous combination of sweet and bitter flavors. My husband ordered the cigar appetizer- which was spinach and goat cheese rolled in a crisp phyllo dough that was out of this world. For my entree, I ordered the (Lamb Tangine) recommended by our server as a truly unique dish. It was a delectable combination of tender lamb cubes, sweet potato and Turkish spices. My husband ordered a chicken dish served over hummus which was also very tasty. I can't say enough about how wonderful our evening was. We will surely be back with friends to enjoy this new and delightful find.
We decided to celebrate NYE at Baboush after attending a Dallas Bach Society performance at the Church of Incarnation. We hadn't been in a while so we're pleasantly surprised by the new (to us at least) menu and cocktails menu. The music transported us to far away lands, and the food took on a delightful trip involving all of our senses: cardamom, honey, cinnamon, ginger, paprika, etc. Infused in our hummus, babaganoush, beef kebabs and duck confit. We'll continue to go back over and over. Thanks, Yaser for treating Dallas to such spectacularly exotic delicacies.
I had dined at Baboush previously as part of a food tour (shout out to Jason our tour leader who was awesome!), and loved the food and atmosphere. My wife is a vegetarian, so finding good restaurants that cater to diverse dining needs is always on my mind. She had never had Moroccan food before, and was unsure, but after the sampler platter appetizer and her falafel, she was hooked. The staff are great, and the manager (owner?) came out to visit with us after our meal to make sure every one of our needs had been met. This is the kind of service one doesn't see much anymore, and really ended our trip to uptown on a high note.
