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.

    Be cautious when making a reservation here. We showed up on Valentines Day and were told we would have to wait for a table to open for a while even though we had a reservation bc in the employees exact words “we have about 20 others aside from you still coming in that are on the list” Why book so many reservations with so little tables? He was very rude about it. The music was so loud we could barely hear him speaking to us from only feet away. We left and found another great local option. Will never return.

    Although it is a nice touch to have a singer, unfortunately it was too loud. We could not have a dinner conversation. May be a softer background music unless the music was such that we can participate. Otherwise, the singer was great.

    We had a fun date night with some friends and Baboush really hit the spot. Had to start with the Mezza Platter. My wife raved about the Chicken Shawarma and I really enjoyed my Baboush Kofta. Definitely recommend!

    Table not ready and asked to wait by the bar but not one asking us if we wanted to order a drink for 15 min. During dinner, asked for bottle of Pinot Noir but they didn’t have any. My friend got the wrong order for main dish. Waiter asked me to sign after paying with credit card and indicated ‘don’t worry, tip is already included’. When asked to print the receipt, he had included a 20% tip for a table of 4 without asking. Overall disorganized and disappointing experience compared to previous visits.

    Surprisingly delicious tasting, clean, layered rich flavors. Falafel was better than 99% of what's out there Babaganoush was smokey and sultry Lemon chicken sang a mouthwateringly amazing "song" Lamb couscous - rich & velvety & delicious Baklava fresh, crisp, chewy, wonderful.

    Mediterranean cuisine setting a standard for others to meet. Recommend Baboush Kofta which was grilled ground lamb & beef aranged in the missionary position, shoestring potatoes gave great dynamic range to the texture, on a bed of perfectly al dente basmati rice (note the preparation does not use the saffron popular at Darna), tomato sauce, harissa labneh lapped over the top, pomegranates sprinkled around for a spritzy element to the taste, and pistachios inconspicuously patrolling the plate for a bite, and taste. ($19). Paired with ana Beirut white wine. The Moll recommends the beef filet served in a milieu of mediterranean flavors. Dessert basically did for us what J. Robert Oppenheimer did to the heat in New Mexico. Magnificent Baklava Bowl had a baklava base, ice cream, liberal sprinkling of coconut, blueberries, strawberries, pistachio, and mint. Bravo - but let me go! We took lots home (allegedly for our increasingly obese dog). But, we shall return. This is a real find. Service is great too.

    The ambiance and service were very nice. I enjoyed my dessert and drink. I did not care for the Apricot lamb. The lamb was dry, and I wouldn't say I liked the texture of the Kusko, but my husband and I still had a great time because the restaurant was excellent and the staff was pleasant. There was not a lot of noise. I will not return, but I had a lovely time. Oh, the goat cheese cigars were delish!

    It’s not at all the same without Henry there running it. It was always so wonderful to go when he managed it. Now it has a much more limited menu, the cocktails are much lower quality. We had been loyal regular customers but we won’t be back. Baboush now resembles a veneer of good restaurant. What’s underneath is uninspired bland fast causal dining.

    First time here and it was such a good experience. The food was delicious the hummus with lamb is a must. I had the lamb with quinoa and it was absolutely delicious. We had the crème brûlée as well and it was delicious. Highly recommend this spot! They also had live music so it was a nice plus.

    This was my first time at Baboush and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was amazing and so was the live music. My date and I felt as though we were in another country. The food was very good and the portions were large - not the typical small plate. The cocktails were interesting but I would go for the wine next time. The only downside was the service but luckily we were not in a hurry. I would definitely go back!

    We love Baboush and decided it was the place to dine before ringing in the New Year. Unfortunately, the menu was a seriously condensed version of the full menu and we paid a lot more than the normal prices. I expected to pay between 80-110 for dinner for two. I paid 160 for 1 appetizer and 2 entrees. We only had water and an unsweet iced tea. The service and food were awesome. The ambiance is fantastic. But we left feeling like we had been taken to the bank.
