About

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.

Great place to hang with friends and a bottle of wine. Entrees never disappoint, and the staff is friendly though a bit unpolished.

Really liked the intimacy of the restaurant - it is not very big. Service was on spot (Arturo was our server).Plates are good for sharing. Cocktails were good. Bonus was the performance of the belly dancer.

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.

The dining experience at Baboush is always good (they make the best babaganoush anywhere!). We had a great dinner with attentive and friendly servers, good wine (including Moroccan wine) and a delicious dinner. The decor is Moroccan and pleasurable.

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.

I was underwhelmed. There were no customers when we got there. The Lamb kebobs were dry. The Moroccan tea and shwarmas were good but the entrees left more to be desired. Overall mediocre experience.

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.

We have been to Babiush twice. Some of the food is familiar Mediterranean but there are some surprises as well.

We had a great meal at Baboush. The appetizers were delicious, and each of us enjoyed our main course. Our server was not really engaged... overall, a good experience.
