A beautiful multi-level space that makes you feel as if you were parading the streets of a Souk in Morocco, amazing Nouveau Moroccan menu, different DJ's playing different kind of music everyday of the week, belly dancers, entertainment. Has an open kitchen, little pantry area that patrons can see in action while dining. Also has a beautiful outdoor, ideal for the summer where guests can seat, enjoy their hookahs and dine while listening to beautiful music. Tent area and elevated space that overlooks the whole floor as well as the DJ....At Le Souk Harem there is never a dull night.

i had a reservation for 9:30 pm and the manager wouldn't allow us to be seated as they were closing 15 minutes earlier than expected. please don't allow customers to make reservations if you will not be seating them.

Incredible outdoor seating and authentic middle eastern food. Highly recommend for a lively Friday or Saturday night with amazing music!

People that got there after us was served before me and my wife. The waitress gave us horrible service and tried to charge us a $25.00 tip for VERY poor service. It took here 20 minutes to close the bill. The drinks was not good at all. I brought a Pulsd so that's how I found this restaurant but I will not be going back nor will I recommend anyone to gather either!

Came here to have food with some friends. Loved the staff! Very accommodating, I had my sister come and even though they were busy they still were able to find seating for her right away. We had sliders and the merguez sandwich. DELICIOUS! For dessert I had a chocolate creme brulee! Heavenly!!! Fun place to come with anyone. Thank you so much Happy!

Don't buy the dinner promos for Le Souk, it's a scam! We purchased a promo from Pulsd for a 3 course dinner at Le Souk on 11/16, but when we got there, they told tell us that we can only order from a "special menu" for the promo, which was a reduced version of their the full menu! I mentioned to the server that the promo clearly states in bold letters that "All selections will be made from the restaurant's full dinner menu", and nothing was written about a "special menu", but she would not honor it. By this point, I did not want to go on arguing with her any further, in fear of them spitting in our food, so therefore I let it go. I don’t mind selecting from a special menu, but if this was the case, it should've been stated on the promo, and I should've had the option to review this “special menu” prior to making my purchase online! Although the food turned out to be good, and I probably would have gone back again even without the promo, but now I don’t think I ever will, because I don’t trust this place any more! I think it’s really shady they pulled a “bait & switch” on us like that! This place just gives me bad vibes! It’s infuriating and unprofessional for a business to treat customers like that, because it seems like they only want customers to come once only, not customers that are happy returning customers!

This was an awful experience, there was one server on staff when we arrived even though it seemed there were other staff milling about. Our food orders were not only extremely delayed but wrong and although our drinks were promptly delivered the deal we had relegated us to what we could easily replicate with a small amount of cheap prosecco and minute made frozen concentrate.

We felt extremely bad for the server on staff who had to field all of the tables by herself, although our orders were wrong and we only had 5 people we were charged the full amount and mandated a 20 percent tip which I hope went entirely to our overworked server and not retained by the establishment.

Dinner in a cloud of hookah smoke is simply not enjoyable. This establishment needs to decide whether it's a restaurant or a smoking club.

We redeemed a bottomless brunch deal offered through pulsd, and our rude waitress would not honor the drinks offered on the pulsd deal. The food (medium rare sliders and a chicken sandwich, respectively) came out extremely well done and burnt. The drinks were highly watered down, where instead of getting any form of buzz, we both got diabetes. The music was very loud and upbeat in an attempt to alienate and rush out anybody using the bottomless brunch deal so that they would not get a full 2 hours of value. Would not recommend coming here.

The worst experience in NY so far. Which bar on earth charges almost $20 for Jack and ginger. The place looks shady and the music is super loud. The restaurant has only one waiter waiting for 10 tables. THIS IS A MUST AVOID place in NY

This was our second time at Le Souk - the first time we came was an amazing experience. Unfortunately this time was utter disappointment. Not only was our waiter extremely rude and dismissive, but we had to constantly ask for the basics - water, utensils, napkins, CLEAN glassware (we received dirty glasses twice)... I watched our wine order sit for 10 minutes while he walked past it & our table multiple times before finally serving us. We also had never been on a Sunday, and received no communication that they only operated from a certain menu on Sundays. The only thing that saved our experience was the fact that the food was just as good as we remembered. I still highly recommend them for food and a nice spot to enjoy hookah, however don’t go in expecting quality customer service, because it seems to be last priority. Based on the (lack of) service, not sure I will personally go back there.

This was the best brunch I’ve ever had. The music was great and it felt like we were in a club in the best way possible. Josh S is a great waiter, a hero among men. The owners were amazing and I would definitely go back every weekend. Best day ever.

Went for brunch on a Saturday and I found the whole experience to be pretty sloppy. Took 20 min to get seated with a reservation and then another 20 to get a menu and another 15 before anyone would come over to take an order. In all fairness, the food was really good but the rest of the experience was entertainingly bad.

Well, it was disappointing for sure. Pretty dank environs and when we got there a rowdy and out-of-control crowd that actually turned into a fight..though this is certainly not the restaurants fault. We were told belly dancers would be at 9, but started to show after 10 when we were leaving. The babaganoush (sp?) was good but the bread/toast things were stale and the remainder of the meal was average, plus my scallop entree came only with 3 scallops.

1. They overbooked with a brunc party that had the whole place and ran to dinner hour.
2. They carded 50 year old women, but young people openly drank and got falling down drun - literally.
3. Le Souk, rather than just close for the event, put us in a “mezzanine “” that had no purpose (other than coat check), and put in 3 tables for us and two others. So, we had the coat line chatting (and having a fight with Management at one point) and falling over from drunkenness (though that young man apologized to us - and the next table, he tried to stabilize himself on)
4. It took forever, from 4 different people (none of whom were assigned, obviously, to the tables put in the coat check mezzanine) to get (variously): menus, orders in, cold (and not good) food brought, a check brought.
5. Someone at the table finally suggested we leave and go get food elsewhere.
6. Extremely noisy.
Thank goodness we didn’t check our coats!
Very negative experience.

Water pipe leaking over table and we had to ask to be moved - one dished ordered - never given - double drink ordered from bar but was not a double - follow up service in food and drinks not good and then a $44 automatic tip which just wasn’t warranted. Shame that service was blasé but the food was good. Asked for to get a cab and then called a car service?????

I would not recommend for dinner . I booked this place for a romantic birthday dinner for my boyfriend. Was nothing like the dining area pictured on their website at all !! The dining accommodations were not appropriate for hosting dinner service . I would not consider this place a restaurant. We were sat in a stair well along side a coat check line. There was another party of about 10 and another party of two. There was one other empty table of 2. And that was it . That was the “restaurant “. There was a constant line of people hovering over us the entire time . Noisy, constant traffic of people ... bumping into my chair the entire time. next to this make shift dining area was a another flight of stairs that led up to the club area. We didn’t make it there to see what it was like because I Was so irritated by the dinner accommodations. We spoke to the manager and she was understanding. She was apologetic and gave us a discount on our bill .

TRAGEDY!!!! This was by far the worse experience of my life at a restaurant or any establishment. The service was terrible, the server was dismissive and wouldn't explain the menu or offer the brunch menu. At first he tried to offer us a drink menu and had no intention of offering the bottomless brunch option which is priced at $35 per person.... When I asked about the bottomless brunch because I looked it up online, he said " oh yeah, you can do that if you want". The place was a mess, the glasses were dirty and you could literally cough on people's food as they carried it passed the crowd of people waiting to check their coats. The coat check is mandatory and it is a ridiculous $5 per coat, which you have to stand on line for the coat check which also delays your time to get a table. It took us 54 minutes of waiting downstairs and waiting in the coat check and then waiting for a dirty table before we got a chance to sit down so the bottomless 2 hours was knocked down to one hour. I wish this was a lie because the food is amazing but unfortunately nightmares do come true. I wonder if management is aware of how terrible this place is or do they even care. I've never been so aggravated in my life and Im pretty young and pretty tough so its takes a whole lot to stress me out but they've discovered the recipe. I would only recommend my worse enemies to this place and laugh maniacally. One of the bus boys were really nice and the front desk hostess was great but they couldn't save this place...INSANITY
