Souk is a Moroccan Bistro that offers Dallas a romantic dining experience along with an exotic atmosphere. Moroccan cuisine is extremely refined, thanks to Morocco's interactions and exchanges with other cultures and nations over the centuries. Moroccan cuisine has been subject to Berber, Moorish, and Arab influences. The cooks in the royal kitchens of Fes, Meknes, Marrakesh, Rabat and Tetouan refined it over the centuries and created the basis for what is known as Moroccan cuisine today. Souk is adding culture to the Dallas metroplex with its unique cuisine, music, and bazaar.

Love Souk! Excellent food and service. Belly dancer Saturday night. Only drawback is the lighting. Could be a bit softer and more intimate.

Everything was great for the most part. The food was excellent, the server was very attentive, the music was awesome and diverse, & the drinks were superb. You couldn’t even taste the alcohol but definitely feel it afterwards, that’s what you call a great bartender. Where they fell short is with the hookah. It was very harsh and I’m not sure if he even tested it himself. It’s like the nicotine level was super high for some reason. BUT, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who would like to have a great time and foodies. Prices are on the high end but with the food portion it makes it well worth it especially because the food is delicious.

The parking was a bit of a challenge, but it might have been just because of the event next door. The harissa chicken, lamb shawarma, and classic hummus were all excellent. Great service. We plan to return soon.

Very good food, in a vibrant atmosphere. Hookah bar outside may get a little noisy for some, but for those who want that experience, it is fun. Would have liked a couple more vegetarian options in the entrée section (had only two options, both somewhat similar). But the side of falafel gets you past the limited vegetarian options. The service was excellent. The waiter continuously monitored our needs and made recommendations that were not meant to sell more food but to cater to our needs. More than once, someone from the managerial staff came by to check to see if we were content. A happy place to be at.

Service was horrible for an empty restaurant with only our table of 6. I constantly had to search for our server to try to make eye contact to bring him to our table. After serving us, he did not come back to check on our food, he had to be told to remove mezza dishes from table, and I continued to signal to him to place new drunk orders. Embarrassed as I was the hostess. My harissa chicken was good but the chicken schwarma my friends were badly disappointed with and no better than cafeteria style. Our server would not have known as he never asked how are food came out.

Really good and inventive food, loved the fun cocktails, but it took two+ hours for a single round of drinks and two rounds of appetizers. Waiter was pleasant but seemed to have a hard time understanding us and/or using his electronic order pad. Drink spilled on the feet of one of the party by the server, and clean up was casual with no follow up from manager or waiter to bring her another napkin or check that the one they brought was enough to dry her off. Forgot to bring bread that had been ordered, forgot to bring to-go box. The long delays in order-to-food would have been more understandable but this was a very uncrowded Monday night.

So if your looking for a great evening and great mediteranean and morrocan fare, with music and the occasional belly dancer on friday and saturday nights. This is the place! Absolutely had a fantasticly, chill, romantic dinner with my girlfriend there last night. Outside on the patio a violin player bowed and enchanted with modern tunes. It really made for a very incredible night. The staff was very accomidating and made sure our night was a pleasure. This is a great date place guys!! Just a heads up if your looking for a date spot or a place to take that special someone . Souk is a definite must, with music , ambiance, great food and the lively buzz of Trinity Grove.

The management of this establishment seems utterly clueless. We sat down for dinner at 8:30. We ordered drinks, appetizers, and dinner shortly thereafter. We received drinks and appetizers quickly, but then ALL STAFF disappeared for nearly an hour, at which point the server came to tell us that our order had been lost. Hannah, the manager, came out to offer us free dessert for our inconvenience. Absolutely, utterly the wrong way to handle ignoring a table full of customers for over 45 minutes. They promised us that our meal would arrive in 10 minutes, which it did not. It’s extremely disappointing, because the food was excellent, but every step from the great cooks to the customer is marred by absolute incompetence.

If you want excellent Mediterranean food with attentive service, go to Medina instead.

Not sure if it is under new management, but it seems they have changed the way they present their dishes since I had last been there. The chicken schwerma was very dry and bland. I have always enjoyed it in the past when it was not served on fries and a piece of flat bread. Also, the lights weren't turned down as much and took away from the ambience. Probably won't go back. Too bad, because we really enjoyed it in the past.

The restaurant itself was beautiful and clean. However, the food was just satisfactory. We were charged for an entree that we didn’t order and unfortunately discovered this the next day. Our server was very slow and not present enough. This place has potential, but seemed understaffed.

We drove down from Frisco and met our sons for dinner. We had dined once previously and had a great experience and were expecting a repeat. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. We ordered family style as we had in the past. Our food came, we quickly ate, and left as soon as we were able. First, the restaurant was warm. Heat and humidity from outside was pouring in through propped open doors. Second, the drinks were poorly made. And, thirdly, the family dinner was not much more than large pile of over cooked and dried out meats on top of a pile of rice. We ate because we needed nourishment, paid the bill and left leaving partially drank drinks and plenty of what would have been a solid meal or two of leftovers. Weren’t worth taking home. Our last visit was only about 5 mos ago. Not certain what has changed but a drop in quality and attention to detail is evident.

Excellent restaurant in almost every way. Good food, excellent atmosphere, above average service, incredible iced tea. The only complaint I'd have is the decision to serve the dolma appetizer cold. Plus, it was expensive, relative to other Middle Eastern restaurants. The dolmas were hard, chewy, and just not very tasty.

Yaser is a good host and he runs a good restaurant. This place is clean, service is excellent, and the food it delightful. The filet kabab and Lamb Tangine was awesome. If your into Hookah's then this is good place to hang. Most of all the bar tender knows how to pour a healthy drink. The alcoholic drinks are reasonably priced. I've eaten @ TruLucks, WaterBar, and other fancy restaurants in Dallas and Souk is a good eatery at a decent price without all the excessive frills and charges.

If your looking to take your date on a budget and would like to impress upon her/him then this is a good place for under $60/couple.

I was excited to take some friends to Souk as I had tried it months before and really liked it. Unfortunately, it was no where near the quality or selection it once had been. Everything I asked for , they no longer served. Chicken Pastille...nope, Kibbeh...nope, Couscous...nope. I mean, if a Moroccan restaurant needs to serve one item, it's Couscous. It's their national dish for heaven's sake! And, being charged $30 for an extremely mediocre shisha/hookah, when I had just spent $300 on food and drink, was a bit much. My guests enjoyed the experience, but if this place wants to stay open, they're going to need to do a whole lot better.

If you like Mediterranean and particularly Moroccan food--this is the place. You get good food with the energy of the Trinity Grove area. Try the Mezza plate for a mix of appetizers and the Chicken Pastilla is as good as I have had any where. The lamb tagine was a bit dry, but the manager comped this which shows that they stand behind their food.
