Arabesque

Building on the success of New York City’s acclaimed Barbès Restaurant, Omar Balouma & Abdellah Ksiyer introduce Arabesque, named for the art form defined by a complex ornamental design of intertwined flowing lines & geometric figures originally found in Moorish decoration. Arabesque Restaurant resonates this in its architecture, décor and menu with a modern Moorish dining room, a traditional Moroccan lounge and a menu that carefully intertwines North African, Middle Eastern & Mediterranean cuisines.

"This was my second visit here, and the waiters and hostess were extra accommodating, as they were my first visit. Food is awesome! The sampler appetizer of hummus, roasted peppers and babaganoush, awesome, as is the salmon carpaccio.
I will return here on a regular basis.
The only complaint, just a little too warm.

"We had a reservation for 8 people at 8pm. they didn't have a table for us and tried to squeeze us into a table for 6. we tried to wait and have a drink and appetizers. The mixed drinks were undrinkable. They didn't have the chardonnay on the list, only 1 of 2 offered. The service and the entire experience felt very amateur. Fortunately, We left to have dinner somewhere else. $160 to have awful drinks for 8 left a very bad taste in our mouths."

"Found Arabesque on Yelp while we were in town for the Holidays. Can't say a negative word about the place. Food was fabulous, our server was attentive, ambience was warm and cozy. Will definitely go there again when we're in the city."

"The food was outstanding. It is very noisy in the back room with a dj and dancing. We asked to be moved to the front room and the were very accommodating. All the staff is very friendly. The owner sat down with us after the meal and we had an interesting discussion on his growing up in Lyon France and coming to America to open a restaurant."

"I was impressed by the good customer service, and how delicious the food was. I loved the music and the ambience. It is a great place to do out on date with your significant other, or with a group of friends. Music and the DJ was very good."

"A bit too loud and too dark, but otherwise a great time. I was there with an old friend and we enjoyed catching up and the friendly service made the night casual but still festive. Mint tea is delicious and I felt like I was in Morocco again."

"Food was excellent, music was loud. I think the waiter was fired. He gave me the wrong drink, and then opened the wrong bottle of wine for the next table. He then disappeared."

"we shared a bunch of appetizers which were all good - so good we ordered a 2nd plate of scallops. the waiter came back and said we only have 2 scallops left (there are 4 in an order) and you can have them for full price - not half price. Why even tell us - why not say we are out of the dish. He said my manager is not here to make a decision. How stupid - no other word for it. God forbid something serious happens when the manager is not there - clearly no one will know what to do!"

"In a neighborhood with few reasonable options that are pleasant, this was a find--totally from browsing Open Table., It is attractively decorated in a Middle Eastern style, with pierced lamps, cushions, etc. The food is very mainstream but good. I had a wonderful fresh mint tea. For lunch a salmon shish kebab that was delicious and came with salad and a white bean side."

"Had lamb steak and I ordered medium rare. It came out with well done. I asked staff that it was over cooked. Staff took the plate and came back and said " I showed it to the kitchen and they said everything was ok". I have been there few times about it was the worst. I will not ever go there again."
