I am a bit surprised by the other reviews as this restaurant (& lounge) came highly recommended to me by numerous people. I have ordered out many times and have been fortunate enough to also experience the full experience - delicious food, live music, exceptional customer service & an amazing atmosphere to top it off. I am not one to review places very often but after seeing the others (when I was about to place an order) I felt I had to in order to serve this 5 star restaurant the review it deserves.

Don't bother coming here. If you crave Middle Eastern food, though, see the guy with the food cart just outside Pret a Manger on 36th and 5th. He's excellent.

Cold food. Servers and owners do not know how to treat people.

Don't know the last time a restaurant had me addicited like this! Had the luck of being invited to a business lunch here and was blown away by the decor. Once the food arrived I was blown away again as each small plate we ordered. We shared and I tasted a bit of it all, each plate just as good as the last. The super sweet waitress told us about the entertainment on the weekends so I gathered a group this past Sat night. Everyone raved! We were a party of 12 and the staff took such good care of us, even in the midst of it being a busy night. The menu highlights for us included moroccan cigars, different flavored hummus, tuna tartar, mediterranean shrimp and a risotto that was cooked perfectly ( not an easy task). I am not quite sure what the last reviewer is talking about as every thing I read about the restaurant on line is on par with my own experience. As I said in the beginning - Arabesque is addicting!

I ordered the Lamb Shank. It was ice cold and as tough as rubber bands. I complained and they only offered a free drink if I showed up. It was like $27 dollars with the tip delivered and it was medium rare but a very poor quality piece of meat. They should have offered a free meal in the future. There is no excuse for tough lamb.
