Since traveling to Morocco several years ago, I've yet to find a place anywhere in this country that makes authentic Moroccan food, so this was a real find! The bastilla was done in rolls, making it a handy finger-food for an app. We had the marinated olives, salad and lamb & chicken tagines, all delicious! The server and manager were... More

This is a great spot to sit outside and enjoy your company. The food was really good. Highly suggest the meat and cheese plates.

This restaurant, centrally located in Raleigh but not walkable from the main downtown area, has a pleasant ambiance and plenty of parking around the perimeter. It's housed in an old brick building turned upscale and elegant through some creative design. There's a large, open patio area in the front with a fountain, surrounded by tables that also have heaters for... More

We went here during restaurant week and were expecting a nice dinner. While the atmosphere is nice and secluded, we were not allowed to sit outside without a reservation, despite almost every table being open the entire time we were there. The food was extremely disappointing and we didn't even really get a deal or discount for restaurant week at... More

Terrible service. Waiter rushed us and had awful attitude. Disappointed 20% tip automatically added to bill. Little incentive for the staff to meet minimum expectations. Negative experience overshadowed some pretty good food. Will not return or recommend to friends.

Babylon has delicious food. The servers were great! I tried the pesto chicken pizza and it was amazing!!! It was cooked in the outside kitchen. We all shares food so all of the dishes were flavorful!

We wanted something different for a change. Parking was on site, which we didn't expect. We are outside and it was lovely. Despite July heat, it was very comfortable. The court yard was nicely decorated and seating for groups to couples. Service was first rate. We ordered several small plates. Our waiter made sure they came out one at a... More

My husband and I had a very disappointing dinner at Babylon. It was our first visit. The outdoor dining beside a pool of water was enticing and peasant, but from there it went downhill. I ordered a Tanqueray gin and tonic which arrived without a lime. When it finally arrived, the first sip told me it was not Tanqueray, and... More

We visited this restaurant for my daughters birthday. We ordered the Hummus, Calamari, Chicken Pesto pizza, Tiangie Lamb and the Couscous Royal. For dessert we had the Baklava with ice cream honey and almonds. We complemented the dishes with a nice Malbec, unfortunately I do not recall the label. All dishes were great specially the Moroccan dishes. The mix of... More

This was our first trip to Babylon. The atmosphere was impressive, loved the patio. I have to say I just wasn't impressed. A restaurant like this should have an impressive wine list. The wine list was terrible to anyone who knows wine. My husband's first beer choice was not available. The appetizers were fine and the dinner ok. I would... More
