    Very nice little cozy place, perfect to groups or couples, quite and not overcrowded like other places. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. The staff very friendly and accomodating, the owner comes and greets everyone, gives every table some kind of free treats, food or drinks. We had our first date there, we are both guys, and my date got a rose at the end of dinner, it's was very sweet and romantic. I would definitely recommend to check it out.

  • A great Mediterranean restaurant!

    This is a quiet place with a great Mediterranean selection. We had pre-fixed menu and were able to expend the variety for a small extra price, which was not bad at all. The stuff is very accommodating and they want you to have the best experience. I love Mediterranean food and all the kebobs and lamb chops were not disappointing. I would love to come again to try other dishes. The restaurant seems to be known in the neighborhood. Although it was a regular week night, it was full.

    The atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxing. Try the sampler at beginning of meal. We had the lamp shank and the lamb chops, very good. This place is also vegetarian friendly, and they made a great martini. The roses at the end of dining was a very nice . The family went for my son's birthday, and we left feeling we had a wonderful experience.

    We were welcomed into Pars Cove and well taken care of throughout our tasty meal. I recommend anything with the fesenjan sauce - walnut pomegranate sauce - especially the lamb shank.

Affordable.

    Really enjoyed our first experience at Pars Cove. Food was excellent and owner was very friendly as posted by others. Set meals (with wine, starter, and dessert) are a good value! Definitely recommend.

    This restaurant has a great ambience, friendly servers, and good food. It was the perfect place for our anniversary dinner, and the price was incredibly reasonable, especially for the dinner for two. The food was good but not excellent. I've had better Persian food elsewhere, but I would return to this restaurant the next time I'm in Chicago.

    This place has the aura of a straight-forward, sincere restaurant with complex, delicious food. The owner greets, seats, and explains the menu; and his wife works hard in the kitchen preparing unique, tasty meals. It's as if they do it for the love of food and people - and you can FEEL it while you're there. A great overall experience.

    Very quaint, very nice. Owned by a very nice couple, the husband greets/seats/pampers you while his wife churns out heavenly Persian food in the kitchen. A quiet, "local" place in a bustling neighborhood. We brought an old friend - that is Persian. And he raved about the quality and authenticity of the meal.

    Our dinner at Pars Cove was one we will talk about for a while. The restaurant is a neighborhood gem with indoor and outdoor seating. We chose to sit inside. From the moment we entered we experienced wonderful and gracious hospitality. Mr. Pars, who has run the restaurant since 1978 and still closely oversees the operation, even offered us seconds. The food was very good. (We are fans of Persian food.) Our meal ended with a complimentary dessert. Then as we left, the waitress offered us a couple of roses, which was a lovely touch. We left knowing that we would return often on our visits to Chicago.

    Food was okay but the service was horrible. We had to wait for half n hour to get the drinks and another half n hour to get our food. Even when the restaurant was not so busy, they took so long to get the food. They mixed up our drinks and didnt even bother to correct it when we told them. Not worth the price to go there again.

    We enjoyed the great value that groupon provided for a 4-course meal with drinks for 4 people. The server recommended fish, lamb shank, short ribs, and chicken, each with a distinctive sauce-all quite nicely flavored. The sampler appetizer plate was excellent including top-notch hummos and a variety of less typical dishes. The lentil soup and ice cream with fruit and honey dessert were nice complements to the rest of the bountiful meal.

    I would highly recommend Pars Cove. It is a family run restaurant and the 2 wait staff were kind, hospitable and efficient. When we ordered the sampler appetizer, they brought us a second one on the house. You can order individual meals, but they also have options to order a meal for two. My brother ordered the vegetarian dinner for two. I ordered the combination steak and chicken for two. All four of us really enjoyed our meal. The chicken and the steak that I had were very tender and well seasoned. We did order dessert at Pars Cove as well. I had the ice cream, which was tasty. We will definitely be returning. Thanks Pars Cove owners and staff.

    Chose to have dinner at Pars Cove on a Groupon because we had dine there before on a special occasion. Our first experience had been spectacular. Food and service both were excellent, especially the attention of the owner and his wine recommendation and description of entrees. Unfortunately our recent experience was nothing special at all. In fact, it was a great disappointment, given our earlier visit. However, it's pleasant enough for an early evening meal.
