    This restaurant has been around for a long time and now I understand why. The food and service is outstanding. Portion size is large and the Persian menu selections were extensive. The waiter was very helpful explaining the different menu items and was accommodating with some substitutions. The meal started out with warm, tasty pitas and continued with our entrees and ended with a Persian baklava and homemade ice cream. We would definitely return as we enjoyed our evening there very much.

    Finally made it to the Persian Room after wanting to go there for quite some time. What a disappointment! The service was nearly non-existent - it took 30 minutes for the server to bring water. The food, although edible, is nothing special, certainly not worth the trip for so/so food and abysmal service. Will never go back.

    Not because the wait staff were not capable, but the management seem to not be in charge of the food or the floor! OVERBOOKED, UNDERSTAFFED, CHAIRS IN BAD NEED OF UPHOLSTERY, THIS PLACE HAS GONE DOWN HILL! I was a restauranteur for 19 years, trust me I know a thing or two about overbooked and understaffed situations! but I sensed no true caring spirit of the management (if there were any!) because I was never approached and asked about my experience by any. Then again, our online reservation was not tagged as an anniversary which one would hope to have seen acted on by the service staff.

    Great for absolutely anyone, even the pickiest of eaters. Fresh and pure food, as in, not cluttered with preservatives or sauces and pastes. Got very lively later in the evening with large groups of Persian families. Great to see that they are patrons, what better compliment to the restaurant! Staff was pleasant and knowledgable.

    The wait staff is unknowledgeable about the food and the menu. It is not uncommon to wait 10 minutes or more for a waiter, The table assignment system they use must not with very well. With that said add long as you like water and bread your good because they use a romer to keep water and bread on the tables. They might be better off having the romers take the drink orders, if the waiters can't get to the table for whatever reason. Notwithstanding the horrible waiters the food is great and well prepared. The place is clean and looks as you would like a Persian place to look.

    We decided to celebrate my husband's birthday there with our adult daughter. We sat on the upper floor to take advantage of happy hour. The room was completely empty. We ordered a appetizer platter with salad, hummus, yogurt sauce, grape leaves, pita and some other things. It was delicious. My husband and daughter split a plentiful main entree of chicken, lamb, beef and rice and I ordered a vegetable platter with rice. Their dish was quite good and flavorful. Mine was good, but charred. As we were finishing our dinner a large group of approximately 16 people sat down next to us. The waitress continued to provide us great service. Decor was opulent, old, worn and tired. Good for travelers who do not want to travel far to dine.

    We visited the Persian Room for the first time and were impressed. It is a nice, med-high end restaurant, great décor, easy to find. The food was good and plentiful, but I am not rating it great at this point, as they were simple dishes. The beef kabob (barg) and the lamb kabob, both wit rice. The desert was VERY good, but very rich. We will go back and will order different items to check the flavors.

    Have had many of the dishes before but their koobideh is fantastic and moist. Must order the yogurt and cucumber dip with the meal as it adds that special something to the flavors. Their bread is excellent as well. Very large helpings so if you plan on dessert you had better pace yourself and will most likely be taking some food home.
