Ansaris offers excellent food at reasonable prices and truly outstanding service. Only complaint is the noise level…dining area flows right into a very busy bar. This is not the place to go for a quiet dinner. Certainly worth the trip, however, and we’ll put up with the noise as long as the rest stays the same!

The food was good, although I thought it was better a few years ago. House white wine very good. The service was very friendly and fast other than wrong appetizer delivered. Atmosphere relaxed and freindly

Food was ok. Hummus is always great. Service was slow and not very efficient. We complained about our cosmos’s and the bartender came to our table to tell us we were wrong. I’ve never had that happen in any restaurant before

This is place is literally always delicious. I’m never disappointed no matter what I try, and they have a great variety of beers rotating on tap. Once in awhile we have even caught a belly dancer show! Don’t forget the baklava for dessert!

Was not the experience we we’re looking for and not what we’ve enjoyed in our past visits to Ansari’s. Was loud, lots of small children, and our server was very clearly inexperienced and seemed more suited to being a bartender. Took 10 minutes before he formally greeted us and we had to prompt him for what we wanted. Had zero sales skills and had he played his cards right, we would have ordered dessert but we couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Won’t be going back anytime soon. Great belly dancer though!

Food was good and entree sizes were large. Service was friendly, from checking in for our reservation to the wait staff. Had a belly dancer while we were there, which was interesting and entertaining.
Was overall a good experience.

Was immediately seated in the bar and not the restaurant area, we are both sober.
We both didn’t quite mind this mishap because we were just happy to be out during these times.
As the night went on food got delivered to the wrong table, I heard employees complaining, the god damn thong song playing in the background so loud conversation was almost impossible?!? On top of that the food was completely under par. Soup was inedible or old, rice was old, huge burnt outside piece of chicken in one of the plates.

Won’t be returning here or suggesting this place in the future, just is what it is.

We had a great time. The food was delicious, the sampler plate and the other Mediterranean foods, all of it.

The best part was our server. He was so nice to my granddaughter celebrating her birthday. He made all of feel as if we were part of their family. Thanks Charlie!

Lemonade was terrible, no offer of refill. Plating was not balanced with meat to vegetables ingredients. The lamb and beef was tasty but not well balanced at all.

Drinks pricey. Food was good, service was okay until he broke glass and it went flying all over the table, in the drinks, the food. Wanted to buy a t-shirt but the woman behind the register was too busy to help us and walked away so we walked out.

Third time visiting as a couple and the food didn't disappoint. We did the Valentine's day special. Left full with dessert. Beer selection was solid as always. The belly dancer raised the energy with an impressive performance. We'll be back!
