Food was very good. Service is very slow. Decor needs to be updated. Also please try not to seat customers next to each other if the place is not busy. People were seated
next to us, when the place was not busy, and we could hear their loud conversation. Experience was not good

Love Marjan! Food is fresh and delicious! Lots of menu options but not so many that you don’t know where to start! Staff is friendly and eager to please.

Nice selection of kabobs and vegetarian options. The lamb kabob was very tender and flavorful, as was the filet mignon. Best part was the homemade ice cream. I think our server was brand new as she never came back to check on us or refill glasses, and we were there for almost 2 hours on a Tuesday night when it wasn't busy. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

This has become one of our favorite places. The food is delicious, fresh, and very healthy. Sometimes service is a little slow, especially when there's a big party, so we try to go on the early side before it gets crowded.

The food is really good, good flavor and presentation, worth returning more times. Not cheap compared to others in the same cuisine, but the quality of the food is good enough to pay a little extra. space is small, but we didn't have problems finding a table.

Marjan is a hidden gem. The food is outstanding, from the lamb shanks to the filet mignon from the kabobs to the grilled salmon, all are spiced and cooked to perfection. The waitstaff is terrific, sincerely hoping that your meal and your experience are most enjoyable. The value is unbelievable and bringing your own keeps the price down. I love this place.

Always great food and good value. We like their kabobs, stews and specialty rices. The dolmeh has a great sauce on it for dipping their light bread.

I was at Marjan 3 times this spring and altogether I was with 30 different people. To a person, everybody loved the food, whether beef, chicken or vegetarian. The staff were warm and friendly and quick enough and efficient, and it's a BYO which is great. The flavors of the dishes were varied and intense and great. The rice dishes are something to write home about for sure.

Headed here on a Saturday night with a reservation for 3 at 7 PM. When I arrived, I was seated immediately and the restaurant was relatively empty. In the next 15 minutes, they had to turn people away it got so busy. It stayed busy the rest of the night, so a reservation was necessary. Once all three of us were there, service was a bit slow. I didn't have an issue with this, because we were talking and catching up. I wouldn't try coming again on a Saturday night if I had plans after dinner. Service was very nice, and incredibly helpful. At one point, our server asked us if we wanted to try the sauce that came with one of the dishes before we settled on our order. Nice touch!
We ordered three different dishes, and they were all very full of flavor and delicious.

They allowed us to linger, talk and finish our wine until it was time for them to close.

This is a lovely BYOB with a small business feel, really delicious food and friendly employees. I will definitely add it to my list of places to go again.

The food was absolutely delicious. The quality of the meat in the kebabs was top notch. The rice was fluffy and cooked well. The staff was helpful without being overbearing. They rotated refilling our drinks and cleared the table for the next course seamlessly.
My first complaint was that there was a table of 8 that grew quite noisy and disrupted the ambience. Not Mershan’s fault but when there is a big reservation like that they should have been seated in one of the corners not in the center.
My 2nd complaint was the bathroom. The toilet was leaking and the overall designed looked like it belonged in a mom and pop burger joint , not a fine dining experience.

Overall however I will go back and I would recommend others to eat here.

I've been to Marjan several times--always excellent! This time was to celebrate a birthday and we were surprised when "Happy Birthday" was played over the speakers and everyone in the restaurant sang along! Only complaint is that it's a tight space and gets crowded and noisy.

I met a friend for lunch there, and we ordered several vegetarian specialties. The portions were very generous, and the eggplant and okra stews were both spicy and delicious. The rice dish was very tasty, but we ended up eating most of the rice that came with our vegetable entrees, as well. The host was attentive and courteous. It was not busy at lunchtime, but might get more crowded in the evening, with movie attendees looking for a new dining option.

As always, the food was excellent. There was a convention across the street at the Hyatt, so the restaurant was packed, which is why it was noisy.

My GF and I met our friends there .

Great place. The staff is very friendly . That pales to the food.

I had a lamb kabob, I saw shrimp kanibs, lamb chops and we all thought it was great .

Challenge yourself!!!! It will be worth it.

We celebrated a family member's birthday here and the staff was extremely attentive and very personable. We all enjoyed everything we had, sharing everything that was ordered. Even the finicky 13-year-old enjoyed the fare; he even insisted on bring home more lentil soup. The standouts were the stuffed grape leaves, the lamb shank, lamb chops, and cornish game hen. We will be back.
