Persepolis Is a Persian/ Mediterranean restaurant with a dynamic atmosphere and 20 years of experience! The restaurant is famous for verity of kebabs and refreshing salads and gently spiced grilled meats. The yogurt and cucumber blended with a little mint is made exceedingly well and is an ideal cool compliment to Persepolis’ rounds of Pita & Barbari bread. Our kebabs which include moist and delicious salmon or saffron chicken are served without heavy sauces. Instead they are served with a choice of four rices including an intriguing blend of Basmati rice and marinated sour cherries. Our personalized wine list truly compliments our cuisine. We also offer a full classic bar.
We look forward to seeing you!

The food was extremely tasty, well prepared and enjoyed by all - even the friend who’s familiar with Iranian food. I’ll go back.

The night started out great at first; our server was very nice when we first sat down and got the menus. The food was good however, it was kind of a bummer that I had to wait almost till the end of my meal for one of my side orders. The reason I was upset with our experience was because my friend found a long brown hair in her food; and when we told the server he accused her of putting her own hair in the food and then started to accuse the rest of us for putting the hair in there. My friend has very short blond hair and the rest of us girls had our hair up during our meal; he did not apologize for accusing us.

Hit the spot in every way! We enjoyed the yogurt trio and the hummus (even though I filled up on delicious bread) salmon/lamb/beef kebab and sour cherry rice were delish!
