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!

Persepolis Ratings and Reviews
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.
I haven't had much experience with Persian food and was delighted to happen upon this restaurant.
Very much enjoyed the food and intend to return to sample some more of their menu. (Since NYC has sooo many restaurants, I rarely return to a restaurant, so this is a compliment to them :) )
Every time I eat here I wonder why I don't come more often. The food was soooo good and excellent service. I like ordering family style and sharing. Here's what we shared: the salad trio and the yoghurt trio for appetizer. It comes with plenty of warm bread. I also love the kashk bademjan, which is an eggplant appetizer. For main course, we had the marinated chicken breast kabob and ground beef kabob, with both white rice and cherry rice. We ordered sides of grilled onion and the torshi, which is pickled vegetables. We also ordered the fesenjan on tahdig - crispy rice. Fesenjan is very popular with Americans who eat Persian food. It's made with ground walnuts and pomegranate and has chicken. What a delicious feast! My tip: eat very little earlier in the day, because everything is so good!
The four of us loved the food. There are various kinds of rice. I had the one with sour cherries. I loved my lamb shank. We had a trio of eggplant purees , each one different and a trio of salads. The waiter suggested crispy rice with cooked herbs and fava beans on top that is not on the menu but Persians know to order. We loved that. Prices were gentle.
Honestly, this was one of the best meals I've ever had. The food is absolutely incredible, from the eggplant starters to the yogurt with beets, to the main dishes with the tastiest rice I have ever eaten. This is real, authentic Persian cuisine, which surprised me in its breadth of flavors and ingredients. I went into it thinking it was going to be similar to Lebanese food, but it was so much more than that. This is real, ethnic cuisine, and worth the trip uptown for a meal. Absolutely delicious, super reasonably priced (which was a nice surprise after several very expensive meals), and excellent service. Order as much food as you can, and share it with everyone at your table!
This is authentic Persian cooking in a lovely restaurant with great service and ambiance . It is one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I am a well -travel foodie. The cello kebab is excellent as are all the koreshts. And make sure to have the tadik with one of the koresht. I highly recommend it.
