Traditional Persian Pastry with Honey and Pistachio
The food and portions were very good. So was the service. The drinks were kind of weak. We were outside so there was no issue of noise. A very nice place to go for a meal.
Love Persepolis and have been eating there for years. Consistently good.
Good service and good food
I love the food since the first time I have come to Persepolis. Must try the beef kubideh with the saffron rice.. And my all time favorite is the Falludeh dessert.. I will be back again for sure.
Food was excellent! Everything was extremely flavorful and delicious. Great prices and value.
The Lentil Soup is not listed on the menu but seems to be available every day. I enjoyed it. The Cornish Hen cooked on a skewer was dried out and had little taste. The restaurant offers three kinds of rice, I told him that I wanted the Cherry Rice but he brought the Bean Rice. It wasn't until after he served me the Hen with the wrong rice that I realized he gave me the wrong rice, he never came around to check to see if everything was okay.
Excellent service and the food is amazing. One of NY’s gems.
Food was amazing, the faludaha dessert was something I’d never tasted so yum, dishes are delicious the rice options so different and taste awesome
Poor service, the host was rather rude when we arrived, certain attitude and waiter kept forgetting to bring the dip or be around.
Great dinner. Staff is wonderful.
Persepolis is always great...wonderful food, reasonable prices, excellent service and lovely ambience.
First time here, but not the last. Everything was delicious and plentiful. Great appetizers, mains, and dessert. Very reasonably priced for what you get. Can't wait to go back.
Attentive service, pleasant atmosphere, authentic Persian food. Would highly recommend!
The lentil soup was pleasing and I would order it again. I ordered the Lamb Shank. It was served at room temperature. Was that the waiter's fault or the way the kitchen serves it? For $24, I thought that the amount of meat on the shank was small. The flavor of the lamb was overcome by the flavor of the liquid it was cooked with. It came with a choice of rice options or a salad.
I really like the food here, especially the mezze. I live on the opposite side of town, so I head to Persepolis every time I can create a reason to be in the neighborhood for lunch. The lunch special is a good value; but I often order a la carte. The reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's a "nice neighborhood place."
We really enjoyed the lemon chicken and the lamb shank.
I love love love this restaurant! Our food was delicious and well worth it. My partner and I have been here twice, a very busy Friday and a slow Monday (both at night). Even for a full house, I don't think it was very loud and the ambiance was nice with dimmed lights and the friendliest staff. Will def be coming again on occasion, especially for date night<3
We have not been since Covid 19 so were eager to return. The food was as fantastic as always. Less people in the restaurant, as expected, so less "atmosphere" but not a disappointment at all. Staff were attentive. So happy to have you back!
Food Pre- made and is tough meat and old . My son wanted branzino ( he is 5 yrs old) the waiter said it has bread crumbs so he said he wants it without bread crumbs so waiter says it’s pre-made so my son says why ? He wants it fresh . Anyway long story short food was horrible . I ordered lamb shank was tough meat.
Great food for any reason
We enjoyed several of the traditional dishes and appetizers. Overall a very old experience.
Typically Iranian food.awesome .The owner was very nice and courteous
Staff are super nice, food is excellent, wish they had more vegetarian khoreshts
One of our favorites....great menu and food, good service, nice ambience, and terrific value. Its always a pleasure to go there or order for delivery.
Fabulous- love this place and can’t wait to return!
I’m Persian and I know Persian food can taste so much better. So much turmeric in the ghorme and gheime stews. Beef kabab dry , should be juicy. I hope to see improvements since we don’t have too many Persian restaurants in the city . Thanks
Nice lunch time break - food is tasty and service is excellent.
They have a great lunch special going on now and we had outside dining.
Heaters, seperation and food was excellent.
This was our second time dining at Persepolis and the experience was just as fantastic as the first time. Overall service was exceptional. The menu has many great options to choose from and the food is delicious (highly recommend the basa fish). I would also like to thank our waiter Oscar who was super friendly and attentive. Our friend was so happy with her birthday celebration at Persepolis. We look forward to going back soon!!!
Great Persian food!! Delicious. Fesinjoon was awesome!
Been going there for years. The food never disappoints. Love the variety of rice, especially the one with sour cherry! Great drinks too, very unique.
Excellent meal, and very accommodating of our gluten allergies!
Really looking forward to trying Persian food! Pretty with a relaxed atmosphere - and with that be prepared to spend a few more dollars (but not an unreasonable amount.) The eggplant mirza appetizer was just ok. We decided on the entree Persepolis because it had 3 of the meat entrees - Saffron chicken, sirloin barg, and ground beef kubideh. The sirloin and beef were excellent, however disappointed in the saffron chicken because I love saffron and it was a little dry. The basmati rice with sour cherries was delicious and would love to return just for that! Appreciated the nice relaxed atmosphere - will return!
The ambience of this Persian restaurant was refreshingly modern and the food and service were both great. Will definitely keep this one on my list of go to restaurants.
Yummy food and great service.
We had the set lunch. The food was very nice and the service very friendly. We will definitely go back!
As always, the service is impeccable! The food is outstanding and the restaurant is beautiful, warm and friendly. We have been coming to Persepolis for over 20 years. Perfection!
Food was amazing...loved it! The servers and host were lovely to us as well. Will be back!
Have been going to Persepolis since it was small storefront. Food and service continue to be great and ambiance better than ever. Tables not on top of each other so you can talk!
