Very pleasant experience for an I prompt New Years Eve early dinner. Delicious appetizers, very good entrees, exceptional dessert, first class service, loved the belly dancers and the decor. We are new in town and knew nothing about Pars before spontaneously choosing it for our early evening celebration on NY Eve. Will definitely return.

Great fun and good food! My husband and I both ordered kababs. We loved the dancing which is a plus on Friday and Saturday nights. Thank you, Pars Cuisine!

The food was delicious and was everything I expected from Mediterranean cuisine. When I was
asked where I wanted to eat that day, Pars was on the top of my list. I'm on the Mediterranean diet for health reasons, I have been wanting to introduce my family to it. They were very impressed by my choice and they raved about it all the way home. The ambiance and the music was very nice, in fact I really enjoyed listening to the music.

Your Dolmas are better than those I tried at a local grocery store and the falafel and spanakopita were quite tasty. To top off such a delicious meal there was a baklava with a candle on it, it was super good. Thank you for such an enjoyable evening.

Service was outstanding. Food was great. Very good taste. Was a bit pricey for the amount of food you got. Not a place that I can go to frequently. For me, it's a once a year place. I will be back. My girlfriend did not care for this type of cuisine.

Kebabs, tomatoes, Persian cut onion and sumac had us happy but rice is does not have the wonderful magic of Persian rice (fragrance and texture). The rice is everything. Also we had a yogurt starter and yogurt was not correct either. So okay but missing the deliciousness of really good Persian restaurants.
