Shiraz Grille was outstanding! I took my boyfriend here for a birthday dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious and healthy. The service was great and the whole experience was memorable. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant as well. It was relaxing and enjoyable.

The food could not have been better. My waiter was attentive. My only critique is that on a very hot September day, the temperature was extremely elevated in the dining room as well.

I was disappointed with food. First of all, there was no bread or veggie plate. We had to ask for the bread. They brought us Pita Bread warm in a microwave, so when it cooled it was hard. The entrees we ordered: Ghormeh Sabzi and Barg were marginal. The Ghormeh Sabzi was not authentic. The use of Kidney Beans is more authentic then pinto beans. In addition there were no dried limes. The Barg was not chargrilled. The rice was good.

First time going to Shiraz Grille. I had the prince of Persia cocktail which was fruity but well blended. I chose the lamb and fillet kebab which were both cooked perfectly and tender. The tea and pistachio baklava were great as well. Would recommend this to anyone.

Food was ok, nothing exceptional. The appetizer panir and sabji was just plain feta cheese and chopped raw radish. I would not have ordered it had I known that. The ice cream was incredibly good. The cocktails were also good.

Food was very good and like that they have light portions for many of their dishes. I had a lamb stew which was delicious and the Shirazi salad. We all enjoyed the basmati rice which was extra long grain and served with orange zest.

The flavors are subtle and beautiful. Service was spectacular and the ambience is cozy and quiet.

The food was excellent! I had never tried Persian food...I chose a veggie dish and had them make it spicy (and it was!) but it was delicious. We also tried a few different rices and they were great. I really loved the traditional wedding rice! Will definitely be back!

Service was extremely slow - took about 90 minutes to receive food and restaurant was not super busy. Then once we finished our food - it took another 20 minutes before we got our bill. We were also very disappointed that the restaurant relayed to OpenTable that we did not show up for our reservation. The redeeming factor in our experience was that the food was quite good and cooked perfect.
