Pureed chickpeas and garlic blended with Tahini and olive oil
The kebabs are all amazing! Very intimate and delicious date night spot.
Fantastic authentic Persian restaurant in Michigan, which is a rare find. Highly recommend the kabobs (soltani and joujeh) and the flavorful specialty rices (we got shirin polo)! For dessert, the saffron ice cream and Persian baklava are wonderful.
A good friend took me out for my birthday. I loved the quiet ambience. The Persian cuisine was delightful. Our waitress answered all our questions and helped us order. Their stuffed grape leaves are phenomenal. We also enjoyed the warm eggplant dip with the crispy onions served with warm pita triangles. I had the grilled lamb with the specialty rice and my friends had two different chicken dishes. We appreciated being able to order smaller portions of each of our dinners. My birthday treat was baklava. Not the usual syrupy honey laden kind. This was the traditional pistachio version with rose water. Just slightly sweet. A truly impressive and celebratory dining experience. We’ll be back!
Thank you very much for the kind review! We hope you return soon!
Food was amazing. Lamb shank was perfect. Hummus excellent.
Very nice server and great food!
We have only been here twice, but it is our new "date night" pace. The staff are friendly and helpful when it comes to describing the food when we had questions. The wedding rice is great paired with a spicy dish. You can add spice to make your dish hotter if you like. We each ordered something different and tried each others dish. We have liked all four dishes we have tried so far. We just love this place!
First time back since restaurants reopening. They've done a great job with safety and social distancing. Food was as delicious as always and service was terrific. One of Grand Rapids best.
If you like Persian food I highly recommend it. Awesome rack of lamb.
Great taste and good selection. Tastes authentic with matching ambiance. Really enjoy every time we go there
Charming little restaurant. I got the Narange Saffron Morgh and my wife got the Ghormeh Sabzi. Food was really good and was worth the money. Definitely try the Traditional Wedding Rice, especially if you get spicey food. This was our first time and we were pleased with everything.
The Shiraz Grille is a gem. The atmosphere is quiet and allows for conversation. The food is always consistently good and the staff is courteous. Noisy restaurants are fine for a high energy experience, but Shiraz is perfect get away for a quiet dinner and wine.
More people should take advantage of this place. Excellent food and service with a nice ambiance (very little noise) compared to so many new "industrial-like" restaurants.
I was eager to visit Shiraz because I enjoy trying different cuisines. I was a bit disappointed in that I believe the spices/seasonings may have been toned down for Grand Rapids taste buds. My “lamb shank”, ( I ordered the small portion ) tasted more like beef than lamb and there again, the seasonings were non detectable. The ambiance was beautiful although we were seated at a table for two in the back of the restaurant that faced a wall even though the restaurant was not very busy. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the different types of rice side dishes which were tasty but there again, needed about 3 times the amount of spices & seasonings. If we were to go again, I would ask for my food to be seasoned a bit more generously, which I am sure they would oblige.
Food was bland and was not what we expected for the price
We arrived a little late for our reservation, but the table was waiting for us. Excellent service and food! Loved the ambiance and intimate dining room.
I love this place. Every time I'm there the experience is exceptional.
I think I may form an unhealthy addiction to the traditional rice.
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.
Thank you for the great review! We're glad you chose Shiraz Grille for your boyfriend's birthday! Please visit again soon - no need to wait for another birthday! :)
We have dined here many times over the years and have enjoyed every visit. Food is excellent, menu offers excellent variety, staff are courteous and attentive, establishment is clean and the decor is inviting.
Looking forward to our next visit and new menu items.
Thank you for taking the time to write this kind review! We are appreciative of your sharing your review with us and the Open Table community!
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.
We appreciate that you took the time to give this nice review! We are happy that you enjoyed the Persian Cuisine and had great service! Thank you for the feedback on the temperature! We will be more attentive to that!
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.
Too expensive not worth it they ran out of food and charged us for a substitute
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.
Simply the most amazing Persian food I have had a lot of Persian food in my life but this restaurant rates at the top.
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.
Delicious food; comfortable, quiet venue; friendly, attentive service. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner.
We love the food, the service, the cleanliness, the atmosphere - this is a great place! We'd be there every week if it were closer to home.
Birthday dinner celebration with friends. We were not rushed at all and could enjoy one another’s company. Wait staff attentive but not intrusive and good timing with courses. Food was very good. I will be back! Again!
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.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review and comment on your experience at Shiraz Grille! We hope to see you again soon!
Shiraz is one of my favorite restaurants. They never disappoint. The depth of flavor is just amazing! I always have a hard time deciding what to get because it’s all so good. I have a few favorites that I tend to rotate through. I can’t wait to go back again soon!
We hope you do come back again soon! Glad we are one of your favorites! Thank you so much for the kind review!
This was our third visit only because we live in Chicago. The food is top quality. We usually order a few different kabobs to share and the chicken fesejon. All of the meals are delicious. The waiters are very attentive. The décor is beautiful. Love this place!!!!
Amazing! Every dish was perfectly seasoned & beautifully prepared! Delicious!!!

We celebrated my parents' 61st wedding anniversary with dinner at Shiraz. Food was great - simple and very flavorful. Service was excellent. Like the light portion option on some of the dishes so we could take advantage of the great appetizers.
Warm inviting atmosphere. Wait staff was very helpful. Food was very tender and the seasoning was delicious. Will be back.
Thank you very much for the positive review. We're happy that you had a great experience here at Shiraz Grille!
