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!

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!

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.

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.

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 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.
