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.

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.

Thank you for taking a moment to post about your experience at Shiraz! Just a little tidbit about our wedding rice - also known in Iran as "Shirin (sweet) Polo (rice)," - It is a very special rice, traditionally used for Iranian weddings (so as to have a sweet life), or special events. We here at Shiraz like to think that every meal is a special event - and so felt it especially appropriate to put on our menu :)

Excellent food and service, quiet and homey atmosphere. It was not very busy on a Tuesday night. Service was fast and helpful. We chose it because we had visited before for an anniversary (it was our 25th this time). White tablecloth service for a casual price.
