This was our first time dining at Shiraz. What a gem! The ambiance was beautiful and sophisticated - truly lovely. Everyone was friendly, courteous and some of the best front of the house staff I’ve ever experienced. We requested a table in the main dining room and they were very careful to seat us where we wanted to be. The food was delicious: I had the couscous salad and the Orange Saffron chicken with their traditional wedding rice made with Candied orange curls, barberries, and sauteed julienned carrots, with slivered almonds & Persian pistachios, cooked with Saffron rice - so good. My husband had the braised lamb shank, a sizable portion, made with a wonderful and interesting tomato sauce with braised carrots and peas. We finished dinner with a shared serving of baklava, also very good. The entire dinner was memorable and we are looking forward to our next visit to experience more of their wonderful food.

I have been very pleased with Shiraz in two past visits... and would have easily given a 5 star performance. This time was disappointing. Rice was barely warm... nothing really hot. The food has been very enjoyable in the past. Not sure what has happened...

This is our second time eating at Shiraz, the first time was about 8 years ago and we were just blown away by how good it was. We came back, everything looked the same and well kept and the food was equally as amazing. It is very quiet and cozy; just a nice, relaxing delicious meal.

Shiraz has been our go-to restaurant for some time. The Persian cuisine is both special and comfort food at the same time. The wait staff will help novices but are not intrusive. Quality and value for the meal is high and the wine list is quite good for a small restaurant. There is a lot to like about Persian food and Shiraz is a great place to experience it.

Our first experience with Iranian food and we were so impressed. The server was knowledgeable and very helpful. Very nice ambiance and wine list too. We had an appetizer that was nice and we each had a Khoresh style dish. Mine was an Orange Saffron Chicken that was fabulous with just a touch of heat to the sauce. My husand's was a Pomegranate Chicken with crushed walnuts and excellent as well. Both were served with Persian rice and fresh vegetables.

The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and we will definitely be going back!

My wife and I love this place. We always order the pomegranate chicken, which is amazing. I also ordered the vegetarian/eggplant dish, which was delicious as well. If you're looking for something a little different with a great selection of wine/beers, then check out Shiraz. You'll be glad you did.

This off-the-beaten-path restaurant is one of Grand Rapids' true gems--especially if you like Persian cuisine. You can always tell how authentic a restaurant is when it is patronized by ethnic people who are enjoying their "native" dishes. The owner was not only present, but attentive, making sure his guests were being properly served. The wait staff was friendly and efficient, and the cuisine was absolutely wonderful. Combine that with the restaurant's relaxed yet elegant atmosphere, and you have all the makings for a truly memorable dining experience.

Very good food; though the vegetarian eggplant dish had very little eggplant! The side of rice was really the main dish. Loved what little eggplant there was.

Service was great, everything delivered on time; but there was only one other table at the time, anyway.

The Persian tea tasted like regular tea, though it took 15 minutes to prepare. My husband had a chicken dish, he enjoyed it.

The ambiance was elegant and charming; wish we could've stayed for the belly dancers!

Shiraz has been one of our favorite restaurants for several years. The food is incredibly flavorful and they have a good wine list. Prices are about the same as a higher-end chain restaurant but Shiraz is so much nicer. If you like Indian or Mediterranean cuisine, this will be a wonderful change-up for you. Wedding rice is a delicious upgrade. The desserts menu is not extensive but authentic. Baklava is delicious. The Persian Ice Cream is homemade, light and fantastic! Almost everything is gluten free by nature of the cuisine. Many veggie dishes as well. We take our friends here whenever we get the chance.

Another outstanding Sunday lunch with friends. The food selection in the buffet is diverse and so delicious, and the price ($20) simply can't be beat. There is always a nice vibe in the place and the owner is so gracious when he sees us. Can't recommend this place highly enough for the authentic food, relaxing atmosphere, and great value.
