The food and drinks at Shiraz are so wonderful! We started with one of their specialty cocktails-The fig in the fog-delicious! We shared the arugula date salad with blue cheese-always perfectly dressed with a light oil and vinegar dressing. I had the marinated baby lamb chops with the Shirin rice-perfectly cooked and seasoned beautifully. My husband had the chicken kabob-tender, marinated with a touch of citrus and of course perfectly seasoned. We each had a glass of their house Cabernet-a balanced and tasty wine. I had the Persian black tea with mint and the pistachio baklava, which was moist and delicate. My husband also had the baklava with pistachio gelato. It was a meal fit for royalty!
Don’t miss this wonderful restaurant-it’s very unique!

We love this restaurant. We have been going to it for years! Always a good meal, very friendly service and hospitable owner. The decor is updated, and is pleasurable to dine in. Since Covid there is an outdoor space with greenery and large umbrellas. The menu has variety, meat, chicken, lamb and fish which we have all tried thru the years and everything is always good!

Delicious food with a good variety of Persian specialties. Pistachio gelato was one of the best ice creams I’ve ever tasted, including in Italy and nyc. Waitstaff friendly. Will return.

Been several years (partially because of the pandemic), but Shiraz is as good as ever. Big portions, tasty food, and reasonable prices. Wine list is outstanding, loaded with quality vineyards.

The food at Shiraz is authentic and beautifully prepared. We started with some drinks-The fig in a fog cocktail for me and a lovely Cabernet for my husband. We split the arugula, blue cheese and fig salad to start our meal. We both ordered the lamb chips which were perfectly seasoned and cooked to order. I had one of the special rice dishes which was floored with orange peel, pistachios and almonds. I had the black tea with mint to accompany my very exotic dessert of saffron ice cream with excellent pistachio halvah. My husband had coffee with the apple tart served with cinnamon ice cream. We enjoyed our meal very much! Afterwards, we checked out their specialty grocery store. So many great spices and grains plus lots of interesting pickles and jams.

Overall a very nice experiance. The food was good, as I expected. Nothing really stood out in taste, quantity, or quality. I did leave full and satisfied though. The staff was warm and friendly and the place is tastefully decorated. The quiet and relaxed ambiance on a Friday evening at 5:30 was a nice touch. I would recommend going and giving the place a try.
