Needed a quiet restaurant to discuss a job prospect. Taheri’s filled the bill perfectly. Appealing menu with food fresh and excellently prepared.
It’s hard to figure out Taheri. The room has no ambiance - it is long and narrow and in an office building. However, when we arrived for our reservation, the place was packed. The food is Mediterranean, but there is nothing special about it. The dishes are done nicely and taste good, but are unmemorable. The prices are very reasonable. Taheri has been there for 20 years, so they must be doing something right. It was okay, but it just didn’t make me want to return.
Wait person Heidi was terrific. The wait staff there are all good. We are semi regulars and really like Velma also. Beef shish kabob was very tender. So much so we really didn't have too much of a problem when the meat was served medium well to well when we asked for medium rare. We had a table for ten so understood the problem with getting everything exact for everyone. This is unusualk for Taheri's. We love their kabobs. Pizza was wonderful as was the ravioli. Salads also very tasty. All in all a nice neighborhood place to relax and enjoy a meal. We'll be back.
Nice quiet and friendly. Always has good food. This is a great place to relax and talk
The server and staff were very considerate and accommodating. After the table was having some issues rocking, they moved us to another. The appetizer was well portioned. My wife enjoyed her food. When I ordered my food I asked for it medium, it came well done. The meat was still juicy and tasted well, so I didn’t ask for it to be fixed.
Really nice place the food the service was great, they have parking. Good place for family dinner
I was glad to see the place quite busy for a Saturday night. We have gotten to rely on prompt service here and really had it this time, although the food is the reason we keep coming back.
Ideal evening with friends. Great food, excellent service and we could hear each other talking. Definitely get dessert!
Love this home away from home! Great food, great wine selection and they make you feel like part of the family!
This place is a gem. Order the Mediterranean Prawns.
We find Taheri's to be a comfortable place with many very good menu choices and we dine there often. We particularly enjoy the soups, salads and vegetable lasagna. We can always count on great service from Velma. She is always friendly, professional and accommodating.
A very pleasant location with a large menu of great Mediterranean and Italian dishes.
While this restaurant is a little out of the way, it is very nice inside, great service and very good food. The wine and beer list was also good. The only down point is that the portions were so big that we could not have an appetizer or dessert. We loved the complimentary rosemary bread- very delicious.
We made reservations for 12 to celebrate my mother’s birthday. Although the restaurant is not very large, we were accommodated comfortably. The service and attention were excellent and personal. The owner/stAff we’re ready for our party when we arrived and even come out to direct us to s parking place so my 79 year old mother wouldn’t have to walk far. The food was delicious. My mother was served a complimentary full size dessert to celebrate her special day.ill be going back to Taheri’s to try the lunch menu.
Aways a great meal!!!
We had a wonderful waitress who made some great recommendations. Everything tasted really good.
It was a delightful experience with a friend whom I have not seen for a month.
They graciously allowed us to sit and chat even after we finished our dinner.
Our dinner was very tasty. Taheri is known among us to be very consistent
Our waiter was very good, and also remembered our names and continued to address us by name. Both of us commented that. My name is not an easy one to remember.
One of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. The lamb chops were exquisitely prepared and were succulent and tender. The appetizer of grilled eggplant was delicious with house made tomato sauce. Desert was a Mediterranean infused chocolate torte and was amazingly delicious. The server we had was gracious, made excellent recommendations, and accommodated our every request. All in all I would happily dine here again!
The total experience dining was extremely pleasant. This is a small, out of the way, restaurant that has a calming atmosphere and excellent food. The food was only outshone by the attentiveness of our server. We look forward to going there again.
I've now eaten here twice in two weeks. The first time everything was very good. The second time the fish was a little too old. The service was great on both occasions.
They have indoor dinning along with an outdoor tented area.
Since it is close to the Pleasant Hill Bart, it makes for easy after work dinning.
lovely food - we chose to sit outside as it was a warm night but inside was a bit cold. Was on the street so a bit exposed, but enjoyable none-the-less.
Awesome place with great food! Will go back again.
This place always pleases. It is fairly small, and not crowded on Saturday evenings, when we usually go. Mediterranean Prawns is our favorite, so we probably miss ordering other good dishes. Parking is easy, but not obvious because you park in the garage shared by the hotel next door and other businesses.
Great food, excellent service, reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Taheri's
Food was excellent. I wish we had more time to fully enjoy it.
This was a small, quaint family-like establishment. The food was like at someone's house and the staff were attentive and present.
We have been to Taheri's many times, and it always satisfies. Not much business on Saturdays, and you can usually get in and out easily within an hour. Parking is confusing the first time because you have to go in the parking garage that is just behind the restaurant. At least on weekends, there is no charge. I don't know if Taheri's validates at other times.
Excellent diversity and high quality Mediterranean inspired dishes. Loved the spanokopita appetizer and the crab pasta was excellent with large portion of crab meat. Fresh fish options change daily.
Excellent freshly made food at an amazing value and superb service.
This is such a great little gem of a restaurant in an office building neighborhood. We were lucky enough to stumble upon this for a Business lunch and we were so glad we did. The staff was incredibly friendly and nice, and the food was just delicious. I imagine they have other things on the menu but I can never not have the halibut now. It's perfectly cooked and amazingly fresh.
Boss's birthday lunch
Everything on the menu has been great.
My salmon was excellent, but my friend's lobster was tough. A good neighborhood restaurant. Love the salmon fettuccine for takeout.
Excellent service and food, we will be back. We were a party of six and we were provided spectacular service, excellent food.
Always a good meal at Taheri's. I highly recommend it.
We used to go to Taheri's regularly but for some reason haven't been there for several years. This is a nice, quiet, Mediterranean restaurant right next to Embassy Suites, Walnut Creek. Parking is free/validated in a garage. We returned last Saturday for a family dinner. The menu hasn't changed a bit - still amazing - pastas, kabobs, fresh fish, great salads, and excellent desserts. We tried a lot - The fettuccine with lobster was exceptional, Shish Ka Bob, Fresh salmon, raviolis, all good. Great Caesar salad. They had a chocolate/chocolate chip gelato that was paired with a scoop of vanilla that topped the evening off perfectly. Good espresso too. We missed you, Taheri, but will be back soon.
I was traveling for work -- staying in the 'burbs instead of my usual downtown SF, so was excited to find a nice Mediterranean restaurant within walking distance of my hotel. So disappointing. The chicken was dry and overcooked, seasoning was just so-so. There were very few people in this office park restaurant, so I have to think that they do a better job at lunchtime -- and draw a bigger crowd. I'd maybe try it again for lunch, but never for dinner.
This place hasn't changed in years; thank goodness! Always a pleasure to dine at Taheri's. The food is excellent, the staff are quick and friendly and we've never had a bad experience. They validate parking and are right next to a parking garage - never a worry about where to park. They do take reservations - be sure to make one if you plan to go Friday or Saturday night, or on a holiday, as the seating is limited. We've never been turned away, even when they are quite busy! Love this restaurant. A must try.
Always a good meal and friendly atmosphere at Taheri's. Dependable, tasty, well prepared food, and great service. We go quite often. Recommended to anyone.
