Zafron's food is traditional Persian dishes that are flavorful, nicely done and presented. The main dining room's ambience is good and is not noisy. Service this evening was slow and indifferent.

As always, the food and service were outstanding. It was a Wednesday evening, and very quiet; we were treated like royalty. Plenty of food; two of us took home about half. Chocolate bombe dessert was fantastic in taste and texture. Thanks for another lovely evening!

We ordered appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts - everything was excellent. The chicken with lime marinade was perfectly grilled and juicy. Two people had the lamb and though it delicious. Kale salad with parm cheese and pears - outstanding with the pomegranate dressing, a delicious combination of flavors.

Great food, great service. However, portions are too small for the price. Five pieces of lamb kebab (which was amazing) for $18.00. Will give up the free cheese appetizer for two more pieces. Overall great place.

Due to the continued shortage of staffing, the service wasn't good. Looked like one server for 6 tables outside. There were also a lot of mosquitoes at the table due to lots of standing water around us.

Zafron is our go-to Persian restaurant and we have never been disappointed! We have tried a number of dishes and have enjoyed them all. On our last visit we brought friends that loved the restaurant too! If you like Persian food and have not been to Zafron or have thought about trying Persian cuisine for the first time, you owe yourself a visit to Zafron!

My company is located near this restaurant and out entire team loves this place. I eat here probably 6 times per month during lunch. The Fire Roasted Salmon is beyond fabulous, along with their chopped salad, and everything else. The owners and waiters are very nice, solicitous, friendly - they know what I order and almost bring it without asking.
Seating is good for small groups of 2-4 or tables for 6 and other tables for as many as you like. Just call ahead. I've see groups of up to 20 in the side room, which is very light and airy.
Can't say enough. GREAT food. Don't miss the salmon.

We were disappointed when our server told us (3 of us) that we could not order a dinner salad with a protein added. We didn't want the rice. He suggested we split the rice and add a salad to a main dish. Which was more expensive, and also added a split charge of $3. Then we saw that other tables seemed to have exactly what we tried to order - a salad with chicken or salad on top. My chicken was also very dry and tough. This was my first and last visit to this restaurant. 4 of the 5 of us will not return.

The Persian food was delicious, especially the saffron chicken and koobideh. Their Sabze plate and bread they give you before dinner was meh - needed many more herbs and the bread was a little over toasted , so you couldn’t roll up the contents in the bread -when I tried it just cracked and crumbled in my plate. Overall very good dinner though.
