The server was great - respectful- helpful - made suggestions and even gave us a sampler dessert for the holiday meals being offered (along with a take home menu). Love this place - easy to conduct a business lunch (or dinner). Great food, portions, service

Really appreciated the effort for safe COVID conscious dining indoors. Social distance seating, plexiglass dividers no touch menus. Dani packet of flatware. Came for late lunch. Food was excellent.

Our local favorite / local gem. Zafron has done a nice job with curbside pickup and inside dining (plexiglass and booth spacing). Be sure to make reservations.

Our first night out this year and Zafron was our first stop! It was and remains our favorite Persian restaurant. They have adapted to covid while keeping the decor, ambiance, and service we like. We look forward to our next visit!

This was our first time at Zafron. We went for a Father's Day celebration. From the moment we walked in we were pleasantly greeted, immediately seated, immediately waited on.

We started with the baked goat milk feta cheese appetizer. Wow! It's so delicious. Followed by the Soltan's Feast kabobs for me and my husband had the tenderloin kabob. Outstanding and cooked to perfection. The saffron rice was delicious. We did get a small side dish of the cucumber in yogurt to use as a dipping sauce. And of course we had the warm pita bread with the meal. Portions are large. Took half of mine home and had it for lunch the next day. This is a must-go-to restaurant.

We had an enjoyable time with our friends at Zafron. The food was delicious (my favorite is the mousse au chocolat!!) and the staff was very friendly. Zafron is one of our top three restaurants!

Great food and good experience overall. Service could have been better. Had to ask for more bread multiple times. Had to follow up to get my boxed take home meal. Have dined here many times. Service definitely not up to standards we have experienced in the past.

Everything was great and the food and service were “memorably” good. We enjoyed the various kebabs, Chicken Zafron, red pepper hummus, and flavored rices.

Great vibe & service! Food was delicious—especially lamb kabobs, and smoked eggplant appetizer. Exposed some teenagers to new food they wouldn’t have experienced until they went away to college. Would’ve been nice if server had offered birthday dessert, as it was stated on the reservation—celebrating my son’s 18th with friends. Overall good time was had...glad we had area seated to ourselves—beautiful ambiance.
