We ordered an arugula salad and the Zafron Chicken entrée. Both were outstanding. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and arrived hot, not just warm. The ambience is great for conversation. The service was efficient but lacked warmth.

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.

Thank you for the feedback. Did you alert your server to the issue you had with your bread? I am sure we would have been happy to replace it for you had it been brought to our attention.

Savory flavored made-to-order Persian entrees were delivered promptly. The service was attentive.
Value 3 stars rated because the wine selection was limited and expensive. Moderately priced selections were unavailable.

Preliminary service a little slow, but then it was great. The food at Zafron can always be counted on ! We were with two people who had never been there, and they were both thrilled to find a new jewel! She only eats Salmon and said it was delicious!! The Shrimp are huge, and wonderfully seasoned and grilled. We always enjoy our dinners there and the ambiance is lovely!

Arugula salad and sea bass were excellent, however we were most excited about the rack of lamb which turned out to be just okay. Things were a little chaotic, but the wait staff delivered great service.
