We were celebrating a high school reunion. The wine room is perfect for parties up to 20 people.
The food was good and the service was very attentive to us even though it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was busy. Everyone enjoyed the evening and thought it was the perfect place to get together.

Zafrons is one of our go to restaurants; we are sure the food will be delicious! I did note that the platter that we were given with olives, cheese, nuts and herbs prior to the meal was much smaller than it has been in the past.

There are plenty of Persian restaurants in Sandy Springs, but Zafron is becoming my favorite. The decor is lovely, it's not noisy, and the service is outstanding. And the food! I'm on a gluten-free diet and I have a wide range of choices. My only issue is that parking is kind of tight. When the new performing arts center opens, I suspect Zafron will become a favorite for pre- and post-event dining.

This was our 2nd visit and a 1st for our friend. We thoroughly enjoyed the house appetizer (bread, olives, feta cheese, radishes, cucumber, mint and tarragon leaves).

We each had a different entree: 1) Zafron Chicken with Orange Zest Pistachio & Almond rice 2) Tenderloin Kabob and 3) rack of lamb. Each dish was delicious and cooked to perfection.

Our waiter, Will, was very attentive, informative, and gave a great recommendation for our wine.

To top it off, we each had a different dessert, each of us wishing for more.

Zafron is great neighborhood Persian restaurant. Food is fresh and well prepared with authentic ingredients and appropriate portions. Bread is freshly baked on site and generously refilled. The service staff is genuinely friendly. The wine list is fairly narrow. We missed the desserts since we were all too full but they look amazing. For us, this will become a regular stop.

This restaurant not only gives their customers great food and service; but, it is so quiet, then the party can have a decent conversation.

Service was good and staff was friendly. Food was good, even though meat for some dishes was a bit too cold. Ambiance was nice, nothing extraordinary though.
Overall not the best experience, due to the mess up that happened with our reservation that was cancelled and then reinstated (due to a birthday party before us).

Took the family out for lunch. Loved the food. Everything was made to order and cooked to perfection. The Basmati rice was fantastic and the chicken and lamb kebabs we're outstanding However the high point of the meal were the desserts. We ordered a chocolate mousse and a apricot flan. The mousse was enclosed in a beehive of chocolate and the apricot was layered onto a cake base so we were able to cut both of them in half and and share. Service was excellent and a platter of herbs and olives together with lavosh bread was brought to the table immediately. We also a Hummus appetizer which was enough for four people plus we took some home. All in all it was a very pleasant out of the ordinary dining experience and one which we recommend to all who love good food, service and a ambience.

We wanted a relaxed but delicious experience on a Friday night, without the long wait for a table. Zafron fit the bill. It was excellent food, great service, comfortable atmosphere that was quiet enough for conversation. Each of us ordered something different, chicken barg, salmon and veggie kabob, and we shared, family style. It was more than enough food for 3 of us; we even took some home. We loved our food and the whole experience and will definitely return.

I’ve eaten here several times and been pleased but this was the first Saturday night experience. It was crowded and there seemed to be a big party/private room requiring a lot of service. Our server did not write down our order and completely missed the appetizer we ordered. For entrees, both my husband and I ordered meat dishes at medium rare temperature. They were closer to well done but we could not locate our server to discuss. Not sure if the server put the order in wrong or it was a kitchen error. About halfway through our meal we were both out of drinks and water, and again, our server was nowhere in sight. It’s difficult to enjoy a meal with nothing to drink and this was at least 10 minutes. We flagged down someone else who brought us water in wine glasses because they ran out of water glasses. Clearly an off night for them, which is too bad. I’m too afraid to recommend it due to the inconsistency. Note: the server brought the appetizer out as we were almost finished the entrees and made sure to tell us it was complimentary. They tried but if the server is working too many tables than someone else needs to make sure the customers have everything they need. The food is always nice but this experience was disappointing
