We loved it until we had to wait forever for the check. It brought down the rating from 5 to 4 stars. More attentive service would have meant a perfect rating!

Zafron just built out a little patio and it’s very nice to dine on. The food , as always was delicious and service just right, pleasant and not obtrusive. If you are getting out again and haven’t been to Zafron, it’s well worth it.

Salad with added protein (salmon, chicken, etc.) was wonderful.

Service was a little slow due to shortage of servers.

This is the time we dined in at Zaffron in over a year ( we have gotten taken many times during the pandemic).
The Chilean Sea Bass was fantastic and so was the fire roasted salmon!
We split a pear Gorgonzola salad and the half size was a big portion.
The server Ali overheard me saying I was full but would like to try the white chocolate raspberry mousse desert next time.
He then gave us one on the house to take home!
Great service and a lovely surprise to cap off a wonderful evening!

We didn’t have a good experience. We had to keep telling the Waitress to keep getting us utensils and things that should already be on our table. The food quality was poor. Also the service was so slow.

Food was delicious except for the lamb shank that was tasteless. Everybody else's food was beautifully seasoned but my lamb shank unfortunately, had no flavor. When the waitress asked how our food was, I commented on that but she didn't offer anything other than, that's weird since it's a favorite dish. Service was o.k. The waitress was nice but, the extra bread we asked for with the appetizers, came only after asking again and by then, the main dishes were served.

I've been eating at Zafron since they opened. This was the first time back for me since COVID. Since then I have radically changed my diet, but was looking forward to the sea bass I always order. I usually split it and take 1/2 home. The fish portion was greatly reduced from the size I am used to. I think the price was also reduced, tho. Sadly, I also no longer eat rice and I truly miss the fava dill rice I always used to eat. I substituted the kale salad which used to be chopped up and is now full sized leaves stems and all. I do not enjoy the giant metal trays they use to serve the food. I usually remembered to request china, but forgot this time. I don't mean to give the restaurant a bad review at all. We had a wonderful time with friends we haven't been with for a year. The fish was delicious! Love the yogurt sauce and the relish plate. Thanks for being there, Zafron. OT did not qualify this for points. I don't know why.

Great food, great service, great company. The appetizer, cooked eggplants with tomatoes (cannot remember the name of the dish), was amazing. The grilled lamb, medium rare was just perfection, too bad the portion was too small but enjoyed every bit. The shirazi salad that on previous visits came straight from the refrigerator was chopped to perfection and fresh.
Great lunch, will be back

My family was all satisfied with zafron's food and atmosphere service, even parking spaces. Sea bass and rack of lamb(medium) was perfect, we loved it. I'm not sure if it's the manager or the restaurant's boss, but when I asked him about the tea drink that my family was satisfied with, he kindly brought it and told me where to buy it. I was able to finish the kindness pleasantly until the end of the meal. Thank you.
