The food is always good and refreshing - exciting dishes that please the palate. The service is also consistently good. And the value is exceptional!
Very pleasant setting with great food and service.
Food was definitely not cooked by a Persian chef. Kabob wasn’t grilled it was cooked like a flank steak? Rice was dry. Olivieh wasn’t Olivieh…. Everything was off. Never returning!
Extremely courteous staff. Great service and food..
I can’t adequately describe how wonderful the food & service was. Each dish took me back to my youth. Thank you for the experience. Was the highlight of our visit. Do not hesitate to try this restaurant. It does not disappoint.
Lunch was excellent particularly the appetizers on a hot day. Wine selection was very good too.
There were not a lot of people in the restaurant so it was very quiet.
Our server went out of her way to make us comfortable.
It was a birthday lunch so we got some extras form the chef which was a bonus.
Miranda our server made excellent recommendations and had a great personality. Jose the bartender was great and made us drinks and chatted with us before we were sat. Reza the owner was doing laps around the place making sure all was well and people were happy. Will definitely come back :))
Great aromatic Iranian-inspired cocktails, well-seasoned and juicy meals, and excellent desserts. Persian stamp of approval. Only Persian restaurant in Manhattan I've liked so far, but certainly attracts all crowds seeking a Chelsea-esque night of dining.
We love this restaurant! They have a great outdoor space and the food, service, and location (a quiet side street) are perfect!
Lovely service, delicious food, great wine list!! Had a fantastic lunch with a dear friend - perfect spot for that. Will definitely be back for dinner!
Food was just terrible
Excellent meal, casually elegant setting, great service!
The food was very bland and everything left us wondering "that's it?"
Second time there in one month and the food is so fresh and good. Wonderful service.
As an Iranian, I can attest that Shiraz Kitchen offers the most delectable and delicious Persian cuisine in Manhattan. The chicken kabob is perfectly marinated. The long grain rice is fragrant and absolutely perfect. The lamb chops are tender and flavorful. There is an abundance of saffron in all of the dishes. The aubergine and yogurt is my favorite. The staff and owner Reza are very warm and welcoming. I felt at home. I can’t wait to bring my mother over next week.
Food is so delicious and the cocktails are great too! Definitely recommend
Excellent food and service
Really delicious Persian food. Wonderful service. Can't wait to visit again.
Very good food and excellent service, ambiance and wine list. Very clean too!
Wonderful new Chelsea restaurant! I'm so glad that I found Shiraz Kitchen on Open Table. It's in a great location - and the restaurant is simply lovely. Elegant but casual. My hummus, red snapper and coconut cake were all simply superb. The service was outstanding and the prices most reasonable for the quality, location and portion sizes. Downtown New Yorkers are going to love this place - I can't wait to go back!
Excellent Persian food in a lovely ambience whether outside or indoors (well decorated). Service was perfect.
Amazing persian food. The best kebab I have had in NYC and I’m iranian! Great appetizers and desserts. I just wish they had tahdig!
Very good food and excellent service! Recommended this restaurant by a friend who has been to their first location in Westchester and it did NOT disappoint. Bangin wine list too!
If you want to patronize a restaurant in which you will be treated with pleasantness, dignity, respect and not discriminated against don't go here.
WORST hospitality I have experienced at a restaurant in New York City. I made a reservation the day before and when I arrived with my party the manager informed me he did not have my reservation on file and I had to show him proof to be seated. He told me he was at capacity unless I could show him my reservation. I had to show him the reservation confirmation on my phone and eventually he seated us. I suppose I should have begged him and thanked the dear leader for allowing us to sit in his restaurant. 30 minutes later we were seated. 15 minutes after we were seated we saw another group walk in WITHOUT a reservation and were happily seated.
When our server arrived with food menus I asked her if she had a wine list I could look at. Shen then told me she WILL NOT PROVIDE ME WITH A WINE LIST and I CAN ONLY PURCHASE FOOD. Apparently the Shiraz Kitchen & WINE BAR doesn't want to sell wine OR they just refused to sell me and my friends wine. At first I thought she was joking since NEVER in my life has a restaurant NOT wanted to sell alcohol to an adult. Nope she was serious. We asked to speak with the manager and she told us she was the assistant manager. We asked her why we she would not serve us and she provided no reason, only that we can only purchase food at the Shiraz Kitchen & WINE BAR. We then proceeded to leave and as we were leaving her boss, the manager, approached us and said there was a misunderstanding and we can now purchase alcohol with our food. THANK YOU DEAR LEADER.
Now ONE HOUR after we were seated our first of two appetizers arrived. Then after asking several times the manager came back and took our entree orders. The staff continuously approached other customers and asked if everything was okay and not once were we asked if we needed anything else. They threw some food at our table
We celebrated our 10th anniversary with lunch at Shiraz Kitchen today. What a delightful experience. The space is beautifully designed, from the gorgeous bar area to the impeccably clean bathroom downstairs. The service was incredible, and the restaurant’s gracious owner, Reza, was onsite to oversee every detail of the customer experience.; it’s apparent that he truly cares. We immensely enjoyed the falafel salad and the mirza appetizers as well as the luscious Chilean sea bass. We look forward to returning to this gem soon!
The overall experience was wonderful. The food was all great, except for the rice, which was boring white rice. Service was amazing, prices just right, and the space was beautiful.
Great spot if you are looking for an incredible meal- the vibe was slightly older but it was such a hidden gem because of the menu/service. I would recommend sitting outside. This wouldn't be the place for a date but rather for a great dinner with your parents or in-laws!
Great experience. Superb food, caring service, attentive manager and owner. A welcome addition to the neighborhood!
On the coldest day of 2021 thus far my girlfriend and I decided to try outdoor dining here and I’m glad we did! It was a vip experience the entire time since we were the only ones silly enough to eat and drink outside however the heaters definitely made a difference and the food wow I can’t wait to go back for more and cocktails !
Excellent food, superb service. Heated outdoor dining. The fish was delicious
Delicious food, great service. Heaters outside. Fantastic!
This is a new restaurant and my first visit was fantastic. I had the cod and it was cooked perfectly and delicious.
Look, these are hard, even miserable times. How could a restaurant hope to adapt smoothly? So there were a couple of service glitches--who cares? They were corrected or adjusted, and most of the dinner went well. The food was abundant and delicious. We ate outside under a very comfy heat lamp. We REALLY hope they prosper...
What an amazing experience. First the staff is super welcoming and knowledgeable. Our waiter Iraqule did an amazing job. Food was great. I got the beet and goat cheese salad and loved it. Then with my friend we shared the lamb ribs and lamb shank. Oh My Allah, this was outstanding. For dessert we had the saffron ice-cream and coconut cake. What a great dinner. I will come back for sure. Rami Rabayah 917-485-8724
Excellent place. I wish I knew about it before. I highly recommend it. The food was delicious.
We were there 7/14/20.
Great service and really good food. Glad we finally have a decent Persian spot in the city!
Great service. We enjoyed our time. The cheese board, eggplant with yogurt, and the french fries were very delicious. The best espresso too. But we didn't care for the taste of the meat dishes.
Wow! Very delicious meal. My boyfriend and I were craving Persian food and found this gem on OpenTable. They are brand new (opened mid-October) although they do have a well-established location in Elmsford, NY. The service was great. We went with outdoor seating. Our table was placed a bit awkwardly, but this isn't really the restaurant's fault as there is limited space outside.
The appetizers here are AMAZING! We got the feta-stuffed dates and the falafel with flatbread and they were so delicious. The main dishes were great too - I got the eggplant and beef stew with rice and my boyfriend got one of the kebab's. We were so full and didn't have room for dessert, but they had a pretty extensive dessert list as well.
Big selection of wine, but not much selection for glasses (most of listed as bottles).
Overall, very good experience. We'll definitely be going back!
