This restaurant has become one of our favorites. Whenever we meet with friends, this is the place we take them to. Our family goes here all the time and we can't get enough of the various foods. Every one a gem.

We’ve eaten there several times before. The food has been consistently good. I highly recommend Shiraz to anyone who hasn’t tried dinning there yet.

As always excellent, this time I had the lamb shank. It was tender and loaded with flavor. My husband enjoyed the whole branzino with asparagus. It was a very busy night, clearly the word is out what a fine restaurant it is! Great wine selection too

It was a bizarre experience. When the owner finally seated us, we were not given menus and the constant trying to get someone to give them to us was absurd. No one ever came over to the table to welcome us, talk to us ever. Had to then ask constantly to order food. There is absolutely no service here. One woman takes all the orders, there are 2 bus boys, and one water girl who was the best even though she spoke very little English. The owner ran around the room but really did nothing to help anyone. The food was so bland and dry. The falafels were burned hockey pucks. The rice was so tasteless and dry. Everything needed seasoning or a sauce. Very disappointing. Never again.

Exquisite, stylish, yet low key fine dining establishment in Elmsford featuring authentic Persian cuisine and an impressive wine list. If you go do not miss the lamb chops or humus. A comfortable adjacent wine bar very inviting for happy hour or a pre-dinner cocktail. Attentive, unobtrusive service. And if you're a dessert person the baklava, and saffron ice cream are a great way to end a delicious culinary experience!

They gave the round table to some people that walked in off the streets & put my party of 6 at a rectangular table. They switched us to another round table but it was smaller & squished in. Very loud. Food ok, not as good as last time.

Shiraz is getting better with every visit. The ambiance is welcoming, engaged and respectful staff referent that Persian wherewithal, and the food is just exceptional to every morsel.

We visited in June only so my expectation was that my experience will be okay. However, Kabab Sultani was soft and succulent, both land and chicken. Lamb Shanks remain retain their tenderness and just right spice. Koobideh are outstanding and tender yet aromatic as we’re the lamb chops.

The new management and the new contemporary decor has brought Shiraz back to the front and center of Westchester restaurant enabled by a marvelous and growing recipes.

Needless to say we will be back again en mass as a family again.

Fantastic food and extremely attentive service. This was our first time at Shiraz Kitchen and we are most definitely coming back. We had the "Labneh" and the "Mirza Ghasemi" for appetizers, the "Shirazi Salad" and the "King Kabob for two". Plenty of food for two people and everything was delicious!

We started with the dates stuffed with feta and walnuts. Amazing! Then we had the Lamb Chop, Beef, and Chicken kabobs with the Zereshk and Shirin rice. Flavors were out of this world! Saffron ice cream for dessert was to die for! This is the first of many visits we will make to Shiraz!

We went for my birthday. I had been eyeing this restaurant for ages, but my birthday celebration seemed like the right time. I came with my husband and 3 teen kids. The waitress was really nice and helpful, and explained the food choices. We had a fried eggplant and yogurt dish, picked vegetables, the herb plate and stuffed dates for appetizers. They were all good. For entrees we had the lamb shank, two people ordered kebobs, my youngest had fries and the chicken soup, and I had the stew with eggplant, split yellow peas, beef and something else in it. The spices were interesting and different from other middle eastern or Indian food. I could taste cardamom and cumin. Very tasty. We all agreed that we want to come back.

As on previous visits, Reza is attentive and knowledgeable. Service is efficient. I am constantly amazed at the breadth of the wine list with some real gems. But kitchen is king (it queen!) here - the food always excels!

The food and service is excellent. Excellent choices that range from vegetarian to non-vegetarian. Only suggestion would be to have some wine choices in the $35 or $38 per bottle range.

Service was very attentive and helpful from start to finish. We haven’t been there in a few years and were impressed with the updated decor and menu. Even though we decided to forego dessert, our waiter insisted we try the baklava which was excellent.

Staff friendly, meat was tasty. Rice dishes were supposed to be saffron basmati. They were both very dry and lacking in flavor.
Overall just an average lunch.

Food was good except for sea bass which tasted fishy and oily. I had to return dish and got a vegetable stew which was adequate. Chicken kebabs were good. Don’t order wine-smallest serving we ever had in restaurant. Spoke to manager who insisted it was correct and gave smaller glass to pour into to make look like more, but didn’t work. Table in back of us also complained for same reason. Unlike us, they were compensated with an extra glass of wine. Waitress was exceptionally nice. Would not recommend or return to this restaurant!

This was a very nice restaurant in every way. The food, service, and ambiance were wonderful. The Prix Fixe lunch was a great value, considering the excellence of the food. If you want Persian food, I heartly recommend this restaurant.
