We went to celebrate my birthday - me, husband, and three teen kids. This was our second visit. It is a really nice place for a special occasion. We had hummus, olives, the cheese plate and the eggplant with yogurt (Mast-o-Bademjoon) for appetizers. And then, everyone was very hungry, so we had lamb shank, grilled Cornish hen, two of the beef stews (dried lime adds a nice note of sour), and the ground beef kebab. Everything was perfect and flavorful. I had the Ghormeh Sabz, a stew with beef and cilantro and beans, but I also tried a little of the lamb shank and the Cornish hen and all were excellent. My husband had the Bademjoon stew and ate every bit. My 15 year old daughter downed her entire beef kebab. Although it is a wine focused restaurant, it was very hot outside, so we went for beer and happily they have a good selection of bottled beer (Leffe, Duvel, Stone IPA and some others). Definitely a good experience

Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their meal. The service was attentive yet not overbearing. Highlights were the lamb chop, chicken and beef kabobs, red snapper, specialty rice dishes, yogurt with scallions, stuffed dates, mirza, and the desserts (halvah with saffron ice cream, and Persian love cake with pomegranate sorbet).

Our server was a little too eager to take our order. She probably came to our table 4 times in the first 15 minutes while we were just trying to catch up with our friends and enjoy our cocktails. We hadn't even looked at our menus yet. I wish there had been a more thorough explanation of the food as apparently there were choices as to our side dishes. We weren't told that and therefore all of us just got a huge pile of rice with our entrees. The food was very good and I would definitely try there again. As an added extra, there was wonderful live music performing in the lounge.

The food and drinks at Shiraz are so wonderful! We started with one of their specialty cocktails-The fig in the fog-delicious! We shared the arugula date salad with blue cheese-always perfectly dressed with a light oil and vinegar dressing. I had the marinated baby lamb chops with the Shirin rice-perfectly cooked and seasoned beautifully. My husband had the chicken kabob-tender, marinated with a touch of citrus and of course perfectly seasoned. We each had a glass of their house Cabernet-a balanced and tasty wine. I had the Persian black tea with mint and the pistachio baklava, which was moist and delicate. My husband also had the baklava with pistachio gelato. It was a meal fit for royalty!
Don’t miss this wonderful restaurant-it’s very unique!

We love this restaurant. We have been going to it for years! Always a good meal, very friendly service and hospitable owner. The decor is updated, and is pleasurable to dine in. Since Covid there is an outdoor space with greenery and large umbrellas. The menu has variety, meat, chicken, lamb and fish which we have all tried thru the years and everything is always good!

The food at Shiraz is authentic and beautifully prepared. We started with some drinks-The fig in a fog cocktail for me and a lovely Cabernet for my husband. We split the arugula, blue cheese and fig salad to start our meal. We both ordered the lamb chips which were perfectly seasoned and cooked to order. I had one of the special rice dishes which was floored with orange peel, pistachios and almonds. I had the black tea with mint to accompany my very exotic dessert of saffron ice cream with excellent pistachio halvah. My husband had coffee with the apple tart served with cinnamon ice cream. We enjoyed our meal very much! Afterwards, we checked out their specialty grocery store. So many great spices and grains plus lots of interesting pickles and jams.
