I have been to this restaurant 2x, both on Friday nights. The food is great. This Friday, I had the lamb shank and it was heaven on a plate. They have a jazz band on Friday nights, and it's wonderful. The owner and staff are nice, and there's a Persian shop attached to the restaurant.
I love food and am an accomplished home cook. This is now one of my favorite restaurants in Westchester.
As far as ambience, in the time of Covid, we're eating in a parking lot underneath a tent!
This was my second time patronizing the venue within 3 weeks. Both times excellent!
Food was fantastic. Entertainment was so enjoyable. Talent was great. It was the most relaxing night we have had all summer.
I’ve passed this restaurant several times but this was my first dining experience. Everything was truly impeccable from the food, service and drinks. The fig cocktail was one of the best drinks I’ve had in a long time. The feta stuffed figs, falafel and eggplant with yogurt sauce was all divine apps. The lamb and chicken kebabs were also delicious. I can’t wait to come back and can’t recommend this place enough! They also have jazz outdoors on Friday nights that we’re looking forward to trying.
Hidden in plain sight is this gem of a restaurant in Elmsford, NY. Featuring Persian cuisine, Shiraz Restaurant & Wine Bar offers the tastiest lamb chops my wife and I have ever enjoyed. Combined with delicious humus, and glass of sauvignon blanc makes for a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. After dining here you will agree with the Michelin Guide that this is a truly outstanding restaurant.
The food was AMAZING. I am NOT a lamb eater but I really think that Shiraz may have changed that. It was amazing. The eggplant appetizer was delicious and I have to say that the service was outstanding. Shiraz has an elegant atmosphere. I would highly recommend it no matter what the occasion.
Absolutely I really nice place to eat. The food unbelievable delicious, the service was excellent. Nice, clean, well maintained place where you do have a confident to eat or even just hang out with your friends. I highly recommend it.
Amazing restaurant! They care about the details and the food is phenomenal
Definitely will be back! Amazing food, very friendly staff. Wonderful attention to detail: They brought a little pastry with candle for my sister’s birthday.
Def five stars. Please recommend this well deserving restaurant.
Great service and wonderful food
Incredible food and wonderful service. Pre-fixe lunch was delicious and in very generous portions.
Web site indicated wine by the glass was $8 but when we were brought the drinks menu it showed prices beginning at $10. When I asked about this they very kindly said we would only be charged the $8 for any wine by the glass we chose. Generous portions.
Love this place . Great food . Maintaining guidelines for safe health
Covid inspired outdoor dining. Fresh and tasty. Attentive service.
Ate outside. Staff very friendly and food excellent. Enjoyed the experience. Will go back.
We got the lamb shank and hummus, and the meat was very tender! The hummus was also really great. Good service, and we are really glad we stopped by on the way back to NYC
We are so happy to see Shiraz open again. We have been dining here for several years since Shiraz opened. You are treated graciously like family from the moment you enter the restaurant. Food is wonderful and tasty.
We enjoyed the lamb chops and lamb shank entrees.
Wide variety of very tasty appetizer salads available.
Great wine list.
Glad they have reopened !
Although hummus doesn’t seem quite as good as it used to be
We really enjoyed our delicious dinner. The green salad was great. The lamb chops were perfect. Hummus was delicious and chicken kabobs were excellent. The service was attentive, very friendly. I enjoyed the dessert they sent for my birthday. I can’t wait to go back again when we can eat inside this beautiful restaurant. Thanks for making my birthday celebration perfect .
This is a hidden gem! We moved to the area about a year ago and always wanted to try this place. Then COVID happened and we didn’t get a chance. When it was finally open we decided to not cook one night since that’s all we have been doing and wanted to treat ourselves. From the food to the staff everything was top notch! Will definitely come back!! Thank you!
Nice lunch, good food.
What a special treat! This was our first opportunity to eat out as a family since the pandemic began. Thankfully, Shiraz set up tables in the back parking lot and we enjoyed the best meal we've had in a long time.
Our appetizers included delicious dolmeh, heavenly hummus, and a colorful mixed green salad - all salads should be as fresh and as green as this! The salmon, snapper, lamb shank, & chicken kabob with asparagus were flavorful, cooked perfectly, and savored by those who were lucky enough to order it. The shirin rice with pistachio, almond, & orange zest was a particular hit--delectable!
Shiraz Kitchen pays attention to details -- from pouring our wine to a complimentary birthday surprise dessert complete with candle! In addition, they were kind enough to open their store so we could purchase some goodies. The store happens to be just next door at the back of their Shiraz Wine Bar. Upon entering this doorway before going outside, we noticed some of their mediterranean/mid-Eastern products. Just writing this about the olives, almonds, Turkish figs, and saffron, makes my mouth water.
Definitely put Shiraz Kitchen on your "go-to" list - I look forward to sitting in the Shiraz Wine Bar to sample some of their tastings, once indoor dining is allowed again.
Warm and gracious staff food is yummy and nicely presented. The home made salads and hot sauce are all delicious. We enjoyed the tasty lamb chops that were terrific.
Classy place with good food. Would definitely go there again!
Excellent food, good service, reasonable cost
Outstanding service, delicious Kebabs with appropriate sides, good collection of wine and beautiful jazz band on Friday nights. Must visit !
This is a wonderful restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. The staff is very helpful and considerate. Every dish is delectable. I've been going there for a couple of years.
Staff was rather impolite. Forgot drink orders. Charged us for 3 additional drinks and refunded us without appology. The waiter stopped us on way out and trying to argue we had the drinks and are trying not to pay. We actually had paid those drinks at the bar. Main course was being cleared off while some of us were still eating but then we waited a long time for the bill.
One of our favorite restaurants. Food is consistently delicious. Great wine list. Now that the wine bar has opened, it is nosier at the front of the restaurant. Ask to be seated in the back part of the restaurant if you want to have conversation over dinner.
We sat in the back room so it was super quiet but we almost felt forgotten. The place was packed and the staff was spread thin so the long waits between staff checking on us made sense. The food, however, was excellent!
The food was wonderful and the ambience, with the jazz band in the bar, was extremely pleasant. The service, however was poor. They need more, and better trained, staff.
This restaurant keeps getting better and better. The food choices keep increasing and the wine menu is exceptional. The servers are cordial and accommodating. The owner, Reza, is always around checking and making sure everything is perfect and it shows. It's definitely one of our favorite restaurants.
Love the food and the entire place. They’ll take care of you
This restaurant is, quite simply, a rare find. The food was a discovery of vivid new tastes, all at great value. The hosts were gracious,, personal and solicitous, explaining whatever we asked. Service was speedy and courteous. We are definitely going back.
Slightly formal atmosphere with excellent persian food.
Spectacular as always. Amazing, attentive (but not rushed) service. The food is consistently outstanding.
Food was really good. Had the lamb shank. Great French Rhone wine - reasonable price. Restaurant is a little noisy and a little crowded seating wise but the Host was a very nice, soft spoken man. Felt welcome and comfortable - a definite keeper and return visit.
Pleasant atmosphere, cordial service. Food was good but prices seemed a bit high for what you got. Favorite dish was the appetizer of spinach with yogurt.
Very interesting menu and well-meaning attentive staff. There are some really amazing choices on the menu; interesting and fresh food. Look at menu before you go as there are many choices to make.
