First time visit with friends. Place was crowded, was a little hard to get served, but the manager also pitched in and was very friendly and helpful. We all had different items (chicken, fish, lamb) and a bottle of death Pinot - really good food and enjoyed dinner. The portions are huge!

This was a business dinner for 6, with one native Iranian in the group; none of us had been to the restaurant. Parking was easy. We were immediately seated (we had a reservation). We ordered a selection of appetizers and entrees, all arranged by our Iranina colleague with the owner. I especially liked the rice that was cooked crisp on... More

This was my second visit ti Shalizaar. And like my first one, it was very good! We always start with some dolme that are good but not as good as Lebanese one. We had Gheymeh Bademjan which was good, and Zereshk Polo that is unbelievable! The rice is delicious and the chicken is the most tender and juicy chicken you'll... More

this restaurant not only has fantastic kababs, but what's most impressive is the consistency of their food. all their kababs are phenomenal. a definite must-have is the mast-o-moosir (yogurt infused shalots) with their freshly baked bread. yum!!!

Despite the good food, I will never go back to this restaurant because of one really bad experience. It took them 3 time to give me what I exactly ordered.

First off.....everything said so far is correct: 1) outstanding service 2) lovely decor 3) a bit pricey ($50 for two for lunch) 4) nice veggie basket to start (one radish, basket of greens including mint), feta cheese and nuts (free) 5) very large quantities (surprised by the comment that the quantities were not large; I over ordered because I thought...

I took my girlfriend out on a date here. The staff was wonderful, and it's somewhat of a more expensive restaurant, so being your wallet. I was starving so I when my order came and it wasn't as big as I'd like it to be for that price I naturally got a bit down. But the food was good just,... More

We chose Shalizaar to celebrate our dear friends' birthdays, two days apart. We are fairly picky when it comes to treating our friends, and birthdays. I must say Shalizaar surpassed our expectation. This restaurant has a nice ambiance, friendly and fast staff, and above all FOOD is great. Four os us ordered four different dishes which we tasted each other's... More

I went to Shalizaar with a friend and enjoyed the atmosphere, service and food. It was an experience i'll not forget. The food was good but just not outstanding.
