Good Mediterranean food

Last time I was at Raffi's we celebrated a retirement party. The food was great employees were helpful and friendly. Love the menu, however feel like it is overpriced and I can't afford to go there as often as I would like.

Came here with friends based on Concierge referral from Hilton hotel. Wonderful meal. Not over salted. Allowed Shirazi salad instead of Bazmati rice with no up charge. Lamb & salmon sishkabab excellent. Glad we came.

I only wish this place was closer. There is always a long wait so if you can do make reservations. The food is always awesome and fresh and the ambiance is very nice. Perfect for California. You won't be able to tell if you're inside or outside.

I now live in Hawaii, and used to live in SoCal for 40 years. Persian food is one of my favorites, but not common in Hawaii, and when I visit SoCal, I have to go to at least one or two places for my fix. This was my first visit to Raffi's and it was instant love! Will be coming... More

We had a large family gathering and this was my first time at Raffi's. Despite our large group the service was fast and friendly. The food was great. Koubideh(ground beef) was tasty but a tad over cooked and dry. The barg (beef filet) was absolutely great. Tender, moist and full flavor. The tea was great as well. Overall a wonderful... More

Raffi's is a very well known Persian restaurant with outstanding food. Their barbecued kabobs and rice are the best. They should have more locations in LA and beyond, this is their only one. We wish there was one in the Palm Springs area where we don't have any Persian restaurants, it would be a huge hit there as well. With... More

Have eaten here several times over many many years and this eatery never disappoints us. Building improvements have never interfered with the preparations of middle eastern cuisine. Always order family style portions are extremely generous ei. ..kebabs, fish, poultry or grilled vegetables. A variety of rices, salads and side dishes to numerous to list. Adult beverages served too.

Ok, so as you know I have a soft spot for Persian cousine and so far this restaurant has it when I am in the mood for good Koobideh with Tadig. I can't judge other good Persian restaurant becomes frankly who's to judge and give bad reviews on someone's business based on personal taste? For me, I love the food... More
