Neighborhood Lebanese Food

Great little neighborhood restaurant in Lakeview. Service is warm and friendly and the food is very good. Portions are not especially large, so go ahead and order the appetizer sampler plate and try a variety of Lebanese specialties at the same time. Chicken dishes are very good,but if you like... read more

We are not from the area but it did come recommended. Also, I don't have much comparative reference as there are not too many Persian restaurants around. We did have a great meal and very nice waitress. We had the 4 course and were happy with all the dishes. Everything was served at a comfortable pace and other tables seem... More

Overpriced and not very authentic. I was really disappointed because I would say Persian food is one of my favorites. Gourmeh Sabzi and Fesenjan are two of my favorite dishes of all times, but here they seemed not as well attended to as in other Persian dining establishments.

Very nice cozy little place. This was my 2nd Groupon experience (much better than the 1st restaurant). The appetizer sampler was excellent. Very good lentil soup. The rack of lamp entree the only miss - the lamb was overcooked (medium-well, but still good flavor). The ice cream had an unusual honey syrup blend - had a perfume taste that I... More

This is the cutest gem of a restaurant. Amazing food (the lamb was to die for), and the people are so nice. Would definitely recommend!!

This is where we ate Thanksgiving Dinner. It is a Mediterranean Restaurant with the best food I ate while in Chicago. We were greeted as we entered and seated very promptly. The trays they brought us to eat on while waiting for our main meal were a meal themselves. There were different varieties of olives, breads, peppers, hummus, and two... More

We chose Pars Cove based on TripAdvisor ratings - it was fantastic! It was Thanksgiving evening and our party of 6 were seated quickly. The ambiance is wonderful and the staff are very helpful and attentive. We had one of the special meals for 2 that included 2 mixed drinks, an appetizer sampler (hummus, eggplant kashk, olives, stuffed grape leaves,... More

In an area of many competing eateries, Pars Cove can be easily overlooked. It is an unassuming walk-down with ethnic food. But it is a hidden treasure. We've dined there many times, once when there was a long line at a place next door. The ambience is very good--not loud, soft music. The service is prompt and courteous. The prices... More

Don't be fooled by it's humble appearance from the outside. This is a top notch restaurant with great Persian and Lebanese food. The appetizers are very good and I had the best lamb anywhere in the USA. All ingredients are high quality and the sauces are delicious. the dishes' components all work to compliment each other perfectly. The staff are... More

One of my favorite restaurants. I live around the corner and come here a couple of times a year for a nice meal. If you go with the deal, it's very inexpensive for two people. Appetizer platter, bottle of wine, two entrees (up to $18 each) and ice cream for dessert for $60. I've had the chicken and lamb fesenjan... More
