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

We had a delicious meal here; top quality ingredients, freshly prepared, good choice of veggie dishes and sensible sized portions. After a 3 course meal and clearing our plates, we felt pleasantly full. The prices are reasonable, the staff lovely and the ambiance welcoming. We ate inside downstairs, but you can also sit outside or inside at street level.

This casual, rather small restaurant is located about a block west of the northwestern corner of Lincoln Park (on Diversey). The menu is primarily Persian and the food seems quite good. Our party of four had lamb shank, chicken with a walnut/pomgranite sauce, chicken kebab and barg (grilled beef) and all were very tasty. The appetizer plate was excellent and... More

We joined friends here last evening for a delightful Persian dinner. We had a dish of multiple appetizers to share as a start while we conversed and it had a variety of items on it served with flat bread - the hummus was outstanding but every item was good. I had a lamb kabob which was succulent and delicious served... More

I was super exited to try their food and had very high expectations. That is why I was a little disappointed, it was not as good as I have had at other places. Service was just above average, the food was good and the evening was great.

We checked out Pars Cove with a Groupon for the 4 course menu, and it was fabulous! We got a sampler plate with hummus, tapenade, veggies, dolmeh and some other goodies, and we agreed hands down, it was the best hummus and tapenade we had ever eaten! We bought containers to take home! Our entrees were terrific as well. Some... More

This is a nice place, with a nice atmosphere. It's cosy, a bit romantic even. The service was good and friendly. We had the 4 course offer, which turned out to be a good deal: a selection of starters, a nice salad (you can also choose soup), an entree and dessert. And a bottle of wine was included! So when...

How often do you get very tasty food at a terrific value! The server pointed out that the combination meal(with Fabulous appetizers) was way less $ than what we planned to order and it included a glass of wine, The wine was decent, not great, but an upgrade was available. We liked the variety of seating choices-outdoors, under the glass... More

I went to Pars Cove figuring it would have lamb. It did, and I ordered some as a main course. But before the lamb came, I had devoured an eggplant dip and some hummus and a wonderfully fresh salad. I was stuffed before I saw my lamb. My impression is that the lamb was pretty ordinary, more or less what... More
