Just awful. We were a party of 5, and paid $69 for a Groupon that included 1 appetizer, 2 salads/soups, 2 entrees, 2 small ice creams and one sangria. Additionally, we ordered an entree with a soup, and an appetizer. We got YELLED, literally YELLED by the owner, indicating that we cannot order so little since we were using a... More

A real under the radar Persian restaurant in Chicago. The Chicago go to Persian joint was for a long time Reza’s. As a longtime Reza customer from the very beginning when they first opened to recently, I can attest to its slow and steady decline from greatness to mediocrity. So looking for a new go to Persian food restaurant, I... More

Words cannot describe how wonderful the Persian food was. Excellent course after course. The ice cream dessert with honey and cinnamon was a delicious ending to a wonderful night.

Our first time visiting with a sizable party including 4 kids. After asking few questions about our preferences, platters of owner-selected dishes began arriving with particular favorites being the lentil soup, tapenade, hummus, salmon, white fish, and chicken fesenjan.

It is amazing that you can have a menu for $10 in which is included an small appetizer, lentils or salad as start, an entree to chose among different plates, and dessert. It... More

We have dined here a couple of times now. On our most recent visit we sat towards the back but if you can get a table in front that's the place to sit! Front seating feels cozy and romantic, kind of like dining in a cave. The back, unfortunately, feels like sitting in the basement. Even so, the owner and... More

We live nearby and love to go to Pars Cove on a regular basis. The food is always outstanding, as is the service ... and incredibly affordable! The dessert and complimentary rose at the end is always a sweet touch. We're lucky to have this restaurant in our neighborhood.

A very warm atmosphere with friendly waiters and reasonable portions. The only problem with this is that if you know Persian food, you realize the food here is not authentically Persian. The taste good and the quality is high, however you may find the taste of the patty in "fesenjun" strangely similar to that of "Soltani" or "Barg". If you... More
