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.

This one of my favorite places in the neighborhood . I frequently eat here and it never disappoints me. The food is very well prepared and cooked. 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

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 lamb try the lamb chopped. That being said, this recipe... 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
