“Was hoping for more”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Delicious Persian food! Best hummus and tapenade around...”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

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 had the beef and lamb kofte, and I had fish kofte (I think that's what it was called), which is ground up and then packed into a patty, and served over rice. Very good! They even brought us ladies each a longstem rose. =-) Dessert was tasty vanilla ice cream with sautéed cherries and caramel sauce.

I recommend it to anyone who likes Persian food or to try something new!

“Nice place, good food”
Reviewed September 12, 2013


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 you are in the neighbourhood, do visit this lovely restaurant and enjoy it.

“Who Knew?”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Thanks to Groupon, I now know another gem in the city.
We went with another couple and the four of us had a great time!
We ate outside, had fabulous food, and a great deal...

Yup, we need to go back!

The food was unreal!

We each did the four course plus wine dinner.... we ended up stuffed to the gills but happy!

We had the appetizer sampler - OMG The humus, eggplant, etc...some of the best i have ever had!

We had four different entrees, and each was better than the next!

Dessert capped off the meal...

We had great service, and great food.

Feel free to email me with questions, but I would go back in a minute!

“Great Value & Excellent Customer Service”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

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 ceiling or in the back dining room with simple,attractive decor. Easy to reach via public transit as well as a fun neighbor for strolling.
