I am from California and for Persian food there is no place better than CA! So having said that, this place is nice and I always enjoy going there. The owner ( Majid) is just the warmest guy I have ever seen. He makes you feel like you are home. He brings samples of his most proud items, and all time favorite foods even if you do not ask for it. He sincerely wants you to have fun and enjoy.

My husband and I had dinner at Pars last night, and we loved the experience! We were greeted promptly upon arrival and seated at a cosy table for two. The servers were attentive without hovering, took our order quickly, and made sure our water glasses were never more than half empty. Our appetizers were served promptly, and we did not experience a problem cited by an earlier reviewer- we had more than adequate time to enjoy our appetizers before our entrees were served. That said, we weren't kept waiting for the entrees either. As my entree was being served, our waitress noticed that the special rice I ordered was not on the plate. She quickly assured me it was coming, and brought it on a separate side dish. I thought that was especially nice, as it allowed me to start on the rest of my entree while waiting for the rice, instead of having my plate taken back to the kitchen. We also enjoyed dessert and tea, served with courtesy and a smile. I would highly recommend Pars!

I really like your restaurant but the last 2 times I have been there, each time bringing a guest, I have had an unpleasant experience. 5 or 6 minutes after the combination appetizer arrived the staff has said hurry up your main course has arrived- oh you are not ready? How long? The restaurant was far from full so there was no reason to hurry us (not that a full house would excuse that anyway) Furthermore after the main course when we were ready for dessert it was hard to find staff at all. I am not at all sure I will be back but thought you should know why. I came again because I like the food but such service is unpleasant and even embarrassing if one brings a guest. I send this with best wishes as I enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

My rather high expectations (based on rave reviews from [formerly] trustworthy friends), were met with mediocre food that was poorly seasoned. In fact, the mushroom stew (described inaccurately as curry) was so atrocious that I could have sworn it was Campbell's cream of mushroom soup. There are far better places for dinner in the neighborhood.

Good quality, delicious food and great atmosphere. Was dining with my friends on Tuesday night, we got a nice spot by the window. Had Eggplant appetizer which was amazing with fresh bread and for main course we shared Pars Special for two, which comes with two big plates of basmati rice. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. Will visit again.

These guys went out of their way. They delivered my food to Soho at no extra cost. Food was fabulous, great portions (not sure what the guy complaining about portions is on about), and high quality. This was a real treat!

Kabob was served with a couple of spoonfuls of rice. I asked for more rice and they charged me $5.95 for a few more spoonfuls. This is not how chelo-kabob is served. Food was mediocre; from appetizers to main courses. Ghormeh sabzi stew was so old it was blackish. Service? The gentleman who greeted us was very cheerful and nice but the waitress was very very slow and unprofessional.
