    Depends on the day

    The quality of food at Perspolis seems to be inconsistent. There have been times that I could have licked the plates clean, and times when almost everything I ordered had practically no resemblance to Persian dishes. Now, I must admit I've experienced this "phenomenon " at many restaurants in NYC. I assume it has something to do with which chef is on shift! I think part of the problem at Perspolis has to do with their French-ization! Sometimes I feel they are putting too much emphasis on showcasing the restaurant’s elegance versus focusing on improving quality and value. They have even French-ized the name of some authentic dishes! The names make me laugh every time! Having said that, on average, I've walked away from Perspolis more satisfied than not. I recommend it.

    fair fair

    First service was fair, plates cleared fast, but no one asked how was the food or if we wanted more wine. the restuarant itself was very very warm-uncomfortable hot actually inside as for its location..hello nyc here everyone walks! i took the crosstown bus to lex & 79th and walked the 5 blocks-what is 5 blocks to a new yorker?? and after dinner a stroll to hunter college for the No 6 subway was perfect. as for the food: the eggplant was almost tastless-you could tell it was eggplant but mildly so. i had the lamb shank with herbed couscous. the lamb fell off the bone, very tender but had no distinguishable taste-bland strikes again. The accompaining couscous was delicious. Now, as for dessert whoever said P's baklava was better than their moms need to come over to my house--i was dissapointed-very-first the baklava was 4 pieces each about he size of a stamp-and then soggy. The tea however was delicous! all in all not impressed and probably wont revist as any of the food listed could be found in a better Greek or Turkish restaurant in town-as in reality all our foods form the middle east are very similar.

    It was far too expensive for the value.

    I spent $80 for two people to eat 3 yogurt dips and small portion sizes for dinner! It is not worth the price when you could easily get a more authentic dinner at other Persian restaurants in the city! I would not recommend this if you want to eat a big meal for dinner.

    Surprised by negativity in reviews

    I have been going to Persepolis for years. My father is Persian, so I know about the cooking. And one can say there are better Persian restaurants in Tehran, Los Angeles, London, but this is about New York. And Persepolis is reasonably priced restaurant, good food, nice decor. As to the reviewer who berates the restaurant by saying that the East Sides sucks and it is so far from the subway at 77th and Lex to Persepolis at 74th and 2nd -- that takes what , some 8 minutes of walking -- if you want the land of valet parking, go to the West Coast (where I am from), do not denigrate a restaurant's reputation because you find it too far to for walk 8 minutes (think of it as an outdoor mall)-- and if one is not able to walk, we have the buses here and cabs.

    Baklava is to die for

    Food is great, good wine choice, atmosphere is beautiful and most of all...the baklava is the best I have ever had, and it beats my mom's.

    Nice Renovation Disspaointing Food

    Before Persepolis renovated, I used to go there all the time, and the food was decent. It seems the cost of renovation might have forced the owner to compromise on the quality of the food. Recently, I happened to crave Iranian food and stopped by for take-out, the kebab was half done, and the rice was aromatic as always.
