We were here for a birthday dinner and our server (Ayar?) went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. Great variety and tasty food, and well worth it!
Great option for Grand Rapids dining!
Always have a great experience here. Nice to have some non traditional choices in Grand Rapids!
Shiraz Grill is superlative!
Our dinner at Shiraz Grille scored on every level. The food was outstanding. We ordered the sampler of appetizers and had wonderful eggplant, hummus, and feta cheese with walnuts. My husband's dinner was so delicious that I am afraid I kept eating from his plate as well as mine. He had a Persian stew with pinto beans and rice with pistachios, almonds, and candied orange curls. My Cornish game hen was succulent and with interesting spices. What a treat also to find Martinis with real martini glasses not just small, itty bitty glasses and the 007 martinis we had with Bombay Sapphire gin and Grey Goose vodka were superb. Our waiter explained the whole menu to us at the beginning and was a perfect server, never hovering but always noticing our table. A.R., you are the best! We will definitely be back! What a treat!

The food was fantastic! And our server was excellent, but when we asked for some of their soup to go, she had to "ask permission from the chef" before she could give us any. They are also funny about coupons and gift certificates so don't be surprised if they don't except them.

fantastic brunch, so fresh and flavorful. I wish they offered this more often, apparently only on special occasions.
For anybody who likes to try something different I can highly recommend Shiraz. They have some Mediterranean items on the menu, but for a real taste of Persia I can truly recommend ordering one of their Khoreshes. Their staff is very friendly and polite as well.
Wonderful, Quiet, Unique
The Persian menu is authentic and a wonderful difference from the common Mexican or Italian fare. My friends and I go there often because we know we will be able to hear one another talk, the food and wine will be wonderful, and the service will be smooth as silk. This dinner restaurant is spotless, elegant and lovely.

Food is always great; friendly and knowledgeable servers. Food can take a while to prepare, so don't expect to be in and out in a hurry. Totally worth the wait!
We think you will be very happy with a meal at Shiraz Grill. Our group share the appetizer platter, 2 curries and a kabob dish all were delicious. We especially loved the eggplant appetizers and the special rices. If you ask they will upgrade your plain rice, we had the lentil and onion and wedding versions which were fantastic.
Good food, good experience, and nice peopke. Only problem, our waitress was a little slow to check on us. Other than that very nice.
The best Persian food I have ever had!!

Happy New Year!
My husband and I dined at Shiraz New Year's Eve and were delighted with the prixe fixe menu and suggested wine pairing. It was a lovely evening we plan to repeat soon. Service was great and the food was unique and tasty.

We like the ambiance, we really like the food. Made for a wonderful evening with a lovely lady. Thanks
Efficient server, well prepared, fresh tasting food. Lovely decor. From appetizers to entree, flavor was very good. Only less than perfect part of this entree and Koreshes previously ordered is that the rice to "meat" ratio was in favor of the rice. Hostess was friendly and watchful. Will return.
This place is wonderful. We had the lamb kabobs which were cooked to perfection. We will definitely go back
Excellent food and atmosphere
Was looking for something special to treat my cousin from Arizona. Great Persian food. Tried the four appetizer sampler and three entrees. All were beyond delicious. Food, service and atmosphere were perfect. I am a vegen but my wife and cousin are not. We all left quite satisfied.

Really a pleasant find. Highly recommend!
Excellent Persian cuisine
The usual middle Eastern kabobs are excellent, but for a real treat, try one of the fantastic, subtly spiced koreshes. Yum! Servers very knowledgeable and helpful.
Persian Food - a rare Experience
I have eaten Persian food before in California, but wasn't aware that it could be found in Michigan. This place has outstanding selection of Persian dishes - everything from the usual Kabobs to excellent vegetarian dishes. Decent wine selection and reasonable selection of craft beers in bottles. Was very quiet for an uncrowded lunch and judging from the size of the room and the ample spacing between tables - plus the beautiful decor - it definitely promises to be a winner for a romantic evening. When we dined there for lunch restaurant wasn't crowded so hard to judge how service would be with a full house - but for us it was outstanding.
Flavor, quality and great service
If you have not tried Persian food then do yourself a favor and check out Shiraz Grill. The food is wonderful and of high quality. The Kashk Bodemjon which is an eggplant appetizer made me change my mind about eggplant. It is wonderful. The Orange saffron chicken has a wonderful flavor. The saffron really stands out and pairs beautifully with the orange and make sure to order the wedding rice to have with it. Make sure to save room or split Ali's Persian Icecream. I would go back just for that. Great food and service. If you are looking for something out of the normal routine this is a great place to visit. There are also many nice vegetarian.
A must go to... have the lamps
This is a place we adore to go. You MUST have the lamps. It's just an "out-of-this-world" experience but must everything is worth the expense.
Decent but did not Wow
Food is good. But I cannot say that some of it is worth the price. Chef was out of town when we visited so maybe that made a difference. But for the price there are better options in town.
Authentic Persian cuisine,awesome service. GREAT!
had a fantastic experience. The servers are very polite, cheerful and friendly. Food is fantastic. Highly recommend it !
Perfect place to dine and visit with friends
Service, great. Food, perfectly prepared. Nice ambiance--low key, but nice hum. What more is needed to make an outstanding dining experience with friends on a Saturday night?
If you are in the mood for something different and delicious, the savory offerings of Shiraz are perfectly suited.
A Local Getaway
We always have enjoyed our visits to Shiraz. It is just up the street but once inside it feels like we have traveled to a faraway land. The food and service are excellent, not rushed and personal. They want your experience to be a pleasant one.
Delicious meals for all palates!
We brought friends who are world travelers...They LOVED everything about Shiraz! Half way through the meal they said "we are coming back"! After a few minutes more they said "We will have to bring ______ and ____ here for sure!" We all loved our meals. I highly recommend the Wedding Rice!
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Will definitely be back.
Excellent Service, Food was decent
Unique food selection here. The food was pretty good, very subtle flavors.
A wonderful restaurant
The food was great & we'll definitely go back! Lots of options for meat eaters and vegetarians. Their rice is second to none! Service was wonderful, even when we decided not to buy drinks. Overall an awesome experience!
Shiraz is always a great choice!
My husband and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Shiraz. Although we could have enjoyed their special Valentine's Day menu, we chose our entrees off the regular menu and were not disappointed. We love the variety of meal choices and will definitely come back again.
Quiet dinner spot
The food and service here seem to have declined recently. The cornish hen was dry (and it used to be my favorite order) and the rice with lima beans seemed excessively buttery on another dish. The servers are friendly but they are slow and seem untrained. Still, the soup remains outstanding and the Bodemjan (sp?) dishes are very tasty. The Persian flavors are a nice change from other similar middle eastern items.
They know their menu !
Dined here last week on a relatively quiet Thursday and enjoyed a delicious meal. Our server recommended starting with a 4-dish sampler platter and gave us her favorites. Next, she recommended the special of the month - Lamb with Curry and vegetables. My husband devoured it ! Wine list was ok, atmosphere was quiet and staff very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We would definitely recommend Shiraz to others and suggest that they listen to the experts that work there ~ All of there suggestions were right on !
Tuesday night dinner
We have never dined at Shiraz Grille on a weekend therefore judging a "crowd" on a Tuesday evening would be unfair. The lamb shanks were delicious, the meat tender and falling off the bone. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a very nice dinner.
atmosphere was pleasant,quiet and unique
we were seated immediately.tables and furnishings were cool and seemed new. our waitress was pleasant and attentive. also helpful as we had not had persian food before. my food. to be honest, was bland and lacked flavor and seasoning other than saphron. my wife had some hotsauce on the side, and i like hotsauce, this was not great. i had the beef tenderloin kabob and the lamb and pork kabob. the portion size was adequate but lacked flavor. my wife had the chicken kabob and said it was good, i'm glad because it was her birthday. the shimp ordered in the appetizer was good ,although we ordered the four part sampler so they would only give two shrimp instead of five.
Wonderful as usual!
My husband and I had visited Shiraz earlier this year and really enjoyed it so when his birthday came around it was the perfect choice. This time we brought our teenage son with us and he enjoyed the food as much as we did. The service was outstanding and the waitress is amazing she actually remembered us from our last visit several months ago. All in all well worth it, I would recommend to anyone.
I had such a great time at the Shiraz Grille. Everything was done to perfection and the service was above average.
