I booked this place for my brother's birthday for 20 people. Even though I called three weeks before and booked the private dining room, they double-booked it, and we were moved to the general dining area.

I love Persian food and I haven't really come across many of them. I went to this Alborz before going to a concert and the service was terrible. There was only one server for the entire restaurant and she spent the whole time flirting with one table. The food wasn't anything special either. There was nothing on the menu that I couldn't find at another restaurant. I give it two stars because it's conveniently located across from the Regency and the other restaurants nearby looked far worse.

I stopped at this place today for takeout. If you're a vegetarian you dont have many options here but the roated eggplant is fantastic. Its sort of like the persion form of babba ganoush.

SLEAZY!! We purchased a gift certificate for them through Restaurant(dot)com - but they refused to honor claiming that they "didn't have a contract with them anymore and didn't have to honor it." The restaurant was almost completely empty

Great place for dinner before running across & down Van Ness to see a movie! The standard fare with some twists to please. The kabobs were artfully done to perfection; seasoned & tender as could be. The pomegranate chicken offering was

Pros: Baklava, baklava, baklava!

Cons: sharing the restrooms with an adjoining cafe

I've been to Alborz 3 or 4 times and the service has been excellent. While the prices can be a little steep when you add in all the extras (two people can easily be 40-50 dollars), its an overall excellent restaurant. The Koobideh is

I'm a little surprised by the other reviews I see for the restaurant. This is a very solid neighborhood restaurant. If you rate it as a destination restaurant, it will fall short. It's best to think of it as a great place to get a

Try the Alborz platter for two to try 2 of each skewer along w/two plates of the best rice anywhere. The saffron and sumac seasoning is so unique. The service is serious and professional. Some may be confused by the raw onion served as a

I went to Alborz recently and found the food very dry, overpriced for the amount you received and the service was poor. Don't waste your money.

I tried this restaurant due to the high rating. I discovered that the meal I had was very dry. I think this restaurant is overrated. Don't spend your hard earned cash at this place. They will rob you blind with the price of the bill.

The restaurant is overpriced. I had the kebab plate and found it was mostly rice with little kebab meat and a big raw onion. I found that plate to be very unappetizing, not much flavour, no sauces - very dry. I wouldn't recommend this

Deliciously spiced meats and saffron rice. Very good service and mellow environment. Not the hippest place in time, but a very nice family restaurant.
