I was visiting from LA and my friends took me there for dinner. We found molds on their silverware and grease on dishes. Food did not taste right. They use mustard-green in their ghormeh-sabzi. The fish was fried in oil which did not

This restaurant is very good! It is in Andersonville, which is a great neighborhood in Chicago. The food is delicious and the drinks are great, too!

Great food, fresh, seasoned properly, a wonderful variety of vegetarian and seafood dishes. I highly recommend it for going out with friends when you want to make sure there are plenty of choice for everyone.

Really enjoy Rezas food, huge space, so rarely much of a wait. The portions are enormous, and we always have leftovers. They offer family style dining as well as a full menu. Service is very average, friendly but tend to disapper for long periods of time.

In my younger years, my aunt would take home some of her leftovers that she'd get whenever her hospital friends ordered out for lunch. Back then, the only think I knew about Mediterranean food was Gyros. When I ate the food, I liked it from the start (granted I found it a little dry...and it still was in the recent visit). I came here for my 18th birthday, but for some reason that I can't remember I was in a foul mood and didn't feel like eating. Fast forward to 2008 and 8 years after, I find myself going here once again. Now, takeout orders may be one thing, but actually ordering something here is another. the plates are HUGE!!! My family were done just by eating the appitizer sample platter (1 big piece of pita with a "lazy suzan" plate of 6 different hummus type sauces). I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and Filet Migon combo, and instead of getting 1 filet of fish and steak i got 2 filets of steak plus one big filet of fish cut into 4 portions PLUS a full plate of couscous. Needless to say, it was overwhelming for 1 sitdown meal. The fish was great, but the steak was another story (leathery feeling and hard to cut through). I tried my mom's and aunt's dishes and they too were pretty tough (but good). I for one like the place, but not to the point I'd go everyday. my suggestion is to come with an empty stomach and get ready to chow down.

Pros: LOTS of food

Cons: parking lot is hidden, best to have reservation for dinner after 5PM

If you enjoy savory Middle east/Persian fare you will love Reza's. It is oozing with charm. The service is wonderful, and the food is fantastic. The portions are simply huge. You get complimentary hummas/pita and even if you are not a vegatarian you will want to try their veggie appetizers. They have grilled portabello mushrooms in a sauce of pomegranate that is to die for. They also make large wedges (they call them planks) of potatoes grilled in the same sauce. It's heaven. Don't come here just thinking "gyros". They have an incredible lamb shank that is very meaty and flavorful and the lamb kabobs are awesome. If you want beef they do medallions of beef filet (4) grilled and it is heaven in your mouth. All of their seafood is shipped in fresh and whatever is in season. Very large lunch & dinner menu and cocktails. You will be sharing food with your dining companions. This is a class act in the heart of Andersonville.

Pros: large selection huge portions

Cons: none

The portions at Reza are enormous, so the amount of food you get is worth the price. My girlfriend and I shared an entree and we had more than enough to take home for the next day's lunch. The food was good, especially the eggplant appetizer, though our falafel appetizer was cold when it came out; it must have been sitting around awhile, because it arrived at our table 60 seconds after we ordered it. Service was OK, though our waiter was a little odd and not very communicative. I'd definitely go back again.

Pros: Portions, flavors, tons of seating so no wait

Cons: Appetizer was cold

I went to Reza's for the first time with a friend who frequently eats here and recommended it. We were seated right away and the menu was huge with so many vegetarian options! The complimentary pita bread with feta and soup was awesome! The appetizers and food we ordered were by far the largest portions I have seen at any restaurant in years! My friend and I ate so much food and we still had to box some up to go! It was so tasty and good! I recommend it to everyone!

Pros: Excellent food! So many items to choose from!

Cons: Too quiet (not many customers) and a bit chilly (air conditioning on full blast).

I'm rarely disappointed with Reza's. The order-in sometimes is just as good. Prices are steep but I think overall worth the food. Sometimes a little on the dry side but I think that is the risk you take when you order kebobs anywhere. The few times I've gone there were during lunch time on a weekend. it's packed, which says a lot about its popularity and some may say, by extrapolation, its food.
I recommend it highly.

I just went here a couple of weeks ago for their sunday brunch buffet. I had heard a lot of great things about it, so I was looking forward to it. I had mixed feelings at the end of the meal. The Middle Eastern food was pretty good. Most of it was tasty and fresh. The only thing I would avoid are the bagles and crossaints - those tasted stale. I also thought the restaurant could be a little better kept. It was a bit dirty when we went. Also, the waitress we had was hard to find and we had to wait endlessly for our drinks and our bill. Overall, an okay place to go. I think for $25/per person, you can get better though.

As recent as 2 years ago Rezas was great. Pretty decent veggie options and over all a good value. The staff has always been nice - with the frequent acceptions of "friends of the owners" coming in and getting priority to the customers - this seems to happen often at the Clark location - unacceptable. Presently it seems Rezas is trying to pay for their insipid tv commercials that are investing basic cable channels in Chicago. They Sunday brunch is $20. A "champaigne brunch" is still $20 if you pass on alcohol. What a joke. Their beef in the buffet is just short of vile. Their "made to order" omelet bar NEVER has a chef present - no one to make omelets. The owners are getting bloated and lazy if they think the people in Andersonville will pay for this kind of over-rated Cr*P. Reza's what has become of you?

Reza's is my favorite casual restaraunt period. I dine here at least two times a month, and I have yet to be dissapointed. The service is wonderful and always brings plenty of the fresh, warm pita bread and imported feta. The menu is great on a vegetrian and carnivoure side. I personally enjoy the combos. Two of my favorites are the reza's special chicken and filet kabob for only $13.00, and the ground chicken kabobs for $10. If you go for lunch, the buffet has a large variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights that will make your mouth water. The service is always great, and I always walk out full.

I have been dining in or ordering delivery from Reza's for fifteen years, I have even dined with Reza himself. The quality, consistency and portions have never changed. Reza's is an excellent place to introduce someone to mediterranean food. The meat is especially good on summer nights when the cooks barbecue outside in the back. The portions are huge, everything is fresh, the fish is excellent and the vegetarian choices are superb. My only complaints have ever been the service (when Reza is not around) and the shrimp, which I have been disappointed with on a few occasions. The lady who answers the phone for deliveries and less often the waitstaff, can be very rude, hurried and condescending. Normally, I would discontinue patronage however the food cannot be contended with in chicago. Reza's truly is the only mediterranean restaurant of its level in Chicago.

Everything was absolutely delicious, and there were new things for people who are familiar with the typical hummus and falafel type mediterranean places. Seafood skewers were generously portioned and everything was grilled just great. Meat and veggie eaters alike will find something to love. Wine list was affordable. I really liked the cheese plate appetizer too with a fresh and mile feta, olives and some other nibbles. Definitely recommend.

Been here at least 15 times, never had any reason to complain. This is a wonderful way to introduce people to Middle Eastern foods. The menu is extensive, bound to impress. Service is always prompt, but a bit impersonal.

Reza's is simple middle-eastern cuisine, but well-prepared. The quality is good, prices are very good, the crowd is eclectic, the neighborhood is interesting and, best of all, it is open late. There is ample parking across the street.

The hummus here is awesome. After a few at the Hopleaf, we stop by Reza's and score some hummus and pita. The dinners are good, too. Soooo much food.

Seems most things about this Reza's is generous: seating, service and portions. Six of us went to eat on a busy Saturday night, but were still comfortably seated and served quickly, and I had enough food left over for a full lunch the next day.

These big Persian restaurants serve bounteous meals at budget prices, and that keeps them busy. Your best bet is to go with a group and share, starting with vegetarian appetizers---velvety hummus, refreshing tabbouleh, kashkeh bodemjan (a…
