Ravagh was fantaaastic. I went there last night with a party of 12 for my friend's birthday. The decor was more refined than I envisioned. There are two levels, they seated us on the upper level. The staff were very sweet the entire time.

Pros: Kebabs

.

This place was highly recommended. Having just come from LA, the Persian restaurants in NYC are definitely in a league much below there. Good kababs, but not much else. I wouldn't come here again.

Pros:
good prices
ok kabab koobideh and lamb kabab

Cons:
food quality (the khorests are flavorless and their kabab barg was dry and overcooked)
bad service (very slow, not knowledgable)

Atmosphere: Good decor. The upstairs is nicer and a bit more spacious. It's not nice enough to take a date, though good for a family outing.

Food: The food isn't good, though comparable with the other Persian restaurants in Manhattan--Persepolis has better food but is very over-priced. The barg in the Soltani kabab was totally dry, the koobideh was ok. The fesenjoon was really flavorless (not enough saffron or pomegranate). The ghormeh sabzi was lacking a lot too. The lamb kabab was good. Khorest-e bademjan was ok.

Service: The waiters didn't know what they had available and were not knowledgeable about Persian cuisine. My friend (not Iranian) asked for a dish prepared vegetarian which they said they could do and we confirmed with them 3 times. They brought it out meat and "fixed" it by scooping out the meat without offering any apology. We waited about 20 minutes for our order to be taken and about another 20 minutes to receive the check after we asked for it despite the restaurant being not too crowded. The 20% included gratuity was definitely not deserved (we were a party of 6).

Price: Since Manhattan is generally expensive, the $10-12 khorests and $15-16 kababs are a good value. You do get what you pay for and the food quality leaves a lot to be desired.
