    I recommend the yogurt trio appetizer and the Mirza Ghasemi dip, which is smoked eggplant with tomato and garlic. For the main course, I suggest either the roasted salmon or the shish kabob. Read more

    As someone who grew up on Persian food, this place is as good as it gets. Their Chilean sea bass is one of the best that I've ever had and is very generously portioned. A must try.

    We loved the Shrimp, the meatballs, always a nice surprise of flavor blends on each entree choice. Every time we eat at Rumi's we're happy with our choices. One of my favorite restaurants close by!

    Everything was fantastic. Food, drinks, service...we asked our server what her favorites were and she didn't steer us wrong. The lamb was so tender and the rices were top notch.

    Have been to Rumi's numerous times, which means I like the place. For me, the best item on the menu is the ground beef koobideh. Very simple, but sublime. Start the meal off some Kashk Badenjoon.

    Be prepared to wait even with a reservation on a weekend night. Food is worth the wait. We just had small plates and they were all good. Lamb sliders are the best! Dolmeh has a unique tangy flavor.

    Special fixed menu for Valentine's Day. Ordered cumin carrot soup and got tomato. Hubby ordered kale and date salad and got arugula with almonds. The lesson here is come early

    New location is very nice. Get the filet or salmon. Absolutely the best! Very nice atmosphere. Staff is nice. Valet is tight fit but pretty quick. Oh yeah. Get the filet or salmon. Trust me!

    Although Rumi's Kitchen has moved into a new space, the restaurant's top-notch Persian food remains just as good as before. [Eater 38 Member]

    Everything is delicious - dips and spreads, shrimp kabobs, chicken brag. Get the Orange and almond rice. Portions are huge - can easily split main courses.

    Great food/experience, amazing service. Ask for the appetizer sampler and try the various yogurts and eggplant dishes with the bread (which is delicious by itself).

    If you're not the biggest fan of this food, try the Chinjeh kabob - steak, bread and a yummy "non weird" yogurt dip. Great for picky eaters!

    Recommend salad sampler and split an entree. Salads (epecially 2 eggplant dishes) out of this world. I spent 7 years in Middle East. This is good.

    This is not a kids friendly place. Staff seemed upset as we arrived with two small kids. They seated us in the back room in a high table despite we asked in the reservation and there for else.

    Was a little disappointed with the chicken barg which was supposed to be spicy... ah no. They do have a chili pepper condiment sauce that upped the hot factor though. Still recommend!
