Bijan's Brooklyn nestled in the heart of Boerum Hill is Brooklyn's "best secret". We have a cozy, intimate neighborhood feel with a warm wood burning fireplace paired with modern-bistro style cuisine offering a delicious culinary combination of American plates fused with Persian style spices & flare. Creative culinary plates such as the Persian spiced chicken wings leave the palette craving for more. Don't forget the mind blowing craft cocktails. For a great atmosphere, fabulous & friendly service, the staff would be happy to make you something to cure what ails ya!

    Reserved a table on a Sunday night. Ambience was cosy and the service was great. If you ever end up coming I'd highly recommend the spicy shrimp pizza, it was absolutely delicious. The fireplace was a plus as well.

    Only rating the things I experienced poorly and giving average for the ones I didn’t. Made a reservation to come here for lunch and was told it’d be a 20 minute wait or so. I told the server I had a reservation to which he less than kindly replied “well you can sit at the bar if you want. I’m the only one here.” I used to work in hospitality, for many years, so I get the feeling of being in the weeds and being understaffed but the tone and delivery were not very welcoming. So we left.

    Loved the room and some of the best Persian food in New York. The soup and stew were both as close to my Iranian mom’s as I’ve had.

    The food is below average. Not worth the price. Some tables have benches. I was very uncomfortable. It’s also cold. Every time the door opens. There should be more heaters.

    I booked a reservation at 11:15 for brunch and the restaurant wasn’t open… why would you have availability at a time when you are not open. Your hours say 11am- midnight

    We went to a Mother’s Day brunch here and it was a disappointing experience. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and explained to us that they didn’t expect to be so busy, but it was Mother’s Day and the restaurant was fully booked - you’d think a responsibly run restaurant would staff accordingly! Our food took 45 minutes, which is okay given how busy it was but the staff completely ignored us while we waited, except for the three times they came over with food meant for another table - so we were waiting *and* being taunted with food that wasn’t ours. I had to ask three separate times for a water refill while we waited. The food was okay, no complaints, but the poor service really tanked the whole dining experience.

    SO delicious. Truly a gem. The food was amazing. And the atmosphere was lovely. Plan on being here for at least 2 hours. My part really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, however service does take quite a while. Small staff and small kitchen. But worth it for the food!

    Staff was very friendly The shrimp zucchini appetizer was very nice Entrees: recommend the chicken highly; pistachio crusted salmon was very good, perfectly cooked and well presented; tagliatelle with shrimp- very good, generous serving of shrimp- would have preferred the pasta to have been more al dente.

    Really not a great place for brunch or lunch. Way too expensive - didn’t even have cocktails and it was $100 for three people who had salads and sodas. The salmon salad is so meager for $25…it’s literally a fillet and one serving of mixed greens with no vegetables. The service was fine, although it wasn’t very busy and we were able to flag them down easily since they weren’t very attentive. Ambiance is fine. Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

    The food was phenomenal, I had the Bijan burger - it really stands above a run of the mill Diner burger; the menu says its made of Short ribs and Sirloin, and I'm inclined to believe it! I had seen reviews here that they don't take card, but they did - they just told me Brunch was cash only (but sometimes they make exceptions). Lovely food, and lovely people - very convenient, will eat here again
