    Zafron is the perfect Persian cuisine restaurant! It made the early Valentine's date worth the drive (we live a few towns away). A warm and inviting atmosphere set the tone. Get the garden room for a more secluded experience. The food was absolutely delicious, offering an authentic taste of Persian culinary traditions. The service was exemplary; attentive staff went above and beyond to ensure our evening was special, offering recommendations after some solid active listening…being our first time. I believe it was Zai that took care of us - she’s special and anyone would be lucky to get paired with her! The restaurant's ambiance, with its elegant decor and soft lighting, added to the romantic setting, making our early Valentine's celebration even more memorable. We learned the owner has a background in bakery and makes the desserts himself, soooo good! I would highly recommend this Zafron to anyone looking for exceptional Persian cuisine, outstanding service, and an atmosphere that makes every occasion special. Whether for a romantic date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends, it’s impressive.

    This was our first time trying zafron due to a friend's recommendation. Let me just say our experience was exceptional. Our server Trinity was great. She's such a sweetheart. Between her and the other waitress that was helping we enjoyed every moment. I ordered the salmon based off the servers recommendation and my husband had the soltans feast which was a combination. Apparently it's not on the lunch menu but it's available upon request. We definitely will be returning again. I've been to other Persian restaurants down the street but this one just felt so much more at home. It's much more down to earth. The food is just as tasty and the waitresses teamwork along with the ambiance will have us as returning customers for a long time coming. Thank you zafron for our wonderful experience .

    Tried Zafron today for the 1st time. I’ve always heard great things so I figured we’d try for ourselves. Let me just say I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. My server Melissa was outstanding I believe it’s her daughter that works there as well which was so cute. They made such a good team. Food was amazing. They started to get a little busy near the end but not once did we feel like an afterthought. We will definitely be returning.

    The Tandoori chicken kabob was delicious and perfectly cooked. Nice relaxed atmosphere and easy to park. I generally loved the loghting but perhaps could be dimmed just a bit. Heat could be turned up just a bit. Overall its a great place to have a good healthy meal and catch up with a friend. I will return soon as I am already craving the chicken.

    Service was very slow. Food was good but the service aspect really ruined the first time experience
