Back again -- for the umpteenth time. Whatever you choose, Max will cook it up deliciously. This place is a gem -- but don't tell everyone! Salmon, chicken, hummus. Great Middle-Eastern food. If you haven't tried this cuisine -- try it here!

Great Groupon experience! Max, the owner, was very hospitable. The lamb shank Fessenjan and sea bass were excellent! I would also highly recommend the baked eggplant app. Very good Sangria, but too expensive by the glass. Max gave my fiancé a red rose. Our second visit.

Well I always say if the business is using Groupons they're more often than not close to going out of business. As for Pars Cove, Hmmm... the owner was running the front and cooking at the same time. He's at least 70 years old and had one waitress with no apparent experience. I give the owner credit for trying hard,... More

Good friendly service. Very good hummus. We had the sea bass and salmon. Both were delicious. Good value, entree price includes lentil soup or salad and a small cup of vanilla ice cream topped with honey, strawberry sauce and cinnamon. Mmm mmm good!

We found this place by accident and we were thrilled. We love Mediterranean so we had to try it out! We had the 4 course special with sangria. What a deal for $69 for the 2 of us. Great food, great atmosphere, and such a charming waitress! This place is a gem!

Just awful. We were a party of 5, and paid $69 for a Groupon that included 1 appetizer, 2 salads/soups, 2 entrees, 2 small ice creams and one sangria. Additionally, we ordered an entree with a soup, and an appetizer. We got YELLED, literally YELLED by the owner, indicating that we cannot order so little since we were using a... More

A real under the radar Persian restaurant in Chicago. The Chicago go to Persian joint was for a long time Reza’s. As a longtime Reza customer from the very beginning when they first opened to recently, I can attest to its slow and steady decline from greatness to mediocrity. So looking for a new go to Persian food restaurant, I... More

Words cannot describe how wonderful the Persian food was. Excellent course after course. The ice cream dessert with honey and cinnamon was a delicious ending to a wonderful night.
