Restaurant details
Reviewed November 25, 2017

We love Persian food so whenever we visit California we always go for Persian food. This restaurant was recommended to us by an Iranian friend of a friend... It lived up to its recommendations. Our server, Sarina was very helpful in selecting menu items.We enjoyed great shiraz vine from Iran with our late lunch. Everything was delicious-from lamb shank in minty spinach sauce to the deep fried fish w/rice pilaf with dates to the chicken . Ice cream ended the great meal.

The vegetarian "stew" dishes were fabulous! You need to remember to say you want the vegetarian version of the stews, but even when we forgot, they replaced our dish quickly with no complaint and no charge either! very nice service! The hummus was also delicious, as were the salads.

The lunch menu is in the $11-13 range and neither of us big men could finish it. I just gave up on the rice after a while, which was exceptional.
I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb shank that was cooked in the ghormeh sabzi, which is a puréed vegetable mixture that has been cooked for hours. The lamb shank was extremely tender and very little fat. Free parking in the rear.

Flame serves tasty Mediterranean food, meat on skewers, rice, salad. The portions were large, the waiters tried to be attentive, it was crowded on New Years Day. I had lamb stew with rice. Very good.

The food at Flame is excellent and they give you plenty of it and, after all, that is the most important thing for a restaurant. I wish the service was as good as the food. We had a Holiday Dinner Party in a private room. The flatbread and accompaniments did not arrive for 30 minutes which put our entire dinner event behind schedule. The room was nice, spacious and had plenty of area for people to put gifts and personal items, however, we had no music of any kind in the room and had to use a phone in the middle of the table for Christmas music. (I know its a Persian restaurant but for a private event, I think we should have had an option for Christmas music or at least some music. The quiet put a damper on festivities). The dessert is honey-based and EXTREMELY sweet. Most of the guests were not able to eat it. There should have been another option. Also, we thought the dinner was all coordinated in advance but the manager did not have any notes of our special orders and we got different information regarding how to pay the valet for the group event. Overall, they were disorganized. The food was great but they need to get it together. Other restaurants have printed menus specific to our dinner event and been far more helpful in setting up.
