There were a lot of things going against this place when we went including a rice cooker that was making an annoying beep every three minutes or so-- a family with a couple of kids who were too busy having their own discussion about their cage free handmade shoes to notice that their kids were running amok in the small dining room ar ... read more

Decent for a local place. We had the falafel appetizer, which was great, and split one of their combo platters, which was enough for two lightish eaters. The chicken was excellent, beef was ok, I liked the lamb (I usually don't), rice was nothing to write home about. The baklava was tube shaped and not the usual big hunk of nuts, pas ... read more

The Grill is a great spot and hidden gem right off Moody Street. Always fresh, every dish has been prepared with care and it shows. Brought a Syrian friend here and he said it's the best he's had in the US. One of my favorite restaurants.

A great low key mediterannean spot on Moody St. One of my favorite restaurants on the street...the prices are also very fair. I just got back from a deployment in the Middle East and it's great to have a local spot to satisfy the cravings.

Came with 16 people, and staff couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. Food very tasty and good value. Would definitely return. A great place for pre- or post-Embassy movie.

What a great find. The food was incredible and the service friendly and warm. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I travel throughout the Middle East and it was really authentic.

One of the Best Mediterranean restaurants I've been to and I travel throughout the Middle East.  Great service and charming atmosphere. We started with the mezze appetizer that was fresh and really tasty. The rest of our meal was equally yummy.  Nixon was warm and welcoming.  Will definitely go again.  Highly recommend.

Ristorante Iraniano
Praticamente in Moody street, ottimo ristorante con specialità persiane, spezie usate con sapienza senza appesantire anzi esaltando gli aromi e il gusto dei cibi. Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. Consigliatissimo a chi per una volta vuole provare una cucina orientale poco conosciuta.

This place is really underrated. We have been here a few times and their hot dishes were all great for a very reasonable price. I haven't tried their salads and most of their appetizers and that is why I am giving them a four star. Plus, the manager Jeffrey is so nice.

We picked this place almost at random. The name suggest an American grill, but the reality is absolutely delicious and plentiful Mediterranean food. Perhaps the outside sign ("The Grill") was inherited from a prior tenant. They put all their effort into the food, not so much into the decor. Well worth the trip. As soon as we sta ... read more

Middle Eastern fare that was just delicious. We four shared the appetizers with pita bread which was so good I could easily have made a meal of it. I had the lamb shish kabob which was perfectly prepared. Each of us commented that we'd definitely be back.

Decent restaurant, but nothing incredible. The Grill is located off the main strip of Moody Street and doesn't get much traffic, so a good place to try on busy evenings.

I don't always review restaurants, but when I do, you know that they're good.  Always go for their Kashk Bademjan (an eggplant dip like concoction).  Must have.They're chicken Koobideh was surprisingly flavorful.  And their rice was mixed with real safron, a real treat. This time I got the beef shish kabob.  Wow,  'nuff said.
