We were looking for something besides American food before our Escape Room, and decided to check this place out. If you enjoy Persian cuisine, Farside knows what they are doing. Dip sampler came with PLENTY of bread for our three choices, and all the entrees...More

We both enjoyed the Lamb shank with rice and fava beans and we look forward to returning again. Too bad the location is so hidden. I will spread the word.

We went here for a late lunch and boy was it delicious. The food is made of high quality sources, so the bill will be pricey for most (ours was $104 for 2 people after tip). The atmosphere is nice, dining room small but plenty...More

Our experience at Farside Bistro was exceptional! The host treated like us like a guest in their home rather that a customer! My Zereshkpolo tasted homemade with delicious berries. The Persian ice cream with Baghalva is to die for.

Baklava and the spiced ice cream is amazing. The service is very friendly at this family run business. You need to like tumeric if you want to eat a meal. The desserts are light and delicious on the palate.

We tried the lamb shank, the rack of lamb, baba ganoush, hummus, yogurt, pasta, and it was all awesome. If you don’t eat here, your loss.
