    If you like to cook then you’ll be pleased with the North African/Persian influenced food, but probably think you could do better at home, but that’s not why you’re there. If you want a fun bite out at a beautiful waterfront restaurant go for the ambience & the view. A less predictable (and repetitive) upbeat music - very passé, more authentic and unique would make for a better overall experience. I’d return with out of town visitors for drinks & a snack.

    Three out of six of us ordered the swordfish with our original waitress then they came to our table with salmon for all three (without warning anyone that there was no swordfish). We didn’t see our original waitress again and they simply gave us the salmon because they didn’t get the shipment of swordfish. Not an issue if they told us there was none upfront but kind of unprofessional and honestly disappointing for what is supposed to be a “nice establishment.” Will not be going back, expected more for how much everything costs.

    The food at the restaurant is very good. However, mysteriously the restaurant was VERY smoky. I'm not certain if this is a permanent feature, but as a physician I do wonder/worry about the health of the people working in there day after day....

    We had a lovely mid week meal. Our server was knowledgeable, engaging and attentive. The food was served in good time. We ordered the halloumi and an eggplant dish. They were very good and of special note my friend ordered a side of gf bread that was fresh and delish . We split the roasted cauliflower and would order it again. Overall, very satisfying!

    I have an onion, garlic and dairy intolerance and told our server and she said they could accommodate it. I was brought my skewer plate and when the server (not our server but a guy helping out) handed it to me he said “onion and garlic free” and I started eating it and noticed two huge onions on the skewer. Informed our server and she brought it back to the chef and he rudely told her “well it’s not build your own skewer, we can’t accommodate it”. I witnessed the whole interaction and how rude he was to her. He offered her no solution and she was only able to offer me salad… overall a terrible experience. The manager did not come over to our table once yet went to every other table. I thought he would come over to apologize for the fact that I brought the plate and told it was onion and garlic free yet it was not. If I had a severe allergy to them what would have happened in that case? In the end I didn’t eat a thing and just paid for my drink. I have worked in restaurants and could not get over how badly this situation was handled. Luckily were able to head over to salt +ash which I can’t say enough good things about. The experience we had over there was incredible, they were amazing and very accommodating. I would not recommend darya to anyone.

    very pleasant dining experience. The food was delicious and well-presented. Servers always checked in, had good recommendations off the menu based on our descriptions and followed up about our thoughts on the dishes served. Will be dining there again
