    My husband and I had a lovely lunch at this charming restaurant. We ordered a hummus appetizer and the kitchen sent out a beautiful complimentary platter of butter, feta cheese, radishes and pita bread along with mint leaves. This is what everyone receives! How nice. Lunch was delicious. I had the eggplant dish and my husband had the vegetarian stew that was almost like a Persian ratatouille. Both were perfect. This place is a real find and the food and service never disappoint.

    We had some time to kill in Greenville so we walked Main Street looking at menus for dinner on a Saturday night. Pomegranate on Main caught our eye due to the lamb and the vegetarian options. No problem making a reservation and they were able to seat us on time. Service was good but a food took a little too much time to be served. Food itself was great. We had the hummus and spinach appetizers which are recommended. Two of us had lamb kabobs and one had a vegetarian eggplant stew. All three were impressed with the food and we will return.

    At Pomegranate, you can learn a bit about Persian culture while enjoying delicious and exotic flavors. My shrimp kabob was so flavorful and the dill and lima basmati rice with roasted tomato was excellent! The ambiance is relaxing, and with parking directly across the street, this restaurant is the total package for a night out with friends.

    Ambiance was nice-quiet, lit nicely, bar & wine list were good. Food was very nice, and portions were appropriate sized. Noise level was perfect for having intimate conversation. Staff were friendly, attentive without hovering and knowledgeable about the menu. Overall, a nice place and one I will visit again!

    Our daughter has recently moved to Greenville and we are trying a different restaurant every time we visit. Pomegranate on Main was recommended by someone in her office so we decided to try it. Fantastic was the only thing we all could say as we left after dinner. We started with the signature Pomegranete Martinis and ordered various Kabobs with cranberry rice so we could share. Definitely somewhere we will return and would recommend to anyone else looking for a special dining experience.

    Had a great time.. The food was great. I went there for my anniversary dinner. We got the chahr which you choose any four samplers.. We then got a salad.. For our entries we chose a Vegetarian Bademjan Stew and Vegetarian Fesenjan Stew.. I prefered the Bademjan stew.. We also tried had the pomegrante and pumpkin martini they had to much alcohol for my taste. But other than that service was great.

    We are always pleased to find good local ethnic fare, and the Persian cuisine at Pomegranate did not disappoint. If you enjoy Mediterranean, Greek, or Middle Eastern cuisine it is worth a try. My wife and I split a meal, a starter, and a dessert; and we left satisfied with no leftovers, not overstuffed, and with a reasonable bill!

    Food and service was excellent. Our waiter Zack was great let us enjoy our conversation and meals while still keeping our bevrages full and had such a pleasant personality. We enjoyed appetizers to dessert without feeling rushed. It was a beautiful night for June and the dinner complemented the beautiful night. The hostess sat us in a very small space/ table although there was other seating available. After we asked to be seated somewhere different the manager was very helpful finding us an alternative seating arrangement which made the night very pleasant.

    As a vegetarian, I was please with the 2 appetizers (hummus and spinach). However, I came for one of the interesting vegetarian entrees, but neither of the 2 were available. So I ordered the grilled shrimp with rice and tomato dish. The shrimp were good, the rice tasted excellent but was dry. It was not quite enough to eat, so I am glad we ordered 2 appetizers. $24 for 6 or 7 shrimp was too expensive for me to return. Had the restaurant had the unusual vegetarian stews, I am sure I would have been pleased.

    Hummus is great. Entree was decent. The meat is cooked well but not real crazy about the rice. It was a Tuesday night and we didn't get there til about 8:20. But the service was slow (I wanted more wine but the waitress disappeared). She was friendly though. Not really blown away by it or anything but the atmosphere is very nice. There is a nice little outdoor patio area.
