    We dine at Pom's Signature about 3 times a month. The food is creative and delicious every time. Pom is a perfectionist when it comes to his dishes. He takes a lot of pride in his thai creations. Every time we go we hear other tables raving about their food. We have been going there for years and it is hands down our favorite restaurant in Jacksonville!

    Ate here with my elderly mother on a Thursday evening. We were very pleased with our service and orders. There were no noticeable gaps in the experience. The food flowed seamlessly. My only warning to the public is that this is a place you want to dine at for the preparation and taste of the food not for quantity. The mahi was as delicately flaky as any I have ever had. My Thai shrimp appetizer was fortunately Thai inspired in the seasoning without being overpoweringly hot as it paired we the bottle of Ramey Chardonnay. The Grand Marinier souffle was a wonderful way to end the evening. A very thoughtful presentation as it was delivered hot and 'puffed up' ( no deflation here!).

    Poms is one of the VERY best restaurants in Jacksonville, and one of the best kept secrets in town! We dine there a couple of times a month, and over the past 2-3 years Chef Pom has not disappointed. The quality, preparation, presentation, and the fantastic flavors of his food work together beautifully for a delicious gourmet meal. Polo and Gina are very attentive servers, and Manny always has our wine chilled just right when we arrive. We highly recommend Poms Signature Restaurant for a meal and evening you won't forget! We regularly recommend Poms to all our friends.

    My wife and I enjoyed dinner at POM's on Saturday evening, 10/25/14. Longtime members of The International Wine and Food Society, we are always on the lookout for interesting restaurants. The dining experience at POM's more than met our expectations. The menu is described as Asian fusion. However, in my opinion, this term in no way does the food justice. To me the main influence was French with overtones of Southeast Asia, served with finesse in a quietly elegant setting. One could easily imagine themselves dining out in Saigon during the height of its French Colonial period. Adding to the ambiance was Polo, our waiter for the evening, who provided excellent service.

    As a semi retired bachelor two of the things that I still enjoy the most are travel, great food and fine wine. When I'm in a new area I usually trust Open Table for the best options and the POM Restaurant more than filled my expectations. From the time I walked in and the most beautiful Gina arranged my table to Paulo who served me for the next 2.5 hours the evening could not of been better. Of your looking for a very special night out or just a fantastic dinner this is a place you should put 1st on your list. I'll be back for sure..

    Each time we visit, we come away saying this is one of Jacksonville's dining gems. Absolutely every aspect is excellent. How often does that happen? The menu has so much variety it's hard to choose. We asked Polo, who serves as maître d' and server and sommelier. Tell him what you like; he'll suggest one or two items, and you'll be well pleased. Everything is very fresh, the background music and lighting are just right, and we appreciate the variety on the wine list. It's a relaxing and fulfilling experience to go to this fine restaurant!

    My wife and I had dinner at Pom's on 10/16/14 and the experience was outstanding and the food and wine list were excellent and varied. Pom has been involved in many restaurants in Jax but this is by far his crowning achievement. It is a great setting for a special occasion but also nice for a great dinner with friends. Our server, Polo, was both informed and entertaining. He was excellent and allowed the evening to flow naturally without unnecessary interruption. I will ask for him personally when we return which will be often. Ray and Maria Gyarmathy

    We enjoyed a Saturday dinner at Pom's. Asian Fusion provides a different twist to run of the mill steaks, chicken or fish places. The appetizer selection is excellent, we tried Mussels in a light curry broth, Calamari and Shrimp with a sweet pepper sauce, Rack of lamb lollipops and a golden beet salad. Closed our meal out with a Gran Marnier Souffle. Food was innovative, well prepared and great tasting. the Wines by the glass presented a very reasonable and well thought out selection. Service professional and non intrusive.

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Spicy Green curry seafood and whole snapper were both incredible - the best sauces you can imagine. We ordered both the dessert specials and both were outstanding - a souffle and a molten chocolate cake. They were out of our first choice for wine but offered a nice substitute. Service was very good and attentive if lacking in a couple of fine points such as not offering fresh wine glasses with our second bottle and mixing new with old without asking. And the dessert which was ordered early to allow for preparation time arrived unexpectedly before everyone had finished their entree. But the exquisite flavors more than made up for that!

    Our meal at Poms was outstanding and I can't wait to go back! Coming from Atlanta where there are a lot of great restaurants, finding Poms makes up for the lack of great restaurants in this area. I had the Grilled Seafood with spicy green curry sauce and my husband had the Duck, both were outstanding!!! I highly recommend Poms to everyone, especially if you're a Thai fanatic like me.

    The food was average, the atmosphere was acceptable. Overpriced. Our waiter seemed to be unsure of himself. He did not have a strong knowledge of the menu or how the food was prepared. There was a special dessert that required 30 minutes preparation time that we were not made aware of until we ordered our meal.

    Pom's is a great place to go for a very good dining experience. The restaurant is attractive and contains two small, attractively decorated rooms making it feel very intimate. The menu has something for everyone ( fish, chicken , beef, duck) but it is all done well. The service is generally good but can be slow at times. The $25 corkage charge is very high. Give it a try.

Pom's is in the Top Two of my favorite dining experiences around Jacksonville/St Augustine. Whether appetizers, main entrees, dessert or wine, everything had a distinctive, delicious tatse. I expect that every entree offers such a delight. This restaurant invites you to experience the full range of epicurean adventures under the tutelage of world-class waiter Polo. Trust him and your instincts and you are guaranteed a special night. This is an unique restaurant offering a distinct experience. Enjoy. We will return.

    What a find!! From Polo and his friendly attentive manner to the quality and taste of the dishes. Outstanding!! Unless you know the name and the location, it is unlikely you would come across this wonderful find. It is tucked behind III Forks among a few other shops and restaurants on a small brick through way. Similar to some of the very high end boutique restaurants in NYC, it was small and intimate. The services were very well timed, friendly, and well above average compared to most in the area. I recommend allowing Polo to assist with your choices. We will definitely return to try more dishes. Opt for the soufflé desert at the beginning of your meal to allow for preparation and timing. You will not be disappointed!!

    Dinner at Pom's was just superb, again! Our appetizers of lamb chops and spring roll were a great start, and Crying Tiger is always perfect. Our entrees of Mayport Curry Shrimp and Green Curry Seafood were just stellar! One of us requested a '4' on spice level and the other requested 'normal' spice and each came out exactly as we wanted. Creme Brulee for dessert is just one of the delicious ways to end a beautifully presented, gourmet meal. Pom is an outstanding chef and he has an excellent staff. We highly recommend going to this jewel of a restaurant! You will become repeat customers if you do!

    Nothing ordinary about Pom's. The staff is knowledgeable and the wine expert is a personal friend. He chooses the wines carefully and fairly prices them. A special bottle from home? Corkage is reasonable. Go because the food prepared in such a unique way! Pom uses herbs & spices in such a way that creates a one of a kind dish whether it is a soup, salad, appetizer or main course. The menu varies from time to time. Pom chooses only the best & freshest from the markets. We have a Vegan in our group and he will create a special meal for her each time. And don't be surprised when Pom, himself, come to your table during your dining experience to check in and say "Hello". Once people discover this gem, most return again and again!

    There is no question that Pom's is a world-class restaurant that happens to be located in Jacksonville, Florida. I have tried most items on the menu and they have all been fantastic. His Pad Thai and Rama Thai are as good or better than you can get in Thailand. They are not listed on the menu, but if he has the ingredients he will always make them for you. The short ribs, duck, and trout are impossible to beat. The wine list is great. You cannot go wrong here. Pom is a genius in the kitchen and if you ask he will certainly stop by your table to say hello.

    My wife and I recently visited Pom's for the first time and had a wonderful experience. Paulo, our server, took excellent care of us and made some great menu recommendations. The food was outstanding in both taste and presentation. We shared a few appetizers (Tom Tum Soup, Lamb Lollipops, Scallops) and split an entrée (Basil Magnifique) – all were superb. The dining experience easily ranks up there with Matthew's and Medure's. If you want to try some tasty new flavors in an upscale atmosphere, you cannot go wrong dining at Pom's!
