Service With a Smile
As always, Pomegranate delivered great food and service. Our waitress may have been a little too attentive, but we had an early dinner, so she didn't have many other tables to worry about.

A family favorite
The mint, cheese and butter complementary plate, with fresh warm bread is always a wonderful way to start a meal. This is helped by the Pommegranite Martini (dangerously easy to drink). The lamb is particularly good, although the sauce - though good - doesn't seem necessary. The rice seemed a wee bit dry this time, but still a very enjoyable meal.

Pomegranate on Main was our first dining experience in Greenville. We sat on the patio--beautiful with water feature and white lights. The restaurant is right in the middle of the amazing downtown Greenville--super location, delicious food & outstanding service. They seemed to have many regular customers as the owner was going around to tables and addressing people by name. Great vibe & delicious food in what appears to be a wonderful little city.

I learned a lot about Persian culture and cooking when I ate at Pomegranate. The food is authentic and is served with interesting condiments. I have been there for both lunch and dinner and found the food to be very good on both occasions. The grilled salmon is wonderful.

Great Food in a Great Location!
For an unbeatable dinning experience, we highly recommend Pomegranate on Main in downtown Greenville. Located directly across from Fall Park Bridge you have a nice dinning experience with easy access to a casual or romantic walk along the Falls. Optonal outdoor seating is avaialble for those who enjoy the fresh air.

We've eaten both indoors and
We've eaten both indoors and on the patio, and either is wonderful. We were fortunate to hit a beautiful evening on the patio, and everything was great. The food, our server, and the ambiance! Great place to keep on your list when you visit Greenville!

Hello...On Mothers Day 2013
Hello...On Mothers Day 2013 my husband made reservations for us, including my 12 year old son, to have lunch. I have always loved Pomegranate, but this was my son's first time coming. For lunch he had the Chinjeh wrap. He loved it! Every year for birthdays we give the kids the option of going to dinner ANYWHERE they want to go....he chose Pomegranate. He was a little disappointed that the wrap was not on the dinner menu, so he opted for the shrimp kabob instead and loved it! I wish that the wrap could have been accommodated by special request, since I know the meat is already prepared, but he enjoyed his birthday dinner nontheless. (P.S. we did ask the server if you could make the wrap on special request, and he said no.)

Pomegranate on main was all
Pomegranate on main was all around a great experience.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
they know how to cook!
Had the lamb kabob and it was expertly prepared--just right. We were there on a Monday so it was quiet, although they were busy enough. I thought the pomegranate martini was too sweet, but enjoyed it ok. Would return
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for family and friends
We gathered seven at Pomegranate midafternoon on Saturday. Appetizers of hummus and kashk bademjan were wonderful. The entrees of grilled chicken salads and chicken wraps were good. Service was acceptable if not attentive. Outdoor seating area is fabulous.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yummy For Lunch!
We enjoyed our lunch very much! The outside dining area was delightful and welcoming. Our waitress was friendly and informative. We were not familar with Persian food so her suggestions were helpful. We were served as an appetizer a Persian dish with pita wedges, butter, feta cheese, fresh mint leaves and raw radishes. I must admit I not too keen on mint or radishes but I assembled the items onto the pita wedge as instructed...and it turned out to be extremely yummy and refreshing. We also ordered the hummas as a starter..can't go wrong there...and followed it up with a Chinjeh wrap. Outstanding! We'll definately go back!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Meal, Drink, & Experience
Everything was great - I personally would like to see a slight increase in portion size for the price that we paid. But I have nothing negative to comment with regard to anything else.
I will be dinning again.

Great Persian Food
A great way to get a taste of Persia. Nice location, convenient to Falls Park, Main Street, and the West End. The food was tasty and the presentation wall done well. Good wine selection. The "Tour for Two" is a good way to sample different foods and flavors. High ceilings and intimate seating. Highly recommended.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never a disappointment!
Pomegranate is always a good choice. Great selection of Persian foods ..... Quality and taste is exceptional.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent and above average
We dined with friends...three lamb dishes and one chicken, all were tasty and prepared properly. We were initially seated in the outside area where it was loud due to the nearby band on the street (7.4). We were promptly re-seated at an inside table which was much quieter. Starters of hummus and Kashk Bademjan were excellent. Cocktails and wine were great and reasonably priced.
Desserts were limited due to holiday but it was a great meal with very nice service. Recommend.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A unique dining experience!
For out of the ordinary menu choices and a chance to broaden your palate choose Pomegranates! Everything was de-lish!!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a wonderful Persian
This is a wonderful Persian restaurant which sits on the uphill side of the Reedy River in Downtown Greenville. It is busier at night but a should be considered for lunch, too . There are other more popular spots for meals , but this is a quiet little gem. The waiter described the dishes in detail and explained the way to eat them. Wonderful flavors.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh Fabulous Food
My wife had the chicken stew and I had the salmon. As promised by our server, both dishes were excellent and had a Middle Eastern flair. Not overly spicy, but enough to make the dishes notable and special. Nice wine and beer list as well. Very attentive service and a great view from outdoors on a pretty night!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have eaten at this restaurant more than a dozen times. One of my absolute FAVORITE restaurants in the world. I have since moved away from Greenville and I still go back to eat at this restaurant at least twice a year. The service could be horrible but the food is so good I wouldn't care! The only thing I've seen change over the years is that they do tend to "nickle and dime" food a bit more than they did. For example, they used to bring you as much bread as you needed to finish your hummus but now they charge you for more than one basket of pita bread and the basket has a measly 4 pieces in it. Overall, food is amazing and fresh and I wish they would open one of these in Charlotte, NC!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This week wa my 4th2 visit to pomegranate on main. Every visit was eith a small group...each visit was great! This last visit was the best! Our waiter was fabulous. He had great suggestions, we did not wait long for food, drinks, check. The outside and inside seating is great! One of our favorite places to go!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I came down to Greenville for a show on Thursday & this was recommended by a friend. First and foremost..the service was excellent! Austin was our waiter & he was so helpful with the menu & with recommendations on how to get the full experience! The food was amazing, and I recommend this place to anyone!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
New Favorite For Us
My wife and I dined at Pomegranate this week with two other couples. This was a first time visit for us and the food and service were terrific. A new Greenville favorite for for us. Our waiter was most knowledgeable which made the experience enjoyable.

This restaurant is 110 miles
This restaurant is 110 miles from home, needless to say we don't get here very often, but it's always worth the trip. We were a party of 5 having an early dinner; restaurant was relatively empty. The entrees were very good (lamb and chicken kabobs). Chicken a bit drier than I remembered. We lucked out with 1/2 price wines on Wednesday; an Albarino and Cali cab for $31. This would have been a 5 star evening if our our overachieving server had dialed it back a notch. While she was professional, efficient (maybe a bit too much), and knowledgeable, we were feeling like we were being processed instead of served. For a different, flavorful cuisine, Pomegranate is the perfect solution.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the menu!!
I'm. Easy about the menu And Persian cuisine here. My only complaint this visit was the chicken kabob was a bit dry. Everything else was stellar!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I REALLY ENJOYED THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE OWNER, ALI, CAME AND CHATTED WITH US WHILE WE DINED. THE ENTIRE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL AND THE FOOD IS ALWAYS STELLAR. I HAD THE ROASTED SALMON AND MY FRIEND HAD THE LAMB. TO DIE FOR! YOU MUST GO TO POMEGRANATE ON MAIN!!!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
There were four of us and we got the Tour de Persia. You can't go wrong with this dish, a taste of everything. Food was amazing and service was great!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pomegranate on Main is a wonderful find. The food is well-prepared and he presented. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable without being intrusive. The view out the front windows shows a vibrant and exciting neighborhood atmosphere. I would like to come again for dinner, soon.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finally a restaurant where all of the entrees are gluten free. We sampled the lamb kabob, lamb shank, chicken kabob and beef torsh kabob and it was all outstanding, especially the cranberry rice and the lentil rice. Only wish the bread basket could've been gluten free too. Those that were dining that are not gluten free said the bread was delicious, I have to take their word for it. Service was great and the staff even show you how to eat the dish in the traditional manner.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
2nd time as good as the 1st
This was our 2nd visit and we were extremely satisfied yet again. Great food.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The is one of favorites
My husband and I love this place as the food is good and very healthy. We particularly enjoy the flat bread, feta and fresh mint leaves served to all. Tried the owner's wife's triple chocolate cake garnished with frozen pomegranate seeds which was delicious.
My husband took some of his French colleagues to this restaurant and all were impressed with both the food and the atmosphere.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Middle Eastern Food at Its Best
The food here is delicious. Tender meats marinated in unusual but scrumptious flavors and served with basmati rice make for some of the best eating in Greenville. After experiencing Pomegranate on Main several times, I decided Middle Eastern cuisine is one of my favorites. However, I tried a Middle Eastern restaurant in Atlanta and found it to be nowhere near as good as the fare at Pomegranate on Main. So, I have concluded that Pomegranate on Main is truly a treasure!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was over the top! Also, their special pomegranate martini is a must ... outstanding!
9/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Perfect for Business Lunch
Met two professionals for a business lunch. Sat outside. Everything was excellent. Plan on returning for future business lunches.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my daughter here for her 21st birthday and this place didn't disappoint! Superb, welcoming service from host to bartender to waiter and owner. Atmosphere was upscale and food was intriguing, delicious and fairly priced. I want to go back next time I have something to celebrate or even if I just want to unwind.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great. The waiter was really good and gave my and I information on the food and restaurant. My husband and I can't wait to go back. Thanks for making our anniversary special.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
amazing food but small portions
Food is outstanding and so unique -- I don't know of any other Persian restaurants around here. Get the pomegranate Fesinjun sauce. The only problem is the (dinner) portions are very small, more like lunch portions or even smaller. I ordered the chicken stew, and it was 5 small chunks of chicken in sauce. For the price, and for dinner, I expected more.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable dining experience.
Very enjoyable dining experience. Interesting and delicious food. Great hummus and melt in your mouth
scallops.Owner approached our table several times during the evening and was warm and helpful in a
truly sincere manner.
Thank you for bringing hospitality and integrity to dining!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Do not miss this!
If you're in Greenville, make sure you eat at Pomagranate!! The food was spectacular, the outside courtyard, with its wall of water fountain added special charm, and the waitstaff was friendly and knowledgable.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't miss it
Absolute wonderful gem that I did not expect to find in a small town. We got a trio of starters--all good Grilled veggies on the side were great. And the Chicken Pomegranate and Walnut Stew is a must-order. Music outside was terrific, and the wait-staff couldn't have been more informative and nice. And did I mention half-price bottle night (where even the full prices were reasonable)?
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The drinks were good, but the food was outstanding. We were ecstatic to find a great restaurant in a beautiful small city. The Service matched the food as outstanding. The people were friendly, the table was ready when we walked in an the waiter was immediately there to take drink orders, and even assisted with the order recommendations. The food arrived hot and looked very appetizing. We give this experience top stars and will return.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A delightful experience!
The Persian elegance and excellence at Pomegranate on Main are not to be missed. Our first visit was lovely from greeting, to special table, to professional and knowledgeable server, to each and every course. We savored each morsel and appreciated the preparation and presentation. The Poma Royale was great. We will be visiting again soon. Thank you, Pomegranate on Main, for an enjoyable dining experience.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ali Saifi was so nice and polite. Person to person contact with one's customer is rear now a days.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
food and service were outstanding to a moderate price
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
New taste experience
First time for us to this restaurant. Very good meal. Started with hummus (2 kinds) and flat bread and cheese, butter and veggies. We had lamb and beef. The entrees were great. Never had Persian food before. They came with a rice that you seasoned yourself with a mix from the table. Excellent! Dessert was Persian tea. Fun experience! Definitely recommend.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Probably one of the best meals we have ever had here. If you see scallops on the menu, get them. I had scallops and lamb which was awesome. My wife had all scallops which she loved too. Don't let the restaurant concept fool you or turn you off. Its not much different then what you may be used to and it really is worth it.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, nice place
I haven't liked mediterranean food in the past but a friend suggested this so I went along. Was pleasantly surprised. The hummus was very good and kabobs I had were excellent. Place was nice, not over hyped, enough people in there so it was lively, but not packed and loud. Nice little bar. Service was good too. Would recommend it.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely a Dining List Keeper
We had not sampled Persian cuisine before. Our server provided all the info and tips we needed to have a wonderful experience. This spot has just the right balance of energy yet peace and quiet at individual tables to allow conversation. Food was outstanding- meat cuts lean and excellent; spices and sauces were creative and tasty. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. We will definitely return on our next visit to Greenville.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
As usual a great experience!
This is a favorite. Always good service and good food. During the warmer months the outoor area is really nice with a water wall and frequently a solo artist or DJ.
