Our home away from home! We absolutely love Pomegranate. Excellent service, clean healthy cuisine and lovely ambiance. The soups, appetizers, entrees and homemade desserts are the best. Difficult to call out just a few. Love them all. Thank you again, Zack, for the excellent service. Always nice to see a familiar face. And loved sitting out by the water wall....cozy on the inside even though it was raining on the outside. See you again soon.

Dinner was lovely. Had an invitation to meet for dinner. It was moderately busy for a Wednesday night and having a reservation is always a good idea. Plan to try for lunch in future.

Food was phenomenal as usual. Persian cuisine at its best. Noise level was higher than normal. Not sure why as nothing special was going on that night downtown. Always a great meal, great cocktails and decent wines.

Our group was seated right on time; service was attentive and prompt; food was great! I decided to go with the lamb medallions, lamb being something I don't eat frequently, but when in Rome...They were delicious, as was everyone else's meal.

Great lunch before a matinee at the Peace Center. Roast salmon on Med salad could not have been better.

The salad and hummus were good, but I really didn't care for the chedah wrap. I think more options on the lunch menu would help since I would have liked some lamb

Deliciously spiced dishes, warm & gracious service, a great place to take friends after a gallery opening. Pomegranate walnut dish and fragrant basmati was outstanding. We will return often to try more dishes. Thank you!

Amazing food with a fabulous ambiance. The appetizers are excellent. Waiter gave us good advice about how to combine the foods. I’m ready to go back today. I would try the stews if you haven’t been there. Ymmmm

We had a family gathering and needed a large, quiet restaurant with room for children to be children without bothering other quests. We were seated in the patio area and although it was cold and rainy outside, the patio had heat so it was perfect. The restaurant turned the music down so we could hear one another. We were a party of 10 adults and 4 children- everyone enjoyed their meals. Although there is not a child’s menu, the children enjoyed the chicken kabob and plain rice. Service was excellent!

The food was superb and our server was very attentive and professional. However, the host who "greeted" us (if one can call it that) acted as though we were an inconvenience, as though he was bothered to have to walk us to our table, to which he only pointed and didn't actually walk to all the way. Simply put, he was rude and unprofessional. Our overall initial impression was one of, "What have we gotten ourselves into with this reservation?" Again, the rest of our experience was exemplary, but Pomegranate's owner/management should pay closer attention to whom they leave as first customer contact, representing their establishment. A simple smile and a professional attitude go a long way.

I was hoping for something better but service and food were terrible. We didn’t receive our food for an hour and then they served me the wrong entree. She just said she put the order in wrong. And just said “Sorry.” The funny thing is there was no comp for my incorrect food. They Charged me for the entree I never received. Terrible customer service. I have owned businesses and they need to up their game with customer service. Sorry we won’t be back.

We have been there a number of times and have always enjoyed it very much. My wife especially likes Pomegranate very, very much. She loves it. It's right around the corner from where we live at 155 RiverPlace. We had an excellent waitress, Marcellus (?spelling). She was a delight. Happy Holidays.

We will be back.

Persian food at it's finest! Bademjan Stew with Chicken is outstanding. Chicken is melt-in-your-mouth tender and the stew spices are perfect middle eastern. Parking can be a challenge, so arrive early and circle the blocks to find street parking which is no cost.

We are regular customers. When I received the email about the 12th anniversary specials, I wanted to come and enjoy a meal since we had not been there in several months. I was very disappointed in the "special" as the beef was tough and had an odd taste. One would think that the quality of a "special" might be as good as the regular items which would encourage one to return! But my impression was that the quality was much less. The appetizers were good but the flat bread (I think they used to serve pita) was cut in odd tiny pieces. The citrus salad dressing did not taste fresh, my impression was that the orange juice used was old, canned or both. So, yes, I would recommend that a friend go but then I would hope that Pomegranate is having a good night. As you can tell, I am a foodie. I am an excellent cook and when I treat myself to a meal in a restaurant I have high expectations. Beef tenderloin with plain white rice and a grilled to almost black tomato is not a difficult meal to prepare.

Repeat diners at this establishment. For some reason, on this particular evening, the food (salmon) was very bland and overcooked.

I’ve had dinner here several times since moving to Greenville. Always a good experience. A different kind of restuarant that always delivers a good experience. The menu is a definite change from traditional cuisine, but you will not be disappointed.
