The ambience was wonderful as we were seated next to the waterfall. Food was solid, but nothing special. Overpriced. We would come back to try a different dish, however. Cocktails and wine we ordered were excellent, our server did a nice job answering our questions and pairing wine to our entrees.

Pomegranate is always a great experience for us! Their wraps are out of this world. We always get either a glass of wine or they're wonderful hot Persian Tea. This is our go-to place for lunch and for dinner. They have wonderful vegetarian options too.

Was a little disappointed there were no lamb offerings on the luncheon menu, which was the main reason to visit the restaurant. The waitress got 2 out of 4 orders wrong. The food was tasty.

Pomegranate on Main has THE best salmon in all of Greenville! Hubby and I had a lovely table on the patio (very comfortable even though it was quite warm outside). We love how Pomegranate begins your dining experience: warm pita squares served with butter, feta, radishes and mint - so French! Hubby and I both ordered the Roasted Salmon with Cranberry Rice and it was perfectly cooked (his, med. rare; mine, med.). I decided to try the recommended wine (Verezano?) and it was yummy! A very tasty evening.

The patio s such a pleasant place to dine. Our pregnant guest asked for a mock tail And the bartender came out and had a little sidebar chat with her and came up with an invention that she really enjoyed. I thought that was above and beyond and very gracious. I will say this time my kabob was a little dry and overcooked and my rice was a little too dry also but the flavors were there and I love the dried sumac at the table. I did ask for fresh little dishes of sumac because the ones on the table were left over from previous guests and they were happy to accommodate.

A girlfriend and I had lunch at Pomergrante on Tuesday and it was excellent, as usual. She had the Signature Salad and was extremely pleased with the freshness of the greens and the zippy dressing. I ordered the Roasted Salmon (med.) with the Cranberry Rice - both were perfect. Pomegranate is THE best restaurant in town for fresh salmon. TJ was attentive and make lunch on the patio perfect.

Not great. Service was very good, no complaints there! But was surprised at how mediocre the food was, considering all the positive reviews. Is somebody being paid to write some boost reviews? Anyway, went on a Saturday for dinner and it wasn't very busy. Some opportunities for growth on the food:
- Didn't understand the point of the little plate that comes out with every meal. Unsalted butter? Two radishes? A single cube of feta? Not sure what the aim is here.
- Pita wasn't great. This is such a missed opportunity!
- Too much mint! Mint here, mint there. Mint replaced the curly parsley garnish from yester-year.
- Doesn't Persian rice have the crusty part? The tahdig, or whatever it is? I feel like this would be such a big hit with customers. Unfortunately here, the rice was your average rice.
- Got the vegetarian mushroom stew entree; it was very sweet. Maybe this is how it's supposed to be? Not sure.
- Was kind of hoping to see sabzi on the menu. Maybe the chef feels that it is more of a lunch item. Anyway, imo that would be cool.
That's pretty much it! It's not that anything was bad, it's just that the price and ratings suggest that you are getting something great. I did not find this to be the case.

Food is tasty and wonderfully presented. My family has both gluten and lactose free requirements, and Pomergranate on Main via OpenTable's comments section was alerted to our requirements, and satisfied every member of my party. We will return to this restaurant often.

This was the first time I have ever had poor service at Pomegranates. I don’t know if there was a shortage of help or not, but our dinner came pretty quickly and after that it went downhill. There was about 35 minutes between the en if dinner and any dessert offerings. It took ages minutes for dessert and the it was another 30-40 minutes before he came with our checks and that was after we asked someone to send him over. After the credit cards and checks were prepared a member of our group had to carry them to our server after she found him. Then there was a period of about 15 minutes before we got those back. All in all, our dinner took from 6:30 until 8:55 to get done. I don’t mind lingering a bit after dinner but this was absurd. I hate it too because I live their food but the wait kinda spoiled it.

We both thought the chicken kebab (two different marinades) was superb and so was the perfectly cooked saffron basmati rice. My only suggestion is, on the lovely complimentary plate to pile on some slices of pita, we found an abundance of peppermint, a small pat of butter, and a tiny piece of feta cheese--a bit like a small sugar cube, which provided only tiny bits for two bites each. Consider increasing it to at least twice what you're giving diners now.

Zack E may have been the best server we've ever had! He provided unparalleled service that far exceeded our expectations; he was on top of it, provided excellent wine recommendations and menu-descriptions, and he exuded genuine warmth and positivity that ensured a PHENOMENAL dining experience! We strongly recommend Zack E, and highly recommend leaving him BIG tips! :)
