Just a few steps from Falls Park, Pomegranate on Main serves authentic Persian cuisine with exceptionally flavorful beef, chicken, lamb, shrimp, salmon and veggie kabobs and basmati rice entrees, stews and starters. The entrees are gluten-free and naturally healthy. Owner and entrepreneur Ali Saifi learned Southern hospitality in his native Iran long before settling in Greenville, S.C., and opened the restaurant as a gift to the community that celebrates the Upstate’s melting pot of cultures. Enjoy a bistro-style atmosphere in our main dining room or open-air patio with water wall.

    Service was exceptional and the food as always was very good. The only downer was they had sold out of the awesome Coconut Pie that the owner's wife makes herself. We'll definitely be back and order dessert first.

    My husband and I both loved our meal. We began with an appetizer of hummus with vegetables and pita. My husband’s entree was tenderloin kabob and I had the shrimp kabob. Both were absolutely delicious. The rice and roasted tomatoes were perfect too.

    This is a very sloppy restaurant. So called “deep cleaning” involves a guy going from table to table with a dirty cloth flipping the food left on the table by the last guests onto the floor and chairs.I showed the floor and my chair to the wait staff, who did nothing about it. No one cared! The food was bland, dry and over cooked. If you value your health, if you like Persian food, don’t go there. I wish I had taken some photos of the good on the chairs and floor so that you would be believe me, but I didn’t.

    Had an outstanding dinner last night. With the exception of their being out of two (2) eggplant appetizers at 7:45pm on a Saturday night, the food was very good, and the service… fantastic. Pomegranate never disappoints… highly recommend!

    Server not friendly. She was also not helpful with menu other than to the items I wanted not being available. She didn’t suggest alternative options, actually just stood there as we wasted her time. She mentioned nothing about the soup of the day until we tracked her down to ask about it. Waited longer than usual for our food. Huge disappointment especially since I had suggested we go there after having enjoyed a previous experience.

    This was my second time eating here. I did like the food, but the service was a little sparse, and it was very noisy. We went with friends and could hardly hear each other talk. There was live music going on, which I know is popular these days, but not ideal when you are trying to have a conversation.

    We like Pomegranate on Main. This is our second visit. The ambience and service are great. The menu offering is somewhat unique but a bit limited. It is a bit over priced for what it is, resulting in a mediocre value for the dining experience. For that reason, we likely would choose one of Greenville’s many other restaurants in the future.

    Two of us had the Torsh Kabob which was very good. Another friend had the wings which she said was also very good. The Mirza Ghasemi was OK. There was a little too much tomato and not enough eggplant in that dish. We took home a piece of coconut pie which was very good. This is a nice casual place with good food.
