Another delightful evening on the patio in downtown G’ville with friends from out of town. Great service and dinners all around. My husband left his charge card and staff called just after we left—we LOVE Pomagrante!!!

Finding Persian food is challenging, so finding great Persian food is a real treat. Not only is the food delicious but the atmosphere is comfortably modern.

My first visit to Pomegranate. Really enjoyed it. Went on a busy downtown weekend. Made reservations. Sat right on time. Server was great!! Ordered the hummus sampler trio. All was good. Then had lemon chicken kabab and grilled lamb. Very good. The rice was also awesome. Will be going again.

Excellent food, especially lamb dishes. Great Pomegranate Martini. Eat on side patio, plenty of room. Attentive and courteous waitress. Has been a favorite for several years.

Pomegranate also has a good location on south main, close to many other venues and fine for people watching.

We made reservations for a party of 8 to celebrate my mother’s 85th birthday. We were given a lovely and comfortable round table in the window, and when seated, were surprised with special menus commemorating her special day! After our amazing dinner my mother was then celebrated with her choice of dessert! While we have always enjoyed our lunch and dinner experiences at Pomegranate, their special attention on the day of our celebration garners a rating of exceptional plus!!

We always forget to take pictures! We had an appetizer due that was delicious. I went for the lamb medallions, he had the shish kabob. The kabobs where cooked perfectly with a generous portion of grilled vegetables amd rice. The lamb had great flavor but was over cooked (we requested medium), the rice was very good. We’ll definitely be back to try more.

Dine outside if you can. Or when a large party of loud millennials are not dining. The restaurant does not have any sound control features and general conversations are amplified.
Food was great.

We were here with family who had never been to Pomegranate before. They were just thrilled with the whole experience. All of our meals were delicious and our server was informative and friendly. The ice cream(s) - (ok we ordered both) - for dessert were out of this world. We love this restaurant.

Delicious food and very quaint outdoor patio atmosphere. Our server, Hope, explained the entrees well, and how best to mix/eat them. The complimentary Persian Breakfast appetizer was unique and tastey. Delightful experience, highly recommend!

My husband and I went to Pomegranate on Main for a date night. We were a little disappointed that a table wasn’t available on the patio, but the inside dining area was lovely, even if the tables are a bit close. Our appetizer of hummus with bread, feta, mint, radishes, and unsalted butter was the perfect blend of flavors. I ordered the lamb medallions and my husband ordered the chicken and shrimp. Both came with basmati rice and a grilled tomato, which our server recommended we blend with the rice. She was right! The portions were generous and the presentation was lovely. A few pieces of my lamb were a little tough — overcooked — but overall it was a delicious dinner and we plan to return. Staff was friendly and attentive, and the Italian red wine I ordered with my dinner perfectly complemented the meal. Prices were fair for the quality and portions of food. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends on the patio of Pomergranate on Main last evening. We started Pomergranate Mules (both gentlemen), Pinot Grigio (Slovenia; me) and a hot tea (other lady) and with a mix of appetizers: Mast Khiyar, Mast Mousir and Hummus. Our friends ordered the Lamb Shank (he) and Pomegranate Stew (beef, she), Roasted Salmon (my hubby) and I ordered the Shrimp Kabob. All appetizers and entrees were wonderful - such great flavor. We passed on dessert. An excellent restaurant and service.

This is my go to restaurant for special occasions and for out-of-state company that comes to visit us. I really love the atmosphere and I absolutely love the food. There is nothing I can say. The music was a little bit loud for the lunch crowd I thought but it is very nice Persian upbeat music. I wouldn’t change anything about my experience there every time I go
