    First time eating at Pomegranate. It’s reputation as a Greenville favorite preceded and nothing about the experience disappointed. The server was prompt, attentive, and very helpful for a couple eating Persian for the first time. Highly recommended!

    This has been one of our Fav’s for years. However, yesterday when taking guests it was average primarily due to the server being under trained as compared to all others we have had. Interrupted conversations immediately on coming to the table, dropped food on the floor, and reached across the table for plates i stead of simply coming behind everyone. Not up to the level we expected there. My kabob combination ($29) was a bit under seasoned and less vibrant taste wise than previously. The starters (hummus & 2 others ) was very good.

    We are vegetarians and saw a few things on the menu we could eat. The appetizers were all veggie based and we chose an eggplant appetizer that was enjoyable to eat. We both ordered the eggplant stew over rice and found this had a very nice flavor and enjoyed eating it. The coconut custard pie was wonderful, not full of fluff ingredients like pudding or whipped cream but just the great flavor of the coconut. We enjoyed, but given the food profile of the restaurant I would think they could offer a few more inventive veggie options. I'd go again though....

    The red pepper hummus was excellent. The Torsh kebab was so tender and flavorful. The best kebab I have ever had! The Pama-tini was a terrific drink. The pomegranate chocolate mint ice cream was an outstanding combination of tangy and sweet. My husband really enjoyed his salmon. He said it was perfectly cooked. A real gem of a restaurant!

    The food was prepared very well. Our waiter Ben was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and helpful with our order. Since it was our first time dining there, Ben helped us navigate through the menu. We enjoy new dining experiences. Pomegranate was not disappointing. We would definitely return. We will also look for Ben when we return.

    Visited Pomegranate on Main for the first time Saturday night. The food was exceptionally good - fresh and flavorful! We had the red pepper hummus to start. It was delicious! The marinade they use gave my chicken a wonderful depth of flavor. Loved the grilled veggies, too! The wine list is also quite good, with selections from smaller vineyards available. Our server, Kayla, was friendly and knowledgeable. She helped us navigate the menu and we were so happy with our choices. We enjoyed the experience immensely and will return to Pomegranate very soon!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenville. Tasty options across the menu. Unfortunately, I have a very restricted diet now and was stuck with the veggie kabob. Ok but somewhat lacking in flavor. My wife and friends all had their favorite dishes though, and all liked their meals.

    The only problem I had was getting to the restaurant too early. It was 11:20 and we were told that you didn't open until 11:30. I understood even though I thought to myself that it was so hot surely we could have waited inside. One of my "White Privilege" friends did make comments and the hostess heard her. I feel that hostess' should be trained to ignore rude constumers. She didn't and it sort of put a shadow over my meal. I think it also carried over to the waitress. I thought I was apologizing, for my friend, but she didn't accept. In all fairness to her, I might have behaved the same way BUT I wasn't the hostess. The food was wonderful!!!
