The food at pomegranate is always spectacular! The salmon is a definite must-try. The wine list is great and they even do 1/2 off bottles on Wednesday! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a cozy, fun dinner out.

My wife and I are foodies. The appetizers are unique and the flavors, to die for, the rack of lamb, simply superb! Pomegranate, deserves accolades on ever measure of what we consider the complete dinning experience. If you are lucky and Ali, (one of the owners) happens to grace your table, you will be charmed and impressed with his warm character and accomplishments. We only wish we had a Pomegranate in Savannah.

We always enjoy our meals at Pomegranate. Our son polished off the leftovers we took home. Note to self: hide leftovers from Pomegranate.

Serving sizes are large. We ordered a kabob (which comes with rice and roasted tomatoes). We asked for a second meat kabob as we planned to split the rice and tomatoes.) And we still took home some food.

Good is the only word I can use. My wife and I thought the appetizers were the best part. I had the lamb chops which, because of the marinate did not have a good meat flavor and was disappointing. Service was fine and the place has a casual romantic feel.

Love the food here. We normally order several appetizers to share and a wrap or kabob for each. Service this time was quite slow even though we arrived at 11:45 a.m. for lunch and the restaurant had only a few tables with customers. Generally the service is superb so this time it was disappointing. It took over five minutes to get an iced tea and longer than normal to get each of our meals.

Atmosphere is nice, especially sitting at the window to "people watch". We will certainly return for another lunch or dinner.

The only issue is the parking. It is mostly street parking, which is difficult even at 11:30 a.m. when the restaurant opens. There are some parking decks but they are located much farther away and it involves walking up hill to get back to the car. In extremely hot or cold weather, it's just not very pleasant.

We’ve eaten here many times in the past and everything has always been top notch. We love Pomegranate and the food is delicious. However, we are a little concerned over the service after this visit. Not anywhere close to what we’ve received in the past or comparable to other restaurants in town. Hoping they get that resolved.

Chicken kabobs and beef tenderloin kabobs were excellent. They came with rice, and a baked tomato. The appetizers were also flavorful. Hummus was tasty and the cucumber, yogurt and raisin appetizer was our favorite. Appetizers were served with pieces of flat bread, two radishes, fresh mint and butter.

Service was outstanding but we never felt rushed. We arrived on a Saturday at 11:30 (when they opened for lunch) and by 12:15 the restaurant was getting very busy.

We will certainly return, especially to try this restaurant for dinner.

I was here once before with a book club for hummus and wine. However this past Monday, I was here on a date and was blown away by the quality of food, the amazing waiter, the ambiance, as well as the libation. If you want a lovely quiet evening, I highly recommend this fine establishment and most especially in a Monday evening, as it’s simply romantic in and of itself.

Dinner was very good, we will certainly go back in the future. Very authentic, flavorful, and quite enjoyable!

We have been here several times and always enjoy. We had 3 glasses of wine, ordered 3 starters, and informed the waitress we would share the $18 chicken pomegranate. She charged a split for $6 which was not disclosed until the bill arrived. 33% seems excessive particularly since we did not ask for a split. Next time one of us will order the 3 starters and the other the entree. Regardless, we give a 5 star - the food, service, wine are all exceptional and we will definitely return.
