We had made our reservation for 5:30 to enable us to enjoy our dinner, and then walk to the Peace Center for a 7:00 PM show. All went as planned!

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

Great place...

I had no idea we were going to a Persian Restaurant and I was so glad! The food was very tasty and there were many choices. I had the Tenderloin Torsh Kabob in a pomegranate and walnut marinade. It was delicious!

It's always a pleasure to visit this downtown restaurant. Very close to theaters and the service is very dependable. We like it because it offers vegetarian options as well as tasty Meats. You can dine indoors or out in the atmosphere is very conducive to conversation. Great food!

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.

Everything was okay....but I wasn't terribly impressed when our server went directly. from petting a dog (out on the patio) to serving our food-----with NO intermediate stops. Not cool. The server said you encouraged folks to bring their dogs. Maybe you should encourage your servers to wash after petting. Probably won't see me again.

In town (traveling through) and set the reservation to meet up with a local friend who liked the restaurant (we stayed at a hotel within walking distance); thought food and atmosphere was very good. We sat outside, so can't really judge the noise level. Seemed to be "pet friendly" and we enjoyed the four legged boxer seated next to us.

I went there with two friends to celebrate our birthdays. The wine list was great, the food was wonderful, and the atmosphere was quiet and we can have a great conversation at a late lunch. I love their tea their wraps their salads and the wonderful Persian cooking. The staff is friendly and attentive and this is my go-to place with friends, my husband or family. Lovely outdoor patio.

I had been to Pomegranate on Main a couple of times previously and really enjoyed the food, but this time it was much more bland. We kept trying to add seasoning, but didn't seem to help much. The grilled shrimp was good, but beef and rice not so much. We did enjoy sitting on the outdoor patio on a beautiful evening, and the service was fine. It was a little pricey for what we received.

I had heard this place was great from several folks. I had never had Persian food before and asked friends who had been what it was like they said similar to Mediterranean or middle eastern cooking but with some different spices. That was not a very helpful description to me but after trying it fairly spot on.
I started out with a refreshingly stiff signature martini, strong yet tasty. Not like some that are more like a pomegranate juice and booze. This was just delightful booze.
My party arrived and we shared a trio of appetizers all were splendid. We also shared a rack of lamb, shrimp and chicken kabobs, and a Pomegranate walnut stew. All of these things were excellent the flavors of the lamb and kabobs were, as previously stated, similar to a typical kabob joint but pleasantly different also. The stew was really good as well I was not sure how this sweet savory concoction would taste but I would gladly have it again.
For desert I had their pomegranate chocolate chip ice cream. Which was as good as tho it sounds like it would be. I'd say this place was pretty top notch especially if you like ... well ... pomegranates
