This restaurant was absolutely amazing. A friend recommended this spot to me and raved about it, so it inspired me to head on over for a special occasion. We live 40 minutes away from here (living in Spartanburg), and it was definitely worth the drive. Everything about the experience was amazing! So easy to park across the street and we were seated immediately. Will be coming back very often!

My customer recommended this restaurant. It is one of his favorites and I had not eaten here. I now know why he likes Pomegranate so much. We had a business party of 6 on a Tuesday night. This cozy little restaurant sits near the river downtown, in a perfect location, just 1/4 mile from the hotel I frequent, while in Greenville. The food is healthy, well prepared, and delicious. Service was outstanding, and the drink prices and food prices are very reasonable. I will definitely eat here again.

Wow. The food was spectacular. Our server helped us by making recommendations, and boy was he on point! The Tour for Two is definitely worth it, as you get to sample a lot of what the menu has to offer. The lamb and cranberry rice were particular favorites, as was the Pomegranate and mint ice cream. The Persian tea at the end of the meal was also a highlight (truth be told, there wasn't much that was NOT a highlight). Definitely recommend.

The snapper was overcooked and dry ($32), the chicken was dry and blunt.
We'll be back and eat appetizers only. They can prepare food, they just cannot cook.

We chose to be able to try the cuisine which is new to us. Great experience, great service (helping us decipher what everything was as we went). Good ambiance too!
The tables are a little small for the style food service you're doing - we were always worried about knocking something over. The wine list was a bit limited for wine lovers, but I did go with the Ventoux, the house red, and enjoyed it.
Overall a great experience and we have already recommended you to friends!

I was quite disappointed in Pomegranate. The food was 'eh' at best. One of our diners' chicken was dry and the beef was either overly seasoned or under seasoned. Our server was nice, but a little strange. She removed our plates from the table while we were still eating our appetizer. All we could do was look at each other like 'what's going on?'. With all of the dining options downtown G-Ville we won't be going back to this one.

We love to go for birthdays and anniversaries! This was our daughter's 25th and she chose here to celebrate! Consistently great!

A very romantic spot with wonderful ambiance, terrific service and delicious cuisine. Everything was handled in a most professional manner. The Interior of the restaurant is as beautiful and welcoming as the exterior. And I must say that the dessert of pomegranate ice cream was superb! My husband and I had, as always, a delightful dinner.

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.
