Great food - packed with flavor. Fantastic service. We wanted an unrushed dinner and it was perfect.

They do not cater to food allergies. The food was not worth the cost.

We enjoyed our dinner for four.The pomegranate martini was great, and so were the chicken kebabs and jasmine rice. Did not try desserts, perhaps another time. Definitely recommend this place for those who want to try Persian cuisine.

Dined here for the first time the other night. Great atmosphere, very good service. We had the tasting menu and tried a little of everything. Cranberry rice was my favorite! The hummus appetizer was also delicious. Highly recommend! Wish we had room for their dessert, maybe next time!

Nice place in a good location with great vegan options so kudos for that. However, my veggie kabobs were raw then burned on the edges. I’m ok with charting as long as the veggies are somewhat cooked otherwise. My husband’s lamb was very over cooked as well as his rice... mushy. I detected no seasoning to the veggies or rice for my meal. Disappointing especially for Persian cuisine. Also the pita bread served with our hummus appetizer seemed stale. It was hard and chewy, not what we’re are accustomed to for this type of cuisine. It’s difficult to find a restaurant offering vegan options so I was disappointed that we have to mark this place off of our list of choices. The live music was great tho.

I always enjoy the food. Unfortunately my friends card was double charged and she didn't notice until she checked her account! She was very upset. These things happen...but I had suggested the restaurant to her, so I felt bad for this first time experience for her.

I have been going to Pomegranate on Main since it opened! It's one of our favorite Greenville places, always on the list for special occasions with our family.

If you want authentic Persian food, this is where you get it. The owners have taken great strides to provide an amazingly authentic atmosphere, down to decorations from Iran.

Never less than total satisfaction, always fun!

Service and food was good. The waiter had a hint of “BO”.....kind of an earthy, granola type guy. Other than the occasional whiff, the experience was good.

What a wonderful evening. Food with depth and layers of flavor. We had the Persian experience that starts with 2 pita spreads, the spinach and roasted eggplant were to die for, then kabobs and roasted tomato. Also had the Persian breakfast, flavors I wouldn't have paired,but were fabulous together. Ended the meal with hot sweet tea. The waitstaff was knowledgeable friendly and helpful. All in all, a wonderful experience.

First visit to a Persian restaurant, leaving me wonder why we've waited so long. The restaurant is wonderful with gracious hosts explaining the courses and spice usage. Food is excellently prepared with just the right amount of char. And, as weird as it sounds, don't fail to try the pomegranate ice cream. Great experience.

I had the medium rare lamb chops which came out double bone in. I had to ask the bar tender for a knife (he gave me a butter knife...moron) to cut the chops since they were difficult to eat as served plus the flavor was really odd and unpleasant. Since I was on a date I didn’t want to send them back or ask the waiter over but overall for $85.18 I’d say I was quite dissatisfied.

Really interesting food. Lots of spices you don’t normally see in a restaurant saffron being one of them

Our group had the special which was chicken marinated in spices and molasses, daily special, which was excellent. One other had roasted salmon marinated in saffron and onion absolutely delicious. All dishes were accompanied by different rice dishes all of which were excellent. We were late for lunch 1:45 so it was very quite and the service was great.
