We LOVE this place, so it was a perfect choice for our anniversary! The food is delicious, the recommended wine pairings are spot-on, and the staff is delightful!

A once long time staple of downtown dinning, now just getting left behind in the hustle and bustle of a new caliber of restaurants in downtown

Excellent, unusual food. My husband had a stew made with pomegranate/walnut sauce, and I had scallop kabobs. The rice served as a side was nicely seasoned. We shared a dish of pomegranate mint chip ice cream that was delightful. The restaurant was reasonably quiet for one with high ceilings; the waiter was friendly and attentive. I would like to go there again if we return to Greenville.

Hosted our friends who had never dined at Pomegranate and we were not disappointed. Even though a Friday night, service was stellar and our server gave us lots of time to relax, order and enjoy the food as well as giving us excellent recommendations. Persian menu is so well done and fun to try new things with friends. AND can't recommend their house made pistachio ice cream enough....so yummy! Never disappointed at Pomegranate.

Always good clean food. The flavors of spices and perfectly cooked grains, meats, veggies... Such a treat. Easy to be a vegan here, gluten free, carnivore... It's all good. They found out it was my friend's and my birthday and they gave us each A FABULOUS PIECE OF CHOCOLATE CAKE. Say no more. Just go.

Our food was delicious, with generous portions. Although our server was extremely nice, she never brought the appetizer we ordered. She did bring out one that was a sampler at no charge, but that was done for all diners.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville. The service this time was not up to what it usually is. Our server was quite slow even though there were only two other tables with customers and both were using another server. Our server was spending his time chatting with other employees while our food sat on the counter waiting to be served. He also was very slow at filling our drinks. Otherwise, the food was great as usual. Hopefully the server will be better trained to pay more attention to his customers.

This is a very attractive restaurant with indoor and outdoor eating areas and an interesting middle-eastern menu that also has plenty of choices for non-adventurous eaters. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant, drinks were good and our orders (fish, beef kabobs, lamb chops and an eggplant dish --whose name I've forgotten) all hit the spot. Great location, too. Highly recommended.

Having enjoyed lunch at Pomegranates a couple years ago, I chose it for dinner before the James Taylor concert. At $20-$30 per entree, all three of us found the meal lackluster. The lamb was tough and dry, the beef overcooked, and the salmon bland/tasteless. The service was great, but the food was a disappointment, sadly.

Great place! We were seated promptly and there were no issues with our changing our reservation for 4 to a table for 2. Great server who greeted and served us promptly and had no hesitation in making recommendations guided by our questions and input. The spinach appetizer was excellent as was the on-the-house plate. Eggplant stew was awesome; wish I could duplicate it at home. The beef kabob was tender but Morley as flavorful as expected. Wine choices by the glass were more ham adequate. This will be a go-to place in Greenville.
