We have been coming to Pomegranate for many years. The quality is still good but not outstanding. The last two times we visited the meats on the Tour of Europe were over cooked. Half of the lamb was inedible. If there are 3 people at the table, why not add ONE more radish on the tray! It would be a nice thing to do and it's cheap. This last visit, our food was cold. It may be awhile before we return.

This is one of my favorite lunch spots. However, it is also a great dinner spot. My hubby and I both had the salmon (med.) entree with the delicious cranberry rice (my favorite). It was the perfect dinner on a Thursday evening. We have loved to have had dessert (their chocolate cake with raspberry coulis) is awesome, but I've given up desserts for awhile. Darn! The food and service are always excellent. Do try Pomegranate on Main if you haven't.

The “Taste of Persia” is the way to go if you have 4 diners. It was very good. The noise level was a bit high until the 6 ladies at the next table left. Definitely would go back.

Pomegranate remains one of my favorite places to eat downtown. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service is top notch, and the food is great. And, they make the best pomegranate martini!

Not bad, a bit expensive for what it is. Looked dated and tired. I'm quite certain it was amazing 10 years ago but today in Downtown Greenville you have better options. Sorry.

I went there for lunch on a Saturday, waitress was very attentive. The appetizer that is included with your meal was very interesting. I had the eggplant stew which was not spicy at all, had good flavor and texture. I would definitely go back and explore more of the menu.

Valentines Night Dinner ... good food and great ambiance but our server was a bit under-whelming. He was not attentive so we asked another server to get another drink from bar and it never came. Hope they step it up a little with service on the future. We will return and would recommend others to try them.

Result: an excellent meal and a very fine time in another of downtown Greenville’s fine restaurants.

We had lunch at Pomegranate before a matinee at the Peace Center. It was our first time there, but definitely not our last. Service was fabulous. Our server, in particular, did an excellent job of explaining the menu and Persian cuisine. The food was absolutely delicious. Really looking forward in visiting again.

Overall I would have to call this an average experience. The service was very good the food although ok didn't live up to my expectations. The restaurant is very noisy so don't expect a lot of quiet dinner conversation. Service was very attentive and the prices for their offerings were reasonable. Not a bad place to go for dinner but certainly not exceptional.

My friend and I dined here recently for a much needed girls night out to catch up. Our waiter was excellent. Friendly and attentive but not pushy and didn’t make us feel rushed.
We both ordered the Pinot from Oregon which was nice. We also both ordered the Lamb Kabobs. I have to say we were both a bit disappointed in the lamb. My friends was over cooked and we both felt it was not cooked well and seemed chewy.
We’ve been there before and have always liked the food so I hope it was just one bad experience. We’ve always returned as usually the food is consistently good. Not to mention that compared to most restaurants it’s very quiet and the wait staff are s great. One of the few places you can actually eat at and be able to talk without feeling like you’re yelling or that the staff is shoving you out the door to turn over the table.
