Just a few steps from Falls Park, Pomegranate on Main serves authentic Persian cuisine with exceptionally flavorful beef, chicken, lamb, shrimp, salmon and veggie kabobs and basmati rice entrees, stews and starters. The entrees are gluten-free and naturally healthy. Owner and entrepreneur Ali Saifi learned Southern hospitality in his native Iran long before settling in Greenville, S.C., and opened the restaurant as a gift to the community that celebrates the Upstate’s melting pot of cultures. Enjoy a bistro-style atmosphere in our main dining room or open-air patio with water wall.

We made a reservation for our anniversary. The hostess sat us right by the front door. When asked if we could be seated by the window at an empty able we were told no, there was another later reservation that required that table. Ironically no one was ever seated at that table or even in the vicinity. Sadly too there was a foul mouthed man at the bar dropping f bombs all evening and no one ever talked to him. Food was great, Zack our server was great. Ambience and hostess were lacking.

Excellent dinner on Saturday evening. After cocktails (the Persian Mule is yummy per hubs; wine selection is excellent), we both ordered the Roasted Salmon (med.) and it was cooked perfectly. We love it with the Cranberry Rice. We splurged and finished the evening with the awesome Chocolate Cake.

We had a wonderful table by the front window and could watch the Christmas Carriages and Santa's Sleigh traversing Main Street.

Always excellent service.

Pomegranates has been a favorite of ours for many years. The food is always consistently fresh and delicious, and the prices are very fair. You can choose between their pretty dining room or the covered outdoor patio.

Food and service was excellent per usual, however the table next to us was very close and the group was loud. Would give 5 stars if not for the noise level.

For some reason they were sitting everyone out on their enclosed patio where they play incessant repetitive music. The fans over the lights also leave an uncomfortable strobe effect. We should’ve just asked to move a second time into the dining room which seemed empty. I remember the food being better. My chicken kebab was nothing special snd my husband’s lamb was over cooked.

Well, to begin with service was subpar! Then with my entree I got very little rice which is supposed to be their specialty, and good! And by the time I could ask for more it was too late!
Need to do better! I will not recommend it st all!

Perfect place for date. Husband and I came to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. They had a special menu with our name (cute touch).

Highly recommend their for two menu, it comes with 3 meats (chicken, lamb & shrimp), 2 rice options, 2 appetizers and tea. The basmati rice mixed with dill and lima beans was my favorite.

They have a signature cocktail - Pomegranate Martini (tastes just like a cosmopolitan).

There is lots of street parking and friendly staff.

Highly recommend making an Open Table reservation.

Excellent cultural experience. Admittedly, I have never tried Persian food. My wife and I decided on this as a choice for our weekly date night, and we were not disappointed. We got the duo that came with a sampling of items. Loved the humus, kabobs, and rice. Excellent service as well. Will definitely plan to go back.

An excellent dining experience on the heated patio. As vegetarians we were quite satisfied with the options available. And the food (starter, entree, dessert) was delicious! A special shout out to Blake who was an excellent server and made the experience so enjoyable!

We have been to this restaurant many times and have loved the food and service. This time the food was just average which was a little disappointing. Being told how to eat my food by the server also wasn't what I needed but understand that many customers have not tried this type of food before and so the servers tell everyone.
