    Their salmon is one of the most delicious I've had, and they cooked it perfectly. Also I love their savory eggplant stew. Two of my favorite things. Our waiter was absolutely outstanding! Thank you.

    The server was barely available. He didn’t tell us about the special. We overheard another server describe the special, scallops. We would have ordered it, especially since there are limited non-meat options on the menu.

    We eat at Pomegranate on Main every few weeks. Very consistently good on all fronts - service, food quality, freshness of ingredients, atmosphere. They really pitched in to help find dairy free options for my son who has is allergic to dairy products. Made some changes in the ingredients specifically for him.

    This was our second time and I was still NOT impressed with service or food! Our waiter was in a hurry and did not have time to answer questions, I booked it for our anniversary and our special day wasn't even mentioned. I will not be back there are too many good restaurants in Greenville to go here!

    The food is decent and fresh, but bland except for a couple of dishes. It’s not really the kind of place that warrants reservations and the ambiance of the restaurant doesn’t match its food. You can get much more flavorful Mediterranean food from cheaper and more convenient establishments

    I had really high hopes for this restaurant based on the reviews. The hostess upon entering the restaurant had the personality of a rock. No greeting, no smile, no words, just walked us to our table and said our server would be with us shortly. We got a reservation a couple days in advance so I thought might generate a decent table. We got a tiny table by the window and were crammed between two larger, rather loud tables. Normally a window view would be nice, but the previous diners had left quite a mess of uneaten food at the outdoor table just outside our window. So that was our view. They didn’t clean the table up until we were on our way out. Our waiter was absolutely awesome and he gets all the credit for the 4 stars. The appetizer we got was delicious, and the rest of the food was plentiful and good… but I thought the meat was rather bland. I guess I misunderstood the spiciness level of Persian food. We had shish kabob, grilled lamb kabob, and and a ground chicken kabob which I think was a decent representation of the menu. There were other items on the menu that I would have like to have tried, so I think it will give it another shot at some point. Regarding the hostess and the uncleared table, I do understand the challenges restaurants are having to fill positions with good talent.
