Great lunch

Lovely spot for lunch (or dinner). Very attentive and personable service. About $15 per person for lunch. Allow 45 minutes.

I went for lunch. Then menu is limited. I had the tenderloin wrap and there wasn't much tenderloin - mostly wrap. Very nice and attentive staff and the atmosphere was nice. They give you a little bread and butter/cheese/mint leaves plate to start is nice. My dining partner had the salmon salad and there was a lot of salmon to... More

I went to Pomegranate on Main with two very good friends while visiting from Pennsylvania. I definitely love international and ethnic cuisine. The food at Pomegranate was excellent. We started out with a sampler of middle eastern appetizers: warm pita with a hummus platter, an eggplant platter, a cucumber/dill mixture, and another one that I can remember. All very good... More

We went here for our weekly "date night" and the dish I ordered (vegetarian Kabobs) had just sold out-- however the waitress suggested the beef kabobs, which was fine since I'm not a vegetarian. Oh the dish was absolutely wonderful !!!! We ordered the hummus as a appetizer and I was literally wishing I had more!!! The food is great... More

We were headed to Ford's Oyster House for lunch, however, they do not open til 3. We stopped in at Pomegranate on Main. We were pleasantly surprised, on this warm sunny day in January! Everyone was very friendly! Our server explained some things of which we were unsure. Delicious salmon kabob, and marinated steak wrap! A great find!

Pomegranate on Main is a Persian restaurant in the heart of downtown. The food and service are fantastic. It was a cuisine I was unfamiliar with but our server was happy to walk us through the experience and made sure we enjoyed our lunch. It's in a lovely location and definitely worth stopping in to experience it.

We were in town for a business event and found this restaurant on tripadvisor. It's hard to plan a group event when you're not a local but they were just fantastic leading up to and during our dinner (for 30). The patio was just perfect and the food yummy! Everyone enjoyed it (they had to make more apps for us... More

We've been here several times, but always for lunch. Each time we were warmly greeted and seated by friendly staff. The staff takes the time to answer questions should you be unfamiliar with food items. The food is freshly prepared, nicely presented and reasonably priced. I've traveled a little in the Mideast, as has a friend who accompanied us. Both... More
