This restaurant bustles with energy. The French food tastes authentic. It's a little busy/ loud for me but a good experience especially since its in Falls Park.

On a short visit to Greenville & my bf and I came across this place for lunch. It's Mediterranean in flavor and quiet place. I had the chicken kabob which was very nice - lemony. Service was good. Nothing extraordinary but good.

Perfect setting near the Falls in downtown Greenville. Great Persian food, good service, lovely outdoor eating area that is dog friendly (all of Greenville is dog friendly!). Don't miss it!

In Greenville for a youth soccer tournament, dreading the team meal at XYZ chain, when I stumbled across this little bit of heaven located in the charming historic district. Inside had that contemporary foo foo feel which got my radar up, thinking this might be the kind of place that spent more with the decorator than in cooking lessons and... More

I'm surprised at some of the comments about the food prices here. We had two beers, glass of wine, salad (large, fresh and delicious), two entrees (which includes the wonderful "breakfast" appetizer), and chocolate cake. Total bill including tax was $71.00. Everything was perfectly prepared, beef and lamb were tender, portions were very filling, everything served at correct temperature, and... More

You can go to Persia without leaving SC. Great entrees and side dishes, especially rice varriations.

We are on a short vacation after working in the US and this is our 1st visit here.

Pomegranate's had food that was tasty, beautiful, and healthy. They have several "not to be missed" starters. My friends had beef and lamb dishes, my husband had the delicious Chilean sea bass, and I had the walnut and pomegranate stew with chicken. Each of us was absolutely sure ours was the best. I can't wait to go back.

This lovely restaurant has a patio to enjoy beautiful Greenville Autumn afternoons. And I can't think of a better cuisine for that time and place. Shareen seated us outside and brought us a complementary dish of pita bread, feta, unsalted butter, radishes and fresh mint. Maybe it doesn't sound like it would go together, but the little bite was refreshing... More
