Great Experience

A+ on the food, service, and atmosphere. Our first visit but definitely not our last. We're new to Greenville, and this is our favorite restaurant so far!

Restaurant did not live up to our expectations; the Persian spices seemed somewhat tired and the our selections themselves were overdone. Additionally the waiter was a bit distracted and/or absentminded.

Five of us had a super dining experience at Pomegranate on Main last night. We had the best server I can remember which added to the nice atmosphere and overall experience. You had a choice of inside or outside and we did make reservations which I would certainly recommend. This food was a focused ethnic menu but varied enough to... More

My life loved the food and wine at Pomegranate but I was not as impressed. We both agreed that the service was poor. Plenty of staff on hand, they just weren't paying attention to the customers, including us.

Wow! My wife and have visited Greenville several times with our kids' travel soccer teams, and we always enjoy visiting the beautiful downtown and strolling along the river. We've had some good food on past trips, but nothing that compares to the dinner we had this weekend at Pomegranate on Main. The service was excellent and the food was bursting... More

It's been more than a year since we'd been to Pomegranate on Main, so I was pleased when my daughter chose it for her birthday dinner. We had the "Tour of Persia" for four people, which includes two or three appetizers and a huge array of food, all of which we enjoyed. There was lots left over. Although there was... More

I joined some friends here a few nights ago before a show at the Peace Center. This is my second visit to this restaurant. The food is great. I had the saffron chicken and shrimp kabob combo which came with some rice and a roasted tomato. I also enjoyed a pomegranate margarita. This is a unique restaurant with a unique... More

While, I've had Mediterranean food before, this was my first time experiencing Persian. Very nice presentation and short but good lunch menu. I had the hummus wrap which was excellent. Sat out in the patio area - perfect day for it - not too hot or too cold. Great location on the West End too!

I have been exploring Greenville as a new home and originally found this restaurant while trying to escape the crowd during the main street farmers market by walking further into downtown toward the peace center and other theatres. Note that I am not typically drawn to Persian food, but was very intrigued by the explanation of how consume the complimentary... More

We went here for a business lunch the other day upon the recommendation of a business associate. We were not disappointed. My colleagues both got salmon entrees and were very pleased. I got the beef kabob with their persian rice. All of our entrees were well done and the server was very helpful. We will definitely be coming back here... More
