Living not 5 miles from the place, it has taken me a while to come back to Pomegranate after an initially mediocre experience. I know people LOVE this place. Nice space. Lovely people. But, as a diner, it boils down to the food, right? I really am an open minded diner, really enjoying the range of all cuisine worldwide. And, I understand perfectly well what to expect from Pomegranate. I came in with a small group of friends last week for a light dinner and walked away impressed only by a really terrific mushroom soup...I mean REALLY good! I also had a prosciutto firebread that was soggy and bland. My wife had a decent steak salad. With shared starters, our share of the bill was a hefty $72. Not thrilled, but fed. This weekend we decided to try again. Lovely server, very patient despite the place being packed and my wife and I wanting to chat about the day before ordering. She did a great job trying to guide us on some choices. We should have listened. We both left with "diner's remorse". $68 for a bland mushroom started, two cups of a watery vegetable soup (ladle too short to reach the bottom of the pot?), a salmon and beet salad (four tiny slices of good cured salmon and one small quartered beet for $13), a firebread with gloppy pulled short rib and cold melted cheese, and one glass of Malbec. I'm not sure what happened. But we won't risk it again.
I am glad others have had better experiences. Again, the people there are terrific!
