Menu is more Georgian than Russian. Really delicious food and if you don't worry about the calories or cholesterol, try the cheese bread appetizer!

We had Adjaruli (Khachapuri with egg) and Chakapuli, both were wonderful! The adjaruli was very flavorful, the bread was tender (freshly made), and they mixed the egg in right at the table. The lamb in the chakapuli was very tender and full of wonderful flavors...More

I had no idea what food this restaurant served when I walked in - I was attracted by the warm ambience of the place. I have never eaten Russian or Georgian food so when I saw the menu I wasn't sure what to expect -...More

My husband and I take all of our out-of-town guests to Pomegranate for dinner. The Beef Stroganoff is out of this world - a must-try! Overall, everything I've ever eaten here (and I've had pretty much everything) is outstanding. Everything tastes fresh, the service is...More

I had never heard of this restaurant nor do I consider Russian food as a dining option. However, I went to this restaurant with a Meetup group and I was blown away. First of all, the restaurant is very homey and bohemian. But it's the...More
