“Meh”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

We were extremely disappointed in our meal here. The food was extremely overpriced and was not cooked properly. I got the lamb and it was very overcooked such that it was chewy and hard to swallow. Will not go back here again!

“Great Kashkebademjan!”
Reviewed April 3, 2011

My husband and I had dinner at Pomegranate on a Saturday night. As usual the food was great! The Kashkebademjan appetizer was fabulous! The hummus was good too! It's nice that you can choose several appetizers in smaller sizesand mix them for your own mezze. Both the chicken kabab and marinated grouper special were delicious. I loved the barberry rice and my husband enjoyed his lima bean/dill rice. His only complaint - he wanted more!

The only negative - for some reason the restaurant was extremely loud and it made coversation difficult. However, this could have been due to a large group on the patio. Nonetheless, the overall ambiance was great.

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2010

Pomegranate is by far my favorite restaurant in Greenville, SC. All their food is gluten free which is excellent for my diet. Their shish cabob is to die for and the bareberry rice compliments it very well. Their pomegranate martinis are also a must if you like cocktails.

“Wonderful food and ambiance.”
Reviewed December 13, 2010

This excellent, intimate restaurant serves Persian food -- an unusual and delectable cuisine. It is very nicely decorated and located on the edge of the West End historic district, right near the entrance to Fall Park.

My wife and I went there for lunch on a Monday (since many restaurants are closed on Mondays, this alone is a plus). The menu was varied and had appeal to both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. A nice touch is the "Persian breakfast" that is complimentary and served before your meal. It consists of delicious warm flatbread, mint, radishes, butter, and feta and is a nice starter. We shared one of the yogurt appetizers -- excellent! Both the chicken and vegetarian stew dishes were superb. Hot Persian tea was served in lovely glass cups on silver trays.

An excellent, reasonably priced choice for lunch. Definitely a quality establishment.

“Slightly Exotic cuisine in a remarkably pleasant setting”
Reviewed October 27, 2010

Pomegranate offers rather sophisticated Middle Eastern cuisine in a nicely designed (if slightly cavernous) inside venue as well as at an adjacent quite lovely covered patio where there's sometimes music. The restaurant has been opened for perhaps 4-5 years, but it has become the place where we often celebrate birthdays--there's something quite festive about it. There's a dinner for 4 for about $80 that is a good buy and makes an excellent introduction to their menu..
