Pomegranate is a "must visit" restaurant when visiting Greenville!
Pomegranate is located in an ideal location within downtown Greenville. Parking is convenient, and it is right on Main Street.
This restaurant has some of the hands-down BEST cuisine I have ever experienced. My husband and I have traveled around the world and are definitely "foodies", but this place definitely ranks among the best of the best. Pomegranate features authentic Persian cuisine, and I don't believe that you could go wrong with ordering anything on the menu. Diners receive a complimentary appetizer platter of a traditional "Persian breakfast", which includes a basket of lightly toasted pita triangles, unsalted butter, feta cheese, as well as radishes and mint leaves. Those unfamiliar with Persian cuisine may initially find this combination a bit odd, but when combined, the flavors are truly unique and delicious. There area a variety of appetizer choices, a fantastic wine list, and the entrees are phenomenal. I had pomegranate chicken kabobs which were to die for, and my husband had the lamb kabobs, which had a delicious yet subtle mint flavor. Both meats were prepared to perfection, and were paired with authentic basmati rice, as well as traditional Persian accompaniments on the side (lemon, lime, and roasted whole tomato).
Pomegranate's atmosphere oozes Persian authenticity and class. The decor is gracious, beautiful, inviting, and thoughtfully designed. Perfect for a romantic dinner for two, or a group gathering with friends. The interior is quite spacious, and also features a lovely bar area. There was no live music the night we were there, but I understand that they do have it on certain nights of the week.
Immediately upon making our reservation, we were met with incredibly friendly staff, who were enthusiastic and genuinely helpful. We wanted to make a reservation on a Saturday evening at 7:30, and called that same afternoon - no problem. We told the hostess that we would have an infant child in a stroller, and she was able to graciously accommodate us in an out-of-the-way corner of the restaurant, which had a small nook where the stroller fit perfectly. Our waitress was incredibly attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the food, as well as the wine menu.
Two adults, an appetizer, two DELICIOUS entrees, two glasses of wine for < $65.00....definitely a win!
Overall, we can't say enough about Pomegranate....when we visit Greenville again, we will most definitely be back!
