I love this place! – I have gone to Pomegranate at least 5 times, and have enjoyed excellent food and service each time. I usually have the Lamb shank, it is just incredible, the Chicken Pomegranate which my girlfriend tends to get is also delicious.
Nice ambiance, the owner (who is always there when I go) is very friendly.
Service is prompt and polite, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity that you get.
Kitchen timing needs attention – I ordered the kabobs that was highly recommended. I was truly disappointed when I saw my mates food come to the table steaming hot. My poor cold kabobs looked so sad. Like it was sitting on the line for a long time. Kabobs aren't that special. Besides being cold it really didn't have much taste.
Casual,fancy and delicious – Pomegranate appears to be on the fancy/snooty side but
once you are seated you immediately feel comfortable.
Most of the diners are dressed very casually.The waiters/
waitresses are very friendly and welcoming. Even when
we order a veggie meal consisting of appetizers and
no wine there is NO snotty "rolling of the eyes" response.
The food is delicious! The desserts are out of this world
with not out of the world prices! It's not a bargain meal
but for $15-$20 a person you can get a great meal with
juice and dessert and tip and tax. (This is what we
paid for a veggie meal of 4-5 appetizers,pizza, non-alcoholic drinks,
dessert and a 25% tip) Meat dishes will cost more.
Excellent Food! – High quality ingredients make for a great dish! The food is fresh and perfectly executed. If you want outstanding food don't miss this place. The Jeweled Rice is awesome!
