The food is absolutely awful. Service was terrible and it is very overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy!

The lunch hamburgers are excellent. Service was very good. Refreshing atmosphere.

Take-out food is gourmet-good. Reasonably priced.
Try the BBQ chicken!

I have dined at Pomegranate Bistro twice. Impressions:
Nice ambiance, decor well done.
Food is decent but overpriced.
Salads are large, dressing is tasty.
Steak can be fatty; for the price this is not acceptable. It IS possible to serve a decent cut of kosher meat that is not loaded with fat: buy higher quality or lower the price if that is the cut you must serve.
Biggest disappointment: dessert. Expensive (around $9), price justified by being touted as "for two." Not true. We ordered several different desserts and each one was very small, serving no more than one person. Worse, they did not taste good or homemade. The crust on the tart was definitely not homemade. One can buy the same crust at Giant. Bottom line: do not order dessert.

I found the food to be average, the service to be terrible and the prices to be very high. I can not recommend because the value was not good at all. Sorry...

You must not eat out much.. It does not take kosher food to be over priced and this is far from it. GO to any comperable restaurant in NY, Chicago or LA and you will find that the Pomegranate has a wide selection of Menu price options.

We drove down from Baltimore to try Pomegranate's. The service and food (mostly the fish dishes) were excellent (we did not try the desserts -- mostly because we were too full). The cauliflower soup was great! And the prices are typical of an upscale restaurant.

I had to ask whether the matzoh ball soup was really matzoh ball soup- it seemed more like onion or beef-broth soup. Yuck. But I really enjoyed the salmon. The service was a little lacking, especially when every time I took my 3 year old's steak knife away, they kept giving him a new steak knife. Duh!

Why would you bring your 3 year old to a place like that anyway. GET A BABYSITTER!

But we are talking about prices, service and quality relative to other restaurants here in the area not ny or chicago. There is no mitzvah to be overpriced.

Observant people do things as families and this is known. No need for childish language.
