I had the pleasure of having dinner recently at Phoenicia Mediterranean while looking for a Mediterranean option for dinner. I had never been to this restaurant before, but from the minute we were greeted to when we left, we were treated like well-appreciated regulars. I overheard while there that the restaurant was a well-regarded neighborhood treasure that recently changed hands.... More

In Highland Park actually to go to a different restaurant that happened to be closed that night, we passed Phoenicia and decided to dine here. A little more expensive than I'd planned on for the night, but I'm glad we did. We started by sharing the Combination Vegetarian appetizer plate and then shared a plate of beef kalaya. Plenty for...

Lunch was very poor. The waitress/cashier was pleasant but the service was extremely slow. Swarma beef, lamb and chicken were all dry and tasteless. We were exceptionally disappointed after having read such positive reviews.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Phoenicia with my 12 year old son. It was his introduction to Middle-Eastern Cuisine and he quite liked it. The food was top notch and the service as well. I had the mixed kabob dinner and everything was perfectly done. We were too full for dessert, but they looked tempting. The ambiance is very... More

The soups are amazing. When you walk it it is like going to your grandmothers house for a nice Sunday meal, the owner or a family member usually greets you. Have been here repeatedly with friends and family. Have never had a dish I didn't enjoy. The lamb dishes are great. I always walk out of her satisfidied and happy

The interior of this establishment is very nice, but not upscale, as the prices would indicate. Dining al fresco in the summer is quite nice, but the view is not the best. The service both times that I have dined at Phonecia has been excellent (I believe that we had the same waiter). The appetizers are large enough to serve... More

We had an outstanding meal with a large group. The food was excellent. The service was great. Would definitely go again if ever in the area again. Large portions of food. Very quiet which was excellent with our group so we could actually enjoy conversation- very rare in many restaurants

We stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The day was pleasant enough to sit outdoors. We both love Mediterranean food, and were very pleased with both food and service. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We had some goat cheese appetizers wrapped in full dough that were just right. My husband's Sharma deluxe was so... More

My husband brought me here to celebrate a new job. I'm so glad he did. We went on a Friday evening and the restaurant was steadily busy, but not overwhelming. The food was phenomenal! Note to self...entrees are enormous so you don't need to order too many appetizers. I had the Curry Salmon special and it was delicious. My husband... More

We went bout with another couple for dinner and a movie. We chose PHOENICIA MEDITERRANEA because of their great food, service and atmosphere. From the greeting of the owner and his description of the specials, makes the visit worthwhile. However the proof of the pudding is in the eating. All 4 meals were SUPERB.
