Phoenicia never disappoints!! Samir brings the freshest food to the table and never disappoints. Love enjoying a glass of wine with one of my favorite bartenders and enjoying local conversation. Always a favorite!!

We had a great experience at Phoenicia. Everything was great especially the ribs. The service was excellent. It's a fancy place for a middle eastern restaurant...but its great. Been around since 1971...always great.

The food quality is up there. Presentation and plating is nicely done and appetizing. The mixed app is a goof start. I do enjoy their side salad and could eat a huge plate of it. Their chicken shawarma salad is a nice blend of greens...More

One of our go to restarants that you can count on for always fresh and top notch food and services . Though everyone loved ribs ( dry rub style) they have best rib eye steak in town. Hummus with lamb and Arias is excellent .

We enjoyed a weekday, early lunch at Phoenicia. You could easily drive by this restaurant as the signage does not really stand out, but turn into the adjacent, free, designated parking lot on the building's north. Entry through the rear door is ADA accessible. Handicap...More
