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...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...More

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.

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...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...More
