The food was amazing per usual. Unfortunately they sat us directly in front of the door to kitchen while a better table sat vacant most of our meal. Every time servers walked out, the bright kitchen lights were in my eyes. Also not the prettiest view. Not what I had in mind for anniversary dinner.

Amazing food! Suggest you listen to the Chef's Specials and chose from among them although we had the Beef Shish kabob and Chicken Shwarma which was also excellent.

As a repeat customer, I can offer that this restaurant lives up to its reputation, with it providing superior and consistent service, spanning my multiple visits there so far. The ambience is both energetic and elegant, with the serving staff making it a point for visitors to feel welcome form the moment that they enter. The Mezza selection is phenomenal and very authentic and similarly, the entrées are expertly prepared and very ample in their portion sizes. Overall, the offerings resonate for me as being authentic "home cooking," which makes visiting Phoenicia all the more enjoyable. Overall, this restaurant should be considered as one of the gems of the greater Detroit area.

We enjoyed the food and appreciated the service.
It was a little too noisy and crowded for our preferences but we also recognize that this is part of the ambiance.
All in all- it was very good

Overall everything was good! The waiter didn’t really seem to want to be there and that is really what made it more of a good dinner rather than a great dinner. The food was good, but for the prices I would have liked to see the waitstaff be a little more friendly.

We really like it at Phoenicia. I love their ribs, which is why we went there Sunday night. Unfortunatley the ribs were very sparse and had very little meat. Our waiter was also not up to their usual attentiveness. The place was not very busy. Definitely would be leary of the ribs which they do so well.
