The food wasn't good and the prices were a bit high for the value.
They did gave us the space and the room to sit with a stroller and the atmosphere is nice. However, as a restaurant it's not good enough.

Love this place ! The food is consistently great, we always have a bunch of awesome appetizers and then order the Branzino. So so good ! Owner almost always there and greats us. You can’t get service and food like except in special places.

Wasn’t comfortable with how close the tables were in the booth section. The restaurant was mostly empty when we got there and people were seated on either side of us too close even with the barriers placed in between tables and they could have been seated farther since the place was not busy yet. would have felt more comfortable being more spaced out, didn’t feel safe.

I’m a long time diner there had a new waiter very average which is unusual. Never went over the specials never asked if we wanted a drink.
Food very good as always and enjoyed the outdoors.

Must have been an off day because everyone i talked to raves about this restaurant. Waiter rushed our order and would not bring out all the food at once as we had asked—wanted to eat family style. Spinach pie was horrible—soggy—tasted like something from the frozen section at Trader Joe’s. Chicken kabobs overcooked and dried out. Pita bread was not impressive —tasted like store bought out of a bag? Portions very small and pricey. Salad was just lettuce and 1 slice of tomato. and we asked for a Fatoosh salad. Falafel was overcooked—almost fried to a crisp. Hummus was good. Rice pudding tasted like flowers. Ambience was nice eating outside and they were nice to accommodate a party of 5. Unfortunately, there are Many more impressive Mediterranean restaurants in the area. Likely will not return. Unfortunate....

Absolutely love Phoenicia! Food was wonderful and the service was great and very non-intrusive. Great ambience inside the restaurant as well. A little pricey, but worth the money for high-end authentic Lebanese food.

Simply put, the best Lebanese food I’ve ever had. Sameer, Sam and the entire staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic, the food is consistently on point, there’s really not much else to say but make a reservation....

The ribs are amazing, but not terribly consistent. We ate their twice in the past week, and one night the ribs were the usual outstanding dry rubbed ribs the first time, but the second time, they weren't seasoned properly, and were very mediocre. The service the first night was great, but the second night was super slow, and the waiter kept forgetting to bring drinks and other stuff. Overall, it's a great, if not the most consistent restaurant.

Magnificent dinner at Phoenicia. All dishes superb and outstanding service from Hussein. Although the wine selection on current menu was quite limited it turned out they had their full wine list available. Such a great place to dine and very happy to see them doing good business again

What’s not to like? The food was excellent. The 4 of us each had something different and all were wonderful. Service was great, not rushed but if you needed the waiter, he was there. Overall, a great experience.

Second visit, our food was slightly overcooked. The waiter wasn’t attentive but was over confident. Making jokes and being overly familiar but forgetting our food. He forgot our greens beans and rice-I had to flag another waiter to bring them. Green beans were like mush-all fallen apart. He never asked if we needed Anything until we consumed all our food. A good waiter will check to make sure you’re set at least 5 mins after bringing the food. We also Waited 15-20 mins after finishing our meal for the check.

We like this place and will come back, I will request a different waiter next time.
