I love the restaurant.Shose this for my Birthday. Unfortunately the service this time was sub par. WE received very little attention. Took a long time to take our order. No one came and asked how food was after served. Waited a long time to get our check.
Nice evening. Food was good but over-priced for what it was. The ambiance had the feeling of fine dining but the food did not match. It was mostly traditional Lebanese food. Not really worth the high price.
I was there today at 12 meeting a female friend . I had a BLT wrap. Sorry , she showed up before me and did mention that we had a reservation.
She had a salad . We both had coffee. We were there until 1:15
All four had excellent meals. Service was great and the restaurant while small, was comfortable even with tables relatively close together. A bit pricey but, they give you what you pay for so, no complaint.
I would definitely recommend it and go back.
Wonderful Mothers Day brunch with our family .
True to form, Phoenicia was so special . Delicious food and wonderful service. This restaurant is truly a crown jewel.
Best food. Best drinks. Great service. Always
Extraordinary wine list. Superb food! Great service. I’m all in
The best middle eastern food 🥘 love the trio
App to start. By far the best ribs ever. Can’t go wrong with any items on the menu.. very nice ambiance
The food was excellent. Our waiter was also excellent -- polite, prompt, pleasant and efficient!!
Great relaxing dinner with old friends , food was great , waiter was amazing ! He did not try to rush us and we were there a long time catching up. Not to noisy so we could hear each other talking
The place was amazing, a hidden gem. Beautiful restaurant with unique food.
We three gals shared several items...........
raw kibbie was the best was the best we have had in a long time.
Will be back soon!!!!!!!
Great as always!
My guest and clients loved the food ! I am glad they loved it I think very highly of this restaurant
My server was so unfriendly and off-putting it really made it a poor evening.
Greatest delicious. Great server yu nbbb
As always meal
Just an amazing place / meal! The shrimp ghallaba is one of my favorite meals anywhere and when Chef Isaac is on, he is “ON”!
Great Food and Great Service. Always a favorite.
Phoenicia never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the staff is friendly and professional. I could eat here a couple of times a week.
We had a wonderful dining experience. Our server,Paul, was friendly, personable & knowledgeable about the menu. We will definitely return the next time we are in town
Lunch is lesser quality and value than dinner. I didn’t care for the lentil soup, which was oily and under salted. The tabouli is always wonderful. The portions are small at lunch - the fattoush salad was tiny.
Truly one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Service excellent, beautiful restaurant.
The food and service was excellent. One person was visiting from Israel and she enjoyed the food.
Most consistent restaurant in Birmingham, phenomenal food and service
Delicious appetizers of roasted garlic, morel mushrooms, hummus with plenty of fresh pita. Ribs were as tasty as ever. Dover sole was a little over cooked. Service was excellent and attentive. A candle in the rice pudding was the birthday surprise at the end of the meal.
Two things really bothered us about this place:
1. Seating/Noise: We were sat in a small table for two that is immediately adjacent to the front entrance. Every time anybody stopped to greet each other in the front of the restaurant, they were standing right next to us and making it impossible for us to have a conversation. At one point, a drunk man actually stepped backwards into me. The staff was very apologetic, but it's sort of like, "Just don't put a table here". I don't care if it's a small restaurant or not, you don't put a table in the middle of a trafficked area.
2. Food: The appetizer (eggplant makdouse) was pretty good, but the rest of the food was extremely bland. We ordered the stuffed squash and the stuffed chard, and both dishes had zero seasoning.
Came here like others based on the Top 100 OpenTable rating, and the one thing I learned from this night is not to trust OpenTable reviews.
Not as good as we had remembered. The waiter was excellent. Two of us had meat dishes were disappointing. Maybe our expectations were too high. Two of us have vegatiarian dishes and were quite pleased.
Overall I’d say medium and it will be a while before we go back
The food was great! Great service! Easy to get to location. Happy we could park on side of restaurant.
Food was great and Benny took wonderful care of us!
Amazing food and exceptional service
Food was unimpressive. Wouldn’t go back. Service and ambiance were nice.
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.
Great meal, great ambience, and great service.
Our server was incredibly helpful and took great care of us
Birthday dinner for my boyfriend! Service was amazing and food was incredible. Love phoenicia. Will be back
Number one restaurant in Detroit
Not to be missed food is wonderful, service is excellent.
