Took my mom and family for Mother's Day Brunch. Mom was in a wheelchair and is very hard of hearing. On my way in I saw the patio tables and ask if we could sit outside. It was a beautiful day and brunch was wonderful. We ate here last year as well and was just as great as it was Sunday. I will definitely be back.

For Mother’s Day. First, we get told that there was another group coming and we only had a certain amount of time to be there. Food came quickly and the mimosas were great, and plentiful. That was a plus. However, bacon was undercooked, French toast had raw egg, and the CA Bowl has cilantro, which is wasn’t on the menu. The cilantro is an issue because of it tasting like soap. The potatoes were soft and mushy. Was recommended to us by one couple with us, and we might try it again on a much slower day.

The food was flavorful and had a pleasing presentation but we each left hungry. The extremely small portions we’re the reason I gave the restaurant a 3 star rating for value. Unfortunately, the lack of food would prevent me from recommending it.

Wonderful atmosphere great food and even better service . We made a reservation for their Sunday brunch and the table was setup and ready when we walked in the door. Our table was greeted with a plate of delicious pastries. Bottomless mimosa and coffee was included in our brunch meal. Our glasses were never below half way empty :) we were a group of 6 girls and our service was fabulous. We were there for just about 2 hours and our table was never skipped over. We were also not rushed to leave, which was appreciated!

Everything tasted great. Only downfall was I made it a point several times that we were there for a birthday and they confirmed they knew it was a birthday celebration when we arrived. There wasn’t a single mention of the birthday during dinner, or a candle on the dessert (that we had to order separately and pay for). Just disappointed that they didn’t give any effort towards that.

We always look forward to a meal at Fenix, we've been following Richard for many years.
Our entrees were flank steak and salmon preceded by grilled octopus and Caesar salad.
The caesar dressing was a bit bland, but everything else was wonderful.

What a delightful and tasty meal at Fenix. It was my first time there although I've heard from many friends that it was worth a visit. For a Monday evening, it was busy. Now I know why. Chef has very delicious dishes worthy of praise on taste and design. I felt that servings looked small but were very filling. I took some of my entree home. Delightful cocktails. A memorable dinner with a friend. I will be back soon and will recommend to all.

I have been here for both brunch and dinner and the menus are very diverse and delicious. I think the quality is much better in the dinner items, but likely because they are high end spins on classics like shrimp and grits. Brunch was good as well, they cover the California basics from chilaquiles to eggs benedict.

My wife loves lamb so when she says that her dinner of three large chops were the best ever, that means something. And the salad was full of colorful vegs. Yum!

Server forgot to order and bring a drink. She forgot to ask how the sample of Port wine was and if I would like to order one after serving generous samples. She seemed familiar with the wine list and menu and was cheerful and fun. Our food was served promptly.

Amazing food, generous portions ( appetizers, entrees, and desserts), and no corkage fee for first 2 bottles of local wine. I ordered shrimp and grits that were better than what I've had in the south. Dined with 7 other friends so sampled swordfish, salmon, lamp chops, and polenta. All prepared with a fresh twist on flavors and interesting sauces. We met chef/owner Richard Hyman and could tell that , for him, Fe-nix is truly a labor of love. A great find!

My wife and I had a lovely anniversary dinner for two. Our reservation was ready when we arrived. Our waitress welcomed us and we ordered drinks (which were delicious!). Our appetizers came out afterwards and our dinner a little while after (but not too long after). The meals were fabulous. Even though we were stuffed my wife and I looked at the dessert menu. There were many choices, but we selected two desserts and weren’t disappointed. I’ll definitely be making another reservation at Fénix, very soon!!!!!

Once again, Chef Richard Hyman and the staff of Fenix do not disappoint. I brought friends from out of state here and they loved it. Bacon wrapped meatloaf, kurabota pork special - with an Asian twist, and perfectly cooked swordfish. The clam chowder has carmelized onions and bacon - so tasty! Thank you Alicea for your great service! Chef continues to use local ingredients. My guests loved it and would recommend! The menu changes all of the time, so come on back in if you haven't dined here lately!

We were celebrating a birthday and made a reservation ahead of time, though there was plenty of space in the restaurant when we arrived. Service was slow from the start, with the server checking in rarely. She didn't offer drinks before she wanted us to order our entrees. Ordered drinks and they came in stages rather than at one time. One of us is vegetarian and ordered the chilaquiles (no meat was listed in the description of this item and chilaquiles are usually meatless). There was pork in the chilaquiles. We simply switched entrees since we knew it would be some time before the server would return. They also did not recognize the birthday in any way (we weren't looking for free dessert, but a happy birthday would have been nice.) I really wanted to like this place, but we won't be returning or recommending. There are better options in downtown Lodi.
