We invited our friends thinking they would enjoy something just a little bit different in Naples dining arena. Our friend, a bit touchy about his taste in wine brought his own fine wine. Acceptable and nominal corkage fee. No problem. I chose their Lebanese blend which was delightful and went well with the Mediterranean flavors of the menu. The lamb shank was huge the salads and salmon dish were very nice as was the lentil soup. Not the usual flavors.
The entertainment was extraordinary. So much so that It felt like a nite club with honest musicians. Fabulous!!!! Food, friends, music, dancing like you want to.,...wow what more oh yes and the service was outstanding and the patrons were all friendly.
The 2 of us had great experience,excellent food,varied menu,this is the most fabulous restaurant ever!
LOVED it! What a fantastic restaurant, delicious food, and warm, friendly owners. New favorite place to dine out in Naples. Can't wait until the snowbirds go bye-bye and will love it even more :)
Food good. Service slow.
AH-MA-ZING! The food was to die for, it’s such a calm ambience, I left speechless. I can’t wait to go back and eat more food! I can’t rave enough about the food omg
Food wise, our party of six enjoyed our meals. I especially enjoyed the hummus. However, the place was packed and they were clearly overwhelmed. The main seating area was Uncomfortably warm, So we opted to sit on the outdoor patio.
We had to wait for clean glasses in order to get some water, and because the bar was also backed up we waited quite a while for our drinks. The wait staff tried very hard to keep up, they were running around like crazy trying to accommodate everyone, so I don’t hold it against them at all . The music by El Gato made for a very enjoyable evening, and even though the service was lacking, everyone had a good time. I will definitely be back in the off-season.
this was our first visit. Very, very loud. When we were seated we were greeted by a waitress that announced she only worked once a week and didn't really know anything. It went downhill from there. Half an hour to get our drinks, wrong order, etc.. The owner did apologize which was appreciated. if we go again, we'll request a table outside.
Sat down served us water with black things floating in it. Had one waiter never came back. Gave us a second one who we believe was a bus boy. Asked for salad before our meal and it came out after. Would not go back!
Based upon the fact that we were the only diners in a large restaurant, I would venture they won't be around long enough to have a chance!
We both had the fatoush salad with chicken schwarma added and shared the spinach pie. Both were excellent, good flavors. This is the best Lebanese restaurant in Naples by far.
Fabulous food and welcoming owners. Will definitely be back. Chicken shawarma and Greek salad were amazing. Who knew pita or rice would be so tasty?
This is extremely amazing,authentic and delicious food,I love their Lebanese music, beautiful ambiance,great service.
Food had great flavors but the portions were pretty skimpy for the price we thought. Server was delightful and owner/chef a doll. Took time to chat with us about Lebanon and family and recipes. Warm fresh off the stove rice pudding was yummy!!!!
We’ll be back to try again.
We were very disappointed. Food was just OK. Extremely noisy with the belly dancer. Entertainment lasted much to long and to often. Will not go back.
Great evening. The band had customers dancing in the isles.
Food was cold. One person didn’t get meal. Server disorganized and forgetful. Could not keep anything straight. Bar service horrible. Music great. We were there March 22, 8 people.
Food was exceptional! Homemade bread was so good and the lamb entrees we ordered were delicious. a real gem. This is great local restaurant with reasonable prices. We will definitely return .Highly recommend
Very authentic and delicious,,excellent service and amazing decor
My husband and I been to the restaurant twice during our visit to Naples. I can say this has been the best Lebanese restaurant by far. We are Lebanese and had tried several Lebanese restaurant in Naples but the Phoenician Bistro tops a our expectation.
Service was excellent and priced well.
We highly recommend it to our family and friends.
The food was delicious and the menu varied. Nice array of small plates (appetizers) if you aren't a big eater like me. The taboulli was excellent. Happy hour prices only apply if you are sitting at the bar. This would be my only criticism as the bar is right next to the tables. Service excellent. Ambience very, very nice. Well appointed and inviting. The pita bread was piping hot out of the oven and quickly refilled without charge. We were there on a weeknight. Apparently they have a band on Fridays and a belly dancer on Saturdays. Well worth the trip from Ft. Myers to North Naples.
Food was good service great with entertainment too but portions small and pricey. Appetizers small and pricey 4 grape leaves vegetarian for $9.00 small amount hummus $9.00
Great food and great place for a Friday night. The guitar music alone is worth the trip.
Its great to have a good Mediterranean restaurant in the area. A real find as far as we are concerned. Delicious pipping hot bread. All our food looked and tasted home made.
Service and food was excellent. Waiters recommendation on preparation was right on
The food was great and do was the service
Great service and delicious food. Look forward to returning. We had ten people and everyone enjoyed the food.
Very authentic and delicious,great service and ambiance
Food was very well cooked, service very personal and even the owner greeted us and welcomed us, cook presented his food freshly made, bred was soooo good and warm.
We really enjoyed our meal. Our server was most attentive and helpful in making choices. We will definitely return and recommend to our friends.
wonderful dinner outstanding entertainment
Everything was fantastic,food ,service and ambiance
the food was out standing, both my wife and I were very impressed! we were not rushed, in fact we were the last to leave. I t was like being back in Beirut.
Good food! Belly dancer made the evening perfect!
Food very pedestrian. Overpriced.
Good Lebanese food, prepared well, reasonable prices, good for sharing. Belly dancer adds a bit of fun and authenticity to the atmosphere Sat. night. Best Lebanese food in Naples.
Music that accompanied dancer too loud for having a conversation with other guests. We did enjoy the dancer, but not the volume of her music.
Fantastic! Can’t wait to go back 👍🏻👍🏻
Our first visit with six people and everyone ordered different dinners and they were all pleased with the service and the quality of the food.
We have already recommended the Phoenician to all our "foodie" friends and neighbors! On our first visit, my husband and I shared the appetizer platter that included 2 Lebanese style stuffed grape leaves, hummus, 2 falafal with a crispy, non-greasy crust and seasoned with allspice, and the best lemony babaganoush I have ever had! My husband ordered the braised lamb shanks served over jasmine rice, and I had the evening's special...perfectly grilled chunks of corbina with a light and airy orange and wine sauce...absolutely delicious! Our waiter suggested a Lebanese red wine that was delightful. Unfortunately , we were too full to try any of the desserts; however, we ordered coffee so that we could linger a while to enjoy the belydancer's performance - classic and beautiful!
Loved it! The food was amazing, great service, warm ambiance and the band was excellent
