"Excellent Cuisine, Exciting Atmosphere, Unique Experience"

In the quaint town of Westwood, NJ, The Phoenician serves up Westwood's exciting dishes in a unique ambiance. At the Phoenician, every dish is created using only the freshest, finest ingredients. We use NJ, NY or PA organic farms for produce, poultry and dairy. We will only serve wild caught fresh fish, since farm raised has been found to have many toxins. Our meats are the choicest cuts of grass fed Black Angus. And our global cuisine is designed to create a healthier way to feed our body and soul.

We are known for and have a large selection of Gluten-free items on our menu. In addition, our kitchen has separate areas for gluten-free preparation.

We look forward to serving you a delightful meal in our exciting addition to Bergen County's vibrant restaurant scene.

    The mocktails do not disappoint. You will be pleased. The staff from the hostess, to the wait staff, and management are very attentive. We enjoyed artisan pizza, tuna appetizer, salad, linguini with shrimp and crab. All were perfectly served.

    Everything was terrific. Food, service, staff. However in the main dining room there was really weird music. 80s and rock in fine dining? Total ambiance killer. But other than that 4.5 stars!

    Thank you for a great night out. We chose this restaurant because most of the menu is gluten free, which makes dining out for me so much easier and enjoyable. We had great service and the food was great. W will definitely be back.

    really really loud - we were far from the live music but were screaming across the table. Food is ok - hummus was delicious but the pita it came with was clearly either stale or just toasted in to rubber. Fish was good but it's expensive for what it is. Menus still say bibi'z and so does the door which I found odd. We'd probably try it again....

    We were seated at a table where 2 seats were on a ratty old couch with sunken seats and butt grooves so deep that even balancing on pillows the plates were nearly up to our chins. Food and service were good but not memorable. I’d return but would ask to be seated at a standard table with chairs.

    Five of us went for lunch on Sunday. I asked for the lunch menu and was told that they do not have one for Sundays. We spend quite a while choosing our meals. The server came to give us the specials and left. Even though I do not like brunch options, I and 2 others finally choose from the menu salmon with dill and capers on a panini and my daughter asks for an orange juice to be told by the server that they don't have any more salmon and have no orange juice. What restaurant runs out of ingredients for their Sunday brunch and no orange juice? And why didn’t the server tell us that some meals were not being served since they didn't have the goods? Well I guess this was our first and last time there!

    When we got to Bibi's we suddenly realized that it had recently been acquired by a new owner and is now called Phoenicia. However, the chef from Bibi's is still on staff and we found the menu and food quality to be even better.

    Service was friendly and great, food is above average. Apps, salad, dessert and coffee were great, my burger was prepared just as requested (medium) but it lacked a little in flavor. Nice ambiance and decor, except since dining area is far from entrance and with no windows/natural light, it always feels a little stuffy. Still, I like it and would recommend it.

    The food for my wife was received cold which made me eat my food cold waiting for my wife’s food to heat. The entire time we were there the staff only came by once to ask if everything was good and that was when we were able to tell them about the food. Will not be dining there again.
