Restaurant closed and appears to be permanent. The Phoenicia has been closed for a few months with real estate sign in window.
Made a special trip over to have their delicious Mediterranean food to find they were closed!!! :( A sign said they hadn't paid their rent since April. Not sure what happened but I did love this restaurant!

Just passing through Altoona and was fortunate to find this great Greek restraint. Service and brunch selection were great.
Top notch wait staff, the very best in Mediterranean food, owners are eager to please, and Sunday buffet is amazing! This is a staple for Sundays, as well as Friday and Saturday lunch.

The food and service allows you to have the feeling of being along the Mediterranean enjoying the freshness and taste of the food. Great place to go on a date night!
If you aren't sure if you like their menu give them a try on a Sunday they have a buffet set up so that you can try things without committing to a meal you may not like!
