The food you should get when you go there.

Phoenicia is a solid choice when you want Mediterranean food prepared as it should be. While the look is a little odd inside, large open spaces, bar at the front with three seats or so and kind of dark it works. When we were there there were groups ranging from large families to couples and all... read more

Forgotten entrees, forgotten drinks, wrong entrees, and average food. The service was terrible. The waitress was nice, but that only gets you so far when one person's entree comes when everyone else was finished eating. We had a party of 11, but arrived early as to avoid complications. My shrimp meal was good, the fattoush salads were good, as was... More

Very good middle eastern style food. I ordere tge Lamb kabobs, which were very tender and perfectly seasoned. Wife ordered Gyro, very tasty. Out of the way on Vets Hwy unless you see the sign. Well worth lookin for.

We went for lunch & a cocktail. Service was poor & confused. No idea how to make cocktails. Food ok, but service slow & confused. We do not usually eat here and maybe they were just having a bad day, but not likely to return. There are good Lebanese restaurants in the metro area, but not this one.

we used to go to this restaurant when it first opened and recently went back -- it has gone down in quality both in food and decor. The decor of the restaurant definitely needs to be updated and the food quality definitely needs to be updated. When they first opened, they had decent Mediterranean food in a decent ambiance with...

The first time I came to the restaurant, the staff was very courteous and even offered OTC meds because they knew I had a 1-hour drive back home. Today, the waiter was able to cater to our party of 7 with much ease. We had an enjoyable three-course meal. They have the best Lebanese tea I have ever experienced with... More

I can't understand the reviews that rave about this restaurant. I guess it's the only one serving this style of food in Metairie and they have nothing to compare it to. We went for lunch, the food was average quality, portions were medium sized, the waitress could not even pronounce the dishes and did not know what they were. She... More

We were driving down Veteran's Blvd after a concert and spied the sign for Phoenicia Restaurant. BEST restaurant we EVER stumbled across. Our server Yasmine was wonderful and friendly. The food was AWESOME! I had lamb chops with salad and hummus. Also had stuffed grape leaves appetizer. She had chicken kabobs. For dessert we had Baklava and Ashta. Everything was... More
