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

The food is real good, the taste, originality, authenticity I am so impressed. We discovered the restaurant 4 years ago, since we come to New Orleans twice a year for business, we make sure we book a hotel in the same area just to be close to this restaurant. Since then, have brought my two daughters and a friend and... More

The service is good. The food is great. I usually get the chicken shawarma plate. It comes with choice of sides. Choose the hummus. Its the best. Ive been to Byblos and Accropolis and this place beats them hands down. The prices are very reasonable.

It is in a corner of the shopping center, somewhat out of the way. The food is straightforward, nothing very fancy, but good middle eastern food. We like their falafel sandwiches which are reasonably priced, and the labneh. They used to have belly dancers on some weekend evenings but I am not sure if they still do. There is a... More

Lebanese is one of my favorite kinds of food and I usually order the vegetarian plate (I'm not vegetarian but that's my favorite). The veggie grape leaves were really delicious and they were served nice and warm. The hummus was better than the baba ganoush -- I like my baba ganoush a little "smokier" tasting. Still pretty good though. I... More
