Kibee was awesome..

I have not had Kibee since Bishop's in Lawrence, Ma closed many many years ago. I went to the Phoenician and was pleasantly surprised how delicious the kibee was and the fries...this meal was as close to the old Bishops as I can remember. We would definitely be returning.

We have always had great meals at the Phoenician since they opened in Salem, NH back in 2001 and moved to the current Haverhill location a few years later. I had dined at the predecessor, Bishop's, for decades prior to its closing in 2001. Our experiences likely differ from some dissatisfied diners because we order only their Middle Eastern food...

We go here about once a month for the baked stuffed shrimp, lamb chops and fries. The shrimp are large and served with a great cracker based stuffing (which we have been known to ask for extra on the side!), the chops are always cooked perfectly and a side salad of cucumber, tomato and feta is a perfect accompaniment. And... More

I don't often order fries, but here we order them for an appetizer. They are very reminiscent of the old Bishops, and they really are in a different class of food then your average order of fries. The prime rib was huge, and the salad is exceptional. So why just a mediocre rating? The ambience needs work badly. The place... More

My husband and I went there for our anniversary. The waitress was nice and efficient. However, we were very disappointed in the food. We both had haddock and it was very dry and served lukewarm. We both had fries and they gave us one plate to share with not enough fries on it. The salad had shrunk since we last... More

Attended an event here and had a buffet dinner. Salad, rolls, chicken, steak tips, fries for meal and all just okay.

We were there for an event on Sunday. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was not great. I had the haddock and it was dry, others at the table told us the same. My wife had the chicken piccata she said it was dry as well. Someone at the table ordered the tenderloin tips and sent them back... More

We started at the bar and then moved to a table. Our service was great! We had the grape leaf appetizer and it was delicious! There were plenty for all four of us. I ordered the baked haddock with broccoli and it was cooked perfectly. We were told it is similar to the old Bishops so we needed to try... More

Went there with my elderly mom, and not elderly-wife, LOL! Had no idea what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised! FOOD: Excellent! Great quantity, and the quality and flavor were superb. Middle-eastern cuisine, and everything was great. Got the "Assortment Platter", and it had Spinach and Meat Pies, Stuffed Cabbage, Grape Leaves, Baked Kibbee, Lima beans, Rice Pilaf, etc.... More
