Nice Dining in Haverhill

I met 5 friends here for dinner, upon one of them recommending it. We had made a reservation, and when we arrived we were seated right away at a large, round table in the center of the expansive, bustling dining room. There's was a nice fire burning in the fire place at the far end of the room... read more

This place has been a favorite of ours for years although it's a 40 minute drive. On my last visit I ordered "tenderloin on the stick" my favorite dish for a long time, it was dry & chewy, almost didn't taste like tenderloin but I thought it was just me. Yesterday we went back ordered the same thing, definitely not... More

We were saddened when Bishop's in Lawrence, Ma. closed. Imagine our surprise when we heard that the chefs that had worked for bishop's had opened their own place in Haverhill, Ma. We visiter The Phoenician this past weekend and what memorable memories it brought back. The middle eastern food was wonderful. I love haddock and the piece I had was... More

This middle eastern restaurant does big lamb chops and stuffed cabbage rolls really well. Some people on the web recommended it after I had searched for the infamous Bishops of Lawrence, a standout in the 70's and 80's. The Phoenician did the chops in the broiler just as well, fantastic. Decor is comfortable, but a bit old and anonymous. Don't... More

When visiting this area the Phoenician was the restaurant at the top of the list. The baked stuffed shrimp was my go to dinner. This time that previously delicious stuffing was like eating a mouthful of paste with no flavor. The usuallty coarse delicacy was gone, there were no bits of walnuts, no flavor of garlic and lemon. I couldn't... More

My wife and I got together with another couple for dinner on a Saturday. I've never been here before but the other couple loved it so we decided to meet here. The ambiance is definitely family dining but the food is fantastic! We ordered the hoummos appetizer which paired very well with the yummy pita bread they give to each... More

Both were exceptional as always. The Salad is even one of my favorites as they Blue cheese dressing is... More

We had a great meal from Baba Ghannouj and Hoummos bi Tahini to Shawarma and Falafel wraps and different combo plates. Wow...huge portions and reasonable prices! Will definitely come back when I am in town!

First, I really like this restaurant. They really do a pretty good job of carrying on the Bishops tradition. Went there on a recent Friday night and spent over $300 for four. Of course two of us had the excellent 3# lobsters. Now, what's my beef? Well, the owner Bassam is usually present when we go, but never does intervene... More

Okay, I visited this restaurant on a weekend with my wife, daughter & her fiancée the first time around and wanted the Prime Rib. The Prime Rib was sold out so I settled for the Lamb Chops. This time around I went on a Wednesday night with a very close friend and I finally got my Prime Rib. Now I... More
