I have always enjoyed Phoenicia so much, particularly the hummus and pita bread that is served before the meal. The last time I ate there, the hummus didn't taste as good as usual. And the pita triangles, usually soft and fresh, were hard and stale. And they had that tough quality bread gets when it has been microwaved. My entree... More

My in-laws live in Ocean Springs, so this was not my first trip to Phoenicia. It is usually quite good, but this time, it was very disappointing. At the time, I was on a low FODMAP diet to try to figure out what was hurting my stomach. Part of this diet meant I could not have garlic or onions. I... More

I had a business lunch here. The dolmas was very good. As was the humus and flatbread. For lunch I had the grilled chicken Greek salad and it was very good. Nice restaurant in a very scenic area.

We were traveling the Gulf Coast and found ourselves in Ocean Springs in the morning. Cute town. We saw Phoenicia and they had a sign saying seeing breakfast. The parking lot had cars so we decided to give it a try. I also looked it up on trip advisor before we ate and had really good reviews. Well they were... More

Recently had the pleasure of dining at the Phoenicia with family. They offered brunch and a lunch menu. The biggest dilemma was making a selection. The menu was extensive offering Greek dishes, seafood, traditional breakfasts and creative brunch entrees. I ordered a Mediterranean dish which included home made hummus, pita, chicken schwarma and rice. Our guests enjoyed eggs Benedict, crab... More

They don't serve alcohol but you can bring your own. Wish I had known that. The food was flavorful and had it been served hot, I'm sure it would have been much better. I was dining alone and got the feeling that my waiter would prefer me gone although he did it with a smile. It's too bad. Such potential... More

It's high priced "fine dinning" want to be. Bland food with a very tacky atmosphere. Not a place to make regular visits.

Very romantic atmosphere, extremely professional establish with the best waiters that I've even encountered. The waiters can quote the menu, explain how the meal is prepared, they usually have special dinners and appetizers, which the waiters fully explains. My wife and I love seafood and Phoenicia Gourmet Restaurant not only prepares for you the finest food that ever touch your... More
