Can't be beat.

I have been eating at the Phoenicia since it was opened and it has only gotten better - really good - over the years. It depends on what dish you like, steaks or seafood, Sam gets it right, all the way around - taste and quantity. I most prefer the crab on crab with the special sauce. There is... read more

Everything is delicious!! Egg Sardou and the crab cake will put you to bed. Bring champagne (sm corkage fee), because they don't serve alcohol. But still a must!

We had breakfast here during Christmas week. It was lovely. The place was decorated beautifully and all the tables had white table cloths on them with "butcher" paper on top. The place was so nice and relaxing even tho it was a little crowded. We had a delicious breakfast of omelets.

The food and atmosphere was good. Staff was some what cold and snobbish. Lunch menu had changed from previous visit, and I was very disappointed in lunch menu selection. Lunch cost is reasonable but night dinning is much more costly.

Please pray for what use to be a go-to stop for Sunday morning breakfast. Service could not be any less competent and you can forget grits, a decent omelet or a coffee refill. Only pancakes were up to par provided waited another 5-10 min. after mom and wife were served though without toast. Maybe 2016 will be better.

We have always enjoyed dining at Phoenicia's for an evening dinner, but breakfasts are every bit as special! We would highly recommend the omelets (our favorite is the crawfish omelet), and definitely choose the asiago grits! Nice location in downtown OS with friendly staff and delicious food!

Omgoodness, what do I say, the well seasoned, veteran waiter remembered my order from months past, such a breath of fresh air to be remembered over his 2,000 plus patrons. I loved the soup appetizer along with the colossal crab cocktail. Everyone on the entire staff of waiters to management to the owner when above and way beyond their job... More
