Recently visited this restaurant, ordered the swordfish and it was the best I have had in quite some time. We had been visiting with friends of ours so the conversation was flowing and the waitress couldn't be more accommodating with waiting for us to be ready. She was very attentive, water glass was always full and came back and forth... More

I took my wife out for our 32nd anniversary and the whole experience was terrible. We both started off with the French onion soup, which was ok. I ordered the Prime rib with French fries and a salad. Got my meal before the salad. Prime rib was awful. Fries were really good, and I couldn't enjoy my salad, as I... More

Was there the other night with some of my friends from work. The food was delicious, but our waitress Stacey was horrid. Whenever you asked for something, she gave you such an abrupt answer while she was walking away. She was VERY RUDE and UN professional. At the end of the night, she apologized for being so rushed, as she... More

But.... you spend $120 for dinner .. and you order a soda and want a refill and they charge you the $3.00 for your second soda.. My wife and I go out at least 2/3 times a week... and .... this is the only restaurant... that charges for the second soda.... so will not go back again.... Shadi's is just... More

Sat at bar on a Thursday eve. Not too many people in restaurant or in the bar. Place seemed pretty empty. Seemed odd. Passed friends who had been at bar and eaten earlier, they were not impressed. Food was cold.. We had the middle eastern sampler. Added baked kibbee and grapeleaves. The grapeleaves were a bit mushy. Another order escargot.... More

We've been eating here for years, and can't say enough good things about the place. They've got the best prime rib, best french fries, and of course, the best mid-east platter around. Double thumbs up!

All their entrees are excellent however the lamb in my opinion is fantastic. You can order one, two or three lamb chops. Not an outstanding wine list but there are a few keepers on the list. I eat out quite often and do enjoy fine cuisine and this is my favorite local place to go.

The waitress was friendly but the service was very slow. We waited almost 30 minutes between the time we finished our apps and then got our salads. It was another 30 minutes before we got out meals. Granted we visited on a Saturday night but it was not overly busy. There were many empty tables. The food was not great.... More

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...
