We went to see Stevie Nicks in Highland Park and it was the first time for all four of us. So, we asked a few locals where to eat...this is where they sent us? Zoinks. The food is mediocre, overpriced and SLOW. I would have...More

The food here is amazing. They have the best fish here, soup and chicken dishes. In fact, all entrees are very good and authentic. Fresh and so delicious.

The soups are amazing. When you walk it it is like going to your grandmothers house for a nice Sunday meal, the owner or a family member usually greets you. Have been here repeatedly with friends and family. Have never had a dish I didn't...More

The interior of this establishment is very nice, but not upscale, as the prices would indicate. Dining al fresco in the summer is quite nice, but the view is not the best. The service both times that I have dined at Phonecia has been excellent...More
