We were some of Kahlil's first customers when Phoenicia first opened. Then came Hurricane Katrina! We moved back to New Orleans a few months ago and were pleased to see the place is still here and thriving. Today the Moussaka was layered with wonderful complimenting flavors. The vegetables were delightfully seasoned and the tilapia was delicately battered and unbelievably moist... More

This gem has been around for some time, and I see why. The staff is awesome and personable so that's a plus, but omg the food is stellar!!! Warm pita to start off with and mousaka for an entree is the way to go!! Best mousaka around by a long shot!!! Their hummus is divine, and their falafel is spot... More

My husband and I went for lunch. We got the vegetarian mousaka and chicken swarma on the lunch menu. They let us sub a salad for the rice side. We have been here 4 times.

I went there recently with a friend for lunch. The food was beautiful - should have taken a picture. We both had the vegetarian plate and everything was very good. They are no longer serving alcohol but that was okay we enjoyed our tea and coffee. I will certainly go back - this was not my first visit - just... More

It was very refreshing both literally and figuratively speaking to see a Houston favorite in Metairie! The welcoming staff immediately seated us and soon, our wonderful vegetarian and nonvegetarian wraps were ready within minutes. Delicious and super affordable.

I was in the mood for Mediterranean food and found Phoenecia online. It was close to my hotel so I made the short drive over. I arrived at 5:30 and was the only one there but diners stared coming in shortly after. I ordered the spinach pastry which was similar to spanokopita. It came with a great Lebaneh sauce. My... More

Forgotten entrees, forgotten drinks, wrong entrees, and average food. The service was terrible. The waitress was nice, but that only gets you so far when one person's entree comes when everyone else was finished eating. We had a party of 11, but arrived early as to avoid complications. My shrimp meal was good, the fattoush salads were good, as was... More

Very good middle eastern style food. I ordere tge Lamb kabobs, which were very tender and perfectly seasoned. Wife ordered Gyro, very tasty. Out of the way on Vets Hwy unless you see the sign. Well worth lookin for.

We went for lunch & a cocktail. Service was poor & confused. No idea how to make cocktails. Food ok, but service slow & confused. We do not usually eat here and maybe they were just having a bad day, but not likely to return. There are good Lebanese restaurants in the metro area, but not this one.
