Phoenicia never disappoints!! Samir brings the freshest food to the table and never disappoints. Love enjoying a glass of wine with one of my favorite bartenders and enjoying local conversation. Always a favorite!!

We had a great experience at Phoenicia. Everything was great especially the ribs. The service was excellent. It's a fancy place for a middle eastern restaurant...but its great. Been around since 1971...always great.

We had a fairly large group and ordered a number of different dishes. All were excellent. We love Middle Eastern food and this was some of the best even considering how many excellent Middle Eastern restaurants are in the Detroit area.
