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

I always have a great experience and this restaurant. The food is always delicious and I'm never disappointed by what I order. One thing I would mention is that the owner seems to be harsh with his staff, humiliating them in front of everyone. I...More

I love their marinated red cabbage and vegetarian soups -- carrot or yellow lentil, dairy free. They usually do an excellent job with their fish entrees -- which they will serve whole or filleted in the kitchen. Expect a complimentary appetizer plate of pickled vegetables...More
