This is the best poboy since Samich's left town. It was prepared the way I ordered it and was pressed. The gumbo wasn't bad as well.

The food is always well prepared and of quality ingredients. The restaurant has a good variety of items plus they offer additional choices that are not listed on the menu. The specials are a little pricey for lunch but are always good. The only complaint...More

This restaurant has an extensive collection of great items to select from but the steak is what I always order. It's fantastic. While this is a BYOB restaurant, you will be happy to have saved your money for the food. It's pricy but worth it.

Yes. They have a gift card. In fact, my cousin and her husband took my husband and me to brunch there after the Jazz Fest. He used a gift card from the resturant.

Phoenicia doesn't carry any wine, beer or liquor. However, they allow customers to bring in their own choice of spirits and Phoenicia provides ice buckets and glasses at no charge. If you are looking for a good or great... More
