Two of us for dinner. Took advantage of the weather and sat outdoors. The food and the service were very good and friendly.

Best in the warm weather to eat alfresco... We mostly get appetizers, but since the new owners took over, everything, especially fish is good, service has vastly improved as well...

Dear akrumbein, We are so glad you enjoyed your previous dining experience. We wanted to invite you as the new owners of the business to come back. Most of the recipes are still the same including the soup. We have added over twenty new wines since we bought the business in July of 2016. We have also added some original Persian family recipes of our own. Please present this message to your server and the coupon code #11216 at beginning of your meal for $10 off $50 or more when dining in. We look forward to seeing you and your friends soon!

We didn't have reservations for dinner Saturday night, but Phoenicia Mediterranean made us feel right at home and found us a table. This place is the real thing! The decor is unpretentious, and the large portrait of a very dressed-up Danny Thomas adds to the pleasant (and sometimes quirky) ambience.
We loved the friendly openness of the owners. And the food was very good. I started with a cup of their yellow lentil soup and moved on to the delightful Persian Herb Stew. My dining partner enjoyed the broiled salmon with sides of vegetables and lemon potatoes.
I'm pretty sure we'll reserve a table the next time we're in Highland Park looking for dinner.

Phoenicia Mediterranean restaurant's name is misleading.
We eagerly entered to eat some delicious Mediterranean food and ended up dining on Iranian food. The food was disappointingly bland and tasteless, and the service was slow but friendly. I got the chicken kebabs - supposed to be 2 but really was one split into two parts for $25.00. The dish was mainly (75%) tasteless rice. The few grilled vegetables were unseasoned and sour. The lentil soup was so bland that I wasn't even prompted by my tastebuds to add salt. Maybe I just don't like Persian food. In any case, I would not recommend this restaurant. Pricey and bland.
