The current location of Phoenicians Lebanese Restaurant is on busy Route 5 aka the Albany-Schenectady Road. The dining room is on the smallish side with tables that seat approximately 40....but everything else about this gem of a restaurant is larger-than-life. Very interesting art work on the walls were created by the owner Robert (pronounced Ro-baire.) Friends recently went there for... More

The interior of the restaurant has nicely decorated painted walls and ceilings depicting Phoenician history in Lebanon with famous landmarks of that country. Parking is limited, but lunch was easy to get in and out of the place. The owner is very outgoing and was attentive. I ordered the lentil soup with a Schwarma pita wrap. The meat was a... More

I lived in a neighborhood enhanced by peoples from Yemen, Lebanon, and Syria. I have had years of experience re: Middle-Eastern Cuisine. As far as "Phoenicians" goes, it is simply not very good. It has no ambiance of any perceptible kind. Almost all dishes are profoundly under-seasoned. Prices are very reasonable at least. Visited twice, and the first time, there... More

Let me start by saying that I seek Lebonese food and this was the some of the best I have ever had. The beef Shawarma and Chicken Kabob were by far the best I have ever had. for desert we split the Baklava, which came in four different forms on a single plate. Very unique and awesome. The service was... More

The food here is very fresh, and the atmosphere relaxing. A couple own and operate the restaurant. She is the chef and takes traditional food to a new level with a subtle hand at seasoning. I have eaten this type of food in a number of countries around the world and in different cities in the USA. Phoenician's can be... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant located just up the street from the Wolf Road corridor. The food is authentic and delicious and the ambiance and warm welcome from the owner, Robert, will make you feel like an honored guest in his home. Get one of the Family style platters of mixed grill meats, it's the best way... More

The food is wonderful, This is one of the best Lebanese restaurants I have been. The place is not so big, but with a very nice typical decoration. However, I consider that the highest point of this restaurant is the owner, that interacts with the guests and looks after every detail to make sure they are enjoying the stay. It... More
