My husband and I were in Richmond during the weekend and this restaurant caught my attention while driving past it. The exterior is not much (and parking is in the back of the restaurant which provides another entrance). The inside gives a very exotic feel....More

Don't let the slightly delapidated exterior fool you. The food is excellent. A Lebanese friend of ours recommended it so I figured it had to be good. It's not your usual Middle Eastern restaurant in terms of flavors. We went for lunch on a weekend...More

I miss eating here regularly since leaving Richmond, but make a point of coming when I am in town. At my most recent visit, I had the beef shawarma, which was outstanding as always. The fattoush salad is excellent, and the free appetizer which comes...More

I wound up having lunch at The Phoenician at the advice of a co-worker who eats there regularly. First, don't let the outside appearance steer you away. While it's not much to look at on the outside and easy to miss in heavy traffic, the...More

We had passed this restaurant many times. We always were talking about trying lunch there. Today we had lunch there. I had the Veggie Kebab with Grape Leaves and Hummus. My wife had the Fatayer and the Fattoosh with her Falafal. It was great! Nice...More

I went there with a friend, and we both had high expectations. I love Lebanese food, and always try it in every country or city I visit. The Phoenician has authentic food. Yes. But it´s not the best. I had some good dishes there, but...More

I'm Lebanese-American and picky. We have not been by for a while, but despite reports that the quality had dipped, we found quite the opposite recently. Service and food quality remain a top-notch feature of a restaurant in an out-of-the-way part of Broad Street. Mind...More

Quite a discovery. I've been twice recently, - Hummus and Tabouli is exquisite, lamb 'stew' incredible, and the lamb chops excellent. Unexpected given surroundings.

This is a Lebanese restaurant that overall is good but poses some contradictions preventing higher ratings. The food was very good, depending on what you have: the Chicken Taouk was very good; however, the Beef Shawarma was very dry. Service was very friendly, congenial and...More

The Phoenician serves quality Lebanese food in a lovely Lebanese atmosphere. The service is friendly and efficient. The food is like Grandmother used to make, as long as your Grandmother was an accomplished Lebanese cook. The drinks are refreshing and priced well. The appetizers and...More
