Phoenecia is one of our regulars in West Seattle. The service at this family owned restaurant makes you feel like you're eating in their home dining room. With a beautiful view of alki, blackboard cafe feel, and delicious menu, this restaurant is perfect for a date night.

Every time we come here we order the 39 spice beef and Prosciutto de Parma pizza. The beef dish is packed with incredible flavors, is mouth-watering tender, and has a little kick to it. The prosciutto pizza doesn't look like much but after you pick up one pizza, you'll want to eat the whole thing. Each pizza is only 4 pieces, so order more than one if you have more than 2 people.

This little jewel on the beach is a great place to go when you want a new experience. A small, family owned spot where the menu changes so frequently that they write it on a chalkboard. Great small plates and delectable pizzas. Get there early or wait for a table. It IS well worth the wait!

Dined for the first time at Phoenicia Monday night and I am sad that I have never been there before. The food was really good and the service was friendly and personal. Other reviewers have commented on the small dining room and close-together tables. Yes, it's less roomy than some but I didn't find it to be a problem. We sat by the window and enjoyed a beautiful Alki sunset. Our table of 4 enjoyed the mixed greens salad and the Kale salad that was on the special board. Both were delicious. We also sampled the 39 flavor beef, yum! and the seared scallops small plate...definitely should not miss that one...One couple shared the sausage pizza with mama lil's peppers...mmmmm. And the other had the Margarita pizza. I am from Jersey so usually like thin crust east coast style pizza but this crust was very flavorful and melted in your mouth...this Jersey Girl gives it a thumbs up! The specials on the board looked really tasty and the wines by the glass were delicious. Please note that they offer beer and wine only!
We also tried the baklava which was just the right portion and fantastic. Highly recommend trying Pheonicia. We will be back again soon.

I fondly remember Hussein Khazaal who started the Phonecia at Alki many years. Before that he ran a restaurant of the same name on Queen Ann Hill, where I regularly took out of town business guests for dinner. His clay pot chicken and lamb dishes (he often drove to Ellensburg to hand select his lamb) were to die for.

Sadly, Hussein passed away a couple of years ago and now his family carries on the tradition, albeit differently. I will let others tell about the quality of the food and wine, as I have nothing to disagree with the positive reviews. What is most gratifying to me was to see his daughters, grown women, now, working the restaurant with the same, gentle kindness that their father used to have. The last time I saw them, they were little girls.

The food is delightful and the service friendly and warm. You won't be disappointed at Phoenicia.

A cozy atmosphere, gracious hosts, and terrific beach-front location are matched by the obvious love of bountiful flavours that are the key to their elegantly conceived and prepared fare. Pan roasted salmon on a bed of zaatar (from the owner's garden), balsamic braised lamb shank, fiery prawns, thin slice pizza, a warm plate of green olives, kale salad, chocolate creme brûlée - the menu is varied but concise. Prices range from very modest to special treat level. Wine offerings are varied but not overwhelming. Even the adventure that is parking near the Beach location is well worth the effort.
