The Phoenician Steak House is the number one pick for a higher class dining experience in the area. Everything from the location in a quaint little town in the Catskills, to the subtle but outstanding dark plum purple paint on the interior walls that makes the ambiance really something to remember. That and the food of course….presentation and flavor all matched to perfection.

Lamb chops were not as good as before. Overcooked and tough. Chicken saltimboca excellent.

We do eat here once every 2 months or so. As with all restaurants at this time staffing is an issue but at the Phoenecian we are always pleased with our servers, even though they are stretched thin! We just arrive with the mindset that we will really enjoy our food and surroundings and if things take a bit longer it just means we have more time to chat! It's a pleasure to eat here.

Well we needed a restaurant between Albany Binghamton and nyc and well this was it! What a find! They were so accommodating to my special requests as it was a birthday. Overall great, broad, and creative menu with something for almost everyone. The service was exemplary even though it looked like they were short staffed. It was a Sunday night, crowded, we had rez and were seated immediately. The food was delicious, hot, and fresh. Two tomahawks, stuffed shrimp,
Pappardelle bolognese, and pork chop, Bacon Mac and cheese, and cannolis. Erin, our server was terrific. We will definitely be back.

Would have loved to hear jazz music instead of the elevator music.

Food was great, especially haddock and kale salad. Service was good, when the server was attentive...which wasn't all the time. The cocktails were a disappointment. Bourbon smash was watery and overwelmed by maple and ginger ale. I'm not sure there was actually bourbon in the drink. The gin/elderflower cocktail was also not lacking. Maybe larger ice cubes would help? Maybe 2 oz. of the featured alcohol? For $12-$14 drinks, the expectations were higher.

My party of 5 all had a good experience. Our waitress, can't remember her name but she had a slight accent, was very good. Kudos to her.

First time for two of my party, I've been there many times as has the other woman in the party.

The food was good but the prices are ridiculous. It’s like a city restaurant without the ambiance. Noise level thru the roof. Very hard to hear. Server was lovely but he couldn’t compensate for the cost or noise. Would we go back. It’s questionable.

I had a great time at this restaurant. The food and the service was on point but the cook on my steak was way over. I didn't bring this up to our server so I guess that's on me. Overall I love this place and will be going back in the near future.

The Phoenician Steakhouse has an open floor plan, very high ceilings, a super fireplace and expansive windows. The Catskills can be seen all around. The food is excellent and beautifully prepared. Noteworthy appetizers include choices from its Raw Bar; never a bad clam or oyster, a special fried oyster and ginger sauce, a fantastic New England Clam Chowder, beet salad; sometimes fabulous figs. The steaks and chops are done to your liking consistently. The pasta and fish entrees are delectable. They have created a glaze over filet mignon which is luscious.

The wait staff is attentive and congenial. They act as if they really are happy that you have come.

Celebrate the gorgeous Fall season in the Catskills at The Phoenician.

It was the best food I have had in two weeks.
Traveled to Massachusetts and then to the Catskills and it was my best meal by far.

Hostess was rude as soon as I walked in. She appeared stressed but why take it out on a paying customer. We sat outside and ordered wine and a $70 steak. They brought us the wine in a plastic cup… Our waitress was really sweet and the food was delicious. The bus boys at the restaurant were younger than 16 which seemed weird.. Hostess came back at the end to apologize for her behavior but still acted crass. Overall really good food but probably won’t go back because there was a lack of professionalism and class from the hostess.

We had a very nice wait staff. Our waitress was very sweet but managed to bungle some of our orders. She apologized and did fairly well after that. We order the 16 ounce steak. Four of us shared two ribeye orders. The steak was delicious. We had drinks and coffee. We were too full for dessert. I would not hesitate to return. The restaurant is lovely.

The service was fast . The food was good but the entree came out before we were finished with the app. Portions were generous but it is not a complete meal so you may need to order a la cart which ups the cost of a meal considerably. I would recommend this restaurant but bring your wallet.

Starting with the reservation where Erica even called to make sure the seating request was honored to the delicious meal itself with server Donal being very courteous and attentive, it was a memorable experience. We had not been in Phoenicia in many years when we used to frequent Ricciardella's a lot and now Mike is doing a fine job carrying on the family tradition making sure diners are very pleased with their meals.

My husband and I are vaccinated but our 11 year old triplets are not. We were up in Phoenicia for our vacation doing all outdoor activities. Having fun and avoiding CoVid! We decided to come to the Phoenician for our special dinner. When requesting seating for our table they were incredibly understanding and accommodating for our kids. We also ended up pushing our reservation back an hour and it was not treated as a problem. Cynthia was our waitress and she was wonderful. She was so kind. Made my son an ice cream Sunday with vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries in it and he told me is was the best ice cream he's ever had and wants to eat it this way forever! Food was delicious and we had an awesome evening. We will definitely come back to Phoenicia. When we do we plan on having dinner at the Phoenician and seeing Cynthia again!
