Fresno >Phoenician Garden
Best Restuarant in Fresno.
I wandered into this restaurant on Feb. 14 without realizing it was Valentine's Day. The whole restaurant was decorated in a most romantic way. My clothes were more like a homeless person's. The hostess came up, and asked very nicely "Do you have a reservation?" I have been to this restaurant before and always considered it one of the very best in Fresno. No reservation was ever needed before. I was tired after working all day and my hair was out of place and unshaven.
I was surprised by the reservation question and then seeing all the beautifully attired couples with a red rose in a vase on every table, with hearts and balloons beautifully arranged, it then occurred to me that it is Valentine's Day!! The natural thing was to leave. I was totally out of place. But I was hungry. It's also my birthday.
I said "no." She proceeded to explain to me gently that it would cost each person $29.95. The choices were enumerated for me and the dinner would be served with a glass of champaign and a dessert. I said "fine." I was seated at the best table available at that time rather than the open ones by the door. I chose the lamb chops. The dinner was exceptionally well prepared despite the big crowd in the restaurant. The dessert was specially designed for the evening. I would gladly pay $50 and still not necessarily be able to find a better place in Fresno to eat that particular evening.
This is written because after factoring in the courteous service, the exceptional tastes and the cost together with the special circumstance of my terrible appearance, I have to say that this must be the "best restaurant" in Fresno.
Delicious!. My wife and I were just about to go eat at Pacific Seafood when we looked inside the window of the Phoenician Garden, first thing that came out of my mouth was how elegant it really look, so we decided to go in and try it out..service was outstanding, environment was great, and most of all the food was delicious. I highly recommend everyone go try this place out, you honestly wont regret it. Now i can't go by a week without having their food at least two times! It's Great!
