We have visited Phoenecia on Alki for several years on New Year's Eve. It really is a great place. The atmosphere, the food, the wine, all of it is very good. Never fear asking Hussein to just find you something you would like--I know the previous reviewer said something about the wine list being weak, but it turned out there were several bottles of wine that were similar to something on the wine list but weren't actually listed. Anyway, the grilled king salmon is excellent, as is the roast lamb. No question, this is one of my favorite places.
