Phoenix >Fenix Bar & Eatery
With a French influence, even jaded diners might find a treat here.
My wife and I eat out often and even after 5 visits, Fenix continues to please. Definitely French influenced, we've had really good luck with the beet salad, Mussels appetizer (spectacular, but it ain't no diet food), braised short ribs and daily seafood specials. We've also had the lemon tart dessert which could be the best dessert I've ever tasted in Phoenix. The atmosphere is not too fussy almost making it a neighborhood place, yet nice enough to accommodate a special meal. Service is also French-influenced making dining making for an attentive, yet pleasant staff. I might shave a couple points off of a perfect score beause I haven't been wowed by any of the wines; Reasonable selection, tasty and well-kept, but we haven't found a star yet.
After great food, great service and a great dessert, the bill doesn't break the bank either. I don't know if I've topped $130 for two on any of our visits.
One other attribute, we haven't tried the bar, but it looks rather comfortable if dining as a single, though it's not the most buzzing bar in town -- just good food.
Fantastic menu, service and atmosphere. Best anywhere in the valley.. My wife and I have dined at Fenix a few times. Both of us eat out a lot for business and are a bit more critical than your average diner. The menu here is spactacular! My scallops and salmon were amazing (it's the wonderful French sauces!). The atmosphere is very upscale and relaxing. Our service each time has been top notch. This is what you get when the head chef is the owner. This place is one of the best kept secrets in the valley. I highly recommend treating yourself to the unique dining experience!
