I had the pleasure of visiting St. Augustine a few months back. One of the nights there my boyfriend and I stopped at Spy for dinner. WOW!!! The food, atmosphere and music playing that night were spot on! We sat out in the patio area, which was great. The staff was all super friendly. Calvin, one of the owners came... More

Hi. I so remember talking to you about New Hampshire because our Manager is the only person I knew from there. I am glad you had a good time here and that you remember us. Thank you for sticking up for us as well. We try to provide the best service possible but on occasion we miss the mark. However,... More

There are many great restaurants in St Augustine but this is not one of them. Our food was mediocre at best and the service was a training ground for waiters. The place is so unorganized it is unbelievable. We were greeted by the hostess who was very attractive but that's pretty much where her gifts ended. She became perturbed when... More

My apologies for your experience. I offer no excuse for poor service, as you can see from the vast majority of our reviews this is not indicative of our normal excellent service. This is the first complaint I have received relative to our hostess however. We have shared this with both our hostess and servers as well as our entire... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. I really enjoyed speaking to both of you. As a fellow restaurant owner, I know you appreciate what it takes to consistently provide a great experience for customers day in and day out and it's nice to hear. Hope to visit your place one day and hope to see you back here... More

Went to Spy Global last night and sat outside and had some fantastic sushi. The music and atmosphere couldn't have been any better. I can't remember the name but the sushi that had the soft crab in it was amazing. The service was great and this will be added to our list of places to come back to.

As residents of St Augustine we are always walking around old Town. If you are familiar with old town, there are dozens of little restaurants lining the streets. We have walked by Spy dozens of times and always commented about the great patio dining and live music. We finally got a chance to visit with another couple and no kids,... More

Our server, Kaylee, was attentive. The seafood pasta and the avocado and tuna dishes we had were delish, the the place is dark, smelly, and a bit dingy- and not in an appealing hole in the wall Kinda way. Next time, we'll go for take out.

In the heart of downtown St.Augustine on Hypolita Street is the Spy Global Cuisine and Lounge. A fine dining restaurant featuring upscale global cuisine and a East Coast Saketini Lounge. We heard the music of local singer song writer Stu Weaver from it's fenced in court yard, so we decided to go in. The atmosphere was wonderful; never anything better... More

How to begin? First we ate in the courtyard on a beautiful evening. We were well served by two wait staff (sorry I forgot the Managers name) but it was Madison's first day and she did great. While we were enjoying our drinks listening to the live music one of the Owners came over and talked to us, he is... More
