SPY Global Cuisine provides a relaxing setting highlighted by a wide variety of dining options. Our kithchen offers premium steak, chicken and pork dinners as well a special seafood dish featuring lobster, scallops and shrimp. We serve a great Teriyaki Stir Fry and Thai Cocunut Curry dish with options to add meat or shrimp. We are renowned for our fresh Sushi and Sashimi which features a number of "fusion" specialty rolls that appeal not only to Sushi lovers but first time samplers as well.

Hidden Gem in Old Town St Augustine

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... read 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

We walked around St. Augustine for a bit, feeling overwhelmed by the amount of restaurants when we came across Spy. They have a wide selection of food, including sushi. The sushi came in large portions and was fresh and fantastic. They put a new spin on some sushi classics, such as the California roll which they use snowcrab in (rather... More

Maybe I caught this place on the wrong night. We were seated outside, they have plenty of heaters so you are comfortable even if it's a little chilly. We were served cucumber water and our appetizer arrived quickly.... even befor our drinks. We only ordered wine, so how difficult can that be. We finished our Asian potstickers appetizer, which was... More

Valentine Day dinner at Spy was awesome! Service was very attentive and the kitchen performed flawlessly. Our favorite appetizer remains the Tuna Guacomole (check it out!), and my wife and I had a couple new rolls we had not tried before. They were excellent. We had the Volcano and Mexicali rolls. Add some Momokowa Pearl saki and we had a... More

I got sushi and it was pretty good. The rest of my meal wasn't that good. My sister's meal was not what she ordered and when she told the waitress. Instead of making it right. After 15 minutes of a meal sitting in front of her, waiting for the waitress to return. Instead of bringing her what she ordered. The... More
