It is really amazing how a restaurant with great ambiance and good food can quickly become an average restaurant due to poor service. Our party felt that the food and drinks were good although a bit overpriced at this Detroit Shoreway eatery. The deal breaker here was the service. I understand that they have a seasonal/rotating menu but the descriptions... More

Wonderful food, friendly and fast service, a great ethic, great atmosphere. I've been three times in the last couple of months and greatly enjoyed each visit. The menu changes with the season and according to what is available locally, but I've enjoyed every dish I've had and look forward to see what will be new on my next visit. Highly... More

A large group of us (13) visited Spice last night after attending an event down the street. The restaurant was about 1/3 full. We were asked if we had reservations when we arrived. I said we did not and asked if that would be a problem and was told 'Not at all'. We sat out on the patio and were... More

My friends and I came here and loved it! The atmosphere inside is great, but it was a warm evening so we sat outside on the patio, which is so nice! The sangria was delicious, and my sister got this gorgeous fuschia drink made with beets. We all got burgers and they were pretty good. What really stood out were... More

The only complaint I have with Spice, is that if you try something on the menu that you just LOVE, (and you will) it probably won't be on the menu on your next visit. This also makes it an exciting adventure. Sit outside if the weather is good. The patio is great. Enjoy an unusual drink at the bar. The... More

We've been to this place a few times and the only reason I give it an average rating is because the service was really bad. The food, once you finally get it, is very good. Unfortunately, we had a waitress that was only 18 years old, so she couldn't carry drinks. That resulted in ridiculous wait times to get our... More

A fun, casual bistro with an unusual menu and delicious food. We sat on the patio which was a treat on a lovely summer evening. For appetizers, 4 of us shared mushroom beignets and polenta chickpea French fries. The latter were so good we got a second order! The food orders were walleye, chicken, brisket chili, and fish/chips...only the chips... More

Went to Spice Kitchen & Bar tonight with my husband and another couple on the recommendation of our daughter. Spice did not disappoint! Cocktails were excellent (great bar - try the Purple Rain - yummy). Staff were terrific. Were seated for dinner and had a most delicious meal. Amongst the four of us we had the walleye, salmon and chicken... More
