Spice Kitchen and Bar is a great place to go on a date, with a group of friends, family, or just by yourself where you can cozy up to the bar and exchange healthy banter with any of the staff. Their food is refreshing, crisp, and their ever changing menu ensures you will never grow old of their dishes! I... More

Had a creative and delicious meal for a reasonable price. Love the 'sustainable plate' special. Something for everyone. Great service. Amazing donut dessert with basil pepper ice cream. Best dessert in Cleveland!

After finding a parking spot around the corner, we entered the restaurant and was immediately greeted with a warm smile. It was about 6:55pm and we had reservations for 4 at 7pm. It wasn’t overly busy so we had our choice of eating inside or outside on the back patio. The inside was cozy, but with great weather, we decided... More

Our party of 4 dined at one of the tall tables in the bar area. It was a bit noisy, but not bothersome. The waitstaff were extremely knowledgeable w/regards to drinks, menu items, etc. Everyone ordered something different and we were not disappointed. I had a wild mushroom ravioli that was amazing. The owner/chef came over and chatted, which was... More

The hostess who greeted us was very nice. We were seated at one of the tables at the bar section. If you would like to be able to hear each other from across the table, I recommend you do not sit there. The bar area is extremely noisy. The decor is interesting and eye-catching. The server was also nice, but... More

High prices for small portions. That basically sums up my experience. The food tasted pretty good and the service was good. The happy hour menu was extremely limited. Not a place to go for picky eaters. A good place if you want to spend a few extra bucks on fancy foods.

Our visist to Spice could not have been better. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. She was attentive without being overbearing. I had the soup of hte day as an appetizer-asparagus and pistachio. Heavenly! My dining partners also had a ramp and andouille flatbread and mushroom beignettes. Both were fresh and fantastic. The menu is great-local... More

We checked out Spice Kitchen after hearing the chef/owner Ben Bebenroth speak at a local event and seeing some great reviews online. We made a 7:30 reservation for Saturday night and the place was packed. We were seated promptly and greeted by Patrick our capable server. The decor was relaxed and elegant with soft lighting and neutral tones. We shared... More

In town from Denver, my parents wanted to take us to Spice. They visited a year ago and remembered it be a nice unique restaurant. Well, we sat in the front part of the dining are in front of the separation wall--big mistake. It was so loud in that restaurant that we couldn't even talk with each other across the... More

It is Tuesday night and we are expecting another big snow. Took my friend for her birthday and wow! Excellent. Great choice of cocktails and wine. Our appetizer was yum. We settled on shrimp bisque and beet salad, but there were so many good choices. We both had the ravioli and it was outstanding. Because of the snow storm which... More
