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.

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

The elegant yet modern design of Spice Kitchen and Bar is very welcoming with beautiful brick and wood interior. Natural light from the large windows open up each area. Food is delicious with a menu selection to satisfy any palate. Great staff and service.

WOW this place is amazing!! Fresh food, friendly staff & a great decor. From the cocktails (absolutely love "Pressed to Impress) to the main entreé's that were so good and the wonderful desserts (Apple Tart was one of the best I have ever had). We enjoyed the entire meal! The employees really seem to enjoy their jobs and it shows... More

I finally dined here after hearing about it for a while. I was quite pleased. I had a glass of wine at happy hour pricing ($1 off). My companions shared a bunch of appetizers that they raved about. My entree, ratatouille polenta was good, but non-traditional. I expected the creamy polenta, this was more 'whole-grain' in texture, but very good.... More
