on this visit to spice, we all loved their delicious takes on local cuisine - hello rhubarb salad and duck burger! However, while the server was very friendly, she also was very absent. Luckily, this hasn't been my typical experience with their service but we had a couple of first timers who were very unimpressed.

My wife and I love Spice and consider it to be one of the very best restaurants in Cleveland. The menu is relatively simple but when we bring friends, there is always something for everyone. Consistency is a hallmark of Ben the owner, and we have never been disappointed with the quality or the service. Portions are just the right... More

A group of four of us went out and had a wonderful time 'grazing' on small plates. We each ordered two different plates and shared. It was plenty of food for dinner. We had rhubarb salad, Spice Acres egg salad, braised pork meatballs, pan fried dumplings, olives, asparagus, Spice Acre pork skewer and two cheeses on the cheese board. We... More

Spice has been on our "must try" list for close to a year and I'm happy we finally made it. We dined there on a Wednesday evening around 7, and the restaurant wasn't crowded at all then, only one other party seated. Our server was quite attentive initially, due to the unpopulated room, and as it was our first time... More

We had a wonderful experience at Spice on 4/18. The restaurant is right in the midst of all the Gordon Square arts district traffic, which can make parking an issue. But don’t let that stop you. Chef Ben Bebenroth puts forth a very interesting menu, suitable for all, from gluten free to vegan. Because of the restaurant’s focus on sustainable... More

The Good - Unique menu and good food, fun atmosphere and great service. The Bad - Hard to find parking, Noisy, Not a great desert menu Bottom Line - Fun and different with good food and service. I'd go back.

Great food offerings for vegetarian, gluten free and others. Nice wine and beer selection. Salads, appetizers, entrees and desserts were all excellent. Substitutions were no problem. Fresh ingredients were much appreciated. Only minor surprise was the price. Check was a bit more than expected - maybe 15%. Probably due to wine, salads and dessert being a couple dollars more than... More

Being an out of towner, this place rocked! Loved the menu, great happy hour prices... Service was a little slow but the food and drinks made up for it! Must try the flatbread and "fries"!

I have been here twice for dinner - one time last summer and then this past Saturday night. Last summer our food was not that great and of course you compare the quality to the price and Spice is an expensive restaurant. This Saturday I ordered the steak and the duck confit macaroni and cheese. The steak was cooked well,... More
