This little restaurant is the closest thing to "foodie" heaven we've found along this stretch of the Oregon Coast, and when we first visited Florence perhaps 20 years ago, there was nothing remotely like it in Old Town. Simply prepared seafood with international (mainly but not exclusively Asian) flourishes is the star here. I enjoyed the "Shellfish Madness" special. It... More

The Waterfront Depot was at capacity so the receptionist gave us a 10% coupon to use at their other restaurant Spice across the street. We decided to try it and we were thrilled with the result! The service was friendly but professional and timely, and the atmosphere peaceful and quite upscale feeling, a surprise in such a small town on... More

Small place, and very enjoyable. Tried new foods and enjoyed the variety. I would definitely return!

While having a different menu, the quality of Spice's ingredients and preparation ranks right up with its sister restaurant Waterfront Depot, which is across the street. All four in our group had a different selection of seafood and everyone was very pleased with their choice. No cocktail or tartar sauce here. The entrees include different but very tasty sauces. We... More

Bravo! Everything is obviously made from scratch here, with superb ingredients, terrific skill, great invention, and a great gift for tastiness. Amazing seafood and vegetarian options. Even their happy hour menu is fantastic! This is one of the new restaurants that recently opened across from the incomparable Waterfront Depot in old town Florence -- a place so good it's impossible... More

It's fancy Moroccan kinds feel. Been there twice now. Once with family once on a date. Service excellent! Makes me kinda giggle with the character they stay in. I LOVE IT! Nice selections of wine. Seafood buffet was amazing! Music live last time there. It was romantic. Fun. Drank wine fiancé had mojitos listened to easy music and the two... More

A refreshing change from the menu most restaurants seem to have these days, and every dish we had was skillfully prepared. From the oysters prepared 3 ways (gluten free if need be) to delicious beets & citrus salad to the veggie plate and halibut chowder - wish we'd had more people to try the other dishes. There were literally 10... More

This was our first visit to Spice, as we had a visitor and this is not normally my favorite cuisine, but I was delightfully surprised. I had the Mango Chicken and it was prepared to perfection and very tasty. J had the Seafood Bowl and our visitor had the Sea Bass, and both were terrific.Generous portions, but not so much... More

My husband & I had dinner here. The prices were high and the amount of food was small. The presentation of the food was excellent and the best part was the mango cheesecake. We left hungry and ended up having a snack later at another bar/restaurant.

We were given a 10% off coupon because the restaurant across the street was full. We enjoyed our dinner and desserts and there was a piano player as well. When we were reviewing the menu on the side walk, the hostess came and spoke to us. I found that hospitable so we went in
