Spice Bistro has something for everyone. We feature fresh seafood, gourmet burgers, along with food styles from around the world. Many of our dishes can be made vegetarian with vegan and gluten free available too. We have great views of the Siuslaw River Bridge and a cozy quiet place for you to enjoy dinner, lunch or happy hour drinks. We even have the famous Waterfront Depot Crab Encrusted Halibut made exactly the same way they do so if it is crowded there we got you covered.

I would recommend the restaurant to my friends. The service was great and our waiter actually seemed to enjoy serving us.

Wonderful selection of every type of food. Can be crowded and have a bit of a wait but worth it for sure! Crab crusted anything to me is heavenly.

This was a lovely find when we couldn't get in to Waterfront. Sister property and delicious! Small yet comfortable setting with outdoor seating as well. Fish tacos were excellent!

We were looking forward to checking out this restaurant for lunch based on previous reviews - the menu looked great as well as the ambiance - not too busy at lunch, but we were informed on walking in that there are no highchairs. We were willing to have our baby on our lap (our 3 yr old sits in a... More

Some of the best seafood dishes anywhere. This place also has romantic charm, arguably the best couples place in Florence. To top it off prices are very moderate. Probably the most underrated place in Florence.

Great atmosphere -- relaxed, good acoustics with background music and quiet conversation, live electric piano playing soft jazz; food was excellent -- crab encrusted halibut (as noted by others) and wild Alaska salmon with a ginger sauce that should be marketed! Nice view of the historic Siuslaw River Bridge & friendly service.

That was a special dinner. Not only because we had our 20th wedding anniversary, but the service on this evening was really "unlucky". It started very good, we ordered two really tasty califonian sparkling wines (our 17 year old daughter had to drink something else - from the german point of view a funny thing) and our "dinner". The sparkling... More

Small quaint restaurant owned by the same people as the waterfront venue across the street - STOP - GO HERE - the food was first class, the service outstanding and the pricing out of this world reasonable. Have the Crab Encrusted Halibut - it rocked my world

My daughter and I ate lunch here and we were both real impressed by the staff and food. The value was good. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

I had the Thai Chicken Salad which had an interesting mix of sweet chili and peanut sauce with noodles. But the chicken was sparse. Then I ate the Halibut Chowder which was a thin cream broth missing the halibut or potatoes typical of a chowder. Hense the name! I followed that by a grilled chicken sandwich which was fabulous.
