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.

My wife and I had a great dinner here. The server/bartender was very friendly and made great cocktails. My wife had delicious salmon tacos and I had a terrific "Bleu Scallop Carbonerollos" pasta dish. The total bill was only $50 for two dinners, three cocktails and two glasses of wine -- which we thought was very good. Highly recommend!

My friend and I had planned on dining at the Waterfront Depot but it was completely booked. They recommended to try Spice located right across the street. I am so happy we did! We sat at the bar and enjoyed visiting with Tim, the bartender - who just happens to be the owner as well. Then finding out in the... More

New ownership. Friends tell us it's wonderful. Cannot wait to try it. It has always been very good, but now friends are raving about it. We are not traveling; we are local.

We ate at Spice last evening (1/20/16) for the first time since the new chef/owner acquired it. The interior is completely refurbished and the ambience is very pleasant. The prosciutto wrapped scallops were excellent as were our entrees, seared ahi and the tornado plate. This kitchen is producing some of the best food in Florence. We would highly recommend it.

First time back since new owners took over. Excellent service by Sheena, as well as others whose names I didn't get. Nice atmosphere, a little more upscale than some of the restaurants in old town. A bit dark where we were seated. Food was fresh and flavorful, with nice presentation. Definitely quality over quantity. Portions adequate, although anyone looking for... More

Great seafood pasta! So much seafood and very filling for a good price. Great atmosphere;) We tried lamb ribs for today's special was pretty good. Owner is the chef and great place to try out. Small gathering is better. No baby changing table;(

My wife (vegetarian) and I (veg + fish) found Spice on a rainy weekday evening and gave it a chance ... It was a good decision. We come from Portland and have somewhat higher-than-usual standards ... Not snobby, but, you know, accustomed to the Portland level of food. We generally expect that we won't find places meeting that standard when... More

The new owner/Chef is wonderful. Their salmon tacos are great and their burger is the best in town. The first time we were here we ate a sampling of most of the appetizers all were very good. My husband really likes their Cesar Salad. Great wine list. A great addition to our little town.
