Beautiful Space, Very Good Food

We recently had dinner at Sitka and Spruce on a Saturday night. We would recommend making reservations because there is limited seating. The menu is eclectic and curated to take advantage of whatever is fresh. We tried the dumplings, melon with blistered peppers, pork loin/belly and hazelnut... read more

We had to wait for 2 hours to get our dishes whereas we saw the other diners who arrived way after us get served much faster... Although the food was good, the portions are very small and expensive for what you get. When I mentionned the waiting time to the server/failed actor he got into an argument with me...

The place looks a bit strange, kind of like a converted warehouse, but very nice. The dishes are very unusual, on small plates meant for sharing. This is definitely a foodie place. Eight of us had dinner there and ordered all sorts of strange things, all of which were delicious. They also have amazingly good bread, and lots of different... More

After hearing about Sitka & Spruce from several friends, I decided to try it for lunch this week, with a friend visiting from out of town. I can only say friends had under, not over, stated how great this place is. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, without hovering. The menu, was focused on a few locally-grown, imaginative items, rather... More

Four friends grabbed brunch in this adorable cafe inside a small market in early August. The food couldn't have been more fresh and delicious. The food is made within a kitchen area that viewable, and it includes mainly fresh veggies, herbs, fish and eggs. The setting is very charming including wood tables, open windows and fresh flowers around the entire... More

What an intimate dining experience for the 8 of us during a birthday celebration. We all enjoyed the tasting menu that was a delight from beginning to end. The pricing was a value considering the exceptional quality and preparation of each dish. We could not have been more pleased for a memorable group birthday dinner.

We stopped here for lunch at the recommendation of a friend. We walked here on a hot summer day. It is not air conditioned. It was an issue at first, but after sitting for awhile we didn't really notice the heat as they had fans running and the windows open. It is a nice space with a store in the... More

Dined here for a lite lunch with friends. The menu was delightfully varied and the offerings thoroughly enjoyed. Presentation was excellent. The tuna sausage was unique. It was a little drier than anticipated, but the taste was light and the fish flavor not overpowered by seasonings.

If you're going to spend real money for a nice dinner, wouldn't you expect the restaurant to at least have air conditioning? Tried to go there for dinner last night. We were really excited and we had our hotel make a reservation for us. It was 9 at night and it was still in the low-80s outside. We walked into... More

I've been here about three times now and each time I've ordered something different, and each time it's been amazingly creative and delicious. They offer seasonal ingredients and dishes. I love the ambiance of the place which is a restaurant within a community of other businesses which work and fit well together. The restaurant itself is very open with an... More
