“something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

The menu is eclectic and the food good. They were able to accommodate us at a late hour, which we really appreciated.

“Good restaurant, Bad service day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant with its unusual menu is an unexpected gem in Florence. We seemed to hit a bad night for service. Food was mostly tasty, but service really disappointed, save the young man who kept our water glasses filled. We moved our eaten-appetizer dishes to the bar, and they were still there when we left after the main course. Please do pay attention to service, Spice; it matters.

“This was very good...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

We called The Waterfront Depot at 3 PM for a reservation tonight. 1st available time would be 9 PM. No thanks. A little after 6 PM, we walked into Spice (across the street) which I think is related to the Depot and had a wonderful meal. Service was excellent; prices fair and a comfortable LITTLE spot. She had crab cakes (4) and I had the special lamb curry. Both dishes were delightful and service was prompt and friendly. Server even gave instructions on the curry as it came with rice in one container, curry in another, and the condiments including a wonderful chutney in a couple more. Impressive and delightful..

“New Discovery by a Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We went to Spice tonight on the spur of a moment…and mind you, we live here in beautiful Florence. We typically go to her sister restaurant, which was maxed out when we arrived so we crossed the street to Spice. So glad we did. Excellent bartender served us an excellent Dirty Martini, and we then proceed to eat an excellent meal. Everything on the menu was right up my taste sensation, and as a result, we will be returning to this wonderful gem in our own backyard! Children were present, but I feel it really is more of an adult environment and menu.

“Great find in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Coming from Seattle, I've tried many different Asian and Asian fusion restaurants. Here at Spice, I had the clams and mussels in a coconut milk curry. The flavors blended so well with about a two star spice rating (they don't ask for stars). Ginger, garlic, onions, lemongrass, bay leaves - it was a delicious mixture of Thai/Vietnamese flavors. I liked having the flatbread to absorb the broth, but would have preferred a thicker bread or a bowl of rice. Either way, that bowl was dried out by the time I was through with it! Excellent restaurant with friendly service.
