“Very good but expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This restaurant is located in what I think of as the East Liberty area at corner of Highland ave and Centre ave. Valet parking is available in front of BRGR ( a sister restaurant) which is just around the corner on Centre.

I would say that the motif is modern with some couches near the bar area and table to the right and left of bar. Also appeared to have some tables in an interior courtyard.

We had the Gorgonzola souffle as an appetizer which was very unique but not too cheesy but little eggy. One of us had Seared duck for main entree which was very good and the other chicken dish which was very moist and tasty. We ordered side of baby roasted vegetables which were again very good. They had several selections of wine by the glass with generally one selection for the most popular types.

Overall we enjoyed it very much but is a pricey place so probably reserve for a special outing

“Great Food and Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Spoon was very creative in the use of quality ingredients. The food was very flavorful! The Gorgonzola soufleé was very light, airy, and unique in taste. We were pleased with the food and the dining room experience. Some of the dishes that stood out The pork two ways, rabbit with pasta, and the Spoon Burger. Service was good, and we had pleasant experience overall.

“Very good restaurant!”

I have been to spoon a couple of times and both our experiences were great. The food was excellent, service was great and price was fair. They made every effort to accommodate me (vegetarian).
