“Delicious and Different.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

While visiting from Toronto for a Bachlorette Party, we had dinner at Spice Market and we all enjoyed the Shrimp with Pineapple. It was delicious! Most of the items that we had ordered were filled with a fusion of flavour and we definitely ate well. The restaurant interior and ambiance was perfect for our evening out. Although, this experience wasn't cheap but worth the splurge. Located in the Meatpacking district, it was busy but made for a great spot to dine and dance close by afterwards. If you go, try the shrimp!! YUM.

“Great Place...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Last year we had the opportunity to visit the Spice Market in NYC, the drinks were good, the bar area for waiting was nice, the food was very good and the price was ok for the hype we had heard about the restaurant

“over hyped, over priced, poor quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We heard so much about this place and a few years ago it was good. Unfortunately - they have fallen down and this is a place to miss.

service was friendly, there was a good vibe - but they take advantage of the fact that they are popular. Our wine pairing for the dinner, although reasonably prices - was atrocious. Poorly paired wines - and the last wine a muscat - was actually watered down... Did they think we would not notice? The waiter was not surprised when we noticed this and they took all the glasses back and returned (20 minutes later) with new un-diluted muscat..... in their defence, they didn't charge us for 3 of the 6 wine pairings!!

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We enjoyed the delicous food and the lud, humming atmosphere of the very unique restaurant. it was one of the best meals we had in NYC. While it is not on the cheap end of New york food we thought it was very good value for money.

Unbelievably huge place. Packed with people in the meatpacking district. Unique ambiance and tastes. Loved the lobster main dish. Try it.
