We had the pleasure of dining at Spice in Gordon Square for brunch. It's a farm to table restaurant, and their menu features a list of all the seasonal ingredients they offer. Their farm produces 80% of the menu's contents and the waiters also spend time on the farm, giving them intimate knowledge of the menu. We started with the... More

It was a Sunday after a concert at the Bop Stop so the menu was limited, but all four in our party were pleased with their selections.

I went with my daughter and son-in-law who had been there before. They have both small plates and larger entrees along with an extensive wine list and selection of craft beers. We all had a very interesting pork chili along with an excellent flat bread that among other items had an egg. I would have never thought to do that... More

We went for brunch. Everything was fresh. The plates are well conceived with very satisfying flavor profiles. Worth it!

Spice is nice according to all the great restaurant reviews we read. Our vegan friends chose it because it has vegetarian items on the menu. Locating in Gordon Square, it has an inviting entrance into the bar with an attractive contemporary design. The meal started out on a promising note with spectacular mint juleps (the special) and the famed polenta... More

Loved this place. The food was fresh and very tasty. Loved the avocado toast and the beignets. The space is airy and bright. The service was very friendly. I only wish there were a few more vegetarian or vegan options on the menu.

Very much enjoyed this restaurant. The appetizers were great. Highly recommend the Polenta Fries - they were cooked perfectly. The chicken entree with quinoa was incredible as well. Service was a little shaky, the dining room was very busy. Would not keep me from going back again.

Wow. We had no expectations going in as we found Spice in the Cleveland Independents deck of $10-off cards. Ended up having happy hour; wines for $5, other drink specials, and select starters from the menu a few bucks off. Love that they print on their menu something along the lines of "These items come from our farm this week."... More

The restaurant is attractive. The menu is diverse and there is at least one special. On this visit it was duck. Many dishes have eggs on top. In some cases the eggs overwhelmed the item. My dish had very little flavor, although the servers had said it was spicy. People who had the duck seemed to like the duck. Also,... More

As Cleveland natives we have driven past Spice many times on our way to the Capitol Theater. Last evening we ventured into Spice and enjoyed one of our best Cleveland meals. Spice sources their food from local food purveyors and owns a farm in Brecksville--a Cleveland suburb. The food is fresh, healthy, and wonderfully prepared. We loved every single morsel.... More
