The mark of a great restaurant is whether the dishes exceed anything similar one can make at home. Tim is a chef with the magic touch, and we have had at least three dishes that rate as the best we have ever tasted. The Asian noodles were one- how can you get that incredible amount of flavor from noodles? And... More

Let me start by saying I do not usually have much in the way of negative comments. But the food was barely average, barely. The service was excellent, top notch for sure. We didn't want for anything. Now on to the food. The calamari was perfect, both in preparation and presentation. The crab cakes were less than impressive. Mostly filler... More

You are more likely to find this type of trendy/hip bistro in an urban setting than in Florence, but good for Florence! Spice offers a selection of creatively prepared and presented seafood, beef and Italian entrees along with plenty of wine by the glass or bottle. The restaurant and bar were bustling at the time of our visit and both... More

Been to most of the restaurants on Bay Street. This one by far is the best one. The dinner menu is well rounded with beef, chicken and fish entrees. Service was excellent. Nice view of the old bridge and river across the street. You will not be disappointed.

Menu posted at the door...walked right in and sat at the bar...immediately greated by all the staff...I enjoyed a couple of good local draft beers...but wine was a continual topic amongst the staff and patrons...I had poached Halibut which was fresh and excellent!

The boys LOVED their burgers...and my dry-aged ribeye was perfection on a plate...I only wish I had also heard how big it was going to be - it was 24 oounces!!! Everyone at the table shared it, and I still took home 1/3 of it!! :-)

This is really NW food, lots of seafood on the menu. Spice Bistro made me think it would be Indian or Thai. Service was a bit slow and the place was not busy. Those that had the seafood dishes loved their food. I had the burger and my fries were soggy not done in the middle. The presentation was lovely.... More

We have enjoyed dining at this restaurant. Not really a place for kids, it has a sophisticated menu that is superbly crafted and very delicious. We have tried the Crab Artichoke Halibut and the Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops and both tasted as great as they looked, with each plate looking like artwork. A full bar seems to be available but no...

My husband and I and another couple had a wonderful evening at Spice Bistro. Not only was our food prepared to perfection but the service was outstanding. We were never rushed and were given the time to talk without pressure. Our sever Micah was able to answer our string of questions and would always double check if in doubt. The... More

Spice Bistro has something for everyone. We feature fresh seafood, gourmet burgers, along with food styles from around the world. Many of our dishes can be made vegetarian with vegan and gluten free available too. We have great views of the Siuslaw River Bridge and a cozy quiet place for you to enjoy dinner, lunch or happy hour drinks. We even have the famous Waterfront Depot Crab Encrusted Halibut made exactly the same way they do so if it is crowded there we got you covered
