    When I made the reservation, I was not aware this was a hotel (Marriott) restaurant. Most of the reviews seemed positive, I'm not sure why. I made reservations for 2 but had to sit at a table for 6, possibly 8. The service was a bit slow even though the restaurant was not too crowded. We had the special Valentine dinner for 2 which included a shared appetizer, a soup or salad each, an entree each, and a shared dessert. My wife and I both ordered salmon, mine grilled, my wife's blackened. Both pieces were overcooked and quite tough. Mine came with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus; the potatoes were so so, the asparagus was good. The cake seemed a bit chilled so was not very moist and lacked flavor. The red wine was weak. Cost @ $100.00

    Very disappointed that the outdoor seating isn't year-round with heaters. This place is a very well-kept secret that needs to be better advertised, because the food and atmosphere are both some of the best in town.

    Food was typical hotel quality, no fire-grilled entrees, limited menu. Quite expensive for the offering.

    Sparks is the ideal place for a business traveler. It is a nice setting with good food and good service. Most importantly, you can sit with a group of people and all hear each other well and can actually accomplish things. I ate here 3 days in a row bc I had people to see for those nights, and I couldn't think of any better place (I frequently travel to Spartanburg) if we actually wanted to talk and also have really good food. In the past, I have sat at the bar and eaten alone, which can be depressing at some places, but it was quite fine here. The only negative is that the wine list does not come close in quality (or quantity, but less important) to any moderate or upscale restaurant in NYC.

    I travel to Spartanburg from Manhattan a lot, so let's keep in mind that everything is relative. Sparks is easily the best restaurant in the city. The food is good by any standard, the service is extremely friendly and it is a quiet place to sit alone and work while you eat, if you are there on business. In the bar area there are plenty of plugs, which again makes for an easy place to work. Plus, the Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding is truly outstanding by any standard (plus, coming from NYC, for what it is the prices are incredibly cheap).

    The first issue of the night was parking for this particular resturant. It would have great if i was a guest at the hotel the resturant was connected to but I was not. So I had to park 2 blocks away. The next issue that I had with the resturant was the service. It was horrible. It took the waiter about an hour to take our drink and food orders and just as long for us to receive those orders. I thought that I was a victim of the TV Show "Punked" the service was so bad. The only upside to this experience was the food was really good...my hat is off to the chef!
