    Don't bother. Food tastes manufactured, too much coconut. Tried to seat us at two-top literally in hallway to bathrooms. We moved as did at least one other couple before they found so wine to 'enjoy the view '. Not worth the money.

    Excellent food. Wonderfull service. It was just like being in SE Asia except you could drink the water. We went for a teenager's birthday. Every one had a great time. We shared lots of dishes among the family everyone had more than their fill. The stripped bass and chicken somosa were the best. Some of the dishes were a little too spicy so ask about the spice. Four people with drinks $170 or so I thought it was excellent value. The service was friendly and very attentive. What more could any one want in a restaurant.

    The Spice Market is a block away from Highline Park. It's a great place to take a date after a walk in the park. The kitchen closes at 1 am so u can stay out late. The atmosphere is great and the food is also. The service was excellent and friendly.

    The food was poor bland with no tast. I had 3 dishes the COD, Duck and another fish dish and I did not like any of them. To be fair I had two good salads before my meal but the meal is supposed to culminate the entire experience. I sat outside which was not back but all I remember from this experience is the poor food. My worst lunch in the City and it cost me $120.

    Great venue, beautiful interior, delicious food. Clearly this restaurant has some big backers and they're trying to get their money's worth. It was like being on a corporate conveyor belt 'get them in, feed them, get them out'. Drinks were being cleared before we finished them, the food arrived in what felt like seconds, and the check was given to us before we asked for it. It was annoyingly efficient. Chill out with the service - it was really irritating. What should have been a good meal, was disappointing. But judging by the line to get, corporate management doesn't bother everyone.

    Nice location near High line. Popular place for dating, but also a romatic place for married couples. We had a chefs' recommendation menu, which was bit of a dissappontment. Next time we choose from the menu ourselves. First, but hopefully not last visit to this place.

    This place is the whole package - good food, good service, great energy, great ambiance. The place is massive, so you can actually get a reservation in this Meatpacking District restaurant. It's a fun place for groups - they have separate rooms with couches/cushions around a table...it's really cozy and intimate; the food you order is all meant for sharing, and in smaller portions so you're ordering a lot of different things to try. I've been here a couple of times, and love it. The samosas, steak skewers, shrimp garlic noodles are all unique and tasty; the salmon tartare is bland - skip that. The better seats are the booths upstairs, in my opinion, so request those when you book a table.

    The ambiance is beautiful but the service was poor. We were celebrating my wife's birthday & our waiter basically forgot about us. The forgot to bring a couple of dishes & the other dishes (vegetables) were so late that my wife was finished with her meal by the time it came out. My wife's friend who is also a concierge spoke to the manager & he did not come over to appologize. The appetizer was better than our entree. My husband & I love to eat out & we love to try every place at least once but we will not recommend

    Delicious delicacies in tasteful settings. I dined at this restaurant in New York, Meatpacking and had the pleasure of sampling some of he dishes. The selection is generous and whilst sipping on the classic Bellini I chose Duck and sticky rice as my main dish. It's rich, think texture captivates the senses with an added touch of sweetness.

    I chose to go to this restaurant because the kitchen was open until 12:30am, which was fantastic after stepping out of a late night plane. The atmosphere was fantastic and it was a great dining experience. The starters were delicious (especially the chicken samosas) but I found the two fish we ordered as entrées to be slightly too bland. Overall great experience, wonderful and attentive staff. Will go again!

    This was my first time at Spice Market and I brought my boss who is from St. Louis. She loved it. This is not only a really eclectic and interesting building and decor but the food was mouth watering. Service from Brett, our waiter was spectacular. We asked him to advise us on the best dishes and everything he helped us pick was mouth watering. Food is a little spicy so you need to love spice. The homemade soda was also fun and refreshing.

    Lovely, airy, comfortable space conducive to talking and lingering a bit. Interesting and varied menu. The pork vindaloo was complex and not too hot, the corn soup had great depth and the foam on top addded texture and extra flavor. The serving sizes were larger than we expected. The service was very warm and attentive wihout hovering, very professsional.

    We ate downstairs having been warned that the 1st floor would get noisy and hectic- it was! Our whole table ordered the prix fixe dinner with wine pairing. Most of the food was great, but the Pork shoulder with Jasmine rice was underwhelming. The wine were just OK. But we enjoyed the experience and felt like we had left the country for dinner.

    Every time I make it back to NY, can't miss my chance to visit the Spice Market. If you love flavor, great service and a cool vibe, you don't want to miss out on this one. My personal fav's to eat and drink: maine lobster (OMG) the spicy chicken samosas, ginger margarita (insane) and if you like steak - I'm not usually a big fan unless it's really good - the ribeye is amazing. Make sure you dip in the blackberry jam. I promise you will be hooked for life!

    We chose the restaurant week dinner menu. We made the mistake of ordering an appetizer with shrimp and the fish main course. Both were very good but they were exactly the same except the appetizer was called soup and was finished with cilantro. The main course was served in a sauce that was exactly like the soup except it had fish and basil instead of shrimps and cilantro. The wine parings were not great. A sparkling wine with the appetizer, a pinot noir with the main dish, and a desert wine that I didn't like.
