Diner Reviews
  • "I was disappointed, frankly. First the good: Restaurant is beautifully decorated. Wood carving is spectacular. Ambience is energetic. Now the not so good: We had to wait 35 minutes for a table--that's not the end of the world if that were the only issue. Altough diners are advised that food "comes out when ready," some at our table waited for too long to get thier food while others were almost done with their course. Our main "server" rarerly stopped by. We were served by anyone who picked up our food at the open kitchen located 15 feet from us. Becuase the restaruant was packed on a Friday night, I felt like service was by assembly line by multiple strangers. Food was moderatly good but nothing special. I'd pass on going back."

  • "Very Nice. Service took a while but it worth it. Very good service and ambient. Food spicy and exotic. Ice cream was ok. Pound cake is not worth it."

  • "I have been to spice market over a dozen times, and this was absolutely the worst service I have received in such a long time. Waiter was not attentive to the table whatsoever. Experience is not only food but the service. Waiter took our appetizer order, delay to get bottle of wine, another waiter took the main course order, which turned out to be all wrong and missing dishes. Sister came to the table 2-3 times the entire evening (to take app order, when I complained to manager, to give us the bill). We sat waiting to order a second bottle of wine for over 25 min when the 1st was finished. Bus boy brought the dessert menu and no one ever came back for another 20 min. Finally asked for check and that was wrong. I could have flown to miami"

  • "Nothing less than outstanding. Food was unique and delicious from appetizers to dessert. The service was impeccable. Friendly yet professional didn't miss one thing. Recommend for business lunch, personal lunch, nightime it's popping. See and be seen. Well worth it."

  • "My husband and I dined at Spice Market on the evening of the 23rd July. The ambiance and the décor of the restaurant is glorious. The food and the service was exceptional. We chose the restaurant week menu - heavenly food. I can recommend this restaurant for their exceptional food and excellent service."

  • "We waited 45 minutes for the appetizers and when we questioned it, they served our entrees first because they were "ready". One person in our party was served all her courses before we got our meals so she essentially ate alone. We waited for the entrees over 30 minutes when we asked for them back. Everyone should be served the same courses at the same time. The restaurant was not that busy. Other tables had their entire meals and we were still waiting. The manager did compensate us for the delay with complimentary wine but if you want to take over 2 hours for lunch and have all the courses served in the wrong order, this is the place for you! By the way, the food was good!"

  • "Our server was slow to attend to our table and give us menus. I noticed all other tables were given hot towels and chips. My setting was missing a fork and no one bothered to give me one. My server never got my second drink order."

  • "Went for RW lunch..started with the spicy chicken balls...large portion and very tasty. Then had the pork belly buns...served open..like very soft tacos...delicious. Ended with poundcake with peaches. Added the wine pairing and got 3 very good , good pours. Was very impressed with service...esp their patience with next table. Dad with two young daughters, around 8 and 10?..tells server girls don't like anything spicy or raw...Hello an Asian place called Spice Market is perhaps not your best choice esp. since he said he'd been there before so knows the deal and there are Italian, Mexican, burger, pizza, French, etc. nearby. After first course ordered was "too spicy" , he was a bit testy, servers perfectly calm ,and ended well."

  • "Went here for a birthday gathering with 8 other people. 1st time I came here it was extrmely crowded and they had our table elbow to elbow. Not the case this time thankfully. Came here primarily for the duck and guess what? They ran out. Service was subpar and food was just ok. Come here for the ambience, not the food."

  • "We visit spice market London at least twice a year so we knew what to expect. The food is meant to be shared and it doesn't come all at once. The food in New York was up to its usual standard. It tasted fresh and was full of the right flavours. Service was a bit less. For the first time we didn't get a hot towel or their delicious spicy sauce with crisps... Maybe our waiter forgot, because we did see them at other tables. We didn't ask for them because it was very busy and by the time we realised we weren't getting them at all, our first starter had arrived. After this first hickup everything went pretty much as expected. We prefer to go to spice market for a lunch, since it's much calmer and quieter then."

  • "This was my 3rd time at Spice Market, I must say the food is good each time I have been here, however this time the service was slow. We could only get reservations for 8 people on Sunday at 5pm. The wait staff was not attentive at all, I advise my daughter had nut allergy ( she had been there 2 years ago with me and no isaccsue) we ordered meals without nuts. When one of us tasted a peanut in our food the explanation was it may have gone in by accident. This is NOT acceptable if you have a nut allergy in your party. Restaurants are usually honest if they can accommodate special request and they said they could. They simply said sorry and took it off the bill. Very disappointed...."

  • "This is always one of my faves, easily my 6th time dining here. This night was extremely special because I was asked to officiate my friends wedding. A night i will never forget. To top it off the food was also unforgettable. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. A little bit of everything. Unbelievable. This is a great place for a special evening with friends or loved ones."

  • "My husband and I shared appetizers and main courses and thought everything was delicious. The shrimp dumplings and the Vietnamese chicken were particularly outstanding. The restaurant is very exotically decorated and makes you feel like you might be dining in the Far East. The only criticism I have is the music which is way too loud!!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I've been to Spice Market several times. The food has always been great! This time was no exception. There had been changes to the menu since the last time I visited, which meant that some of my favorites were gone. Their replacements were equally as tasty. The service was a bit slow, with one of my guests not receiving her lunch entrée until the rest of us had nearly finished. The waitresses explanation was that it was a new dish and that's why it took longer to prepare? Roasted chicken? Still worth the trip."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food is always wonderful, and the setting is gorgeous. The only slight problem was that the music was so loud it was almost impossible to have a conversation. Despite that, I'll keep coming back!"

  • "We are repeat visitors - it is hard for a restaurant to maintain excellence year after year, and that Spice Market has done this is a testimony to the professionalism shown all the way through the meal, from the reservations process through desert. We were celebrating two birthdays on this visit, and had a party of five. I had requested seating in one of the private rooms downstairs and it was accommodated. This privacy made the dinner even that more special. If you have a party of 5 or more, request this feature - you will not be disappointed! We all had the chef's tasting menu, and each morsel of food was delectable. There are five seperate course on this menu, and although the portions were not huge, none of us left feeling hungry."

  • "My partner and I were visiting NYC. We had heard about the Spice Market from people in Edmonton AB and decided to give it a go. I want to go back already! It was exceptional food and exceptional service. We did the tasting menu and wine pairings and were not disappointed in a single thing."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "It doesn't get much better than this in NYC! The atmosphere is absolutely stunning on its own and the food is to die for. If you pick one place to visit- this is the way to go!"

  • "28 degrees celsius outside and at least +30 degrees inside due to problems With AC. No one told us anything but we saw People been mowed downstairs and overheard a comment about the AC. Not offered a table downstairs although there seemed to be available tables. The waitress was not to happy about the temprature either, and that reflected on the service. In this heat the spicy food was just another hot part of the experience. Probably better on a cold evening..."

  • "The food is uniformly Good though the atmosphere was very vibrant and Frenetic. It is Not a place for a quiet meal. The restaurant was very crowded at 10 PM on a Saturday with a lot of people crowding the rather small bar. The tables are close to one another. The one quirk is that food is brought to the Table when ready even if it means different times of arrival for various dishes. In our case the food arrived before the cocktails though it was probably the effect of an extremely crowded . Good for groups and those wanting a lively scene. But not for those desiring a quiet meal. The Steamed Red snapper in Tomato and Lemongrass broth and the Seasonal veg fried rice with Mint and ginger were very well prepared."

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The service was very good as well as the food. If you like spicy food or food with spices, this is the place to go ! We had the tempura sea bass and the pork ribs as appetizers and it was delicious ! The egg noodles were also amazing ! We were a bit disappointed with the pork vindaloo that we found covered with too much spices. But overall the food was excellent. The staff is very helpful and nice. The only negative point I would say is that the food is coming too fast. I suggest that your order your plates one after the other. The waiter told us that the food would come as soon as ready with no specific order but we thought they would at least give us the time to finish one dish before bringing us the next one. Would come back though."

  • "Our experience here was outstanding! My husband and I decided to try the tasting menu and the wine tasting to accompany it. The best choice ever! I would highly recommend this restaurant when in NYC to all my family and friends!"

  • "The ambiance at the Spice Market is so well done and beautiful. We were there on a warm night and the windows were all wide open, the building and the interior design was so gorgeous that it actually put all of us in a good mood regarding our dinner choice for the night...but then the food came. Every single thing we ordered was "just ok". It was very salty and the flavors were not complex at all. Every single person at our table (4 of us) felt the same way. It has the potential to be so amazing but it truly dissappointed all of us. Fix the good and it would be a must see place!"

  • "I was able to easily make a reservation with less than two week's notice, so that was a plus. The restaurant is conveniently located on a of 2 streets in the meat market district, so it has good views. I like the eastern garb that the servers wear; it is different than the usual restaurant uniform. The service was very attentive and prompt. The food--a fusion of various Asian and other cuisines--was excellent! The chicken and pork appetizers were so good that my dining companion and I ordered more to go."

  • "After being away from this wonderful restaurant for almost a year, what joy it was to treat my niece to a 21st birthday lunch, with a one on one Auntie/ niece time at Spice Market. Indeed it was sublime. Despite her sensitivities to several food items, she was able to find a dish and a drink that she liked. Our server was flawless in his attention and knowledge about the menu. Indeed it was a comforting return to one of my favorite resturants - just sublime."

  • "Misses wanted to try SM and made an event with some family. Ordered half of the appetizers and 'mains' (everything is share friendly). The chicken wings were spiciest; the mushroom egg rolls and it's 'aioli' like sauce were great; peanut sauce on chicken skewers were tasty. The steak was awesome and went with the ginger fried rice smashingly. Would go back."
