    I randomly picked spice market from my open table selection for dinner and I'm glad I did! It was much better than I expected! We walked in and it was very spacious and nicely decorated. We had drinks at the bar then went to our table for dinner. The tables for two are a bit small. The food came out family style (which means whichever one is ready first, they will bring out) but we just ordered a bunch of appetizers. The lobster summer rolls were very light, a nice way to kick off the meal. The crispy sushi was delicious! The salmon tartare was probably the best thing we had there. The hamachi was also delicious. Then we had the shiitake lobster noodles which were okay. Service could have been much better but overall we enjoyed ourselves!

    We love Spice Market! My husband is an architect & he was very impressed with the restaurant design and choice of textures. Food is always outstanding. Some dishes are mild (chilli rubbed short rib) & others are intense (chicken samosas, brussel sprouts), so there is something for everyone. If you want something spicy/hot, make sure you tell your server, and they can also bring you some spicy mix to add to your dish. Try the ginger margaritas! I saw some reviewers complain about dishes not served all at once. SM serves family style, usually 1 or 2 dishes at a time, so if you want everything all at once you have to specify that when you order. Can't wait to come back in the warmer weather when the restaurant walls are all opened up!

    I'm in NY for a few days (from London) and had numerous recommendations of places to eat. I had to drop a few and I'm SO glad I didn't kick Spice Market. Fantastic food (you MUST try the chicken satay), great cocktails (ginger margarita my fav) and a good balance of smart and relaxing. It's going to be one of my select 'go-to' places whenever I visit.

    Dined on 10/24/2014
    We liked the "Spice Market". We just thought that the naked back of the waitresses, naked to the underwear, was not necessary at this season, the end of October. It looks peculiar and unappetizing. The dishes are brought by a muscled second rate waiter who literally throws the plates on the table, risking the sauce to spill out. Other than that, we had a good time.

    The flavors very not mixed very well, some of the food was not cooked to its optimal texture and taste (short rib was too firm, brussel sprouts were too burnt). Disappointing overall, would not return.

    We went there for my birthday and we were disapointed when the manager told us about the gratuity we leave. She came on our table in front of all our guests and she began to complain, what a shame ! The service wasn't so nice. Every Plate were came not At the same time. It was impossible to eat together.

    Spice Market does not disappoint and delights the palate with interesting Asian Fusion. You just want to keep coming back with another friend like I did. To finish off an excellent meal I sampled the sorbet with a dessert wine. I highly recommend the experience. Bring appetite, a cool dinner partner and book now

    Dined on 10/19/2014
    We has the lobster summer rolls, cauliflower dumplings, crab noodles, crispy pork belly and red duck curry. Starters and noodles were ok and we enjoyed the crab noodles the best. The crispy pork belly was chewy and pork fat was liquidy. Red duck curry had none of the usual fragrant aromas expected in Thai cooking. The first taste was a mouthful of salt followed by a weird burning on the front of the tongue. Inedible. We would highly recommend the ginger margarita .... And plenty of them. We were not asked the customary 'is everything ok' and the wait staff did not question why our food was virtually untouched. We commented to the staff about our red duck curry and there was no interest in our poor experience. We left underwhelmed.

    Honestly we had heard great reviews of the restaurant and wanted to try it out. We specifically waited until our last night in NYC cause we were expecting something off the charts. Although we felt the portions were generous, everything seemed to lack flavor! We said we liked HOT / Spicy dishes and were recommended a few but what we got lacked any heat at all. The setting Yes is beautiful, didn't live up to its name!

    We had reservations for 5:30pm. Even at that early dining hour the music was pumping loudly as if we were in a disco. The mix on the music had the base levels set way too high. We weren't even able to hear our waitress go over the specials for the evening. We requested the music be turned down and they did not accommodate us. Awful. Fantastic food, gorgeous restaurant that management is treating like a disco. We've been to this restaurant 6 times and this sound problem will keep us away for good.

    I am so glad my boyfriend and I chose to go to Spice Market on our recent visit to NYC. It was without a doubt an amazing choice! We were seated in comfy leather seats in the corner of the room which made it romantic and comfortable. We both did the tasting menu (which I highly recommend). The food was amazing. The price wasn't bad. The service was great. I give this place two thumbs up.

    A vast space, some of it quite lovely, with what feels like an army of servers bringing forth gigantic plates of food. Most of it was good and some very good, although too many fried items appear on the menu, to the exclusion of fresh items. But no wonder. It feels like an industrial operation churning out hundreds of meals each evening. Still, I can't complain about the location or the vibe.

    Spice Market is my favorite restaurant in the city--my husband's also. The food is fresh, creatively prepared, and singular--no other restaurant has these flavors. I will go back there as long as it exists. I introduced my daughter to this restaurant. She introduced her friends, and so it goes. It's hard to get a reservation, but worth the aggravation. The food is well-timed so that you don't feel rushed or waiting too long for a course. A good meal should last two hours and if you do an appetizer, main, and dessert, those two hours go by very quickly. Almost perfect dining experience.
