    Their boneless baby back ribs are Devine. Probably the best ribs I have had. Unfortunately their lobster entree was just as bad and not worth $40. It was over powered by garlic.

    Went on recommendation and will send my friend flowers. Absolutely stunning! From the design to staff, cocktails and even birthday surprise! The food is subtle, pad THAI best I've ever had, duck curry as smooth as velvet and the shrimps with pineapple knocked us off our feet. I am a passionate cook and specialise in Asian food, I will definitely take a leaf out of the Spice Market book for my future creations in the kitchen! I just want to go back...

    Went to the Spice Market on a Saturday night with a group of girls visiting NYC for a girls' weekend. We had found this place last year and loved it. The ginger margaritas are to die for. We have tried to replicate them many times over the last 12 months. The food and atmosphere were awesome, too. Really cool vibe. So, when planning our trip this year, going back here was a no-brainer. Once again, we were impressed with every aspect from service, to music, to the ginger margaritas, to the food. The chicken satay is the best I have ever had and the samosas were incredible. We had a blast and probably will never visit the city without dining here. Enjoy!

    We are all foodies, and we absolutely loved the Spice Market. Cool feeling to the space -- the music was perfect for the atmosphere, but the food is the reason we're going back. People at our table were literally moaning and gasping with each new dish. We all had the sampling menu, and the quality of the ingredients and the flavors were just top shelf. Best NYC dinner in a very long time.

    I had an excellent evening at the Spice Market. The atmosphere was great, the decoration outstanding and the food was magnificiant, for a very reasonnable price. The only little shadow I found was the too rapid speed of service which slowed down when we said that we weren't in a rush.

    Made reservations and got there early. Hung out at the bar. The only thing was the bar stools at the bar were incomfortable..nowhere to put your feet. Wasn't sure what to expect with food but was pleasantly surprised. The tasting menu was filling, tasty and they were accomodating to GF options. We loved the atmosphere. Will definitely go there again on next trip to NYC

    Well designed interior not supported by it's kitchen. Food is no where close to what you'd expect to find in one of NYC's finest restaurants. Additionally, the waitresses in their Dream of Jeannie outfits makes one feel as though one is eating in a Disney Land cafe This is a restaurant with robust prices that should have food driving it not gimmickry How disappointing ...it certainly is not Vong. Next time I am in the area I think I'll go back to Perry Street.

    Everything we tried was excellent. I had the Raw Platter. The tastes and textures were all amazing and unexpected. It felt like having a party in my mouth. Then we had the marshmallow chocolate mousse with ginger ice cream. Again, the mixture of flavors and textures was fabulous. The only down side of the restaurant was the lighting. We could barely see wha we were eating. We had to take our cell phones out to fully experience out dishes. They try to make to romantic but it is way too dark.

    The Spice Market is an amazingly designed Asian-fusion restaurant in New York's Meat Packing District two blocks from the southern end of the Hi-Line. We made a reservation for lunch, although it obviously wasn't necessary. The wait staff was very attentive, and the food was exquisite - reminiscent of the delicious dishes we recently enjoyed in SE Asia. I loved the Thai Chili Noodles with Shrimp!

    We had a truly great experience at Spice Market, a group of six swedes set out to have an extraordinary dinner - and found just that. Among us we have a foodie guy who always cries when it´s REALLY good - and oh yes, tears were shed...he also got the opportunity to visit the kitchen and talk to a sous-chef, very much appreciated effort on your part. Hope to be back! Best Regards, Gabriella Norman, Stockholm

    Food is great. Typical meat packing spot - loud music and crowded. Great for visitors. Staff is incredibly rude. We requested that our waitress show us items that were less spicy and her reply was "it's called spice market, there's nothing not spicy". I didn't know whether to laugh or to get up and leave. Would not go back.

    I have been a fan for many years and while the celebrity chef model seems to have faded out ( nearby Mesa Grill is closing) Jean George with his unique blend of French and Thai is hopefully here to stay. Spice Market is beautiful, like stepping into another world and the food most of the time matches the decor. The fresh fish is delicious though my soup was a bit disappointing but with items rarely seen on most menus, you're in for an eating adventure..
