    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    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.

    The place feels cosy and modern - a hip place to be, but unfortunately that is all . The food was boring and it seems that they have more focus on the surface than on the main thing - the food.

    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..

    We hade a nice tabletter and waitor. Chose the tasting menu with wine paring, and it started out good but after the first dish the courses started to come out almost randomly and without presentation. Since we didn't have a menu we had to ask the waitor (another one than the one who had first taken our order and who didn't speak clear english) every time and the ingredients were blurted out. Sometimes they served the next dish before we had finished the former. Overall though good food and nice atmosphere.

    Vibrant, cool and trendy atmosphere. Fantastic interior, an experience in it self. I was here with my young daughter and we had a very fun eveing together here. I had the tasting meny with recomended wines, which was very good but I would rather recomend anyone to choose three, four (or more) dishes and share instead. It is very noisy which gives it an atmosphere of party and super-hip, but perhaps not a place for dinner and deep, meaningful conversation! I rate it a (strong) four stars out of five.

    This place has a cool vibe, and very trendy decor. Loved it! Nice music, not too intrusive but added to the ambiance. Greeted by 2 hosts and we were early for our reservation. They were very accommodating and fit us in. We had a drink in the bar area before we grabbed our table. It was early on a Sunday around 5:45 and the restaurant was half full. Once seated, our server walked us through the menu but she was not really engaged or friendly at all. Totally disinterested. A good server can make or break your dining experience no matter how good/bad the food is. o we were not impressed but the food however was AMAZING. Such a great menu and so much we wanted to eat. Next time back in NYC we will come back and hope for a better server

    The waiter almost literally warned my date and I against ordering as many items as we did. "What's the harm?" I said. "Worst case scenario: we don't finish the dishes." Wrong: it was not possible to leave one morsel of any of the selections on the plate. I left stuffed. Stuffed and very happy.

    The food what excellent and I will come again to that place bercause of it (after all this is a restaurant). The place is also deliciously decorated and lighted. The problem is with the staff, and specially the managers of each room, who are very nervous and autoritary. They all seem impatient to get rid of you. If your are two, you will never have your plates at the same moment. Even on a Friday, around midnight, they become frantic, refuse your commands, they clean the café machine before you have finished your dessert. Last time I had come, a French waitress confidentially apologised that she had so much pressure from the management that she had to be tough with the clients. Definitely not romantic.
