    We enjoyed a nice night out. Our food was very flavorful. My filet cut like butter and was cooked perfectly! I had the bananas foster bread pudding for dessert--YUM. It came with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream oozing over the wonderful warm pudding. Also, our server, Kirsten (sp) was great!

    Our server was very knowledgable of the menu, and friendly. Food was prepared perfectly, and was very flavorful. The view of the Lake Eola Fountain at night was colorful, 9:30pm light show. Menu has varity, most anyone can find something on the menu to eat. I would highly recommend them, and the peppercorn filet.

    We went there and the food was great, however the waitress told us the specials and when we got the bill the pricing for the special ended up being the most expensive the meal on the menu. My wife got Mahi Mahi that was $25 and topped with shrimp scampi that was $16. A little over priced for an addition to a meal when most meals on the menu start at 18 and everything else around 20.

    II was pleased with the service and atmosphere, unfortunately, the food on the other hand was bland. I had salmon and even the sauce had no flavor. My partner had the steak and it was not seasoned either. On the other hand, the portions were a nice size.

    We dined in the patio in the middle of summer at 11am-1pm and the temperature was perfect. They kept fans on us and we sat under trees and a umbrella. The ladies wore dresses and the men shorts and polos and the temperature was very bearable. Caveat: we are floridians and used to humidity and sweating a bit Food and drink was a great price point and we we're out of there under $30 for both of us.

    We were a party of 11 celebrating two birthdays with 8 adults and 3 kids ages 5, 8 and 9. Spice has a terrific kids' menu for brunch with prices at $5 and $6. The regular brunch entrees were priced from $8 on up with a lot of choices in the $8-11 range. One of the adults had the Bananas Foster French Toast and loved it. We were all happy with the setting and the servers rearranged the umbrellas to keep the sun off of us. The servers were very attentive.

    I wondered why it wasnt very crowded on a Friday night at 830p, now I think I know. In my opinion the food is not up to par. We started our meal with bruchetta, which tasted good, but was cold. The cheese on top was not melted, so it seems that it was undercooked, not simply let to cool off before serving. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli. The presentation was very bland. Yellow pasta, white sauce, white cheese sprinkled on top (again not melted). It tasted like sauce from a jar to me. My husbands steak was good.

    Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. Found the menu online, and couldn't wait to try. They had delicious, well prepared food, and our server was great. I got up to ask the hostess to have a birthday dessert brought to my table, and I picked the chocolate chip cookies. When I got my bill, not only did they charge me $7 for the birthday dessert, but also $3 for ice cream, which I didn't even ask for. I also noticed my $8 Pinot Grigio rang up as $10. Didn't want to make a fuss over a few dollars, but what kind of restaurant doesn't comp a birthday dessert? Never happened to me before- very disappointed. All in all, food was great but not sure if I'll be back.

    We ate at this Spice on a Saturday night, and the entire evening was great! We requested and were given a table with a view of the lake. Great La Poire martini, large glass. The lobster bisque and French onion soups were not the best we’ve ever had, but were good. We shared a 10 oz. filet and were not charged for splitting the entree. It was very tender and cooked medium rare, as we had requested. The potatoes were a little too spicy for my taste, but the zucchini was good. Our outstanding server Sasuke made fresh decaf coffee for us, and we split an excellent dessert- Bananas Foster bread pudding. The portion was huge! They have very nice outdoor seating with a great view of Lake Eola.

    Waitress forgot about us and a waiter had to step in and assist. He eventually forgot about us and after calling him out in a polite way about on not attending to us he stepped up his game. This restaurant was not worth the money charged for dinner. We expected decent service for this "Modern" restaurant.

    Location Location Location is about all Spice has going for it. Looking over Lake Eola at night and having a few drinks I'm sure is fantastic. My wife and I chose to sit inside because of the strong chance of rain the night we dined. Our server was exceptionally nice but spoke a little too soft once the music was turned up. Our spinach artichoke dip with the warm flatbread was good but the flatbread outshine the dip so I'm not sure that's a good thing. I ordered the rib eye steak which was cooked perfectly but at $39 it was a bit pricey for a 12 oz. (Manny's Chophouse has the best steak prices). My wife got the Parmesan Chicken which she liked. All sai and done we dropped $110 tip included. Overall food was just ok but not for that price.

    I was really excited to go to this restaurant. When we arrived, they didn't have our reservation in the system (until I showed them my confirmation) or seating outside for 5 (until we told them we were going to a different restaurant) We felt they segregated us, thinking we might not be "big spenders?" The food came out, and some was excellent some was just good. Our service was not good from hostess to waiter... BUT I would come back and sit outside as it is just gorgeous.

    Dined in between brunch and dinner hours so it was not very crowded, but crowded enough that the outdoor seating facing the lake was all taken. cool cocktail and martini list- some original drinks with a good wine selection as well. This is the first time, I believe, I have seen baked brie on a restaurant menu and it was very good- nice flaky pastry crust around creamy, melty brie with a raspberry reduction and crackers. I ordered the tuna sashimi salad which was very tasty- I am glad i got the wasabi vinaigrette on the side. We skipped on dessert, but I'd go back and give it a try. I also hear great things about their brunch, so I'd be interested in trying that out.

    I booked a reservation here for Mother's Day hoping to enjoy the beautiful day & view of Lake Eola. When we arrived, the pretentious server informed me outside seating was not guaranteed and we would have to wait 45 minutes if we wanted to sit outside. So instead we squished 8 people in a u-shaped corner booth. Our waiter was not only slow, he brought us coffee without either cream or sweetner. Our drink glasses went empty multiple times and we had to ask him for more. The food was pretty good despite that--but honestly, how hard is it to make a good brunch?? So continues the revolving door for this prime space in DT Orlando...

    Dined on 4/27/2014
    Both of us had different soups to start. The soups were outstanding. Amazing. So, I would've expected that to be a reflection of the entrée that was yet to come. However, each of our entrées was less than impressive. The 50-50 burger was okay, but the bun was massive and the toppings which included onion rings and cheese overpowered the burger. I wound up taking the top bun off and eating it as an open faced sandwich. The pesto garlic fries that came with it were horrible. Own paper, they sounded fantastic. But when they arrived, they were flavorless, soggy from the all in the pesto, and even a bit still tasting as if they were old fries warmed up. The tomato chutney meant for dipping the fries has very little flavor and was hard to dip.

    Very nice. Outdoor seating with great view of the Lake. Evening one can enjoy the view and lightshow. Be warned however, on occasion there are seated large groups that often times after a few drinks can become obnoxiously loud... that was our case, as we attempted to enjoy our wonderful sushi, and only go to do so after the noisy table left.

    Myself and a group of 10 dined at Spice on Saturday evening. The outdoor seating was perfect! We had two servers; one was great, the other was so-so. The so-so one never acted as though she was having a good night - very "ho-hum" and seemed annoyed that we were talking most of the time. Rather than speaking up to tell us the specials, she kept coming back to see if we were done talking. I finally quieted the table for her so she could share the specials. The food came and I enjoyed mine; however, several in my party did not. Almond crusted chicken was dry said one friend, Mahi was overcooked said another. Sushi & appetizers were great (highly recommend the grilled zucchini); drinks were good too. I would dine there again.

    We were looking for a place to show off downtown Orlando and Lake Eola. Spice Restaurant fit the bill to a tea. While it is a "steak" place, we all had chicken dishes and thoroughly enjoyed them. The wait staff is attentive, but not to the point of interferring with dinner or conversation. Will definitely go back!

    1st visit to Spice. The server told us steaks are "amazing"- hand cut and aged. I had the filet and my husband the new York strip. They were both really bad. My was way overcooked and they were both tough. We have had better at OutBack for a third of the price. The outdoor dining and view was amazing, so we enjoyed our evening anyway. I would order a sushi roll and glass of wine . Server was good.

    We went to Spice after we heard about the view from the patio. Made a reservation. Upon arrival we were told not enough servers so we would have to wait. The bar area is somewhat small. Took quite a while to get a cocktail. When we asked for limes for our cocktails we were informed no limes. When we were finally escorted to our table the bench seating was covered in food crumbs. The hostess saw it and didn't clean it but she gave me a rag to do it. Our server was good and she was accommodating. The food was OK. Not worth the price and with so many quality restaurants to choose from in the Orlando area. I would recommend it when you want to sit outside and be on the lake and enjoy a few cocktails and appetizers.
