I had heard about Spice a lot and
finally went to try it. The food was alright, nothing special almost bland. The seating was too crowded and there isn't anywhere for people to wait for a tBle so everyone is kind of on top of each other."

I've been going to Spice for
almost 12 years at their multiple locations. To date, it's still the best Thai food I've ever had."

In my family we all like Spice,
food is really great and service efficient. If it was my restaurant, with such good food, I would maybe make the decor more enticing. Its a bit shabby, chair not that comfortable. But for us and friends we brought with us, every time, all dishes we have ordered so far are delicious!! Our favorite Pad Thais!"

This is truly is a neighborhood
gem -- good food, spiced or mild as you like it, with an emphasis on Thai cuisine. It's surprisingly inexpensive for this high-quality cooking. The flavors are delicious, with excellent noodle dishes in particular."

As a neighborhood Thai restaurant,
Spice is a nice choice. I judge Thai restaurants the first time around by ordering Pad Thai. Theirs was a little too sweet for my taste but my friends' dishes were all met with lots of praise. The salmon dish, being the favorite. I would go back and this time try something different, to give it a better assessment."

Food was very salty. Service was
slow and we had to ask for several things twice. Wrong food came out (ordered shrimp black noodles, but got chicken). Not coming back"

So I showed up for my reservation
and my table was not ready. I tried to explain I had a reservation they did not seem to care and told me to come back later - different day they where full. Did not even try and be acomdating"

I went for lunch with 3 friends
last week. The food was truly terrible and the staff beyond unfriendly. When they made a mistake with one order, they took it away huffing. Any request "(water please?", or "is my food coming?") would only be met with a stern glare. It doesn't help that the terrace is on Amsterdam and traffic noise makes lunch even more unpleasant. I have no idea why this joint is so popular."

I'm a huge fan of this restaurant,
have visited two of their other locations. However, at the Upper West Side location, the service was terrible. When my party of three got there, the restaurant was pretty empty...we sat for 20 minutes before I had to get up and ask for help. The server never came to our table to see how things were and twice I had to get up and order our drinks. I have never ever written a review before, but my experience at this location warranted one..."

I was quite disappointed that
there was no one at the restaurant that could tell me if any items on the menu were gluten free. I understand their caution and can much appreciate it. But even after I urged that it would be ok for my dietary restrictions if it were cooked with the same utensils but most importantly needed to not contain anything - the only food that was offered was steamed chicken or beef. Not even vegetables. If gluten is not you concern, then I hear the food is good and priced well for what you get. My friends tried the glass noodles and while unimpressive thought they were good for the cheap price. While the other one noted that that Hawaiian Pineapple chicken was quite good."

I met a friend here for dinner and
we were rushed through the entire meal. We had barely sat down when a waiter asked to take our order and he proceeded to stand next to our table and wait for us to read the menu rather than coming back in a few minutes. Then, after the food came another waiter came by several times to ask if we were done yet while we were clearly still eating. I could understand if the restaurant had been full and people were waiting to be seated but the place was practically empty and it was nowhere near closing time."

Overall, I like Spice. The
ambience was great at this Upper West Side location. The food is more or less the same as other Spice locations, but the service was much better than other locations around NYC. Good dining at a great price."

The restaurant wasn't too busy as
we ate about 6:30p, the children in the restaurant made it loud but then it quieted down. Overall there was great service. The spare ribs were yummy and a great app. The pad thai was good for 2 people."

Not anything special. The staff
was nice, but the food was eh."

My wife and I had lunch at Spice
today. It was our first in this restaurant. We found the food very good and the price was extremely reasonable. The location is very good as well. Service was quite friendly, a little slow. We will go back."

The food was uniformly good. We
got out of the theater later than expected and called to say we would be late, and they extended the closing of kitchen and bar to accommodate us, which was very nice. We were well served."

I'm not a thai food connoisseur by
any means, but I've never had a bad experience at Spice. Love it for the price and the amount of food you get. Pretty small but there's some outdoor seating if it's a nice day. Great place to have some lunch."
