The relaxing atmosphere and friendly kind service made the whole evening very enjoyable.
We particularly enjoyed the bread basket. It was filled with cheese dotted biscuits and cornbread with a touch of dill. The main course of a grilled pork chop was well prepared. I was not disappointed.
I chose tres leches as my dessert. It was just the right size and with a myriad of flavors that were both tantalizing and refreshing.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSibling ReunionWe returned to a favorite spot with guests from out of town.. They loved the food and helpful service.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for dinner!Went out for a nice dinner after the semester ended with my girl friends and the food was great. The server was friendly and the overall atmosphere was nice, with a moderate noise level to not feel too overwhelming or too casual. I would definitely recommend the place.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodGreat quality of the food and the bread is excellent, the dessert is incredible yummy!,,,5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favoritesOne of many trips to Spoon, this was with a friend, but I've been there with small groups (6-8) and special loves, almost always excellent. I had a great smoked scallop appetizer; salmon with crab egg roll, bok choi, braised mushrooms: and a wonderful dessert they call Tres Leches, that has nothing to do with the usual over-sweet cake. This one is a glorious mix of tastes and textures including coconut, mango, and mint-basil and more. Everyone is friendly. Wines are great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstanding,The service was outstanding, friendly, and it was the perfect dining experience to celebrate graduation of grad school with my family!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky find on TripAdvisorExcellent knowledgeable prompt server. Lovely food presentation and food combinations. Very fresh. All 4 at our table chose fish or seafood. Efficient valet parking made the corner location doable.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all enjoyed our food atWe all enjoyed our food at the Spoon, but there were a few problems. 1) The wine list costed too much. I am not going to spend 12 dollars on a glass of wine, when some very good wines cost 15-20 dollars a bottle at a store. I could simply not enjoy wasting money like that. 2) The portions were a little too small for the price. This was a fine dinning establishment, so it is expected that the portions will be small, but if they are small enough that they were more like starts, that is too small. One dish was not like this, the Char, which was perfectly large enough for an entree. 3) Two of my party ordered the rabbit pasta, which was served in the oddest plate we had ever scene. The shape of this plate made a small dish look even smaller.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFive Courses, Five StarsIn recent years, I've come to appreciate tasting menus more and more. I like the variety with the smaller portion size of each course, and at restaurants like Spoon, an innovative chef like Spoon's Brian Pekarcik, makes each dish a combination of textures, colors and tastes that are like chamber music for the eye and palate. And when the tasting menu is coupled with a wine pairing that is equally innovative (including a beer to go with the spicy Korean pork) and of high quality, the results are squared. Spoon's wine steward, John Wabeck, even took the time to explain each pairing. Our server, Ralph, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to a return.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy New Favorite RestaurantEverything was thoughtfully prepared and delicious. The service was excellent, with just the right touch of helpfulness and thoughtfulness. I want to go back.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing. The bleu cheeseAmazing. The bleu cheese app was so airy it was the consistency of mousse. My halibut was fabulous. The wait staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Great upscale atmosphere with cool ecletic neighborhood grounding elements. comfortble nd upscale without being pretentious5 stars.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to trial SpoonWe decided to trial Spoon again as the menus is so unique and were delighted to find a rich but lighter fare. Seems lately we walk away from a fantastic meal feeling too full given the richness of the preparation. Not so this time. A unique balance of favors without the uncomfortable feeling of over eating.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Spoon for our 10 yearWent to Spoon for our 10 year anniversary. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. We chose the tasting menu paired with wines. All of the food was amazing and service was excellent! They even surprised us with a special anniversary dessert course! The only complaint I have was that we were seated right beside the front door and hostess station. Not exactly the quiet romantic setting that I had hoped for. Overall was a great evening and would definitely recommend Spoon to others.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMParent's 50th Wedding AnniversaryIn honor of our parent's 50th wedding anniversary, my sister and I decided to make a reservation at SPOON. The braised short rib was tender and flavorful, the salads were divine and presented artistically. I recommend the Splice the Mainbrace cocktail to set a festive mood for any occasion. As a bonus, our server Mila was quite attentive and arranged for a special anniversary dessert with vanilla-basil ice cream for our parents. It was a splendid evening for this momentous occasion and worth every penny.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSPOON ful. of all around Goodness!It was our first anniversary. Melanie, our server, was exceptional. She was quite patient with my husband's questions. The maitre d was highly accommodating: we were late for our reservation due to construction. ( I did call :-))
I am a vegetarian but was in the mood for fresh pasta. Melainie assured me that the lamb dish could be made vegetarian. The layers of flavors from the sunny side up egg with the mushroom sauce and tapenade was "lick your knife" GOOD ( we didnt do it of course) AT SPOON THE SORBET WAS SIMPLY DELIGHTFUL AND REFRESHING! Exceptional service, great atmosphere and geniusly crafted menu!!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMwill keep coming back forwill keep coming back for more!! Delicious from the drinks at the bar to the dessert. Veal two ways was outstanding.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCozy placeCozy, nice menu, good wine. The service was very good and the food also quite good. I would add one more vegetarian option (only one listed). Nice that they have valet parking: otherwise not sure where you'd put the car.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are never disappointedWe are never disappointed when we eat at Spoon.
