Food was OK but the service was a complete disaster. Our waiter forgot our wine, one appetizer, the bread. He was never around our table. When we asked him about the appetizer he didn’t even listen and brought the entrees. He didn’t even apologize. Never coming back.

One of my favorite restaurants in Naples. Service is great! Zoran is one of the best waiters I've ever encountered. Chef Asif cooks everything to perfection and takes pride in all his dishes. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was our second time and so glad we came back. The first time was during season and the service was terrible with mediocre food. Family and friends really wanted Indian food so we gave it another chance and so glad we did. Bar was great with a great bartender named Earl, who ended up serving us at a booth near the bar. Food was fantastic. Hope they can maintain this level of Service and food as we look forward to going back!!

This restaurant is amazing! We were there to celebrate a birthday with 6 people. The staff was very attentive, helped us with a selection of appetizers for the table, and took great care of us. The food was delicious. Something for everyone. The presentation was very nice and the mood of the restaurant is fun, trendy and luxurious. I would definitely go back and highly recommend the restaurant to others.

The decor and ambiance are welcoming. We were greeted by the manager and seated immediately. Our server was excellent and was able to give advise on the dishes we had questions on. The entertainment was a special touch. Our only disappointment was the preparation of my husbands lamb chops. He requested medium rare and they were over done. We returned the dish and the new one was overdone as well. Everything else was excellent so we will definitely return to try some new dishes.

21 Spices is our favorite restaurant in Naples. We are never disappointed. The lamb is the best I have ever had and the salmon is delicious too. Scallop lovers should not pass over the scallop appetizer. Nice ambiance too.

Our meal at 21 spices was Stellar in every way. The entrees were perfectly prepared and beautifully spiced. We couldn't get over how large the bread was and how buttery the rice was. The desserts were yummy too it couldn't have been a better experience. Definitely worth the drive from the eastern coast of Florida

Everything I have ever had here is fantastic. I have been to the restaurant in the last two of it's previous incarnations and the decor is completely different. They did a fantastic job of giving the place a look and feel that matches the menu. I am vegetarian and I go out to dinner several times a year for special occasions with my partner and my dad. They are both TOTAL carnivores. Whenever it is my turn to choose where we eat (like my birthday) I always choose 21 Spices. My guys LOVE several of the lamb dishes but I think their favorite is the lamb shank. I am partial to Nizam's Kofte. The service is fabulous. Definitely one of Naples' hidden gems that perhaps became a little less hidden after Chef Asif "Beat Bobby Flay"!! Sometimes one of my dudes also picks 21 Spices when we go out. My birthday just passed so I can't wait for our next visit!!

21 Spices Never disappoints. Their 21 spices lamb chops (more like rack of lamb) is so delicious that it's hard to order anything else on the menu. But right now the restaurant is offering a $35 per person special, which includes a choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert. If you add a side dish of garlic Nan, you will be in 7th heaven.

Just finished a delicious meal. Atmosphere was elegant, the service was pleasant, attentive and timely. Our waiter Zoran was very helpful in explaining the menu and able to point me in the direction I was wanting to go, the Lamb Vindaloo was delicious. My wife ordered her Indian restaurant go to, Chicken Tikka Masala, she said it was one of the best she’s had. I started with their version of a lobster bisque which was full of flavor and just the right spice. Portions were generous, boxed up our lunch for tomorrow.
If you’re looking for flavorful Indian cuisine, look no further.
We’ll definitely be back, most likely sooner than later!

What a pleasant experience! Tastefully decorated, food delicious, friendly and accommodating staff! Didn't know if I would be able to find something to eat - know very little about food from India. I had a lamb dish, my daughter had a chicken dish and son-in-law had the special of the evening, which happened to be seafood. All were outstanding!! Daughter's was a bit hotter than expected - next time she will order mild.

You are definitely on the A list!!

21 Spices is one of our favorites. We visit whenever we are in Naples. With so many dishes on the menu we try to get something different every time we go and have never been disappointed. The servers are the best!
