Such a perfect evening to spend here enjoying the warmer weather & lovely atmosphere. Fantastic Negroni, grilled bread & love the gem salad. The snapper was perfect. Our waiter recommended the walnut pie, which in fact, was delicious. Will be back.

For our first dinner out since the pandemic began, naturally we chose our FAVORITE restaurant. Everything was as remembered: beautiful patio, divine food and excellent service. Some favorite dishes are baked avocado,mealballs, Little Gem salad and whatever the fish hiding under as assortment of fresh vegetables. So happy to be back!

Excellent food in a beautiful outdoor space. All servers, receptionist, etc were very friendly and receptive. Service was slow, however, the restaurant was very busy and the employees tried very hard ,so it wasn’t a concern.

This is one of our go-to restaurants. They have a lovely patio. The people who work there are really nice. They go out of their way to make you feel good.

Pastas are great. So is the meatball appetizer. I love the white pizzas. Drinks and wine are good too.

The food and service were excellent. However, it was deeply concerning that the gentleman who appears to be the host, manager or owner was circulating among the tables and greeting guests almost the entire evening without a mask. Even if he is fully vaccinated, he is still a health risk and sets a poor example for patrons.

The food was just stunningly good! Only note is the seating and service were not as "covid-conscious" as we would have liked. The patio tables are much closer than the recommended 6', although I recognize that it is outside. We had been vaccinated, so after we asked to be moved to a table that was as far away as possible, (which was graciously handled), we settled in and decided to stay. Glad we did because the food was SO GOOD!

Went there during Brunch and the menu was limited so I’d recommend going when they have a full menu. Overall everything was great. Food was tasty and the service was great. They also had good drinks.

It’s a decent place — excellent service, very nice outdoor area; decent price/ value; I also appreciate them taking sanitizing/ COVID situation very seriously and taking many precautions.
We had a fantastic appetizer— their wild honey is really good. The other two main dishes for brunch are good, but not mind-blowingly good. As foodies I’m looking for more from food than service.
Another disappointing thing is that they changed their menu! The menu on OpenTable is out-dated. I was so looking forward to buttermilk waffle but they don’t have it on the current menu, which left me limited choices to order from the menu.
It’s def a nice place to have a causal weekend brunch. If I live nearby, I will go back there from time to time.

Overall it was a great atmosphere. Me and my girlfriend came to Spartina for our anniversary. Outside setup is safe and we didn’t feel like we were at risk of Covid. Entrees, cocktails and dessert was perfect. My issue was with our waiter, I think it’s just happened to be a one time thing. It’s not a shot at the staff at all because hostesses were very friendly. Our waiter was this guy with grey hair, kind of tall. He was extremely unprofessional. From forgetting drinks because he decided to have a full blown conversation with three other tables and his buddies who were just passing by on sidewalk. He didn’t even introduce himself, didn’t recommend anything, rushed us and then took all of our menus. This guy just sucked so this is my only issue. I think it’s probably just one off terrible waiter.
