Food was great. Unique menu. Loved the apps in particular. Service was dreadful. One entree showed up before one of the apps but all food hit the table within about 5 minutes of each other making it impossible to enjoy the meal in courses. Waiter didn’t seem that busy but ghosted us for most of the meal. I wanted a second glass of wine but he never stopped by to ask after I finished the first. Also had to ask the hostess to track him down for the check. Food was so good that I’ll be back at least once and hope that our service experience isn’t repeated.
This is our second time at this fantastic place... Justin our server was on top of his game, knowledgeable and friendly. Our food and drinks delicious! We’ll be back again and again...
The cauliflower dish is a must have and is simply outstanding.
Chicken kabab was good, but nothing extraordinary.
The cocktails did not blow us away either.
In the hummus sampler, we really liked the Carrot hummus. The other two were too tart.
Somehow, apart from the cauliflower, we felt it did meet our expectations. Perhaps we expected too much based on Jennifer.
We ate here last weekend to take advantage of the relative warmth before fall/winter weather. They have lots of outdoor seating (with heat lamps) since they are also making use of the sidewalk in front of the Warwick Hotel. Not as nice or comfortable as their normal space indoors, but they are making do! The food and service were excellent as usual. We had several vegetable plates and the baked cheese with flatbread. Yum!
Good service from Tapia. We tried the baked cheese, trio of dips, chili chicken kebab and the lamb merguez kebab. Everything was good but not especially memorable. We were seated in the back room which was completely empty so there was no life in the place. Server was attentive and he suggested we try the frozen drinks to go which were AMAZING.
Great service and great food! It was chilly outside so the food got cold really quick - that was the only downside. Other than that, loved the experience!
Everything was delicious especially dessert. Service was excellent. Fun drinks. Will definitely be back.
Great meal and server! Fries were probably the highlight
LOVED this place!!! Very interesting and different menu options, but everything was incredible. Felt very COVID safe and comfortable.
Wonderful, creative, perfectly prepared food. The wait staff picked up on our desire to have a relaxed dinner.
Everything was delicious. The Lamb was a bit more fatty then I'm use to and half was rather unedible, but luckily my company enjoyed it! All other dishes were perfect as always. Thank you!
Best food in philly
The restaurant was practically empty. We sat 20 minutes and no one came to the table. Service throughout dinner was not professional. Food mediocre and expensive.
Get the fish. Get the cake. Get the wine pairing.
We went for Restaurant Week. They distanced their tables well. The waiters were attentive even though you could tell they were busy. The RW menu had an array of dishes and even included a wine tasting option. The food was fresh and delicious. It definitely was a fun date-night choice.
I have been a fan of Chef Jen Carroll since her first stint on Top Chef. My niece and I ordered from the restaurant week menu and our meal did not disappoint. From first course to desert everything was delicious. The whole fish was fresh, white and flaky, the chicken kebab was seasoned perfectly. We especially enjoyed the chef’s first course spread crudités , spreads one made from beets the other garlic along with Mediterranean spiced pita chips which were really good. We’ll be back, hopefully indoors next time.
The service was nice as was our waitress however the food did not taste good whatsoever. It came out cold and I actually found a sharp object in one of the dishes. Overall, we were not a fan of this place.
We ate on the sidewalk so I think it’s a little unfair to rate ambiance and noise. The servers were all appropriately masked and the tables were sufficiently distanced. The food and service was amazing!
Food was amazing and staff were all super friendly and attentive. Will definitely go back!
I love Spice Finch, so it was so exciting to go for Restaurant Week!! I loved trying new dishes and also getting some of my favorites. The outdoor seating was great and the service was fast. Highly recommend
Amazing. Perfect. Couldn’t be better
Burnt creme dessert was perfect.
We loved the imaginative use of spices for fish and vegetables and the pana cotta dessert was so yummy. Excellent and attentive service!
I was surprised to find this little jewel on the neighborhood. The food is amazing, reasonably priced, service on the dot . I can’t wait to safely have dinner inside
Great food and ambience outdoor during covid-19 pandemic.
Food and service will not disappoint. Try the lamb sausage kebab and peri shrimp. Outdoor dining requires reservation.
The chili chicken dish was tasty, wish it was a bit more. Pancakes are very good syrup not needed.There are a lot of citrus flavors in most of the menu items which was a tad disappointing. The brunch menu is extremely small, website is not updated with menu.
Great food, great ambiance, great service
Fantastic dinner just sharing small plates. Food was incredible!
Fattoush (sp?) salad was unique and delicious. I loved my Peri Peri shrimp. Nice cocktails, lovely service. This is a very good restaurant.
Maybe they had an off night but I can’t say anything good about the service and the food was awful
What can you say about ambiance when you're sitting on 17th Street about ten feet away from the traffic? But it was a very enjoyable anniversary dinner. Matthew, our server, was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. All the dishes were superb. All were moderately spicy, so there was no respite from the spice other than water or wine (that might be a good thing to consider, Jenn). We look forward to returning when indoor seating resumes.
Delicious food. Very flavorful, creative, and a beautiful presentation. Would go back in a heartbeat. This place is very underrated. :)
This is about the 3rd time I have had a meal (dinner this time) excellent food, great flavors that pop and friendly service. Good value too.
Delicious, great service. One of my favorites! I always have a great quality meal.
Limited,but interesting lunch menu.
I am fairly versed in the Philadelphia restaurant scene and this was my first time at Spice Finch. This may now be my new favorite restaurant. everything was exceptional, fairly priced and the service was great. We ordered the lamb ribs,which was unlike any lamb i have ever had perhaps the best. We had a wide variety of apps from broccoli tabbouleh to baked cheese and everything was fantastic. For dessert we had the cardamon ice cream sundae and tahini cake. I have had many variations of tahini cake, i even make my own and this was unreal. The texture was light and flavorful, while the icing which is traditionally on the thicker side was light, airy and perfect. I highly recommend Spice Finch and will be returning.
We really appreciate you taking the time to write such a thoughtful review, Danielle! It's great to hear that you enjoyed some of our menu highlights like the Baked Cheese, Lamb Ribs, and Chocolate Tahini Cake (especially since you make your own)! We really look forward to having you dine with us again soon!
Spice Finch consistently provides excellent quality food and service and I am always thrilled to dine there!
Thank you so much for your review! We are thrilled to hear that you feel well taken care of with each time you visit - we look forward to seeing you soon!
Two for dinner before the orchestra; we opted for vegetarian, and all the small plates were outstanding. Four small plates, a beer and a glass of wine came to $85, a bit pricey but it was delicious. Atmosphere is very pleasant. Service was attentive.
Thank you for your review! We are very glad you enjoyed our vegetarian offerings!
