Spruce has been a favorite for years but this time I was really disappointed with the food, what there was of it. It tasted good, not great, and it felt very sparse. I wouldn't recommend it to new customers.

Our friend’s birthday. The young woman who’s served us was outstanding. The food was delicious as always. The ambiance -we were outside in the sun- was great! A friendly face when checking jn - which has not been the case in recent months - so bravo for fixing that.

Our go-to restaurant these days. Great service and ambience outside. We also get to-go pretty frequently.

Last night was our 6 year old daughter’s birthday. The entire staff seemed to know it was Katherine’s birthday and went out of their way to say happy birthday and they all remembered her name. There was a special dessert with 6 candles. She was thrilled, we were happy.

The food and service were both outstanding and accordingly very expensive. We celebrated a birthday there and were prepared for the cost. As much as we enjoyed the experience and well worth the expense, we would still just go back for another special occasion.

Everything was amazing. Food was very flavorful and wine was absurdly good. However, it was quite cold where we sat. I think they had the door outside open the entire time.

My partner and I experienced one of the best lunches we have ever enjoyed.
Aside from a very quiet table in your beautiful indoor setting distanced from other tables, two major factors account for our experience.

1. Our server Courtney was amazing. She is so lovely, intelligent and professional. We felt total comfort from the first moment. She helped us with the menu and wine selection. So perfect resulting in a perfect meal experience.

2. The food and wine were so unique and special. The charges were also very reasonable considering the extreme quality of our server, food and wine. We gave Courtney an additional gratuity beyond the base 20% fee - which is also very reasonable.

All in all, we will be back regularly! What a treasure!

I had a great New Year's celebration lunch with a friend in their parklet (comfortable, heated, provided shelter from occasional drizzle, but also lots of open air ventilation). I was able to request their French omelet even though they were serving their weekday lunch menu. Shared a salade lyonnaise with veal sweatbreads (good!), a duck confit (delicious) and the omelet (delicately cooked with fresh spinach, slice of brie and Mornay sauce), and side order of fries with my friend. Also a good half bottle of Mourvedre blend rose (Domaine de Terrebrune from Bandol) -- they have a wide selection of half bottles in general) and capped the meal off with another round of drinks. Service was, as usual, attentive, precise and friendly. There was a bit of a wait between finishing the half bottle and getting our orders in for another round, but we were lunching leisurely, so it wasn't an issue. We ended up spending a very relaxing 3 hours and a half there (!). Friend enjoyed her Autumn Fever cocktail with brandy, calvados, apple and maple. I enjoyed a glass of Riesling.
Back in September, I'd had an also pleasant but somewhat less successful lunch there. Glad I returned for a all-around better experience!

This was our third time dining at Spruce. The previous two times were excellent in both food and service. This time it was New Year’s Eve, so I realize it would be busier, but the service stood out as disappointing and subpar. In particular, the server was really bad. Not once was my drink refilled, and the server totally forgot that we didn’t get our desserts yet. He came out and asked our table as well as the table next to us if there was anything else we needed. I was stunned he was about to drop off the check. Surprised, I looked at him and told him we were still waiting for the dessert course. The server then told us that he thought we already got it. Shortly afterwards, the table next to us and our table both got desserts. The table next to us even commented that the waiter was really bad. For the $563.00 we paid for New Year’s dinner for two people the service was truly mediocre. Hopefully, when we come back for Valentine’s we can get a different server because he really was awful. The table we got was bad as well since every time the door opened a super cold draft would come in. The aisle had people going by our table constantly and everyone kept knocking my chair or hitting it as they walked by all night. This was not a pleasant evening.

The food was not as good as when i came in the fall. I dont know if its because of the prix fixe nye dinner. But would not come back again for the prix fixe. The service was good. Ambience is preferred without the festive nye balloons which made the restaurant look cheap. When the original wood and sleek furniture make the ambience more enjoyable.
