Our Prix Fixe three course meals were wonderful. Indoor and outdoor dining was available. The outdoor 'parklette' was one of the best I have seen.

Amazing staff and service. Only recommendation is the Open Table update the inside outside reservation. Second restaurant experience I have had lately with a mixup in outside/inside location. Confirmation was for outside on OT but restaurant showed inside- which was my preference. Thank you, Spruce. Will be back..

We went here for our 25th anniversary. From start to finish, it was a great experience. The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the service was efficient.

The good was great. Each of us had a corn velouté which was outstanding. It’s not often that a soup will be the thing I’ll remember years later, but this one was just stunning. For the main, I had pork with a summer succotash. I hardly ever eat pork away from home since most restaurants still overcook it like it’s 1970. This pork was cooked perfectly. As part of the preparation, they had the bone next to the sliced meat. I knew I was at a fine dining restaurant but the pork was so tasty, I picked up the bone and eat every possible bit of pork from it.

We shared a plate of pasta with truffles on top that was divine. Beignets for dessert which were solid also. Their wine list was unreal. It had to be 60 pages long.

All in all, we had a lovely time.

Food and service flawless.
Beautiful menu, some things simple and elegant -sometimes a novelty these days, other offerings more elaborate but not overly fussy….just perfection,

Bland food, extremely overpriced. Nothing special about these dishes, it is solely something slightly adventurous for people who don’t really know about good food/flavour. The cocktails were well executed and the caviar service was a nice addition. Overall not worth the price. Our servers also didn’t tell us 20% tip was included on our bill and thus we accidentally tipped 40%. Very disappointing.

Just the loveliest place to meet a friend for lunch. The ambiance is elegant and quiet, the service is accommodating and attentive, and the food is absolutely delicious. Tip: order the beignets for dessert. You will not regret it.

The restaurants ambience was very nice, service was excellent, food was good…..noise level was moderate in the dining room probably attributed the the ceding design and the resulting acoustics…..a piano player would have been a wonderful addition .

Although the two hosts made us wait for 20 minutes to get our table ready even though we have reservations ( 2 parties came after us and they got seated right away) the food was excellent and that’s what we were there for. We didn’t allow those 2 to dampen our spirits. Our server Kimball was very accommodating and non pretentious. Overall we enjoyed our dinner with some fun and laughter on the side.

Seated outside, delicious food well-seasoned and carefully prepared and presented, we loved the dining experience! The heirloom melon was light and colorful and sweet and tart and savory. The pasta with chanterelles and corn was gorgeous and tasty. The best best best beignets, perhaps in or out of New Orleans was a wonderful finish to the meal.

Spruce lived up to its reputation to serve top notch seasonal contemporary California cuisine with an impressive wine list, service and atmosphere, all for a moderate prix fixe menu price. Memorable dishes included the strawberry foie Gras terrine, corn agnolotti, lobster pasta, pork chop and Black Forest cake.

Music odd for a lovely room with serene decor. I asked the music to be turned down but the music choice would be better in a sports bar.
The crude was excellent and thdd red pasta with truffles but the hamburger was ordinary.

The food was really good, but maybe not matching the price point. The scallops and pork were excellent but the duck breast was slightly more done than I preferred. There was a heavy emphasis on wine, which I don't enjoy drinking. The place was very nicely lit, slightly dim but easy to see the menu. Conversations were hushed, which gave it a very upscale ambiance, though I prefer a slightly more lively place that didn't take it self as seriously. Our waiter was all serious business, making the experience less welcoming than I had hoped.

Food was excellent, and the service was superb! The only negative remark I would have is that the waiting staff mentions at the end that a 20% service charge is included to be divided amongst the staff as a tip But then when you get the receipt you are still asked to tip. I was confused about if I needed to tip extra on top of the 20%, and how much.

Spruce was simply spectacular! We were there to celebrate a very special occasion. The food was wonderful with not a single dish less than fabulous and we all tasted everything. The outdoor patio is a beautiful place and added to the special meal. The Maitra D and the staff were excellent. Go for the food and enjoy the ambiance, service and it is all extremely well done. Kudos to the Spruce team.
