It’s always a lovely experience at the McNinch House. The presence of Wes, the long-time sommelier, was greatly missed. The service, quality of food, and ambience was just as good as the first experience I had. I look forward to returning!

Visiting on a Thursday night and weather was perfect for dining outside. We had Kayla as our server, and she was attentive, energetic, and enjoyable. We had the Burrata Appetizer, which is one of our favorites. My wife had the Salmon with the green curry and it was perfectly spicy and delicious. I opted for the vegetarian version of that dish with the Potato Pave, which is a dish I have not been able to find anywhere else in our area, so I highly recommend!

About the restaurant
Spice has a signature vibe that was curated by our experiences traveling around the world and patronizing the best other modern cities had to offer. Hotels, restaurants, and nightlife in London, St. Tropez, New York and Miami helped guide our hand when developing this concept. A night at Spice will excite all five senses maybe even a sixth. Our posh dining room, decadent menu, and captivating cocktails will make Spice a top pick.
