Contemporary American
Spoonbar serves a menu of clean and simple dishes honoring America’s diverse culinary influences. Their artfully-crafted, market-driven cuisine of fresh, bold flavors is built around seasonally-inspired local and sustainable ingredients. The same focus carries over to Spoonbar’s cocktails which use specially sourced organically-grown herbs, fruits and vegetables with an emphasis on locally and domestically produced spirits.



Freeform tables made from reclaimed acacia surround a long, communal table crafted from a split tree. Splashes of color—from the turquoise Eames chairs to the golden floral three dimensional wall art—brighten the open space like dappled sunshine filtering through summer leaves. On warm days and evenings the restaurant’s Cantina doors open up to sidewalk dining.

The tuna tartare was amazing and the chicory salad too.
The fried chicken was crispy and very tasty and all our portions were larger than I remember and that was a nice surprise. Staff was very friendly and helpful!

The food was a little over the top with flavor. The burger had a smoky taste from the cheese, too much sweetness from carmelized onions that overpowered. Follow that with truffle fries and secret sauce and it is a party in your mouth. Not in a good way.

I went here years ago and loved it, and was pleasantly surprised the quality has not decreased one bit. Excellent food, very kind waitstaff, and lots of local selections.

We went for dinner the night after Christmas, so the place was very quiet. It may not normally be so quiet. The décor was nice, nothing over the top. If I remember correctly the tables are metal topped. My sister had the fried chicken, which would have easily fed three people. She took 2/3's of it home for later. My brother and I had the short rib, which melted in your mouth and was easily flaked with a fork. Service was good. I had French Onion Soup to start as I had a cold and needed the heat to clear up my head. It did the job. No deserts this night as we were all pretty tired. Would come back again.

Sunday evening is a great time to dine at Spoonbar----plenty of parking and an uncrowded restaurant. The dishes we enjoyed were delicious and interestingly complex. Great service and no corkage on this particular occasion.

We were seated in a back dining area so the noise level was much more quiet than the rest of the restaurant? The duck confit ravioli was delicious as was the butternut squash risotto.

Spoonbar has gone through some chefs (some I liked better than others), but the food now is terrific. They were also able to seat us early and we never felt rushed, even though it was a Saturday night. A very nice dining experience!

Not a bad place. I'd try it again. Gave it 3 stars but really 3.5 but not 4. All 5 of us in our party enjoyed the snacks, as they are called on the menu, but the main courses were all just lacking something from making them really good. The chicken was dry, but dish had good flavor but dry chicken at a nice restaurant???? The Cioppino had tasty seafood but the broth tasted like blah marinara sauce. The Short Rib was over seasoned with some spice that the 2 people who had it got tired of the it 1/2 way thru the meal. So overall worth trying again, maybe a bad day for kitchen.

We shared the prawns for an appetizer. There were 5 and since there were 2 of us 6 would have been better. Not all that big at all. Then we shared the butter lettuce with strawberries salad. This was good, light and refreshing. The creme type dressing was really thick and tasteless. Our main dish was braised short ribs with a delicious sauce. $31 for about 3 bites each. No veggies or potatoes. So the skimpy portions were really disappointing. I guess these small plates were not meant to be shared. The Tom Thum cocktail was delicious. Service was impeccable and the setting was great. We spent around $100 and went home a bit hungry. Very few choices on the menu!

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday with another couple. The food was delicious but the service was very slow and they never acknowledged his birthday. The fire alarm went off twice but no apology or explanation. We asked and there was an issue with the vent in the kitchen. We still had a nice time but they need to work on their service!

We went to Spoon bar last night and everything went really well until we got our main course. My boyfriends mom and I both got a burger and it was not cooked at all..... we had them take it back and it came back AGAIN raw. I’m not sure how a chef can mess up a burger twice? The manager and server apologized and asked if we wanted free dessert. I’m not a dessert person and neither was anyone at our table so we declined. We didn’t have an appetite for them to make us another meal... and we just wanted to leave because we were already there for a long time. All in all - we had a good experience, but I would probably just go there for a drink and not food
