This place, what can I say. We've been wanting to try it out for ages, but have never found the time (we're both busy millennials). Even if you can't get a reservation I would say to just walk in and see if you can get a table. We went for Valentine's day and it wasn't that crowded. I recommend the Lionfish Buns - their buns are second only to my girlfriend's (gnaw gnaw gnaw). Normans's Kay: We'll see ya again soon!
My husband and I went here for a date night and absolutely loved it. Delicious food, amazing spices, authentic but prepared with a unique flair. Great service and drinks -- a wonderful experience. He had the jerk chicken tacos, I had the jerk salmon and we shared the conch fritters.
Food was good!
LION FISH is delicious!!!!!
This is an invasive, destructive reef fish w few predators.....so they are moving into a neighborhood near you! They have a very painful, dangerous sting, so we must eat them all up! This is the only restaurant I know of [through the NYTimes] that serves them in NYC. It is an enchanting place.... I would go there in a heartbeat even without the Lion fish. I recommend it with enthusiasm & look forward to my next visit .
Great food, great service as usual. I really appreciate this place.
This place is okay. The jerk pork steam buns were good but for them to be so small they were not worth $12. The escovitch sea bass was delicious as well but also not worth $21 if I getting a fillet and not the whole fish. I would eat there again for happy hour if the prices are cheaper or the portion size was slightly larger. I would not travel back to the city from Queens just for the food.
The food was ok, but I was expecting more. I hoping it was because it was a cold Sunday night and basically empty. The jerk chicken appetizer was a lil burnt and the gaucamole was not fresh. The conch fritters were really good and so were the lion fish tacos. I would try again on a busier night. I went when it just spur tree a few years back and had a better experience overall.
Fun times at this rustic venue. The only thing is even with reservations they only had a table by the door and it was FREEZING that night. So every time someone walked in we had to get up and close the door behind them so we wouldn't feel the chill. Recommending them getting a small heater for that area. If it wasn't for the food we would have prob left.
I arrived at the scheduled OPEN TABLE time and the 'KITCHEN WAS CLOSED", so I left.
Not a lot of good Jamaican food in this city but this is the best. Excellent curry goat and rice & peas. Good music in the upstairs lounge
Great tasting food. Strong drinks. Service has improved since first visit. This time, food service was prompt.
Management change and food menu much smaller. Food not as good. Disappointing.
The staff was excellent. Food and drinks were good. Mac and cheese would be better if it were made to order. Chocolate cake could have been warmer. The fried fish with rice and peas was excellent. Service is extremely slow, which is ok if you're not starving to death and are in good company.
Always good one of the best places
Have been coming to Spur Tree from Maryland for the past 4 years!! .. ALWAYS a great time!!! I have referred several friends and family.
Food, atmosphere and service are excellent!! Sean is an excellent host and caters to the comfort of his patrons.
Love this place. Made a reservation same day for 8 without having to leave credit card. Drinks are awesome and the Carribean food is excellent.
Some dishes are really spicy so make sure to double check with the waitress before ordering if you're more into mild hotness. That said, I really like the food there, simple and good, and I would recommend it for everyday dining, or casual dining with friends. Overall the ambiance is good, relaxed and not too noisy. Waitresses are usually very sweet but be depending on nights or how crowded the place is, be prepared to wait for ages for your order to be ready. I suspect the kitchen to be understaffed and they really need to make some improvements there, cause no matter how good the food is, this can be a real deal breaker.
We had curry goat & lamb chops • amazing and so yummy!! Must have and will be back to devour the rest of the menu.
My BFF and I loved it !!!! The food and drinks was yummie !!! I love the scene
Second time at this restaurant and I still love dining here. Everyone and everything was perfect. My girlfriends loved it. Lovely birthday celebration. Planing a date night three with my husband
