I have never had such poor rude service anywhere! Table for 4, waited 45 minutes (we were second on the list, others were seated ahead of us-and they didn't have reservations). Finally seated, took 15 minutes to get water, and a waiter, only because I asked. Waited on another table prior to us, that was seated 10 minutes after ours! It was soooo loud in there I could barely hear my table mates. The music was cranked ridiculously loud. The "maitre d" was a completely rude man, who acted as if I was putting him out asking for a waiter. The hostesses were AWFUL. I will say when I finally got my waiter, he was polite and we got our food within a reasonable amount of time. I had the Hong Kong fish, good, but beware-very hot. We also had calamari salad, pork bellies and broccoli, and pot stickers/spring rolls. The food was ok, and actually the prices weren't too bad. I would not go back-unless it's to complain to them.

It's my go-to place for a good meal. My friend and I love Spice very much, and we've been going there for years. The food is amazing, and there is a comfortable atmosphere.

Poor service. We had an 8:15 reservation, arrived at 8:05, and waited until 9:00 before finally walking out. The entire time we were told it would just be a "few minutes", and finally were so frustrated, we had to leave. Terrible experience.

I work in Chelsea, and the Spice(s) on 8th Ave of fantastic for delivery. If I am unable to leave my desk to grab a sandwich or did not bring my own lunch, Spice is my go-to, default place to order from off their lunch menu. The food is good; it comes warm; they're relatively fast; and the value is solid. In terms of dining in there....It's a small, loud-ish, cramped place. There new second location on 8th Avenue--amazingly close by--is better all around as a venue for eating in.

We had been to Spice once before and they had made us wait 30 minutes for a table, while sitting other people in the restaurant. We chose to give it another shot because we wanted to get out of the heat. Unfortunately, this was easily the most unappetizing meal I have ever had in New York. We ordered the summer rolls, which were basically just lettuce in rice paper with a very sugary sauce. This was the best dish we actually got. Then my boyfriend ordered the duck wraps. This was a gigantic portion of shredded duck and veggies with lettuce. One bite and I needed half a cup of water to recover from the overuse of salt. For our mains, I stuck with an appetizer and ordered the steamed chicken and shrimp dumplings. Well these may have been steamed at one point, but that was before they were fried. The entire meal was a yellow-ish color, including the inside of the dumplings which is not the natural color of shrimp. Finally, my boyfriend ordered the grilled salmon with veggies and brown rice. The salmon was very fishy and clearly a few days old. Not to mention the incredibly salty sauce that was over his entire meal. The brown rice was also over cooked and not tasty at all. I will never, ever go back here

I eat from here all the time, because the food is great. But while you are there, your food can take up to almost 45 minutes to be served. I ordered from this restaurant 1 hour ago, and the food isn't here. And I live less than 5 blocks away! Great food, poor service.
