    Restaurant Week Jan 2007

    I found my experience to be very enjoyable. The prixe-fix menu had a nice selection and four courses. The portions were more than enough and the food was delicious. The decor was beautiful. I felt myself transported to a far away locale. I would defintiely go back and pay full price.

    A Clusterf*ck

    Last night I came here with my boyfriend to have a delicious Restaurant Week dinner. I was really looking forward to this and even took the 9 pm reservation I made a month in advance. Well here's a laundry list of things that went wrong: - Other tables got a little basket of rice chips and a salsa dip (we had to ask for ours) -Only brought one appetizer out- gave the other to the table next to us which they immediately devoured without questioning it. Had to ask to get another one, then got it. - Had to keep asking to have our water refilled - Food was delivered before the plates were cleared from the previous course, I even stacked the plates to give the bussers "the idea" - Didn't bring us the rice we ordered, but it showed up on the bill- whatever, I was not in the mood to dispute it - Brought us entrees 10 minutes apart from each other, then tried to deliver a third one because the kitchen did not communicate this to the plate runners The food was delicious, but it almost seemed like you could get it at a very good Thai restaurant. Well, at least the staff noticed that there were plenty of mistakes and mishaps and gave us one of our meals free (-$35 from the bill, actually -$31 if we count the rice sides we paid for and didn't receive) It may have been an off night. I am not a big complainer, but it could have been an amazing experience, but the confusion and bad service made for a comedy of errors. I don't think I will go back, but maybe if I give Spice Market the benefit of the doubt, it will be a better experience.

    Not worth the hype

    Great decor, tasty food, very disappointing beyond that. The menu is designed for you to order lots of dishes and enjoy a variety of tastes, but a table for two is extremely small. The oversized plates provide a beautiful presentation for the food, but you are practically balancing them in your lap. The staff is obnoxious and pushy, not merely making suggestions but practically trying to tell you what you need to order. Then when the food comes, you are wolfing down one course to get to the next because there is just no room on the table. You are not even able to enjoy the mix of flavors and variety of dishes. I was amazed at the clear mismatch of menu style, service, and layout.

    Loved it!

    I went to Spice Market last Tuesday. The atmosphere is incredible--the restaurant looks like a Thai teak house. Although we had to wait for our table, once we were seated, the service was very attentive. We ordered the fragrant mushroom egg rolls and the spiced chicken samosas (both fantastic, although small portions!), the cod with Malaysian Chili Sauce and the Spicy Shanghai Noodles, Chilled Silken Tofu, Garlic & Herbs. All plates were great--although as I said, the portions were not large. We were really full at the end of the meal however, because we ate about 4 bowls of the pappadums that the waiter brought with our menus...they were so yummy. Although the entrees were a little slow, the whole meal is an experience so it wasnt a problem waiting for our food. Overall, highly recommended!

    Terrific spot

    Four of us had dinner at Spice Market the other night and had a great meal and a great time. The decor is very attractive, both upstairs and downstairs, we were seated on time and the service was good. Indeed, the bus boys were everywhere and we never waited for new plates, water, etc. We cook a lot and eat out extensively and the food at SM was mostly terrific. Granted, the appetizers are better than the main dishes but, all were flavorful and presented well. Frankly, I'm at a loss concerning those who pan the food and the place. I'm not sure what they are looking for, a transcendental experience? Spice Market gets it right most of the time and is a great destination spot for some good current, flavorful SEAsian food. The ginger margarita is also excellent and they have an extensive and mostly fairly priced wine list. Its hard to find this combination in many NYC spots. Go and enjoy.

    Food subpar, looks nice

    So the decor is great. It has a nice feel to it, however the food is unusually bad. It's not the chef or the ingredients, it's the concept. In trying to create an exotic experience, it becomes an odd mix of flavors that don't mesh. I will never go there again. I was so disappointed.

    Cool place, but poor food and service

    I went to Spice Market recently with my husband and another couple. We had reservations and we seated promptly upon arriving which was a lovely relief from some trendy restaurants where you have to wait to be seated, even with reservations. We ordered drinks which we good. Ordered 4 various appetizers between the 4 of us. Beef sticks were the best, egg rolls and chicken was pretty good. Service was lacking though, we had to ask several times for water, and we didnt get bread/crackers which I saw every table around us did get. We each ordered an entree, I had the seafood with shrimp and scallops which was not good - it was very overcooked. That was surprising to me. Dessert was good, we shared 2 desserts. Servers forgot my tea and brought the others who ordered after we already finished our dessert. Would not come here again for food, and the service needs improvement. The decor and drinks were lovely. But spend your night somewhere else.
