"We went on a Tuesday so it was quiet and nice. Nobody was dressed poorly or being boorish which is unfortunately unusual on the west coast. The wines and sommelier were very good. The food was architectural, tasty and the temperature was perfect. The service was very good. It cost $500 ($100 bar tab) for two people by the time you get done with everything. The only suggestion I can think of is my wife was wearing black and they did not offer her a black napkin to replace the white one and she ended up getting some fine lint on her outfit as happens with white napkins on black attire. Not that this is important and the slobs that dine on the west coast would have never heard of such a thing in the first place but for $500 they probably should have offered her a black napkin."

"We had a fabulous dinner at Spruce, where we celebrated our anniversary. The food is fabulous and the sauces are excellent. Our waiter was so great and asked the kitchen if we could taste the snapper & scallops and the kitchen did. We had wonderful desserts (three of them), as well. My husband & I loved our meal at Spruce and will definitely be back soon."

"My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening out with good food, creative menu, beautiful plating and best of all, wonderful service from selecting wine to a surprise birthday dessert complete with "Happy Birthday" beautifully piped in chocolate, a candle, and a card from the staff. My family enjoyed the comfort they felt from such a friendly and professional staff, it also made my birthday and gathering feel very special. Thank you.
p.s. I decided to try dinner at Spruce after coming here for brunch with a friend. The Beignets are not to be missed!"

"The location is good, the food is great and the staff is exceptional.
It may be a bit pricey but the overall experience makes it worth it.
Can't wait to make a return visit.

"We were very pleasantly surprised that Spruce "performed" in the latest Dine-around-town at lunch. I had the prix fix of beet salad, cassoulet, and choc. mousse cake w/ banana ice cream. The cassoulet and dessert were superb. My wife had a perfectly seared spicy tuna and the little gem salad. Both were excellent although the salad was unevenly dressed. The wine list is quite something to behold, but not order from. One rarely sees such an extensive and wonderful wine list; however, prices at four times retail are really outrageous. I had a glass of a respectable Crozes-Hermitage that didn't break the bank."

"My Moroccan tuna salad was uninspired, tepid flavors, just ordinary. The warmed olives appetizer - this sounds odd, I know - was too much - too many and too different kinds of olives. My guest did enjoy the Boudin blanc. The service was friendly and helpful from the hostess to the servers. But overall, the lunch was not special although the prices suggested it should be."

"It's not often that a restaurant does everything well, and Spruce has done it. They take favorites and give them a fresh approach. The beet salad had cocoa nibs, which was a very good addition. I hate butternut squash, but I tasted the soup and it was flavorful, delicious and a generous portion.
I had the cassoulet and was at first taken aback by the black-eyed peas used instead of the traditional French white beans, but it was delicious with a lot of depth. The Steak Tartar., a great find on the bar menu, but can also be ordered dining in the restaurant.
The desserts were amazing: presentation and taste-wise. Chocolate mousse cake with banana ice cream and passion fruit mousse. Beignets- fresh, light, plentiful, and with a choice of a chocolate dipping sauce and creme anglaise.
Decor is understated and elegant. Great location."
