"Very impressed with several items we ordered. Very personable, friendly and courteous waitress, manager (Mike), and chef. We were pressed for time since we had tickets to a show. Service was excellent, not too rushed, yet concerned for our time constraints. We tasted many items, the warm artichoke dip was excellent, as was the sausage and pimento cheese small plates. The kale caesar with smoked salmon was another winner. The spicy mussels were among the best we had worldwide! Can't wait to dine at The Spence again, hopefully when we have more time to enjoy."

"The staff was friendly, however dEspite the fact that there were only approximately three other tables in the entire restaurant during the time of our visit, our food and beverage service was very very slow. Drinks came out after appetizers. This is somewhat ironic b/c we advised our server to try and keep us moving along as we had tickets for a show. We ended up missing the start of the show."

"The Host that seated us was very nice and professional.
Our food and the presentation was Excellent.
The server could have been more friendly. He had no personality, and barely spoke.
He never asked if we wanted an appetizer.
He did keep our water glasses full at all times though.
We would definitely eat there again, with the hopes of getting a different server.

"We ordered 3 different dishes plus desert and NONE of them were any good. No flavor, meat was dry, polenta was undercooked!!! Upon reading more about The Spence after our bad experience, I found out that both of the Top Chefs who started there are no longer In staff.
Unfortunately, whomever they hired as their replacement has really dropped the ball!!!

"Wait staff was terrible. Took my drink order and forget everyone else. After everyone did get service after our first drink the waitress took our glasses without asking if wanted more. Won't be going back."

"Food at The Spence was solid, although a lighter touch with the salt shaker would be preferable. The entree portions were on the small side but nicely presented; salads were terrific. The service was outstanding - attentive but not cloying. Definitely would go back."

"I ate there with colleagues a year ago and the food was excellent. Good enough to return.
This year was just average.

"I booked this as a last minute dinner reservation on a Saturday night. I am surprised I was able to get in on such short notice. The restaurant had many groups of people dining, but not many small tables of people. It was hard to pick what to order since so many dishes were tempting. I went with the burger, and although it was good, would probably choose another dish next visit. Portions were great. Our waiter was awesome, and all the staff was helpful and accommodating. I would visit again, especially when the weather is nice outside since it looked like they had good outdoor seating area."
