We ate there on 8/4/17. The food was terrific. Two of us had the cheeseburger meal; one the chicken dinner; I had the flatbread and the last had the cold zucchini soup. All were very good. No appetizers or desserts. Service was passable and seemed...More

We came to Spice at the recommendation of a gentlemen in a bar and it was the best tip we could have asked for. As a picky vegetarian, I'm often disappointed by menu options as they are sparse for those of us who don't enjoy...More

We had a late evening mid-week booking after a show at the Capitol. Service was a bit slow- mostly because they weren't expecting the post-show rush. That being said the wait staff were very friendly. The bartenders special cocktail was amazing - elegant flavors of...More

WHERE THE LOCALS EAT LOCAL. "An endless procession of chefs voice devotion to sustainable agriculture. Few Northeast Ohio restaurateurs exhibit so finely honed a commitment to farm-to-table cuisine as the Bebenroths." - Joe Crea, Dining Editor, Northeast Ohio Media Group At Spice, orders for "the usual" have been replaced by requests like, "I'll take whatever's growing." Our food and drink menus change seasonally, and our daily specials are infused with just-picked ingredients from our on-site hoop house or our farm in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. To Chef Ben Bebenroth, buying local is all about supporting independent growers who are strong stewards of our land. Our goal is to source at least 80% of all ingredients from small family farms practicing sustainable forms of agriculture within a 150-mile radius of Cleveland. Our revenue is kept within the community, not spread among a national corporate franchise, to help build momentum toward the revitalization of our city neighborhoods. For you, this means fresher, nutrient-dense ingredients that you can trust, prepared from scratch by classically trained chefs. Located at the gateway to Gordon Square Arts District, about 10 minutes west of downtown Cleveland, Spice also offers creative indoor and outdoor special events spaces for those seeking a new celebration destination.
