Spice Street - Chapel Hill, NC

Unfortunately, I recently had a disappointing experience at Spice Street - I'd never eaten there for dinner, but when several of us went on Friday evening, the service was bad and the food seemed overpriced. For example, at some points during the meal different servers interrupted and repeatedly tried to offer us plates that had already been brought to our table. In general, the service seemed very disorganized. Also, I had a crabcake with potatoes on the side - I couldn't tell if the potatoes were supposed to be served cold or hot; there were some that were warm and some that were cold. Very odd. The crabcake was nothing special, especially for $23. Overall, I was disappointed. I don't know if they were just having a bad night, or if this is a regular thing. I've been there before for drinks and appetizers at the bar, and found the bartenders very friendly and competent and the food was good then, but this experience for dinner was another story. At this point, I think I'd go back for drinks and snacks, but not dinner.

  1. I've been to Spice Street for dinner a couple of times, and felt the same way. I don't recall the service being all that bad, but the food was definitely not worth the $$. That was a few years ago, but it sounds like not much has changed. Glad to hear that I'm not missing out on anything.
