Nothing special and overpriced. I’d never come back but you have to eat at a Jean Georges restaurant once. The only decent thing was the Short Ribs… ohh and the green tea twinkie… yum.

a fabulous assortment of pan-asian cuisine, be careful about ordering a bottle of sparkling water as it is 10$, really loud atmosphere, good people watching, great asian food!!

Food is ok but nothing special and is overpriced. The decor is fantastic and there’s lots of good looking people around. I don’t give a shit about the “scene” so I’m not impressed that it’s a hot spot. I wouldn’t go back.

if you are English and living in NY and DON’T want to spend the night meeting brits then avoid this place. The restaurant is well appointed and has some spectular fusion dishes. You’ll eat well for sure. Worth popping into the Gaansvort accross the street if you’re in the area.

Really? Wow...

Wow…talk about a bad experience…I mean…people kept telling me how amazing Spice Market is…and…it sooo was not…like…it was horrible…just really really bad…I love Jean Georges and I’ve had many of the things on the menu before just by eating at his restaurants…but this was just a huge ass disappointment. Shall we begin? Although the restaurant was not even half full, the service was lacking and the food was just terribly slow. The mushroom egg rolls with galangal emulsion get rave reviews…but the skin on the egg rolls was like 10 layers too thick, and the galangal emulsion was just…not right with the egg rolls… I was expecting the shaved tuna with chili tapioca, Asian pear, and lime to me an interesting variation on the amazing JG classic of ribbons of tuna…it was not. The flavor combinations…just…didn’t work out too well…it was an alright dish at times, but it was also just a bit funky and weird and not in a good way…the Nonya Seafood Laksa was good, actually. I quite liked the dish, it was a nice dish. Nothing groundbreaking or spectacular, but it was good and flavorful with a soup that was scrumptious, but my companion assured me that the Laksa was far from being a good Laksa (I’d never had Laksa before). Then the troubles began. The coconut rice came out, and it was actually very good, I really liked that and Joyce loved it. But we waited and waited for that damn ginger fried rice. The duck curry came out…still no ginger fried rice…waited longer…the waitress gave us some jasmine rice to eat with the duck curry…the jasmine rice was terrible-really dry and just…blah…she came back with a lid for the duck curry pot…and at the same time the disaster that is the ginger fried rice came out. Is this what fried rice is? Rice soaked in oil? There was very little fry to the rice. It was more as if every single grain of rice had been dipped in oil, and there was barely any flavor of ginger. Instead, the overwhelming flavor, other than that of grease, was of this topping of fried ginger or garlic that just tasted horribly bitter and burned. It ruined the entire dish, even if it wasn’t insanely greasy. So not only did we wait ages in a far from crowded restaurant for this “fried rice”…it was nasty as well. I just decided to leave right then and there and took the duck curry home. The waitress asked me if I wanted the ginger fried rice to go, and my answer was a quick, stern, and decisive…oh NO…I’ve never had such a bad experience at a JG restaurant in my life…omg…

This place gets 5-stars for decor, and 3-stars for the food. Absolutely beautiful inside.

Food was average, rather basic. Short ribs were very tender but bordered on chewy, and lacked any significant flavor.
The calamari salad was the standout dish of the entire meal, and I would go back just to get this and a drink at the bar.

Our server was pleasant enough, and answered all of our questions very thoroughly. Dishes came out one at a time as they were ready, and I recommend sharing all the food, or else you’ll be waiting for your dish while your dining partner is finishing their plate.

Of course it’s all on the higher end of the price spectrum, but it’s the Meatpacking District, after all. You’re not going to eat ANYWHERE around there for less than $50-$75 per person.

good atmosphere, good flavors and service is generally good. Tables are small though and uncomfortable to sit at. better for drinks and a snack

I went with a large party and we ordered every appetizer. There were a lot of unusual, yet pleasantly surprising Asian flavors. I probably would’ve appreciated it more if I were more of a gourmand…or a big phony.

good celeb/trendy hot spot. One of the most visually stunning restaurants in the city. Don’t expect authentic or particularly mind-blowing food. Go for the atmosphere ( and the drinks) Be sure to chek out the downstairs.
Chicken Samosas, Lemon Grass Mussels and Calamari Salad are the best. Be sure to order the Pataya.
