I have eaten at the Spice on Park Ave, (Winter Park) for lunch and dinner and have always had great food. I ate at the Lake Mary location last week with friends and was less than impressed.
Lobster Bisque tasted somewhat fishy and a bit like flour (A Roux that had not been cooked long enough?) and while it had a nice chunk of lobster, the bisque was pretty bland....the fishy and the flour being the only prevalent tastes. : ( The Winter Park location bisque has always been great!!
I also ordered the Guiness Fried Oysters, which were (sadly) not served warm. They were nice sized oysters but didn't taste of Guiness and were served with a sauce that tasted like hoisin sauce. I might have to try it again at Winter Park to see how they come out.
The rest of the party was happy with their chicken and steak entrees, the Rosemary Chicken looked the best. My friend commented the filet was *very* petite for the price.
Not many people were at the Lake Mary location during prime dining hours on a Thursday.
Has anyone tried the new Downtown location yet?
