Wow. How unfortunate. What I had hoped for was a consistent gourmet restaurant in the Lansing scene. Made reservations for dinner. Seated immediately, So far so good. Then the wheels fell off....waited nearly 10 minutes for outlets server to take our drink order and at least 10 minutes more to get drinks. Finally had to ask if our drinks might... More

We had Soup Spoon for one of our business lunches. It was delivered and it was still warm and the bread wasn't soggy at all! Everyone kept commenting on how good their food was so I would say we all enjoyed it. Quality ingredients combined in a creative way and prepared well... delicious!

The long lines are indicative of what you'll find inside. Great food, large portions, excellent service. They're closed on Sundays so they can spend time with their families - that's great - please don't change it!!

One of my favorite places in Lansing. Meets different price points with inventive and delicious entrees, soups, and sandwiches. Draft beer selection is always changing and there is always something for each taste. Even after expanding, they tend to fill up, however, well worth the wait!!

I was passing through Lansing and saw this place. It is fairly large so it can handle a lot of people. Quick to be seated. There was a line up but it moved fast. I had a draft craft beer, $5, and the soup flight of 4 different cups of soup for $10. Outstanding. Seafood chowder, French onion soup, chicken... More

Did a lot of research before choosing a brunch spot while traveling in Lansing. Soup Spoons has tremendous reviews and, honestly, I'm not sure why. It's OK at best. I think the reviews are in comparison to other places in Lansing. If you're a true foodie looking for great food... I'm not sure Lansing has what you're looking for. This... More

Had dinner here with family. The food was uniformly good. The lobster bisque was exceptionally tasty. I must admit that I don't care a thing about all the "local sourced" this and that. I enjoyed myself but I'm giving four not five stars because I can't remember what I had for a main course. This makes me guess that is... More

A small fairly busy restaurant - but amazing food sourced from local distributes, farms, etc. Prices are amazing for the portions and quality of food. Open kitchen is a special touch and the employees seemed to be enjoying their job, which is always nice to see. Would recommend to anyone in the Lansing area.
