    After 4 years of going to Spencer's it is pretty safe to say that I know the restaurant very well, but I still get excited over magical dining, when you are able to try new favorites as part of a price fix menu. The iceberg salad, which is basically the best version of a wedge salad I have ever had was amazing. My fiancée goes nuts over the crab cakes and rightfully so. The filet is ALWAYS juicy and flavorful and the new deserts are wonderful (just do yourself a favor and get the grand mariner cake). Also if you make your reservation ahead of time you might be able to request Che as your server. He is an absolute delight and the most intricate part of what elevates the entire meal from excellent to exquisite.

    Dined on 9/22/2014
    The filet was very good, tender and nicely seasoned. However, this was after it had to be re-fired on the grill. Asked for medium to medium well, waitstaff recommended what they call a medium+. Sounded like what I wanted, except it came out medium rare pink and chewy. After they re-fired though it was perfect. Would have gone 4 star, but the same thing happened twice to another in our party. It was rather busy that evening, and this understandably can happen on occasion, but not 3 times at one table. If you're going to call yourself a steakhouse, you need to know how to fire a steak the first time.

    Excellent food, especially the steaks, but the service was sorely lacking. Even though they were only about half full on a Monday night, it took almost an hour for our first course to arrive, the second course another 45 minutes. After we had to ask for the check it was brought, but the waiter never returned. We had to ask another waiter to take our card. Hopefully they were just having a particularly bad night, because the steak was perfect. The wine list is extensive with some excellent choices. The sides were very good, but over-salted. The first course of heirloom tomatoes and burrata was quite good and adequate to split. Unfortunately they seem to be geared to an expense-account clientele whom they do not expect to return.

    Absolutely the main reason this place gets 5 stars, our server! Richard was phenomenal! We both have dietary restrictions and allergies and this man went out of his way OVER and OVER again! We normally just "make do" but, he absolutely made sure we dined sufficiently! I highly recommend him as the server no matter what he is an expert at his craft and we are so grateful for the wonderful experience he that ensured we have that evening. Thanks again Richard!

    My wife and I were exited to try Spencer’s magical dining for the first time. We walked in and told greeters that we had a res and were there for magical dining. They told us they were changing their menu and not starting until the next week. We were disappointed since they did not print this on their page or the magical dining page. However the manager expressed his apologies and told us they would offer a portion off the bill due to the inconvenience, we were delighted to stay and try it. Che was our waiter and provided outstanding service. The food was excellent, my wife and I started out with the burrata (homemade) and the veal cheek (tender).For the main course I had the rib eye and my wife had the lobster. Overall was excellent.

    I have been going with my fiancee to Spencers for over 3 years now, and I am so happy to say that the level of quality is always excellent, and exceeds our every expectation. Every aspect of the dining experience always seems to amaze, and the menu creations by Chef Spencer are to die for. Just make sure that if you eat there you request Che as your server, he is the best I have ever come to know, in ANY restaurant I have ever been to in my life. He has been taking care of us for the last 3 years and always will go out of his way to make your time there nothing short of amazing! It is so rare in orlando to find a restaurant that is able to consistently stay at such an unparralleled level and we are so happy to have found it!

    Servers and managers very pleasant and courteous. They went out of their way to make the experience a good one. Steak very good; other entree served cold. Server quickly was there to fix the problem. But my husband was finished with his dinner before I got mine.This made experience not as pleasant as it could be since we both watched the other eat.

    We had a party of 7 people and all of us left amazed. The food was cooked to perfection and the staff accommodated our gluten free and lactose free guests. The food came out at perfect times. I had the New York Strip with peppercorn sauce. As I side, it seemed our table favorite was the corn - it was sweet and creamy. Everything about this night was perfect!

    The Spencer's Resturant is a highly recommended Steak House seafood restaurant inside of the award winning resort Hilton Orlando and this would be my fourth visit to this restaurant and we always enjoy our visit there because of the excellent service received and the food quality and presentation is to the utmost. The staff are very friendly and courteous and readily available at your service anytime. Thanks to Jackie our personal waitress who was very good to us and also Victor the Manager who had arranged something special for my sister for her birthday which was awesome. We definitely would be back to Spencer's and this restaurant is a must for your visit to the Orlando area for great steaks and chops.

    My husband and I took my nephew and sister for his graduation. Great ambiance with piano player. We had the oysters, the cauliflower bisque, heirloom tomato salad, Filet Mignon, NY strip, bone-in rib eye, hash browns, French fries, ice cream, bourbon cake, coffee and cappuccino. Everything was outstanding, just watch out for: the bisque has lots of cream so it's very rich, the fries looked wilted to me, I didn't taste them, but was told that they are soaked in vinegar before frying, and the steaks come seasoned so make sure to ask for them plain, if you are like me. The service was five-stars. It's a little pricey ($300+) but worth it.

    Spencers is a very convenient place to dine while staying at this Hilton, but we found the experience quite over rated. The atmosphere is beautiful and the staff is overly attentive, but the $60 steak was not outstanding. The bread is identical to Red Lobster and the expensive appetizer was only fair. On our next stay, I would choose to skip the convenience and drive to another restaurant for dinner.

    Appetizers were terrible with the exception of the soup. We were a party of three. Two of us had the lobster entre, one of us had the pork chop. The lobster & pork chop were both disappointing. Pork chop was flavorless & the lobster was over cooked and lacked any flavor. The side dishes were also flavorless. They were creamed spinach and mac & cheese. All in all , food was terrible, way to expensive, ($20 for a glass of red wine!), service from our waitor was very good until the end when he disappeared. He must of known our dissatisfaction. $20 for a glass of red wine! Outrageous and a big rip-off. Very bad!

    We've been coming to Spencer's for 3 years now, and they never, EVER disappoint! The menu is constantly changing, and even though we begin to miss our old favorites, we are immediately blow away by the new creations from chef spencer that become our new ones. The best part though, is always the service from Che, our favorite server, and it is also nothing short of impeccable. He does absolutely everything to make your meal special. The only problem we have is that when we leave, we want to come right back!

    The food was over priced. The service was helpful, polite and good. Salads are too large - fine to share one for two people. The "prime NY strip" was goodies expected excellent. The second fiber said the fish was good. The a la carte vegetables/potatoes are over priced. The brussell sprouts were much too sweet. Wines are, as you might expect, over priced, although a nice selection of wine by the glass. I found the table too large -- hard to talk across the table to the second diner. I am sure it is the best restaurant in the hotel but I do not recommend it.

I don't care what your favorite steakhouse is, you have not had a perfectly cooked steak until you've dined at Spencer's. Lord have mercy, this was not only the best steak I've ever had, but the best steak I probably will EVER have.... until the next time at Spencer's. Do not deprive yourself of this experience.

    Well trained friendly waiter. Good was in the tad bit cold side. Seemed to have been sitting before I got it. Crab cakes were just ok and would not order again. Over priced for what you receive. I was expecting a Ruth Chris experience. Waiter made it tolerable however he had too many tables to cover.
