    Incredible service with exceptional special touches. In the reservation, I noted that we were celebrating a special event. They surprised us with incredible "extras". Complimentary champagne toast for all 5 of us... special amuse bouche from the chef, and individually boxed truffles as we were leaving. The piano player even came over to ask about special requests. Our server Gillian was truly outstanding. The food was very good, 2 had the filet, 2 had trout, and 1 pork. The sides were plentiful to share - the mac and cheese was a standout. The only small disappointment was that the pork dish was quite dry. Highly recommed to everyone out for celebrating with a group. Noise level is energetic - which for fine for our event.

    Fabulous New Year's Eve dinner, food on par with fine dining in ATL, NY, and SFO. It is in Orlando and there were families with small children in this upscale restaurant so it did slow service slightly.

    I chose this restaurant for meeting up with two business associates that were visiting from out of town. I had never been here before, but saw all great reviews online. Spencer's more than lived up to them. The service from Che, our server, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and helped us choose the right menu items, as well as the wine. The portions were generous, and the steaks were outstanding. I travel a lot, and have had many steak dinners, and this was one of the best, ever. The Manager, Pedro, stopped by to ensure all was well. We had a drink at the bar beforehand, (and afterward), and the bartender Angelo made us feel right at home and made great martini. I would definitely go here again.

Both my wife and I had the New York strip steak and it was cooked to perfection. The best steak I ever had. I would love to go back there at anytime; just wish there was a Spencer's in New York.

    Never heard too much about Spencers when I made the reservations. Turned out to be a real treat for our party of 6. Service was over the top. I can't remember when I have had a better prime steak. Our server, Omar, could not have been more attentive. He made the dinner and our experience wonderful. Then as we left our cars were waiting outside with 2 bottles of water, a box of chocolates and a hand written thank you note. I have dined in 100's of restaurants and have never had such treatment. Fantastic!

    I met two old business friends for dinner, we had not been able to sit and catch up for several years. The atmosphere was inviting, food was great and prepared exactly to each of our preferences. Gillian, was helpful & knowledgeable with wine selections and menu specifics. My lamb chops were perfect, the mac and cheese is as good as any I have ever had anywhere. I dined at the bar two nights previously and had the flounder over kale, cooked to perfection, moist and not over done. As good as any NYC / Brooklyn or Raleigh / Durham restaurants I frequent. Altough this was a relaxed reunion with freinds, I would not hesitate to book Specners for a serious business meeting or romantic outing with my wife.

    We often take advantage of the September magical dining opportunities and we were not able to make it to Spencer's for their special however we found their information and menu intriguing enough that we decided to go in October and are so glad we did. I can see us going there once a month. The service was the best, the food was perfect in appearance, taste and temperature. I would highly recommend it. The valet service was amazing and the Restraunt manager had water, chocolate and a thank you note left in our car which was located right outside the Restraunt door all just because it was our first visit and we were locals! Can't wait to go again!

    I took 7 of my employees there from a neighboring hotel. For a restaurant in a hotel, the quality and service were surprisingly great. Bar scene was very blah and not warm, but the dinner portion of the evening was above my expectations. Decent wine list that was slightly pricey. Food was great. I'll go back again.

    My wife and I went to Spencer's and we were surprised at the variety of the menu. They have a selection of steaks and many choices of fish. I tried the Cobia and it was perfect along with a side of cheese grits and a Spencer's salad to start. To me this was Florida dining at it's best. My wife had a filet and the mac and cheese that she said was amazing and large enough to carry home half of it for lunch the next day.

    This is where I chose for my birthday dinner as I wanted something different. This has a decent Zagat rating has an interesting menu (bison is what I ended up choosing and it was very well executed, superb taste, and a good portion size). They offer ostrich, filet, multiple fish choices, and their sides are also excellent. My friend chose a white fish and it was perfectly cooked, solid flavor arrangement, and well plated. My mother chose the Spencer's Cut (ribeye), it was one of the best steaks either of us have had (rivals Fleming's and Ruth's Chris easily). The sides we chose were the baked potato, mac and cheese, and truffle french fries. The potato is certainly the largest potato they could've found, ever. They were all very excellent.

    Spencer's highly recommended within the Hilton as well as Orlando residents. Did not disappoint! Bartender Christine - amazing skills with Bourbon! She was friendly and provided the right amount of "attention" and "space" to kick our evening off right. Che our server - phenomenal. Again, present enough to provide all we needed, but gave us time to thoroughly enjoy our meal. My steak - outstanding. Well done!

    We attended as part of the Orlando Magical Dining Month. The food was quite good (took 2 tries on a few items). My fair rating of the service was generous (failure to bring requested items, failure to check back with the table, food left in the window too long, etc.) Finally, although I can recommend the restaurant because of the food, I will not return when the inappropriate corkage fee of $25/bottle ($75 for the table). This is tied with the highest rate in the City with the average at between $10 and $15. We always tip at least 20% even with fair service, but given the corkage and the other shortcommings, we left the 18% automatic tip in place without any additional tip... maybe this is what our server was thinking all along.

    We waited a few minutes to see a server, but after the initial wait, he was always there when we needed him, perhaps a bit frantic in manner. Well made cocktails to start. Food was great overall. Lobster bisque, colossal shrimp cocktail, and roasted strawberries for appetizer. Great, unique combination of flavors in the roasted strawberry dish. Both steaks were closer to medium than the medium-rare we ordered, but the quality was definitely there, great texture. Apricot chamomile and strawberry pavlova for dessert. Both excellent. Nice after dinner drink list, fairly priced. Overall a great evening. Manager stopped by the table to check on us and gave us a 20% off vip card. We'll be back!

    This is my girlfriend and I's 5th time at this restaurant and it never ceases to amaze. I want to point out that everyone exceeds excellence at the restaurant, especially our favorite waiter Che. However, this particular time we were blown away by the caring and generous service by the manager Pedro. He truly did everything he could to make our experience as amazing as possible; so much so that the couple we dined with said "it felt like we were celebrities." The food is amazing, the atmosphere is transcendent, but its the service that makes Spencer's what it is - a Gem in the heart of Orlando. A MUST GO!

    Spencer's made a wonderful choice for date night with the wife; the food was excellent and ambiance was perfect for the evening. Spencer's creates a quiet environment in a beautiful hotel, allowing you to enjoy your evening while still interacting with their attentive wait staff. Each course of the meal was another jolt to the palate, layering on new sensations; a wonderful find for magical dining. My wife's filet was perfect and their finish of sea salt and olive oil enhanced the flavor of the exquisite cut of meat. Spencer's is a must try, tucked among the all the chain restaurants and flashing lights of the tourist/ convention district.

They offered a wine pairing for a small additional fee, and it was well worth the extra. The food was fantastic and the service outstanding. They also had a pianist, which made for a nice atmosphere.

    I can't begin to tell you how amazing this restaurant is! Truly a gem and the BEST STEAKHOUSE IN ORLANDO. The seasonal menu changes to incorporate the freshest and most delicious foods. Also the service is all around great, but if you are lucky enough to have CHE as your waiter you are in for a treat. He is the definition of going above and beyond, and arguably the best server I have ever seen. He takes this restaurant and elevates it to a different level with the help of his Hot who is equally concerned with making your night one to remember. We will no doubt be going back to Spencers often, and we will be requesting CHE every single time!!

    We were looking for a way to celebrate the end of a 3 week remodel at the house, and this was the place to do it. Dining here compares to a high-end cruise. The service was impeccable, food unique and delicious, atmosphere was comfortable but nice. It did get a little loud, but it was a busy Friday night. You know you've dined somewhere special when you collect your car from the valet and find two chilled bottles of water, a bag of chocolate-covered pretzels and a thank you note from the waiter. We will definitely return for a special occasion.

    Spencer's is a beautiful restaurant. The decor is very modern and lavish with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the pool and gardens of the Hilton Hotel on International Drive. This was our first time there but we will be back. The menu was great, with a lot of choices I would like to try. My wife had the pork chop with a sweet glaze that was amazing and I had a steak filet that was very tender and delicious.
