A word from Spencer's
Spencer’s for Steak and Chops, conveniently located lobby-level in Hilton Americas-Houston, is open for lunch and dinner specializing in USDA Prime Beef, the most tender and flavorful of steaks. But Spencer’s is more than just steaks; seafood, chops and innovative side dishes combine to make Spencer’s the ultimate in fine dining. Offering one of Houston’s most extensive wine lists, Spencer’s is not your typical steakhouse, always maintaining the highest standards for taste and quality for which they are famous. Dine in our luxuriously appointed dining room, or choose from two glass enclosed wine rooms providing a sophisticated private dining option for groups of two to twelve. Spencer’s Lounge, located adjacent to Spencer's restaurant, is the ideal location to meet with friends or entertain associates. Enjoy friendly conversation, hand-crafted martinis and selections from Spencer’s vast wine list as you relax in the comfort of the lounge’s lavish surroundings.

Spencer's reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Expected better
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/16/2012
    I guess I expected too much. Wait staff was excellent. The place was not busy at all. Food took over 20 minutes to be served. My wife's filet ($48) was requested medium well "a little pink". Steak was basically burnt on the outside, no pink in the middle. Not slightly charred from flame, burnt. My Ribeye ($48)(Spencer's steak) was also ordered Medium well " a little pink inside". Steak came out overly well done with no pink inside, dry and flavorless. Signature Mashed potatoes ($10)were over-seasoned and had a very odd after taste, almost chemical. Salad was excellent with a mix of field greens and a really good balsamic vinaigrette. Very fresh tasting. Once again, wait staff was excellent. Director was kind and courteous.

    My wife and I had dinner at the Houston Spencer's. They have great food--appetizers were delicious. We shared the crab cakes and tomato salad. Steaks were cooked just as ordered. My wife likes her really rare and Spencer's is one of the few places that will actually serve it this way. Delecious dessert--my wife is not a sweat's person, but she ate all of her deconstructed apple pie. My chocalate cake was very good--just too much after such a large meal. Service was first rate and the atmosphere is excellent. Unfortunately, we were told that the restaurant is being closed by the City of Houston on November 16--they decided to rent the space to another group that will turn this elegant dining experience into a Mexican food place--bo

    As good as the food/service at Spencer's were, we were informed by our waiter that the restaurant is closing in mid-November. The hotel in which it is housed is going with a completely different concept in that space. What a shame! We had spent the evening thinking that we had just found a 'go to' restaurant for trips downtown. No such luck...

    We went before a concert at the Toyota Center so it was pretty lively in the hotel. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was great. the food was excellent as well. We had the crab cakes for a starter which were relish! Then my friend and I shared the 8 oz filet with the oscar topping. I ordered the sauteed msuhrooms but sent them back, not very good and ordered the creamed spinach. That was good as well as the bread pudding for dessert. Its pricey, but I had a groupon so it knocked off quite a bit.

    We really loved our first visit to Spencer's. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. All of the appetizers we ate were outstanding but of particular note were the corn chowder and oysters. Our waiter deftly guided us through the menu and was a really big help in keeping us on a schedule to allow us to get to the theatre on time. We went light on entrees saving room for the delicious dessert menu but the halibut was really delicious. The dessert trio was very rich and our table had mixed reactions to the pumpkin spice gelato not because it didn't taste good. It just wasn't what some of us expected. A special treat of the evening was a cranberry sorbet made with Ketel One...incredible!

    I love this restaurant! I've been there twice, once just because and the other day for my 25th Birthday. Both times my boyfriend and I dined here they sat us in a private glass wine room, which was super fancy and romantic. The food is excellent and the service is great too. My boyfriend is a cattle rancher and he said that the ribeye he had (both times) was only second to his own. :) I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. It is inside the Hilton Americas Downtown, and Spencer's will validate your valet parking. Also, both times we went we had a Bloomspot coupon, so look out for those because they are great deals! And the staff is not snobby about you using a "coupon".

    We went to Spencer's for our anniversary and noted that on our reservation. From the moment we walked in we were given the VIP treatment, including special seating in a private glassed-in nook. The Caesar salads were exceptional, served cornucopia-style (spilling out of a delicious parmesan crisp). The surf and turf was equally impressive, with perfectly seasoned jumbo shrimp and one of the best steaks we have ever had. We tend to rotate between Del Frisco's, Ruth's Chris, Perry's and Pappas Brothers for our steak cravings. Spencer's was every bit as good, the ambiance was more romantic, and the prices seemed slightly more reasonable. The service was absolutely top-notch. We will definitely return soon.
