The service was great and our food was delicious. The menu offers a variety from seafood to steak. The creme brûlée was amazing!

Food was scrumptious! David was outstanding with his service! He even talked the receptionist into loaning her sunglasses to my wife! Spencer’s is a bit pricey but truly excellent.

I am not in the habit of leaving bad reviews...but when the quality of what used to be a special occasion meal in the past...that has declined so much...I feel the need to share.
The steaks have always been quality and cooked to perfection...this time did not disapoint.
However, beyond the steak, the rest was disapointing. In the past...a quality vegetable was served alongside the main protein. This time we got a spoonful of overcooked stirfry peppers that were being served in a teriyaki bowl fed to conventioners. What a slap in the face to be served crappy leftovers alongside a $54
Steak.
The bernaise sauce, which of course was an extra charge, was too salty to eat...let alone being barely luke warm.

Another observation...after watching a busboy spill several glasses of water all over the floor at the table next to us...he never came back to clean up the mess.
It looked like a slipping accident waiting to happen.

We left feeling cheated from what used to be an enjoyable experience.

I ordered a cocktail from the bar that was bad so I sent it back
I then ordered a Manhattan and it was terrible and couldn’t drink it
The bar apparently is doing a horrible job on cocktails
I think the restaurant is way over priced for what you get

Spencer’s was great for dinner. We had lobster croquettes, beet salad, surf & turf and the salmon special. We also enjoyed breakfast there the next morning.

We liked the brightness and energy in the bar area, so sat there rather than in the more formal dining section. We had a wonderful waitress, Therese and we enjoyed French onion soup and Caesar salad.

Very poor service. In all my years of dining at Spencer’s in Spokane, SeaTac, Palm Springs etc. I have never had a more disconnected and inattentive Server. Our last couple of visits have seemed to decline. Waiting 25 minutes from drinks to Server checking on our party of 8 is a complete failure. We had planned to order appetizers but gave up on doing so. We then discussed leaving and going somewhere else but decided to try and order. When our food did arrive it just wasn’t up to previous Spencer’s visits. Our group discussed the fact we would not be returning.

If the food were really good, that would be one thing positive, but the food is mediocre at best. The wait staff is lovely but hardly polished. The prices are higher than New York City or Tokyo: Really offensive.

Limited menu. Overpriced. I would expect these prices down town bellevue or Seattle not the SeaTac Hilton...

For crab cakes as an appetizer, two side Caesar salads and one cocktail it was $75.

The cocktail was not great.

We enjoyed Spencers. The menu was not close to what the website said it would be. Very limited menu - maybe because it was Christmas, but....that was not a Christmas menu.

Ahi was fishy smelling. Good fish does not smell.

Risotto was under cooked with little taste.

New York was average.

Waiter was friendly and helpful.

I ordered two appetizers, an 6 oz piece of beef, a side of veg, and two cocktails..... the bill was $150.00!! Ended up each menus item was treated as alecarte. My bad, didn’t spend the time price shopping, just thought I would order what fit my diet restrictions. Thought the staff might make it fair. Oh well, it’s a hotel restaurant. Captive audience.

If I am going to spend $150 before tip for 2 on dinner I expect to enjoy a meal better than I could do at home. It wasn’t. I suppose it was beyond expectations for a hotel venue at SeaTac. I didn’t leave hungry, just disappointed. Over cooked fish, over priced 6 oz. strip steak that was just ok, glass of wine markup that is infuriating. Should I be so picky? Yep.

We made the reservation at Spencer's because we were staying at the Hilton, entertaining relatives living near Seattle but didn't want to rent a car to meet them as we had an early flight out the following morning. Boy were we pleasantly surprised! We expected a decent meal. What we got was five great meals! Three of us order meat, two ordered fish. All were excellent; the meat perfectly cooked to order and incredibly tasty; the fish cooked but still moist. The appetizers were equally excellent: the oysters cold and tasting as if they had just been harvested; the Capresse made with heritage tomatoes and wonderful creamy cheese. Everything was truly excellent.
So good that we two travelers ate there on our return trip through Seattle International. If we lived in Seattle, we would make it a destination restaurant.

Oysters, onion soup, and crab cakes were good. Rib eye and king salmon were OK. Halibut was overcooked therefore dry. Wine wasn't ready/aged. Our server was knowledgeable. All staff were very nice, friendly and helpful.

14 oz pork chop excellent, halibut very good, Cesar salad could use a little more dressing, asparagus very good, whipped potatoes good flavor, tasty apple pie and two premium drinks. all for $50 less than Ruth Chris. Classy environment.

Food was okay. It lacked originality. Waiter was very good.. If you are hungry, don't want fast food, want a quiet spot and in a hurry for lunch this place will work. If you are looking for fine dining, I try another place first.

Parking was very difficult. The valet was backed up and I had to park several blocks away. The food was pretty good, but I paid 148 dollars for a steak that was under cooked. My wife’s salad was fishy. Very overpriced. Excellent service and our server was very attentive and friendly.
