Disappointed given the location. Traveling from Oakville, very pricey for what you get. The girl at the egg station, no gloves.

Had a wonderful time at Spencer’s at the Waterfront. Their drinks are absolutely amazing, and reasonably priced. My appetizer and entree were the perfect combination of upscale dining with a touch of comfort food. Our server, Nadia, was outstanding.

Met a business acquiantance for dinner. Food was okay, very little choice among entrees for vegetarian. The service for food was decent. But they forgot about coffee and we sat there for 10-15 minutes. When it finally arrived it was cold. I had to return it! I have been here a few times now and although the views are spectacular and ambience is good, the food is just okay and the service is a hit or miss. Not great value for the expensive restaurant that it is!

We were on date night and enjoyed the Steak Frits special with a bottle of Niagara wine. This was very good value and everything was delicious. Our server was very welcoming and very knowledgeable of the Niagara wine that came with the meal special.
We were well taken care of.

We went for Easter brunch. The table service was amazing: very quick, friendly, funny, helpful. The food was terrific; there was lots of choice and barely any wait for anything! Though it is not inexpensive, the freshness of the food and its plentifulness—not to mention the beautiful views of Lake Ontario—make the trip worth it!

I booked quite a few weeks in advance and specifically called twice and spoke to Julie and another girl that I really really wanted to sit by the window as it was my special birthday and my 85 year old mom was so excited to come for the first time
When I got there I was seated in the middle of the room!
When I went back to the reception the two girls just looked at each other and said so sorry that’s the only seats we have
I asked for a manager to call me and no one called or bothered to come to our table!
No one cared therefore the big 60th birthday that I was going to book in August for my husband will definitively not be booked at Spencer’s they have lost my business

Amazing meal but pricey. Based on taste of the meal, it was worth the price. I have severe food allergies and I was happily accommodated. The filet Minton was tender and scrumptious.

It is our third time here and we love it. Beautiful lakeshore view + sun-shining Sunday + fresh food + nice cappuccino = perfect.
It is a bit expensive though for a Sunday brunch, considering the amount I eat. But I definitely recommend it for special occasions or when you want to cheer up ;)

We have dined here over the years multiple times. The food during our last luncheon was noticeably different and the quality just wasn’t up to par. Extremely disappointed as we have our wedding shower booked here. We hope the food will be better for our beautiful event!

Brunch was very good. Beautiful atmosphere, attentive waitress, good selection. It's pricy but for a special occasion it's worth it. Dessert selections were okay, but wish they had some kind of lemon and maybe some profiterales or more small tart options.

This is my second time and I will 100% be back many more times. It's a bit pricey for my liking, but its 100% worth it, I just wish I made more money lol. The servers are absolutely incredible and the food is amazing. The lady at the Omelette station is one of the friendliest Food Service people have ever dealt with.
