Every portion of the meal was cold. The waiter forgot to put in part of our order. He was at least kind enough to remove the billing for the side order. There are many other steakhouses in Omaha that can prepare a better meal.

We made reservation for an anniversary on 4/1, a Thursday evening, when we arrived it seemed like the hostess didn’t know or look to check for our reservation. We were excited for a new experience at a place we haven’t tried before. We upgraded our steak pairings and we LOVED the French onion soup!! YUM!! By far the highlight. However the caesar salad was a little disappointing. Our steaks were tasty. But our 1/2 order side items weren’t put in, so we opted out of getting them as we were over half way through our steaks at that point. We’d have really liked to try the asparagus and the smashed potatoes though. Service was okay but the waiter was pretty busy. Beer prices were a little pricey but expected at a nice restaurant.

Birthday celebration. Service was superior, food was excellent, and the ambiance memorable. We tried the special hash browns,
half order. Really different and enjoyable. Ribeye and lobster tails were exceptional. Our waitress was Kayla, she was on top of
everything. Thanks for a great evening, Paul and Linda.

Valentines dinner with my wife and two other couples. Been to Spencers several times before but I won’t go back again for a Valentines dinner. The service was poor and disorganized from the response to phone calls to arriving and checking in hoping to have our coats checked.
The menu was desperately overpriced and though the food was good the service slow and dismal. It took a long time to get the orders taken and meal served and we struggled to get desert and coffee was cold.
Spencer’s can be great but tonight it left a lot to be desired. I am sure none of my companions will be dining there again.

Valentines Day celebration in the bar at a shared high top - just what we wanted - not! We made reservations well in advance for a lovely dinner to celebrate love/romance. While we sat at a high top with 4 other people next to us, watching MMA (luckily it wasn't too bloody that night), listening to rock music in the bar area of the beautiful restaurant, we were disappointed...our night was ruined. Don't get me wrong, the service, food, wine, even the manager made sure the food was perfect - it took the ambience to ruin it for the rest of the evening. We will be back, but will require a table in the restaurant area.

Food was outstanding, but service was very slow. Our waiter was very nice and apologetic, and he comped drinks and desserts for us, but it took almost 20 minutes for us to get our drinks and at lease an hour for our food. Also, something was wrong with the music, because it kept cutting out.

We went for an early Valentine’s dinner. They were busy and seated us at a high top in the bar, not what we planned for a date night! Dillon was our server and he was great. He was attentive and made some good recommendations. I had the filet medium rare but it came out closer to medium. They were apologetic and quickly started another filet. My wife has scallops which she really enjoyed and we had 1/2 orders of mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, and loaded hash browns as sides. When the brought my second filet it was done perfectly. Jake the manager stopped at our table to apologize for the mistake on the filet and offered to pick up our desserts. We had the cheese cake and lemon creme brûlée. The cheesecake was tasty and big enough for 3 or 4 people to split. I’m was pleasantly surprised by the creme brûlée and rank it as my favorite dessert, ever!

Love Spencers, but the $30 and under price is misleading. Expect to pay $35-60 per meal. Only options under $30 are the sides and appetizers... with that being said, this place is worth the price!

We made a reservation at Spencer's for New Year's Eve because our normal place was booked. We've been to Spencer's a few times previously, and it's close to our home so we tried it again. The server was a little to bubbly for my liking, but nice overall. The food and service were really the issue. We ordered the bisque soup which the menu said had lump lobster meat. When the soup arrived, it was much too salty, and no lump lobster meat was in the cup. I had ordered my salad without cheese, croutons, and onions. The salad was to have dressing, apples, carrots, candied walnuts and a few other goodies. When my salad came, it had nothing on it but dressing. When I inquired where everything else was, the person that delivered my salad said the staff wasn't sure what I wanted so they left everything off. Our server, took the salad and replaced it with the proper one. The dressing was ok, but fairly tasteless. When our entrées were delivered, they came without the cold water lobster tail add-on. Our server came to the table and admitted it was an oversight due to some confusion on her part when we were ordering. During the ordering process, we had inquired about the lobster tail which was $40 for "half" pound; the server said it was a misprint and that it was a "full" pound and could be added to any meal, so we added it. But she didn't realize we did, I guess. The manager then came to the table and apologized for the mix up and removed the $40 charge for the tail. We received the lobster tail a few minutes later. Our entrées were both cooked properly and tasty. The dessert was good; the bread was good too. But service blunders and a few misses on the food gave us pause. The price at Spencer's is one of the highest in town. On this occasion, it fell short of living up to our expectations based on the price of the meal. $236 with tax and tip. Whew. Oh and that's without that $40 lobster tail.

Don’t order mashed potato. Dinner already comes with sweet potatoes. Waitress should have told us. Very few customers and food took over an hour to arrive. Chops were excellent.

What a great first dining experience on Wed. Nov 11th! A friend and I were visiting Omaha to visit a couple of historic sites on a midweek get-away and decided to dine in our hotel that evening. Everything about dinner was fantastic; from the time we were greeted to dessert and what a beautiful restaurant. Our server was Nathan and he is outstanding! He provided the perfect level of service in all aspects - he was friendly, outgoing and very knowledgeable regarding each menu (drinks, dinner and dessert).

The food was amazing; I highly recommend the Prime Beef Meatloaf with a half order of Brussels sprouts. Delicious! My friend had the Scottish Salmon and she was very pleased with her meal as well. The entire presentation was beautiful (even the house chopped salad was lovely with a champagne vinaigrette); it's obvious there is much care taken to make sure the meal is enjoyed and not just simply eaten.

The desserts are terrific and when we had a question about the unusual crust on the Hot Cinnamon Apple Pie, Nathan was happy to bring the pastry chef to our table so we could chat with him - he was just the nicest man and what an asset to Spencer's!! I chose the Chocolate Fudge Naughty Cake and let me say if you have never had a flourless chocolate dessert, this is the one to try! It was out of this world decadent!!

The portions are generous so we had leftovers and took them with us to have for lunch on the way home the next day - that was a treat as everything was even better the next day!

I would give all the stars to the Spencer's staff if I could; definitely looking forward to the next time!
