The braised Short Ribs were wonderful and the Norwegian Salmon was also great. Really no complaints.. The food was fantastic and the mood and waitress were spot on. This was part of the Trio offer.. Just wonderful.

It was very busy at Spencers this visit. This tells you what a good restaurant it is.
I had my usual Chinese Chicken Salad which is fantastic. I will be back.

We ate outside under the trees and lights. The pre-fixe menu was easy to choose from. The Caesar salad was especially delicious.
Our two fish dishes were also very good. The deserts that were included were just ok.
Service was warm and attentive.

I love the lunch specials. I had the filet of trout, broccoline and potatoes, salad and bread pudding desert. The trout was perfectly prepared, and it is my favorite special so I love when they offer it. Server Rafael was excellent as was Norma.

Great ambiance! Need reservations, especially during the season. Had Manhattan up in a Martini glass which was yummy but pretty pricey @ $15. Ordered business lunch which is a good value with soup or salad choice, entree choice, dessert and coffee. Mom ordered liver and onions with bacon which was huge, portion wise. She said it was very tender and loved it. Buspersons were on top of it, filling water glasses, bringing bread, food, etc. The only downside, a first for me, as I have been here many times, was the waiter. Lagged in service quite a bit in timing, attention, etc. He needs more training/help! Plus food seemed to take longer than expected, 55mins. Yet, I will still come back, maybe not during peak season.

Although we thought the food was good the portions were far too large for our tastes and far too much salt was used. As tourists we don’t have the facilities to reheat doggy bags which we noticed were taken away by most other diners. Why not reduce the portion size, reduce the price and save the planet by not having to use so many polystyrene containers each in its own plastic bag. Some more moderately priced wines would also be appreciated.

We were looking for a romantic experience as they had advertised and were seated at a 2 top less than a foot away from a a loud 4 top. We looked at each other an said NOT HAPPENING. Then we’re seat at a much more comfortable table so we could at least have private conversation. Food was good but we felt a little awkward as the server had a private conversation with what appeared to be a manager. She appeared to be annoyed.

We were entertaining out of town business guests. It was their first time in Palm Springs so taking them to Spencer’s for a fabulous meal impressed them. The menu had gotten even better since we last tuned there. More appetisers to choose from and a prox fixe. Spencer’s quality was ever present so the meal did not disappoint.

The food was excellent, the waiter was a bit “flat”. He seamed like he did not want to be there or maybe was bored. He had the mains brought to the table before we finished our hors d'oeuvre! We asked to bring it in 10 mins and he did. We enjoyed our meal but it could have been better!

We loved the ambiance which made the food taste that much better. The calamari was tender and tasty. And the short rib was lean and tender. The whitefish was perfect. Overall a great place to enjoy the outdoors in the hills of Palm Springs.
