Great good and service situated in a beautiful outdoor setting on beautiful grounds.
Lovely evening out on the patio,
All good, food and service was amazing! The lobster gazpacho was too salty for me so I pushed it aside and ordered the wedge salad which was the best ever!! And they serve a perfect martini !
Fantastic experience! Food was excellent and the service was better. We recommend seating for the courtyard as it was romantic and beautiful!
Wonderful food and ambiance! Tree covered Patio is worth dining at.
We had a wonderful lunch and superior food and service and will return soon!
This is a special place. The food and service continue to be excellent. It was a perfect place to sit and talk business in a quiet atmosphere.
Service was perfect
Food was cooked to perfection
Amazing food. Amazing atmosphere. Amazing waiter! Amazing drinks!! Best place in Palm Springs hands down. Thank you!
Another lovely meal at Spencer’s outside on the patio. Soft shell crabs were delicious. All staff are so wonderful and attentive! Setting is exquisite.
Food excellent, as usual. Ambience - perfect. Our waiter was his usual top-notch self. Older gentleman we recognize from pre-coovid days. So nice to see him again and experience superb service. So sad we don't now his name.
We sat on the beautiful out door patio. The staff were friendly and attentive.
The food was high quality and well prepared.
First time coming here and everything was delicious. A very nice restaurant for a date or special occasion!
4 month anniversary
We love Spencer's. The food was very good. My son and granddaughter had the Filet and Cindy shared the coconut shrimp and had the Mac n cheese which she loves.
I did the Special king salmon and of course the banana split.
The food was delicious. Great ambiance and setting.
Great food & service. Nice ambience outdoors.
Ambiance is amazing. The food was really good. Enjoyed our dinner. It is up against the mountains. Great location off of the strip.
A delightful, unrushed dining experience in the lovely indoor patio with huge trees creating a canopy above. Both the white fish and the vegetarian option were delicious. And -- the iceberg wedge salad! Okay, it's rather mundane but whatever they did made it special. And, it's HUGE!
Love the outdoor dining area. Service and food were excellent. We were very well attended too.

Patio is always lovely. Some dishes are excellent and some not so. But always a good experience.
Breakfast with my husband.
The dining area was terrific and the service was very good, but unfortunately, we had to move our table due to a very loud celebration at the table next to us. Some generally celebratory noise we can take. But this was ridiculous. And the dress code, even for a restaurant that bills itself as "resort casual," was a little too lax. Guy next to us was wearing what at best could be called gym shorts and a t-shirt and decided it was a good idea to keep bending over the shoulders of his tablemates while stick his butt out farther and farther -- crack and all. No self-awareness at all. Had to ask to move our table and quickly learned we weren't the first guests to make the complaint. Thanks, Spencer's for moving us quickly and sparing us from what would have been a terrible evening.
A casual meal or a special occasion, Spencer's is a perfect place. Sit in the charming patio - it's quite lovely. Fish entrees were fabulous, especially the crispy skin white fish and the Norwegian salmon. Knowing it was our anniversary, Spencer's made it special with a personalized welcome and congratulations card at our table and a complimentary dessert to wrap up the evening.
The service was exceptional. Our server was Raul. The food was delicious, and we didn’t have to wait long to get it. Service was not rushed. An all around pleasant evening.
Friendly and prepared! They had a very cute HAPPY BIRTHDAY “card” printed for the occasion and a cute dessert!
This place is a Palm Springs treasure -- the service, the food, the setting are all top-notch. Come at lunch for all it offers at remarkable prices -- best value in the valley.
Food was good. We were there for dinner. My husband's short ribs were quite dry which detracted from their taste. We sat outside and it was just REALLY warm. They have no outdoor misters or fans so we were pretty uncomfortable in the September heat. We have eaten here many times for breakfast and I prefer that menu and ambiance to the dinner experience.
Always exceptional. My favorite in Palm Springs.
An okay breakfast. The usual fare. For some reason, even though we were the first to be seated in the room and our order taken, we were the last to be served by a significant margin. Nice setting. But was disappointed by the food.
Excellent setting in the patio for dinner on a very hot night. We had a wonderful time, great service and food.
Very nice restaurant, a bit over priced for what you get, a great restaurant for a special occasion
Server has a very difficult time getting food and drink orders correct. Had to flag others down for service and finally had to take the check and pay at the counter.
Spencer’s as usual did not disappoint:. We had a late Sunday brunch reservation and were seated immediately, no waiting.
Everyone loved their food (frittata, steak and shortribs), the meat eaters raved about their selection! Loved the fact that they ask to vaccination record and all staff had masks!
Terrible. I have gone three times recently to order huevos rancheros and every time a different excuse. Lazy cooks. It’s on the menu only a certain days and for a limited time period.
After my partner ate we went to a different restaurant so I may have brunch.
Rarely do we return to the same restaurant twice on a vacation. But we enjoyed the dinner and ambience and excellent service so much on Saturday evening that we returned here for brunch Sunday! We also appreciated very much the host care in checking vac status and the wearing of masks. When one feels safe and comfortable, the whole experience is more enjoyable!
Lovely way to spend my birthday. Loved the ambiance and the service. We chose the prix fix option which offered us great tastes and great value. We will return
Always a wonderful dining experience .. our favorite in the desert
Really appreciate that you had liquor in the drinks and included rolls and potatoes with entrees. Well worth the money!!
The ambiance of the setting and the meal is just always perfect.
The food is so good, the waiters and all other staff are consistently doing whatever to make your visit the best it can be.
It is our favorite place to dine and we have dined at many places thru the years!!!
