Outstanding food and atmosphere. The only complaint was that we made a point to ask the waiter for cold Chardonnay. He brought a hot bottle and did not exchange it for a cold one.

What a fantastic restaurant. The service and the food were perfect. Valet parking made it even better. We would definitely return to this restaurant in the future.

Honestly I was discriminated by an older blonder lady wearing a suit at the front. When I arrived the hosts was super nice until an older lady came up and rudely pointed at my chest and said you need to cover that and had me put my jacket over. I felt super uncomfortable since I never had that happen ever it said to dress casual.This restaurant did not say anything online about dress code. The sign said no bathing suit as I was not wearing that. I was wearing a lace white crop top and high wasted jeans. Besides that the food was amazing and the services was great.

Food and service was very good.. patio dining ambiance great.. had issue with using an American Express gift card however as manager stated that they charge a 20 percent service fee to use a gift card? Never heard of that before...

Special sandabs were perfect, particularly when seranaded by pianist Patrick. Server Michelle always make dining at Spencers a very special occasion. Valet Jaime is the very best, handling the wheelchair and oxygen equipment upon our arrival, escorts us right to and from the table. What a treat! Special desert chocolate cake was outstanding.

We’ve been to Spencer’s many times and this particular visit the service was non existent. The waiter did not greet us for nearly 15 minutes. Then he promptly disappeared while we sat waiting to place our order. When the one hour mark passed we inquired about the food and were told there was a large group that pushed everyone back. Overall very disappointing experience.

At breakfast, had the meatloaf and eggs for the first time. The eggs were perfectly cooked, but the meatloaf was so dry and flavorless that I had to take it home to 'fix it up' and make a sandwich out of it, slathered in mayo and mustard to combat the dryness. Had requested crispy hash browns and they were practically black, and so greasy that the shreds of potato were translucent. The half strawberry sitting on top of an orange slice was at the end of it's life, with brown spots. Inedible. Only bad meal I've had a scores of times eating at Spencers. Our server Michelle is always delightful!

We have been to Spencer's restaurant on many occasions especially the celebratory ones. They have never disappointed us. Their 3 course price fixed dinner is a fabulous value. I had the caesar salad and the white fish. Both perfectly prepared. My wife had the filet mignon. We shared the chocolate mousse that melted in your mouth. Great wine selection at reasonable prices. And the service and atmosphere are both amazing.

We ate here last year during our annual vacation in Palm Springs. It was great. This time was just ok. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was outstanding either. My DC had the Mushroom Risotto which was “bland.” My Chilean Sea Bass was good. We started with the appetizer sampler. Again, pretty good. Our server was present. That’s about all you could say. He wasn’t engaging or attentive, he was just there every once in while. The folks at another one of his tables seemed to be lavished with attention. Overall, it’s clear that there are lots of regulars and the occasional diner isn’t a priority.

It's not a visit to Palm Springs without lunch at Spencer's. There is no place more reliable, pleasurable, quintessentially PS than this gem. And the $20 executive lunch is an amazing value, to boot.

We love Spencer's and recommend it to all of our friends. Not only is the service staff great( to many to mention by name) but the management is wonderful also. The nicest comment paid to us is that they think of us as a member of the Spencer family.
We find Therese, Julieta and Rebecca highly respected members of Spencer's and we think very highly of them. They are appreciated by all.

How can you not love Spencer's?? It is a beautiful and comfortable restaurant set against the mountains in Palm Springs. Tennis players walk through from time to time to play tennis at the adjoining tennis club. The setting, decor and atmosphere is quiet, calming and relaxing. You feel like you're in an exclusive club. Live piano music played by either Patrick or Patrick adds to the ambience. The service is personal and friendly. The food is always beautifully presented and delicious! Whether you sit outside or inside you will enjoy your time at Spencer's. We visited for lunch and had the White fish and the Wild Mushroom Risotto. Their French Rose' is excellent. We always enjoy our time here.
