    Fantastic food, drinks and service! We had Black Angus Filet mignon and red wine from France (Margaux). Drank Strawberry Margarita and cava before the meal. The warm chocolate molten cake as dessert was very tasty😁but my husband thought the Tiramisu was a little dry and lacked the taste of Amaretto. We will come back for sure next time we are spending holiday again in PS.

    We had an enjoyable evening out at Spencer’s. The outdoor seating was comfortable. Loved the surroundings, the lights and large trees. Service was great. Antonio was friendly and attentive. Our meals were delicious, choosing Prix Fix which had a large variety of choices. Will definitely be back, again.

    Every thing was great EXCEPT their requirement to show our vaccine cards. This was unexpected and honestly just dumb considering it’s September 2022 and the pandemic is over. We are both vaccinated but didn’t have our cards on us so it took awhile for us to find digital proof. It just created UNNECESSARY stress prior to a lovely dinner. Food was great, service awesome and restaurant is really cool!! The owner needs to wake up and stop living in a world that doesn’t exist currently.

    Spencer’s made my husbands birthday dinner very special. When we were greeted the hostess told him happy birthday and then when seated he was given a happy birthday sign and a lovely dessert after our meal to celebrate. Our dinner was delicious, I highly recommend the 3 onion soup.
