We love coming to Spencer's when in Palm Springs for the winter months - the food is excellent - service superb - we have recommended it to many friends who come here - and they also love it - one of the many restaurants we love in Palm Springs... We will be back a few more times before we leave for home in April. Thanks for a nice experience every time.

Had a beautiful evening at Spencer’s. Everyone was very nice starting with the valet team. Sitting in the dining room with a live pianist. Very romantic. The patio is beautiful, perfect for warmer weather or someone that can stand outdoors. However they do have heating lamps. I would go back. Very nice experience.

We arrived on a very rainy day and were only 1 of 2 couples that ventured out in this weather. As usual, the service was good and the food prepared correctly. The only downside was the noise from the staff as there was nothing for them to do. It left us somewhat disappointed in that we were the only ones in the restaurant and did not feel the service was as genuine as it usually is.

Atmosphere and ambiance on the patio under the trees and starts was wonderful. Service was excellent. Food was just "okay" with the odd combination of candied walnuts on a traditional wedge salad (?!) . I would recommend for the atmosphere but not for the quality or creativity of the dishes.

The food is terrific (everything was fabulous!) and the service is very good. Everyone is friendly, polite, and helpful. The heat lamps on the patio can be a bit overpowering but they definitely remove the chill from the air and the setting is lovely. Great for special occasions.

I will never go there for lunch again. This is the second time we felt we were being rushed to finish our lunch and get out of there. I don't think it was the wait staffs fault - they were just following instructions. In all fairness, we were invited for dinner last night and it was fine. Four of us had a good (not wonderful) meal and the waiter was pleasant and efficient.

Everything was fine until it took the waiter 30 minutes to give us our bill and I had a 10% discount coupon which the manager would only offer it on one meal when she should’ve taken it off the whole bill made the experience disappointing at the end

Everything about Spencer's is first class - the service, the atmosphere and the food. We particularly enjoyed the piano player and his music. This was our 2nd visit in 2 weeks and we will return on our next visit to Palm Springs!

Spencers is one of the finest restaurants in the Coachella valley. The food is innovative and well portioned servings. The desserts are really unbelievable. Service is second to none.

Designed by Paul Williams, Spencer's is one of our favorite dining spaces, both inside and on the covered patio. Always consistent food and service, though the menu doesn't change except for a daily special. The prix fixe is a great value. We had a noisy table of bachelorettes near us and the hostess discreetly moved us to another room - great service!

Great server and wonderful fare !! We enjoyed sitting outside, but the heat lamps were too hot 🥵
These probably should be better regulated, to better accommodate the diner’s comfort 😍

Great reception at the front desk, efficient and friendly.
Server appeared disheveled and distracted. Big stain down the front of his grey shirt is not what’s expected at Spencers. Food excellent as always. A small suggestion, the rolls are excellent but the butter is always too hard and impossible to spread.
Nothing better than delicious warm bread and equally delicious salted butter, preferably grass fed.

Excellent for lunch. Dinner food quality has been inconsistent (lousy tough ribeye) in the past, but still a good choice when food quality is up to expectations.
