Spencer's is one of my favorite restaurants in Palm Springs.
Only one hiccup, I ordered calamari which never came, was not charged for it either. Must have been a mix-up with the kitchen, or the order was not placed. All in all, a wonderful evening.

Spencer's is unequaled in the Coachella Valley. It is always pleasant, easy and delicious. Great people watching. I always feel like I am going to a friend's very lovely garden for a breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Very close to Palm Springs Museum of Art, walking streets of Palm Springs and activities and yet nestled in among great quiet shade trees.

We visit Palm Springs two to three times a year from Colorado. Spencer's is our go to restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Fabulous location (ask to dine outdoors). The food is good and consistent. The wait staff is wonderful and seem to really care. We have dined at many referred restaurants in Palm Springs. Spencer's remains our "Happy Place."

VERY disappointed in the good and I dine there often. My duck was dry and boring and the sides very uninteresting. My guests Chilean sea bass was good but again, the sides were boring. Price point is high for what we received. For this reason I am cancelling my Christmas Day reservation.

We love the venue, the outdoor courtyard and the lighting, the black table clothes - the decor is perfect. We really enjoy the 3 course dinner at a fixed price, well worth it!
The food is good, the service was a bit slow but it was peak dinner time. We'll be back...

This was a Sunday brunch with a friend from Canada. Spencer's has a party atmosphere at Sunday brunch and because we have been there many times we know a lot of the staff, many who have been since the opening of the restaurant. Service from Marcellino, Norma and all the staff is uniformly professional and friendly. It is also a good mix of locals and out of town folk.
The prixe fixe brunch menu offers a variety of choices and we seem to always take dessert home with us.

Spent the weekend in Palm Springs with my girlfriend and made reservations here. Showed up 10 minutes early and was seated right away on the patio. It was a gorgeous night and the lighting outside made it feel even better. It was our anniversary and I noted it when I made the reservation. My girlfriend was greeted with a special note in her menu from the restaurant and it made it even more special. Service was spectacular and the food was exceptional. For a higher end restaurant, prices are on par but they had a prix fixe option and was an awesome value and it had what my girlfriend wanted. Totally worth it and recommended. Valet is $3 plus tip and service was very fast.

The food and service is consistently outstanding. It is definitely fine dining but not fussy. There are several dining room options - both inside and outside - make sure to ask about options. Loved the outdoor section we were in Saturday night.

We were celebrating my birthday and Spencer!s is the place to go for a special occasion. We felt welcome upon arrival. We requested and were seated in our favorite booth. The food was excellent. I tried the Dover sole and it was delicious. My son is vegan and never has a problem meeting his needs at Spencer’s.
