    Same great servers. They are so friendly and remember us all the time. The lamb wasn’t the best I’ve had it was very undercooked. I asked for medium well and it was barely warm. Nobody came to check on the so I just ate it and didn’t wasn’t to complain. We come here at least three to four times per month and will always continue. Just won’t have the lamb.

    Decent meal, but service was pretty horrific. Host stand was especially disorganized. Rare steak was medium well, so order it raw if you don’t want them to over cook it.

    Service was ok but server was very unfriendly. Seemed almost ‘mechanical’ and rushed us. Food was average. Ambience was great with the exception of a bird receiving itself in my husbands shoulder. Waiter never even assisted.

    I my family and friends love Spencers. When we have guests from out of town this is the first eatery that we take them too and by the time they leave they want to go once again for their last meal in Palm Springs. We have been here for 20 years in Palm Springs and Spencers is choice all the time. Great idea about serving breakfast, that is a plus for sure. Thank you for all that Spencers and their staff do.

    We come to Spencer every time we are in town (twice a year). The hostess took us to a table we didn’t want to sit at so she accommodated us at another table with no problem. The waiter was wonderful and the food and ambience just what we expect from Spencer’s. Great restaurant!

    A very enjoyable relaxing time. Spencer's is sort of our go to restaurant in Palm Springs when we want variety, great food, and fantastic service. We arrived about 20 minutes before or reservation and were offered to wait at the bar. Although it has seating at the bar for four, we enjoyed a cocktail with a couple visiting from Seattle. When our table was ready, the receptionist came and showed us to our table. First class service. It only got better after being seated. Our server presented the specials and answered our questions about menu selections. We enjoyed a very relaxed dining experience.
