Spencer's needs to do better on being friendly instead of making guests feel like it's just all business. I've found in the past that the front of the house can be a little rude; Spencer's is popular so there may be little need to treat guests like guests and less like an inconvenience. I love Spencer's and plan on coming back, so be ready.
Always a great place, but the only draw back is the service is always awful. Still go for the food and ambiance
If you are lucky enough to get Michelle, she is a great waitress and the support staff is good.
Treating a friend for her birthday. The printed enclosure in her menu was a lovely touch. She was thrilled. Your dinner rolls are incredible! My only “complaint “ is that the bacon on my BLT was overdone. Otherwise, outstanding meal.
Lovely patio area with good food and great service. Would def come again
one of the best in Coachella Valley constantly high quality and atmosphere
In year’s past, we have gone for dinner many times. One of my favorites. This year, I went to lunch for the first time and found it even more lovely. Went a total of 3 times for lunch. So lovely. One problem—you must make reservations to eat outside. So plan ahead!
Lovely ambiance and quality experiences as usual!!
This is the very first time that our food was not hot and the eggs weren't cooked the way they were ordered. It wasn't busy, so we aren't sure what happened - but we'll consider it a fluke until we go again.
This was our 3D visit. Busy place. Had a price fixe meal. Took the desert back with us. Yummy🌺🌺my fish was good. Caesar salad great.
This restaurant is in a neighborhood.
DH liked his pasta and sausage dish. His salad was good.
My lobster was cooked perfectly but lacked flavor. Side of potatoes grattin on the cool side.
Our waitress was very nice and efficient.
Waiter seemed to careless if we were attended to or not. Never asked if we wanted another cocktail, practically had to go to the bar to order. Dinner was descent and desserts tasted like them came from the grocery store. Never will we return.
We visited Spencers for our birthdays this past Saturday the 17th. I was looking for a nice restaurant and found a GREAT GEM that we will frequent often. The food was fabulous and the service was wonderful. From the greating when we entered with the special greeting in the menue to our wonderful waitress Michelle. We have been to many nice places for lunch n dinner but the food at Spencers was perfect...tasty, tender,fresh.
Thank you Spencers for a fabulous time.
Just OK. There are so many places that are better in Palm Springs, I would not recommend this place. I ordered Corned Beef Hash which was listed as a house specialty. It was straight out of the can. My wife's pancakes were ok.
We have always considered Spencer’s to be a special-occasion dining experience. We were rather disappointed at this visit. Our welcome was warm and we were promptly seated. Our service was good at first, but the server did not return while we were eating our appetizers to ask how they were (tepid). We had ordered the lobster pot stickers and the calamari. The potstickers were somewhat tough and chewy – not at all tender. There was a generous serving of the calamari, but they were not warm. They were also heavily breaded and sauced. I could have done with a portion that was half the size with a nice light tempura batter and a not-so-cloying sauce. Our server did call the sommelier to the table to give us advice on an unfamiliar wine that interested us. Although it was not on the high end, we were treated attentively & respectfully.
I would give full points to the atmosphere at Spencer’s, but the food quality has significantly declined since our last visit. It’s as if they’re content with the good reputation that they established in the past & are content to rest on their laurels, instead of ensuring that excellent food will keep the customers satisfied.
(We do not live in the area, so this was an annual pilgrimage. Sadly, it is no longer of sufficient value & quality to warrant another visit next time we are in Palm Springs.)
Was lovely to finally get reservations. Sat inside which was fine. Food was delicious
