    As always, a quality experience. I had liver and onions, cooked perfectly. The liver melted in my mouth. My dining companions both had short ribs, which were tender and delicious. If you like iceberg wedge salad, you can't go wrong here.

    As always, we had a wonderful dinner with wonderful service. Seating on the patio is the most enjoyable dining experience in Palm Springs.

    I have been here before. I am always welcomed politely and with a smile from the valets to my table and my waiter. The whole experience is always pleasant and comfortable. I always ask for a pillow for my back as I have arthritis and within seconds, I have one. As I sat at my table and looked around, I only saw one thing I would want my favorite restaurant to look into. The chairs need a new face. Perhaps a new varnish. I will always continue to come here. Thank you Spencers!

    Spencer is exceptional in terms of food and service. I love sitting outside in the patio and it is cooled by misters and airflow. Our server was exceptional in her ability to anticipate and attention to detail.

    My sauteed crab on toast points was a hot mess. My stepdaughter's Maine Lobster omelet was terrible, a pricey inedible. Both the eggs and lobster were overdone and tasted like rubber duck parts. The rolls were flat, boring, cool, and tasteless. Tuna tartare was nothing special but was edible. A cobb salad was thrown together with large unidentifiable white ovals (feta?) All in all, bad food prepared rather carelessly in an iconic setting. The best part was that the valet parking only cost three dollars. Another perk was peeking at the pool area (Palm Springs Tennis Club is on the premises). It's a classic, silhouetted against the backdrop of majestic craggy hills.

    Spensers consistently provides excellent service and outstanding food. Family celebrations are made special; as demonstrated when we celebrated my Pops 96th Birthday on Father's Day. Despited the busy crowd, staff treated us professionally, and we never felt rushed to turn the table. Thank you for making our Family Day special for all.

    We had Sunday brunch for Father's Day. Most delightful. My husband had the waffle with mixed fruit with whipped cream. The waffle was light and fluffy. The Florentine eggs Benedict very tasty Eggs done perfectly. Fingerling potatoes were wonderfully seasoned. Excellent Bloody Mary too.
