Another fabulous meal and experience for us at Spencer's. A must visit when staying in Palm Springs, Spencer's never fails to deliver. We love the menu, the classic cocktails and the attentive service. Plus they're dog friendly! Thank you Spencer's for another classic experience.

Excellent service. It was a friends birthday, Spencer’s couldn’t have made it more special.
From the greetings at the desk to our waiter. The prix fixe luncheon was great, flank steak
well done, Salmon with corn risotto outstanding. Key lime pie dessert was very tasty.
Congratulations to Spencer’s for their community contributions and involvement.

Our waiter seemed a little distracted, like he had too many tables to cover. It was quite noisy in the restaurant. The other two enjoyed their meals but I thought the pork chop was very tough. I wouldn't order it again. I was a little disappointed since I usually love it.

Such a wonderful and refreshing experience, with a pleasant staff and affordable breakfasts and lunches. Dinner has a different atmosphere (and prices, though the fixed price menu is a comparative bargain).

Spencer’s is always excellent. Love it for lunch or dinner. I’m addicted to the Ahi Tartare. The ambiance and service are great.

Our waiter, which unfortunately his name escapes me, he’s British, is excellent. We’ve had the pleasure of his service a couple times and this time was no exception. Food is always well prepared and delicious. The dining areas are so pleasant and most magical. Definitely a sophisticated vibe without the pretense. We mentioned to several local friends that we were dining there and they agreed it was a great choice. Thank you.

I am a Spencer's fan, but this meal was truly disappointing. I had the special: Lobster Bisque, Crab cakes with caesar salad and desert. The soup and desert were good-not outstanding- but good. The crab cakes were dry and the salad was not crisp but almost wilted. This meal is not up to Spencer's standards. Michelle, as always provided truly outstanding service

Another one of our favorites. In the evening, it has an "upscale" feel (though very down-to-earth, in many ways). For breakfast, it's a veritable bargain ("nice restaurant" pricing, but quite affordable, with large portions and wonderfully-served). Beautiful surroundings!

This is the second year in a row we went to Spencer’s to celebrate my fathers birthday. It was such a wonderful surprise (for all of us) to see they had taken the initiative to print out a page and put it in my dads menu!! Such a thoughtful gesture to add to the night! Food was delicious as always, waiters and hosts were friendly and ambience was beautiful! We have decided to make it a birthday tradition!

We had a terrific evening meal, great table, our server " Simon " was perfect...the only thing ( it is not unique to your establishment ) was the rude individuals on their cel phones talking and texting...it doesn't bother me as much during the lunch hour but a nice place like Spencer's during dinner is plain bad manners. I hope and pray one day that a restaurant will have the nerve to ask all patrons and especially these inconsiderate people to check their phones with the front desk or just shut them off !!!!

Meh. Sorry to say I think the hype and the history of Spencers is better than the reality. Hardly saw our waitress. Basic food. Nice patio. No rush to go back.

We dined at Spencer’s last Thursday to celebrate my wife’s birthday. They were fully aware of our reservation & celebration. Our table was perfect - outside on patio with plenty of room & suited our pup, Cooper. Our server was outstanding, food perfect, & special birthday desert welcome. As my wife said “a perfect day in all aspects.” We strongly recommend Spencer’s to all!

Exceptional! Fabulous warm decor! Wonderful pianist at the right noise level for diners to enjoy their own conversations.
Liver and bacon, best ever. Dining manager over the top. Best restaurant so far for us in the Palm Springs area.

The steak was excellent, and they let us spit the steak, as is was too large for either of us.
The service is perfect - all the staff are well-trained and competent.

As usual a delightful dining experience. Had an out of town guest plus a local and we three all thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on the patio. You are never disappointed with Spencers which is one reason it is my go-to place when I have company.
