Spencer's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
A $100 questionable bottle of wine was immediately replaced with a suggested substitute. The sommelier agreed with us. At the end of the meal the rejected wine was tasted again for our education, and it had a completely different flavor, much better we agreed, but as the sommelier pointed out, we didn't have two hours to wait for it! Excellent.
The favorite place for brunch, and well worth the drive from the East Valley. Good menu brunch prix fixe choices, and the full menu also available. Prices are always reasonable, a great value.
Service is attentive and flexible. For example, adding toast to the prix fixe menu brunch.
The patio is especially lovely with an umbrella of trees and pretty globe lights.
Spencers is one of my very favorite restaurants in the Palm Springs area. I have eaten there on many occasions and it is always excellent. This trip was with friends from FL and everyone’s meal was excellent. Good food, great service and beautiful relaxed elegance ! Can’t wait to go back soon.
Celebrated a big birthday here with my husband. Outdoor patio was beautiful; service was attentive and friendly. They accommodated a request for 1 crab cake instead of 2 for an appetizer. I'm glad they did because it was dry backfin crab; not lump crab. The rack of lamb was fabulous- best ever. And a sumptuous carrot cake was the perfect ending.
They have a beautiful outdoor dining area but my husband likes to eat inside. Our hostess directed us into a large room with only one other couple. She sat us directly next to them.
We should have asked to be moved because we could hear their conversation.
The bread basket had the thinnest Parmesan crackers; they were Great! I had to stop myself from eating all of them. I ordered the iceberg salad but received the Caesar. I like both so enjoyed it. The Crisp-Crust white fish was delicious. The broccolini was done crisp-tender just as I like it. The lemon-butter sauce on the white corn complimented the fish well. The banana cream pie was beautiful to look at but lacking in banana flavor. Cut back on the whipped cream and add banana pudding.
We love going to Spencer’s , especially for a special occasion they put a full page in the menu for your Anniversary or birthday! The food is so good. We had the bone in rib eye steak with the twin lobster tails excellent! Then they gave my husband a birthday dessert, delicious ice cream, fresh berries!
This is one of the best choices for lunch in Palm Springs - if a business lunch ask to be seated away from the piano! Food choices are excellent, patio ambiance although a little noisy if restaurant is full. I always ask for Michelle as she is an excellent server - excellent service, attentive, and makes sure your dining experience is perfect! Pricing is budget friendly....
The patio is lovely and dog friendly so I was able to enjoy my birthday dinner with friends, both 2 and 4 footed. The service was efficient and while it was timely the attitude of the server was somewhat removed so it was not quite as special as it could have been had he been more affable.
The caesar salad was good and would have been better if it were not under dressed.
The fish was tasty and slightly undercooked, as I had requested. It was better than average but not extraordinary.
The birthday dessert, vanilla ice cream with fresh berries and just a small touch of chocolate sauce was a nice touch and could have been much better if the ice cream was creamier, they could have been more generous with the chocolate sauce and it should have been a richer, darker chocolate. That would have taken it to another level of wonderful.
I have eaten here a few times and it has been inconsistent. Sometimes delicious and sometimes disappointing but the setting, both inside and out is lovely.
My friend was flattered that I took her to Spencer's to celebrate her birthday. We had a fabulous time, in an elegant setting, a delicious meal, and great service. Spencer's is running a gift certificate promotion now and we both purchased gift certificates.
You simply can not go wrong at Spencer's.
This is the second time we've eaten at Spencer's. It is an exeptional restaurant both in cuisine and setting. Service staff are excellent in advice and discreet, competent serving. Portions are right. Food quality is as good as it gets would recommend Spencer's for a fine dinner.
We had lunch for business but you can enjoy Spencer's Restaurant for any occasion. It is a classy and cool restaurant. A live piano player will play your favorite music. The decor is contemporary and comfortable. The outside patio is always a popular choice for diners. We prefer inside. Great food and service. Depending on the season they have great creative specials. I had the Cajun shrimp salad with generous portions of shrimp. The salad was gourmet. My husband ordered their classic Cobb salad and he ate every bite. We have been regulars here for years. It won't disappoint!
We were staying at the Palm Springs Tennis Club and thought we would try Spencer's which is right on site. The ambiance was lovely - a bit too dark, but romantic all the same. We had excellent grilled fish with creamed spinach, filet steak, and the pot de crème for dessert. Delicious Italian white wine as well. A nice variety of wine on the list, but all of them are overpriced. We had a bottle of white wine for $50 that you can buy at a restaurant in Italy for $8 and at a restaurant in San Francisco for $18. Otherwise, a very nice experience.
