Food was good. We were there for dinner. My husband's short ribs were quite dry which detracted from their taste. We sat outside and it was just REALLY warm. They have no outdoor misters or fans so we were pretty uncomfortable in the September heat. We have eaten here many times for breakfast and I prefer that menu and ambiance to the dinner experience.

An okay breakfast. The usual fare. For some reason, even though we were the first to be seated in the room and our order taken, we were the last to be served by a significant margin. Nice setting. But was disappointed by the food.

Server has a very difficult time getting food and drink orders correct. Had to flag others down for service and finally had to take the check and pay at the counter.

Spencer’s as usual did not disappoint:. We had a late Sunday brunch reservation and were seated immediately, no waiting.
Everyone loved their food (frittata, steak and shortribs), the meat eaters raved about their selection! Loved the fact that they ask to vaccination record and all staff had masks!

Terrible. I have gone three times recently to order huevos rancheros and every time a different excuse. Lazy cooks. It’s on the menu only a certain days and for a limited time period.

After my partner ate we went to a different restaurant so I may have brunch.

Rarely do we return to the same restaurant twice on a vacation. But we enjoyed the dinner and ambience and excellent service so much on Saturday evening that we returned here for brunch Sunday! We also appreciated very much the host care in checking vac status and the wearing of masks. When one feels safe and comfortable, the whole experience is more enjoyable!

Yet again Spencer’s comes up with a great experience. I have yet to have any bad experiences at this establishment. This was probably our 10th visit for both lunch and dinner. It is probably one of my favourite restaurants from around the world. (I live in Sydney and come from Scotland so have wide experience of restaurant food and ambiance.)

Had a lovely meal on the outdoor (air-conditioned) patio at Spencer's last night! The patio is one of our favorite places in Palm Springs. We had the prix-fixe dinner menu which is excellent value. Enjoyed the 3-onion soup and salmon; while my partner had a ceasar salad and crispy white fish. Was really good. Thanks again Spencer's, we look forward to the next time!

Bar service was great but when we moved to our table it went a bit downhill. Server was either inexperienced or distracted. Tables around us seemed to have similar experience. Food was very average. Have been there two other times and this was not up to par.

Very friendly and polite staff. Food is wonderful with choices for everyone. Great wine. Not cheap but fair for the quality. We missed the piano player. Hopefully
he'll be back.

Had an excellent meal in beautiful ambience. Don’t be shy in ordering the caviar. It is quite an experience. The actual entrées are very healthy portions and you don’t need to add extra sides if you don’t want to. The dinner is cost very nicely so that you have time to breathe and converse. The drinks are also excellent- I would recommend the Manhattan.
