    Spencer’s made my husbands birthday dinner very special. When we were greeted the hostess told him happy birthday and then when seated he was given a happy birthday sign and a lovely dessert after our meal to celebrate. Our dinner was delicious, I highly recommend the 3 onion soup.

    Rafael was our server. He provided exceptional serve. The $29 Prix Fixe was amazing - lobster bisque, soft shell crabs, and a brownie sundae for dessert. Highly recommend Spencer’s! One of my all time favorite restaurants!

    My husbands steak was the weak link. It was not tender. I knew when he left half on the plate. But the onion soup, potatoes, were good. I loved my soft shelled crabs. We will return but I dont think steak will be on his plate.

    Spencer's is a great Palm Springs restaurant - things have changed since Covid and it was not as good as before - menu item prices have gone up seating is limited - we wanted the inside patio but it not available due to a large party - had to eat inside and was dissapointed - love the outdoor patio but it was too hot to sit there
