Loved it! First time here and will definitely be back, I had the duck breast and my wife enjoyed the salmon. Both very good! The Spencer’s au gratin potatoes are a must try.

Came with my husband and we were seated promptly host was very nice as she lead us to the table. Our server was okay he was courteous but did not go over any of the specials. We realized they had specials when he let the Caucasian ladies that were sitting next to us know. So yea interesting...

Food was excellent! I have to say that their BOH is great! We ordered the Kung pao Calamari and it came out within 2 minutes. I had a wedge salad and my husband had their soup of the day. For entrees I had the Ribeye which was good had good flavor and was cooked perfectly. Hubby had the salmon which he also enjoyed. Great ticket time from their kitchen.

Dessert was banana cream pie and ice cream. Both were okay.


Overall it was good

We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Spencer’s and it was a lovely experience. Excellent food and ambiance. He had his favorite, rack of lamb. Portions of all entree’s are generous abundance include potatoes and vegetables so no need to order additional sides. Our son maintains a vegan and gluten-free diet and his needs are always met at Spencer’s. They provided a complimentary dessert and Happy Birthday was played by the pianist. Always a pleasure to dine at Spencer’s!

What a fabulous night! We were celebrating a girls get away birthday with old friends from high school. This was our last night and Spencer’s made it memorable. We enjoyed the mushroom soup, lamb, lobster, the filet and of course the lava cake. Everything was fantastic and we could not have been more pleased. We will be back.

Always love to go to Spencer’s, the patio is a favorite. Food is always good & staff very professional & friendly. Service was a bit slow this time but the waiter may have just been giving us plenty of time to visit.

Always our GO TO place in Palm Springs for a special occasion dinner. The service is the BEST and the food choices are varied with a Price Fix menu; a very good value. Met some friends for a drink before dinner, not realizing the Bar is a small actual Bar (4 stools), but the area with tables is a cocktail area so it worked out...AND we got our favorite table!

Never been to this establishment and we can here last Saturday night for our 1st Anniversary! We were treated like royalty. Every detail from when we were walking in until the time of walking out was amazing! Getting the best seat in the house To complimentary dessert, even opening the menu seeing a wonderful memo ( we got to keep). The pianist , host, manager and our server were outstanding. Oh the food WOW!!! We are coming here again!!!’

We decided it was too hot to have lunch outside (it probably would have been okay), so we asked for a table for five in the main room (the smaller glassed-in room being a little noisy), but conversation was still a little difficult with the piano being a bit distracting. We have long said that Spencer’s serves the best hamburgers in the Coachella valley and today was proof again for two of us. Two others has Reubens and praised their selection. One more adventuresome friend had Ahi Tuna (delicious and attractively plated) and the entree-size serving of soft-shell crab — which he raved about. Service was attentive yet unobtrusive, the Spencer’s staff being among the best. This happens to have been our second visit in a seven-day period, so that probably says it all right there!

Ambiance was great. Loved the beautiful patio. The wine selection was outstanding, but the food was only mediocre. Steak and fish were both over cooked.

Our local favorite for any meal - even - brunch! The food is always fresh and served to perfection. The dining experience is made more pleasant by welcoming front of house and attentive wait staff. If you live in Palm Springs, CA it is likely that you are already a regular. if you are an out of towner, be sure not to miss the great food and ambience of Spencer's! You won't be disappointed.

Have to say, I was pretty disappointed with Spencer's considering the good reviews I heard.

We came to celebrate a Birthday and they really dropped the ball on this. They usually light a candle and bring a dessert for the Birthday person... we had none of this.

Not to mention, our table-for-2 was tiny. And our waiter did not even present the specials.

I was really expecting more of a warm, hospitable environment.

Would not recommend and will not return.

I love Spencer's for lunch, even if I sit inside. My only complaint is the noise level o a busy day can sometimes be overwhelming. My guest and I often struggled to hear one another. I'm grateful they've got a dedicated following, as I want them to continue to succeed, but sometimes I wish it were my secret hideaway that only a few knew about. :~)
