Excellent menu choices. I had the Portobello Black Angus Filet, which was prefectly complemented by the sauce, mash & perfectly cooked al-dente broccolli. My wife chose the Duck, again perfectly cooked with a great choice of accompaniments. All in all first class.

We've dined at Spencer's for the past four visits to Palm Springs; usually in July or August. Good ambiance, mature help staff, and they always have soft piano music. This time, however, the food was not the best. We ordered Calamari and it was heavily breaded and a little tough. The salad was OK, and our fillets were cooked to taste. There was just something missing though with the flavors. Maybe a new chef? I would still recommend it.

Wonderful, as always. 105 outside but the shade of the trees and the misters made the outside patio very comfortable.

The atmosphere was great, service was good, nothing special. I had a pasta dish with shrimp and chicken. I did find it very salty, the shrimp was sooo delicious, just not that much. A friend had the meatloaf and said it wasn’t anything special. The other two members of our party had a roast beef dish and it was very tender and quite outstanding. Both of them were very pleased.
We enjoyed the piano player, he took the atmosphere to the next level.

Spencer's is always reliably good! The only comment is the piano player is too loud when sitting inside in the summer!

We really enjoyed our dinner here while visiting Palm Springs! The food was delicious, and the ambiance was great. We even got a free dessert for our anniversary! We will definitely return if we're back in the area.

The food was excellent and the staff were on point. They even went out of their way after our meal to answer our questions about what else we should do around town. We could not have picked a better place for our anniversary.

Failed to live up to our expectations! Primarily due to very poor service. Overall, the food was good, although the sauteed soft shell crab was a little strang with an excess of garlic cloves and a strange sauce. We will return for another try. The restaurant is very pleasant and very conveniently located.

We have frequented this restaurant on many occasions and decided to have a early lunch on our 49th anniversary. Their wonderful menu has been pretty much the same for many years and we have our favorite entrees in mind.
We decided on the Eggs Florentine with roasted potatoes, and the Soup and Sandwich, chicken with their great French Onion soup...oh so good! Of course we had to have their Chardonnay to celebrate...
We usually like to be seated on the patio, however this day was just too warm, even for us seasoned Palm Springers...unfortunately the inside seating can be a little noisy with "chatty" guests!
NOW, we shall go forward on year FIFTY!!!

If you ever visit Palm Springs and want to go to a quintessential restaurant then Spencer's is the one. It is a Palm Springs establishment that keeps getting better with age. Whether inside by the piano or outside in the courtyard you are guaranteed a wonderful atmosphere. The menu is sure to please. I live in Palm Springs and I frequent Spencer's often. 5 Stars!

Spencer's was a bit off the mark (my personal mark) on this visit.
My guest had an excellent steak, and no complaints there.
Our shared appetizer was excellent.
My veal chop was close to flavorless. I specifically chose Spencer's because thee are not very many restaurants featuring veal chop - an extravagance in which I like to indulge from time to time.
So, with expectations high (as I've always had with Sepncer's, and which are usually met) it was a double disappointment.

Lovely ambience inside and on the patio. We sat on the patio and loved it even though it was over 100 degrees that evening, it was very comfortable because of the shade from the trees and the misters. Highly recommend. Piano player also, excellent.

If you want a place for quiet conversation then Spencer’s might not be the place. However quiet is no longer key when the service is excellent and the food is timely and absolutely the best.

We celebrated our anniversary here and we were very happy with everything! I booked thru the website and there were plenty of time slots available (I added in the notes it was our anniversary). The staff made the evening extra special by having a special insert in the menu that said happy anniversary (even got to take it with us) and an extra dessert with a candle. The atmosphere was perfect.
