Food was perfect. We were celebrating my husband's birthday in a quiet booth. Wait staff attentive. Would recommend to anyone looking for a special meal. It is pricey as everything is a la carte, so be prepared. Two fresh and delicious salads, warm rolls & butter, 2 fillets grilled exactly to medium rare (the way we ordered them), potatoes gratin to share, under $150. With a $30 tip, still unter $200. A great place for an out-of-the-ordinary evening.

My first time dining at this restaurant.
I was a bit skeptical since it was in a Hilton. However the ambiance was romantic! The menu was incredible and the service was impeccable. I honestly was so impressed!! The food was amazing!! Highly recommend!!!!

We've been to this restaurant so many times and watched it quietly evolve over the years. The steaks are always wonderful and hard to pass up, but the rest of the food is also really exceptional, right down to the lovely tomato bisque, which is made with herbs and honey they grow themselves. The wine menu is huge, the drinks are always spot on, and it's the best place in town for a quiet dinner to catch up with a friend.

The only thing we didn't care for was the dessert, which was kind of big and gooey and not special. They do have good creme caramel, though.

I didn't enjoy the food this time at all. My family felt a little disappointed too. I want to mention that the French Onion soup had maybe 10 pieces of onion in the broth. It really was just broth. The taco appetizers were very bland, the mashed potatoes not too great, and the steaks were just alright. Not what I usually get from this restaraunt.

My girlfriend and I got the Wagyu steak meal. The steak was delicious but it was only served with French fries which was a bit of a disappointment. The restaurant itself was super nice and beautiful and the waiter was really friendly and helpful. I would recommend getting a different meal is all.

We were celebrating our daughter’s college graduation. We’ve not been to Spencer’s since pre-covid and were excited to go back. Unfortunately, the food was just fine. Not as good as the bill proved it should have been.

I do want to point out the service we received from our server, Jessica, however. She was outstanding and her efforts went above and beyond. If the food was as good as the service we received, Spencer’s would be a home run. Not quite there yet.

Our first impression was very positive....a young lady gave us menus and water and took our order. We never saw her again! The salad with bread and butter arrived with one of the waiters, and was a delicious salad. There was no salt or pepper and we couldn’t find anyone to flag down for some. My companion got up and found some. We had ordered the 14oz Rib Eyes and a waiter delivered these....we never saw him again! The steaks were excellent, perfectly seasoned and cooked.

There was never a check on us by the various waiters, we had to go and find someone and ask that they refill or water glasses. The restaurant was not busy.
Close to us there was a table of six, then later a table of four business men. And their service was fantastic; we wish we had that server

Would we return? Debatable. The food was excellent, the service non-existent. The kitchen did an excellent job.

The waiter took too long to attend to us. He is a nice guy but we didn't think we mattered.
The people around us was load and made it noise.
The food was very good and we enjoyed every part of it.

We were excited to try Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops because we were told it was amazing! Our food was good but not great. The atmosphere was nice and the noise level was good. Overall we enjoyed our dinner even though we had to send both plates back because they brought the wrong order the first time and then food wasn’t cooked enough after that, our waiter was great and did his best to make things right.

The service was amazing. I never had to ask for water or more bread. He was on top of it the whole time we were there. Very knowledgeable about the menu, and answered any questions I had. They were also very patient while we decided. The food was great. Over all it was a very nice romantic quiet place for a date or really any occasion.
