    This is my third time at Spencer’s, even though I do not live in Salt Lake. When I found out we would be in Salt Lake, I couldn’t wait to make reservations!!! It was still amazing and very tasty. Jess did a wonderful job with her helpful suggestions and Louis kept our glasses full. Cannot wait to visit again!

    I haven’t dined at Spencer’s for years and I was hoping for better. The food was just ok for the prices. I think the presentation bothered me the most. The plates looked like they were bought at a garage sale.

    The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Our server Hailey was very accommodating and made our desert request into a birthday extravaganza for my wife's 60th. Once again the food exceeded expectations even though it was not their famed steaks, only a wonderful scallops and shrimp combination!

    I've been to Spencer's many times/yr for the past 10 years. It's always been comparable to Ruth Chris re: service, quality, experience. This visit to Spencer's did not live up to those expectations. The steak (ribeye) was ok, our table was not ready until 15 min after our reservation time, we had 5 guests and were seated at at table that sat 10. All seemed a little lax.

    Went for a birthday dinner celebration with the family and it was AMAZING. The service was perfect, the food was delicious. We started with a charcuterie and and bottle of Conundrum. We all had a variation of steak w/ indulgences and sides. Everything was cooked to perfection. Erik was a fantastic service, provided the best experience. Thank you!

    Great steaks. Solid wine offerings but nothing unusual or unexpected. Very bitter Caesar salad = inedible! What’s that about? Server kept trying to refill my sparkling water with tap - several times. Restaurant seated a very loud group next to us, which was so disappointing on a Monday night (plenty of space - just consolidating for the benefit of staff IMO).

    The meal was excellent. The crème brûlée was just ok. The whole custard was warm, and had an overwhelming vanilla taste. It was an unexpected finish to an otherwise outstanding meal of shrimp appetizer, wedge salad, and lamb chops.

    Went to Spencer’s for something different as we rarely go out for steaks. Waiter (David) was excellent. Started by ordering a Beet and Bramble wry salad. By the name, you would think it had beets. It had two bite size beets to be exact. Description also described it as having kale, but no kale to be found. It also indicates it had blackberries - again, two to be exact. All this for about $15. Sent it back and got the Brussel sprouts side instead. They were pretty good. Ordered medium well beef tips as a main course. The mashed potatoes that came with them were luke warm in some spots, hot in others and downright cold in others. Beef tips came medium rare. Would not go back ever. For the price, I would have expected much better.
