The wife and I decided to do something untraditional for Thanksgiving and went out to Spencers. The service was outstanding from the moment we walked in til we said good night. David and Rene did a outstanding job of making us feel welcomed and that no matter how much of a newbie we are to ordering from their menu they made it more pleasant of an experience.
The change of tableware was welcomed after each course and the food was outstanding. The Millionaire Bacon was an outstanding appetizer as was the bacon scallops both were very rich and filling.

My wife had the King Salmon and I had the 14oz Ribeye both were cooked to the temperature that we desired. The room a little noise but it was families enjoying the evening.

David did an excellent job of recommending options and cautioned us that kitchen was busy which we didn’t mind we enjoyed each other’s company and the room atmosphere. It was really nice when the room kind of emptied because we could hear the music that was playing and that made the evening complete.

Amazing experience. We are so happy that Spencer's has returned to its former glory. There were a few years there when it was not the best that it could be.

We loved every minute of our dinner on 11/25/21. Our server was amazing, delightful and watched over us and took care of us with exceptional attention.

The food was very good. I especially enjoyed the 50/50 Caesar salad.

Despite this being a hotel restaurant, with the attendant atmosphere, the overall experience was excellent. The food was perfectly cooked, deftly delivered, and the service was impeccable. For those weary of poor service delivered by people who don’t understand how a good dining experience should be managed, this was a breath of fresh air. High praise for both the kitchen and the service staff.

We had a great dinner at Spencer’s! We went for a birthday and the server immediately checked on whose birthday it was. The service was just perfect and the food was excellent. They brought out a special plate w the dessert for the birthday, which was very nice. I would recommend this place to steak lovers who want a very special dinner.

Excellent meal, great server and lovely ambiance. We asked to move to another banquette bc of a loud-er party of 8; no problem; moved immediately. Server was spot-on with making sure we left in time to walk to Ballet West; just a wonderful night. Highly recommend the Paloma cocktail- wonderful (and I was a bartender for a long, long time). We will come back.

Eric our server was incredibly good. His recommendations were spot on and and his service impeccable. The cocktails, wine, appetizers, main course and desserts were served just at the right time. The steaks were perfect as were the other entrees.

This was a great fine dining experience and we were never rushed; always able to enjoy each course and beverage in its own time.

Spencer's clearly is a gem in Salt Lake.

A tad overpriced but our meals were delicious and service was exceptional so worth it to me. We had a steak sandwich and the beef tips. Also enjoyed cocktails and the chocolate mousse cake was fantastic. We will definitely return when back in SLC.

Went to Spencer’s to celebrate the wife’s 50th birthday as a party of 5 and wanted a quality meal. Spencer’s did not disappoint. From the friendly greeting from the hostess to the introduction of our server Hailey who introduced herself and asked if we are celebrating a special occasion. She started us off with the calamari which was fried perfectly and accompanied with lemon, marinara and tarter sauce. Yummy. Secondly, the millionaire’s bacon, if you love bacon you have to try this dish at least once. To top off the appetizers we finished with the cheese and charcuterie board. A perfect blend of artisan cheese and meats with grapes and olives. Divine. For the entree’s Hailey carefully explained the temperature of how the chef is able to cook the steaks as they are cooked in a 1600 degree oven. We ordered one 22 oz. bone in Ribeye cooked med. rare. This cut of meat was cooked with a perfect crispy outside and was nice and red on the inside. So juicy. We also had the 14 oz Ribeye and the New York strip and the chef hit the mark again with two more perfectly cooked steaks. For the seafood lover the King Salmon was the best tasting salmon she had eaten. Cooked Medium and accompanied with an assortment of seasoned vegetables. Will definitely order again. We also ordered a ton of sides, Mac and cheese, mushrooms, broccolini and the garlic smashed potatoes. These portions are huge and fed 5 people with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. Hailey surprised my wife with a birthday dessert that had a variety of sweet goodness. Please don’t call my Dr. Overall we all had an excellent dinner, the atmosphere and vibe is good and will definitely be back.

Expensive yes, but quality and preparation of beef and lamb offerings was superb. If you want an aged marbled ribeye, buttery and tender to the last bite, then your expectation will be met. Ambiance is great with somewhat private settings but can be noisy if a large group is near.
Of the 3 or 4 very good steak houses in city center, it will not be a disappointment if they remain consistent.
