"thought to give them just one last try and it was a total miss -- salty lobster bisque, slow service, no honey for the tea ("runny honey" from the bar, hot watered honey? so weird), shrimp weren't de-veined, just a complete miss all the way around. sorry to see them go but we won't be returning."

"Berkeley through and through. Spengers has been one of my go to places for over 25 years.
Last nights meal hit the spot delicious and so fresh. They also have a great Happy Hour 3-6 daily.

"This was the first time I have been to this iconic restaurant, and the atmosphere was outstanding. The service and ambiance in the restaurant was excellent, and the food was good. We went as part of Berkeley Restaurant Week, but none of our party purchased the prix-fix meal. There is a diverse variety of seafood available, but I think it would be best to stick with the tried and true selections."

"We enjoyed our lunch. However, for some reason the service was backed up in the kitchen.
Although, our nice server kept use apprised of the situation. This is the first time after
eating at Spengers for over thirty years this has happened. We hope this does not happen again, as we would like to go back soon.

"We were a business party of 5 who had made reservations. Everything arrived after prodding. We asked for a second glass of wine with dinner which never arrived. I had to get up from the table to go find the waiter to get our table cleared and to take our dessert order. The manager came over to ask if everything was okay, and I said not really adequate service but that we like Spengers in general. The latter comment seemed enough for him, he nodded, and moved on to the next table.
We are good customers and very disappointed in Spengers- we will take our food and bar tab elsewhere! Owner should look into better management of the staff.

"We have been going to Spenger's before the theatre for the past several months. There has been a change in ownership and the prices have increased, the menu has gotten smaller, and the quality has not been as consistent. It will probably be our last time coming to the restaurant. I asked if any of the fish was wild, was told no, then the server went to the chef and she said the salmon was wild. I ordered it, and when the person came around to see if things were okay I asked him if he thought my salmon was wild. He said no the color was not right for it to be wild. I told him the chef supposedly said it was wild. He said he would go to check with the chef, then he never came back. Another person came around, we told him we were waiting for a response, he told us all of the fish was farmed, and that he would check. He also never came back to our table. I think this is unacceptable, to misrepresent what is offered on the menu. They will not have our business in the future."

"Have been eating at Spenger's for 45 years and it's always great. The transition to McCormick and Schmic's was very well-done by maintaining the memorabilia and the look and made very very few visible major changes.
People at the front desk were great finding me a quiet spot because of the serious hearing loss, and our server was outstanding.
We'll always go back."

"The service was not satisfactory. After being seated, we were not approached by any server for over 20 minutes. Servers were congregated by the bar talking and joking with one another and nobody acknowledged our table until someone resembling a manager walked over to the group and appeared to have told them to get to work. Even after dispersing, our table was still not helped and when a server finally came over, she was unfriendly and had bad attitude, rolling her eyes and acting as if being at work was an inconvenience. Aside from the service, the food was great."
