Spencer's Lounge - Delta Vancouver Ratings and Reviews
It's a bar in the Lobby of the Hotel.
Although from the description it sounds as if it is a restaurant in the Hotel, that space actually is only open for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is served in the bar. When we arrived, and said we had a reservation, the host sort of looked at us blankly and said, "uh, we're really busy so you can sit...there...or there (pointing at two empty tables). We actually sat at a different table, that hadn't been cleared yet. The tables were bar height. In the end, the service and the food were very good, just know that you're eating in the bar. The host also tried to make up for the less than enthusiastic welcome by offering a dessert on the house.
We were here for a quick drink on Valentines Day as we were staying at the hotel. The waiter didn't greet us as we stood by the entrance, even though he saw us. He waited until I walked up to him to acknowledge me. After I told he we had a reservation, he just looked at us and said 'okay', then continued to do what he was doing and not showing us to our seat. Another guy behind the bar came by to show us where we could sit. We decided what we were going to get and it took a long time for anyone to come by to take our order, even though they were standing 2 feet behind us. After my boyfriend placed both our drink orders, the first waiter went back to the bar and what I assume was him telling the bartender our order since he started making our drinks shortly after. Though when they was telling the bartender, he had his back turned towards us and whispered a few things and they were chuckling and looked back at us.
Overall, it was a fair experience. The drinks were good, and our waiter at the end who settled our bill was pleasant (different from the previous two and they both left and this guy replaced them). However, the service just completely missed the mark for me. I'm afraid I won't be back unless someone were to take me there for free, and I certainly wouldn't recommend it. It's a shame since the Delta hotel itself is lovely and the staff at the hotel are fantastic.
Dine Out experience @ Spencer's
This restaurant had a very casual ambience (choice to sit at either high stool or lounge type chairs) - not typical restaurant style dining).
Very informal however the staff went above/beyond expectations to make our evening enjoyable.
I ordered Steak-Frites and was somewhat disappointed as the steak was a bit tough and the fries were more like New York (large cut fries) as opposed to the skinny fries normally served with Steak-Frites.
My friend ordered the Salmon with Soba noodles and she thoroughly enjoyed her dish.
Very attentive staff.
Good food but unbelievably slow delivery of food. We were there for 2 1/4 hours waiting and waiting and waiting for them to bring food. We didn't have drinks - they filled up our water glasses twice - toward the end of the meal, we ended up filling up our glasses from a bottle of water on of the teenagers always carries. If at any point they had had come over and explained why things were taking so very very long, it would have been fine. What on earth was going on that night?!?!
