We had a wonderful brunch at Spencer's at the Mountain. We sat under the beautiful trees gazing up at the mountain. Great service and fabulous food. I recommend the lobster omelette or any of the eggs Benedict topped off with a mimosa.
I've lived here for years and loved Spencer's as a go to spot for dinner for a long time. Not really a breakfast/brunch kind of person. But, we met friends out for brunch and what a lovely experience. Fantastic leisurely service (rare for breakfast meals) and an amazing menu to choose from. Will rethink going out to breakfast/brunch if this is what a nice breakfast/brunch can be!

Spencer's is a gem. Great service, vibrant food and wonderful setting. Palm Springs at its best, a nod to its wonderful past, but very current.
I was recently in Palm Springs on business and searched for best lunch spots. Spencers certainly lived up to it. I had a beautiful Chilean Sea Bass over mashed potatoes and spinach. First started with leek/potato soup with smoked salmon. It was awesome. Enjoyed it with a lovely glass of wine and it was a wonderful lunch! If I had more time, I would have returned. Service was lovely and sat outside to enjoy the beautiful day and people watching. Would go back in a heart beat.

Food was good but with some telling flaws - blue cheese dressing on wedge salad was watered down, Caesar dressing copped out by putting two anchovies on top instead of in the dressing, fish was perfect but late to the meal. Piano music was outstanding, ambience is wonderful. Service last night was slooow.

As always a wonderful experience. The staff is truly outstanding! Terrific attentive service. Not intrusive. Great food! My all time favorite!
Fantastic food and service!
This is a place to have great food and service for a reasonable price considering the quality of the food. Locals and tourists love it.

We were offered inside or outside dinning and given it was a beautiful night, we chose outside. To my surprise, there was a celebratory greeting inside my menu. The staff was very pleasant and the dish I selected was delicious. We were there for our anniversary and at the end of our meal, they brought out a delicious decorated bowl of ice cream with a candle in it. The evening could not have gone better. We will definitely return. They have an inviting Appitizer menu which is an incentive to visit to have drinks and appitizers.

Celebrated a friends birthday at a lovely lunch. Our server was so fun and so nice, we very much appreciated his allowing us to take our time chatting. I had a turkey burger, a couple of ladies had the hamburger and one had a Reuben. All very good! I was good and had fruit instead of the fries I wanted but I snuck a few from the birthday girl. Yum! Everything was fantastic and they even brought out a little dessert treat for the birthday. Excellent experience!

The server was generally abrupt and unfriendly, and was sure quick to give the bill and collect the money. And she never returned with the change just assuming the balance was her tip.

We had excellent service and the food was excellent. I had the filet mignon and I thought it was better than Fleming's. My husband has the prix fix menu for $38 that included a large bowl of soup, the entree and dessert. Their carrot cake was one of the best I have ever had. I said it was a birthday celebration on open dine when I made the reservation and they had a large "Happy Birthday" greeting in my Dad's menu. They also gave him a free dessert. The service was excellent and the price overall was not bad. It was $200 for 4 people with 1 alcoholic drink.
Will definately return
This was my first time and this restaurant and my experience was very positive. I'm not someone who like Valet parking and the street parking was limited so we had to park a bit further away than I would have liked. Upon entering the restaurant I was definitely hit with the wow factor. Sitting out side was really quite nice. However they were very busy and it was hard to hear our guests in conversation even though they were just across the table. I will definitely return.

Have dined here many times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and we have never been disappointed. First, the food quality is high. If you watch their daily deliveries, almost everything from the produce to seafood comes fresh from local purveyors. Secondly, the ambiance is pure Palm Springs...dressy or casual. You're not out of place. (Note-people who still enjoy dressing up in the evening will look a lot classier than you if you show up for dinner in jeans and a T shirt!). Third, the service is usually spot on and not rushed. After dessert, walk over to the ajoining Palm Springs Tennis Club, go in the lobby, and have fun gazing at the large pictures of the old Hollywood crowd who frequented the historic place. It's a great meal out in the best of the real Palm Springs.

This was an anniversary dinner for us and the restaurant and our server did make note of that and provided us with special happy anniversary greetings and a very yummy complimentary dessert in recognition of that. The service was great and the food quality and quantity exceeded our expectations. Will definitely return.
No doubt the best restaurant in Palm Springs.
We visit from Oklahoma each year and this is our absolute most favorite restaurant in town. We try to come to Spencer's at least 5-6 times during the month we're here....and quite frankly I would eat here every night if I could convince my wife!

A Big Hit!
Mother's Day - well...one day short to beat the crowds. Lunch at 2:00 was perfect - almost everyone left and we felt as if all of you were there just to take care of US! And what a great job you did. It really was one of those "special" moments I will remember - everything was perfection. We were seated immediately, in the patio as requested. Outstanding, but unobtrusive server, excellent price point, and beautifully presented food that was to die for. Enjoyed it the second day. The weather could not have been more perfect. We decided if there had been Hawaiin music playing, we would have sworn we were in Hawaii. You really know how to do it just right. It truly was a memorable moment.

Monday thru Saturday one of the best breakfast places in the valley.
Very special experience
This is a wonderful, classic restaurant. The servers are very professional. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. Everything is really delicious. The portions are huge and most patrons seem to take home a "doggy bag" with them as they leave. High quality, fresh ingredients in a wonderful environment. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a special place.
Just pass go, don't collect $200 hurry t Spencers.
What a lovely evening. Everything about Spencer's is fabulous. It truly is an excellent indoor/outdoor setting. Food was superb, lots of nice wines to choose from, attentive and yet not overbearing server. A great place to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. We won't wait for a special occasion to return we'll be back many times.
Beyond Five Stars!!!
We loved every minute of our dining experience at Spencer's. The cuisine, staff, atmosphere and style far exceeds a Five Star restaurant. We give Spencer's Six Stars.

This is a top notch restaurant with high quality cuisine. We love this restaurant and go every time we are in the area.
Always enjoy Spencers
I had out of town guests and they had not been to Spencers in awhile. Their visit was built around a tour of the wonderful Annenberg Estate, Sunnylands. They also wanted a place to meet up with another of their long time friends. The patio at Spencer's was the perfect setting to end our bucolic weekend. It is a lovely setting and the service was excellent. There was an issue with our drink order and I was reluctant to bring it to the attention of the server. One of my guest's insisted and it was handle beautifully and without any discussion. Just the way it should be in every establishment and rarely is anymore. We loved the setting the food and the service. A treat start to finish.
