Spencer's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We always enjoy a table on the patio for lunch. I always have the Lobster Club except when I have a Caesar Salad and the Mushroom Risotto. Today I went with the Risotto which was disappointingly oily, not warm enough to even melt the cheese and pretty tasteless. I didn't send it back as they were busy and so was I. Next time I'll go back to my favorite sandwich. I enjoyed everything else and so my guest.
Service was fantastic and the onion soup outstanding. I though the Calamari appetizer was a bit over-breaded but it too was fresh. I think it would be a bit better if only dusted with flour before frying. The crab cakes were well cooked and served.
When you decide to put Rock Cornish Game Hen on the menu, let me know!
My one disappointment was that the coffee was not as warm as it has been in the past.
We always come to Spencer's to celebrate our special occasions: birthdays and anniversaries, in particular.
I am very disappointed from last day visit a year ago. The place is getting shabby. The walls are tired and carpet inside looks worn out. The food is nothing special...tired too. I won't be coming back to this place as it's not a winner anymore. Many better places in area. It seems others agree as it was not a sold out house. PS..watch or ask for bar prices as they take advantage if you are shy.
Pork chop was ordered medium rare and was well done. A beautiful piece of Halibut ($40.00) was overcooked more than my pork chop. Locals speak highly of Spencer's. I try and like it. Last night was my 5th and final visit. I have never had a good meal or experience there. Food is always overdone regardless of the category or how it was ordered.
You simply can't miss with time spent at Spencer's! Whether you're looking for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, the food is delicious, presented beautifully, GREAT waitstaff and super friendly and helpful management. You are made to feel special from beginning to end! Love this place!
This place is old and worn, the food was mediocre steak nothing to talk about fish was fair. The dining experience lacked the expectations from the reviews. Silverware had to be sent back. The price point is high and the overall experience not very enjoyable .
We have been to Spencer's many times but this time was to celebrate our son 21st Birthday
For he is shy and not want to draw attention to the fact, all staff from the time we entered to time departed made the most memorabilia eve by acknowledging in a understated way per my request.
For a special occasion or just out-about this is one of the to go's in PS
Who could ask for anything more
Spencer's has been our favorite restaurant in the entire desert for the last 12 years especially for special occasions. Sitting outdoors in the tree lined, air cooled or heated patio is absolutely delightful. We have been there in the middle of summer, the middle of winter, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and we always sit in the patio which is very conducive to good conversation and is always comfortable. The food is excellent and the menu varied and vast. We especially like their Chilean Seabass, filet mignon, braised short ribs and veal chop for dinner. No matter when you go or what you order, you won't be disappointed.
We celebrated a birthday at Spencer's with dinner on 9/8/17. We've enjoyed Spencer's numerous times before, and last night was no exception. Everything was great as usual, and the level of service was impeccable. We are locals who will definitely return and recommend Spencer's to anyone who enjoys excellent food, service and ambience.
Could not believe the quality of the food, the wine list, and the service. We had to bring our two large (well behaved) dogs with us because we could not leave them alone in our timeshare units. We've don it before, but we've never experienced such fine dining in such a beautiful outdoor patio setting like this one. There were plenty of other friendly patrons around us who probably had no idea that Spencer's was dog friendly. In fact when we walked in through the lobby with our two "children" someone coming out remarked with astonishment "This place takes dogs?" If you're looking for an upscale night out with fido do not hesitate to go here. It was the best ever for my wife and I after a whole week of staying in and cooking for ourselves.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We were celebrating some birthday's and they did such an amazing job in personalizing and really make us feel special. The Moroccan Chicken and Salmon were excellent. This is our place when we travel to the Palm Springs area never disappointed.
First time in Palm Springs and received recommendation from a local person in Palm Springs. Spencer's did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and courteous. Our meal was excellent and the cocktails chilled to our liking. Wine menu offer a very good variety of wines in all price ranges. The restaurant is off the main street and tucked back in a neighborhood on the side of a mountain. Great get away and wonderful piano player.
We were there to celebrate a friends 65th birthday. The table was ready early, piano player was playing and we started our celebration on a wonderful note.
Our waiter was engaging and made the "birthday boy" feel special. In fact, most of the staff would come by and say "Happy Birthday" to him. We never had to ask for refills, our food was delicious and the staff brought out some ice cream with candle to the birthday boy.
Spencer's is a great place to go for a great meal.
