At brunch, the service by Eduardo was good; food has always been hit or miss. The best thing is the piano music! The dining room needs to be cleaned up a bit. And the hostesses need to be more friendly. Eaten here many times but it just never gets any better. It was also disappointing that you could not order a smoothie (which is on the menu) because the blender was broken!! Really, buy a new one!! My Mom has swallowing problem and was looking forward to that. I will say the mushroom soup is good! Also to note you cannot order off the breakfast menu at brunch...why not?

Great service and very good food. My husband had the venison which was delicious and I had a mushroom risotto with grilled shrimp. Everything was perfect! The atmosphere is beautiful and I especially enjoy the outdoor dining area. It was very warm but they had misters on and a swamp cooler out doors so it made it nice.

Two visits so far and the food has been outstanding both times as well as the service. I was jealous of someone in our party that orders the Lobster Club Sandwich. It looked out of this world. This is a true find worth going to for year to come I'm sure.

Was disappointed in the food as I've been there many times but the service was great from everyone. Won't order the Gazpacho with Lobster ever again....I prefer a chunkier version with Lobster you can actually see instead of tiny bits mixed with some diced cucumber.

Excellent Anniversary dinner. My wife and I were treated to an excellent night out. Manager and staff were extremely hospitable. Food was perfect - Naked Tuna Roll, 3 Onion Soup, and a Bone-In Ribeye with the perfect combination of char and rareness. 3rd time here for a special occasion and it will continue to be high on my list.

We had a GREAT dinning experience at Spencer's . We had another favorite restaurant that we went to for special occasions and thought it was time to try something new. We were greeted by a very welcoming hostess and was seated immediately. Our very friendly waiter then greeted us. In opening the menus I found a very nice Happy Birthday greeting inside (let them know ahead of of time ). He took our drink orders and let us enjoy and take in the perfect setting on the outside patio. The meals were cooked to perfection (NY strip and filet mignon). The deserts were very good also. It is now on our list of favorites!!

Absolutely outstanding in all regards. On a par with the best restaurants we have enjoyed over the years - anywhere. Having recently purchased a home in Rancho Mirage - we have found our "go to" restaurant when friends and family visit.

Our anniversary lunch was made special by delicious and beautifully plated food plus excellent service from Michelle and the wait staff. The calamari appetizer was perfectly fried and coated with just the right amount of sauce. My husband had the crab cake special, and they were some of the best crab cakes I've tasted in years...very little filler and lots of sweet crab meat. I very much enjoyed the grilled soft shell crabs...a treat remembered from my years on the east coast. The apple torte with ice cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce and fresh berries was excellent (included as part of the lunch special) as was the assorted sorbet sundae presented in honor of our special occasion. We look forward to returning to explore more of the menu.

The garden setting even in August was a delight and not too hot as there was a misting spray. Tucked in under the mountain at the end of the street with views of tennis and a pool, the restaurant is one of the best locations for outdoor dining. I had a fabulous halibut and a delightful salad - both were fresh, perfectly prepared and attentively served.

I thought this place was gorgeous however the food and the service did not match my experience there. I paid well over 100$ for two people for a very special occasion and had this booked in advance for this special day. I was unhappy with my food and I could have made it myself a lot better. It was a 2/10 star rating for me. With valet parking and all I expect service to be outstanding but that also did not match. I had a great time but I can say the food should be a lot better. The alcohol drinks tasted like water. For that reason I do not reccomend this place for a special occasion but for a quick cheap lunch I would.

Service at Spencers was excellent. Our server Simon, was friendly and provided excellent service. The restaurant had a great wine menu, and fast bar service. The food was excellent and worth price. All in all you get what you pay for when dining at Spencers. Money well spent.

Our dining experience was very enjoyable, the waitstaff and hostess were very accommodating and attentive. We enjoyed our food and the presentation. If it wasn't for the cicadas the noise level would have been fine. We know you can't control them but they are annoying! Overall we enjoyed our experience and would return. It was also nice to be recognized for our special occasion without any prompting.

Another perfect evening here with close friends...this time TWO birthdays!!! Great food (loved the duck breast!!), wonderful service (thank you, Simon...again!!) and beautiful place for an outdoor dinner...misters make the patio SO comfortable!! We have spent numerous evenings (and lunches!!) at Spencer's...it is outstanding...one of the MANY reasons we live in and love Palm Springs...

We live in Las Vegas, and visit Palm Springs a few times a year. When we do so, we always make a point to eat at Spencer's. The food is always great and we enjoy the ambiance of eating there. We have always had great service at Spencer's--this time it was below the expected standard. However, this will in no way affect our eating again at Spencer's--just a glitz this time out of many, many times of eating there.

This was our second visit to Spencer's to celebrate my wife's birthday, and after our delightful first experience 2 years ago we were really looking forward to this visit. The staff went above and beyond to acknowledge the birthday occasion and the manager took the time to greet us personally and make sure our experience was satisfactory. The food was excellent as we expected from the first visit. My wife had the rack of lamb and I had the filet mignon, both were cooked perfectly with artful presentation. We are always happy to share our best experiences with friends and family and you can be sure we will be back to Spencer's any time we are in Palm Springs.

We had an enjoyable & leisure dinner. Our server did not rush us, and gave us opportunities to enjoy our cocktails, appetizers and entrees. Since our visit was during the off season for Palm Springs we were given added bonuses of summer specials on the menu items, cocktails and entrees

Outstanding service and food, and a beautiful setting makes Spencer a great value. It is one of the best values for fine dining in Palm Springs. Our waiter made great recommendations and gave us service equal to some of best restaurants anywhere!

Classic Palm Springs elegant place for lunch or dinner tucked away off the beaten path. The fixed price menu is wonderful. Buy a bottle of wine and corkage for the second if you bring in your own bottle is no charge.
I was there for a small business gathering and they put us at a table in front of the grand piano. About 30 minutes into our dinner the player sits down and begins his entertainmen. It became difficult to hear each other. I would not accept that table again. Otherwise it was a thoroughly lovely evening. Service is always wonderful. They have valet and I recommend it.

My wife and I had a great time. Our waiter was amazing and gave great advice/recommendations. Live piano was a nice touch/set romantic mood. Cocktails and food were awesome. Will definitely come back when in Palm Springs. Couldn't have been a better evening -- thanks Spencer's!
