I'm not a fan. Food was average. Tables and setting were cramped and spaced in odd hallway walkway type situations. Our server was great and he tried to keep things pleasant. But food temps felt off. Taste reminded me of very average steak house. And I ordered a prime 12oz New York steak!

Everything was perfect, the waiters were great and very polite, helpful. The hostess was most helpful since we got their 45 minutes early and she stated I will seat you instead of waiting in the lounge very nice. Lobster and steak quite good, we shared coconut shrimp, crab cakes, both were excellent. As it was a 43 yr anniversary we made a perfect choice.

Overall great place to eat. We were there several times and the consistent good food was impressive. Our waitress was fabulous ....she remembered our drinks when we came back the second time. The atmosphere was festive for the holidays upcoming.
This is a must visit when in Palm Springs .

Started with prompt Valet Parking and was uphill from there. Sat in the courtyard under the warmth of a heater. The Martini's were perfect and the food exceptional. The portions were substantive and I thought quite reasonably priced. The service was attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend Spencer's when you are in Palm Springs.

Spencers has great ambience. That's its strength. It's tucked away in a residential neighborhood, and has a beautiful patio, dim lighting, and piano music playing in the background. They bring a pretty yummy basket of bread and cheese crisps to start. The French Onion soup is great, as is the wedge salad. The banana cream pie is really good, too. Where they fall short is on the entrees. The best thing I've had there is the New York Strip Steak. Perfectly cooked and well-seasoned. The absolute worst thing I've had was the short ribs. In fact, the short ribs were one of the worst meals I've had anywhere in a long time. It's a bizarre texture, and it's served rolled into a strange round coil. I should have sent it back, but for whatever reason, our waiter was nowhere to be found during dinner, and then someone took away my plate before he ever returned, so he didn't see that I ate about two bites of the meat. The Moroccan chicken was pretty good. As far as Palm Springs dining goes (which I think is pretty bad overall) this place is probably better than most, but definitely avoid the short ribs.

the place was lovely, outdoor area was very nice we had nice table in the courtyard. It started to rain , we sat for a few minutes and it started to rain harder we asked to be moved into the main dining room, hostess was annoyed , said we should stay and it would stop, we had to ask again, hostess was not happy, then moved us to a dark corner of the dining room as punishment. Then service was not great as they could not decide who would be our server.
Food was good but overall service was poor.

Spencer's came highly recommended to us. We had been told how lovely the outdoor dining was, but unfortunately, there was wind and rain when we arrived, so outdoor dining was closed. We were seated inside in an area overlooking the patio and it was very comfortable.
Good attentions to detail on the food - I had the duck, C had the Filet mignon. Everything was cooked to perfection. They also have an extensive wine list. We will be back our next trip to Palm Springs.

Spencers was a restaurant we wanted to check out in Palm Springs, as we were staying at the PS Tennis club. Excellent food, service and entertainment. Surf n Turf, Morracan Chicken and Truffle fries were absolutely Amazing!! Thank You!

My husband and I come to Spencers for our annual trip to Palm Springs to celebrate his birthday. This is our very special treat -- the Service, Food and Music is always superb. Huge thanks to GM Therese, and server Simon for making us feel like family!

The food is exceptional every time we take out of town guests for dinner. Our servers have been most attentive. Special thank you to Simon, again. He's been a delight throughout the years. The wines offered have never been a letdown. Our friends and family members have always been pleasantly surprised by Spencers!

Early Saturday lunch. Staff friendly and timely in taking the order and checking if we needed something. Fish special - trout was excellent... a big portion for lunch. Would order again. Spaghetti Carbonara and Chicken Sandwich were also quite good. Always a fun place to sit outside and enjoying a meal with friends. Will certainly be back.

Spencers (and Tropicale) have been our go-to restaurants in Palm Springs .... either for a casual dinner for the two of us, entertaining guests from out of town, or special occasions. We've never been disappointed.
