Spencer’s for breakfast is always pleasant and gracious. The folks who manage and staff the restaurant do a marvelous job of ensuring that all guests are taken care of. The food is predictably good (and the portions generous), and the setting is oh-so gracious. Spencer’s continues to be on our”list of favorites” in the area!
My favorite experience at Spencer's is lunch on the patio under the gigantic trees. The menu has a great variety of choices but I usually get grilled salmon salad. The service is always gracious and efficient. Tucked up against the mountain in Palm Springs, this one is always a real treat.
It was our girlfriends birthday! They were very sweet and had a special note in her menu which made her feel very special. Everything was great, the wait staff was excellent! Went we finished lunch they brought her a nice little surprise dessert and three spoons! All and all well done we’ll definitely be back.
Spencer’s is our favorite Palm Springs Restaurant— The best patio and delicious food ! We never miss an opportunity to dine there when we are in town.
As always, we had a wonderful experience at Spencer's. We were advised at the door that our first choice of table location was going to have a large group within the hour and we chose to sit elsewhere. We were given a seat on the patio that turned out to be even better than than the seat inside. The patio is beautiful and they had the windows open for airflow and the air was on from the air conditioning vents so the temperature was perfect. We had a very good meal - a filet of beef that was very flavorful and cooked as requested and a salmon that was moist and flavorful. The sides and starters were also very good. Service is discreet and attentive.
Returned once again for breakfast on my husband's birthday. So relaxing, good food and service, pleasant people all around. Treat yourself.
Excellent personal service. I had the Maryland soft shell crab ; loved it!,
Both dishes we ordered were overcooked - steak and duck breast. The steak was sent back and the second time was cooked to medium rare as ordered. The duck was very lean not sent back since I didn't explicitly order it medium rare. The duck had no pink and was very chewy.
Spencer’s is always a favorite . Really enjoy the soft shell crabs when in season. There’s nothing cutting edge, just many choices, all reliable. Patio dining is preferable. However it , is beginning to show some wear and could use some updating.Still would always feel comfortable recommending.
Reliably good food and service. Never disappoints.
Always special! Always excellent. Just a really nice place!!!
Mother’s Day, staff were very busy but it’s always good food.
It was all so perfect, from the table to the service to the food. Thank you!!!!
DISAPPOINTED that a restaurant of this caliber would upcharge for a change from mashed potatoes (which was the menu selection) to french fries as it did when my guest made the request.
We have become addicted to breakfast/brunch here. I can’t tear myself away from the corned beef hash with poached eggs & hash browns—- but eventually I will have to, since I am told that the eggs Benedict are phenomenal!
Basically good however I specially asked for my breakfast shredded potatoes to be extra extra well done to burnt and they arrived raw and greasy. Not wanting to make an issue about this on Mother’s Day and have everyone upset I just let it go For me the meal was not enjoyable. I rarely eat potatoes and when I do I would like them to be the way I asked for the first time.
Hadn’t been here for awhile and had a late reservation - 9pm. What a mistake. First the waiters ignored us for 30 minutes, then told us the kitchen was about to close. We said we had been ready to put in our order for 20 minutes. The food was good - not great gourmet cuisine bu very good.
The. It got worse. At about 10:30 we were asked if we wanted to take our bottle of wine home? We said no, we would like to enjoy it at the table (there were 3-5 groups left). Our main waiter had left by now, so the young woman who thought we should finish our wine somewhere else dropped the check by. 3 minutes later she came back and asked if it was “ready for her?” Now I had the hint. I said, do you want us to leave? “No no she replied, and I never saw her again.
We finished our wine and left just before 11 - 2 other tables still there. With a $300 meal for 2, if you all are in such in a hurry to go home, do t take 9pm reservations on a Friday night. Too bad. Won’t be back for quite a while. Bad service.
The service was fantastic. Unfortunately, the atmosphere and food were below average. Our center-cut pork chop was under done and the chicken breast entree was nothing special. We were let to experience the bar noise through a joining window which could have been closed for the dinner crowd. Luckily, our waiter was attentive and tried his best. In total we left feeling that Spencer’s was marketing itself as a high-end dining experience with a weak menu and kitchen.
Took my wife there for an early Mother's Day. Great place and the service was superb!
Great food and service. Soft shell crab was like I used to get back in Maryland...superb!
Had lunch on our wedding anniversary, very busy, glad valet parking was available because the street parking was full. It was a very hot day so we opted for indoor seating. There was an insert in our menu wishing us a happy anniversary and we were given a sundae for desert, nice touches. I had the soft shell crab special which was very garlicky but good. My husband had the lunch meatloaf special, a huge plate of food which he really enjoyed. We would like to go back and sit on the patio which looks lovely.
We always enjoy the patio ambience. Also employees are gems. Such great food and sevice
I would recommend this restaurant for everyone. They go out of their way to make it an enjoyable evening.
it was a great meal. the steak was delicious. thats all i really want to say.
It was a special occasion and we have never been to Spencer's , so many people had told us that it was really great. It was my wife's birthday and also our anniversary so I wanted it to be special. Our server Craig was outstanding and our dinners were great. The wine was exceptional. I'm sure we will be back for another anniversary. Thank You for making it so special.
We have dined here several times over the last few years and always enjoy the well prepared meals. We usually do breakfast or lunch, but this was our 2nd dinner. We try to always engage the wait staff and in doing so we have learned that many have been happily working here for many years. Yesterday we found that three that we talked to had been here 18, 16, and 12 years. Great atmosphere for diners as well as staff. That says something 😀
As delightful as lunch could get. Edwardo was superb and made us feel as we were in his private home. The food come out on time and was almost beyond our expectations. The setting at Spencer's restaurant is as nice as any place in Southern California. It was a warm day in the desert but with the magnificent shade trees and musters, we were as comfortable as if in an air conditioned room.
Always very good.
Lovely meal as usual....will get back when I return to the dessert
Old Palm Springs in a delightfully upbeat setting.
Spencer’s: like no place else, and is the quintessence of knowing you’re in PS, and made the right choice for brunch or lunch.
Akin to having a meal in a movie scene.
We arrived 30 minutes before our table reservation, but no problem, shown to a great table indoors (it was 105F outside).
Food was excellent, we had been told this was the best in the area, and it was, fantastic.
Very nice restaurant with good service and good food
Special occasion with friends not seen in awhile...what better place!! Ate on the patio...charming and beautiful, as usual. Great food (best lamb anywhere), excellent service (thank you, William) and a perfect evening...again! We live in Palm Springs and LOVE this place...often!!!
We celebrated our 30th anniversary their and the outdoor seating is beautiful and romantic with trees shading overhead. When we made the reservation we mentioned that we would be celebrating our anniversary so when we got seated our waiter handed us the menu and each one had a special note of congratulations which we thought was very special. The service we had was top notch and the food was very good and presented with a creative flair. Next time we are in Palm Springs we will definitely go back.
Spencer’s never disappoints! Always excellent. Fair prices and always good food. Just a pleasant place to eat out!!
Ambiance out in the patio was enchanting! The service and the cuisine were wonderful!
The short ribs were tender, the vegetables al dente, and everything else was great👍👍👍
Very nice meal. A good Time was had by all :)
Fried oysters were outstanding! Mud pie outstanding! Steaks range from fair to good. Certainly not the best restaurant in Palm Springs as they claim! Probably the most expensive! Good wine inventory Disappointing— particularly since you are paying over$100 per person!
Perfect venue for a birthday dinner. Great atmosphere, delicious food!
Patio was delightful even on a hot day. It must be the only air conditioned patio in town.
