Steak was great. service was ok at best. The main course came 2 minutes after our salad and the appetizer came with the meal. They also brought a wrong side dish. Food was great but for $50 for a steak a la carte, the service needs to be on par with the price. Would not take a customer there. Typically at this type of a restaurant the manager would come by and ask how everything was...that never happened and they were not busy. I would have told the manager but they never asked. I ate at an Olive Garden today for lunch and the manager came by, asked how everything was and even gave me his card.
Spencer’s should give better service than Olive Garden. Step it up!
Oh What a Night! Thank you for a wonderful after theater experience. We went to see the production Jersey Boys. Our experience at Spencer's was the encore act to our evening. The table location, the server (along with service) and the food all excellent! I was there with my best friend/my wife. Thank you
Our server, Kevin, was so helpful and professional. He really made our anniversary feel special. The food was delicious as well.
Food was just okay for being a very expensive restaurant.
Food was good but overpriced. Service was OK and the greeter looked cross the entire time we were there.
Wonderful, attentive waiter! Best steak in Utah!
First time to visit this classic SLC steakhouse. The steak was VERY good, but also quite pricey for just a steak. Everything else on the menu is a la carte', so be prepared for an expensive meal.
Also afterwards I had to ask, but you can get smaller size side dishes which would have been helpful to know ahead of time. As it was I felt we wasted more food than I would have liked.
The service was excellent!
It's a good classic steak restaurant.
Dinner was fabulous, service was excellent and food was fantastic. Had a great meal and enjoy the ambiance.
Good food. Great service
I've had far better steaks at Outback for a third of the cost, the other food items we ordered were good but did not equal their price.
Expensive but worth it. Great steak and sides!
Great Steak Place, been coming here for years, also great ambiance.
The service and food were excellent. The atmosphere is very nice.
Service was excellent and ambiance was great - like an old style New York restaurant. Very classy. The steak and the lamb chops were excellent cuts of meat but WAY too overly salted. For that price, preparation should be perfect. Everything else was very good.
Great steak house! You will not be disappointed. Onion soup was outstanding and strawberry salad was very tasty.
After reading the reviews on open table we wanted to try the wagyu beef. It was as good as we hoped. Very tender perfectly cooked. My younger son and I had the wagyu filet, my older son had the wagyu ribeye. My husband had the buffalo strip steak and he enjoyed it as well. We had the bacon scallops and ahi tuna appetizers.They were delicious. For sides we ordered smashed potatoes, potato au gratin,and burgundy mushrooms. My sons who dont like mushrooms said these mushrooms were delicious! The desserts were also great. The flourless chocolate cake and tuxedo sundae were perfect. My sons enjoyed the mango sorbet so much they had another serving. Service was great. They were very attentive. It was a great evening. We will be back!
Spencer's is one of my favorites! The staff and food are amazing.
Great food, great service, great wine, great atmosphere!
Food was Superb. Service was ...MEH. After being scrunched together at a table for four ALL five of us waited , and waited to be brought water. Or even asked to order a drink. I won't put a clock on it but 18 minutes later we met our waiter and were able to order drinks. another 7 minutes to get those drinks to us on a VERY slow tuesday afternoon. 15 minutes later we could finally put in our food order. I understand the wait time for food from the kitchen. Totally worth that wait. Food was great. But the service at lunch was...well what I expect from the lunch server..MEH.
Service was excellent. Bobbi was very attentive yet respected the fact that we were conducting business. One of my favorite restaurants.
The food was mediocre at best.
Reviews are subjective and jaded.
Great in house hotel restaurant. Found the steaks to be great, our servers engaged with excellent personal service . Will return.
Good steak but expensive.
We finished up a vacation by dining here. The buffalo steak was outstanding, as was the stuffed salmon. The salads were lovely. The wine selection was great. I would recommend to anyone who plans on being in Salt Lake City anytime soon.
The food is amazing cooked to absolute perfection with sauces that taste wonderful.
Great steak great service
I made a reservation for my husbands birthday to celebrate and have a special dinner date while we were staying at the Hilton. Even made note of it in reservations request! Very disappointed! Food was cold when delivered. $350 dinner for 2 wasted! Had to ask for check after no service once food was delivered cold and waited almost 30 minutes only to have our cold dinner packed to go with no one ever checking to see if everything was okay at any point in the evening. Forget dessert or coffee. So disappointed that my plans to make my husbands 50th Birthday were ruined! Should have gone next door to Ruth’s Chris! As a Hilton Honors member, this has been one of the worst experiences I have had in a hotel and it’s accompanying amenities. Salt Lake City is not on a must return list with this experience! Don’t waste your money!
Food is consistently good at Spencer’s. Julio, our server is outstanding...very knowledgeable and nearly anticipates every need. I recommend the wagyu filet and Brussels sprouts. We love having a booth to ourselves on date night. Very quiet and intimate.
Comfortable ambience, excellent food, good service. Perfectly cooked steak!!
Dutch and team had seamless service, no glass was ever empty, our table was served and cleaned efficiently. Well done. Sides were superb, the Brussels sprouts are just outstanding, but all were excellent. Lamb lollipops, superb. Steaks were very good, I don’t compare to Gibson’s, Lugers etc, but they are very good.
Had reservation for 5,we had a sudden 6th, and even late 7 th person, they were very accommodating.
Overall, would absolutely return, our second time, and we’ll be back!
Bartender too busy, to keep track of bar. Not her fault she was running her butt of and doing the best job any human could do. Steak was good not great. Noise level was too much for the price and feel of the place. Asparagus was not cooked and cold. That is the only complaint on food the rest was average to good.
Overall was really good. Very pricy but good fosd and better service.
Food and service was excellent. Ten stars all around.
We made reservations for Spencer's based on the reviews we read. When we arrived it took 30 minutes past our reservation to seat us and when we sat down (7:30 on a Saturday) they told us they were out of filet and strip... the 2 major steaks any steak house should have available on a Saturday night. I tried to get our waiters attention to let him know that we were going to be going (I thought it was the polite thing to do) but he wouldn't return to our table so we had to walk out. We spoke with the receptionist who was very apologetic. We ended up next door at Ruth's Chris, a steak house that was not out of steaks on a Saturday night. We will not be going back to Spencers.
Food was just warm, not hot. Lamb chops too salty, fries came out after the rest of the food was served. Slow service, steaks were not done to the request of the patrons. Our expectations were higher based on having been twice before and the overall cost of dining there. Will not be back and will not recommend either. Very mediocre
Steak was somewhat cold. It was overpriced for what you get. If I’m going to pay that much; Ruth’s Chris is way better quality.
The service was stellar, as always. Even though we’d had to change our reservation twice because of travel delays, Spencer’s was more than accommodating and helped make our (belated) anniversary celebration an occasion to remember. The special dessert created just for us by the chef was the perfect finale to our evening.
Great all around.
Great waygu filet.
Food was delicious outstanding service!
Would definitely go again
