Wonderful steaks. Surf and turf was great! Don't miss the corn soufflé and the hollandaise sauce with the surf and turf was the best I've ever had. I got the Au poive addition to my steak and it was good, but I wish I hadn't. I have a feeling the steak itself was wonderful without it. Mashed potatoes were wonderful too. Would go back for sure

IN town for a business trip. The waiter was extremely helpful and not pushy. Recommendations were good but not insistent. We needed to kill a lot of time so spent about 2 hours dining which did not present a problem. The dining room is split into 3 distinct areas which helps lower the noise level, probably even on a busy evening. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience even if at the high end of price.

After having an exceptional dinner two months ago we found this nites meal objectionable as follows; Spencers salad dressing was very tart and drowned out the salad course. The large filet tasted a bit off. The filet while cooked as ordered was served cold.

We absolutely loved our meal tonight! My sister more than enjoyed the bone in rib-eye with smashed garlic potatoes and my vegan squash spaghetti entree, asparagus and truffle fries was amazing! Our cocktails were great and I am still in awe of the sorbet trio - each flavor was homemade and about the size of a tennis ball. The service was fantastic- Dutch was our server and a real pleasure. His suggestions were spot on. Highly recommend!
I come in from out of town often, and always try and have one dinner at Spencer's. Jerry at the bar always seems to know what the best thing to order will be for that evening. And the kitchen always cooks the meat perfectly. I vary my specifications from rare to medium rare to medium and occassionally, "Pittsburgh Rare" and they always nail it. Many other options and great sides, but this is an old-guard (and hence less crowded) place to come for a perfect steak.
Great place to Dine.
My husband enjoyed one night in Salt Lake and thoroughly enjoyed our elegant meal at Spencer. The food was amazing and it was an old fashion and cozy atmosphere, which is inviting once again since most restaurants are going modern. We will defiantly be back.
The steaks were excellent. The oven they used really kept the flavor in and didn't need anything added to it. We also got the Mac and Cheese, which was delicious. That was just the right amount of food for the two of us. The atmosphere was great and it was very quiet. We went at 5:30 pm and it seemed like we had the restaurant to ourselves pretty much.
Overpriced, food is fine, seated beside loud group
My husband and I took a chance on Spencer's as we had never been to the area and were looking for a nice place to get a good steak. I looked at the menu online and it appear to be expensive but not overly extravagant. We made reservations ahead of time through Open Table, which turned out to be unnecessary as it was a weeknight and not very crowded. When we arrived there were only a few tables occupied, yet the hostess seated us right next to a large table with a large with a very loud group. When our server brought our menus he informed us that the steaks were priced a la cart, and therefore, much higher than initially anticipated. The service was just ok, we were overlooked, as his attention was deferred the large group beside us. My salad was the standout, a mixed green salad with balsamic vinaigrette, walnuts, and fresh pears! That being said, the rest of our food was just average, not worth the outrageous bill we ended up with, even though we drank water and shared 1 side. We don't mind paying good money for a nice meal, but this was an average meal, and poor service.

Went for a valentines dinner and have been here before. Everything was as expected, great service, great appetizer, GREAT steaks but the only problem was one of the sides (au gratin potatoes) was very bland and not up to the normal for this restaurant.
Other than that this place is very good
Avoid the Winter Vegetables
The steaks were delicious but they had quite a lot of fat. The winter vegetables were a horrible decision so I would choose any other side than those. We weren't going for the high ticket items or drinks so we were kind of neglected by our server. Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful, but for what I paid, I would have expected a better experience.
