We visited for the first time August 16 2014 to celebrate a family event. I ordered a cake through the restaurant for $35 which was delicious and more than enough for everyone. We paid $3.50 for parking but this is due to being on the waterfront - take advantage of the area and go for a walk. I would suggest... More

Extremely limited parking! Waited 20 mins for a spot. Saw about 10 other ppl, as frustrated as me during that time. Service - mostly very poor. Many servers are rude, attitudy, bossy, unprofessional, judgemental, forgetful, unorganized for events & also eat on the job at the bar!!!! Ruined our experience. Food - poor. Can't cater to larger group. Food came... More

Been to this place many times. Each time I go it is a great experience. Winter time is so amazing as you look out at the lake and look below and see all the Ice skaters. It's all the little touches of this restaurant, from them taking your coat at the door to helping you put the coat back on.... More

A group of 4 of us went to Spencer's on the waterfront that came highly recommend by friends and reviews. The restaurant was awesome and we were seated outside on the deck over looking the lake with views of the Skyway bridge. I can't say enough about the atmosphere inside and outside of this restaurant. We were attended to by... More

This is a really nice restaurant location and décor wise. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite make the grade on what it tries to achieve. The service is overly formal and doesn't quite deliver. The food is described eloquently and carries a hefty price tag but also fails to excite. Basically, there is better food around at better prices. But I suppose... More

Three friends and I met midway between our homes, at Spencer's at the Waterfront, for our annual summer lunch. The day was cool, for August, but sitting out on the patio, sheltered from the wind, was absolutely delightful! Our view of the green-space and Lake Ontario was beautiful. We each chose a different entrée and each one was truly delicious.... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in their lakefront dining area. We had to wait a bit to sit outside but it was well worth the wait. They knew it was our anniversary so we were brought complementary glasses of champagne... a nice touch. The food was delicious - starting with the fish ceviche, followed by steaks and... More

The brunch was fabulous with lots of variety but quite pricey. The view is beautiful on a sunny day.

Spencers on the Waterfront is one of our favourite places. We have always been extremely happy with the great food and consistent excellent service from General Manager Stephan McQueen and staff. An added bonus is the spectacular view of Lake Ontario. The upscale patio is extremely popular for romantic dates, business dinners and family celebrations. They even provide blankets when... More

Went there twice last week. Late Saturday afternoon bite w friends and a celebratory weeknight dinner. Food was great. Canadian wines wonderful. Service excellent. The elk burger is yummy and the fries fab. The kale Caesar salad is always a favorite and the salmon was great. Warm olives to start are numerous and delicious. And who can beat that view... More
