I came for lunch on a week day with a family member. The view -directly on Lake Ontario- is great, the setting in the restaurant is spacious and bright, with high ceilings and nice architecture. The menu is composed of fresh food, well prepared and tasty; they are accomodating to vary the sides (change veggies for home made fries); variety... More

The location of Spencer’s, right on the lake, dictates that the restaurant had better be good! Well we weren’t disappointed. Spencer’s is a gem on Burlington’s Lakeshore Drive and this accolade may also be applied to its décor and ambiance. The restaurant is inviting and the floor to ceiling glass walls provide unobstructed views of Lake Ontario. We went for... More

There were 3 of us ladies who made a reservation at 830pm on a Friday evening to celebrate our Birthday's. One of us had arrived late, a few minutes to 9pm and was informed by her party that the kitchen closes at 9pm. We were not informed at the time of reservation and felt we should have been. I feel...

I thought the atmosphere and location were very impressive. However, I was not impressed with the service or the food. Prices were a bit on the high side and portions were not satisfactory. This is not a restaurant I would recommend or return to.

This restaurant is all about the ambiance. If you can manage to get a table on the deck or a booth along the windows, you'll enjoy! I have even spent a lovely afternoon meeting an old friend for a glass of wine on the sofas at the end of the deck...wonderful. The food is expensive...someone has to pay for that... More

The view is nice but the food is overpriced and just not that great! I recently brought my sister and her husband (who are from Texas) because I wanted to show them a nice place in Burlington (it's a beautiful building) but to be honest, I was embarrassed! Our server totally crossed over the line of friendly into inappropriate and... More

This is a lovely restaurant with delicious food and great service. Unfortunately it can be very noisy, making it difficult to hear your dinner companions.

The view is big. The flavours are big. The atmosphere is big time. The service is lovely. The wine list is big but manageable. The ticket is waaaaaay big. For very special occasions only and even then seems over the top re price.

I had lunch here with friends on a quiet Monday. The food was very good, I had Chop Salad and they kindly omitted the bacon as I requested. it was made up of a plentiful assortment of vegetables with a lovely tangy dressing. My 2 friends each had the pasta choice for the day, one added shrimp. A glass of... More
