We had a group of 10 and reservations for a Saturday night, we had 5:30. We bit the bullet and went for it. Although I had seen this restaurant many many times in a million trips to PS I had never been, so I was eager to try it! Upon making reservations we were informed the patio had misters and... More

Daily specials for both seafood as well as "turf" specials. Spectacular environment inside or out matched by the spectacular food. Relaxing piano music. Great for a couple or a group Absolutely...

Spencer's is, to my mind, a special occasion restaurant, but maybe any occasion there is special. The service is exceptional, the environment, indoors or on the patio, a delight. The food is spectacular, as is the wine list, and the sommelier pulled it together for us in a way thatched not break the bank.

Spencers is one of my favorite Palm Springs restaurants. The food is always excellent and the ambiance outstanding.

Wide variety of food. Wonderful atmosphere. Service attentive. Would recommend for a large group of friends. We entertained a group of 8, each and everyone spoke highly of the establishment.

The choices for lunch here are vast. The service lovely, the setting perfect. The vibe really nice. You can have a burger that is out of this world, or a grilled fish lunch . This is always the place to go for a lovely meal, to bring guests, to celebrate an event or just to get out of the house... More

They have great breakfasts at a reasonable price. Take the fruit as your side. It is delicious and very large. The service is great. The outdoor seating is beautiful.
