I had heard this was one of Palm Springs' nicest restaurants. I was disappointed by two things: 1.) the tables are packed too closely together. My wife and I did not feel like we could have a conversation without the tables (less than arm's length away) hearing it all. 2.) I observed a large Latino family who were celebrating a... More

We went to Spencer's with 4 friends for our wedding dinner. They treated us like royalty. They made special congratulations inserts for our menus, which will definitely be in the wedding album. They made us a special dessert and really made it an excellent celebration. And the food was fantastic! I really want to go back and check out the... More

I went there on a recommendation. Went for lunch. I liked to eat outside under the huge trees. The wine was completely frozen and the lunch was really good. I thought we could go back for breakfast, but there was not enough time. The staff was also very good. The Coconut cake was excellent!

Although we enjoyed our meal at 'Spencer's' we certainly weren't wowed, the restaurant lacked atmosphere as only a few dinner were eating. The food was good quality however we felt the menu was a bit predictable.

I ate here several years ago for a birthday and anniversary, though I had a drink at the bar there just a few months ago. The patio is absolutely spectacular -- Palm Springs dining at its best. Dining inside at a later date didn't feel nearly as special. The wait staff is also outstanding -- professional waiters, not part-timers. Definitely... More

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge in Palm Springs. As we planned a dinner for my birthday i went to check it out in the afternoon. it seemed very inappropriate to the hostess that I asked to have a look at the menu and the restaurant. When I left she really gave me a very dirty look: However we... More

Our two best friends took us here for brunch today. The setting is awesome and the cocktails and food fantastic. We are gluten and dairy sensitive and they were able to accommodate all of our needs. The gluten free options are extensive! It was so nice to have a regular BLT--it's been so long since I've had a real sand... More

Place looked expensive. Atmosphere and décor was really upscale. Food was great. Presentation beautiful and tasted better. And surprisingly, the portions were substantial. And here's the kicker - it wasn't that expensive, relatively speaking. Kind of took me by surprise. On a business trip but this is absolutely on the list of restaurant I will be taking my wife when... More
