Lamb is great. My wife claims it is the best she has had. Great evening on the patio. Temperature was perfect but they have fans and heaters for those days that are not so great. Not an inexpensive meal but the food and service were wonderful.

I must have been at some other Spencer's after reading some of the reviews. We had a beautiful dinner and the service was great. We had 2 people who arrived from the airport late to join our foursome. They handled it beautifully . At the top of my list in Palm Springs. I did not find it terribly expensive. The... More

The best thing about this restaurant is that the owner donates all the proceeds of the restaruant to local chairites. the second best thing is that the outdoor patio is a nice plac to have a drink and eat something . however, the food is just average and the prices are really high but it has a very loyal following...

The only thing more tired than the food here are its octogenarian and nonagenarian customers. A young friend asked me if she should host her wedding reception here. I told her it's a real snore and she risked needlessly high costs and hopelessly bored guests. Try something new and interesting like Workshop Kitchen + Bar! I suggested. It's the Old... More

Spencer's is a great place to go for whatever meal you choose. I have had lunch there and also brunch. The patio is a lovely place to dine. But, reservations are a must. Service is great!

In March, 2014, we were treated to dinner by friends celebrating their marriage that day. We ate indoors since the outdoor portion of the restaurant was completely booked. The drinks were very good as was the food. The service was also decent. The ambiance is outstanding, and the pianist was wonderful. However, considering the high prices, nothing was really exceptional... More

There can't be many patios nicer than this one, shaded by old growth trees and spaciously styled with big comfy chairs and crisp table linens. My advice: wait as long as it takes for an outdoor table -- personally, I would not enjoy the dining room. We went for lunch on a Friday with no reservation and were fortunate to... More

My spouse and I were very, very satisfied with both the quality of food preparation and choices that we dined 4 times during the lunch hours while we were staying in Palm Springs. We would like to commend and thank two wonderful waitresses for always doing their jobs so graciously. Thank you, Lindsay and Amanda!!. We also want to pass... More
