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

We had a wonderful time trying several items on the brunch menu. The eggs benedict lived up to my expectations where most places do not. The patio is so charming that I truly felt like I was on vacation. The french onion soup was also wonderful. If I lived in Palm Springs I would make Spencers my go to place... More

I booked a table here before traveling out to California from the east coast. The lady at our hotel, Andalusian Court, also recommended the restaurant. The restaurant is actually part of the club that dates back to the early glamour days of Palm Springs when the stars would come out and frequent the club. We were seated promptly in the... More

Excellent dining on the patio under trees sparking with lights. Magical is the only word to describe this wonderful evening with friends from San Diego to NYC. We had a perfect corner table next to one of several trees. Our server made the evening special by catering to our requests, happiness and excitement as we enjoyed another evening with friends...

There is something special about eating outside at Spencer's with a group of friends. Spencer's is as great as ever. The food was perfect and our waiter did a very good job making us feel like a celebrity.
