On a recommendation from "La Maison", we went here for lunch, after being told we would be treated to first class food and linen tablecloth service. I guess the chef cooked for Obama when he was in town. You can tell. I am from the Canadian prairies, where the only scallops we get are frozen. The Spencer's scallops with potato... More

We attended a wedding reception and dinner! The soup was soooo very hot and yummy - cream of mushroom. Not sure how they could keep it so hot for such a large party. I had the sea bass and it was a big piece of fish and very good. Very white and flakey. My husband had the filet and it... More

Everything is there except the magic. I look forward to eating breakfast here for the ambiance, the setting, the fireplace breaking the morning chill, and the food is really good, the waitstaff very competent and helpful. It is a convenience that Spencer's is here, as we often stay at the Tennis Club on our frequent getaways from L.A. Problem is,... More

Went there for Christmas Day. Very good food. Nice surroundings. Felt a bit rushed through, but then I suppose they had a number of sittings. Not unreasonably priced. Would go again.

We met here on the recommendation of a friend which exceeded our expectations. Restaurant is divided in two parts inside and a outdoors patio. We were promptly seated by a very pleasant hostess. Our waiter was a very professional type, not hovering but anticipating our requests. The Cobb salad and fried oysters were an excellent appetizer followed by mains of... More

I was a bit uneasy having breakfast at the tennis club but got over it as soon as we were seated. The outdoor seating was so peaceful and the staff was friendly. My wife had eggs benedict with incredible amounts of salmon. She was quite impressed with all components in the dish. I had corned beef hash which came with... More

This was our first visit to Spencer's but we decided to give them a try based on the recommendation by our realtor and he was spot on. We went for Sunday brunch and arrived just after opening. I can see where parking could be an issue but they do offer valet parking. We chose to sit outside on the patio... More

You can't beat the Palm Springs setting, memories of the movie stars of yesteryear sitting by the pool surrounded by a waterfall, mountains and tennis courts. The food is good and reasonably priced for this area and this town. However we were disappointed in the accuracy - 3 out of 4 orders were wrong and the service wasn't up to... More

Twice we have been seated, luckily, without reservations, and have been thrilled with the food and service of this secluded spot against the mountains in 'old' Palm Springs. Valet parking is well worth the $3 charge. Outdoor seating is like being in your own private tree fort. There can be hummingbirds sparring for the fresh flowers on your table, which... More

Attended the Sunday brunch, enjoyed two items, which we shared. Food was delicious, beautifully presented. The "Butter" Chardonnay was delicious as was the Cappachino. Great food, good value. Lovely live piano music during our meal. We plan to return.
