Lovely patio, fabulous meal

Spencers is a fabulous restaurant located in the tennis district. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Prix Fixe selections that are filling and quite good. We thoroughly enjoyed having dinner here. The patio looks out at the tennis courts nearby.

Had a nice romantic , relaxing dinner. The price fixe menu has a great variety and the portions are huge. Very good wine menu with a great variety to choose from. The atmosphere was laid back and not stuffy even with a piano player. Service was relaxed and the staff never rushes you but let's you dictate the pace.

Visited Spencer's during the 4th of July weekend. We had lunch on Friday. The service was wonderful and the menu extensive. I ordered the executive express lunch but don't be fooled by the name. The lunch included a salad, main entree (I selected the grill tuna fillet BLT opened faced sandwich...can I just say...wonderful!) and dessert (the sorbet was really... More

Spencer's is a Palm springs institution, and with good reason. Nestled in the foothills adjacent to the tennis club, the restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic dinner for two on the comfortable patio, or the classy indoor dining area. you can't go wrong with most everything on the menu, but the seafood here is particularly good; sample the...

The lovely patio setting and the amazing, inexpensive breakfasts make this our "Go To Place" whenever we are in Palm Springs. Egg dishes are served with a beautiful fruit platter and a bagel, by attentive, pleasant wait staff. The serene surroundings contribute to a very upscale experience and a wonderful way to start the day.

One of our favorite restaurants. The food is great and the outdoor air conditioned patio is wonderful. The service has always been extremely professional.

It had been a few years since our last visit to Spencer's, and it was always at lunch on the patio. We live at the beach and seem to stay in Palm Desert, so it was a nice change to be in Palm Springs. Our visit was so wonderful. It was a very warm evening so we sat inside. Loved... More

My daughter and I went there for a late lunch and the food was fantastic. I was glad we choose Spencer's and it was so close to where we were staying.
