This is a great atmosphere, food and service. The meals were very large and the waiters have the same mantra "do you want to take the rest with you?" The drinks were as over poured as the meals are big. Just a very pleasant environment and a reliable choice.

This is the place for romantic dinners or to celebrate special moments. The garden seating is lovely - the heaters blasting in early December was almost too toasty! The service is attentive, menu is pricey but there's a very affordable prix fixe deal - I had the soup of the day - corn chowder with creme freche - and the... More

Last year we came to Spencer's and it was not a great experience..HOWEVER we back to Spencer's on a rainy December afternoon for lunch. Our waiter Oscar was knowledgable and very pleasant. The food was absolutely delicious. What a pleasure as a celiac to go to a restaurant that can make recommendations and ensure that their guest had a great... More

There no question this is an upscale restaurant that is first class. From the ahi tuna, to the gazpacho, to sea bass, all was excellent. It's on the upper scale of the price scale so brace yourself for the tab. They work to earn it. Service was excellent as was the food. Wonderful atmosphere and right up against the mountain....

On my most recent trip to Palm Springs I enjoyed both lunch and dinner here. We tried the lunch and found it excellent and invited friends to join us for dinner. It was terrific. I don't recall what other the others ordered, but my sea scallops were about the best I've ever tasted. The ambiance was delightful, the hostess a... More

Make reservations if you go on a weekend. Our group shared a big round table in the shady garden on a warm, sunny Saturday morning. The breakfast menu includes all the usual offerings, and judging from the seven meals at our table - it all looked and tasted great. My (less than $10) three eggs, bacon, hash potatoes and toast...

Visited for my fiancee's birthday and we're surprised to see that they read my note when I made the reservation about her birthday and had a special note in her menu. The note was a great touch and the hostess and waiter both wished her a happy birthday; they surely went the extra mile. We ordered the seafood combination appetizer,... More

I am a regular at Spencer's. Most people do not know that they have the best breakfast in Palm Springs. Their eggs are fresh and they have the best sausage and bacon. The breakfast also comes with fruit….but not just any boring fruit. They serve raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple and green melon. My other favorite breakfast to eat... More

Believe it or not, I have been coming to the Palm Springs area for over 50 years. I've been to so many restaurants over that period of time and not many really stand out. This was my first visit to Spencer's and I want to consider making it a regular. The food, service, ambience, and just about everything was superb.
