WOW!!! One of my favorite restaurants ever!!! It was my daughters birthday and we were looking forward to a special dinner. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has a quaint and magical feel. We were seated in the patio area and it was beautiful. Inside my cover of my daughters menu was a Happy Birthday Message for her and we... More

I was staying in Palm Springs by myself and wanted to have a nice dinner. I read about various restaurants online and opted for Spencer's based on reviews. It's a romantic, date-like place. So, I felt out of sorts being by myself. The restaurant does not have a typical big bar you can belly up to like other nice restaurants... More

Returning for a third visit to Spencer's, we were delighted to be seated close to the action, which in this intimate setting was the front-and-center pianist, whose work was a perfect fit with the food and wine (he takes requests, too). We like this restaurant for its ambience -- low lights, banquettes, tables on two levels, the bar close by... More

The second time I had eaten here, I wasn't disappointed. The highlight of tonight's dinner was the Three Onion Soup - crisp and fresh. A wonderful introduction to a delightful evening of fine dining. In a city with many superb restaurants, this one stands out as one of its best. You can't go wrong here.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We always enjoy an evening out where others are dressed appropriately, no baseball caps in site. The food was excellent and the wait staff very attentive. It was busy for a Wednesday night and there was a large party making quite a bit of noise for a fine dining establishment. That was... More

We had an excellent dinner on a Monday night at Spencer's Restaurant. It's nestled just below the mountains in Palm Springs. The décor is what you'd expect in an upscale dining establishment. The dining areas are broken up into several areas and all are done well. The outdoor, or bar area, is extremely well done and a beautiful setting for... More

We stopped here for lunch in our last day in Palm Springs and really wish we had discovered it earlier in the week but we will be back on our next trip. The outdoor patio is really nice and all the heaters make it a lovely experience even on a chilly day. We shared the tomato salad with the fresh... More

We celebrated a birthday here and were so happy we did. Everything about the experience was great. We enjoyed our meals, rack of lamb, duck breast and risotto with shrimp. We shared salads, house and spinach and had a very good bottle of wine. Desserts were sorbet, creme brulee and banana split. The service was great, attentive but not intrusive.... More
