Nice place in Palm Spring!

Thru a chat with a golf shop manager, we found us this nice place for lunch! To visit Palm Spring is not in my plan but just a last minute trip. When we arrived, I haven't had any idea where we should have lunch. The golf shop manager at Indian Canyon Golf Resort suggested us to check out... read more

This is a great place to send the Palm Springs wave. The ambiance and decor were so classy and the live piano music was lovely. Most of the dishes we ordered were well prepared and presented. The wine list was extensive and the menu had attractive choices. However, there were a couple of small details that prevent me from giving... More

Best eggs benedict in town! Great for Sunday brunch! The atmosphere is quaint but comfortable. Always enjoy dining on the cooled patio. Only negative you should be aware of, they do allow dogs for some reason. Still cannot figure that one out as the place is just too small to consider this and is a bit upscale.

This is a place for the wealthy or famous...as can be seen when you walk into a dining area...every head turns to see if you are rich or famous. It was laughable. No doubt the food is excellent...tons of locals...rich locals did I say. Dinner cost my wife and I $160 ...with no drinks...tip included. There is a fixed price... More

We went there for our anniversary. He got the Moroccan chicken and I got the salmon. Both were excellent. Some of the best salmon I've ever had. All of the the staff were very warm and friendly and made us feel welcome. They really went above and beyond for us, especially after a large group sitting at the table next... More

Spencer's is one of Palm Springs best restaurants. The setting and the service is wonderful, The menu and the wait staff are excellent. Food and wine selection is second to none and once you go you will go back.

We loved Spencer's so much in the initial years we dined often. We brought visiting French family members who were most impressed then with a quite wonderful hamburger platter. Brunch with doggie was always fun and gracious. Spencer's has aged and not like fine meats or wines. Their arc is in end game trajectory. It is so hoity toity with... More

A really nice dining option for a weekend getaway to Palm Springs. It is fancy, but not too fancy. We went during the summer season and they had a great prix fixe menu loaded with great options for only $38. The calimari is the best I've ever had and the ambiance was top notch. Bonus points for the valets who... More

We had a wonderful romantic dinner in the patio. Everything was top notch, from the three onion soup (gratinée with gruyere cheese and garlic crouton) and pan roasted Norwegian salmon (sesame crusted salmon on coconut-ginger basmati rice with asparagus, star anise sauce and pineapple relish!), to the New Zealand rack of lamb (mustard-herbs crusted, with gratinée potatoes, green beans and...
