All Spencer's are good but this one was one of the better ones. Set in the Double Tree Hotel now run by Hilton, close to the airport, it seems like the gathering place for to see and being seen. If you are not on a budget this is the place for great steaks, drunks and service, specially service.

The food and selection is very good, and the ambiance is really nice. Good upscale interior, fire going, jazz music...sets a good mood. The food does not disappoint.

I entertained a large group recently at Spencer's when our first choice was not available. I became a bit leery when i realized it was in a Doubletree Hotel, not known for fine dining restaurants. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. We had a private room for a large party (13 people) and were handled by a team... More

I realize this is a hotel restaurant and the prices go up somewhat accordingly, but this is a Doubletree, not a top tier hotel. I really was disappointed the prices were this high and the food was not even close to par for the price. The Prime Rib was decent in terms of seasoning and flavor but was a sub... More

I'm a San Jose local, and I've gone here for dinner a few times for special occasions or with friends. The food here is fantastic -- my favorite are the steaks, the crab cakes, and the home fries. They also have great cocktails. It's quite pricy, so be prepared for that, but I think it's worth it for special occasions.

Took the family for Christmas Eve dinner. The service was excellent with all wait staff very attentive, responsive, and professional. The food did not make the grade. All four meat dishes were undercooked. My son ordered the Spencer's Cut medium rare, but the steak was raw in the middle and had to be sent back. With the added time, it... More

The salad has home made dressing. I am craving the darn thing. There is a Starbucks close to the restaurant. (inside the hotel). Patrick, the restaurant manager, is a gem. The Bartender staff is pretty great too. The waiters and waitresses who served our party of 43 were professional and super nice.

We were staying at the Doubletree and had traveled for several hours when we arrived. We were tired and just wanted a quick meal. We were seated very quickly but waited over 20 minutes for a wait person to come. She was very nice and explained that they were really busy and it would be a while before our server... More

Had a recent business lunch at Spencer's, 6 people without a reservation. They seated us immediately, provided waters and bread quickly. The rest of the service was SLOW. This might be nice for dinner, but a Tuesday lunchtime should be faster - and don't make us hunt down a server to order, or to request our check! The lunch menu... More
