Arranged a business dinner for 15 people and Spencer's did a great job of accommodating us with a private room, drinks and appetizers for an hour and then a sit down meal. The service was excellent during drinks and then dinner with very attentive staff making sure everyone had anything they needed. Appetizers were creative, very well presented and quite... More

Food was excellent service was a bit on the leisurely side. Prices are moderate to high. A very nice selection of wines by either the bottle or glass. Price of wine was varied but not unreasonable, Restaurant is in the lobby of the DoubleTree so if you are staying there a good choice.

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.
