Good food but expensive

Convenient if you are staying at the Doubletree. Good Ambience. Good food but somewhat expensive. Limited wine list.

Between facility visits on a business trip we stopped in for lunch even though we had checked out of the Doubletree that morning. We needed a hearty lunch since we had our flight home during the dinner hour. I wasn't expecting much from a hotel steakhouse but the food here is really good. We had the Steakhouse Bleu Cheese (they... More

Just another overpriced hotel restaurant. ambiance is very business person oriented with prices reflective of clients with corporate credit cards. There were so many servers it felt like left didn't know what right was doing.food was adequately tasty but nothing imaginative. I think they were trying very hard to please, but it came off as amateurish. Just happened to be... More

Went for a celebratory business lunch, and as there were 8 of we were given a semi-private table sectioned off from the main restaurant by floor to ceiling curtains The food was excellent, cooked to order and waiting time was pretty ok. Compared to other steak houses, the prices are very reasonable and they validate your parking :-) definitely worth... More

This is within DoubleTree hotel and it's pretty good! I have several meals there and I am pretty about them - except the price is slightly expensive, but what can you expect from a restaurant in a hotel right? I had Pork Chop and Beef Cheese Melt, both are pretty awesome - oh, get their fries ;) Staffs were friendly... More

We had a business dinner with our customers and some executives. We chose Spencer's since most of the party was staying at the hotel, but it turned out to be an excellent experience. The service was excellent, with great advice on the wine menu. The space was key though - we were in a smaller area with heavy curtains around... More

I have eaten here many times and this time it was not very good. The service was abysmal (our waiter was always hard to find) and the wait was interminable. We sat down at 730p and did not get our main course until 9:15. I ordered the black truffle mushroom risotto and there was barely any mushrooms and definitely no... More

Spencer's had all one would expect from a high-end steak house with typical prices. What I appreciated was all of the non-steak choices. I had the lobster ravioli, which was quite good. The service was excellent.

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.
