Had lunch by myself ad ordered french onion soup with black and bleu steak salad. The soup was hot, delicious and a sizeable portion. The salad was also very good, with filet cooked perfectly as requested (medium rare). The presentation on the salad was underwhelming, but otherwise well prepared. Service was prompt and curteous.

My ribeye with bone seemed to be a little less weight than mentioned in the menu. Although cooked as ordered, ever other bite seemed to have unchewable grizzle. I turned back the sautéed spinach as it seem to have much more cheese than spinach and the concoction surely wasn't sautéed. Very limited number of half bottle wine selections, so I... More

Nice restaurant inside the Hilton. Food was very nice too. Our rib eye steaks were very tasty. Problem? Those steaks arrive on a plate with absolutely nothing else - no garnish, potatoes, sauce or veg. Asparagus was an extra €13. We had a starter each Calamari was nice too and a good size, the steaks, asparagus, mushrooms, a sauce for... More

This up-up-scale (price wise) steak house is located in the Hilton hotel. When I pay a lot of money for a steak, I expect it to be one of the best I have ever eaten. Sadly, Spencer’s steaks do not meet that criterion. I have had better steaks in a number of steak houses throughout the country and for a... More

I attended a genealogy conference, which was held at the Hilton. Spencer's is located at the Hilton, accessible from the hotel and also from the street. Spencer's is the hotel's room service provider. A bit tired from my trip, I decided to eat dinner in my room. I ordered the parmesan dusted calamari appetizer (among the very, very best fried...

The hostess asked the chef about a gluten free bun and it was there they next day for me to enjoy! I think they should keep them in stock at ALL times as their burger was AMAZING!!! It's rare to get a good burger these days, but this and the potatoes that come with it, were all excellent.

Was it good? Well, yes, but...My rib-eye was far from being medium-rare. It was more towards being medium-well done. I guess that for 45,95$ I can expect perfection. I had a much better rib-eye steak at Longhorn's (maybe I was lucky there that day, I don't know) for a better price. My experience at Ruth's Chris just a few steps... More

Had dinner Friday night with two dear friends. I had excellent lamb chops and the portion and preparation with peppercorn brandy sauce was tasty. Another was going light and had the Caprese salad and it looked tasty. Friend Nancy had the Spencer's Filet 3-way and raved (Prime beef, bison, and Wagu). At the suggestion of Chef James we sampled both... More

Unusually good for a hotel restaurant! Steaks were great - sides fresh and tasty. Other options on the menu available for non-meat eaters. The chocolate ice cream made on the premises is a must!

Have eaten here a few times and it is always consistent. High end prices and the food is a little under par. Large servings but lacks a little bit of imagination in the presentation. However you do not leave hungry and the service is excellent and the food tasty. If you want steak you can't go wrong, if you want... More
