We have eaten at Spencer's 4-5 times, Business, friends and family. The location is great and the food decent until or last visit. The improvements to the menu and service brought the restaurent up to its location level. Well priced, excellent food and service. They could improve their wine offerings however.

Off season with lots of parking and a nice view of the lake. The menu says wood oven pizza but really it is just a gas oven so no real wood taste. The food is actually good

We love the location of Spencer's - overlooking the lake. Sitting out on the patio/balcony is great - but if it's a hot day and you are there for lunch be aware the sun will be beating down on you! Go a little later when the sun has moved around and you will get the shade. Food was really good,... More

Service was excellent and you couldn't get a better view but the food was not so good. I had the Ratatouille and it was terrible. The bread was all wet and squishy and the veggies were like mush. Fries were nice. My husband had the BLT and the bacon was hard and again the toast was mush because of the... More

Reservation was made 2 months earlier for specific seating since there were 9 persons of which 7 were seniors with disabilities. Arrived 10 minutes earlier but our seating was not available. After waiting 20 mins we were offered another location that was not acceptable due to seating issues. Firstly, there were no individuals chairs, bench seating only, secondly there was... More

Went to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were lucky enough to get a table on the patio overlooking the lake. The service was over the top and the food was excellent. Highly recommended for that romantic evening getaway. Check out a play nearby at the performing arts Centre.

Reserved a table 6 weeks earlier asking for a table with a lake view but not on the isle to the bathroom. My husband called 3 days before our visit and specifically asked that we are not seated along the isle to the bathroom. Went last night hoping for a lovely table. We were escorted to our table and where... More

This is one of my favourite restaurant in Burlington, because of the location, the view and ambience. The service is excellent, the food is well prepared and the decoration is modern. I will visit again.

We went for lunch shortly after their renovations and loved the atmosphere. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The wait staff was attentive without being too invasive. Live in Burlington and love being able to dine by the lake without having to fight the traffic to go anywhere else. I would highly recommend this relaxing restaurant to anyone wanting... More

Went for lunch with my daughter. We shared a bottle of wine, a salad and the blt sandwich. The place itself is gorgeous with its new reno's, the food was very good, but more importantly the service was super! They split up our meals so that we didn't have to and they increased the portion size. Not that we needed... More
