Attended my friend's wedding venue earlier tonight, gogeous private function environment with fabulous waterfront view. Friendly staff with great service. Highly recommended!

Having eaten at the sister restaurants in Cambridge and Ancaster, we had definite expectations when we booked Spencer's for a birthday celebration. We initially hoped to sit on the patio but the +37C temp. had us opting for the air conditioned, and rather noisy dining room. Our evening started out nicely with our server Adam appearing to be very personable... More

It was a a very rainy evening but the view of Lake Ontario was still spectacular. We started with sharing the fennel and foie gras sausage stuffed mushrooms. They were good but the sausage stuffing was like any other sausage. The foie gras element was not particularly evident. For my main I had the smaller chilled seafood platter. Not much... More

Beautiful restaurant, great views, good service. Was seated quickly. The food was OK, but not worth the price to me. Two entrees, no drinks, no appetizers or dessert. Roughly $100 American. The place was packed, so they are doing something right.

Awful service. Waited so long for the meal to come out, we lost our appetite. By the time meal got to the table it was almost cold. Servers seem lazy and indifferent. But management cares about silly triangle fold on toilet paper to be made in the bathrooms every few minutes, simply ridiculous. I glanced into their kitchen and its... More

I can to Spencer's with a high expectation. Very nice area, looks nice inside, heard some good things, mind you they were said years ago, and it was an anniversary dinner. The restaurant was nice, our table had a lot of dust on it to be honest. Everything looked rushed and not a lot of care put in, but I... More

Booked the Observatory room and it was so beautiful! The food was great, I had the Caesar salad to start, chicken for main and chocolate tart for dessert. All the guests... More

Sat out on the patio looking over the lake so ambience is great. Wait staff were friendly and punctual. If you have a reservation and need to park get there early becasue there is limited parking. Menu was limited but food was good. Prices are high for what you can get.

Thank cflaherty
