we had a very romantic dinner here. Restaurant was crowded but we never felt rushed. Cocktails were straightforward. My husband loved his steak, I had a shrimp and chicken pasta that was tasty. We shared a tiramisu for dessert that was quite good. The ambiance is very comfortable.

This favorite of ours never fails. Reservations are a must, and don't settle for a table in the walkway to the tennis courts, since the floor is uneven and chairs will wobble! Outdoor seating under the trees comes with ample warmth from the heaters. A broad menu offers choices for everyone and the three-course fixed price is a great dinner... More

Anyone who has kicked around Palm Springs for any length of time has heard of Spencer's restaurant. It's arguably one of the best restaurants in town and has prices to match that reputation. Which is why I have been here all winter long (4 months so far), consider myself a foodie, eat out more than once a week, and yet... More

We ate at this restaurant on two occasions - once for lunch, and again for dinner. On both occasions the staff were most attentive, and the food delicious. On the lunch visit we were late, but the staff took our order and food arrived quickly. My wife had a salad, others in our group had hamburger, soup and sandwich meal,... More

Again this was an outstanding meal. Excellent wine list, this time we picked a Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma. My partner had the smoked Scottish salmon to start, beautiful she said and the quantity was impressive too. A nice touch was that they brought gluten free bread when she mentioned her allergy. For main I had the special ribeye steak with... More

Our waiter was good and the wine good and company were also very good. We all over ordered so pace yourself! We went back next day for breakfast which was also delicious. Bring your wallet because it is not inexpensive but worth it.

Much prefer their weekday breakfast. I eat breakfast here fairly often and was looking forward to their Sunday brunch. Six of us were meeting here for a long over due get together. I was disappointed! I found the menu to be very limited without the ability to vary any of the items. While the benedicts were interesting, what I really... More

Spencers never fails! A Palm Springs icon located at the "Palm Springs Tennis Club" with an atmosphere that is just right. For breakfast, brunch, and lunch, casual outdoor dining with a great menu and reasonable prices. At night the restaurant is just right for that quiet dinner for two. As full time residents in Palm Springs, Spencer's is always in... More

Wanted to check out the tennis and had lunch at Spencer's. Very crowded but a great atmosphere. We split the Cobb Salad $ 5 to split but was plenty of food for lunch.Made reservations for dinner Thursday night. Nice fireplace going , can sit in or out.

Thank Budmanri
