Great ambiance, wonderful food, nice service--indoors or out, this is a great Palm Springs tradition. I love sitting on the patio under the spreading ficus trees. I have breakfast here about once a week, sometimes with company, sometimes after a round of golf at nearby O'Donnell. The eggs benedict (including a gluten free option!) are my favorite meal, and the... More

We love the Eggs Benedict and the outside patio is great. The staff is professional and friendly. Dinners there are also great and the food is always great. The evening 3 course meal is a good deal.

We had dinner at Spencer's Palm Springs this evening. We had a party of eight, which included two toddlers (my children). I know my children (a 3 1/2 year old son and 2 year old daughter) are not perfect, I'm the first to admit it. With that being said, since my son was born we have taken him and now... More

This was my first time at Spencer's, a Palm Springs institution on the restaurant scene. Went with friends for Sunday brunch. Party of 7 was welcomes, seated promptly and menus on the table within seconds. There is a $29 full brunch which looked good and then one can order from the menu. Prices in the $12 to $15 range. My... More

I think Spencer's is by far the best restaurant in the desert for special occasions. The service is very good as is the food.

Great atmosphere and enjoyed the pianist while we were eating dinner. The food was well seasoned and delicious. We purchased a 3 course meal for $38. Plenty of food and the cocktails were only $4, not even happy hour. Only one glitch was that all the power went out for about 5-10 minutes. The staff was very apologetic and made... More

I have eaten at Spencer's many times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Valet parking. It is located at the end of the street so just keep driving until you get there. A varied menu for all times of the day. There are evening specials and a very good brunch on the weekends. A piano player plays in... More

Just had dinner at Spencer's last night and had a very good time. All four of us had wonderful meals and the service was very attentive. The outdoor dining room was wonderful as well. Our friends dining with us from out of town really enjoyed it and said they would recommend it to their friends as well. Wonderful gluten free... More
