We started out with the goal of having our favorite eggs Benedict at Pinocchio's but found them closed. So just wandering, we asked some guys having coffee where we should go. They directed us to Spencer's and we weren't disappointed. We sat out on the patio, which was beautiful, and thoroughly enjoyed the time. The waffle with fresh berries were... More

Luckily for my wife and I, her mother loves Spencer"s and invited us for lunch the last time we visited. We were there for lunch and were seated in the middle of the covered patio. Service was prompt but we made it easy on the waiter by all ordering the Whitefish. I have had this dish before and it is... More

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
