We had a wonderful meal. The steaks are awesome!! Better than any other steaks we have had. The bone filet was excellent. We started with the scallops and then ordered the shoestring fries, mushrooms and squash as sides for our steaks. To end our meal we shared the creme brûlée. Tommy was our waiter and he was excellent. I would... More

Stayed at the doubletree and went to dinner at Spencer's for dinner. I had the beet salad, Sumac crusted salmon and pisco sour beverage. The drink was really good. The bartender went to the kitchen to get fresh eggs for the foam and the drink had the perfect balance of sweet/sour. The beet salad fell short in my eyes. As... More

One of the finest lobster rolls I've ever enjoyed. The aioli with the perfect hint of lemon was amazing. They also offered a diverse and eclectic variety of beers and wines that is certain to lure me back. Excellent and efficient service, just a perfect lunch.

There is nothing better than great food and service combined to create a wonderful experience. Had both lunch and dinner at Spencer's: I confirm this was a great experience. Smile and good service (including sampling wines served by the glass before placing the order) makes this place a serious contender for top ranking in my list. Try the seared Ahi... More

We went here for a business dinner and were not disappointed. Food and service were great, especially the Steaks.

This is a great steakhouse restaurant located at the lobby of the Son José Doubletree Hotel near the airport. The beat salad, crab cakes, steaks and seafood are spectacular. The Dessert menu didn't convince me. It has a separate bar with TVs if you just want to have a good time in order some appetizers.

If price doesn't matter this is a place for an exquisite meal. In the Doubletree Hotel near SJC airport, this restaurant is an easy goto place for a nice biz meal. Good wines and specials. We had salmon tartare, lamb chops, and steak. All very well prepared. The sides were the only slight disappointment, asparagus was decent, and the potatoes... More

First, the food was excellent! Had the Ceasar salad, Halibut with asparagus. Truly delicious. The service was very slow, and had to request a refill. I am sure it was because I was drinking soda vs. Achohol. Very disappointed when this could have been a great.

I couldn't believe how expensive it was! We went for lunch. It was the restraunt at the hotel that was open and thought "why not". If the food had been exquisite I would pay without batting an eye but it wasn't. It felt....pretentious and over priced.
