Ate both lunch and dinner here, the service and food were excellent. The fact that the owner donates to charity and provides great support to his staff (think a proper wage, insurance) makes me appreciate it even more!! You can just tell the staff really enjoy being there. What an improvement over the drab restaurants and service I experience at... More

+We had a great breakfast-- got there before they started handing out buzzers. Service was fast and friendly. I had the eggs and potato pancakes. Very relish!!

Did a quick TA search for a restaurant upon arrival in Palm Springs for the weekend. Tucked against the historic Tennis Club, you will pretty much need the valet parking, but it is only $3. The lobster potsticker appetizer was tasty, and our cocktails well made. My wife had Spagettini Carbonara, which is one of her favorites, and this met... More

Patio has fire pit, & lots of twinkling lights. The food was outstanding but limited to 6 or so choices. This was a very busy restaurant so needed reservations months ahead for Thanksgiving Dinner. Extremely well run & efficient for such a busy time. Fish with nut coating was a bit salty but Duck & Beef were outstanding. Crab cakes... More

Could not get a reservation pre thanksgiving so tried after! Enjoyed our meal. Wife had a different entree, I did the 38 dollar fixed price. Onion soup excellent, shrimp and chicken puttanesca was good but I had to get red pepper flakes to give it that certain bite. Chocolate pot de creme was excellent. Service well done.

This is an annual visit for us. We are walking distance from our Inn. We make sure to have a reservation for Saturday night. Chic, romantic atmosphere, fabulous food. We are never disappointed!

My spouse and I attended a hosted birthday luncheon for a friend of ours over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I wasn't familiar with the location and was very pleasantly surprised at both the food and service. The restaurant is adjacent to the tennis courts. This is all part of a larger country club. Very reasonably priced valet parking as well.

I guess Palm Springs isn't really known for food. My wife and I came for a long weekend getaway and we had trouble finding restaurant recommendations since she was a vegetarian. All we wanted was to have a nice dinner somewhere, which is easy back in L.A. We stumbled upon Spencer's and decided to try it out. So glad we... More
