This our last dinner on trip to Palm Springs vacation. This city has a great vibe for food selections and Spencer's did not disappoint us. Great friendly staff and food selections were all delicious. Excellent cocktails in old world form.

Located in a gorgeous setting, nestled into the hills of the desert, Spencer's offers delicious food, lovely service and gorgeous surroundings. Three grandparents and two grandchildren (ages 6 and 10) met another senior couple there for lunch. We sat in the outside patio, warmed by large heaters which seemed to blend into rather than detract from the outside ambiance and... More

A favorite among locals Spencer's Restaurant is located off the main drag in The Palm Springs Tennis Club with lovely outdoor patio seating or more refined indoor dining options. The prices are very reasonable and the French meets Pacific Rim menu items are delicious. Be sure to make reservations as this place is always busy. Also, try avoid being seated... More

We attended a birthday celebration for a friend at Spencer's. Supposedly it was my friend's mom's favorite place to eat in Palm Springs. We thought the FOOD was 'just OK', nothing really that special or outstanding. (We ordered the 'Lite Lunch - 1/2 Sandwich and Soup since it was hosted by my friend's mom and we didn't want to appear... More

Amazing ambiance, varied menu. I had the rigatoni with sausage and creme brulee for dessert. One of the best meals I've ever had.

Loved the ambiance here, this is a do not miss in Palm Springs. The service was great and we could even sit outside on a chilly January night with heat lamps and trees surrounding us.

We had breakfast in December on their patio - overhead heater was on - experiencing the Palm Springs sun - the food was excellent and the service was the best. Eggs were cooked perfectly, they brought us three sausage patties, plus my wife and I both had our own small pot of coffee. Possibly a litter pricier than other breakfast... More

This is an upscale restaurant with nice food as we've been there twice, once with a dinner with my wife and another for a wine tasting event. We enjoyed both times but found the food average and service good. Would I go back, yes I would and if I do I will update this opinion.

Thank Pikelo
