Four of us dined at Spencers about 2 wks. ago. When I called for reservations, Friday night was booked but we were free to go on Sat. nite. They had room for us at 7:30pm. If you can try another night you might be surprised also. We sat in a corner booth/chairs by the bar. They were great seats. Our... More

We go for lunch every year. Some day I'll order something other than the appetizer tower and surf and turf Benedict. It's hard to vary when it's perfection !

I was fortunate enough to have a lovely brunch with about 20 coworkers. I personally had the eggs Benedict with lox and it was amazing! Everyone thoughly enjoyed their meal and that is saying something with this diverse group.

Our first time to Spencer's was last night, Valentines. We have a tendency to do Happy Hours, but only occasionally fine dining. I just don't eat that much!! When we arrived we were taken to a table that afforded no privacy and actually was a bit somber. No one was talking. We had been asked to be placed outside, but... More

We celebrated Valentine's Day here. It was a prix-fixe menu offering 4 choices. I had the beef filet and my husband had the sea bass. Both were excellent. Betty, our server was super, as was everyone that we came in contact with. We ate on the patio and it was lovely. The atmosphere was upscale and intimate. While expensive, it... More

As all reviews - ambiance is great. We went for a 50th Wedding Anniversary event and discovered that vegetarian menu options are very sparse; only a pasta carbonara entree choice. Their mushroom risotto has chicken stock. Otherwise, a great spinach walnut salad, or a few sides for vegetarian. Hope the chef will put a few vegetarian options on menu. Was... More

Every staff member was so inviting and pleasant. Our waiter was expert on wines and entertaining. We had the Valentines special menu. The duck and also the mushroom soup was fantastic. A slight glitch of an under cooked sea bass was kindly and quickly fixed. The decor is beautiful and I would never miss a chance to go here again.

Wonderful and nostalgic- great for any meal. Lovely outdoor area. Can be for special occasion or just a casual lunch.

Food was very tasty, sat on the patio with three west highland white terriers. Dogs were treated very well with a water dish immediately when we sat down. Really loved the calamari and onion rings. Will be back during our stay, highly recommend this restaurant with or without dogs.

Thank thomsonsquad
