We were visiting PS with friends, who recommended Spencers. We enjoyed Saturday Brunch on the lovely patio. The food was very good and we will return on our next visit to PS.

Second trip to Spencer's, was there two years ago. We chose outside in the shade, under an umbrella with the mist running, 106 degrees! Waiter told the 3 of us the soup of day, Lentil. We said 3 and I asked him to bring soup now as we looked over the menu. He said " better to take the whole... More

The meal itself was very good. However the service was average at best. Water not refilled and dishes not cleared in a timely manner (staff preoccupied?). Waiter with condescending attitude. Valet parking attendant provided best service and had good sense of humor.

This is a very popular place for both locals and tourists. Great Palm Springs retro atmosphere and really great food. I ordered the Vichyssoise (not on many menu's but should be) which is a cold potato soup and it was outstanding. Also, got the chicken quesadilla and it was very good. Others ordered burgers, which were huge and they said... More

What a treat This place is gorgeous Cuisine is extraordinary Partner and I had liver and onions Hardly what you'd expect to order in an upscale restaurant, but Spencer's presentation made it look like a gourmet offering Crisp table linens, twinkling lights in the trees and great service made this a standput

This is the best kept breakfast secret in town. No more expensive than anywhere else but way better in the food quality. The best benedicts of any restaurant. I love the scotch eggs benedict with smoked salmon. The outdoor patio is charming. Take advantage of the valet parking for only $3.

My husband had the lobsters and couldn't finish them. They were by far the best he has had in quite sometime. I had a steak. So tender and juicy. Didn't need any sauce of any kind. The staff was the best we have ever encountered. This resturant is the only one to go to if your looking for an enjoyable... More

Spencers is a great place for dinner or that special occasion. The food and the service is always excellent, and the staff always very good about explaining the menu choices.

My husband and I love Spencer's for its breakfast (the best corned beef hash in town), for its lunches (try the grilled cheese sandwich with tomato and bacon or the portobello sandwich), and for its dinners (try the liver and onions with bacon in raspberry sauce, the sirloin steak with truffle oil fries, the sole, the salmon, the lamb --...
