It’s hard to pick a favorite restaurant, but year after year, Spencer’s Restaurant makes the top five. This year, the locals-only Palm Springs Eats facebook group chose Spencer’s as their hands-down favorite.
So, what is so great about it? For starters, the restaurant is located at the base of the San Jacinto mountain, in a romantic setting with a gorgeous tree-shaded patio and modern romantic interiors.
The food is described as “American with French-Pacific Rim Influence” which is a fancy way to say you will find a good array of dishes with tastes for everyone. The food and service are always impeccable, and while it’s a little more pricey than most, the quality is worth the price and it’s always a memorable experience. We especially like sitting out on the patio when the weather is nice, which is most of the year.
If you want to try it out and spend less money, make a reservation for breakfast or brunch. Their prices are very reasonable at that time, with some items priced comparably to any diner in town.
Regardless of when you go, definitely make a reservation. Spencer’s is very popular with locals and tourists alike and fills up every night.
