Excellent service, friendly servers including delicious food. Really liked a lot carrot-apple soup. It was a daily special. Tasty salmon prosciutto club sandwich will be even better if salmon fillet cut was thinner. Sometimes less food on the plate is better.

We were staying at the Double Tree in San Jose for a conference. Tired at the end of the day, we just wanted to eat in the hotel, and expected the usual so-so experience. Spencers was a revelation. They have an excellent menu (mid to fine dining price wise), very attentive, professional service, and a warm ambiance. Large wine list... More

So this restaurant is located in the Double Tree Hotel and its convenient in many ways. The atmosphere is average at best and the prices are high for what you are getting. Their steaks are average to good and overall the food is fairly mediocre. I ordered sea bass per our servers recommendation and it was literally the WORST fish... More

My husband picked me up from the airport and we decided to dine here (since I was SO full from the airline food -NOT!). We ordered the calamari without all their fru-fru toppings. It was delicious, light and not greasy. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos. I ordered the $20 lobster roll. Their take on it is FAR form that... More

I arrived about 8:00 pm and the restaurant was still open. The staff were exceptional and the meal arrived in a timely manner. Excellent salmon and excellent French onion soup.

I like steaks. I've eaten steaks in San Francisco, Las Vegas and New York City, at cheap places and at expensive places, and cooked them myself. Of all the choices I've explored, Spencer's is the best I've every tried. It's expensive, that's true. But they serve extremely good meat (which is half the battle), they know how to cook it...

Steaks are served ala cart, and the sides are served family style. The food was good and the atmosphere tries for a fine dining experience yet it doesn't quite make its goal. Meal pricing is $25 per entree on up, and sides are $14 on up. Dinner for 2 will run on the low side $90 with no wine, cocktails... More

Had dinner with clients. Best part of the meal was the steak. Restrooms were quite a walk away as the nearest ones in the hotel were being remodelled. Service was at best okay. Ordered a red wine and it needed to be decanted but there was neither the urgency to do so or then the necessary precison to do it... More
