Great experience. The food was unbelievable, the drinks were even better. The service was top-notch, we were there to celebrate a birthday and they brought us complimentary glasses of bubbly to start the night off. Pricey because its a higher-end restaurant, but worth it and would definitely come back

When we initially arrived we were placed at a high top by the bar, which I had reserved intentionally. We sat there for some time before being helped, we were given prosecco for waiting, then when the server continued to neglect us so we asked to be moved. The manager was very apologetic and accommodating. We moved to a new section with a server named Jack I believe. Jack was incredible, helped us select some knock out meals and desert. He was friendly, kind and knows how to serve. We were so so impressed with him and our meals. Steak cuts we tender and perfectly cooked. The bread was incredible, fresh, soft and seasoned with salt and rosemary on the crust. The burrata cheese app was also amazing, fresh tomatoes and a perfect medley of flavours. Lastly, the desert was lights out a lemon poppy seed blueberry crumble of sorts, the flavours could not have gone any better together. Flavour explosion and we are chocolate people. We were so impressed. Our best experience at Spencer’s hands down, despite the challenges at the start(which were all handled professionally and timely).
Great night. Thank you!

The place is nice and the view of the lake is beautiful and the service was good as well.

The food was fine, just nothing special unfortunately.

But it was a pleasant evening. Some like music would be nice, as the place could be more romantic if they had some live music and turned the lights down a little bit.

It was disappointing to say the least... My husband and I sat for 30-45min without anyone coming by with menus or water... The food was a let down as they had great ingredients with no flavour... at $6 a shrimp and $7 a scallop you’d think a spice rack would be in the budget! The only redeeming factor was the music playing...

I came here last week with my boyfriend for our anniversary and we were blown away by the incredible experience so much so that we just had to come back! We dined here again with family this week and again, such a wonderful experience. The staff is very kind and welcoming, the atmosphere is quiet and nice, and the food is INCREDIBLE as usual! I definitely recommend.

The reno has made the restaurant nice. Usual case of great view vs food quality. The chicken tagliatelle I had wasnt worth $30. There was no taste even after adding more parmesan. My guests enjoyed their salmon and scallops. $215 pre tip meal for 3 glasses of wine and 3 mains not really good for value imo.

Food average, main course cold.
Music not well put with high end ambience.
Too much hype and money for an average meal.
Server a bit pushy. Attitude change when we left a 50 dollar tip. Very unfortunate.

Food was excellent, our waiter was excellent (we’ve had him before). But he was literally the only waiter we saw in the entire restaurant. A nice manager/lady was trying to help but our poor guy was running off His feet.

Came for lunch celebration with some friends. Servicing is amazing. They didn't have a second umbrella to block out the sun, would have been perfect to enjoy food by waterfront on their patio. They accomodated by moving us indoors into a spacious booth which was really nice still and service was just as attentive despite the fact we were separated from the main crowd. Would definitely come back. Beautiful location and surrounding area to walk around after a meal.

Was a beautiful sunny day...loved the food, exceptional service, great ambiance, and they did a wonderful job applying appropriate social distancing with appropriate PPE...only disappointment was the tables were completely booked outside but had a booth by the window, which was almost as good.

Our reservation was at 7 pm so the dockside view at dinner was quite charming. We chose an inside booth as it was a chilly evening. Our server was very professional and pleasant and his recommendations were quite helpful. A note to the chef, awesome, we will be back for more!!
