Overpriced and mediocre steaks. Poor ambiance with a table near the kitchen and customers dressed in t shirts and jeans.

Excellent high end steakhouse, perfect for entertaining important clients. Expensiveness is expected, but was more expensive than it needs to be for similar high end steak houses.

A tad overpriced but our meals were delicious and service was exceptional so worth it to me. We had a steak sandwich and the beef tips. Also enjoyed cocktails and the chocolate mousse cake was fantastic. We will definitely return when back in SLC.

What an amazing staff! I lost my wallet with an important medication and cash in it and the owner and hotel security went above and beyond to help me find it on between the seat and wall!!!!! I will be ever grateful.

Went to Spencer’s to celebrate the wife’s 50th birthday as a party of 5 and wanted a quality meal. Spencer’s did not disappoint. From the friendly greeting from the hostess to the introduction of our server Hailey who introduced herself and asked if we are celebrating a special occasion. She started us off with the calamari which was fried perfectly and accompanied with lemon, marinara and tarter sauce. Yummy. Secondly, the millionaire’s bacon, if you love bacon you have to try this dish at least once. To top off the appetizers we finished with the cheese and charcuterie board. A perfect blend of artisan cheese and meats with grapes and olives. Divine. For the entree’s Hailey carefully explained the temperature of how the chef is able to cook the steaks as they are cooked in a 1600 degree oven. We ordered one 22 oz. bone in Ribeye cooked med. rare. This cut of meat was cooked with a perfect crispy outside and was nice and red on the inside. So juicy. We also had the 14 oz Ribeye and the New York strip and the chef hit the mark again with two more perfectly cooked steaks. For the seafood lover the King Salmon was the best tasting salmon she had eaten. Cooked Medium and accompanied with an assortment of seasoned vegetables. Will definitely order again. We also ordered a ton of sides, Mac and cheese, mushrooms, broccolini and the garlic smashed potatoes. These portions are huge and fed 5 people with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. Hailey surprised my wife with a birthday dessert that had a variety of sweet goodness. Please don’t call my Dr. Overall we all had an excellent dinner, the atmosphere and vibe is good and will definitely be back.

Expensive yes, but quality and preparation of beef and lamb offerings was superb. If you want an aged marbled ribeye, buttery and tender to the last bite, then your expectation will be met. Ambiance is great with somewhat private settings but can be noisy if a large group is near.
Of the 3 or 4 very good steak houses in city center, it will not be a disappointment if they remain consistent.

My husband and I are nearing the end of a road trip and this meal was the best of all we had along the way. Haley provided an excellent customer service experience, the food was great and ambiance comfortable. Husband has lamb chops and I had prawn and lobster linguine dish. I usually like bright rooms with natural light but the dark setting was perfect for me this time.

Spencer’s has stepped up their game while maintaining a price level that is well below the pricey steakhouses. We will not bother going next door to Ruth’s ever again.

The service was pretty good. Very nice. The food was ok. Nothing compared to Ruth’s Chris or Fleming’s. It was missing something in the preparation. It could have been great with the ingredients but just fell short. It’s the difference in a chef

Food was perfect. We were celebrating my husband's birthday in a quiet booth. Wait staff attentive. Would recommend to anyone looking for a special meal. It is pricey as everything is a la carte, so be prepared. Two fresh and delicious salads, warm rolls & butter, 2 fillets grilled exactly to medium rare (the way we ordered them), potatoes gratin to share, under $150. With a $30 tip, still unter $200. A great place for an out-of-the-ordinary evening.
