Thanks for hosting us on April 2nd.
We ordered the calamari and bread for apps. The fried calamari was dry and was not up to our expectations. The bread wasn’t as fresh as we would have liked. We were hoping the main course would make up for the disappointing apps.
For mains we ordered the friend chicken and scallops and fish. We had to send the fried chicken back as it was very dry and the fries were extremely salty. The fish and scallops were just okay. Our server was nice enough to take the fried chicken back and bring us fish instead.
We paid a bill of close to $200 and were extremely disappointed with our experience. We wanted to celebrate the last day before the lockdown with some good food and wine but were left with a sour taste. Overall I do not recommend the restaurant as there was barely any music where we were seated, the food was just average and the vibe was not up to the mark for such a location.
I was expected higher quality of food based on the price of the dish.
Food was kind of disappointment other than that everything else was good
Most delicious appetizers, got the pork and scallop as well as the calamari. All the other food was great but you must have a cocktail and appetizers even if you skip everything else.
Great view, great food & great service for my birthday celebration!
Spent an evening at Spencer's at a table overlooking the lake. Enjoyed the branzino and an unbelievable short rib. Service was personable and intuitive. We felt very safe given the distancing and other precautions. Thank you for a memorable 1st anniversary meal!
Wonderful dinner out. 👍🏼 Can’t wait to go again
great experience all around for my birthday!! thank you!!
Everything is always great. Yesterday everything was wonderful except for the wait time. Although we did understand that it was exceptionally busy. So I still give your restaurant all 5 stars
March 30th and Patio Season came early
Beautiful Day and Great Lunch
Not up to its previous self. Perhaps as a result having to pivot with the to hold a market presence due to COVID.
It was great! Morgan was amazing and attentive. Service was quick , great ambiance and view
Tasty food, amazing service. Beautiful views all around. Will definitely be returning!
Spencer’s is a beautiful restaurant, but the lobster carbonara was horrible - I think they forgot to put the lobster on.
Great food and quality service from the staff. The questionnaire that we needed to complete before we were seated seemed a little excessive.
Great service, great food and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Food is amazing and the view is sooooo nice. The service is 5 Stars! Highly highly recommend it.
We had a great experience! The service was amazing and the food was even better!
It was a pretty day out and the patio was packed. The food was great but our waiter was very busy so we had to be patient. Someone else was complaining that their waitress hadn't come by. They may need a little extra staff. I was also surprised how busy given the pandemic but it was also refreshing to get out for a meal.
Much needed time to get out after being locked in for the past couple of months. Food and ambiance really helped us and our mental health! This is one of our go to places in Burlington!
Great service and great food
Would be even better if menu was changed up more frequently
Delicious food and impeccable service, will definitely visit again in the future
I’ve been to Spencer’s a few times and it is a great choice. The view is beautiful, the food is great and the service is awesome!
Amazing quality food and great service worth the price. I was there for dinner on March 13 for my boyfriend’s birthday, the customer service is wonderful specially because the general manager has a passion for customer service and is very involved with customer and very helpful with the staff in the restaurant what I call a great leader!!!! Everyone one is so accommodating I’ll will definitely come back
Great food! Great service. My steak was a bit over cooked, but they rectified the issue right away without any trouble. Great service, food came quickly and everything was presented nicely
Great experience, great hosts and service.
Dinner at Spencer's was such a treat. Great atmosphere, service, and food.
Amazing and if you love fried chicken- OMG get it, it will change your whole life
The menu got really cut off due to COVID no variety .
Service s good
Weather and view was perfect! We had a nice time to chat with my friend; salads were delicious and service was phenomenal!
Amazing service, food was absolutely delicious and great portions for the price. Ambiance was intimate. Great experience
A great place to dine during the Pandemic. The tables were widely spaced. The service was fast. The waiter was very professional and funny. Just what we needed. Thanks
Great place and very consistent. Thanks so much for a wonderful time!
A retirement dinner
This is a nice restaurant with excellent food and atmosphere. Will be back once the ridiculous Government imposes COVID restrictions are lifted from these small business owners.
A wonderful little escape from the outside world. It was so nice to get dressed up and go out to a classy restaurant.
We felt “normal” for 90 minutes:)
Amazing food and service. Loved the beet salad and the lobster carbonara! Cant wait to go back.
Briar was lovely, as always! She makes every visit to Spencer’s memorable. We had a nice quiet spot with a lovely view, and we were distanced from other people. We did not feel the slightest bit rushed, despite dining limits that are now in place. Overall, the experience was very nice; the ganache was to die for, service was on point, and I will definitely be back to Spencer’s in the near future!
Beautiful experience! Went for lunch with my mom and had an excellent bottle of French rose sparkling wine, paired with Burrata and oysters to started. The salmon and scallop dish was delicious. Server was very kind and respectful. Hostess (Anastasia) was very nice! Very welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be back!
