Steak was amazing! Great service! Would definitely go back!
We were sat at their even hall with only 6 people in that massve space with covid social distancing protocol! We ordered 3 course meal with a bottle of Veuve Cliquot substitute to Moet. Melissa was our server, she was very pleasant and accommodating. They even put a candle and a “Happy Birthday” on my dessert which was a very nice touch and didn’t expect that. I had a great time along with my partner at that time. Lastly, Melissa charged the bottle of Veuve as the price of Moet which is cheaper for 25$
Thanks Melissa and the team at Spencer’s. We would like to come back again for brunch in the summer. Hopefully Moet will be available when we come back;)but I like Veuve also.
It was a nice and fancy restaurant. I’m gonna have another dinner soon.
The food was impeccable from start to finish. Love the ambiance and the location right by the waterfront is fantastic!
We attendees to celebrate our birthdays. Delicious good. Great service. Beautiful atmosphere.
$23 for a glass of wine is a bit rich, as this bottle is available at the lcbo for the same price as what
You’re charging for a glass! Food portions are very small. Food tasted amazing!
This was our first time at Spencer’s and it was amazing. The food was phenomenal and fresh. Our server was great and very friendly. Dinner here is an experience and was worth every penny! We’ll be back for sure!
The food and the service was amazing The venue is always stunning. I highly recommend the octopus appetizer and the salmon and scallops entree
Our experience was tremendous. Our server Melissa was professional and courteous and Daniel went above and beyond ensuring we had the right bottle of wine to drink. Well done Spencer’s!
Absolutely amazing in every aspect!!!! Will be back often!
Food came out cold , they had us sitting in a small glass room with good view but it was cold and didn’t feel like you were part of the Restaunrant .. overall disappointing
Staff is always friendly, good is always excellent. During Covid, the restaurant goes out of its way with very strict Covid protocols, which is greatly appreciated
Great atmosphere and impeccable service. Will recommend to all of my friends and family.
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
We were there for lunch and had a table on the window. The whole experience was enhanced being able to watch people on the skating rink and lake activity. The food was excellent with great presentation, but we did find it a bit pricey.
Wow! Spencer’s you really outdid yourself! The food was amazing but the best part was actually the ambiance. Even though only 10 people were allowed at a time, the restaurant made it feel like it was full! The staff was friendly, and most importantly they were not understaffed like we have seen at other places. Would most definitely return. Amazing Christmas Lunch with my Team. Thank you Spencer’s!
Came for a birthday dinner. We were provided with excellent service, staff and food. They even topped off the experience, making it even more special with a complementary sparkling wine and candle with desert. Thank you!
We love the ambiance of Spencer's. It is of course, much quieter at the moment because of the COVID rules re distancing. I always order the salmon and scallops....LOVE IT! I did ask the waiter if the Pinot Noir was what we ordered, he said yes, I am still not sure. It was very full bodied and strong tasting. That's why we order Pinot Noir much lighter. There seemed to be only one waiter serving and he seemed very rushed and possibly overwhelmed. We did receive a call a couple hours before our reservation, to let us know that there maybe a problem parking, with instructions where you would be able to go. Very nice thank you! When we arrived they were actually shooting a commercial for DSW, but all was organized....didn't affect us at all.
Great experience here at Spencer
Private space during the pandemic
Somehow disappointed by the dessert I left note that it’s for anniversary but there’s nothing written by the cake;(
Overall it’s great !
Service is the best. Very nice location. There is not such a big variety on the menu to choose from, but the food is good overall. It was a pleasant experience.
Waited at least 30min for a table that we had resos for. Communication between staff was poor and was never relayed. General manager did speak to us at end of night, got my information and said they would reimburse us. We will see if anything does get done.
2 of us, ordered 2 appies and 3 mains. Have to say, I expected good food but it was even better than expected. In short, was very good! Unfortunate that covid has reduced the number of people but I do wonder if that allows the talented chef(s) to really shine with focus on the fewer plates. Our server, Melissa, was amazing. Down to earth and very cool. I’ve been before as a local but tonight’s experience was exceptional.
Spencer’s reserved a table as requested and it turned out to be the exact table we sat at 5 years ago on our first date there. Service, food and ambience were great as usual.

From the moment we walked in, from the cheery disposition of the attendant, to the wonderful food recommendations of the server to the incredibly delicious meal and drinks, our experience at Spencer’s was outstanding. I would highly recommend this establishment...but a little part of me doesn’t want to share this gem so I can keep it to myself!
We loved Spencer’s we were disappointed we didn’t get to sit in the actual restaurant we were put into a big room normally used for functions and weddings.
Beautiful setting. Food was perfect. Service very timely
Awesome experience, especially during these trying times.
Great food and presentation of plates! Very safe and protocols well observed!
Great evening. Lovely atmosphere and great food.
Everything was amazing from the food to the presentation and the service. I’ve been several times. Each time was perfect ! Def Recommend Spencer’s At The Waterfront !
We were there for lunch. My husband had the burger, and I had the lobster sandwich, both were delicious. We had each of our meal with fries, but the portion is large enough to share. During these difficult times, we look for a restaurant where we feel safe, and given the size of place, we did, and had a wonderful table with a view of the park and the water! Would absolutely recommend Spencer, and we will be back, hopefully before Christmas!
Selections of food were very limited, Quality of food was so bad, and services was horible
will never go back again, always was used to like this restaurant
in the last two weeks we have enjoyed our meals very much, and to note my son and his wife went for lunch and had a great meal. Keep up the good work although it is so unfortunate that you are restricted on your seating, we believe you have kept everything well under control
During the new restrictions you have to book specific times slots for dinner and you have 90 mins before you have to leave. My reservation was for 6:30. We arrived at 6:30 and was not seated until 7:00. We were told the previous table wasn’t ready to leave. Then we were seated in a sparsely decorated area, not the restaurant but what appeared to be an open space used by events.
This was the first time here and we were very pleased with everything the food was amazing staff was above and beyond excellent we will definitely be back :)
The restaurant had their protocol in place therefore we felt safe and enjoyed our dinner very much.
The portions are bite size, after spending a substantial amount of money on apps and mains we had to grab a pizza on the way home because we were starving. The scallops tasted off. When you read the menu you have to remember everything is singular..1 mushroom, 1 ravioli, 1 piece of broccoli that you will get on your plate. I guess you’re paying for the view which was the only good thing but just save yourself the trouble and go for a walk and skip the meal.
Excellent service! The food was delicious 🤤 Our server also made some great recommendations.
