Table 11

If music is the food of love, as Shakespeare said, in few restaurants does that thought resonate quite as it does at Spencer’s Table 11, set right behind Spencer’s piano player. Cuddling next to your partner in the deep booth, feeling the music, and dining on Australian Rock Lobster Tail, Wild Mushroom Risotto or Spencer’s other classic American dishes makes for an intimate evening. Spencer’s is elegant, dramatically lit both inside and on the patio, and Palm Springs residents appreciate dining there. It won 2014’s “Best Restaurant in the Valley” from Desert Magazine and is the only Palm Springs restaurant to win Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence for its extraordinary wine cellar.
