Food was delicious from appetizer to dessert. Josh, our server, was wonderful and added to our dining experience. Cocktails were exceptional. All of the food was amazing, but preferred the previous recipe for braised short ribs over the newer, sweeter version. Had I known the recipe changed, I would likely have ordered something else.

The Belvedere is a charming inn. We met my cousin and her husband there to celebrate their birthdays and the inn had a note card on the table for them - a thoughtful touch! Everything we ordered from cocktails through dessert was delicious. I have to note that the lobster tail was cooked to perfection! Our server was also attentive and personable. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

The food and service were wonderful. The only complaint we had was that our waitress was a soft talker and with the noise level it was extremely difficult to hear her and when we told her we couldn't hear her she made a joke about our hearing. Other than that it was wonderful.

Scallops were so good and the salmon Cesar salad always to the best. Delicious lobster bisque. Had a couple pints of the IPA. Finished dinner off with a glass of champs and creme brulee. We sat outside and the weather was just perfect. Lindsay was our server, she was wonderful! We dined before Mama Mia, they had us in and out in plenty of time to walk to the Fulton on a beautiful evening.

Service was nicely paced and the food was top quality. Our server was personable and saw to it that the meal and wine flowed pleasantly. The mixed seafood and pasta was great. We look forward to sharing the Belvedere with friends some time soon for a dinner.

The second story porch has beautiful and bountiful floral plantings - a perfect setting for a perfect evening. Figgy blossom martini - fig flavored vodka, the best specialty cocktail I've ever had! Dinner was wild mushroom and artichoke risotto with shrimp, perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. My partner's meal was jumbo lump crabcake, all lump, no filler and also absolutely delicious. Dessert, creme brulee - base velvety and creamy and the sugar topping perfectly browned and crunchy. Our waitress Kim was very friendly and helpful.
One of our favorite places in Lancaster, I only regret that we don't live closer so we could dine there more often.
Thanks for a memorable dining experience!

You bet I would! We celebrated our wedding anniversary there with friends. They had a lovely card on our table congratulating us and served us a complimentary champagne toast which was so nice! The food was exceptional! Every dish was prepared well and to our liking and proportions were generous.
Our servers were attentive and very welcoming. We can't wait to go back! Thank you Belvedere for making our anniversary so special!

Lindsay was or server and she was excellent. Very prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. Our food was very good. We loved the grilled Caesar salads, and my husband loved his potatoe soup. He had the 4 hour short rib entree which was delicious. I had surf and terf - filet mignon and lobster tail. The filet was delicious but not the absolute best I've ever had. I ordered medium rare and it was a bit overcooked. My lobster tail however was by far the best I've ever had. I gave my husband a hue and regretted it. My side dish (potatoes and gratin) was also very good. Or cocktails we're also very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Decorated as advertised on the web site. Very dark and classy with linens on the table and attentive service from the wait staff. Short ribs my wife ordered were prepared with a 4 hour bake time the melt in the mouth result was fantastic. My special aged strip steak was prepared as asked, medium rare and our sides were great. Seating was tight and the place was a bit loud to hear each other during dinner. I booked this place to really take in the jazz bar upstairs. The décor followed up there and music was a very good trio of a bass, guitar and saxophone. We stayed to the end of one set into the beginning of the next. The only down side was being "disconnected" twice when calling before our arrival asking for assistance with directions to a parking garage. I thought about not showing up at all but pressed on after trips around the blocks to find the garage tucked a block up the street from the Belvedere on the left. Glad I did find parking it was worth it to have an enjoyable evening at the Belvedere.

Henry our server was experienced and attentive to our requests even more for my sister who has a citrus allergy he spoke to the chef and made sure every thing was in order for her. The menu and menu choices were great. The bbq short ribs were outstanding. The steak special for the evening I am told was outstanding as well. A place I definitely would recommend for a special evening.

Interior a little too dark after the lights were turned down about 1/2 hr or so into our visit (@ 7:45-8pm). Best salmon we've had anywhere. Prices on regular menu were reasonable. Specials were somewhat high, but kudos to the waitstaff for telling us what they cost without prompting. Very attentive and friendly staff. Will definitely return.

service was poor....food had a good taste....drink sat unrefreshed for over 15 minutes. finally had to ask if i could get another drink. They were out of the meal that my wife wanted so she had to choose again... when her braised ribs came out they were warm at best..the sauce had started to thicken.. I suspect it sat while the rest of the meals were prepared. In all fairness, they were busy, but you pay a big premium for food and drinks there so they really should get it right the first time..
