My girlfriend and I really love The Belvedere Inn. We travel from Harrisburg to celebrate special occasions here or when we are in the Lancaster area and simply need/want a great meal. This most recent time we dined here was to have a fun and delicious date night. Do you like good wine/beer/liquor? Do you like a fun and cozy atmosphere? More importantly, do you value a delicious and unique meal? If you said yes to 2 out of those 3 questions, this place is for you. We always look forward to the next time we can come.

Only reason service lost two stars was because I asked for my bourbon neat with a side glass of ice. Server acknowledged that request. But came back with a glass filled with a fist full of ice in my pretty pricey bourbon (blanton's). The food is always worth the price, but I found some of the drinks, cocktails and whiskey (scotch especially) to be a tad overpriced.

Food to try: 4 hr short rib (melts in your mouth, no knife needed), caesar salad (like julius caesar, this salads just rules all other salads on their menu), scallop/shrimp dishes, chicken dish(es), chilean sea bass

Food(s) to maybe avoid/better to get elsewhere: not much, they do it all extremely well -- but we found that their asian inspired dishes aren't as great as their other dishes

Will we go back: 100% yes -- no question about it

Score: 78.5/100
Ambiance: 8.5/10
Service: 22/30 (normally would give them a higher score, probably closer to 24/25 but this most recent time the server was a tad slow and messed up the drink order, the table runner was fantastic though)
Drinks: 22/30 (wine was superb, bourbon was fantastic just a little overpriced and messed up the order, or else probably a 24/30, not as big of a wine list as we would've liked, but get bonus points for having rose listed)
Food: 26/30

The Belvedere is a reminder that fine dining still exists. Really fine dining. They way I remember fine dining to be decades ago. No sports bar, no screaming, no three flavors of wings. Just a lovely meal, lovely setting, lovely service.

number 1 restaurant in lancaster there is always someone at the front door to welcome you. the dining area is cozy and we love the decor. the service is outstanding starting at the front door, ordering our food till the end of the meal. the menu allows you to find many choices and all choices are perfectly prepared. my husband and i eat often at the restaurant and never had anything we did not love. we also bring our family there for special occasions and they love it there. we were there for thanksgiving last year and were seated upstairs my grown up children loved it. the atmosphere was lively and the meal was great. we also bring them for birthdays. they have also become patrons of the restaurant. this has become our favorite place for guests and friends. if you have not been there yet you are missing on excellent service and fine food. our favorite item on the menu is the filet. it has always been prepared the way you like it. this will always be our number 1 restaurant in lancaster. try it you wil love it.

The food was exactly what we needed on a cold night. The soup was delicious!
We ordered a bunch of starters instead of two entrees and the waitress was very helpful to bring only a few out at a time so as not to overwhelm the table.

Belvedere once again hits it out of the ballpark. This is the best meal in Lancaster. Had the filet with perfect scalloped potatoes and asparagus. Topped off with crane brûlée! Was seated upstairs which is a little noisier but not overwhelming at all. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The food was excellent - from appetizer to dessert. My husband is extremely picky because of always traveling and he was thoroughly impressed by their food and service, which is a rare thing for him to say! This place would be my go to place if I lived closer but it will be my go to for out of town date nights from now on. The only thing is if you want a quiet place to talk I wouldn't recommend being seated upstairs on a Saturday night because with the live music and people talking over top of the music it does get quite loud. But it was a fun atmosphere. I can't wait to go back!

Very good place to eat. Great atmosphere and great service. Only reason gave food a 4 star is I got the escargot appetizer and it lacked flavor. Very bland. Also, the rolls were a little stale,but that didn't take away from our experience there. Henry, our server was excellent and made for an enjoyable evening.
