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. More

Ended up in Lancaster by chance, and found this on Open Table. Easy access from the parking garage, the building used to be a newspaper office. Nice decor, and a fun vibe. Our waiter was really great: personable and attentive without being overbearing. The food was all wonderful. Delicious crab bisque, and a perfectly prepared pizza, as well as delicious chocolate cake. We didn't have brunch, but the bloody mary and mimosa bar looked terrific. I would definitely recommend, and would return if ever back in Lancaster. More

American | Lancaster, Lancaster County

The three of us go here for our birthday celebrations. One of us always gets the Salmon salad and another one gets the pear and fig salad with salmon added to it. The third person gets whatever happens to appeal to her at the moment. We are usually very satisfied. We had a very attentive waitress and the food was excellent. We had a very quiet nook so that we were able to talk and communicate very well. Additionally, we each had an alcoholic drink. One of us was shocked to discover a glass of white chardonnay - nonspecific - was $14.50. the mimosa and bloody Mary were each "only" $11. Wine seemed a bit steep in price. More

Food and service were excellent. Not very busy for a Wednesday night. I was a little cold because the front doors of the hotel are right in the front of the restaurant and cold air flows in every time door opens. But that aside, I would go again. My crab cakes were delicious. Dessert was ok, nothing to right home about. I guess dessert is not their specialty. More
