Organic | Lancaster, Lancaster County

It was my Birthday and I was offered either Champagne or dessert on the house. I chose the Champs. The service was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The menus is all local and sustainable, organic , very healthy and fresh. I had pork belly love with warm greens and fresh Striped Bass. Hubby had Greek salad and beef tartar, then the pork dish. Everything was delectable and perfectly prepared and served. We will definitely go again many times over as this place is right up my ally. Superb! More

Seafood | Lancaster, Lancaster County

Cocktails and service were good at the bar. Unfortunately, they still can’t seem to get the fish preparation right. Two of us had the halibut special and both were very dry. This has been a consistent problem ever since moving to the new location. Steaks are usually prepared properly, the pasta dishes are good and the oysters are always superb! More

American | Lancaster, Lancaster County

I was referred to this restaurant by a wonderful server from a different restaurant where I had lunch. I sat down and ordered smoked mussels, marinated mushrooms, aged Vermont cheddar with a brown sugar date spread and spicy mustard for my first course. It was outstanding. For my main course I had their Steak Frite au Oirve with fingerling potatoes and shaved Brussels sprouts and carrots in a pepper cream sauce. I have never had a better meal, especially the culotte steak. I finished the meal with a baked chocolate ganache with blood orange sorbet. I will remember this restaurant for one of the best meals I have ever experienced. It is a small but a charming place to have dinner. More

Mediterranean | Lancaster, Lancaster County

Absolutely loved it! Our first time here...but won't be our last! Cozy and warm atmosphere. Not a large menu...and not traditional Mediterranean, but definitely a Mediterranean influence. I did hear one of the managers tell a guest they are revising their menu to include more traditional Greek dishes. Can't wait to see that! Our service was good, with at least four different people checking on us - but not overbearing. Food was wonderful! Great overall experience! More

American | Lancaster, Lancaster County

Food was very good. I liked the teamwork. We had numerous people providing us service. For the most part they ensured we had a positive experience. However, our main server made us feel rushed. We didn't even open our menus and were asked for our order. Once the food came out we didn't put our forks in our hands before we were asked if everything tasted ok and we didn't get half way through the meal before were asked about dessert and if it was ok to bring the check. This made me feel like the real concern was to turn over the table, not provide us with a good experience. More
