Diner Reviews
  • "The main entre had too much finishing salt. It was very hard for my taste buds to go beyond the salt to the other complexities of flavors that the “chef” intended to have there. It is a good thing my blood pressure generally is on the low side, or I’d be in trouble. I tend to like savory foods anyway, but this was too much salt. Yes, could have sent it back, but we were with another couple and did not want to have a time element issue. My husband also complained regarding the salt content. Shame. As a foodie I would not recommend this restaurant, until the “chef” corrects his salt happiness."

  • "We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at the Belvedere Inn. Our dinner was exceptional and the complimentary champagne toast was extra special. The food selections are so creative and so delicious. I had a side of corn brulee with my dinner and it was fabulous. Thank you for a wonderful evening!"

  • "The lunch crowd was there and the room was noisy. The lighting is very poor and that day it was noisy. Waiter was excellent and food very good."

  • "Our reservation was for 5 guests outside on the deck but unfortunately it started to rain. No problem they were prepared for us inside as well. Our server Josh was very friendly (he recognized one of our party from 2 years ago!). The atmosphere was much more casual and relaxed than I thought it would be. The food was good however a bit pricy which will somewhat limit my frequency of visits when dining out. Over all our night was very pleasant."

  • "Although the one special entrée was not available after we ordered it, the second selected entrees were excellent. Noise level was a bit loud at first but as one or two select tables left noise level was much better. Would recommend for any occasion. "

  • "The food tasted great, portions are not big but not small either. Almost all the entres are on the pricey side."

  • "The food was good but make sure you bring a winter coat durring summer if you are dinning on the main level. The HVAC is out of control and we ended up switching tables 3 times to try and find one that didn't have a significant breeze. The candles in the fireplace just didn't provide any warmth. The swordfish with white Asparagus was excellent paired with a beat salad. "

  • "We were very pleased with the dining experience at Belvedere. I took my wife there to celebrate her birthday.. Her pan-seared Tuna and my prok dish with chocolate balsamic sauce were excellent. We also very much enjoyed the enormous portion of bruschetta, and in fact boxed some of it to enjoy at home. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about all the menu options; was very informative and never intrusive. The atmosphere was beautifully romantic with intimate lighting, dark wood, tasteful black and white accents. We plan on returning and would recommend the Belvedere to anyone for a special dining occasion!"

  • "Had a killer meal, the staff was lovely, they were so nice about the fact that we were 30 minutes late for our reservation... A great experience start to finish. I'm an NYC snob and I was floored by how good the food was - the specials sounded way too complicated/fussy, but every single aspect of each dish was perfectly balanced and delicious. "

  • "Took my mom here for mother's day... service was good. The menu must have changed since being there last. The food was just okay this time. The raspberry lemonade cocktail was the only great part of the meal for me."

  • "We are never disappointed at the Belvedere Inn. The food and service is always top quality with attention to detail. The recent renovations to the interior add even more ambiance and make this a special place for personal dining and entertaining business clients as well."

  • "We were impressed upon our arrival - the decor was very much up our alley. Each thing we tried was more spectacular than the last. We were a table of three for lunch. We each had an appetizer and an entree - also ordered a soup and 1 dessert. My husband also had 2 beers and it only came to $87 for very special birthday lunch. We tried each others plate and all agreed that the creamy grits with the shrimp was the simplest, yet most fantastic starter. The lunch special of seared peppered tuna was over the top for the birthday girl. All in all, for out of towners to find this gem was as special treat!"
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "My husband and I went to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The ambiance was nice, the server was attentive and friendly, the food was a big disappointment. Certainly not what you'd expect to be served at a nice restaurant. Maybe it was an off day for the chef, but we won't be going back to find out at those prices."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "We recently went to the Belvedere Inn for my mother's birthday after being recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. The food is absolutely wonderful. The crawfish penne pasta was delicious, the scallops were among the best I had ever tasted, as was the flounder. I personally ordered the filet mignon, and I was blown away. It was the most tender and flavored steak I've ever come across in my life, well worth the $32. The appetizers were also fantastic. The only downside was our waitress, who neglected to offer us drinks and we had to ask for our own bread to be brought out. She was very nice but not a good waitress. She was probably new or something, I trust the rest of the staff is more professional. The food made up for it."

  • "Went to dinner with six family members for a group birthday. The food and service was outstanding. For older diners, however, the lighting and noise level was more than a little challanging. I was happy that we able to review the menu from the web site with my father prior to arriving."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The live jazz lured us in during our visit to Lancaster and the Isaac Trio did not disappoint. The staff were all very friendly and the service was warm and efficient. The actual menu was more limited than the menu featured on Open Table. We were disappointed that none of the items that excited us in advance were available during our visit. The grilled chicken Caesar salad was delicious, but the crab dip and pulled pork flatbread appetizers fell short of expectation."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Wife and I were Belvedere Inn virgins and dined on a rainy Friday evening and were promptly greeted at the door and immediately seated where we received great service, fabulous drinks and exceptional food. Would highly recommend and will return again soon!"

  • "Food and wait staff were excellent. Wait staff knew the menu and how the food was prepared. Portions were of appropriate size. Menu is extensive. Presentation was good. Tables are close together and room is rather dark. Enjoyed dining there. In my opinion not for young children. I would certainly go back."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food, wine selection, atmosphere, and service are so good that anyone who dines here once keeps coming back. It's hard enough to get a reservation now. So, please do not dine here. "

  • "Four of us ate dinner here and we all loved it. The Grilled Cesar Salad is one of the best around, and the short ribs were to die for.... The only complaint I have is that they are located in Lancaster Pa and not New York, where I live."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Had a 7PM reservation but had a 1/2 hour wait for our table. Salmon and grouper were excellent, filet needed to be returned. Ordered it med rare but came out very rare. Vegetables had very heavy flavor of smoke - too much! Downstairs room very noisy as compared to the upstairs area. Manhattan and appletini were excellent - my compliments to the bartender!"

  • "We took our parents for dinner to celebrate my Mothers birthday. The Belvedere went over the top to make her feel special. They had a Happy Birthday note addressed to my Mother tucked in each one of our napkins. It was a wonderful welcoming way to start out our dinner. The server was friendly and helpful and the food was great! We don't get out often but we will try to get back soon. Thanks for a great evening!"

  • "The Belvedere is one of the very good restaurants in Lancaster but lately we've found the food rather pedestrian, especially at the prices they charge. They are now more generous with the portion size - for awhile everything was so small you were still hungry when you finished - but the dishes themselves, while they sound delicious - aren't very exciting. They do make excellent drinks and there is still much to like about the Belvedere, but the good quality had slipped."

Quite outgoing and very easy to converse with. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to other friends. We got our reservation on line. Easy, quick response and perfect. Thank you for a great dinner. Desert was good too."

  • "My son who lives in Philadelphia was home for the weekend and we made plans to have dinner on First Friday. I asked him to pick where? No hesitation.......the Belvedere. Great service, food and a place you always feel welcome. If you haven't tried it yet you won;t be disappointed. If you have dined there before you will understand. Best in Downtown Lancaster!"

  • "Service was very good - food was different and excellent! Did not rush you out the door. A relaxing and enjoyable experience!! The wine list was very good but the beer was not as expansive a list- still there were a few good craft beer choices."

  • "Great service and really good food, though a bit pricey. Very nice ambiance; we were seated next to the candle-filled fireplace. Justin was a very friendly and knowledgeable waiter, and the host went out of his way to get us information about the great house Malbec my wife had. My Maker's Mark and Coke was perfect. The swordfish and Osso Bucco we had were wonderful. Great romantic dinner spot."
