Belvedere Inn Restaurant and Bar
good food just ok locationWe chose this for mothers day. The restaurant is very nice and the food selection excellant. Our food was prepared well and we enjoyed it. The only negatives were the parking is almost non-existant the neighborhood is not very nice valet parking would be good. The noise from the bar was loud and distracting closing the door between there and the dining room would have helped.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceHave been to The Belvedere numerous times one of our favorites in Lancaster. The food, the service and the atmosphere is the best.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day dinnerMy adult son and I took my 90 year old mother for mother's day dinner. The front of house staff were very friendly, helpful and well versed. The ambience of the old inn, dark woods, fireplace, etc. was beautiful, but it really was too dark. It could have been a touch lighter. The food was delicious and well plated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, the BelvedereOnce again, the Belvedere provided a great dinner! We took my mother here for mother's day - five of us were able to enjoy a great meal. I made reservations, being that it was mother's day and they were so kind an accommodating when I asked if we could be seated on the first floor. My mother thoroughly enjoyed looking at the inside because of how historic it looks.
The only issue we had was that someone came and pick up a plate of an appetizer that we weren't finished with yet, he should have asked if we were done first.
Anyways, the food is AMAZING! We all shared 4 appetizers, enjoyed the petite grilled caesar salad, and not one piece of food was left on the entree plates! Thank you!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial food and wineA superb menu served in an elegant setting. Try the braised short ribs! Close seating means a somewhat noisy ambiance, but it's a great place for that special occasion.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with my familyThe service was top notch from being seated the instant we arrived to a waiter who was professional, friendly, well spoken, efficient and always ready to move to the next phase without being noticed. Seldom do yuo find service at this level

We were so blown away and so pleasantly surprised about the food and its presentation at the Belvedere. It was delicious. Plus we were looking for a quiet and romantic get a way weekendand this restaurant fit the bill. The lighting was dim and romantic, the wine was excellent and the service just right.

The server was attentive and knowledgeable, the atmosphere is lovely old-world without being stuffy and the food was unbelievably delicious. The duck breast spring rolls were crispy and luscious and a surprisngly generous portion of two large rolls cut in half on a heavenly sauce. My husband's osso bucco was so tender. I ordered salmon and was aksed, for the first time, hw I would like it cooked (medium, wll-done, etc.) I like salmon barely seared and was able to order it medium-rare - perfect! It came with savory sauteed cabbage and a pesr and dried cherry bread pudding that was light and moist.

The evening, however, was somewhat compromised when a very large group in the constrained space came and was very loud.
Our server was excellent. She was helped by the other main server at the end,who spontaneously took our credit card to process when the original server was assigned to the large group. This displayed a culture of teamwork.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHost was very friendly andHost was very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. The creative menu did not disappoint us.
