Great food and well presented.Great food and well presented. This is really fine dining. Don't expect to be overfed, but you will be satisfied when you leave. The "fries in the jar" are excellent.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Pre-TheatreWe enjoyed our charcuterie course with the delicious duck fat fries and just-right second course before a performance at the Fulton Theatre. Convenient and not too heavy. The place was jumping with a First Friday (or TGIF) crowd.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SpotGreat wine and beer lists, very good service and good food. Most impressive was that they remembered that my wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, which I had mentioned when making the reservation. The small plates were excellent, with the exception of the Stuffed Pork Tenderloin which was very dry. If you want some quiet for dinner conversation, ask for the front room. The bar area is louder but with a good energy and vibe.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and attentive serviceOn a Sunday evening, it was pretty quiet. We shared the duck fat French fries and two plates: linguini and scallops. The fries with garlic aoli were out of this world. The linguini was fresh and cooked to perfection. The scallops were seared and seasoned perfectly as well. I really enjoyed the root vegetables that were served with both
The beer selection is outstanding. I don't remember what I drank specifically but the two beers I had were great.
For dessert we shared orange dreamscile that was divine. We told our waitress about my wife's sensitivity to orange zest and were erved the ice cream separate from the part that had the orange zest.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPut POUR on your list...Best wine and beer selection for a full service place in Lancaster. Chef Howard and Chef Aho are creative geniuses that really put excitement in getting your meal. Portion sizes are small but still appropriate. If you like unique cocktails, then you have to come to POUR... They won the last Lancaster cocktail challenge and their entries were simply stellar.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fine Dining Gem in LancasterThe duck fat fries and roasted garlic aioli are KILLER. I would return just for an order of fries and a sampling of beers. Our charcuterie board was also outstanding -- we got the wild boar salami, prosciutto, speck, aged goat gouda, rupert, and kunik. From there we segued into the charred elk loin with compressed honeydew. Far from the rich, earthy dish we were expecting, the combination of the perfectly rare elk and cool honeydew read like sushi! We then ordered the chocolate cake, which also defied our expectations. I didn't actually detect any chocolate flavor, and the "vanilla & cinnamon custard" tasted weirdly citrusy. However, the sage ice cream more than made up for it! Excellent dining experience for our anniversary dinner.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe stopped in for wine andWe stopped in for wine and cocktails which were very good. We shared cheeses and meats for starters, but left before dinner. We plan to return for a full meal soon.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMIn Lancaster?You'd expect a restaurant like this in New York. Great to find in Lancaster! Really unique food without the attitude.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHip restaurant in downtown LancastePOUR has a hip vibe and is situated in an excellent location on Gallery Row in downtown Lancaster. The menu consists of mostly small dishes that are unique, delicious and artfully presented. Choose from seating in the art gallery, bar area or outdoor patio. Fine international selection of beers and wines.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a drink!We showed up at 10:30 PM and we got the duck fries and they were so wonderful! The bartender was also really helpful. They also give everyone a pitcher of water which was a very nice touch. The instead was really modern and welcoming, and outside looked nice a pretty nice spot too.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Pour beforeI have been to Pour before but it was the first time for my friend and she LOVED it! Thank you for wonderful food, excellent wine and great service!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only downside to our diningThe only downside to our dining pleasure was squeezing four groups of 2 at the small tables in the bar area, destroying any opportunity for intimacy among the three couples.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience at POUR.Great experience at POUR. We went with a family of 6-- 3 kids, 3 adults. The restaurant was very accommodating and attentive the entire time. The server even offered to take the kids to see the art gallery and they loved it!
The food was very good. It seemed to take a strangely long time to plate and serve all the dishes (you can see into the plating area), but generally speaking, everything was excellent.
For kids, you have to be a little creative. Pancakes, a side of eggs, a side of bacon, a side of toast....but the prices for the sides are extremely reasonable, so it's feasible.
I'd love to go back for dinner without kids and try it that way too.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWe had an excellent time for our first experience. The wine and beer list is great and the food choices were fabulous. We decided to go light... meats, cheeses and then salads, shared around the table. Coming away, we all commented on wanting to go back again for full meals.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA Lancaster GemOur 2nd visit to this gem and certainly will not be our last. Staff is very knowledgeable and eager to share the menu, suggestions and comments. Truly a great addition to the Lancaster restaurant scene.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWow....these Philly folk wereWow....these Philly folk were not expecting to find such a gem in Lancaster. We are big foodies and have learned to lower our expectations when outside of big cities, but no need here. Food was top notch! We went for brunch and had the awesome Bloody Mary and Irish coffee. We can never pass up charcuterie and cheese which did not disappoint. We had chicken or the egg...omg grits were best I've ever had and surf and turf, also delicious. Realizing it was the anniversary of the repeal of prohibition we had to have a beer as well, great selection! Server was knowledgable and attentive. Diverse crowd...the place was filled with all types of people. Would recommend again and again!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough somewhat noisy, thisAlthough somewhat noisy, this restaurant is a must for the serious food explorer. Changing menus keeps the diner ready for something new every week. Smaller servings are a welcome expectation. One can leave the meal without feeling stuffed. The selection of beer is widespread...local to worldwide. When downtown, a must stop for dinner.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMReally loved it. InterestingReally loved it. Interesting and wonderfully prepared food. Be sure to try some of the artisanal cheeses. The fiddleheads and fresh peas served along with the little filet tasted like spring!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a must if you areThis is a must if you are in Lancaster. The food is outstanding and it's surrounded by interesting art. Our 8 year-old son is a foodie and he said: "finally, a restaurant that doesn't have a kids' menu". This restaurant is meant for grown-ups, but our 3 year-old who is not yet a foodie enjoyed the pasta dish.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed our diningThoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Will be back, and would recommend to friends. I live in Harrisburg, and am not in Lancaster often, but will definitely be back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to pour for a casualWent to pour for a casual business meeting, food and drinks were great!!
Menu is limited, but something suitable for all taste. We had a great evening!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Pour!! The wine &We love Pour!! The wine & beer lists are the best! The service is always great!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEclectic perfect for foodies!Loved, loved, loved the small plates and variety of choices was just right. My husband and I tried cheeses, small plates and dinner plates. The Lobster Coucous was wonderful, as well as the Fries!! I had the 3 dips of ice cream, what a great treat to finally try Bacon Ice cream. The Green Tea was tasty and the Basil IC superb! Can't wait to go back with a group and try everything.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time we've gone here.Second time we've gone here. First time was with my wife and we ordered a selection of meats/cheeses with a bottle of wine finished off with desert and was amazed how much I enjoyed it and was full. This time was with my 22 yr old daughter and 20 yr old son. Skipped the plates and again did the board and bottle of wine and 3 of us enjoyed it immensely (my son wasn't as impressed, not old enough for wine and didn't like the board selection - but I guess I knew that he wouldn't and should have insisted on him ordering one of the plates which looked amazing). Whole experience encourages spending time and talking instead of seeing and being seen.
So for us 40 somethings, it was great!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile I enjoyed my visit here,While I enjoyed my visit here, I was disappointed to be squeezed in along a wall with several other tables. It was not private...sitting 16 inches from total strangers. I had asked for a table in the back room when we arrived but was told they were taken. However, the whole time we were there, those tables were never filled with people. The cheese, bread and meat appetizer is delicious but extremely overpriced...even for gourmet cheeses and meats. They give you a lot of bread with this plate but no butter or infused olive oil. By the time we ate our cheeses and meats we had a lot of wasted bread on the plate. Our meals were delicious but small. I love supporting the local restaurants but I won't be going back too often to POUR.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
