Great place in all areas. The inside seating was socially distanced and dividers were still put between tables. We felt very safe (COVID-related) and the wait staff and food were great.

maybe because I'm old and from the northern baltimore county area of maryland...i felt the dress code (bermudas, t-shirts with writing on them, no collars on shirts) was just to bad for such a nice restaurant. Ownership of any business most decide who they are.

We love The Belvedere and that's why we chose it as our place to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
We've not been in since the pandemic began, so we reserved our table online and were happy to get the time we desired.
We were seated almost immediately after arriving...at first, the light directly over our table was WAY to bright, but we found the nearby dimmer switch pretty quickly and were able to take in on ourselves to adjust the lights to a comfortable level (which, I may say, was quietly applauded by the other tables in our section!).
The food and beverages were excellent, as was our services. Jimmy, our server, assisted my wife with her selection when she was torn between the entree selections and she was very happy with her final choice.
The highlight was dessert, where we split the "Creme de Pots" and wallowed in creamy decadence, accompanied by a generous glass of ruby port (so many bars only carry tawny ports)...
All in all, a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back...Slainte!

Came in for our anniversary dinner and had a wonderful experience! Our waiter was attentive, and I wish I could've ordered everything on the menu. Lobster bisque and lamb appetizers were especially delicious, and our entrees we're fabulous.

Our service from Jimmy was exceptional! It was our first night back at the Belvedere since COVID hit. We felt more than comfortable with all of the team’s careful efforts. What a wonderful spot in Lancaster! Can’t wait for our next meal.

We are new to the area since Covid so this was our first time at the Belvedere. It definitely lived up to our expectations! The Caesar salads were great. My wife had the short ribs and I had the sea bass. Both excellent. Certainly on the expensive side of dining so be ready to spend some money! Jimmy was our waiter and he was great!

The Belvedere was a very beautiful restaurant but the food was significantly below expectations and many other restaurants I’ve dined at. I ordered the 45 day dry rubbed NY Strip medium rare and it came out very rare with quite a bit of grizzle throughout the cut of meat. The price was $51.00 and definitely not worth it. My wife ordered the Lamb Chop and again it was barely cooked and on the chewy side to the point she hardly ate anything at a $49.00 price. The deserts were very good and service was fine

Overall I was very disappointed in our experience.

One of the best dining experiences we have ever experienced. The pumpkin soup with crab and the lobster bisque would be a reason to come back just for them! Impeccable service, outstanding dinners. Ended the perfect birthday with a perfect dinner.

I’m a regular at The Belvedere and have been patiently waiting for them to reopen. They are still very much on point with service, food and ambience. Lindsay was our server and we always love her presence. I’m never disappointed when I dine in at The Belvedere so thank you for never letting me down!

We were seated promptly. COVID 19 precautious were in place and our table location was great. Our waiter was outstanding. Friendly, but not overwhelming. Made great wine suggestions. Informed us that we could take any leftover wine home with us. The space between courses was perfect. A few recommendations on the food - more garlic in the Escargo and serve with bread. Also, need to spice up the crab cakes a little. All in all very yummy and I'd highly recommend it.
