Traveled to Lancaster to attend a show at the Sight & Sound Theatre so we made reservations for dinner. Very unique setting and the food was absolutely delicious. They have a great menu and the staff was great. We plan to eat dinner at Belvedere each time I visit Lancaster.

We had a fabulous experience, the space was beautiful and the food was exceptional. While it was a bit pricey, it was certainly compatible with other high end restaurants. I wish I would have had room for dessert. We will be back. The atmosphere was a bit loud, but we actually enjoyed it.

I came across a review of the restaurant myself and it made me want to go to this restaurant... I was glad that I had made reservations online because it was everything that the review said, from the fine atmosphere to the excellent food and the staff were all excellent.... I will be going there next time I am in the Lancaster area.....

We went for my birthday and we're still talking about the meal! Our cocktails were the perfect way to kick off the evening. The lemon drop martini and peach Bellini martini were beautiful and delicious. We started with the fried avocado and the crab dip for appetizers. Both were excellent, the crab dip being better than any other I've had before. Yummy grilled Caesar salad, and all the entrees were to die for. Favorites at our table included the short ribs, risotto, and the short rib stroganoff. Dessert was a scrumptious butterscotch bread pudding! We can't wait to go back!

The food was delicious and service was friendly. The seafood was cooked perfectly and dessert was perfect, but the lamb dish was a bit over cooked and escargot didn’t have much flavor.

What a meal. From start to finish everything was 5 star. Kim our server was top notch. Attentive enough but let us enjoy your meal. We did restaurant week set menu and top to bottom the food was amazing. The flavors of our meal the meatballs the lamb and the braised short rib were so good. We typically don’t order dessert but with it being included of course. My husband had the butterscotch with was just sweet enough and paired well with the ice cream. We sat upstairs with the live jazz which just upped the atmosphere.

It was more money than I usually spend going out without my husband however, the food was delicious, the service excellent and my friend and I were able to talk without hearing conversations from other tables.

Highly recommend the Lobster Bisque. The Short Rib Stroganoff actually had tons of meat in it which in many restaurants the meat is scarce. The short ribs were so tender and flavorful. Actually tasted like lamb which I love!

An awesome experience.

From the minute you walk in the door, you are treated with the sincerest quality. Living with cealiac disease makes eating out tricky. However, the menu was labeled, the server was knowledgeable, and I was able to order and eat without worry! The food was delicious.

Food was well-prepared, as usual. Service from Brian and the rest of the team was great!

Restaurant Week menu was a bit pricey at $40 for 3 courses. Even most restaurants for Baltimore RW are less than that. So we opted for the regular menu -- still pricey, but again well-prepared.

The one disappointment was the new "French-style" pots de creme: A lot smaller than the original Belvedere version, with only 1 (vs. 3) types of chocolate. Definitely not ordering that again, so will have to make the original at home (unless they decide to bring the old version back?)

What a treat! Ambiance is jazz upstairs, old Hollywood downstairs, very appealing! Service was amazing, food was spectacular. Try the grilled Caesar salad, original and delicious, even the petite portion is shareable. Had the filet, cooked perfectly, tender and flavorful. Other diners had the crab cake, was large and fresh, the real deal. We will go back, even just for cocktails upstairs with the piano and trumpet player, great vibe!

This is our second time at the Belevedere. We were underwhelmed by the service the first time, so hadn't returned for several years. We were glad that we gave it a second try. The food was great and the service was wonderful this time around. It was a nice place for a date night, as were celebrating an anniversary. The gave us complimentary champagne and even had a personalized card on the table for us upon arrival. We will definitely return.

My wife and I are thrilled that chef Daniel is now at the Belvedere! The food was amazing the presentation was absolutely top-notch. The only complaint was that we had a smattering of mashed potatoes underneath the meat which were cold when they were served to us. They were, absolutely delicious however.
The Belvedere has always been one of our favorite places over the last 15 years and will continue to be one of our favorite places! Welcome aboard, Daniel!

Our waitress was excellent, I believe her name was Lindsey. Our meals were excellent, pricey but excellent! The room had a very sour kind of odd smell when we were seated - later when the mussels were delivered to our table we realized that's where the odor was coming from - someone else must have ordered the mussels, otherwise the ambiance was great. We had a lovely evening.

We were there celebrating our Anniversary, I thought it was awesome how both the host and our server wished us a Happy Anniversary. Secondly our food was amazing, my wife and I both had Steaks and they were cooked to perfection. I really don’t think I have had a steak so tender. Lastly we made reservations and didn’t have to wait very long for our food. Thanks for helping make our event a special one.

Food and service are exceptional. Clearly the staff is well trained and the expectations are understood so no matter who you have as your server, you are assured a good experience. Only issue is space - and I get it, the building is old. But you can't help but feel packed in whether at the bar or dining areas.

I even commented to my wife during dinner that the noise level was perfect for conversation, no music. I know this is a glowing review, but it was As good as advertised.
