Nice place, overall. Food was well displayed but filet was not cooked as ordered, meat tough to cut, very salty. Drinks from the bar were eh—nothing spectacular. Everything else was excellent. Staff were extraordinarily friendly, personable. Disappointing in comparison to many top restaurants in the DC region—maybe I have too high of expectations.

Food and beverages were superb. Service was exceptional, prompt and professional. We were in the upstairs bar area and the music was a little loud for our conversation, but the server took care of it. The cost was a little high, but considering the quality of everything else, acceptable.
It is a great place for any special occasion.

Classy place, adult atmosphere, good drink menu. Great for a date night, special occasion, business dinner or mature family. Food quality was very good. I have been around so it takes a lot to wow me. I was not wowed but approaching.

We went to celebrate my daughter's 32nd birthday. We sat upstairs and it was just lovely. Will was our server and he was great. Food was amazing...the birthday girl and her boyfriend got the filet, my husband had the special ribeye and I had the scallops. We also had the charcuterie as an appetizer. To everyone at the Belvedere thanks for making the evening special!

The 3 of us had a very good dinner at the Belvedere Inn. We enjoyed the ambiance, and our service was excellent. Our main courses of chicken picatta, salmon and short ribs were tasty. We would recommend this restaurant and would return again in the future.

The entrees and starters have always been reliably good and plentiful.
We were somewhat disappointed with the escargots as they were prepared in a very non traditional manner.
The veal dish was excellent as was the drink from the bar (according to my 83 year old birthday guest)
I've recently returned to the area and was glad to discover that the Belevedere remains a good choice for special occasions in downtown Lancaster.
It will be interesting to compare the Belvedere's fare with other restaurants that have popped up downtown during my absence.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Belvedere to anyone.

From the moment we stepped in the door, everything was first class. They called ahead and found out our names then made a special anniversary card for the table. Wine was awesome, lobster bisque was the best flavor, bread good and lobster crab cake combo fabulous

Went for our anniversary and everything from be greeted with a big smile and everyone saying Happy Anniversary to the excellent food and service was amazing.
The lobster bisque was one of the best we have ever had. My stuffed lobster tail was cooked perfectly and my wife’s filet was one of the most tender steaks she ever had.
For a great fine dining experience and top-tier food, I highly recommend this establishment.

I made a reservation here for my wife’s 30th birthday.

Staff:

All very pleasant, polite, helpful, etc.
Every person we interacted with here was great.

Ambiance:

Quiet and intimate (sat upstairs). Later in the night they had a small band in the corner. Definitely added to the experience, wasn’t too loud and they were great.

Food:

Everything we had was excellent. Started with the lobster and crab dip, as well as the lamb chops. Both were delicious. We both had one of the specials. My wife had the lobster tail pulled out of the shell with a huge crab meat topper. It was paired with fingerling potatoes and asparagus. She loved it. I had the ribeye paired with a candied sweet potato and Brussels sprout with bacon. Cooked to perfection and delectable. For dessert, we ate the creme brulee and triple chocolate dessert. Both very good.

Drinks:

Tap water was fine. We never opt for fancier water. Had a few old fashions which were amazing and I was very happy they had Blanton’s available. My wife enjoyed a bottle of champagne and I finished her lavender drink which she didn’t like, but I thought was very good. Bailey’s on the rocks with dessert was good.

Prices:

What you’d expect for a restaurant of this caliber. Fair and definitely worth it in my opinion.

Overall:

We would certainly eat here again. Our experience was good from start to finish and we were very pleased with every aspect of our visit.

First time in 2 years to be back at the Belvedere Inn after the pandemic! We drive from Bucks County to go here! Food is always great and the service is great! Will probably be back to see how the owner decorates for Christmas! (always very nice!)

Lindsey was an amazing waitress. She took our order without writing it down. And hen spoke to another table. My husband and I took bets on how screwed up or meal would be for amusement since I asked for a couple of changes (sauce on the side and diff veggie side). Not only did our order come out perfect it was delicious. Never did we have to look for her for a refill of our wine or next course. She was on top of it as well as the food runners. The small grilled romain salad was the best salad I have had yet so simple. The veal was like butter. Never have I had veal that melted in your mouth. This meal from front of door entry to exit was worth every penny. The atmosphere was romantic and relaxing. My husband and I were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and I asked Lindsey if she knew him and if so would he bless our marriage. She did know him and she asked. But God forgive me I cannot remember his name, but he will always be known as Father Belvedere to us. So sweet. He came over and blessed our marriage and years to come. Evening was perfect. Thank you for the wonderful meal and service.
