    We have lived in Lancaster for 20 years and I determined years ago Belvedere was one of our favorites ! We don't eat out a lot in Lancaster so I've probably been here maybe 10 times. So I took my wife here before the premiere of the Downton Abbey movie - what can I say ? They just never disappoint! Food is always amazing!!! Wow ! Wow! Wow! Its still on the favorite list!!

    Loved the building, decor and ambiance. The lobster bisque was the redeeming grace. I looked forward to the filet , having reviewed the menu prior to my visit I already had everything planned for my dinner visit and had budgeted for the perfect soup, entree and desert. As I stated before the soup was amazing. However, the steak was over cooked and mediocre. I watched the bartender bring my plate out and walk around with it, sit it on the bar and then take it back to the back from which my server emerged with the plate in his hand . The server said my table was in a new spot recently set up and the bartender did not know where to take the fish! I did not send the steak back because I just don’t tend to send things back but because of my disappointment with the filet I decided to forgo the creme brûlée I had prepared to get for desert and leave without further disappointment. For the price, the filet should have been perfect.

    We booked this restaurant without knowing anything about it. We had tickets for the David Foster concert at the American Music Theater and so many restaurants are not open on Sunday so we just chose this one because it was. We were so pleasantly surprised! It had ambiance, service was wonderful, the food was excellent. Elizabeth was our waitress aides by Ryan. They never made us feel rushed and we probably stayed a bit longer than most guests as we we were 4 women getting out for an evening. The wine was delicious and the desserts were to die for. It was also very convenient for the show. If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would.

    The food & cocktails were great. The service was also impressive. My only complaint was it was ridiculously loud because a larger party near us was clearly drunk. It made it difficult to hear the people at my own table…

    We were greeted and seated promptly for our reservation. Service was excellent and the halibut and chicken entrees were plated and served perfectly. The downstairs dining room is a bit dark and the tables small, but that did not take away from the enjoyment of the food or evening.

    I had the most delightful Mother’s Day dinner at the Belvedere! Our server, Jimmy, was absolutely top notch, his recommendations were spot on and he made us feel like we were his only table. The food is always delicious and this meal was no exception. I highly recommend the filet mignon - it melts like butter in your mouth.

    We had a great time celebrating Mother’s Day! The service was amazing, Jimmy made great recommendations and was overall attentive and witty. The staff was accommodating and sat us earlier than our reservation. The food is stellar! Portions are large and it’s worth the price. The lobster bisque and belvie bread are superb. Cocktails were fresh and balanced. Atmosphere is cozy with soft lighting and a lot of space between tables, definitely not over crowded. Will be back! Please visit and patronize this wonderful place.

    We dined at B Inn for the first time on Mother’s Day. We were seated promptly and Lindsay was our server. She was a delight, very pleasant and knowledgeable. We shared the mussels which could have been the main course and nothing else. One of the best recipes we have had hands down. I had the gnocchi and salad and my husband had the salmon. Both our meals were delicious. We shared a chocolate dessert that was also great. We will definitely be back again to enjoy another meal.

    Amazing service and food! Went for my wife’s birthday and would absolutely go again. Jimmy, our server made us feel special and provided top notch service and attention. Food was amazing. Scallop and grits was so good, like butter. Wife ordered the wahoo fish (special) and it was superb. Dessert was equally amazing glad we saved room. Wife loved their millliontini drink with truffle oil…I am drooling just writing this review. Will go again soon.

    Service is top shelf. 2 out of 3 of the dishes ordered were outstanding. We were originally seated near the bar which was too loud, but were graciously re-seated at a nicer table. Redecoration of this iconic Lancaster establishment did not work for us - too dark for old heads like us, but understandable that it needs to appeal to a new, younger crowd. Best wishes on this evolution.
