I had the lamb chop (special) on Saturday evening. The lamb chop was very fatty. My 3 guests enjoyed their dinners.

My husband and I chose this exquisite restaurant to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. We enjoyed the staffs friendliness and especially our waiter Henry! Henry took the time to discuss the menu & was very patient with any requests that we had. The atmosphere was just the touch I was seeking for a romantic dinner. The food is delicious! We will definitely be back real soon.

One loud mouth at another table made the dining room 10X louder than the bar. Host should have asked to keep to keep bellowing at no more than loud rather than screaming loud.

The food was fabulous; wait staff excellent; champagne by the glass was flat and the wine list was very limited. We were on the second floor where a party of 15 generated a noise level was louder than a rock concert which destroyed the whole evening! When we mentioned our displeasure with the noise to the host/manager on our way out he could have cared less. We will NOT be back which is a shame because the food was fabulous.

Our new fave restaurant! The best lobster I've had in many years. Every dish was perfectly dressed and plated and delicious. The service was incredible! The only tiny criticism is it is so dark it is hard to read the menu. But that won't stop us from coming!

My party had a fantastic meal, great service and ambience. However, we both had gift cards. After presenting them with our meal we realized that our 2- year old gift cards were greatly diminished. My $40 card was worth $6.00! We both were surprised to say the least. I stopped at my regular Friday night watering hole and our server said that they always honor the amount of the card. I’ll return but will check any gift card I receive in the future.

THE FOOD AND COCKTAILS WERE EXCELLENT! IF YOU DESIRE A MORE QUIET (NORMAL NOISE LEVEL) DINING EXPERIENCE YOU MAY WANT TO REQUEST A TABLE ON THE FIRST FLOOR. WE ATE UPSTAIRS AND IT WAS EXTREMELY LOUD.

If you want to have a nice quiet dinner ask for the 1st floor dining. The 2nd floor has jazz groups playing and you can't hear yourself think. The food is terrific and a good wine list. The service was outstanding.

The staff at the Belvedere Inn went above and beyond to make my wife and I's anniversary dinner a one-of-a-kind dining experience. I informed them ahead of time that it was our anniversary celebration and we were pleasantly surprised to find our table adorned with a happy anniversary note card titled to us from the staff! Our server was friendly, attentive, and very professional. I would hands down recommend the Belvedere Inn to anyone traveling in the Lancaster PA area.

This was our first time at the Belvedere Inn. The service was fantastic. Overall, we had a lovely experience. We will be back.

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 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!

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.
