Interesting menu selection. All items were described in great detail by our waiter. Salads, soup and small plates were delicious. Lamb entree had great flavor, but a little tough. Still very good. Will definitely return. The service was outstanding.

Loved everything about our experience. It would have been nice to be informed prior to the evening that it was a price fix menu and what the price would be. We loved it nevertheless!

For our first time at the restaurant we were so happy with everything. The server Henry was by far the best server we've had anywhere in Lancaster county. The food also was amazing. I tried things I didn't ever think I would and to my surprise I really enjoyed it. I would recommend the restaurant to everyone. The price is worth it. We will he going back!

Food was great - but would have preferred to know it was a set menu with a set price. Was worth it, just surprised.

The service was great, both at the bar and at our table. The food was fine. I’m from out of town and read so many great reviews, so maybe there was too much hype for the food to live up to. I would come back and give them another try as their menus are interesting.

We had a nice evening at John J Jeffries. Both our meals were prepared very well. Our waiter was fantastic. We weren’t in the main dining room, so atmosphere suffered a little. The pace was a little quick, so it didn’t feel like we had much time to sip our wine and enjoy the evening out.

We chose this restaurant for our Valentine's Day dinner. I liked the healthier options of grass-fed meats from local farms. The menu had a good variety of dishes with a vegetarian option. Everything I had from the beet & lentil salad to the French press coffee and flourless chocolate cake was absolutely delicious. The only thing I would change is an option for more private seating. The tables were very close together, so noise and privacy of conversation were a slight issue.
