Reservation was made for the rooftop as there were no indications that the rooftop was closed. It even said if it rains, we can move you inside to the 3rd floor dining. However, when we got there and said we have a rooftop reservation, we were informed that it is closed for the winter season. There were also other parties there that made rooftop reservations. Food was good, except that apple and French toast does not pair well with the roast duck. Wait time was also too long.

Was given a gift buy our son to a bed breakfast in Lancaster . It was a great suggestion but he send us on new yrs eve . With no reservations any where to eat . So I started scrambling for places to eat and also dinner reservations that happened to be available. Came across Astana , small menu was a little concerning but time was a essence. So I booked it . And let me tell you everything was delicious from soup to nuts . Waitress was young but educated in the menu . Atmosphere and ambiance was perfect. If possible go with large group this way you can practically order the whole menu and try everything at one time . You will not be disappointed.

We had a great experience at Altana for dinner. The food and service were delicious and friendly. I had the crispy duck and several in our group had the chicken pot pie … everyone raved. The Christmas oldies sound track (Bing, Nat, Frank) put everyone in the spirit. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful dinner. The Crispy Duck is to die for and the spaghetti squash with impossible meat balls was extraordinary. This sophisticated space is beautifully decorated for the Holidays. Can’t wait to return.

Altana is my favorite restaurant in downtown Lancaster. The food and service are excellent, but what I really like is the ambience. The decor is tasteful and the soft surfaces help keep the noise level very low. Another great thing about Altana is that the menu has vegetarian options which, surprisingly, isn’t always the case at other establishments.

Celebrated the 2021 lighting of the Christmas tree at Altana with our family. Thought we would be outside, so that was a little bit of a surprise, but the place was lovely. The food was mostly delicious. My personal suggestion would be to make the shrimp scampi a little spicier and less sweet, but I ate the shrimp and my daughter snarfed the pasta... so nothing to waste! We would definitely return. It was super lovely and our server was appropriately friendly and efficient.

So fun! The decor is awesome and it is decorated for the holidays. The wait staff are smiling and make you feel happy to be there. The food is served quickly and is delicious. There are several vegetarian options. The Impossible Burger is the best I've had in Lancaster.

A wonderful evening with friends and great food! It was the night of the Extraordinary Give and it was SO COLD outside. Altana offered complimentary hot chocolate with toppings. What a nice touch and so comforting allowing us to enjoy the music outside.

Enjoyed the window seat! Thank you! Holly took care of us and offered her recommendation of bourbon drink and entree: shrimp scampi vs tomato bucatini- shrimp scampi it was! The pasta was al dente and had good flavor, the sauce was buttery and creamy, and the scrimp was cooked well and flavorful. The iceberg salad was a good starter and the French onion soup was salty and beefy - nice! Holly was attentive and always smiling, exercising good customer service - thanks for a nice evening.

This restaurant was new to us. We actually went for the view rather than the food but we were delighted to discover that the food is TERRIFIC! Because of the weather we were unable to sit outside, but the indoor restaurant below the roof deck was very stylish and comfortable. And the service was very good as well. Highly recommended!

My family and I had such a great experience at Altana last night. The service was very good, the waitresses was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and very well presented. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the rooftop since it rained all day but the experience we had inside made up for it.
