The atmosphere is nice. People were friendly. Pot pie was good. The Cosmopolitan was pretty bad but the pomegranate martini was ok. Didn’t like it well enough that I would return

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.

Very disappointed because 2 main courses weren’t not available. And when we wanted to have more beverages like beers etc the bar was closed.

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.

Average food, no atmosphere, bad service and I also booked a patio table on Open Table and when we got there they said the roof top was closed for the season even tho it was 60 degrees last night.

It was moms night out!! It was just a beautiful setting for dinner. Really wanted to be outside. But inside was still nice. Service was good very sweet waitress. Drinks were amazing!! Love the special which was the Bees Knees my favorite!! Wedge salad was good and the cod with stuffed crab was delicious!! Sauce was very flavorful, creamy and everything was cooked perfectly. Also good size portions too which I appreciate!!

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.

My husband and I had a lovely time. Rode the elevator to the 4th floor where we were greeted and seated outdoors. (There’s only one elevator, so be patient.) Staff is friendly and attentive. The drink and food service is slow at times (of course, that’s to be expected for a Saturday night), but we didn’t mind since we were enjoying the lovely fall weather and we’re not in a rush to anywhere. Food was outstanding and nice size portions. Highly recommend it! We will definitely be back next time we’re visiting Lancaster.

My favorite part of this place was the ambiance of the roof top. Due to the fact that no one wants to get a job the service was good. You can see the wait staff was in need of more people at to no fault of Altana I’m sure. Wait staff was polite and helpful and did a good job. Apps and dinner were good as well.

Servers were very pleasant, but it took quite a while for our food to come out. Learned that there were only two servers working. Food was very good, but I had the golden tomatoes and it was Heavily seasoned with red hot pepper flakes. Was almost too much heat to enjoy. Out of the lemon dessert so we went to Barberet, which was Fabulous!! Ambiance was Fantastic, with a beautiful sunset. Overall 1st time experience was pretty great, in spite of all the “covid curse” hiccups. I think we’ll be back for a 2nd chance.😉
