                                        Having dined at many Michelin restaurants around the world, I would say there is much potential in this one. Creativity was its strongest strength. The combinations were artistic as well as theatrical. Molecular gastronomy shined through here. Felt the restaurant was testing out some interesting pairings. The location was not what you’d normally expect for this type of restaurant. We drove from Philly here. All in all, a memorable , fun, and adventurous experience. We will be watching to see the growth of Chef Rikuu and where he lands!

                                        For my wife’s birthday I searched for somewhere new that we could try. All the staff there was more than accommodating and friendly. The dinner and drinks couldn’t have been better. We can’t wait to go back!

                                        Overall, while I rated food and value less than perfect, the experience was outstanding! Why? Because the sommelier, Thierry, is FANTASTIC! We love it there mostly for his creative and masterful pairings. While it is in the small town of Lancaster, PA, his wine list is top notch. His knowledge and his passion for educating are in line with (or exceeding) what we have experienced in top michelin restaurants around the world. Thank you to the owners for valuing him and what he brings! He is worth it!

                                        Disappointing!..Where to begin?..lets see: Deco is ok. Nice,modern, pretty. Food portions are rediculously small. Extremely expensive for basically NO FOOD!..You pay for the dishes display!..and the weird plates presentation. So silly!..A fly was flying around my drink all the time. Nasty!..That's NOT acceptable in a "high end" place like this one. Servers interupting my conversation every minute offering drinks, asking how everything was going. Annoying!.. Also, a server sitting by my side all the time, making imposible to have a private conversation. So, NOT coming back!..Recommending NOT TO GO there.

                                        High touch with sophisticated ambiance. The experience was matched by interesting flavors and textures at each course. The wine selection was overwhelming, but inclusive of any taste.

                                        The best dining experience in Lancaster. The staff was attentive, but not overbearing, the Sommelier made amazing recommendations within my budget and didn’t try to sell me over what I was comfortable with. Then there is the food. It was as much theater as it was dining. Amazing preparation of top quality ingredients presented in a truly unique way. My only non 5 star sub section was value. It is worth every penny as a rare treat to experience food elevated, but I would not eat here regularly. That change menu quarterly, and that would be enough for me. 6 out of 5 stars for total experience.

                                        On our visit, the were offering a 5 and 9 course dinner or some of the courses could be ala carte. The biggest issue I had was that I was not expecting a "performance" meal. The food offered was very limited. Everything was prepared excellently (clearly the Michelin chef rating is earned!) but the menu was so limited that you really are compelled to get the 5 or 9 course price fixe. I enjoyed trying new dishes and most of the dishes were something I might have ordered ala carte but I prefer to select from a more varied menu and pick a meal I feel will go with a wine rather than have seafood and game mixed such that no wine would be perfect. Also, the meal was intended to tell a story so a lot of the price of the experience is in the story telling and special effects that come around the meal. I suspect the meal was 2x what it would have been without the "performance". This is something that one should know before going. I would prefer more of the cost going to food. The wine list (and sommelier) was excellent and priced as expected. The overall experience was enjoyable as the staff was excellent from the front door on through. I just was expecting something different and was not what I would normally pick.

                                        This was a top notch fine dining experience. I don’t get the chance to do this much, so I splurged on a special occasion and was really blown away. I’ve never had a dining experience like this before. First off, the food was outstanding. But the ambiance, staff, presentation, and creativity helped to put this dining experience on its own level. I’d highly recommend this to anyone, especially for a special occasion. Thanks so much for the great night out!

                                        I have been to this restaurant numerous times and each time it gets a bit less special and the service gets a little less attentive. The sommelier was fair at best. For a $400-$700 meal, definitely not worth it.

                                        A little too much effort put into the drama experience with the food being the "understudy" of this play. Definitely different...unique and weird.

                                        I took my wife here for a birthday, and the staff made it a truly memorable experience. It is a very pricey restaurant, but you get what you pay for: service, quality, cleanliness, and raw sensory experience are unequaled by any other restaurant I've seen. The venison dish served to me wasn't simply the best venison I ever had, it was the best food I ever ate. If a group of artists decided to crosstrain in fine cuisine, you would get Amorette. Highly recommended!

                                        Stunning restaurant in Lancaster! It was like being at the French Laundry, but better. Gabriel and Sean and all of the staff were fantastic in explaining the options and making sure we enjoyed our first experience there. Would highly recommend this for a dinner experience and food that you will never forget.

                                        Very pretentious, over-reaching to a fault. Too many “rules” - every person in the party must order from the same menu - $200 or $100 tasting menu or a la carte menu which had only 3 entree options. The server brings a needle out to the table and holds it there while we stare bewildered and “injects” the quail egg with herb oil. Asked for bread and we were informed they were not serving a “bread course” this evening. We love fine dining and have no issue paying for the experience however this was a chef trying way too hard to be in the scene and unfortunately we won’t be back and will not recommend our friends to dine here.
