About

In its most simple form, we are in the business of feeding people.
A business that we love and take a great deal of pride in and
an act at the core of what it is to be human.

To us, there is nothing more satisfying than inviting you: our friends, family, farmers and neighbors into our home, nourishing you with soul satisfying food and allowing you to escape the rigors of daily life… if only for a short time.

We believe that passion, hard work and love all fall into the same category.
We have taken the dichotomy of ‘work life’ and ‘real life’ and distilled them into one—we live above the restaurant. The people we know and love are all around us, we share our home with them and couldn’t be happier about it.

We had an incredible dinner at Ma(i)son! We ordered nearly the entire menu because we couldn’t choose from all the delicious options! Each dish was better than the next! We are so glad we found this amazing restaurant during our trip to Lancaster. We’ve been to some of the top restaurants in the world and this restaurant is definitely up there! Thanks to the staff at Ma(i)son for an outstanding dinner! We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Lancaster!

Maison exemplifies a farm to table approach to dining that remains simple and accessible while elevating the ingredients through technique. The best of the best in Lancaster, with the service to match.

Great food but the service was not the most attentive.

To be more specific, we made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance and the only time that was available was 8:30 PM. A little on the later side for my personal liking, but we heard great things, so we went ahead and booked it. We show up at 8:30 and the place is maybe 50% full. Not sure why we couldn't get an earlier time, but oh well, the place is a good atmosphere and the food that other people were eating looked great. We order a few appetizers and they open up the wine we brought (the place is BYOB).

The food was great and we kept on ordering more and more plates to share. However, our waiter kept on going to the back to hangout with the other staff and we never saw them. It got to a point where it was only us and another table in the place and we had not seen the waiter for maybe 15 to 20 minutes. Both our table and the other table started talking to each other how we had not seen anyone in a long time, so we ended getting up three different times to walk to the back and ask for the waiter to help us (once so we could order our entrees, once to ask for the check and then once more to ask him to pick up our cards so we could pay).

Again, the food was great and maybe we just ate there on an off night, but the service could have used some improvement.

I have been a fan of Maison for a long time and they never disappoint. Their menu is on a chalk board with 5-6 options, but they are willing to modify as needed. I am a vegetarian and they love to stretch their imagination and come up with a dish that is always amazing. The service is outstanding and ambience very cozy. Make sure you make reservations in advance since they have very limited seating and it always fills up.

Delicious food in an intimate setting. The waitstaff were a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. The only caution that I’d share is that due to the intimate setting, don’t be surprised if people at other tables start talking to you. We enjoyed it but others may not if they’re expecting a quiet meal.

As always the food and service were wonderful. The pork entree was perfectly prepared as was the chicken dish. The appetizers of fried pig ears and paddlefish caviar were superb.

This is a not to miss dining experience in the area.

I had high expectations based on glowing reviews. I was disappointed. The crispy artichokes were not trimmed and mostly inedible. The butter poached cod was too salty. The gnocchi was simply seasoned with a cream sauce.

We had a fantastic meal at Maison. Wonderful service, charming atmosphere and the food was outstanding. We loved the gnocchi with bacon & seasonal vegetables! It was a little more noisy than I expected, but I think that was because the large front door was open while there was a idling bus parked outside right in front of the restaurant, causing everyone to talk just a little louder. Unfortunate, but it certainly wouldn't keep me from returning! Can't wait to see what's on the menu next time!

What a find! And what a gem! Tiny place, so reservations are essential. Menu is equally tiny (and changes frequently, based on what fresh ingredients are available), but is creative, local, flavorful, innovative. Our dinners were spectacular. Service was attentive, accommodating, spot on perfect. I am anxious for a repeat visit.
