About Maison - Lancaster

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.

Another fantastic meal at our favorite restaurant in the are. I have never had a strip steak as delicious as the one here. Ask to take some of Matt’s “famous chips” home.

What a fantastic place! And the owners are so accessible and wonderful to talk to. My only complaint is about the music. For such a romantic, sophisticated place , the music should be romantic and sophisticated too.
But we will definitely be back!

Every time we go to Maison, I think “it can’t be better than last time” but that has never once been true. Each and every time, the service, the food, everything about Maison has surpassed the bar they set. Plus, I’m always intrigued by what new foods I can try. Tonight we celebrated my birthday and I couldn’t have picked a better place. Favorite Restaurant by far!

Amazing, creative, tasty menu and friendly, attentive service. All items are a La Carte so you are able to make selections based upon your own tastes. The portion sizes are perfect for 1, satisfying but not excessive. The only reason I gave 3 stars on "value" is Maison charges for bread ($1) and corkage fee ($6), which feels like nickel-and-diming.
The menu changes regularly and offers something for every palette. The scallops were fresh and prepared perfect, the pork belly melted in my mouth, literally. We will continue to return to Maison, eat the bread and bring our own wine....because it is that good.

There was two of us. Casual-dress attire. At the end of the year we admit it was some of the best $100 (tip excluded) we’ve spent on appetizers, entree and dessert. Delicious, creative food with friendly, helpful, considerate help. It’s BYOB so we took advantage of that and brought some of our favorite wine. One couple even came in with a bottle and had appetizers and desserts. Smart, we’ll do that soon.

One of the best restaurants in Lancaster, food is always fresh and creative farm to table. Very small kitchen limits what they can do and results in a lot of pre-prepped food, like roasts. However, the the cuisine changes daily and is always excellent. Service is casual but knowledgeable and ambiance, if noisy, feels like a dinner party. It is BYOB bug there is no corkage charge. Highly recommended.

My husband and I went there for a nice date night before some Christmas shopping. We were able to take our own bottle of wine and enjoyed an amazing three course dinner. We were both EXTREMELY impressed by the portion sizes and how delicious the food was. I am so glad we tried it and will be returning very very soon!

Perfect to celebrate my wife’s birthday. A bit noisy but it adds to the experience. The service was wonderful. Seating was a bit close with small-ish tables but managed well by our server. The food was excellent and prepared in a unique blend that was very tasty and enjoyable. Sooo many flavors. Our only regret is that we waited so long to eat there!!!

This was such an amazing experience. My bf and I went to try out restaurants we have never been to. The menu is on the wall but they suggest taking a photo so you could see better. We decided to just try different dishes such as:

Handmade Burrata
Foie Gras Mousse
Goat Cheese.Pear.Bacon Tartine
Pan-Roasted Scallops

We loved everything but the Foie Gras which they ended up taking off the bill since we didn’t like and ended up getting a dessert.

The whole experience was relaxing and it was nice to have the waiters really know about the meals. My bf was impressed because he has never been to a nice restaurant and I was just happy because the whole experience thru and thru was excellent. We will definitely be going back.

We loved Maison! It's a small, intimate, peaceful space. The food was excellent and service top notch. It's BYOB for those who like that option. The menu is not extensive, but enough choices, and is written on a blackboard on the wall! We highly recommend this restaurant and would love to return to sample more from their menu.

Maison never disappoints. The food is always unique, interesting and delicious, both appetizers and entrees. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. It is a favorite and a place we love. The deviled eggs, the pear salad and racheleta were outstanding. The scallops over Brussel sprouts and the roast pork, pork sausage over mashed potatoes with a mustard gravy were amazing. The chocolate pot de cream was a perfect ending to a lovely dinner.

Our experience at Maison was absolutely, off the charts, amazing! We were greeted by a great host/waiter and sat immediately (we had a reservation). We love that the entire wait staff did all different duties and had more of a communal way of taking care of their guests. Loved the menu on the wall and the ambiance. and OF COURSE the best was the FOOD. great attention to detail. great portion sizes, etc.

As always the food and service was exceptional. The entrees are well crafted and absolutely delicious. The staff is very attentive and always ready to answer questions. If you bring wines ask the chef to taste them and recommend the appropriate dish. You will not be disappointed. This is a Michelin Star restaurant.

The interesting menu drew us to the restaurant. It was hard to decide what to order because everything sounded delicious. The chef prepared a vegetarian meal for me that was absolutely amazing. The presentation of the food was beautiful. I’ve already decided this is a “must return to” restaurant. And last but not least, the staff was friendly and very informative. Bottom line, a great evening!!!
