My husband and I had been there for dinner before and had great service. We took friends with us this time and really talked it up...problem is we were seated and then forgotten. We had to flag a server down to place our order once seated. We were just a little embarrassed because we had just got done saying how great everting on our previous visit.

The food was delicious and the ambiance was different from the norm. The cost was a little pricey but I feel all fine restaurants currently are pricey. The cost for a glass of wine is what bothers me the most. Wish we would have known about the fire pit outside earlier--we could have stayed and engaged in conversation longer. Maybe next time!

The food was not great. My steak was under cooked and the scallops were sandy. Not a good meal. Also we sat near the kitchen and it was very noisy. Would not eat there again.

I enjoy Per Diem. It is a needed addition to the Lititz area food scene. Continue to wish that it offered a few simple choices such as a grilled chicken entree or sandwich. Not as trendy as most of their fare but needed by diners (like me) who have food allergies/intolerances.

Service was wonderful. Our server was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The food was delicious. Presentation was beautiful. We had the vegan sausage and riced cauliflower. I definitely recommend Per Diem.

We were there at 5:00 and the place was empty but we were seated at a tiny round table situated between other tables; clearly not conducive to conversation, and glasses and plates were not cleared so that made it worse. The risotto was fabulous but everything else was just so-so. I don't think I will be back anytime soon.

Had excellent service and our food was delicious. The egg on the Caesar salad is perfect and the scallops with bacon jam are so wonderful. We got a chefs special dessert, pumpkin s’mores ice cream sandwich. It was very frozen, but very good. Really enjoyed our meal!

Outstand. Absolutely outstanding. I literally cannot think of another thing that would make this better. Those were the best scallops I've ever had, both in cooking technique and flavor profile. That bacon jam was outstanding, and the risotto was top notch.

Inventive menu. Brussel sprout appetizer was very good. Quality and taste of the food was good and the right amount portion wise rather than being excessive

We had reservations and it wasn’t very crowded when we arrived.. However, we were seated in the back of the restaurant close to the kitchen where we heard all the shouts and food prep discussions. Also, the sun was shining right in my face for most of the time we were there and there was nothing that could be done. The chairs were very uncomfortable as well and slipped on the floor like they had wheels on them. A diner next to us also commented on the fact that it was so slippery. For the cost of the meals and drinks, the whole experience was very disappointing.

Had scallops with risotto. Scallops were good. Three medium size sea scallops. Could've used four. Risotto not so good. Rice was undercooked and risotto was runny. 3.5 stars would be more accurate.

Other than the food, service was good. Waitress was friendly and attentive. I really find the chairs uncomfortable though. Too small and low to the ground. Also we were seated in a spot with sun shining directly in one diner's eyes. The restaurant was fairly empty. Staff should be more aware.

Had family in from out of town and had a great meal! Food was a little slow to come out but it didn’t really matter as we were in no rush. Our only complaint is round tables and lack of privacy between parties.

Enjoy this change of pace restaurant in Lancaster County. Love the focaccia bread! I am dealing with food restrictions due to an autoimmune disorder so few choices for me on the abbreviated menu. Would love to see a simple chicken entree among the more trendy entrees.

A limited menu but with at least two very good pizza selections. The tuna tartar, which I had as an appetizer, was possibly the fattiest tuna I've ever seen.
Overall, not what we expected, but now knowing what to expect, we'd try it again for the pizza.

Excellent modern and trendy space in the Rock Hotel with a good wine list and beer selection and a limited, but excellent menu of food and appetizers and pizza. Service is excellent and there is seating on the covered patio for those who prefer to dine in an open air setting.

Would have liked to have had healthier options on the menu. People want to eat healthier foods i.e., Organic, fresh ingredients. The server didn’t seem to have any flexibility in how our meals were ordered. Server should be more familiar with items on menu (have tried them and able to recommend). The atmosphere was well done but a little dark & industrial feeling.

Nice vibe. Good addition to area but food so salty (both mine and my wife’s) I would hesitate to return. Suggest cocktail bar only.

Good atmosphere, fun environment. Waitress was chewing gum throughout our meal from explaining specials to taking our order to serving our food. Clearly, this is inappropriate at a fine dining restaurant for sure. Cocktails were very good, but our appetizers and entrees were just ok. Not bad by any measure, just not special. The tuna
