Our waitress was nice and efficient until she disappeared and we found out she walked out. I think someone should of realized that and stepped in and took care of us for the remainder of our time.

We ordered well before other tables but I had to ask what was happening with our order. Other tables were severed well before us. I ordered a cheese board but it never arrived. I asked to speak to the manager and they never arrived. We were not charged for some of the food we ordered but I will never attend this restaurant again.

The menu change has less now, but I understand the transition to more of a bar experience. I loved the Brussels Sprouts.

We were hesitant after reading some reviews about the staff being rude but we’re glad we made the decision to go anyway. The staff was super friendly!! Multiple staff members came to our table during our dinner (as there was a pigeon trying to peck our feet) we didn’t mind it too much but they kept coming by to make sure everything was alright. They even brought us an extra dish! It was beautiful and the food was excellent. Will be returning!

It was a nice evening out the ambiance is what made us stay. I'd go again but with other plans to eat at another restaurant with more options.

Check-in on the first floor (private entrance off of Queen St) was easy. Rode the elevator to the 12th floor where we were greeted and seated outdoors. They had patio heaters to keep the fall chill away. Gorgeous view of the city. Lovely staff. Food was delicious and nice portions. Highly recommend it! We will definitely be back next time we’re visiting Lancaster.

After i did a quick online reservation via this app did they agree to seat us. No one even came after we entered! Too snobby for me.

It took at least 20 min for any waiter/waitress to come to our table after we were seated. Our drinks took forever to come out and no one came to ask if we needed another round.

Not an ideal dinner spot. If your going you gotta sit outside. If not for the beautiful view and rooftop experience this would just be an OK place.

The worst part was the service. I asked for wine with my dinner. I had two pieces of warm pizza before I got the glass of wine. My wife and I both sat with empty glasses for an extended period. When she did finally check on us we were done. The waitress at the table next to us provided water when the group sat down, told them about the restaurant week special and explained the menu. That would have been nice.

The ambience is also very nice except for the fact that when we visited there seemed to be a big problem with spotted lantern flies. They were buzzing all around and climbing on the windows. I know that wasn’t their fault, just making an observation. Music was a bit too loud to enable us to have a normal conversation. But I would go back.

Awesome ambience, noise level wasn’t too bad and they had a nice playlist on. french fries were extremely delicious and the exchange burger was divine. My wife had the pork sandwich and it was also incredible. Will definitely stop by here again. Not sure how busy they are on the weekends but there’s a great view up there for sunset, and the seating was very comfortable. Expect to spend around $75-$100 for a meal for two depending on how many drinks you get after tip. Overall loved it!
