    The whole experience of the Greenfield was wonderful. They were kind enough to accommodate us even though we came in shortly before closing. The receptionist, and server chief were all wonderful. The food was delicious and served with skill and a wonderful demeanor. I would certainly recommend the Greenfield restaurant to anyone. Wonderful! Susan S.

    Seated for an early dinner in lounge that has a warm ambiance but situated between the only other guests & a piano. This limited privacy & was disruptive as the pianist set up in midst of experience. Bar service was slow. Our drinks did not arrive until after appetizers. The bartender seemed more concerned with daily set up. Food was good but not delicious.

    This special occasion restaurant never disappoints. We were seated promptly in accordance with our reservation time plus a greeting card from the staff awaited us congratulating us on our anniversary. The appetizer of short ribs was exquisite served with a house made spice ketchup. Our entrees of Salmon and the catch of the day (Black Bass) were in a class of their own. The accompanying vegetables were perfectly prepared and pleasantly presented. Our server Kim was very attentive but not overly lurking about. Other team members randomly checked on us as well throughout the meal. We have had similar experiences such as tonight simply sitting in the bar area having lite fare and cocktails. The Greenfield's list is extensive and the bartenders create classic cocktails. In today's age of chain cookie - cutter restaurants, the locally-independent owned Greenfield is a gem and one worth our continued patronage.

    The ambience, the server, the jazz trio, the food, all amazing! Loved it here! It was actually a suggestion from the app- Open Table! Everything was delicious! Best French Onion soup I ever had! The only complaint I would have is the corn risotto that the scallops dish comes with taster a little “floury” as if the rue wasn’t cooked down fully. Other than that, everything was exquisite! Highly recommend.

    Chef Moeller and his team did a fantastic job with the food and the wife and I had excellent entrees and deserts. The service was good and the server was friendly although after ordering the server left the two menus on the small two-person table until we requested they be removed. Also, the server forget to return our credit card with the bill, but later rushed back and returned it. These were all training issues regarding attention to detail, but the overall experience was very good and the food was excellent. The unexpected bonus that Saturday night evening, 03/30, was a very good trio of musicians that sang songs from the 1920s through the '30s. "It had to be you" comes to mind from 1924. We will certainly recommend The Greenfield and dine there again in the future when in the Lancaster area.

    We have gone to the Greenfield Restaurant for many years. It has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Lancaster County. Outdoor dining is outstanding on their patio. Celebrated many birthdays, graduations and wedding receptions here. Last night's meal and service were excellent as well as the piano player. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a 9.5. No one id perfect.

    I have been a customer of the Olde Greenfield Restaurant for years. My family, friends and I always have an amazing time with great food, good friendly service, in a beautiful setting. Over the years, we have celebrated many wonderful family events and holidays at the Restaurant and it is definitely our 'go to restaurant'. I would recommend the Restaurant to both local residents as well as folks visiting the area. Thank you!

    It’s the little things that make it a pleasant dining experience - linen tablecloths and napkins, doilies under the soup bowls, carefully arranged tables to allow for private conversations, pleasant atmosphere, especially in the summer with its low walled stone patio, sheer curtains and lovely flower filled containers and hanging baskets, not to mention the always beautifully and tastefully decorated entry gardens and flower pots.. it’s a perfect “go to” place for lunch, dinner or special occasions.

    We visited Greenfield restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Their attention to detail was wonderful. We had seafood chowder and French onion soup to start and it was delicious. Perfect temperature and the flavors were superb. My husband had salmon on a bed of vegetables and I had scallops as my entree. Both were amazing, the presentation was beautiful and portions were perfect. The apple almond tart was delicious. Definitely recommend!

    The service (hostess and waitress) was superb. The kitchen and bar must’ve been busy because the food and drinks trickled out a bit too slowly (not the waitresses fault) One main entree didn’t have one of the items that was listed in the specials and the other entree was slightly bland and slightly cooler than it should’ve been which might’ve accentuated the blandness. Chairs throughout the restaurant, while perhaps visually or aesthetically closer to period-correct…. They were very uncomfortable. The positioning of the chairs at the table and the table position in relation to the wall and other tables was awkward at best. Four out of five stars overall for this experience based solely on the pleasant and professional demeanor of the waitress. Better check on your chef and kitchen staff, though… something needs to be tweaked there. Also, I don’t think your furniture needs to look like it’s from the 1800’s… just get new chairs… make your dining guests comfortable… no one wants to go back to the discomforts of the old days… and if they do… let them travel time through the dirt.

    Another enjoyable experience. I had the halibut and my wife had crab cakes. We enjoyed both. I find the pairings at Greenfield to alway go well together which is something I especially look for. Service was adequate for a busy Valentines evening.
