Set in a 1780 Pennsylvania Stone Farmhouse with deep windows and a warm pleasant atmosphere this is a family owned and operated restaurant that is recognized as one of the Best of Lancaster for dinner, Sunday Brunch, patio dining, wine list, atmosphere and romantic settings. Although our building is over 225 years old we update our menu daily! Change is a good thing at the Greenfield. We specialize in next day delivery of seafood while we continue to cut our own steaks. You will enjoy selections from our wine list that has been recognized by the Wine Spectator Magazine for over 9 years. Our patio and balcony over looking the bar is among our customers favorite requests for lunch and dinner seating, while the wine cellar has two of the most romantic tables in the area. If you are traveling, this is one of those restaurants that you wish you had back home....and we are happy that you found us.

The Greenfield is a charming restaurant and I was happy to be there again. It was my husband's birthday and it was just a perfect evening.

I brought some out of town guests for lunch and they were really impressed. They each had a combination that included the quiche and said it was the best they ever had. The service was very good. We will definitely be back for dinner.

Service was great. All the food was prepared and presented well. My wife had a filet with the potato du jour . She didn’t care for the flavor of the potato. I had pork schnitzel with spaetzle, Brussels spouts, and other things. I would have preferred the spaetzle to have been separate from the Brussels sprouts etc. But these are personal preferences. Overall an enjoyable evening.

Three of us had the specials - halibut and pork schnitzel. both were dry/overcooked and the kitchen ran out of the original starch - risotto. The one who ordered the special salmon was very pleased. Wish that the outdoor dining was offered on Open Table or that the website says "Call for outdoor dining reservations." We didn't know it was available until we arrived.

The busboy was a bit too attentive, almost hovering on our every move and asking to take items away with which we we not finished. Not a big deal, but he may want to scale it back.

Awfully generic experience and food. Terrible ambiance in the downstairs dining room. Menu for lunch is uninspired and circa 1992 country club. Will not return.

One of the most tender filets I've had. My husband's scallops were outstanding. The short rib egg roll appetizer was very tasty but could use a little more cheese and onion. Great cocktails! Our server, Kim, was perfect. The new owner/chef has made some needed updates both inside and out. Very nice live piano music in the bar and it should be piped in to the other rooms.

Fantastic meal as always. My wife had the Seafood Linguine which is her favorite and I splurged on 2 Lobster Tails. Tails were good size (7 oz. each). Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. Also got the cheese board to kick off the meal paired off with a couple glasses of wine. We love this restaurant for upscale American Food that doesn't feel pretentious.

John & Zach are great to see every time. If it's good enough for The White House, it's good enough for us, lol.

Honestly, check this place out.

We enjoyed every part of our evening! The place is charming and you are greeted with beautiful landscaping! Nice ambiance inside as well. We loved the French onion soup & warm, crusty rolls. My petit fillet minion was cooked just right and practically melted in my mouth!! My husband loved his salmon, and our potatoes and vegetables were very tasty! We split cheesecake… ❤️

There look was wonderful the outside and the restaurant below the food was fantastic and service to die for however the heat inside upstairs was unbearable we where sweating eating how uncomfortable was this. The waiter had to keep telling us he was sorry carrying a rag to wipe his forehead. Not a good look for a nice restaurant.

My Salmon meal was done to perfection and presented nicely. Their were 5 of us and everyone was very pleased with their meals. We were all very happy when we noticed that the menu has finally changed. Hostess and waitress were very pleasant and very efficient at their jobs. Always a pleasure dining at The Greenfield.

We had a lovely dinner at Greenfield. The service was crisp but the scallops were not. Better sear on scallops would have created a ;ess mushy dish. Also the corn was scarce.
DH had spaetzle which was good. Everything was fine but not over the top delicious! I wouldn't rush back

It was very nice. The food was very good. The service was good. Very pleasant staff. There was a hold up somewhere with drink refills during the meal. In fact we were finished with our entree and ordered dessert before the drink refill finally came out. Also, the glass was taken with wine still in it and more wine in the bottle on the table. However, the food was so good we will return and try it again.

Beautiful setting and great "date-night" ambiance. Service was well intentioned and attentive. However the dinner salad gave the impression of having been plated hours before, and was made up of limp and soft greens. The lamb was done perfectly, but accompanying vegetables had no flavoring. The scallops arrived in a lovely presentation but the risotto under them was pasty (again suggesting preparation was at least hours prior to plating) and the entire entrée was bland - tasteless. Such a beautiful place to dine, but the food was disappointing. This is the first Lancaster restaurant review I have written where comments about the food were less than very positive. We will try lunch sometime in hopes that the simpler meals may be tastier and have a "just prepared in the kitchen" character. The pecan pie was delicious by-the-way.

We found the Greenfield Restaurant to be an excellent choice to enjoy a fine dining experience. The decor of the dining rooms are refine, comfortable and most pleasing. The best part, however, is the well prepared food. We enjoyed our orders of French onion soup, fresh tossed salads and our 10oz grilled rib eye steak with tobacco onions, bordelaise sauce, fresh vegetables & potato du jour and our 6oz grilled petite filet mignon with fresh vegetables & potato du jour, both prepared perfectly as ordered. For dessert, we shared an in house prepared custard based sweet. We must note that our server and her assistant were most efficient and attentive.
