    We live in Jersey and Greenfield’s is still one of our all-time favorite places! Classy, restored old farmhouse with consistently delicious food, great staff and beautiful surroundings…what more can I say! The live background music was wonderful last night!

    The salmon dip was amazing. The sangria and maple cinnamon old fashioned were flavorful and strong. The service was good, courteous and hte food moved well from one course to another. For the price my husbands seafood linguine was a very small portion but good. My scallops were cooked very well however the mushroom risotto with corn was underwhelming in flavor and texture. All in all for the price there are better restaurants in Lancaster.

    A party of 4 had scallops, the Scottish Salmon and a beef fillet. All of the food was wonderful, presentation excellent . Staff was attentive without being invasive. We never felt rushed and the space and atmosphere was lovely. Our friends had never been to Greenfield, and were impressed! It was our birthday(s) treat to them. It may well become our special birthday go to spot! Highly recommend! Thank you, Deborah Gobel

    Our table was adjacent to a window and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree! Very festive ambiance. Service was slow at first but then perfectly paced throughout the meal. For appetizers, we shared the shrimp cocktail (which had truly JUNBO shrimp), short rib egg rolls and clams casino. All were delicious. For main courses we enjoyed the Scottish salmon, pork schnitzel and the John Dory (fish of the day.). Everything was outstanding. Our dinner party was unilaterally thrilled. For wines, we definitely recommend the Pull Cabernet Sauvignon and the Zolo unoaked Chardonnay. Such a lovely evening. We will absolutely be returning to The Greenfield.

Appetizer, salads, main course, dessert as well as cocktails and wine were all excellent. It was a great addition to complete the evening in the cocktail lounge listening to the piano!

    We've been dining at the Greenfield Inn for many years and have never been dissatisfied with the food, the service,or the ambience. I've tried many different items on the menu and liked all of them. Their crab cakes are a favorite of mine.

    We did not have a very good experience at the Greenfield. Rolls were hard and stale, salad was wilted, and there was an EXTENSIVE wait between our salad and entrée service. My husband and I both ordered swordfish which was a special that night. Fish was warm but pasta and vegetables were cold. Our waiter was literally running to try to accommodate all of the tables he was assigned to - he did his very best, but he had too many tables to give adequate service to, let alone good service. A very disappointing dining experience for us.

    We eat here frequently so i would guess we are happy based on that evidence! We eat at high top tables in the bar, served by the bartender and sometimes that can affect service slightly when he is busy. On this occasion all was well with my only complaint that rolls were far from fresh and hard to split/chew for that reason. Maybe my first negative comment ever at this establishment. Go! Enjoy!

    Read the reviews and they seemed great, so we gave it a shot. Delicious and well prepared dinner. My wife had the French onion and I had soup of the day which was crab soup. The wife had the salmon dinner and I had the fish of the day which was swordfish with zucchini, roasted red peppers, egg plant and carrots. For dessert we shared the lemon tart. All was very tasty and even took leftovers home. Will come back when we visit Lancaster again.

    Table was set up for us in a very pleasant manor and we were even seated about 15 mins prior to our scheduled reservation. I was a bit apprehensive being from Baltimore and although we were the only African Americans throughout the whole restaurant (including staff) we were treated no differently and with the upmost respect. Waiters and management checked on us often to make sure we were pleased with the service and one waitress even complimented my girlfriend and I’s attire. Food was great and the ambiance was perfect. Definitely recommend but reservations are definitely a must!

    The food was expertly prepared. In fact, the Catch of the Day, halibut, was beautifully cooked and the best I’ve had in years. The scallops were also very good and the crab cakes nicely seasoned. The service was excellent, of course. It was a very nice experience, but…. And that’s exactly how I rated the food. The food was very good, but…. There was no wow. Yes, the halibut was beautifully cooked, but the beurre blanc sauce was too delicate, the polenta was, well, just polenta. Perhaps the point was to let the halibut shine in its own way, unbridled from herbs or heavy sauces. It did. It also seemed a little safe, and that’s where the ‘but…’ comes into play. In the end, the meal was enjoyable and I would return to dine, but it probably wouldn’t be my first choice.

    It was a busy night and they were short staffed. We completely understand that that impacted service and the entire team clearly tried to help out (hostess was serving patrons as was the manager). But dinner took over two hours which is excessive and the food was ok - not exceptional. Would have completely overlooked the delays if the food had been amazing but it wasn’t. We would return ….but we’re not in a hurry to do so.

    First off, I was disturbed that although I had reservations for 3 people, they apparently didn’t know where to put us and we had to wait over 15 minutes. Once seated in the corner of a tiny upstairs room, it took another 10 minutes for water. Our drink orders took 15 minutes and a Manhattan delivered barely covered the massive ice cube. We begged a different server for tough rolls. When food was served, it was fortunately very good. Everything took forever. We’ll not return.
