The Greenfield Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
First visit to this restaurant and it came highly recommended. We were seated on the second floor which doesn’t provide much ambiance. It was busy and the wait time for our main course was quite lengthy. The server said they were backed up because of a big group but we would have our meal shortly, not like 20 or 25 minutes. As it turns out it, it was at least that amount of time. We were also told that the meal that my wife ordered (Red Snapper) was he last one and he was getting it. She ended up with Halibut.
The meal was very good but the wait time was extensive. A glass of wine or free dessert would have been a nice offering. I can only attribute this to the Valentine’s Day weekend. We will give it another try.
Very disappointed in the Greenfield Inn. Hostess did not welcome us and was not friendly. Waitress was mediocre at best. She looked like she could care less about serving us, which she did terribly and when asking how our food was, she walked away before we answered. Caesar salad was soaked in Caesar dressing and lettuce was not fresh. Dinner was nothing special for the high price of the entree and our coffee was luke warm at best. Waitress did not make the correct change for our bill but we were so annoyed by our experience, we didn't care and left. Such a disappointment for our first time there and for our date night.
We were here on a Saturday evening before going to the AMT show. We had a 5 pm reservation (opening time) and were seated promptly. My wife had the petit filet which she found to be excellent. I had the prime rib, which was also very good. The ambiance and drinks from the bar were excellent. We had a "cream puff" for dessert. It was not like the traditional cream puff, but had ice cream and lots of whipped cream. It was excellent. The service was outstanding. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
My husband and I don’t get a lot of alone time so I was very excited about dining at The Greenfield Inn for our date night. I got the crab cakes, that were done to perfection, moist and full of crab meat. My husband got the filet, done just right, juicy and a pink center. The sides were also great. We had a nice, quiet table, and our server did a great job.
My husband and I recently ate here for our wedding anniversary. I requested the wine cellar seating and was thrilled I did. There's only two tables and it's such an intimate and romantic setting. The service was incredible, the servers were extremely attentive. The food and cocktails were delicious! I really enjoyed everything about it.
This restaurant has fantastic food. We were seated by the piano and the Christmas tree...very beautiful. The owner came out and chatted with us like her knew us. We felt like family. This was one of the best dining experiences we have had so far. I can't wait to go back.
A little disappointed that we could not get a seat in the wine room as requested but the rest of the restaurant is very nice ,as well as quiet.
Onion soup was amazing,and so were the crabcakes.My husband got scallops and was very happy with them.
also had a really good Long Island Iced Tea
Would definetly recommend
We had arrived at the Hampton Inn during a snowstorm and were looking for a place to have dinner that was close by. We found The Greenfield on Yelp and realized that it was within walking distance! Not knowing what to expect, we walked through the gently falling snow and arrived at this cozy restaurant that was beautifully decorated for the holidays. We were escorted to our table where we enjoyed a really delicious meal in a quiet dining room -- exactly what we needed after a long day of driving. The four of us all enjoyed our food very much, served by a very capable server. It's a great place that we will definitely visit again if we are ever back in Lancaster.
This restaurant is one of our favorites. We like the bar/ porch area. Very nice piano music Friday evening. The menu is very nice, great wine list and a few good value cellar bottles. I had the special catch of the day stripped bass which was excellent. Friend had crab cakes, other two had salmon and scollops. All excellent. Restaurant was very busy so service was on the slow side but ok.
Had reservations for 630 after attending the Miracle of Christmas. We arrived by 6 and they sat us is a nice room. Service and food was excellent. We traveled 2.5 hours to see the show and the restaurant came highly recommended. When we are out in Lancaster again will definitely return. Had a great meal and wonderful time with great friends!
Overall the restaurant was very pleasant our server was the the most polite person in the restaurant. My potatoes were cold but my salmon was exceptable. My guest enjoyed her sandwich so no reason to return my potatoes.
The atmosphere was lovely and open.
Overpriced for what we received.
We visited for the first time, ate in bar area. Very cozy and warm. Music was not overpowering, it was easy to have a conversation. Good selection of appetizers, small plates, entrees and drinks. Food was cooked very well and delicious. Just a great place to sit, talk, drink and eat!
My wife and I went there for our anniversary. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar for an hour before our reservation. We were seated overlooking the bar room on the 2nd level, which we thought was pretty cool. Light piano music played in the bar room made it more romantic. Food and service were great. I definitely recommend the crab cakes.
