The flank steak was excellent, served with pico was the best ever. Also had mushrooms ( a bit too salty) and the spinach was okay. The shrimp and scallops with pesto was very good.

Our meal was really good. My husband had the Neighbors special creole shrimp and I had the scallops and mushrooms and asparagus on chèese grits. We shared a house spinach salad that was more than enough for the two of us. For dessert we had the Mocha ice cream pie made with coffee ice cream on an oreo crust. The ice cream was at least three inches high and I think they must have given us a quarter of the pie. Our server was pleasant and efficient and we thought the prices were very reasonable for what we got. It was a very busy place and the noise level was pretty high but it was a good evening overall.

The service and food never disappoint. The only complaint I have is that the last few times we've visited there this summer, it has been extremely hot inside. It was so hot this past Saturday, that it felt cooler outside. It was hard to enjoy the meal when you're sweating.

Nice feel and good food, a little expensive. The main con was just that it was loud and so it was hard to hear our server, though he was really nice.

Four elderly cousins came down from Roanoke to spend the day with me and I had been telling them how lucky I am to live close to such a wonderful restaurant. They wanted to see for themselves so I made reservations and asked the hostess to make sure they were not given a check - that I would take care of the bill.

Needless to say, the matter was handled with such grace they didn't even have time to fuss. Jake was my waiter and he was fast, efficient, and professional. He also went the extra mile for one of the ladies who is on a strict no sodium diet.

The food was wonderful! They loved Jake and the neighborhood feel of the place. I'll be back today and so will any visitors I have.

p.s. I moved here from Atlanta last September where there are some of the best restaurants in the world but I think The Neighbor's Place could complete with any of my favorites.

Thanks for a wonderful dining experience!

Food was great, but server seemed a bit overwhelmed with the large party. Water was never refilled and server would leave table quickly before everyone could put in an order before happy hour ended.

My wife and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary here. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean, but the food was heavily overpriced. My wife enjoyed her salad, but the menu didn't have nearly as many pasta options as the advertising would lead you to believe. I was very disappointed with the small portion size of my meal ($26 for six very small lamb medallions and two meager sides). I don't plan to eat here again.

We had a great dinner cannot say enough about how good the food is there. Our server Joel was excellent she is the best that I have ever had as a server. The grits are awesome so thankful you added that to your menu. Will certainly be back again.

We had a good experience, but was a little offended that we received a message from Open Table that Neighbors Place had stated we failed to keep our reservation.

Our waiter was a young man who was working the bar area. This was the first time I’ve experienced this restaurant with someone else. The waiter made us both feel like we were at home and that if any point in time we needed anything he made sure that we had it. The drink specials on a Saturday are awesome! I would highly recommend this for any couple that wanted to go on a date! I even saw all the staff communicating with elderly people who frequent the restaurant by giving them hugs and seating them at their favorite place while they watch TV. I could not think of a better restaurant that has all of the facets needed to be excellent in Lynchburg. My only complaint is the timing of the food. The entrées came out before the appetizers. Normally, I would make a much bigger deal of this. But our entrées were fixed and served within five minutes of ordering. The appetizer was served within two minutes after the entrées. If you’re looking for a restaurant that gives you high-quality service, amazing staff, great food, and the overall experience, go to this one! Thank you again for making our date night amazing.

So many choices on the menu! We all enjoyed our lunch, everyone tried something different. A great place to gather a group or have a conversation. The outdoor deck looks like a fun place to gather as well.

Went for Mother’s Day and our table was ready 15 minutes before our reservation. Great waiter, great food! The only problem I had was that our table was awkwardly close to another table and I was kind of sitting back to back with a women who was at another table. Maybe this was just an issue because it was a busy day?

Food did not taste good and was cold. Steer clear of the lobster tail. Beers were flat, and when we told the manager all of this we still paid over $100 for our meal that we all barely touched.

Despite the high volume of customers (Kentucky Derby was happening) we were seated and served quickly, but not rushed. No problems with honoring a coupon we had as well. Tasty stuff, not a real low-cal joint but great for cheat day.

Good food, setting, and service, but nothing spectacular. I'd go again as its far better than the chain restaurants on Wards Rd, but the average review scores created an expectation that was not lived up to.
