    The patio is a lovely place to have lunch! The food is delicious and the staff is fantastic! Even though they were all trying to balance a large party taking place on one half of the patio they were still attentive and so friendly! Love outdoor dining here!

    Food excellent as usual but especially love the talented keyboard artist of professional quality. He can play all decades and genres and especially good at jazz like Take Five and Pick up the Pieces. He’s a gem!!! I’ve booked a party there and Bryon and Jacob are easy to work with!

    This restaurant started out really great. Our server was friendly, drinks were good, and the music was enjoyable. Even the ambience of the restaurant is perfect. However, when our entree’s came out, it was very disappointing. I ordered the filet which came out looking like meatloaf. It had some kind of red sauce all over it. Which in my opinion, if it’s a good quality steak, it shouldn’t need any type of sauce. My boyfriend ordered the chicken which he said was decent. What we couldn’t stomach was the fact that we were paying $35+ for these entrees and our sides were frozen veggies & a couple of potatoes. My sides were some kind of potato caserole that was cold & a few veggies that looked like they came out of a frozen bag that was microwaved. My boyfriend had fingerling potatoes as his side which came out hard as a rock & there was probably only 4-5 potatoes on his plate. We couldn’t understand how the restaurant was so empty on a friday night because everything else was perfect. The food was just not good quality which was very disappointing. I was there over a year ago & the food was delicious. I’m not sure what changed since then. Maybe they were trying to cut costs 😐

    I had mentioned when I made the reservation it was my wife's birthday and would like to do a small recognition. At that time I was told words to the effect of ‘we will take care of it’ or ‘we can do something for her.’ Our server told me after the meal that she was given no birthday information for my wife but was then nice enough to wish her a happy birthday. As we left, the greeter wished my wife a happy birthday. Although this was a minor part of a nice lunch, I’ll let you (Greenfield) figure out how to fix this for future customers.

    Food and service were impeccable (however, no draft beer, only bottled). If I'm allowed to get picky, only downside was a slightly fussy baby who finally settled down about 1/2 into the meal. Great place for celebrations of special occasions. Shook the hand and complemented the chef who was working in the kitchen on a Saturday night but came out to press the flesh; he was a White House chef for Bush and Clinton who must of eaten very well! We sure did!

    The mushroom soup, Caesar salad and scallop entree were excellent. The pork schnitzel was so thin, the pork was non-existent. Don’t get the shrimp cocktail! Always a lovely place to dine, but the food is 50/50.

    Delicious appetizers and entrees, plus yummy desserts from the chef. My filet mignon was like butter and my husbands salmon was delicious. Portions are the correct size (not huge but really enough for dinner). And the bartended made a great cocktail. We really liked their wine list also. The Executive chef had worked at The White House for 3 presidents and there are great photos and White House place settings to make this an interesting visit. We've met friends here twice and have loved it both times. Really classy and great food!

    Another great meal at The Greenfield Restaurant! It was perfect to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. Once we were seated the night was flawless! Our server was amazing! Right down to the singer.. perfect! But the hostess was a bit curt/cold to my husband and myself, we were a bit early for our reservation and even say that to the hostess. And had no problem waiting until our table was ready. We knew we were early. But we were met with an instant attitude and she became even more frustrated with us when our reservation was under a different name than we gave.(My name on Opentable was different, unknown to me at the time) She offered for us to sit at the bar and get a drink, while we waited. We opted to wait outside until our table was ready (15 mins). We’ve been here before (winter 2021) and it was a great experience from beginning to end. But this time around, the beginning was a bit rocky, but ended on a fabulous note. Will be back again, hoping it was just a off night for the hostess.

    We were seated and ignored for over 30 minutes without water & bread service while all of the other diners were tended to. It was our 25th anniversary and the staff was inattentive to our table. Another table had to flag down the chatty manager to tell her we were waiting for service and she was rather unapologetic. Perhaps because she heard me call her useless? The overall experience was not good and the food was not worth mentioning. Not the way I had hoped to spend my 25th wedding anniversary. Oh - the card signed by the staff was the ONLY nice part of the evening.

    Our experience was overall excellent. One quibble. I thought that the lunch menu was a bit limited and unvaried. We've come for lunch a number of times over the years and the menu (as I recall) has not changed. The quality and portion size has remained uniformly excellent.

    Food was generally good, not great. French onion soup was fine. Scallops were small and a tad underdone, with no caramelization one would expect when pan sauteed, however the accompanying risotto was good. Pork schnitzel was good although the very few pieces of spaetzle was quite humorous. I played "hunt for the spaetzle". Hahaha. Cream puff for dessert was tasty, but a bit overcooked. Overall, a reasonable experience, but not one to rush back again.

    1st time at the restaurant and I was expecting so much more. 1st off, there was a large party of adults and children. The parents were seated at one table and children at another. While the parents did try to keep the children quiet, it was still loud and not a very relaxing environment. This large party should have been sat in a separate room so as not to disturb other diners. The food was fair. I ordered the scallops with risotto and corn. The restaurant is in Lancaster county and it is corn season. I would have expected to have more than 5 kernels of corn in my meal. On a good note, Natalie was very friendly and personable. It appeared as though she was the only server in the bar area but she did a good job of keeping up with everything even with the large party. The piano music was wonderful and helped drown out how loud the room was. I am glad I tried the restaurant.

    We were going to the Sight and Sound Theater afterwards and only had about 1 hour. We told our waitress up front and she jumped right on it. Promptly took our orders and made sure we had them in plenty of time. We had eaten a late lunch so no one in our group of 8 was terribly hungry so we each split an entree between couples and ordered a couple of appetizers. She divided the dinners for us! Really appreciated it. Great service and great food. We will definitely go back again next time we are in town.

    Our reservation was made months ago for the special request to sit near the piano. We come here every two years after seeing a show at Sight and Sound so it’s been a tradition. When we arrived this year the host put us in a separate room and upon request he did move us into the piano bar area which we were very grateful for. the cocktails were amazing. The fish on special was top-notch! ! the vegetables and potatoes complimented the grouper perfectly. our waiter/bartender was top-notch as well! Listening to the piano player and singer just topped off a wonderful night. Can’t wait to return to this amazing restaurant.
