"The service was slow, the food disappointingly average and overpriced. Even the presentation was not up to par. My crab cake was served with what could have passed for hash brown potatoes. A beige plate of food with a splash of green. The pork and lamb portions were generous, but both dishes were fatty according to my adult children. Our starter was fried green tomatoes and ham biscuits, we weren't fans of either. This was not my first time for dinner, but my first time in quite a while. It may be a long while before we go back. $305.00 (for four) is way to much to spend on an average birthday celebration."

"Located in a historic bank building, Lightfoot's is long on ambiance with warm oak finishing and an oversized central fireplace. The service is fantastic, and they had live jazz while we were there. Easy walk to Downtown Leesburg shops."

"Everyone place has an off day - but this is two visits in a row that we've had serious issues. I'll keep to yesterday's visit in this review. Took almost an hour for our food to arrive after ordering; the bacon on the baked potato soup was barely cooked while the bacon on the chicken sandwiches had been put back on the grill and burned black in spots; my grilled cheese was literally cold when it arrived; fries were cold; tomatoes on chicken sandwiches were mushy like they had been refrigerated. One brusque apology from the server about the delay long before the food arrived . . . then he became very scarce. I think the chef/owner must have been away and underestimated the capabilities of those left in charge. One the way out, we passed the kitchen and someone that worked there (in a suit) appeared to be arguing with one of the wait staff. I really hate to write such negative reviews of a place that is usually wonderful . . . but they need to know."

"Three of us met for lunch. The waiter basically forgot about us. We had to ask a manager if we could get a waiter. The food is fine. Nothing adventurous but it's Leesburg. Perfectly good but if I didn't have another specific reason to go there, I wouldn't make a special trip just for Lightfoot."

"We have been to this restaurant several times and we are never disappointed. We love the atmosphere. The huge fireplace is beautiful and the layout of the restaurant works well. The lunch menu is quite extensive with something for everyone. Our wait person was attentive without being in our face. I know we will go back."

"Green fried to motors now comes with a piece of shrimp and extra 6 dollars for that?
French onion soup was filled with too much cheese
Crab cakes and hamburger were good
Spicy tomato soup was best
Chicken with risotto was blah

"Beautiful space, sat upstairs right next to the piano. Very romantic.
Food was okay. Got the mussels, duck, and finished with creme brulee. Really paying for the venue than the quality of the food.
Our server took maybe 5 minutes before he even greeted us. Did a fair job attending to us. Noticed later when another table was sat next to us that the same server covered the night's specials with them while he didn't do the same with us."

"Ingrid Gustavson never disappoints. Fabulous food, service and atmosphere with an imaginative and varied menu that always offers something new. From the relaxing garden patio to the classy, quiet dining room, visiting Lightfoot is always a treat."

"We booked for New Year's Eve at the last minute and got a reservation at 5:00, just when they were opening. They opened the doors exactly at 5:00 to us and a family but told us they were not ready. We spent the next ten minutes watching and listening to their setting up. We enjoyed the meal, once it started, but we felt that they were generally unaware of our presence while we waited for a table. That would have been fine at a diner, but at a restaurant where we spent nearly $300 for dinner for two (special New Year's menu), I expect a little more consideration for the customer, even a little elegance, even if they weren't quite ready on time."

"Recently took a group of 7 to Lightfoot for brunch. The specials menu included what they claimed is the "best" linguine with clams ever. Being a fan of that dish I ordered it and while claiming the best is always dangerous, this try was perhaps the worst I've ever had. The sauce tasted as if the cook had dumped a bottle of salt into the pot and made it nearly inedible. As I was with a large group I made the best of it and ate the clams, but left nearly all the pasta and sauce. I noted the salt issue to the waiter and emphasized that it was not just a matter of taste, rather the saltiness was overwhelming. The waiter said he told the manager who is apparently also the owner yet nothing more than a "sorry" was forthcoming. No offer to comp even one of the deserts that were ordered, let alone the entree, even though there was one bill. I can forgive a bad dish if the restaurant acknowledges they made a mistake. In my experience that acknowledgement usually manifests itself in some material way to make it up to the customer for a bad dining experience - not to mention leaving you hungry. The level of POOR customer appreciation I experienced is baffling so I will not be returning to nor recommending this restaurant."

"This is a first class location for a business lunch. The entire staff supports the customer from the time you enter the front door until you leave. If yo happen to pass the kitchen, you have a view of the prep and cook process, which shows how much pride is taken in the process. Very clean and very enjoyable dining. it was well worth the trip to Leesburg."
