Always a hit with out of town guests. Service, food selection and the ability to cater to dietary needs. Highly recommend. Earlier in the month dined with another couple and had a lovely evening with music on Friday night.

This is our standby restaurant for special occasions and was there for our daughter's 21st birthday (her choice). It did not disappoint. Food was outstanding as always. They have the best calamari in Lancaster. We did have a snafu regarding wine selection and ended up with a very expensive (albeit nice) bottle of wine that raised the cost of our bill and eyebrows, needless to say. The wait staff was apologetic and owner took the time to remedy the bill and call me personally to let me know things were reconciled. I couldn't have asked for more and will certainly return for our next special occasion!

Once again, Greenfield proves it is a great restaurant and special place. A big group of us took my dad here for Father's Day. Greenfield has become our family's special occasion place. The food was excellent. The crab cakes are really good, the salmon is always great, and the horseradish potatoes are so good! And the service is wonderful. The little extras like the host taking the kids in our group on a tour of the restaurant and then after dinner, taking pictures of us outside were so appreciated and helped make it a special evening. Thanks Greenfield!
I Thank the staff for a Outstanding Dinner.
Thank You to the Staff of The Greenfield Restaurant, We were visiting Lancaster County from out of town, for the weekend. The Greenfield Restaurant made our night out, a night to remember. This was a wonderful place to have a romantic dinner with my wife of 30 years. I would recommend anyone visiting Lancaster Co. that would like to have a nice dinner whether for Business, Special occasions or for a nice dinner to visit The Greenfield Restaurant. Your guest will remember and be impressed with your choice. The Restaurant also has a very extensive Wine List to choose from, to match your dinner and palate.
The restaurant has several nice seating areas. We chose the bar area which is very nice, views of porch seating and outside. Also piano player is located here and plays very nice dinner tunes. Service is excellent, food very well presented and delicious. Wine selection is very good and reasonable priced. We always enjoy Saturday dinner here.
Good, Not Great
Our dinner at Greenfield was ok, but nothing special. I thought the prices were a bit high for the quality of the food. The bread was amazing, easily the best part of the meal! I had the prime rib special, which came with potato wedges and mixed vegetables. The prime rib looked great but was a little tough and dry. I had asked for medium rare but I think it was closer to medium. The potatoes were also dry and the veggies were bland. My husband had the pork chop and he said it was salty. The sides were piled on top of the chop and were more of a topping than actual sides. He left hungry.
Disappointed in food and service
We have eaten there before....reason why we came back enjoyed it always..this time, totally disappointed with only 3 tables in dining room....service was very slow. when meal did come.. Scallops were not done....half raw.... 4 on plate, and left 2 of them..... all in all, for the price, not at all worth it.
Where's the bread?
I had a nice chicken and cashew nut salad for lunch and some ice tea. I was disappointed that they didn't see fit to include some bread or a roll. The waiter said there was date nut bread for purchase, but I was not interested in dessert bread -- just wanted a crust of French bread or a small roll.

Such a pleasant surprise to find a great place to eat and relax. The live music, great service ( I asked to have us moved away from the kitchen) and very good meal is a guarantee that we will come back next time we are in Lancaster PA. The hostess and waited could not be more personable and the owner stopped by to say hello. Very nicely done
We had dinner last weekend with our fingers crossed that it would be as wonderful as it was when we last dined, which was over ten years ago...and it was. Actually it was better than we remembered. The portions were very generous and the wine list was impressive. Our entrees were rack of lamb and prime ribs. Both were done exactly as ordered and were extremely tender. We would most definitely return when in the area
Everything came together perfectly on our most recent visit. We started at the bar and enjoyed a drink and some nice conversation and then we were seated in the wine cellar which has the best ambience in Lancaster. My wife and our friends very much enjoyed our visit together and the food and service were on point. We enjoyed ourselves so much we didn't realized we had stayed 30 minutes past closing time. Great experience!
Good food, great service but don't get a Martini
Our only complaints were with the cocktails. I had the Lemon Drop Martini, which was the worst I have ever had - no lemon taste. I sent it back once and the second one was no better. My husband and friend ordered the Manhattans. They sent it back once as it was way too much Vermouth. The second time was not much better either but my husband decided to keep it and our friend sent it back again. Either the bartenders don't have the right equipment to make a drink or they don't have the knowledge. I would got back again but only drink wine. Kelli, our waitress was great and had to carry everything upstairs.
Excellent Experience on a busy Valentines Day
First time eating at the Greenfield. Had an awesome table on the 2nd floor overlooking the bar. Loved the list of high end cocktails. Salad dressing was homemade. The food was exceptional and wait staff very attentive and experienced. I was pleasantly surprised simply because on a huge weekend like Valentines Day typically the service and the food quality are diminished because of the volume. Not the case here!
Why 3* & Not 4*
Everything but the prime ribs were excellent. The prime ribs were so-so at best, not the best cut of meat. The appetizers (crab cocktail & onion soup) were great. The entree that my spouse had (filet mignon) was great. The desert (creme puff with ice cream) was yummy. We have been going to the Greenfield for some time and will go again, but couldn't give it more than 3* this time.
Great special occation restaurant
We will enjoy The Greenfield for special occasions! It's a little high-priced for everyday dining, but the food, service, and ambience are all outstanding! There is a full bar and a very long and full wine list - however high in cost. We will enjoy going back 2-3 times a year!

We had a nice, large table in a bit of an alcove, which was great. Service was professional as always. The food was the usual high quality Greenfield food we've come to expect; however, diners in our party found the mashed potatoes too horseradishy to eat and the spätzle almost too strong with the herbs. Not a big deal. Staff was very accommodating to a member of our party who experienced a minor medical issue while we were there.
