The Greenfield Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

On Oct 2 I made the reservation for two at 7;pm. we arrived there at 6;50 the hostess asked if we would like a high top table or we could eat outside,well I am a few weeks over a total knee replacement so a high top was out of the question and I didn't want to sit out in the dark . I was told that they had no tables and because they take walkins. It was not even 7:pm so I felt they should have had my table. We never got seated till7:45. I have eaten at this several times before however I will not go there again, We were very unhappy with the whole experience.Will not go back

We arrived early but ended up waiting 20 minutes past our reservation to be seated.
Once seated the loud noise from a nearby table encouraged me to request another table, not available. Night manager personally was engaged.After her encouragement and another 7-8 minutes the loud table exited. The meals were all good and the waiter was exceptional, and apologetic.
I would try another fine dining venue before I returned to the Greenfield.

We love the Greenfield Inn. Our 1st time there was to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, and this year we wanted to again enjoy our Wedding Anniversary there. This year was our 36th. We love the privacy of the "Wine Cellar" and the wonderful meal, and service. Be assured as long as you are there we will come back.

I took my wife to Greenfield for our 25th anniversary. In the reservation, I had asked for special seating, and they truly delivered! We were led to a private room in the wine cellar, where we were served a delicious meal. The atmosphere was great and so was the service. They were up and down the stairs for us several times. This was a great choice for our special date!

I really enjoyed making a meal from the variety of delicious appetizers and desserts. Service was accommodating and welcoming. The atmosphere was pleasant. Even though I was dining alone, I didn't feel out of place.

Greenfield Inn has good, dependable lunch and dinner options. Servers are polite, attentive, always checking back to make sure all diners are satisfied. Newly redecorated, the Greenfield Inn is sure to please the most discriminating.
I would not hesitate to bring a group in, everyone is always pleased and impressed by the quality of food. I brought two dear friends for lunch last week; we all had the soup and salad combo. The soups were delicious and salads fresh with fresh greens. In particular I had the soup special of the day which was creamy vegetable and the strawberry chicken salad, both outstanding.

My review may not take 50 characters, so---here goes: excellent in all categories.
Alex, the server is an asset to your company-people oriented,friendly and has a wonderful smile. He truly made our dining experience something we will remember. My out of town guest(TN) were totally impressed with your menu selection, the presentation and the quality of the food. Thank you.

We were looking for a place to eat in Lancaster that was somewhere between casual and fine dining. This was a decent choice. It wasn't outstanding, but the food was good and the place was friendly. We got there at 815 on a Friday and it was almost empty. The service was very good, and the chicken liver mousse was excellent, though there was just too much of it. We split a prime rib, and still took some home. OK if you aren't familiar with Lancaster and need a place to eat...

The food was amazing! We would eat there all the time if we could afford too. It's a bit pricey but worth it. It did get loud as the evening went on, but it was not that bad. There was a piano and there was a gentleman playing that was very good. It was an enjoying experience.

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.
