The Greenfield Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.
Wonderful service and great food
I took my parents here for their 69th wedding anniversary and the staff could not have been nicer, from the hostess welcoming them with "Happy Anniversary!", seating us at the best table, the waitress being so nice to them, and putting a candle in their dessert. And we all loved the food very much. The peanut butter pie is fantastic! Thanks for making it a very special anniversary, Greenfield!
Noisy - Disappointed
We have been to Greenfield's Restaurant many times but this time were very disappointed, both in the ambience and service. There was a jazz singer in the lounge (it was jazz night) who was so excruciatingly loud that we had to ask to be moved - we could not even carry on a conversation with one another. (Other diners expressed their dismay as well as to the noise level). We were moved to another room and we were the only diners in the room - the room was chilly but did warm up. I don't know why a quality restaurant would have a jazz night during the holiday season when most diners were there to have a nice meal and visit with friends and family they haven't seen for a while. Our waitress was very indifferent and basically just delivered our food and that was it. Not personable at all. Our entrees were just ok - nothing to rave about. The crab cocktail appetizer was outstanding though.
Will probably not return, which is too bad, as we have been going there with the same group of friends for many years.
As an aside to Open Table - we had tried to make a reservation at Greenfield's for New Year's Eve through Open Table about a month and a half ago. We were old that our selected time was not available. As a result, we went the previous night. After dinner while waiting to leave, I was chatting with the hostess and told her we had tried to get a reservation for New Year's Eve through Open Table for their restaurant but were told nothing was available. She seemed surprised and checked the reservation book - they did have a table available for New Year's Eve at the time we selected. Obviously, we did not take that table and go back New Year's Eve after having just eaten there.
Good food , especially rack of lamb; warm food ,not hot; service hit and run ,too rushed;watered down Coke;little pricey; was nicer 10 years ago; was noted that it was an anniversary dinner on reservation , but no one else noted it ; will visit again in future, probably for the lamb if it is hot ;
Good but a little pricey
We ere a party of 8 and the food and service were good. The wine cellar was quiet and enjoyable. We did thin they should quote the prices of the non mere specials ahead of time. My wife ordered one,the Snapper, and it was very pricey to our standards.
