The Greenfield Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food and service were very good. The restaurant is an old house with many separate rooms. Our room was very plain with nothing on the walls and dead flowers at the table. We just wish the decor was better. We would definitely go back the next time we visit the Lancaster area.
We were tourists celebrating our anniversary near Lancaster. When we made the OpenTable reservation we had mentioned it was our anniversary and requested a quiet table. When we arrived we were told the dining room was closed, and we were seated at a table in the bar which was very noisy. For appetizers, we ordered different soups, which were OK although my onion soup had as much melted cheese as it did soup. For entrees, we both ordered filet mignon steaks cooked medium. They were both cooked well done, and were only slightly warm. The sides weren't particularly tasty. The service was acceptable, but just barely. Overall, it was a very disappointing dining experience.
We were in town for a show at the American Music Theater. Stayed at a B&B and had dinner with you. Lovely night so sat outside. Food was excellent, service very good. Only negative was that we as ordered your prime rib which was very large and asked if we could have a bag with some ice for the leftovers, (2 large hungry dogs)! Apparently you don't have any plastic bags. Hopefully, someones dogs feasted that night. The beef was delicious.
We were seated outdoors in the beautiful patio area. Although there was a bit of a smell, it is Lancaster county, so I don't know if that was particularly their fault. The food was good and the server always made sure our water glasses were full, which was a bit annoying while we were trying to have conversation, but I know it was well intended. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience with good local cuisine, and I would definitely recommend it for a date.
Lunch with a friend was wonderful! We both had the soup and salad combo- red pepper and crab soup and strawberry chicken salad. We ended with creme brûlée which was delicious. The specialty drink"flirtini " was very good. The service was exceptional and I think we were there for 3 hours socializing.
My two daughters and I had dinner on Saturday night before going to the American Music Theater for a show. This was our first visit and we will definitely be returning. The food was excellent, service was very good plus we had the added enjoyment of a gentleman playing the piano. It was a very enjoyable dinner and I look forward to returning.
I was a little disappointed in the food. The salad dressing seemed a bit watery and while the food was good, I would not call it excellent. I have eaten here a few times over the past seven years and to my mind, the food used to be excellent. I would call it over priced at this time.
Our dinner was excellent. We thought the timing of each course was perfect. Some may consider the service as "slow" but they are missing the point of enjoying a great dinner with the company you are with. We really enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant, especially the piano player who provided a relaxing atmosphere.
The Greenfield has long been our place to dine for special occasions. We had dinner on Feb 11 for Valentine's. Our server was good, ambiance good, but the food was so disappointingly not up to par.
French onion soup was lukewarm, the crab cakes, scallops were room temp and the grilled lemon slice was cold! We didn't want to complain as it would dampen the evening. Sorry to report this but thought you should know
This meal started out great. We'd told them it was a (very) special occasion, and they gave us a great table, perhaps the best in the house. The service was delightful, and the food started off well enough with a tasty appetizer and salad. When we got to the entree, it was anything but notable. It was under-seasoned and overcooked salmon. And the "lemon-butter sauce" was anything but lemon or butter. We couldn't put our finger on this sauce blandly sitting on the side of the plate like the pour on the dish was missed, but it dawned on us that the braised kale (tasted like it was simply boiled) on the bottom of the dish wasn't properly drained, so the water left in the kale soaked into the sauce, making it water-y and spinach-y. When we explained the disappointment to our server, she was apologetic, but didn't offer to change it out.
Then we got the bill and found that -- by choosing caesar salad over house salad, we were given $5.50 up-charges per plate. For a salad that's supposed to be included!! It was a great salad, but I wouldn't have ordered one separate from my meal. The up-charge (not on menu) took us aback. So ultimately, what started as a fantastic evening ended disappointing.
The service and ambiance were so good we'd be happy to give it another chance, but we'd need to know their kitchen had its act together first.
My friends, myself and my husband had a GREAT time. Our waitress Brittany was exceptional! She was delightful, professional, informative and a delight. Kudos to Greenfield for hiring such great staff and having great food. Also, the restaurant has great ambiance. We will be back!
This restaurant has the potential for 5 stars...but it falls short on several things...#1. The apps were ok...calamari were bland and the beef eggrolls were, well, beefy...not very creative....#2 dinner menu....waitress recommended the crabcakes which were made with substandard crab, tasted strong...we also had steak which was good, but came with nothing....scallops were very good, fish was good, beet salad was good and large enough for 2... desserts were pretty standard...creme brulee, peanut butter pie.....the total bill was 600 for 6 people...which is ok if the atmosphere and food were over the top...but i really couldnt rave about either...wasnt really bad, but wasnt really great either
We have been there in the past, but this visit did not match up to our previous experiences. The table where we were seated was near the kitchen door. Each time a staff member exited the kitchen, we would hear a thump sound of the door banging.
The food was ok, but on the dry side.
The wait staff was efficient and professional
