Each time my husband and I have visited Altana, we experience the best service and such a lovely and tasty meal! They are currently renovating so we were taken to the second floor and the room was beautiful, no one else was there, and we were treated like VIP's. We absolutely love their truffle fries and you can't beat the Altana Burger. Highly recommend this little Lancaster gem!

Cool spot. We ordered the burgers and asked for medium however, most all of our burgers were at least medium well. Besides that the service was good and the prices were fair. The rooftop was closed which was the reason I booked the place for my friends birthday and there was no mention of that until we got there.

Food was good, but service and wait time for the food was not great at all. We waited at least 45 min for our food, which was a pasta dish and flatbread pizza.

This is a lovely rooftop restaurant with beautiful views of the city. The food was very good and our waitress was friendly and attentive. The only issue we had was that the food was extremely slow to arrive. Fortunately we weren't going anywhere after dinner, and enjoyed the extra time with each other. I highly recommend.

The meal was delicious and very well prepared. Service was slow. So slow that our waiter recommended we do not order dessert because there was “no telling how long we’d have to wait” ... for a slice of cheesecake. I would still return because slow service is understandable under these conditions.

Altana was fantastic. Although skies were overcast, the views were still beautiful and the views were fantastic. My only regret was not getting chicken on my market salad because it was the prettiest and most delicious salad I have had in quite some time.

My wife and I are in our 70s and highly appreciate good food, atmosphere and good service. We anticipated average food, but were impressed; the service was good and the overlook of Lancaster is always enjoyable. We encourage our friends to enjoy dinner or a drink and an appetizer.
The metal chairs should have cushions for a bit more comfort.

This was our 2nd time at Altana. Since we don't live in the city, we enjoy being up high, being able to take it all in. The food was terrific; I had scallops and I find that many places don't know how to make them. The chef at Altana had them spot-on, and the mushroom "gravy" that accompanied them was very tasty.

A perfect outside dining spot with rooftop views of downtown’s courthouse, Greist building, and steeples. Excellent food and nicely presented, good beer and wine choices. We will return with friends...or just the two of us. Try it!
