Set in a 1780 Pennsylvania Stone Farmhouse with deep windows and a warm pleasant atmosphere this is a family owned and operated restaurant that is recognized as one of the Best of Lancaster for dinner, Sunday Brunch, patio dining, wine list, atmosphere and romantic settings. Although our building is over 225 years old we update our menu daily! Change is a good thing at the Greenfield. We specialize in next day delivery of seafood while we continue to cut our own steaks. You will enjoy selections from our wine list that has been recognized by the Wine Spectator Magazine for over 9 years. Our patio and balcony over looking the bar is among our customers favorite requests for lunch and dinner seating, while the wine cellar has two of the most romantic tables in the area. If you are traveling, this is one of those restaurants that you wish you had back home....and we are happy that you found us.

Great place, I proposed to my wife (years ago) there and the server was brilliant. Only one issue, you do not offer any vegetarian or vegan dinners and a restaurant of this caliber should, others do.

Food was delicious! We are from out of town and visited Lancaster for our anniversary. The Greenfield came up as a popular restaurant and it did not disappoint! The place was so charming and everyone we encountered was just lovely. We ordered the filet mignon and the sea bass with the calamari appetizer and it was delicious! We will definitely be back!!

Although everything was amazing, one thing that we were a little disappointed in this time is that I made our High top seating on March 2nd for Friday, March 19th @ 5pm.
We love the high tops near the bar and like that it is an actual option for the Greenfield when booking....upon arrival we were taken right past two empty high tops, I told the girl who sat us as we passed them, that we had reserved the high top, but she said oh they are both reserved. So I was confused.
One couple was seated soon after, but the other high top we normally like to sit at was unoccupied till closer to 6pm..So not sure if Open Table and their Booking system are in sync? We did enjoy our little table near the window & the piano and like I said it was very enjoyable as always.

The atmosphere was nice, but we were seated by a door to the outside patio positioned in the bar area. The service was slow, the door was mediocre as the scallop dish I ordered was watery when served. The dessert also was subpar and disappointing. My wife felt the same in regards to her filet mignon.

Nice atmosphere. Food was just "okay". Salmon on the salad was very good. Calamari was average at best. The grilled chicken on the salad lacked seasoning/flavor. The crab cakes were crisp and good on the outside but the inside was soggy and "mayonaisey". Selections for Chardonnay by the glass are very cheap varieties. I would have expected better by-the-glass selections.

I wanted to give this restaurant 5 stars, but the service and the kitchen made two considerable errors that affected the score. This was our first time at Greenfield Restaurant. The food is outstanding, and it is evident that the chef is top-notch. However, I ordered the scallops and *crunched* my way through shells. When I brought this to the attention of our server, I was told "I will let the kitchen know." When nothing happened, I told another server, who said the same. No one came out of the kitchen to inquire, nor did the manager come over to the table. I hope this review brings this to the attention of the owner and the chef so they can ensure the experience is not repeated with another customer.

My wife and I consider The Greenfield "our" restaurant, and have eaten there regularly for over 13 years since before we were married. We even held our wedding rehearsal dinner there. Our experience at a wine cellar table on 2/26/21 was one of the best we've had to date. My wife's HUGE lobster tails were the best either of us ever saw or tasted. My scallops were also enormous, and cooked to perfection. The food and atmosphere are easily the best in Lancaster County. The variety in their wine cellar seems to have suffered a bit under oppressive COVID regulations, but we still found a good bottle. Please keep up the amazing work Chef Mueller, we have yet to find your equal.

First time we ate here and I am sure we will go again. The chef is a former White House Chef and has cooked for multiple US Presidents. My wife and I both chose a different fish option and both were great. Cooked perfect, outstanding sauce and veggie mix with it too.

While the restaurant ambience was very nice , the food was only so-so. We were expecting much higher quality from a former White House chef, and for the prices charged. We may return to give the place one more try -- they did have excellent drinks, a wonderful soup-of-the-day, and a killer braised short rib eggrolls appetizer.

What an unexpected surprise... We were looking for a light lunch before our show at Sight and Sound... We were thrilled. Great service and atmosphere. Food was delicious and we had a great time.
Wife had the salad with cashews and chicken as well as the sandwich on a croissant. I had the quiche and fruit with the shrimp as my app. Great deserts too. We will be going back for dinner in the very near future.

Very much enjoyed our Valentine's Dinner in lovely surroundings with great service. The menu was a little more limited than usual due to the special nature of the evening but it was carefully and thoughtfully planned out. The pianist was very talented and this created a lovely atmosphere. Thank you!

Have not been their in years and the overall food quality, preparation and taste was extremely disappointing! For the price is was really sad. It really made me think that they do not understand that people in Lancaster know food quality, prep, etc, It was a Valentine's Day Dinner with a reduced menu and the sides were mostly the same and not creative or natural (shaved carrots, one cauliflower and green beans unseasoned - Come on!. Both soups were average, but the presentation was (one star). The Onions and Mushrooms on the Prime Rib (up charge) were done really well, but the Prime Rib had no flavor on the char. So, without paying for the mushroom and onions, that would have been bland. The crab cakes were overly moist due to filler (crackers, etc.) not worth the $32 price tag.
The bloodymary had zero spice/seasoning and the butter was cold along with the bread that was not made in house.

Was so excited to finally book this and bring my wife there and for the $170 dinner for 2 people I felt absolutely robbed. Please take down the White House accolades if you are going to draw naive Lancaster Patrons into a meal who's quality you can get at a portion of the price at Outback.

Really disappointed because we were so looking forward to this dinner and celebrating this time together.

Would certainly appreciate a call from management and possible compensation - it was that disappointing for the price!!

Thank you!
