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.

We arrive at 7pm and was setting promptly to table which was our reservation time. Unfortunilty we were seated at a table in the corner that had two a/c floor vents under the table. Felt like a wind tunnel going up you legs, manager and hostess did address our concern by placing menus over the vents. Corrected the wind force, but still was like a cooler when unit came on up your legs. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer, unfortunately the calamari was not fried properly to proper crsipyness and was resting in the oil in the serving plate, was chewy and soggy. Next we ordered our main courses, took the kitchen 1.5 hour to get our order to table. My wife had seafood linguine, the red sauce needed seasoning, was very bland flavor, missing salt and pepper, cook need to taste his/her sauces. I had the scallops with risotto, 3 of the 4 scallops had a great pan sear crust, 4th one was not crusted at all. The risotto was over cooked and had a texture of oatmeal and all stuck together.
The waitress was excellent, kim was her name, but unfortunately the scheduler had her working the whole dining room we were seated in. This room needed at least two servers, she was running around like a chicken with her head cut off.

I would not advertise as a 5 star, only give it a 3 star at best

Not sure what was going on at the restaurant as it took a long time for a server to show up, provide a wine list and take orders and getting our food was another long wait. Kitchen or server, who knows. I like a leisurely dinner but this was strange. Not going back anytime soon.

The salmon was over cooked and the ribeye was more fat than meat. Definitely a very disappointing meal. Service was very slow but was at least friendly. The garden room was a nice atmosphere, but overall- I’m glad we had a gift card and didn’t waste our own money.

The food was great, the service even better as was the ambiance. Sadly as borderline edge vegetarians, there were not enough options to bring us back again. If it was not for the salads, and 2 appetizers we would have been out of luck. As it was I got the beef eggrolls. Again all else was above par so if one is not a vegetarian take all of the good comments, forget the rest and have a great time.

We’ve never been disappointed! The French Onion Soup is outstanding!!!

No matter what season, the menu is spot on.

It is always worth the 40 minute drive.

There were 5 of us and we all liked our dinners - Scallops, salmon, salad with a piece of salmon. The salmon dinner was a bigger piece of fish than the salmon on the salad. We sat on the patio which is beautiful and so pleasant!

I had booked our spot several weeks in advance and was told we would be in the wine cellar. I said this was fine or on the patio. We ended up being sat at a table right outside the kitchen door; not what I was expecting. Also, two people ordered the ribeye steak which ended up being extremely bad. It was not a ribeye and was way overcooked and just plain bad especially when you’re paying $36 for it. The side was not what was said it would be on the menu either. We did not complain at the restaurant since we were there with my family and my dad was paying for it and did not want to express our extreme disappointment.

Everything was amazing but the thing I will remember most is that they gave us an anniversary card when we walked in. I know that sounds strange but my wife and I go out to dinner for our anniversary every year and this is the first time the restaurant has thought to give us a card. It was that little touch that elevated our experience above every other place we've been.

The setting was lovely and the food fresh and perfectly presented. We had the Farmers salad with halibut - it was seasoned and pan seared and utterly delicious! The mustard vinaigrette on the salad complimented the fish so well! Our server was very kind and attentive, and the lovely woman seating the guests had a smile for everyone. We sat in the dining room, and look forward to coming back and sitting in the bar area or patio. Can’t wait to try other selections!

I ordered quiche with fruit. The quiche was good, but the fruit was disappointing. A small portion of red grapes and melon. The melon wasn’t ripe and the grapes weren’t as fresh as they could have been. The ice tea was cloudy and also didn’t taste fresh. I had expected better quality food.
