The restaurant features a contemporary bistro-style menu, formed from the idea that casual dining can be stylish, and that some of our favorite comfort foods can benefit with the remix of contemporary flair. In addition to revised classics, the menu includes small plate "tastes" to share or enjoy with a cocktail. Daily specials from Chef Daniella Ward complete the culinary scenario by offering inspirations of the moment, influenced by the season.

Nice atmosphere

American food in a very nice setting. There is an outdoor balcony seating area but that is not as nice as inside due to road noise. Meatloaf and Mac + cheese were good. Bar and drinks are first rate. They have a fresh Sangria that is quite good.

Good food, service and atmosphere. Looks like a great place for happy hour also in upstairs bar. Good location for before or after ballgame fare.

I got a call from the boss I'm coming into town tomorrow how about we get together for dinner. I waited until the morning, made a few calls to some friends looking for something new and exciting. I know I should've went with something reliable but 2 of my friends suggested FENZ. The atmosphere was trendy yet warm and friendly,... More

Could have been so much better. Poor execution. Ingredients were fresh, but 3 of 4 dinners completely off. Two of them cold. Not warm. Cold. The other not what we ordered. Round of free drinks nice gesture but would have preferred proper execution from wait staff and chef.

You would never guess from the building facade, that there was a chic dining space inside. Be prepared to climb the stairs to the larger seating area but it's a lovely space. Tlhe menu is not large but diverse enough to offer great options. There are good fish options...scallops with cous cous was delicious, salmon was served on an interesting... More

Get a drink and some fried pickles! Entrees are usually great. Make sure you save room for one of their great deserts.

Had a light lunch here that was basic but the tomato soup was amazing. The bartender we had was very efficient and on point. Great hangout!

We stopped in for dinner last week after a spur of the moment decision to drive up to Lancaster for the weekend. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the service really prompt. The menu was suprisingly sparse (one page total) but we all found something to order. We started with deviled eggs and bruschetta for appetizers (yes, quite a weird... More

I would gladly overlook flaws at a restaurant, if the food redeems itself. Fenz is not at all fine quality dining. The duck I ordered was tough, salty and cold when it reached our table. My friend had a tuna that was far from fresh. On top of the high priced below average food; the waiter who served us was... More
