Description: 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.

Most of our dinner was a very pleasant experience. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, the food was excellent with great presentation. However the fellow at the door was strange. At one point he came to our table and loudly said hi and nothing else for a time. We finally figured out he was there to take our dessert order,... More

The restaurant is in part of an old factory building in Lancaster. It has an interesting ambiance, simple but elegant for an old building. We were in Lancaster for a wedding and had the first night to ourselves and using Tripadvisor selected a couple of restaurants as possible dinner venues. Our first choice was not available till very late so... More

During a week-long trip across Pennsylvania my wife and I were underwhelmed by the food we found, until we stumbled upon Fenz (because it happened to be within walking distance of the Lancaster Arts Hotel). They kindly fit us in without a reservation on a Friday night and then provided easily the best meal of our trip. The summer risotto,... More

Fenz is - without question - 'Fine Dining Experience - interesting & palate tempting cuisine served by men & women who treat Quality Service - as the only service we may offer. 'Permit me to begin with the seating - to restore a manufacturing building into arte' is a challenge - to do so with great awareness & respect for... More

I took my wife here for her birthday last weekend. The food was great, the prices very reasonable (no alcohol, we got out for under $65 with appetizer, salads, and entrees), and the service was great. Just the right level of attentiveness without seeming pushy and little things like getting new silverware with each course really made the difference. My... More

I was looking for something that could compete with the restaurants of .Philadelphia. On a Tuesday night in August, how crowded could this restaurant be? It was packed, so make sure you have reservations. And once you order, you will realize WHY it is packed - delicious, inventive menu; professional, friendly service; reasonable prices. Something for everyone on the menu.... More

Dined with friends, and we know staff from the Donecker's restaurant days (one of our old stomping grounds for wine pairing dinners). Drinks are expertly dispensed, food carefully prepared, and served elegantly. On par with the Loft for fine dining, though a more formal feel than the Loft. I like both restaurants, however, there is nothing on the Fenz menu... More

We dined rooftop on a summer night and had a really fantastic meal. Service was prompt and professional. Ambiance was cool and hip. I'd go back for sure. I've eaten at a number of places in Lancaster and this is now in the top two or three on my list.

A suggestion from the hotel and no more than 4 miles away. We arrived with no reservations and they sat us. Excellent atmosphere. Our waiter so attentive and everything was highly delicious. Not a place for families. My husband and I both had an appetizer, our meal, he had 2 drinks and I had 2 glasses of wine, and an... More
