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.

It Was Our Second Choice

We tried to get into a nearby restaurant after a lacrosse game and they were full, so they recommended to try Fenz, which was at the other end of the same building. We were seated quickly and were very happy with the whole experience. Their deviled eggs appetizer was very good and we all had... read more

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

We went here for my sister's birthday. Highlights were the rolls and my folks said the salmon was very good. Lowlight was discovering that the root vegetables that came with my meal included frozen peas. Will not be returning

Our group was a group of eight with varied food issues. Chris, our waiter, was efficient, kind, funny (in a good way!) and really "knew his stuff". Food was not only excellent but beautifully prepared. The setting was lovely--fun, easy to talk and just fun to look at the beautiful surroundings. The chopped salad was full of flavor. I can't...

This restaurant was recommended to my wife and me by our innkeeper and it was truly great! The ambiance is stellar - a large beautiful winding staircase right in the middle of the first floor dining room leads you up to the slightly more casual, but equally delightful, second floor dining area and bar. The service is really very friendly... More

Nice ambiance - typical gastropub. Food was good, but was not impressive. Pricy for what you get - not a good value. Good place to go if trying to impress your friends with atmosphere, but not if you value good meal at good price.

Started our evening at the Arts Hotel but the bar tender was a little snotty for our taste. Went to Fenz. Served by Steve. Wonderful evening with great service, food and drinks. Will definitely return.

Friendly and tasty, this place serves a lot of traditional Lancaster fare (including the fried pickles - recommended). A good romantic or friendly dinner spot.

Seafood specials such as scallops were outstanding. The bar serves quality drinks and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is excellent for a business dinner or a special night out.
