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.

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

Went there onFriday night. Food was excellent and service was the same. I had the meatloaf with snap peas and mac & cheese. The mac and cheese was excellent with the bread crumbs on top. We sat upstairs - the upstairs was extremely comfortable and chairs were relaxing to sit at! Thanks!

This was my second visit to Fenz, which offers truly fine dining. You must try the pickles which are prepared french-fry style, but more elegantly of course. The dipping sauce the pickles are served with has a nice kick to it, but it might be too spicy for you if you have a low tolerance for spice. The salads are... More

Glad we found this restaurant on Line. Four of us had wonderful dinners. The Pot Roast was very tender and tasty as well as the salmon. The chopped salad was delicious. Nice atmosphere and good service.
