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.

This is a great restaurant. I love sitting at the bar enjoying the specialty cocktails and bar food, especially the fried pickles. I'd never had them before, but they are fantastic! I also went to a catered event there and the food was impeccable and delicious. I will be going back for dinner.

If you are a diner who likes unique dishes and drinks in a chique but relaxed atmosphere, this is the place for you! We can't say enough about the seasonal delights that Fenz highlights on their dinner and drink menus. The service is always impeccable along with the presentation of each item ordered.

We went to this restaurant without a reservation after attending a performance at the local center of performing arts. The restaurant was reasonably full and we were seated fairly promptly. Our waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable and the service was prompt. I understand from a local that this is a great place for a "Happy Hour" - we hope to... More

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
